Their album Worship Music is a couple (or so) years old and is outstanding IMO. Check out the song In the End to get an idea - I LOVE that song.

I saw them during the Persistence of Time tour. Really good album. Their new stuff is good although Joey can't quite hit the high notes like he used to. Scott Ian still kicks butt on rhythm guitar and they have a new talented young lead guitarist.

Agreed. Great album and great song. Worship Music came out in 2011 and they have a newer EP that came out last year, Anthems.

Although I have all of the albums from Anthrax, I think their music is overrated. That doesn't mean that I don't listen to them but they have made too many mediocre albums especially in the 90s and 00s.
Though I agree with the others that Worship Music is a great album. Fight 'Em 'Til you Can't is my favorite song of the album. The video for it is pretty brutal.

*edit*
I didn't realize that Rob Caggiano and Charlie Benante had left the band. I found out just now.

Caggiano has left and Charlie is only out temporarily due to recovery from surgery.

One of the better OSDM albums I've heard in a while. Good from start to finish. The first link is the full album. The second link below is the heaviest song on the album. I had to showcase its crushing riff. The rest of the album is more normal OSDM.

Last time I saw Anthrax was a outdoor Clash of the Titans show back in '91 with Alice in Chains and Megadeth. Anthrax had some girls dancing on the speakers during their set. Good times.

Great combo. I've seen Megadeth several times. They are always awesome. I saw Alice in Chains once. Unfortunately my friends and I were not impressed with them live. Could have been the setup but it was very disappointing.

So I have been meaning to post some photos of my last couple of concerts but my new job has kept me busy and I had almost 1500 photos to sort through and get rid of bad ones and rotate a bunch of others. These were all taken at a local Seattle club called El Corazon. As you can see, I always try to get up to the front. \m/

Here is a band called Sabaton. They are from Sweden. I had never heard them before and they were not what I was expecting. They are more of a power metal band. Quite a bit different than the opening act, Skeletonwitch or the main act, Amon Amarth. They are not a band I would normally listen to, but they were a lot of fun and very happy and energetic.

Here is the main act, Amon Amarth. Unfortunately most of the 500 pics I took (many in burst mode) came out blurry either due to the lighting really affecting the camera (iphone 5s) or getting knocked around from the crowd. It was awesome though. BTW, for any Amon Amarth fans out there, the lead singer, Johan Hegg, has a role in the upcoming movie Northmen: A Viking Saga.

This next set op pics was on a separate night from the Amon Amarth concert. This ended up being a total folk metal night. First up is an Estonian band called Metsatoll. I had never heard of them before but they turned out great, IMO. They played a wide range of musical instruments including flutes and bagpipes. Lots of fun.

Next up is a band from the Faroe Islands north of Scotland called TYR. This is the second time my buddy and I saw them and we both agreed that they were way better this time. The first time only one member seemed to be having fun. But this time everyone appeared to be having a good time. Yeah, the lead singer seems to have a thing against shirts.

And last up is the headliner or this concert, Eluveitie from Switzerland. This band is easily one of the top folk metal bands I listen to since getting into the genre a little over a year ago now. They have some great tunes. And the female singer/hurdy gurdy player is easy on the eyes too. Unfortunately the other woman who plays the fiddle had to fly home before our concert for a family emergency. That was a bummer and if you listen to this band at all, you would notice her absence. But they were still awesome. \m/

Hope you all enjoy the pics. We had a ton of fun at these concerts. I only ended up getting like 2-3 hours of sleep before work the next day each time but I wouldn't have traded it for anything. If you have any pics of your concerts, I would love to see them.

Folk metal, never heard of that genre. Any suggestions to check out besides Eluveitie referenced above?

Here is another version of the wikipedia list: http://www.spirit-of-metal.com/liste...etal-l-en.html

You will also have to click on the two sub-genre links to see more bands.

Some of the ones I really like listening to:
Eluveitie
Ensiferum
Tyr
Turisas
Arkona (they are Russian and their lyrics are in Russian, but that add to the music IMHO)
Suidakra
Korpiklaani
Falkenbach (more viking metal than folk metal, but that is really starting to get too nitpicky with genre labeling)

Been listening to a lot of Devin Townsend material lately since the new Zilltoid album is pretty close to release.

I revisited Strapping Young Lad's Alien album while on a recent road trip. Skeksis could be my current favourite heavy song. Devin's stuff can be so different at times. This album was also written while he had dropped his Bipolar medicine cold turkey.


This "live" performance of Kingdom sounds better than both album versions. He has killer vocal range.

Also this live version of Love?
What a ****ing lunatic. Haha Canadians.

I've got to listen to some more SYL. I have Alien but I haven't listened to much else. I have a lot of Devin's solo stuff and love a lot of it, I don't know why I haven't listened to a lot of SYL.

He's such a different guy. I remember when he was being interviewed about SYL's The New Black and was asked how it compared to older albums. I was expecting the usual BS answer that every artist gives that the new album is better than everything they have ever done. Devin simply shrugged and said the new album was ok, not too bad but they have done better or something like that. Haha, that cracked me up.

Periphery just finished up a US tour with The Contortionist, Intervals, and a band I had never heard of named Toothgrinder. I wasn't able to go see one of the shows, but I was checking out some of the YouTube vids that had been posted and Toothgrinder really made me pay attention. I did some searching around and their first EP, The Schizophrenic Jubilee, is scheduled to drop Nov 4th. However, they have a 3 song album that is available for download for free (or a donation) at their BandCamp page. While there are 3 individual songs on the album, they play almost like one continuous track. I strongly encourage everyone to go check them out. I've never heard anything quite like these guys.

BandCamp Page Link:
http://toothgrinder.bandcamp.com/

You can also check out one of he songs that will be on their new album here:

Abysmal Dawn is a talented band that can put out some really great songs. Unfortunately, they tend to throw some stinkers on their albums too. However, their latest release is at least 3/4 good, maybe more. (death metal)

An old band has a new album. Good stuff 25 years ago, same now.



For those unfamiliar with the band, here's their excellent 1987 debut, although some prefer the more progressive 2nd release, Into the Mirror Black.
