    I wouldn't call the Beatles a metal band obviously, but I do think they had a big influence.

    I wouldn’t say there was anything necessarily “metal” about either. But I would definitely think they were influential on the groups that established the genre, so would qualify as progenitors.

    Pretty good dividing line between all harsh vocals, mixed, and all melodic. I like all but the former has to come in smaller doses for me

    Definitely a strong chance. I’ve often seen Master of Reality listed as the classic stoner album

    Just returned from the dog park. On the outskirts of the fenced park is a small wooded area about an acre or two in size and has paved pathways through it. There was a teen there in a Children Of Bodom t-shirt trying to take selfies like he's in the middle of the forest, holding his phone at an angle so you see trees but not the paved path in which he came in or the main road just feet away. I wanted to clown him but decided not to discourage him or what he's doing. I'm getting soft in my old age.

    I'd been meaning to listen to this after seeing someone make a similar comment I guess on a youtube video or something, so thanks, reminds of the first time I heard Tomorrow Never Knows by them and being surprised as fuck it was a Beatles song

    Martin Birch died. Absolutely legendary producing CV.

    Did 9 Maiden albums, 2 Black Sabbath albums, 2 Deep Purple albums, and just a ton of other stuff. Retired at 42 after "Fear of the Dark".

    I missed out on the progenitors of metal/punk discussion. For me it's Sabbath, Deep Purple, and The Kinks.

    idk man I loved Uada’s first two albums but I am not feeling either of these new tracks. I passed on the pre-order.

    Recommendations for more symphonic/technical bands or albums like Fleshgod Apocalypse's last two Albums, Veleno and King. The less cleans the better.

    Never really got into Lamb of God but I've always loved this song. Randy Blythe sounds great even though I'm pretty sure there is some kind of filter on his voice

    new Audn track from the upcoming album.

    Icelandic black metal, less dissonant and more 'orthodox' (for lack of a better word) than some of their peers.

    this track absolutely slays, really high quality USBM with Native American/Western lyrical content.

    ‘A Celebration Of Guilt’ by Arsis is a classic of the genre and should fit the bill.

    Currently enjoying the new Cytotoxin album, but I'm kind of tired of Unique Leader trying to make all their bands sound alike with the the same shitty ultra processed clean production job that is best suited for metalcore bands.

    In case you need further proof that slam is a joke of a genre.

    When you think about it what other outcome could there have been? It's not like they have the skill set to cover competent bands.

    There are better Lovecraft-focused bands. Sulphur Aeon, for example.

    also sulphur aeon is too slow and they have far too many truly terrible vocal sections. growls are fine, but the spoken and shouted parts are just bad.
