Heavy Metal/ Hard Rock
 
Have created this thred due to 'peer pressure' :D

There a lot of us rockers still about and thought we deserved a thread of our own instead of having to trawl through all the pop ones.

Now what to start off with...hmmmm

Well i am looking forward the new Clutch album and also to seeing Megadeth for the first time in June

Good chap you!

Not normally into the really heavy stuff and normally listen to things like the Wildhearts and the Dogs D'amour but really like Feed the Rhino (I know the singer) and the new Ginger stuff (Mutation and the Hey Hello albums on PledgeMusic). The Mutation stuff is a lot heavier than the Wildhearts but great whilst the Hey Hello stuff is not so heavy and again great stuff.

I'm more in to the Prog/Symphonic end of the spectrum these days, so the likes of Within Temptation, Delain, Riverside, Nightwish, etc.

The next gig for me is Halestorm on Sunday in Cardiff so really looking forward to that!

I saw Me (or The Me Band) at The Barfly, London on Tuesday evening - good stuff. They are from Australia and play theratrical rock music, got chatting to a couple of the members after the gig and got them to sign my T-Shirt, nice guys.

I saw Ginger supporting The Darkness earlier in the week. Couldn't warm to them mainly because of the off putting female backing singer who looked soooo out of place with a rock band - she looked like she should be in an amateur dramatics production of Grease.:confused:

I don't listen to a lot of contemporary rock and metal, basically as it doesn't do a lot for me. But I'm very much looking forward to the new Clutch album as well. I need to stock up on their back catalogue, but I do have all the studio albums from Pure Rock Fury onwards. To be honest I thought Strange Cousins From the West wasn't quite up to their usual standard, but still enjoyable.

It's hard to choose between Blast Tyrant, Robot Hive/Exodus and From Beale Street to Oblivion as their best album. All three are excellent. Also I was pleasantly surprised a couple of years back watching Ace of Cakes to find out Neil Fallon's sister Mary Alice is a member of staff. So Clutch appeared on an episode :).

The new track 'Earth Rocker' is in full on YouTube. And awesome it is too :D.

I saw Megadeth back on the Clash of the Titans tour in 1990. I was mainly there for Slayer at the time, but Megadeth were really good.

Has to be Blast Tyrant for me, although one band shouldnt be allowed to have so many good riffs on one album :D

Woah, just noticed this thread.

Most threads about hard rock seem to disappear pretty quickly - lost in the MOR/pop morass on here.

We need a 'meeting place' for posters who prefer music with more balls \m/

What do you guys think of Devin Townsend?

I've never heard of him tbh. Do you have any links to his stuff?

crazymonk 07-03-2013 21:48

Ziltoidia Attaxx!!!
Kingdom
Ki

His music is quite diverse though, it's not just your usual metal for me and he has a great voice and I also enjoy his more tranquil ones.

He also has a band by the name Strapping Young Lad that are really loud!:D:cool:

Very interesting, isn't he? You really can't pin him down, can you? Those tracks are all very different, aren't they?

Kingdom is just begging to be covered by Van Canto. Please someone, make this happen :D

crazymonk 07-03-2013 22:25

Glad you enjoyed him! :D

The first track, I was thinking 'oh, a metal Eno'. Then kingdom was so different. I'm still listening to the third one. He has an amazing voice. :)

crazymonk 07-03-2013 22:31

He is quite something, glad you agree. :)

The end bit of Ki sounds similar to Enya! :eek::D

crazymonk 07-03-2013 22:39

One more of Dev, prepare for further confusion! :D

Right - eight seconds in & I'm thinking Golden Earring - Radar Love. Let's see what it develops into. I'll be back :D

43 seconds - he's turned into Elvis :eek:

Now it's gone all skiffle/metal/blues :D

crazymonk 07-03-2013 22:45

LOL!! He is a true artist, just throws it all into the fire, I love that he has so many influences, never gets boring, love him! :D

I haven't heard anything this eclectic since the first Roxy Music album. the mix of genres & influences is quite something.

crazymonk 07-03-2013 22:51

Hope to make a fan out of you! :D To be honest I'm only discovering him properly since late last year even though I knew about him since 2011.

axlgod 07-03-2013 22:55

Check out Ghost B.C.
Possibly the most talked about band at the moment.

We'll see. He'll have to be pretty special to drag me away from my beloved Sabaton though :)

Doesn't the general music conversation on here make you feel like running into a wall at times? :D
