This is what I have been kicking around song and artist wise. What has everyone else been spending time with?

"Van Halen" by Nerf Herder is awesome. Perfectly expresses my disgust with the band after Dave was fired.

Yeah, they're really great with that. They're not top notch lyrically(though they've got a few gems), but even their songs with kinda sadistic lyrics are upbeat and put you in a good mood. Kinda weird. I'd recommend pretty much anything off their first two CDs.

They're pretty unique and I find it hard not to like'em. Plus 99% of their songs are catchy as hell.

Opeth is my favorite band, and you can't convince me there's a better band in the world right now. I love alot of music, from all over the genre spectrum, but these guys take my proverbial cake. They're a progressive metal band; equally influenced by 70's prog rock ala Camel and King Crimson, and death metal. Even if harsh, growled vocals aren't your thing, the prog community has accepted thier greatness. Currently, they are completely owning my whole being as I post wirelessly from thier concert in Lawrence, KS. This Swedish band recently signed to a US record label (the Godawful Roadrunner Records, unfortunately) and put out thier 8th album, "Ghost Reveries."

Agalloch is a heavily instrumental post-rock band from Oregon who'se second album, "The Mantle" is one of the most exquisite pieces of music I've ever heard. Download it and listen on a starry night.

The rest are various metal bands with albums Ive recently purchased. Nevermore and Kamelot = power metal, My Dying Bride and November's Doom = doom metal.

I forgot to add The Lord Weird Slough Feg and Pelican to the list as well. :)

Hmmm. I just got into them not too long ago. Someone mentioned that I should check them out.

I bought Seasons and Animosity and really liked them both. The lead singers voice takes a little bit to get used too (Sounded a wee too Opera rocky at first)

Very, very, very nice list. I'm going to see three of those bands on Sunday at the Chicago House of Blues - Fear Factory with Soilwork and Strapping Young Lad. It should be a killer show.

If you're a big metal fan, then the self-titled album is the one to get. As their career has gone on, each album has infused more of the softer elements. With that said, all of their albums are amazing, just in their own way. I saw them at Ozzfest in 1998 and then a few days later saw them play in a small movie theater in Champaign with Coal Chamber. It was one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen. There were only about 400 people there, but the energy in the room was off the charts.

Clint Lowery and DoubleDrive's Troy McLawhorn play guitar with Dark New Day (mentioned earlier). Along with Skrape's drummer.

Not quite as heavy as Sevendust, but suitably angry to get the job done.

I think there's also a former member of Stereomud in there somewhere as well. Clint Lowery was one of my favorite components of Sevendust so I was sad to see him go, but if it means there'll be another band putting out great music, then I'm content with it.

Sevendust is not metal. Not even in the same room. They, like most radio rock during the mid to late 90s, were identified as metal, sure, (or nu-metal; I hate that term, its misleading) but they don't make music that would fall under a metal subgenre definition. Straight up hard rock, really heavy hard rock with slight metallic influence, but hard rock nonetheless. Sorry for that, but as a metal fan, I'm a stickler for keeping non metal bands out of association with the genre. Knowledge is power.

BTW - At that Fear Factory/Soilwork/Strapping Young Lad show, SYL will amaze you. Devin Townsend's genius will exceed the combined efforts of the other bands, popular though they may be.

For the metalheads in the thread, my recommendations for metal are as follows:

Fear Factory
Machine Head - their new album - "Through the Ashes of Empires" has quickly become one of my favorite albums ever. They're also an amazing live band.
Soulfly - formed by Max Cavalera, former vocalist for Sepultura
Devildriver - formed by former vocalist for Coal Chamber, really heavy stuff
Killswitch Engage
In Flames

They, like most radio rock during the mid to late 90s, were identified as metal, sure, (or nu-metal; I hate that term, its misleading) but they don't make music that would fall under a metal subgenre definition. Straight up hard rock, really heavy hard rock with slight metallic influence, but hard rock nonetheless. Sorry for that, but as a metal fan, I'm a stickler for keeping non metal bands out of association with the genre. Knowledge is power.

BTW - At that Fear Factory/Soilwork/Strapping Young Lad show, SYL will amaze you. Devin Townsend's genius will exceed the combined efforts of the other bands, popular though they may be.

For the metalheads in the thread, my recommendations for metal are as follows:

Fear Factory
Machine Head - their new album - "Through the Ashes of Empires" has quickly become one of my favorite albums ever. They're also an amazing live band.
Soulfly - formed by Max Cavalera, former vocalist for Sepultura
Devildriver - formed by former vocalist for Coal Chamber, really heavy stuff
Killswitch Engage
In Flames

I was very impressed with "Through the Ashes of Empires." I love the first single off of it, "Imperium." Good stuff for a former nu-metal band adding more metal influence into thier work. Soulfly and Devildriver fall into this catagory, as well: metal influenced hard rock. The song structure doesn't completely match up with an aspect of metal.

Fear Factory, good stuff. They've being doing thier industrial hard rock/metal thing forever, now.

Killswitch Engage is one of the few Metalcore (that is, equal influence of metal and hardcore punk. I tend to enjoy the few metalcore bands that lean more towards the metal side) bands that I like. "Rose of Sharyn," and "Breath Life" are killer tracks.

I was never a big fan of In Flames, the only true metal band you listed. :) I don't know why, either. I mean, I like thier peers in the Gothenburg-style melodic death metal scene. (Soilwork, and especially Dark Tranquility and At The Gates.) But I never enjoyed thier material as much as I thought I would. They're highly influential, however, and thier older stuff is definately worth checking out. But I hate their newer stuff, especially their last album "Soundtrack to Your Escape."

I tend to agree, as I listen to alot of stuff that in almost unclassifiable, or at the least transcends a few genres at once. But if something clearly does not sound like what its being classified as, then my brain doesnt accept said classification.

ROFL, my guitarist buddy Patrick is almost the same way. He would listen to Tool, APC, and Pink Floyd. Exclusively. Love those bands, but mix it up a lil, right? I finally got him to expand his horizons a bit, and now he's always wanting me to burn him any new power metal cds I get. His car is playing alot of Blind Guardian and Angra now. Good for him.

It is pretty funny, because most "metal" music is very technical, almost rigid, in it's presentation. Your personality fits the type of music you listen to. :D

For some reason it's ironic to me that metal is so rigidly genrefied.

"No no. That's not hard metal, that's aggro metal."
"Aggro metal? Are you deaf! That's obviously thrashcore."
"Pish posh dear boy. It's not even close. If anything it's more like death metal."
"Baha! Death metal? There's not even a reference to death. I'd say its in the vein of scandinavian scum metal with a tinge of grey metal."
"Right-o, chap."

I'll listen to the same Motorhead album for 3 or 4 days over and over again. And then it's The Killers for 4 days. And then Fallout Boy. And then David Bowie.

ROFL ROFL ROFL That's about how it is talking with other metal fans, and on metal music boards. Perfect.

Btw - for general education purposes. the true metal subgenres are as follows (anything else is a blend that doesn't get its own name) and a few examples:

Heavy Metal - Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath

Thrash Metal [Heavy metal with a slight punk rock influence] - old Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer

Power Metal [Very melodic, with hightened speed] - Blind Guardian, Helloween, Kamelot

Death Metal [extremely technical, yet very influenced by free-form Jazz. Vocals done in harsh growls] - Cryptopsy, Entombed, Psycroptic

Melodic Death Metal [combines the melodic elements of power, with the vocal stylings of death] - In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Amon Amarth

Black Metal [very abrasive, almost no melody, though mroe melodic bands encorporating symphonies exist. Vocals are screamed, shrieked in general] - Emperor, Enslaved, Dimmu Borgir

Progressive Metal [progressive rock with equal influence of a metal subgenre] - Dream Theater, Opeth, Pain of Salvation

Doom Metal [very slow, depressing music. HEavily inspired by Sabbath] - My Dying Bride, Earth, High on Fire

And if you want to count it, Metalcore [equal influence of metal and hardcore punk] - Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid

Each of these sound compeltely different than the other. They are different forms of music. I could get even a little more technical than that, with things like New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Symphonic Black, Drone/Doom, or Stoner Rock/Doom. But each of those sounds/movements fall into one of the above subgenres.
