Albums, that is. While I'm still working on my (no doubt) future maligned mainstream list, here are some albums that don't seem to get the love they need around here.
French screamo that has track names from hell.
BM influenced grindcore (also French, I believe). I've been whoring these guys out since last year, and a few users seem to have caught on.
How Hate is hard To Define
Really chaotic metalcore. Heard these guys through a Throatruiner Records sampler (same with Nesseria).
All American Death Cult
Styles reviewed these guys a while back and I'm sorry I took so long to get around to listening. It's more Industrial metal than Nu, somewhat along the same lines as Dry Kill Logic's last album.
Freaking spastic music from three brothers (think ska meets grind). One of the more versatile vocalists around.
Speaking of insane vocalists...This guy is a beast, if not for his execution, then simply for his range.
|7||Twelve Foot Ninja|
Another band I try to whore out as much as possible. This album really channels its inner Faith No More.
|8||Shaolin Death Squad|
And while we're on the topic of sword-wielding Asians...well, here are some white guys that play experimental metal and wear masks.
Given to Destroyers
Somewhat similar to the above, but with much less experimental material to be found. Try the song "Tongues" and decide from there.
|10||40 Below Summer|
The Mourning After
Nu-metal that tries to steer away from the genre's cliches, and succeeds for the most part.
Screams and Whispers
Really awesome progressive thrash.
|13||Bullets and Octane|
In the Mouth of the Young
Sweet punk-influenced hard rock with almost a hint of Americana thrown in here and there.
|14||Eleventh He Reaches London|
Hollow Be My Name
Post-hardcoreish screamoish awesomeness that you should go get right now. Do it.
Downward is Heavenward
Really good alt rock, thanks to redsky for this one.
Des Deux l'une Est l'autre
Another awesome French band, this one a more progressive metal band. Words don't do them justice.
A very solid alternative metal release. Thank you to bloc for one of many recs of great bands.
Jazz metal with influences from everywhere. They go from covering Smoke on the Water, to spastically (is that even a word?) shouting German, to Death metal segments. Not something that should be passed up.
digital hardcore of cors
To Lose a Name
Another bloc rec, and like the last one this is really good alt metal.
|21||Woe of Tyrants|
Kingdom of Might
Melodic dm with a beast of a vocalist.
More awesome melo death. This was previous band of the guitarist/singer for Extol.
|Major props to Vooligan for a lot of the Aussie bands on here, e.g., 1, 9, and 14|
|where I don't like bugs|
|celeste is so good love that crushing sound they got.|
|yeah I love celeste, though I still need to listen to their earlier stuff|
check out numero dos too then
|i think i have it in my library with no plays, i'll give it a spin. celeste sounds the same all the time pretty much, but morte(s) nee(s) has the cleanest production/best art so you're all set.|
|except that was way off-base|
|anacrusis believer fuckin m/|
|7,8,9 all rule hard|
|Only album I know on this is 21 and I've only heard like one song from it.|
|This list needs CHON - Demo 2008|
|I feel I must continue to not love these as much as you feel I should, I'm sorry my friend.|
Also, their albums are free, which is awesome.
|have heard none of these|
|Styles gonna luv u for 19. That and Anacruisis are cool, really need to check out 1.|
|"I feel I must continue to not love these as much as you feel I should, I'm sorry my friend."|
I would definitely listen to the ones you haven't heard, but then again I love all these so I'm a tad biased.
"anacrusis believer fuckin m/"
"have heard none of these"
Get on it! At least 1, 14, and 16
"Styles gonna luv u for 19. That and Anacruisis are cool, really need to check out 1."
If you like Anacrusis, then you should like Believer. And if you like one, you should check out Nesseria.
|listening to amaranthe m/|
|Sounds like a personal problem to me.|
|Woe of Tyrants is awesome!|
|CHON NEEDS RECOGNITION|
|I'll listen to it if you listen to one of these you haven't heard.|
|it's a deal.|
|I shall listen to 18. sounds very interesting|
|Only heard 1 and 2 but they're both really good..|
|Awesome, as soon as I have the capability to, I shall listen to Chon.|
|you will not be dissapointed|
|Haha, I remember listening to 17 and 20 long ago and was like, "I hate this, but Emim will like this."|
|It's the production, isn't it?|
|Kind of, I think it was the fact that the guitarists were using Marshall amps and I know you like that so...|
