Listening to Alice 'N Thunderland right now. Trying to track down the CD for a good price but I'm not having much luck.

I've been listening to this band quite a bit at the moment. Some of the best modern metalcore I've heard in recent memory.

If you don't know about them already, they're an encyclopedia of metal bands. I really love the site and contribute to it all the time. The only thing is they can be a bit snobby about what is and isn't metal, especially when it comes to Metalcore. E.g the Phinehas band you posted above is blacklisted.

I don't go there because it's a "true metal worship" site in my eyes. Not my style considering how I respect every metal genre.

Oh my, Metal is an old genre that I really loved so much in the good old angsty teenage years, I dont listen to it often anymore but I find stuff thats pretty good every now and then.

I like hipster black metal and tech death the most though like An automn for crippled children, origin, cattle decapitation, Altar of plagues.

Oh I also have a guilty pleasure for post-hardcore but thats too much over in the punk/indie category to mention here tbh

one of my all time favorites:

 

EDIT

Thanks for making this thread, you reminded me of a uttermost splendid band from China!

Well, I would't really call myself a metal fan maybe. More towards the rock, punk or metalcore. I don't listen to it that much but at least once or twice a year I got a period when I listen to it. But nonetheless. Here is my list of favorites:

  • The Offspring
  • In Flames
  • Sonic Syndicate
  • Hammerfall
  • Sabaton
  • Ensiferum
  • Freedom Call

Interesting. Swedish bands are good at making music. :)

This is my favorite (metal?) song atm though, holy shit

Most "true metal fans" would call it absolute shit though, but luckily I have a guilty pleasure for synths and autotune lol

 

 

 

My kind of Japanese metal is Desecravity. They're pretty awesome and they're tech death so that is a bonus.

(I'd post stuff from them here, but I'm in the middle of school right now).

@Down made a thread like this a year or two ago. But w/e :P No point necroing an old thread 

 

 

Either way I've been listening to this song a lot. The riffs should be illegal.

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

Whitechapel is alright to listen to sometimes 

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

I more or less got into metal by listening to slipknot, limp bizkit, SOAD and korn back in school. 

 

 

Anyone who adds A7x to their metal list is getting a slap. They're not metal!

We've talked music before but so much yes.

@Kawasumi, Dopamine are indeed awesome too. You familiar with Zuriaake at all?
