FeedTheCollapse: rudemix: Not sure if they are Hipster metal or not but if you haven't heard Red Fang or Tame Impala

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.


Not familiar with Red Fang, though.


Awesome band with a great sense of humor - here's what you're missing:

MoronLessOff: bhcompy: sotua: Ringshadow: Metal? Ohhhh *rubs hands together*

My hot list:
Opeth, Dream Theater, Iced Earth, Symphony X, Nightwish, Circus Maximus, Dream Evil, King Diamond, Orphaned Land, Lacuna Coil, UnSun, Nemesea, Dragonforce, Within Temptation, Avantasia.

Probably I missed some. Don't feel like going and looking at the CD collection right now.

Dragonforce is the Hannah Montana of metal.

No, Dragonforce is the Spinal Tap of power metal.

No, Dragon Force is one of the best games ever.


No, Dragonforce is the band for folks too young to know who Helloween was.

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.

TheOriginalEd: The Sex Machineguns are the best metal band you never heard of.

youtube link, pops, youre welcome.


I have no idea what he's saying and I couldn't care less. Great song. Reminds me of this Priest classic.

You can't have REAL metal without gauntlets...

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."

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.

Witchyman: Metal died with Peter Steele.


I would say that the spirit of metal died with Peter.

As much as its fans like to subdivide the genre into a million different types, I think most metal could legitimately be called hipster metal.

ZAZ: True metal sounds like metal even if you play it on the fruitiest of fruity Casio keyboards

Folk-rocker Al Stewart describes his song "Antarctica" as metal even when played on an acoustic guitar.


Aha Al Stewart in a metal thread. Unrelated but funny: Apparently the guy who plays Black Dynamite's favorite song is Year of The Cat, to the point that he learned it on piano, and plays it to his friends when they come over.

Also, for you metalheads:

bhcompy: This guy/referenced guy is a cockfag. Edguy is boss. Yea, they rip off DLR Van Halen style, but who cares? It's for fun and it's great. 80s hair metal does not sound like metal on a Casio keyboard, but that's the point. It's Glam, not freaking Finntroll.


hair metal isn't metal, you dolt.

logistic: Mastadon owned my face in concert multiple times. Strangely enough, I have a weird mutation where I am able to like more than one genre. Isis, Faith no More, Queensryche, Pelican, Red Sparrows and Anthrax (a la Sound of White Noise) are all farking awesome.
