I have both those CD's, but I prefer their middle albums like Eternal. Check out their side project Hate Plow. If you like Malevolent Creation you'll like Hate Plow.

In yet another example of my absolute hatred for radio these days, and since I'd rather shoot myself in the face than hear anything else ever by Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande (11 year old daughter), I've spent the last hour listening to....

I really liked that one for sure!!! Pop Music is absolute garbage for the most part right now. We will never likely see another eric clapton, Michael Jackson, bb king unless something drastic changes...

I've sampled older Ektomorf and didn't care for it, but these two newer albums are pretty good - if you're in the mood for a heavier more diverse version of Soulfly - 'cause that's who they remind me of. Redemption has a slighty gritty sound. Black Flag is a little more defined. Good all the way through so I'll just link to the whole albums. The 2014 album, Retribution, isn't as good.




I'd skip the first 1:30 of this next one. It's just an intro. I tried to do it for you, but this new format won't let me.

I know this is an older topic, but I FINALLY got around to watching Metallica Through the Never and damn if that wasn't really good! Even the couple songs that I didn't care for, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. Even the made up story was entertaining albeit kind of strange. I'm sure it has much more metaphorical value to the band. I even got to see my cousin in the movie! He is the bald paramedic with glasses at the end where the stage hands get "hurt". Very cool. And I thoroughly agree with what some were saying about finishing out the credits with Orion. Bad Ass! My only regret was it took me so long to see this. Will watch again very soon. \m/

Has anyone checked out the Rob Zombie Bluray? I saw it at Best Buy but didn't pick it up. It looks like its from the 2013 tour which I really enjoyed. I may just have to go pick it up.

This one is streaming on Netflix right now for those who (like me) haven't seen it before.

Pre-orders are up for Opeth's new album: Pale Communication. The Deluxe version includes a 5.1 Blu-Ray mixed by Steven Wilson....YES!

http://store.roadrunnerrecords.com/a...sc-bundle.html

I've listened to two tracks and I personally like the direction they've taken with the last two albums as I don't care for the death/black metal growls. Dare I say Ritchie Blackmore Rainbow-ish ?

It's pretty good. R rated though, so don't watch it with anyone who'd be offended by dozens of audience flashes (including a couple by adult film star Stormy Daniels).

Shut the door... he's pulling his goalie!

I'm the opposite, while I do like Opeth's non metal parts and stuff Damnation and Heritage are damn fine albums but I miss the death metal parts. I'm glad there will be a 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson. Opeth's 5.1 mixes are some of my favorite surround sound albums, too bad there isn't a 5.1 mix of Damnation (that I know of). I heard the first new song they released and it was just ok for me, a tad bit weird but it could be a grower.

I really WANT to like their new stuff.

I force fed myself the Heritage album so many times. It's not like it's bad, but it just bores me. Watershed didn't do a lot for me either. Ghost Reveries is very good, but for me it was the first album that started to lose a little of that magic. Everything up to and including Deliverance and Damnation are all time favorite albums for me so I'm not upset since that's 7 great albums to listen to.

I'm sure I'll try like hell to like the new album too.

I think their newer sound will really lend itself well to Mr. Wilson's 5.1 mix. That's probably what I'm most excited about.

Haha, love those!! ^

Last night I watched a ton of videos of this girl drummer. So intriguing, and not just because she is hot.... well, haha, not just because of that. It's the fact that she has such easy looking movements and smiles so much like she really loves what she is doing. Everthing from Priest, to Pantera, Tool, Metallica, Rush, Lamb of God, Dream Theater. I'm impressed.

I don't listen to much metal. I purchased a pile of CD being sold together at Goodwill. They included a CD by Betrayer called Rusted Icons. I really enjoy it. The family was out tonight so I listened to the album at loud levels.



I found this about them:

Quote:
This is a really good album. There are many influences heard on this album. but the Maiden and Megadeth influences are heard most. Actually it sounds like if Megadeth (ala 1990 or 1992) and Maiden fused together. They made the rythym guitar sound's too much like Countdown To Extinction in that theres too much gain. The drums are probably the best here. There's a lot of catchiness throughout, and deserves a few listens. This is plainly heavy metal.
Quote:
The quick success of Betrayer's eight-track demo spread throughout the local scene and across several American states, Canadian provinces, and European nations. Bill Lozon (Guitars) would later join the band, giving them the desired full sound for both live performances and studio sessions. The addition of a secondary guitarist gave Betrayer the extra energy on stage as well as the layered harmonies and melodies that have brought them so much attention.

Betrayer's quartet would soon captivate numerous crowds - winning many competitions, being featured in national media, and collecting an impressive gathering of fans spawning the far reaches of the globe.

Having built upon their successes and strived for higher goals, Betrayer has utilized the capabilities of the Internet and savvy web-based promotions to further their exposure to fans around the world. Boasting an interactive street team with hundreds of members and growing daily, Betrayer has support from nearly every continent and dozens upon dozens of countries, states, and provinces.
Quote:
Betrayer's music is influenced through 80's metal such as Megadeth, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Scorpions and Malmsteen. It's powerful and upfront. The guitar solos are melodic, the drums are defined and the bass work has a lot of groove.

Brutal tech death, if you like Necrophagist, Psycroptic, or Spawn of Possession you might dig this:

Appalachian bluegrass meets Norwegian black metal:

"Nintendocore"

doom/death metal... I don't know why this one isn't doing the preview like the others but it's Black Sun Aeon "Frozen".
