Yet again I entered a phase in which I'm sick of listening to the ol' classics and want to get into some new bands. But as somebody else lately put it "every new metal band is ruined by a singer who either sounds like the Cookie Monster or a wannabe opera singer". I totally agree. There's no point copying Halford on one hand, and on another I'd at least like the singer to have as much melody in his voice as say Tom Araya.
I've heard Mastodon, Opeth, Killswitch Engage, FFDP, and other contemporary bands, but they just don't slay me. Any recommendations?
We have a recommendation thread at the top of the page. You might fancy asking there instead of making a new thread. Thanks.

EDIT: Oh damn, I didn't even read the message.

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
