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