Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

I love metal. Bear in mind, im also someone whos top 10 fave bands list is dominated by people like tori amos, pink floyd, elton john, and dmb. But i love metal, from old school Metallica (Lighting > Puppets > Justice make one of the best album runs out there, Puppets being one of metal's, and rock in general's, defining albums) and even older school Black Sabbath (Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is a perfect album), to new school stuff like Opeth, Immortal, and older In Flames (pre-Clayman).

So who here is into the heavier side of music? I dont meet many, if any, people that can appreciate the beauty of DMB's #41 yet still delve into brilliant heavy albums like Immortal's Sons of Northern Darkness or Opeth's Deliverance.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    I thought Stefan was more into hip-hop? I couldve sworn he was the one that said it would be cool to have dre produce the next album (before they got Batson). Where does he talk about metal, if you could show me?

    He's probably just referring to when Stefan mentioned he'd love to have Monkey or Head from Korn play with DMB some time. I think it was in one of the Cali interviews.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    I don't listen to a lot of metal, but there several bands that I absolutely love. Opeth being my favorite, then At the Gates, Dream Theater, and Tool are some more of my favorites, but Opeth absolutely takes the cake.

    Blackwater Park is one of my favorite albums ever.

    I believe it is the Stand Up Companion DVD where he is talking about how he is into heavier types of music. You are definetly right about hip hop, but I believe it is also metal.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    I want to ammend the last statement i made, Tim Reynolds listens to Opeth and death metal/metal, and obviously he knows the beauty of #41 (L@LC is one of my fave versions of the tune, still)

    first opeth album I got, and i got it on a whim. when the opening notes of The Leper Affinity kicked in, I was floored, and then when Mikael's vocals kicked in i was even more floored, it was nuts.

    The first time I heard him sing, I thought it was two different people. I didn't even think that the same person could scream where it sounds like he's killing his vocal cords, and then two seconds later he can break out into some incredible melodic singing.

    Ehhh...I used to be into Metallica, not so much anymore. The closest thing to metal I listen to(other than a few real metal songs here and there) is probably Led Zep and Jethro...and those aren't metal.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    i like some in flames stuff, not a really big fan, i only listen to them because my sister is a bigger metal head than me. i like sabbath, as i lay dying, a life once lost, unearth, some the classic struggle, some norma jean, killswitch engage, bands like that. i really love to listen to metal when im in a hyper mood i also like rob zombie...although im not sure if he's heavy metal or what...

    well, Zep, along with Black Sabbath and Deep Purple and the likes, started the trend of those great heavy riffs... so youre really listening to the birth of metal through rock there. In fact, Toni Iommi (of black sabbath) was actualy IN Jethro Tull for a short time. He performed with them... once or twice i believe for a tv performance, but unfortunatly they used the album track durring the performace so I dont know if a live cut of him actualy playing with them exists. I think they did Song For Jeffery with them (Tull is a fave band of mine too)

    Metallica got old. I think its sad when you can prefer Load/Reload over St. Anger, but the later was horrible, and the lyrics sounded like they were written by an autistic malnurished etheopian with a heroin problem ("Look out motherfuckers here I come / Gonna make my head home / The sons of bitches tried to take my head / Tried to make me someone else instead"?? christ in a carbomb thats horrid).

    Me too! there are bands that need the two singers, too, like Amorphis. I heard from... I think Tim told me actualy... that Mikael uses a particular breathing technique with his growls that makes it undamaging to his voice. seeing how his growl has actualy gotten DEEPER (as oposed to In Flames where the guy can barely growl anymore. It sounds like Kornweigian near-death metal), I believe it.

    Hehe, yeah, it used to bug me when people that were really into metal wouldn't appreciate Zeppelin in the least when they were one of the bands that layed out the foundation for metal.

    I haven't listened to anything In Flames has done in the last several years. They used to be one of my favorite bands, and now I just can't listen to them at all. It's like they hit they're peak with Clayman, and then just went straight to crap in no time at all.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    zep had more rock in them, sabbath had more metal, but thats only if you compare them to what genres emergred from their influence. they both came from very bluesy rock scenes and went in only slightly different directions, but both were integral in creating bands such as metallica, pantera, slayer, and other earlier metal bands that furthered the trend.

    I didnt even like Clayman, thinking that they peaked with Whoracle but Colony still rocked hardcore. From there it was pure shit. Cloud Connected makes me believe heterosexuality is a recessive gene.

    Its like people who like DMB not even appreciating the beatles. I mean, i'll be blasphemus and say I dont really like the beatles, but appreciating what they did for music is second nature.

    Erich, I think we've talked briefly about this before. I was brought up on heavy music and it is still my first true love. I'm glad to see someone else on here can appreciate it as much as I do. One thing I can't stand, however, is 80s hair metal with their spandex and wailing voices.

    Definitely not with you, but you are the first metal head Ive met who admits - at least implicitly to liking DMB. Rarely do those two go hand-in-hand.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    I'm definitely into the heavier side of things as well. I think both Zep and Sabboth had ALOT to do with shaping the progression of heavy music. I love Pantera. I think they are the best modern metal band, period.

    Now, I have been out of that scene for awhile, but this Opeth everyone is talking about has peaked my interest. Gonna have to check em out.

    The only thing worse than burning to death at a Great White concert is a Great White concert.

    For me, its classic metal (sabbath) > early 80s speed/thrash (metallica/slayer/venom/mercyful fate) > [reel missing] > 90s death/black metal and forward. the 80s for metal was just an embrassing time.

    What would you define as 80's metal? Big hair bands? I'm just curious.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    And I have to say, I'm not a fan of Metallica by any means, but Jesus, Master of Puppets really is one of the best metal albums in existence.

    I was a MASSIVE fan of nu-metal, but started getting out of it for heavier grindcore/metalcore/math metal stuff. Norma Jean (their first CD) is awesome, as is Dillinger Escape Plan. Zao is one of my absolute favorites. I haven't listened to much sludge other than Eyehategod, but I really like them. Dying Fetus is growing on me, too.

    Re: Im a metalhead. Who's with me?

    Haste the Day, As I lay Dying, Thrice, and Norma Jean are some pretty weird metallish stuff.

    But I like harder music, that what I listened to for the majority of the time before I got into DMB. mmmmm, days of System of a Down.

    But lately I've been listening to A LOT of smashing pumpkins. I like them tons.
