Tired of metal

I've been tired of metal for a number of years. It started with Sabbath tapes bequeathed by my uncle when I was barely old enough to use the tape player. Then the whirlwind of Metallica, Slayer and Pantera as a pre-teen. Then death metal in highschool. Then more death metal. Then the Gothenburg sound exploded. Then back to death metal. I loved it all.

I haven't bought a new metal album in forever. I believe the last one I bought was Mastodon's "Remission" when it came out. As much as I loved Remission I didn't bother to listen to anything they put out after that despite the hype. I just stopped buying metal altogether.

Now it's official. Slayer has won a Grammy.

Bleh.

The singing/screaming combo, ultra slick production, chug chug riffs and predictable drumming have bored me to death since it started.

The ultra-spazzy, mathy metal has always bored me since it started.

I'm going to go listen to Seger on vinyl.

This sucks.

New Manowar April 3rd. It could be good. Probably not, but it could be.
