Yes, that too. I'm not very good at describing this stuff. I mean heavier riffs used as a kind of breakdown in a song, more often than not playing triplets in some way. The kick drum also helps a lot in achieving what I'm looking for.

The point of posting those two clips was to show what i like from Dimmu especially.

To apply this to other genres, this is also in the same "style" that I'm looking for:
Tool - Stinkfist 4:20 until 4:40. Here it's more of a build up than a breakdown though.
Hope that helps!

Try some bolt thrower. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9T5Zo3wnHw

edit: also the style of drumming you dislike is a "blastbeat".

Another band I like that has awesome/"unique" vocals is Lost Horizon. Heiman's voice is just utterly fantastic and is one of the greatest voices ever in my opinion. His range is amazing and is one of the main reasons why Lost Horizon was so awesome. That wail during Highlander is amazing. Please go back to Lost Horizon and record a new album Daniel
Oh hell yeah, if they only came back I'd lose my loving mind. Heiman's singing is just out of this world. It's amazing just how effortlessly he seems to reach all those highest notes, he never ever sounds forced at all. The best power metal vocalist ever, hands down.
And of course the band's music is awesome too. They didn't even need orchestrations, just some spacey synth sounds were enough for the poo poo to sound so much larger than life.
I want more of this poo poo, come back Lost Horizon!


And uh, guys, Northern Kings did TWO 80s cover albums actually, and that was a few years ago already. It was the whole idea behind them, really. :P
I love the idea myself, especially since three of those four singers are drat great (Kakko can go gently caress himself, he sounds like a guddamn sheep). Too bad the execution of the idea is less than stellar, the tracks just sound so weak somehow.

Ugh I thought Northern Kings would just never appear in this thread but here we are. Why are they trying to make Creep extremely epic?

Edit: Ok I guess I like their Don't Stop Believing cover, but maybe that's because I hear the same drat song played at every Detroit Red Wings game. And this is a change of pace. I still don't get why they make everything as epic as possible. Are they making money from these?

I was very jealous of Manilla Road being there until I found out they are playing at MDF. That's a great lineup, minus Agalloch, who are boring. I fell asleep during their set at MDF.

I go every year regardless but last year I wasn't too excited about the lineup. This next year looks like it's off to a pretty drat good start. I'm glad they're breaking their unwritten no power/trad heavy metal rule by bring Manilla Road in.

With that rule now broken I think it'd be bad rear end if they could get King Diamond and Running Wild for next year. Both just got back to touring this year after a long hiatus and would be awesome for MDF.

I'm gonna buy that album first thing when I get some money on my bank account, these guys deserve some drat support.

I first heard them (The Fire We Fathered) on a free comp and immediately bought the album. I pimp them whenever I can because I'm a whore for acoustic black metal. I still like Hail Wind And Hewn Oak better than their latest, so pick that up too (though I agree the production on Light is perfection).

I wanted to go to MDF so bad last year but extenuating circumstances didn't make it possible. The lineup is already off to an awesome start for next year though so I'm really going to try and make it this time

Sybreed skates a very thin line somewhere between Meshuggah and Blood Stain Child in terms of tech-math-x vs. pure cheese melodeath, but goddamn if Ego Bypass Generator isn't a fantastic song regardless of your metal taste (besides, I guess, the goregrind guys). I haven't heard any demos yet, I'd ask for a link but is always a concern so just be aware of where you link from.

I've thought the same for a while. Stumbled upon a drum circle, not long after watching that there Headbanger's Journey, and thought, "Leather-lunged vocals soaring over super-heavy bass, eh?" It's crazy how badass and intimidating that can sound. Like, it was just 6 dudes and one drum, but it sounds like a whole army when done well. So many Native metalheads, but no bands. It would be interesting to hear what they come up with, as their cultural wounds are so fresh.

When I bring this up with my Native friends, though, they're just like, "poo poo's sacred, white boy. gently caress you." Then, I am sad.

Industrial metal didn't go anywhere as a subgenre label, and these "cyber-metal" bands always end up somewhere between melodic death or technical. Then again I kind of despise subgenre labeling anyway since it doesn't do anything except start arguments; if you want to describe a band's sound, you're usually better off listing the band's antecedents ("this band sounds like a cross between x y and z bands") because even then if you haven't heard of any of the listed bands you have a few new bands to check out!
