    is anyone besides me really, really addicted to slipknot's psychosocial?
    as far as really heavy riffs...that one takes the cake in my book
    its fucking addicting

    oh and anyone else really like gojira?
    they have some really awesome stuff (see: flying whales, vacuity)

    flying whales has probably one of the heaviest riffs I've ever heard
    its just my opinion tho

    prepare for a bunch of people to tell you how bad slipknot is, even though everyone on this god forsaken board listens to ayreon and devin townsend. but don't get me wrong, slipknot is terrible

    I dislike all the bands mentioned in this thread. I've heard Flying Whales & was NOT impressed.

    I actually like some of Slipknot's first album. I think it was pretty creative and intense at the time. Not a big fan of them now. Psychosocial does nothing for me.

    Gojira is great! I love The Way of All Flesh album.

    The heavy parts of Psychosocial are really good but I can't stand when Corey tries to "sing".

    I'm a huge fan of Gojira. I prefer From Mars To Sirius over The Way Of All Flesh but both albums are good.

    I would've liked the new Slipknot album more if they didn't add a melodic hook every damn song.

    No offense, but I find Slipknot music too repetitive and simplistic (in a bad way) for my liking. I mean, it seems every song is tuned down a couple steps, a riff on a string or two, repeat, melody with some "singing" here, back to riff, etc.

    ^Yes, but everybody likes randomness! I know I do!

    -Slipknot... They have some good songs, yeah. Never tried to get much into them, some stuff sounds pretty horrid.
    -Gojira is a good band.
    -I liked atleast that one song by Mastodon, which is "The Wolf is Loose". Other songs were a bit less ok from my memory.
    -What ele has been mentioned? .... Rammstein, I see.... They're ok, got me into metal when I was a kid. Actually some really good stuff in it's own simple way.

    So am I supposed to name another metal band that is nothing like Opeth now?

    .........Electric Wizard, anyone?

    Wait, isn't this thread just a microcosm of this forum?

    Hell if I know. I just have Dopethrone. A guy I know said that the newest one is fantastic though. Maybe I'll get it some day soon.
