I Mastodon a few years back as an opening act when they were on the Ozzfest tour. After a song and a half it was time to go get beer. Zzz

Tame Impala are very obviously not metal. I don't even say that in a "\m/ Tröö METAL! \m/" way, they're just not metal in the least. They're psychedelic pop. I do like them, though I think they're a bit over-rated. Still looking forward to their new album. Melody's Echo Chamber was also produced by the guy from Tame Impala as well.

Probably I missed some. Don't feel like going and looking at the CD collection right now.
 
2012-08-12 09:05:41 PM
The thing with "hipster" metal isn't that it's different from regular metal. It's that you have all these metal bands and metal fans that have been looked down upon for being a bunch of lame-o douche bags since the beginning. They shrugged it off, cultivated the culture and kept spreading the word. Out of nowhere bands like Mastadon show up and get to be all kinds of cool while the rest of metal culture still gets treated like a bunch of dopes.
 
2012-08-12 09:05:52 PM
If a guy with a beard and black plastic glasses likes it, its probably hipster metal. If a 17 year old kid with long hair and a way too big T-shirt likes it, its probably metal metal.

i hate this kind of nitpicking about hard rock genres. people get so upset when you like a band they don't like. i love all sorts of metal, from more "mainstream" metal bands like lamb of god and trivium, to more black metal stuff like cradle of filth, and i love folk metal bands like alestorm and tyr, and bands like meshuggah and mnemic, who i can't even define. i also listen to breaking benjamin and five finger death punch. and i listen to epica and nightwish. i don't try to define some super narrow genre that only four bands fit into, and then dismiss every other band as terrible.

I like Mastadon. I saw them when they toured with Dethklok two years ago.

I was going to see Dethklok this week, but they cancelled their tour. it sucks, but it also means I have one of the most badass "I didn't go" metal stories.

"Yeah, I was going to see them live. One of the bands on the tour had their frontman thrown into a Czech prison for killing a teenager, though. Pfft."

Kunks!: Mastodon's earlier albums are incredible, Blood Mountain and Leviathan are some of the most intense stuff I've heard.

That being said, The Hunter was a real let down.


I keep hearing it from folks, but it was easily my favorite record of last year. What other band on earth could release a prog-rock concept album about astral projection, complete with 10 minute plus songs with long crazy solos (like a heavy metal version of Pink Floyd on some nasty drugs) and then challenge themselves to do the complete opposite (Short, tightly crafted songs, better vocal performances, short but still powerful solos) and pull it off? "Blasteroid" doesn't sound like anything else I've ever heard, has some of the best riffs I think Mastodon has ever done and I can't name one band that could pull off something similar. YMMV. Also, I highly recommend getting very baked before giving it another listen. It's a fun album, they're just never gonna make Remission or Leviathan again because they're growing and changing as musicians. Some bands grow and develop over time, some put out the same song for 40 years (looking at you AC/DC) but as long as they do what they do well, I say rock on.

Some bands grow and develop over time, some put out the same song for 40 years (looking at you AC/DC) but as long as they do what they do well, I say rock on.


That's a bit of what I hated about The Hunter. Well, not so much hated but just found boring. Their earlier albums were very heavy and had some great moments. Crack the Skye had some awesome heavy moments but also mixed in a lot of progressive sounds. The Hunter abandoned the Progressive sound but didn't pick up the heaviness of their earlier albums. So instead it sounded like generic hard rock.

Listening to Horna, reading this thread while on my commute to work. Reminds me that I don't like "beard metal". Someone mentioned liturgy above. I gave their recent album a listen the other day. Not great. I'll take Blut Aus Nord any day.

I remember seeing Mastodon for the first time at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis when they were on their first go around along with Bongzilla and High on Fire, 2002 maybe? Never heard them before that and holy shiat, they dominated that night. Back then I didn't think anything would top H.O.F.

All the Om stuff is great. Al definitely knows how to continue the trance to follow the smoke to the riff filled land of the stoner caravan. And I don't even think he does drugs anymore.

I like Sym X, but considering the production values of some of the other bands with real studio orchestras, I wish they'd drop the MIDI already. Still good stuff, but a bit too much at times.

Clutch isn't a metal band...where is the fail?

also, they certainly don't play hardcore.

I have really tried to like Mastodon, but there's something missing there, for me. I like a couple songs, but...I don't know. I won't knock them though, because at least they are playing instruments. Maybe they're a band that's much better live?

I keed. Better than Raw was the first metal album I ever bought. Followed by Something Wicked this way Comes by Iced Earth. I think I have half of Helloween's catalog now. Manowar was another one of my early purchases. Kings of Metal was bad ass.

Love metal snob conversations. I'm all about it. Avowed metal head: saw Kiss and Judas Priest when I was in the 3rd grade.

But if it moves you, listen to it. Some will sneer. I get sneered at for my choices, but that doesn't stop me from listening.

Life long, die hard, genre crossing metal fan here. I love death, grind, porn, hair, glam, pretty much any metal.

Mastodon suck. HARD. I tried to like them. I have the records. Have listened to them several times.

The only thing they did that I actually sort of like is that song at the beginning of the Aqua Teen movie. If you guys like them, that's cool, whatever, but good lord, there is just nothing there to enjoy.

My metal friends pretty much agree. In fact I have not met a real human in person that claims to like them.

/hmmm.

I was kind of disappointed in the new album. Granted, previous albums could be a bit samey, yet consistently interesting. Advaitic Songs just sounds a little too contrived and cheesy to me.

I would also like to point out that the dude who wrote this is a weird farker. He is venhemetly anti-racism, yet maintains that he's a white supremacist. I have no idea what sort of mental gymnastics his mind must perform to maintain those thoughts.

Oh, leave me to the over the top hair metal that is DragonForce. Just because I enjoy their stuff doesn't mean I take them seriously. You can think something's awesome and still be amused as hell by it (how many 5 hour energies do they pound before a show? really?).

saintstryfe: Ah, the Forget of Ponies has once again gifted me - I had not heard Symphony X before, and they have landed firmly in my Savatage-loving heart.

God bless you, citizen.


Personally? I recommend the Accolades (I and II), Wicked (my hands down favorite of their shorter songs), Odyssey, and Set the World on Fire, if you haven't heard them.

I seriously got to hear Symphony X play Odyssey IN A FREAKING BAR IN DETROIT. Oh my god. Just... just stunning.

bhcompy: I like Sym X, but considering the production values of some of the other bands with real studio orchestras, I wish they'd drop the MIDI already. Still good stuff, but a bit too much at times.

...True. For actual orchestra backup I think Nightwish brings the WIN a bit more. But Symphony X brings an EPIC to their stuff you know?

What's great about metal music is I recognize, like, four or five of those bands but because of the ones I recognize I know they all must be AWESOME.

Ringshadow, at the moment I'm listening to a recent purchase by a band called Pythia. Sounds a bit like Dragonforce, if Tarja Turunen took over as lead singer. British band. Pretty good.
