Metal general- riffs edition
old thread: >>61532926
I got you senpai. Listen to GALMET (melodeath).
both are important but honestly if there's no riffs i'll just listen to the album once, think "this is good" and then never listen to it again
i'll maybe think i should listen to it again but i never will
and yea, if you just want atmosphere you can do better than metal desu
Got my ticket for last week.
Anyone else going?
How do you think it'll be? Do any of these bands still have "it" live?
the list looks like its a combination of stuff that was discussed a lot at some point and time. half of that stuff isn't discussed often now now but was discussed 1-3 years ago and left its mark on /metal/ culture.
>And how is Blood Stain Child not a meme
/mu/ metalfags and BSC have a history dating back to when Mozaiq dropped back in 2007 senpai
All of those albums have been popular here either now or at some point in the past.
>how is Blood Stain Child not a meme
You have to be here for a while to understand.,
Surgical Steel was fucking great, but if you're really into the grindier carcass you might not like it.
Repentless was, well, okay. Slayer tends to generally put out okay albums. Never really terrible, but never better than good or okay. I did like the title track and it's video.
>Slayer tends to generally put out okay albums. Never really terrible, but never better than good or okay.
I assume you're talking about post-'90 Slayer.
Hell Awaits and Reign in Blood are top-tier thrash.
I almost never trust reviews over 90 or under 10. Unless I know the reviewer already (there's a few good ones on M-A who maintain a reasonable scale).
By far the biggest problem with that site is tryhard wannabe comedians who lather their "critiques" with shitty jokes, tired metaphors, and grating hyperbole/profanity. OzzyApu and BastardHead come to mind.
I thought OzzyApu was alright from the reviews I've read.
But yeah the worst reviewers are those that imitate UltraBoris and try to bash stuff with bad jokes and the like.
I dunno; I don't see anything inherently
wrong with mostly giving out high scores. I don't think it's fair to expect people to review stuff they find mediocre.
Well I may be biased due to his (Apu's) utterly shit taste, but he just comes off as the kind of guy no one liked in middle/high school despite constant attempts at humour. And yeah, UltraBoris is kept on the Archives mostly for historical value. He's a very limited reviewer and completely drops the ball when faced with anything other than thrash or 70s/80s metal.
>I don't think it's fair to expect people to review stuff they find mediocre.
True, there's some inevitable bias. Most people aren't going to feel inspired to write a 70% review, or whatever "average" is on that site.
well now hold on now
godflesh, panopticon, Portal and electric wizard are rad
burzum peste noire and maybe even meme spell OMG are acceptable
and why didn't somebody put SUN BAT HER in there
Any album with a score over 95% is guaranteed great.
Examples I've seen:
Judas Priest- Stained Class
Fates Warning- The Spectre Within
Satan- Court in the Act
Entombed- Left Hand Path
>a years old meme is getting a bunch of (you)s
post metal for this feel
I actually haven't heard much Testament. So no, sorry m8. I was referring mainly to Slayer/Carcass. SS is buttmetal and didn't interest me at all. But I expected as much from bands which released their last great album in the fucking 80s.
Pic related just came in the mail
For once, I'll be the guy putting the lyrics up on DarkLyrics
>drafting up my plot to my series of short stories
>First story follows the MC (Cole) leading an unsuccessful resistance against an alien race hell bent on destroying Earth. THe Moon is crashed into the Earth and humanity is wiped out, Cole survives because he is saved by an alien race
>Cole, who is cursed with immortality because of the Alien tech messing with his DNA, searches the Universe for a way to time travel back. He tries to revive his best friend based on a tooth he has, but it creates an elditch monstrosity, he is forced to kill, making him the only human EVER.
>PUNISHED Cole is now working as an illegal weapons dealer, while training and meditating. Gets asked by a black market guy to save this alien dude's daughter from space niggers. He saves her and becomes leader of their army.
>400 years later
>Cole has now united multiple solar systems and leads the largest army of all time. But the alien race that wiped out Earth has returned, millions of times stronger than imagined. Cole leads an assault on the race's homeplanet, a giant metal cube. The assault fails and Cole fights his way to the center.
>Turns out the universe is just a simulation
>The core is the connection between the simulated universe and reality
>realizing that all is lost, he jumps into the data stream in the core
>He causes the universe to reset, making it a real universe
>he becomes god a remakes huamnity in his image
Anyone got any albums or songs that fit these kind of themes?
i don't know why but i'm getting some augury/mithras vibes from this. maybe thergothon too.
Is there a song on here that's not pretentious drivel? The brother, Ron, released 3 new fantastic Watchtower songs that blow this thing out of the water. I guess Bobby needed the cash, but man what a waste of talent.
Anyone have any earplug recommendations?
I'm gonna see 4 shows within 2 weeks, and am a little worried about my ears exploding. I never wore earplugs to a show, but i'm a little anxious thinking about the shows. The last few I went to I was able to get to the front and looked around at the people around me, of which everyone was wearing ear plugs. I have only sustained like a day of ringing max after a concert, but I kinda don't wanna push my luck anymore.
You should always, always have earplugs.
The best are probably custom stuff, but if you want something cheap that's not too bad you can get something like the Sonic Defender EP4s or the Etymotic Research ER20s.
>show my old band mate isengard
>"where's the solos????"
>show him falkenback
>"where are the solos man??"
>show him emperor
>"where are the solos man???'
solos are just a short burst of guitar masturbating, and unless melodic, are ultimately overshadowed or forgettable compared to the riffs
I've seen some interviews and live perfomances and I believe she does listen to different kinds of music. Her father likes classic rock and most of her former band mates were into rock and metal even by the looks of them. She had pretty heavy show with def leppard. That's a pity that she doesn't even have control over her music or band members. It always saddens me with al popular musicians.
What do you guys think of them? Anything similar to this?
Anybody going to any of these? I lost all hope when they didn't announce an stl date on the bodom tour, but now it's a 90 minute set at stl.
y'all wanna talk about this masterpiece?
>texting a girl every day after going on a date
this is where you went wrong
now back to metal, what did you guys think of the new sikth?
What are some more metal bands with historical roleplaying like Twilight Force?
It's surprisingly good, expected them to have lost what made them sikth especially with the first teaser they released but this is way better than I expected. I hope they release more stuff.
Meliora, followed by Night Creeper. The singing on Night Creeper really hold me back from enjoying it.
I figure Akuma no Uta and Heavy Rocks (both by Boris) were pretty jam-like.
I really can't see the preference for Clutch. Psychic Warfare just felt embarrassing to listen to. Ghost is "OO SPOOPY DEVIL ROCK" and Clutch is "YEAH BROTHER HARDCORE 4 LYF ROCK." I'd rather pick the costumes.
wtf man you just stole my post. you should be ashamed.
Is this metal in any way? I really like the guitar sound on songs like Shoujo A, Patchwork, and Stupid.
I'm admittedly not familiar with them, but most of what I've heard has not sounded particular interesting to me. I think it's probably just they don't really sound sonically that Japanese and follow western trends to closely for my taste. For example, you can compare them to a lot of 90s jrock bands or some contemporaries and the style is pretty different.
But I said "vapid and gimmicky." In the context, gimmicky is bad because I'm implying that there's nothing to their music other than the costume stuff. Vapid is pretty much a criticism in nearly all possible contexts. Obviously this is all subjective, but I think Ghost is terrible because there is almost nothing to their music. They don't write good riffs or solos. They do generic verse-chorus with very little worthwhile musically (and they aren't even that catchy imo).
haven't seen as many collages in this general lately
maybe that's just me tho
Niice. What'd you think of the album? The DsO influence is so fucking beautifully and tastefully displayed, it gives me a boner.
MUERTE AL CRISTO BLANCO !!
I'm the guy who think Ghost sucks, but it basically is. I mean you could say something like more simple songs = more vapid, but I think one good riff has far, far more worth than a complicated song full of half-baked ideas.
+Motorhead, summoning, entombed also galneryus i guess
if it isn't subjective then being vapid isn't a bad thing. for example earth 2 might be objectively vapid in one sense of the word, yet a lot of people will cite it as a masterpiece and among their favourite albums
DT isn't really that complicated most of the time desu. A lot of the time it's just filler chords and chugging. I'd honestly like more if they really did just wank all of the time.
desu i liked the first a lot better but i'd have to listen to both again
hard to explain what but that album was just missing ~something~ that the first one had
idk if i picked up on the dso influence
also your chart has some good shit but idk if i can think of anything more embarrassing than a band being named manbearpig
first off, how did you find that Cold Night for Alligators album, i literally just put it on the database
second of all, you could have made so many criticisms of that mechina album that were correct and you chose ones that don't make sense. they do relate the symphonics and cyber elements to the chugs and that's why they're better than other similar acts like Xerath. also the autotuned clean vocals aren't anything close to generic djent vocals
The first one is really good too, but they really polished their sound on the second one imo. They have some appended twisted and dissonant riffs that make me think of Kenose or SMRC iirc and, well, the use of dissonance in general. What's cool is that it's just one facet of their sound, they're far from a DsO worship band. I also got a couple of orthodoxy notes in the debut as well. Really great band, and the lyrics/subject matter is also neat.
>but idk if i can think of anything more embarrassing than a band being named manbearpig
Probably the 4th band in the collage named after what I can only assume is the Disney Movie. That Manbearpig EP is pretty nice, some catchy melodic hardcore from the UK.
it's actually a south park episode which is much more embarrassing
what are the other 4 by the way?
or other three cause i see snow white
but i can't imagine lucifer or no pigs or shitfucker being named after disney movies
why did you guys tell me this album was bad
it's fucking great
I haven't been listening to much music lately, been listening to talk radio.
++All that motorhead
+Grave, Thy Art Is Murder
+QotSA's only good album
I'm curious, what do you think of this song?
I love this EP a lot, used to listen to it back in the day. They incorporate some melodeathy riffs with the scene poppy melodic flare and it just gets me going lmao. Shame that they scrapped that later on and went for a more pop-punk/rock approach. Btw more pop metalcore bands desperately need to have more open hi-hat disco beats.
a thread without Black Sabbath riffs?
I was about to ask that.
It would make sense, he says historically all the fucking time
Drama Through Your Stereo. Lyrics and subject matter of the band is literally aimed at edgy 14 year old girls who wear black lip-stick and have a Jack Skellington picture album on their facebook profile and can't stop reminding you how Halloween is their favorite holiday a week before october 31st.
Yeah, I get that. They have that scene melodramatic sugary poppy flare that I'm certain conflicts with the sensibilities everyone that didn't listen to that kind of stuff when they were younger lmao. I like how they incorporated those abr-ish leads and melodeath rhythm guitar on top of that, which is what makes them stand out to me in retrospect.
Man i wish jute gyte played clean black metal, his lofi sounds like shit
My local station had a version that edited out the scream.
Also speaking of Atreyu, they are pretty essential black lipstick 14 year old girl core so
Probably, but do it anyway. I'm stoked to get my back patch so I can put it on my jacket, but is it just a meme that you should get your patches from concerts and not online?
I cant really afford to see a lot of the more mainstream bands so I figured if I got their patches online no one would care. Not like anyone could really tell, but still
I saw them when they were touring for The Black Parade, and to their credit they played that entire album, went offstage for 5 minutes, came back and played all of Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. Then they got pelted with shoes. Central California loves to throw shoes at people. And then after the place clears out there is just lots of 1-shoe'd people walking around trying to find their missing shoe.
>My local station had a version that edited out the scream
Holy shit, is this actually a thing? never really listen to metal on the radio
Miss Murder was played on pop stations
full disclosure I threw a shoe at Oli from BMTH when they opened for A Day to Remember a long time ago. Fat emo bitch in front of me almost broke my foot when she was jumping during a song
C'mon anon, concerts are expensive, and what about bands I like that don't tour or come near where I live? I dont think I should spend the money to see Sabbath next year so how would I put one of their patches on my jacket?
So then what about Sabbath, Metallica, or any of the other now huge bands? Their concerts are pretty expensive and dont come to my town often so id have to drive a few hours to see them
Why the fuck would you want to wear a Metallica patch?
2bh if a band charges upwards of $60 for their shows, you shouldn't be wearing their patches. You will look like an entry-level fag
they've 21 more gigs planned according to songkick and are actually touring for eurotrash ie. me
What is some more BM that is like Deathspell Omega?
My favorite genre is Prog/Thrash and I just learned about this shit
Best tour or best tour?
Dimension Hatross is in that essential /metal/core thing posted earlier
I like their debut album too, but it's pretty rough in comparison to some of their best work like Hatross and Nothingface
Some DsO worship from this year
pic related is influenced by them but to an extent
Honestly this album has impressive riffage.
I really like it
If you like death metal it's easy. There's plenty of amazing albums with death metal roots. If you don't like death metal, I'd start with Black Sabbath and then move on to something like Pallbearer or Yob.
try the first album in each row and decide which genres you like more than others and start exploring
