Marquis de Sod: Not a bad list, all things considered


Wait, wait, don't tell me...

When it comes to obsessing over very obscure acts and subgenres, EDM fans and hipsters have nothing on metalheads

ChubbyTiger: whizbangthedirtfarmer: Boudyro: I must be getting old. Because I really want to like modern metal. But it seems like more often than not I listen to a song, and I'm digging the riff, I'm feeling the beat, my head starts to bang, and then some asshole comes along and tries to deep throat the mic while someone shoves a telephone pole up his ass.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat.  I grew up listening to Emperor, Immortal, Paradise Lost, Samael, My Dying Bride, etc., etc.  I just can't seem to find new metal nowadays that doesn't seem to be pale imitations, or at least can put together a complete or near-complete album.  Every once in a while, I'll come across a good single, but it's rare that I find a decent album, and lord knows, I've tried: I've picked a lot of FARK recommendations: Uncle Acid, Orange Goblin, Carach Angren, and so on, but none of them seem to make me want to keep listening beyond a few tracks.  It's usually where they go with blast beats for, well, almost the entire song, or the lead singer starts to, apparently, have a heart attack.

Do you like female vocalists? Nightwish, Delain, and Within Temptation are all good. I prefer power and symphonic metal, partially because I hate the cookie monster thing. Rhapsody, Lacuna Coil, Tyr, etc. I've also really started to love Sabaton, lately. I suppose they're power metal.

/not the heaviest stuff in the world, but good


There are more and more female vocalists in other genres. In fact my favorite niche lately has been female fronted  doomy stoner metal bands like Alunah, Black Moth, Royal Thunder and Serpentcult. Which pretty much goes to show that metal is deep enough to scratch pretty much any itch even if the bands that get all the press and critical acclaim aren't your jam.

And for  Boudyro if you're just craving old fashioned metal there are retro bands like The Sword, Witchcraft, and Wolfmother that are new butpretty much sound like they stepped out of the 70's.

Oh, I just heard Wolfmother recently. The one song I heard was fun. I should have been more specific and said female clean vocals. I really have a thing for semi-operatic vocals with metal backing. But, like you said, whatever your itch.

For done other itches, Five Finger Death Punch or Psychostick (for laughs). Oh hell, metal is just a fun genre.

/anyone who uses the old and tired "cookie monster" rhetoric is about the poseuriest poseur attempting to claim ranks within the metal brotherhood. I listen to stuff from glam to death / black. Just stop it. It's insanely lame and shows how far you are away from the heart of metal (cathartic aggression). Playing with scales all day long instead of settling for hooks, and doodling / noodling the drum tempo like a bunch of jazz hipsters may impress your cohort but it's certainly not "more metal". Speaking personally, I find power metal to be trite and so rife with derivative fantasy references as to be meaningless music, particularly since it is often castrated of the aggression which is the keystone of good metal.

But when people talk about it around me, I say whatever positive things I can about their music.

+1 for The Sword, The Devil's Blood. Also [strongly] recommend -
"Jess and the Ancient Ones". Take a listen to "Sulfur Giants" and "Come Crimson Death".
"Jex Thoth" , example "Keep Your Weeds" and the "Equinox Suite".

No, I don't.  I can rarely stomach female vocalists in almost any genre, but in metal they tend to sound like their whining rather than singing.  That, and I'm pretty certain that most female lead singers in metal groups are there to be all sexy and hot and whatnot.   I think the only groups I listen to with female vocalists are Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies, and, even then, in small doses.  Maybe it's just me.

I agree with that problem with a lot of bands.  But I like the very limited number good ones.  I think it might be hard for groups to get the best female singers into the genre and they might have a hard time integrating into the group to the point of being a creative influence in the sound and living the lifestyle for the long term (especially if they want to be mothers).

One group that I would recommend that was actually started by the female lead singer is To-Mera.

Not even sure I've heard 10 new metal albums this year, most purchases were older.

I did listen to Sunbather briefly.... if that's an indicator for what constitutes 'good' this year, I haven't missed anything.

Sorry if i offended. The fact that I generally dislike it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. To each their own. I meant it as a friendly poke. I mean, I like songs about elves, Nordic gods, magic swords, etc. I'm hardly in a position to complain about your taste. :)

None of it is "more" metal. Except for Lemmy.

Nope, but i'm surprised I haven't heard of them. According to Wikipedia they formed while I was in high school. I guess my idea of metal is early Sabbath, BOC & The Cult. My music preferences have shifted in my old age. Hell, I thought i'd neverlisten to country but now I do. Of course my definition of "country" varies like well, heavy metal.
 
2014-01-01 11:22:55 PM
Not a bad list; there were a few there I liked and hadn't heard yet.

My favorite album of 2013 was:

Stone Magnum - From Time... To Eternity (traditional/doom)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvxv-eT7A_0

And five runners up in no particular order -

Cultes des Ghoules - Henbane (black)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN_kpMmOexc

Inquisition - Obscure Verses for the Multiverse (black)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q98qulfxXcs

Valkyrja - The Antagonist's Fire (black)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6t-yLPP0Q

Slaughterday - Nightmare Vortex (death)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g7QCgMm3II

Tyrants Blood - Into the Kingdom of Graves (black/death)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TohFsvWl10k


And finally, two of my favorite songs (both from EPs):

Jess and the Ancient Ones - Astral Sabbat (psychedelic)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hgWxb1bXkE

Arkham Witch - Hammerstorm (traditional)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqW_a7kn9aI

So, the Jucifer and SubRosa tracks are great. I'm gonna have to check out that Satan album when I can blast it while going down the road. Just seems like fun. Also, I remember Extol when I went through my Christian phase. They were good then and they're pretty good now. Not bad.

The rest, though....I have a friend who is making a record on his computer at home with cheap equipment and it sounds ten times better than some of these. Why do you want to release something that just sounds sub par? I'm not saying make it sound like a million dollar recording, but when it sounds like it was recorded by the weird guy who wants to record your band with the 4 track he got for Christmas then you should rethink who does your recordings. Yes, I had a guy who wanted to record one of my old bands that way. Only $200 a song!

The new Ghost album is fan-friggin'-tastic. I have been listening to it for a while now and have been making everyone else listen. New Kylesa is great also.
Mentioning the new KsE, though...yeah....good stuff.

First time I've seen someone else on fark mention them. LOVE them, though I will say they can be a bit out there stylistically and that might turn some people off. It seems things aren't going so well for them since their latest album last year though, did they ever find a new drummer? I don't recall them ever announcing it but their website says something about making new music, so fingers crossed I guess.

On the female side make sure you include Lacuna Coil, but you have a great start there...


I would also recommend Diablo Swing Orchestra if you like either operatic female vocalists. Their 2012 album 'Pandora's Piñata' is awesome.

Because fark you, that's why.

It's not exactly difficult to figure out why something called metalcore is filed under metal. It falls under the rather large umbrella of "metal"
Using your logic death metal, black metal etc. wouldn't be listed as metal, they'd be listed in their own category.

All the labels for the various branches of metal are getting tiresome.

death--> metal
black--> metal
thrash--> metal

metal-->core

modifiers come before the root.

Metalcore is core , not metal.

English 101, and Venn 101, how the fark do they work?  And what sad sack school pumped you at as a "graduate" ?

Leader O'Cola: Dingleberry Dickwad: Leader O'Cola: CSM101: While not strictly a "Metal" album, it's more Metalcore, it should be on the list.

///Adam is hilarious when talking to the crowd.


so something that you admit isn't metal should be on a list about metal?

why not include Miley, One Direction, Bieber, jazz, dubstep, or anything else that also isn't metal ?
 
Because fark you, that's why.

It's not exactly difficult to figure out why something called metalcore is filed under metal. It falls under the rather large umbrella of "metal"
Using your logic death metal, black metal etc. wouldn't be listed as metal, they'd be listed in their own category.

Subgenres are serious business!

Still can't understand why so many mammals hate sub-genres

Hi, let me introduce you to black metal, it's been around since the mid-80s.

Yeah, back in the 80's and into the 90's it was the only way to record black metal. It was expensive to book a decent studio and it added to the evilness. You can get a great recording at the home for cheap, so why would you want to still make it sound like it was recorded on an old 4 track with a cheap Wal-Mart mic. I'm not saying it should be super polished, but I'd like to be able to differentiate the instruments from one another.

I really like Jucifer and they're pretty lo-fi, but you can still hear everything fine and you can actually feel some bass in there. It's not a trebly mess.
