    Unrelated to metal but related to famous TAs from college: I had a TA my junior year who ended up being Tay Zonday of "Chocolate Rain" interwub fame. Although I would really like to see him front a metal band.

    Related to Metal: What are peoples' thoughts on bands like Black Mountain? I have had several conversations with metal dudes who absolutely despise Black Mountain and other kind of throwback metal groups, but I thoroughly enjoy 'em.

    @Giles - I was NOT aware of Shrinebuilder's line up until I looked it up after your post. It's basically a metal supergroup, isn't it? Thanks again!

    @brycemidas - Very nice links. Battlefields sound great. I loved that Aussitot Mort track. And Bearskull ... they sound like so much damn fun.

    @joe.distort - I had heard of Hatebeak via that great Pig Destroyer article but hadn't heard them until I read your post and felt compelled this time around. I was kind of stunned at how good it sounded for a "novelty" band. Same with Caninus. Not something I'd listen to regularly, but still ...

    Looking for through a few threads here I can see quite a few Neurosis fans kicking about...found this on Youtube. Basically it's them at their peak (Souls At Zero- Through Silver In Blood era)

    It is time for Viking Metal:

    Amon Amarth - With Oden on Our Side and Twilight of the Thunder God

    A friend introduced me to Amon Amarth a few months ago and it has enjoyed heavy rotation since.

    My apologies if anyone else mentioned these bands already.

    iwresteldabearonce -

    Knives Out! -

    Dog Fashion Disco -

    Screaming Mechanical Brain (Formerly Screaming Monkey Boner)-

    Bad Acid Trip -

    Nothing gets the blood boiling like Gin and Finnish Viking Metal.
    • CommentTimeSep 26th 2009
    Shouldn't Finnish bands drink aquavit?

    @brycemidas - Do you mean you were actually playing on that tour? Now I'm double pissed I didn't get to go to Chicago. I haven't talked to Andy or Rob in forever. And missing a chance to say hey to one of my favorite "It's a small world" internet compatriots? Pissed.

    Anyway, I can also vouch for Battlefields's awesomeness. Pretty much every band those guys have been in has been awesome, and I'm glad this one's going somewhere.

    @rickie Nope, I was gonna fill in on bass but our friend Casey from Weather is Happening/Rickyfitts nabbed that duty so I was basically just a translator for Overmars/dude who got wasted and yelled a lot. The Chicago show was awesome though, we basically drank until our brains fell out.

    Also Rob and I watched almost all of Battlestar Galactica in the van during that tour and are now finishing the last few episodes, I will holler at him for ya.

    Black Cobra and Doomriders both have new records out. They are fucking great.

    I was actually hesitating on throwing DFD on here, since I feel a little out of my element reading this thread. SMB doesn't strike me as "metal" but the longer I sit here and think about it the more it makes sense.

    Since I'm here: Look What I Did, especially their album, "Minuteman for the Moment". Everything I've heard of their upcoming album ("Atlas Drugged", out Feb 2nd) suggests they're going in a punk-ier direction.

    Holy shit. Converge does not disappoint.
    Edit: They are pissed about the album leak though...

    Has anyone mentioned Hammers of Misfortune already?
    I call it "Ren Faire" Metal...
    • CommentTimeOct 5th 2009
    Ohhh, seconding the Hammers of Misfortune. I've only heard a few songs, but they are super fun.

    They are pretty fucking nuts. This song makes me want to put a sledgehammer to an infant. Not sure if they can be classified as metal as they sound a bit like doomy Melvins stuff. Enjoy!

    If you can get down to see them, do it.
    Your hearing will go and you will feel slightly ill.

    And if you feel like it go listen to Oceansize, which is what the lads from Kong do as a day job.
