I forgot how much this song (and the cover!) rules...

My sister's favorite part of the video was Mike Muir saying, "You think it's so funny...? Laugh at this!"

Great solo by Rocky George -- technical, intense, and lyrical.

Re: The Official METAL! Thread- Metalcore, Thrash, Progressive, Death, and MORE

After really liking the newish Wolves in the Throne Room album, I spent the weekend listening to vintage Norwegian black metal, most of which was new to me. If Varg Vikernes weren't a violent racist dickweed, I could feel better about myself for liking a lot of his pre-prison stuff. It helps that I can't understand his lyrics.

I'd say my favorite two albums I listened to were Burzum's "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" (which also may have the coolest metal album cover ever) and Emperor's "Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk". Mayhem's relatively recent "Ordo ad Chao" isn't too shabby either. I threw in Amon Amarth's (non-BM) "Twilight of the Thundergod" as a palate clenser. I love those ridiculous songs about longboats and epic Norsk battles.

Sidenote, not sure if it's been mentioned, but a film about the early ninties Norwegian black metal scene is being made. It's based on "Lords of Chaos", which is a controversial book (to say the least). They signed some guy from "Twilight" to play Vikernes. Wha?

Who cares? I listen to a lot of NSBM.. and I'm a Jew. If the music is good, I could care less if the musicians are racist.

I LOVE "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" but IMO "Filosofem" is better. If you wanted to complete the Black Metal awesomeness you should have finished up with any one of Ulver's Black Metal Trilogy.

Have you guys heard Slaughter of the Bluegrass?

They do bluegrass covers of death metal songs. So far they've released 2:

Dark Tranquillity's Punish My Heaven

The original:


At the Gate's Blinded by Fear

The original:

Re: The Official METAL! Thread- Metalcore, Thrash, Progressive, Death, and MORE

Forgive me if this is sounds strange, but why does an entire genre, abound with dozens of subgenres, have a single solitary thread? Is it that much of an undesired and distasteful outlier that it can only relegated to it's own small and cramped corner? Because being the big metal fan I am, I was excited to see a metal thread, but then greatly disheartened to see the jumbled and aimless cluster that it is on the inside. Are there not enough bands and releases worthy of discussion, or are the metal fans just really that much of a minority?

that and this is a dvd forum.

I'd be down for a "official black/death/thrash/speed" thread and let the rest of the band that don't "fit" into another thread....but that's just me.

Personally, I feel like this Music Forum is so dead most of the time that I'd like to see more individual threads popping up.

I would make threads but if you read through some other threads here like the "What Are You Listening To?" you quickly realize any thread I create will most likely be buried underneath 14 crappy indie-rock threads.

eh it depends on the band imo. If i were to create say a thread on the new Winds of Plague (CD is great imo), it would either get 'who' or 'people listen to this shit' type of posts. But yeah, the new mastodon, new lamb of god, and i think the new slayer got their own threads.

Seeing as how I don't listen to any of the bands you mention, it's exactly the reason I've refrained from starting any threads. Mine would have been about Artillery's new record (which is awesome), the new Destroyer 666 and so on. But I'm guessing being the only person posting in a thread you created.. sucks.

Totally agree. I love metal and I post on other forums about it. But yea most people on here would be like who? or what the hell is this shit? I rarely stop by the music portion of this forum because of this, but occasionally I'll drop a comment or two.

It wouldn't.

I've always wondered why not only is Metalcore the first genre named in the title but Power and Black were left out..

I've always wondered if metalcore is just the bands that include breakdowns in their songs, or also does it include the whole screaming/growling/shouting vocals too

Check how many metal threads there are in this forum. Then, check how often this thread is posted in. That's probably why there is only one thread.

Actually, before this thread was opened, there were quite a few metal threads. Someone even made the comment that there seemed to be more fans of metal than any other genre on this forum. Then, this thread was opened, and new threads stopped.

Deathcore (which more often than not is all core and little to no death metal) is the label for all the bands who think that breakdowns are br0000tal1!!1 and usually use pig vocals with a mixture of clean singing. So they kind of go hand in hand.

See: Job For A Cowboy, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying and to a slightly lesser extent, Shadow's Fall.

uh, killswitch and shadows fall are in no way close to deathcore. The bands you listed are metalcore. Deathcore is more like old Job For a Cowboy (with their new stuff, they ditched the breakdowns and the pig squeels), suicide silence, winds of plauge.
This is deathcore (you may want to plug your ears, and or be ready to hit the mute/X button

Deathcore is a sub-genre of Metalcore. Killswitch, Darkest Hour and SF are Metalcore while JFAC (both old AND new), The Red Chord, BMTH are deathcore. Both feature a nauseating amount of breakdowns.

Metalcore = Hardcore Punk and Metal fusion.
Deathcore = Metalcore with Death Metal fusion.
