The Blackening or whatever actually has some pretty good parts. A radio station I was working at had a promo copy of that and I took it home to see if my hate was justified.
Unfortunately, the "pretty good parts" are overshadowed by everything else. All the "let freedom ring with a shotgun blast" shit.
I don't think anyone who knows their shit would outright deny he can do some cool shit on guitar, he was a legit thrash dude before he sort of decided to do something more commercial. Forbidden and Vio-lence and all that stuff.
Honestly though, it seems like he just looked at Max Cavaleras transition from "fucking thrash legend" to "baggy pants and skate shoes nu metal" and was like, "I should do that, only more annoying".
I can't hear that dudes vocals without hearing an even worse version of the style MC started transitioning to on Roots (Chaos A.D. for that matter, though Roots is more apparent).
