I just discovered DJ Rozwell and NONE OF THIS IS REAL plus the various expansion packs and I completely love the "fantasy audio hip-hop roguelike tape" concept. What are some other albums (albums?) that experiment with form?

edit: I already know of Zaireeka and Dronevil.

I know I'm very late the to the party, but who should I check out if I like Megadeth and don't care for the other "Big Four" bands at all? Slayer's too monotone and grind-y, Metallica's fine but a little boring and Anthrax just does nothing for me. I dig how proggy and melodic a lot of Megadeth songs are.

Elder, specifically the albums Dead Roots Stirring, Lore, and Reflections of a Floating World

They’re not really that close in sound to Megadeath, but they’re proggy and melodic, especially in Reflections of a Floating World. Very much metal but pretty accessible.

Nevermore and Iced Earth are worth checking out. Dream Theater if you don't need anything particularly heavy. Cynic if you want something very proggy. Let us know what you think of those and that'll help to pick other options.

weird "big four" that doesn't include Iron Maiden, whom you should listen to if you haven't already

V ah, yeah, failed to connect the dots; Metallica changed so much that i forget that they're thrash at heart

Oh yeah, I should add that I'm a big metal fan (mostly prog/weird stuff like Dream Theater, Animals as Leaders, Anaal Nathrakh, etc) but anything before like 1990 is a huge blindspot for me. Thanks for the Iced Earth recommendation; I loved Horror Show when it came out but I'd completely forgotten about them.

I was going to an effort post on the early history of heavy metal, but I think it's better if I just recommend that you read Sound of the Beast: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal. It's more of a history of metal as a cultural phenomenon than it is about the music, but it's still a comprehensive account of everything happened before about 2000 and will give you a lot of insight as to what might be worth looking at from that time period.

How about early Voivod(up to Killing technology) or maybe some tech thrash like Mekong Delta and Watchtower and Coroner

yeah definitely check out voidod. id start with nothingface and work backward through their discography from there if they fit the bill.

cornoner's "no more color" is the perfect amount of tech/thrash without getting too heavy in to the former imo and this song is flawless

Some great recommendations, thanks folks. By sheer chance, I stumbled on the exact sound I was looking for this morning when messaging my partner about Ghost Box records in The Pattern Forms

https://youtu.be/marweWtJ3Pk

I held off on mentioning Boards of Canada and Burial earlier because I didn't actually know what Hauntology is, and finally got around to reading the wikipedia page and there they were. I like Burial but find it kind of boring after an hour, but he's for sure got the low-fi melancholy in the exact center of a huge space sound. Boards of Canada puts me in a really weird way, so I have to be in the right headspace to listen to them, but it's hard to do exactly what they do better than them. Their track Gyroscope uses a clip from a numbers station and it'll make you feel strange. Most of their catalog is really good at evoking images, feelings, or concepts that aren't there explicitly. It seems like the core of hauntology doesn't include them, but it's interesting in the same way.

wrt boards of canada: 'music has the right to children' feels more haunted and broody to me than 'the campfire headphase' which has these really triumphant songs on it like davyan cowboy. still, BoC is incredible

Yeah, I'm listening to Music Has The Right To Children right now and that's very accurate. It's kind of interesting to scroll through the comments section on their youtube videos, basically every one of them has a dozen comments talking about how the music makes them feel, images it creates, or memories it stirs up. That kind of stands out from other music to me.

Any recommendations for folk ballads sung by a woman, in english, with minimal accompaniment, like maybe a guitar and or some drums but not, like. A whole cacophonous band.

Any culture, I was looking for icelandic and irish recently but I'll take whatever, including from USA, Canada, etc.

I don't know how strict you want to stick to a.) ballads or b.) traditional, but Gillian Welch/Dave Rawlings Machine, Aoife O'Donovan, Sara Jarosz, and Sarah Watkins all do a lot of older songs that are familiar enough to feel like a traditional even though they're attributable to a different musician. Gospel, folk, bluegrass, old time included. Same for Rhiannon Giddens, though she is a fantastic historian of spirituals, hymns, gospel, slave songs, maybe even some Gullah music. Again, not all ballads or true traditionals, but old and familiar(ish) folk songs.

Elizabeth Cotten is amazing for who she was and deserves to be more of a legend in my opinion. She was on the bluesier end of folk.

Emily Haines' two solo albums might work. I genuinely like them better than anything by Metric, her main band.

poo poo I got beaten to the punch on the Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares comp. If you want to count when a band slaps all their singles on to one album as a compilation I do like The Who's Meaty, Beaty, Big, and Bouncy if only because it's the easiest way to get The Seeker which is one of my personal favorites.


Speaking of the Acid Nightmares album is there any other good heavy psych or hard rock out there like it, either new or old? Other semi-related things I have been listening to are Parish Hall, Orang-utan, and hell let's toss in Lord Sutch and Smile's cover of Purple Haze for good measure too.

Heavy psych immediately makes me think of the psychic paramount, but after listening to that stuff I don't think it really fits as a recommendation.
