I'm sick of /mu/ not being prog tolerant.
Progressive metal/rock/mathcore/jazz-esque thread nao.
Pic related, contender for AOTY
Eh, I may as well contribute since it's rare we get prog threads going, even if I really really don't like that shit that OP is on about
What's on your hype list? I'm personally gearing up for the new Chaos Divine early next year, although since the Human Connection is nearly my favourite metal album ever, I'm being a bit wary of disappointment. Single drops next month
Here's some really cool progressive black metal.
sup niggers. i'm into a lot of underground metal core bands. every time I die and norma jean are some of my favorites.
am trying to find more bands that are like them. mastodon has some tight shit. same with converge.
anyone got any references?
pic related is every time I dies newest album. it rips ass holes
Sorry I don't listen to whiny djent garbage, go listen to some actual prog you fuck.
>inb4 its thinking mans metal
>kiiiiiiill the riiiiiiiich
Almost fell out of my chair laughing when I heard that. Fuck this band.
I almost have to agree with you anon. your conventional Djent style music has been done before and redone too many times the same way.
there are some progressive metal bands that really break the difference between being original and actually progressive rather than rehashing the same chugs over the same fag ass arpeggio licks.
so in other words you're a nigger
anyone have anything similar to this?
or similar to this?
This might just be the greatest song I've ever heard.
but really even if wikipedia doesn't lable a band as something doesn't mean they don't have those elements in their songs.
people consider Led Zeppelin to be metal. and yet you and your dad still can't get along. srry anon.
I love that track. Also Heart, though it might be uncool to like the popular, catchy track
From the replies, it seemed like someone was calling Mastodon mathcore. surely that part wasn't hard to figure out? Which part do you not understand?
I compared calling mastodon 'mathcore' to calling The Mars Volta 'hard rock'
I'm not arguing that, at all. Re-read my post >>50359110
Claiming that they ARE hard rock is a bit silly when they are more prog than hard rock, even if they have a few elements of hard rock. Similar to calling Mastodon mathcore instead of sludge or progressive. It's misleading to call them 'mathcore' even if they are a sludge band with mathcore elements
I remember listening to de-loused and really hating it for whatever reason, but that was a few years ago. The song you posted was actually really good. Might have to listen to it again.
may be hard to get into. lets take cygnus...vismund cygnus as en example: probably one of my favourite songs from the band. the first dozen times when i listened to it i hated the beginning but the section after the 4 minute mark is what kept me listening to it and you get used to the weirder parts and appreciate the song for what it is as a whole. the way i see it now is that these songs need these weird parts because it makes what comes after so much better.
i really like them for not sounding anything like metal while still having a very modern and hard sound.
It was delayed just like the original Genesis reunion is delayed by Collins being crippled.
well I would say mastodon has enough elements to consider them math core. especially in their earlier albums. they just contain a lot of different 'progressive' sounds too. which obviously places them into the progressive genre.
idk that's what makes all these different genres so fucky, especially with metal. there are just too many sub genres and opinions to full label a band as one genre type.
Led Zeppelin is not a metal band though in any way. Black Sabbath was the first metal band all you fuck wits.
best thing I have found recently
never seen this talked about on /mu/. it's one of the greatest prog metal albums of all time
the only thing i can deduce from this album that could be jazz influenced is the fact that they modulate a lot such as in some jazz songs. otherwise, it's just prog metal with some math
There's something about this album that feels nostalgaic to me even though I haven't even bothered listening to it until a month ago.
It's so bizarre and strange but has some of the cheesiest, loveable riffs I've ever heard, it's like a 40s horror movie meets cheesy blackened thrash with iron maidenesque riffs. One moment it's a full blown orchestra of dark classical and random spoopy sounds and the next minute it turns into a delicious cheesefest.
yeah well from listening to it I can hear some mind blowing shit that is extremely progressive/ innovative even from just a black metals stand point.
like seriously I am as hipster as it fucking gets when it comes to metal and when I hear those spooky kick ass sounds right before it turns into Beethoven's love orchestra I can only ask myself wtf were they thinking
I read in an interview that the reason why most of their albums are so random is because the frontman really likes horror, and thinks the best way to invoke it is to be random and as non-linear.
Once you start to listen to that album it's not really that random to begin with, it just feels like a cheesy horror movie meets black metal. Even the orchestras sound like they could have been in a black and white horror film.
Arise has one of the coolest riffs ever, you know the one with tappy bits. Very Scale the Summit esque
there's nothing like tmv except more tmv.
check out zechs marquise though, it's omar's brother's band, it's instrumental prog with a jammy/jazzy vibe.
btw just discovered deantoni parks plays on You're Dead!
If you want TMV clones, there are plenty, just that none of them are anywhere near as good
There's still plenty of prog left in the instrumentation, it's just that the structures are more pop
u fkn wot m8?
