"Metal" is the best thread title here

Original Post:

I’ve always liked metal, but I don’t know (m)any metal bands, so I don’t listen to much metal.

I know for a fact we have some metal fans here. Tell me exactly what I should listen to.

I have still never seen Gojira live, and I feel like I’m missing out because of that.

Apreche Said:

Can confirm.

Also, that stupid show is in Philly, and one-time only.

Oh cool, Scott can disable new thread creation now, we have all the ones we need.

I found this r/progmetal post a while ago. This kind of stuff is my jam.


#3

I have found Civil War zombie metal, which has defeated Pirate Chiptune Metal for strangest concept on Bandcamp.

Why does metal produce such strange combinations so much more than other genres?


#4

Lars and James on Song Exploder!


#5

Bulgarian vacation anyone?


#6

The new Code Orange album is pretty dam good. Great varied sound and heavy as concrete slippers.

I am so far behind in consuming new metal. Ugh. There’s just too much to keep track of these days. I read shreddit every day and still can’t keep on top of what I should be checking out.

I ask the thread: what were your favorite releases of 2016?

Mine, in no particular order:

Fleshgod Apocalypse - King
Fallujah - Dreamless
Cobalt - Slow Forever
Inquisition - Bloodshed Across…
Ihsahn - Arktis
Metallica - Hardwired…
Oranssi Pazuzu - that one in Finnish
Alcest - Kodama

I heard 3 times that many new releases, but these were the standouts to me.

There’s new MaSu!

Well, from last year, but I just heard about it.


#10

I’m sure I stuck this up on the old thread but good god If Marmozets don’t blow your socks off I don’t know what will.

It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a crossover album, but the latest from Power Trip just fucking slays me.

I don’t know what kind of music I was expecting, but it wasn’t exactly this:


#15

The new Dragonforce album is coming. Whatever about their music. I just want to say I am really really into that album cover. It’s not just a dragon, it’s a fucking cyber dragon. And that green on silver is totally my jam in terms of colors. If I made a metal album, the cover art wouldn’t be too far off from that.


#16

I’m sure that people have already heard this one but I gave Beartooth’s Disgusting a listen for the first time this weekend. Pretty good over all. Great challenging lyrics, whopper beat downs with some good crunch. The only rub I have is that the clean vocals are a bit to soft for me. Remind me a little to much of the bad days of waves of naff emo bands that came out. Over all defiantly worth a listen.

Hot dam are Employed to Serve on fire! Their first album was almost a demo for the next. I mean rifts for days, vocals that will leave you stunned and just this great vibe through out. Well worth a listen.

“Your church is complete, Lord Vader”

  • Enormous edifice out front
  • Concrete walls
  • Black pews

If that’s not the metalest church I’ve ever seen. More here:

I don’t know how to describe Skindred other than it is like nothing I have heard before and I love it.


#20

They put on a great live show, they’re one of those bands that just seems to be thoroughly enjoying themselves whenever they perform.
