Nothing’s up my ass and it’s not a cry for help you two; I’m just tired of seeing posts where someone asks if anyone knows of any good bands. Is it so hard to do the looking and listening for yourself?!

Of course not. You won’t believe how much checking out I’ve done myself: I dare say the number of albums I’ve heard ranks in the thousands.

My guess is, Wejo, that you’ve already formed your own opinion of the band, but you’re not sure if you like them enough. If that’s the case, then keep listening; If they grow on you, awesome man, if not, then fuck ‘em and move on to the next interesting band, simple as that! I have never let someone elses opinions affect my decision on whether to listen to a new band or not. Only you can truly know if they’re worth listenint to or not, ya’ know

Yes, I’ve heard the band before. Several times already, I think. Thing is, those few times where a long time ago, tastes change, memory gets hazy et cetera.

As I said in my above post, try internet radio or any of the above methods to check out the band. Go and download a torrent and if you don’t like them enough, just delete ‘em. You know what you like and don’t like better than anyone else, don’t bother asking someone else, that’s my point here.

I get your point. I, however, completely disagree with me. I don’t ask those questions so I know what to think of bands, so I know what to say to ‘act cool’. I ask those things because I actually have a busy life, a ton of bands to check out, and I often buy stuff just because people recommend them to me. That’s how my network works, you know? Of course I don’t buy stuff because I see people mentioning it on this shitty site, but I do when I see bands mentioned on good metal forums. Or when friends talk about them.

Some of my favourite bands were recommendations by people that have similar taste, some of my favourite bands were my own discovery. And I pass those on.

Yes.

What are all your opinions on Capricorns? I’ve seen their name quite a few times already and was wondering if I should pick up some of their stuff.

I’m going to Hellfest. Fuck yeah.

I’ve always hated Technical Death metal. Too much wankery. =D I’ll search for my dissonance in Deathspell Omega and a couple of improv-noise acts, thank you very much. ;)

hurrah, another flame war. all sludge/doomsters who are looking for their genre with post-rockish influences need to check out Eibon’s debut ep. Awesome stuff.

Good for him.

Ok, not really, but what’s here to discuss? Are we all going to circle jerk on how sympathic and caring we all are?

Yes, having kids can cause stress, yes, there are some psychos in this world, yes, circles are round for a reason.

I love sloppiness in Thrash and sometimes in my Black metal as well. Goes pretty well with some old-school Death metal too.

In general: old-school extreme metal + sloppiness + garage-y production => awesomeness ensues.

Darkruler, you generalize most of all in this forum. ‘Everyone’ flames Christianity, ‘all’ scientists think they have the advantage over religious people, etc.

See? Exactly what I’m talking about a couple of posts up.

Anyway, I don’t really have any favourite guitarist/vocalist/whatever. Often I don’t even know the name of the musician.

If you’d point a gun to my head though, I’d probably go for Attila Csihar (Mayhem), M. Dragynfly (The Angelic Process) and perhaps Alexander von Meinenwald. I really don’t know, don’t care either.

you know what evokes my hate for bands such as Children Of Bodom, As I Lay Dying, Slipknot, Dragonforce and the likes?

the fact that always, always when you’re having a good conversation or band-exchange on, say, french Black metal, someone pops in and starts discussing Children Of Bodom. And then ten people feel the need to jump on that, flamewars start etc etc etc etc. Nothing against the average CoB fan, but come one, how many topics are there here on that band? why not leave us alone and let us have our own little corner where we can talk about the obscure metal bands we like.

and then there’s the usual “i listen to metal but im not a metalhead because im not that stupid” blah blah blah. I’m no metalhead either. I dress ‘normal’, clothes are ‘normal’, everything is normal. thing is, nobody cares about my life story. nobody should.

i want to hear some good bands. anybody into Acid Witch? they just released a fantasic trippy/drugged out deathy Doom album with tongue-in-cheek gore theme. its called “Witchtanic Hellucinations”, check it out.

3dd656, dude, I love you.

HJARNIDAUDI is the best band ever. Period. Pain:Noise:March is a genius album and imo the best of all time (and I’ve heard 1000+, if not 2000+).

Psyko:Stare:Void is going to be released next month and I’m fucking PSYCHED about it. I’m in occasional good contact with the sole project member, and he promised me an interview which will be very long and indepth, I’ll hook you up with a link if you’re interested.

Also, review here, thought you may find that interesting: http://www.metalstorm.ee/pub/review.php?review_id=5034

DarthNader, you’re a dick.

On the subject of French Black metal, I’m a fan of Mortifera, Diapsiquir, Deathspell Omega, Alcest.

Check out Mortifera for melancholic Black metal, Diapsiquir for twisted psycho Black metal, Deathspell Omega for high testosterone dissonant Black metal and Alcest for shoegazy-black metal-esque something something.

Blut Aus Nord is massively overrated.

that’s most likely referring to metalcore & grindcore, and not hardcore (if you dont get it: metalcore and grindcore are metal, hardcore’s not).

That makes no sense and is a complete double standard. Just because the two have more metal influences that makes them metal? I think not.

I think yes. Of course having more metal influences makes you more metal than something without any metal influences.

Metalcore and grindcore are partially metal, partially ‘other’, hardcore is not. (perhaps modern hardcore, wouldnt know about that).

I say we all just shut the hell up about these stupid discussions. Let us talk French Black metal. Who else thinks this scene is one of the most interesting and varied in Black metal nowadays.
