looks killer......guess i'll start the conversation.

i'm looking for progressive metal in the vain of Winds (norway)...think borknagar-origin, but done well. suggestions? strings (violins, etc.) are always a plus.

also, as far as doom goes, what should be my next step after my dying bride?


anyone


also, for dark ambient with a more nature feel:

^ for Doom, try some Swallow the Sun, Runemagick, Mourning Beloveth, diSEMBOWELMENT, November's Doom early-paradise lost and early-anathema in my opinion should be your next step. That was my next step after MDB. So give them a try jewish if you already havnt.

I'm looking for some really out there grind and/or death. Preferably something with good production, that 'wall-of-sound' feel (as opposed to Decapitated's Nihility, more along the lines of Nile's Annihilation of the Wicked), pretty fast, and more technical than not. Any recs?

Edit: I decided not to let it be assumed that I want it to be REALLY high energy, not like that ploddingly fast feel that gives the impression that the artists don't care. Sorry if this doesn't make sense, I'll try to think of a better way to phrase this whole damn post.

Edit again: I suppose Nihility isn't particularily empty sounding, bad analogy. I can't seem to find an example of exactly what I mean, but I'm hoping you guys have a bit of an understanding. Thanks a lot!

I was in a nu-metal band when I was 15. I hated the top 3 strings (G,B, and E). I wondered why guitars even had them.

I suggest looking into Green Carnation and Dead Soul Tribe if you haven't already. It's somewhat like Winds... not very technical, but extremely well done and kind of "chill."

Those are really the only two bands I can think of that come close to Winds.

Albums:

Green Carnation - A Blessing in Disguise... if you like that, check out Light of Day, Day of Darkness
Dead Soul Tribe - A Murder of Crows, The January Tree

Quote by Spynal
well, the doom metal essentials and albums are, ...

lacking, for lack of a better term.


Way too much emphasis on trad doom, and Agalloch wouldn't qualify as an essential, or characteristic band.


I'll put some thought into this much, much later and express my thoughts on the issue, as to what should be on the essentials


Sure thing, PM me what you want adding/changing

And the goth metal section needs some input aswell methinks....

I know I mentioned this before but if someone is looking for something specific it might be made easier for them by putting some band characteristics in the Recommendations section because even though there are plently of bands in a single genre most of them sound different. Just my 2 Cents

still looking for non satanic black metal


Im sure some people will know more than this, but have you heard:

Diabolical Masquerade - 'Ravendusk in my Heart'
Melodic minded black metal, no direct references to religion.

The Axis of Perdition- 'Deleted Scenes from the Transition Hospital'
Black metal intermixed with ambient and industrial soundscapes, absolutely wonderful, no obvious satanic overtones, its a story about a mental hospital...
#59
Oh PS I defenatly agree with Spynal on the Doom metal part (being a lover of Doom myself). I don't think the essentials and recommendations or whatever albums were emboldened showed a lot of Doom characteristics...that's not the term...

Im not sure what I want to say but I think you need more of...Standards...I guess you could say...Eh this is a toughy I'll think about it.

Recs for bands that are heavily influenced by Classical music? The heavier the better. I believe the term is Neo-Classical, but I'm not sure.


You might like Epica, they're female led and have a lot of classical influence.

What do you think about Opeths soft singer, do you think they need that vocalist or is that wut makes them Opeth?
#63
^^ Frick, I was going to say Epica. For classical/symphonic metal I'd also say Haggard (about 50% classical, 50% death metal), Angtoria, Fairyland, Rhapsody of Fire, and (newer) Therion might be along the lines that you're looking for.

Oh, I just realized you said the heavier the better.... in that case time to take out the symphonic black metal:
Agathodaimon, Anorexia Nervosa, Emperor, Graveworm, Limbonic Art, Sword of Darkness, Sycronomica, Tvangeste, and Vesperian Sorrow.

Symphony X, not that heavy compared to a lot of metal though.

Here's a rec request I made that a lot of people couldn't help me with...

I'm looking for prog metal with a melo-death influence, preferably with growls. Closest I've found so far was Evergrey, but it's not exactly what I wanted. I'm thinking something more in the vein of Opeth, Riverside, and Dark Tranquillity stuck together.

I swore I asked last night, but I guess I didn't.

But I saw Lacuna Coil on the list for recommended bands and songs for Goth Metal, but they weren't listed as such. And I looked briefly in the genres, and didn't see them. Where are they now?

Someone wanna give me some good viking/folk stuff (yes I know its not a genre) in the vein of Falkenbach? Just with the big epicness, like viking-era Bathory... maybe like Primordial a bit or something?

Edit: Scourge441, not sure if this will help you out much, but check out Quo Vadis from Canada, consider themselves a tech melo-death band.

lol Its avante garde black metal with jazz and carnival elements. Think Dimmu Borgir + Arcturus + Jazz + female opera vocals.


Diablo Swing Orchestra should also go under avant garde metal, and their album is The Butcher's Ballroom.
