I'm digging the new Mastodon, but I didn't at first. I liked Curl of the Burl quite a bit, but Black tongue turned me off of the whole album for a couple listens. Then I got into Stargasm and Dry Bone Valley. From there most of the album opened up to me. I don't see it as good as the previous three, but its still better than 99% of what is offered to us. Also, theres this:

Take Elvis, make the Stray Cats his backing band and that's the idea behind volbeat. Lemmy's playing with some of them in Head Cat now, and I think all 3 of them are better. Rockabilly was punk before then and I doubt Danzig didn't take some cues from it.
Come to think of it, Man's Gin is doing something similar. Erik Wunder is probably best known around here for Cobalt, but then he does that whole mostly-acoustic upright-bass bar music. It's sort of like heavy metal, but you take the metal away, so it's just heavy. I guess I just really want something between this and this*. Or any of the other songs on the album. Smiling Dogs is so good.

*Other than Kvelertak.

Could anyone recommend where I should start digging for getting into thrash? I've been listening to Toxic Holocaust and Skeletonwitch and would like to find more like this. As these suggest, I dig the blackened thrash thing, and anything that has the same kind of rock the gently caress out feel to it like the newer Darkthrone releases, Kvelertak, etc. Aura Noir are pretty cool.

Just checked out 'Bored' and 'Truce' by Death Angel. Both are loving awesome, thanks! Seems both their older and newer stuff is great at a first glance.

Looked up a few American Heritage songs... Not feeling it. Horned Almighty is interesting, I dig a lot of the "new old school" stuff.

What are you talking about? This track slays like Immolation always does.

So stoked to see them on Friday, with Jungle Rot and Gigan as support.

vvvvv I'll admit that it doesn't hold up to my usual standards for Immolation, but I dug the track. As for simplistic breakdowns like that, they have done it in the past and it hasn't affected the songs negatively, and I didn't think it did in this track, either. They went for a more straight-forward style, but the Immolation riffing was certainly there.

Boring and predictable song structure, uninspired riffing and a totally bruuuuuuuutal breakdown. On Majesty And Decay they could get away with a drop off in quality because it's fuckin Immolation and they were still ahead of pretty much everyone, but they can't get away with that on this album. It'll get you from point A to point B, and it'll get a crowd breaking their necks, but goddamn if we haven't heard this poo poo a million times before. Also, think about their previous albums. This stuff just doesn't hold up in comparison.

I'm really shocked no one else recommended you this yet, but Deströyer 666 is an excellent start. Get "Cold Steel... for an Iron Age" since it's the thrashiest of the bunch. You might also check out Absu, Gospel of the Horns and Nifelheim.

You might like to try Warbringer a try. They just released a new album.

I don't even know if he is playing with Testament right now, or if this has any effect on the upcoming tour, but it's still news worth sharing.

James Murphy (Testament, Obituary, Death/mixed tons of albums) 's brain tumor has come back. I know it's blabbermouth, but I've seen this confirmed by several of his friends on facebook as well.

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bl...wsitemID=164299

Oddly enough, this is the 3rd brain tumor of a Tampa-related musician (Chuck, Murphy and Curtis Beeson). Weird.

Anyway, I'll keep posted about benefit shows or anything.

I caught them yesterday and they loving killed as usual, especially on Yom Kippur making it extra ironic and hilarious. It was a poo poo venue (I actually had to help the sound guy with monitoring levels?) with about 20 people there excluding the other bands, but got to meet everyone which was awesome. Bob was giving Providence to everyone, it's a solid EP but comparing it to Close To A World Below is just silly. I took some HD vids of their set that I'm gonna post once I get around to it.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys.

I really enjoyed Hexen, will be getting State of Insurgency. This is exactly what I'm after.

Gospel of the Horns is sick, I love that evil rock and roll kinda thing. Same goes for Nifelheim. I think a lot of bands that try to do this sort of thing just sound really flat, but this owns.

Deathwish, Destroyer 666 and Warbringer are good. Especially Deathwish.

Chakal and Demolition Hammer are alright.

Didn't dig Vulcano or Sarcofago much, though. I'll look at other tracks when I have some more time but they didn't really grab me.

No-one mentioned them but in my search I've found Coroner and Municipal Waste. Yeaaah!

I'm not a fan of death or black metal, just because I get turned off by the "look how extreme/evil we are" scene of it all, so a minimal number of stories on that would be good.

I mostly listen to stoner/sludge/doom metal and thrashy stuff. I'll sometimes dip into metalcore or melo-death, but mostly just select albums here and there.

Seconding the Vektor recommendation. They're coming out with a new album pretty soon I believe. The band has an extremely tight sound considering the speed and complexity of their songs.
