The Thread Where You Talk About Music You Like

Talk about any bands you love here. Feel free to recommend stuff to each other. Get along. This is in direct contrast to the multitude of useless, silly "war" posts lately.

Well currently I'm spunking my boxers over...

Watain - Casus Luciferi
Nattefrost - Blood and Vomit
Deathspell Omega - Inquisitors of Satan
Blood Red Throne - Affiliated With The Suffering
Amon Amarth - Once Sent From The Golden Halls
Morgion - Cloaked By Ages, Crowned In Earth
Ulver - Nattens Madrigal

I would ask for recommendations but to be honest, I have no idea of what I really want at the moment

I've been listening to:

Deathspell Omega - Si Monvmentvm Reqvires Circvmspice
Blut Aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God
Spawn of Possession - Cabinet
Maudlin of the Well - Bath and Leaving Your Body Map
Immolation - Close to a World Below
Demilich - Nespithe
Nokturnal Mortum - Lunar Poetry
Graveland - Thousand Swords

This is the metal I've been listening to lately. I've been on a black metal spree for awhile since I got Deathspell Omega's latest.

Non-metal I'm listening to:
John Scofield - Up All Night
Muse - Absolution
Autechre - ep7
Aphex Twin - RJD album
Miles Davis - The Bitches Brew Compilation
Messiaen - The Bird Album

It'd be cool if people recommended more brutal tech death, avantgarde metal, black metal with excellent songwriting, I already know quite afew, more wouldn't hurt at all.
Also some jazz, classical and electronic ambient recommendations would be sweet. Thanks.

I just got introduced to Agalloch and holy shite...I'm pretty much blown away. I appreciate everyone listing all the bands that are a little hard to find because I would not have heard of them otherwise. I've also got Opeth in my player and Samael and Primus.

Can anyone suggest any starter death metal bands that don't sound like carbon copies of each other? I'm interested in Demilich but can't find any of their stuff to download. I've got Soulseek but it never seems to work.

Recently I've been in a progressive mood and I have been playing a lot of Devin Townsend, Symphony X, Dream Theater and Ayreon. I have a question though, I was at the cd store today and was considering buying a dismember cd, but i wasn't sure if they were just generic death metal or not, could someone help me out here.

Most of the Dismember albums sounds kind of generic to me, however "Death Metal" is a fucking awsome album. Get that if you can find it.

I forgot to comment on the albums I listen.

Soul Reaper "Written In Blood"...great album overall

Opeth "My Arms, Your Hearse" and "Deliverence"..DAMN! I haven't heard a bad Opeth Album yet. These two are heavy, both musically and emotionally. I also watched the "Lamentations" DVD finally yesterday, very impressed with it. Very mesmerizing.

Behemoth "Zos Kia Cultus"...good death metal.

Shakti, w/ John McLaughlin...non-metal, kin d of jazzz rock stuff. very impressive to me.

Obscenity "Cold Blooded Murder"...first time i have heard these guys, I would like to hear more.

Pelican "Austrilasia"...very good instrumental album.

Unleashed "Where No Life Dwells"...also, first time i have heard these guys, I would like to hear more.

Dimmu Borgir "For All Tid"...i have heard this one before, also impressive. a must own for every Dimmu Borgir fan.

  • Watain is great
    I've been wanting to hear that Nattefrost album
    DS Omega's albums are all excellent
    Blood Red Throne is great
    That Morgion album is absolutely godly

As for recommendations...based on what you like already:
  • Amduscias' solitary self-titled album. Excellent Japanese BM
    Maniac Butcher's Lucan - Antikrist album. Good Czech BM
    Wall of Sleep's Slow, But Not Dead album. Great trad. doom...and...
    Axis of Advance. Either of their albums. Canadian 'militant' black/death

Avant-Garde: Kekal (weird psychedelic drum machine BM/prog), Teen Cthulhu (symphonic hardcore, but avant-garde nonetheless), Earl Shilton (Bolt Thrower drummer's side project), !T.O.O.H.! (progressive-sounding grind)
Black Metal with excellent songwriting: Astrofaes, Gontyna Kry, Ashen Light, Thunderbolt, Weakling, Silencer

Excellent band. All 3 of their albums are amazing, schizophrenic, and sound great.
