There was one of these on SA a while ago, anyway I spend a lot of time at work looking up various metal songs/albums/videos, thought some of you folks might have a similar appreciation for it.
Anyway, the past few weeks I've been listening to:
Baroness - prog metal? idk they jump around a lot from album to album which is super cool. Each album is like a concept album revolving around a colour, new one is purple. Also their art is beautiful. if nothing else id like prints of these to hang up somewhere, very pretty.
Deafheaven - pretty much black metal for folks that dont listen to black metal. Has shoegazy type elements to it
Stoned Jesus - Awesome name, kickass album art, they're a ukrainian stoner/doom but very mellow. reminds me of mastodon at times
Volbeat - this dudes voice, fucking sex. idk why but some of their songs just get stuck in my head. More like standard traditional heavy metal. lets get groovy~
Insomnium - some pretty melodeath, good use of clean vocals, 'softer' than most melodic death metal but in a good way (imo)
Arch Enemy - this chicks voice! they have pretty girls sing but i cant fucking tell, brutal as fuck vocals. melodeath too i think? idk pretty good shit. This one song i linked has a reference to some classical piece that im positive i've heard somewhere before but i cant name the tune (~1.57 - 2.07). if anyone can figure out what it is they get a cookie (there is no cookie)
Found this shit today, kick ass cover of Bells of Notre Dame (from Hunchback of Notre Dame)
