I haven't heard the rest of it, but I fucking LOVE Cirice.
From the Pinnacle to the Pit is even better
I've probably listened to From the Pinnacle to the Pit like 20 times
burnttatertot Ghost's show at the Roseland in October costs $30/ticket
fuckin' rock stars
Well it's $23 plus fees
Papa needs his $$$
still can't name a single song
don't be that guy
Going to see btbam and aal again in a few weeks. I'm pretty excited like always.
Holy shit it's Skeletor on vocals.
Listened to the entire song, can't get into them for some reason.
the main guy was also in a death metal band called Repugnant
The Swedish one? Gives him some street cred for sure.
Saw Animals as Leaders a few nights ago. Twas spectacular despite the audience being full of shitbrains. Tosin. Abasi.
Oh, and Children of Bodom's upcoming album looks like it'll suck just as much as Halo of Blood.
It's been quite some time since COB was relevant.
I think tonights bedtime band is gonna be Tackleberry.
Saw them last Saturday in Jacksonville. Incredible.
Crowd sucked though.
Irrelevance in an irrelevant genre must make them especially inconsequential.
Kataklysm coming to town in November with Belphegor. I'm gonna buy tickets.
Did they play Bohemian Rhapsody that night?
Your thoughts on both bands?
Love both old and new Kataklysm, definitely one of the better Canadian bands. I own the umpteen Belphegor albums including the 90's OOP Last Episode stuff, don't break them out much as that Behemoth/Belphegor sound starts to rub me wrong after about 5 or 6 tracks.
No, and I'm glad they didn't. Would way rather hear White Walls.
Canada has some great death metal. Kataklysm, Decrepit Birth, Neuraxis are three of my favorites.
But all of their shows end with White Walls.
Loved Neuraxis since their Neoblast days. They've done pretty well for themselves, unlike another mid 90's Quebec band Quo Vadis who fizzled out quickly.
Agreed, but I'd still rather hear that than Bohemian Rhapsody.
Joe_Pesci - great interview with a nameless ghoul in guitar world:
So I thought Job For A Cowboy played awful, awful deathcore. I stumbled across their latest release (2014's Sun Eater), and wow. Awesomely crafted technical death metal with a ton of atmosphere and great bass work. Reminds me a lot of Atheist or Gorguts. Maybe even Cynic.
They might be one of the only bands I've ever seen evolve into a less commercial direction. This album is way better than anything they've ever released, and way more extreme. Awesome and refreshing to see a band go this route.
Cover art is sick too.
yeah, Sun Eater was excellent.
Cattle Decapitation's new album is streaming here (not sure if (m)any here like them or not):
Giving it my first listen through, and it's enjoyable. I way prefer proggy stuff, but this has enough going on to keep my attention. Album is released on the 7th.
one of my friends, who doesn't listen to metal at all, just asked me if i wanted to see Slipknot with him in October. i'm guessing he listens to them for like "pump up music" when he lifts. he thinks this is what i'm into when i say that i like metal.
It's really weird when people who are not familiar with metal at all think that Slipknot and/or Marilyn Manson are like the heaviest bands ever.
*at a bar*
"hey joe_pesci, i put a song on the jukebox for you"
"cool, what is it?"
That video posted a while back of their drummer was one of the better displays of speed I've ever seen.
What would you guys play for someone to show them that there are heavier bands? For me, heavier generally means more abrasive or dissonant.
If we're keeping it to bands whose heaviness I actually still enjoy, I'd probably play Discordance Axis. I think grindcore is the most abrasive genre.
obviously i appreciate that my friend wants to go to a metal concert with me
just... it's not going to be slipknot. i'm going to ghost the night before the slipknot concert and he said he wasn't interested
Meshuggah, to me, sounds like the heaviest band.
but it's a great song.........
probably something like Bleak by Opeth or Blinded by Fear by At the Gates
i think Gentle Time by Isis is about the heaviest song i've ever heard, so maybe that
i've just heard it so many times that it has transcended good or bad
it's in the same tier for me as Iron Man
Good call on ISIS. I really like "Sea Of Red" also.
So the hair metal thread recently started had me coming to the realization that I'm really not into most of the classic 80s metal out there. I mean, I fucking love Maiden, but it pretty much starts and stops with them for me, when discussing bands of that grouping. I respect what all those guys did for the genre, and how they influenced many of the later bands that I have come to love, but I'm just not into that sound or aesthetic at all.
For clarification purposes, I do not consider 80s Slayer, Pantera, Metallica or any of the thrash bands to be of this ilk. Completely different, stylistically.
Who are you talking about as 80s metal bands you don't like?
Warrant, Poison, Accept, Winger, Guns N Roses (yes, I know), etc etc
I don't really think of those guys as 80s metal (other than Accept). I think of 80s metal as more Ozzy, Dio, Judas Priest, Exodus, WASP, Anthrax... stuff like that.
I classify most of the bands you listed as hair bands.
Amazingly, that wasn't even their drummer. That was just some dude at a music conservatory in Europe somewhere.
those are mostly bands that metalheads made fun of. Poison is total garbage.
GnR is hella overrated but Appetite for Destruction is great
You were listening to the wrong Warrant & Poison back then.
Lots of great 80's non-thrash albums got overlooked because of Winger, Accept, etc. First track off this album is one of my favorite from the 80's.
And of course, two of the greatest non-thrash 80's full lengths evah! (1985/1986)
