Doom/gothic.... sort of. Also reminds me of southern metal (not sure that's a thing but that's how I think of it) like they were influenced by COC or Down on some of the songs. Listening to the whole album. Some songs are stinkers but some do it for me.

Help me! I can't stop buying Bandcamp albums. Bandcamp is a bottomless pit of cheap music.


(Death metal)

SQ is just OK, and vocals might be a little monotonous, but catchy, groovy rhythms.



(Progressive thrash/metalcore/death)

Complex and unique stuff. Lots of variety. These guys are very tight. This song sounds like a metal Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

My all-time favorite band is, by far, TooL. I've been fortunate enough to see them 23 times in 11 different states with the Lateralus CD-release show at the Tabernacle in Atlanta being the crown jewel. My favorite track by them would by Stinkfist but their best track is Lateralus - the final couple of minutes of which is the pinnacle of music as far as I'm concerned. For others that like TooL and need a fix until the new album drops (2017 doesn't look likely now, but it is definitely coming as I know for a fact they are actively writing in the loft) you might find Australia's "Karnivool" of interest as well as a band I stumbled across called "Soen." Clear Tool influence in both with Karnivool being a legit progressive metal act and Soen more of a Tool-ripoff (I mean that in the nicest way possible!).


Spiral out...


Keep going...


11 shows in 3 states since '95 for me. I lived in Aurora, CO for a couple years, right when Lateralus came out so I missed the cd release show dammit. The other 35+ years I've lived in atlanta, go figure.
I'm sure they're working on the new album, but I quit holding my breath years ago. It'll happen when it happens.
I was happy to hear APC is touring again (got my tix for 5/2) and may be putting out new stuff. I thought Thirteenth Step was fantastic as well as some of their covers, especially When the Levee Breaks.
Wanted to say thanks for the heads up on Karnivool, been making my way through their albums and like the older stuff better so far. I think Cote is my favorite followed by Synops, great groove to those. Will keep at it and will check out Soen too. Thanks again!

This album is sounding great (both SQ and songs themselves) on google play. The vocals are the weak point but it doesn't bother me much. The guitars are great.

(Progressive death metal; female vocals; chaotic, but not dissonant)

I generally dislike chaotic music because usually chaos is dissonant, and I don't like dissonance. But this band somehow makes chaos sound consonant. Very unique style.

I love Anciients. I played their first album in high rotation. Yeah its a good slice of progressive in the slightly sludgier side for lack of a better term. I hear Mastodon influences but I think they do it better.

(Progressive mix of heavy and power metal)

Power metal is usually not my genre as it tends to be cheesy and monotonous, but a few stand out when they have excellent songwriting, and especially if they have the virtuosic guitar of Christian Muenzner.

Thanks for this - pretty awesome song. It reminds me of Allegaeon's first album, them being my favorite technical death metal band at this time. You might not like them as much though, depending on your definition of "wankery." They do showcase their skills a lot, so some might consider that wankering. I like that they are goofy and don't take themselves seriously even though they are insanely skilled. Just my $0.02.

(Blackened death/thrash)

I only own a few of this genre because I find most examples uninteresting, but this album has some oomph to it.

Been expanding my black metal education a bit lately. I've always been kind of cold to this subgenre, but there are some bits of it I do like. I am just pickier than with some others.

Was turned onto this Finnish group which I find a very solid album.


then AMG pointed this one out

(Thrash with death elements ... super tight)

My goodness is this tight. I featured a couple of their very short EPs earlier, but a few of the songs on this full-length are top-tier thrash. Tasty leads sprinkled throughout.



... and they just released another very short EP a few days ago ...

Dying Fetus...wow. Is there some unwritten rule that if you're in some form of a death metal band that you have to come up with a ridiculous name? Some of these names are just...well, they're stupid and sometimes offensive. With that said, I only care about the music they offer (provided the lyrics don't offend me), not the name they choose. Still though...

Name debate aside, that thrashy breakdown at 2:04 is certainly a headbanger.

I stumbled onto the G & R one a while back and had my kids watch it with me along with the Metallica one. Funny stuff, my girls had heard most of the songs before so it wasn't anything new to them but they thought it was really funny. My favorite part was when my 11 year old reminded me that when she was 3-4 her favorite song was Master of Puppets. Now... not so much but both kids don't mind hearing heavy music. They do laugh at death vocals though, they think they are silly.

The problem for me with Megadeth is that their music doesn't have a lot of replay-ability. I get sick of them really quick. I could go the rest of my life and never hear anything from the Countdown to Extinction album on and be just fine.

However, one of their albums is nothing like the others and I never get tired of it. Rust in Peace. Masterpiece.

Heirs to Thievery is one of my favorite DM albums. I find their earlier stuff hit-and-miss. Good call though. Closest I have is another band that has former members of Dying Fetus ...
