    @Fauxhammer: I use a combination of Blabbermouth, Bruce Dickinson's Friday Rock Show, Terrorizer Magazine and the hashtag #metal on twitter.
    @joe.distort: me linking it. Never heard of'em
  2.  (6530.5)
    the best powerviolence/grind band in the US right now!
  3.  (6530.6)
    also check out LANDMINE MARATHON, KYLESA, CONVERGE, GRAF ORLOCK and GENGHIS TRON. i dont listen to a ton of straight up metal...

    @ Joe.Distort

    We all know you manlove for HATRED SURGE is intense and all encompasssing. It´s even more weird that i´ve heard if ORLOCK AND GENGHIS TRON!

    Anyway here are some band from the local Metal scene here....

    Solstafir - Post metal band.

    Plastic gods - Doom/Sludge metal. Know the bass player very well. Very popular with the metal scene here

    severed crotch - Probably the best death metal band in Iceland at the moment. And i also know the bass player here very well also!

    Swords of chaos - screamo Hardcore punk. Seen as the local next big thing...

    and last but not least Myra who are my mates band. Only do 3 shows a year, but they do a very nice line in alternative metal (i.e. - very quiet to start, builds to shattering noise)

    @joe.distort I can see what you mean after checking out all those bands. Thanks! I wasn't that aware of this "non-straight-up-metal" new genre :)

  5.  (6530.9)

    @icelandbob - Love the Plastic Gods track. I'm a sucker for some metal sludge. Ever check out Yob? Great local doom metal band that made it biggish before breaking up.

    @joe.distort - Liked the Landmine Marathon stuff. Thanks for that. Ghengis Tron was a sweet treat too.

    Anyone enjoying the newish wave of thrash metal that's been coming out?
    Bands like:
    Warbringer
    Skeletonwitch
    Evile
    Municipal Waste (only really new to me)

    @Fauxhammer Liquid Metal's still kicking. I've heard of Winds of Plague for the first time through there. Unfortunately, after watching the video, I want to stab the lead singer in the head with a soldering iron.

    (As mentioned in another thread,) I've been on a huge sludge fest lately. So it's been all:

    Melvins
    Buzzoven
    Crowbar
    Acid Bath
    Iron Monkey

    Along with assorted other bands that sort of orbit the sound, Soilent Green, Neurosis, etc.

    Horse The Band

    well if we can throw in HOLY MOLAR and THE BLOOD BROTHERS, straight up emo-violence, than my suggestions dont go TOO far astray.

    NEIL PERRY

    Kylesa's last album (Static Tensions) is one of the only "metal" albums I've bought in years. It is just great.

    If we're coutning The Blood Brothers in this area (I disagree, but whatever) then I recomend An Albatross, especially Blessphmy, though Family Album has The Electric Proletariat Rides a Velvet Chariot, which is made of awesome *ahem* rawk!

    Moletopopolis by Deathmøle (QC creater Jeph Jaques ficitional band) is pretty cool. Metal instrumentals about unicorns.
