This should be in Poetry.

I'll try and keep this brief:

Iron Maiden - Revelations
Nevermore - In Memory (this song practically gets me in tears, lyrically. Not very metal of me)
Nevermore - The Seven Tongues of God
Nevermore - Dreaming Neon Black (entire record)
Nevermore - Dead Heart in a Dead World
Nevermore - Noumenon
Pantera - War Nerve
Pantera - Suicide Note Pt. 1
Pantera - This Love
Pantera - Shedding Skin
Pantera - I'm Broken
Acid Bath - Dead Girl
Acid Bath - Fingerpaintings of the Insane
Anthrax - Metal Thrashing Mad
Anthrax - Safe Home
Anthrax - Keep It In The Family
Anthrax - Belly of the Beast
Anthrax - Be All, End All
Anthrax - Catharsis
Death - Jealousy
Death - Perennial Quest
Death - Flesh and the Power It Holds
Megadeth - Hook in Mouth
Megadeth - Sweating Bullets
Megadeth - Holy Wars ... The Punishment Due
Megadeth - Tornado of Souls
Slayer - Hallowed Point
Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss
Slayer - Mind Control
Slayer - Hell Awaits
Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls
Metallica - ...And Justice For All (entire record)
Metallica - Battery
Crotchduster - Mammal Sauce
Crowbar - Suffering Brings Wisdom
Motorhead - Orgasmatron
Sepultura - Territory
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

That was the short list. Obviously, different bands do different things for me. What I like about Warrel Dane as a lyricist has very little to do with what I like about Phil Anselmo or Dax Rigs or Scott Ian as a lyricist.

All the lyrics off Psycroptic's The Scepter Of The Ancients. Particularly a Planetary Discipline. I tripped out when I read that huge theory about cunts that live in the sun or something like that. Exhumed's Carnal Epitaph is another song that springs to mind. And Gorguts' Elusive Treasures (I think it's about Atlantis).

Oh fuck, I almost forgot. Demonaz's lyrics crack me up big time. What a champ.

Why isn' this in Poetry Lyrical? Also, Rime of the Ancient Mariner isn't written by Iron Maiden. Well the original anyway, it's by Coleridge, I believe.

Wrong forum buddy. This does go in the "lyric" forum. That's why it's there, and there is already a thread for it...but I'll move this one over there and let those mods deal with it if they feel like closing it or whatever...

Most of the song's lyrics are original. There are a few stanzas taken from the original poem ('Day after day, day after day' through 'but not a drop to drink' and the spoken section), which is by Coleridge, but for the most part it's an original parse by Steve Harris and can be credited as such. I prefer Dickinson as a lyricist, at least generally.

Oooh yeah they're fucking sick bastards. That song owns.

But one of my favourites is "Dissmissed From Life" by Deepred. The way the lyrics/vocals go with the riffs is fantastic.
