Aeon of Horus are pretty similar (and Australian!)
try listenin to bands like...
Born of Osiris
Burning the Masses
Conducting from the grave
Hiroshima Will Burn
Protest the Hero
The Human Abstract
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT
this =/= necrophagist
Gorguts could be worth a look too, although they aren't quite as technical in places.
they are 3 very decent bands, you should listen to them sometime
I'm a big fan. If you like this, you'll probably like Revocation.
I haven't decided if I like these guys or not. Sometimes it seems like they add widdly stuff just to add it.
Spawn Of Possession
Origin (not really like Necrophagist, but still a good band.)
Visceral Bleeding (very like SOP)
Death (Suicmez really took influence from this band and Necrophagist covered Crystal Mountain.)
I like Protest The Hero, they're like Symphony X mixed with weird singing. an acquired taste, but for anyone looking for something a bit different, check out their most recent album Fortress. I think it's fucking cool, and I am very, very picky.
I would say the faceless sounds similar to them
Nile too, only less melodic.
maybe Veil of Maya? After the Burial?
I don't see the correlation between Nile and Necrophagist, I think they are completely different
I see even less a correlation between The Faceless and Necrophagist, yet everyone some people always say they sound similar.
if you listened to the new Faceless album you'd see the correlation
Yeah, I must say most of the light -core elements of Akeldama are few and far between on Planetary Duality [of which I'm listening to the two part title track currently.] It's kind of hard to say bands that sound like them because I personally don't see many other marriages of neo-classical esque shredding and death metal riffage.
However I would side with those who recommend The Faceless bearing in mind Planetary Duality. As well as some of the others mentioned like Obscura, Gorod, Decrepit Birth and Decapitated. I think out of all of them your best bet is either Obscura or Decrepit Birth. They both have a very heavy sound while still carrying beautiful leads and solos. What's insane is I believe that Decrepit Birth tunes to standard and still has that really crushing/brutal tone. Observe:
Sorry i didnt check which bands have already been listed so you're going to have to suffer
Spawn of Possesion (sp?)
The Faceless (make sure you get there new album not the old one)
Obscura (I think some of necro's members are in this?)
I've bolded all the bands i think you'll like most.
Yeah, I completely agree. I absolutely love Protest the Hero. They sound absolutely nothing even remotely close to Necrophagist, so I'm not sure why that dude brought them up, but anyhow, fantastic band!
They tune to D standard. I've actually been learning The Living Doorway. Fun to play and sounds awesome too. They're in the studio now and it's supposed to been even more crushing.
Good to see Psycroptic getting some love
