  3. Dear Brothers, this topic is self-explanatory. Metal (and metal-related) bands (famous, obscure, unknown...) in your country/region/area that you feel like recommending to other fellow Metalheads! I'm Italian so here's my list divided per decades as concerns Italy, along with some personal anedoctes where possible 🤘 Hope you enjoy it! - 1960s-70s Jacula - Progressive Rock, Occult Rock (Italy - Milan?) Always been mysterious, their leader and founder Antonio Bartoccetti seems to have passed away recently, thus bringing with him the secret. They are indicated by many as the

  6. Man I thought it was bad here. Obviously it doesn't make me feel better to know other countries have it as bad as here or worse it just makes me angry and sad especially with the UK government whos strategy doesn't seem like it's taking covid serious enough like the Christmas day ease of restrictions which always seemed crazy to me and yeh my aunt pushed the rules she met up with 16 others and I don't think that was isolated example. I bet in the UK it happened loads. It's excellent news that you, your wife and son are through worst of it. I just hope I don't get it as I've got mild ast

  7. Nah, never got to see them live. I got to see Soulfly in 1999 and that was very cool. Arise is definitely my favourite Sepultura album. It was the first thing I'd heard of them. Before I heard it I was into stuff about as heavy as Metallica and Slayer and Arise just blew me away. It took it a step further and I loved it. It just sparked something in me. I still love that album to this day.

  8. My experience of testing here in the northeastern USA has been crappy. The free testing locations are always full - which means that some people are getting tested, which is great, but it seems impossible to get an appointment - and even if you have insurance, the paid locations make you pay out of pocket unless you get a referral from your doctor. So unless you have symptoms or you know for certain that you've been exposed, you can either pay anywhere from $80-$180 depending on the location, or you can suck it and wait. Despite all of our precautions, my wife and son and I got COVID shor

  17. In my experience, it seems like we are experiencing a shift in how we look at labels in the industry. With how easy it is to access distribution with services such as CDBaby, the only real thing that labels seem to have an advantage on these days is marketing. That being said, having done both, being on a label and releasing music independently, I have found that I end up getting a better return off of music that I released myself over what we released through a label.

  18. Been a metalhead since high school when I heard a friend play Metallica's One in music class, fell in love right away. Huge Sabbath fan, like a full bedroom dedicated to them kind of fan. I enjoy video games (PC & console), tinkering with computers and I'm a massive Star Wars fan. Told myself 2021 would be the year I'd finally learn guitar after 20 years of picking it up and putting down time and time again but it's still only January. First time using a forum like this and introducing myself, anxiety and all, but hope to meet some cool people. I'm on Facebook and Discord but in good ti

  20. Thanks! Same here. I mostly prefer their 80's records. I do enjoy later material but still...those classic riffs though That's easy. Into The Void. It sounds amazing live, had the privilege of seeing them in 2013. That was one for the bucket list

  21. Scotland - Alestorm and Gloryhammer. The first of which have about 6 albums and are in the Scottish Pirate Metal genre, or at least that's what I call them. They are definitely more understood from a Scottish citizen's point of view. But they are fun Have you heard Bulletbelt? A sort of thrashy death metal band. I'm sure they are from Australia. Rise Of The Banshee and Nine Centuries are great albums but are with a now former singer. Not too hot on their new lineup. I discovered them on the soundtrack to the indie movie Deathgasm

  22. Nice, glad you liked it. The debut is called "The Time Traveller's Dilemma" and the one that came out last year (also great) is "Four Dimensional Flesh". You might like their vocalist's other band Artificial Brain, too.

  23. Good to hear from you balor. Re the black metal teacher. Think hardest part would be finding a teacher in the first place.maybe online teacher. There's got to be legit ones. You might even get a black metal legend to teach as covid may mean there teaching as income, although not convinced abbath would be good teacher 😁, amazing guitarist yes but teacher 🤔Once you done few lessons why not. You could learn a few techniques even if you didn't go the whole way. Re your noise music Yeah I and a few others look forward to the day you put a link to your noise music on the site. Also

  24. I thought the Afterbirth album was awesome, yeah, they turned into a more interesting band over the years. Lots of brutal DM but also some cool melodic sections and sci fi atmosphere.

  25. Balor good to hear from you, ok well at least youve heard some of bathory all the way through. For some albums this is best way to listen to them. I rarely get the chance to listen to an album all the way through so am looking forward to opportunity's this year. Was listening to bathory all way through better experience than just individual tracks? Sounds like you got good at the painting models and war gaming stuff. What kind of models and war models were they? Was it Warhammer? Last year my best stuff was abstract art with the tie dye effect. I did some interesting stuff. Sounds h

  26. Yeah roots is not my favourite either. They have more of groove metal thing going on which didn't like so much. Still roots is a song I very much like. The album's before are better for me, guess I prefer the Thrashier music of albums schizophrenia, beaneath the ...., And arise, still like chaos ad but not quite as much chaos ad, it was my first proper metal album so I still value it for that. Haven't listened to much of Derrick green era. Sounds like you gave sepultura a go for most of there albums which is great. More than me and loads of others. 😏 I've listened to some stuff from green e

  28. Definitely the Max era for me, but Roots being the album of that era I've least enjoyed. I've only liked the last 2 albums since Derrick Green joined. In saying that, there's a few albums I haven't listened to since he joined so I might like a few more.

    Hi guys!

    I'm new to the Metal Forum and I'm excited to find out what's in store here! I have been listening to metal for about 2 years straight, and as I put in my bio, it all started with my emo phase. I am a part of Gen Z, a junior in hs, so I wasn't conscious of the metal and alternative music community for most of my life even though it's slipped in here and there. I was raised by classic "dad rock" and if you live in the Western PA region you may know of the classic rock stations? Yeah that's it right there. So some of the classic metal that's out there I've probably heard some songs from th

  37. Rice is great. I make it a lot with lunch and dinner. Even switched over to rice pasta a while back and we feel better because of it. My favorite thing to do is cook the grains in some coconut or avocado oil before adding the water, just until the grains start looking uniformly opaque and a little bit toasted. Gotta keep stirring so they don't burn. Then add the water and salt, cover and wait, etc.

  38. Purple Skies just released our debut album, "A Picture of Our Fate". Epic, melodic, doomy, groovy, heavy, riffy, emotive, and everywhere in between. Standard tuning, clean vocals, a bit old school but not overtly trying to be retro. Two singles off the album have a music video and lyric video: "The Messenger" music video: https://youtu.be/OPIMKQG9SIo "Cave of Fear" lyric video: https://youtu.be/aDmL7rw9otg The full album is available to listen to or purchase on Bandcamp: https://purpleskies.bandcamp.com/album/a-picture-of-our-fate Thanks for checking it out, guys!

  39. Immolation - I have been going through their discography a lot of late and although I can't fight the fact that some dips in form occur I still think that they are one of the most consistent performers over the past 30 years of death metal. They have a unique sound that is instantly identifiable and can drop in some really angular leads into any track at any point to add that sense of haunting atmosphere. I would go as far as saying that any death metal fan needs to own Dawn of Possession, Here In After and Close to a World Below with nods towards Failures for Gods and Unholy Cult. Gorg

  42. I suppose that this thread is a reflection on my earlier post about record labels. The most successful bands are signed to labels. I know however that the music industry is largely fools’ gold. Just ask all of those talent show winners turned one hit wonders. On the one hand, I am pleased that a lot of young bands are forging a career without record labels, but I am also aware that those bands are not well known, and may never be sufficiently well known to allow them to make serious money – ie the money they need to move out of their parental homes. And so I find myself reluct

  47. I don't consider myself a spiritual person. That being said I can't deny there's something about music (or at least the music I enjoy) that is truly special. Music has helped me get through some very challenging times in my life. Times where I felt isolated and beyond depressed music was my only means of relief. It was a means of escaping that crushing loneliness and despair. If I'm to be very honest were it not for the way music impacts me I almost certainly would have committed suicide. I suppose music is my spirituality. It is something I can turn to like others turn to their fa

  48. Agalloch - The Mantle: Agalloch are a dark/folk metal band from the USA, specializing in making very moody and serene sounding music. Their sound is akin to a mixture of Ulver's Bergtatt with bands like Opeth, Katatonia (Brave Murder Day), and Anathema (The Silent Enigma), though they definitely expand upon these influences. There are lots of acoustic guitars, clean vocal passages, and beautiful sections to contrast the harsh dark metal vocals and riffs. A very captivating band, and this is my favorite album of theirs. This is much more somber and serious sounding music than tha
