Watch Video Of The History of Metal In One Minute

After covering goth in one minute and even emo in one minute, Spinner's The DL has finally given metal the one-minute treatment (video also embedded below). Here's the intro to the video:

"All right, you little spawns of Satan, it's time to dust off that old Napalm Death T-shirt and sacrifice a small animal to the demon god of METAL! This ain't no indie, prog or alt-country bulls---. This is where the rubber meets the road ... or where the flesh meets the gnashing teeth of an eternal life of hellfire doom raining over the bloodied bodies of those who rocked before you! Or something like that. Throw some goat, you Anton LaVey wannabes -- it's Metal in One Minute. Bruuuuuuuutal!!!!!"

Viking Metal is an umbrella sub genre to cover bands that have lyrics about vikings and/or norse mythology. It started when Bathory started adding Viking themes to their lyrics and image and than Enslaved being the first true viking metal band, playing black metal music and than a bunch of black viking bands began to show up. The term Viking Metal only covers the lyrics so a viking band can play any kind of music. So basically you can have bands that play Viking Doom Metal, Viking Metalcore, or Viking Nu Metal.

Nope, NDs first album Scum actually has 2 singers, vocalist/ bassist Nic Bullen sang the first 12 songs or so and the second half's vocal duties were handled by Lee Dorrian (now in Cathedral). Then they did "From Enslavement To Obliteration" with Dorrian. I believe everything after that features Barney Greenway on vocals. I'm not sure why "Inside The Torn Apart" and "Enemy Of The Music Business" sound so different to you since they were only recorded three years apart with the same lineup.

I wouldn't know Broken Face I don't have either of them lol. I have "Scum", "Leaders Not Followers", "The Code Is Red... Long Live The Code" and "Smear Campaign". All of which are well worth picking up. I had to warm up to "Smear Campaign" though. Wasn't too sure what to make of it when it came out initially but it's one of my favourites now. Do yourself a favour though and pick up "Scum". That's a true classic.

I disagree, as awesome as Amon Amarth are, the viking era Bathory and the first 3 albums by Enslaved slaughters about 60% of the stuff Amon Amarth has done.

Straight edge GOD, is someone in the alternative community who lives by the creed "no drugs, safe sex, rock and roll" they basicaly want to listen to the music and such, but dont do any drugs or drink, and they use condoms if they have sex. Some straight edgers take it too far and have hurt anyone that uses drugs and or had unprotected sex. Some do the straight edge thing and just leave people be. In my opinion they have a dull life, but whatever floats their boat man!

Well, I am straight edge I guess according to Kalis. And in response to it being dull it's all in how you look at it. I don't see why I need a foreign substance to feel good or have fun. But with that said, I don't care what others do in private, but when it (smoking mostly) can possibly affect me in a negative way I begin to get irritated because that's just inconsiderate. I already have a shortened lifespan due to my genetic disease, I don't need it cut down anymore.

I can't remeber what band it was (were not edge, but hardcore punk still) but becasue all the members were under 21 (legal age in Amercia yes?) the club owners were not going to let them play. So they compromised and put X's on theri hands so the bartenders wouldn't serve them. But Minor Threat adobted this for the edge scene.

Ok just because someone doesn't drink, do drugs, or have unprotected sex doesn't make you edge. What seperates the edge people and the people who just don't do these things is that straight edge (just like skinhead) is a lifestyle. The straight edge people make not doing drugs, alcohol, or unprotected sex their lifestyle.

I was going to ask you the same Godlike, because of your midwest comment because I'm in Iowa and we seem to love drugs. Granted it's mostly thugs though. Not the farmers. Lol We like the Meth the most. And speaking of chewing...That's a HUGE problem here because we keep banning smoking, so they all chew.

Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area...Yeah, well, to be fair, we have been cleaning up the meth labs pretty well I think. I think my aversion to drugs is basically I've seen them destroy people, quite literally. And as far as alcohol goes, surprisingly I've never really had it aroound me, haha. I think my specific disability played a role too. I was simply never offered anything.

Anyone who does not play sport and maybe as a black or grey shirt is emo and must be bashed apparently. But you learn to deal with it. These people are p***ies who never back themselves up without at least 10 mates. Even then they are no challenge, hit one of them and they all run away.

Well I know that a long time ago the Britsh (I believe) sent over their "undesireables" as a prision colony. I know that this has had sort of a cultural impact in present day as you are still labled as convict's. I know that your two national animals are the kwala and the kangaroo and your climte is very hot, and sometimes as I have been told by other friends from Australia that it makes it a bit hard to live, but you are a tough people and deal with it anyways. I also know that your wild life is very eclectic and are home to many alligators and corcidiles. I know that Sydney is your biggest city and has the famouse Opera house that to me looks like something that came from the sea. Maybe that was the intention? The brian is half working and I will probably remember more as the night goes on, but that's it in a nut shell really. I personally think that Aussies are great people who have over come alot of hurtels. I also hear that your special forces are extremely good and they help train our troops here in the U.S. Thank you guys!

The climate all really depends on where you live, I live in Victoria, which is right down south and it is only hot during summer, but when winter hits it gets pretty damn cold. The states to the north are pretty much hot and wet all year, very tropical.

So you learn something new everyday. This is something that I just got off of Animal planet's web site:

My name is Michael. I am 8 years old. What is the difference between crocodiles, alligators and crocodilians, beside where they live and the shape of their heads?
Thank you in advance for answering my question.


A: Michael, all species of crocodiles, alligators, caimans and gharials are known collectively as "crocodilians" (or more correctly "crocodylians") because they share many basic features. However, scientists have placed crocodiles and alligators in different families (crocodile in Crocodylidae, and alligators in Alligatoridae) based on key differences between all alligators and all crocodiles. Caimans incidentally are also a type of alligator, and gharials are in a family of their own called Gavialidae.
What are these key differences? They are mainly based around features of the skeleton and body, and you've already mentioned one of these — the difference in the shape of their heads. Alligators and caimans have broad U-shaped snouts, whereas crocodiles have narrower V-shaped snouts. There is some variation (for example Mugger crocodiles have a very broad snout like an alligator, and some subspecies of caimans have an almost V-shaped snout). Alligators are recognizable because the upper jaw overlaps the lower jaw, and hence all the teeth of the lower jaw are hidden from view and fit into depressions in the upper jaw. With crocodiles the teeth interlock more evenly, and those in both the upper and lower jaws are clearly visible when the mouth is shut. The large fourth upper tooth in particular is easy to spot in a crocodile, but not an alligator.

Did you know that crocodiles have salt glands on their tongue? They're actually modified salivary glands, and their purpose is to secrete excess salt from the crocodiles' bodies. Alligators and caimans have the basic structures in their tongues as well, but they are nonfunctional. This means crocodiles are — as a rule — more tolerant of saline water than alligators and caimans. At one extreme, saltwater crocodiles can spend many days or weeks in salt water if necessary. Alligators and caimans are almost totally restricted to fresh water. I don't recommend you get close enough to a crocodile's or alligator's tongue to find out whether it has salt glands!

Another difference lies on their scales. Both crocodiles and alligators have sensory organs called ISOs (integumentary sense organs) covering their head and particularly their jaws. Look carefully at them and you'll notice a myriad of black spots, almost as though they need a good shave. These are the ISOs. They enable the crocodile or alligator to orient the head toward pressure changes in the water (e.g. a water splash at the surface). Interestingly, crocodiles have similar organs covering their entire body (one on nearly every scale of the belly, the flanks, the legs and even the tail), whereas they are absent from the body scales in alligators and caimans. If you look at crocodile leather, you can clearly see a small dimple on every scale, but not on alligator leather.

There are many differences between crocodiles and alligators, but these are probably the most important ones that affect not only our ability to tell them apart, but also their ecology and behavior.
