Often used to describe bands like Pantera and Exhorder. With mid-tempo riffs similar to those found in Thrash Metal and a tendency to focus more on groovy syncopation and heaviness than outright speed.

Druid Lord "Grotesque Offerings"
Tomb Mold "Manor of Infinite Forms"
Nocturnal Graves "Titan"
Carpe Noctem "Vitrun”
Svartidaudi “Revelations of the Red Sword” - this is the kind of album most of the media would have you believe Behemoth put out this year. There’s real, solid and varied structures present here. Post rock style skeletons fleshed out by dark and majestic extreme metal (and majestic without any of the Behemoth pomp). Enjoyed this.
Had a catch up with a friend (former client as it happens) yesterday, we hit a micro brewery and bar near where he lives and enjoyed a 9% porter that literally coated the soul.
Today will be spent adding further patches to my vest and trying to not let this damn wheezy chest get the better of me.
God gave rock n roll to you covered by Kiss in 1991 always makes my stomack turn for some reason or another. It's got too much of a missionaring feeling to it! However life is to short to go around feeling offended...unless you like feeling offended all the time. I simply do not listen to it.
