Re: Inspiring Metal Music

That's very good Jeff! Never heard of them before. I'll work on a AS&SH playlist as soon as I have a social life coming back my way. Being a Head Chef in a buzy restaurant in Montreal around Xmas season doesn't help hahaha http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png


I noticed you guys mentioned a couple of my dear friends metal bands in this thread. Especially Unexpect. Those guys (and girls) are like 13 peoples on stage... anyway all I wanted to say is that I love metal music and I'm really, truly happy to find this "Never noticed until tonight "Music"" thread! 

Let's put together a youtube playlist. Astonishing style!

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

While at The Love Garden (a used records and CDs shop in Lawrence, KS), I picked up two albums by The Sword (who coincidentally play live there next weekend), and two by the local KC band Merlin I discovered via a FB ad (you can check out their Electric Children album @ http://merlin666.bandcamp.com/ ).

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Sharing a great new band I discovered this past weekend at a music festival here in Iowa. The band is called 'Green Death' ... no shite ... they're called 'Green Death' ... (I thought I must share this with the group as soon as possible). They are an Iowa band and they fully shred ... think a modern take on old school Thrash Metal (early 'tallica ... Exodus ... Anthrax .. Testament ... Slayer ... those guys) ... Check 'em out if you dig that kinda stuff ... oh, and they have Cthulhu on their first album cover ... c'mon? what's not to like? http://www.greendeathband.com/web/

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

I recently obtained Symphony X's new album "Underworld".  Here's a sample.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZe-Pmgq9DY

It is inspired by Dante's Inferno.  Very good stuff, though not as "metal" as earlier albums, from what I've read.  This is my first exposure to their work.

Been a while since I listened to them. Thanks for reminding me!

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Why do I see this particular cover being popular on the Plain of Leng?

What? Me worry?

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

I think my day will be filled with listening to the Green Death (WTAF...great find ghul), Orange Goblin, Wo Fat, All Them Witches.

When did I get into stoner rock? I partially blame AS&SH for leading me into this. ;-)

Edit: As Ghul notes later in this thread, measuredrums turned us on to Greendeath

Good stuff! Yeah, the nomenclature is somewhat misleading, I think, because before I started listening to all these bands (I think the first one I discovered was Mastodon), the term 'stoner rock' would have conjured an image of sloppy music, but in contrast these bands are tight.

PS: credit "measuredrums" for discovering Green Death.

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

For more Hyperborea connections,  noticed that on Wo Fat's album, The Black Code, the last two tracks are "The Shard of Leng" and "Sleep of the Black Lotus".

Re: Inspiring Metal Music




This is no bullshit, that video is just about exactly like what me and buddies sounded like when we used to jam together in the late 80s.

Sounds like they spent some time fever dreaming and sweating in the same mines that Ghul did.

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

A bit more progressive influence on these guys.  I'm hearing Coliseum and Zep's Achilles Last Stand in there.

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Does anyone live within decent driving distance to Minneapolis/St. Paul (or live in the Twin Cities)? ... There's a great show at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis Monday night (10/10/16) ... http://first-avenue.com/event/2016/10/opeth ... 'Opeth' w/board favorites 'The Sword' opening! Can't make it myself ... just passing the word.
