Definitely check out Vulcain too, they're often called 'France's Motorhead'.

Also Baphomet's Blood. Sounds like it ought to be some black metal band, but in reality it's an absurdly fun dirty heavy/speed band with huge Motorhead influences, also early Running Wild influences. Singer sounds like Lemmy taking a shit.

I think the vocalist of Blizzard sounds more like 'Lemmy taking a shit' to be honest:



It seems that too many metalpunk bands try to pull off a Lemmy voice but it doesn't work very well. Inepsy is an obvious exception.

That just sounds more death metal than Lemmy to me, frankly.

Listening to some old gems, Grudge's sole album finally clicked with me (thanks fsm), although ultimately I don't think I'll ever really get into LotCA, just too shrieky and weird. Slauter Xstroyes is doing more for me as well, I'm listening to the debut rather than Free the Beast, it seems a bit more accessible. Those riffs are definitely pretty fucking godly. Blasting some Cyperus too, thanks Xeogred. Definitely some cool stuff here that I overlooked/needed more time to digest.

There are a lot of bands that have tried to emulate MR's sound, but they generally go for a more traditional metal approach. Nobody's really tried to emulate their thrash albums, which admittedly is a shame. However, if you like MR, check out Longings Past, Battle Ram's 2003 demo, Wotan's debut, Ancient Wisdom's demo, Wrathblade's debut, and everything from Epic Irae/Quicksand Dream. Definitely some good stuff there.

Been listening to Conception again. In Your Multiude is such a great album. Love the energetic riffy approach the band went for on that one. Its other albums aren't bad either but just not as consistent sadly.

The razor-like riffs in those first couple of songs on IYM are some of the nastiest Roy Khan sang over. Probably my favorite Khan album next to Black Halo.

Thanks for all the recs guys, going through them now.

I've heard syphilitic vaginas and speedwolf before, but both are awesome bands!

Funny enough I vastly prefer LotCA myself to Grudge. Grudge is still awesome but a very rare mood deal for me, when I'm always up for some LotCA. Come to think of it it just hit me that's like some of the only stuff out there a bit comparable to Dark Age's EP and vice versa. Stuff like this is a damn home run for me! Dark Age probably wins between those two for me though, a bit more Sacred Oath-in-your-face with the lead guitars.
:np:

Vocals like the LotCA / Dark Age stuff are fucking amazing to me, haha.

Eternal Champion seem like another good up and coming band, happened upon this song, the band aren't on the archives yet but apparently they're releasing an EP soon. If it's all as good as this song, it'll definitely be some good stuff. Pretty solid epic metal in the vein of Battle Ram and Wrathblade.

Scalzi was rude when I saw them live :( tried to talk to him but he brushed me off (could have been because they were on a tight schedule though).

That is, until I yelled "SKULLFUCKER, FUCK HER IN THE HEAD" because one of the guitarists was wearing a Brocas shirt. Scalzi went on a rant about how the Brocas guys were old enough to be my grandparents, and he was old enough to be my uncle. Then he started calling himself Uncle Mike. :lol:

Ended up smoking a J with the bassist Adrian though, he was nice. We talked about Rainbow!


Was this a new event? I feel like I've read this exact story a couple years ago, but from the perspective of another fan in the audience, with the same Skullfucker thing happening. :lol:


Nah, I've told the story before. It's one of my favorite band anecdotes ;)

This band Eternal Champion is playing with Manillla Road/Speedwolf/Satan's Satyrs at Chaos in Tejas, pretty fucking cool:

http://youtu.be/8HN4uFLrDbc

I am ultra impressed. Can't figure out who they sound like, but really digging it. Cauldron Born? Isen Torr? Medieval Steel? Hahah, not exactly. Excited for a really good Texas trad metal band, we have a massive lack of trad metal around here.

By the way, anyone have Borrowed Time's cd-r demo from 2010? Or a rip of it? I got one when I went to MDF, but I'm confused because it doesn't match the tracklisting on MA, and it's also got some strange sound artifacts...is it my rip? Not sure where I put the actual cd. Mine has the 4 songs it's supposed to have and also a 9 minute live track where they play Burning Mistress/Sailing.

edit: since I haven't been very active in here might as well cram a bunch of shit into one post! I've been on a fantastic diet of Othyrworld, Talisphere and Oracle today. \m/

New Rocka Rollas song!! Simple straight forward metal, nothing fancy: I'll leave the suprises until the album comes out :) not that it's so much more fancy than simple metal but at least there's some longer songs and calmer parts and shit that wasn't even thought of on the debut:

So I hadn't looked up much going on with Satan's Host recently and had a look on youtube today and found this Whole Show uploaded two days ago from a recent gig with decent sound quality, also mentions straight up that they have an "upcoming album" which gives me hope the new one is released soon.

On another note someone uploaded this poor quality video of them in the 80's playing Black Steele.

EDIT: What's with Harry's new mustache haahha.

Just out of curiosity, are there any good traditional metal bands from The Netherlands?

Yes, there are several in fact. Angus and Vault are probably the best in my opinion, Dark Wizard and Valkyrie are pretty good too. Check out the debut albums from Angus and Vault, Dark Wizard's debut EP, and Valkyrie's demo.

Guys, as some of you may know, Animetal USA likes to play other bands' riffs on their covers. Do any of you know if the riff at 3:22 belongs to another band? What band is it?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xj_JYKb8N0o

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Btw, if you know any other song with this type of riffage, please, show them to me. (You know, as Kill the King by Dio)

If anybody wants to do me a favor, I'm hankering for new trad metal and I'd like to know if I'm missing anything essential:

Do you mean new as in modern, or just new to you? Because people were just talking about Dutch metal a few posts up, and Vault is one of my favorite trad metal bands. No joke, they're one of the biggest hidden gem bands in all of metal.

New to me. Actually looking more for 80s/90s stuff than modern stuff. I'll check Vault out.

Check out Martyr and Defender (bit more USPM-ish) too for more top notch Dutch stuff. When the Netherlands did it right they were damn good.

Defender are still my favorite:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f12rZZGaGJI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxXA7uyew9k - cool as hell how lead driven this one is, can anyone think of other songs similar in style?

some of my stuff went the way of the dinosaurs when my old HDD died. I need to get Lords of the Crimson Alliance again.

Don't have most of my music with me at the moment, but a few bands which don't seem to be present on that list:

Aerian Rage - fairly rough, USPM-ish metal, recently got some of their demo work rereleased by StormSpell. Sample.

Midnight Darkness - solid, though not entirely consistent, heavy metal. When they're good, though, they're definitely worth a listen. Sample.

Genghis Khan - very good aggressive USPM, seem to have gone on to form a band named False Witness which I haven't listened to as yet. Sample.

Throes of Sanity - presumably somebody read 'The Republic' and thought it was exceptionally metal. 'The Upheaval' is a strong album about one's will belonging to the abstract unknown among other things, and does well at a fairly unique style with influences from both prog and USPM but not really fitting in either per se. Sample. The whole album seems to be online in mp3 format on the band's ]website.

Omega - this is often counted as NWOBHM, which might be why it didn't get into that list, but nonetheless it's some fairly unique, slow metal, with strong lyrics and just about the most appropriate cover art possible. Sample.

Malibu Barbi - the name is misleading. So is the demo name, namely 'Rude Girls.' If you're still with me, this is a Leather Leone non-Chastain album, so if you liked Chastain or Original Sin it's probably worth a look. Fairly straightforward, aggressive stuff, and not bad at it. Sample.

Raising Cain - also in something of a blue-collar USPM mould, but with more of a 'white collar' tilt at times. Feature a Conklin-alike on vocals. Have only been able to listen to their demo, so not sure about how their albums went. This is one of their more straightforward songs.

There's probably a few more appropriate recommendations, but they aren't coming to mind at the moment.

Defender are great. Anesthesia's 'Prelude to Ruin' is probably one of the few things which reminds me of their kind of melodic speed metal style.

Two new Speedmetal acts have come my way giving away their stuff for free. One is a band from Mexico called Hellmidian with a demo that has great production, riffing, and a competent singer. The other is called Vigilance from Slovenia and they do a more 'nwobhm, meets Exciter' type sound with a vocalist sounding more from the UK circa 82-83 than from Slovenia.

Hellmidian:

Listen: https://soundcloud.com/hellmidian
Demo: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hellmidian/186052394783646 (To show its legit, Link is at top of their FB page)

Vigilance:

Destiny's End - Breathe Deep The Dark - because it is a James Rivera project...and really well executed USPM!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCa3kGBOd4E

Militia - Strength And Honor - the first record from this Texas speed/power band that actually formed in 1984. The album is long overdue and doesn't disappoint. If you like Helstar, you'll love 'em.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq_eorKFUtU

Hallows Eve - Monument - Very impressive (and essential) speed metal with shades of thrash and a whole train of catchy songs. Killer cover of Queen's "Sheer Heart Attack" too!

Heh, Breathe Deep the Dark was one of my very first metal albums. Huge fan. Must be in my power metal folder.

Anyway thanks guys, got lots of stuff to check out!

On another note, the more I listen to MR's new one the more I like it. Better than Playground imo.

After listening to some Tad Morose I feel like revisiting some of its albums again. I've got a feeling it won't be worth it but man, Urban Breed is so good I just want myself to like the band I guess. :p

EDIT: No idea why this didn't click before, as this is pretty cool stuff. There are some small flaws: The chorus of the self titled track is kinda lame, ''Intro/Lord on High'' should have been two seperated parts and the gruff vocal lines on ''Where The Sun Never Shines'' aren't that appopiate. The rest is fucking great though.

I read about a side project involving the guy from Alestorm who did the vocals and keyboards (Christopher Bowes) called Gloryhammer and was abit skeptical how it would be seeing the novalty of Alestorm has long wore off and some of the hilarious tracks names suck as "The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee", my expectations werent overly high. But then i listened to it and wow is it good. Really good Rhapsody like power metal :)

Probably my favourite song on the album:

Yeah, I heard some of that. Quite easily some of the worst power metal I've ever heard. Fuck Napalm records.

Alestorm have never had much talent.

Digging this Throes of Sanity, liking the slight prog edge.

Reminds me of Mercury Rising's Building Rome. Love me some good '90s power/prog.

After listening to some Tad Morose I feel like revisiting some of its albums again. I've got a feeling it won't be worth it but man, Urban Breed is so good I just want myself to like the band I guess. :p

EDIT: No idea why this didn't click before, as this is pretty cool stuff. There are some small flaws: The chorus of the self titled track is kinda lame, ''Intro/Lord on High'' should have been two seperated parts and the gruff vocal lines on ''Where The Sun Never Shines'' aren't that appopiate. The rest is fucking great though.


Gee, it's almost like some albums need time to grow on you. :roll:

edit: Seriously though, no offense but you always make this point of talking about how mediocre they are for you. It's just funny how you finally gave em another chance after a period of time and you like it now. Some music's just like that.

I had the same reaction. I have no significant issues with the music, he's just clearly my favorite part, and I wish I was into the project more over all because of that.

I gave them a third chance this time and I'm glad I did. :p

The choruses of ''Servant of the Bones'' and ''Intro/Lord on High'' are freakin' immortal.

Man, Vault's No More Escape rules hard. Wish I would have checked them out sooner.

It sounds so PROTO! So ancient! So precious! I wish I could own it in my hands.
"Leader Of The Pack" is one of the most incredibly dynamic songs you'll ever hear.

Most of the very early metal songs that weren't by Sabbath were by Purple. Fucking deal with it.

What the fuck is up with In the Beginning by Malice? One of the most uneven albums I've heard in a while. Rockin With You is probably the worst possible choice to start an album off. There's some really good songs and some really awful pieces of junk.
