  1. You probably found this already, and concluded that it was made to recently to be what your looking for. It's pretty similar in style though. I would go with folk metal as a genre label, the song dates back to the early sixteen hundreds at least, if Wikipedia is to be believed.
  2. Did anyone watch BangerTV do "Shredders of Metal" season three, the drummer edition? It was as silly as anything they do, but entertaining, and very impressive. Also does anyone here concern themselves with what might be called NWOTM, new wave of triditional metal. Should that be a thing? I wonder if maybe it is a trend to put out cool retro style album covers, but maybe not a genre really, just a retro metal... well I'll just double down on the word trend. I don't want to be dismissive, and I love it, it's just all the existing 80s metal genres reskined with a high gloss finish more or less. One thing I will say is that bringing up a Spotify playlist labeled "New Wave of Triditional Metal" leads to a pretty satisfying result for this particular child of the Eighties. Where does it come from, are there a bunch of kids out the deciding that the obscure metal of the 80s was the coolest thing or is there a factory out there somewhere manufacturing all these bands, and throwing down for pretty professional looking cover art?
  3. I keep a couple spooky Halloween sounds CD's in my car which I listen to a few times a year in the off season. These suggestions seem to be a cut above that.
  4. Exciter - Heavy Metal Maniac And now Violance & Force.
  5. Sadly I rarely take the time to tune it which is a minor chore with all those strings, though thank goodness we are living in the age of the snark. The great thing is that it is very satisfying to play just on occasion as it easy to make it sound decent. I hope you won't think less of me when I admit that I have strips of papering propped under the strings saying what notes they are. It is like using training wheels.
  6. I have a hammered dulcimer, and think it could be great for metal, I've wanted to get a pickup for it and try it with some petals, but have not yet.
  7. JorisK, regarding the tune you are looking for, please check out the tune Right to Die by a band called Atrophy. I don't think it's the tune your looking for, but it is very similar. Anyway, Corrosion of Conformity is more artsy than this cut you are looking for, so I don't think it is them. Also I think the word 'water' will appear in the title of the tune, it is hear towards the end " 'something' in the water, dectives in the fire" do you make that out towards the end of the tune? Whatever lyrics do you hear JorisK? Nice one Noblastbeats, I'd never heard D.R.I. Much if at all, but that seems like a real solid suggestion. Right on target with the vocals and the overall sound.
  8. jorisK, welcome. wow Jackass. Hard way to make a living. I gather the thing aired in 2001, so there is a hint, but I bet the music predates that by quite a lot. Am I off base if I say it's from the 80's? I think it could be that old. I am not a thrash fan, but if someone says it's mid era thrash I won't be surprised. What is you plan once you learn what this music is? Will you be looking to hear the whole album it comes from? Are you planning to recreate the scene and want to get permission to use the soundtrack? I would caution you against a recreation of this or just about any segment from Jackass. The risk of injury is too high. I would watch with interest a remake of this dangerous ramp to the water done as a puppet animation, that would be a safe approach. I might try a little more to help find the cut if I wasn't so concerned for your personal safey. Hey, do you think the band might be Corrosion of Conformity?
  9. Armoured Saint playlist on Spotify.
  10. I love Maiden's eponymous debut, and the opening track might be my favorite because of it's position. There are several tunes on the album I like just as well, but it's a great start. I'm no Dickenson detractor per se, though in my way I am. The vocalist on the debut is my favorite. Was he only on that first album, or did he do others? I listen to Preist a fair amount, but almost never British Steel, literally I've listened to the entire album through fewer than five times in the past, well... let's say 40 years. Why you may ask? Well I'm going to tell you. It's the cover, it makes me intensely uncomfortable. That freaking razor, it creeps me out just writing about it. I recall some film where someone attempts suiside in the bath tub with a razor like that, and they break the thing in half. There are lots of Preist album with covers I love, so maybe I'm missing out on some fabulous tunes, but what's to be done about it. Apparently I have a delicate psychological condition. The cover on the first Maiden album, by the way, is one of my favorite album covers of all time so there is that.
  11. Welcome, I hope you have fun here.
  12. Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring Smoulder
  13. I don't listen to it all that much, but I love it and defiantly go through phases periodically. Much of it is pretty plastic, and just vocals done over generic music and you can tell is not really being done by a proper band, but when it is real it can be pretty awesome. I especially like certain African reggae, when the tonality of the vocals is sort of nasal. I really dig that. Mostly just know it, the African stuff, trough Putamayo recordings and long ass YouTube playlists.
  14. that is my story and I'm sticking to it. Pretty sure it was coming out of a red Camero but maybe it was a trans am.
  15. Why was I not told there is a band called Witch Vomit? I'm going to look into that right away. Witch Vomit - Buried Deep in a Bottomless Grave
  16. I am listening to people go on and on about Tiger King and whipped coffee as though there is nothing else going on in the world.
  17. Gates of Slumber - Hymns of Blood and Thunder
  18. Welcome to the forum. I'm personally a big fan of the Check Republic, it's the coolest country I've ever been to. I was there a long time ago, in the early 90s I guess. I would love to go again. I hope you have fun here and stick around.
  19. Somehow, in spit of the fact that five out of six of your sentences start with a first person pronoun... In spite of my misgivings that you are way to young to be playing a musical instrument... Even in the face of my extreme aversion to punks showing up here looking for academic field experience or outlets for petty research... I don't know why, but I've got a good feeling about you kid, and I'll tell you what, I am going to follow that link of yours and answer those five questions, but so help me, if your questions are inane, you will be hearing about it later.
  20. Hey, I definitely feel Candlemass is worth some attention. I'll answer you without fact checking, so watch out that I might say things untrue and misspell titles and names even. Go ahead and listen to the first album first. It is call Epicus Doomicum metallicus , which is not good Latin at all, but scholarship is maybe not the bands strong suit. Their strong suit is being super heavy and fucking rocking in the utmost. That first album is not long, and has a tune called Demons Gate, which is fantastic. If I turn out to be wrong about Demon's Gate and it is on another album, make sure you get to hear that song. The vocalist on that first album is good, and he never did another until their most recent album. The drummer is astounding on that first album, and as far as I can tell, he has never been on another published recording. I don't know his name but it is Something "weasel" Something. We metal heads, we live in a world full of incredible drummers, but sometimes listening to Epicus I'm blown away by the drumming. What became of that guy? I don't know. When you've heard that debut, move on to any album where Mesiah Mercoli does the vocals, and watch a video with him in it, like the music video for "bewitched" for example. Dude is big, has huge curly dark hair and performs in Franciscan robes. It's not to be missed. That dude Rob Loe, or however you spell it from Solitude Eaturnus recorded several Candelmass albums for better or worse. His is a dingus as far as I can tell, but not a bad vocalist. Try King of the Gray Islands (maybe not the correct title, but maybe close). I really like the album Death Magic Doom, I think it has both "The Bloody Barronese" and some tune about a sea monster called... I don't know "monster of the Deep" is not right, great tune though. Lot's of Candlemass albums if you like them, and they seemed to keep coming.
  21. An excellent question Lord Mannhammer! There are not very many of them and they don't vary much it seems to me. King of the Dead might be my favorite, and it's awesome. One Foot in Hell has the tune Doomed Planet, so that one is pretty topical at the moment. Make sure you listen to the tune Finger of Scorn, it's on King of the Dead.
