Where's all the jokey metal at?

Postby Ghost » Thu Jan 14, 2021 10:11 pm

I guess I'm not looking out for it but when I was growing up there were bands like S.O.D, M.O.D, Bomb Disneyland, Dr and the Crippens, Macabre, Electro Hippies and Lard. Can't think of any bands now other than Pirate metal which I don't like. Obviously Macabre are still going.
I see the bad moon arising.

Depends on your definition I suppose - like you say, there's pirate metal. I wouldn't normally lump power metal in with this although I'll make an exception for Gloryhammer even though I'd just describe them as 'shit'.

Based purely on having a bit of a daft gimmick, you've also got Evil Scarecrow, Nekrogoblikon, Okilly Dokilly, Austrian Death Machine (although not any more, obviously), Arnocorps, Tragedy, Lordi,

Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure there's plenty of others.

*EDIT* - And Lawnmower Deth & GWAR of course :lol:

Most of the newer power metal bands are at lest a bit jokey, or tongue in cheek silliness least.

Not so much metal but there are still plenty of 'jokey' death/goregrind bands out there that are decent musically but don't take themselves seriously and have some ridiculous themes, costumes etc.

Gutalax and Birdflesh spring to mind :lol:

The power metal stuff really grates on me these days, I've always loved power metal in general but Gloryhammer are now firmly as the top of my cannot fucking stand list!

The funniest 'thing' I've seen recently is John Gallagher of Dying Fetus wearing a T shirt - Mass Infection....

Intrigued as to why General Surgery would be considered jokey? To me they're just the same as all the Carcass-esque death/goregrind bands like Haemorrhage, Exhumed, Impaled etc. Nothing really jokey about them except the fact they wear fake blood and medical gear on stage?

Saw Gout a few times back in the day, class band!
