When I was younger and more into music than I am know, we had the 4 big groups:
Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth.
I have all their old stuff and still listen to it rather often.
Over the years, I’ve also enjoyed the following:
Meshuggah, Sepultura, Nailbomb, Arch Enemy, Dry Kill Logic and some Slipknot and Carcass and quite a few others who’s name I don’t recall.
Now, if I was looking for something new, but with a sound that’s in a similar vein: heavy riffs, driving bass… The kind of song that makes you drive too fast and break PRs when lifting; avoiding the as much as possible the “barking” singers, who should I check out?
I’m not a musician. Suggestions where “the technique will blow me away” then to leave me cold. Smoke On the Water sounds better to me than a Steve Vai 10 minutes solo…
That’s too bad because Steve Vai is my fav guitar hero haha. Umm for music, check out Nevermore, and basically any Thrash band, like Kreator, Testament, and you’ll probably like Later Death since Chuck went easy of the harsh vocals. When you mean barking do you mean growling? i.e. Cannibal Corpse?
