What a bunch of nice people
nsbm is faget
go jerk of to trees like your waifu varg
Alright guys, no posturing here. What do you think is the single best melodeath song in the subgenre?
I'm gonna go with the title track of Heartwork.
how many times have i seen people post about how they have no one to talk to about metal with who isn't a pleb
how many times have you rushed home from school or work or whatever NEET thing to get to /metal/ and post about it
how many times do we have to waste threads on pointless genre hate
I unironically like Slipknot. Iowa is my favorite album ever. im a girl too btw
well most black metal demos are just shit so i don't really bother with them, but you're right, I really should look into some of them.
got any recs for super obscure/outlandish stuff with a decent sound?
>you will never listen to my plague for the first time again
THERE'S SOMETHING INSIDE ME THAT FEELS LIKE BREATHING IN SULLLLFFEEEEEERRR
I love the wide vibrato he does with his voice during those blast beat sections, it sounds so good and fits so well, really natural and genuine
SO SAVE YOUR BREATH I WILL NOT HEAR
I THINK I MADE IT VERY CLEAR
YOU COULDN'T HATE ENOUGH TO LOVE
Now this is some rad shit right here, even though it's thrash, the whole feel of the album really reminds me of x-japan for some reason, really charming
like a better version of deathspell
also; their best album?
moar polish shit damn it
not exactly black metal
Explain why you haven't preordered the AOTY yet
Batushka, this album from 2015 is excellent.
So this is my favorite Post-Metal album.
I think the genre is kinda stagnant and somewhat boring, but this album is fucking fantastic.
Anyone here have a listen to this?
Intronaut was probably the best post-metal this year, Sumac was pretty good too
The genre is practically dead now since Cult of Luna is the only band that produces solid albums
dark and full of mystery
I don't know, I think Russian Circles can still put out some good stuff.
That said, I just think everyone in the genre sounds roughly similar. Departure Songs pulls a lot from Post-Rock but has by far a more interesting "theme" than most post-metal/rock prog-metal bands of the year.
>Humans attempting to do great things and then failing
>A tribute to mankind's greatest journies
Also, the fact that it's only five songs helps. Feels pretty personal
Russian Circles are a weird case, they are mot atmospheric sludge at all, they are much closer to heavy math/post-rock
And they are carried entirely by their drummer
Season of Mist, Profound Lore, Earache, Candlelight,Peaceville
Century Media and Metal Blade put some good stuff once in a while
>You will NEVER be as good as Dave at drumming
God it makes me truly sad
I could actually probably jack off watching Dave work the drums. From a technical stand point he's mind blowing
not really into any of those instrumental bands and polyphia seem to be a lot more structurally basic and predictable than chon or what have you. they need restraint, but seem to be going in the opposite direction aesthetically.
Dementia 13, Festering, Infra, Corpus Christii, Morte Incandescente, Goatfukk, Nevoa, Process of Guilt, Onirik, Before The Rain, Desire, Carma, Inverno Eterno and some more im forgetting.
Our scene is small but has some great bands
it's feel-good party metal and i suppose that's ok if you're in the mood but, as i mentioned, the aesthetic is super unappealing to me
like all of those other instrumental noodling bands it just feels like a more technical version of the upbeat muzak they play in offices to keep workers motivated
Would you have let this man fuck you in the ass? I would have and I'm straight.
These are the essentials
There are other great bands like Novembre and sentenced
honestly the first song that came to mind was Tales of Promise by Light Bringer, the opening riff is racing game as fuck
this too maybe?
FUCK THE NORM
I mean, I'd be up for cheesy tremolo picked guitar leads backed by uplifting blast beats and shrieking about questing for the magic sword to destroy the dragon and ave the kingdom.
>tfw want to make brutal melodeath
>tfw want to make brutal death/2nd wave bm
>tfw want to make technical blackened thrash
>tfw want to make technical grindcore
>tfw want to find a way to mix slams with atmoshit
what your guys opinion on anaal nathrakh?
metal is fucking shit guys listen to shoegaze instead! :D
>tfw want to find a way to mix slams with atmoshit
>mfw 3:40 and beyond
so whatcha listenin to
one of those late-90s prog albums influenced by DT circa Awake. very subdued and sparse, introspective, but it's a sort of thing i like for some odd reason
>release actually good deathcore album mostly on the back of the vocalist performance
>vocalist leaves band
what a shame, this album scratches the buttrock itch i haven't felt for 10+ years
Post essential "my arm hurts" albums
Would Metallica have stayed good if he hadn't died?
Anybody ever listen to August Burns Red? I have almost no interest in metalcore however they are different. Drums lead more than guitar and you can hear heavy inspiration from classic thrash and doom metal throughout parts of their songs.
I don't know about you guys but I refuse to absorb any modern swedish media
>hatred for mankind
>marrow of a bone
>heart of oak
Just needs The Money Store and holy shit this would almost be all I've listened to all month.
my point stands, that guy does every big power metal cover (and some smaller bands, like evertale and bane of winterstorm) and ugh they are so fucking bland
i get they're going for a hollywood movie poster aesthetic but the palette makes it all feel really flat
everything is blue and orange, pham-a-lam
no but I saw them I think 17 years ago and they were pretty good. They're playing here soon at a very tiny club which I cannot even imagine how thats going to work out but unfortunately I wont be able to go because of work myself.
I know Mastodon is referred to as "diet sludge" but I really enjoy this. Anything similar?
Age of Empires II, a game from 1999, gets another modern expansion.
It's called "African Kingdoms."
That black guy, without the flag edit, is on the cover of the expansion adjacent to two other characters of light complexions.
/v/ and /pol/ sperg out because, you know, blacks are supposed to be retarded and shit like that.
So the WE WUZ KINGS meme started.
Alberto Barbosa is just some random stereotypical Portuguese name, like Mario and Luigi are typical Italian names.
Read up on the afrocentric articles lately, it supposes that Egyptians were Black and their civilization fell because evil whites overthrew them.
I'm not sure if this technically has jazz in it, but whatever. This is easily my favorite atheist song. That fucking bassline shouldn't be possible.
That's such a long time ago it might as well be a different band
I agree. The performance was nice. Slight variations in all of the songs they played, particularity in a larger contrast of tempo between sections.
nile are very good at what they do, and they've done some ambitious takes on their formula. my biggest problems with them tend to be related to production and direction - sanders can write some amazing riffs but often the songs will just blaze through a bunch of riffs and end without building up to anything
What went wrong with symphonic and operatic metal, /metal/?
how do i learn about sandwiches
the vocals are insane at points like they dont care if their vocal chords are destroyed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu2-8m9k51E
neo-tech thrash maybe but I don't see how you could find Watchtower, Deathrow, Coroner or Mekong Delta boring. Some of the coolest and most unpredictable compositions in metal.
i gotta go to bed but check this list it's fairly comprehensive
this guy reviews some pretty cool obscure tech thrash too
that's my usual sources for the genre aside from hamburgerboy's rym ratings so if you look thru those you'll be just as much of an expert as me :>
