Damn , thought death metal was kinda dead atm but this band rocks. Well , it's not pure death metal , it's more like melodic deathcore.... whatever that means !

Videos:
Official :Thank You Pain my favorite!

Official :Business Suits & Combat Boots

Official : And Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep

She was on freaking Canadian Idol : Intro + Bohemian Rhapsody

Yes , it's a girl singing and she's got a great voice .... and she's sexy as hell to boot



aaaahhhhh im in love
Yeah, I saw them with Epica in 2007. They were pretty great live, but they'd probably be better now because their second CD is way better than their debut. And yes, she is sexy as hell. I got her to sign my CD when I saw them.

If you don't know, this monster turned 40 today. Amazing isn't it? In the span of 7 months, they released two albums that changed music forever and it continues to inspire bands to this day. None of these songs get old to me. I don't care how many times I hear them, the power is never lost. Fuck. What a band.

And while we gained a classic album we also lost a legend

There's alot going on with the "BIG 4" atm : Metallica - Slayer - Megadeth - Anthrax. The pioneer of Trash Metal supposively ... more like the best sellers to me.

It's a good combo but not my favorite for sure.

IMO only Slayer and Megadeth stayed relevant over the years. Metallica went commercial then tried to get back to their roots . Anthrax never recovered from losing Joey Belladona ( i've heard he's back now ). Dont get me wrong , Metallica and Anthrax are good band but i feel they dont represent the metal wave like they used to.

Personally , my BIG 4 would be : Slayer - Megadeth - Testament - Exodus ... never got tired of these 4

"A Tout Le Monde" is not my favorite Megadeth song , "In My Darkest Hour" is but the live performance in Montreal this summer was magic ... check at 3:00 , Mustaine doesnt sing because the crowd does !! awesome Megadeth loved the crowd so much that they did a free secret show later that night at Metropolis around 1am ... ppl got news of it thru twitter and stuff , only 200 ppl showed up. They played most songs they dont do while touring .... wtf did i miss that ? booh! They fucking played Mechanix !!!

I also have a soft spot for Suicidal Tendencies ... not including them because they changed so much over the years ( in a good way ) going from skater punk hardcore metal to pure trash metal then funky groove metal ( Metallica pulled the best robbery ever when they snatched Robert Trujillo from ST). If it was a top 5 , they would be there.

So what's your BIG 4 ?

My Big Four of Thrash would have to be...

Megadeth, Slayer, Sepultura (I love everything but the first two Derrick Green albums and I think Dante XXI is just as great as Arise or Beneath the Remains) and Overkill (Yes, I am one of those people who can actually stand Blitz's vocals)

Bobby Blitz fucking rules, one of the best vocalists in metal. Overkill are fucking UNTOUCHABLE live. Seriously one of the best live bands ever.

*Edit* On a side note, I'm listening to Godflesh's Selfless album at the moment, feeling like I'm 15 again. If you don't listen to Godflesh, you're missing out

I've been listening to Kamelot's new album, Poetry for the Poisoned, for the past few days, and I have to say, I'm kinda disappointed by it. It's not bad, but it just isn't that good. I'd say it is easily their weakest effort since The Fourth Legacy.

It has that normal, ultra-polished, sky-high production value of all their albums, but it just feels like filler. There really aren't any stand out songs, except for perhaps The Zodiac, but that kinda sounds like a Savatage song (of course, Jon Oliva singing helps you think that), aside from that it's just okay. Some songs even sound like duplicates of previous songs. I just feel like I've heard this album before.


As for The Big Four, the one band I never really got into was Slayer. I loved Seasons in the Abyss, but after that my enthusiasm plummets. I did enjoy God Hates us All, though. Anymore, I just find Slayer boring.

I'm not a huge Anthrax fan anymore, but I enjoyed most of their output. I haven't been keeping up with them; apparently they went through two singers right in a row after John Bush left.

I always thought of bands like Testament and Over Kill to be just outside of the Big Four. They are very popular, but just not quite big enough for that title. If it was called The Big Six, they would definitely be a part of it.

I never saw Anthrax live with Joey. I saw then in 98 with the singer of Armored Saint. It was ok but all my classic songs were Joey's era so i didnt like him too much ( let's say i didnt take the time to care ). That and they were headlining a local metal fest , playing AFTER Anonymus , Obliveon and Gorguts.

Saw then again in 08 at the Heavy MTL festival , it was another singer .... in the style of Fear Factory's Burton C. Bell (looks only ). I liked that one more ... he was awesome on Got The Time and Indians. I'm probably the only one thinking that since he didn't stay long in the band haha.

Overkill could be in the Big4 .... just only dig them in the Under The Influence/Horrorscope era. Death Metal called me after and i never looked back.

The big four will always be the big four but for me Death Angel and Sacred Reich have always been up there with them.

Yeah ... besides Slayer and Megadeth ( which have stayed true over the years) , the other 2 are pretty much wildcard.

Sacred Reich is nice ... loved The American Way ... but aren't they dead atm ( aka disbanded) or did they just made a comeback ?

They broke up in 2000 then got together a couple of years ago and payed some gigs. I don't think there's any plans to record again though.

Down in Oz we've got our annual Soundwave festival in March 2011. I've had my tickets confirmed and am absolutely stoked with the line up:

Iron Maiden - Haven't seen them since '92 Fear of the Dark and were my favorite band during the eighties.

Queens of the Stone Age - last time was the Big Day Out in '03. Last album was shit but the previous four rocked.

Slayer - Reign of Blood was the first extreme album I listened to

Monster Magnet - The first 3 albums defined drug rock

Melvins - The most underated band ever

High On Fire - I love Sleep so it's no surprise that I followed Matt Pike and they continually rock

Kylesa - A recent discovery, Static Tensions hasn't left my car cd.

Throw in:

The Sword
Primus
Slash
Rob Zombie

I'm not sure I can wait 5 months

A bit late to the party but never too late to post...

Yeah, I'm a metal fan though not a diehard. My best friends are all metalheads and years ago they introduced me to a lot of power metal, stuff like Hammerfall, Rhapsody (who are cheesy as hell but still fun), Edguy, and Annihilator... did anyone ever listen to Carnival Diablos? There's a song in there called Epic of War, where whoever happened to be the vocalist at the time (since they seem to switch singers every other album) does a killer Bruce Dickinson impression.

And of course, Iron Maiden, who are one of the best bands ever in my opinion... I've listened to some scattered songs off their newest album and they haven't lost their touch; When the Wild Wind Blows is fucking EPIC.

My friends later moved on to death metal, which I personally loathe, even though I admit the musicianship is good. I can't stand all the screaming and growling. I like the fact that Nile is into Egyptian imagery for example, but their music (if you can call it that) blows.

I'll give Opeth a pass though, just because of To Bid You Farewell, which is a downright beautiful song.

Other than that I stick to stuff like Metallica (yes, St. Anger was a piece of shit, Death Magnetic while not perfect is a step in the right direction), Megadeth, even though Dave Mustaine is an egomaniac and a douche, and Ozzy, you can't go wrong with Ozzy, the only time he seems to be alive is when he's onstage.

I also have a soft spot for classic/hard rock like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, and such...

And of course those goofy 80s hair metal bands, Poison, Bon Jovi, etc.

As for newer bands, I really like Disturbed, only because they seem to have grown out of the godawful nu-metal phase... these guys actually rock and Dave Draiman CAN sing... so yeah, they're good.

I've been meaning to get more into metal though, so if anyone has any recommendations in power/thrash metal or hard rock, please share!!

I tried to get tickets for Rammstein. They are doing 1 show at Madison Square Garden in Dec. The show sold out in 15 mins. I figured it would sell-out, but not that fast. I was on the site when the sale started, but I couldnt get through. Hopefully they do more shows!

Speaking of Rammstein, I was listening to one of their newest songs, called Pussy, which, correct me if I'm wrong, is the first one they sing in English?

Anyhow, the lyrics are hilarious. I nearly pissed myself during the "You have a pussy, I have a dicka, I can't get laid in Germany" part

They did a cover of Depeche Mode's "Stripped" in english. They did english versions of "Du Hast" and "Engel". Which were pretty bad. Theres also a live version they did of the Ramones "Pet Cemetary" floating around the net.
They also have a song in Spanish and one in Russian.

They also made a music/porn video for the song. At first it just has naked ladies and stuff, but by the end it shows all the band members actually having sex - porno style. Even the money shot(s). Can you imagine an American band doing that?

Funny how Rammstein has been mentioned but I've been listening to them a lot the past two, specifically, songs from their Volkerball performance a few years back which can be found at Youtube.
Example;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSx2b...eature=related (Sonne)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qydHf...eature=related (Links 2,3,4)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6I28...eature=related (Ich Will)

Now that would have been an amazing concert to see, these guys definitely know how to put on a fucking awesome show.

Hysterical. Which is why I only frequent a couple of sites, one for pure information, the other for opinions.

Apart from this forum of course, props to countchocula to putting me onto Opeth and Edge Of Sanity.

So how come no one has posted anything on this thread? Come on people, let's keep the metal train rolling!!

I guess I might as well... I've been reading Metal Hammer a lot lately - very fun read. It's also helped me discover a hell of a lot of new bands, some of which are utter shite, others which aren't so bad...

So here's some random thoughts... feel free to agree/disagree...

Airbourne - Sure, they're AC/DC clones, but I'm a huge AC/DC fan, so that's no problem. I just love rock n roll that was made to booze to.

Five Finger Death Punch - Sounds like a nu metal band. Meh. But I will say this, they have a decent vocalist. It's just great to hear some clean, understandable singing after so many bands go for the screaming/growling vocals.

Grand Magus - Reminds me of Judas Priest for some reason. Pretty good heavy metal and once again, thank God, clean vocals.

Sonic Syndicate - Crap. These guys would be an alt rock band if it wasn't for the screaming. Two vocalists who sound exactly the same. But at least they have a hot chick in the band.

Hellyeah - I don't like Mudvayne but had a blast with these guys. How can you not like a song called "Pole Rider"?

Skindred - MH went apeshit for these guys. I don't get it. It's basically a metal band with reggae vocals. And it sounds ridiculous.

Blind Guardian - Good to see epic power metal still alive and kicking.

They've definitely moved on from the stoner/doom of the first couple of albums. Priest is a good call coupled with Bathory's viking era.

You'll have to pardon my ignorance, I've only started to get back into metal after a lot of years, so everything is new to me... what's Bathory?

Grand Magus still rock though.

Bathory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathory_(band), was one of the original Black Metal bands in the early 80's before creating what became viking metal. Blood Fire Death and Hammerheart are two of the most essential metal albums of all time IMO. And yeah, GM seriously rock!

It was kind of...meh, honestly. It didn't have that same oomph that Unquestionable Presence did. And Kelly Shaefer's vocals don't stack up like they used to (but Unquestionable Presence is almost 20 years old, so that's forgivable). I need to give it another listen. It didn't blow me away like I had hoped. Anyway, Made Out of Babies' front woman Julie Christmas has a solo album out, and it's pretty fantastic. Not as good as MOOB or Battle of Mice, but still great nonetheless. That woman is a beast.

Saw Epica last night at The Palladium (2nd time I've seen them in three years), and the show was killer. The line-up was The Agonist, Blackguard, Scar Symmetry and Epica. It was great to see The Agonist with Epica again; they always put on a great show, and Alyssa looked amazing, as usual. Blackguard were probably my favorite performance of the night. I was familiar with them before last night, but never really gave them a hard listen. But holy shit, they put on an amazing show. Just totally full of energy. There were no less than like 8 people crowd surfing during their last song. I bought their (overpriced) debut CD to support them.

Scar Symmetry went on third, and they didn't do much for me. Just some mediocre melodic death metal with two vocalists. And Epica finished off the night was a fantastic (long) set. The last time I saw them in 2007, it was pretty barren. They've definitely blown up over the course of 3 years, because the place was fucking PACKED (they sold out the venue). Needless to say, the upstairs at The Palladium is WAY too small for them, although it did make for a more intimate show. Epica put on one of the best shows I've ever seen; they sound absolutely flawless live. And Simone looked and sounded wonderful. All in all, a great show. It's nice to go to a metal show for once that's not full of bros.
