Chuck87
Dimebag33

Total votes: 120


The original post

Posted by Demonmayonnaise on 05.10.2008 at 17:31
In the Dave vs Chuck thread, Marcel stated that he thinks that dead guitarists always win, because they are dead. Afterwards he mentioned something about Dimebag being idolized at death, just like Chuck. So I got the idea to put these two dead guys face to face, and see which one all of you think is better. Im not gonna vote just yet, gonna give both a good listen to before I decide.

how about every death metal band to ever exist

What I was asking for were concrete examples. I myself discovered some Death influences in Obscurd a few days ago. But saying "how about every death metal band..." is groundless.

thats like saying how sabbath influenced every metal band is groundless


did they?

without sabbath there is no metal.

theres just... blues and hard rock


so what's your point about Death? Without Death there is no Death Metal? Some older dudes would say that there were others band besides Death who started the genre together with them. But let me remind you that the initial question at issue was about [u]new[/i] death metal bands who were influenced by Chuck.

yea, um, i've already made my point about death. they may not have started death metal, but they were likely the biggest (and most influential) early dm band

One could argue that the most influential early dm band was not Death but Possessed (which influenced Death). But then again, everybody had their influences.

example... gosh... this is a stupid argument... if Shadows Fall say that Peace Sells was a very influential album for them, then I know they were influenced or if I hear a similar riff or structure, then I can make some conclusions...

Chuch since Death was a great band. Pantera is overrated and although Dimebag knew what he was doing, I never really liked the music he created.

Well, it really all comes down to what type of music you prefer. Thrash Metal fans will most likley choose Dimebag, and Death Metal fans will most likely choose Chuck. Being a Death fan I obviously went with Chuck.

I think you can't compare them, because they just played too different styles. And both were an influence for a generation of following bands.
I love both of them.

Exactly how I feel. Chuck was an especially good guitarist in Symbolic and The Sound of Perseverance. They are probably equal on the scale of skill, but for me, Death's guitar riffs are more enjoyable. Dimebag I never liked.

I feel just the same guys... I can't get into pantera at all...
But first time I heard Death, I LOVED IT especially in their Technical Death Moments


Bless The Sound of Perseverance

and yeah Chuck was better than Dimebag on a fucking guitar.. thats 4 sure

I think it is very hard to compare these two great musicians, but also a very interesting comparison. Dimebag was a great writer of riffs, and solos and in all a very very good guitarist. While I believe Pantera were rather overrated, they were still good and Dimebag was not at all overrated.
Chuck was another guitarist and whilest amongst metal circle he is almost worship by some as an almost godly figure (lame), he certainly deserved the attention he was incredible technically sound, great riffs, solos and an awesome song writer as well.

A very tough comparison, my vote goes to Chuck is the basis of personal preferance, i don't really think either one is better than the other or if they are its imposible to tell for me.
But would it have been awesome to see these two play in the same band, that would have been something special.

Both in the same band ? lol nice never thought of that
it would be some sick mixed up music thats 4 sure
even though I prefer Chuck, Dimebag was still a great guitarist
I think the idea was funny to see those 2 in the same band lol wicked thing I say.

Dimebag became terribly overrated after his death. I prefer Chuck, although both are to some degree.

I see why you would put two dead guitarist but seriously, how the fuck do you compare Chuck to Dave Mustaine? Chuck created death metal and Dave is just trying to be Metallica. Chuck is number one all the way. SCREAM BLOODY GOORRRREEEEEEEE!!!!

Because Churck was a great drummer

Also, I can't believe that this is even a question... Chuck muthafucking Schuldiner, father of death metal and creator of some of the best damn riffs known to man, verus Douchebag Darrel(sorry, I've had that joke built up for years...), the father of nu metal? They're both fine guitarists and all, with D-bag having one of my all time favorite solo's, the Cemetary Gates solo, but there's really no contest... Just listen to The Sound of Perseverance.
