Cool. I like the GazettE, Deathgaze, X Japan, Dir En Grey, Nocturnal Bloodlust, Coldrain, SiM, Darrell, RagDollz, and Dexcore.

Ooh cool, someone else that actually likes Coldrain! :o

Ever given Crossfaith a listen? Absolutely amazing Japanese band!

Some cool death metal from Russia:



Album of the Week: Sadist - Above the Light (1993)

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc_beCzGi-A

 

Now, if there's one thing I love, it's music that switches between heavy and soft. Sadist do that really well. Nice, technical death metal that also makes heavy use of keys (similar to Nocturnus in that respect I guess), and I've been listening the shit out of it these past few weeks. I highly recommend it to you guys!!



I enjoy this song quite a bit, too:



JESUS SAVES!!

Guys, do you know any good metal memes?



IN THE MEANTIME!!



When I experienced this track in game I really enjoyed it. Not sure the genre though, as its quite diverse. It especially gets good after 2-3 minutes!

Try Maximum the Hormone as well for something metalcore.

I'll check them out.

I haven't heard the whole song, only parts of it from their documentary. But I love their music. I think they are awesome. I'd recommend checking out their documentary We Are X.

It's a great song but man is it a lot to absorb. There's like 12 minutes of just a piano solo heh.

Nice, I'll have to give that a watch - being a fan of both metal and documentaries. They seem like the kind of band I'd be into. May have to check out some of those other bands you mentioned too. I assume you've probably heard of these but just in case - Blood Stain Child and Babymetal are pretty sweet too (from the handful of songs I've heard from them anyway). They both kind of have an industrial, almost techno vibe to them so not sure if that's your thing, but I like some trance music in addition to metal so it definitely appeals to me.

I didn't even know metal had much of a presence at all in Japan until watching Sam Dunn's Global Metal. Was surprised to see that it's actually somewhat popular there.

Haven't heard of Blood Stain Child, I'll give them a listen. I have heard of Babymetal though. My boyfriend is a fan of them.

I love Coldrain. I want their new CD. I've heard a few songs by Crossfaith. I liked what I heard.

I wanted to buy a copy of Fateless when it released but couldn't find it on Amazon or any online store, unless I want to buy the digital soundtrack, but I like buying my albums on disc! So I've had to settle with just listening to it on Spotify, lol. Hopefully they'll be in the UK again sometime in the future though, already seen them once and they were amazing.

As for Crossfaith, seen them live three times now and they just keep getting better and better. They need to hurry up with their next album though, although they did release a three song EP last month, and they do seem to release songs quite frequently... just no word on a new album yet though :o
