Highly recommend this album and their other one. All their songs keep getting taken down by the record company off the internet everywhere but if you search hard enough, you can still find it. It's my personal fav metal album of all time.
I’m such a sucker for some trve diabolical black metal, but here’s a more scenic and peaceful black metal jam for you all to enjoy. >>28620
I can’t believe I’ve never listened to these guys before, thank you for the suggestion anon! Loving this album so far.
Np, glad you enjoy it! Their label is preventing people from discovering their music and it's such a shame.
Please listen to their other album Paegan Terrorism Tactics. The song Venus Blue has the most ultimate 90s vibe!

What did y’all think of the new Tool album?
Since I didn't leave comments on these, I'll say something -
Eyehategod are one of the key sludge metal bands, maybe THE key one besides Melvins (who someone else posted), though bands like Acid Bath (also above), Down, Neurosis, Buzzov*en, and Dystopia are also significant. EHG are my favorite for just communicating pure misery. They wanted to sound like "if Black Sabbath was a punk band," though there's also a strong southern blues element.
Behemoth are an amazing semi-mainstream death metal band comparable to bands like Gojira. If you like their style but want something more underground, I'd also recommend Archgoat and Beherit. This isn't the best Behemoth video, but I wanted to promote House of Strombo, George Strombo's new music/talk show (he's a great journalist).
Napalm Death are actually a fascinating band that gets underrated for how thoughtful they were. They had their roots in the Crass-centered anarcho-punk scene and were very influenced by early crust punk, but they tied in major Celtic Frost and Slayer influences to their sound, spawning grindcore. They're connected to lots of other major bands, like Carcass and Godflesh/Jesu. As time went on, they became more and more death metal, but always with a noisy avant-garde edge.
Martyrdöd are a really great band that fuses melodic death metal and crust punk, with a little black metal. They have their roots in the band Skitsystem.
Dawn Ray'd are a solid black metal band with references to peasant revolts, paganism, and revolutionary themes. Sorta like the Rage Against the Machine of black metal. They're notable contemporaries of Panopticon.
Celtic Frost are one of the most influential extreme metal bands ever, and they were a huge influence on both black metal and death metal. They're connected to the bands Hellhammer and Triptykon.
Rotten Sound are a great, really heavy, really crisp grindcore band.>>28938
This is a great album>>28555
Yes, it's hilarious, strongly recommended.
Jinjer (a Russian band)
Arch Enemy (especially with their previous vocalist)
New Year's Day- who tends to be more poppy metal but I still like them
I know there are more, but I can't think of them sorry lol
this shit is heavy as hell, and that is a 17 year old girl singing. even the growling, absolutely insane.
also female vocals on this, and liz buckingham from electric wizard was in this band. really eerie and heavy.
i actually hate female vocals in metal especially if it's really feminine with high notes. but these bands are so fucking good, i'm very sad they didn't release more.
>>53018>and is into more obscure and heavy bands.
You mean obscure and heavy bands that were born trying desperately to copy metallica and iron maiden?
All genres of heavy metal are an offshoot of those big bands from the late 70s and 80s that everyone knows. Liking obscure bands doesn't give you extra points, you are still listening to riffs ripped off from megadeth. In metal everyone just changes the tempo a bit and calls it a new genre.
>>53048> You mean obscure and heavy bands that were born trying desperately to copy metallica and iron maiden?
nta but you couldn't be more wrong. There are tons of subgenres within metal and a lot of them are completely different from the mainstream metal that it would be hard to tell they even belong to the same genre if it weren't for the umbrella term.
Like Metallica haven't copied everything. They wouldn't exist without Black Sabbath and other obscure British metal bands.
They used to play covers and pretend they were Metallica songs!
and I agree with you, it's the term "metalhead" that brings elitist meathead guys to mind.
>its all metal anyways regardless of aesthetic changes. If you are a fan of any of it you are a metal fan
This so much.
That's why I love this thread so much because I like to check everything farmers are posting here because metal has so many faces that makes me discover stuff that I didn't considered to listen to before.
This makes me wonder: What are your fave metal genres? >>53158
>Is everyone here good at headbanging? Or do you just dance like this to your fave songs?
It really depends on my location during a concert. If I have enough space for banging, then yes, I love to do it but when no, then I just dance and jump around or joining the pit for a bit because banging while not having too much space sucks bc I always end with a stiff neck after that tho lol
>>28299>What are your fave metal genres?
This is a hard question because I think most of the bands I listen to are mixes of genres. I think the ones I listen to most are power metal, symphonic metal and doom metal. Like one of my favorite bands is Blind Guardian, they're power metal but a lot of their music is very symphonic too. I also like any metal that incorporates a medieval/minstrel sound to it, or doom metal that has symphonic mixed with it. I also love progressive metal but my ex boyfriend was obsessed with Opeth and now listening to them just makes me think of him and I can't find other prog bands that I like.
I feel weird liking power metal though because people always say it's "the most masculine metal genre" and "women don't like power metal". I feel like I can't share that I like power metal because people would think I'm weird.
What are your favorite genres? and also, what genre would you say Lacuna Coil is? They are always labeled symphonic metal but I don't see what's symphonic about them.

What are other bands like Alcest? First metal group I love. I also enjoyed Sunbather a bit but didn't listen to it as much
Man, I just love black metal so much. I took a short break from listening to metal because I felt kind of bored, which is crazy when I reflect on it. I listened to a lot of death metal when I first got into metal and I guess after listening to a lot of classic albums and loving them, I wasn't too impressed with a lot of newer death metal stuff. I felt like it didn't pack as much of a punch or I found myself lost in a sea of cannibal corpse rip-offs. I don't particularly care for ultra clean production in death metal either, i feel low-fi production does help add that extra layer of grit. Sometimes anyways.
I also want to say that Paracletus is hands down one of my most favourite albums of all time and rekindled my love for metal again. God bless this thread. You all have impeccable taste.>>52970
I kind of feel the same way. I tend stick to black metal for the most part.
