I need something heavier.

    Hello, I need suggestions. Favourite bands tend to be Australian hip hop.

    Lately however, I've felt the need for something a little bit heavy to listen to. So much of what I find though just seems over the top. So I was wondering, from people that are more into the genre, what sort of bands/songs should I look at to begin with. To help, I can't stand Parkway Drive (raawwwwr!!). I've been looking at The Amity Affliction and I like it a bit, but their songs seem similar and a little plain (may just be the ones youtube took me to?). I want something a little heavier without jumping into the deep end xD Something to yell to next time I'm driving a long way, that still has a.. tune, I guess. I may be exposed to different bands being so far away from most of you so, yeah, thanks!

    What's the sort of stuff you have blasting at 2am while contemplating life?

    I'm hoping Hollywood Undead has a better reputation over there then it does here. Eh I like being able to be more open on here so yeah they have some of my favourite songs. Yes I know they have a lot of bad ones too, but so do many good bands. I dislike the entirety of their newest album though :/
    Could go heavier than that too but it's an indication, a lot of yelled lyrics but you can actually understand it, and some of their songs kinda 'hit home'. If it wasn't for a friend I would have only ever heard the band mentioned once, so I'm hoping theres some other bands over there that I like and haven't heard.

    "Heavy" as in, "face-meltingly ANGRY STUFF"?
    - Strapping Young Lad

    - Testament

    - Machine Head

    "Heavy" as in, "Thought Provoking"?
    - A favorite from Iron Maiden (really, this whole friggin' ALBUM)

    - A VNV Nation tune (What? I listen to stuff OTHER than metal too, yanno! Also, give a ton of their other stuff a listen)

    - The Sound of Silence (Disturbed version, which Paul Simon outright says is better than his)
    www.youtube.com: Disturbed The Sound Of Silence Lyrics
    - Lastly, take almost any given Trans-Siberian Orchestra album...and read the narrated liner notes. That heavy metal version of Carol of the Bells was originally recorded under the band name Savatage. It's called "Sarajevo" for a REASON...

    Oops, just realised this wasn't quite the right spot for this thread, oh well.

    Okay thanks for the response :D

    First three are kinda.. not my thing sorry haha. SYL was too plain I think?
    I'll look into testament more, that song was closer ;)
    Iron maiden was alright, another one to look into. Love the length of these haha
    I let YouTube do its auto-play with VNV Nation and I could probably get into it.
    Disturbed is another one to look into thank you. That song was pretty good, little slow but I'll see what else they do.

    maybe the 'heavy' I am trying to get at is probably more a different style (lie rap or rock), but a heavier version of it. maybe heavier/darker in meaning too if you know what I mean. An example:

    It has tune, meaning, and you can understand what he's saying. He's yelling some of it but not roaring like a dinosaur xD Plenty of lyrics too.
    Of the two types of 'heavy' you gave me, the thought provoking ones were my favourites.

    Heavy or dark?

    Nothing beats the aggressive evil sounding dark nature of bands like burzum,mayhem,darkthrone.

    Yet to check these out sorry.. out right now.

    Maybe I'm not sure exactly what I need but probably generally depressing rather than angry if you know what I mean.

    Yeah, you'll really like VNV Nation, then. And Iron Maiden's "The X Factor" album (named after it being their tenth album).

    If you're looking for something heavy, but not over the top. You can't beat Black Sabbath.

    It literally doesn't get more heavy and insane than this stuff, unless you want to listen to anti-music like SUN O)))

    Might as well throw in some Devin Townsend ( I know that Strapping Young Lad was Devin Townsend, but there's so much more to him than that )
