Ufomammut is made of pure divinity.

Well good. I recommended bands to you that you already knew, hahaha.
I'm friends with the bassist from Dark Buddha Rising on last.fm.

And Samothrace is brutal! Never heard about them, very cool concept!

Indeed! I don't remember exactly how I heard of them. But I know its because I was reading some reviews on Metal-Archives a few days ago and saw someone mention that a band I listen to sounded mildly similar to them. So I decided to check them out.

I think it sounds bretty cool m8. Though it almost seems they're taking it a little too seriously.

Do we have any Stratovarius fans inna house? What did you guys think of Nemesis?

I really need to show you guys this.

I don't know if you're aware that in Portugal we have a unique and traditional type of music called Fado. Well, this band managed to mix Metal and Fado, and this song is pretty damn solid!

It's mostly used in Fado par excellence, though Fado is known for its unique way of singing, very emotive, showing suffering, they abuse in vibratos. Nevertheless, I prefer instrumental fado haha, if you're interested you may check out artists like, Camane (Camané but I think the acute accent appears all fucked up), Amalia Rodrigues (Amália), Dulce Pontes, Carlos do Carmo... And for the master of instrumental Fado and portuguese guitar, Carlos Paredes.

It's one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity also!

Hmm...I'll check some of that stuff out.
Though at the moment I still have quite a long list of bands and shit I need to check out as well.

Hello Metal Hell! It's time I joined a group. I like the heavy metal genre but nothing darker/heavier than that (such as death metal). I hope you'll have me.

One of my favorites of all time: AC/DC - Highway to Hell

AC/DC
Aerosmith
Black Sabbath
Guns n' Roses
Motley Crue

Gonna be honest. Some of these bands, I only like a few of their songs. I don't automatically like a band's every song because I got hooked on one in particular. AC/DC is the exception. I think I like EVERY ONE of their songs.

Also, I don't limit myself specifically to metal. I believe sticking with a single genre is a form of deprivation. I like other genres, rock&roll (especially metal) definitely wins out though.

Out of these 5 bands, only Black Sabbath is a metal band. They've basically created the genre named doom metal. The four other bands are all hard rock bands. Are there any other metal bands you like?

If not, maybe you'd like Judas Priest, Edguy, Accept, Stratovarius or Anthrax.

I started getting into music pretty late and my library has been growing slowly so because I'm uneducated I'm not going to argue. I'll just say that I used various sites to confirm these bands were metal. To me, the metal sub-genre is a gray area that's not easily defined. I started checking out your recomendations... I've really been missing out. I'll report back later when I've had my fill.

Well, bands like AC/DC have had influence on metal (musicians like Dave Mustaine from Megadeth list them as an influence) but they are definitely hard rock bands. The riff structures, chord progresions, etc. all hard rock. Not that metal is easily defined, but these bands you've listed are commonly known as hard rock bands. And even in the genre, some bands have more in common with metal, such as UFO or Deep Purple.

A good metal website would be Metal ArchivesMetal Archives. I recommand visiting it sometime :)

I don't expect you to listen to it all, but pick out a random 10 min segment and I'd love to here opinions. (on both albums) two of my favorites. I can't stand just regular ol metal anymore, shit is boring as fuck.

I find myself unable to appreciate any japanese band, and it's not even racism, but all japanese music I've listened to just sounds so automatic and devoid of soul to me. I may like the melodies, but the way they're played is awfully soulless, even if you hadn't told us those guys were japanese, I would recognize the sound just for the lack of... humanity in it! It's like someone composed a song and asked robots to play it, but... it's in fact humans playing who sound like robots doing so. The only exception may be Sigh, not a great fan, but the little I've heard from them is actually very good.

Well the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about japanese music is videogame music, j-rock, visual kei and stuff like that.

Oh okay. I'm mildly okay with some j-rock, though I'm not the biggest fan of j-pop.
