Hello, new-time user here!

I've been interested in metal since I was around my early teens, but I haven't had enough... I dunno, courage to be open about it? 

My father has always been into rock music and blasted it every sunday, from morning to late - night hours. I enjoyed it, but it never interested me.

Now that I'm older and figured out my preferences and gained enough courage to be open about, I made this account to satisfy my metal needs.


Also, can any of You recommend metal bands that use vocoder?

(Sorry for my awkward English, it's not my first language.)

Welcome to the forum. Nothing to be ashamed of being a metal head. I personally listen to all genres of music but hard rock/heavy metal being my main listening pleasure. As far as suggesting bands, what kind of metal do you prefer? Thrash, death, black, speed etc. I myself am not big into the real heavy hardcore stuff like "Job for a Cowboy" and the likes. My catalog ranges from Slayer to Korn and most everything in-between. My faves are -


Iron Maiden 

Black Sabbath



Metallica - before the attitudes 


Judas Priest 

Plus a ton of the 80's stuff Crue, Poison etc........

Rock out and lift the horns high and proudly 🤘

Nice to see some reassurance. Glad I joined this forum.🙂

As for my preferences, I'm into heavy metal and thrash with some classic rock and death metal (sometimes).

Currently my favorite bands are


Earlier Metallica (thanks to my father)


Cannibal Corpse (sometimes)


Sorry for such a short list.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.

      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
