What does the title mean?[edit]

Does anybody know what Stomp 442 means? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.192.104.251 (talk) 07:59, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Not speed metal[edit]

I'm reverting this album to groove metal for the pure purpose of common sense - just because AllMusic may list the album as 'speed metal' does not necessarily mean the descriptor is accurate - this is in fact a generalisation hat refers back to the more popular 80s material and does not reflect the material on this album. It's common knowledge that Anthrax in the 90s changed their style to something not related to speed metal and BARELY related to thrash in order to fit with the common trends at the time (for example listen to a band such as Exciter or Agent Steel, then listen to this album - you will notice the difference how this genre tag is completely inaccurate for 90s Anthrax.)

I think it's ridiculous that just because a "professional source" lists a genre with their review that it automatically means it's correct - it is NOT, and I think it's also daft that in order to list the accurate genre for the album - you have to find an alternative "professional source" from somewhere else that isn't AllMusic in order to prove it's correct - this is something that had to be done with the Chaos AD album when it was listed as "death metal", and guess what - no, it is NOT death metal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.9.139.27 (talk) 21:13, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

In fact if you need a source, look at this article http://www.villagevoice.com/music/anthrax-and-joey-belladonna-keep-it-in-the-family-6433001 which refers to the four 90s Anthrax albums. "The lean, brusque alt-metal that accompanied a four-album Billboard decline is gone"

So if you want to be picky, tag it as alternative metal, groove metal whatever - at the end of the day it's not speed metal and it's misleading for the readers if you think otherwise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.9.139.27 (talk) 21:17, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

This is definitely not speed metal. It's closer to thrash metal, but even closer to groove metal. I changed it. If AllMusic's word can be taken, then mine can, too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iron Wizard13 (talkcontribs) 04:37, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
