Metal!!!
« on: February 19, 2008, 12:08:17 am »
I have noticed that there are a fair number of members who enjoy Metal and it's sub genres. So why not make a topic about metal and post links so that we metal lovers can express our tastes and discover new music.

Some guidelines for this to be a clean thread:


1. If you don't like metal, don't post and go to another topic.
2. Try to include few things about the song like band name and any streaming services (like youtube) are encouraged so that the rest of us can listen to that song as well.
3. As for youtube and alike, try to post original music video if it exists, otherwise you may find an AMV or just a song with a picture (maybe with lyrics?).
4. Finally we all like metal here, no need to flame each other for every small difference (because one likes Blackened death metal and other melodic black meta  ::))
5. I have some faith in our mods, so don't go off topic and start talking about political issues or church burnings. This thread is about music


Ok I go first. I love death/black/viking metal as well as I enjoy power/heavy metal. So to mention some of my favourite bands and my fav songs they made.

Amon Amarth - Swedish  Melodic death/viking metal. The first one describes their music style, the second describes their theme and lyrics.

Runes to my memory (check out that crazy synchronized windmilling  ;D)
Death In Fire
The Pursuit of Vikings
Under The Northern Star (my fav)
Gods Of War Arise (love those brutal lyrics)

There are many more Amon Amarth songs that I really like, but they are for you to discover  ;)

Dark Tranquility - Another Swedish melodic metal band. Has really beautiful songs.

Monochromatic Stains (great song, weird video)
Freecard (one of my favs)
No One (no it's not "exposure", someone named it wrong, didn't find exposure btw)

Einherjer - Norwegian viking metal. Their songs have different styles, enjoy whatever style you like.

Ironbound (I rolfed first time i saw that video)
Hammar Haus (Reduced sound  >:(, norwegian lyrics, one of my favs)
Doomfaring

So many more, but unable to find on the net (tell me if there is a streaming service for mp3)

Enslaved - Norwegian viking black metal. This one really keeps the black metal style.

Isa (my fav)
Path to Vanir
Essence
Havenless

In Flames -Yet another Swedish melodic death metal band. They make kickass songs, but my opinion is that their latest albums appeal more to mainstream, in other words - sellouts.

Trigger
Satellites and Astronauts
Touch of Red
Pinball Map

Satyricon - Norwegian Black metal band..... and of course sellouts as well, appealing mainstream made them do black'n'roll. Anyway some early songs:

Mother North (a fucking masterpiece... seriously)
Du som hater gud (bad sound quality, translation: you who hate god, the song is awesome though)
Fuel For Hatred

I may add more later, I hope too see many good music videos and comments by then  ;)

I don't care much for music vids, so I'll only link to the Myspace pages.

Primordial - excellent Irish Black/Pagan/Folk hybrid. They've been consistent throughout the years yet managed to improve

http://www.myspace.com/fallentoruin

Moonsorrow - often mentioned as the finnish Primordial

http://www.myspace.com/moonsorrowofficial

Taake - started as a fairly middle-of-the-road one-man black metal project but improved vastly, Doesdkvad is truly a gem

http://www.myspace.com/tnbmtaake

Behemoth - solid polish death metal

http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=EOze9QuX-7w
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=_sNY-2Hd4Dw

Decapitated - more polish death metal
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=kIB9mSbD67k
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=qfRGF-MWYsE

Zyklon - norvegian black/death hybrid

http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvs4UDNh8s0
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=pTUe2XLeUyc

Amoral - not groundbreaking but still well done

Not really my cup of tea, I'm more into the post-hardcore stuff .... things like Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, Cult of Luna and the likes.

About Dragonforce, there are two things that can be seen from the surface of the moon : the Great Wall of China and Herman Li's hair  ;D

I don't personally have these lowlands or doomed to walk the earth, haven't downloaded some music in ages for the moment so I'm way behind on new albums to all bands I listen to.

Metal up your ass! \m/

My tastes vary a lot. I'm a die hard fan of Iron Maiden and Metallica (the usual ones :D ), and depending on the mood i also like Arch Enemy, Kreator, Slayer, Mercyful Fate and the great Judas Priest ( their new album is fecking awsome! ). Also, I'm, a big fan of Moonspell ( a band from my country, Portugal :D ).

Arch Enemy:
These dudes create the biggest neck pains :D great guitar tone and the drummer is insane!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9AcG0glVu4 - Nemesis from the album Doomsday Machine.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJERR6xSJUk - I am legend / Out for blood

Moonspell:
I love their uniqueness.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGBs5pwiT5Q&feature=related - Vampiria from Wolfheart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6EjQZujthI - Full moon madness from Irreligious

Judas Priest:
The gods of heavy metal!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRF-3yG8D30 - Hellrider from Angel of Retribution ( this song is absolutely godlike! )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opyq6-7_GR8 - Demonizer from Angel of Retribution

Iron Maiden are the classic. I mean they should make a fucking religion, there are few bands who have made a bigger quantity of really great songs.

STAM1NA - kadonneet kolme sanaa (the lost three words(or something like that))

Metal is not discriminated here as much and therefore it's widely enjoyable and not an underground style like in many other countries. Oh, and most of my schoolmates who were playing instruments, played bass guitar  :-\

Nighthog: sounds like progressive metal. Not bad among it's genre.

Sonata Arctica

Another finnish group. I like my finnish metal groups :P
These ones sing in english though.

Sonata Arctica - Dont Say A Word
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2SGIzjgXzI

Sonata Arcita - Wolf and Raven
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pioL1uaGJ4M

Sonata Arctica - Kingdom For A Heart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGz1f0mngsQ

Listened to a few Sonata Arctica songs about a year ago (I was in my power metal period)

I like Picturing the Past. Got to love those guitar riffs.

Sounds more or less like a mix of metalcore, thrash and a heavier Sentenced. Though it's not bad it don't really dig the genre anymore, same goes for most powermetal (at least the european brand). Traditionnal metal has taken a step back too in my playlist.

Here's a bit of Isis : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=-x7Ez7yCyA8

and some Cult of Luna : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=j6vv6CKtRWY&feature=related

with Neurosis on top : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=xEVyDjxsUrk&feature=related

About the same for me ... that's a really, really long time ago

a bit of Borknagar, since you like Enslaved you might give it a try ... if you didn't already

PS : I just noticed how much norvegian metal I have in my collection, probably has something to with my delve into black metal. I still can't decide whose clean vocals I favor, Vintersorg, Garm, Lazare, Vortex ... they all sound unique, has it something to do with the norvegian accent ?

Vintersorg - Swedish (calling it a Norwegian accent would really offend swedes, so be careful)


I liked Solefald, I will probably download it next.


Ah... what a hell, let's throw in a black metal classics:
