The ES Heavy Metal Thread


Recommended Posts

A genius among metal and industrial music, Tristan Shone, discussing his "band" called Author & Punisher. He makes everything himself. I believe he toured with Tool recently. Anyway, he creates the heaviest sound in the known universe. * Edit - I should add that if you have the right set up and bass in your car, truck, etc. (or doorless Jeep in my case) you will shake every other car around you off the road.

Probably one of the better covers I've heard.  Didn't know Fishbone was still around.  Loved these guys back in the 90s and saw them live a couple times.  Glad they're still around.  Fish is still one the best metal drummers out there.  Makes me want to back and listen to "Give a Monkey a Brain.."

I know CoB might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but their first four albums were hugely impactful on me as I expanded my range in metal.  Absolute virtuoso on guitar.  One of the all-timers.

 

Not a Children Of Bodem fan, but I was familiar with his talent.  I probably was most familiar with him because of some of the work he did with Warmen.  I also remember him being one of the 12 guitarists on 12 Donkeys.

But seriously, the hottest riffs to drop recently is the new Gatecreeper.  8 songs, 18 minutes...but it’s really 7 one minute grind/death bangers and 1 eleven minute Doom epic.  Highly recommended.

I've been having a hard time finding newer bands that I like. I want that feeling when I first heard Devin Townsend's - Terria, Porcupine Tree's - Signify, Opeth's - Still Life and a few others. I haven't had an album on repeat since about 2006? It was Porcupine Tree's - Fear of a Blank Planet. While I know Porcupine Tree aren't heavy metal, I just want that emotional connection to the music. I'm just not getting that anymore. I listen a lot, and I listen to tons of new bands, but there just isn't an emotional connection to anyone.

 

Gojira's - Another World was just another Gojira song. But, Born for One Thing is badass. Plus JoeGira is letting his hair grow out again - that's not a bad thing.

 

Some newer bands I'm enjoying:

 

New album by Baest today. A lot thrown into this 4 1/2 minute song

 

 

I'm liking DVNE. I'm interested in their future. They seem like they are heavily influenced by Mastodon.

 

I don't think many people know about Garganjua. They do the clean vocals and growl thing, but they're music is close to doom territory.

 

 

A little black metal:
