    I just listened to Inquisition in a co-worker's car and they sounded pretty good. I only heard one song and I don't remember the name but I'm gonna give them a whirl tonight.

    I just came across perhaps the most INTERESTING metal band... because the only metal is the drumkit. It's an a capella group that does metal songs o_O I find it interesting because most a capella stuff is either jazz or choral, but these guys bring a drum into it, have one baritone, two tenors, an alto-tenor and an alto-soprano and, in my own opinion (you may form your own), they actually pull it off decently.

    I warn, tho, that it may not be to everyone's liking, but I appreciate the skill it takes to keep 5 strong voices in tune. I'm just posting it because I thought it was pretty cool

    Van Canto - The Mission


    Van Canto - Quest For Roar


    Van Canto - The Bard Song (Blind Guardian cover, for those that have heard of Blind Guardian)


    And for those wanting an older school metal feel:

    Van Canto - Fear of the Dark (Iron Maiden cover. And the "guitar" is one of the tenors with his voice modulated to be distorted like that)

    I'm not sure how I feel.

    No denying their talent, singing and songwriting. I just can't take it seriously. This is something I do with my friends in a packed car.

    RUN DUN DUNDUN DUNDUN DUNDOOOOO

    EDIT: K, fuck, I'm enjoying Fear of the Dark way too much. Hahaha.

    Yeah, exactly... the first time you listen, you're like "hey, that's funny..." then by the third listen, you're bobbing your head to the beat and humming along before you even realize it. Like I said.... they somehow pull it off o_O and do it well

    New album coming in a month :O Looking forward to some more epic metal/power metal to add to my collection XD (and those that hear a little Scorpions in this track, Klaus Meine (lead singer of the Scorpions) is the guest vocalist)



    And for those that have never heard of em:

    (I realize it's not EXACTLY metal, more hard rock, but it does have a good metal feel to it )

    So, moar recommendations!

    Can't remember all that was in this thread from before, but right now I'm enjoying;

    Black Sun Aeon - Darkness Walks Beside Me
    Rotting Christ - AEALO
    Burst - Lazarus Bird (this came out in late 2008, I still love listening to it, highly recommend you give a go)
    Be'lakor - Stone's Reach

    Blaze Bayley's newer stuff (the last 2 or 3 albums) have actually been pretty good.


    Sorry, no youtube videos. I'm at work.

    Yep, I listened to it and what a pleasant surprise - it sounds really good! I wasn't too crazy about the last two albums (sounded too monotone and too boring I thought). The new album finds them changing things up, even doing awesome twin guitar melodies of the old-school on The Alchemist (my favorite song on the new album).

    Speaking of new albums, the new 3 Inches of Blood album has been out for a while, but I just got it now. Definitely kick-ass, reminiscent of Advance And Vanquish (I didn't like Fire Up The Blade that much).

    Both albums worth checking out.

    Their new single new album is coming out soon.



    Not sure if you classify Bullet for My Valentine as "metal" but I'm pumped their finally coming back. Was choked that they didn't come with Avenge and Atreyu a couple years back.

    Hrmmm... not "blown away" with that Disturbed track... when I first heard Ten Thousand Fists years ago, I was all "\m/ FUCK YEAH \m/"

    Getting the new Maiden album now, tho.... last couple were kinda meh, but if they really have gone back to proper Maiden sounds, should be fucking epic \m/

    EDIT: Listening to the new Maiden now... El Dorado had a nice old school IM sound \m/

    Bump

    Been listening to a LOT of Sabaton lately. Awesome war metal and some other, lighter, and at times fun stuff.

    (War metal) Primo Victoria (just listen to the lyrics)


    One of the lighter, fun ones: Metal Machine. See how many tributes to other songs/bands you can figure out (they help you some in the vid XD)

    Hahaha, nice.

    I love Sabaton. They're some nice cheesy power metal. Primo Victoria used to be my favourite track by them, but now it's Ghost Division. Awesome shit nonetheless...


    I don't normally care for making new year's resolurion, but this year I promised myself to never listen to any doom metal bands no matter how good the review sounds. I fucking can't stand that shit.

    I don't have my current play list in front of me, so I am unable to make any recommendations.

    Re-release by Tarot of their original release track (their very first), Wings of Darkness. Marco Hietala still has the best damned voice in metal What is it with Finland and epically good metal? Must be something in the water or the fact they're full on mentals XD

    Not bad, but older Sepultura is the shit. After Arise I wasnt too crazy for their stuff.







    And from their best album ever "Arise"





    Check out some Cavalera Conspiracy too if you havent. Just released a new album.

    Saw these guys live last month - awesome show! Norwegian rock actually sung in Norwegian, which is pretty uncommon in Scandanavia.
