    You didn't hear one of the most influential metal bands of the 00's before? :D

    I feel old. Here have some moar.




    As far as the track goes... I'm not sure if I was hoping they'd put out more of the same (which this is) or would have tinkered with the formula and come up with something that'd have a million other bands copying them all over again.

    8 string guitars just sound too low to me. It's impossible to get a nice, non-farty sound from them heavily distorted. And I say that as a diehard 7 string user, which I find is already stretching the limits with standard tuning.

    They play 6 strings (Dan = PRS, Pin = Blackmachine), 99% of their songs are either tuned flat with the lowest string sometimes in Db for the one-finger power chord effect , or an octave lower than the 5th string (Ab) for the heavy drone sound.

    Thanks for those SiKth links

    just listened to quite a lot of those, and I must say I'm not too keen on the early stuff, SikTh - Philistine Philosophies is a good song, so I'll keep an ears open for there new albums

    I like some of five finger deathpunch songs but some of their newer stuff seems to have terrible lyrics & flow :(

    example (wrong side of heaven):
    you're not made of stone?! :confused: :rolleyes:
    Repetition :(

    Also some terrible songs - eg: "Burn MF" "Dot Your Eyes" "Mama Said Knock You Out"

    I've not listened to "Got Your Six" album yet
    Being honest even some of their earlier albums only had a few ok songs :(

    Actually while we're at it, the C, D, F and G albums weren't bad either (I know everyone loves Altars of Madness and Blessed Are The Sick, but I'm not old enough to get really nostalgic over the late 80's/early 90's death metal production - Fisher over Barnes type of thing if you know what I mean...).

    Got tickets to see Slipknot in Leeds next Feb, I have never seen them live believe it or not. I'm really looking forward to it!

    I've been getting into Ghost recently. I did think they were a bit of a gimmick at first but after listening to a couple of songs I'm now hooked!
