If Metal Lyrics Were Motivational Posters


Buzzfeed has jumped on the motivational poster train (about five years late) and on the heavy metal bandwagon (three years after other mainstream publications) with a post entitled “18 Motivational Posters to Rock Your World,” which actually just seems like it’s sponsored content for Spotify.

I commend Buzzfeed for trying, but whoever wrote this post really missed the mark: the author has an inexplicable fondness for bad mid-’00s metalcore/screamo (The Used, Haste the Day, Chiodos) and credited “Holy Diver” as being written by Killswitch Engage (until a commenter called them out on it and they changed it, covering their tracks by re-labeling it a “Killswitch Engage cover”).

Still, a few of these are mildly entertaining. Some highlights:

Slayer - "Seasons in the Abyss"
Slayer – “Seasons in the Abyss”
Motorhead - “Killed by Death”
Motorhead – “Killed by Death”
Between the Buried and Me - “Astral Body”
Between the Buried and Me – “Astral Body”

We’re sure MetalSucks readers can do better. Send in your own metal motivational posters to news[at] and we’ll post the best ones!
