|Need recs for these albums|
Any suggestions of some things I may not have heard or given a proper chance?rI'm always trying to discover new music, but it's getting harder and harder as I'm draining the well. But I know there's still some gems out there I haven't heard.
Master of Puppets
Just Because it had to go on here, and I'm 28 so I grew up on old school metal.
|2||At the Gates|
Slaughter of the Soul
I never liked their other stuff, but this album is a masterpiece. Terminal Spirit Disease was alright before, but everything before was too noisy and the prodouction was too lo-fi for my taste.
|3|| ||We Came as Romans|
Understanding What We've Grown to Be
Really digging these guys, 2nd album better than the first.
|4||Bullet for My Valentine|
All 3 of their albums are great
|5||As I Lay Dying|
Shadows Are Security
Love all their stuff, and their screaming doesn't fall into senseless noise, it's got a great rhythm and meter
Live After Death
The Here and Now
I don't like anything else they put out, but this album is awesome in my opinion.
My favorite of newer metal bands, mainly because their riffs are in the same line of what I like to write and hear. They were influenced by my same big four: Metallica, Maiden, Megadeth, and Pantera.
As Daylight Dies
Great stuff, great vocals
Killing With a Smile
Another band whose screaming doesn't fall into senseless noise and has a great rhythm and meter.
I just got into these guys, mainly cause of this album. I could never get into their older stuff... it was just too much noisy thrash, whereas this is more melodic and has more substance.
|12||Children of Bodom|
Follow the Reaper
I remember the first time hearing this album... there was something magical about it, much like the first time I had heard Iron Maiden growing up. Great guitar melodies, and I knew each new track would have more. Before this band, I did not like anything that was only screaming. This opened the doors to death metal and metalcore for me.
|13||All that Remains|
For We are Many
This was a great album. One thing odd though is that on The Fall of Ideals, Phil's clean vocals sounded much better than everything after it... everything after it sounded more garagey with worse vocal production. I actually prefer his cleans on The Fall of Ideals.
Awesome melodic death album, even though it's completely devoid of cleans.
|15||The Word Alive|
Contrary to a lot of the reviews I see on here, I actually thought this album had some really good stuff on it. I didn't care for Deceiver as much, so this album ended up exceeding my expectations.
