Ah... when I was about 17 I got Far Beyond Driven (on a copied cassette, it was a long time ago, no mp3s or CD burners then). I didn't like it. I thought it was too heavy.

Got Official Live Pantera 101 Proof for my birthday.

Too heavy? God what a pussy I was. They are great. :beer: Also... this is where Machine Head and Zakk Wylde got their riffs from. I knew that anyway but it's nice hearing it.

On the other hand, I also got a copy of Carcass's Descanting the Insalubrious at about the same time which was also too heavy.

This also still isn't too heavy, it is still shit however.

I do have to admit a sneaking fondness for Vulgar Display Of Power :nervous:

It's just so raw and bullshit free. Totally pretensiousless (if that's a word).

We're going to play fuckoff massive riffs as fast as we can, there's no musical point or emotional message. If you don't like it fuck off.

I appreciate that attitude.

They are the Venom of music.

pretensiousless, sadly isn't a word. I guess it would be "a lack of pretension" maybe?

unpretensious i think is what you are all scrabbling around for

yes i too bought far beyond driven back in the day and also found it a bit too heavy at the time. It's certainly overdue for a relisten.

I'd certainly give it a go.

Don't know about far beyond.... but Cowboys from Hell, has the most emotional metal ballad/epic, in the form of cemetery gates! What a tune!

Is that a cover of the classic Smiths song?

I have a hunch that it isn't.

I'm sure that was the reaction you were looking for.

Well, possibly not but it's an awesome riff.

lmfao - Never thought I'd see a "going back to your roots" thread - back in the day for me was around 13 - b/c that was when I started progressing from hair bands to real music and hard music.

I never found them too heavy, I found the always good.
Then again, I listened to things with an eclectic taste - everything fro Jacko and other pop to Metallica, older Queensr˙che (pre-Empire), Judas' Priest, Maiden, to the hair bands, like Crüe, Poison, Nitro, Fifth Angel, to the world of Industrial, such as Ministry, NIN, Bigod 20, Front 242, etc, which led me to techno and the heavier stuff in the 90s.

I rarely listen to pop anymore, as it is too mainstream for me, but I love the heavy stuff, and some of the mainstream alternative I like as well.

Just goes to show - as I have gotten older, my tastes have become even more variegated - but I like it loud, fast, and heavy all the same.
