Re: lamb of god

More accurately a fusion of groove metal and metalcore.
I've never understood the "groove" tag. We just called funk metal. That is the genera of music where "groove" comes from anyway. :!:

Re: lamb of god I love the entire Groove metal thing. From Pantera to LoG. Both of the bands being in my top 5 list. And i mean, Lamb Of God is a fusion between several genres. Including Groove Metal, Trad heavy metal, Hard Rock, Death Metal, And some of the core things. But imo, They've made their own genre.. :P

Re: lamb of god

I mean the chugga chugga groove. We can thank Pantera for that whole mess. :P Nah, if you like it, more power to you. :)
I hope that didn't come off as an attack because that's not what I meant. I was thinking out loud, lol. I'm not sure when people started using that phrase but its rapidly taken over the original term. Perhaps it was more of a colloquialism to my area than I had realized. Pantera, Biohazard and several others...oi ;)

Re: lamb of god No, no. I didn't interpret it that way at all. You're fine. Man, where is the thumbs up icon when I need it? :ugeek: @Apoca: There are some bands that have done the groove metal thing "right" (or at least that I like). What's "right" is subjective anyway. :P You may want to check out Overkill's Killbox 13 because it is absolutely fantastic. I think you will like it. I'm glad the 'kill has recent returned to thrash metal, however.

Re: lamb of god I love OVERKILL. One of the best Thrash band in existence. I always get flack for stating that 'From the Underground and Below' is my Overkill album. 'Under the Influence' is a close second.

great death metal band' date=' and they play in drop D so i dont need to tune down :P[/quote'] I just wanted to make fun of this person starting this thread in the death metal section. HAHA! I'll say it one more time: It's impressive how well educated fan boys are about the music they listen to.

    • Sorry deathstorm, I don’t like it.

      It took me a while to come round to Amaranthe. I first heard them when they were announced for the roster of ProgPower XIII and thought they sounded too poppy, sage musical critic that I was. I did entertain the idea that that was the entire point, but dismissed them as being too technically lacking in any case. Their second album, The Nexus, featuring the least inventive album art I’d seen in a while, was a marked improvement, with its title track nearly a total ripoff of the leading single from their self-titled debut but a demonstrably better take. Everything was more or less the same, just done right. The riffs were on point, there were a higher proportion of peppy bubblegum tracks that sounded like Cascada doing djent (or just a slightly less sugary Blood Stain Child) – it was their best album. They followed this up with Massive Addictive, a somewhat weaker but nonetheless slightly different album with a couple tracks that sounded like they could have been composed by MrWeebl. As far as third albums went, it wasn’t bad – and the slow songs were actually all rights, even on the acoustic versions. It was also a little closer to regular melodeath. That brings us to Maximalism.

      In principle, the concept behind this album is fine. Amaranthe always imitated pop, so why not imitate current pop? It could inject some life into this worthless moribund slurry of pink noise that the post-Trump miasma has been nice enough to slowly excrete over this most recent tax period. I mean, the only way this would could fail is if modern pop were so limp-wristed and ineffectual that even the nuclear cocaine infusion of metal failed to resuscitate its bloated heart.

      Whoops.

      It’s fascinating how one can avoid actually discussing the album for so long here just because of the hilarious incidental commentary. All of the songs here a poppy in an obligatory sense, rather like the current generation of pop. I remember hating Ke$ha back in 2012 when she was big, but hearing “Tik Tok” after a bleak slog through a bunch of mopey nonsensical dogshit and limp-wristed soggy whining is a godsend. At best, Maximalism is a poor man’s version of their previous output, and at worst it’s an imitation of modern pop in the sense that you don’t remember anything about it other than that it sucked. Anyway, what about the actual songs?

    • "Wizard Bloody Wizard" is like the lifting of a thick fog.  From the off there's a feel of a dense weight being lifted from the band's signature occult/stoner blend of doom.  By the time I get to track two "Necromania" things almost seem like a dark cock-rock affair which is odd.   The over-arching feel though is of a band who have gone off the boil somewhat.  Despite the aforementioned lifting of the heavy atmosphere "Wizard Bloody Wizard" seems more of ground out effort made under some duress resulting in the album being robbed in the main of any feel...

    • I am a huge Cradle of Filth fan and on the album Hammer of The Witches they have a song called Right Wing of The Garden Triptych and based on the lyrics I believe it is a reference to the painting Garden of Earthy Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

    • Whether you love or hate Cannibal Corpse, their penchant for churning out accessible, fun and consistent DM can't be denied. Yes when they suck they really do suck (Gallery of Suicide), but even if technically never more complicated than most Kinder egg toys there's always a familiarity to CC albums that appeals. I get those that hate that familiarity. If you prefer to become lost in a Portalesque vortex when enjoying your extreme metal then the obvious churn of CC won't be for you. However, for every complex and archaic DM record in my collection I like to have a fair amount of surety too (someone will be along in a minute to replace "surety" with "safety" no doubt) and "Red Before Black" is as familiar to me after a few listens as most of the band's previous output...
