    Ok, how familiar are you with the scene and bands? I don't want to give you too common stuff you may know, or the obscure shit if you're not familiar with the more common ones. Do you prefer it to be more melodic, thrashier, or just similar death/thrash?

    These guys took a lot of shit for being a clone band. This is the re-issue, the original of this track isn't on youtube for whatever reason, the original production is shit but I prefer it because it was what I was use to in the 90's.

    Not sure why the album artwork is for another band.

    Not super familiar. Surface level at best. Closest modern band that is clearly influenced by them that has stuck is Darkest Hour.

    Done feeding my piehole, now just waiting for my ambien to kick in.

    Slaughter Of The Soul vocalist has played in many bands, some nearly as legendary as ATG like Crown Of Thorns (The Crown).

    These guys got in a bit of trouble for using the artwork they did for the album. Bonus points if someone recognizes which album it's from.

    portlandspartan here are some more modern melodic death metal albums that I would check out. these probably have cleaner production but should scratch the itch:

    Kalmah - The Black Waltz
    Dawn of Disease - Ascension Gate
    Dark Tranquillity - Fiction
    Insomnium - Above The Weeping World

    And not modern, but you should definitely look at Eucharist’s 1997 album Mirrorworld.

    Jim Rome dedicated an entire segment to metal today because this PGA dude Viktor Hovland has apparently been driving from event to event while chugging Red Bull and listening to metal. I was :rockin: in my work truck because it came out of nowhere

    "now if you know anything at all about metal, then you know that no style of music has got more subgenres"

    bands mentioned: Electric Wizard, Sleep, Sabbath, Earthless (can someone ID that song?), High on Fire, Zayo (? metalcore band), Melvins, Deftones, DARKTHRONE, Norma Jean

    Rome is pretty clearly a metal guy based on the intros he plays (or at least someone working for him is) but I definitely wasn't expecting the biggest or second-biggest syndicated sports talk guy to drop a fucking Darkthrone reference

    Sorry forgot to follow this up. I thought this was hilarious. This is a from a band I like called Shame. They’re heavy but I don’t think it fits the thread preferences. Anyhow enjoy.

    Do you guys like Zeppelin? Reading their bio and revisiting their catalog now and realizing how much of a debt modern metal owes to them. Seems like them and Sabbath were the blueprint

    I think Sabbath was the first metal band but I also really like Zeppelin.

    Zeppelin has some heavier hard rock riffs, but Sabbath’s use of the tri-tone and Iommi’s writing are what created the defining characteristics of metal.

    I was thinking about Zeppeln’s embracement of the occult, as well as how they had mostly male fans (minus groupies) and liked to use military imagery/martial style music

    Besides those 2, who/what are considered the progenitors of metal — punk?

    Definitely like Zeppelin. I don’t think anyone considers them a metal band, Sabbath generally gets that distinction. But they were incredibly influential.

    I doubt you'd find many metal bands of the 80s and 90s that weren't influenced by Zeppelin, but I don't know that I'd say that metal owes a debt to them. The progression of metal really draws a pretty clear line from Sabbath.

    Also, remember metal is not always balls to the wall. Zeppelin always had these pretty acoustic passages that seem a big influence on someone like Randy Rhoads

    Edit: For clarification, I took this to mean influential bands that weren’t metal but influenced the early metal bands. So not necessarily the founding metal bands.

    Off the top of my head:

    The MC5
    The Kinks
    The Beatles
    Little Richard
    Elvis
    Cream
    Buddy Rich
    Hendrix
    Steppenwolf
    Vanilla Fudge
    ZZ Top
    Deep Purple

    There are a ton. Guess it depends how far back you want to go and how broad you want to be.

    Read this book if you haven’t; it’s giving me a better perspective on Zeppelin. Seems to be one of the great music biography books too

    What was metal about the Beatles? “I Want You/She’s So Heavy”?
