^^^^ While I may not have the largest background in crust punk, I think an exception could be made since crust and grindcore are so closely linked together these days. As mentioned above, you've got bands like Rotten Sound, Mumakil, and Trap Them really doing it right by blending the two elements together. Even though the grindcore is still more prevalent in their music, you can't deny that there are quite a few passages that follows the crust formula, as well. It seems that a lot of modern bands are really beginning to incorporate the two styles and continue to blur the lines between them. Actually, now that I think about it, crust isn't metal. But, that isn't to say that there aren't metal bands that incorporate crust into their music, so I guess you could talk about crust-infused grind and so-forth in this thread.

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

There have been some good albums put out this year, but none that would be considered "great" and be contender for Album of the Year or whatever arbitrary poo poo people argue about. Not to mention, those bands are the best you can offer when trying to defend this year? You are doing it wrong. Very, very wrong.

The only album that could have been contender for Album of the Year was the latest Napalm Death that was slated for this coming October, but alas, it was pushed back to February '12, instead.

Now, to bring it back to good music for a second, there was a five-way split released this year under the name of "Split Torso Trauma" and it featured two tracks each by Antropofagus, Prion, Mass Infection, Putridity, and Infected Flesh. It is definitely for fans of the usual Unique Leader-styled brutal death metal bands and is quite enjoyable. I'd say Antropofagus, Putridity, and Prion are my favorite portions of the split.

To make this post not entirely worthless, I listened to Rotten Sound's Cursed about five times last week. Came out half a year ago, but the album rips.

I would also like to recommend that you check out "Darker Handcraft" by Trap Them. That album is just pissed off from beginning to end, as long as you like a bit of d-beat mixed in with your grindcore/crust.

Alright, Misfits don't count, whatever. They're only the band that was a huge influence on Metallica, but who cares? And the newer Misfits stuff is even better than their old stuff.

What the hell does this have to do with the Misfits not being metal? No need to get all butthurt about it because they don't fit in this thread. Nobody is taking away what the Misfits have contributed to music as a whole. Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf are huge inspirations to lots of metal musicians, but guess what? They aren't metal. Am I taking away their achievements to the world of music? Hell no. They are incredibly talented individuals and enjoyable to listen to. They just aren't metal.

Well, holy poo poo, I guess it's our fault for discussing music that the majority of posters in this and previous threads listen to and enjoy rather than rehashing the same bands (even if they're good) over and over again. If you can't deal with the harsh vocals that a lot of these bands that we're discussing at the moment have, then bow out and don't whine about it.

I just got into metal about a year ago, and my favorite bands are Metallica, Anthrax, Sonata Arctica, Iron Maiden, a7x, Ozzy, Buckethead, and Dethklok (just because it's funny). What else might I like / got any good recommendations for me?

Definitely check out Judas Priest as they basically fit every band you listed. Rob Halford is a God, and the mans pipes are still just as awesome as they were decades ago. Nuclear Assault would work perfectly with your mention of Anthrax, too; "Handle With Care" is my favorite album of theirs. For Dethklok recommendations, I would definitely say check out At the Gates, Amon Amarth, The Crown, Satariel, Canopy, Vehemence, and a lot of other melodic death metal bands that I'm missing off of the top of my head.

For content, I thought Vomitory's video for "Regorge In The Morgue" was pretty campy, but awesome.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXa5gzUiNUU

I also just noticed that four years ago today Wayne Knupp (ex-Devourment, Relentless Beatings) died from multiple organ failure and he was only 31. Here's a lovely-sounding and the last recorded video of Wayne performing with Devourment at CIMF '07.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWv5O_sn4Q0

It is pretty hard to deny that when "1.3.8." was released everybody knew that Wayne was a nasty vocalist, and that album has inspired tons of bands. His presence alone makes the album worthwhile. He was also one of the nicest dudes you could ever meet, and was stoked every time some guy said he liked the poo poo he has been involved with. R.I.P. buddy.

Motorhead, loving A sweet as long as they get as long a set as megadeth.

but what the gently caress is this lacuna coil/volbeat crap as the other half of the show. I guess it would be a good situation if the highschoolers there for LC and Volbeat took off once the old men took the stage, but gently caress I don't want to pay for a ticket if I'm going to skip half of the bill. Nor should people get the idea those two bands are on par with megadeth and motorhead.

The track that Mark "Barney" Greenway of Napalm Death did for Volbeat was pretty sweet. Other than that, all their music is pretty boring.

I think it seems that all the bands that have already done Gigantour are going to keep doing, as I doubt they can find any talented bands that want to be a part of it. Well, besides Motorhead, but come on, that's a loving fluke.

So stoked to see them on Friday, with Jungle Rot and Gigan as support.

vvvvv I'll admit that it doesn't hold up to my usual standards for Immolation, but I dug the track. As for simplistic breakdowns like that, they have done it in the past and it hasn't affected the songs negatively, and I didn't think it did in this track, either. They went for a more straight-forward style, but the Immolation riffing was certainly there.

Where the gently caress have you been this past year or so?

Having just watched Gigan absolutely destroy last night, I'd say they win. Gojira is pretty sweet, too. But until I see them live, Gigan is the champion.

I went and saw the Gigan, Jungle Rot, and Immolation tour last night and god drat was that a fun show. Every band that showed up (including the local support) was awesome and spot-on. I think Gigan really stole the show, as they played about four songs back-to-back simultaneously and just went nuts. Plus they came out with this electromagnetic antenna that would make this flying saucer-like squeeling noise whenever something would come within range of it and incorporated that and a sampler into their set. It was quite something to behold.

If you get a chance to see Gigan or Immolation, seriously, go see them. Plus you get three free EPs from Immolation, Wormrot and Enslaved. Can't go wrong with that.

Every single Metal scene ever has been largely fueled by competition. That's how the Slayers, Morbid Angels, Darkthrones, etc all became the trend setters in their eras and genres. They rose above their peers by making better music and being chosen by their scenes and the traders. That's why Slayer became the legends and Attitude Adjustment didn't. It's only natural to measure yourself up against others and try to exceed them, especially in a group setting filled with teenaged and young adult males.

You are aware that there are bands who do not care about any type of commercial success or being trend setters, right? Not everything has to be in the context of "we're better" or "you're worse". To me, that takes away the entire spirit of heavy metal as a whole, anyway. It was meant to be a rebellion against the mainstream, especially grindcore with how it has taken a stance with it being "anti-music" in some respects.

Not everything needs to be a competition. Can't a group of people get together and play some tunes with another group of people who do the same thing and not have to say "we're better than you"? The answer is yes. Will you see those bands on Headbangers Ball and on the cover of Revolver? No.

Also, does anybody have a clue why iTunes is recommending Disturbed to me because I like Exhumed? Those two aren't even comparable other than they both play instruments and can breathe.

Why the gently caress did I think Barney was almost fifty? I must be confusing him with someone else. As amazing as Napalm Death are, it is even more amazing that it's just been the same core group of guys since the mid-90s creating awesome songs one after another.

FFS. I've always enjoyed the fact these threads never had an OP of "goon recommended" lists because all lists to do with metal (including the one being made) are always composed of absolute poo poo. You are never, ever in a million years going to be able to make people even agree on what "entry-level" metal is.

Some of you appear to think that it should be things people "might like when new to the genre" - why should you introduce someone via a band you will later tell them are actually crap? The lists are laughable at best.

Nobody should be making anything unless they actually know something about the genres, and their history. Which rules out any cretin that thinks, for example, Norway is the epicentre of black metal.

It is especially useless when trying to provide "labels" to specific bands, particularly those that we know have contributed very much in terms of musical influence to their respective sub-genres as a whole.

Maybe it's just me, but I have found it is so much better to discover and correctly label bands on your own, that way you do not already have some idiotic pre-conceived notion of an album being something that it absolutely isn't. Sure, maybe give a couple very general bands to start off with, but nothing more than that, otherwise we begin to attach our own dumb subjective thoughts to anything we recommend.

Really, the world of heavy metal is so loving large that it feels like an absolute waste being told what you should like. Go explore on your own, it is ridiculously fun.

Gr31lly pretty much nailed it all, but to add another band who just has that feel to them would be Funebrarum. The only difference here is that they have a little more doom and slower structured death metal mixed in with that chainsaw buzz.

Their entire discography is pretty stellar, but if you're looking for more fast-paced material like the song I linked, then check out their album "The Sleep Of Morbid Dreams". "Beneath The Columns Of Abandoned Gods" is a great album, but it might be a bit slower than what you're looking for. The split Funebrarum did with Interment is also pretty great on both sides, so definitely check that out if you can.

Another band would be Putrevore, which has Rogga Johansson on guitar and bass and Dave Rotten from Avulsed on vocals. Their album "Morphed From Deadbreath" absolutely crushes in a simplistic Swedish death metal style.

Just get really high and listen to every record Deicide made before the Hoffman brothers left, and hopefully you'll have an awesome hallucination of seeing the classic line-up "live".

Deicide since 2004 have pretty much been unbearable.

But, I have hope that Amon is going to at least go back to the mid-to-late '90s era of Deicide. They just released a single titled "Among Us" last month and while it may not be exactly what I was hoping for, it is definitely a step in the right direction compared to what Deicide has been pumping out for the past few albums. It seems like a decent mixture of Vital Remains, Angelcorpse, and Deicide.

2011 has been a pretty good year for death metal and grindcore. Some of my favorite albums have been from Abnormity, Vallenfyre, Analdicktion, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Vicious Abortion, Rotten Sound, Maruta, Noisear, Indecent Excision, Vomitory, Condemned, Carnivorous Voracity, Krisiun, Bestial Inquisitor, and Brutal Truth. Here's to hoping that Napalm Death, Terrorizer, and Umbral Torturer keep the trend going in the new year.

However, I couldn't fine a good thrash album this year. By all accounts I should be a Warbringer fan, but all their material has just left me flaccid. Megadeth and Anthrax put out boring albums, which was expected. Are there any unknown thrash acts I may be overlooking who put out a quality release this year? I want Dark Angel to make another "Darkness Descends", god damnit!

The only thing that still really bums me out is that Seth Putnam is dead and Morbid Angel continues to make new music.

I'm a little surprised that nobody is mentioning Origin's Entity, which is probably the only 2011 release I consistently go back to (I guess Symphony X was pretty good too). Sure, they didn't develop their sound much over Antithesis, but it's infinitely more enjoyable than the majority of technical death metal out there.

I'm pretty sure I listed this earlier (if not then I'm an idiot), but yeah, it was an incredible album, especially it was only recorded with Paul Ryan, Mike Flores and John Longstreth. There's tons of amazing vocal layering, and even hearing (I assume) Mike Flores performing guttural back-ups just really floored me because I never expected to hear those in an Origin song. Both Paul and Mike have really ramped up their technical prowess and it still blows me away.
