Terms of Surrender has like 30 of the sickest riffs from the past 10 years
yes but they have constant vocals whereas this haiduk band does not.
also this song is really interesting
at some point i subbed to artisan era's youtube and ive found i really love pretty much everyone they sign.
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.
so then whats the best way to describe black fast, etc
thrash with harsh vocals and modern production, imo
Metal Archives lists them and Vektor as “progressive thrash” fwiw
when things are unclear just slap a "progressive" label on it
top 3 metal or metal adjacent bands youre ashamed you like. make it good, because my list is and burnttatertot will never let me live it down
Parkway Drive (through Ire)
As I Lay Dying (first 3 albums)
tough to think of a third because i keep it tr00, kvlt, and br00tal
Liked at the time or still listen to?
Princess Pang - Adventures in Poon Tang
1. dance gavin dance
3. doesnt matter, i already embarrassed myself
i have no idea how i sleep at night
I'm way too full of myself to have any shame in the tripe I listen to.
Currently listening to Madison and I don't care who knows.
#2 sounds familiar but not quite sure who they are. Definitely never heard of #1.
im currently listening to the 2019 Leprous album. google music describes them as a "progressive music" band.
not progressive rock, just progressive music
1 is a post hardcore is math rocky thing thats really lame but the guitar bits are kinda catchy so i cant help myself.
2. is a mid 00s mallcore thing that a younger but still very large odin grew fond of in the early days
the drums on this song from Leprous 2015 release are really fucking cool
go, man bun, go
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.
If we’re doing embarrassing stuff, I still listen to Kiss regularly. I like Polyphia.
personally I don’t think any of these are embarrassing
yeah it made a lot more sense after listening. drumming and vox are still top notch, but it sure is weird
Do you guys consider Kiss a heavy metal or hard rock band?
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
my two least favorite bands are kiss and motley crue
but really i only care about bands being labeled as "metal" or not metal when some poser who doesn't actually like metal is talking about it
I'm only concerned because if we have to move my metalness est. date from 1984 to 1980 I don't think my ego would survive.
hard rock might even be a stretch
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.
this is well said.
Bandcamp is waiving their share on album sales this Friday if you guys were thinking about buying stuff
also that Martin Mendez (Opeth bass player) album is out and it sounds like... Opeth
i dont know what i just watched but that one dudes guitar tone is very bad
this came out of nowhere. new Katatonia. their music is kind of cheesy and melodramatic but i love it
Katatonia guy can really sing
They had quite the run in the 90's
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).
My Dying Bride has a new album out as well, which I enjoyed. First half especially.
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.
