    alestorm looks awesome.

    links are to youtube vids, which i hardly watched, leaving them open in tabs so i could listen to the songs. so sorry if the visuals suck.

    hope these weren't redundant or too obvious, and that you like 'em.

    Slough Feg, Twisted Tower Dire, Brocas Helm. That's the best American heavy metal you'll hear, hands down.

    Hammers of Misfortune!!! Brought to you by some members of Slough Feg, they're rockin' and super classic and have some AWESOME lady vocals sometimes.

    EDIT: BEfore the internet jumps to correct me, it's only ONE member of Slough Feg. And he's gone now. But a guy from Ludicra is in it.

    Hammers of Misfortune does rule, it's true.

    Also: shameless plug for my boyfriend's band (check out my album art!)

    That's the only track anyone's put up on Youtube, but it was finished less than a month ago, sooooooooooooo... That was fast.

    If y'all are interested, you can listen to the whole thing on Bandcamp and download it for FREE (or your named price if you're feeling generous).

    Hammers of Misfortune are pretty much great...they're from my neck of the woods.

    I am glad this thread was started, because I think I have enough new metal to wade through for the rest of the year.

    Icelandbob: I knew I was forgetting someone when I made my small list, and it was Solstafir.

    My heavier music tastes range from dark metal to songs with angry lyrics. Either way, bands rocking my boat at this precise moment are:

    Ill Nino
    Dimmu Borgir
    One Day as a Lion

    These are but a few. If you're interested in alternative music, you can always follow my music blog's Twitter account :)

    I didn't think it needed to be said.

    But now I'm worried no one's said it.

    Operation Ivy

    You could maybe try Lamb of God, Hatebreed, Otep or Crowbar for your metal fix. And I'll sling another recommendation for Devin Townsend in there, too.

    Awwwwwwww, Op Ivy!!! HOW could they have been forgotten?!?

    Jesus H, dork. Pyrrhon kicks my hairy hiney in a big way. I've been spreading the good word a bit today, hope there's a few dollars in it for the band.

    I agree with most of the recommendations so far but haven't seen:
    L.E.S. Stitches (NYC punk)
    The Threads (NYC punk)
    Darkest of the Hillside Thickets (Lovecraftian surf-punk)
    Threats (Scottish oi)
    The Plank Boys (defunct punk-rock)
    I had at least two more when I started this.

    Four songs of errata because your time is not unlimited.

    "Straight American Slave" by Rocket From the Crypt
    Stax Records, played by Southern California reprobates.

    "Belly Full Of Hell" by Planes Mistaken For Stars
    Frank Sinatra described rock as a "foul smelling aphrodisiac." He didn't know it, but he was talking about Planes. Video has kids fighting in it.

    "Light and Solitude" by Envy.
    Japanese post-screamo. Beautiful and towering in the same breath.

    "Trusty Chords" by Hot Water Music
