Like Terra Tenebrosa, to name but one not so random awesome band..?

In the case of Gojira, the death metal roots are pretty clear - especially on their earlier work. You wouldn't mistake what they do now for any other genre if Joe still growled. And if you look at their single biggest influence, things don't get much more death metal than Morbid Angel was. Gojira just progressed pretty fast to a point where they don't simply fit into the death metal genre. So I suppose that could make them 'progressive post death'..? Or if you take the subject matter into consideration, extreme eco metal? Green-core..? Technical tribal t(h)rash?! smily_headphones1.gif

 

They're definitely progressive-ish, but I can't think of any album of theirs that sounds especially death-y, not even going back to The Link. They're a highly Meshuggah-influenced band, like they're about as Meshuggah as it gets without the goofy polyrhythms (and that's a good thing, IMO). I don't hear ANY Morbid Angel in their sound.

 

I don't see what's wrong with analyzing sounds, personally. It helps figure out what we like about the music we like. If you just go "omg itz all metuhl" then you find yourself going "okay well what kind of sound do you like in your metal?" and there's no way to really explain. You can name BANDS, but that's all. Classification in music, like chemistry, helps us categorize. Nothing wrong with that!

 

As for Terra Tenebrosa (funny you brought them up... ;) ) they're a post-metal band. There's some doomy/sludge in there and a few oddities, but I feel pretty confident in calling them post metal and being done with it.

I've been listening to Fear Factory's new album Genexus on a daily basis. Still haven't memorized it yet, but it's growing on me. Who else here is a Fear Factory fan, besides @Redcarmoose?

Nothing per se.

I know. Don't like her. Not one bit. Ruins the whole show for me.

Yes, I listen to it everyday. It seems hard to get sick of? An enexpected joy this year?

>>> oh come on, you don't hear the death metal influence in The Link..? 

 

 

>>> I'm starting to think you wouldn't recognise death metal if it hammer smashed your face... ;)

 

>>> And how about Terra Incognita?

 

 

>>> 'Posessed' maybe..? 

 

 

They're a highly Meshuggah-influenced band, like they're about as Meshuggah as it gets without the goofy polyrhythms (and that's a good thing, IMO). I don't hear ANY Morbid Angel in their sound.

 

>>> Really? You hear NO Morbid Angel, at all..?

 

>>> How about that riff at 1:47 in the song I posted? Their music is full of riffs like that... that is no Meshuggah.

 

>>> Just to be sure we're talking about the same Morbid Angel:

>>> Oh yeah, definitely, analyzing music is fun. Nothing wrong with that. And I agree that classification can help to form an image of a band's sound, if you're reading about a band you don't know or if you're describing a band to a friend or something. My point was about the apparent need to put everything into a specific corner or mould or subgenre or whatever, as if that is what defines a band - any band - or their sound. 

 

As for Terra Tenebrosa (funny you brought them up... ;) ) they're a post-metal band. There's some doomy/sludge in there and a few oddities, but I feel pretty confident in calling them post metal and being done with it. 

 

>>> If Terra Tenebrosa is post metal, I should listen to more post metal. But it's probably not that simple, right?

Oh, I must have forgotten you saw that one. (Did you see all the episodes? It's my third favorite anime now.)

Dropped it.
No, I will not give it a second chance.
 


Not 100% Metal but I love love love this album!

Personally, I would not have shed a tear if Fear Factory had called it quits after Demanufacture. ph34r.gif


EDIT: hehe... I suppose that every album since Demanufacture has been OBSOLETE. Sorry, couldn't resist... biggrin.gif

Really?

 Young and In the Way recently played the Lexington Avenue Brewery in Asheville, NC, for presumably the last time. The band played the back room at the venue and during their performance they sprayed animal blood all over the crowd. This was an act the venue was none too pleased with. The damage was so severe the venue had to temporarily shut down.

 

Unless you mean the music itself doesn't have balls now, which is weird when you link to a pretty sedate bluesy song...
