I just came upon the realization that I don't know any new straight-up black metal bands, just symphonic stuff (which I dislike a bit). Could someone recommend me some? It seems like a rarity...
can I get pointed in the right direction with Powerviolence bands such as Ceremony?
the endless brigade, weekend nachos, chaisaw to the face, trash talk, california love, uzi suicide, lewd acts, hatred surge, rainbow of death, and iron lung.
older powerviolence bands...
crossed out, a**sholeparade, gasp, charles bronson, dropdead, infest, combatwoundedveteran, mk-ultra, capitalist casualties, and lack of interest.
Outside of a few acts from the 90s, I've pretty much stopped listening to "traditional black metal". It's the new wave that interests me the most.
I just want to know more black metal. I know the least about it of all the subgenres, but I've been listening to the stuff I do know a lot lately and I'm really starting to take more of a liking towards it. I even just recorded a little diddy and put it on YouTube.
So, yeah, I'll take anything. I like traditional stuff the best (like that thing I recorded), but I just want to know more in general.
To be perfectly honest, I don't really follow scenes too much. I guess I'm going by my own definitions here, as I don't frequent the Archives anymore. Furze and Wolves in the Throne Room are great underground bands. If you want to look for some more bizarre stuff, check out the much acclaimed Ameseours, Alcest, and Cobalt.
Amesoeurs kicks ass. Their debut is one of my favorite albums of the year. Too bad they split up. I'll check out the others, though, thanks.
yeah, black metal's definitely expanded more in the past 5 years than i think many people expected, even after bands like weakling, draugar, and other bands started pushing into some new territory at the beginning of the decade.
**** metal archives. Black Metal/Shoegaze is 100 fold more "metal" than 90% of what those dorks are listening to.
Yet another question that might only be answered by afterstasis, but is Lifter Puller worth checking out?
I got $30 worth of iTunes credit. What should I use it on?
For a random recommendation, the remasters of The Jesus Lizard albums are pretty sweet. Liar and Goat in particular.
need bands similar too soft cell.
Well, I just spent $6 on They Mean Us - Friendship Lottery, which I've been meaning to get for a long time but never could find any torrents for or on SS.
Edit: Just listened to a few of their songs on YouTube, and it turns out I agree with you. I found them to be incredibly bland. They weren't terrible or anything, but they weren't interesting in the slightest. Also, for whatever reason, I now have an incredible urge to listen to Archers Of Loaf...
