It seems like the rest of the world is having a drought for music.

What are you talking about?

All they have to show for is Led Zeppelin and the Beatles, and they suck.

Excuse me? First of all, your taste in music is a matter of opinion. Secondly, by estimation does Zeppelin and the Beatles suck? Both of those bands were incredibly original for they day, so much so, that most progressive acts would not have existed without them. I'm not a huge Zeppelin or Beatles fan either, but they certainly don't suck. The Rolling Stones suck, IMO, particularly Charlie Watts who can't play anything other than a 4-4 beat. But nonetheless, even they were original for their time.

Everyone knows the beach boys were better than the beatles anyway

I'm gonna have to seriously disagree. The Beach Boys didn't even write their own music, and what was written wasn't very good, IMO.

Where are non american good modern bands and music?

Name me some genres and I'll name me you a plethora of great non-American music.

This was what I could come up with off of the top of my head, some underground, some mainstream. There are gobs more to completely unsubstantiate Prophex's claims. I think he is just holed up in his uncultured, small town and doesn't get out much.

Cool band!

What's a nice christian like you doing listening to music like this?

Heh... I'm not a huge fan, but I enjoy this genre. I've been following the drummer, Gene "the machine" Hoglan since he was in Death. I kind of wish he stayed with them, but oh well.

Before I was a Christian I listened to this music, and then some, and still do to some degree based on the content. My old band used to play shows all throughout Florida in the metal/hardcore circuit until it dissolved in '99.

But since my conversion, I've filtered a lot of that music and phased it out of my life. For instance, I grew up on Slayer. And though I still like most of their music (albeit the newest album was a complete disappointment), its so anti-christ that I just can't stomach it. Its not even that I feel some sort of duty to not listen to it, some it just sickens me to the core.

But I still listen to metal and hardcore.

Ever listened to Meshuggah? Incredibly talented band - very heavy with superb drumming.

Yes, I have listened to them. They are , technical, original and I think they're very talented, but for some reason I can't really get into it that much.
