Any kind of recommandation linked to these genres would be higly appreciated. I already know of Boris, Reverend Bizarre, Warning, Minsk, Ascend and Earth. Soooo, no need to list these.

Whenever I see Minsk I always think of Bossk as well, so that would be one. If you're looking for some Funeral Doom you should check out some Ahab, their album The Divinity of Oceans is brilliant, one particular song that always crushes me is the title track, just beastly.

Another band you might not know of is Black Cobra, they're a 2 piece but make an absolutely huge sound. A good album to start with would be Bestial, which also has my favourite songs by them on it, Omniscient and Sugar Water. I saw them live supporting Weedeater and they crushed me.

That's also another band if you haven't heard them already, Weedeater, who have a new album coming out some time soon I think, but in the mean time you should check out God Luck and Good Speed.

I second both these bands.

I still enjoy my CoB stuff every once in a while, and I know that my metal tastes are not limited to a few bands or a few metal genres.

My taste is universal law.

Nah in all seriousness I was talking about how JUST because we'd like to think metalheads all have GREAT taste, their are people who:
A.) Just listen to a genre or two. Like thrash/oldschool death metal elitists, black metal elitists, melodic death metal elitists, power metal elitists, etc.
B.) Only listen to the popular bands, and don't bother spending their time looking into metal bands that aren't selling out 1000+ capacity venues.
C.) Knows a ton of bands, but only really knows a few songs by each - but decides to go to concerts all the time and stuff for no apparent reason. (There's a lot of these kids in my area of the country, but I don't mind - it means more people at concerts giving bands money)

I wasn't passing judgment on anyone or anything. But COB and their fans, fuck that shit. They're the only band I truly dislike with a passion.

Even brokeNCYDE I at least get a good laugh out of.

Most "metalheads" either only like the mainstream bands(I use mainstream loosely, even bands like Edguy are mainstream) OR limit themselves to only a certain genre or two and don't look beyond that.
You seem to believe that your own tastes represent the ideal of good metal music.

This! Damn dude, taste in music is subjective, quality may not, but taste is.

A thing you should know, is that everybody in the Metal Hell enjoys some of the mainstream metal and some of the underground metal.

Yeah, as if only listening to underground stuff makes you more trve and kvlt and as if being trve and kvlt was important. Who cares if you're trve and kvlt, there's nothing more important than having pleasure with what you're listening too, whether it's mainstream or underground.

And I know that we all have our own "favorite bands we like to hate". I don't like Slayer,

Lol, I also can't stand Slayer, not saying they don't have some good songs, but for me it all sounds like "shred kerry king shred faster". It lacks of feeling for me.

I still enjoy my CoB stuff every once in a while, and I know that my metal tastes are not limited to a few bands or a few metal genres.

Yeah the problem is the extreme generalization of the fans and putting everyone in the same bag, I love COB, but I listen to almost everything in Metal, if not everything. I may not like a band but I don't really hate any band, and I can't see no point in hating a band, and building an argument expressing my hate against a band, it's useless, a total waste of time, time you could use listening to a band you like. And just because someone is obsessed with a band, that doesn't mean they may not like any other band and be totally closed-minded, in my case I'm obsessed with Insomnium. And I can give you an example of a guy I know, the dude is totally obsessed with COB, he even asked Alexi to accept him as a son on facebook (well that was a little bit silly lol), but he and his band, Scarscythe, played a cover in one concert, and it was not COB, it was Hypocrisy.

I love trip hop. The only dubstep I know and like is some of Breakage's dubstep tracks, though.

Can anyone recommend me some good ol' Sludge or Prog metal?

and stoner, I'm guessing.

This is for you, too, Duff, since you asked, also.

Lesbian
Keelhaul
Rwake
Acid Bath
Kongh
Mammatus
Asteroid
Spirit Caravan
Melvins
Orange Goblin
Behold! the Monolith
Dragonauta
Sons of Otis
Zebulon Pike
Psychotic Waltz
Pain of Salvation
Queensryche
Apokatastasia
Gonin-Ish
Gordian Knot
Planet X

and more doom just for Duff:

Pentagram
Trouble
Yearning
St. Vitus

And there's a newer band called Black Math Horseman that seems good. I'll listen to their album and give my final judgement later. I've had it for a while but never got around to it.

Is anyone else starting to notice a trend here in the sounds of these somewhat new bands?

I'm noticing a rise in the popularity of the sort of sound, but it's been around a while. It's cool that the stoner and sludge type stuff is getting more attention.

AniMetal is not the kind of guy who listens to underground stuff only. That's also not exactly what I meant. Cause it is true that there are kids who have no kind of musical knowledge amons metalheads. They do exist. Mostly CoB fans, Maiden fans... You know... Bands who are too big commercialy, and who get a shitload of diehard fanboys who cannot appreciate anything else...

There is not much bands I hate in Metal, but Groove Metal, as a whole... sucks balls !!!

Here's a fun challenge: Find the silliest metal music video out there. To make the challenge even better, try to avoid mentioning Immortal.

My find is Hell's On Earth As It Is In Hell. 50 year old rockers with the worst and most laughable makeup you could ever imagine. Do they want to be taken seriously ro what?

I love their music. I missed them the last time they came around with Dimmu Borgir and Enslaved.

Great :)

But I have to add this one

If anyone could find that awesome black metal video, in which there is a bunch of guys playing their instruments in the woods. but when the vocalist is not singing, he just like, wait there with an axe and a grim face. That was just great. Gotta find this one back !!!

It's sexy.

I just remembered I was going to buy another band shirt yesterday from the only shop in my city that sells them, and even though 99% of it is full of insanely generic emo scenekid drop dead bollocks, it actually had some awesome shirts like Municipal Waste, Death, Aborted and The Black Dahia Murder, I wanted the MW shirt but it was only in large and I aint no fat motherfucker. psh.

Picked up a flyer for the Lazarus A.D show here in Norwich soon, can't fuckin wait, I'm just gonna get really fuckin drunk and mosh hard, my first thrash band live y'see.

Death has great riffs. Leprosy is my favorite Death album by far. Pull The Plug was usually their encore song and has an awesome riff.

Anyone here heard of the Japanese death metal band Vortex? They're severely underrated and I love them.
