    This one is for @Boops



    Play this while working out. You will double, triple and even quadruple your reps and not feel an ounce of pain. I will never forget this song. This is proper mosh-pit material. That opening scream and build up of the riffs, monumental.

    Looking forward to catching up with this thread and hearing some new stuff.

    Prog Tech death



    Prog metal, soulful guitar solo ending, good band to get into if you're a fan of bands like gojira and opeth.




    Same band, heavier early stuff




    Grindcore, good for the gym

    Is metalcore acceptable here?

    According to Discogs.com this is heavy metal subgenre and I am personally fine with all heavy metal.

    (These are genres that Discogs is relating to all metal albums. As we know many albums aren't just one genre or subgenre, so there are Non-metal genres thrown in there.)

    This is not bad. The instrumental passages are tight and melodious. Nice. Not as raw as Gore or Nirvana (see their album "Bleach") but intense enough. The composition, regarding build-ups to break downs and the crescendo is exemplary(, I mean they did their homework on Beethoven for starters). You can count the measures and feel the music at the same time. That is good.

    Sorry, finally feeling rested and I had fresh coffee. The brains are starting to work properly again. ("All work and no good music is bad for the mind...")

    Not sure if A Perfect Circle qualifies here, but it's damn good:

    Ironically listening to it with some glass'n'vacum, haha.

    This is more of an alternative sound, although classified as alternative/prog rock. I would say this is not heavy, but since it is prog it is ok. Metal, prog rock and psychedelic is often mixed, so I would not go nuts over which belongs to which thread.

    Devon Townsend Project: prog metal/rock (depends on album) with heavily layered music.
    lighter stuff


    heavier stuff


    Primus: Experimental metal with a lot of emphasis on the bassist

    A little known band called Havok. A strong dose of Megadeth with a dash of Slayer. They're derivative, but skilled. And the album is well engineered and mixed.

    Wanted to get something off my chest.. head banging to something like Slayer Angel of Death is kind of odd. I personally can’t imagine the level of sufferings of the casualties of J. Mengele.

    I mean what does this represent spiritually... why should you be connected with it?


    I guess I know too much about WW2. This not a subject for throwing some double sided jokes around.

    On the bright side, enjoy your music!
