war metal edition
old thread: >>61968162
I used to like political hardcore punk that was anti establishment and talked about freedom and battling inequality. Now I hate that shit, hate the message and only listen to beatdown hardcore and lift. Is this bad?
>war metal edition
What about war metal type stuff with a slight Sodom influence, too?
>looking for power metal bands
>download some albums
>one song is literally called Saturday Satan and has a Satan, Satan, Satan chorus
It's pretty cool tbqh, what are other metal (not necessarily power) that are like that, like heavy religious lyrics.
old school death metal
it's the most banal, tuneless chugprog ever and it tries to claim that it's some profound artistic statement. I mean I don't know if it's being taken 100% seriously but the trailer seems to indicate that they're trying to pull off some DEEP message about how technology is enslaving us.
it is an absolute artistic failure on every level
Not Ready to Die was the shit when I was in highschool so i always put demon hunter in a little bit of a higher pedestal when it came to christcore
is kf2 any good i've heard some bad things about the dlc
>mfw knowing a kickass doom metal band is actually from my city
Why did you chucklefucks never tell me about this band
they've been talked about a bit esp when with their first album
this one isn't quite as good desu
btw i can never mention that band without also mentioning stone dagger and the rival mob
>THOSE FUCKING ORGAN SOLOS
>tfw buying this game with the artbook and music CD is 80 to 120 dollars
Sorry man I'm pretty new at getting into local shit, I was big on the "classics" for a while, whether they were good or bad. Guaranteed I'm paying more attention now though
Their first is better? How so? Because I think that track is rad
Also I looked up Stone Dagger, is that the same vocalist? Motherfucker's got pipes
wrongest statement in the history of mankind
Bloodborne should definitely be on the list it's fucking uncanny how many themes it has in common with The Great Mass and Communion.
undertale's soudntrack is pretty dank honestly
shoji meguro is metal as fuck
Are the first three Thief games metal?
at least post the best boss theme if you're shitposting undertale
Core and Another Medium are total jams
also, while the soundfonts aren't very metal, it's no surprise that touhou songs remix very well to metal since they have such great riffs
honestly zun is probably my favorite melody writer, he has so many moments that are purely brilliant
there's too much awesome japanese pc vidya music out there not available for download
that song sounds really cool btw
speaking of prog-influenced soundtracks, jewel master is goat
How does this look?
I added a few new titles.
Even what.cd is lacking with video game music.
>tfw disc 3 & 4 are only on the Japanese version
Speaking of Boris has anyone heard their collaboration with Goth-Trad? It's a fucking dubstep artist.
>Vinyl limited to 10 copies. Sold at collaborative "Low End Meeting" concert.
>tfw Boris still hasn't made a black metal song/album
Alien Crush/Devil Crash Arranged
VIdeo game music, Electronic, Metal
Missing The Suffering, Fear, God Of War, STALKER, Morrowind.
Replace Ratchet Deadlocked with either of the second or third RAC.
Replcae OG SMT with SMT Digital Devil Saga 1/2.
Replace Clive Barker's Jericho with Clive Barker's Undying.
Merzbow is awful though. Japan has such a cool overall scene when it comes to noise, but Merzbow is not a testament to that he's probably the worst of the well known to come from that scene.
>>Replcae OG SMT with SMT Digital Devil Saga 1/2.
I should put a note on them saying series desu. Thet's why I have the first Castlevania, DMC and SMT.
>>Replace Ratchet Deadlocked with either of the second or third RAC.
Deadlocked is the ony one that is metal though
If you like prog metal it definitely is. If you don't, not really I'd say.
I'm not too big on prog so everything after Still Life just sounds like they're rehashing the same album in hope to make something better to me.
I'm not a fan of Merzbow either (or noise for that matter except for Gerogerigegege) but I think his collaborations with Boris are fantastic.
Reminder AOTY is coming in less than a week
Definitely if you have any prog leanings, Still Life, Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries are my favourites, whether or not you have any interest in their post-Watershed output will depend largely on whether you like older prog since they pretty much dropped all the metal
You know im a pretty big yngwie fan, but i have to agree with >>61979889
He should just stick to writing slower paced neoclassical songs and avoid soloing for more than 20 seconds at a time
who hold up fuckboy
Just because ROTN is the most /fa/ metal band ever and you cant comprehend the furyo style. DOES NOT mean you get to roast
Leave the hall poser
>implying you didn't think this was heavy as shit
>not being a weeb
>in the year of 2016
>Bullet for My Valentine
is there a game soundtrack with higher concentration of butt metal?
God I just. fucking. love. black. metal.
Pic is me. Lol, my awesome long straight hair makes me look just like my idol Varg XD
>not being a weeb in /metal/, the weebiest general on /mu/
get with the times desu senpai, 99.9% of us jack off to shota porn and listen to weeaboo goregrind.
Static X may have leaned to the buttish side but even then they were never obnoxious as Disturbed or any of the other shit
Also I understand Mastodon's being on the list is a meme, they have made two buttprog albums at most
>very little actual war metal despite the title
Because metal really needs to be more gimmicky, right?
Besides shota porn is inferior virgin junk, and weeb bands are repetitive with no interesting songwriting only gimmicks.
Dude power metal is the most gimmick-less sub-genre there is, it's pure songwriting, war metal is a retarded gimmick genre with no songwriting, literally just DUDE SO HARSH LMAO XD
>he thinks editions mean anything besides flavor and meming
>hating gook metal
walk on home boy
>random gay folk shit
If only you were talking about USPM which minus some techfags is actually gimmickless. Also if that's all you got out of the good War Metal bands then all of the genre went over your head. No real gimmicks there to keep your attention.
I was making an example of what happened to metal and its fans. Also holy shit that Galneryus is pretty bad. Symphonic gimmick, weak riffs, ballsless vocalist with no punch in his singing.
holy shit m8 this is not the place for you then
>this entire post
Not even memeing but you sound new here, you wouldn't fit a week considering we constantly circlejerk symphonic j-power metal lad
>implying I actually dislike power metal or actual Japanese metal bands
This is a thread about metal.
Doesn't change the fact that gimmicky stuff is bringing metal down and has made it harder to take seriously. Whether it's monotonous breakdowns/scene kids, djent/pretension, or symphonic cheese/anime it's all musical/aesthetic gimmick there to cover for the songwriting.
Not in that way, in a "lolololol metal keeps getting worse check out this thing it's djent and dubstep" way. As in it becomes harder to believe that there's quality in the genre.
>made it harder to take seriously
Do you really care if other people take a genre seriously? Just listen to the music and don't give a damn what other people think, /metal/ has been cheesy since the late 60s, and has almost always been, it's not meant to be taken seriously unless it's really "artsy" prog. Black metal and death metal too, at their inception were cheesy.
Also Galneryus arguably has the best songwriting in power metal, though. They definitely don't use symphonies as a cover-up or as a gimmick, but as another sound to incorporate into your music. What's wrong with this? Why limit your music?
>Roy "Voice of god" Khan
please get out here newfag
>metal is serious business guys, stop diluting it with your fun
>Why limit your music?
So I ain't listening to shit?
>Implying extreme metal genres don't have music without gimmicks
Iktf the opposite way though. It's 8:00am, I haven't been able to get even a second of sleep, and here I am not starting a shitstorm...I should probably stop messing around and start the day at this point.
if you seriously believe bands should stop incorporating other sounds into metal because it's a gimmick you're fucking retarded mate, metal's always been built on gimmicks and only continues to evolve on fucking gimmicks
and speaking of being tired it's 12 AM and I should be getting to bed lad
Metal doesn't have good music because it's a gimmick being heavier than rock, rock doesn't have good music because it's a gimmick being heavier than blues, blues was made by niggers so it's shit, jazz is wank gimmick, classical is symphonic gimmick, you and me are both gimmicks
Is there a more cringeworthy power metal band than Powerglove?
>every single one of their songs is either a video game cover or saturday morning cartoon cover
desu vidya metal is fucking godawful when it's made by actual bands outside of vidya. nintendocore is the worst subgenre of all time.
It's a real genre and it's cancer.
Been running a lot of Brazilian and Colombian thrash/death/black bands from the mid 80s to early 90s: Sarcofago, pre-Roots Sepultura (that Bestial Devestation...), Reencarnación, Dorsal Atlantica, Blasfemia, Mutilator, Chakal, Sextrash, Vulcano, Pentagram (CL), and Mystifier.
Grave Desecrator, Unaussprechlichen Kulten, and maybe a couple others that are current... do some homage to this nasty style.
Any other good recommendations from our brothers from the south? Maybe missed some mid 80s/90s gems? Killer, pissed off shit.
Is there any actual documented reason why the gender demographic of metal fans is so fucked, when other popular genres have a more even split?
Womemes don't understand music or anything else but dick for that matter, so they either listen to something that's the most popular atm or music that will give them the intelectual label like jazz or classical
yeah but most hip-hop is easy as fuck to get into, they don't a give a shit about the lyrics and the ones who do tend to be p4k tier white guilters (god i hate that fucking word, it's mostly a buzzword at this point) or ghetto trash
hip-hop has the most RRRRR MANLY attitude of all the genres, i mean it's mostly a bunch of guys rapping about how many girls they fuck, how many drugs they can handle , how many cars they have and how successful they are etc etc, obviously there's tons of exceptions but those aren't really well liked by the average girl
I liked this, did you or was it too hipster feeling for some of you.
Are there any bands that combine:
Power and Doom Metal
Power and Stoner Metal
Power and Black Metal
Power and -core?
How 'bout some good shit for once in a while.
metal is for teenagers of course, no mature man would play a metal game.
This game should absolutely be up on that list. Recommend to anyone who haven't heard of it up until now, one of the greatest videys I've ever played.
It even has kind of a gothic metal song playing as a theme for the first boss battle too.
One of those bands is not like the others
>Power and Doom Metal
While Heaven Wept
And while not exactly what you want, this is mathy doom metal with high pitched power metal-like vocals
So /metal/, how many of you can relate to this?
>tfw I finnaly have yob's discography in 320kps
Realm Of Metal is goat
can everyone stop making this album a meme just because people smoke weed to it
