Yeah, agreed. It's been a while since I got really hooked by a new power metal band, but I'm really digging this. Reminds me a bit of a ballsier Jag Panzer.

edit: ah, Harry Conklin is the vocalist for Satan's Host. That's probably where I'm getting those vibes.

As hokey as they are, Cradle have always had good production values for their videos. Dimmu Borgir too.

Emperor's clip for "Empty" was pretty solid, and most of Swallow the Sun's videos, while confusing as hell, are beautifully shot.

I also enjoyed Finntroll's "Under Bergens Rot" video, cos it was... umm... cute?

Because it's a tired old gimmick where fat nerds who think pirates are cool get to listen to generic accordions layered over cock-rock guitar riffs while pretending they are living in a year where electric guitars never existed. It's like gangster rap about proofs by induction or 80's synth-pop about heterosexual relationships. It doesn't go together and everyone involved in those scenes are laughing at you constantly while you dress up like a tool thinking you're awesome.

Basically we're better than you.

Honestly, I wish more modern metal bands did clean vocals, especially in thrash. Charred Walls of the Damned aren't great, but it's fun to hear me some Ripper Owens over thrashy riffs and extreme metal drumming. Plus I just love Richard Christy.

New Deceased is great. Pretty much the flipside of As the Weird Travel On... in that it's death/thrash with heavy metal influences, and it's still got that oldschool heavy metal guitar tone going through all the riffs.

And well it's hardly the "last few weeks", but I recommend Venenum (everyone from Excoriate except the singer), Stench of Decay, Corpsessed, Vanhelgd, Morbus Chron, Gorephilia, Bone Sickness, Disma, Desolate Shrine.

That should cover you for death metal, aside from the obvious stuff like Autopsy and of course, if you dig NC, you've got to check Sonne Adam.

Morbus Chron and the Vanhelgd were both releases I meant to pick up and forgot, thanks for the mention! New Satan's Host sounded cool, shame Jag Panzer are no more though.

That new Autopsy was pretty drat solid, a slow burner though as the first few tracks weren't that interesting until a few listens.

The description of the new Deceased is boner inducing!

Not sure if anyone cares, but the new Anubis Gate is also out soon.

Speaking of Alestorm, I was going to see them last night but a ticket on the same day of the show was like $42 and I was like, fuuuuuuuck that. I still haven't (been sober enough to remember having) seen Swashbuckle yet, but I've met all of the guys from it and they're pretty cool.

Eh, I've made my peace with Iron Maiden and their fans, though I do get your point about singing. As far as clean vocals go, I tend to like weird over "good" (Dave Mustaine, for example), and I like both over Bruce "Cat Being Murdered" Dickinson.

Anyhow, clean vocal-ed metal ahoy (going to see these guys in a little under 23 hours, dying of excitement):

That song is only good when I'm in an advanced state of drunkenness, which I'm pretty sure means that I don't ACTUALLY like it. Den Frusna Munnen is probably my favorite song on Nifelvind.

Anyone here like Equilibrium? They're like Finntroll, but a little heavier and are consistently less gimmicky (don't listen to "Met" though).

Man, I am just full of recommendations this morning.

It's a slippery slope, but it's part of the trend of cramming genre's together in some stupid goddamn mishmash instead taking a natural development of sound.

The issue with power metal is it has many different facets. I pretty much detest 95% of it, and just about all of what could reasonably be termed "modern power metal" is tripe. But there was an undeniable heyday in the 80s where the genre was still in its formulative state and influences ranged from thrash/speed to NWOBHM (which is where Maiden come in) and classic heavy metal.

I mean, early Helloween is quite different to what they put out later.Helstar pretty much define US power metal on their first 4 albums.

Oh and of course given the last few posts i'm not missing the chance to point out that this is power metal (albeit with a dose of speed).

Theres not really a lot you can do with power metal. Where other bands are broadening genres power metal stays the same.

Power metal, power metal never changes.

Dec 28, 2006



I'm glad for that. To me, power metal is perfect at what it does, and for the most part it seems largely above the race to the bottom many other subgenres of metal suffer from. It's not my favorite kind of metal, but I like how consistent it has been over the years.

I like new ideas, but I have a hard time appreciating change for the sake of change. Making your music harder, darker, and tuning down the guitars another whole-step while making your lyrics even more incomprehensible -all for the sake of being different- is not exactly brilliant or interesting, and I can think of a few bands where that sort of philosophy has ruined perfectly good music.

Power metal has a decent range of quality and sound, but it's consistent, and the formula doesn't seemed to get messed with that much, which I see as a good thing.
