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.
Welcome, congratulations on your upcoming child. I'm not a huge fan of most of the bands you mentioned, but Metallica, Pantera, and Amorphis were really important to me when I was a kid. Hope you enjoy the place.
Its been a long time since I have been on a metal forum. A very long time.
A few things about me: I'm from WV. I've been a metal head since age 13. I'll be 33 late next month. I'm married, expecting my first child (a daughter) in April.
I've been to many shows, festivals, and have met many bands and members of bands I love over the years. I have a ton of stories.
Metallica is my all time favorite band. Some of my other favorites are Lamb of God, Amon Amarth, Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Becoming The Archetype, The Showdown, Megadeth, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Byzantine (WV's own), Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Horde, Arkona, Amorphis, and Mechina (killer studio band out of Chicago.)
I'm a man of many interests. I don't drink, smoke, or do any drugs and I do the best I can to stay healthy. I try my best not to be judgemental and just listen to others before I speak my mind.
I look forward to getting to know you all.
