About the only metal I like are Metallica and a few tracks by System of a down.

Other than that... its a bit bonkers isnt int?




Swoz_MK -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (8/2/2012 2:23:38 PM)

Some, but there's a tonne of "chilled", rather beautiful metal out there. Try some Jex Thoth and see how you get on with that.

No, Dizzie Rascal isn't metal.

Anyone here into Watain? I've been listening to this album pretty much non stop for the last 3 days. Legions Of The Black Light has a killer main riff and the vocals are fucking cool. The whole thing is awesome really.

Fantastic band and stunning live.


Not heard them, must give them a go with these recommendations.

Reign in blood?

If pushed I would say I prefer Megadeth. Into the lungs of hell is a tune.




Swoz_MK -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 12:42:11 PM)

There's only a few Megadeth songs I like, Mustaine's whine does my head in.
Slayer were pretty good up to and including Undisputed Attitude but they have been bloody awful since and should've packed it in a long time ago.

Megadeth are superb. Everything they did between Peace Sells and Youthanasia was classic (particularly Rust In Peace and Countdown To Extinction) and after a few shit albums they've been back on form with Endgame and TH1RT3EN.

Seriously? I admit they're a hit and miss band album wise but God Hates Us All and Christ Illusion are great albums and also the best stuff they've done recently. The last album World Pained Blood was a bit lame but I suspect that had more to do with the overrated Rick Rubin that the band.




Swoz_MK -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 1:10:59 PM)

I don't agree, especially as Rubin produced Reighn In Blood!
Obviously thrash can only progress so far but all of their post UA records have bored me rigid.




UTB -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 1:32:50 PM)

I like metal though probably half of the belong in sub-genres of metal


Coliseum
Slayer
Black Breath
Megadeth
Havok
Drunken Bastards
Metallica
Stone Sour
Grief Of War
Victims

to name but a few.





losthighway -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 1:44:20 PM)

I like 'metal' but with a side order of industrial/electronica/dance, e.g.

NIN
Filter
White Zombie
Rob Zombie
Alec Empire
Rammstein
Deftones

Oh and I find Metallica seriously over-rated but hey each to their own! [:)] 





sam89 -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 2:43:22 PM)

About half the music I listen to is metal, but I tend to stick more to the melodic side of the genre. Symphonic metal is particularly awesome, along the lines of Nightwish, Within Temptation, Dimmu Borgir, etc. I do love some of the heavier stuff as well, though. The one sub-genre I'm not really fond of is death metal, although I appreciate its technicality and musicianship.

I've only seen them once and that was a couple of years ago, but it really felt like they were 'going through the motions'. Tom Araya fucked up the lyrics for Angel of Death too. I did get to hear War Ensemble and Disciple live though, which was lovely.

Rick Rubin is a joke these days. His albums sound terrible and by all accounts he's become an extremely lazy producer. Reign In Blood was a long time ago.

White Zombie were the first band I ever saw live. [:)]




Squidward Hark Bugle -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 5:33:09 PM)

Opeth is, for me, the greatest metal band of all time. I think they're the only band to truly express the angst and frustration that metal is said to represent, while at the same time branching out into other styles and emotions. It's as though they were angry at first, then they calmed down and experienced other things besides anger, as they moved from straight-out anger into a type of calm melancholy and darkness, as evidenced by their forays into jazz fusion (Still Life) and psychedelic rock (Damnation). The music takes you on journeys that feel familiar, but which lead you to places you've never been. Always captivating, fully engrossing, alternately uplifting and depressing, encompassing both the dark and light sides of the human psyche, Opeth is a behemoth band in the world of metal and music in general.

Spaldron -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 5:53:12 PM)

I love Opeth (particularly Blackwater Park) but their last album didn't excite me very much and I'm sorry to say they're boring as hell live.




DancingClown -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 7:04:57 PM)

Personally I love Heritage. Although my favourite Opeth albums are definitely Ghost Reveries and Watershed; Ghost of Perdition, Harlequin Forest, The Lotus Eater and Hessian Peel I would single out as being uniquely brilliant songs.

Can't wait for the Mikael Akerfeldt/Steven Wilson uber collaboration Storm Corrosion. [:D]

Heritage was fairly weak in my opinion. I still enjoy it, though. The Opeth sound will never really go away. Ghost Of Perdition is fucking immense!

I'm personally not holding my breath for Storm Corrosion. I'm not a fan of Steven Wilson in any way and his involvement with Opeth was detrimental to the band's development rather than beneficial. Porcupine Tree bores the hell out of me.




horribleives -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (9/2/2012 8:27:42 PM)

Been listening to Pelican all day today. Any fans on here?




DancingClown -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (10/2/2012 7:25:14 AM)

Currently giving The Hunter a whirl.

Wow.

I have an album of their laying around somewhere. I remember enjoying it, but think that they had a terrible drummer.

The first time I listened to it I almost wept with joy when the opening riff to Blasteroid kicked in.
Also, the first two minutes or so of Thickening has roughly ten times more ideas than most bands fit into their entire careers.

Pelican headlined when I went to see Torche a few years ago. Not my thing.




DancingClown -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (11/2/2012 10:09:58 PM)

I gotta say I'm fascinated by all the genres and sub-genres of heavy-metal, and how even the sub-genres have sub-genres; sub-sub genres if you will. I have made it my mission to sample as much as I can for each sub-genre in the hopes of finding some more new stuff. Here's a list of as many as I can find, although there's bound to be more:

Classic Metal

Black

Unblack(!)

Death

Melodic Death

Tech Death

Thrash

Speed

Christian(!)

Crust

Doom

Funeral Doom (surely the same thing?)

Drone

Djent

Sludge

Stoner

Extreme (most are...)

Folk/Pagan/Celtic

Funk

Glam

Groove

Gothic

Grindcore

Industrial

Metalcore

Mathcore

Deathcore

Nintendocore (??????)

Neo-Classical

Nu-Metal

Post-Metal

Power

Progressive

Rap (hmm....)

Symphonic

Viking


Some of these crossover into each-other, of course, and I'm sure opinion is divided into where exactly some bands may reside in terms of genre. I'm sure there's some I've left out.




horribleives -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (12/2/2012 1:39:17 PM)

I've heard the likes of Jesu (who are fucking awesome and made the best album of last year) referred to as 'metalgaze'.




Spaldron -> RE: Anyone into metal here? (12/2/2012 5:12:15 PM)

Anyone seen Metal - A Headbangers Journey? Really good film and explains a lot about all the sub-genres.

I'm watching it on Youtube as we speak. Is this the same Canadian guy who co-made the Iron Maiden Flight 666 doc?

Yup, Sam Dunn I believe his name is.
