    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.

    Irrelevance in an irrelevant genre must make them especially inconsequential.

    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.

    Canada has some great death metal. Kataklysm, Decrepit Birth, Neuraxis are three of my favorites.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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)
