Oasis Stand Corrected In Gig Volume Debacle

A Canadian website has reported that Oasis have picked a fight with an unlikely foe - Manowar. Liam Gallagher was rabbiting on about how Oasis were the loudest band in the world onstage, when the interviewer interrupted to inform him that if he in fact checked the Guinness Book Of World Records he would see that it wasn't The Who, or even Motörhead, but NWOBHM band Manowar.

"But they're loud and shit though, aren't they? They're just shit," Gallagher said. "Who are they anyway?" Oasis bassist, Andy Bells chimed in, "Heavy metal?"

"Fuck Manowar," yelled Gallagher.

eesh Manowar.....

Oasis......f***ing drunk-ass louts....Think their so great because for about a year and a half they were the f***ing biggest thing ever....Hate to break it to Liam, but theres been about 100 bands that have been as famous or more famous since his little moment in the mid-nineties.

As far as being loud thats a laugh too....If anyone wants loud (not heavy, LOUD) go see Ministry or (it's too late now but) Janes Addiction. Jeezus...

Manowar's last album had one of the greatest opening numbers ever, followed by plenty of filler. Oasis are struggling too these days, and have yet to produce anything as good as their debut album. Oasis used to be my favourite band, but nowadays I'm sick of hearing them mouth off yet more ignorant trash. I would have no problem with that retard claiming Manowar to be sh**, if he actually knew who they were. He doesn't know very much about anything other than making ludivrous boasts to compensate for his musical insecurities though.

f***....this is outlandish....

These guys (Manowar) must have money to just throw around to make this much racket (129.5 decibels through 10 tons of amplifiers and speakers) thats not a far cry from commercial and military jet-engines, thats the sad thing. You --WILL-- lose some of your hearing leving one of Manowars shows, theres just no way around it.

Funny thing is, these guys embody that eighties anthemic fantasy based metal, very bleh IMHO....

Other than being able to generate earth shattering racket their drummer is so powerful he has to have a titanium or steel based kit, standard kits actually would collapse mid-show from his playing......

THAT is impressive.

HAHA! Give me a break, Liam. You're band is just a Beatles rip off. How can you compare that to Power Metal, volume-wise? What a moron.
