  • What are some of your favorite Heavy Metal Bands



    I am talking about heavy, heavy music, not rock and roll, meaning bands like Metallica and Megadethbarely qualify. I am trying to come up with new music to listen too, and in the process I have come across some music that I used to listen to in highscholl, back in the early 90s. I would say my favorites would be:</P>


    Chimaira</P>


    The Haunted (none of the early satanic crap, but their last 2 or 3 albums, are excellent, imo)</P>


    Machine Head</P>


    Malevolent Creation</P>


    Pestilence</P>


    Lamb of God</P>


    Himsa (these guys are excellent, if you like heavy music that still sounds like music and not a bunch of snare popping ****, this is it here.)</P>


    Obituary</P>


    Sepultura</P>


    Slipknot</P>


    there are others i like but the ones i listed are some of my favorites. Any recommendations for some heavy music?</P>

      ".....to join this fragile being,</P>


      who sleeps below,</P>


      the reflection of a razor, </P>


      reveals the moon so perfectly....".......BDM (first song i ever heard from them not sure of the title though.)</P>


      i was rocking out to opeth's "ghost reveries," yesterday. that orchestral metal is starting to grow on me, i think i avoided it for so long because i always associated it with high pitched vocals, and i don't like the high pitched singing (think iron maiden or dream theater, i can't stand it, it ruins the music, for me, anyway.) </P>


      i myself don't like cradle of filth, dani filth's voice doesn't do it for me, their music does sound really good though. i definitely like the sound of the instruments, just not the voice of their singer. its like deicide or slayer, imo, their music is f'ing great, sounds really good, BUT (and we both need to rememberthis forum is not the place for a religious debate,) the evil satanic messages in their music that actually pay homage to evil and wickedness, make it so i cannot bring myself to listen to it, it turns my stomach. </P>


      i know alot of the music i listen to can be considered "evil," and "satanic," because of the negative messages, but their messages are not as direct, and are not neccessarily glorifying evil, rather the music i listen to, calls attention to the evil **** in this world, and there is a difference. we really have to be careful with the stuff we pump into our brains (the subconciounce is a highly unknown territory.)</P>


      oh yeah some other stuff i listen to and could recommend:</P>


      Kreator (older favorite)</P>


      Overkill (older favorite)</P>


      Testament (when metallica was hot think early 90s, this was my favorite group)</P>


      Exodus (older favorite)</P>


      Killswitch Engage</P>


      Napalm Death (some of their stuff, early stuff was straight satanic so was sepulturas first 2 albums, and some of their music is nothing but a million snare pops a minute with growling and speed guitar in the background, imo.)</P>


      Hatebreed</P>


      Trivium</P>


      Between the Buried and Me (i highly recommend these guys although they are an aquired taste in my opinion. every one of their songs has enough content to make 2-3 seperate songs of different genres, i describe it as controlled chaos. theres screaming jackass music, theres easy listening mixed in here and there, just check them out, i think they have a few videos on you tube.)</P>

            If you like Sepultura you'll like Soulfly, Max Cavalera is lead vocals.</P>


            I like FinTroll I have no "F" ing clue what theyre saying because its Dutch but they rock.</P>


            Static X is also pretty good</P>


            and if youre going with older music Slayer is a must as well as Pantera</P>

              soulfly is cool, but they seem a bit like"pop metal," to me.static x is pretty cool, and yes pantera is the old reliable (dimebag daryl was absolutely amazing on guitar and phil's vocals hit like a sledgehammer, its a shame he got caught up in the heroin.) as far as slayer is concerned, i have always thought they rocked, but i refuse to listen to music with openly satanic messages and propoganda, thanks though, to each their own, and no doubt they are a tight band.</P>

                          First of all dude you know the rules of the board.........there will be no religious discussion.</P>


                          Since you started this thread pretty much all you talked about was religion and how you wont listen to bands perceived as "satanic". You should do somee homework on these bands and learn the real motivations behind their religious/political actions and at the very least let their music speak for itself. I listen to several bands that have been called "christian" rock and i pay it no mind, i listen to their talent.</P>


                          By starting a thread about metal, which i commend you for" you should be well prepared for the type of music real metalheads listen to. All the good metal comes out of black/death/symphonic metal and the repackaged crap that is given the spot light now has pretty much ripped of these underground scenes for years because they werent marketable.</P>


                          I dont care about a musician(s) political or spiritual creed. I love Screaming Jay Hawkins. He wrote a lot of music based on voodoo and occult beliefs and was considered very offensive in his day. But i dont care.</P>


                          I listen to Flyleaf who is pretty much considered a christian metal band because of the singers lyrics. Their music sounds great so i dont care.</P>


                          I listen to several hardcore punk bands, all of who have differing politcal ideaologies ranging from anarchy to fascism. But i dont care if their music sounds good.</P>


                          If you dont like satanically theatrical bands then thats fine.........just dont bring it up because its in bad taste. Im on the other side of the fence when it comes to mainstream religions and i would never make it part of the equation, especially in a thread dedicated to metal. You are risking getting this thread deleted and have made a mockery of the actual music.</P>

                            Here is some Screamin Jay Hawkins for everyone. His music doesnt sound heavy but if you give the song a chance it feels real heavy.</P>


                            Hawkins is a pioneer of the modern j*** fusion metal.</P>

                              Here is a song i love that blends nearly a millenia os music into one orchestral feat.</P>


                              For anyone offended by religious themes let me tell you this song is written from both sides of the questions about religion on earth.</P>


                              The song is about some radical stuff. Its a song i think every metal fan should listen to once.</P>


                              Enjoy.</P>
