Metal Appreciation Thread!

Weird. But my main point is that if Kvelertak isn't metal, then tons of bands aren't metal, (but clearly are). Black Sabbath might as well not be metal if it's put that way, but blues rock dressed up and masquerading as metal. There are so many meaningless distinctions and then they have the fucking nerve to call Ghost metal. It's annoying!

most idm thing I've listened to this year  

Yeah, some of that French/LLN stuff is amazingly leftfield. Brenoritvrezorkre are my particular faves.  https://kaleidarkness.bandcamp.com/album/vaszagra-be-akr-uatr-brenoritvrezorkre

Yeah, that is pretty weird Candiru. Speaking of Kvelertak the lead singer left the band and they have already found the replacement. I really hope this band doesn't start singing all their songs in english in an effort to increase their crossover appeal. That would fucking suck.

Really digging the new Daughters single, although probably the least metal sounding thing they've put out it's damn good:



it's got me hyped on a lot of their older stuff again:



 

 

Also been blasting the newest Jungle Rot lately:




and looking forward to the upcoming Revocation:

I too love that Daughters track . I'm really excited for the album. It was quite different to what I was expecting which was a nice surprise , unlike the pig destroyer lead single. Edited by Stickfigger

That is a very cool track.  It didn't do anything that I expected it to do.  No metal cliches to be found whatsoever, but still definitely metal.  I'm 'll have to check out more of their stuff.

this one's not proper metal but pretty good still. Dunno if it's even metal enough to be posted in this thread tbh, but if Ghost is considered metal we might as well post the Pixies here

John Zorn's O.G.. He's valid in whatever music thread. Listen to some Painkiller. Very much metal.

That Inferno one is from a new group he assembled a few years ago called Simulacrum, the 2 albums I've heard from them so far are great

 

re Painkiller: I'm listening to misc. Zorn stuff in an attempt to stop rinsing the Painkiller albums

Buried Secrets & Execution Ground got me strange looks being blasted out of my car in the early-mid nineties. I loved Bill Laswell's dub bass so much.

man, why did nobody tell me that Enslaved were like a black metal Isis?

 

 

almost makes me want to try making post-metal again, actually reminds me of one of my old songs lol

They replaced him with another Norwegian dude who did some backup vocals on their first album so hopefully it's all good.

cool, it has the guys from Baptists.

 

 

on the srs: mentioning Hydra Head or Kurt Ballou production immediately makes my ears prick up.

I should clarify my comments though. It only has some of the guys from Baptists, but the good ones (drummer, also Sumac drummer). 

 

Also its not produced by Kurt, just mixed :/

Their last album that came out not that long ago had some great tracks on it. It had some grunge era soft-heavy dynamics mixed with Converge like drums and frenetic guitar lines. The vocals in Baptists is not the strongest though which is the let down for me

I follow Earache on social media and they seem to be promoting country music 90% of the time which is kind of annoying, but I checked one of the tunes on YouTube and it had 12 million views, which is shocking to say the least for an Earache band
