If you're false don't entry edition
Newfag to metal here.
I really enjoyed this. Where should I go from here?
>find mirai's thrash metal band
>look it up
>first thing I come across is RAPE! RAPE! RAPE!
>d.r.i. coming to my country
>guy said that didnt like the support band
>some guy replies to the guy
>"you motherfucker only listen to mp3 shitty false metalhead, what a shitty poser"
Why the fuck is this allowed?
Moar Edge of Sanity, late Death (Symbolic, The Sound of Perseverance), Pan.Thy.Monium, Dark Millennium, Morbus Chron, Mr. Bungle
Just noodle dissonant notes on a guitar with a ton of reverb and echoing and put some vintage keyboards that sound ominous and start chanting lyrics in an exotic language and you will be revered as an avant-garde metal god.
This. It worked amazingly for Murmuure. You can just put together random notes for just an evening of effort and people will worship you
more untalented avantmetal-noodling that gets worshiped by teenagers trying to look deep
Barely anything is as technically mindblowing as Watchtower. I mean like what you like, but I don't see what's so bad about prog era death other than like TSOP. I know you view it as "riff salad," but honestly most of it is just verse chorus.
He's a talentless hack but he knows he can exploit avant-teens.
>Some of the themes in Aarni's music may include: Balancing thy ancestral path with the positive sides of modern technology & cultural redesign; magick, occultism, esoteria and world mythologies, brain-change, Discordianism, collective & personal liberation, transhumanism and theories of analytical psychology (especially those of C.G. Jung); the Cthulhu mythos as described by H.P. Lovecraft and fellow authors; plus diverse, more obscure topics.
Shit, I ain't much for bands with gimmicks, but this band does a pretty cool job with the electronic and piano shit put into metal. Good album from last year.
>tfw my shithead roommate has a stoner friend over and they're blasting shitty 90s pop rap and dadrock
What's some metal I can listen to loudly through headphones for this feel?
Have a fairly well hidden gem.
Not the kind of stuff you'd usually hear on /mu/ i reckon, but the most overlooked metal band of these past 10 years IMHO.
These guys are litterally satan.
Not the same genre but
is the saddest song I know when it comes to metal . Thanks for the discovery btw
Akercocke are pretty much their own stuff man.
If anything, they sound like a more brutal Opeth, but that's about it.
They have nothing in common with Mithras or Chasm. Axis of perdition is also much more of an experiment, Akercocke doesn't take near as much freedom with their songs - which is a good thing in my opinion, satanic black metal tends to be pretentious bullshit with edgy effects
>less popular than most BM bands /mu/ knows about
I've never ever seen a single person other than you who knew about this band every time i've posted them .
They're definitely underappreciated for the quality of the music they put out. Never made it into the most famous metal bands , never got picked up by underground crowds either. They're just this really solid band that never belonged anywhere.
I stopped trusting album covers when i picked up a copy of a Watain CD and was greeted with some of the worst black metal i'd ever listened to
Supervillain outcast fucking sucks balls m8 i have no idea what you are on about , they're litterally /b/ as a band
What the hell? Akercocke are pretty damn well known though. They even have a song on YouTube with over a million views IIRC. Not my kinda thing though they kinda weak on the intensity side of things for like 80% of the time. When I had first heard of the band I was expecting a better more tasteful split between the varying things they do. Instead it's boring goth sounding shit for the most of it with the occasional parts that are watered down version of some Anaal nathrak or Axis Of Perdition shit. Axis Of Perdition maintains a truly scary and fucked up atmosphere all the time. Akercocke...idk it lacks the intensity and darkness truly required of such music to be satanic. Their sexual parts aren't even that great either they are like a weaker version of demo era Cradle Of Filth.
Although I understand your point , i agree with >>61777111
comparing AOP and Akercocke is like comparing a jumpscare to an atmospheric horror, even though I like AOP I think they try too hard to be creepy and sacrifice a lot of their music to all the white noise they put forward.
they just throw scary shit at you. Akercocke never actually stops the music and is just much more tense in general , like a moving curtain you wouldn't dare to lift
Now if you don't like their music, it's a whole other thing, of course. Tastes aren't discussable :(
Have you given AOP a full listen? They have a wide variety of atmospheric noises that go on often when there's no blasts from the guitars or drums.
Like you can't even call Akercocke atmospheric horror cuz synth strings (the main synthy sound they use) is overused as fuck in everything and honestly sounds cheesy as fuck. I prefer variety in my atmospheric sounds that AOP brings, not the same shit that Akercocke does.
But then personal tastes like you said aren't something you can discuss. Shit I fucks with Selena Gomez' Same Old Love, and honestly I can't even explain why I like it (maybe cuz the local gym plays it so much but idk.)
I don't know man, when I listen to AOP i just start skipping the "scary" parts after a while . I love the brutal parts though, but I can't associate the ambiant parts to any activity whatsoever
if you think villain whatever ever made good music, i can with the utmost certainty that your opinions regarding anything else are garbage
Also this one is pretty notable, that fade in on the last chord of the chord progression almost makes me want to check if there's anyone behind me
Unnerving as fuck, I can't be the only one here
I really respect people who make music like this to be able to come up with something so messy yet so clean
These guitar parts must be an absolute pain in the ass to pull off live.
You didn't get my point. Horror stops being horror when it's constantly all up in your face. That's what I don't like about AOP.
Yes, they have atmosphere, but they have too much of it. I'm pretty sure they spent more time recording weirdass sounds than actually recording music on the silent hill tribute album.
the only metal album that has ever came off as EVIL sounding to me is pic related. Way more fuckin evil/creepy sounding than either AOP or Ackercocke.
that guitar tone, that drum tone, the relentless instrumentation, it all just adds up to be the soundtrack to warfare against everything good
This one and The Promise are probably their most stressful songs. I love it how they give me cold sweats out of fear sometimes despite having listened to these songs about a hundred times each.
Like a kid telling a spoopy story
What are you referring to by low vocals? The cleans? Or the growls?
This is objectively good but I really hate the production
Encenathrakh are nuts. They're like Portal's hyperactive little brother.
Another cool bit of trivia is that Defeated Sanity recorded their last album (Passages into Deformity) live.
So...you prefer jump scares then? Akercocke does jack shit for minutes into a song and then BOO! AOP's sounds tell you that okay, you're in this place, but something doesn't feel right. You are going through this place and nothing bad has happened so far, but even then there's just this feeling about this place that gives you the creeps. Then the initial riffing happens due to initial encounters. Shit's going awry now. As things start to get weirder and weirder, the riffs themselves become more and more twisted. Soon you notice your surroundings and realize that you're still in the same place, but it now looks very different and disturbing. It's as if you are in completely different place but you know you're still in the very same place you started. The horror here's consistent like a good horror movie or game that doesn't just wait for the scary monster to make things bad.
Akercocke instead will have boring riffs and synths for a large part of the song. What do they set up? With the more conventional take on metal riffs and typical synths it seems dark like your typical 90s vampire goth shit, ultimately unthreatening. Then after a few minutes of plodding like that things get BAD! out of nowhere. There's possibly build up to this BAD! in the first few minutes of a song, but it's more conveyed through lyrics than music which again, plays it very safe with conventional metal riffing and conventional stringy background synths.
Point being that the only way AOP is all up in your face is that there's a more constant feel of horror as opposed to Akercocke where the horror doesn't come in musically until the later parts of songs (sometimes earlier I think, too.)
Good album. But not even that evil though. I prefer actual war metal for the soundtrack to warfare against everything good.
It's from the roots of death metal, it's not going to be educated in terms of death metal production. Morbid Angel have never really had good production though. Covenant is the best.
I think you might like this as well
>"p-please stop memeing!!"
is this /pol/? I thought we were discussing music in here, not fat old swedes who never made good music or progressive vegetarian german noisecore
Yup that makes a lot more sense.
You sound like you're new to more extreme forms of metal or at least ones that don't have a more generic form of production. It's a more raw form of production done that way for increasing the intensity but is overall less percussive.
I love both Altars and Covenant but I can never really compare the two though. They literally sound like two albums from completely different bands.
Covenant does have the best production however, but god damn the lyrics can be pretty bad
>addicted to deathgrind/goregrind
what have you done to me /metal/
That's my point. By today's standards and considering Altars came about at the beginning of death metal (and before digital recording), a complaint about the production isn't an argument.
Inhume are the right way to go with goregrind. Squash Bowels are great too.
I invested a lot of time into that genre and it's generally a cesspool of half-assed garbage.
I'm addicted to tin can snares now. Tin can snares on anything is addicting.
god damn this is as good as it is funny, haven't audibly laughed while listening to a metal album before, the brutal instrumentation and production also made it
What's your thoughts about Abbath's new album?
I listened to it twice and liked it but imo something is missing in the album.
seeing Full of Hell live was one of the most personal music experiences (there were 10 of us left after the local bands and their normie friends left)
and it was loud. very, very loud
>BTBAM is STILL around
>people STILL listen to BTBAM
Why? They peaked with Colors and even then I can't make it through the whole album since it's just riff after disjointed riff.
s/t a best.
OH NO YOU DIDNT
>they peaked with colors
Arguable. Parallax is at least as good, if not better
Why would they not be around? They've always been a /mu/ classic . Was just posting them for giggles, really
If people are looking for Immortal, this album is gonna disappoint the fuck out of them. If people are looking for a fun metal album with nice riffs they'll dig it. The music has a lot less tremolo picking and blast beats that one expects from Immortal, but that doesn't make it bad though.
Black metal, disregarding the easy to listen aspect of Traditional Metal, probably the most popular Metal subgenre among music lovers cuz there's always something for everyone in it. Being the black sheep of metal, it more easily interacts with non-metal genres, too. Also of all the other genres it's the only one outside certain doom bands that can be lacking on the riffs side and still be really good.
I like the spell of destruction version much more personally
pretty funny how "vagoo vikermemes" went from church burner to prison buttslut
Here's something different just for you
pic related and the album that came out after that, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
Don't thank that guy >>61778690
If you've never listened to metal before, I suggest starting with these albums :
>Mastodon - Blood Mountain
>Death - Symbolic
>Opeth - Ghost Reveries
These are gateway bands that can lead you up to a lot of different things and are fairly easy to listen to if you actually dig metal.
Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane. The easiest to listen to black metal album of all time, great production, melodic style of black metal
Immortal - At the Heart of Winter. More traditional than Dissection, still not pure unadulterated BM. That will come later
My third rec would be what >>61778706 posted, that is essential entry into black metal listening.
Another good rec then would be Dark Fortress - Tales from Eternal Dusk. Not talked about much here, but I believe it is a great black metal classic that is relatively easy listening.
After you listen to these if you are still interested in the genre, you can get into the more raw sounds
Well, black metal is pretty versatile as I said in that post you replied to so 3's gonna be tough.
First Wave Black Metal: Bathory - Blood Fire Death
Second Wave Black Metal: Burzum - Hvis Lysett Tar Oss
Something different: Ved Buens Ende - Written In Waters
The first one has a few guitar parts that are clean and sound like they belong in folk music along with the badass riffing typical of metal. The second one from the popular Norweigan second wave has a lot of similarities to ambient music even having background synths and does a minimal atmospheric approach to it. The third one has very a very interesting jazzy feel to it that mixes very well with the more chaotic side of metal.
>Not quite sure what got me into them but their live show with roughly 150 people packed into a tiny venue called the Creepy Crawl made a fan for life. Mostly because the bassist set the head of the bass on fire and was spitting fuel into all over the ceiling so much that the front 2 rows had to jump in the mosh pit or take the heat. Then the guys moshed with us while Vader played. Not that anyone cares.
No problem. All memes aside about Varg himself, Burzum is probably the peak of black metal IMO, but the sound can be pretty harsh if you aren't ready for/used to the lowfi BM sound
Help me remember an album
>Cover is purple or blue spike looking things pointing to the left
>French or French-Canadian
>kinda of atmospheric
>name may start with an A
Ring any bells?
Been making my way through the Motorhead discography since Lemmy passed and shit, this album is so fucking good. I wish I hadn't overlooked it. I think it's the best thing they have ever done.
post is deleted but
>The lack of elitism is killing /metal/ and allowing cancer to spread.
If people aren't gonna explore shit then they aren't gonna explore shit. You can't force people to actually want to listen to music that doesn't fall within their comfort zone.
it's awesome. you guys are just looking for modern bm cliches too much. he's pretty old now and i think you can hear that in the music, but in a good way. pretty much all black metal these days is focused on dissonance or atmosphere. this album is waaayy more rooted in traditional rock and roll than most other modern bm you'll hear. it sounds like it could be a first-wave bm album. I really appreciate it as a change of pace. it's kind of like an old bm veteran showing all the new kids how it's supposed to be done. the riffing is totally classic, and it had me head-banging practically the whole time.
Best grind album of all time to be perfectly honest lads
>look at the MA forums
>see this fucking thread
Oh my god.
of course. if shit gets too intense you can always just back up. moshing really only happens towards the front. of course you should try moshing before you decide to hang back. it will make the experience way more fun. people won't fuck you up or anything just try to have a wide stance and let those primal emotions take over. should be a great show anon i'm jealous
Listen to >>61780827
It's a metal show, moshing is just pushing eachother around, and if someone gets knocked down everyone spreads out or helps them up.
All the dangerous moshing shit you've heard about is at metalcore shows
not exactly lo fi but damn is it so good for walking around at night
Damnnnnn...Black Fast ain't hitting my town, but shit one of my old friend's band is gonna be playing that show, too. Or more like my college town. Looks like it's time to make a visit!
man, is that image swap glitch still happening? got ur back tho
Fuck that's a show I'd go to. No CA locations though.
>going to commiefornia
>being in commiefornia
the majority of californians are actually conservatives. there are a ton of army bases here. sure there are stoner, hippie, surfers too, but not as many as non-californians seem to think.
also, stoner, hippie, surfer reporting in
can't provide a source but i heard that statistic from one of my professors not too long ago. i remember because i was surprised too. i don't care enough to prove it to you though so interpret that however you like
I don't even remember how I found out about this album, but it's probably the most underground thing I've ever heard.
Todesstoß / Circle Of Ouroborus - Tongue Carvings
Avant garde black metal
The fuck is with the "bong" sound around 4:22? https://youtu.be/uZmDL_PzvdY?t=271
