Great choices, seriously :) I'd see myself with an axe, cutting trees down to Immortal, Sigh or Morbid Saint. Great list, great choice :) ThatâEUTMs some taste you have here!

Thanks! I tried to have some diversity, so I left off a few albums that I really enjoyed. So sad. I wanted to fit Bathory in there somewhere, but couldn't find a spot.

Cultural differences probably make it impossible for me to give you any good recommandations. What's your field of study?

I'm a Philosophy major with a minor in Health Care Administration. I plan on going into medical ethics after I get my master's degree.

That's the point of the process :P It's heart-breaking when you have 500+ albums to chose from and you can only pick 15.

Well that surely is interresting :) I never knew that! Next fall I'm going to start my master degree in political science. But right now I'm thinking about switching to sociology since my master's thesis will most likely mix elements of political science, sociology of domination, sociolinguistic and gender studies. Plus, a sociology professor already showed interest in my project!

Tech death band Anata apparently broke up. This saddens me because The Conductor's Departure is one of my technical death metal albums of all time.

Going through my list, I'm wondering why I removed Blotted Science - The Machinations Of Dementia of it. It's one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. Maybe I'd make some room for it by removing either Agalloch - The Mantle or Cynic - Focus. But that would be a fucking tough choice...

Hey, I am going to blatantly self advertise right now. A good friend from high school has started a music review website called Target Audience Reviews that I occasionally contribute to (so far I have two reviews up, but they should go up in number and frequency once finals are done). It's gonna be most rock and metal, so please check it out! We would appreciate the views. Also, this is where I am gonna start posting the Metal Calender once January comes around (and barring anymore outlandish technical difficulties). Thanks!

Some sad news (in my opinion), the channel "BlackMetalAlbums" on YouTube has been taken down after operating since mid August/September of last year, posting well over a hundred different albums from a variety of black metal subgenres.

I found a lot of really awesome bands that I had previously not heard of from there, and it's sad to see it go. There's other channels that carry a similar moniker and upload similar videos, but they are of lesser quality IMO.

I recieved my first full paycheck from my new job a while back. And what do you do with your first earned money? Why, you spent it, of course! I bought myself a nice new guitar: Ibanez STM2-SPB. Yeah, it's the DragonForce signature model, but it's a great guitar anyway. Especially since I only own two cheap guitars (Ken Rose and Fender Squire) that in no way can compete with a guitar that costs a thousand euros... :D

Nice axe dude, looks fine! I remember I wanted a guitar with that shape when I was a System of a Down fanboy haha, lost my interest though, but that guitar looks awesome, congratulations on your new acquisition!

Yeah, in my country, Floyd Rose is called "Freud Los", which means: "You will have NO FUN at all with a tremolo system this shitty!" haha. (actually "Freudlos" just means: No fun ;) )
But the strings are locked tight. I can use the tremolo as much as I want, the guitar won't lose it's tuning. AWESOME!

I am. Metalcore is a genre that suffers a lot from it's popularity. So many bands, produce so many generic and boring core albums, it ends up shadowing the good albums.
Would bands like Born Of Osiris count as prog deathcore or somethin' along those lines?

Yes, Born of Osiris is sick. If you dig them you'd probably dig this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJuU-zjJMyk

I suppose thats like...the only good thing about Floyd Roses. Though it doesn't hurt to have to tune your guitar....

The bands Jex Thoth and Blood Ceremony have both released new music recently.

And for any fans of Saint Vitus, they're giving away a free downloadable live EP that includes live versions of the songs: Mystic Lady, The Bleeding Ground, Born Too Late.

Each of these words imply a lot of political, social, economical and psychological elements. So it's rather difficult to give a simpe explanation that would fit all of these words and what they imply.

But take nationalism, state, etc. These concepts imply identity and the will of individuals and groups of individuals to gather assemble under a common identity they share. I do not think nationalism in itself is a bad thing. In my field of study, nationalism is often considered as a pejorative word. But I disagree. Right now there are historicaly dominated groups fighting to rebuild their common identity. Natives, females, minorities, etc. And in a way, nationalism if it doesn't imply chauvinism, racism and a feeling of superiority or even supremacy shouldn't be considered as a bad thing. Right now in provinces and regions like Quebec in Canada or Catalonia in Spain, there are strong nationalist movements and these are fighting to rebuild and to increase the status of historicaly dominated nations.

As for states. I think they still need to exist today. Your picture suggests some kind of world-wide communist or anarcho-communist global system. Of course, in an ideal world minorities wouldn't suffer from the will of majorities. But as for now, we see how natives, linguistic or ethnic minorities get threated even in the "most democratic countries" (and I use the word democracy loosely here...) and I think that having these groups somewhat separated, or at least having decentralized political instances could help them get their interests respected a little more. I'm not favoring some kind of ethnonationalist states limiting contacts between people, for this would favor chauvinism and probably wars and missunderstanding of other cultures. So states... not ideal... but kind of necessary... at least in our world.

Anyway, not going to saturate the Metal Hell with political and sociological debates :P If you want to join the Metal Hell, list us a 10 bands from your library. I do want to inform you before you do so that you should avoid deathcore, metalcore and the likes when making your list. Thanks :)

Theres another new Black Sabbath song. "Methademic"
I think it sounds okay. I seriously hope the studio version sounds better than this because Ozzy's vocals seem to progressively get worse throughout the video.

All right for Arch Enemy, Slayer, Metallica, Maiden and Sabaton, but like I said earlier avoid listing bands like
Slipknot - Nu Metal
FFDP - Metalcore
Black Veil Brides - Post-Hardcore/Screamo
Bring Me The Horizon - Deathcore

These genres aren't what we are looking for in the Metal Hell. But judging from the rest of your list, I believe you would still fit in.

So as one of the horsemen of the Metal Hell, I allow you in. Enjoy your stay!

Oh! And by the way, I see you like Power Metal and Melodic Death Metal. So here are some recommandations for both genres:

Power Metal:
Jacobs Dream
Sonata Arctica
Voyager
Labyrinth
Altaria
At Vance
Cellador
Helloween

Melodic Death Metal:
Arsis
Darkane
Kalmah (one of my all time favorite bands)
Dark Tranquillity
Insomnium
Nightrage
Scar Symmetry

If you get a chance to listen to any of those bands, tell me what you think of them!

Lately I've been stuck on Zyklon. The blend of death metal, black metal, and futuristic quasi-industrial themes seems just too irresistable right now. And, on the plus side, it appears the band does not take themselves seriously. At all.

Not particularly. It's kinda one of those gray area things in the case of Deathcore. However, in the case of "nu metal" and screamo, it's a clear cut case. I say "nu metal" in quotations, because it's not really metal. It's influenced by metal, to be sure, but a better moniker would be nu rock. Screamo is a blend of hardcore and emo; not particularly metal (hardcore punk and emo rock =/= metal).

I don't want to be a douche about this matter, and I'm not insulting either of those genres. But we gotta draw the line somewhere, and we've found what we feel is a good standard and we're sticking with it.
