Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

Any metal-heads in ZU? when I say metal, I am talking the WHOLE spectrum. Things that could barely be considered metal (Three Days Grace/Since October) to the heaviest screaming progressive stuff out there (Chelsea Grin/As They Sleep). I guess this would be general metal discussion. What's your favorite band? You like screaming with your metal? Can you scream? and just some other stuff about it. Trends, bands that suck, etc.

To kick things off, I guess I want to ask those questions I listed.
Band: close race. It's either The Devil Wears Prada, We Came as Romans, or War of Ages.
I LOVE SCREAMING IN MY MUSIC. I can scream myself, but I'm still developing it.

Anyways....

EDIT: I don't want a debate over "this is technically hardcore" or "thats metal core". YOU understand what I mean. It's one thing if someone says they like linkin park, which carries rap elements, but, at least in their older days, they maintained metal elements. Now if someone comes and starts talking about Lil' Wayne....that's different.

Hardcore punk is what I mostly listen to:

YouTube - Cryptic Slaughter - Nation of Hate

Example.

Linkin Park is my favorite band because they're so brutal and heavy.

This should absolutely be the official metal thread, very yes.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

Well considering no one else really bothered to make one...I guess it is.

My pet peeve with linkin park is you can have a really REALLY good song that combines the rap and metal, but then sometimes it just doesnt really seem to work, at least in my opinion.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

We've had lots of metal threads that are all just debates about what is metal and what isn't but no thread where people can just talk about metal and share what they are into or listening to at the moment and whatnot.

My favourite bands that fall under the "heavy" spectrum of metal, hardcore, etc are Isis, Converge, and The Bronx. Which runs the gamut of sludge, metalcore and hardcore.

I am a fan of harsh vocals, not necessarily screaming.

I wonder if this should/could be a punk thread as well

You might like Cryptic Slaughter then. Try the link in my previous reply.

As I said, I think that would fall under general metal, whereas "punk" may not always have metal. Anyways, it's the same thing with the "metal" and "hardcore" crap. We all know what we mean.

I gotta agree, it's not just screaming, but gravely vocals. Kinda like Avenged Sevenfold. I swear Afterlife is one of the best songs ever.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

I am mostly into Death metal but I lately I've been really loving Black.
YouTube - Beherit - Nocturnal Evil

Also a terrific song, despite poor video quality:
YouTube - Necrophagia - They Dwell Beneath

I listened to all manner of early hardcore when I was writing a paper on punk and hardcore. I don't dislike it, but it's not something I actively listen to. Fugazi is about as early as I get for bands in my punk/hardcore library.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

I've been listening to this one song by As They Sleep nonstop these past few days.

YouTube - As They Sleep - Oracle Of The Dead (NEW 2010)

You can get it free in a sampler that Solid State Records put on their facebook page. It has several other good songs on it too.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

Cryptic Slaughter absolutely destroys.

I am a metalhead if you didnt know it yet but i also like classic hardcore, crust etc. Manilla Road is my all time favorite band not because they released the best album ever but because they never released an album id rather lower than a 7/10 and id rate the average manilla road album in the 9/10 area. No other band manages to be of so consistent high quality imho.

Im listening to D.R.I. - Definition atm.

"is screaming in metal a white person thing? Like rap being black people's?"

That's what he said. I'm not saying I agree. While I don't listen to rap, I'm sure there are plenty of white rappers who do well besides eminem. And I know there are some really good screamers who are black (killswitch engage), but I did see his point that most screamers tend to be white...I may be wrong, but he did have a small element of truth. Maybe I need to branch out of my hardcore/grindcore tree, but most screamers seem to be white.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

I think I like things from all over metal. I only recently got out of listening to a lot of "core" music when I listened to some more of the more traditionally metallic stuff out there on tomcat_ha and eribear's recommendation. After listening to a lot of these bands, when I go back to most core music it seems pretty sterile to me. Also, listening to the Slaughter of the Soul album revealed to me that a lot metalcore bands I liked - whether they realized it or not - sounded like At the Gates clones.

I can still enjoy some of the bands though; Between the Buried and Me, Veil of Maya, and The Fall of Troy in particular. Some of my favorite albums of all time are the early The Fall of Troy albums, and they have a very corey edge to their sound.

as for the metal genre, I'm pretty new, but I have a lot of favorites already. The non-arrogantly technical A Celebration of Guilt was the first real metal album I got into. It sort of opened the doors to metal for me, and for that it will always be a favorite of mine, even if from time to time the layering of the vocals kind of irks me.

anyway. Lately I've been getting into thrash. Coroner's R.I.P. was more or less my gateway into legitimately thrashy thrash bands.

Actually black are seemingly the only people who are not really into metal. Metal is pretty much a global movement happening everywhere from chile to japan. While most famous bands are indeed either european or american because of the lack of resources in the other countries/areas there have been quite a few very notable bands coming from these less obvious countries.
There are also a lot of hispanics in the american metal scene.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

Well there's also Derrick Green, the current vocalist of Sepultura, and Benji Webbbe of Skindred. That I know of.

As for me, I'd say a good deal of what I listen to falls within traditional metal with bands like Iron Maiden and Megadeth still being among my favourites. I do dabble in some progressive metal like Dream Theatre though I think I probably need to branch out from there (Devin Townsend maybe?), and occasionally some power metal like Stratovarius and Blind Guardian.

What I like most out of newer metal acts however, is symphonic metal with bands like Within Temptation and Nightwish being among my favourites. I've also recently started venturing into death metal, particularly symphonic death metal, though I've yet to find a band I'd call myself an avid fan of. If anybody has any suggestions, they're welcome. XD

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

I love metal but not its scene.

Anyway, i like all sorts really. Death Metal is my favorite subgenre. I always found the heavy chugging riffs and the growling vocals with the gory lyrics to be very charming. Opeth takes so much from the progressive angle and puts it with some awesome growling (and clean) vocals for an interesting mix. Morbid Angel. Love. I also like stuff like Nevermore.

Re: Pretty effin metal in here, eh? - Official Metal/Punk Thread

I listen mostly to Death Metal and Thrash Metal, some grindcore as well. I don't like Black Metal much at all, and I can't stand godawful genres like pirate or viking metal.

Death Metal: Cannibal Corpse (half their stuff is not even worth listening to, but their album, 'The Bleeding' is outstanding IMO), Suffocation, Carcass, Hypocrisy, Dark Tranquility, In Flames, At the Gates, Napalm Death, and so many others!

Grindcore: Carcass (great band or greatest band?), Napalm Death

Thrash Metal: Mostly listen to Megadeth (their latest album, 'Endgame' is REALLY good) and old school Metallica (their old stuff is brilliant)

Some other random bands I like: Disarmonia Mundi (in particular, check out their first album, 'Nebularium'), PAIN, Disturbed, Meshugga, Architects.

Still gotta love rock bands like Led Zeppelin though, truly one of the most influential bands of all time. Oh, and I think Iron Maiden is really overrated.



Also OP, your taste in metal totally sucks.

if you don't mean the 80's thrash band Disturbed, I am thoroughly confused.
