    I think we would get along. I love that more subdued sound. Actually, I prefer it. There are a bunch of bands that are trying to emulate that sound, but Ghost and In Solitude are the only two that I really like. And I love In Solitude. I sold my In Solitude ticket at the last minute because the one friend I convinced to come with me backed out (not sure what your college buddies are like, but the only knock on most of my close friends is that their taste in music is narrow as fuck), and I still regret it. No doubt they'll never come to the West Coast again :loldog:

    I've tried and tried -- the heaviest bands I like are like... Morbid Angel, Opeth, At the Gates, etc. I can appreciate like the early, raw black metal bands, but beyond that, it's pretty much a crapshoot. One of my friends is really into stuff that's abrasive as fuck... Job for a Cowboy and the like. I can't get into that.

    just don't try to tell me the stuff I like isn't metal

    Not sure how much you guys follow labels, because I don't at all. But Metal Blade seems to have a lot of good, varied acts. Typically I've found new music by looking up who my favorite bands/artists liked, or through What.CD collages, but this is a new angle that seems alright.

    Kind of the same - I used to find new bands by reading their interviews in guitar world. I picked up my first Meshuggah cd after reading that Adam Jones from Tool was inspired by them. Also got to like some bands by hearing them as opening acts. I still have some weird CDs I picked up at shows- orange 9mm, will haven, downset.

    Internet has changed almost all of that though.

    No invites currently. But show me that you actually understand the concept of keeping a ratio on a torrance site, and I'll hook you up with one when I have a spare invite.

    Unless you just meant album lists, because I can do that

    I doubt you're the only metalcore fan, since it seems like it has a bigger following than tech death and stuff like that

    Outside of TMB, maybe. You guys seem to like all the same type of music. Megadeth, Opeth ect ect. I'm all for The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, Apostate, Mychildren Mybride, Machine Head ect ect.

    i don't think we necessarily all like the same stuff. personally i can't get into the brutal death metal that some people in here like

    do you know the band Across the Sun? they're from Portland. Portland has a decent-sized metalcore scene, but most of the bands are awful. i saw them live at some shithole theater downtown, and they were pretty good.

    I definitely slant toward prog metal, but it has nothing to do with the heaviness. I love super heavy stuff; I just loathe those bands with the "breakdowns."

    I lean the same way. It's really opened me up to all sorts of different music.

    I'm not into breakdowns, either, really

    That's good to hear. I mean, I don't really care what kind of ratio you keep, as long as you don't get banned from the site. I've invited too many people who couldn't control themselves, and got themselves banned in like 2 or 3 weeks. I just don't have any invites now. I'll pm you when I do.

    I prefer death metal as my genre of choice, but I like some metalcore when it is well done. I think Parkway Drive's most recent record was amazing and I listen to it all the time. I dunno, if it's heavy music and it's good, I'll listen to it. I hate people who eliminate entire genre's from their listening scope because of some media-generated genre tag.

    Bumping with some thoughts.

    I love metalcore. Just saying. Trivium will always be one of my favorites. They're the reason I listen to metal.

    Also, let's discuss best metal covers of non-metal songs. Or just best metal covers.

    All great. Here's some of my favorites:

    You can't really cover Queen, but I really like this one



    Possibly the GOAT



    Fuck Transformers, but this is awesome



    I fucking loved this entire album.



    This is just random awesome noise



    Don't dismiss it until you listen

    It's not automatically out for me if they scream the whole time; I do enjoy a little melody here and there though :blush:

    Sometimes I don't even care about the vocals at all if the music is really badass. I am a guitar player so I always notice music more than vocals right away. Some of my favorite bands, I don't even know the lyrics to the songs that well. I don't just like technical shredding stuff though. I really like badass drummers and bands that play together as a unit.

    Just tell me what you guys like; I will prob like it too

    Btbam's Colors is a great album to start with.

    Here's a sample:

    Yeah I really need to check out BTBAM because I've heard a lot of people say they're awesome. What song/album should I check out first? EDIT: And you answered before I could finish typing my post :thumb:

    I have listened to Mastodon and Opeth some. I haven't heard anything by Dillinger I could fuck with; it was just like sheer brutal noise from what I heard. What's a song you really like by them?

    And I haven't heard of Protest the Hero at all

    I get what you're talking about with Dillinger. These 3 are the ones I listen to most.





    The beginning of this one is pretty crazy, but don't give up on it.

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh. They don't really have what you would call "structure" but they're all unreal musicians and Tommy Giles Rodgers is one of my favorite vocalists of all time. He can just do so much. They can just do so much.

    you might like the band Riverside also. their vocals are hit and miss, but they have a trilogy of instrumental songs that's pretty awesome. Reality Dream I, II, and III
