Not sure if this has made an appearance yet, but if you don't know it... You should!

I'm pretty sure Shah is Japanese thrash. Very good
Heck, here is another one of my favorites. I've got a couple of their albums.

TOXIC WALTZ - \m/
I remember my bed broken because of this song. All of my friend doing the stage dive:D

OK, I've had a chance to check out a few hundred posts. Most seem to lean toward old thrash and progressive metal. I'm more into classic and new thrash, groovy death metal and basically anything with good "chugga" in it.

Let me see if I can make a few somewhat non-obvious suggestions that I haven't seen so far.

First the old stuff. I'll do the newer stuff in another post. (click on them to listen on YouTube)

Old stuff

It's been so many years, I had forgotten so many of these bands. The Toxic Waltz, wow that brings back memories. Laaz Rocket, another name I haven't heard in years. I had that album, really like this song from it.




I agree the Testament album The Legacy was one of my all time favorties. Pretty sure I wore that cassette tape out.

Great stuff! That is a fantastic array of great music. I'll share some of my favs from each of the categories.

Old stuff

Doom
One of the most amazing covers of "Fear of the Dark" I've ever heard in my life.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo2G9T-ZP00

Black/Doom
Great Choice with Celtic frost! I've got Morbid Tales and Cold Lake frown.gif on vinyl.

Thrash
Here are some newer thrash bands I like:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMM6SqgyMeQ (probably the fastest thrash I've ever heard...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLUj2yWjYy0 (I went to see them live here and they never showed up... Jerks!)


Power
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AfNOKQdY-U Never really got beyond Iron Maiden, Iced Earth,and Blind Guardian in power metal but this is my favorite of 'em all.

Overkill rule. IMO they are the most consistant metal band ever. They are the AC/DC of Metal.
post #758 of 1185
Great thread. I found this through the DT discussion in the surround sound forum.

I was a teenager in the 80's and still feel like the early 80's to the early 90's was the golden age of metal, but I suppose every generation feels that way about their music. About 90% of my 'metal' CD collection is from that era and I rarely by new metal with the exception of progressive metal.

Speaking of Overkill, Twisted Sister released back in the early 90's "Twisted Forever – A Tribute to the Legendary Twisted Sister" album where Overkill does the Twisted Sister song "Under the Blade". My favorite song on the record.

Here I found the song on youtube:

If you're into fast and super tight newer thrash, do I have the band for you.

Gama Bomb - Citizen Brain
post #761 of 1185
Nice! I love it!

Did you hear Summon? I much prefer Gama Bomb's voice both are incredibly fast and intense. I love 'em!

Yes, not bad. I'd never heard of them. I'm usually in the mood for a heavier thrash, like Slayer. I'll list some of those shortly. Municipal Waste and Violator are two more bands in the tight and fast genre.
post #763 of 1185
OK, as promised here's the newer stuff. I'm not listing the obvious bands, except Slayer because they're too good to leave out. And yes, death metal vocals are an acquired taste (and trust me, it takes a while), but once you get used to them you wouldn't have it any other way. Careful. Some of this stuff is not suitable for the timid. smile.gif

Newer metal

Death
Deathgrind
Melodic Death
Death Thrash
Protector - A Shedding of Skin (old, but I just discovered it last year)

Thrash
Metalcore
Comedy Metalcore
Groove
Invocator - Weave the Apocalypse (old, but I just discovered it last year)
Machine Head - The Blackening

Hardcore

Just catching up with the thread.

Wow, cool some great suggestions out there, looks like we gained some more people all at once - nice!

Coincidentally I just put on the Arise album, good timing with all the thrash talk. Ok, I'm off to try out some of these suggestions I haven't heard or haven't heard in a long time.

Valtyr - I'm listening to it now. The youtue link didn't sound good so I looked it up on Spotify - sound quality is much better now and I like what I hear. I was about to say it sounds like it has some Amon Amarth in it and I looked back at your post and I see you did say Black/Viking metal, so there you go.

I'm going to save this album on Spotify for sure, thanks for the recommendation.

Just got done checking this out also. Pretty bad ass. I like it. Kinda reminds me of some Ensiferum stuff. I have been listening to a lot of this genre lately. Great suggestion! Thanks.

So I have been spinning the new Soulfly album 'Savages' and while I cant put it up there with Dark Ages and Enslaved, it is growing on me day by day. It is a pretty heavy album and I am glad Soulfly is continuing in this direction. I have been enjoying this band since the beginning and IMO Max Cavelera has one of the best voices in all of metal. Sepultura just wasnt the same after he left. This album is more basic then the other albums though. I am attributing this to the fact that Max's son Zyon is now playing full time on the drums and was in the studio for this recording. He just doesnt seem to have the experience yet. The drums seem a little amped up also which gives off a harshness to the recording especially with the cymbols. There is also hardly any full on double bass throughout the album (which I love). Nothing like the epic song 'Gladiator' from Enslaved. Now I have only listened to this in my car so I will have to give it a spin in the home and I will post another update on my impression.

Now I need to go back and check out some more of those suggestions. biggrin.gif

Listening to the song on the album called The Legacy. This definitely has some similarities to the album Orchid by Opeth. Very nice.
post #769 of 1185
Very happy to hear you enjoy it.

You should hear the entire Kings of the Distant Forest album. The song with the same name is really amazing.
post #770 of 1185
Just stumbled upon this thread. Subscribe now.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned the band Arsis. They are technical death metal and their latest album "Unwelcome" is fantastic.

I'm sure someone has mentioned Carcass. Their latest album "Surgical Steel" is pretty damn good too

Blackwater Park arrived... Wanna talk about first world problems? My theater pre (Marantz 8801) is being stupid and might be in the box after tonight if the update doesnt fix it....So I am listening to Opeth upstairs on the LS-6's on a Denon 3311 and Crown xls-1500.

I don't understand the hesitancy with this album that you guys were talking about. "ease into it" you said. I am already digging the SH%^ out of it, and I am only halfway through the second track. I REALLY need my theater back on this, but at least I have a second option!!!!! I am about to see what else I can scoop from these guys, TOO SOLID......
post #772 of 1185
beast, blackwater park is easily their best in my opinion. A lot of their stuff is good, but I think BWP is probably the best way to ease into the band. From the first minute of the first song it draws you in. They're very good!

If you are into it on first listen then you are going to LOVE this band when the melodies sink into your head. I wasn't kidding when I said that for a whole year - back in 02 roughly - pretty much the only music I listened to was Opeth albums.

Wait until you hear the guitar solo on A Fair Judgement from the album Deliverance.... or the middle section of Black Rose Immortal from the album Morningrise.... or a ton more of incredible sections of music throughout their catalog. Good times await. smile.gif
post #774 of 1185
Man, Amazon is on point. I got my follow-up email and their "suggestions" were among the other Opeth albums, Katatonia, Scenes from a Memory, and Clockwork Angels Tour BD from Rush. Haha. Crazy....I will be ordering more Opeth. I don't know why I all of a sudden got back on the whole "CD" hard copy thing, but it is quite nice! AND cheaper than buying from itunes!!!
post #775 of 1185
Well I have 5 discs headed my way of Opeth. Should be fun for a while.
post #776 of 1185
lol beast, i never stopped buying CDs for similar reasons, also if im going to be paying for it it better be loseless. Which is why i purchase from Bandcamp every now and then.

+1

Plus I'm just 'old school' and I like to hold, feel, see the media, maybe pull out the liner notes...

music website
http://bandcamp.com/

artists can release directly from it. generally you are given a lot of options for quality when you purchase/download. I think it started as an Indie Band site but has grown a lot

i grabbed Lvl 3 from Last chance to reason from there when it released in Aug as Amazon didnt have it then

I'm an old skool Metallica fan from back in the day. When I say "old skool" I mean ...And Justice for All and older. I can tolerate the Black album (I love about half of that album, the other half is "meh"). Anything after that I won't touch with a 10' pole.

I'm also a fan of Megadeth, Korn, Manson, Muse (though I wouldn't classify them as metal, they do have some good guitar work from time to time) Evanescence etc.

Speaking of Evanescence, I happen to LOVE metal bands that have a lead female vocalist. Besides Evanescence, I like Lacuna Coil and Nightwish as well. Do any of you have suggestions for more female led metal bands for me to discover?
