Great song / performance!
It's been a long time since I heard that one.

I think if we put Peter in this thread got to go back to the Carnivore days.

I don't think Carnivore is something I'd be able to get into. I am a Type-O fan, but I don't think I am a die-hard Peter fan.

Here's one from an album I've had since it's release (2018). The whole album is great. I have only dabbled in their back-catalog, and nothing grabbed me like this album does.

Alright guys, let's... let's get weird for a minute. I found this guy when I was searching for Halloween metal and was both surprised and delighted. Now, I listened to it in the truck, so I didn't get to see the video. It's a really neat blend of jazz, trap, 80's power metal, some pop metal, Rob Zombie/White Zombie type vibes, deathcore, nu metal (Jonathan Davis has a few lines on this one, and they go quite Korn for those few bars). There's a syncopated jazz drum solo, jazz trumpet or saxophone licks in the middle of a heavy breakdowns, and more. I'm reminded of old Candiria a bit. It defies categorization, and it surely won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's worth a spin. The frontman's vocals are... wow.

Atually, let's skip the music videos for now. They're a distraction.

This one came bubbling up into my conscience this morning from twenty years ago.

And moving rapidly on. I've been in a mood to revisit Justice lately. Glad I found this. If Cliff Burton hadn't died, I imagine this is about what this album would've sounded like. Really beefy and full, damn.

I appreciate the continued contributions, Smudge. Exiled Martyr wasn't my jam; Kim Dracula made for an entertaining brief sampling, but isn't something I'd care to return to; and Enterprise Earth was pretty slick.

I'll catch up on your recent recommendations soon.

And oh shit, Brojob is back at it with a volume 2! Will Ramos even rewrote and performed Christmas lyrics for "To The Hellfire" at 5:35. Couldn't believe my ears when the intro started. We got some Grinch action on this one, too. I was laughing my ass off to this album, it's definitely a banger. Big Grin

Watched INK 11/30 down in Norfolk, VA (Kiss of Death Tour with New Years Day, Avatar, In This Moment & Ice Nine Kills). They were awesome as always but Avatar stole the show. I'd heard of them, but really hadn't paid much attention to them. Since then, I've been listening to their stuff and I'm having fun with it. They've got range too, not just heavy screamo metal.









Also caught Imminence in Pittsburgh 11/27 and they put on a helluva show. Seeing them again in May when they come to Richmond Big Grin Might even see them in Mesa, AZ when we go visit my wife's family in April Wink

Missed your post, Mutedblade, I'll check those out.

Taking a bit of a break from the deathcoresque stuff and checking out what the scene kids evolved into while I was doing other things. Not bad, honestly.



I tend to avoid "Verb the Noun" bands, but I'm giving these guys a shot and I'm pleasantly surprised.



I'm a sucker for anything Featuring Courtney LaPlante. This one gets down pretty hard.



That whole album is really good. I only posted a couple of the heavier tracks, but there's some hip-hop/pop type tracks and interludes that are pretty good, too.

Going down a little further down that rabbit hole, I discovered these guys. It feels like a slightly grown-up version of 2006 or so post-hardcore. Very dry, gated guitars, which I like.



I don't know who these guys are, but they go pretty hard. Part of what I would call an EP released two days ago.



And, just because random: if Nile were a lot less black metal and more melodic.



Oh, and because female lead vocals: have some really beautiful singing ranging from blues rock to some ridiculously heavy riffs and breakdowns.

Haven't thought of these guys in years. I saw them live a couple times at my college. Some friends of mine in a band we used to play shows with opened for them. Crowd went fucking nuts when they kicked off their first song - I've never been knocked around that hard in a pit. Anyways, I found their demo on my hard drive and gave it a listen, then decided to look them up. They got signed a few years later and put out an album. It's pretty good, and honestly? Some of these tracks were maybe ahead of their time a good bit because I think some of this would take off today, twenty years later. Looked up the vocalist and had a friendly chat just now. God, I feel old.

Anyway, if you like the mid 90's hardcore, almost-post-punk thing, Endicott serves up a big, solid helping.

If you've been wanting some heavy music dripping with melody, four part harmonies, lounge jazz interludes, classical structuring, progressions, and phrasing, with mode shifts that are anything but, and some Django Reinhardt, Andrés Segovia, and Joe Satriani all thrown in a blender until it comes out smooth, then sit and give this one a taste.

Well, Smudge, I managed to catch up on all your preceding samples. Oddly enough, the first was my favorite. I have to admit I rolled my eyes, in the first few seconds of the track, because I don't like what BMtH has become (and still don't), but that was the one I found most enjoyable, of what you provided. I dislike their increased use of electronic stuff, though they pull it off pretty well, and I absolutely despise the "crowd anthem" bullshit lyrics/vocals. Parkway Drive went to shit too, when they started incorporating more of that garbage.

Long story short: their new stuff ain't got shit on songs like Alligator Blood. "Put a gun to my head and paint the walls with my brain"; classic...

Yeah, old BMTH goes hard, as the kids say these days.

These guys keep showing up in my feed, so here they are:


I have no idea why YouTube decided that I need to listen to this track that's 13 years old, but it also keeps showing up in my feed, and it's getting a lot of play time for me. Good groove, some cool synth stuff thrown in, a solid chorus. It's got it going on.

Probably not hardcore enough, but I really like it.

Nonsense! I tend to like to post the more extreme stuff I run across, but a lot of these bands put out lighter tracks and musical interludes that I really enjoy. It's all welcome here. That one guy who posted Foghat later deleted it, but it wasn't because anyone hassled him about it. Smile

Rammstein kicks so much ass, I'm glad they're still at it all these years down the road.

And now, some random YouTube recommendations:



I love when a band doesn't take themselves too seriously:


Been listening to a fair bit of Oceans Ate Alaska lately. I don't see myself going to a show or anything, but it's different.
