A thread for (light-hearted) neurotic bullshit related to metal.

So...

-It drives me insane when bands list their website links (mostly talking about social media sites) in their release liner notes. Why? Not really sure. Seems tacky I guess. The record will presumably last forever, but your shitty MySpace account closed 6 months after your 7" came out.
Oddly enough I don't really have any complaints about a label having their website's URL on the back.

-band photos by old chainlink fences, railroad tracks, etc. This is a no-go unless you're a construction worker, or have a top hat and are tying a woman to the tracks.

limitations to 488 and such, especially by bands who merely "flirt" with the ideology; try to intentionally fly under the radar, seem ambiguous
like it's not a big deal, it just makes the band and everything look very juvenile
some kind of high school caliber national socialism cock tease
no one's winning a racial holy war by purportedly destroying 12 cds

why I care? no fucking clue

Bands and labels who release pro-made CD-Rs in quantities that make it clear they might as well have just done real CDs. As a collector who still buys CDs as his primary archival copy of albums worth archiving, I want to buy something that will hold up. I don't trust CD-Rs - I've had too many of them stop working, and they're easier to damage and harder to repair than real CDs. So if you're making 500+ copies of something, just do it right.

This was especially irksome when Morbid Saint released that long-awaited set of all their material, and it was a CD-R set (and an expensive one to boot). If a label had handled it, it probably would have been a nicer set, on real CDs, and cost less to buyers. I don't begrudge at all if the band put more money in their pockets, but it was at the cost of making something people would be happy to have on their shelves. Personally I would have gladly paid the same or more for a nicer set in a chipboard box or something.

Lyrics about what Black Metal is, and how true the band is. An example is Sargeist's "Anti-Human Black Metal Wrath"

We - the sons of ruin and terror
Rape your souls with Black Metal wrath
You - the worms of humanity
Thou shalt suffer the Black Metal wrath

You try to fucking humanize
This true satanic movement
But you are wrong
It can never be human

Anti-human, anti-life
Cut your flesh and worship Satan
True unholy metal KULT
Dedicated to worship and war

You make it a trend a game
Try to play the supreme's role
You will never have the same
Understanding and hate we have

When will you fucking get it
It's not "music" but propaganda
Of anti-human, anti-life message
And values to destroy human life

"Improvised hateful list of posers"
Fuck you all!

You only feed the business
Commercialism and humanity
Kill yourselves before you can
End your miserable humanity

Intro's.

Sometimes it works (Emperor, In The Nightside Eclipse) but mostly I skip it.

I don't mind Intros/Outros, but I hate when that's what they are called. At least be a little creative and name it something.

Intros are fine as long as they are either
a) short, or
b) on their own track, so if it's dumb it's easy to skip.

On an LP, however...

Terrible label descriptions of their roster, usually on a sticker of a CD: Rising from THE DEPTHS OF THE UNDERGROUND this unique Belgian four piece BREAKS ALL RULES while simultaneously REINVENTING THE GENRE of SUICIDAL DEATH/DOOM with BLACKENED CRUST influences. FOR FANS OF: CARCASS, FRANK ZAPPA, WAGNER, ABBA, MERZBOW, BLACK TUSK, WU-TANG CLAN, TANGERINE DREAM AND MORRISEY!!!!!

Rolling Eyes

Fade-outs kinda bother me. It just seems like a lazy way to end a song. It's especially annoying when someone is doing a solo during the fade-out. It's like, hey, I wanted to hear that!

God I love solos during a fade out.

What annoys me is getting packages with all kinds of flyers and shit. Sometimes it's cool, but most of the time it's like Mitch Hedberg said: "Here, you throw this away."
