Heavy metal music - album suggestions

114 posts in this topic

I have recently been starting to get back into a bit of metal, mostly thrash, and was wondering if anyone has any favs they think are must-hears.

 

I have been mostly getting into Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax a bit, but have only really heard a few bits and pieces from each. I really like Rust in Peace from Megadeth but found Countdown to Extinction a bit poppy like Metallica. The two albums before Rust in Peace are pretty good too. Oh and I like Slayers Reign in Blood but havent had much of a chance to listen to their others yet.

 

I have also been checking out other bands like Pantera, Sepultura, Biohazard etc, but havent been digging that as much. Have to listen to them a bit more to see if they grow on me.

 

I have always been into Black Sabbath but would describe them more as bluesy hard rock. Iron Maiden are ok, they have some good songs and some bad ones.

 

So, anyone like this sort of sound, and has any kick arse shit to recommend?

I would recommend Danzig (first 4 albums anyway), but its probably not heavy enough for you. :unsure:

I wouldn't say I'm a metalhead because I prefer my music to still be melodic but I do like it a bit harder.

Stuff I like thats come out somewhat recently: Mudvayne, System of a Down, Disturbed, A Perfect Circle.

Older but still good: Rage Against the Machine, Tool, Rammstein

Internet radio thingy that recommends bands similar to the ones u choose to listen to

Yeah my mp3 program connects to a similar website called last.fm that has that feature too.

 

 

and metallica, poppy!

Yeah I think I have the wrong impression due to only really hearing their more recent albums, and chart released singles etc. Will definitly be checking out Master of Puppets at least.

Wish I could be of assistance, but I'm more a fan of Deth Kuntry.

and try bullet for my valentine, they're good although more mainstream. very catchy stuff, and they're welsh i think.

 

interviewer: "So did Metallica really sell out?"

kirk hammett: "Yeah! We've sold out every arena in the last 10 years"

Yeh St. Anger was pretty lame compared to their other stuff. They've got a new album coming out soonish, supposed to be more 'old-skool' metallica. Check out the black album too

OH my, I saw Dir En Grey at Rock im Park. The singer was very weird to say the least, I think I saw bits of his lung fly out and he bust open his lip on the microphone (on purpose) and smeared himself in blood.

Good afternoon entertainment at a festival
