Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Demiurge - these are great!

The guys below have supplied the soundtrack of my life for the past decade, their name says it all:

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Ghul - it's uncanny that you posted the LUCIFER'S HAMMER video this morning. I literally tripped over them last night while painting minis and YouTubing through some various metal channels. I was certainly intrigued. They kept my attention for quite a while. Great sounding 'old school' metal from a relatively new band - and from Chile to boot. \m/

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

I dig it. They sound good. I'm loving the Latin metal these days. There's been a pretty big resurgence. Jose Mangin from Sirius Satellite Radio has been pushing it quite a bit.

Indeed. It was pretty popular in my circles, too.

and it was my favorite album as soon as it hit the local rock station here in Atlanta. Still a favorite band to this day. Their revival was amazing with Mark on vocals! I was fortunate enough to see them for the first time since the METAL HEART tour for that revival when they headlined one night of a local metal fest that I work. It goes without saying then that I was able to meet a guitar hero at long last! Yeah, that's me below grinning like a jackass eatin' briars with Wolf Hoffman. :D

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

I've been meaning to make my way back in here for some time now to turn you New Wave of Traditional Metal supporters onto a band I've discovered in recent weeks: Children of the Reptile from Wilmington, NC.

I've been rocking out with these guys for a couple of months now. Here's a track from their first self titled full length album:

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

GATEKEEPER  - a Canadian band I literally tripped over this morning is another throw-back to early 80's studded leather, bullet-belt speed/heavy metal, spouting lyrics inspired by cosmic/fantasy authors we know and love. They just had the great honor to perform at the latest KEEP IT TRUE Metal fest in Germany this weekend. Latest full album can be heard here:




and over here at their Bandcamp page - please support by purchasing if you enjoy enough. \m/

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Indeed, RIP Vinnie Paul, and Dimebag also... A sad side note... the first time I saw Manowar live over 20 years ago was in the same club in Ohio where Dimebag was later shot at... At any rate

Here's some Manowar music on this....

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

Like others have noted, there's so much fantastic metal out there that goes with this game, it's hard to go wrong.  But I don't think I've seen anyone post Japanese girl metal yet.  So I give you this:

The band's name translates roughly as Fairy Empire.

For American bands, I've been listening to Seven Kingdoms.  Here is "Rats in the Walls:

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

wow. Looks like it was pretty quiet in here for 2-3 months until Spider of Leng showed up. ;)  Nice posts there, btw. A little background on Seven Kingdoms: they call me Papa Hoyt because I've hosted them here in Atlanta several times over the past 7-8 years. I was the first music promoter to invite them to step out of Florida. And now they're touring the world. \m/ *sniffle* Makes a Papa proud. :D

But yeah, I'm a bit behind in posting new inspiring music for you to check out. Here's just a couple of them I've found in recent weeks. These both hearken back to the very early seventies in the style of fuzzy guitars and Hammond organ; Black Sabbath meets Uriah Heep meets Hawkwind.  Check them out and let me know your thoughts...

Great stuff!  I just bought both these CDs off Amazon.  I'm a music grognard too; I still buy physical CDs.  In fact I have so much music that my I-pod classic maxed out at 160 GB and I just bought a new I-phone for the expressed purpose of being able to put my whole music library on it.

Speaking of Hawkwind, I had heard of them but never really listened to them much until earlier this year.  As a result, the huntsman PC in our character party is named Hawkwind.

Re: Inspiring Metal Music

And continuing the old school metal theme, a friend and I are going to see Judas Priest and Deep Purple in concert tomorrow night...
