You're right. They are hard to classify. They're an interesting group, because they cull inspiration from so many different genres. It's like Frank Zappa mixed with the Dead Kennedys, with some Slayer, Ornette Coleman, and Armenian folk music on the side. Their self titled debut is one the best metal recordings of the '90s.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

I am a pretty big System of a Down fan. I would classify them as Metal. They might have an odd sound, but they're still heavy and whatnot, so no matter how many different styles of music are in their band, it's still all metal to me..Damn catchy good metal at that.

So far I've listened to some samples of Pig Destroyer's Terrifyer and am quite impressed.

Another band I listen to is Eternal Tears of Sorrow. No, not their very last release but.. albums like Chaotic Beauty and A Virgin and a Whore.

And.. is Scar Symmtery any good?

when in doubt, call Alternative. Alternative, that wonderful little genre for the stuff that doesn't really fit anywhere.

I would call them Alternative metal.

I think System of a Down falls into that general alternative metal area for those bands that are heavy, but don't really fit in any other established genres. I dunno, I don't really think of them as metal. Obviously, some of their songs are pretty heavy, but a lot of them are pure post-hardcore or some kind of freaky mix of pop and metal.

YES!! The Human Equation is still my favorite album ever!

I've had the privilege to see Arjan Lucassen live with his new band Stream of Passion this year here in the Netherlands. They really rocked, they played some ayreon tracks too so that was a really cool gig to attend.

Anyone who likes a bit of different kind of metal/progrock now and then should listen to Ayreon NOW. I simply can't recommend it enough, it's pure genius.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

I listened to their album, and it definitely has a Soilwork-inspired sound, but with more death vocals. I personally liked "Reborn" the best off the album, but you can get in in 192 for free off of their site.

I heard the samples for Evergrey's new album, Monday Morning Apocalypse, and if all the tracks are like the samples, I'll definitely have to get it.

Also got a Megadeth discography, but I noticed the remastered tracks are pretty different from the originals, and I can't decide if I like it or not. Either way, Holy Wars =

Need to pick up In Flames' Come Clarity, too. It has single-handedly made me a believer in the band. I was never too big a fan of their classic stuff, but this new album is a lot closer to thrash, so I guess that's why I like it more. I think Anders' vocals are put to a lot better use for this album too. Not too poppish, but not totally inaccessable to more melodic fans like myself.

Might have just been the respective venues, but I wasn't too thrilled after seeing Opeth, despite their being one of my favorite bands. Dark Tranquillity is definitely a badass live band, though.

Have any of you guys heard of Rhapsody? They're awesome, like an Italian(but sing in English) Sci-Fi Fantasy Metal Band! It's awesome, if you want an idea what they're like, download the song "Emerald Sword" or go to their site here for more details...

I kinda like Rhapsody and I can take the cheeseness of their lyrics but the vocals of Fabio Lione are really putting me off. I really liked the Luca Turilli solo albums more which are basicly Rhapsody with a completely different singer (much better IMHO).

So till Mr. Lione improves/changes his singing style i'm not looking that forward to their next album.

Following through. Dark Tranquility started with about 45 minutes of music. It was mostly from their newest, "Character", and was a great opening act.
DevilDriver was definitely a weak point in the show. Dez Fafara's overwrought seriousness didn't quite fit with the Scandinavians, who told jokes between songs. Mind you, their set was better than I expected, as they're a much better live act than on record.
Then came Opeth, with an amazing two hour set including one song from every album (with the exception of "Damnation"), and three numbers from their newest. Mikael Åkerfeldt's virtuoso guitar work, punishing vocals, and surprising sense of humor was unstoppable. Fill in drummer Martin Axenrot was seamless, and they gave him a solo after announcing his birthday. Highlights were "The Drapery Falls" and "Under The Weeping Moon".
Unsurprisingly, the Swedes ruled the night.

Sounds like a great gig. I really hope I get to see the Opeth guys live this year here in the Netherlands that would be great.

Haven't heard of the other bands though what kind of metal are they playing?

Dark Tranquility are a melodic death metal outfit from Gothenburg. Their original lead singer formed In Flames.

DevilDriver is kind of a shitty nu metal band from California. Their lead singer used to be in Coal Chamber. As I said, they're better live than on album, but they still suck when playing beside Opeth.

Anyone would, so no one should feel bad about that.

Dark Tranquillity is a good band. I saw them live last summer and their show rocked. Recommended if they tour around where you live. Their albums are more of a mix though. They're all good albums with a few great tracks, but their problem is flatness. No contrasts anywhere.

I agree. They only did seven or eight songs, but that was what was holding their set back.

Has anyone listened to Arsis? I've seen Opeth live as well as Arsis, Opeth are good, but Arsis if they played together would blow them the fuck out of the water. But then again, i tend to dislike anything acoustic in metal, it is just ruins the metal in metal. If anyone is interested in checking them out, i can upload their album and their new EP! I uploaded them before the board crash, but no-one checked them out, but it seems this time around far more people are interested in music then before.

I'd take you up on that.

Also, I was kind of surprised that Opeth didn't pull out anything acoustic this time around. It was a metal set, and all the better for it.

Kickass. Im the process of uploading the arsis stuff, the rest of the coup and some TG stuff.

Im going to see Arsis live on the 16th of may, they are playing with With Necrophagist, Cattle Decapitation, Neuraxis, and Alarum in San Francisco. Sadly, they are getting stuck with playing with alot of shitty bands.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Absolutely a good call on the Metallica, but I question the Slayer. Slayer is one of the few thrash outfits that have stuck to their guns all these years. I don't think they've weakened in the slightest. Along with Motörhead, they are easily the most reliable band in metal. You always know what you're going to get when you pick up their new album.
