King_Nuthin;2116715 said:I don't know why but I had a really hard time taking them seriously and I think it had to do with the packaging of their albums and the "Featuring 263 ear splitting riffs" yadda yadda. There were some songs I really liked but sometimes I got the impression they were cramming riffs into songs just for the sake of cramming riffs into songs and getting a higher total on the sticker of the next album.
Ultimatum;2116742 said:They really don't though. I can't really think of a song that doesn't have a definitive structure and has riffing for the sake of riffing.

Ultimatum;2116824 said:Unearth and The Haunted are not Thrash at all.
Onslaught_fei;2116792 said:What is exactly is overrated with Megadeth? Who else is putting 5 guitar solos on a single track. They have some of the most creative and melodic riffs in thrash, and easily the most technical compared to the big 4.
tridentgum0;2120966 said:Maybe not The Haunted, but Unearth? They are commonly referred to as metalcore, no way are they metalcore. Metalcore consists of about half clean vocals, Unearth was about 10-20% clean. Thrash, i don't see them as anything else. Especially on The March.
tridentgum0;2120977 said:The vocals and drumwork. Mustaine should stick to guitar, the drumwork to me all has the same rythym (bass heavy, hi-hat, snare beats)
afterstasis;2120995 said:frequency of clean/harsh vocals has nothing to do with whether a band is metalcore or not.
