No offense, but all of the metal posted here sounds like someone puking while an American V8 from a drag racer is revved to the max.

Here is something you can actually listen to, I love it cause it was used in Doom 2, but this sounds so much better than the MIDI files :cool:

I must say, that extreme metal is a bit of an acquired taste and you can get bored of it quite quickly. My first foray into the extreme side of metal was about 9-10 years ago. I thrived on Black and Death metal (and everything in between), but over the years I started becoming bored with it. My tastes turned towards more melodic and progressive metal. In my opinion, it takes more skill and talent to write a good melodic song with some progressive touches than it does to write an extreme song. It's also much easier to growl / screech / yell and make it sound GOOD than it is to have a good (proper) singing voice...

Many Death- and Black Metal bands tend to rehash the same riffs over and over again, so it really DOES start sounding the same after a while. But, like my earlier extreme days, that's what I wanted. If you liked Death Metal, you could pretty much pick up any album from any Death Metal band and be sure to enjoy it... I do enjoy the odd Progressive Death / Black album though (like In Vain - awesome band!). Keeps things interesting. :)

Thats how some of us like it :p Personally I listen for the drums, and the rhythms created between the guitars and drums. The slight changes in the riff or drum line at those speeds are what excites me! The vocals are something that you have to accept when you delve into subgenre upon subgenre in Metal (porngrind/goregrind gets a bit extreme). My opinion is that vocals in metal are an instrument and are used to the same effect/intensity as the drums and guitars.

I was a huge fan of Pantera a few years back but my tastes have grown to be very specific since. Pantera no longer have the energy & speed I look for in Metal, as do most of the bands I listened to years ago. Having said that though, I still get a kick out of the old school death metal sound (prominent though '89-'94) which contain slow heavy riffs and double bass, and blast beats here are few and far between.

Here are the Dutch band, Sinister. Similar to early Cannibal Corpse if you enjoy that sound.

I suppose you can call me a metal noob then. The way I like my music is simple and boolean : can I hear the lyrics. So that rules out most metal, classical, opera, rap and trance ;)

I also appreciate a good rhythm setup in any band. The drums, rhythm guitar and bass should almost form an indistinguishable instrument. You get many bands in the prog / power sub-genres who have excellent rhythm setups. Prog specifically provides very interesting song writing whereby some bands incorporate extreme musicianship with very progressive writing, but still keeping it melodic with clean vocals.

Have you listen at all to Opeth? You might enjoy them. George 'Corpsegrinder' Fisher, the vocalist from Cannibal Corpse, is arguably the best in the business at annunciation while doing the screams and growls. You can hear the lyrics very well, although the stuff he sings about isn't something you'd want to hear much of :)

Last cannibal corpse I checked out had such lovely tunes as "I cum blood" and what not. No thanks, I'll give it a skip, I guess metal is not for me although I like some of the older stuff from the early 90's.

Yeah they haven't changed much either. The lyrical content is not the best :eek: Have you checked out Death?
