2009-03-05, 12:31 AM
have you heard any Muse?

2009-03-05, 04:59 AM

No.... not yet.

Hmmm, how much metal do you listen to besides Slipknot?

Not much. I don't really appreciate screaming and tremolo bar abuse. I actually can't name any other slipnot songs, much less ones that I like.

Aside from that, I like all the Ozzy/ Black Sabbath greats (Crazy Train, Bark at the Moon, Paranoid, and well, duh, Iron Man).

One other is Inside the Fire by Disturbed.

Get the stupid idea that metal is screaming and tremolo abuse out of your head. It is a massive error. I won't deny that there is screaming in metal. However, there is lots of metal with clean vocals and guitarists who almost never touch the whammy bar.

I'd link up some songs, but sadly my phone doesn't do copy+paste. I'll try to get to a computer to link some actual songs, but if I don't do it today, wander over to the metal thread and ask for some recommendations. They have good taste over there.

Elliott - now defunt US indie band. We absolutely incredible. get the "song in the air" album, then "false cathedrals"


2009-03-06, 12:31 AM
You should listen to that song by that band that was in the movie where it was listened to and enjoyed by that thrill killing alien parasite. It ruled!

Try Grounds for Divorce, by Elbow.

Skillet (especially the "comatose" album)

Seconded. Best ones, imo, are Comatose (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gablEKsjlWg), Whispers in the Dark (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kfi3rN0C50&feature=related), and Rebirthing (can't find music for it :smallannoyed:).

Remedy ~ Seether

Agree with zeratul here. Seether seems to be a good fit with the bands you have listed in your opening post.

One other is Inside the Fire by Disturbed.

You may want to try some of Disturbed's other songs, though probably not songs from their first album (possibly too screamish). My suggestions would be Indestructible (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSF2i0rU_Q8&feature=related), The Curse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcuZsYd4XYw), Stricken (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNjCZrsH25Q), Prayer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnLYMZq-Y_A), and Ten Thousand Fists (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVinwOpllQk).

Some other bands you might like:
Breaking Benjamin: Blow Me Away (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yHuuBZgif0&feature=related), Breath (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCYfw2CyUdA&feature=related), Diary of Jane (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWBvDySV9Bw&feature=related), So Cold (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15WM4KEE7wY&feature=related)
System of a Down: Toxicity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wyCh_vyalA&feature=related), Aerials (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyLOw29VJIA&feature=related), ATWA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7PHgIZzaCE) for some of their more relaxed songs

I could probably think of more but its too late now...time for bed. :smallsigh:

The national anthem. Play it real loud while you take your gun apart and put it back together again real fast while blindfolded.

Always gets me pumped up.

2009-03-06, 11:43 AM
Thanks for the recomendations!

-Canadian, is that the US or Canadian anthem?

YUSH! Elbow is seriously amazing, check 'em out. I'd recommend going back to Sabbath, and buying one of their albums and listening to it all the way through. Preferably Paranoid, there isn't a bad song on the album. Then watch Woodstock and/or Monterey Pop, in addition to being wonderful history lessons on music, I haven't met someone who hasn't appreciated at least one act from them.

Also, Primus.
