    @chris g

    That is awesome. I saw NIN on this last tour, but I've never managed to see Dillinger live. I'm pretty sure that would be one of those shows where I would lose all sense of self-preservation and feel no pain until the next day.

    If you like the new wave of Crossover Thrash like Municipal Waste etc, check these guys out.
    Cross Examination - Fun stupid thrash about beer, pizza and weed.

    And I'm sure most of you Doom/Stoner fans are anticipating the arrival of Shrinebuilder, if not then you are damn fool!

    CROSS EX played a storage unit here and kept asking people for peyote i guess...touring bands actually do that a lot in AZ. its not really prevelant. in fact ive never even seen anyone with some. ( i have seen them after theyve taken some though haha)

    From what I hear, the release date for the Shrinebuilder album is 10/27. I am definitely looking forward to that.

    @Giles - I had NOT heard of either band.

    Cross Ex sounds like D.R.I. with a lil old Anthrax in the mix to me. Fun stuff.
    The Shrinebuilder track isn't too shabby either. Thanks for the tips.

    This is exactly what I was hoping this thread would be like; a mess of mixed metal.

    The Divinity of Oceans

    Ahab - The Divinity of the Oceans, a little less harsh funeral doom and more with melodic old school clean-vox Katatonia'ish melodies - me like.

    I've been disinclined to post in here, as there's a good chance that you all know more about metal than I do (though I could probably hold my own in a similar punk thread). But I figured, just in case, you should probably hear these guys. Metal-wise, I pretty much only listen to these guys, Meshuggah, Tool, Metallica, and maybe another band here and there that my brother-in-law plays while we're in the car.

    Gojira is fantastic. I'm citing their stuff in a paper I'm working on about heavy metal and philosophy.


    I would love some new Doomriders. I still get that first track off the old LP stuck in my head for no reason. That lead riff is catchy as hell.

    @ Sleestak - I take it you've heard the bands that make up the members of Shrinebuilder?

    Some other stuff I was listening to today:

    Negura Bunget Romanian folk/Black Metal. "Om" was one the best albums in 06/07, definitely head and shoulders above a lot the cliched BM doing the rounds these days.

    VHK/Galloping Coroners Tribal/Psychedelic Hungarian shaman hun rock! I picked up their album Dancing With The Sun a few years ago at a Neurosis show. Their back story is pretty interesting. Easiest album to get is said album available on Neurot recordings.

    Oxbow Not exactly metal, but still I love this band and am finally seeing them just before my birthday. The Love That's Last compilation comes with the documentary DVD music for adults which is brilliant.

    eh, dont stress, as far as im concerned every band ive talked about in here is a punk band anyway...ive just been trying to avoid the delineation conversation and drop some powerviolence/hardcore bands into a conversation they would normally be left out of.

    What up metal thread? Where did you come from (or perhaps, more accurately, where have I been?)

    I just got off a tour with BATTLEFIELDS from North Dakota/Minnesota and OVERMARS from Lyon, FR .

    We played with/hung out with some pretty rad bands on the road.
    Rosetta (Philly)
    Irepress (Boston)
    Mortals (Brooklyn)
    the Atlas Moth (Chicago)

    Also, we played with a band in Pittsburgh called "Bearskull" which was comprised of three dudes with microphones, one of whom played the drums and it basically amounted to three guys screaming their brains out while the one guy also played drums. They introduced one of their songs like this: "*Huff* One time *Puff* there was this *huff* this guy *puff* Whothoughthewasawolfthissongisaboutthat" (13 seconds of screaming/cymbals) End. I wasn't really into it at the beginning, but the more I think about it, the more I really like Bearskull.

    Also, while we're talking about French metal bands, this has gotta be close to the top of my list for metal records this year:

    Aussitot Mort - Mort Mort Mort

    @bryce i totally want to see BEARSKULL now.

    speaking of strange bands, has everyone on here heard HATEBEAK and CANINUS? the HATEBEAK 7" "beak of putrefaction" is probably the only record in the parrot-metal sub genre. seriously. its a parrot singing. ill give you one guess who sings for CANINUS.
  5.  (6530.136)
    wee puppies! i prefer hatebeak to caninus, also didn't realise the pig destroyer/hatebeak connection 'till i read that awesome article on 'em earlier on in the thread...

    @Giles, oxbow are incredible live, Eugene Robinson is a nutter. saw them support isis a while back and he joined them onstage a few times. not to sing or play anything mind you, just was walking around the stage like a lost homeless person.

    Eugene is the best dancer ever! I strongly recommend his book "Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking".
    • CommentTimeSep 22nd 2009
    @joe is Caninus the band that has two pittbulls for vocalists?

    Also, does it sometimes sound to you like Jacob Bannon is a starved cheetah being tortured?
    • CommentTimeSep 22nd 2009
    @Brycemidas, the guitarist in Rosetta was my TA freshman year.

    Small world.
