    Talking Metal Thread

    didn't see a metal thread, so here's a metal thread
    personally, i love a lot of metal. death, doom, black, a little thrash.

    discuss
    if you choose the path of bloodshed then climb to the very pinnacle of evil
    if you choose to build a mountain of corpses, build it's summit as high as you dare
    if you will make blood flow let it be a river, no, an ocean of blood

    Metal is good once in a blue moon when you need to air out some fustration.

    Coal Chamber are good.

    I'm a huge fan of Kyuss-esque stoner metal, "metalcore" (whatever that means these days), thrash, hardcore, blah blah blah.

    One of my biggest peeves about the metal world, is the average listener's compulsion to label and seperate all the different kinds of metal. Shit, if it sounds good...I like it. If it sounds ass, then I won't like it.

    Also, anybody else notice how popular "metalcore" is with christian youth groups? Blows my mind, but it makes a weird kind of sense.

    Metal isn't only about airing frustrations unless the only metal you know is crap angsty nu-metal bands like Coal Chamber

    anyway

    favorite thrash albums:
    Kreator - Pleasure to Kill
    Sodom - Persecution Mania; Agent Orange
    Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales/Emperor's Return; To Mega Therion
    Slayer - Hell Awaits; Reign in Blood (typical I know)
    still gotta love the first four Metallicas too

    favorite death metal:
    Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness; Blessed Are the Sick; Covenant
    Carcass - Symphonies of Sickness; Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious
    Cryptopsy - None So Vile; Blasphemy Made Flesh
    Incantation - Onward to Golgotha; Diabolical Conquest
    Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten; Pierced From Within
    Death - Scream Bloody Gore; Leprosy
    Deicide - Deicide; Legion

    favorite black metal:
    Bathory - The Return...; Under the Sign of the Black Mark, Blood Fire Death
    Sarcofago - I.N.R.I.
    Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky; Under a Funeral Moon; Transilvanian Hunger
    Immortal - Pure Holocaust; Battles in the North
    Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
    Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
    Deathspell Omega - Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice; Kenose; Fas -- Ite, Maledicti in Ignem Aeturnum
    Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times; The Shadowthrone; Nemesis Divina
    Burzum - Burzum; Det Som Engang Var; Hvis Lyset Tar Oss; Filosofem

    favorite grindcore:
    Napalm Death - Scum; From Enslavement to Obliteration
    Brutal Truth - Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses; Need to Control
    Carcass - Reek of Putrefaction
    Siege - Drop Dead
    Pig Destoryer - Prowler in the Yard
    Circle of Dead Children - Human Harvest

    Industrial metal:
    Godflesh - Streetcleaner; Godflesh
    (although I consider Godflesh to be closer to the same genre of noise rock/post-industrial as early Swans rather than any other bands considered "industrial metal" like Fear Factory or Ministry that sound nothing like them)

    Well they categories can be useful to an extent. There are degrees of styles in metal that eventually get so far apart that one subgenre doesn't do justice to the style. You'll always have bands on the cusp of things, such as the early black metal and death metal bands that were still rooted mostly in thrash, but after a while the genres start to diverge. Cannibal Corpse clearly doesn't play the same style of metal as Emperor or Celtic Frost even if they all had roots in the same earlier bands.

    See, I don't get into a lot of "truer" metal. The whole territory is a huge turn off cuz there is just so much fucking elitism with it.

    Bands I like:
    Pantera
    GWAR
    Kyuss
    Acid Bath
    Corrosion of Conformity
    Municipal Waste
    White Zombie (not really Rob's solo shit)
    All That Remains
    Cancer Bats
    Bring Me The Horizon (don't say it, I know)
    Architects
    etc

    I have no idea what "class" half of those belong into. Also, I don't so why a class in necessary or even smart when it comes to music. All you're doign is pigeon-holing a band into a certain genre. It's almost as if if you don't follow these templates laid in place, you don't know what you're doing.

    EDIT: lol, i see we're kinda of over-lapping eachothers post times. I get what you're saying though. It helps when explaining things but some people take it too far.
