I bet if this didn't have the dudes name attached to it, y'all wouldn't be so harsh. From the little soundbite, it's sounds like some high energy thrash with decent composition to my ears (maybe I'm wrong?). Sure...it's not original, but what metal is? Even the best metal bands are derivative. I'm laughing at the sh1t.

What metal is original? Hmm, where should I start?! Cynic, Gorguts, Emperor, Nile etc - having derivative influences is a big difference from being a generic knock off. High energy thrash? Are you kidding, something like Violator is high energy thrash. I can't stand the name of thrash being abused.

Now Playing: The Lord Weird Slough Feg - "High Season II"

LOL. Funny article. But seriously, Arnold and Stalone were the last good pair of action heroes. Van Damme and Segal belonged in B-movies with Bruce Campbell, but martial arts don't do sh** to zombies. And Bruce Campbell would have blown their asses away anyway. It was all downhill from there.

Oh yeah - Arnold for President!

I agree, cept I quite like Van Damme - Universal Soldier, The Quest, Kickboxer etc. I loved. Oh and db, managed to watch Conan and holy hell, that is one massive bulk of a man haha. There should be more camel punching in movies.

Destroying venues live as a real band since 2001 (not some studio project with hired musicians) is the mighty ARNOCORPS who don't praise Arnold, but rather reclaim the sacred ancient action tales of Austria for the people. Tim's project rips most of their lyrical content.

cool band name...boring clip.

...and dammit it ISNT f***ING THRASH!!!!!! that term is becoming so misused i cant take it anymore....a once sacred and holy subgenre title has now become a blasphemous marketing adjective. metalcore is a dying trend and a sh**ty music form. it isnt respected for a reason, quit trying to mask you're weak attempts to sell-out metal by trying to "blend" into the purest form of metal subgenre there is...THRASH! you're only fooling yourselves and the retarded media guppies.

on a side note, i would still like to see a movie titled "last man standing" featuring steven segal vs chuck norris....it would end with the universe being destroyed by a 1-2 combo of a roundhouse kick and a karate chop. the movie would last 8 hours!

now playing TRUE THRASH: toxik - door to hell

Haha, thanks man - hey reading your post above we could be damn twins the way we think! Cept I've never been a Chuck Norris fan :P Back in the day a roundhouse kick from Chuck would've resulted in Arnie ripping said leg off and beating him to a pulp with it.

Now Playing: Ihsahn - "Emancipation" (on his myspace, cuz my record store sucks)

lol...hence why chuck norris would be fighting steven segal and not arnold!

and since we're discussing fighting movies, i would also like to see a mortal kombat movie given the justice it deserves.

Definately! It is a strange phenomenon that the less an action movies plot makes and or how stupid the movie is, the better the movie seems to be. Street Fighter with Jean-Claude Van Damme anyone? Though hands down the best and yet simultaneously the worst is First Blood and Predator.

Best and worst? I love both of those movies :-) I forgot to mention that I actually do like The Rock and Vin Diesel as today's action duo. But they both sold out to do the kiddie movies WAY too quick too.

They are fukkin' awesome live..but hey just my opinion. At least the name is cool....Austrian Death Machine..it immediately caught my interest. To the critics...I just don't understand how grindcore is that fascinating...just me, of course. Progressive grind-core??

You guys take this way to serious, its just for teh lulz ffs, I think this is f***ing hillarious, all though the songs are not original in any way Tim Lembesis never said it would be either, And you gotta admit, some bands that really trying to be good are way worse.
