    On a more serious note, Pitchfork's best Metal of 2011:

    What do you think? I love seeing YOB, Ulcerate and Wolves in the Throne Room up there.

    And look what I stumbled upon on Pitchfork:

    I felt this thread lacked some symphonic and melodic music, so i decided to join in.



    and on the contrary:

    The biggest mistake one can make, is not admitting when you're wrong.

    I felt this thread needed more *GOOD* metal so I decided to join in.







    Have you ever wondered about if your mom ever kissed you goodnight after giving your dad a blowjob?

    You are now.

    Ha, that song was the first one I heard from them and I liked it instantly.

    ...so why did you only post one good song? Shoulda kept the Vektor and added some old Queensryche or Overkill for example.

    No I don't wanna post shit music.

    Actually I'm joking but you probably aren't, which is sad because that makes you just a narrow minded prick. Unexpect is amazing in its own way, and if you think otherwise then you have a particularly sad view on what constitutes good music.

    ...And that's what happens when you insult people for their taste in music. Let's keep it friendly, even though this is a Metal thread.

    Unexpect had bad vocals(the female singer being less appealing than the growls, which I wouldn't have expected to think), which itself I could tolerate, but they also sounded very disjointed. If they'd get a little more cohesion I wouldn't object to them but the song you posted there sounds like they were recording 2 or 3 different songs and just decided to mash them together. It's a common problem a lot of more "typical" prog bands have as well, and I don't like it when they do it either.

    Also, yeah I'm totally narrow minded. That's why in this thread alone I've posted power, prog, thrash, death, folk, and classic old school heavy metal, and still haven't covered all the subgenres I listen to. And that's just in regards to metal. Since this is a metal thread, I haven't posted any of the punk, classic rock, country, classical, or other non-metal stuff I listen to.

    Good stuff, thanks for sharing. Though, I didn't seen Cormorant on there anywhere, and for a 2011 top 40 list it should've been in there somewhere, but maybe the author hasn't heard the album or of the band. Tombs, Ulcerate, YOB, 40 Watt sun all seem to be consistent top 10 albums of the lists I'm seeing, and rightfully so.

    It actually started out being drunk and listening to powermetal, but then it descended into digging out my W.A.S.P., Queensryche, and Bruce Dickinson albums:

    Hate it when they put the damn stickers on the actual CD jewelcase instead of the plastic wrapper.

    Still, receiving Tombs - Path of Totality, Wolves in the Throne Room - The Celestial Lineage and Nader Sadek - In The Flesh in the same package is plenty reason to be joyful.

    Please do go on, because so far all I see is a bunch of lame and/or metalcore bands.

    I'm just not a huge fan of bands that are formed to imitate the sound of other bands. I see most of those bands developed a 'three/four word name' as a general warning sign, which is much appreciated. I'm not a fan of metalcore as, generally speaking, either the metal part has been done better (or even worse, it's just rehashing Slayer / At The Gates riffs) and the hardcore part has been done better. I'm not a huge fan of djent as it's mostly a repetition in morse code without any sort of groove to it and the actual concept of 'song' seems to have been ignored. Additionally, I'm not a fan of bands that have a sound made to appeal to as large a group of people as possible (FFDP).

    Turisas
    Windir

    And some much less known bands like Brymir, Northland, Wulfgar, Wolfchant, etc.
