Been a few years, and I didn’t want to revive the old thread.

This is for anyone who loves metal or wants to explore other subgenres of it.

Death, Thrash, Deathcore, Black, Symphonic, Viking, Technical (my fav), hardcore punk, or just simply some mainstream arena metal. I’ve become more of a purist, but I WILL NOT be an elitist or snob. And I don’t want that in this thread please.

Join me!

Absolutely love Gojira. Probably one hell of a live performance with both bands having such a good reputation for shows.
Hell yea never seen Gojira but I like their music. Seen Slipknot a bunch. During their come up back in the day I felt bad for bands that had to go on after them. A lot of people don’t remember, but they came out with such intensity when hopped on the scene.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on the slipknot situation?

I feel bad for Chris if it’s true Corey and clown have been getting royalties from other slipknot ventures without him knowing about them

But at the same time, surely the rest of the band would be pissed?


Very strange indeed


Looking forward to the new wage war album though

You are 100% correct. And I’ve always noticed the same exact thing. Musicians that like rock and metal will always gravitate to both Tech and Progressive, which I of course adore. Big admitted Dream Theater fan too

I was a serious drummer for many years. Even got a pass and did drum line all 4 years in high school, every extra curricular percussion group and several bands in my 20’s. Even a couple churches down the road.

You?

Hard to tell on the Slipknot thing. Basically if they are being sneaky that’s messed up, but like if they are running the business aspect and he isn’t helping I don’t know I care. Love their newer single.

Love the Wage War singers clear throat thing he does

That’s awesome, and Yessir. Also a brother of the groove as I play Bass. Used to play in bands and do little clubs in Philly in my late teens/early twenties. Never was in a band that had “it” but it was a blast though. I still play. One of the best things I ever decided to do in life.

As Jaco Pastorius would say “women, children, and rhythm section first” lol

NOW we are talking!
I’m fairly certain I listened to all of Ghost Reveries and Blackwater Park from Opeth this last month more than twice...
Amon I go through kicks and rock typically With Oden on Our Side and my fav Deceiver of the Gods.

I’ll be going tonight \m/
Nice! I’ve seen them 4 times. 2017 was the most recent with The Faceless, Dying Fetus, and Rings of Saturn. Origin was there too. Actually like 8 other bands were there but those were the main ones I went to see. First time I saw BDM was 2005 at Sounds of the Underground tour. Loved them since Unhallowed in 2002/2003

I passed on BTBAM. Was going to go but would have had to go solo so I skipped it. I’ve actually never seen them and that bums me out as a fan.

I WILL be seeing Archspire, Inferi and Virvum next month.
Obscura is very high on my list to see too.

I’m a bit of a tech-death nut.

Inferi is great. I’ll check out archspire and virvum.

You like spawn of possession?

I read some of you guys play. Awesome. I play guitar and used to be in a couple of bands and a death metal band but nothing ever came from it haha.

They are one of the few that’s almost as fast as Origin.
I saw Origin at Summer Slaughter in 17.
Gawd they are nuts.
I’ve seen them a couple of times as well. Summer slaughter ‘17 sounds about right the last time i saw them. In Los angeles nokia theater. So sick.

Ya I had one friend that almost got some halfway decent gigs with a death metal outfit just out of high school but they were all just a bunch of potheads.
Musicians seem to gravitate to complicated and aggressive music.

I cant get down with any of their newer stuff, but love this album
Ya! This just reminded me, CJ did a collaborative single on the awesomely funny Gay Deathcore supergroup: BROJOB.

It is funny as hell for 5 minutes and shows these guys have a great sense of humor.

Lol thats great. Theyve got a very valid point. All these metal dudes act so hard and try to maintain this toughguy image, very over the top sometimes

Love the blast beats and drums, technical all around. Also like the slower/clear vocals if that makes sense.
Ya. I enjoy them all around. You want another sick album if you’re in somewhat of a tech mood:





Virvum - Illuminance is the best Prog/Tech death metal album ever no matter how good anything else is.
Well, I have like 10 more, The Faceless Autotheism and Necrophagist Epitaph come right to the top of my head.

Cool thread.
My current favorites are Neurotech, Omnium Gatherum, Alcest, and Primal Fear. The days of straight death and black metal for me are long over. lol

Alcest’s 2016 album was nominated for album of the year Metal Injection I think...

Dude....
The one with Archspire and Virvum?
Uh ya. That’s the only show I’m going to this year. It’s on May 12th here in Phoenix.

Virvum Illuminance is the most finely crafted tech-death album in 10 years. Hands down.
Inferi was a bonus for me bc I’ve been dying to see Arch and Virvum for 3 years.
