    Deathspell Omega are probably one of my favourites as well. I say 'probably' and 'one of', because every time I try to make a list I suffer by having to leave bands out. I consider them to be one of the epitomes of Black Metal as their lyrics actually go beyond "Hail Satan" (repeat: 666 times). That makes them far more powerful and empowering than the easy-going nature of the more punk-based black metal.

    Paracletus is wonderful. Personally, I think Si Monvmentvm is a bit easier to get into and the lyrics are easier to grasp. One of the things I appreciate is the fact that they're actually making proper use of the different languages instead of atrociously crooked latin etc. I'm still hunting SMRC on vinyl, but it's not that easy to get.

    As to lyrics, I think you'll find Anaal Nathrakh actually have lyrics that go a fair bit deeper than they might at first glance. Dave Hunt studied philosophy and has a tendency to include a smattering of references. The titles, album titles and the understandable bits are the clues to go dig deeper.

    I tried like hell to get into black metal but almost none of it stuck except all the ambient and depressive black metal. I just don't like most of the vocals or the production on some stuff.

    damn some of you people listen to some good stuff I mostly into black metal, NSBM, 80's-90's thrash (think Protector and Assassin) and folky type metal (korpiklaani, svara, skyforger). And I have always had a special place for Industrail music.. and I mean real Industrial none of that shitty ass fag dance crap they play in clubs now with all these retarded download only bands. fuck your downloads, be a man and make an album if your music is even worth listening to.

    I used to live in Edmonton and I really miss all the local metal there, Hails to Kriticos, Dead Jesus, Quietus and Mortillery.

    some other good stuff I like:
    Wintersun
    Immortal
    Rhapsody
    KMFDM
    Alkonost
    Valinor ( Polish )
    Dissection
    Faerghail
    Inquinok
    Wolven Ancestry ( awesome band from Sudbury )
    Sargeist
    I could go on forever

    Ah you can never get into Black Metal until it wants you to like it. I used to hate the shit, I thought It sounded like crap and the vocals were annoying as hell. However one day it jsut sounded great.. listened to some old BM bands and never looked back. Part of what made early black metal black metal was the shitty sound liek it was from hell. Most guys didn't have the means to make and record good music.

    Quorthon from Bathroy is the best example. He spent ALL of his money on his music and poured his heart and soul into it. The guy would record his music in a noisy warehouse BATHROOM with boxes of shit stacked all over and people working in the warehouse around him. Bathory is fucking great and has influenced nearly every metal band since he started to rock. Sadly Quorthon died of heart failure in 2004 we had petitioned to trade Brett Micheals for him back but the God's aren't cooperating haha

    I'm a sucker for anything that sounds as good as Dissection, I honestly think Dissection is my favorite DM band ever. The Somberlain is goshdarn perfect.

    Honestly I'd recommend this EP from DSO:




    Obviously it's intense and heavy, but it has some fantastic instrumental sections that actually get fairly melodic and make use of layered guitars perfectly.

    Sabaton - Power Metal, pretty good stuff. Art of War is a good album to start with.

    Animals as Leaders - Progressive Metal, instrumental. Some of their songs aren't metal at all, but songs like CAFO and Tempting Time are hot and sexy (if you like polyrhythms)

    Dream Theater - Progressive Metal. I'm sure everybody knows who Dream Theater is. Scenes from a Memory? Yes please.

    I think you'd like Cynic alot. Listen to either Traced In Air or Focus. Also that Deathspell Omega song was pretty awesome.

    What I've been into for the past few days:


    Recently found out this band is christian and the lyrics are pretty horrid. Doesn't change my opinion of them. This band is awesome!

    What I've been listening at least once a week since I discovered it:


    In Flames - Colony... easily in my top5 greatest albums of all time. I love this band, man. It's too bad their recent stuff sucks.

  13. #1053
    So many to choose,
    Kamelot:Probably my favorite band,blending metal and symphony to make awesome.
    Dream Theater:Amazing prog-metal.
    Rhapsody Of Fire:Epic, broad sword wielding,dragon slaying,power metal!
    Megadeth:My favorite of the big 4 thrash metal guys.
    Edguy:Because,it's Edguy.
    Anthrax:My second favorite of the 4,mostly because they do what ever the hell they want,and is usually awesome.

    (one man band)

    Neaera is fucking win.

    Listen to Prey to anguish, Paradigm lost, Armamentarium, God forsaken soil, etc. They all on youtube. It is of the "melodic metalcore" genre supposedly.

    Just grab the rest as well.

    The unholy trinity of Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice, Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum and Paracletus is a mind-boggling trip.

    I think I may do this, I wish my headphones were longer so I could fully appreciate it. Listening to Xasthur through speakers and not headphones sucks.
