Who paid you to grab Dr. Pavel?
Cellador, damn I haven't thought about that band in forever. I remember liking their only album and wanting another and then it seemed like they had a completely different lineup every year. Cool that they finally put out another.
 
Yeah the new Cellador is amazing. The vocals on the new album are so smooth, I love them. Great production too. Swallow Your Pride is so damn good.

Also I listened to The Last Full Measure a few times yesterday, and for me it really cements just how how much better Civil War is than Sabaton. Hopefully things work out with their new vocalist. It's gonna be hard replacing Nils Patrik Johansson, The dude is a powerhouse!
 
I'm really into an old school death metal mood right now, any new bands out that capture that sound really well and not end up sounding like worship bands
Gruesome might be too much Death worship but their badass. Check out that new Obituary too. And yes I realize I've met like none of your requirements lol

Horrendous - Anareta
Horrendous - Ecdysis
Gorephilia - Severed Monolith
Hail of Bullets - ...Of Frost and War
TrenchRot - Necronomicon Warfare
Rude - Remnants... (this one ends up being a little early Morbid Angel worship, but still killer)
War Master - Blood Dawn
Funebrarum - Sleep of Morbid Dreams

There's a ton of spooky old school Incantation-inspired death metal nowadays, but I can't keep track of them.
 
Seeing Blood Incantation with Cruciamentum on Wednesday. Starspawn didn't really grab me as much as it did other people, but I loved Interdimensional Extinction and by all accounts they kill it live so hopefully it'll click with me more then.

I'd also recommend both to people looking for newer bands with an old-school feel.

Blood Incantation

Two amazing bands! Anyone who digs that Cruciamentum song should also check out Dead Congregation .

In other news I recently learned that Sabaton also did a Jawbreaker cover and it's AWFUL.
It doesn't help that the original is one of the best metal songs ever, and there was also an amazing cover by Rage.

EDIT: If you couldn't tell I was in a Judas Priest youtube rabbit hole and I can upon Halford's Betrayal which I totally forgot existed and really is one kickass song. The video is worth watching just for the hilarious intensity of "Metal" Mike Chlasciak. Also noteworthy is Bobby Jarzombek mean-mugging the camera!
 
Since GAF won't let me, can someone start a Pagan's Mind thread? These guys are absolute Gods and deserve their own thread,

Just watch this mashup of several PM parts/sections (if you like prog metal/power prog metal/power metal)

It'd be awesome if PM had their own thread. I can't do it because I guess have not enough posts...but I trust in the GAF

This is tragic. Their music has become deeply rooted in me and this just sucks. Was looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks too.

That's too bad. Rest in Peace, good friend.
 
Gorguts/Defeated Sanity tour is confirmed Dharmata material only from Defeated Sanity

With Gorguts probably playing their stupid EP they should call this "Not What You're Looking For": The Tour

PM is one of my favorite prog bands. When the fuck are they going to put out a new album?!

Any Gamma Ray fans here? I've been on a power metal trip lately and I forgot how great Somewhere Out In Space is! Powerplant is excellent as well. I didn't keep up with them after that album though. Is their recent stuff any good?
 
Folks shouldn't forget how good Sadus were

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x48TndF7hk

Also, I am pretty drunk but still feel I mentioned this before. But Worship Him, Blood Ritual and Ceremony of Opposites are three classic albums. Samael's stuff nowadays might be whatever depending on the person, but those albums are fucking killer.

To extend from that thought ANAEL were good too, but it is kinda hard to find their stuff now. They had a great split with LUST from Canada and their first full length was great.

Sadus never gets any love because they're too fucking brutal. First two album absolutely crushes. I love DiGiorgio's bass sound on them, which carried over to the first Autopsy album.
Cool live footage put together Sadus - Certain Death

Samael - Ceremony of the Opposites is definitely a classic. Blood Ritual and Worship Him are great in their own rights, but I feel Ceremony of the Opposites stands out the most.
 
WIFE - Standard Nature (Ireland, electronic)
Not metal, but this crosses over naturally I think. Metal has been as boring as it ever has been so far this year, but this is fresh. It has maybe the most legit Ghost in the Shell style cyberpunk sound I've heard in awhile (so much more than the endless 'synthwave' 80s sounding stuff that is being sold as cyberpunk these days). WIFE is a project by James Kelly (Altar of Plagues, currently split).

https://profoundlorerecords.bandcamp.com/album/standard-nature
 
Dancing in Madness, Lie of Survival, I Saw the End and A Plea For Understanding. Fucking hell, these tracks. Total annihilation. Some of the most ungodly melodies I've heard in a while.
 
Listened to the new Pallbearer and honestly didn't care for it. Just didn't grab me at all. I'll listen again but my first reaction is that I don't like it. Kinda bummed because I liked that EP they put out a lot. Sorrow and Extinction is still their best though.

Well, it's your opinion and I respect that, but I'd argue that they've greatly grown as a band since their first album. It's a really good album, but in no way, musically and production-wise, does it hold a candle to Foundations and the new one, especially. Again, just what I'd argue.
 
Me and my bro are working on a deathmetal cover of "Kryptonite" by Three Doors Down, which is maybe my dumbest sober idea ever. No real major reason other than it seemed fun and has been. I'm stuck with really shitty VST guitars though, so it's gonna sound...bad regardless of what I do.

But fun project is fun. My attempts at growling are finally at a place I can claim is "not embarrassing"

Doubt anyone cares, but "death metal kryptonite" makes me laugh as a word combo so there ya go.

New album out from the greatet metal band on the sunset strip

I normally like Steel Panther, but I honestly haven't liked any of the tunes I've heard off of this one. They just aren't funny.

Haven't gone through the whole thing yet though.

Can I get some recommendations for some newer stuff? My favorites are like Arch Enemy (Angela Gossow years), Eluveitie, Galneryus, Vampillia, and Children of Bodom

So any great Melodic Death Metal, Folk Metal (more on the Melodic Death Metal side than Thrash Metal inspired), Experimental Black Metal, or Power Metal (but I'm really picky about this subgenre) bands that are still releasing stuff.

Spotify links welcome.

No spotify because I'm lazy. But I'm going through my music directory for you...

Alcest (blackgaze staple)
Chthonic (Taiwanese "folk" metal)
Crimfall (folk; plan to release their third album soon after a longer hiatus)
Dark Tranquility (melodeath genre staple)
Ensiferum (folk genre staple)
Equilibrium (light hearted pagan metal; don't know how popular outside Germany)
Harakiri For The Sky (emerging blackgaze band)
Heidevolk (power-folk-metal?)
In Vain (melodeath insider tip)
Insomnium (melodeath staple)
Kataklysm (death/melodeath staple. I think newer albums are more your style)
Ne Obliviscaris (just give it a listen)
Soilwork (melodeath staple)
Wintersun (folk-y/symphonic melodeath)

I'll add Varaang Nord to the above lists. Russian folk metal.

Moonsorrow might be worth a look too, since they have some folk to their black metal.
