I think RZ can support a heavy metal thread. This thread is to share heavy music. I invision this thread covering classic metal, thrash, nu-metal, black metal and any other heavy music there is. I kind of stole this idea from the AOR thread I like so much. The point is not to tell someone what sucks, but to share what you like. Although you do not have to post links, they are appreciated (I will listen to every one that is posted). Also, anyone wanting to share news (new releases, live performances, deaths) this would be a perfect place to do so.

I hope everyone enjoys the first post. They are some of my favorites, from bands spanning from 1970-current.

Black Sabbath-N.I.B.

Simply put, my favorite riff of all time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOXPSSZkFD0

Metallica-For Whom The Bell Tolls

My favorite song on my favorite Metallica record

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_eGXPzSzAg

Danzig-Dirty Black Summer

Love the guitar, love Danzig

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kRtTtpG8Ls

Pantera-Drag The Waters

Huge, heavy riff.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hx8TW6sYys

Epica-Cry For The Moon

Something completely different. I dig this European symphonic metal. I saw Epica last year, and she (Simone Simons) sounds just as good live as on the CD.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e77tLfkiVn8&feature=related

The above are not necessarily the best artists (or the best by these artists), but a great place to start a thread about heavy metal.

As a classical musician who loved metal Metallica's S & M was pretty much the greatest thing that ever happened to my ears.

Metallica was my favorite band in high school and then some. I wore a different Metallica t-shirt to school most every day except Fridays which were Good Mourning/Black Friday. I had hair to my ass and played bass in a band. I loved metal. Still do, but for different reasons these days, now its about music more than anger and attitude, though I still love it for those reasons sometimes too.

Sorry for your experience. From what I understand from about '76 until Ozzy left it was a crap chute whether you would get good Sabbath or bad Sabbath live. I didn't see them until they were doing Ozzfest in either 01 or 02. Great show!

Metal? Isn't that the satan worshipping music? Why, I can't even understand what they are saying. How can you listen to that crap? Kill your mother, rape your dog? That's just a bunch of noise.






Have I covered all the stupid cliches yet? Anyone who says that to me, you aren't clever, you aren't funny, and I hate you. :D

This thread will quickly become my favorite thread on the board most likely. I'm on my phone right now but I will post some cool stuff later.

I'm only including this because the Knight Rider riff around the 2 minutes in cracks me up.

You know how everyone says old bands suck when they do new material? Those people are dumb. This rules.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWy1kFe2oCs

New TESTAMENT!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtP6Brv6CCM

New Kamelot with their excellent new singer.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORAc_hx33-Q

My favorite Nightwish song: It will get stuck in your head for days. I'm partial to the live version so that's what I put up.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plkM5iQ6BvY

And finally for now....my favorite band in the world....ever.

True about three axes in Maiden for a bit of time (and today). But I am an old-school'r who still claims "Hallowed Be Thy Name" as his fav Maiden song (from the Murray-Smith days). I guess my favorite IM releases are Number of the Beast, Powerslave and Killers. Yep, old school! A lot of newer metal bands cite Maiden as an influence.

Ravenlord

i think Norwegian and Swedish and Danish language lyrics fit black metal best.

not a big fan of black metal, i like melodic black metal a whole lot more. i would say that the only black metal bands i truly enjoy are Bal-Sagoth and Cradle of Filth.

i've always been amazed that Bal-Sagoth isn't much, much bigger among the black/death metal world than what they are, but i guess it's because they don't cover anything resembling normal black/death metal content.

It is worth checking out.

I am only an hour in, but it has a wide range of "heavy metal" from Led Zeppelin, The Scorpions and Disturbed to Metallica, King Diamond and Iced Earth. It is clearly heavier than anything on the radio, but to call everything heavy metal is quite a stretch.

The early return gives it a 6.5 out of ten. It is clearly listenable for a hard rock/heavy metal fan, but it has no discernable flow to it.

Interesting news here.

http://www.bravewords.com/news/194690


JON OLIVA'S PAIN drummer/producer Christopher Kinder has checked in with the following update:

"We thank you all for your patience with regards to announcing our new recording plans. While JOP is very much intact and focused on new music and future touring... JON OLIVA will release his first ever solo record in early 2013.




Jon has assembled a collection of ideas from the past 4-5 years and wants the opportunity to present them as his own work. Jon will be recording nearly all the instrument tracks and vocals himself and also playing drums on several tracks. Once again, I have the honor of recording the bulk of the drum tracks on the new CD, but this record will have been created from start to finish with Jon being completely at the helm."

Oliva himself commented: "I’ve got some weird ideas that I wanna try and I’ve got some time to do it. I don’t want do just 'another' JOP record. I’ve done four of those already. I wanna do something different. I have some material that I’ve wanted to put out for a while, that I’ll talk with the record company about, maybe putting something out quickly, like in the next four or five months, to give me more time to do this JOP record. I want the next JOP CD to be very special. I’ve got some great friends from other bands that are going to be a significant part of the next JOP release. We are going to do a killer JOP record and then an additional bonus CD with guest stars... kind of like the AVANTASIA thing but not in a story line. Tobias Sammet does a magnificent job with it, but I don’t have that much time to write a whole story, so I’ll just have some powerhouse friends from various bands come in and take it over the top."

Drum recordings begin at the legendary Morrisound Studios in mid December. The record will be released via AFM in the spring of 2013.

Be forewarned. My first experience at a TSO show wreaked havoc on my mind. It's odd seeing middle aged people in suits and party dresses sitting in an arena watching the same guys playing music on stage that I used to see in the clubs as Savatage.

Would you call the former members of Savatage "sell outs"? This is a thread about heavy metal and all of us that like heavy metal know this term is used in this genre of music.

Which leads me to the Euro Metal thing that I do not like. You know... the metal with a very prominent keyboard part/sound. Keyboards are not that bothersome to me... Ozzy used them well in his band, Dio's "Rainbow in the Dark", Dream Theater and even Black Sabbath. Hell, I used to play some keyboard in metal bands (used in about 4 of 40 songs in a gig lol). But that Euro thing (sorry but cannot think of a better term) where the keyboard has that high-pitched/whiny sound. No offense to Captain13 (and thanks for the videos!), but that Alestorm band has that darn keyboard sound. Like fingers on a chalkboard to this old metalhead.

As Iron Maiden wrote on the back of their Piece of Mind album... "no synthesizers or ulterior motives"! Then of course they implemented guitar-synths two albums later (ugh). We do not hear Bon Scott mention keyboards/syths in "Let There Be Rock", right? :)

Yes, I would say they sold out, but I don't think "selling out" means what it used to.

As far as keyboards go, I prefer my metal without them. Some of the Euro bands are using them to create a symphonic sound and I like that. As far as the 80's stuff, I would have preferred Rainbow in the Dark and The Final Countdown if they had used guitars for the same purpose. I know you were just using Alestorm to make a point, but I don't take them seriously, and I prefer the keyboard to a real bagpipe :thumbup:.

Ravenlord
12-12-2012, 03:58 PM
in the case of Alestorm the keyboard is only used live and in videos, in the studio those are overwhelmingly traditional instruments being played. in the case of something like "Keelhauled" it's an electric acordian fed into a distortion pedal.

Recent posts (and my crazy head) have made me ask myself "Why do I love metal?"

The answer is not simple: I could go into the psychology of youth and feeling connected to something larger, I could talk about screaming guitars and banging drums, I could talk about Ozzy and Maiden and Metallica and Slayer, I could talk about dark imagery and social taboo, I could talk about crazy concerts and mosh pits, I could talk about the sub-culture. Someday I may write about some or all of those things, but today I am going to simplify things and say my love for metal comes from two things Power and Passion.

There are many ways to exhibit this: the raw power and speed of thrash, the slow grinding power of early Sabbath and Type O, and symphonic power among many others.

So here is one example of the Power and Passion that helped me survive my wonder years.

As Iron Maiden wrote on the back of their Piece of Mind album... "no synthesizers or ulterior motives"! Then of course they implemented guitar-synths two albums later (ugh). We do not hear Bon Scott mention keyboards/syths in "Let There Be Rock", right? :)

I wouldn't call them sellouts. If you know the history of the band you already know that their change from traditional metal to more prog/symphonic metal was a slow natural progression. If Criss hadn't gotten killed they probably would have continued on the Edge of Thorns sound instead of going straight up TSO style with Dead Winter Dead. He always struck me as the metal guy in the band.

Of course I'm biased toward the progressive side, as Streets is in my top 5 albums, ever, by anyone.

that was the first Savatage song i ever heard. i think was 11 years old. probably good that it was something from Hall of the Mountain King. with my attitude towards music back then i probably wouldn't have listened to another note for years if something like "Gutter Ballet" or "St. Patrick's" or "Sleep" or "This Isn't What We Meant" was the first thing i had heard.

Your loss. You're missing out on some good stuff, no matter who is or isn't in the band. Occasion Avenue off Keeper 3 is one of the best 40 songs of the last decade.

as long as the same songwriters are largely intact it doesn't bother me. when you have different song writers, it's not really the same band. that said, Pink Bubbles Go Ape is the only Helloween album i didn't own when my original collection was stolen about 9 years ago; and i think i'm one of the few people outside of Germany and France who can tell you more than a song from it.

despite my love of Kai Hansen, i've never owned a single Gamma Ray album, just a couple of their songs off of iTunes.

I saw Black Sabbath in 1976, they were tanked and horrible

So much promise for that one!

I saw them in '85 with ex-Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillian. They were disgustingly bad.

For me - and due to my "advanced age" - heavy metal is still found in the 60s/70s....

Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Who, Deep Purple, Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Rush, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, etc.

Now that doesn't mean I still don't appreciate (listen) to those that came later, beginning in the late 70's, such as Van Halen, Scorpions, Metallica, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, etc.

I actually dug Born Again. It was different, but I really dig Zero the Hero, Disturbing the Priest, and Keep It Warm. The production is very harsh on the ears though.

All LPs thru Somewhere in Time, Maiden Japan, Live After Death, 5 singles (Number of Beast, Trooper, Icarus, Aces High, 2 Minutes) and two earlier albums that both have Margaret Thatcher on their covers (one she has just been stabbed by Eddie / other she is in army uniform with rifle in hand aka Women in Uniform). I was an IM junkie back in the day (and Priest too lol).

Not on an ego trip (although I play guitar lol)... but thought I'd share another old band vid with ya. Three songs in this vid: Electric Eye (Priest), Flight of Icarus (Maiden) and Heaven and Hell (Sabbath). Back in those days (recorded Dec. 1992) bands had demo tapes to give to bar owners for possible gigs. We did a Demo Video and gave that to bar owners with the adage of "hear and see us". Not sure why b/c we were ugly lol. We also had a buddy who worked for a video companythat did local commercials and stuff. He filmed and added some "special effects" that were cool for the time. This video shows both guitar players using Kramer guitars (when it was cool to have, Eddie VH endorsed). I am the one with the white Kramer Focus 5000 that is shaped kind of like a 4-pointed star and play rhythm guitar. The shape of that guitar was used for the "K" in the band's name, Absolut Rukus, for our logo. Boy, we thought we were cool. All in the pursuit of females of course... :)

I know it's not the same as having the vinyl, but if you can find the Castle Records 2 disc version of Killers that came out in the mid 90s, the bonus disc has Maiden Japan on it. All those bonus discs are pretty cool actually. I think I have Killers, Powerslave, and Seventh Son out of those and they are all quite cool. B side stuff and unreleased live stuff.

I am referrring to the riff from the musical (a riff, BTW, that Andrew Lloyd Webber ripped of from Pink Floyd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0S3fpgrZ9ys ) . In God is Dead? I hear it in the chorus, it isn't exact but there is a resemblance.

I guess there's a very slight resemblance there, but honestly, I think Iommi has used that riff or close to it before, but I can't place it. What you are referring to reminds me of something from The Devil You Know I think. I just can't think of the song.

I never made the Echoes/Webber connection before, and I love Echoes.

I have a couple of there c.d.'s i like there Disc "One Hour by the concrete lake "
Grabbed this bit from a amazon review about the concept behind this Disc.

The radioactivity in Lake Karachay in the former USSR. Most of us might have heard of Chernobyl, for example, because it was very apparent. But learning that a lake covered in concrete had such a high level of radioactivity that it could still kill someone after only an hour standing near it .

Bringing this back up....am I just talking to myself here?

The new Sabbath is streaming on iTunes. It's VERY good. Way better than I thought it would be. Iommi wrote some KILLER riffs for this thing. I thought it would wind up sounding like The Devil You Know, but with Ozzy on vocals instead of The Man. It doesn't. It sounds like Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Sabotage.


On a downer note, the new Megadeth blows. Hard. Very disappointed.

Ya know the sabbath isnt bad better then i expected although it seems again Iommi and butler must have something against drummers cause the drums seem to my ears at least a little muted . Brad wilk does very admiral job in a no win situation for the most part but it seems to be missing that certain swing that Bill ward brought to those early albums. My Pic for the drum seat would've been Stanton moore from the band Galatic he's got the swing and the power just like a younger Bill Ward go listen to him on C.O.C 's-In the arms of god .

I just listened to "13" online. I didn't get to listen as well as I would have liked, these people expect me to "work" when I am at my place of employment. I will say, while it doesn't compare to the first four Sabbath albums, it is better than anything Ozzy has put out since Ozzmosis and way better than I thought it would be. I can't wait to hear the whole thing again. And again.

i actually wrote a D&D/Pathfinder module heavily influenced by the tone and some of the lyrics of these three songs. . .when i'm this heavy into A.I.C. it's generally not good for my sobriety, but this seems an exception as i focused on the tone, not my genes.
