I stopped listening to a lot of bands that base every song off of hatred for a religion, I don't know I just grew out of that whole thing. Way I see it its a live and let live, I do agree that organized religion breeds corruption, however I do not believe it is right to bash ones spiritual belief. That just feeds the whole divide and conquer agenda so we always fight with each other and never come together to fix the issues of our world, I guess you could say I've grown in a way. I will say that I loved Dead by Dawn by Deicide, Evil Dead is one of my favorite horror movies ( Ive yet to see the new one) and Homage For Satan is the sound death metal should have.

I wasnt talking about the theme of hatred of religion, I meant all around hate. It works for Death Metal very well.

Thats what some of my new music is about, rejoining as a people and taking back our world. Its what we need to do and it what we should have done a LONG time ago.

You know me Nick Im all about united religions and cultures.

Two things
1. Two songs have been released off the upcoming Motorhead album "Aftershock".
Heartbreaker
Crying Shame

2. Since I know there are some people on here who are fond of them. King Crimson have gotten back together with a new lineup consisting of: Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison, second drummer Bill Rieflin of R.E.M, bassist Tony Levin, third drummer Pat Mastelotto, Mel Collins on saxophone, multi-instrumentalist Jakko Jakszvk, and (obviously) Robert Fripp on guitar.

Do you know if they are they planning on releasing any new material with that line-up?

Not that I know of. I know they're going to be touring with that line-up but as for new material I suppose anything is possible.

Also Rush are going to being going on an "extended break" til 2015 at the earliest. Geddy said it's because they've been touring a ton for the past few years and also because it's gotten to the point where he and the rest of the band hardly ever sees their families anymore so they feel they need to take a break for a bit.

Normally I'd be able to give a recommendation on this but I'm drawing a blank for some reason.
The only band I can think of is Blood Ceremony but they're more Occultish Stoneresque Psychedelic Doom Metal.

the singer can also play the flute like Ian Anderson.

I guess Uncle Acid would count as Psychedelic Stoner Doom too. Mainly on Bloodlust and Mind Control.
But they're more "Retro Doom" than anything.

I assume you already know about Boris. If you don't then you need to listen to their albums Pink and Heavy Rocks (2002) and Smile.

Otherwise, you might like Bongzilla, Truckfighters and especially Bongripper. If you haven't heard their album Satan Worshipping Doom, you need to get it and fast! Their albums Hate Ashbury and Hippie Killer are also rather good :)

Exciting news for anyone who is a fan of Slayer.
Tom Araya has announced that there is a good possibility that material which Jeff Hanneman was working on may end up on their new album.

At 10/7/13 07:45 PM, twistex wrote: Can anybody recommend bands similar to any one of these bands?

Lets see....other Electric Wizardesque bands would be:
- Windhand (especially their newest album)
- if you somehow haven't listened to them before Reverend Bizarre
- Acid King
- Ufomammut
- Belzebong
- Cough
- Church Of Misery
- Sons Of Otis
- Black Pyramid (Seriously, listen to their new album. It is one of my favorites albums that came out this year.)
Here is a link for Adversarial
Best songs (in my opinion) would be Swing The Scimitar and Onyx & Obsidian. The album opener and closer.

"Retro" bands could include stuff like:
- Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
- Jex Thoth
- Witchcraft
- Graveyard
- Blood Ceremony
- Ghost
- Hour of 13
- Castle
- The Gates Of Slumber
- The Devils Blood
- and I guess The Sword could fit in there too. Same with Wolfmother since you're asking about "Retro Rock".
- And I guess if you wanna go with more Spacey Retro Rock you could try Electric Moon or The Cosmic Dead. When it comes to those I'd say their best stuff would be on Inferno for Electric Moon and

For The Cosmic Dead I'd say go with either The Cosmic Dead, The Exalted King, or Psychonaut. Then again I love pretty much all of their stuff so it's a little hard to choose, haha.

If any of you guys are interested, I'd like to discuss both Sigh and Death. Why these two you ask? Well, because both of these bands have had prolific careers (in the case of Sigh they aren't done yet!) and also because both bands have evolved a lot through their career musicwise and have done so while keeping a good quality to their music. What I mean is that I do not want to discuss bands that started off great and ended up sucking badly. I wanted to discuss bands that evolved a lot through their career but still managed to stay good.

I'd like to know your opinions on their evolution, career, line-ups, favorite and least-favorite albums and why, etc. If you feel like doing so, you could also rank their albums from favorite to least favorite and explain why. Hopefully we could have a nice discussion in here :)

I love any chance to talk about Death. I haven't heard enough from Sigh to comment (I've only listened to the debut album... what's it called...), but I can certainly speak about what is (IMO) the best death metal band, ever.

For starters, I can safely say I like all of Death's albums. I can also state that Leprosy is above all my favorite. I hear a lot of people criticize the "excessive" blast beats on Leprosy, but I disagree. I feel that the drums are in no way excessive, no more so than the album's greatness is excessive.

That being said, my least favorite album would have to be Symbolic. The best track (again, IMO) has to be Crystal Mountain, but even that pales in comparison to other tracks off any album. In my opinion (a lot of this being opinion based), Symbolic lacks the feeling, the emphasis, dare I say the emotion of the other albums, especially Leprosy and The Sound of Perseverance.

The Sound of Perseverance is another topic I could go into entirely, but I'll keep it brief. From what I've seen, it gets a lot of crap for it's vocals (which I happen to enjoy greatly). It's different, I'll give them that. But I think it's not necessarily a "bad" different. To me, the Sound of Perseverance has a more, excuse me for using this buzzword, "epic" feel to it. Tracks that come to mind are The Flesh and the Power it Holds, The Scavenger of Human Sorrow, and Spirit Crusher. Gone were the days of the "excessive" (their words, not mine) blast beats, and in are the days of high pitched vocals, and strong power chords. And that's okay.

In the end, Death obviously had a phenomenal career. Most of the criticisms I see for the band (either by album or just in general) aren't purely bad things. The change in vocal styles across each album may bother some, but it's better than releasing a series of albums that don't differ at all. I guess it's all a matter of perspective.

I regret that I was not nearly old enough to ever see the band live (being 5 years old when the band disbanded). But, I guess in a way it's better that it ended on a high note, rather than a downward spiral.

R.I.P. Chuck.
