My Current Metal Playlist

what's in my iPod right now. i'd appreciate some recs along the same lines. Ya know. Or not. Whatever.
1 Afgrund
Svarta Dagar

Pretty solid Swedish grind similar to Nasum and Rotten Sound
Alice in Hell

Classic technical speed metal. Not my favorite Annihilator but still great.
3Blind Guardian
Somewhere Far Beyond

Can't decide if I did this one or not. More speed metal than power metal and I dig
Hansi's voice, but it doesn't get stuck in your head like 'Imaginations...'
4Circle II Circle
Burden of Truth

Disappointing, and I heard it was their best album. I'd rather listen to bottom shelf
Savatage than this...
5Deathspell Omega
Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum

Extremely imaginative and experiemental black metal. I dig it. Blends cult black
metal, grind, ambient, a lot of genre confusion going on to great effect.
6Defeated Sanity
Chapters of Repugnance

Impressive technical death metal, especially the bass-lines and drumming. Riffs are
too metalcore sometimes. Great example of something good that would be great
with a big fat guitar solo wailing through the middle of it.
Emanation from Below

Overall I think I prefer their second album, but this one has a load of creative ideas
and the songwriting is better on this one.
8Edge of Sanity

needs no explanation.
Carving Out the Eyes of God

My first exposure to this band. This album gives me blue balls. Tons of potential
but you'll wait a long, long time if you think it's every going to finally deliver.

Solid early death n' roll.
In The Embrace of Evil

thanks for the rec.
Damned in Black

Bridges the gap nicely between their grittier early sound and their epic later sound.
a little too polished on the production, but solid. It's Immortal.
To Die For

Not a big hardcore fan, but I dig these guys for the dark vibe and the thrashy solos.
14Kingdom of Sorrow
Kingdom of Sorrow

Weird blend of hardcore and doom/thrash. This band could develop into something
good if they focus more on writing songs than on sounding like the reject pile from
Down's first album. Kirt Weindstein and Jamey Jasta. I won't hold that against
them too much though.
Flag of Hate

needs no explanation.
16 Mastodon

Way better than their first record. It took me a decade to give them a second try
after sitting through that stroke fest.

Not my fav Moonsorrow. This album is a little too mellow and undirected. Love this
band, though.
Unsilent Death

Awesome grind/metalcore hybrid. Album feels a little undercooked, but I dig the
19Novembers Doom
The Novella Reservoir

One of the few doom/death bands I can stand. First half of this album is amazing.
Second half is the reason I don't get into doom/death very much.
Chaos of Forms

Technical thrash on the verge of being death metal. Awesome proggy lead work.
It works a lot better than it sounds like it would.

needs no explanation.
Beyond the Permafrost

fun album that remingds me of everything that went wrong with melodic death
metal. not enough here to justify the length. thinks a little melody can make up for
bad songwriting, which is pretty much the definition of shitty pop music.
Effigy of the Forgotten

24 While Heaven Wept
Vast Oceans Lacrymose

Blends prog, power metal, doom and Floyd. I dig it.
25Anaal Nathrakh
In the Constellation of the Black Widow

Possibly my favorite black metal band ... not their best album, though ...

I can think of a billion reasons why I should love the shit out of this, but it still
leaves me feeling a little dissatisfied, like they took me right to the edge but
couldn't push me over.
27Insect Warfare
World Extermination

grindy goodness.
