So this might be a silly request and it might even get locked if the mods decide so but I've been wondering for some time if there are bands that sound warm/hot the way bands such as Immortal and Paysage d'Hiver sound cold. It doesn't necessarily need to be black metal, it can be any genre as long as it fits the description. And, yeah, I'd be very surprised to discover something that could actually make me sweat. :lol:

I've always gotten a very warm vibe from Falconer, for whatever reason. Like a warm summer breeze blowing in your face.

Personally I think Falconer sound "warm" more as in "welcoming" than "hot" or something like that but both songs were great anyway. I'll definitely check out more of their songs. Thanks, Rosenthorn. :)

If you're unfamiliar with the "war metal" pseudo-genre, then probably your first time experience with it will probably make you feel like you're actually burning in hell. Was the case with me anyway, even made me sweat at one point.

Start with these classics:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA8q8jga5xo Blasphemy - Fallen Angel of Doom
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J56HOE3u6-s Archgoat - Whore of Bethlehem
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itmD1sP6MSo Bestial Warlust - Vengeance War 'till Death
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMHOhpGmTK0 Conqueror - War.Cult.Supremacy

Yeah, I am quite familiar with war metal and though I agree it can sound hellishly chaotic, I've never felt like I were burning while listening to such bands. I have yet to check Conqueror out, though. I'll give feedback soon. Thanks, Sepulchrave.

EDIT: To be straightforward, Conqueror sucks. Thanks, anyway.

Most are more warm/hot in the way of a desert than of fire, and the majority definitely isn't BM, but since you said genre doesn't matter much...

-Myrath. Tunisian prog with Middle Eastern influences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3zEDVqLRDY
-Nawather's Wasted Years. Another Tunisian prog/ME-folk project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHer-rTg4Tg
-Cyaxares. Iraqi one-man project. Death w. ME influences (though the "warmth" of the music differs a lot from song to song). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbOWS09M22g
-Camel of Doom. UK. Stoner/Doom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7xYS03_cOs
-Conjuro Nuclear's . Spanish ambient/BM/darkwave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bIlNKkSMGU
-Darkestrah's The Great Silk Road. Kyrgyzstan folk/BM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh1in3KVw58
-Drought - Rudra Bhakti. Italian Vedric/Tantric BM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y11RJWHH7U
-Shylmagoghnar's Emergence has its moments. Dutch blackened melo-death. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMGo-9tKb90
-Dhwesha - Shtoopa. Indian DM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL4oWs6U_sU
-Khepri. UK one-man project. Prog w. ME influences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSD4l3ATQPw
-نار جهنم (Narjahanam) - Bahrain black/death w. ME influences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvlMU_-Mars
-Al Qaynah. Oriental Folk Metal. International project purporting to be from Afghanistan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2od_qDLfxNA

Bands from warm climates I guess are more likely to sound warm. I find Rebaelliun sounds especially like an infernal blast of burning wind in the face:

And of course Melechesh has that sandy/deserty vibe through and through:\

I guess I can see why everyone thinks some sort of middle eastern or arabic sound correlates to sounding warm but that's kinda too easy and obvious, you know? Let's see something that isn't necessarily tied to geographical location.

In Melechesh's case it's nothing to do with that. It's the muted, dry tone of the instruments mostly.

Morbid Angel - Blessed Are The Sick is actually a perfect example of "warm metal", and Covenant also qualifies. Blessed sounds like a rock-filled desert being blasted by sandstorms and Covenant sounds like a turgid swamp full of giant mosquitos and volcanic Lovecraftian nightmares.

I've always wondered why people associate a muted sound with warm and a harsh sound with cold. I could easily see how it would be completely valid to see it the exact opposite way.

Probably the same reason they associate gray and blue with cold and orange and yellow and red with hot... cold air is very crisp and harsh, and high frequencies are more pronounced in cold climates. Warm muggy air is often so laden with humidity that high frequencies become suppressed and lower frequencies become more pronounced, and the entire perception of sound blurs into a torrid murk - it's essentially a form of musical synesthesia. It's no different than how people refer to vinyl sounding "warm" in comparison to CDs.

I have seen Varathron's His Majesty at the Swamp described as having a warm sound. The cover of the album reinforces that mood as well. As somebody mentioned earlier many of the Greek black metal bands have a similar sound. In particular try Rotting Christ's Thy Mighty Contract, Thou Art Lord's Eosforos, and Necromantia's Scarlet Witching Black.

Thanks for mentioning Macabre Omen, I'm blown away. I can't believe I've gone this long without ever knowing them. I'd like to add Beherit's Engram album, Sunn O)) of course, Nadja's album Truth Becomes Death (haven't heard their other albums) all sound warm to me.

Totenmond's Reich in Rost albums always had the feel of being in a steel mill to me:

Virtually any album that I listen to in tape format sounds nice and warm to me. That said, I second His Majesty at the Swamp, it sounds downright humid!

There's plenty of albums I'd mention, like Deathspell Omega's Paracletus, but sometimes it's hard to tell if it's just the album artwork influencing my perception.
Take Dark Funeral as an example. Diabolis Interium, Attera Totus Sanctusand Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus all sound like scorching hellfire, but would they still if their covers were switched with The Secrets of the Black Arts or the self-titled (and vice-versa)?
