    yes but they have constant vocals whereas this haiduk band does not.


    also this song is really interesting

    We never did an album of the decade ranking in here, but I really think the latest Slugdge album might be my favorite. Definitely has had the most staying power for me over the past 2 years.

    I found a way to agree with both of these opinions
    but I disagreed with this.

    death metal is more than just harsh vocals. there’s a whole guitar tone (ex: HM2 pedal) and riff library unique to it. just like thrash, and just like black metal.

    tough to render this opinion, but I would go with:

    Mgla - With Hearts Towards None

    i have every note of this album memorized. it’s been the soundtrack to so many critical periods in my life. people prefer other Mgla albums, but nothing will top this record imo.

    that Slugdge album is phenomenal though.

    thrash with harsh vocals and modern production, imo

    Metal Archives lists them and Vektor as “progressive thrash” fwiw

    im currently listening to the 2019 Leprous album. google music describes them as a "progressive music" band.

    not progressive rock, just progressive music

    Yeah, I really liked the Leprous album before this one. This one is weird as shit, though, and not the weird I like. Kudos for going into a totally new direction, but yeah, not heavy in the slightest.

    Their drummer is the street drummer from Oslo who went viral when YouTube was just blowing up 10-15 years ago. He’s amazing.

    the best definition i've heard for something being "metal" is that you have to be able to draw a direct line from Black Sabbath to the band in question. I would say no for Kiss on those grounds

    Yeah, I don't know anybody who would call Kiss a metal band. They were among other hard rock bands in 1974 when they debuted, but certainly not from the Sabbath line.

    I could never get into Paradise Lost but I struggle with that side of doom metal just generally. Always preferred the stoner stuff with more pace (Electric Wizard).

    Sleep is the only one of the plodding, slow doom bands that I can really vibe with.

    Some of the newer death/doom bands are good though, and they have slow parts (Temple of Void, Hooded Menace).

    Love MDB! Most 90's Paradise Lost albums have a slew of uptempo tracks... for doom.

    thanks, I will check these out. I knew I must be missing something when Bloodbath asked their vocalist to replace Akerfeldt.
