I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth; fucked both a chick and her mom

I will get anal. Oh yes.

I know this is a random question but here goes: My girlfriend's father just passed away, and she received his stereo system and his record player. He had boxes upon boxes of old records on vinyl which will be awesome to explore.

But now that I have a record player and a good system to hook it up to, I'd like to hear some metal on vinyl. Do any metal bands put their albums out on vinyl anymore? And if so, where can I find them at? Or is there a reliable site to get modern bands on vinyl? I know alot of the old stuff I know I can use EBAY for alot of older material but I hate using ebay for anything.

Tons of metal bands still release stuff on vinyl. A lot of larger labels' webshops will have their bands albums (Century Media, Nuclear Blast, Season of Mist) as well as some shops that are as much distros as labels (PlasticHead) and some smaller labels often specialize somewhat in releasing or distributing records (Hells Headbangers, Nuclear War Now!), plus there are a few companies that purely deal with vinyl releases (Back On Black, MetalVinyl.es). Records are all over the place, most labels either handle their own vinyl releases or license them to a specialty label.

Well the guy who made that song is also responsible for some of the most iconic 80s hip hop songs (Beastie Boys, Run DMC, 99 Problems) and a ton of metal production (uh Slayer, Danzig). And the song is probably like 8 years old now, so its not really nowadays.

Live Undead and Haunting the Chapel are my favorites. Not really into Reign in Blood and everything after. Except for the hardcore album, that one rules.

I'm guessing this is responding to me...Most touring stuff plays at Reggies Rock club, Bottom Lounge, or nowadays Mojoes(but gently caress that place). Some local stuff gets thrown in random places like The Fallout(which is like...a bomb shelter looking thing inside, its awesome). A guy who promotes a lot of local shows throughs little day fests there once in a while like Klash of the Thrash, or Thrashgiving(complete with turkey dinner).

Other then that, lots of bar venues like the Empty Bottle, Ye Old Towne Inn, beat kitchen...occasionally The Exit has a show upstairs...Honestly the only way I can keep track of this poo poo is by having lots of friends that send me invites for every show that gets thrown. Starting June 20th theres a show nearly every day...(June 21st Carnal Decay, 22nd Hell Awaits, 23rd They Die Screaming, 26th Death, 27th Landmine Marathon.)

EDIT: As for slightly bigger Chicago bands, outside Nachtmystium(I think whats his name moved to California though) and Bongripper theres Cianide, Macabre, Cardiac Arrest, Morgue Supplier, Diamond Plate, Indian, Bible of the Devil, Drug Honkey, Reign Inferno, Bones(Ex-Usurper members), Kommandant, The Atlas Moth, off the top of my head. There are countless random local bands though, especially thrash, too much goddamn thrash..


EDIT: VVV loving Mojoes

If it's distinct from track 2, probably just an intro. If it's essentially the intro to track 2, a lead-in.

Sometimes intros are good. Baroness' Blue Record has an intro and an outro that are pretty drat good. Bullhead's Psalm, and it segways really well into the second track, The Sweetest Curse.

Baroness is for the stoner/doom thread I guess, but not all 'intro' songs are bad; just most of them.

I've been listening to ICS Vortex's album Storm Seeker a lot lately and I want to tell you about it.

ICS Vortex is the guy who did the clean singing parts for

Dimmu's Progencies of the Great Apocalypse

Borknagar's Collosus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuQxHAYpu4Q

And all things Arcturus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ubryx5b5awo

His album Storm Seeker is great.

That's it. I'm not a review writer or anything. I'm just enjoying the hell out of this record.

edit: and since we're on the topic of intro/outro's, there is no intro to the album but there is an outro track which is moog.

I generally don't like Dimmu Borgir but this single song, specifically starting with Vortex's clean vocal, is a track I use to convince disbelievers that metal can be objectively amazing. Too bad Shagrath is s terrible vocalist. Just terrible.

I just remembered that the only thing I didn't like about Cephalic Carnage's Xenosapien was the interminable "hidden track" of sub-Melvins sludge riffing that was the only thing keeping it from being my favorite extreme metal record ever. (it still kinda is though)

The Arcturus / Borknagar influences are strong but not overpowering which is nice.

I'm really enjoying that Storm Seeker album so far, thanks for the heads up! His vocals were one of my favorite parts of Arcturus and Dimmu Borgir.

I'm also glad to see another Leprous fan, Bilateral was easily my favorite album of 2011, I made one of my few metal thread posts last year ranting and raving about how good they are. Forced Entry is such a great song, its hard to believe its 10 minutes long!

Since you said you are looking for music similar to them, I would highly, highly recommend the self-titled Suspyre album which was just released a few months ago. It's by far my favorite album this year so far. Extremely well polished and produced, lots of proggy / jazz/ fusion elements like Leprous, and the lead singer is fantastic. I don't think there is a single bad track on this, although my favorites are Still Bending the Violet, The Fire Dancer, The Cycle, and The Man Made of Stone.

Unfortunately they don't have any full length songs from the new album on youtube to preview, but they do have this 2 minute clip of snippets up that I think gives a decent idea of what to expect

Leprous, Suspyre

Bilateral is probably one of my most heavily played albums of 2011. They're really amazing. Forced Entry is my go-to introduction song for people who haven't heard them, although Acquired Taste is the perfect intro to Leprous for the non-metal friend (the name is perfect too).

Suspyre sounds promising I'll be sure to keep my ears open for them.

With all the talk of avant-garde-y stuff, I feel like I should post Virus, who I came across thanks to this blog post. I can't quite decide if I like it or not, but it's certainly interesting.
