Repetitive/psychedelic/minimal metal?

Recommended Posts

Yep, really loving this 5ive stuff. A little different to my idea but pretty fucking awesome!

*skipping to end of thread* (but gonna listen to all of that stuff)

first thing that came to mind was O.L.D. (James Plotkin):

I think this is a good idea. Some Mick Barr stuff is similar, but I think I hear what you're planning and it could be interesting.

Yeah! Had a jam with a keyboard player lastnight. Just me, him and a drum machine. It worked pretty well. It wasn't strictly repetitive metal though; it had sections of Jesu style distorted beats, post-metal breakdowns/buildups, jazz, stoner riffs and finally settling into motorik. It was pretty ridiculous. We're gonna refine it a bit and turn it into an actual release.

 

Anyway, that O.L.D. track is awesome!

Some Zach Hill stuff is kind of like what it seems you're looking for, albeit with fucking insane drumming throughout.

Alot of people have been throwing out all the sludge/doom/drone metal in this thread.

 

Om is a little bit faster than that imo, but obviously the instrumentation is as minimal as it gets. Bass and drums.

Album also fucking rocks.

 

 

Im thinking Genghis tron might be close to what you are thinking of. Loopy-guitar riffs, thrash/hardcore and drum machines. Thought not the most minimal vocals.

Yeah, I love good stoner/doom/drone/sludge stuff. I've been into it for years. My request is pretty specific though!

 

And yeah, Om are fucking brilliant. Maybe I should just play their records at 45 or something, zole.

i dig your idea and from the description alone this sounds like it could turn out really well!

if you just really slow down some of the slower parts of later Isis, and explore for 7 minutes...I'll come to au to see it

Replace 'slow down' with 'speed up' and it's a deal.

 

That said though, there were parts of our jam lastnight that sounded like the quieter Neurosis/Isis moments. Pretty good for just a downtuned guitar and a 70s Casio keyboard!

A lot of doom metal is sort of like ambient at times

Nah, like I said, just like that one Liturgy song; it's pretty different to their other stuff. Lightning Bolt have the minimal instrumentation, but their arrangements are still pretty elaborate in comparison to what I'm looking for. Maybe I'll try to get an example together over the next few days. Actually, here's something I came up with a while ago:

It's a bit slower than what I want to eventually work with but it's a start.

 

(ignore the vocals; they're just a placeholder and thus pretty terrible haha).

 

Man, this sounds unreal, looking forward to hearing how the whole thing turns out. Definitely going to fire this up as my next post-joint tune. The vocals sound great imo.

 

Also, quite stoner/doomy, but Electric Wizard?

Thanks guys! I've got a few tracks like the one I posted. I was thinking of adding some vocals to the earlier section but I kinda like it bare like that. It's funny, I'm so used to hearing the other tracks I'm writing in their bare, repetitive states that I don't think I actually want to add anything to them. I *might* cut down the one that is 35 minutes of a monotonic riff and tom rolls, though.

hey modey pretty sure you're already into it, but what you posted sounds a lot like chino's stuff... sounds like deftones in fact, and that's a good thing!

 

well, when the choir kicks in, it's pretty epic, sounds like syd barret singing :)

Thanks! Maybe I'll keep those vocals (or similar ones) in there after all. And yeah, I have been getting into Chino's various projects lately. Awesome stuff.

 

 

As for Nattefrost, it's not bad, i just haven't listened to black metal in a long time so it's a bit grating, haha.

Really really surprised no one has mentioned PHARAOH OVERLORD yet. It fits the OP's description to a T.
