|Get 5 and 3. Have yet to hear 6 but Meshuggah is good.|
|maudlin of the Well- Bath.|
Kayo Dot- Choirs of the Eye.
Two albums everyone should have.
|In Mourning - Shrouded Divine|
Symbyosis - On the Wings of Phoenix
Augury - Concealed
Ted Maul - White Label
|I agree with J-Row. |
In Mourning- Shrouded Divine
Mercenary- Architect Of Lies
Dark Tranquillity- Damage Done or Projector
But how do you steer away from metal, thats mad?
|Anata-The Conductor's Departure|
Emperor-Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
The Red Chord-Fused Together in Revolving Doors
These albums don't really have anything to do with each other but they're all varied/interesting/not monotonous/whatever else you said.
|Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor|
Ulver - Bergtatt
Dissection - Storm of the Lights Bane
|Waking the Fallen by Avenged Sevenfold. A classic that never gets old.|
and f*** all you metalcore haters
|i don't like what i've heard from a7x at all and i've heard part of waking the fallen.|
|Go with Mercenary-The Hours That Remain instead|
Also try Strapping Young Lad-City it doesn't get old but it's very underrated
|2,4,5,6 rule! #3 is good, #1 I don't have:/|
|ops suppost to recomend, haha!|
2 - Psyopus
3 - The Absense
4 - get Colony from In Flames that album is the best!
5 - Decapitated or Decrepit Birth
btw, Waking the Fallen is awesome
|decapitated ftw. i recommend the negation or winds of creation.|
waking the fallen is sweet as, avoid the rest.
beneath the massacre are good too. also pre-colors between the buried and me
|get onset of putrefaction and epitaph by necrophagist. nobody can say they don't like necrophagist.|
|Listen to more In Flames, if you haven't already. I'm thinking Colony....|
|listen to isis|
