  • Any fellow metalheads here?

    I'm a big metalhead as well as an ambient lover, anyone else the same? If so, what bands are you into?
    I'm into Thrash, Death, Black and Progressive Metal :maniac:. Also love shoegazey stuff too
    Actually metal played a part in getting me into ambient believe it or not :razz:

    I wouldn't say I am a metalhead, but I grew up around them. I was in a band in the mid-to-late 80's with 3 members wanting to be the next Motley Cru, and me wanting to be the next Velvet Underground.

    I enjoy things with a hard edged sonic assault, mostly from the catalogs of bands like Swans, Sunn 0))), Throbbing Gristle, etc. I also love me some good ol' Killing Joke.

    Shoegaze is one of my favorite genres.

      Must have been difficult having the other members wanting to go another direction. With my "band" I kind of want to go the more deathmetal route, but we're kinda stuck on thrash. Oh well :P
      Sunn O))), those guys are heavy. The drones are pretty incredible. I wonder what their live experience is like?

      I found this hidden gem: https://cloudscollideofficial.bandcamp.com/
      They're blackened shogaze, so there's a few blast beats and harsh vocals here and there but absolutely fantastic album.

        I like grindcore (Napalm Death, Repulsion,...) death metal (Cannibal Corpse) and doom (My Dying Bride).

          :D

          I was a bit of a Proghead in my teens, Rush and all that. Got bored of it and didn't really like the UK indie stuff at the time (The Smiths etc) so looked to America; Sonic Youth, Minutemen/fIREHOSE, Big Black, Husker Du (hell, learnt web coding by writing a Husker Du fan site ) I guess that lead to the post-hardcore/early post-rock stuff like Bastro, Bitch Magnet etc which certainly had some metal in their veins (well sonically at least without metals... eh... 'trappings'... ;)) Then later the math rock bands were pretty cool, I think Pelican are about the only 'metal' I've listened to in a decade or so...

              Napalm Death and CC are awesome! Haven't really listened to My Dying Bride though.

              Love all the extreme metal genres. I've been into a lot of Nile (tech death), Cattle Decapitation(death grind), Enslaved (black metal), Beyond Creation and Suffocation (tech death). Can't get enough of the crazy speeds, blast beats and intricate riffing.
              Doom metal wise, I mainly listen to Candlemass, Doom:VS, Woods of Ypres and Paradise Lost.

              I pretty much listen to all metal genres, but mainly technical death metal at this point in time. And I always have time for good ol Slayer.

              Slugdge is awesome! I'll download it right away!

                Prog is amazing, I actually started liking prog after listening to a lot of prog metal (Dream Theater, Devin Townsend Project, Opeth, Ihsahn, Meshuggah etc.). Porcupine Tree, Buckethead and Pain of Salvation are my main prog jams at the moment.

                Speaking of math, Mathcore is absolutely crazy.

                  I'm old though and prog in my teen years was the classics like genesis, yes, king crimson and the new pretenders like twelfth night, IQ, pallas... ie. more mellotron than metal.

                    I should probably listen to the classics. And I must admit yes, newer prog rock has more metal elements than it ever did.

                      Old metal: old Metallica, Krokus, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, that sort..

                      Nowadays, not so much since I had to quit playing guitar. :thumbsdown:

                        Anything by Black Sabbath pre-1976 is worth a listen. I don't listen to much of the old metal bands these days, except for Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Rush, and it's questionable whether these were actually metal anyway. I like the Opeth material from My Arms, Your Hearse through to Deliverance, Their subsequent recordings are great too, but not really metal.

                          Ahh the good stuff ;) Oh why did you have to quit? I'd hate to have to stop playing!

                            I've never been much of a metal head but have always loved early Black Sabbath, Vol 4 and Sabotage especially. Ministry is another, such as The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste, along with some of the side projects, though they're more industrial than metal I think. Killing Joke as well, Extremities had a big impact on me when it came out. Metallica's And Justice For All is an album that never gets old, haven't cared much for anything they've done since. Deftones I listen to now and then, they have some great cover songs too. Led Zep I like as well but considered them more rock, along with the Yardbirds(who were an even better band) and even Dred Zeppelin. Slayer..not something I listen to often but they've always been madly talented, not many bands in any genre who can top them.

                              ...And Justice For All is timeless. I think Master of Puppets had a much larger impact on me though. Really got me into the heavier side of metal.
