Why don't we already have this thread?

One of the greatest bands on the planet, fronted by Devin Townsend. Alien, The New Black, and City are their finest works.

Love?

Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing and Ziltoid are waaaaaaaaay better than The New Black, by the way.

Also, protip: As awesome as his music is, Devin, like all people named Devin, is annoying as a human being and comes across as homosexual. True facts.

Ziltoid isn't an SYL album, but yeah, I agree that it's better.

I depersonalize musicians I like as much as I possibly can, so I wouldn't really know.

He radiates gayness, that's all you need to know.

See, I used to like Gaahl, but when I heard about that thing with Infernus I lost all respect for him. Also, the albums that have him on vocals are the worst Gorgoroth albums.

Yeah, the Infernus thing was a load of bullshit, but the Gorgoroth albums with him in them are some of my favorite albums. They might not be as great as Pentagram and Antichrist, but Destroyer, Twilight of the Idols, and Incipit Satan are all excellent releases.

Their last album is the worst Gorgoroth album, and Gaahl had nothing to do with it.

No way man, Quantos is easily their best album this side of the year 2000. I consider the first three Gorgoroth albums classics of the genre and essential for anyone with more than a passing interest in extreme metal, the only album with Gaahl on vocals that I would even call essential for a Gorgoroth fan is Destroyer.

Twilight of the Idols and Incipit Satan aren't very good at all, and Ad Majoram is complete crap.

Quantos is good, but nothing compared to the first 2 album.

Twilight had some good songs on it.

I love Destroyer, Twilight, and Incipit Satan. Ad Majorem was pretty weak, though. Don't much care for Quantos, personally.

I think we can all agree, though, that nothing they've done really compares to the first two.

The first two, in all of it's cheese, was so evil sounding.

The first two are some of my favorite Black Metal. Ever.

Nothing compares to the first two? How about the third one, what the hell is with the lack of love for Under the Sign of Hell? I'd even say it is better than Antichrist, fucking freaks.

Also, there was no cheese on the first two albums, it sounds authentically evil because they actually believed in what the songs were about. They were dead serious.

They were a pan of molten mozzarella. Hat was so ridiculous that it somehow made him one of the best black metal vocalists.

Under the Sign of Hell was ok, just kind of worn out sounding and it's missing Hat. Antichrist is my favorite of the first three.

Hat is one of the best black metal vocalists, only ones I like more are Dead (obviously) and Garm. Possibly Legion too.

I personally like Antichrist the least out of the first three, this isn't saying much though, because I like all of them so damn much.

I'm with Cthulhu on Under the Sign of Hell. It's really good, but I just always find myself just wanting to put on one of the first two after listening to it. And Antichrist is the best.

Honestly, I prefer Destroyer to Under the Sign of Hell.

I love everything the band's done minus Ad Majorem and Quantos anyway, so it's not really that big a deal.

Gaahl was gay even before he came out as a homosexual. I mean, I have no problem w/ gays at all, but Gaahl was always a fag if you get my drift.

Just a fucking loser. Like Malefic, but not quite THAT bad. Very few people can actually be that gay, even when they're trying.

Satyr comes pretty close. I hate admitting that I like Satyricon's first three albums, just because Satyr is such a twat.
