Heavy Metal Thread (and Associated Genres)

I’m glad John Coffey is making music again.

If you need to know, this is how awesome they are:

I just discovered After the Burial. A local band from Minneapolis. I like it. They have been around for awhile and I’ve liked heavier music for a long time. I have seen people with their shirts here and there, but I figured they probably weren’t that good, or just good for a local group. I guess I was missing out.


Drain’s new album would be an A+ even without The Descendants cover.

I really like after the burial, they have some great songs. Some of their stuff I just can’t get into though. The production on their earlier releases is just all over and it sounds like a collection of produced-at-home singles. Each song individually is great, but it just doesn’t work cohesively as an album.

The first song from them that I heard was this one, and it’s still my favorite!

New York hardcore, groove metal or rap? What was the band from New York that was associated with gangs/the grafitti scene. There was one in particular that had a really catchy song and it sounded like metal crossed with rap and hip hop (but not quite nu metal) This song gives me the same vibe as that band

I can’t remember for the life of me… cognitive faculties are stunted

Several. @unreal24278

Terminal Confusion
Crown of Thornz

Mackey from Cro-mags was a graffiti writer but no one else in the band wrote (as they say).

Guy from my old town did this in tribute to Madball.

It was this one

@BrickHead there was a hardcore concert in Aus recently where the crowd AND the band were so unruly that the venue issued a permenant ban on the band!

In most venues, moshing isn’t really allowed here. Only in open spaces/large festivals is it tolerated

I can see why that would be the case.


This one’s been a staple of my play queues during the past 8 months or so since I first heard it, so good:

Troy core!

Forgot about this collaboration.

Some instrumental guitar porn. Polyphia, Angel Vivaldi, Cloudkicker.


New one from In This Moment

Brink’s voice is so good.

Not a metal song, but if you play drums, this is amazing.

He does Slipknot songs one handed.

Dude is fucking intense

Just saw Midnight and Danzig in Vegas


Maybe not metal per se (and it’s cover of a very not metal song) but pre-workout eye candy at least:
