I like gore/grind related metal best, Lord Gore's probably my favourite metal band but I like modern stuff like Cattle Decapitation too.

Hell yeah. Goregrind/Porngrind is probably right behind Brutal Death Metal when it comes to my favorite metal genres. Bands like Rompeprop, Mortician, Abominable Putridity, and Gonorrhea [kitty] are so sick.

I'm going to milk Goon's teats

After looking at all the songs posted in this thread, i suggest one song:
Iced Earth - Jack

Iced Earth is alright. I liked them more a while ago and their first two albums are still good fun to listen to.

I have to be honest, i don't think his voice is too brilliant either. But people already bash me for not liking Halfords voice, so no need to bash some more hehe.

I don't like Halford's voice either, or Priest at all for that matter. Way too much leather and too many studs.

Anyone into djent here? For the unenlightened, djent is a "genre" where the bands focus on double-octave, palm-muted power chords that make - wait for it - a "djent" sound. The riffing is usually done on seven-string or eight-string guitars and features frequent rhythmic displacement and tempo shifts.

Examples:

Tesseract rule. I saw them live 2 years ago, and it was wicked. My mate knows the whole band, but he moved away before they played locally, so i didn't get a chance to meet them.

I'm currently trying to check out Ihsahn due to the recommendation on the previous page, and give a proper listen to Chthonic - Mirror of Retribution.

Also, I'm very looking forward to Soilworks new stuff that should be coming out this year.

Wow I *really* liked those first two!

But yea, the main thing that kills ANY sort of metal is the voice. I'm not into screaming *at all* Manson was like the one exception. And most guys just like wail into the mic.

Yeah, Periphery rules, but I wouldn't class them as anything other than prog metal.

i agree with saru...sometimes the singing style (not so much the lyrics, but how they are presented) ruins the song. like, i dont like pig squeal metal and the likes of singing that i cant understand (cannibal corpse comes to mind). i like to listen to metal that i can understand what they are saying. i'm more of a metalcore guy. would Maiden be classified as metal? i was thinking hairmetal, correct?

edit: i did have a very brief shade empire phase (symphonic metal). still like the symphonic genre, but not so much the emo lyrics

Well grindcore is pretty niche and I don't expect people to like it. I hated it at first but it's now one of my favourite genres. I mostly posted it here for the people that do enjoy the genre but it's fine that you don't like it. That band in particular is pretty extreme (their debut "album" is just 11 minutes long) though. It's not all like that.

Maiden is a NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) band - largely a precursor to power metal and melodic death metal. If you like them, you should give Pretty Maids and maybe Manilla Road's Crystal Logic album a listen.

Apparently Maiden is another band with a new release this year, too.

symphony X's website says that theyre practically done with their new album. dont know how accurate that is because there are no year stamps, only days and months.

and who here listened to dragonforce before GH3? i, for one, did. saw one of their valley of the damned songs on iO tunes and got both that album and inhuman rampage.

I think I heard something off Inhuman Rampage a while before GH3 came out. Was around the same time I started hearing Metallica and Dream Theater :lol:

@Saru If you hate growls, screams, rasps etc. (which I did to start off with) there is plenty of metal with clean vocals. Power, classic, folk, even some black metal has clean vocals (Alcest count kinda as metal ^^).
Also I love Primordial, and yes, Maiden's album The Final Frontier is coming out soon, the single El Dorado is free for download on their website. And... Kamelot's 'The Great Pandemonium' music video trailer should be coming out soon! =D I am so psyched about their new album...

NGE grindcore. Hell f***in' yeah.

Ooh checked out some more Gridlink on yt and they're actually pretty good. Gotta be in the mood for it though.

I personally cannot stand most metal vocalists that actually sing, wailing vocals with cheesy lyrics isn't my thing. Not to mention most power/folk/whatever riffs are pretty boring and cheesy too. They may have an amazing voice and range but I honestly don't care, still sounds annoying to me (the guy from Manilla Road is a nice example). Would much rather have a singer with a nice scream/grunt so it doesn't detract from the rest of the music and might even sound pretty cool.
Favourite genres would be death/brutal death/tech death/black/post/sludge metal and combinations between those, I've kind of grown out of it now though but still like it once in a while. Gorguts/Decapitated is awesome when you're in a bad mood. Same would go for Gridlink :P

You're clearly not hearing the right bands then. ;) There are plenty of clean metal vocalists who can actually sing, and not about dragons as well. And who cares if some of the riffs are simple, if it sounds good and if the lyrics actually mean something, I'll listen to it.

I could say the same thing about bands with vocalists who grunt/scream, why don't you listen to those? Easy, you don't like them (just generalizing here, no idea what you actually listen to). Even though they are pretty good bands.
Singing vocalists just aren't my thing, I have primordial and don't even dislike the music but the singer totally turns me off. He is good if you like that kind of singing but if you dislike it it just ruins the music as a whole. Did listen to gamma ray and iron maiden for a while too but then moved on to in my opinion better music. Tried kamelot and couldn't delete it fast enough, despite everyone loving the vocalist I found him pretty horrible. And I honestly don't care for meaning in music, I want interesting riffs, vocalists that don't sound like they're trying too hard, and no cheesy stuff.

if it sounds good

Yes I agree. Problem with cheesy riffs is that to me it sounds good once or twice and then it turns really boring and predictable. Cheesy vocals don't even sound good the first listen :P

vocalists who can actually sing

I think I just really dislike people 'actually singing' in metal, they all sound like they're trying too hard and wail too much, really turns me off.

Two examples of singing in 'metal' I don't mind:

Isis and Cult of Luna are great, it's a pity Isis split up really, although it was probably the best time for them to split up. And I suppose if clean vocals aren't your thing, they aren't your thing, but they're not all cheesy and waily (I'm looking at you LaBrie) and neither are the riffs imo. Take a look at a band called Winds (avant-garde) maybe, the vocalist doesn't try too hard at all and he definitely isn't whiney.

Hmm he's less bad than most other vocalists but he still holds too many notes for too long, you really don't have to draw out every word in a sentence to sing. Plus I don't think singing should be so high in the mix, why can't the riffs or the overall sounds be the focus?
But I digress.

Some more bearable vocals (mostly because they fit the music pretty well):


More good stuff:
awesome songwriting.

(this part has the solo)
pretty much perfect death metal.
black metal with a nice post-rock influenced side, best when you listen to the full album.
