You can consider all these new bands like that if you are inclined to it.

It's been a long time since I've listened to Xasthur but Subliminal Genocide is one my favorite USBM albums.

Prison of Mirrors is an amazing song.

Why isn't there a musician/band-GAF thread? :( I'll have my first gig in a week and I'm fucking scared, actually, haha! Help ;_;

I guess many metal fans are in bands themselves, how do (or did) you cope with this?

Obviously different things for everyone but for whatever reason I generally don't really eat anything beforehand. At a certain point once you've done it enough times you get over it. Plus yeah drink enough and you won't care about anything, just stay coherent. I probably wouldn't recommend it if you haven't played before though, could go bad if you're too loose

What do you play? Is this a band you joined or a new one you guys started? If you joined it's a bit better just because you can (hopefully) trust the others to have their shit together. You can polish your own shit as much as possible but it means little when others drop the ball. Prepare for whatever you think could go wrong beforehand and deal with it if you need to. Just remember, at the end of the day no one probably cares about your band anyways ;)

What do you play? I play guitar and as soon as that first chord gets played it's fine, I have a pint or two beforehand and always remember most of the people in the audience can't do what you're doing.

I play guitar and only have a drummer so there's not much room for error for both of us, haha. :D We play a bit whacky stuff so some will hate it but I know some people like it already. Hopefully those stand in the front (maybe there's no back, we are the first band to play out of three).

I hope I can break my own ice with jamming a little in the beginning. I'll have a beer or two for sure. Have to be careful because it's fast and complicated shit but then again nobody really knows our stuff so being the guitar player for a two-man-group I could basically play anything as long as it fits the rhythm (if I fuck up), haha.

So basically beer. :D But yeah, I hope it's one of these "there's no turning back now"-moments and my fingers just go into professional mode...

I love Gost but dude seems like he's on damn near every metal fest in the US and now this.....nice to see success but like calm down here. I dig both but I don't need DJs opening for BM bands to become a thing, regardless of number of upside down crosses on your merch

This is cool. I have played Magic for years and didn't realize he did art for some cards. Not his best work but still cool.

Going to be seeing Sabaton on Friday down in NYC and the two bands that are opening for them are totally unknown to me. Anyone ever heard of Leaves Eyes and/or Battle Beast and if so can you suggest any of their stuff that I should listen to leading up to the show?

They aren't really metal, more metal infused Touch and Go type pissy nihilistic pseudo industrial with a screaming asshole and metal riffs with occasional shredding, but I highly recommend checking out Uniform for people who think they may be into that sort of thing.

Lol I came here to post this. Fucking awesome. Honestly this puts the new Suffocation song to shame. They way they can so seamlessly switch between old school east coast death metal riffs and their newer technical style all while keeping the trademark Dying Fetus slamming groovyness in there is just masterful. Not exactly a big change from Descend and Reign but if it ain't broke don't fix it! The Gallagher and Beasley duel vocal approach continues to work extremely well.

Fuck I'm pumped. I need this album ASAP. When I heard that riff at 0:24 I creamed my pants.

And just in case fetuses weren't being treated badly enough a new Aborted Fetus music video also just came out!

I dig that new DF track a lot. Can't say it grabs me as much as Subjected To A Beating first did (drums also sound a lot more clicky than usual?) but it's very good

Despite not being a big DF fan Reign Supreme is one of my favorite albums, hopefully they deliver here

The drummer of Internal Bleeding (early 90s dm band from NY) passed away today. He fell off a roof while fighting a fire in Queens. he served with the FDNY for the past 14 years.

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/04/...d-fire-queens/

Statement from the band:

"Our drummer, the heartbeat of the band, William Tolley died today. There are ZERO WORDS to describe the loss. He was a good, decent and honorable man who loved his friends, his family and the people he served. There will never be another like him. There are no words to describe the utter sadness and despair we feel right now. We love you Bill."

Mayor de Blasio:

"I'm very sorry to report tragedy has struck our city. Today we lost a hero of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). William Tolley was a 14-year veteran of the FDNY dedicated to protecting others. To William's family, we not only stand by you today but in the weeks and years ahead. Our hearts also go out today to the members of the FDNY, especially the members of Ladder 135 in Ridgewood."

Black metal video game covers by The True Werwolf, for those who might not have heard them before:

"Chi No Namida" (Castlevania)

"0373" (Journey To Silius)

Warning: it's the dude from Satanic Warmaster, so keep that in mind depending on how you feel about listening to bands with NSBM leanings.
