Onslaught_fei;2029822 said:Adema, Trapt, Sevendust, Taproot, Drowning Pool, Soil, Coal Chamber, Chimaira, etc...A band sounding the same as other artists is not a bad thing and I dont like it when its used against a band. I like me some Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, and Rhapsody for example and a lot of people say they sound way too similiar but then thats why they're in the same genre, now, isnt it? (And you can clearly pick out each band's unique traits if you want to get anal) Now Sully's voice is a bit more baritone than other numetal artists but people like me who come from a "played guitar for 8 years and then got into music" background listen to instrumentation as more than just background fodder.The largest problem with numetal is its airplay. People will say it sounds the same. You take a radio station and just play only 80's thrash or power metal or death metal, or what have you and you will get the exact same complaints.
TheCrimsonSaint;2029873 said:I wasn't trying to say that the instruments are just "background fodder" to me. Quite the contrary. Sully just adds that x-factor with his voice, taking what would be a run-of-the-mill nu-metal band and making it special. The best comparison I can think of would be Kamelot and Roy Khan. With him, they've got something special. Without him, not so much.

Rockbandfan23467;2030659 said:I was kind of on a Fez high when I said that.
TheCrimsonSaint;2029138 said:What is the general forum opinion of Godsmack?
Hungryfreak;2029779 said:Melvins weren't exactly grunge, though they weren't exactly anything. The closest you can get is doom metal with a lot of experimentation and branching out (they started as hardcore punk and have included many different styles into their playing). Nonetheless, they heavily influenced the entirety of grunge.

Ultimatum;2033042 said:I like their outlook on their music. After making a great album, they don't try to follow up with another a year later, instead, they wait until they can make one that they feel is as great as the last.
Ultimatum;2033161 said:That makes it so incredibly awesome.
