It was also a Blind Guardian album
but my favorite bands jump all around the genre
Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, In Flames, Machine Head, Black Label Society, Carcass, Dimmu Borgir, Soilwork, Dream Theater, Morbid Angel, Arch Enemy, Iced Earth (If you are into Demons And Wizards, this is Jon Schaeffer's main band)Nevermore, Queensryche, Tool, Fear Factory, Slayer, Judas Priest and whatever else is catching my eardrums. I try to catch as many shows as possible and I am lucky that Raleigh has a good metal scene.

Mmmm, metal. Good topic! (and chance for a shamless plug of my internet radio show!) I am a huge fan of that which is called doom! And stoner rock too, but you could argue all day as to whether bands were stoner metal or stoner rock, But its all metal to me! Seriously though, doom is heavy stuff! And not heavy in the sense of thrashing drums and screaming vocals. Heavy in the sense of very downtuned guitars, stupendously down tempo music and you find in quite a few doom bands, a heavy psycadelic element! And you usualy find the solos in doom to be quite effective with the slow paced music. Alltogether it just crushes you! Its slow, sludgy, bassy and fucking wicked! So anyway, some of my fave bands and some ones to check out if what ive just said interested you in any way!

Electric wizard (the absolute kings!)
Cathedral (ex napalm death singer lee dorian in a much much different band! Legends in the genre though!)
Sleep (amazing band, they have a 1 track album lasting 54 mins which blows you away! Theres a solo about ever 10 mins! And they have also released an album which was hearelded as 'the album black sabbath never made!')
Grand magus (their older stuff was doomier, there newer stuff taking more of a lean to stoner metal, but still equaly as amazing!)
Black sabbath (duhhhhh)

And some more stoner rock/metal influenced bands:
Orange goblin (they still do some doomy stuff but most of it is more upbeat and groove laiden!)
The mighty nimbus (bassy bassy sound, killer riffs and solos, super groove!)

Oh, and did I mention that I do an internet radio show playing stoner rock, metal and doom, I diddnt? Well, you better check this out then:

The Hotbox

So you can get an insight without having to buy any cd's!!!

That depends on how you define "metal"... If we go back to more classic examples, than, for my money, you can't beat early Sabbath, or Deep Purple (not to mention Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow). But some people won't accept Purple as metal...

If we look more recently, my stereo/car/iPod can often be found filling my day with tunes by such artists as Nightwish, Dream Theater, and Symphony X. Occasionally, when I'm in a bombastic mood, Rhapsody will sneak in (especially Power of the Dragonflame), and there is nothing wrong with a little Queensryche.

However, if I were asked to name which metal band I find to be the most innovative, challenging, and truly progressive (in terms of musical variety and lyrical skill), I would have to nod in the direction of Pain of Salvation.

I'm into old-school metal, as that's what I grew up listening to:

Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Metallica.

My girlfriend is more into metal than me, and she likes a lot of the newer ones - American Head Sharge, Trivium, that kind of thing.
I'm really into System of a Down at the moment - "The Gilbert and Sullivan of metal" laugh.gif

Gilbert and Sullivan are quite good to, but operetta doesn't really count as metal...

My brother used to share a flat with Justin from Electric Wizard fact fans. Good bloke, albeit a tad on the strange side.

AC/DC - Back In Black.....there never has and never will be a better metal album.

There are always great metal singles (as there are Pop, Rap, Techno etc) but very few great albums, at least in recent years, I would call great.

Can't take all this death/black metal stuff seriously. Sounds like industrial...but not as good. Funnily enough when I looked at this thread for the first time last night Cradle Of Filth came on MTV2....one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time

The vast majority of music I own is metal, be it heavy, death, black, doom, power, even some that mixes metal and opera (Tristania, Nightwish, etc).

Absolute favourites would have to be Opeth, Emperor (pretty much the definition of black metal), Tool, Iron Maiden, In Flames and Cradle of Filth.

I don't think I've ever heard anything by them, I shall investigate.

There are those that would argue that AC/DC are not metal, but blues based rock. I have a friend who adores AC/DC, Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc., and he hates being called a metaller.

Some of these Scandanavian death metal bands seem to have links with the far right, and I've read that Pantera do as well, or there singer at least.

In my experience a lot of bands right on the fringes of musical genres have extreme political ideological values. In the Oi punk scene you have bands like Skrewdriver with disgustingly racist, homophobic lyrics and beliefs. The worst part is that other bands in the same genre often then get tarred with the same brush. (E.g., The Exploited)

As musically brilliant as Emperor were, their original drummer is in prison for murder and their guitarist Samoth did time for arson (burned down a church). Varg Vikernes (Burzum) is currently in prison for murder (although he claims it was self defence) and spends a lot of time writing about the evils of christianity (he kind of has a point, christians did burn down pagan temples in Norway, so as a pagan why is it any worse if he burns down churches?).
