Are there any good metal bands that sing or growl in German? It's a harsh sounding language as is, so I want to see how well it works in metal.

Fjoergyn is a band that does both. Also check out Der Herbst Ist Da

Anyone here been listening to the new Megadeth album? I've avoided them in the past because I can't stand Dave's voice but this album is kinda growing on me. Has good riffs and the lyrics aren't half bad.

If only Metallica were still going strong like this.

Everyone always talks about how Metallica is fading, how Dave Mustaine is annoying, and how Kerry King of Slayer is fat or whatever. How is Anthrax? I was thinking about checking out their discography, and don't really remember any discussion about them.

If anyone can suggest more bands to check out based on the handful I have I'd probably hug you IRL.

I don't know if I missed the recommendation fest, but I have the flu and am ranging between slightly and very feverish. However if it's not too late, I'd like to recommend Haggard for anyone who likes Epica, Nightwish, Leaves' Eyes or other symphonic metal.

These guys are based out of Germany and combine metal instrumentals and death growls with classical male and female vocals and instruments. My favorite song is probably Chapter 1: Tales of Ithira It's not as metal as the other song, but the bridge beginning at 5 min is really good, but the part at 5:52 is spine tingling.

And producers/managers/who-the-gently caress-ever writing an artist's/band's songs are not unheard of, even in metal. I knew the Drummer from Flotsam And Jetsam around the same time, he said their manager had been writing most of their material for a few years at that point....

For me, this is only ok if the outsider was once a member of the band, such as in the cases of Finntroll or Immortal. Otherwise, the band should man up and write its own music, at least the music it records.

My girlfriend informed me that linkin Park released a new music video which is "interactive" (it isn't) by accessing your facebook account and using your pictures. (http://lostintheecho.com/)

At the end, you can submit a message, inspired by what you saw, for all to see.
I submitted this:



Why are you talking about Linkin Park in the metal thread?

Seriously, though, who are you interviewing in Eluveitie? If it's Chrigel, ask how the group was put together, as well as where they learned Gaulish? I'm curious as to how the metal people found the "random folk instrument" people.

Finally, how researched is the Serb girl? I find it suspicious that her profile and video play up the war when it took place in Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia, and her part of Serbia wasn't affected at all (I don't count refugees as "affected", especially when the video is showing bombed out cities, which didn't happen in Vojvodina).

Eluveitie Interview:Merlin (drummer). I wanted to interview the singer... but the reply was, literally "here's Merlin's number".

The girl:
a. She's the friend of one of our staff members, who is also Serbian. I can get you the proper documents, whether you want to help or not, just to make sure it's clear that it isn't a scam.
b. The war footage was used, as far as I know, for illustrative purposes, giving a context to life in the Ex-Yu (it's no more than 5-10 seconds of that while video I think). The point was to show that living in Serbia, as in any ex-Yu republic, was terrible due to the constant violence in the region (anywhere between 10k and 20k Serbians died in the Civil war, where their families had to serve; and Later, in the NATO bombings of the early 2000's they lived, quite literally, in the bombed regions).

Thanks for the questions though; if anybody else had any doubts it's good that this is clarified.

Ask Merlin what it was like playing with Tyr in 2008 and whether he had to learn the songs and how easy is it for a drummer to pick up and play with another band?

As for the Serb, good to know she's legit. My family came from Serbia, so I can say for a fact that Serbia was not itself fought in or attacked during the 1989-1995 wars. And knowing my people, I really wouldn't be surprised to see war footage used in a scam (this is a joke). But since you know someone who knows her personally, I'll try to throw in some money.

I saw them in Denver. It was the first folk metal show I saw that didn't include Alestorm, so it was the best folk metal concert I've ever seen by 5000000%.

I'm a bit biased since I've liked all the bands involved since I first got into metal. I still kick myself for not being in country for the first Paganfest back in 2007.

Also, I've been working my way through the Slayer discography. I don't get all the hate for them, as they're my favorite of the Big 4 of Thrash so far. Maybe it's cause I like harder, more death-metal-y type stuff.

I love Lumsk, and am really sad that they haven't put out anything since Det Vilde Kor.

As for deep voices, one of the other bands in this year's Paganfest is one of my personal favorites: Heidevolk

Edit: We saw Metsatöll live when they came through and the really deep voice is their folk-instrumentalist, Varulven.
