Got too many to link, but these are my current top 3
Blinded by fear by At the Gates (i live one block from the singer, best band EU)
Somberlain by Dissection
Hail murder by Dark Funeral
as a bonus, heavy metal rudolph the rednosed raindeer
Tech Death time
A one-man tech death band
In my top albums released last year
Thought this was pretty cool
Cant post links yet, but you should checkout www youtube com watch?v=iJ6aUPtMg0A
So, I guess in that respect, maybe melodic death metal is more 'entry-level', but they can still crank out face-melting riffs while actually sounding musical, so I'm fine with that. :P
That was the basic idea behind the thread, I think, Harry Botter
YOUTUBE WORKS AGAIN!!!!!
I was so lost without you.
Hail Thor-show thy might. Let thunder roar and lightning strike!
Hurl thy hammer into the fray. And let thine enemies know fear this day!
VICTORY, OR VALHALLA!!!
This page needs some hevy devy
every dream I have wants me to stay
Vorum - Carved In Dead Flesh
Death/Grindcore, i don't really know/care about genres, close enough and so on.
Avael - Level 90 Druid - Al'Akir EU
My worthy discoveries of the week.
Diskord - Doomscapes [sample]
An album for people looking for some strange, unique technical death metal (not show-offy stuff) that still has a bit of that old school sound.
Tyrant Trooper - Insane Sickness [sample]
Nothing unique about this one, just straight, pure old school US DM with some pretty great catchy riffs.
Dødsengel - Mirium Occultum [sample]
Very solid black metal album; it's raw but still has great production. The song I linked above is 20 minutes long but despite it's length never gets boring, that's gotta say something. Recommended to any black metal fans out there.
Rites of Thy Degringolade - An Ode to Sin [sample]
I love the production of the drums on this one. Great death/black metal albums with a chaotic twist.
Bongripper - Satan Worshiping Doom [sample]
Instrumental doom metal, sounds boring but it isn't. Music you can lean back and enjoy while smoking a doobie.
Thantifaxath - 2011 Demo [sample]
Intense, riff based black metal from Canada. Great stuff considering it's their first demo. I like the fact that you can clearly hear the bass in their songs.
Brocas Helm - Defender of the Crown [sample]
This band has been around for sometime now (31 years to be exact) but this is the first time I've bothered to listen to any of their songs; I'm glad I did; this is cheesy, epic heavy metal at it's finest. Fans of the genre should check this out if they haven't already.
Pretty good week, wouldn't you agree?

Is it just me or Black Metal bands don't make much use of solos in their songs?
That and a lot of the musicians simply weren't capable of doing solos.
Not that that's saying a lot - quite a few Death / Thrash solos consist of nothing but whammy bar divebombing.
There is a band that i can never get enough of. This band is called Alexisonfire. Whenever i listen to this band memories of when i was younger and my high school years just come up. Such a strong nostalgic feeling from these guys. They broke up not too long ago (sadly). But their older stuff is genius. The clean vocalist ( singer of city and colour) has a voice that cures cancer :O.
I strongly encourage anyone that hasn't listened to them before, to do so.
Also the most epic intro i've ever heard in any type of metal song- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SVZB2sWye0
Damn, i love this band.
And all around most epic song ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNq77...eature=related
