|I Like Metal, I Guess...|
I've always had a strange relationship with metal music. Years in the
past I flat out couldn't get used to it, but after adjusting to harsh vocals
I've been able to get into some things. The thing is, I can appreciate a
lot of metal music, but most of it just doesn't do anything for me. Some
of my friends are obsessed with metal, and my closest friend loves
melodeath and their favorite band is Scar Symmetry, but I just can't
relate to them at all.
|1||Amia Venera Landscape|
The Long Procession
Easily my favorite metal(ish) album. The combination of soaring post-rock melodies
and massive, crushing and dissonant riffs works so well.
|2||Animals as Leaders|
Animals as Leaders
The wanky guitar stuff is kind of cool to me. Not a favorite, but fun to listen to.
|3||Between the Buried and Me|
Probably the first metal band I got into. They don't do much for me now, but I still
enjoy a listen here and there.
We Are the Romans
This somewhat draws me because of the dissonant riffs, which seems to be
something I look for.
I like djent, though I certainly don't think terribly high of the style. Haven't listened
to this much but I like it.
Yeah this is pretty cool.
Can't have a list like this without Isis. Someone would disown me if I didn't put
them on here.
Crack the Skye
Not among my favorites, but I first saw them live and thought they put on a really
good show. Oh yeah, I also saw Converge at that show.
The Eye of Every Storm
Children of Fire
This is pretty much the only metalcore I truly enjoy. A few of my friends listen to
almost all metalcore, and none of it does anything for me, save for these guys.
Pretty enjoyable. Their stuff gets boring after a while, but it's nice for walking
around campus or something.
The band that really got me into harsh vocals. I absolutely love Mike Armine's style.
|13||System of a Down|
System of a Down
I don't really admire these guys too much, but when a friend puts them on in the
car I can enjoy it.
I have a love/hate relationship with Tool. I can't deny they are talented and that I
enjoy some of their songs, but for some reason I just don't appreciate them overall.
Define the Great Line
Not entirely metal, but I do enjoy this album quite a bit. Although the awe of my
first listen has certainly worn off.
|Examining the minuscule portion of my pie chart. |
|well if your friend likes scar symmetry its time to show him some better music in general|
|Haha, my best friend at the current time is a girl. She's a sponge and just picked up on everything
her boyfriend likes. The funny thing is she likes melodic music, so I'm trying to introduce her to
melodic music that is actually good. |
|Proud of you. |
|Listen to some thrash|
|show her some demilich shell probably dig it|
|Show her Demilich if you dont want to be friends anymore.|
|Okay I'll keep that one in mind if I want to terminate our friendship. |
|Where is the thrash?|
|Don't really have any :(|
|If 10 is the only metalcore you truly enjoy then you must not like 1, 4, and 15 much.|
|Based on that list, try Atoma and the latest Hypno5e albums.|
|I'd consider AVL more post-metal, but fair enough on the others. |
|But I think you would enjoy Haste the Day, Last Chance To Reason, Engineer, and maybe Strapping Young Lad.|
|Alright I will look those up. |
|I also like music, I guess. |
|Dir En Grey - Uroboros|
|you should try some Mouth Of The Architect.|
and Cannibal Corpse! M/
|'She's a sponge and just picked up on everything her boyfriend likes.'|
Sounds like a great, interesting friendship, Patrick.
|Cannibal Corpse and Six feet Under M/|
|there's so much more to 2 than just "wanky guitar" oh man listen harder|
|Oh I know, it's more than just that. |
|None of this is metal. |
|"None of this is metal."|
|Careful, he's the authority on metal .|
|This is a stretch...but try Erra. Maybe you'll like them (metalcore).|
|don't try erra they suck|
get angel vivaldi
Circle of Contempt
Beheading of a King
I'd recommend more legit DM but you'd probably like at least a few mentioned.
|Good list man|
|Or.....try Erra anyway in case Scoot happens to be wrong. |
|No Scoot is right. Erra is wack.|
|-___- well I did say that it's a stretch...|
idk maybe somehow UnnamedOcean will somehow click with them.
|'Cannibal Corpse and Six feet Under'|
no.. just cannibal corpse..
