I really like listening to Batushka but after the inner fights between band members, I can't enjoy their music as much as I used to, it's like the magic's a bit gone.
I also wanted to order some shirts from Batushka's store but I've read that the store owner sends out literal trash or rocks instead of actual packages which sucks because I love the art.

Anyhow, I've been listening to Mgla on repeat. Also, I ordered a few more shirts from bands I like to add to my metal band shirts collection.

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.

This is a great album

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.

No. 53055

> 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.

No. 53058


>all these flavors of the pentatonic scale and megadeth riffs are completely different

I love metal but you are just very naive, Black metal for example was born because a bunch of kids could not play iron maiden properly. All metal has branched out of those 80s bands and the influence is obvious. Genres and subgenres mean aesthetic changes but it all sounds like metal and anyone would recognize it as such, its the silliest thing to call any of that "true metal" over the actual originators of the sound.

This makes me wonder: What are your fave metal genres?


>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

>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.

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.

Let's get some kind of discussion going (a first for me).

I'm curious to know how did you all find yourselves becoming either metal heads or liking metal in general? I tend to find that many metalheads nowadays seem to exclusively get into metal because their parents like metal or it was present in their childhood.

I'm probably the most unlikely metalhead ever. I never knew anybody who liked metal and I am a black girl. I grew up listening to regular normie pop music and made some attempt to be in the know of what songs were trendy. One day, I wanted to develop myself as a person and develop my own interests and the best place i felt to start was with music. I stumbled across old school death metal and fell deep into a rabbit hole of appreciating i guess more "unorthodox" styles of music ever since, across all genres in general and being open minded with all forms of art.

I was curious if anybody else had any similar stories to share.

No. 76697

what does being black have to do with your music taste? Not being sarcastic here

No. 76753

Nothing. Vast majority of metal heads are white and because of that alone, the chances of being exposed to it is greatly lower, especailly more obscure stuff. I thought it was an obvious observation.

No. 77108

>I tend to find that many metalheads nowadays seem to exclusively get into metal because their parents like metal or it was present in their childhood.
That's exactly me, my brother was a metalhead, he liked Metallica a lot. I never really particularly liked any of his music but I think it accustomed me to heavier music so when I listened to other heavy music I didn't find it weird/scary, and I eventually found what I liked. I have to confess the first music I actually liked was from Slipknot…
I don't know how my brother became a metalhead since nobody else in my family was. I think maybe because of Guitar Hero lol

No. 77291

I got into metal as a teenager through people posting about the 90s Norwegian black metal scene on tumblr lol. I followed some people who would post pictures of Euronymous, Dead, Varg, Fenriz, Faust, etc. and i was intrigued by the ~aesthetic~ and evil mystique surrounding the scene so I checked out some Burzum, Mayhem, Darkthrone, etc. and fell in love. Black metal is still my preferred subgenre and since I came into it through an extreme subgenre route and not the heavy, thrash, or nu-metal route it seems like most people take I’m still mostly drawn to black and death metal. For me it went black > thrash > death. I was into stuff like Swans and Nine Inch Nails before too but I don’t really consider those metal.

I don’t know if I would consider myself a metalhead though since I don’t really participate in anything IRL. Went to one Slayer show and that was it. I wish I had more friends into metal.

I did make my first steps into hard rock with the help of my uncle, yes he likes metallica (the black album to be specific and that's about it) but mostly you well known hard rock acts from the 60s-late 80s. I really went into rock when I was around 17 but at some point I didn't felt like it was enough for me so I got inspired by the osbournes to listen to Black Sabbath (not the solo ozzy stuff) and really liked the music and overall aesthetic so I dig around and endend up listening to obscure psychedelic/doom/occult metal bands.
As the other anon here mentioned here, I also got exposed to black metal through tumblr, because I also liked the visuals of it but did not listened to it because I was way too much of a pussy at this point so I stayed in my lil witchcraft inspired metal thingy. I also loved pentagram next to black sabbath and other stuff that I can't remember now. But at some point I was like, I need to look deeper into the metal genre and got into thrash and death metal (which is waaay to extreme for my uncle, since I like to share my music discoveries with him but for example the early metallica stuff is already too hard for him. I still tiptoe my way around black metal lol

Sorry for the late response, I liked Mgla's new album. I'm pretty new to them so I don't really know which one I like the most.

My brother is a metalhead, he liked symphonic metal and owned various band shirts. One day when I was like 10, I searched for Nightwish on youtube and liked it so much, then went downhill from there. He even gave me a Nightwish shirt too, I still have it, it is so small and doesn't fit me anymore.
Then I heard every possible symphonic metal till I became tired and started to explore other subgenres. Today what I like the best is (still don't know what to call it without generating discussion) blackgaze like Deafheaven, Alcest, etc. I'm a big BMTH fan too.
As a metalhead, sometimes I feel ashamed to say that I like some emo bands and other artists who aren't metal at all. Not ashamed to like, it's just that feels like other metalheads will judge me but whatever, right?

I was in middle school, when I received my very first iPod as a gift, but I didn't had a PC, so I asked a friend of mine to fill it up with whatever music he wanted to. His brother listened to a lot of music, so there was a couple of System of a Down songs.
From that moment on, I dug futher into metal throught all of my youth.
When I moved to university I quit listening to metal because I'm fucking stupid and thought it would be fine for me trying to get into other genres. I explored, found very cool stuff, but quickly lost interest.
Until recently, I started talking again with a friend who's a metalhead, felt nostalgic and got back into metal. Result is, after more than a year with no music (besides japanese music) I now wake up wanting to listen to music and discover more and more.

I wish I knew you. irl all the people I know listen to regular metal, dad rock type of thing. Finding someone who listens to BM is hard and it's even harder to find someone who likes atmospheric/cosmic BM.
Shards of Silver Fade is my favourite album of his as well. I also love his experiment album, Converge Rivers of Hell. Did you listen to that one?
He's honestly a genius for a one man band to create such great albums.
Have you listened to the recent Mesarthim album? I thought you might like it.
Sorry for pestering you with my questions, but I don't get to talk about BM a lot, irl or online. I would love to know more about which other bands you like.

speaking of underrated slayer albums: I hate how much slayer itself and many fans tend to overlook and ignore Divine Intervention. I mean sure, it's the first album without Dave and King absolute hates the sound mix of it but damn I love it. It's heavy, aggressive and dark and imo the last "real" slayer album. It was also released in the mid 90s and the state of metal at this point was ugh not the same as it used to be in the 80s. Prefer it over "South of Heaven" tbh.

Do any anons here have battle jackets? Because I tiptoe around the idea of making one for a very long time now but at the same time I feel like I'm not "true metal" enough to wear one lol. I find them super cute (I know, not THE reason why you should make one kek) and I love the idea of broadcasting your taste in metal music on one piece of cloth but at the same time I feel like it belongs to the half human and half bear type of metalhead than somebody like me.

Please listen to this song. From the moment I heard the first riff I knew I would love this band, so I want to show it to you all, someone might love it like I do.
I don't know what to think about them, it definitely looks dumb but it's amazing to see a jacket covered in patches because it takes lots of time and money. And it's also good because you can show what you like and maybe make friends who like the same bands. I think it looks best though if you get just one huge patch and put it over the back of the jacket. Or you could put them on a bag/backpack, I've seen some people like that, it looks a bit cooler than a jacket in my opinion
This is really nice I love the guitar sound, I wish the vocals were all screams though

Hell yeah, I loved mgla first and then I found out they have another band, now I love kriegsmaschine even more than mgla, the overall feeling is just completely nihilistic. Their drummer is like a god, sometimes it sounds to me like he is just banging randomly but he's drumming the same pattern over and over, it's just too complex for my plebeian ears.

Hey me too. I really like Looking for Semblance by Death Comes Crawling, a darkwave/dark synth album. It was made by the same guy who does atmospheric black metal under the name of Midnight Odyssey so definitely check him out. I keep shilling him everywhere but I truly think his works are great.

Here are some others that I like:
White Ward - Love Exchange Failure
Путь - Песни смерти
Midnight Odyssey / Igric / Aeon Winds - Ardorem
Ofdrykkja - Gryningsvisor
Selbst - Relatos de Angustia
There's also Mgla and Kriegsmaschine that were mentioned previously, Panzerfaust, Batushka, 1914, The Ruins of Beverast (check his Exuvia) and these are quite popular in BM circles.

Guys, I'm overjoyed, one of my favorite bands of all time, Elend has announced a new album (they are not metal but only metalheads listen to them afaik)! They hadn't released new material in 13 years and for the past two or or three years they've hinted the release or something new, and there we are, new album by the end of the year with remasters and vinyls of their previous albums. You have no idea how happy I am about this!

Same, I have like two IRL friend who I can talk music with and only one listens to BM, and I don't frequent online communities like RYM because they are pozzed with woke shit.
I think Biolume will become my favorite album of his with time, the melodies and atmospheres are more of my taste, more intimate and diverse. I haven't listened to his other project. I have not heard of the band you posted, but I really liked it!
In BM, I love Schammasch, The Ruins of Beverast (Rain Upon the Impure is actually my favorite BM album), Hail Spirit Noir, Blut Aus Nord, Nokturnal Mortum, Summoning, Pensées Nocturnes, Glaciation, Deathspell Omega (only the trilogy) and a few others. I don't like 90s norwegian BM, I prefer more modern stuff (but not shitty American bands like Deafheaven), what are your favorite bands?

Do you know of the amazing black metal scene on Iceland? If you don't, here are my recommendations:

Sinmara, Svartidauði (they sound sort of "standard", not in a bad way, but in the way that everything else on my list I compare to their sound, I would recommend them to anyone)
Misthyrming (their first album is in my opinion one of the best black metal albums, ever)
Endalok (sounds like being trapped in an icy cave)
Naðra (this is a bit more "rock and roll" if that makes sense)
0 (it' s more doom than black metal, like Naðra but very slow; it's hard to google so here: https://0000000.bandcamp.com/)
Skáphe (this is 50% icelandic but I want to mention it, sounds like literal hell, I posted it above.)
Almyrkvi, Andavald, Wormlust, Abominor (less angry pummeling and more atmosphere)
Mannveira (sounds dissonant and distorted and real angry)
Martröð (international band, all the members are very skilled musicians for example Wrest)

Most of the bands here share members and sound similar, so if you like one of the bands you will probably like the rest, so I ask of you all to check just one of these, and if you have to listen to just one song, try the one I embedded. There's so many more bands besides these. Can you believe that there's so many amazing black metal bands there though?? Iceland has a population of only 360 000.
Also a bonus: half of these bands I listed have their albums free to download on bandcamp.

I am this anon, I just listened to the full album:
I like it, it's my favorite of Uada's albums so far. Each song is different, unlike on the previous albums where I think they all sounded the same and forgettable. The style is a bit different, it's sort of more rock'n'roll but I like it. The vocals I like better than before because the vocalist isn't changing his screams style every five seconds like in the past, which I mean props to him to be able to do that but I found it annoying. The first two songs are a bit boring, but the rest are interesting, especially No Place Here, Forestless and Between Two Worlds. The middle part of Between Two Worlds is especially nice, it's sort of doomy.
Just don't read the lyrics because they ruin everything, holy shit. Honorable mention:
>Individualism versus collectivism, what is free will if the will cannot be free?
Well… If you don't read the lyrics it's alright because you can't really decipher any words out of the screaming.
Overall I recommend it, but not if you expect something like Mgła. If you didn't like the previous Uada, you might like this and vice versa.
Thanks anon I really liked that. It's like a mix between black metal and punk music. I checked out the newest album too and I liked that one better. nice

Also I would like to recommend this album I linked. It's black metal but with sort of industrial or something sounds? I'm not well versed enough to describe it accurately. Anyway the drums sound powerful, the guitar melodies are wonderful, the production is great and the songs are very interesting, I wish I had heard of them sooner because they are good so I wanted to tell you all about them too.

Likely a stupid question, but how do you get into metal? I like some of what I've heard. It began with Melvins (went to a concert before corona, it was awesome) and I'm enjoying this thread. But I want to know if there's a good online community or something to better keep up so I can be "in the know"? Listening to random albums/tracks is fun but I'd like to discover in an orderly way. Don't wanna miss out or be oblivious to things most would know. Some anons mentioned tumblr, that could be a start?
This is stupider and not important, but would anything 'bar' someone from liking metal? What I mean is, I see a lot of violence and nihilism in lyrics. I don't care about that and it seems cathartic actually. But It's hard to tell how much is for the aesthetic. Those of you who enjoy it, does it take a toll on your outlook? I have depression but I feel like it could also be like I said, cathartic, a means of release from these emotions. I felt that when I listened to some and can fall asleep to heavier, slower stuff. A lot of the imagery is captivating like a story as well. So, maybe I'm thinking this for nothing. Sorry I know I sound dumb as fuck but I don't wanna be a fool. Thanks

>how do you get into metal?
As mentioned, tumblr is still a good place to get into specific community. it helped me back in the day a lot when I just started to get into "classic rock" and shit because I found a lot girl around my age that were interested in the same bands. But I also know that there is also a huge metal scene, especially when it come to specific bands like Metallica being obv the biggest one and stuff like.

Another thing that helped me when I got into metal was last.fm because I just browsed through the genre tags and listened to the radio stations they had which recommended you similar artists, which then again made you check out more bands. Like here is the thrash page with artists that all in the genre: https://www.last.fm/de/tag/thrash+metal/artists

It also had this handy event planner thingy, which helped me to get in touch people who also went to shows in went. Idk how it is today because stopped using this page years ago and I know it went through some changes.

Then I like to click around on youtube with stuff that looks interesting? Idk, just seeing this one band name and thinking "yeah" I could like that" lol That's another way I found bands I would've never found otherwise.

>Those of you who enjoy it, does it take a toll on your outlook?

No, not really. There songs where I maybe first thought "fuck this is fucked up" but at the second time around it is just a song I enjoy. Maybe it is because it's over the top brutal and idk ugly because otherwise you have not a chance to enjoy those things? I found metal to be very relaxing in some moments for so maybe you have to find something that works for you. Metal as a whole has A LOT to offer so I'm pretty confident that you will find something fits you!

you are always going to like what you like, don't be intimidated by outward appearances, 97% its just people putting on a show, being edgy for humor. metal does have some edgy elitists who are assholes, and everyone is annoyed by them. everyone likes what they like and you shouldn't feel embarrassed by fucking 666kvlt_i_hate_xtsians666 getting mad at you because your favorite band isn't some obscure tape recorded on a dishwasher in 1997 and is on spotify.

i also have depression and i feel like listening to metal can be really therapeutic, music is just an outward expression and if i for example listen to MGłA, exercises in futility, it really just encapsulates how i feel and makes me feel less alone. Metal is in incredibly diverse genera, you have anything from doom, stoner, psychedelic to thrash, death, black, and alternative and don't forget all the cross-over that happens in genera all the time.

it can be intimidating at first ngl but overall your going to find a music that you love and a community of people that like the same things as you. alot of metalheads were in your shoes once so don't be embarrassed!

I've been listening to the latest TRoB on repeat for the past few days and I really have no idea on what to think of this album, it's puzzling me. I cannot identify its themes or subjects, even Blood Vaults (a very subpar album imo) has stronger atmospheres. I need to listen to it many times I guess, it took me a long time to get into Rain upon the Impure and it's now my favorite BM record ever, but I'm far from convinced yet.

I love this album there's so much pew pyyyeeew sounds

No. 140040

Coheed and mcr are just dad rock worship so u could listen to Pink Floyd or queen it would scratch that itch and u could say ur into metal lol

The used r more interesting, the 2005 album still had obvious ~real emo~ influence and a member of coalesce, a respected metalcore band did backing vocals so it u liked that given them a listen and try get into metal via the core route

always think it’s weird when people try and get into this stuff as adult ngl, if it didn’t catch your attention as a kid why would it as an adult

No. 140380

It's got it's moments (upon first listen I like Sphynx and Grind particularly) but I'm overall pretty meh on it. I know bands change and that Gojira has moved away from the heavy shit for the most part, which I have nothing against, but a lot of it just sounds like boring radio rock upon first listen. I'll give the album a chance though, it might grow on me. Some of the softer songs on Magma weren't my favorites before but I really like them now, like Low Lands for example.

No. 140444

I agree mostly with what you said, but I don't find it boring at all. I think it's very interesting and beautiful, but I do miss how songs used to be longer and more.. full of sound but I can always go back to listen those older albums. I like it much, much better than Magma; I love the themes of the songs and the variety. And that humming in Fortitude and the Chant has been playing over and over in my head since I heard it

I would love Akhlys if the vocals didn't sound like that, but I guess it's an acquired taste so I will listen to it more. I think you would like Guðveiki, if you like it the entire record label Mystiskaos has similar music, it's run by Alex Poole and H.V. Lyngdal, members of Guðveiki. Actually I think they are in half of the bands on Mystiskaos, Iceland is a small country.

No. 150800

It's not that I dislike it, I just don't feel anything listening to it, I don't get the atmospheres and the themes which are usually the band's strongest points, even Blood Vaults gives me stronger emotions (mostly of boredom though). I keep coming back to the album and I never manage to fully immerse myself in it, which leaves me frustrated especially how lauded the album was at the release. Maybe if I hear some of the songs live I'll change my mind, but the last time I saw TRoB it went pretty poorly so I don't have much hope about this in a post Corona world lol.

No. 150801

I am glad there is more of us. I remember when I first heard Thy Catafalque, I was in high school sitting in the hall with nobody around, I clicked Rengeteg which was recommended on youtube, I was blown away by that first song and I was so angry at myself for not having heard it sooner. And then a friend came along so I had to talk to him instead of listening to the rest of the album, I was really pissed. Good times

No. 151107

Thanks for the rec. I feel the same way about Guðveiki's vocals as you do about Akhlys. Granted I'm still relatively new to metal so it might just be our own journey through the genre differing. Don't mean to sound offensive but are you Gen X/Millennial by any chance? That might have something to do w/ our different likes in vocals. I'll keep listening to this though and I appreciate the label recommendation as well!

To stay on-topic, been really enjoying Churchburn lately. Dave Suzuki's guitar solo @ 4:22 took me completely off guard when I first listened to this and it turned me onto his work. I'm usually listening to metal for the drummer but this blew me out of the water.

No. 151118

Anons you gotta hear this guitar sound near the middle of the song. It's like weweewewewewewewewewewewew I love it
That was wonderful, the guitar solo is completely out of place but it works, anyway I don't think I am a millenial (I had to google) I was born in 1999, but I live in a place where american trends arrive 5 years later.

Yea you're right but it's still fun. Btw I wouldn't really call Absurd pure Black Metal. Very early Absurd is Garage Punk with growling, while later works are more pagan metal/rock with Black Metal influence.

Next up is an undisputed classic of the meloblack subgenre, Storm of the Light's Bane by Dissection. The lead singer may have been a deranged Satanist who was convicted as an accessory to the murder of a gay man and who later offed himself as part of a Satanic ritual, but this album still slaps!

Year late reply, but which album do you mean? Their last regular album came out in 2015. Their latest album is completely orchestral with Hansi's vocals. I haven't listened to it yet. I think it's probably still good but I prefer the metal sound and it's like 2 hours long.

I was walking outside, by an old abandoned church with broken windows, and somehow I felt that it looked just like the song I was listening to. It was so nice and I was eating chocolate with cookies too but anyway I really recommend rattenfaenger, it's the same members as drudkh and blood of kingu and precambrian etc etc. It sounds like blood of kingu, if blood of kingu was medieval and not sumerian. And I think the cover is kind of cute. Doggy priests

I didn't notice Frontierer released new music last month, it's so good, it's like they went to buy new instruments from outer space (and borrowed the laser pew pew gun from Car Bomb), but at the same time the way the sounds are layered makes it more easy to make out what's going on, it's more groovy; when listening to previous albums there was just so many sounds all the time that it all blended into noise. It sounds darker and more refined than the previous albums, I haven't listened to the entire album yet but I'd say they've gone beyond the label of mathcore this time and I like it very much. Sorry, I'm just writing an essay for no reason, I just really really like this music. And it's free to download on bandcamp.

Formerly all-female death doom. One of my all time faves that don’t get nearly enough attention imo.

I like it a lot! I'll probably need to hear the full album to better appreciate it, when "Twilight of the Gods" was first released I found it meh, but "Beyond the Red Mirror" ended being one of my favorite album of them, easily in the top 3. Also I can't believe how good Hansi's voice still is.
Blind Guardian is my former favorite band (I don't like them less, I just fell in love harder with another band) so seeing them here warms my heart, I feel despite their longevity and successes they are kinda underrated, I think they are very popular among the metal crowd (a lot of black metal people like them weirdly enough) but have zero mainstream recognition.
