    It's easy to forget what a sick guitarist Robb Flynn is



    Shit's ridiculous, tons of attitude and flavour, totally nailed it.

    He's marketed himself so much as a "personality" these days, and that coupled with the fact that he rarely plays a ton of lead in MH, his playing rarely gets highlighted. He's always been the more solid guitarist out of whatever duo are in MH at the time though, and I just think it's easy to forget that.

    Once again, fuck this guy.

    I believe I remember him saying, years ago, that "the 5150 was great until that faggot Eddie Van Halen started fucking around with it".

    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).

    In the related vids. Not surprisingly, Satchel is note-for-note, even the bends and vibrato

    er, rather its just easy to forget about Rob Flynn now?

    And yeah, total armpit-ass sounding tone. Wish he hadn't. Can file in same category as Zakk Wylde's obnoxious tone. Also, what's up with that Skolnik rap tribute to EVH? Yeesh...

    Skolnick desperately needs Testament or the AST to be able to tour, because he's quite clearly going crazy in quarantine.
    C'mon son.
