i know this probably isn't exactly what the OP had in mind, but whenever i think of Rap and metal i think of the Judgement Night soundtrack. IN particular the track of Onyx/biohazard. Not really metal per say, but i used to think it was pretty badass..especially since Onyx's vocals kinda have a harsh sound to them and fit well with guitars

also, Necro and Ill Bill (who are fairly well known rappers)started their musical careers as a thrash band...Injustice

Necro's current albums feature some big names too...Mike Smith, Steve Digiorgio, etc....

Cool tracks, though the second one could have worked a bit more on the guitar sound.

Antiquus, who for the most part play traditionally-styled American prog/power metal, had a lot of rap on the opening track for their latest album, which threw me for a loop when I first heard it. I hated it at first, though it's grown on me to the point where I don't mind it so much now, and the rest of the song is really awesome.

^ I have to say that that song has a really really awesome power metal chorus. The rapping seems tastefully done too; to sort of signpost the political themes it looks like that album is dealing with from the lyrics of that song, and if that's the album cover. And the lyrics certainly all sound well thought out too.

Antiquus does have really good lyrics - that album in particular is about presidential assassins (attempted or otherwise), with each song after the first one sung from the point of view of a different assassin, from Booth up through Hinckley. It's a damn good album, I've been meaning to review it but haven't gotten around to it.

That's actually a really imaginative theme to base an album around. Loads to explore there. And if that chorus (and much of the guitar parts) is representative of their usual stuff then I think they're gonna have another fan!

Pain of Salvation deserves being mentioned here. I think this is a good rapping, flows really well with the experimentation, and doesn't sound goofy.

Be sure to check out their other two albums, too. Their sophomore work, Eleutheria, is a really phenomenal slab of 80's-styled prog/power a la classic Fates Warning, and has some really amazing acoustic work to boot. Their first album is really weird but also great in its own way, very subtle and layered.

Most of everything linked in this thread is awful, but I still reckon rap vocals is something that could be incorporated into metal, more in the way that has been mentioned in regards to occasional Dying Fetus and Deicide delivery. That Necro track just sounds cheesy to me, and I don't like how everything else apart from the vocal is waaaay down in the mix. I wish I could think of something good to link to, but I'm still waiting to hear it.

Great Manes song, though this rap section feels way out of place.


Don't forget this one, from the same album:

Absolutely love this song.

I don't know if anybody else already mentioned it, but this is the first one to always come to mind. Mike's trip on this song is priceless.

EDIT: I don't know what's your opinion on Biohazard, but instantly after I posted the ST song I remebered this one. The rapped verses and the drum grooves are terrific.

The closest thing to rap that I can enjoy in metal is Corpsegrinder's vocal style. That's about it. It's not so much the style that bothers me, but the totally uninteresting subject matter it's been ruined by in the modern rap scene. :)

By that you mean the way he sings in songs like, say, Make Them Suffer?

1:58. This is what I thought of as soon as I started reading this thread. It's sooo bad.

Yeah, there were some bad things and moments on "Train of Thought", that being one of them, but overall it was a good album for me. Well, that coming from an immense DT fan, but anyway, I enjoy it and has a lot to like.

I know this isn't kosher, and just downright cheesey to me, but this is the first thing I thought of. Metalcore with rap. Honestly though, other than the Suicidal Tendencies track posted before, this is much better than some 80's sounding band with rap vocals people have been posting.

I'm going to run away in shame now.

Oh wow, that Anthrax/Beastie Boys baiting is somehow much sadder than I thought it would be. His song Dog Dead has some vocal lines that approach rap but it is executed in a more competent fashion. Still a pretty dumb track though.

Obituary's 'Bullitary' on 'Back from the dead'. Now just what the fucking hell they were thinking is beyond me. A product of its time, methinks...

I don't like rap period. Faith No More for example-I like "Out of Nowhere" but not "Epic." Blondie "Rapture"-I like the singing but not the rap part. Portishead-I like Beth Gibbons' singing but a lot of the songs have street beat samples that I don't like. I like Anthrax' first 2 albums but not their famous rap crossovers.

Ice-T rapping on Six Feet Under - One Bullet Left. I don't know why I enjoy it so much maybe because it fits the whole vibe of the song but I actually enjoy that one.

Rap and Metal CANNOT be mixed. Its not acceptable to Metal to mix with this "yo yo" subculture. I listen to the 2 Anthrax rap songs , but I can´t say I really like it ...
