Metal Appreciation Thread!

great thread; it actually got me back into listening to metal a few months ago, and got me into doom metal which i had never really explored before. I've been on a heavier streak lately:

 

Dragged into Sunlight - Hatred for Mankind is an amazingly brutal doomy, sludgy, deathy album. Awesome, awesome stuff.

Their newer album Widowmaker is a bit different and does not have the same intensity, but it has grown on me:

Keeping with the sludge/doom/death theme is Lord Mantis - Pervertor. Their newer album Death Mask has a few gems on it including the title track and Negative Birth, but I prefer the first record:

Along the same lines is Coffinworm:

And finally, Leviathan - Scar Sighted. Black metal, nice atmosphere and an album with good flow. Another one that grew on me.

^All damn good bands mentioned there.... Also I agree about Dragged Into Sunlight, newer one wasn't as good as the debut.

 

On a further related doom note, The Body & Thou collab is pretty fucking heavy,

...both excellent bands on their own right as well.

 

Sheperd is pretty solid:

 

also very much looking forward to the upcoming Windhand:

Yeah, the new Windhand is going to be awesome. There's some really good doom records coming out this year, it's a good time to be alive.

After years of avoiding them due to overkill inflicted on me by my brother, I am listening to Master of Puppets by Metallica, to undo the damage done by excessive listening as a youth. Will return a verdict later.

 

Prediction: headbanging and nostalgia.

I'll always have time for Metallica. They were really amazing in the 80s, and awesome in a different way in the 90s (imo), kinda terrible in the 00s, but then Death Magnetic kinda redeemed them a little—I think Trujillo has really boosted their energy since he joined the band. He's got a lot of great ideas and just seems like a really cool guy. I'm legitimately looking forward to what they put out in the future; even the 4 'b-side' tracks on the Beyond Magnetic EP were nice and proggy.

 

I don't think any thrash band ever got close to the prog-metal style of Puppets/Justice. I've had many arguments with people about how Metallica aren't a pure thrash band.. but why do they need to be pure thrash when their prog elements are so fucking good?

I'm waiting for Hetfeild to put out an acoustic country music album. Maybe team up with Jerry Cantrell. You know he'd be really good at it.

Verdict: Good shit, as I expect. Seems so slow now, compared to the speedy metal nowadays, but of course this is to be expected. 10/10

 

Also I think if you hooked Hetfield up with a good producer who would coax a good calmer voice out of him he would make a swell country album. Plenty of songs on Load/Reload had that vibe and he did it well.

something more akin to this but with his mellower voice, this album got hate because it was barely metallica and such, but this tune was alright.

YEah I think there was good stuff in there. Would have worked better not as a Metallica double album fleecing drive.

Here is a phrase no-one ever thought would come to pass: GWAR have done a TED talk.

I'd go with Black Seeds of Vengence, though.
