I should listen to this one, to see if it's worth seing them live in 15 days (with Origin)

What are your opinions on this list? Is there anything you'd like to see added or taken out or placed differently?

Meh. I didn't listen to much stuff from 2013, so I can't really complain about anything not being on the list or anything.

Same here. About listening to them. I'm not seeing them live at any point in the near future.

Meh. I didn't listen to much stuff from 2013, so I can't really complain about anything not being on the list or anything.

Kinda the same here. Though out of that list I can honestly say I have not listened to at least one track from 4 of the 10 albums listed.
Those albums being: Queensryche, Ihsahn, Dream Theater, and The Ocean.
I have Aftershock, 13, and Ultraviolet. The best song off of Ultraviolet (in my opinion) is Quicksand.

for some reason I can't seem to find the studio version of that song on YouTube....

Out of curiosity, why is it hipster? I'm not sure I'd call this album black metal really, sounds like post-metal shoegaze, but kinda an expansion on black metal. Do they dress like hipsters and cycle to gigs?

lol at the amount of metal genres nowadays, growing every year

I don't know. Apparently some black metal fans hate blackgaze, cascadian black metal, atmospheric black metal and the likes. But these guys have also released an album that is pink, they sing about emo stuff, they look hipster, etc.

I like their stuff really, and I don't ming the genre it falls under. They just seem to get a lot of hate from a certain type of metal fans.

Ya know. My sister and I were looking through my vinyls yesterday and I pulled out my copy of Bat Out Of Hell by Meatloaf.

she apparently didn't know I had it abut whatever

Well I handed it to her and she insisted on playing it on my record player. But before she did she looked at the album art and she goes to me "Ya know. This has to be one of the most metal album covers I've ever seen. But it's really deceptive once you actually listen to it."
In a way I kinda agree with her.
The opening title track has to be one of the best instances of "Opera Rock" I've ever heard though.

Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell

The title track, I suppose, would be what some people think of as heavy (like my wife, who finds AC/DC to be far, far too heavy).

The rest of the album plays out mainly ballads and old timey rock n roll.

I remember listening to that record when my brother brought up some of his friends. One of them brought his girlfriend. Her brother had died in a car crash the month before and Meat Loaf was his favorite band. She just burst out crying at Bat Out Of Hell. I felt so fucking terrible for her.

I can't relate to the album though. Love and sex? What the hell are those?

Yep it is. I've had to sit through that album a bunch of times when I was younger. My mom loves

Thats....I don't even know. I feel bad about that now. And it was probably twice as bad as it would have been if you were listening to a different Meatloaf song because of what Bat Out Of Hell is about....

I can't relate to the album though. Love and sex? What the hell are those?

Same here, haha.

I've dropped a thread in the General forum to ask about this, but I doubt that I'll ever get good answers. I just wanted to know which ones of the albums by UFO were the best.

I only own Phenomenon and I love it, so I was hoping that I could get my hands on more of their material and I was just wondering where I should start.

Thanks!!

Red Fang have officially released a new music video for the song Blood Like Cream.
It's pretty much "Red Fang vs. The Beer Zombies".
At least this is a music video that mainly focuses on beer where they DON'T die.

referring to the video for Prehistoric Dog

Though Fred Armisen does.....

Don Anderson announced yesterday that Agalloch were now recording their fifth full-lenght album. I can't be the only one who's pumped by these good news :)

I think Agalloch have definitely made it's place among the greats of our time. There is nothing they've ever released that wasn't inspired and fulfilling. I'm hoping for another amazing album!

Oooh cool. I recently started getting into them more than I have in the past. So I may not be as "pumped" as you or Sense-Offender, but I still can't wait to hear this.

A thread in General got me curious.
How much music does everyone here have (hour wise)?
And then out of that how much of it is Metal or would be considered Metal?
I have roughly 1,500 hours of music but only 966 of that would be considered Metal.
The rest is Alt. Rock, Grunge, Classic Rock, Prog. Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Stoner Rock, Shoegaze, Hard Rock, Indie, and Punk.

Total:
34 days, 9 hours, 34 minutes and 57 seconds

Metal:
20 day, 7 hours, 45 minutes and 36 seconds

So that's somewhere between 13 and 14 days of music that isn't metal. And the genres are pretty diversified.

Total Length: 3 weeks, 0 days, 15 hours, 25 minutes, 27 seconds. So, that's about 519 hours of just music.
I also have a shitload of Radio Plays (or "Full Cast Audio Dramas"): about 540 hours.

But I can't say how much of the music could be considered metal. I just keep everything in one playlist (except for the Audio Dramas, I keep a few seperate playlists for those). A rough guess is that about half to 2/3 is metal. The rest is hip hop (mostly german stuff), punk (again, mostly german stuff and mostly political punk. No "Blink 182" crap punk), general rock... and stuff like Radiohead and Björk, where I wouldn't know in which category I should put those.

I listen to Misfits a lot, have yet to give Sex Pistols a shot (well, other songs than Anarchy in the UK) and I never heard of Screeching Weasel. :(
But as I've said, I mostly listen to political punk like Slime (Second album "Yankees raus" on youtube)

It's them doing a cover. But you get the general idea as to what they sound like.

I'll check that out now.

Thanks!

My Christmas was pretty cool, both Christmas eve with my girlfriend's family and the morning of Christmas (more like afternoon, really). I've received and given quite a few gifts and I'm really happy of how things went with all the good people I was with (boy, I drank too much beer and wine, though).

One of my gifts is kind of relavent to mention in the Metal Hell. I don't know if you guys remember this Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell album by Ulver, but my parents offered me the book it was inspired by. And I just started reading it. It's not really a book with a standard narrative but rather a work of philosophy and poetry on good, evil, reason, etc. by the English romantic poet William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827).

I like it so far. I'd recommand it, and so would I recommand the album by Ulver.
