Old thread: >>60138764
anyone else here a fan of long, slow songs? especially if it's in the context of a concept album
How's this line-up.
>reading scholarly paper on folk metal
>they use comments from metalarchives as primary sources
>they use facebook likes to equate popularity
>they use MetalSucks as source material
what the fuck
they're emotionally shallow and try to make up for that with a forced sense of "epicness" that feels fake and obnoxious. it's like they never build to anything properly, corset metal in general just skips straight to what would be the climax for a band with some subtlety. At the same time they (and again I'm generalizing to all corset metal because my complaints are with the whole genre) don't have anything that can be enjoyed on a visceral level like other genres that don't focus on structure. there's no catchy riffs or grooves, no atmosphere that evokes a particular feeling and the lyrics are usually moronic despite being one of the more prominent focuses of the music. Like it all you want these complaints are personal aesthetic preferences but everything about the genre annoys the shit out of me.
Yeah, the symphonics don't really communicate much other than a continual emphasis, like all they're saying is "guys this is fucking epic!!!"
if corsetcore bands had orchestral backing that was actually interesting and not completely hollow bombast with no melodic depth, it might be more interesting
but even then, attempts to fuse symphonic music and metal generally go way too far in one direction or the other
as for the lyrics, i've read epica lyrics and they're SO fucking poorly metered like holy shit they make the most clunky lines and choruses. unexpect get around this by having constant time sig changes so the jankiness of the vocal rhythms fits with everything else, but they're actually good and have riffs so i don't put them in the same category as epica.
Love Isis. While everybody loves Panopticon I think Wavering Radiant and Oceanic deserve just as much praise. I wholly prefer Oceanic. Too bad all the Isis members side projects are meh.
Congrats you're the biggest retard in this fucking thread and you know nothing about metal. Without Slipknot you wouldn't have most of the bands you listen to today. Just something from you to think about dumbass.
+Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Slayer, Gojira, Blind guardian, Satriani, Orphaned land maybe, Testament, Napalm Death, Abbath ( hopefully ), Katatonia, Moonsorrow, Enslaved, Refused, Converge, Down, Melvins, Earth, Discharge,
Most people here don't especially want to be edgy, they just like that music. I don't especially know how to prove you wrong except by not being an edgy teen and i'm neither edgy nor a teen - Or at least i hope i'm not.
Now currently this thread is far more closer to a room of edgy teens than usually
Le bait xd
>dat riff at 2:55
How much more top-atmo-death can you get bruh?
when will the slime uprising happen, meal? will it happen with disease or poison sprays?
Yeah I know what you mean, this album gets unnecessary shit, but thank fuck we got Illud for that now.
Also supposedly the filler tracks and their respective duration and order, has some sort of meaning according to Trey. Either way I agree they tend to fuck with the pacing of the album, but the actual songs really are amazing.
That's everybody's line since Illud got released. That and "I hope the next album MA does with the letter 'J' will be named 'Just Joking" xD :P lmfao".
We got a whole bunch of Meme Angel lines, take your pick.
>Circle of Dead Children
You realize that whether you like BTBAM or not, Circle of Dead Children are not similar in ANY way, shape or form...right?
>mfw you don't realize this
I love tokdoff m8, I think dm is one of the few genres that hasn't completely shit the bed yet. There's nowhere near the same rate of absolute classics as that period anymore, is all I'm saying.
Can someone please tell me why people even listen to metal? I believe, and this is just my opinion, that if you listen to metal your brain hasn't developed past the age of 13. Metal is just for manchildren.
I feel that this is true, but only if you EXCLUSIVELY LISTEN TO METAL. I've been around people who literally do nothing but listen to this genre, and they're the worst people I've ever had the displeasure of associating with.
>randomly find this album through YouTube
>the cover looks like some standard indie rock or ambient
>it's actually pretty sweet prog metal
>someone praising Iron Maiden
>"Never did care for them. Felt they sounded too same-y."
>laughed at, mocked, told "U DON NO REEL METUL!!" etc
Can't decide what fanbase is worse between Slayer and Iron Maiden now.
Seriously though, what is the point of posting obvious baits like this?
Am i metabaited where the goal is to make me feel angry towards how the bait is poorly executed? How many layers of irony are you on?
Classical and jazz are great though
you must've been talking to the kind of people that have only ever heard Hallowed and 2 Minutes and then wear their Trooper shirts they got at hot topic as a BOGO with their bring me the horizon shirt
this is what we call a "poser"
new Revenge is streaming in complete, it's good
ODD FELLOWS REST
SONIC EXCESS IN ITS PUREST FORM
>tfw absolutely BTFO by this song
literally cant stop listening to this
anybody has any simillar recs?
Don't want to turn this into a /v/ discussion or anything, but really enjoying old doom-style shooter wads right now while listening to metal, anyone else like this stuff? Playing through heretic right now, Haven't played any vidya in 2 years tb h
Try Amber Sea, another French band.
Novelists are good tho I'm really looking forward to their debut album
no fucking kidding
Vinushka live was just electrifying. too bad about people cheering over the part with the flute :( Also I'm really glad they played Tousei, my second-fav song off Arche.
why would my opinion change if I knew whose band it was?
>has been in a symphonic black metal band in the past
>implying symphonic black has a possibility of being good
Can I get blackened deathcore recs?
I listened to a vastum album once. It sounded like it was going to be good for about 15 seconds then turned into gay caverncore
>no need for riffs lads, these saps will lap up anything with enough reverb
>deathcore = metalcore with elements of melodic death metal
that's not right at all, what deathcore bands out there have the same melodic tendencies as any gothenburg melodeath band? or any melodeath band really
>metalcore with elements of melodic death metal
so... killswitch engage and protest the hero are deathcore?
deathcore generally has brutal death elements if anything, similar pig squeal vocals and atonal tremolo riffs.
eh i don't know hxc that well but i thought madball were a big inspiration for beatdown. hatebreed is a better example
Hatebreed + Cryptopsy is how I'd describe deathcore at its most basic.
honestly, stay not knowing hardcore
the history is interesting if you get really into it, but honestly even 'the greats' kinda suck.
getting into hardcore was one of the most pointless time sinks ever. I could've spent all of that time learning about decent music not made by fucking man children who still refer to each other as 'kids' in their 30s and on.
drumming and semi-melodic riffing
i don't follow the scene very closely desu, i'm mostly interested in emoviolence stuff like la quiete and ampere rather than post-rock screamo and it seems most new screamo is post-rock based.
there's plenty of 2015 screamo that doesn't have any post-rock elements
this is probably my number 1 screamo release of 2015
the new caust is good as fuck as well
Yeah, although if we're going to cite pioneering post-hardcore bands Hopesfall were probably a big spearheader on bands that took the emo/post-hardcore influence and added some more "metallish" moshy riffs and the RAAAUGHHHH+clean vox combo
Metalcore is very weird in the sense that there's a lot of camps of it. There's the metalcore camp that went the BFMV Trivum KSE route inspired by melodeath and there's the camp like Hopesfall, Poison The Well and shit that are more inspired by post-hardcore. And then there's the dissonant mathcore stuff like Norma Jean that was probably inspired by screamo.
And yet people still say "metalcore" by itself like it means anything lmao.
>And yet people still say "metalcore" by itself like it means anything lmao.
This is why I crusade against people generalizing the genre, even though I seem like an autistic metalcore defender when doing it. I guess people assume the entire genre (barring converge, botch, btbam, le list goes on) is stuff like Pierce the Veil, Asking Alexandria, and Emmure. The reality is it's a really diverse genre that's hard to generalize.
>implying you're >>60185743
nah, botch is a better band than converge.
so is daughters
