I've got it in my queue but I've heard less than desirable things, so I'm not in any rush..

I must be getting old. Most the bands posted in this thread I've either never heard of, or could never listen to even a full song of.

The Immortal stuff is classic though. That should be filed with comedy albums.

I agree with you. I read some of the bands on here and see those clips and I think what the hell is this? Sorry I don't mean to insult anyone on this thread, but I just don't get most of this stuff anymore from the new bands. My tastes follow the late 60's to the 90's. Espescially the NWOBHM from the 80's. Although there are a couple good acts out there from todays lot, just not enough to keep me interested.
I'm not just getting old, I am old. But it's not that bad. I'll just throw on some old Motorhead,Annihilator,Trouble,Saxon, Savatage add in some older Thin Lizzy, Led Zep, UFO from the70- 90's mix it together and everything will be alright.

I listen to a lot of that too, but I also like stuff like Opeth, Devin Townsend, In Flames, Scar Symmetry, and other modern acts that actually have musical talent. When it gets so fast, repetitive, and growly, its just not even music anymore.

I'm more partial to the prog/power bands of today like Kamelot, Hammerfall, Symphony X, Vanden Plas, Edguy, Arjen Lucassen, and stuff like that.

I do have some Hammerfall that I like. I saw a Dragonforce video a while back that I liked also, so I may try them out. There are bands out there from today that either I like or would atleast try out. Maybe I should recant some of my statements on some of today's bands. I just draw the line with the growling vocals.

You shouldn't. I was like that at first, but some growling/grunting is good. Check out Opeth. Great mix of soft, melodic music/vocals and heavy/growling.

Don't waste too much time and effort on Dragonforce. They've got some decent stuff, but if you've heard one song, you've heard them all. Seriously, watch this:

Which again demonstrates my point about Dragonforce above.

Brother in law and I swapped some album suggestions...he showed me some work by "Between the Buried and Me"....words cannot described how great these guys are. Seriously. The pinnacle of progressive metal/rock. So unusually perfect. One of the breakdowns goes into a redneck yelling "What the hell?!" followed by a dueling banjo solo back into the breakdown.

Seriously, the awesomeness that is BTBAM cannot be confined by a genre, they are their own. Simply amazing stuff...

Check out their latest album, "Colors" to witness the lovechild of Opeth and Rush.

Another vote for that album for it's mixture of experimental and heaviness.

the new vid from In This Moment. Fans of 'Beautiful Tragady' will prob not like the new direction the band went in for their newest album, as apparently its mostly more hard rock/trad. metal, then the shout sing metalcore stuff that they used to do.

IN THIS MOMENT - "Forever" (NEW VIDEO)
<object width="425px" height="360px" ><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/><param name="movie" value="http://mediaservices.myspace.com/services/media/embed.aspx/m=43338756,t=1,mt=video,searchID=f546a1b9-a694-4a9c-8f3a-79e5ed620d2f,primarycolor=,secondarycolor="/><embed src="http://mediaservices.myspace.com/services/media/embed.aspx/m=43338756,t=1,mt=video,searchID=f546a1b9-a694-4a9c-8f3a-79e5ed620d2f,primarycolor=,secondarycolor=" width="425" height="360" allowFullScreen="true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" /></object>
and for comparison, here's my fave track off 'tragady'

Well, I finally found some death metal I can tolerate. I'm listening to Dimmu Borgir's "Death Cult Armageddon", and it's actually pretty good. The vocals are really all over the place, but they seem to work with the music. He did sound like Popeye a few times, which I found pretty amusing, but it's much better than I expected.

Dimmu is technically "black metal," but I'm glad you are enjoying it. check out the breakdown in the song Cataclysm Children. Pretty badass. The drums on this album are terriffic.

Any pegan metal fans? if not check this out
Eluveitie Inis Mona (yes that is a flute and a violin with death metal vocals)

cool stuff if your looking for something different. Whats amusing (to me anyways) is that Eluveitie is currently touring with Kataklysm and Dying Fetus which are more traditional death metal bands, so it be funny to see peoples reactions to a band with baghpipes and a violin.

for those interested, Relapse records has just released a 9 LP Mastodon box set. It's on 180 gram vinyl. only 1000 made. and only $240! I have a feeling these will be on ebay for double that. still, $240 is pretty nuts for a bunch of plastic.

Candiria's "Kiss The Lie" has finally been released. I believe the only legitimate place to get it is www.emusic.com. They do give you a free 50 tracks for signing up though. I sampled the album quickly, and it sounds pretty good from the little bit I heard.

I'm pretty damn surprised this was finally released, since it was completed in 2006 and sounded like the record label was never going to release it. I guess they decided digital distribution would cost them very little so it was worth doing.

They also have some new stuff coming:
First off, at the end of this year the first of a 4 volume series of remix/interpretations 12" LP's will be released on my own label, Rising Pulse records. This series will be called Toying With The Insanities. With contributions from artists such as Dub Trio, Dalek, Kayo Dot, Pole, Navicon Torture Technologies, Friendly Bears, Rocky (Fuckin!!!) George... yeah, thats right, Rocky George from Suicidal Tendencies.
Sounds like they are also possibly going to do some new recordings. About fucking time!

That set looks badass. Replase released all the Atheist albums on vinyl in 2005 and I snagged that one for a call $40. I know those sets were numbered as well, but I don't recall how many. I will have to check that one out when I get home.

I've heard every Metallica and Megadeth song a million times. I've actually been looking for something new to get into. But nothing I hear compares to them. I'm just not impressed by other bands' rhythm work or their solos. Metallica and Megadeth songs have personality and they build in intensity. Everything else I've heard is just monotonous and boring. And singers who sound like cookie monster are a joke. Oh well, I guess I'll keep looking.
