i'm in a coffin
> I like metal
> pls give gud bands
This is like asking for recipes when you like milk.
Work yourself through the most popular bands of every sub-genre, that sounds appealing to you. If you found, what you were looking for, dig deeper and listen to whole albums. There is much good metal music for acquired taste, filling niches and exploring extremes. The most popular songs of bands often misrepresent their usual style, regardless if metal or not.
Uh, I didn't want to write that so harshly. With the large variety even within this genre however recommendations will inevitably go unheeded.
Anyways the albums that got me into metal where "Once" by Nightwish (melodic metal, a style of music I could even enthuse my parents for), "Iron"/"Ensiferum" by Ensiferum and the "Nordland" albums by Bathory (both folk/pagan/viking metal). (see >>552
The best way to find out what you like best is to learn the history of metal. Listen to the original bands, then move on to the sub-genres that started to appear in the 80's and 80's. I'd highly recommend Black Sabbath as a place to start, seen as they created heavy metal.
What bands do you already listen to?
There's a lot of variation between the various genres of metal, in the same way that The Beatles and Frank Zappa can both be considered 'rock', yet sound nothing alike.
My advice is to find charts like these, containing some of the classics within genres and subgenres of metal. Maybe you've heard some of these before and want to find similar bands? Or maybe you want to simply find some good albums to get you started somewhere.
In any case, I have considerably less of these than I thought I did so maybe other sushi rolls can post some, or have a lurk through /mu/ if you're interested
too bad they're so friggin' boring now
in fact i was watching an interview with tony and elias today(well just tony, elias never talks quiet guy), and they basically confirmed it's got one power metal song on it and the rest are tony kakko christmas rock snoore fests with too much acoustic guitar
i really like power metal though, it's some of the catchiest music on the planet along with punk rock. i always felt that skater punk guys would like power metal if it wasn't cheesy and had songs about doing kickflips instead of slaying dragons. actually i thought about making a skatepunk power metal band, does that even exist?? ok im rambling here's a good cain's offering song, one the 2 million bands jani(ex-SA guitarist) plays in now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAykkIGtIdc

fuck forgot to mention it was an interview about their new album.
Didn't even realize they were still doing music.
There are plenty of crossover hardcore bands, who were hardcore punk mixed with thrash metal. And they were pretty associated with skate culture iirc. If you haven't heard it before, the classic stuff is bands like Suicidal Tendencies and Cro-Mags, even Bad Brains got a little more metallic later in their discography. There's heaps of modern acts too, like Municipal Waste. Not sure about punk mixed with power metal though.
Yes, I love the last track of the Earth 2's album, it's a real good drone piece.
Tyranny - Tides Of Awakeninghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_SPphEU2lM
This album is good if you're into Lovecraftian stuff, it's something to drown into
I can't stand metal anymore to be fair, but I can give some suggestion for good black metal bands if you're into that
>>847>I can't stand metal anymore to be fair
If I may ask, what led to this?
Eyehategod (southern rock + sludge)
Cattle Decapitation (Death Metal, for the two newest releases)
Batuhska[Батюшка](Gregorian Chants + Black Metal, only first release)
Rings of Saturn(Deathcore)
These are a bit spread out genre wise. Hopefully someone can find something here they like

Hard to explain without sounding like a prick but years ago, as I dug more and more into sub-genres of electronic music, I got so fed up with extreme metal that t this day I get irritated listening to gritty stuffs for a few minutes. I feel like from al the different ways to express savagery, darkness and brutality they chose the less efficient one. I don't know, maybe I went into the wrong genre for the wrong reasons to begin with, or I'm just older and don't need that much distortion AND 200BPM anymore.
Things like this caught my interest :
SNTS - Ancestral Reflectionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LX4AGCUlrDA
But I'm still listening this from time to time :
Paysage d'Hiver - Molochhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xn1nWhF9hY
(And Mgla's Presence EP is very good)
municipal waste was one of the first gigs i ever went to and the promoter almost shut it down cause they were telling people to jump off a balcony in the venue. i think they were trying too hard to be cool and extreme and everyone there was embarrassed for them.
Did this happen to be at Alley Katz in RVA? I saw them there several times before the venue shut down, and people jumping from the balcony was a constant issue. Had quite a concussion from a guy landing on me there at one of their shows.
Ensiferum new albums are all shit tbqh, Victory Songs was their last good album
really nice black metal. thank you youtube recomendations
