Neurosis was one of their big influences, but they may not be exactly what you're looking for. Check out Through Silver in Blood, which is generally regarded as their best album. Same for Godflesh, who peaked with Streetcleaner.

Last.fm's bio has this quote, which you may find useful:

quote:

The distinctive tone of material since and including Oceanic had a noticeable impact on avant-garde metal, helping develop the sound of several contemporaries; Cult of Luna, Pelican, Tides, Rosetta, and Russian Circles all cite Isis as an influence. This underground success attracted the attention of the likes of Mogwai, with whom they have toured on numerous occasions.

Most similar I can think, post metally with both clean and heavy vocals would be Mouth of the Architect, folk always say Cult of Luna too, and their latest album with Julie Christmas is fantastic. Omega massif does have some isisy vibes but is all instrumental.


Other heavy post metal stuff that may or may not be what you're after
Lightbearer
Russian Circles

Jesu would be another good one to check out, as well as Red Sparowes and Windmills by the Ocean, both of which have/had members in common with Isis.

Pelican are pretty much ISIS Jr. but instrumental and like it was mentioned above, if you've never listened to "Through Silver in Blood" by Neurosis that should absolutely be stop #1.

What is some good Psychedelic but heavy metal? Like, I don't really want vocals, but minimal vocals is on. Something trippy with fuzzy lead guitar tone.

SLEEP is pretty much the pinnacle of psychedelic metal to me (i guess it would be stoner metal). They have lyrics in some parts of their stuff, but there's often long 20 minute stretches of pure buzzsaw guitar. I suppose start here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIw7oeZKpZc

There's also Electric Wizard. Lyrics here too, but not too invasive.:

I bounce off metal hard, but "Reign in Blood" is one of the best albums ever. Where should I go next? I tend to bounce off Guitar Shop Employee "more notes = better" metal in particular, and Metallica dont seem to understand the value of not spending 4 minutes of a song making music for sad cowboys who ride a lonely steel horse before getting to the good parts.

Other metal I've enjoyed has included Ministry and Melvins, and maybe Dinosaur Jr if you are pushing the definition hard. I've also enjoyed the likes of Lightning Bolt, DFA 1979 and Deathscalator.

Which Metallica have you listened to? They've made several big changes in sound at various points in their career, and the stuff they were putting out around the time of Reign in Blood definitely put them in the same ballpark.

Metallica and Slayer were half of the big four of thrash metal. The other two were Megadeth and Anthrax, and they might be worth checking out. For Megadeth, start with either Peace Sells... or Rust in Peace. For Anthrax, start with Among the Living. If you like other of those, there might be some other thrash or speed metal acts worth checking out.

Ministry is generally considered more industrial than metal. The list of similar artists from last.fm is a good place to start.

Melvins get lumped with stoner, doom and sludge but they're not exactly in any of those genres. What's your take on early Alice in Chains?

The first Metallica album is not like that! Much more purely fun thrash. Honestly if you love Reign in Blood you should just dive into the heaviest, most pummeling poo poo, such as Demolition Hammer or Morbid Saint. If you enjoy those, get back to me and I can start throwing out death metal recs. Vocals are often an acquired taste but if you like Slayer you should have no problem enjoying Possessed or the first couple of Death albums.

You're getting way far away from the metal genre at this point (though J Mascis does like metal and plays drums in a doom band called Witch). What you're looking for here is noise rock. Nobody really sounds like Lightning Bolt but some of that manic energy can be found in Melt-Banana.

Lots of good recommendations above, currently enjoying Morbid Saint, so more along those lines would be cool. And yeah, you made the bell chime that I might be more of a noise guy, but weirdly have never properly explored Melt Banana! Thanks both!

Vektor rules but comes with the disclaimer that the main guy is a wife beating piece of poo poo. Just an FYI if that affects your listening habits.

If you don't like to separate art from the artist, a lot of metal is going to be problematic at best.

i saw a local Portland band open for PILE called Sea Moss that scratched that lightning bolt/melt-banana itch, except with less buzzsaw guitar and more beeps n boops.

I think even if you don't care about that Vektor is not the best starting recommendation because like all current thrash bands they're hearkening back to 80s stuff when the genre was healthy so you should listen to their influences first.

They certainly do but they have a far more unique sound than like 99% of modern thrash. But part of that is they just have different influences than most.

This is a lot muddier than I'm looking for I think. It's brutal as hell but like the vocals aren't as expressive. The vocalist on Trample the Weak who went on to Origin has a fuller sound and the instruments just sound brighter I guess? Defeated Sanity is just past my threshold where I can really appreciate it.
