[QUOTE=DDDorian;1470733]a7stringkilla - unless you want this thread to turn into yet another flamefest that eventually gets locked, try not to be so heated, yeah? I see your point, and metal_head666 isn't exactly being diplomatic, but I don't want this to go the way of every deathcore topic ever.

i dont know, man. sometimes i read some of the stuff on here and i think it is a Flamefest! HA, get it!!!!!! please dont think im a dick or anything cause to be honest, i really was trying to help the guy. i would rather people not latch onto their favorite era so tightly that they become somewhat dilusional and attack everything current. sometimes you gotta be blunt with people to get it across though.

brutal =/= good
good =/= brutal

You can have one without the other, or you can have both. There are plenty of very very good brutal bands and there are many who are really not very good.

I was thinking of bringing them up but Mongrain's vocals can make them hard to tolerate for some. Same thing for Heafy's vocals for Capharnaum...

Bands: Solecism (progressive death) | Kisama (black metal/post-rock) | Kuroi (brutal death)
Guitars: Aria|Ibanez|Jackson|Peavey|Washburn
Rig: Guitar -> Fractal Axe-FX Ultra -> Carvin DCM150 -> Genz Benz G-Flex 2x12

Well, although I'm not contributing bands I have to say... what's wrong with metal being melodic? It's either you see melody as an abomination when it's related to metal or you're really just talking about metalcore bands. But what I'm saying is, is that no one in their right mind should find a fault with melody in heavy music. It's what makes it good and not just noise like non-metallers think.

agreed whole-heartedly! i feel like metal is metal. some is good. some isn't. some is melodic. some isn't. the need to dissect and classify only causes unnecessary drama.

now that i know your age i completely disagree. in this day and age you tend to have to sift through a lot of bullshit to find the good shit. it seems to me that either you have completely different tastes from me... OR you're lazy...

well then just listen to the new stuff through blown speakers and there you go, just like the old shit! dude, youre too young to be saying shit like this. take a step back, go play some sports, lift some weights, mingle with people who dont give a shit about metal for a while. and yeah this is your era, storm through it, dont walk backward staring at the past. its gone!

The point of this thread is to introduce each other to bands that are atonal and/or groove-oriented. It's not about bashing a certain genre, or defending a genre that's not even under attack. So let's put aside the squabbling and get back to business...

In case my last recommendation got overlooked, y'all should check out my friends' band Johnny Cage is a Fake (RIP ). Some atonal riffage, off-the-beaten-path vibes, and some slam-worthy shit too. They formed a new band called Tiger Flowers.

Positive rep for positive contributors!

I appreciate classical like Wagner and I hate pop/rap. Does this mean I have to get with the times? No, I recognize good music when I hear it.

thats the thing, youre still in the hardcore metal mind state. you like classical and hate rap. some rappers are really good with phrasing and pop is great to listen to, especially if youre writing songs. trust me when i tell you there are no better songwriters than pop and country writers. stop thinking so musically and just listen to and enjoy music for a while. you might be somewhat refreshed when you start writing again.

Besides the obvious (Deeds of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Malevolent Creation, Immolation, Decapitated, Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Hate Eternal, Origin, Skinless, etc... I could go on) a few you'd almost certainly like, some you've probably heard of:


Kronos (CHECK THEM OUT NAO if you like your brutal death metal super catchy/groovy)
Defiled (very neat, very atonal!)
Intestine Baalism (ok, it's melodic at times but listen to it and you'll see why it doesn't ....ing matter)
Genna Apo Kolo (also super groovy)
Benighted (very groovy but a little more experimental/tech)
Ulcerate (super Gorguts-esque tech)
Gorgasm (RIP somewhat standard but lots of fun brutal death)
Infected Malignity (now a sort of metalcore-ish band, but their first album The Malignity Born From Despair is straight up high quality Suffo worship )
Infernal Revulsion (great brutal death/slam)
Soreption (tech stuff, haven't listened to much but it's pretty cool)
Inhuman Devotion (very techy brutal slam death... cool stuff)
Woundeep (somewhat Origin-esque... very fast brutal death)
Disconformity (SLAM! ....ing catchy)
Terminally Your Aborted Ghost
Swarrrm (super weird grindcore/death metal... their vocalist is ....ing insane)
Visceral Bleeding (very spastic tech-death, gets a little repetitive/boring at times though)
Yattering (brutal tech death, somewhat experimental)
Atheritic
Hate Plow
Sinners Bleed
Hyonblud
Internecine
Jasad
Karnak
Animals Killing People
Torso....
Mithras

so many more but I'll leave it at that... sorry I stopped typing descriptions but it was getting a little tiresome


Also... feel free to check out my brutal death metal project Kuroi:

One of the best posts in the General forum in a long time. Lots of little-known bands in here, and a few I've not checked out myself. Cheers!

Agreed. I made a topic on it a few weeks back, this band is so good it hurts.

I made a few recommendations in the "brutal death metal" thread, but I'll slap a few in here too:

Wormed (Spanish brutal-as-.... death metal. Spastic yet lots of groove. myspace.com/wormed)
Degrade (slam-style brutal death. Production leaves a bit to be desired, but still jammin')
Bodies in the Gears of the Apparatus (spastic grind stuff with a little crust influence at times. They called it quits too early IMO)
Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Sky (formed out of BITGOTA. Similar death/grind feel but with better production and more straightforward DM influence)
Internal Suffering (sick DM from Columbia, recently moved to the US)

Toad metal!

Regain the Heart Condemned get their atonal grind on. I remember a friend of mine playing an older recording of theirs for me, and I nearly fell off the chair it was so goddamn heavy. Their new album seems a step down, but still pretty good.

Discordance Axis were interesting. A friend of mine gave me a CD of theirs a while back--it had something like 50 songs on it. Some were maybe 12 seconds. LOL but .

The only truly melodic metal band I like is Evergrey (the older stuff, nothing post Inner Circle). Most melodic metal bands sound cheesy to me - although my favorite bands have a nice balance of heavy and melodic, like Opeth, Cynic, and Nevermore. As far as power metal goes the only band I really like is Demons & Wizards. I don't like any of the "melodeath" bands like In Flames or Mercenary.

It'd be FAR better if you could make out what the .... they're playing. I actually HATE when talented bands use so much distortion that it's nearly impossible to discern anything. I wanna hear the dissonance, not the fizz so much.
