SURF NICURAGUA - what an ep. Ignorance was a great album as well

I have only quickly scanned through this thread, I could go bananas with this thread. Metal has been a huge part of my life

Mr Mona, you asked where someone heard Master of Puppets live, how about "Orion" (and the rest of the album) played at Castle Donington, spiritual home of metal in the UK (Download '06)

Iron Maiden are the legends for me, huge respect for Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.

Go Gama Bomb the Irish thrashers!

Here's a question: I love folks like Protest the Hero, Oh Sleeper, Misery Signals, My Bitter End, and other folks who manage to do the prog/hardcore/metal thing. Does anybody have recommendations of bands I might not have heard of who do similar things? I'm looking for someone who's harder than Dream Theater (though they're awesome), newer than Metallica (though they're awesome as well) and slightly more accessible than Dillinger or Between the Buried and Me (though they, too, are awesome). My ideal band is aggressive, alternates between brutality and really melodic stuff, and changes up the riffs constantly so you never get bored.

What have you got?

I would check out Johnny Truant. I have their "repurcussions of a badly planned suicide" mini album. Not as full on as Dillinger (to be honest they only work for me live, a fantastic experience especially when, as support for System Of A Down in the UK, they stunned the audience into stunned silence. Glorious)

James, have you ever checked out SiKth? They are a bit too odd for my tastes, but they'll fit your description quite well.

Hey, they're good! I just watched the videos for "The Bloodening" and "Death Rides," and they're exactly what I like in music videos - no goofy actors, just the band rocking out hard in a cool location. Thanks for the tip!

Recently, the juggernaut of awesomeness that is This Is Menace borrowed SiKth vocalist Mikee Goodman, resulting in this little masterpiece. Enjoy!

What?!! no Bullet for my Valentine?

they sound like a hardcore version of IRON MAIDEN.

or how about As I Lay Dying? I like them too.

There's lots of really good newer metal out there.

Still, I'm a sucker for psychdelic-space metal which nobody does right anymore.

Like Magma (a disturbing 10 piece german psychedelic metal band that sang in their own language)or of course Lemmy Kilmster's first band Hawkwind. I love Hawkwind (yes it was named after the Michael Moorcook character, and yes, Micheal often read his poetry over their space-metal soundscapes). Atomic Rooster was pretty good for that type of stuff too. Like Black Sabbath in space (or rather further in space)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules Subscriber

Hey Tim-

A friend of mine just gave me a burn of some Atomic Rooster, Radio Birdman, and Budgie tunes. Called the disc 'the chicken coop'. Not a good mix tape, because all three bands cover different veins of rock but there's some great punk/funk/space rock coming from those bands. I only knew Budgie from Breadfan. That cd has stayed in the car for several months on heavy rotation.

Dont know about Bullet for My Valentine, gonna have to look that up. Thanks!

As I Lay Dying is pretty awesome, and had a lot of influence on my own music, though I still feel like they did their best work on the first half of their first album. (For my money, Coheed and Cambria are the same way - "Second Stage Turbine Blade" and "In Keeping the Secrets of Silent Earth 3" are both INCREDIBLE Maiden-esque riffage, and they've been headed steadily downhill ever since.)

I've got "The Poison" by Bullet for my Valentine, and while I listened to it relentlessly for a bit, it eventually started to feel a little generic, particularly the lyrics and the recording style. That said, I haven't listened to the new album yet, so I'll have to check it out.... For British screamo, I still think you can't beat Funeral For A Friend's "7 Ways to Scream Your Name" and "Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation."

Also, if you're into stuff like that, allow me to suggest Oh Sleeper, Protest the Hero, Misery Signals, Saosin's "Translating the Name" EP, and Thrice's "The Illusion of Saftey" and "The Artist in the Ambulance"... that's a pretty good cross section of all my favorite bands that scream. :)

Let it be noted that I never said Saosin was metal - merely that it hard screaming (which they haven't done since the original singer left and joined Circa Survive after that album). I still maintain that, while not metal, their first EP, "Translating the Name," is one of the choicest albums I own... listen to the drums on "Lost Symphonies" and tell me that's not killer. Apparently the drummer they found to record that album was never part of the band - he was a drum tech for Slayer and offered to sit in. Crazy, no?

Lost Symphonies link - sound quality's meh, but you see what I'm talking about.

OK, I will grant you that their first album was pretty killer (after Cove joined, they started to... not be as good. We'll just leave it at that).

Drum tech for Slayer, eh? Huh.

Agreed 100%. The new stuff just doesn't have any edge to it... overproduced to the max, no screaming, less inspired drumming.

And no offense taken - I'm just excited somebody's still talking about metal and hardcore (or the lack thereof) on these boards. :)

I honestly think we are still waiting for the finished article from Bullet. They use three vocalists (main and two supporting, sharing the screamy bits). Saw them at Reading a couple of years ago and for the first 3-4 tracks I thought they were excellent but it then got samey. But hey, they are touring this autumn and bringing Lacuna Coil, Bleeding Through and Black Tide as support to my city so they're allright in my book

I am not prepared to give Funeral the time of day after they massacred Damage Inc for a Metallica tribute cd by Kerrang magazine.

The thing about Funeral For a Friend is that they started out awesome and have been on a steady downhill trend ever since. Those first two discs knocked my socks off when they came out, but "Hours" felt like they were mailing it in, and the most recent one doesn't even have screaming, let alone furious riffs. I'm not sure if there were some lineup changes or if they just got bored, but the new sound isn't for me. Depending on when they did the 'Tallica tribute, I'm not surprised it was lame. That said, if you want to see some truly hilarious Metallica covers, you should look up the TV tribute special they did a few years back. When Sum41 does the best cover of the night, you know you're in trouble. :) Seriously - I can't imagine what Metallica must have thought while sitting there watching Avril Lavigne play "Fuel."

Misery Signals is still badass - I just got their brand new disc, and it's quality. Not quite as catchy as "Mirrors" right out of the box (which was also great), but also harder to get tired of for the same reason.

Anyone have a scouting report on David Ellefson's post-Megadeth band "Avian"?

I've never heard anything about them, and I must admit a certain curiosity.

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Yep, he was featured in a "Giants in the Earth" column way back in Dragon #28, along with Welleran from Lord Dunsany's "The Sword of Welleran" (which is utterly brilliant).

Whats Sepultura up to these days? They still together?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Sort of. They are doing their thing with a new vocalist. In my opinion, the new guy (can't remember his name right now) is a much, much better frontman, as well as a better singer than Max Cavalera was - however, the new songs just aren't as good as the old stuff.

Of course, Max's new band Soulfly isn't all that great either (though their newest album Dark ages is actually pretty darn good). In short, this is not like the Metallica/Mustaine split that gave us two great bands - instead, the Sepultura split gave us two weaker outfits.

I think Funeral either took inspiration from Lost Prophets or the other way round. Decent debuts and then decend into bland s++*e. As for Metallica covers, I will check them out. One Metallica covers story is at work a colleague was listening to a woman called something Silvas, can't remember the full name. On comes her rendition of 'Nothing Else Matters' which made me chuckle. Later in the day I was on the phone with our support guys and it was playing in the background. From nowhere the guy on the other end of the line just said that's the worst Metallica cover he had ever heard which made me chuckle a lot more

Funeral's effort was worse mind.

Seriously... I know they actually toured together for a while as well. I thought the first Lost Prophets disc was pretty awesome (Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja blew my little highschool mind the first time I heard it), and the second one actually had some good stuff on it as well, but then they just face-planted, for no apparent reason.

Man, what a great thread, awesome bands all ... but I have to admit, for a bunch o' thrashers I can't figure out why so little love for Pantera in this thread?

Have we all forgotten, or maybe don't even know, about the greatness that were the riffs produced by guitar god Dimebag Darrell (R.I.P)?

Also I highly recommend Phil Anselmo's follow-up band Down.

Oh, and Sepultura needs some love here too, particularly their Chaos A.D LP.

My drummer has a Manowar costume left over from Halloween, and I think one of these days he's going to wear it to a show. Nothing says metal like wicked double-bass in a horned Viking helmet.

That is what is pissing me off with the Lost Prophets, the first album was ace - Shinobi... was one of the best songs I heard that year.

Getting back to bands who massacre other bands classic tunes. Anybody know who Sign are? They have DESTROYED Maiden's Run To The Hills. They deserve a kicking

It's not even that they tried to go ballad, they tried to copy themselves from back in the day and failed to capture it. Miserably. They have lost the angst they had and gotten too commercial. I turn off the radio every time I hear it.

Andoran

I like Coheed and Cambria's albums a lot, though I think No World for Tomorrow could have had some more oomph to it. My personal favorite is Good Apollo, so I'm gonna have to disagree about the point of decline.

As far as actual metal goes, I like me some Shadows Fall, so I suggest you try them, starting with The War Within. Rather thrashy in style. You might already know them if you played Guitar Hero 2 or 3(can't remember which one), as it has 'The Light That Blinds', the first track off of War Within.

Also, check out Sea of Treachery, as they not only alternate between brutal and melodic music, but the singer alters his vocals from melodic to monster in the songs.

As far as different stuff, I'm into just about anything that isn't most rap, most country, and "emo" and screamo. Everything else is fair game, though I do prefer when my vocalists actually sing. All screaming all the time is pretty much a no win for me.

>>>Absolutely must mention this: DragonForce's new album just came out recently. Definitely worth a look, especially as the first song is like a condensed version of their previous work into one song. Also, it has a song called 'Strike of the Ninja'. Now how is that not awesome?


Erik Mona wrote:

I am member of the Anthrax fanclub and we have been keeping an eye on what is coming from Metallica. Have to agree I don't like the single, Cyanide and My Apocalypse are better (the latter has a hint of early Slayer to it) but I haven't heard anything that makes me confident of a real Thrash return to form. I was hoping for an epic faceoff between Anthrax and Metallica but I can't see the new Anthrax album coming out this year.

In my opinion, Metallica hasn't been good since Kill 'Em All. That was almost five years before I was BORN. Bunch of sellouts...

And just for the record, I am NOT a fan of DragonForce. They are living proof that there is such a thing as being TOO intense. I tend to liken listening to DragonForce to sticking your head in a bucket and whacking it with a baseball bat, chugging a bottle of whiskey, and then smashing your face into a brick wall.

I appreciate the sentiment, but anyone who discounts Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and Garage Days has clearly fallen off the deep end.

I add in 'And Justice for All' to that list although when you compare that to MOP, RTL and GD it's like a different band wrote it. AJFA is one of my all-time favorite anger albums.

Suspicion Is Your Name
Your Honesty to Blame
Put Dignity to Shame
Dishonor

and
Dear Mother
Dear Father
Hidden in Your World You've Made for Me
I'm Seething
I'm Bleeding
Ripping Wounds in Me That Never Heal
Undying Spite I Feel for You
Living out this Hell You Always Knew.

I like the anger in that album, not that the others don't have it too but it just seems more......focused? Can't think of a good word for it.

Qadira

Basically the 'Black' album was the beginning of the end. To me at least.

Andoran

It's the last one I have.
It's good fun though. They got a song 'bout warwoofs.

I actually like both Load and Reload better than ...And justice for all. Not only does the Justice production job annoy the hell out of me; I also don't like any of the songs on it ("The shortest straw" being the best of a very weak bunch). Hopefully the new album will be better than St. Anger. I'll probably buy it anyway...


Well,

I've been listening to Metallica's "Death Magnetic" pretty much non-stop since I got it yesterday. This album blows me away.

I've been a fan since '84. I followed them through their low period with Load and Reload, and I saw signs of their returning to the edginess they once had with St. Anger, but I never, never thought in a million years they would release something like this.

Death Magnetic has all the rage and speed of albums like Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets. In fact, I submit that Death magnetic is the best thing they've put out since Puppets.

Totally amazing album.

I saw Metallica with Metal Church on the Master of Puppets tour in 1986. It it still my favorite show. Only two hundred people turned up. It was like having them play at a bar.

It made up for driving six hours that spring to see Ozzy/Metallica and having Oz cancel because of voice problems.

It would have been nice to see Burton play though. He died between the two shows.

Ha! I went to that Ozzy/Metallica concert around the time I was graduating from High School. Bragging rights for getting to see old Cliff pound on the bass before the bus accident [RIP]. Great concert!

I was lucky enough to see Cliff play in june '86 on the tour in support of Ozzy. The show was amazing. They completely rocked the house. The sister of an old friend actually gave Cliff a massage after the show.

I'm going to have to put another prop in for Death Magnetic - I was a bit leary going in; but man - I think they found their anger again.

There are some seriously HEAVY riffs on this album, and you can definitely hear some classic influences in the sound like Motorhead and Danzig among others.

... and I can't be the only person inspired to find a monster for the line "Hunt you down without mercy, hunt you down all nightmare long".

Cheliax

Ride The Lightning is definitely my favourite Metallica with Justice For All coming in second. But, I do have to say the new album is not bad. It's almost pretty good. It's a heck of an improvement from Load/Re-Load and St. Anger.

As for metal aw how come no one's mentioned Cannibal Corpse?

"It's not over I came back I brought my axe!"

One of the worst yet best metal bands.
