Reading Guitar World, and reviews on ug.

The recommendation thread at the top is a good start.

Magazines like Terrorozer, Zero Tolerance and Metal Maniacs are also really good sources.

Nothing beats having a well-informed Dutch friend though.

Well, when I know only about 1/3 as much black metal as VG and about 1/4 good music as VG and MH, they're the best choices here

You wouldn't guess it by how much music I rec around here, but I am damn picky about my music. Damn picky indeed.

Which is the exact reason I like to abuse your knowledge.

According to how much some of my music people find to be "meh" I guess I'm really lenient

I get a shit ton from Decibel magazine, I get a lot of great recs/info here on UG, and I use Allmusic a lot for finding bands, as well.

I used to use Pandora, but that was a pretty long process of finding good stuff, most times.

Good point VG.

By the way, The Axis of Perdition is flat out amazing. I'd always heard their name thrown around, but never looked about for them (same thing with Agalloch all those months ago), but holy shit.

The Elevator Beneath the Valve is the only piece of music I've ever been thruthfully afraid of whilst listening.

Pandora is decent for some forms of music. I still use my Baroque period play list on it from time to time.

It is absolutely horrible for Metal.


And yes Slay, Axis of Perdition is down right frightening music at times. They are very skilled at manipulating sounds to evoke the exact emotion they want from you.

I remember having an Opeth playlist (surprise, surprise) and it gave me Kataklysm.

o_O


Now, granted, I hadn't heard of Kataklysm at that time, so I liked it, but what do they have THAT much in common with Opeth that they get mentioned?

well...you kinda are an elitist. in the best way possible, being that you know pretty much every metal band i'm likely to ever hear, and give awesome recs.
