Old thread is old.

Very old.

Though I still say Unexpect is the best, then followed by Patton's bands.

Any sane person says that Unexpect is fucking annoying and Mike Patton is an untalented man partly responsible for ruining metal.

In this case the word 'sane' is interchangable with 'intelligent'.

No, you really didn't. Avante-Garde music isn't 'fun' it isn't 'unique' and it isn't 'interesting'. It is just fucking annoying. Worst genre EVER. Shit bands, fucking stupid fans. 80-90% worse than Opeth fans.

The thing is that 2 of the three modifiers you used are completely subjective. "Fun" and "interesting" are entirely in the perception of the listener. Of course you have already closed yourself off to what isn't really even a genre to begin with, but it doesn't mean others have and it's really not even a criticism at all. As for unique, it really depends on the band. But if your main criticism is that Avant-Garde music isn't unique, then why the FUCK do you listen to black metal?

I think my beef with the avant-garde or experimental label comes from the historical trend that many experiments fail ;d

Actually...it is 'unique', as well as innovative, and extremely 'interesting'...your opinion is just that, YOURS. Darkthrone fucking sucks even in terms of black metal standards(I dare say that's not even just my opinion), but you don't see me crying about it('til now). Just because your too afraid to step outside of the confines of your "fav" genre, doesn't mean the rest of us are.

I frequently listen to things other than black metal, in fact I listen to a little bit of pretty much everything that doesn't suck. There is no artistic merit or musical merit to anything in this terrible genre. Mike Patton is a fucking idiot who should be exterminated. Furthermore, Darkthrone is one of the best bands ever. They are clearly better than any band you like, unless you like Manilla Road.

@Phil I don't care about music being unique, all the words in parenthesis are mocking people that enjoy the genre, Avante-Garde faggots typically are Opeth fans on steroids with the pretentious 'I'm better and smarter than you because the music I listen to is complex'.

I think there's a VAST difference in our respective definitions of what "suck" is...and yes, every band you like is clearly better than any band I do*snicker*, you're a funny guy, however...Knutfail, someone just took your spot.

No, I wouldn't say every band that I like is better than every one you like (unless you only like Avant-Garde shit) but Darkthrone is the second best band ever.

Whether the music is truly "unique" is not the attribute that most fans of avant-garde are valuing when they use the word. The difference and variation is what some people are drawn to in the avant-garde genre. Maybe these aren't attributes you value, but it certainly doesn't make the music inferior because of this. Also, I fail to see why complexity is a bad thing.... I'm certain it can be overdone as can any such feature, but I rather hate simplistic music, and that IS overdone quite often.

Also, you didn't use even one parenthesis....I believe the term you're looking for is "quotations."

Parenthesis, quotations, it doesn't matter. I'm still right and Avant-Garde is still dumb.

Avant Garde is usually pretty terrible, save for a couple of bands.

Portal FTW.

You should join a debate team. I'm certain you'd never lose, since belligerence is the key attribute required for the "sport."

I was briefly on the debate team in high school, I got kicked off for debating the existence of God in a Catholic school. I actually was quite good about it, I convinced a Jewish student that Aryans are superior.
