Holy SHIT, that Uncle Acid track that kicks off the thread... So good. The last minute or so of unfurling solos... I owe you guys for the tip!

i met the jawbox dude that was living here several times at parties and got all shoestarey every time to avoid being THAT DUDE and getting all slobbery abt how awesome they were

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 23:13 (five years ago) Permalink

oh yeah wasn't he in a band here the Millions or something? i sadly never got out to see them

l0u1s j0rdan (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 23:27 (five years ago) Permalink

he played w/tom in some project as well which would have been fucking rad but i dont think they ever played out

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 23:32 (five years ago) Permalink

oh shit that would've been some serious chops in the rhythm section

Are Poptimists still into it?

What should a Poptimist check out?

I'm waiting for the day for Lex to embrace a metal band.

MarkoP, Thursday, 9 February 2017 22:42 (two months ago) Permalink

Babymetal didn't even tempt him.

Odysseus, Thursday, 9 February 2017 23:08 (two months ago) Permalink

I could see him liking Myrkur or Darkher maybe

v pompous drumming, for starters

I think there would be more chance of Lex liking a metal band than Tuomas

Odysseus, Friday, 10 February 2017 08:04 (two months ago) Permalink

Myrkur's not a bad choice actually. It's like Tori Amos's idea of black metal

Did Lex like the last Chelsea Wolfe album?

steely dad (Drugs A. Money), Friday, 10 February 2017 09:09 (two months ago) Permalink

yup iirc

a serious and fascinating fartist (Simon H.), Friday, 10 February 2017 11:08 (two months ago) Permalink

I think so. He liked Swans too (i know they're not metal but...) Lex isn't as closeminded as some think. If you give a good description of what it's like and why he might like it he will give it a listen. He listened to some pfunk I sent his way one time.

If someone whose tastes he respects likes something he will also give it a try.

Odysseus, Friday, 10 February 2017 11:29 (two months ago) Permalink

i listened to Sepultura Roots recently and fell in love with it, based on Whiney's recommendation in a similar thread (something about Groovy metal bands) can anyone recommend me more stuff like that

flopson, Friday, 10 February 2017 11:38 (two months ago) Permalink

I cant as I hated groove metal especially Pantera and the like (Though i never saw Sepultura in that mould) but I guess plenty here could recommend you what they liked.

Odysseus, Friday, 10 February 2017 11:46 (two months ago) Permalink

Corrosion Of Conformity were great and I think their pepper era stuff does count but is really good.

Some bands listed here like Mastodon and Meshuggah are def not groove metal.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_groove_metal_bands
Prong I think mightve gone in that direction but it was not their good stuff.

Odysseus, Friday, 10 February 2017 11:53 (two months ago) Permalink

early lamb of god was really great until they went groove metal imo

Odysseus, Friday, 10 February 2017 11:54 (two months ago) Permalink

Roots is excellent in parts. Far Beyond Driven is probably the Pantera album to go for in the groove-metal vein. From that wiki list, Clutch are good, i suppose. White Zombie aren't listed but aren't a million miles away.

based on "mausoleum" i'd say it's more lorena mckennit's idea of black metal!

or dead can dance, i can't decide

increasingly bonkers (rushomancy), Friday, 10 February 2017 13:45 (two months ago) Permalink

You might enjoy Sep's Chaos AD as well, more of a straight metal album but starting to incorporate the influences foun in Roots.

chap, Friday, 10 February 2017 14:18 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah, I would also look up Soulfly which is the band Max C started to follow up on Roots.

Not the same thing but Clutch's Transnational Speedway League is an absolute classic. I did not even realize Clutch had 12 albums! I'm prob way overdue to tackle their whole discography.

steely dad (Drugs A. Money), Friday, 10 February 2017 19:00 (two months ago) Permalink

That was their best album imo but also an anomaly in their discography as it was more post-hardcore than the stoner rock they became famous for

Pick one at random. They're all exactly the same.

I like the *sounds* of Myrkur but a lot of her album sounds half-finished

ultros ultros-ghali, Friday, 10 February 2017 19:26 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah I mean I thought the album was a solid B-minus but theoretically Lex wd be looking for different things out of BM than I would

steely dad (Drugs A. Money), Friday, 10 February 2017 19:33 (two months ago) Permalink

the record i heard was "mausoleum" which is her and a choir in a crypt, no metal at all. i guess it's not typical of her? but it sounds better than when she tries to do the black metal thing.

increasingly bonkers (rushomancy), Friday, 10 February 2017 19:38 (two months ago) Permalink

She should collaborate with Mesarthim on her next album

oh btw the answer to this thread is blood command

xps- i kinda figured a good groove metal album is some lightning in a bottle shit, and Roots was a 'one good album in an otherwise meritless genre' situation but i'll check some of these out, thx. enjoying Clutch rn, this music makes me lol but in a good way
