I just think that dude you're having this "back and forth" with needs to get off his high horse... lol ...and I'm not trying to "suck up".
But seriously, I'm going give them a listen in the next few days. Starting with what you suggested.

Don't do it. They suck.
Hell, no one likes them and everyone that goes to see them walks out on them.
You want to hear a funny story. This is true, not sarcasm.
The first time I saw MRH was in 2002.
It was 5.0, 18 Visions, Lamb Of God, and MRH. After hours of listening to nothing but that "growl" MRH came on.
They started doing it too. I left after about 4 songs. I didn't see them again until 09' and they weren't anything like I thought they were.
I started getting and listening to their music and quickly realized they do so much more than just growl. I can't even label their musical
style because they go in so many directions. Now I love them and I'll be going to see them again Dec. 15th near Cleveland. Does this mean
anyone else will see the same in them. No! Am I trying to get you to like them? No! Do I care if you or anyone else starts to like them? No!
I'm just sharing a story on a social site. Is that normal? Not here!
And yes I know you are only on my side to piss with Guido.
If you do give them a listen start with Xlll or Savior Sorrow. I'm pretty sure you can download them. (LOL)
Ignore that dude man, he's just on some kind of self-righteous glory kick. lol
And i'm gonna give MRH a listen!
Have you ever downloaded anything?
Why the fuck did you turn me onto Demonoid if you're so against it.
You've pretty much stated what you're issue is with me.
I like MRH.
MRH gives me enjoyment through entertainment and something to talk about with all the stuff they have going on.
Priest does nothing for me right now and gives me nothing to discuss and you are a diehard and resent this.
You resent it so much in fact that you want to put MRH out of existence.
Then you try to belittle me by stating how they don't draw and people walk out on them.OK, now I'm hurt.
You don't realize that I don't care how anyone feels about them. I only care how I feel about them. When they
do go away I'll move on to someone else.
Well, first, I said that it takes an awful lot to get me actually "pissed." Typing on the internet isn't even in the running. As I spend my typical days at work on a mainframe dealing with REAL internet trolls, believe me, I have very thick skin. You, on the other hand, have always tended to take everything way too personally. The creation of this very thread is a good example. A bit of a persecution complex mixed with over-sensitivity if you ask me. Hell, you can talk about MRH 'till the cows come home. Do you think that Hellrider posting his dumbass "goatfucker" or cardboard YouTube messages is ever going to make people like the band or open their eyes that they should have "all, not a partial full-on in your face three axe attack" with JP's next album? Of course not.
I am actually referring to a larger problem in the other thread. That of illegal downloads and not paying for things you like. Why is MRH not as popular as they should be? Perhaps, just perhaps, could it be due to lack of exposure to their music worldwide? Lack of revenue that could have been used to market themselves? How many thousand times do you think that their entire discography has been downloaded? How many that liked what they heard actually paid for them?
To reference bands that used to be local from MY hometown, why are Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, and Bob Seger (who was SO local that he played a free concert on my HS front lawn before he hit it big) household names while MRH is not only local but had less than a "state-fair" gathering of people at an Ozzfest?! As I said, many who also walked out. Better bands? Bad crowds? Hey, how about no big marketing team behind them exposing possible fans to their music?! Different era and more cut-throat than ever in terms of competition. $ is down because of record sales and illegal downloads. THAT is a fact.
Nice grab on the t-shirt, btw. Again, could it possibly be that they can't raise prices because of lack of demand? At Priest, I bought a $40 and a $60 shirt, stage crew shirt plus tourbook. You don't even want to know how much else I got via private deals and eBay.
For all you Mushroomhead fans. Here: (nah, second thought edited by me...I am not so cruel as to post where you can download every single disc without any sort of membership) I recommend the discography. Know that it is illegal to download any of this but, if you do, I am sure that you will certainly be honest and support the band by paying so that they can continue their craft and, hopefully, be able to offer more concerts.

Dude, I love Judas Priest and if they were actually doing something worth mentioning I would post about them in a heart beat.
The only thing they have done since Rob's return is two albums and a couple of tours. Other than that it has been a continual blast of compilations,
best of's, and live cd's. No real work just a lot of bloodsucking.
I'm not trying to troll this site or get anyone to like them(MRH). What you don't get is that they are a local act for me and they play most of their shows in this region
of the U.S. That gives me multiple opportunities to see them and I try to use this as a social site and since they are giving me something to talk about I post.
I'm not trying to ram them down anyone's throat and they aren't that successful yet they keep giving for their fans. I respect them for that. I would rate Priest
a hundred times higher than MRH but they aren't doing anything for me now so I don't discuss them. If I'm coming off as a troll or if you think I'm trying to do
with them here what Brian does with Maiden you're incorrect. Believe it or not I still respect you and the help you've given me since I've been here but lately
you just post negatively about me and that results in some of my sarcasm. Peace! (whether you want it or not)
Oh' and their shirts aren't overpriced. I paid 40.00 bucks for a Priest shirt but only 25.00 for theirs.
Thank GOD you finally used a sentence without MRH in it!!
(Couldn't tell you when was the last time you actually used Priest)
Now then, instead of seeing Dio Disciples, I am going to be seeding every damn MRH album on all major trackers! Hope one or two people like their music and actually pay for it. That might make the band a buck or two or at least get them in the door to pay for an overpriced t-shirt. (Quoting Message by Budred from Saturday, November 17, 2012 11:45:02 AM)
I just found out that Dio Disciples are playing in McKees Rocks on Wednesday. That's less than an hour from home.
I know where I'll be that night. .....or maybe I'll buy the new Van Halen cd instead....nahhh, I'd rather see Dio Disciples.
