Oh and if anyone wants an album that's modern, but very much heavy/speed/power metal then look no further than the new Portrait.

Most people will batter on about the King Diamond/Mercyful Fate influences, but this new album really smacks more of Iron Maiden and NWOBHM in general as well as 80s power/speed to me.
The really remarkable thing is that there's a good band on Metal Blade that doesn't have Harry Conklin in it.

Unheil sings in German, and I think Jack Slater might have some German songs in there. I second Bethlehem. Checked them out because they're on MDF, and holy poo poo.

I mainly listen to Arkona, if that helps any.

Menhir/Odroerir, Pagan Reign, Korpiklaani, Trollfest (altho they are all over the place), umm, I am not at home right now but others will have some suggestions too.

EDIT: Tverd is also good, they are on my iPhone now, I totally forgot about them. They are the remnants of Pagan Reign.

Nokturnal Mortum's last album, The Voice of Steel, is probably one of my favorite folk metal albums. Here's the title track.

Seconding the Pagan Reign recommendation, Ancient Fortress/Tverd is a really great album. Check this song out.

I'm both nervous and pretty excited to hear how the Lou Reed/Metallica album "Lulu" turns out. My immediate fear was that Metallica would try to scale back and be more hard-rocky and we'd end up with another Load, but they seem really excited about it. Since it seems like they're almost embarrassed to remember their Load / Reload / St. Anger days (they pretty much never play any of those songs live), I have to hope it'll be metal.

If nothing else, it's a really interesting concept.

Wanting Metallica to come out with a good album is like wanting hook back up with an ex that's been cheating on you for years. For 20 long years they've put out nothing but garbage. Even if they did come out with something "good", who cares about those poo poo bags? There are plenty more metal fish in the sea.

The only other folk metal band I listen to with female vocals is Lumsk, check their album Troll. Their album Det Kilde Vor (esp the track Lad Spille Med Vaar Over Jorden) is good too, but not very metal. Asmegin's first album also has occasional female vocals.

Other than that, Metsatoll, Korpiklaani's first 2 or 3 albums, Kroda's first 2 albums, Trollfest (Korpiklaani worship, kinda corny)

edit: I can't believe I forgot to mention Leprechaun. Their demo The Ultimate Dance is classic all the way through and the track Rusalka has female vocals too.

Sorry that not everyone loves Black Sabbath, bro.

And no good albums of the year? Protest the Hero, Leprous, And So I Watch You From Afar, Sylosis, and Unearth have all put out sweet albums, and we still get to look forward to new stuff from Opeth, Mastodon, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Machine Head (gently caress you), plus whatever other more underground bands these threads introduce us to. 2011 has been my favorite year for metal in a long time, and Cynic's probably gonna drop something in early 2012.


BSchlang posted:

If you stick with metal, you'll probably start liking the more brutal stuff. Three years ago I thought death metal sounded awful, but I got really into Opeth for their proggier parts, just sort of tolerating the growls and stuff, but after a while I started to appreciate what it did for the music. Now I play Cryptopsy while I'm eating my breakfast. It just takes a while to overcome your initial reaction and be able to break it apart. It's a gradual transition for sure, though.

Kalevala is a Russian band.

Confusion might come in when Kalevala is also Finland's national poem and also a city in Karelia which was once owned by Finland, now occupied/owned by Russians.

Sol Niger Within is one of the best metal albums I know of. It's Fredrik Thordendal's (Meshuggah guitarist) solo project of sorts. It's not exactly brand new, and I don't know if its existence is common knowledge, but I thought I'd share it with those unfortunate enough to never have heard this brilliant album! You can hear the whole drat thing on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6kXLkJA6g0, so please do so.

That would be Morgan Ågren, probably my favourite drummer in existence. He's in a great prog band called Kaipa, but my favourite stuff of his is by his band Mats/Morgan Band. And yeah, he played on Sol Niger Within, which is also brilliant.

He's also done some stuff with Zappa plays Zappa.

I'd post my last.fm thing, but a lot of it's dictated by basically the bands that I've listened to the longest, so there's a disproportionate amount of Opeth, Enslaved and Katatonia compared to everything else, even though I'm not that into any of them these days.

I think it's probably a random assortment of songs off Smash, Ignition, and their self-titled, mostly for nostalgia. When I was 12, I used to spend most of my free time playing The Offspring (and sometimes Metallica) on my cheap guitar, thinking I was hot poo poo. Memories...

Here's my all-time chart, and I've been a member since 2006 (I listened to David Cross routines while I did homework, and I graduated college in '09 -- I can't really explain the mc chris though):



Fun fact: My top overall tracks contains three Megadeth songs. My top tracks from the last 12 months contains 14 (and the one straggler is a Metallica song).

Another fun fact: I am so stoked for the Big Four show that I had a dream about it.

Yeah same here. My Last 12 Months chart is pretty different from my Overall chart. Gonna post anyway though because I may have claim to the worst overall chart of any poster in the thread. This is since March of 2005.



Anyway I saw Kamelot in Toronto last night. Anyone who is wondering about how they are with Fabio probably won't be disappointed, he fits great with the band.

Also based on the interaction he had with the crowd before their set started, I think the Alestorm frontman might be a little weirded out by the band's fanbase.

But if I had to guess, my all time top scrobble would be Acid Bath or Agents of Oblivion.
