Heavy metal (or no metal at all) The Brutal thread

Thinking about grabbing Sonic Syndicate's earlier album, Only Inhuman. Their new stuff isn't all that good, and I'd like more of their music. Only way I can go is backwards.

Got loads of shit going on for Christmas, gonna buy all of Gojira and Volbeat's discography (excluding the odd album here and there because I'm not made of money) and complete my Mastodon discography, and also buy a couple of live DVD's from those bands because at this point why the fuck not.

Deck the halls ... WITH PAIN.

I'm afraid there's not a link of the studio version that i can find, but the song is "Whales" by the band Scale the Summit.

Kinda Djenty, but instrumental and more like progressivey.

Dammit I can't get over the pain of losing my truly beloved ;_;

If only this was enough to ease the pain ...

Who here fucking misses the age of Nu Metal? I certainly do. Sadly it can never make a comeback. :S
Nu metal? What's that? I've never heard of that kind of thing. :V

Don't know how "new" you mean, but I've liked some of their stuff from a few years back. I think their lineup got shuffled around a bit so maybe they started sucking when they replaced band members.

You know, that song sounds oddly familiar, like I've heard another band play almost exactly the same tune. Don't know what, though.

By "new" I mean their latest album, though I don't remember what it is called. It's the one with "Burn this City" which isn't a bad song I suppose...

What happened is either the band or their publishers wanted more coverage, so they wanted to tone down some of the scream/growling. This pissed off a member or two, who ended up leaving. They got replaced, and now the new stuff is more melody and the screaming/growling is covered up by more music and not let to stand on its own. I don't really like that, moreso for the reasoning for the change than the actual change. So, backwards I must go.

Oh, get the fuck off your high horse. No one gives a flying shit; nobody posting in this thread is like that, so it's not a big deal if someone brings up a hardcore band on occasion. Hardcore is an adaptation of metal and most of us are aware of that, it's just none of us are stupid enough to think it's the evolution, simply an adaptation.

Besides, nobody here is an elitist metalhead, just metalheads of varying tastes. If anything, you're being the elitist here by calling someone out for music.
Listen to the band Elitist and pretend that wcar is better. Since when has metal ever been about watering down your music and making everything pretty with synth and effects that your band doesnt even have.
Even if it is metal, it still sucks because of how unspontaneous and monotonous it is.
So dont fucking post it in the "br00tal heavy metal" thread if its watered down, pretty, and/or FILLED with bass drop breakdowns.

Hey great let's all try to one-up each other with petty claims and criticism of each-other's tastes to prove everyone we're the METAL GOD of these forums ... seriously dudes live and let live and all that bullshit.

Oh. I had no idea they put out a new album, and I've never listened to it. Yea, the only stuff I listened to was the older stuff, before the one band member left. Mind you, I've only heard a little of their music though. Some of their older stuff I've heard is nothing BUT the growling/screaming you mentioned below.

Isn't that how most metal bands go? The record company wants a wider audience, so tells them to tone down the screaming and violent anger?

I personally didn't say wcar is better than anything (other than compare it to alt-rock and nu-metal). Tides is a pretty big fan of theirs, as they're local to both of us, where I'm just casually interested in them. Heh, synth and effects... sounds kinda like half the metal out there nowadays (Rammstein, anyone? Are they metal enough?).

I'm not even sure this IS a "brutal" metal thread anymore, and just a "metal" thread in general. In any case let's stop the god damn pissing contest.
Edit: Checked the first post. This isn't a thread for just "brutal" metal, just a thread for "metal". Of any kind.


Was going to a concert this weekend for FFDP and All That Remains (both totally not metal :V). Key word: WAS. This cold refuses to go away and seems to be getting worse and worse, to the point I can't sleep and wake up half the night hacking and being unable to breathe. I can't go to a concert feeling like shit and having no energy or willpower. I'm just glad I didn't buy the tickets yet. I'll be somewhat sad but there will be other opportunities.

WCAR may or may have not been metal. I thought it was (metalcore, and yes, I AM a fan of that genre, as well as other genres, so suck it), but it's close enough to almost be metal. Wiki lists it as such, anyway. It's an okay band, I like some of their shit, and when in my original post I said it was good music, I was comparing it to the alt-rock stuff the station usually plays, in which case it IS an improvement in my mind.

I play in a metalcore band bro...

99% sure you're taking everything I said the wrong way.

Go back to the earlier pages in this thread posted in 2010 and you'll see that you're bitching out the wrong person. I quit posting in this thread for almost a year for a reason asshole.

^This dude can vouch for me. He's seen what this thread used to be.

Oh, and I'm gonna double post, because this is about something completely different.

2 bands I've recently fallen in love with.

My favorite sub-genres are easily sludge and old-school death metal, but I've fallen in love with later-era Tiamat. I initially checked them out for their early death metal albums, but I've come to love their gothic rock/metal stuff they released later on even more. Excellent stuff, recommended to all

You know what, I was kind of being an asshole about this. but perhaps accept my apologies and we can just leave everyone to their own tastes?

Btw, I had only heard of Rings of Saturn. Both of those I really like alot.
gonna check their other works out a bit...

also, some power metal that I just recently found a few days ago.
[video=youtube;tcJYGJL7zXA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcJYGJL7zXA&feature=related[/video]
Won't deny that I like this, but not much.
[video=youtube;whXPP5tH398]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whXPP5tH398&feature=related[/video]
Eh.
[video=youtube;KTiQ75HY0DA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTiQ75HY0DA[/video]

will have some more later. Trying to find some extreme metal, like in the vein of Black Dahlia Murder. Any suggestions?
And somehow I used to dislike Deflorate. Listening to it again, I'm not sure how that happened.

Yes, I love this song.

That was awesome, I'd definitely checking them out later.

I've been listening to early Slayer a lot recently, everything they did before Reign in Blood is amazing.
