    Default In search of good metal...

    Hello,
    Anyone know of any cool metal that newish or somewhat undiscovered cause listening to my same albums is getting kinda dry. I like music like Machine Head, Trivium, As I Lay Dying, to stuff like Cradle of Filth. Any metal is welcome . So anyone have stuff they'd like to share?

    Lamb of God FTW
    All that Remains isn't bad. Gojira is my personal favorite band but is a little different from the ones you listed. Divinity is a pretty crazy local tech thrash band. I was big into Divine Heresy for awhile too. Mnemic is also pretty sweet - really heavy blend of Pantera, Meshuggah and Fear Factory.

    I find myself most into the melodic death metal and new thrash metal. Thanks for the contribution! I know most of these bands, looking from something fresh and new. And not stuff like linkin park....

    How about... the Faceless? Pretty sweet technical stuff. Veil of Maya is really good too, if you don't mind cool breakdowns. Neuraxis and Into Eternity are also really wicked bands.

    Just because they are not listed.

    In the Moment

    They openned for Rob Zombie and I found myself enthralled with their music, the bassist and drummer just seem to mesh well.

    Not sure where they fit in, but I like them.. not so bad for werkin' out to either...

    I've always found Tungsten to be a great metal. It's cool if you have it in a cool environment, as it adapts to the ambient temperature. It's not exactly "undiscovered", as it is the typical material used in light bulb filiments. However, it is indeed "newish" in it's recent application to popular jewelry. I think it would meet your requirements quite well.

    And yes, I AM a dork.

    Nice list there lad!

    You got a copy of Kalmah's For the Revolution yet? I don't think it's sold in N/A yet. It's badass though, back to the higher singing with a mix of the death growl. More COB style keys too.

    You guys should ALL check out Dissection. They are.. well were an amazing band. The bands lead Jon decided his life's destiny was fulfilled and sacrificed himself to the Comsic dark lords lol. Oh well.



    They also got a song about Maha Kali, the Hindu Goddess. Pretty neat stuff.

    The only Dissection worth listening to is The Somberlain and of course, Storm Of The Light's Bane. The band died with Jon's arrest years ago...
