    I haven't checked up on the latest stuff or read Terrorizer in a while, so what bands can any of you metal heads recommend? I like some pretty heavy stuff á la Pig Destroyer, Nasum, Agoraphobic Nosebleed as well as Chimaira, Mastodon, Speedhorn, Throwdown, could go on...

    Anyway, basically i want some heavier metal recommendations; nothing akin to Bullet for my Valentine or anything EMO related if you catch my drift. :D

    Charon, Sentenced (although they are now ending the band, their music is awsome and they recently won 3 FMA`s), Poison black, Paradise Lost.

    Children of Bodom - Probably the best 'modern' metal band, IMO.

    In particular their album 'Hatebreeder'. Every damn song on that album is a masterpiece.

    Ive been a Children of Bodom fan for about 5 years now!

    The new album, Are You Dead Yet, is pretty damn good and quite different from previous stuff.

    Fave song of all time by COB has to be Downfall though. Its this tune that got me into them.

    Dark Funeral - Attera Totus Sanctus
    Blood Red Throne - Altered Genesis
    Darkane - Layer of lies
    Naglfar - Phariah

    All fairly recent albums. Don't get any heavier than that with the exception of anaal nathrakh, mortician and merzbow of course :)

    Akercocke, Abigor, Immortal Soul, Iced Earth (Slightly lighter but still good) Killswitch engage (also kinda light I guess, same as Trivium).

    I recently found a song by Anaal Nathrakh and really liked it. But I've not found anywhere that sells their album. :( How could I have missed out merzbow!

    Funny you should say Akercocke, i used to live with the lead singers girlfriend. He's a sound guy, knows what he's talking about. :)

    Good to see some metal heads around, however can we scrap black/death/satanic metal please. :D

    In Flames are pretty damn good, although not new, Opeth, again not new but still incredible.

    I guess then that you prefer those two to Halldor Laxness. What d'you think of that album because it's pretty different to the first two?

    Awesome penski, i adore Murder One (as well as Medulla Nochte) and my guitarist is totally in love with Charger. Will look into Minus, My War, Decapitated and G.U. Medicine.

    You know what man, totally off-topic, but sometimes it just saddens me that alot of people don't listen too the aforementioned heavy music. It's not that i want everyone to start listening to brutal music (each to their own and stuff), it's just that feeling I get when i hear something tight and brutal and ya just go, HELLS F'IN YEAH! I want EVERYONE to feel that man. That feeling is awesome!

    I prefer Hálldor Laxness. It's one of the finest rock albums of all time in my view...And still has riffs that are so heavy they are banned in California.

    But the guy asked for Grr. Arrr. Metuurrrl.

    The Jet - My War was Jonny Morrow's post-Iron Monkey, pre-Murder One project (inbetween hiphop DJ stuff)

    I agree completely about the brutality thing - it's addictive.

    Luckily my neighbour encourages me to play Carcass, Charger, Medulla and so on at spleen-rupturing volumes.

    Yep, it's so good! I love "My Name Is Cocaine", "Boys Of Winter", and "The Long Face". Such a good album, and they are damn cool live aswell.

    /me puts on Minus now :)
