    Just got the latest Baroness album a few weeks ago, not bad at all.

    Just saw Testament a few weeks ago in Milwaukee. Killer show, played a great mix of new and old stuff. All the guys were in great form and was impressed with their live show.

    Awesome DIS name, Amon Amarth rules!!!

    Yeah the new Baroness is pretty solid...

    I saw that tour as well Overkill were so awesome and Testament killed it as always. I was also impressed by Flotsam and Jetsam.

    I'm so pumped for Maryland Deathfest XI in May \m/

    Not so much a metalhead, but I couldn't find a punk thread and I figure punk is pretty "undisney" in general so I decided to post here. I listen to is all depending on my mood, sometimes pop punk like The Wonderyears, sometimes hardcore like Minor Threat or Flag, sometimes ska... it usually used to be ska like Reel Big Fish, Less than Jake or my favorite band Streetlight Manifesto. Basically I listen to anything fast.
    I was a "metalhead" and am kinda sad to admit I was a maggot in high school, but I still like bands like God Forbid who are pretty awesome, I do listen to metal, but the fans are SCARY sometimes... lol. Anyway, glad to see not all Disney fans are into just pop cause my friend who likes Disney(but it a girl) was SO INTO Camp Rock and shes like... "you like disney... you have to like this" and I was like "this is horrible" so yeah, don't like that stuff.
    One last thing before I post this long post... I do find it interesting that because I'm a Disney fan people expect me to like certain music... It makes some sense, but I don't get it.

    I love me some Minor Threat! I like a lot of punk in general, but Minor Threat is probably my fav punk band.

    Minor Threat are awesome!! I never got into ska although I used to enjoy Mephiskapheles but haven't listened to them since the 90's....I enjoy other Punk too like Eddie and the Louvers, Darkbuster, The Briggs, Born to Lose, The Generators and Whiskey Rebels to name a few

    What's scary about Metal fans??? I've been listening to Metal since 1988 when older kids in the neighborhood gave me some Metal tapes for my 8th birthday and have never found Metal fans to be scary. :)

    Disney and Metal definitely go together unless of course you are Exodus, for some reason they are banned from playing on Disney property :confused3

    I find the current generation of metal fans to be scary as well. I've been in my share of notable pits, Slayer, Deicide and Cannibal Corpse come to mind as particularly rough ones, but I wouldn't touch a pit today. Granted, I'm a little older now and wouldn't do it anyway, but I think teenage me would think twice about it as well. We used to have fun and bang each other up a little bit, but it seems like the goal today is to do actual damage to each other, and that... is kind of scary. Wall of death anyone? Nothankyou.

    All I know is I went to the first Rockstar Mayhem Fest when I was probably about 14, this giant dude just ran into the pit and started punching people in the face and I was like "that's not cool" and I got out quickly. I think the main issue are the metalcore kids... I went to a pop ska show once, Suburban Legends if anyone knows them... they play at Disneyland all the time. Anyway I LOVE THEM... semi guilty pleasure, but one of my favorite bands. Anyway they were in a showcase for California local OC bands at... I think Chain Reaction and they had a fun skank circle going on... and this kid wearing an Asking Alexandria shirt came in and just started owning people... you never fight in a skank pit, unheard of. There are a lot more of these people at metal shows because my generation has turned metal into "bro metal" and stuff like that. Also Slipknot fans are scary. I mean at least at a punk show some damage get's done, but part of punk is unity... that kind of stuff, but I feel like bro "metalheads" are just drunk teens who want to fight. I mean, there are some people like that in punk which i why even though I love Minor Threat I tend to avoid straightedge shows... I drink on occasion and do... a few other things, but nothing too hardcore and I like pushing people around, I don't want to get punched in the face, EVER. But yay... cool to see more punks that like Disney... and cool metalheads are awesome, most of my friends are thrashheads... I'm just the odd person who likes ska and punk in my group of friends.

    That's because Wall of Death isn't Metal nor is the Mayhem Rockstar Festival so you have a mixture of fans that don't know how to handle themselves in the Pit.....But you nailed it the Metalcore, Crabcore, Deathcore, Post Hardcore aka the tight jeans flat brim hat wearing hipsters are the problem....They don't know how to respect others...

    I'm going to the Maryland Deathfest in May which is 4 straight days of Metal and I won't think twice about being in that Pit because not 1 single person will purposely get hurt and if anyone throws punches it will quickly be policed by everyone else, if someone falls they will be picked up and dusted off, the way it should be...There won't be a single wall of death....

    I'm more into the Progressive Metal/Rock bands---Rush, Dream Theater, Queensryche, Trivium, Opeth, Coheed and Cambria, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, and older stuff of Saga, Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.

    Very happy that today, 4/18/13, Rush is being inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Long overdue. If you haven't listened to their latest, Clockwork Angels, then I suggest you get it. Amazing that these guys can still bring it.

    It's about damn time for Rush!!! Maybe Dream Theater will get there eventually, but that's probably unlikely. Dream Theater is my all time favorite band. I can't wait for the new blu-ray to come out next month!!

    Finally got to watch Rush's Hall of Fame induction on youtube. I thought Grohl's speech was great ... spoken like a true fan. I just couldn't figure out if Alex was giving the finger to the Hall of Fame thing ... or just being quirky Alex?

    Rush has always been one of my alltime faves. Although I celebrate thier entire catalog (Office Space ref), my favorite run is Caress of Steel through the 1st 1/2 of Moving Pictures ... Camera Eye, Witch Hunt, and Vital Signs would have been better off on Signals as far as I'm concerned.

    My tastes are always bouncing around from metal and prog and anything eclectic. Recently I've been immersed more in prog with the recent Steve Wilson, Spock's Beard, and Amplifier releases. All are very solid works. I've started getting back into Diablo Swing Orchesta again though, which is starting to steer me back to a metal mindset ...

    I haven't had the chance to watch the induction ceremony yet...again just glad Rush is finally getting the recognition they deserve.

    I love Diablo Swing Orchestra and Avant-garde Metal in general...since you like them you should check out the bands Unexpect , Transcending Bizarre? and RAM-ZET.

    Not a bad Rush set but like you said too much new music

    Woah! Wait...What? Are they playing together???? If so is the stage big enough for the egos of Bruce and Dave? :lmao:

    Best vacation to Orlando I ever had was a Disney/universal split trip where I saw Between the buried and me & dream theater. Subbing.

    Awesome!! I love Dream Theater live....

    The only shows I've seen at House of Blues DTD were way back in 1999 when I participated in the Disney College Program.

    - Meshuggah, Sick of it All and Slayer
    - Sepultura
    - Slash's Snakepit

    Been a metalhead for a good majority of my life. My favorite band has to be Slipknot. I have seen them live and met them twice! The last show i attended was Lamb of God with In Flames opening. I have been to many many shows and this was one of the best i have ever been to! I'm seeing KoRn (Head is back in the band) for the second time this Wednesday. Have you seen the line up for Mayhem Fest this year? Bodom, Amon Amarth, Machine Head, Bohemoth and many other kickass bands. Toss in Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch for the mainstage and you have the greatest damn thing EVER! Throw in the meet and greets and i can die happy!

    When it comes to Disney, its a part of me. My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1991 thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation. Been back 3 more times (1995, 2000 and 2004). I miss it quite a bit haha. My favorite Disney movie is The Lion King. I am not into the whole Princess or Cars stuff at all. anyway if anyone wishes to talk to me i have Skype. its MaggotStitch.

    I'm going to Mayhem Fest this year mainly for Behemoth and Amon Amarth. It'll be fun seeing machine Head again live for the first time in a LONG time. I saw them close to a dozen times back int he 90's, the problem I have with that band is that they haven't been the same since Logan Mader left. Children of Bodom are always great live, another band I've seen close to 10 times live but not since 2006.
