/Metal/ - memes, politics and geography
This album isn't even metal or metal related, I just really really like it edition
>Infectious Maggots - Deep Within our Grief Factory Milk Runs Red
>Malaysian industrial deathgrind. Super fucked up and raw. The tracks where the industrial filters and metal riffs collaborate are good, but there's a lot of redundant stuff (first 2 songs are nearly indistinguishable remixes of the same thing) and filler. Still, intriguing. Think it most closely reminds me of the Japanese band Multiplex.
reposting because fuck you guys it's funny
check the filename this time for gods sake
I'm considering changing the power album to powerwolf's Lupus Dei, and the melodeath to one of DT's albums. Thoughts?
bali is the most touristy section so it's the safest but it's also terribly inauthentic and exploitative. all sorts of horror stories about how residents can't afford to live in their own towns anymore because of that fucking eat pray love book
jakarta seems like it'd be cool as fuck to visit if only because of the size, but indonesia isn't one of those places where most of the people speak any level of english. i mean even in india, the british influence means that there's a ton of bilingual people. also this lol
the best southeast asian city to visit (minimum risk of muggings/dying of food poisoning, least language issues) is probably bangkok but don't take my word for it. there's also singapore but that will end poorly if
>I just don't want to be arrested for some dumb shit I didn't know I was doing.
i was going to share some indonesian tech death album too but it seems that my version has an incorrect tracklist meaning it might be faked and therefore i'm starting to question reality
I've heard singapore is cool, but ya, I know they're kind of Draconian.
Honestly though, the only countries I'd really wanna visit in East Asia are China and Japan. I'm kind of a Nordiboo, and Europe is much further on my list of travels.
I feel like >symphonic metal is just an autistic categorization of any metal with a violin or strings in a song. You could call many power metal, black metal, and heavy metal bands "symphonic" and they all have radically different approaches.
So what do you guys listen to outside of metal? Curious.
I made a chart, more of a last couple days then all time but a few of my favorite albums on both sides are here.
Mention what you like both in and out of metal, for relevance to the thread and because it'll be neat.
Symphonic metal is a blanket term to refer to bands who use keyboards, and in some cases violin, to add a symphonic sound to their music. Naturally, trying to recreate the dynamic sound of an orchestra with one or two instruments is a recipe for failure but sometimes a band xomes along who can pull it off
i was around when it was spammed and everyone was like "oh man look at Japan being wacky again!" and the whole craze felt so manufactured and hollow
the fact that they have deluhi's guitarist makes me sort of interested, but just sort of
Jazz, some classical (though I hardly know shit about it), electronic like Banks and Feathers, indie rock like Arctic Monkeys and Band of Skulls, and been getting into west coast gangsta rap. I still don't know why I like it.
I've been wanting to get into noise rock but I don't know where to start.
I'm a definite pop fan. Usually less influenced by hip hop as much as rock. My fucking roommate has been listening to bro-country for the last month, and I'm starting to listen to it, even though I know it's terrible.
I also like certain hip hop artists like Kanye West and Eminem, but don't delve too deep into the genre.
I like indie rock, usually the more dirty, punk or garage influenced stuff. Bands like Kaiser Chefs, Arctic Monkeys, or Cage the Elephant.
I'm a fan of certain "classical" artists as well. My current favorites are Liszt and Tchaikovsky.
meh, it's okay. I dunno about that chugfest in the beginning, and the drumming was a little too trigger heavy for me, but the vocals are good.
shit tons. lots of dance music (esp. techno), punk+hardcore+crust, ambient, jazz+free improv, noise, industrial, drone, folk music from around the world, pop, some hip hop, weird guitar shit, reggae, ...
well, this was my last 7 days so quite a lot
There is literally nothing wrong with skellymeme prove me wrong
I mostly listen to dark folk (like Of The Wand & The Moon) and avant electronics like Ulver and Manes.
In winter there's also some dark ambient/dungeon synth and in summer I usually take out the shoegaze and screamo.
other than that it'S black metal all day every day
debatable. Good, but debatable.
Schubert is good though, I'll give you that. Really for the most part there's just a big gap between Bach's death and Mozart's later life where absolutely nothing of value was made, with some exceptions. And then another gap after Schubert died until Debussy started composing. I can stomach chopin simply because of nostalgia, but holy shit fuck Lizst pre 1880, Wagner, Berlioz, all thos niggas. The Schumanns can eat at the kids table, they're ok.
Technically speaking he's the last romantic composer. I don't think he's that great though, he's kind of the hipsters first choice of favorite composer.
This is only accurate if you're only experience with modern classical is yanni. Hell, there's some great 21st century work.
My favorite composer, and he JUST retired from composing a few years ago.
>Are there still black metal bands that do all the church burning etc?
I don't think so.
>Does anyone here actually support them?
>I don't know what unplugged guitars sound like
This is literally the sound I've always been looking for holy FUCK
Been digging these guys lately. Got into them from their 2015 release but Bilateral and Tall Poppy Syndrome are great too
What do you think /metal/? Or are they not metal enough?
Literally any dissonant black band is better than deathspell
Literally any osdm band is better than autopsy
Literally any power band is better than helloween
Literally any thrash band is better than sodom

>I'm getting the impression that acid bath is babbies first sludge
desu that's babbies first opinion on sludge
check out Eyehategod, Dystopia, Stone Titan, Weedeater, Meth Drinker, Bongzilla, Harvey Milk and Bongzilla
could probably be changed to match my current opinions better but w/e
i've never been big on genre defining bands. they end up being the most copied thus most stale
heavy, doom and thrash aren't preferred genres for me so i just chucked in first thing that popped into my head. the sword are playing soon so they've been in my mind lately
i'm open for suggestions. particularly death if you wanna share. i'm not really into doom apart from bluesy stoner stuff.
decapitated lost me after winds of creation. which really disappointed me because i was so excited for their follow up
necrophagist are stale with technicality for me and much too clean. i don't know why they even bother with growling. they may as well put some faggot prog vocalist on top of that shit
cryptopsy never grabbed me as anything special. while i do like them and there's nothing wrong about what they do, i find their albums tend to blend into a mass and there's rarely a passage where a riff grabs me and makes me pay attention
will check out the other two
yall should listen to this. Singer sounds a bit like a squeaky toy at times but dem riffs
yes it is. it's a tech death album that has excellent production but doesn't fall into that trap of sounding inhuman. do like
i never listened to this for some reason. am listening now. cheers
ok good call. that could've been a fav instead. actually i was having a quick listen to imperial doom from the suggestion before >>62034109 and thought this is just legion lite
chthe'ilist is the best death metal album i've heard in a long time
>I've listened to the first full-length and it was boring as fuck
Eh, dif'rent strokes I guess. Maybe I should swap it for Weakling or something as it's just the first thing that came to mind.
this is pure out of curiosity.
How did you get into this hard metal? I mostly enjoy nice and flowing melodies in music.
I think Gojira is kind of the hardest I truly enjoy. I tried listening to and getting into some of you guys' recs but I simply couldn't feel comfortable listening to it.
So, why do you think these harder metal genres are appealing & how did you get to where you are now?
Start with the more melodious stuff then move into the harder shit
I started in middle school with shit like Slipknot and Korn, eventually moved on to melodic death metal (with clean vocals) like Soilwork and In Flames. From there I got into deathcore and melodic death metal without clean vocals like At The Gates and Kalmah. Then I progressed into atmoshit like Agalloch and Fenl. From there I got into some old school death metal like Autopsy and Death alongsode harsher black metal like Paysage d'Hiver. Then eventually I just went full OSDM and raw black metal. Later I got into war metal and now I can't enjoy extreme metal if it's not harsh, raw, or old school.
That sounds like a pretty natural path to follow.
Perhaps my taste may evolve into the harsher stuff although I'm now kind of going back to more poppy-sounding music.
Anyway, thanks for the interesting read.
post better death metal releases
>i've never been big on genre defining bands. they end up being the most copied thus most stale
Thoughts on this? Listening to it right now and it's surprisingly good imo
how can one band be so based lads
>tfw basic bitch
Alternative choices :
Iron maiden s/t in place of rainbow rising
ATHOW instead of l'ordure
Souls at zero for a real sludge album ( went for industrial instead even if streetcleaner is quite sludgey )
Jane doe for a real metalcore album
While being a gothic metal album, world coming down is doom enough to be placed in the doom category imo
If not it would probably have been Monotheist or Dopethrone
SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE SMASH A SINGLE
I meant "for an album that's actually sludge"
Of course Neurosis is not "real sludge" still atmosludge would fit here
Now thinking of it Streetcleaner may be actually more sludge than Neurosis
I hope you haven't been sleeping on this
>trip defends atmoshit
not surprised at all
>Tripfag expects to get away with being a whiny faggot
And i did that in 70 secondes after the post of preacher with the toaster
am i forced to wait for preacher to post and then post behind him beneath the 60sec limit just to prove i'm not samefagging?
Yes, until you do so, you're forever a stinky samefag in my eyes, but even then you will probably post from your phone or some shit, there's no use buddy, your case is closed cuck
dude who cares
That's B8? That's mostly my actual taste
