Vos te quejas de que no oigo tus recomendaciones, pero a la hora del te no oís las mias, jajaja


nigga whaaaaat!?

I heard Orphaned Land a long time ago. Their previos album (Mabool?) was really good and excelent. Honestly, im just a strange fellow for listening to new music: I could like a crappy band if it clicks, and can despise a praised one if it doesnt.

Less talking, more metal:


Lol nigga, i am talking about the funeral doom metal band that i told you about Ethir Anduin

And Aberrant Vascular



Is it just me or do people go too fucking far with genre labels nowadays?
Had to think about that when I read “Funeral Doom Metal” and suddenly shit like "Symphonic Death Metal/National Socialist Black Metal/Neo-Classical Metal and all the other garbage came to mind people make up to describe their music.

If I was God, I’d get rid of all those shit labels and would allow only two labels which are slow paced and fast paced metal.
Every band who would change the pace in their songs would be labelled assholes because they mess up my concept.


in the last thread, there were shitheads saying that new threads needed to be made in GD for each subgenre of metal.

also this thread sucks already. #truthhurts


@Geadom I started with Koloss then went back to ObZen, then Nothing. I’ll have to give Catch 33 a listen today.

Dat polyrhythm at the beginning. Also, what happened to all the old emoticons? I’m not feeling this change to the forums.




Get the Nothing 2006 re-recording / remaster. MILES ahead of the original.
And dont sleep on Catch 33, at first its gonna sound like a one trick pony… but oh boy what a fucking pony it is.


Considering that you hear metal in japanese i think that you wouldn’t mind if is on spanish, i think that you could end liking this band

Is based on The Pit and the Pendulum of Edgar Allan Poe (Actually the whole album is dedicated to Poe)

On the topic of Messhugah, i heard that their last EP wasn’t that good, i have not listened yet, so i can’t really say if tru or not, so maybe someone can give some highlights about it


All Mesuggah is solid. Obzen and Kolossus are more streamlined (not a bad thing, considering how well they do it), the latter having a more “natural” production, and Obzen having a more sterile and mechanical production.

However their other albums are nothing (pardon the pun) alike:

-Contradictions Collapse (1994) is just another thrash album cloned from Metallica, doesnt worth anyone time.

-DEI (95 or 96) is their best album and imo the best to start. Is a thrash metal album on the surface, but they started using the polyrythms that everyone already knows, and the palm muted “djent” riffs so copied nowadays.

-I cant stand Chaosphere (98 or 99). They try too hard to be so tech in this, but sounds so messy.

-Nothing has two versions: The 2002 one i dont rec to anyone, the audio sounds… broken, for lack of a better term. The 2006 version is REALLY innovative (altough tiresome at times), focusing more on grooves than speed.

-I and Catch 33 (03, 04) are really good, both are one track record but I is only one track and diverse, while Catch 33 is splitted in tracks but is basically the same groove all the way. The concept is really cool btw (paradoxes).

-Obzen and Kolossus are follow ups to DEI, as i said, with different productions and slighty different styles.

Overall a great band. Their sound is difficult to digest at first, but well worth it after that (specially if you´re a fan of prog/tech thrash or death metal… or just DIFFERENT albums altogether).


Thanks for the post bro, though you left out the album/EP that i was asking for, “Pitch Black” :rofl: (Not to mention that i already heard the previous albums :looney:)


Think i just only heard one song from that EP, IIRC, is just a follow up to what they did in Kolossus. I have heard some of their old EP too, they are cool and worth getting to see how the band evolved (even that one that has like 6 versions of Destroy Erase Improve, lol).

Also Meshuggah ALWAYS has great lyrics that are ON POINT with the music… a fucking difficult task considering their complicated polyrythms:

From “Stengah” (a song about drug addiction)



Do we have anyone that’s into Black Metal here or am I that guy? Anyway, why the fuck do people like Mayhem? Of course different strokes and all that but Mayhem’s “vocalist” seems like he’s parodying almost and I just don’t get why “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” is hailed as one of the best BM albums.


I like some black metal bands like Dimmu (i know, their last album is not BM), Agalloch, Akercocke, etc
I also hear like 2 or 3 unblack metal :rofl: that were not bad :looney:


You should try Cradle of Filth, they should right up your alley, buddy!


Depends on what BM period or style are we talking about. I like simple BM (Celtic Frost, Immortal), but the most KVLT ones just bore me.


I think the 90’s was better for raw black like Darkthrone, Immortal etc.

I like early Cradle, Midian and up though is where I can’t listen to a full album though early Hecate Enthroned are miles better. Dimmu get a lot of shit but I still like 'em.


I like some BM. Freezing Moon is pretty cool though it took me some time to get into it; I actually got into it by Vader’s cover of the song


Check out Japanese black metal band Sabbat


Haven’t listened to this song in a long time, still one of their best songs imo
