Metal Channels

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about any good metal channels on youtube?

I severely disagree with Banger tv taste wise, maybe its more for the younger crowd I guess. I like Downfall Network's restrospectives and Metal Mythos retrospectives but they hardly have anything new. I haven't been able to find anything good in a while.

Using this thread because why not..it's here and I've hit the mother load


SOLITUDE PRODUCTIONS runs a 24/7 radio, mostly for anything Doom Metal related.

666MrDoom - everything Doom/Stoner Metal

b4keve00 for everything that is Black Metal underground. The channel has slowed down a lot but is still worth checking out.

Captain Beefart for everything that is Psychedelic (Rock).

For more Black and Death Metal (and edgy stuff): Cosmic Hammer

DEATH FETISH for all the weird psychedelic Black Metal stuff that Black Magick SS has started.

Dot Dot Dot - Death and Black Metal and a lot of obscure bands

More Psychedelic Rock stuff: Eternal

Grindwar Channel: Grindcore, Death Metal, Crust/Punk

Harakiri Diat: everything Punk, Psychedelic and obscure

HeavyStonerDoomBlues - the name says it

John Smith - no new uploads anymore but lots of old Heavy Metal albums and gems from the 70s/80s

MrStonerBeliever and MrStonerBeliever2 - both dead but lots of Doom/Stoner stuff

Mao da Gloria - Underground Black Metal

NewWareOfOldSchoolThrashMetal - Thrash Metal

No Gleaming Light - Black Metal, Death Metal, Crust/Punk

NoPunksInK-Town - Death Metal, Grind, Crust/Punk

NoFunNoMoshNoCoreNoTrends - Death/Black/Thrash Metal

NotesFromTheUnderground - all sorts of Underground Metal

NWOTHM - Heavy Metal

ObeyTheRiff - Doom/Stoner/Psychedelic (dead but still a good channel for digging)

OdiumNostrum - Death/Black Metal (if you like DEATHSPELL OMEGA you will find a lot of DSO inspired bands there)

Rare & Obscure Metal Archives - well, lots of rare and obscure old metal stuff. One of the best channels out there.

ROB HAMMER - Doom/Stoner/Psychedelic

Stoner & Doom - dead

TheBongDruidOfMammothWeedMountain - dead (Stoner & Doom)

ThePsyFrost - obscure underground Black Metal stuff

Underrated Albums - Not really Metal related but lots of obscure bands. So fucking awesome.

Veterans Of The Psych Wars - More obscure and psychedelic stuff. And the guy behind it wears a tin hat and sometimes starts to rants about politics in the comments and his channel community section. Hilarious.

    • 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!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  

      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
