Do you have the new Tomahawk CD? I've not picked it up so far. I loved the first one, the second had it's moments, and I never bothered with Anonymous. It's not really hard rock, but I always thought this was pretty intense on head phones (particularly the end).

Mr. Bungle - The Bends http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auf2kXy8P94
Anon was a bit odd, i agree. But the new one Oddfellows is more like the first two. I highly recommend it.

Mr Bungle's The Bends. What a track. That end bit you speak of, i've always had this thought of a guy breaking into a house, and instead of calling the cops, just play that end part at full volume.

Ooh this thread looks promising!

I've been getting back in to Kyuss recently, 50 Million Year Trip and Freedom Run are particularly immense!

Great to see Mike Patton's stuff getting a mention here. I love the new Tomahawk album, fave one off it at the mo is probably the opening track: Oddfellows.

Aww, I can never remember how to do it either!

I just go to advanced reply, write my song - artist, right click and highlight it then go to the wee link thing at the top and type the youtube address in there.

Hope that makes sense, I know now't about computer terminology.

It was a big hit for them in Sweden - got to no1 in 2008

When's the last time a metal track did that here?
It happens in Finland and Germany, too. It's common to find metal bands in their album charts, and sometimes there's a breakthrough into their singles charts.

Rock probably gets airplay in those countries.

Remember when the UK used to have the coolest music scene in Europe? What happened? When did we get stuck in this endless cycle of MOR/Easy listening/kiddie pop?

It's embarrassing

Yep, I remember when I first got into metal/hard rock in the late 70's/early 80's groups like AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Judas Priest, Motorhead etc were regulars in the charts and on Top of the Pops and I still have many of their singles and picture discs.

I like all kinds of music but I usually say that rock/metal is my favourite genre. No other type of music allows you to unleash such raw emotion, whether it's euphoria or rage. I especially like it because the lyrics can be deep and meaningful or just an excuse to have a good scream at the world, yet the music is still powerful.

Two tracks I usually rely on are:

Sepultura 'Roots Bloody Roots'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_6IjeprfEs

Soil 'Halo'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFc-2aNZ6VY

I also have fond memories of seeing metal bands live and headbanging so much that my neck is sore the next day. Good times.

I just posted THIS in the 'strangest cover songs' thread & it just occurred to me...even Finland has better music than we do. Finland! When the actual f*ck did that happen?

It's enough to drive you to drink. I'm having a large VODKA!

*dances like a loon*

I think I'll follow it up with a shot of Tequila *bounces round room like an idiot*



I guess i'm just a Happy Little Boozer

STOP PRESS!

Iggy and The Stooges have unveiled a new song called Burn, taken from their forthcoming album Ready To Die.

I think you'll fit in this thread just fine . Why not post some of your favourite tracks?

Been listening to this quite a bit recently:

Amaranthe - The Nexus

And have enjoyed a lot of the Scandinavian melodic metal over the last few years, such as this sort of thing:

Kamelot - The Great Pandemonium

Evergrey - A Touch of Blessing

Stinkfist by Tool and Jerry Was A Racecar Driver by Primus are both sounding particularly good after a few shandies!

no one has mentioned Slipknot yet, they are one of my favourite bands, seen them twice and both times they were fantastic.

I loved his Ocean album, it had a huge sound. Another current band I like is Boom Boom Satellites from Japan. Not straight ahead hard rock (there's electronica and indie in there too), but they know the importance of a good riff .

Broken Mirror

Easy Action

Intergalactic

Shut Up And Explode

You know what, Slipknot is one of those bands who have been around forever, yet I've never once checked them out. That's the first time I've actually heard them. I doubt I'll be doing it again. Sorry.
