    Check out Harvey Milk's work. They're darker and more sinister than those bands, but they mine a similar vein. You might also really enjoy Sleep-Holy Mountain, which was one of the more awesome Sabbath influenced metal records. Another in that vein, only in my mind much better, is Saint Vitus-Born Too Late. They were a band that toured with Black Flag quite a bit when they were around, and they were really slow and heavy.

    Oh, and also you'll probably love High on Fire. The new one, Snakes for the Divine, is as good a place to start as any.

    Why'd you edit off Sleep?

    And these are all great suggestions, barring the fact that I've not heard much Russian Circle. Neurosis is one of the best metal bands around.

    I don't know, it just didn't seem to fit with the others. Also, Opeth. Definitely check them out.

    I'm seeing Russian Circles open for Boris at a venue that's perfect for them on Wednesday. I hope this lives up to my expectations, even if it doesn't come close, it will still be an awesome show.

    They were really good when I saw them open for Boris a few times. Meanderthal is a good album.

    That's the one I have on. I really like it actually.

    A few months ago I was cruising around last.fm and looking at similar bands to Baroness and Mastodon and the others I mentioned and these guys were recommended to me. I am finally listening to it today. Also recommended were some of the names you guys have offered, so yeah. Good stuff. Brandon officially likes metal. Strange times.

    Yeah, Meanderthal is fucking great.

    While pretty much all of High On Fire's stuff is pretty great, Blessed Black Wings is my favorite.

    I'll echo everyone else's recpmmendations and throw in Zozobra, Clouds, and Rosetta for now.

    In addition to all of your excellent suggestions, I would also add the Melvins.

    Melvins is tough because you really have to know the right stuff to listen to. There's som really mediocre Melvins and some awesome.

    Oh, and Brandon, if you want the record to listen to next, it should really be Boris-Heavy Rocks.

    Im not feeling this High On Fire disc right away. I may need multiple times with it, not sure. All the other bands hit me right from the start though, so maybe not.

    I'd also like to throw Feedbacker in here. What a fucking great disc.

    Boris is lovely.


    Rwake's If You Walk Before You Crawl, You'll Crawl Before You Die deserves a mention. Great sludge/doom.

    Their other albums probably deserve me listening to them as well.

    Yeah I'd go with Houdini, Electroretard or Stoner Witch. Any of those is a fine place to start.

    Lysol was my first step into Melvins land and i found it to be a great jumping off point. Their most recent releases, (A) Senile Animal, Nude With Boots, and The Bride Screamed Murder would also be good starters for newcomers I think as they're pretty accessible, but give you a good idea of what they're all about.

    The problem I have with High On Fire after going though the album again is the double kick drum parts and the vocal delivery / execution. I know disliking double kick is sacrilegious to some metal fans and might seem odd coming from someone who plays drums, but I really hate it. I think it makes a lot of metal sound really cliche and I don't think it's doing these guys any favors. The more drawn out sections and slower parts to the songs aren't bad, but as a whole I dont see myself coming back to this group.

    Really like this Torche record though. I wish the songs weren't so damn short.


    Rwake is up next followed by those Boris albums.


    Edit:

    I also gave Rosetta a go and that was a bit too unfocused for my liking. I see the appeal for those who like the more experimental side of the genre, but that isn't what I am looking for.

    Also. 2 minutes into Rwake. I dunno about this one.

    Heavy Rocks is pretty sweet. What sucks is that Boris is touring at the moment and the midwest dates are with Russian Circles and The Life and Times. I really enjoy TLAT (ex-Shiner) and considering Russian Circles was recommended here, it would probably be a great show. I will be in Oakland the weekend Boris plays in SF. Tempting.

    The Boris/Torche split is great if you don't have that, Torche's side is really heavy. I can't recommend seeing Boris live enough, they are always on point and are ungodly loud. If no one has suggested Neurosis, I'd say check out A Sun That Never Sets and The Eye Of Every Storm.

    It sounds like Brandon likes some metal which is great but whoever is somewhat curious about metal and isn't sure if they can ever like it or not. Listen to the quintessential metal song, especially at 1:40



    If you don't like that then you probably don't like metal.

    The entireties of both Reign in Blood and Seasons Of the Abyss are essential listening, i think. Probably not up Brandon's alley though. He stated specific exampls he liked and wanted similar things.

    Have you listened to Kyuss at all Brandon?

    It's been a while since I picked up some metal; got some Cryptopsy, Monstrosity, and Deicide for crackers at Amoeba last week.



    They Are The Childeren Of The Underworld sounds retardedly pulverizing live.

    I have not listened to Kyuss. I have seen the name a lot, but am not familiar with the music.

    Currently listening to Bison B.C. Kinda cool. They are playing here soon with Helmet. Helmet still tours?

    If you don't like that then you probably don't like metal.

    See here is the thing with the video. From what I have heard of Slayer, it seems like they are focused on the speed aspect of the genre. That is fine and all, but saying that if you dont like the section with pinched harmonics you wont like an entire genre of music- doesn't really make sense. Any style of music will have subsets that sounds drastically different from each other. Just look at electronic music.

    I would definitely recommend Kyuss for that sound that you're into then. Blues From the Red Sun and Welcome To Sky Valley are both good starting points.

    Totally agree with this too. Metal is too broad for a specific piece of speed/thrash metal to be the be-all-end-all

    Yeah I'm kinda bored with straight progressive metal and thrash metal and power metal but there's tons of sludge and doom and black metal and grindcore I will eat up. Some death, too.

    I mean, sure, I'll listen to 80s Metallica but that's more nostalgia than because they impress me as metal.

    Circle takes The Square - As the Roots Undo is still on of the most interesting releases to come out in some time for me (i just checked and I can't believe it came out 6 years ago). It's a great blend of a lot of stuff.
