I do like Soilwork, Figure No. 5 has some anthems. Should get some more of their albums, my library is lacking of their stuff. Also, as for synths, sometimes they're the trick to making it sound amazing, like Strapping Young Lad or Between the Buried and Me. There is a limit, of course: can't go full Dream Theater.

Haha yeah, Dream Theater take it way too far most of the time. I didn't mind some of Rudess' work on Octavarium though. Train of Thought is a pretty great album too, but yeah the other stuff is a little too cheesy even for me!

Yeah see that's the thing; sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in the universe who is ok with synth music infiltrating metal

 

Synths and metal? How about some Genghis Tron?

I really like Soilwork - it's cheesy as fuck sometimes though. But I agree, it's so crisp in the production.

 

 

It's cheesy but in a good way.


Early In Flames I love too...now they are well shit.

Pretty sure I mentioned it already, but I gotta bring it up again... the latest Elder album is pretty fucking great, little more proggy than Dead Roots Stirring, but damn it's got some great riffs and leads

Quoting to remind me to listen to this album.

I particularly like this Soilwork tune, that chorus gets me every time

I suspect they're Kerrang material, but I've been obsessed with Karnivool since I saw them a few years back. Reminds me of Tool but this resonates more deeply to me.

Also I re-ripped this excellent ep from Ephel Duath (RIP), good shit, I like the metal growls following the guitars closely.

Definite shout outs to Genghis Tron as well. I love this track especially (less metal, more electronic, but fuckin great).

lol Nile is so fucking ridiculous. That track at least has a somewhat followable structure, but I remember borrowing one of their albums from a friend and it just sounded like a joke, everything was impossible 700bpm blast beats all the way

 

edit: this track

http://youtu.be/lCWXiT1iiWY

 

It just gets to a point where it's not even heavy/brutal anymore haha.. and hey, I like Necrophagist

haha, I wouldn't compare the two, really. Hey, I like melodic breakdowns as much as I like growls, what are you gonna do about it

 

I'm into my fair share of super fast stuff e.g. Cattle Decapitation, Necrophagist, etc but that Nile album really didn't do it for me. Is there a better start for them? I like blast beats but when they're pointlessly fast it kinda ruins it.. makes Cannibal Corpse sound like a doom metal band in comparison
