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

In The Nightside Eclipse

Lord ov Darkness
and some less slipknot ^^[/QUOTE

Whats wrong with Slipknot? You prefer Limp Bizkit?

Definately not, never really got into the Nu-Metal scene since most of it was unoriginal bands who recycled riffs for pop/rock audiences. Other than SOAD the genre hopefully will die out but sadly an entirely worse genre has been conceived and has taken their place... Deathcore.

*prepares for scene-kid shitstorm"

EDIT: Also starting to get into DT, Metropolis, Pt. 2 is a symphony of progmetal.

eh. That's a matter of tastes breh. I don't like nu metal but i like SOAD and i like Deathcore, but like technical shtuff such as Rings of Saturn and Veil of Maya. Otherwise shit like Bring Me the Horizon can kiss my ass.

And hey. I am not a scene kid for liking deathcore >:c

Dream Theater, should prolly pick that up again sometime. Has been a while since i listened to any.

Found this again. sweeps. yay

IMO Slipknot was pretty original since they were one of the first really "brutal" nu-metal-ish band that came out in the mid to late 90s (started in 95 I believe), and since ive heard 'Psycosocial', 'duality' and 'Before I Forget' to name a few, Ive considered them to be alright. Its their personalities, the heaviness of their music and live performances that really drawn me in though. RIP SID Wilson....:(

Bands like Korn though, Ive never really liked/got into. Sure theyre catchy (pop-metal), but they fail to fully utilize the seven string ibanez's that Steve Vai gave the 90s, technically, in my opinion.

"If you cant properly utilize a seven string guitar, just tune down a six string"- Mick Thompson and Jim Root

Nah, no scene-kid shitstorm, its just opinions.

Forgot to add, Symphony X is a pretty badass band.

^Yeah, My favourite track so far is The Dance of Eternity. The keyboards are just so awesome and quirky >.<.
That song is probably the most technical song ever written.
Definitely the most technical in modern times, that's for sure. There's so many subtle things...
Though it does get old after a while, unfortunately. Probably in my bottom half of the album, but then the album is REALLY DAMN CONSISTENT and there aren't any "bad" tracks, so.

These guys are quite awesome.

So I'd assume most people here have heard Symbolic by Death. I'm also guessing most people have not heard the demo version, which sounds more like it belongs on Leprosy. I actually think I love this more than the album version, even if parts are not quite perfect.

Recently I found this really nice Chinese doom/folk metal band, Fu Xi

[video=youtube;6L-yqzakKzA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6L-yqzakKzA[/video]
It nearly brought me to tears

audio quality is higher on 360p than 480p in this video

my name is lucifer, pleased to meet you.
Can you start a page for album/single reviews? Because i will watch that shit.

might be a decent idea, i'll think about it~

as it is i post a lot of stuff here so perhaps watch this page. http://colonsquarebracket.tumblr.com/

Anyone seen Alcest live? Comin' to my city next month and really thinking about seeing them.
i hear it can fluctuate between amazing and mediocre so i hope the best for you. apparently neige has been getting better and better live, though. enjoy it, the new album is great.

I finally got around into buying Pentagram's latest album, and I have to say I'm enjoying the hell out of it. For somebody who's done drugs for forty years, Bobby sounds fucking kick ass.

REEAAALLY tight djent from le Sweden. It's kinda plastic sounding and over-produced, but it keeps itself from being repetitive.

Respect. Have you heard Elitist? The sound quality is amazing but it doesn't necessarily sound plastic.
hold up..[video=youtube;GFcTjnHnSQ8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFcTjnHnSQ8[/video]
POW. Link sauce.

@Michael; I've actually run across that band more than a few times and while a lot of people say they're an ABR rip-off, I barely even hear it. They sound really good regardless.
@Triage; I love that link I love you
Sigh, speaking of Djent, Born of Osiris. I don't know what the reaction will be or if someone has already posted this so let's find out.

Mathcore <3 Pretty unheard of band, and I'm not going to say I'm surprised when it comes to mathcore groups but I respect this sound, although I'm not totally in love, pretty good though.

Lastly, I think some people may have heard of this one, it seems familiar and reminiscent to Rings of Saturn. Very VERY intense shit going down.

there's one more but where is it?!
i can't find it, but this is pretty cool too.

OMG! I can't remember the name and i think i saw it on here.
It was a video of this middle eastern looking dude playing the guitar part to his band's song.
I think it was kinda djent or technical metalcore. And i think there was something about his band being...banned (lol:B) from the US.
On another note, theres been a lot of djent talk lately. And i dont mind it one bit!

Just imagine a whole band coming back from the dead: Ronnie James Dio for vocals, Dimebag Darrel for guitar, Cliff Burton for bass, and Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan for drums.
