Awesome to know we have some metal fans here. What are you guys into?
Personally I listen to a lot of metal that uses strange time signature changes, breakdowns, and lots of experimental and boundary pushing vocals and instrumentation. Currently I’m listening to The Dillinger Escape Plan - Panasonic Youth. If you haven’t heard them, they’re pretty nuts and VERY diverse for a metal band. I can’t say I like all their material but it’s incredible how good they are as musicians. This is the song live if you have any interest, their stage presence is top notch.
Some other metal bands I like are:
Straight Reads The Line (my favorite metal band hands down, the vocalist is incredible!)
War From A Harlots Mouth
Between The Buried And Me
The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza (probably next to SRTL as a fav)
See You Next Tuesday
The Number Twelve Looks Like You
And also I still can get down with a lot of metalcore and deathcore though they are more of the same thing usually I find so I listen to them mostly for breakdowns and heaviness rather than intricacy.
Anyway, what about you?? Glad to hear of more metal fans!
