The Metal Thread! (The Zombie Edition)

The boards have crashed and so that means the almighty Metal Thread has been vanquished. It is time to start anew, to rise from the ashes with the mighty metal hammer falling from the heavens and smashing the heathens!


Kalmah just recently released a new album and I for one am excited about it. I dig them, though I know some are turned off by their Children of Bodom sound, however I've read that the new Kalmah incorporates more death metal growling than black metal screeches.

Are you excited for any new releases or upcoming concerts?

Jam it back in, in the dark.

3/2/06 Opeth w/ DevilDriver @ The Venue, Winnipeg. Can't wait.

Maybe not quite metal, but heavy nonetheless, I also can't wait for my copy of Noise Addiction by Pure Hell on Welfare Records. That one's been waiting far too long. PURE HELL

I haven't been listening to much Metal lately, allthought I do from time to time, I just haven't been in the mood for it as of late.

One interesting band that someone has shown me was Knorkator. They are a VERY interesting odd sounding band. I really couldn't get into them much at first, but after hearing their cover of "Try Again" from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack it got me hooked because, well it's just a catchy song and them doing just was great to hear.

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

A blogger on the Internet ran into Alex Lifeson at his bar, and apperantly Alex States that he's written 6 new songs for Rush's next album. I can't remember where the blog was, or even if it was a blog, but i read it somewhere. If i find it i'll post it.

I guess Rush isn't really metal, but it's pretty close.

Recently I have been hooked to both Disarmonia Mundi and Deadlock. Mundi's maintaining Soilwork's Natural Born Chaos atmosphere with a Predator's Portrait feel. Quite good. Same for Deadlock actually.

As for upcoming releases, waiting for Kalmah's new release and Wintersun's new release as well. Any bands of the similar caliber (and yes, I know Soilwork, DT, In Flames et al).

And is Pig Destroyer cool or nope?

I was speaking idiomatically.

I'd say so. I haven't heard much of their stuff, but Terrifier was a great album. Easily a top ten of 2005 for me.

Pig Destroyer fucking OWN.

That said, I haven't really listened to much (if any) black/death metal lately. I've been living on noise music mostly -- with Iron Maiden/Mercyful Fate/Dio binges occasionally. Although I do still listen to (and love) grindcore.

Also, The Axis of Perdition are probably the best "black" metal band ever. Well, I guess the easiest genre to put them in would indeed be black metal.. although I guess post-black metal (what) would be nice. Bleh.

So just wondering, what metal bands do you all listen to? I never paid attention in the last metal thread, but I could probably talk about music more in here if I knew what people listened to in this topic. My favorite metal bands

Dream Theater
Demons & Wizards
Blind Guardian
Iced Earth
In Flames
Soilwork
Metallica
Megadeth
Nightwish
Lunatica

Some others, but obviously I am not into the huge death metal style, but I am open to quite a few different styles of metal.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Right now?

Iron Maiden
Mercyful Fate
Dio
Black Sabbath
The Axis of Perdition

I probably still can listen to (and enjoy) all kinds of metal (except the prog, melodic death, power, etc etc styles), though. Haven't really done so over the past month or so (give or take a few weeks).

There's nowhere I can't reach.

Ayreon, The Black Mages, Cruachan, Dragonforce, Dream Theater, Faith No More, Hollenthon, Mastodon, Megadeth, Metallica, Nightwish, Opeth, Pantera, Slayer, Sonata Arctica, and Stream of Passion.

And some others. Mostly those, though.

If I were to list my favourite metal bands, it would probably be along the lines of:

Black Sabbath
Electric Wizard
Mastodon
Slayer
Corrosion of Conformity
Motörhead
Venom
Anthrax
Death
Meshuggah

First three for their great stoner riffage. Slayer, because they are Slayer. Corrosion of Conformity have a really nice slow grind thing going. Motörhead because Lemmy is Lord God King over metal. Venom made black metal the way it should be: low-fi, dirty, and over the top. Anthrax because they were the most original act of the eighties. Death defined nineties metal for me by the flawless way Chuck Schuldiner fused jazz basslines into their crushing death metal sound (it's called Death metal for a reason). And Meshuggah, because of their ridiculous chops. No one does as interesting stuff with time signatures as Meshuggah anymore.

There's probably a connection to be made there.

I guess so. I respect their technical ability, but haven't been able to like their music.

I do like Ruins very much though.. but then, they're not metal.

I am sure many will hate me with my opinion on this, but there has only been one Metal band that I have hated since I have heard them. I always get questioned about it, but I cannot stand Pantera.

I never liked their music much, and after watching everyone fall in love with them after the guitarist died, just was crazy.

I never cared about Mushuggah either, I mean it's great heavy music. The vocalist is just terrible to me. If there is a bad vocalist in music, it just turns me off to the entire band. I am close minded like that.

Jam it back in, in the dark.

I like Pantera. They're not my favorite heavy metal band by any stretch of the imagination, and I dislike that they helped inspire nu metal, but Vulgar Display of Power will always be a valid album to me.

I never really listened to Pantera all that much, but what I have listened to I have enjoyed.

Pantera is interesting, because they started way back in '83 and released three horrifically awful power metal albums independently, but they really grew as the nineties came around and I really respect their later catalogue. Really though, avoid those first three albums like the plague.


What in hell where they thinking?

My list would have to consist of

Dream Theater
Helloween
Gamma Ray
Blind Guardian
Masterplan (off and on, i haven't really formed a solid opinion on them yet)
Iced Earth
John Petrucci\
Joe Satriani - basically G3
Steve Vai /
Megadeath

those are the ones who stick out most in my mind. I'm starting to like Saxon, and Hammerfall, but i haven't been able to track down any of their albums, so i can't really get into them.

How ya doing, buddy?

I odn't mean to change the subject much, but with that. I watched the DVD of the G3 show and allthough it featured many great guitarist. It was just boring after awhile. The guitar is my favorite instrument, I love watching people do what they can with it, but there was nothing to pull me into the music anyone was playing. It was more like "I can do this, isn't it cool?" rather than "I can play this, isn't it amazing?" if you get that.

I haven't seen Petrucci on that DVD, but the rest I have. I hope he did something a little more amazing than the rest.

So I heard of this (according to others) killer doom/sludge band called Corrupted from Japan. Any good?
