Who else, besides Dio, created fantastical worlds in their songs? Maiden rocks and has amazing story telling but so far their stories are of THIS world, not the world of Dio's which we can only assume is called Heavy Metal.

They do have a guttural sound all around but I'd disagree with that seeing as that White Lines Fever recording is my favorite for how rough it is.

Not all bands are going to click with you and that's fine, but Motorhead had a pretty good run there for a while. Not sure why Lemmy's voice bothers you this much but different strokes and all that.



Just going to drop this here cause it's sick and let you move on to whatever else.

Song is a total headbanger. Good stuff. Hopefully I can get into them. I love Lemmy as a person. Seemed like a rocking dude.

Giving Motörhead the ol five listen try. Last night I couldn’t get through their first album because of Lemmy’s voice so I don’t consider that an earnest try. I’ll give them five legitimate listens.

I’ve been listening to so many acts with opera vocals that I’m sure found his singing a shock. I’ll force myself to get used to it by listening more.

well yeah kind of. on one hand there is a lot of theatrical metal bands out there, that look reaaaaally gay, and actually aren't. but people apparently werent too surprised with him


Quote
Then there was the frontman’s outfit. The chained sailor’s cap, leather trousers and cut-off leather jacket over a bare chest, accessorised by studded wristbands and a whip, screamed one clear message to us kids: he must be really hard.

“In all honesty it never crossed my mind,” says Rob Halford, who came out in 1998 to the surprise of no one, apart from the under-12s. “I would dress up in leather, with the whips and chains, and the farthest thing from my mind was that I looked like a gay guy. Later on, when people referenced it, I thought, ‘You know what? Maybe they’ve got a point.’ ”

Heavy metal is a mostly heterosexual world, despite its theatrical tendencies. You would imagine Halford’s coming-out might dent the band’s appeal. In fact, the opposite happened.

“The reaction from the metal crowd was, ‘You think we didn’t know?’ ” he says. “Heavy metal fans feel like outsiders anyway and it turns out I wasn’t the only gay in the metal village. I got these wonderful letters, beautiful expressions of solidarity, people saying what a relief it had been for them. Now here we are in 2018 and we still have a long way to go.”

i mean it makes all priest lyrics better. illicit leather on rubber hookups in biker bar parking lots to the chugging soundtrack of a harley shovelhead is a way more metal image than just having vanilla missonary position sex with a standard issue groupie on the tour bus.

Been going to r/metal. They post a lot of new and old stuff. It’s helping me pin down my tastes. I’ve found I don’t like regular death metal but I do like melodic death metal. It’s been really helpful.

Various subgenres I’ve found I like:

Thrash



Melodic death



Black



Heavy



Melodic death



Also is death metal the most popular metal genre or something? Because it’s easily the most posted about subgenre on r/metal.

symphonic death is the absolute centre of the intense/theatric venn:



like other people have touched on, one of my favourite things about metal is that it exists in a quantum state where it both takes itself 100% seriously while being a massive over the top parody of itself at the same time.

I’m learning the subgenres within subgenres. :lol

Like Helloween might as well be a different power metal than DragonPoop :lol

Helloween :rock

So far it’s looking like traditional metal, power, and some death are my genres. :) Thrash is okay but feels more uhhh youthful? I don’t have that rage. Could work depending on context but thrash seems TOO ANGRY for me. Idk could be wrong.

POWER :rejoice

THE POWER UNLEASHED BY DIO :rejoice

Also Holy Diver still remains my favorite metal album. :rejoice

Yeah, I ended up listening to death metal all night while reading.

My conclusion: I think death metal is shit. Technicality means jack shit if your album has very little song variety, songs use the same motifs over and over, you only know one type of song writing: go 100 or go 110, and musicianship takes precedence over songwriting, and being fast and extreme is the only sole purpose for your art. Probably as boring a genre as trap, and many pop genres metalheads gripe about.

Different strokes.

I'm REALLY like traditional heavy metal, stoner metal, power metal, new wave of british metal, and prog metal. I'm really finding my groove. I'll finish the 80's new wave then start branching out. :rock

Can't disagree with that assessment. There are a huge number of death metal subgenres though, so maybe you just need to find the right one. Melodic death metal is often a good gateway drug into broader death metal.


Have you tried Morbid Angel's Covenant or Deicide's self titled album?

I tried melodic and although I like that more than standard death metal even that is like shooting a fish in an ocean for me. I thought it'd be for me based off some of the stuff I listened to but the more I explored the less I liked and realized the ones I liked were just exceptions.

I have listened to Death's Scream Bloody Gore, Cannibal Corpse's Scream Bloody Gore, Cannibal Corpse's The Bleeding, At The Gates' Slaughter of the Soul, In Flames, Bolt Thunder, some Kalmuh.

Try the two I mentioned earlier. If you don't enjoy those then death metal is not for you.

Edit: Although, I would have gone for Cannibal Corpse's  Eaten Back to Life rather than The Bleeding.

Edit edit: You MUST try Carcass's Heartwork album too. Probably the most musically accomplished straight death metal album ever.

Arise is generally classified as thrash, but it does share a lot of similarities with death metal. Great album by the way, try Beneath the Remains too.

Wow I listened to a shit ton of metal today.

Reviews:

Anthrax - Fistful of Metal - average and boring with some bright spots, listened to their follow up album and it was better but I just wasn't feeling it. Will keep listening to their albums.

Saxon - Saxon - is this even heavy metal? It's good but not heavy metal to me considering the time period it was released. Apparently Saxon becomes metal on their second LP. I'll check it.

Mercyful Fate - Melissa - broke new ground today. I refused to listen to any satanist musicians or artists and considering King Diamond is a satanist I passed them over. But by opening my mind I decided to listen  and give them a chance. Surprisingly great album that serves as a wonderful prototype for thrash. Really proud of myself for giving them a shot despite my initial concerns.

Slayer - Show No Mercy - Holy. Fucking. Shit. Best metal debut I've heard so far. Insane album. Although the content has a lot of satanist stuff, they're clearly playing theatrics and being edgy and it's working. A lot. They're so horrifying and great at conveying atmosphere.

Megadeth - Peace Sells - Megadeth and Metallica are the first metal albums I listened to ten years ago. I wanted to revisit them. Years later, I still prefer Megadeth. Artistically, lyrically, sonically, they just appeal to me more.

Metallica - Kill Em All - still dope.

Wew. Topping it off with Slayer and Manilla Road before bed.
