Shall we talk about heavy music?

Recommended Posts

Sounds as if Adler was forced out of the band due to creative differences. I loved the track "The Duke" and was hoping Lamb of God would include something similar on every album in the future.

Spirit Adrift is a band I keep seeing show up on lots of Metal Album of the Year lists. Reminds me a lot of the The Sword. Definite Ozzy/Priest/Maiden vibes with a heavier, doomy-ier sound, IMO. Ending riff that starts at 3:55 is my cup o' tea. 

Full album streaming here, have yet to skip a song: https://spiritadrift.bandcamp.com/

Interesting side-note: The frontman of Spirit Adrift is also the lead guitarist of death metal band, Gatecreeper, which also got a lot recognition this past year. He played all instruments except drums on the album. Pretty sure that's the lead singer of Gatecreeper playing bass in the video. 

Bro. I've been jamming their latest album and it's a total gem. Thanks man. It's the first new thing I've heard in a long time.

Poor sales so far -- Denver show Groupon $35 for lower level tier -- check your local city for similar deals

A very solid new album if you like Blackened Death Metal. Sounds almost exactly like Dissection back in the day. Tracks 3 (10:48) and 4 (15:55) are highlights for me.

$20 for lawn or 100 level in Atlanta. Yikes.

The venue is 3.4 miles from my house and I like In Flames and Megadeth but not Trivium or Lamb of God. Maybe I’ll go day of and see what I can find.

It's a weird bill.

I think it's a great bill.  In fact, Megadeth is probably my least favorite of the four.  Fight me.

Precisely my point -- if Megadeth is going to tour, they picked a strange set of openers. I'd say the low ticket sales confirm that but good news for you -- cheap tickets for a bill you like. No fight necessary. Enjoy it.

That's okay. You won't miss much -- Trivium and In Flames suck anyway 😉

Fight resumed!

Squarely in the Stoner Rock category, Spotify turned me on to this album from 2011:

 

 

If you like that genre the entire thing is worth a listen.  Quite a jam.  Never heard of them before.

I think I started a stoner rock thread. Not trying to thread police. Just saying. Man, I miss that scene. Working in the studio, putting out bands like that. Was a good time.

Awesome, I'll follow it.  Sorry if I misplaced here.

Give me some recommendations that would fit on a playlist with Protest the Hero, Destiny Potato, Destrage, Animals as Leaders. I think I broke Spotify because all it recommends me to add is techno songs.

Tons of tours on the horizon. Going to see Vio-lence March 20 in Raleigh, Possessed and Pestilence April 2 in Atlanta, and Sacred Reich/Sepultura later in April.

I don’t fuck around with extreme grind? (or whatever the fuck this is called), but the video is cracking my shit up. 
 

 

Best song off that album, imho:

And if you're ever trying to find what to classify a certain band, this is the only place you need to go: https://www.metal-archives.com/

In this case IA is considered technical deathcore.

After a lot of controversy Project Regeneration is nearly wrapped up featuring the remainder of Wayne Static's previously unreleased vocals. It'll be the first Static-X studio album in 11 years, it's hard to believe it's been six years since Wayne passed.

Some new Trivium as well :

Not sure how I like a skeleton singing to me, but ok then.  Trivium...I go back and forth on them.  I think I liked their earlier stuff before he blew out his vocal chords.  Understandable he can't go as hard anymore though.

Same. I prefer a melodic singer, so I appreciate that they mix it up, but it does seem a bit cheesy at times in their last few albums.

Meh. That’s pretty much what Octane sounds like now.

It’s been rap-rock week on Liquid Metal. Not sure which station is worse.

The timing is good at least. I haven't been in my car more than 15 minutes this week so I've only heard one Body Count song on LM.

They're still pumping out some good tunes, but I miss Adler's style on the drums.

Yeah, but if they are putting this quality out on their 8th studio album, I'm good with it.

Alex Bent has been the biggest upgrade to Trivium. Dude's a beast. Watched a "making the album" video for their last release and they really seemed to write the songs around him.  I'm a guitar player but find myself watching his drum tracks.

Ever since Travis Smith left Trivium they haven't been able to hold onto a drummer, I hope this one sticks around because he's pretty damn good.

 

Speaking of Trivium......

 

This thread could use some German metal.

I don't know what became of the bitch tits, what I do know is that Shaped by Fire was an incredible album.

I just saw that he remarried in prison and all I can say is well done Tim. Holy. Fucking.  Shit.
