    Coincidentally, Machine Head are another really good metal band if you are that way inclined. "Intense" is the way i describe them.

      Metallica and Slayer aren't really the same genre to me, guess they were a bit more similar earlier. I think if you ask people into metal what the best album is the average person won't have heard of the band they suggest let alone the album, maybe due to the huge subgenre diversity and lack of popular appeal, only old legends are known. Metallica and Slayer have cracking albums though. I remember my home pc hitting 10000 hours of Slayer as a kid.

      My first album ever was Sepultura, awesome.

        For sure, i'd class them into different genres too. Metallica, almost hard rock in a way. Slayer certainly thrash metal. That's a very simplistic way of looking of it of course but there is no doubt that Metallica have slipped away from "pure" thrash over the years.

        Yeah, the common response from friends when metal comes up is the old "don't they eat heads off bats" thing, Amazing on so many fronts.

          Master of Puppets IMO the best rounded metal album for me although I know it's probably cliched at this stage. If i was controversially minded i'd actually put "...And Justice for All" very close to it.

          Would be interested in seeing the musically inquisitive folk on here giving the aforementioned a bash, if they already have not. May think its tosh but i honestly think it belies it's genre.
          Vulgar display of power, powerslave and master of puppets for me. All nostalgia picks tho.

          metal is a weird genre for me, I dont think I have owned a proper metal album written in the last 15 years which is debatable since it was system of the down.

              It was raw and real unlike most of the 80s synth shit . Did ya hang around for the whole vid . Its gets better . Nirvana owe these guys a lot imo.

              If they had better vocals a lot of people would have been appeased but nawww I could listen to them for a nice raod trip , I never got buy in on my road trips though lol.

                Ah not debatable at all, SOAD another great band. Released a couple new songs recently for the first time in a long time actually. Dunno what happened them really, some band members don't get along i think. 2 albums in 6 months and nothing for about 15 years if i remember correctly!

                      Honestly it won't. Stop listening to your own voice. Just listen. And listen again. You'll hear the difference.Take a moment and listen.

                        Always class. Lombardo remains the greatest drummers of all time basically. Yes Hanneman is dead but Kerry King is the other greatness, inc. Beastie Boy solos. Fuck yeah....

                        I saw Slayer first in 1988 in the Ulster Hall in Belfast (with Nuclear Assault) when the kids were taking over the establishment.

                          I think metal is great as a nostalgia pick generally - everybody has their fav, and that's fine. 30+ years since you like a particular record and your opinion is still valid I think.

                            I'm finding this season is far better than than the last. Perhaps an episode ahead of the Fagan one.

                            In fairness I've only seen one scene but it was Olivia Coleman being absolutely amazing as usual opposite Gillian Anderson doing a sketch show bit.

                            It's so jarring when actors forget they are actors and decide to drop their art in favour of doing impressions. It was fucking woeful!

                                      Speaking of metal, thought this music vid from gojira was a cracker recently.

                                              Even if it wasn't so crap it would be impossible not to get tired of rugby union. It's just constant. It is though, it's crap.

                                                It’s a physical battle of a sport and if you don’t enjoy that then it’s dull and no amount of running rugby can cover that up. Taking away the crowd takes away some of the intensity of it too. For me Soccer, football, basketball, hurling are skills sports first and physical battles very much secondary and tbh it doesn’t do it for me nearly as much. But it’s a matter of taste.

                                                A few Irish players realising how much more they have to improve today. Painful but necessary part of their progression I guess. Ronan Kelleher, JGP, Byrne, Porter, the midfield is dull....

                                                  Ireland can't keep running into that white wall and expecting a different outcome.

                                                      I dunno I just felt watching the same five games every spring was tedious enough without some bright spark apparently deciding it would be a great buzz to have them in November as well.

                                                      It'd be like if the Premier League was on twice a year except it was just Liverpool Man City and four shit teams

                                                            We've got no running threat from 9 or 10. And two bulldozers in midfield.

                                                              Need to reconsider that tactic against the big strong teams.

                                                                        Imagine playing a team and having 1/4 of the opposition tackles but completely dominated. England get the ball wide and kick to the space so fast on each counter. Very impressive defence and line speed.

                                                                              Byrne had zero telling impact on the game today unfortunately. Against that linespeed taking that extra step back is a recipe for disaster. He's a smart player, I wonder why he wasn't trying anything a little more subtle with the gaps behind the line.

                                                                              Burns did it, fair play and it came off too. But I think we need to put the ball into no-man's land a lot more, and earlier vs England and quick-line-speed defences more often. Only way to slow that down is to make them second guess.

                                                                              Comment

                                                                                I was in Croke park the day Johnny Sexton came on to replace Contemponi and just took the ball and his body language screamed we’re going to do it my way now. And he had that famous pop at ROG. You just can’t imagine Ross Byrne ever doing that.

                                                                                We need a Carbery miracle or 1 or 2 from Harry Byrne, Billy Burns or Frawley to step up.

                                                                                In terms of backrow I think Rhys Ruddock and a fit Dan Leavy would have made a big difference today. I wasn’t convinced about the POM selection even though he was decent in the first half and did offer an important bit of leadership support for James Ryan (who played very well).

                                                                                Im not nearly as despondent as I was in March leaving Twickenham. We need a new loose head, time for a few hookers to step up, Ryan Baird to get a shot and to back youth in the backrow. 9/10 is an issue but we have decent centres to come back and new young talent in the back three which is exciting.

                                                                                I don’t think Ireland win the 6Ns in 2021 but you can see some green shoots...in a way if feels like some proper world cup planning if I’m honest. I’d love to hear how Lloyd sees it.

                                                                                                            The clumsiness thing is very weird.

                                                                                                            I have really good spacial awareness in most situations but at home, particularly in the kitchen, I'm a clumsy fuck. I can't empty a dishwasher without clanging a knife off the floor.

                                                                                                            Last weekend our soft closing toilet lid stopped working, as in t stopped closing softly. I noticed this after banging it shut.

                                                                                                            I banged it shut another five times.


                                                                                                            ​After the third time my wife laughed at me for being an idiot. She then spent an hour and a half upstairs getting the baby to sleep.
                                                                                                            She crept down the stairs afterwards, all quiet and we set Netflix up for The Queen's Gambit. 'I'm just goin to the jacks' I said.

                                                                                                            BOOOOM

                                                                                                            Felt like a fucking idiot.

                                                                                                            Then did it again.

                                                                                                                        I feel there must be a story here but not sure what it is.

                                                                                                                          You can still bet on the outcome in Georgia (where the results have been audited and certified). You can also bet on the results in Pennsylvania and Michigan, where Biden has commanding leads and both of which certify their results tomorrow.

                                                                                                                          Just bizarre really. I don't think it reflects well on PP/Betfair/whatever.
