Chinese spambots. Jeckidy SMASH!

Just assuring everyone that there was a technical glitch that caused the pages to go blank. I'm going to test a new functionality within the next few days.
avatar
FUCK YOU STUPID DUTCH LAWMAKERS FOR (possibly?) KILLING EXHENTAI
avatar
Might have something to do with me blocking most Chinese spambots. My other forum was being overloaded with them.
avatar
The forum only operates on superior American time Wink
avatar
Again: same here. Whatever was bothering the forums has disappeared now.
avatar
Seems to be working now.
avatar
Same here, everything I click leads back to the homepage
avatar
Are the forums broken? I can't access any of the threads.
avatar
I'm part of the true metal crowd.
avatar
glad to say, my metal credentials long ago went poof, now i can enjoy Deviloof
avatar
Only listen to trve metal while beating down posers and then no one can question your metal credientials. Tongue
avatar
Ah, so it ends again in "proper" and "supposed to" area, then add unacceptable view of masculinity, and it is doomed. Kinda same pattern with other japanese stuff.
avatar
If you talk to the true metal crowd, none of those bands are metal. Wink My personal opinion is that if it's more metal than core then it counts. I haven't listened to any of them in enough detail to make that judgement though.
avatar
mabye tiny bit less of deathcore, depends on track
avatar
well jiluka is kinda same thing, nazare as well
avatar
Heh, deviloof is indeed deathcore/metacore/numetal depending on the song. Good call on not telling them about the looks. Laugh
avatar
lmao! dunno saw it somewhere. I would say it's mix deathcore/metalcore/numetal but i don't know. But my deathcore diehard maniac friends really like it, and deviloof as well. Lol i didn't tell them about looks.
avatar
No idea what "post-hardcore extreme metal" is supposed to be but that doesn't sound like a real genre. Tongue
avatar
ok but why are those post-hardcore extreme metal(or what genre is this) bands labeled as vk, and not metal? why are glam-girl powermetal groups called metal? i am new to vk, there are things i really love, but i still don't understand why the hell people care about looks in music
avatar
It's complicated, but VK a look and not a really sound. However there are certain sounds/styles that were popular with VK bands at certain times. To sum it up: it depends on the band. Versailles is 100% metal, but Malice MIzer is not despite both groups LARPing as French vampires.
avatar
it is put in VK box, and i still don't understand wtf is about VK different from metal (or rock in some cases)
avatar
i wonder, how are bands like Jiluka or Nazare different from j-metal? is it just those looks?

Hi Japanese metal people!

Whoa, Urquidy was ELITE out there. The rangers got nothing besides a random luck swing. Hopefully he's like this for the rest of the season.
avatar
Check out my metalcore band!
avatar
I love purging spammers, especially if they want to tell us about their amazing bands that will save metal once and for all! Hand
avatar
I posted a rare thread here. Hehe!
avatar
At least we split the series
avatar
Lost two in a row to the rangers Suicide
avatar
I should do a chronological relisten of them sometime soon
avatar
Speaking of Gargoyle, I haven't listened to their albums that chronologically a few years back, but they still grew on me a lot
avatar
Happy Birthday AMERICA
avatar
Also I think Gargoyle is way better than Volcano but don't let Masurao catch me saying that. Tongue
avatar
Gargoyle works best chronologically in my opinion so start with Misogi and work your way up. Also "Destroy" is amazing so you can't go wrong there.
avatar
Given how much I like Volcano, I figure I should like Gargoyle too. We'll see though.
avatar
I've tried on and off to get into Gargoyle for a few years now, and just can't. Not quite sure what it is.
avatar
Misogi is so far the best one I've heard. I always liked the artwork.
avatar
Which Gargoyle album would you recommend starting with?
