i will jam out to anything megadeth up to the rest in peace album. i actually got to see megadeth perform rest in peace about 6 months ago, along with slayer and they did all of seasons in the abyss. anthrax opened up for them. it was like my teen years were brought right back. man, i love late 80's to mid 90's thrash, it doesn't get any better when it comes to metal, in my opinion.


i completely agree. such a great rcord.

Couple new recs for yas:

Behold...The Arctopus - Skullgrid : This album only loosely fits into the metal genre, and it's a super technical guitar-player's wetdream. Homeboy plays a Warr guitar, which is the weird 12 stringer that you can also hit the bass on.

<object><param></param><param></param><param></param></object>

Definitely not your typical group, which led me to

Indricothere - S/T : The above Warr player, Colin Marston, is involved in a lot of other bands, and this is just him with a drum machine playing some pretty mindblowing riffs. Definitely the more melodic of his projects.

<object><param></param><param></param><param></param></object>

Going back a bit (though they reformed and put out a new record in 2010) I present the original jazz-metal of Atheist (dating back to 1988 for you old school heads). Think of it as metal with some unpredictable improvisation, notable bass, and some different time signatures. Searching for videos on youtube was a fruitless and divergent experience.

Dawnbringer - Nucleus : This is probably the most straightforward metal I'll ever mention on here. We're talking clean vocals, no frills riffs, and, if memory serves, no double-bass drum. The also get props for a decidedly phallic album cover. This isn't really my cup of meat, but a buddy brought them to my attention so I'm paying it forward. This will most definitely please the purists out there.

Fantastic band. Bought Piece of Time a couple of years back having not head it for over 15 years - awesome. Roger Patterson was a phenomenal musician/writer. Another talent taken too young.

I only own Unquestionable Presence but it's some damn fine gusset-sniffin' stuff. I've heard their other two early records and the seem like the same kind of enjoyable sound.

Cripes. I need to add a few things. Neuro, I agree with your assessment of Skeletonwitch. First off, what a great fucking name for a band. Second, I saw these guys live with Trap Them, Toxic Holocaust, and Black Dahlia Murder. Trap Them, I think, were the best band there, but Skeletonwitch were a close second.

Here's a soundclip/vid for Trap Them:

Secondly, it needs to be said that the thread title reminds me of someone I know with Tourette's. One of his main fixation words is "metal" except he says it with a big buildup, like "MMMMMMMMMMMMetuuuuuuuullllllll." He is indeed a fan of metal music, so it works out ok.


To thank you for posting this, saw them twice at sxsw based off of this post and I was awesome, they opened for all pigs must die #bestbestbest

Hmmm. Acid Bath must be mentioned...even if they were more acid-doom-metal-esque.
Some of their heavier stuff:

All right folks, I've got a new batch of metal recommendations.

For those of you that dug Ahab, they have a newer record out, The Divinity of Oceans. Sticking with themes is good. Prepare to get your long song on.



I've also been enjoying Insect Warfare's World Extermination. It's fast grindy shit, like if Municipal Waste took steroids, sorta like Phobia.



Next up, with have Italian madmen Vomit the Soul. I guess the kids are calling this sort of thing "slam death" these days. Labels, right?



These dudes are more hard rocky than metal, but they've been dominating my iTunes of late. They're off Mike Patton's Ipecac label, so you can expect some weird shit from time to time. I present Zu. Apparently they've been around for a while, but they're new to my catalog.



Finally, I'm throwing Trigger the Bloodshed into the mix. I'm really digging their latest record, Degenerate. Expect fast as fuck death metal thematically similar to Dying Fetus.
