 Too melodic and sparkly for me, but better than 99% of the music on any site.

Good on ya Jack!

 @suspended-flesh: Even though I had heard the name before, I never actually listened to them before and I wasn't aware that it was so melodic, consonant and without any tempo changes or syncopation. A bit disappointed to be honest. Of course categorizing music styles is just as much of a pain as categorizing mountainbike riding styles but I feel for something to be metal they need to at least play a bit with dissonance and rhythmic variation. Otherwise it is pop.

That said, the music worked well with the riding so overall it was nicely done.

If you like this review, don't forget to hit the green "up" button. If you don't, by all means hit all red buttons you see. I'll be back with a new review next week.

 @whambat: This is how the Godfather of Metal dressed.

Nothing wrong with wearing white.

 Love that Jack is the fastest in the world and still looks like he's having so much fun on the bike. The Rut-hopping is too good!

 Fridays were sad.
Saturdays were fun.
Sundays were lucky.
...but Mondays are definitely my favorite of the alliteration videos. I know it's not a pink bike produced video, but it still uses the same literary technique, Soni lump them together.

Metal Mondays just have the right energy. It's what we need. The collective "we", not the royal "we"

 Jack Moir is the hero that could lead us to salvation by singlehandedly stopping our fevered feeding frenzy on big MTB'S corporate spew while it slowly swirls around the drain

 Keep these vids coming Jack, heaps of us have come outta the metal/punk/hc scene. I usually ride in cutoff metal t shirts

Speaking of which, some Discharge or English Dogs would go down well for the next edit

 Fast, brutal shredding and I don't mean the music.

 They need a new button on Youtube instead of thumbs up - should be able to throw metal horns at this for absolute stoke level!

 This reminds me of the 'good ol' mtb days, of Palmer, Kovarik etc. Finally some class and attitude back in MTB. And, just when I thought Intense where on there way back to a racing and top step podiums, they drop this guy!!! Canyon must be loving this!

 I was trying to figure out how to describe "metal where the singer does the opposite of falsetto and instead tries to make their voice sound as low as possible" - you got it, Cookie Monster Metal.

 Heavy metal fits great! Maybe Commencal bois should also rap, metal seems to be much safer politically Wink
  • 11 5
 Black metal...
  • 12 3
 I meant that Commencal bois shoud *drop* rap.
Regarding the black metal ...I would stop using this phrase, for sure you can find at least one person who feels offended by it.

 @suspended-flesh: If the pellet is shriveled anyway, wouldn't there be some room left for your soul too? There's room for everyone see?

Yes indeed, I'm a death metal hippie. That said, this reminded me of the video to "Unfinished Business" by Altar. He didn't quite leave her a choice other than light a fire. That said, they should still talk it out afterwards. Yes, still a hippie.
