I've listened to "Origin" by Machinae Supremacy.
Does it counts as a metal? This band is on Encycloapedia Metallum so probably yes.
PS: That chick on front cover looks cute. I'm wondering what's her name...

R.I.P. - Smoke & Lightning
I can't place where I've heard the vocal melody from the verses but it sounds like something I've heard before.

The entirety of the Clubs & Crews section is pretty much dead. Flash is dead and Newgrounds has extremely low traffic compared to how it was in the early 2000's. We're lucky that 4 or 5 people a week come and post in here :P

As for metal music, I want to hear your opinions on studio bands that you'd love to see perform live.

There are quite a few bands that only ever made studio records but that never (or hardly every) played live.

Here are some of my personal picks:

Blotted Science, the project of the great Ron Jarzombek, a mastermind of prog, guitar virtuoso, and amazing song-writer. This is his most interesting project, the most accomplished. It mixed death metal with instrumental prog. Jarzombek managed to surround himself with geniuses of death metal music as well for this project, getting Alex Webster, bassist of Cannibal Corpse and also Charlie Zeleny from Behold... The Arctopus on the drums (and now Hannes Grossman, ex-Obsura, ex-Necrophagist).

Darkthrone, the unholy black metal duo. They released some of the most amazing and iconic black metal to the world, but never really played any of their material live. Enslaved, another amazing black metal band, did play some of their material live throughout their career, and once or twice with Nocturno Culto, if I'm not mistaken.

I legit sat and thought about this for a solid 20 minutes and cannot think of any outside obvious ones. And out of those I can't imagine many being able to properly play their stuff live because it either wouldn't work or it can't work.

What do you consider to be obvious ones than? One man bands like Burzum maybe? Or two men bands like Forefather? Couldn't these bands get live musicians to play with?

Otherwise, what are the bands that couldn't work live in your opinion?

New Electric Wizard song.
See You In Hell
Some people have said they can't get it to play in their country because they're outside the US. I'm HOPING that it's fine now but I have no idea. It's definitely an Electric Wizard song but it's more...bluesy I guess? Like it's still heavy but it has a blues edge to it. But it also feels like something is "missing" in there.

Yeah pretty much. But it's more so that I can't imagine them being able to get the right atmosphere.
And I also can't imagine anyone wanting to PLAY with Varg so..

Otherwise, what are the bands that couldn't work live in your opinion?

It's more of bands that have one or two members but either: I can't see anyone wanting to play live with them, they have no intention of playing live, or the band relies too much on "studio magic" or outside musicians and therefore the band wouldn't really be able to do what they do on the album in a live setting.

Can't see the video :/

But Electric Wizard have been going down this more psychedelic rock/blues rock path for a while now. I liked it on Witchcult Today, but I'll have to listen to this new material to really know.

Varg has a massive following actually :P And I'm not about to say that the guy is an angel or defend him in any way, but I doubt he'll ever kill someone again. He's an old guy making YouTube videos and living his survivalist life with his French wife and kids. He's not the arsonist black metal kid of the 90's anymore.

For the "no intention of playing live", that's kind of the point of my post though. It's something we'd like to see happening, not something that's going to happen. But what bands do you think wouldn't work live otherwise?

Well it IS apparently on Spotify. But I don't have Spotify. A "secret group" I'm a member of on Facebook made an account made an account for anyone on there who wants to listen to it. I can PM you the deets if you don't have a Spotify.

Varg has a massive following actually :P And I'm not about to say that the guy is an angel or defend him in any way, but I doubt he'll ever kill someone again.

Yeah that IS true.. though it feels like there are more than a few people that don't exactly "line up" with his ideologies haha.

For the "no intention of playing live", that's kind of the point of my post though. It's something we'd like to see happening, not something that's going to happen. But what bands do you think wouldn't work live otherwise?

Eh fair enough. Though after sitting down and thinking about it technically most bands could play live. Ya know unless "important" band members or almost all/all members are dead. So bands like Bathory wouldn't be able to play live seeing as Quorthon was Bathory.

Hello, great rebellious and scary metal listeners.

I listen to a big ol' bunch of music, but when it comes to metal I always get stuck in that little black metal bubble. Starting to feel like I'm missing out on a lot of great stuff, so I'm coming here to humbly request some recommendations to GET MYSELF OUTTA THE DUNGEON. I don't need you to keep "essential albums" or "entry points" in mind, just give me your fav records that I MUST listen to be a TRVE METAL FAN in your eyes.

This is my RYM if you want to see if I've heard something before you pass it to me.

thank you all and hail satan 666 or whatever

Anything but black metal, I've got enough of that.

I'm a huge death metal fan, so I'm gonna start there.

Starting off with most of Bolt Thrower's catalog. Everything they ever did is amazing. But if I have to pick just a few, I highly recommand the second one: Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness. This is when they started moving away from their grindcore roots towards death metal, but the grindcore elements are still very much there and complement the whole thing amazingly.

Then they have released a few amazing albums, such as Warmaster and The IVth Crusade. Which are both fucking amazing in their own rights. Their last album, Those Once Loyal.

Cannibal Corpse is an all around amazing band. I have a soft spot for their albums Tomb of the Mutilated, Bloodthirst, Kill and Evisceration Plague. Classic death metal. Very riff oriented, lots of great bass guitar, and every album feels and sound different.

In modern death metal there is Blood Red Throne. Their album Altered Genesis is iconic. It is everything that's amazing about modern death metal. They have other great releases that I highly recommend, such as Affiliated with the Suffering, Souls of Damnation and Brutalitarian Regime.

Of course I recommend the entirety of Death's catalog, although I'm not a huge fan of Individual Thought Patterns. Scream Bloody Gore, Human and Symbolic are amazing records!

If you like the album Human, try the album Focus by Cynic. Two of the guys who played on Human have writen and recorded Focus. Great prog death/jazz fusion record.

Do you know Morbid Angel? You should. Their first record, Altars of Madness, is genre defining.

If you like technical and brutal stuff, try Origin's Antithesis and Fleshgod Apocalypse's Oracles. But stay away from the rest of FA's discog. It's shit...

A lot of people overlook Benighted's work. They play a chaotic, brutal and insane kind of death metal. Try Insane Cephalic Production and Icon. Great records.

Cryptosy's first two records are also very raw and perfectly crafted records. None So Vile is my favorite out of the two.

And here's a few more if you're interested
Quo Vadis - Day into Night
Beyond Creation - The Aura
Gojira - From Mars to Sirius
Demilich - Nespith
Decapitated - Winds of Creation
Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
Funebrarum - The Sleep of Morbid Dreams
Nader Sadek - In The Flesh
Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
Decapitated - The Negation
Necrophagist - Unset of Putrefaction
Chthe'ilist - Amechth'ntaas'm'rriachth
Gorguts - The Erosion of Sanity (not Obscura, regardless of what others say)
Kronos - Titan's Awakening

And I'll do another genre another day :P

Hell yeah. Saw them in Connecticut. They had this hydraulic air shit shooting out in time with the beats at certain moments. I wished they would do Global Warming and Low Hands, but they played a lot of favs like L'Enfant Sauvage, Ocean Planet, and Oroborus, which was the "finale" (except for the couple of encores). Mario's drum solo was pretty sweet. He also switched places with Joe briefly and played guitar and did death growls. I kinda missed out on Torche's set cuz I was at the bar the whole time waiting for my shots and beer, but they sounded good. I also got a Magma shirt.

Anyone else check out the new Electric Wizard album?
I've been a fan of them for YEARS now but.. I don't know. Something just didn't click with me. The opening track (the single they released) and the last song are really the only ones that stood out to me. Literally every other track felt like one long song that I just DID NOT hear the ending to because they all blended together or they sounded different enough to tell where the previous track ended but it was already close to the end of the album. Overall I'd recommend it if you REALLY want to listen to the new EW album, but to me it's meh even compared to Time to Die or Black Masses. Probably their weakest album to date.

Haven't been on here in quite some time. How's everyone doing?

I pretty much only listen to black metal now. Every now and then I'll throw in some Bolt Thrower and some Kreator, but otherwise it's strictly underground raw black metal.

Anyone ever hear of these guys? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nus9AuM7YxY

Not really too underground nor raw but still sick nonetheless. I hope they get bigger and eventually come tour here in the US.

I like whats going on instrumentally. Reminds me of Inquisition a lil bit. However, the vocalist feels way too drowned out in the mix imo.

Hmm, interesting. I always liked when the vocals sound slightly drowned out. Makes the music sound more obscure.

Speaking of Inquisition...saw them a few months ago. They were absolutely sick as always. And got a chance to meet Dagon, the guitarist/vocalist. You'd never know this guy did Inquisition if you saw him on the streets.
