I can play old school metal all day, I grew up with it, I breate it, etc. I'm talkin' like Nuclear Assault, Acid Bath, Sepultura, SToD, etc.


But I'm trying to learn some of the new stuff now. Like I know pretty much all of Lamb of God's Ashes of the Wake album, but that's about it for new metal. What's some good songs to look into? Oh and please don't suggest you're favorite Guitar Hero songs (Six, Thunderhorse, Light that Blinds, etc.)

Though the band is incredibly gay... Protest the Hero-The Dessentiance is pretty fun to play. If I spelled that right... I don't really know any of their other songs as I don't listen to them. I just heard that song somewhere one day and it sounded fun to play so I tried it out.

I think some Mastodon songs are really fun, if you can actually play em. Try Cappilarian Crest, Aqua Dementia, Crystal skull, or Bladecatcher.
#8
Pantera, unless youd consider them old metal. But Cemetery Gates and Domination are good songs by them

Well you said I can't recommend Six...

But I will suggest learning some material off the album its on - The Fall of Ideals. There is a lot of awesome guitar work on that album.

Protest the Hero is another band with some sick guitar work.

Maybe some Children of Bodom, more Lamb of God, Mastodon, Arch Enemy, Once Nothing (Yea I know they aren't actually "metal" but they are pretty brutal and they've got some nice guitar parts), Machine Head. If you have access to a 7 string you might wanna get into some Unearth... You should find something in that list that will catch your interest.

Children of Bodom-Hatebreeder get the album, its amazing

Protest teh hero is good until the singer starts singing

Machine Head is pretty good

1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again

Children of Bodom - Hatecrew Deathroll, Follow The Reaper (both albums)

any song from either album is insane.

Suffocation's self titled album is killer, I recomend learning their stuff.

Aborted are another good one if you like that sort of thing... Their album Strychnine.213 is decent.

Nile's Ithyphallic has a killer sound, worth learning their songs.

Behemoth maybe..
#22
Two words: Dream Theater. Well, they're not really new, but they... sound... new? *runs*

But yeah, Machine Head is fun, so is Pantera.
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away...
#23
If your looking for some challenging stuff check out The Faceless. theres a song in my profile if you wanna hear. Might not be your style tho.

Devildriver, Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, In Flames, Opeth.

Between the Buried and Me has some sick tunes,

Try Alaska or Selkies: the endless obsession
#28
I'll say Opeth and Mastodon again.

I'd also heartily recommend learning or looking at something by Necrophagist. Dude is crazy.
#29
I absolutely hate them but Dying Fetus has some pretty nasty riffs.

ALL other suggestions in this thread have been awesome. I'm surprised so many know The Human Abstract.
#30
old Soilwork ftw! like...anything from Chainheart Machine or A Predators Portrait
Brigadier of the 7-string legion. 7>6

Fender Telecaster
Schecter Damien 7

Necrophagist, Nile, Opeth, Wintersun, and Dream Theatre all have ridiculously difficult guitar parts in their songs. Look into them.

1980s Ibanez RG470
Epiphone G400
Peavey Vypyr 30
Vox DA5
Vox Cybaby Wah
Monster Cables
and Red Jazz IIIs

Most Meshuggah is a brain workout rhythmically, if you have a 7 string or 8 string, I highly recommend this!

Also as mentioned above, check out Between The Buried & Me, Opeth, Machinehead, Strapping Young Lad, Nevermore (Jeff Loomis is god), Mastodon, and Alter Bridge (Although I'm not a huge fan).

Oh god stay away from that new (and nu) metal ****. Stick to the classic stuff dude. Lamb of god is nothing compared to that classic stuff.

IF you need heavier stuff look into bloodbath, jungle rot, suffocation, basically old school death metal or heavier thrash like dark angel or whatnot. If you haven't heard of exodus look em up(bonded by blood album is amazing)

stay away from bands like pantera. they are **** comparedt o nuclear assault(survive ftw) and sepultura.

I love Jungle Rot, Nile, Blind Guardian, Death, Morbid Angel, etc. They're all mandatory in my collection lol. I've never bothered to look up Nevermore or Opeth tabs now that I think of it. And yea Meshuggah is the ****. If you like them, check out Scar Symmetry (However it's spelt).

Oh and to the guy that suggested Dethklok......... No.

Nevermore is awesome, and they have a lot of cool songs that don't use 7 strings, so you can play them without having to shift everything down a fifth. Opeth is amazing as well. Mastodon has a lot of really cool songs as well.

Oh, and if you're feeling like a workout, learn "The Wicked End" by Avenged Sevenfold. I'm not a huge AX7 fan, but that song's solo is insane, and the harmony bit after the interlude is awesome.

Weeeeellll... they have metal influences but are technically a post-hardcore band, but Thrice songs are really fun. Especially Deadbolt.

But for tr00 metal, In Flames is good. Nevermore. Mastodon is pretty cool.
