  1. Our Raw Heart is awesome! I can't stop listening to it. Fantastic stuff. Yes, I'm afraid I'll have to book a ticket to Sweden to be able to see the mighty Bullet! I just bought my ticket to see Crowbar next month, though. They're one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time, and this will be the second time I've seen them live. Incredibly heavy show! I have all 12 of their albums. If you're not familiar with them, they play a dirty, heavy style of groove-sludge. Awesome stuff!
  2. I have heard some of YOB and really like their stuff! I haven't heard that album, though, so I'll be checking it out shortly. Unfortunately, I've never gotten to see Bullet play live. I live in the States, and I'm not sure how often those guys tour over here. I'm sure they tour all around their home country of Sweden, but if they ever come over to the States, I'll be right there on the front row! Thanks for the heads-up on YOB. I'm getting ready to listen to it now!
  3. Glad you liked Bullet! They're certainly one of my top 10 bands of all time. Udo Dirkschneider is a classic metal vocalist - originally in Accept and now in his own band called U.D.O. His voice is very unique. I'll definitely have to check out Mispyrming! If it's rock 'n' roll meets metal, it's welcome in my collection. Yes, I've certainly bought an album based on a few tracks, only to find out that those were the only tracks I could get into. It's such a bummer! I'm currently on a thrash kick - "M-16" by Sodom at the moment!
  4. Yep, exactly the same for me! Groove is my favorite metal subgenre, followed by thrash and traditional heavy metal. Lately, I've been rocking out to Bullet - a Swedish classic-sounding metal band. They've been around since 2006, but their music sounds like it's from the 80's. Killer stuff. Great guitar work and perfect vocals for the style. The singer sounds like a mix of Brian Johnson and Udo, if you can picture that. The band is criminally underrated. If you get a chance, try their 2011 album "Highway Pirates". My favorite Bullet album, and it's a blast to listen to. Happy listening!
  5. Yeah man! I enjoy deathcore, although I tend to listen to it in waves. The new Lorna Shore album will be released later this year in October, and I'll be sure to snag it as soon as it's available. I wish I could play along with them! But no, I don't play any instruments. I just use the word "jamming" to mean that I rock out to the music in my car or through my headphones. Very cool! I'll check out Sisyphean this evening. I don't like black metal as much, but if it's more of the atmospheric variety, I do enjoy it a lot more. Thanks for the recommendation!
  6. Septicflesh - "Modern Primitive" (album) Brand new album just released yesterday from these Greek symphonic death metal veterans. Loving it so far!
  7. Anvil - "Pounding the Pavement" (album)
  8. Very cool! I've been blasting a lot of deathcore lately. Lorna Shore just released their newest song yesterday, and I've been playing it repeatedly. I've also been jamming to Black Tongue, The Red Chord, and Shadow of Intent. Highly recommended!
  9. No problem! I enjoy making recommendations and hearing that someone else found it rewarding. That's a great question as to the genre that "St. Anger" would fall into. I guess I've always just thought of it as straight-forward heavy metal and not really being characterized by any specific sub-genres. Not sure, though! What have you been listening to lately?
  10. Awesome, glad to hear you liked it! It doesn't have any guitar solos, but the heaviness is undeniable. You can tell they were trying to reclaim the "metal" title after a couple of albums that didn't amount to much more than radio-friendly rock. I'll always listen to it fairly regularly.
  11. I've always been a fan of "St. Anger", and I'm not ashamed to say it. I enjoy the rawness of the sound and appreciate Metallica making the effort to get back to ferocious heavy metal after the utter embarrassments of "Load" and "Reload".
  12. Lorna Shore - "Immortal" (album)
  13. Judas Priest - "Firepower" (album)
  14. Sodom - "M-16" (album) What a classic!
