If it's crap ... We'll tell you
...sigh. What should I post in response to half-baked metalcore and misguided progressive? Let's try some of this:
Deathspell Omega - The Shrine of Mad Laughter: Black metal the way people with skill actually make it. A genre that too often is lyrically laughable, these guys actually know what they're doing, it would be worth it to read along.http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/deathspellomega/fasitemaledictiini...
Coffinworm - Start Saving for Your Funeral: Sludge/Doom. Filthy. Like, disgustingly filthy.
Boris - Missing Pieces: They're Boris, and... uh, they sound like Boris. Which is to say completely awesome.
Equilibrium - Mana: Because you know, every once in a while, you get that urge to venture out into the woods with a wooden sword and slay whatever you come across. This would make the best journeying music ever, just saying.
Triptykon - Myopic Empire: Current band of that guy who formed a little known band called Celtic Frost. If that's not enough to get you to listen to this, I'm done trying. That's 5 to match your 5, get back to me.
Let's get old school for a bit to see what types of bands influenced every band on this thread so far.
and of course these guys
Touche, sir. I am into most forms of metal (even metalcore/deathcore) I just love metal. But I'll retort with real metal if you please :p
The only Genre of metal I admittingly don't like is black metal. Though I have to say I'm digging Deathspell Omega, but they're not typical black metal. They are more death/black metal, Imo. Like I said I'm not into Black metal, but here is what I got.
Extol. Oldie, but goodie.
Here is some filthy sludge.
It speaks for its self.
Equilibrium is good. But I prefer Kalmah for my epic journeys.
That is nice, Didnt hear about it. Totally going to check this out. But How do I even respond to that? I guess I'll just use Wintersun.
And Anata, just because I feel like they should be mentioned.
Ditto on Kalmah. Anata is an EXTREMELY technical band. Tons of time changes, and layers would make it difficult for even casual metal listeners to enjoy them, though.
Not sure if these have been mentioned but some other great ones are:
Anata deserve to be mentioned anywhere because they're fantastic. Props for the Electric Wizard and Cynic posts too. I'm really not sure what direction to head in next, so I'm just gonna post another group of songs for you to check out.
Immolation - The Rapture of Ghosts. Seeing as you posted Anata, it might be a waste of time to post Immolation since you likely already know them, but this song is so damn good that I'm going to post it anyway in the hopes that someone who hasn't clicks on it.
Primordial - As Rome Burns. An Irish metal band that way more people should know than actually do. This is from what I believe to be their best record, To the Nameless Dead.
Cyclone - So Be It. Thrash all day every day 'cause it's the right thing to do. \m/
Decree - Finite Years. Noisy, guitar-driven industrial in the vein of Streetcleaner-era Godflesh if they were way more pissed off. And it's from 2011.
Brutality - These Walls Shall Be Your Grave. Death metal with riffs for days and days and days and days.
Not a metalhead by any definition but I like these:
