      I dislike straight up djent but I think there are useful elements that can be taken from it. Ex: https://sithuayemusic.bandcamp.com/track/pulse-part-i-feat-plini   The problem with the band you posted is that there's only one melodic line. No layers, just the single synchronized riff with...

    This is an interesting discussion to follow. In my experience, every metal listener that I know is one is also one of the calmest people I know.     Quote:   How do you distinguish the "fake" angry metal from the real stuff?

      You might be mixing up experiencing emotions and perceiving emotions. I mean, I wouldn't want to ever actually feel extremely angry. Listening to a song with a clear mind allows you to better perceive the emotions it's portraying, like any nuance in the music. It sound like you and KritiKal...

      I was really into post metal for about a year before getting burned out. I still visit favorites occasionally, but a lot of these albums seem to lack substance with repeated listens.

      I forgot that was coming out last week. The teaser track got me really excited when I heard it a month ago.

      I remember hearing a track from that album when it came out and not liking it, but this is way better. I'll have to give the whole thing a try, thanks.

      Power metal favorites:     Seventh Wonder   Ancient Bards - A New Dawn Ending   I enjoyed Epica's latest album too (which was a first) but I'm sure you've heard of them.

      Was it their intention to make an album that takes longer to pronounce than to listen to? I haven't seen a naming convention like that since 55gore.

    My usual listening habit is to shuffle my entire library until a I hear a song that sounds good at that moment, and then I go on to listen to that entire album. Sometimes I don't know what I want to hear until I hear it. "Shuffling" isn't inherently bad, IMO.   I've always looked at music in...

      Aside from concept albums and albums with songs that are closely tied together, I can't honestly say that there's a point to the album format. Of course I like it because it's what I'm used to and all that, but without the limitations of physical media it makes more sense to release material...

      Yeah, I felt the same way about their last 2. This sounds really promising! Gonna miss Mikko, though.

      Heard it today. My only complaint is that a lot of the time when vocals are present, the music becomes simpler and more "typical metal" to accommodate. But man, when the vocals drop out and the extra instrumentation kicks back in, it's just beautiful. That perfect surreal mix of light and...

    On the topic of hardcore-ish metal, I recently heard Choidos' latest album and liked it. I'm not normally a fan of the stuff but it was catchy enough to make up for that.     Amaranthe's album this year was disappointing. A couple good songs but for the most part The Nexus was a lot better.

      Pale Communion may have fallen short in a lot of areas, but that's not one of them IMO. There were some similarities to Heritage but for the most part they sounded more like new Cynic than old Opeth.

      The drumming on Pale Communion is spectacular. Stood out many times during my listen, and I don't usually pay attention to drumming as much as I should. I agree with you that the drums on GR are a lot better than Watershed, but GR has more of a natural prog sound blended with metal so it...

      They know what they're doing, and it shouldn't come as any surprise that most people will take a free download when offered. When an artist puts an album on Bandcamp they're either more interested in spreading the word about their music and getting more recognition, or they just think making...

      Allegaeon, In Mourning, Bloodbath (mostly Nightmares), Be'lakor, a few Edge of Sanity albums, and I'll add Swallow the Sun because they're halfway there.       I wouldn't have considered Hypno5e metalcore, but yeah, both of those bands are great.

    Apparently Max Phelps from Cynic lives very close to me and teaches guitar at a music store I go to regularly. Lots of metal bands are from around here too, I've noticed.
