Well since you're bringing up Carcass I might as well post this:

Haha, I thought you might! Great song that one as well. The Amott brothers, with their long hair and tight leather trousers, really rock my socks off. The most recent album Rise of the Tyrant reunited them, and I think its their best album since Wages of Sin. Love it!

How about some metal from Holland?? (apologies for the lack of accompanying vid)

A piece of trivia about these guys, in a nod to their national heritage, the special edition of one of their albums came with a special Legion of the Damned edition Cheeseboard. :lol: gotta love bands with a sense of humour!

This is one of the funniest and most awesome metal videos I have seen:

- The moment the singer starts growling with a torch in his hand in some tombs...
- His "dancing" in the middle part...
- His "toilet flush" growl at the end :lol:

Can't remember if I posted these guys before. Pretty brutal and all that:

Rediscovered this band afer dismissing them a few years ago. It's fair to say they've recorded only one good album, but it's awesome:

Has anyone heard Maiden's new album btw? I thought it was pretty bland myself.

Liking that Crown track! Going to check them out some more. The Forsaken sound pretty good too. I'm not generally an Emperor fan, but I have to admit I did really dig that linked track.

The Forsaken reminded me of this guy:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE7oX4mKcco[/youtube]

I like most of what Peter Tägtgren has done with Hypocrisy, really like that band (another Swedish metal hero, too much talent for one country I say!). Though I find his other project "Pain" to be a bit crap, so I keep hoping he gives up on that boring stuff to stick with Hypocrisy!

And he was the vocalist on (in my opinion) Bloodbath's best album:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBfoMgllphs[/youtube]

Michael åkerfeldt is a great vocalist, his vocals on some Opeth tracks make me happy in the pants, but I think Peter fits better with the Bloodbath sound.

Glad to be getting some new music!

Have to disagree, Mike > Peter :D
But I love both...

That Bloodbath track is great, I hadn't heard that one before! And Mike does sound brilliant on it. They're a lucky band to have recorded with two awesome vocalists :thumbup: I like the DT track as well, great video :lol:

How about we take it oldschool, and get our thrash on?

And 90s thrash is also pretty neat:

Ah man, Testament, hells yeah! They were the last band I saw before I left the UK. They were supported by Anaal Nathrakh (UK extreme metal), and Warbringer (bay-area thrash revival). All three bands blew my face off, one of my favourite gigs of all time.

And man I love anthrax. The earlier stuff more than the later stuff. They are fantastic live too. I've seen the big 4 of thrash live, and I'd rate Anthrax second after Slayer. I really like Megadeth, Dave Mustaine is just so bloody boring on stage. Megadeth don't really do much of a live show. Metallica do a better live show, but I just can't stand them these days anyway.

And I was wondering when At the Gates might show up :D I got into The Haunted before At the Gates, and only found them by reading about The Haunted's history. I love quite a few of their tracks, but I wish their early albums didn't have such shit production :( I find "Terminal Spirit Disease" and "The Red in the Sky is Ours" both quite difficult to enjoy. I'd love them to rerecord / remaster some stuff.

That is a bit odd though, because I really don't mind early thrash recordings, which were often equally shitty (like the Bonded by Blood vid I linked before), I just think Death Metal relies more on good quality production than Thrash. Both Thrash and Death (particularly Swedish :D) are my two favourite broad genres, though I do have a soft spot for others as well. I like these guys who have some progressive tendencies:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8owEC055p8[/youtube]

Some Darkane there.

Their neighbours the Fins also put out some good music too, some great folk metal which I have enjoyed, like these guys:

Ensiferum (with one of their less folky songs)

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1s6Fz8BATWE[/youtube]

and Wintersun:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs5727QFhtw[/youtube]

Wintersun's second album "Time"is a contender for the title of "Duke Nukem Forever of metal" as well :lol: been 'in development' for nearly 5 years, the first release date was in 07, and it still hasn't been released.

Over the past few days I have been punishing myself with some of the darkest, weirdest, least accessible metal albums of all time. Lots of bands have surprised me in the past when, after repeated listens, the wall of incomprehensible noise resolved itself into music I could happily listen to. After finally breaking the last taboo - black metal - I figured I could handle pretty much anything a metal band could throw at me, with enough patience and concentration of course.

First up is the most melodic song (the most) from Gorguts' Obscura:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZGcOorSuo8[/youtube]

After like 5-10 listens you get desensitized to the dissonence and begin to appreciate the songwriting. Only then is it time to assess the album on its own merits. (I thought it was alright)


Back here I posted a couple of incredibly brutal bands, Anaal Nathrakh and Deathspell Omega. I thought I'd found the edge of extreme metal, but I was wrong. These two could be considered their respective evil cousins:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HENX1PMxr_A[/youtube]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxubGZKni7Y[/youtube]

It seems kind of useless to point out that these are the most accessible songs of theirs I could find....
