Heavy Metal - (Donsdaft exlcuded)
« on: October 06, 2016, 12:49:55 PM »
So, who likes their heavy metal bands on here? New stuff, old stuff, a mix of both?

Its hard to know what is construed as 'Heavy Metal' these days, but not so many decent up and coming bands coming through. Melodic Rock is a decent enough site for listening to newer bands, but find many just try to copy other bands, rather than be innovative.

Massive GNR and Metallica fan myself... will hopefully see GNR in Europe next year, with the original line up or close to it anyway  :thumbsup:

as im in my 40s i was blessed to see all the big bands live, the best was the hatrick of Sepultura gigs at the barrowlands 91,92,93 at their haydays.

Anathema, my dying bride, carcass, obituary, cemetary (excellent german band- split up now) megadeath, Seeing iron maiden next year ! :D) Uber gig where i broken my ankle, donnington 1992 AC-DC. megadeath motley crue played.

But alas too old now for running around drinking, throwing myself off a stage. I mellow out now with Anathema, my dying bride.

I,m a fan oh most music as long as its new and different, probably lean towards punk/rock more. Just been to see Luca brasi and new band called Rag n' Bone in last month (perth,Oz). If you youtube them, some might find them interesting! I'm open to recommendations oh the heavy metal kind to educate my soul?

Wouldn't choose to listen to the vast majority of Heavy Metal these days.

Loved Led Zeppelin in the 70's and saw Motorhead at Reading 79 and at the Capitol in the year and two after.

Probably haven't seen a Heavy Metal gig for 30 years. Motorhead were utterly awesome live.

Would love to see them live.  Been a favorite of mine for many a year. Load, black album, Master of Puppets and the S&M albums were epic.  Enjoyed GNR but only certain tunes, probably the classics in fairness!

You've just inspired my afternoons listening  :headbanger:

Meant to add, I used to love System of a Down.  War used to be one our pre-football psych up tunes at school.



And what's not to love about Chop Suey  8)

Saw Maiden a few years back at the AECC. They are one my all time favourites, but they were poor that night. Wasn't too much crowd interaction and seemed to go through the motions. It was not helped by the fact the AECC is awful for listening to live music in. That said, the warm-up act, Airbourne, were fantastic. Was also let down by the fact they played only one tune from ' A Matter of Life and Death". Bloody love that album!!

SOAD... I used to listen to them a lot, but didn't realise they were still on the go. At the time they broke into the mainstream, I was mostly listening to Nu-Metal bands like Linkin Park, Papa Roach etc etc. Some good times back in the early 2000's  :headbanger:

Always been into the heavier side of music although not entirely. Not keeping up with the newer bands on the scene but will deffo be buying the new Metallica album in November and hoping for a tour from them in the new year. Seen them many times before but they are well worth the effort and expense for the spectacle they put on. Maybe they will do another Download festival at Glasgow Green. That was a good day without having the hassle of heading to Donington, Reading or some such like far flung venue.

SOAD are one of those bands I haven't seen live yet so hopefully soon. Faith No More as well. Both bands have some excellent songs.

I think metal has evolved and grown so much that 'heavy metal' is, nowadays, basically a sub-genre of metal as a whole. I'm not such a fan of it, although I do love Judas Priest.

Black metal reigns supreme for me. Anything with some guy shrieking like a demon over a guitar sounding like knives scraping bones with machine gun drumming does me fine.

 Heavy Rock would be as far as it goes/went for me. Bad Company,Rush,Black Sabbath,along with more bluesy stuff, SRV,Led Zep,

  The Mob Rules(Black Sabbath),that must be on the border of Rock and Metal.Great album

I'm a massive Thrash geek. Apart from the Big 4, I'm also a fan of Suicidal Tendencies, Overkill, Sepultura, Vektor, Exodus, Lich King, Amon Amarth (I could go on for ages like!)

Having emigrated to Glasgow from The Deen a decade ago I get the opportunity to see a load of these bands without having to travel too far. Best gig was Anthrax playing at The Cathouse last November - seeing them play in such a small venue was something special. Have high hopes for the new Metallica album, but then again I had high hopes before they released Load. And St. Anger. And fucking Lulu.
