metal bands that don't suck

i'm going to get flamed for the title... that's ok

i'm not really a big metal fan. i like some parts of some songs. oh, and dopethrone by electric wizard. most of the album. its good.

the breakdown in lamb of god's black label (near the end) is ****ing badass, for example.


oh, and master of puppets is alright. but everyone knows that.

NOT a fan of:
-constant screamo with no buildup of tension/release (it can work in breaks)
-vocalists that feel the need to jerk themselves off by drowning out all other instruments
-drums that sound like they were made on a sequencer (eg no velocity dynamics)
-thrash/mindless shred (guitar masturbation)
-insanely fast drums for the sake of insanely fast drums
-classic metal bands (judas priest, etc)


i'd prefer a band with clean vocals most of the time.


any recommendations?

dream theater has amazing instrumentals (super technical). i can appreciate that. i like the vocals too, they're like muse, kind of (one of my favourite bands). however, they've got this Rush-like quality that i just can't get behind. some people love Rush. i do not. XD

queensryche is NOT my thing. it forcibly reminded me of that meme with the sweaty 40 year old slaying cougar bitches with his rainbow keytar.

the singer from nevermore sounds like he's continuously shitting his pants.

blind guardian is the worst thing i have ever heard in my life. i hope they all get aids.

but thanks! XD

Yeah, uh, interesting. I really mean that. I know they're supposed to be discordant, and they pull it off. :/

the guitarist for sacred mother tongue is pretty good. nice crunch.
the video for a light will shine made me lol repeatedly. i've gotta assume they were being tongue in cheek. if not, its even funnier.

Tremonti's singer reminded me too much of the guy from nickelback for me to enjoy it....


Mnemic is actually decent. their singer's good. i'll have to check out more of their stuff but i tentatively like them.

i can see the appeal of soilwork, but its not for me.

thanks for the recommendations

You did just not say that?!



Muse is garbage, and you should be ashamed.

Sure they do.

They use the same song structure as every other band on the radio.

Deftones? Koi No Yokan is amazing. If you like Mastodon you'll probably like Baroness (especially the albums Red and Blue).

You dislike muse, i dislike 90% of the bands you're into. I guess we're even


Yeah, I guess you're right about Chevelle. Its not like certain song structures are popular because they work well. That would be silly.
Atypical song structures can be good. Care to show me your favourite example?

Broenheim, Deftones' self titled was one of the first metal cds I ever bought. They're one of my fav bands from back in the day. Team Sleep is bomb too.
Koi No Yokan is THE SHIT. I was blown away. And they did the entire thing on an Axe FX 2? Badassery.

I checked out a couple of Baroness songs. They're definitely good. Thanks.
