I was worried a bit when they lost their drummer and picked up the one from Shining, but I like some of the added drum kicks. The album is growing on me but so far I think I like Hammer of the North and Iron Will a bit more. All in all its still solid

I've been listening to it today. It's not bad, but certainly not as good as Days of Grays and obviously, different than everything pre-Unia.

It'll take me a while to make up my mind. Sonata Arctica albums rarely catch me at first. It takes a while for me to appreciate them.

I'm pretty sure I don't like Shitload O' Money though.

I must have really lovely taste in music because I really like the keyboards on Shitload Of Money

But I agree with you, this one will take a while to grow on me, but like most of Sonata's more recent albums it'll come around eventually. Except Unia and the most recent single because those are irredeemable pieces of poo poo.

I know it sounds weird, but NPR has really stepped up their metal coverage lately. In the past year, I can remember them having streaming Agalloch and Worm of Ouroboros concerts, and they had an article about Disma, of all bands, back in March of last year when it was about to be released...with the full album streaming. Also, not that anyone in this thread seems to still care about them, but I believe they were streaming Opeth's new album in its entirety as well.

So, I'm not surprised they're highlighting MDF.

I believe it was this past fall they actually had a few live sets from MDF streaming on their website. The only performance I remember was Exhumed's, but they had maybe three or four more. It's pretty crazy to think that a place like NPR has been paying attention to such niche styles of music in this recent year and a half, but I applaud them for doing so.

I've only listened to The Hunt a few times, and as awesome as Iron Will and Hammer of the North are, I can already say this tops them both in my book. There's just this certain kind of feel to it that blows my mind.

I know he's gunning for a D-Beat/Venom/Bathory niche with it and the thought of not hearing the best parts of Venom and Bathory come together is killing me. Are there any other bands that have done what he went for with this project?

The first two Toxic Holocaust albums are the closest things to it I've got, obviously, but I'm at the point where I want to rip the Yellowgoat preview to my ipod just so I can hear it all the time. The song he starts off at 3:25 is FILTHY.

Successfully? To my knowledge, not that many. That Yellowgoat clip kinda reminds me of what I love about Children of Technology, Bunker 66, Dishammer, Bastardator and even some elements of Carnivore, Hellhammer and newer Darkthrone. Particularly Dishammer's Vintage Addiction. It's like the bastard child of Discharge and Hellhammer.

I'd never heard of Dishammer before but grooveshark has this album up. Aside from the mix I like it. I really like the fact it was almost undoubtedly recorded with the whole band in one room, just playing, like a band SHOULD record.

They got bored of making the same album 5 times, so they made one album with 5 album's worth of ideas on it (Unia) and that pretty much exhausted their creative pool.

I'm just starting to get into metal and I'm still trying to figure out what I like. I saw Brutal Truth, Dropdead and Nasum live and I'm positive that I like grind, but then I went to a doom show (Church of Misery and The Gates of Slumber) and it reminded me a little too much of 80s hair metal. I do also like Withered, Dimmu Borgir and Amon Amarth. So what do I listen to next?

Nasum are amazing, great choice. I'd get Wormrot- Dirge, it's an excellent grind album, and I think it is still available for free from the label website. Highly recommended. I would also recommend Rotten Sound (their vocalist is doing the Nasum farewell shows), their most recent album "Cursed" is very good. Then, Insect Warfare- World Extermination. These guys only made 1 album before splitting but it is very good. Then of course there's Napalm Death, of the early stuff I would recommend Scum and From Enslavement to Obliteration, and of the later stuff, Smear Campaign.

Right then, recommendations for if you like Amon Amarth: At the Gates' album Slaughter of the Soul is essential melodeath, really, really good. You might like Children of Bodom too, Hatecrew Deathroll is a fun album. Other than that I'm not too into melodeath, so I'll let someone else field the rest of that question.

Dimmu Borgir: Rotting Christ's recent stuff, particularly Theogonia comes highly recommended from me. I feel obliged to recommend Cradle of Filth too, they often get paired with Dimmu, but I would definitely stick to their earlier releases as they have suffered something of a decline in recent years. You might enjoy Immortal's albums A Heart of Winter and All Shall Fall, they are definitely more pure black metal, but they definitely retain a sense of melody. I would also recommend Keep of Kalessin, Kolossus and Reptilian are both great albums, and finally, Watain's album, Lawless Darkness. Flawless black metal riffing on that album with some awesome lead guitar parts as well.

I realise there's a lot of stuff there, so I hope you find something you like

SepticFlesh is indeed awesome! They pull off the whole symphonic metal so much better than most. Instead of just being a backdrop to the riffs, they really infuse the orchestra parts into their music. Communion is a beast of an album. Seen them a couple of times live and they pull it off pretty well live too.
