    hm, Isis is a very acquired taste though, especially for someone who's more used to a more metalcore sound

    clutch, Melvins, maybe something like Zozobra or Trenches would be better to start with before trying to get right into Isis

    in that vein i've been REALLY diggin' JESU and PELICAN lately

    I think I'm the world's biggest Jesu fan. That band is perfect for me.

    "Conqueror" was my #1 song of 2007.

    YAY i never meet anyone who even knows who jesu is. It got ot a point of pure obsession for me after a little while. So happy that he releases so much material.

    I only very recently got ahold of the pre-s/t stuff. "Sun Up?Sun Down" is fucking incredible

    Also been really digging on the Envy split

    Conqueror is a fantastic album. The Silver ep is amazing too. They played a show with Wolves in the Throne Room a year and a half ago; that was something else.

    I don't love the self-titled album, though. Do I need just more time on this?

    i personally love the self-titled, but the Jesu sound all together got a lot more layered varied starting with Silver, so if that's what you're more into i can see you not loving the s/t

    Dear Metal Thread,

    My boyfriend is really into Scandinavian prog metal like Opeth and Dark Tranquility. I'm trying to get into it a bit so that we can have some common ground musically (and I always like to expand my tastes), but it comes off kind of cheesy to me. I like my metal down and dirty and usually sludgy, and this stuff is just too clean. Do I just need to give it more time, or am I right and it's actually really cheesy?

    I am a big Opeth fan, (or was), but yes, I find that much of their work is way too clean and that is why I gravitate to it less and less as time goes on. Much of it just borders on the cheesy side unfortunately. But when it's good, it's great.

    I think their album Blackwater Park, their most most famous album, may very well be their most sludgy as well. But I can't remember...

    But no, I don't think it needs time. It is what it is.

    I for the most part hate prog metal and almost always hate metalcore.

    That being said Between The Buried And Me is actually really good their album Colors reminds me a bit of Disco Volante.

    they're a love em or hate em type band. i won't defend them, they've written a lot of shitty songs too. i like demanufacture a lot though, but hearing "cars" or "descent" makes me hate them.

    but...

    I just sat here for 8 minutes waiting for this dildo to do something...WTF?

    Suffacated met these guys at the Ozzfest one year. Motorgrater. He ended up befriending the lead singer, Ivan, and we followed him to afew LA shows. Plenty of stage makeup and theatrics, but unfortunately plenty of drama and politics broke them up. Huge bummer considering I had never quite experienced this type of metal before and actually liked them.

    After Motorgrater split ways, Ivan, who has experience in everything from this screaming metal to church gospel, got together with some guys to form F.F.D.P. Because of Ivan, we followed them to the Key Club and Viper Room in LA, House of Blues in San Diego, and last year drove to Las Vegas to see them in some local dive bar to a packed house.

    Pretty amazing to have watched these guys grow in fanbase and we certainly wish we could continue following them...We just can't afford Europe just yet! I came acrossed one video that regardless of the metal and screaming, I was simply in tears watching the enormous crowd in attendance! To the top, you KNUCKLEHEADS!!!
