    Oysterman, is your Icon Gorden Freeman?
     
  6. I'm not much of a metal man, in the "stereotypical-Metallica-Judas Priest" sense, though I'll take a stab

    Iron Maiden
    Bad Brains (of course)
    Avenged Sevenfold
    Dillinger Escape Plan
    Strung Out
    88 Fingers Louie
    Knowledge

    The last three can be arguable, but I'd rather not start a "genre-fight" (which are infamous in the punk band threads)

    P.S. I thought Oysterman's avatar was the guy from the Half-Life box cover.

    Hey, Endo isn't that bad...and Nothingface's Violence is an excellent album. The (title) track "I Can't Wait For Violence" is a spectacular song, IMHO. The bridge (where he sings the "I...can't wait...for violence") gives me chills.

    All my faves have been listed.

    For example stuff like Rage, tool, and a bit of korn. I like their older and middle-old stuff. Newer cds are not doing it for me.
