I have probably seen Machine Head more than any other band as they always seem to be a support act for someone, i have yet to see them headline somewhere, missed them last time in manchester

I think it's because we just appreciate the music, without getting hung up about who is out-selling who or who is the bigger name etc.

Listening to your first link now - Walk Away. Like it

Less keen on the second one & unfortunately, I couldn't get past THIS

My teenage metal head has informed me that FFDP are kiddie pop . Melodic Metal Core or something. How many flipping metal sub genres are there ffs?

Found the first one a bit dull but the Machine Head track grew on me as it went on. I'm usually not keen on harsh vocals but that was ok.

Having said that, I do have a fondness for this

Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God

How on earth have I only just discovered this thread??

Anyway, good evening all. Has anyone on here heard of Opeth? Will certainly not be to everyone's taste as there are growled vocals, but clean ones as well. Their music is best described as 'progressive death metal.' This is, IMO, their best album:

Some will like it, some won't. Oh, and apologies if already raised - I haven't read the entire thread. Looking forward to some intelligent discussion about great music!

Not my thing, sorry. Maybe my ears need tuning but to me, all the growlers sound the same. I like distinctive voices. The music's ok though.

Oh wait, he's started singing. Or is it someone else? Unfortunately the singing is unremarkable. Preferable to the growling though.

Same bloke - Mikael Akerfeldt - and IMO he's a great singer but death growls are extremely subjective - it took me quite some time to get used to them. The musicianship is magnificent.

Actually, Opeth's most recent album,- Heritage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t8fl96HPQI) has no death growls at all, just clean vocals, so you may enjoy that one.

I did try but had to turn off after about six minutes because I was bored. Imo, that's about the worst thing music can do to me - bore me.

I like Iron Maiden. They have great taste in support acts.

In fact, I like them so much I'll throw in a bonus track

Fear Of The Dark

Anyone here a fan of

Bullet for my valentine
Breaking Benjamin
Alterbridge
Buckecherry

Favourite songs by Breaking Benjamin has to be Breath & Diary of Jane.

And Favourite song by Buckcherry has to be Crazy B*

There is an uncensored video of Crazy B on youtube, which is very very nice, but cannot post for obvious reasons.

Iron Maiden was the first music t-shirt i ever bought, used to be a stall in Manchester Arndale Market that used to do those ironed on transfers, i thought i was the dogs doo-dahs. The actual t-shirt it was pressed onto was of questionable quality because after about 3 washes it either shrunk or went right out of shape

Pantera are awesome - Vulgar Display of Power is a brilliant album!

Rob Zombie - Hellbilly Deluxe - Every tune is a classic.

Also anything Stone Sour create.
I've never liked Slipknot but I do really rate Sone Sour. I've seen them twice and they are very, very, impressive.

How about some old hard rock!

MC5 - Kick out the Jams:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XhQRFO4M7A

Humble Pie - No Doctor!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZMmV6xXYFw

Both are over 40 years old but does it matter?
