Welcome one and all, to another step on our way out. Only three bands this week, and then the week after, expect something that will appease your inner sensation for knowing each and every one of the contributors favourite albums.

But for now...


Impetigo

Bio: Impetigo are a long dead, but recently reuinted, and then back to being dead type of band. They play a death metal/grindcore style and are better than a huge portion of the metal world. I know it sounds like I'm just saying that, and I am. I don't care one way or the other what you think of this band, but if you're into death metal, there is no excuse for you to pass on this. They have two full lengths, being Ultima Mondo Cannibale and the better, Horror of the Zombies. I suggest you get both and spare yourself the time of listening to deathcore.

Sounds like: A monster combination of movie scenes and death metal. Like most grindcore, except more to do with cannibalism.

Why Listen? I could throw my entire vocabulary at you, but instead, I'll just make you read these lyrics whilst you listen to Boneyard,

Strolling through my boneyard
A ghoulish midnight stride
A walk among the corpses
Fills my heart with pride...
A score of screaming victims
To me they scream no more
Forty or four hundred, I've lost count
Buried 'neath the earthen floor...
One by one they meet their doom
Through macabre and nepharious means
Midnight in my boneyard
The wind blows through the trees...

Dissection

Bio: Well, Dissection. Where to begin..Created around the time of death metal popping up, they created their first demo, The Grief Prophecy, which was their only stint with death metal during their musical endeavours. Jon Nodtvoidt, the vocalist and driving force behind Dissection, decided to take his bassist and drummer, and add another guitarist to create my favourite album of theirs, The Somberlain, which is a melodic black metal album and a very good one. /bias After that. he decided to go through a total makeover. In doing so, he transformed himself into the exact same person and continued in the vein of melodic black metal, and created, Storm of the Light's Bane which has a song that is known for its fairly killer leads, acoustic guitar work, and Jon's girlish screaming. You know which one I'm talking, Where Dead Angels Lie. Awesome stuff, really. Of course, it all came crashing down as Jon was a firm believer in the MLO, take note of this...Anyways, walking down the street with his friend, he supposedly was held responsible and was accessory to murder of a man, who was also a homosexual. Literally. It was 1997 and he then stormed off to prison, where he was incarcerated until 2004. After his release, he added Set Teitan and Tomas Asklund to his band, whom are very, very good musicians in the metal world (Opinion) and formed, Reinkaos which is highly regarded as their worst album by idiots and sore bums. Haters gon' hate. Regardless, remember when I mentioned the MLO? Well, because Reinkaos was essentially a message about his beliefs, he believed he had done all he needed to do on this Earth, and in August, of 2006, killed himself by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun.

Sounds Like: Sacramentum, Taetre...Oh wait, those sound like Dissection.

Why Listen? Frankly, I'd be hard pressed for a reason not for you to listen to The Somberlain or Storm of the Light's Bane. They're both very good melodic black metal that were really some of the headliners of the melodic black metal genres.

Arson

Bio: A foursome of awesome. A Gang of bang. The group of up your pooper heavy metal. Arson are a relatively unknown band, as such, no one has any idea about them. The only thing I do know, is that Arson's Speak No Evil is currently playing on my computer. The only album released by them, and it's a great beginning and end to their careers.

Sounds Like: Lots of heavy metal riffs, tied with in a few gutterals here or there. Lots of power.

Why Listen? Well, if you don't, I will gladly revoke your man license. Just sayin'

    It's not a case of "holy shit we've found this new band, lets show everyone". It's more a list of bands we think are alright for Metal fans who might not know them. If everyone in the forum reccomended the bands they want people to listen to, we'd have hundreds.

    Listen, I've been fairly reasonable throughout this entire thing about the sheer volume of idiots, but you're a proper moron.

    ...Impetigo is in no way better than most metal out there. It's hardly even death metal.

    There seems to be another band named Arson btw, they've got a clip named Arson - Anchor on YT, someone oughta let either side know.

    Arson's official site says they're formed in 1998, the videos on Youtube you've linked to say 1994. Which is it? Either way, good to see something I like in there for a change as well. Major lack of thrashy bands for me most of the time.

    "Reinkaos" is a masterpiece, and all other Dissection material is classic! How the purists can't like "Reinkaos" is beyond me! Pure genius on that one!

    I gave Dissection a shot, and they're fantastic. Had the chorus of "Straless Aeon" in my head for days. "The Somberlain" is my favorite album so far, I haven't heard "Storm of the Lights Bane" yet, but I'm getting to it. Nice article!
