Boris did Flood 3 and 4 as their last two songs

It went on for about half an hour and I stood there with my jaw open for easily more than five minutes straight, I think I forgot to breathe.

They also opened with 8 minutes of pure doom

Great gig, so happy they just played such a variety.

That's pretty slick. I really want to see Boris play.

Boris was outstanding when I saw them a couple years ago. Their set sounds similar to what Quantum saw - opening and closing with just straight doom drone, but they also played some cuts from Pink (which I love), and they played for close to two hours I think.

I was a little surprised that they weren't as crushingly loud as I expected, and Wata is waaaay shorter than I realized.

Great shou though, for sure.

I'm just catching on to Dragged Into Sunlight. They are worth checking out if you want some doomy sludgey deathmetally dark oppressiveness.

This is from their second album "Widow Maker": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc-PZW-xtgk
That album has three parts. The first is a lengthy clean guitar atmospheric instrumental, the second is what is linked above and the third is more like the 2nd except toned down a bit.

Their first album "Hatred for Mankind" is a bit more death metal.

Pretty cool stuff

How I got into doom metal? Well, let's see...

Started out by becoming a metalhead in the first place in 1988; for the first few years it was mostly thrash and "plain" metal (i.e. Iron Maiden and such), then death and a little early black metal; my gateway into the doom subgenre was via the early-90s death-doom style as it developed (My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, etc). Later in the 1990s and more so after 2000 I gradually became more fond of doom metal as such (for instance, I'd heard and liked Candlemass many years previously but it was only around the time of the 2005 "reunion" that I went into full-obsessive mode wrt their old albums).

I thought the newer album was a bit of a letdown, but mostly because the production on the first was so filthy and fit the style so well.

I saw High On Fire at the Wicker Park Street Fest like 6 or 7 years ago and it was loving AMAZING. Nothing like seeing a nice and heavy band playing out in the middle of a crowded city street with the El Train showering sparks every now and again from up above.

e: Saw The Sword last night at El Rey in Los Angeles. What a fun show, I even liked the opening bands. American Sharks from Texas were pretty good, and the 2nd opener, Gypsyhawk, had a song about Robert Baretheon that they played which was pretty hilarious. Also, when they introduced their drummer, they followed it with "FIrst of his name." haha.

I have just been introduced to both records so my perspective is kind of screwed but I prefer Windowmaker to Hatred for Mankind. I really like the more drawn out approach they seem to be going for there. I wish the album was longer. This riff they use starting at 2:46 rules so very very much. (linked in time right before that part): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc-PZW-xtgk#t=144s

Boris has tons of stuff so it might change depending on what you like, but I don't think you can go wrong with Pink or Heavy Rocks (the first one).

Melvins gots tons too, but I started with Gluey Porch Treatments and don't regret it at all

They both have loads of stuff and neither keeps to one style. I think Akuma no Uta is a good starting place for Boris, it has some drone stuff and shows their more rock side too. For more heavy stuff and drone, there's Flood, Amplifier Worship, Absolutego, Feedbacker, the Thing Which Solomon Overlooked and others. I'm not so familiar with their rock/punk albums, but definitely Pink and Smile. Their collaboration with Merzbow, Rock Dreams, is also decent - mostly rehashes of other songs they've done but louder. I also liked the album they did with Sunn O))), Altar. It doesn't sound much like either band but it is really good.

I think Stoner Witch and Houdini are as good starting places as any for Melvins. Try this thread too, I think they've been brought up a couple of times: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=2761269

e: If you like ToLRTD you might give Thrones a look too. Joe Preston has collaborated/played with with Sunn O))), Melvins and Earth as well.

No problem

For Boris, Feedbacker, Akuma no Uta...actually I'm just looking at big scary monster's post and he's dead on with the Boris recommendations.

As for Melvins, Bullhead, Ozma, Houdini, Stoner Witch are all cool. Some of their new stuff is great too but I've only heard it live and I'm not really sure what albums they're from.

I know that this thread has been recommending Ahab for ages, just got round to listening to The Giant. Wow, this is great. Somehow reminds me of Pantheist - I think it's the vocal style - but the riffs are so much better.

The Vancouver show would have been excellent if only Matt's guitar had been louder. Venue's sound system seems to be designed with club music in mind, since the bass and kick drum were the loudest parts of the mix. On the plus side, the whole band played very well, and the setlist ruled. 10,000 Years, Last, Speedwolf and Rumors of War/DII were all included, along with the newer material. It was great fun, but I kept flashing back to the Richard's on Richards show in 2007 where Pike's guitar was almost painfully loud, and he was so into it that he almost kicked me in the head.

I don't personally care for Goatwhore's music, but they are definitely a well-polished band, and I thought Lo Pan were good but pretty repetitive. I have to give a shout out to my brothers in ANCIIENTS who opened the show, and who will be putting out their full length on Season of Mist in the new year.

Also shout out to Translink for making me miss the last half of High On Fire's set! I had the same qualms with the sound so I didn't mind having to leave. Ancients definitely deserve more love, glad to see them on the up.

The Richard's show was awesome, my favourite was the Red Room show on the Blessed Black Wings tour, that was amazing.

rxcowboy posted:

I think we should all share our stories of when we first heard and got into this type of music.

I was born and raised on Black Sabbath, but when I became a teenager and got into music I was more interested in thrash metal so I never bothered to explore the slower side of things more (I bought a copy of Kyuss' Blues for the Red Sun, but it just gathered dust for a couple years). Then one day, I was at a family party. One of my aunts comes up to me and says "have you ever met your mom's cousin Armando? He has long hair just like yours, and he's always wearing black clothes and a leather jacket. He's a drummer in a band, they're named after a saint... Saint Vitus, I think." So I go home and look them up online, thinking I'm going to find maybe one mention of a crappy garage band or something. And that's how I discovered Born Too Late. I've been hooked ever since.

I never did get to meet Armando, unfortunately...

what quantum of phallus said, plus Hostile Ambient Takeover. regarding newer releases with the 4-piece line-up, they're all good, but my favorite is Nude With Boots. NWB has kind of a classic rock feel for some songs, A Senile Animal just has alot of great rock songs, 7 or 8 in a row actually, The Bride Screamed Murder is more great rock with kind of a weird bent, and The Bulls & The Bees, the free 5-song EP, has a killer epic rock song, a killer stoner rock song, then a couple other good rockers and an ambient one made with an iphone.

The Today Is The Day albums Temple of the Morning Star, In The Eyes of God (Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher were on this one and early Mastodon is basically a TITD cover band), and Kiss The Pig are all along those lines. The rest of their albums are really good too. If you're cool with really lo-fi a bunch of powerviolence bands like Crossed Out, Infest, Apartment 213, Despise You, etc. do the blastbeat to sludge breakdown thing as well. Also Crom. Can't say enough good things about Crom. The last Xibalba album is heavier than poo poo too.

That's lame. I think they're supposed to be starting a Euro tour shortly, but may be misremembering. It's really worth seeing, if for no other reason than you get to feel sound like no other way. As an unexpected bonus, Earth played before Sunn O))). I already got to see them a couple weeks ago, but I'll be damned if it wasn't a welcome surprise.

It was a decent show here in Seattle, but it was really lacking in the enthusiasm. I think it was made more pronounced by how into their performance Goatwhore was. They're not really my thing either, but I'll be damned if they weren't fun to watch.

starting album The Melvins??

The Melvins have never released a bad studio album IMO, but all of their stuff is kinda challenging and hard to get into in its own way. Houdini is their most famous album, the first of three major label releases ever in the band's history and it sort of hits all the Melvins high notes (fast 1-2 minute-long hardcore-metal songs, 6-minute+ slow burners, weird noisy stuff and experimentation) along with containing a lot of their most famous songs and live standards. The first five tracks on Houdini will teach you a lot of what you need to know about the band's sound.

After Houdini I recommend the rest of the Atlantic trilogy (Stoner Witch and Stag, the former is jam-packed full of really heavy rockin' stuff, the latter's a little more proggy and experimental), then the old stuff, then the Big Business-era stuff and Freak Puke, then the stuff released in the interim period between Stag and A Senile Animal.

Really though, if you're at a loss then just pick something. It's all varying degrees of weird as well as varying degrees of good, and there is a lot of material to get through.
