Separate names with a comma.
I'm on my second track and this is blowing my mind!
The new WoD song is quite good...lots of anticipation for the new release on my end, especially because of the new members in the lineup (Vlad from Drudkh on drums!)
Really, I find Krallice to be the most accessible form of Black Metal. I have a real difficult time getting into Black and Years Past Matter to me is the most accessible Black metal album I have heard. However, you could argue that Krallice is not truly Black..
I find krallice pretentious. Not bad or anything like that, but personally I find them dense and complex for the sake of dense and complex. Even deaf haven seems more sincere to me LOL
I'm probably in the minority there but I don't spin either krallice that I have very often
new to this field these days, any recommendation for me?
New like "completely new" or more like "I'm already listening to one or two bands"-new?
Black Metal or Metal as a whole?
I'm not very versed when it comes to BM, but if it's Metal in general I've got some suggestions for you:
I'd recommend Clayman by In Flames, it's my all time favourite album.
Stabbing the Drama by Soilwork is another good album, both of these are good representatives of Swedish Melodeath.
Rammstein is a must, any album of theirs will do, I guess. If I had to recommend one I think it'd be Reise Reise.
Metallica's Black Album is another must, even though I really can't stand the way it sounds. The music is very good though.
Other bands I like a lot are Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold, and I recommend you give them a listen too.
Hope this helps!
Also, just disregard this if you were asking about BM and already know what you like when it comed to other sub genres
Perhaps, but that seems to be the style of all the members in that band to begin with (especially Mick and Colin, if you've heard any of their past projects or solo work). Very avant-garde and complex to say the least, with many unique elements building off a well established foundation. I don't know if I'd really consider it black metal in the traditional sense.
I'm always gonna go right to Opeth. They were my first real metal band and, I think, are really easy to get into.
I'm on board with your comments. This is a band that gets much love and clearly are amazing musicians. I just can't get into them. And, I really enjoy stuff like DSO which is also pretty dense.
I've given Sunbather many more spins than I ever did from Krallice's first releast 5 years ago. I just find it much more engaging musically. A little like DT (no, nothing like DT) in that I enjoy periodically but often zone out with enless wankery...."where's the song though all those brilliant solos!"
As much as I love Opeth, I didn't find them that easy to get into. I had to hear Blackwater Park a few times before I really started liking it. So far I've only heard that and Heritage, both of which I've come to really love. It just took me more time than say, In Flames.
I'd like to make another album suggestion; The Golden Age of Grotesque by Marilyn Manson.
I don't like all of his stuff as much, but this album I really like. If you're going to give Manson a try I'd say start with that one.
1. Start with some Thrash -
Metallica - Kill em All, And Justice For All, Ride The Lightning.
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Megadeth - Symphony Of Destruction
2. Then switch to some old school Metal -
Ironmaiden - Number of the Beast
3. Then switch to MetalCore/Death
As I lay Dying : Frail Words Collapse
All That Remains
4. Then switch to Death Metal
- Death - Symbolic, Sounds of Perseverance
- Cannibal Corpse
5. Then switch to Doom Metal
Katatonia, Anathema, In the Silence till - Monolith
6. Then switch to Tech Death
- Beyond Creation - The Aura
7. Then switch to Progressive Death
- Opeth, Enslaved, October Tide,
7. Then switch to Black
- Darkthrone, Emperor, Immortal, Mayhem
8. Then switch to Progressive/Post Black
- Deafheaven, Krallice
9. Then switch to Obscure Metal Bands:
Onazzi Pazuzu !!
Follow this circle, until you are able to create a stable routine of metal dosage for treating your mental ailments
Wow, this poor dude is getting swamped with recommendations here
Except for one recommendation.....Striborg.
Srsly?! One of the worst Black Metal bands I know. This dude is pooping out album after album even though he get's like the worst reviews from everywhere around the world. I don't know if he is just brave/trve/kvlt/etc. or the Tasmanian sun boiled his brain.
I guess I'm just not cool enough to enjoy this kind of BM.
Maybe it's just because I liked prog before that. Watershed and Ghost Reveries were love at first listen, and Watershed was the first album I heard where I could overlook the growls, and eventually be able to appreciate them.
Man, we think in completely opposite ways. I still can't get into your first four options. I went Prog Death -> Melodeath -> everything else (gradually). Although I do agree about saving BM for last.
I started with Old School and Power stuff, then went to Folk, followed by Black, Tech and even weirder things
From Maiden and Blind Guardian to Cynic and Deafheaven...sure took some time!
