What's wrong with hippies?

As far as music goes, I have some Death Metal(very little, most of the lyrics are about things I have strong moral opposition to. mainly war.), I manly listen to it when I'm in the mood for screamin horror movie sounds. lol. That doesn't happen often, as I prefer singing. My favorite vocalists are Corey Taylor and Sully Erna. Corey goes quickly from extremely good, melodic singing to practically ripping his vocal chords out yelling and screaming, like no one I've ever heard. Sully just has this sort of growl in his singing that I can't get enough of.

I also, like Makasi/Hobbit, listen to Avenged Sevenfold, and ATR. You'll notice something these bands have in common: The progression of their vocal styles. Both started out as bands that screamed all their lyrics, then gradually integrated singing, and now their songs are predominantly sung. I'd suggest you give All That Remains another chance Rel, here's some of their newer stuff, which I think will be to your liking.

This could turn very political very quickly.  I'm all for discussing politics, but it is against the forum rules.  If anyone wants to, feel free to PM me.


As for the music, All That Remains is a really good band, as ThreadJack pointed out.  One other thing to consider is that some (not all, by a long shot) metal bands are actually very religious.  For example: As I Lay Dying are all professed Christians.  As are Demon Hunter, Stryper, Underoath, HB, War of Ages, and others.  I'm not saying we should all agree with them (I'm not a huge fan of As I lay Dying myself, even though I am Christian), but we can certainly admire their tenacity in a predominately "devilish" genre. 

Anyhow, I have "A Light in a Darkened World" By Killswitch Engage playing now.  I swear I have more music than this. The random feature bites me in the butt when I go to post.  lol.

Name one thing that is right with them.  Keep in mind I have first hand experience, not some college roommate selling pot and wearing dreads...actual forced to live with the stinking cockroaches on a commune as a kid.  

I welcome any positive points regarding hippies.

Politics? Hippies and politics? Since when do hippies vote? Complaining with their hands out for money and services they did not earn from a government they despise...this does not constitute any political view point...it just makes them locusts, eating everything and giving back nothing.

Last time I checked there was no hippie party...that would mean at least one of them would have a job...and man that would just harsh their day.

The music, all four clips were good indeed.  As I said I like metal, I just prefer to understand a bit of what they are saying lol.

The first video is the best by far, the third one is good also.  The first...the editing is spot on...the pics in synch with the music, very nice...great imagery. The music is a perfect match for the voice, well oiled machine.

If they were screamers before and have evolved into this as in the first vid then they get my salute and I would choose them for my next poke' ball!

Good call TJ those were much better for my palette   Grin

I didn't say anything was right with them, I just don't find anything inherently wrong with them either. lol. There aren't too many of them around anymore, but I would like to see a hippy party, if just for the comedy of watching them fail.

And I knew you would like those songs!

Phil (All That Remains) has actually been singing since the second album. He did it sparingly, using it only to evoke certain emotions that he couldn't show with the harsh vocals. Then in the third album he did it a whole lot more, while at the same time showing some amazing growth with his harsh vocals as well. That's what I love about him, he kept evolving through each album. In the debut album, his harsh vocals just didn't have much power behind them, but in the second album, he was able to nail a lot of the higher-pitched screams as well as perfect his growls as well, while still keeping that unique mid-range screaming voice there.

It's rather unfortunate because all of the songs TJ listed were ATR's attempt at being more radio friendly. All of the songs were a gradual decline through three albums, starting off okay, but getting worse and worse. Heck, Phil auto-tunes his voice now. They sacrificed their beloved technical prowess and intelligent lyrics that thousands of metal fans cherished for a more listener friendly and dumbed down radio rock sound. It's still ATR, but it's also not an evolution of the band, it's a major step down. I still continue to support them though since they were one of the first bands that got me into metal all those years ago and also because I hope that one day they will go and start dominating the metal scene again.

Though I will also admit that I do enjoy those songs, despite their flaws. When you take all of the ugliness away and let them stand on their own, they aren't too bad, but still not the best either.

These are just rantings from a loyal fan that's been with the band for several years now. Please don't get offended by it.
