Metal Militia: Spreading the Disease

Unsling your guitar, pull up a chair, and strum us a chord or two. Come on in to discuss music.

Recently heard a bit of Black Sabbath and was quite delighted. :)
I went into Rockinghorse Records yesterday evening and some dark, familiar music was filling the place.
Took me a bit to realize it was Hand Of Doom. :)

Ah Black Sabbath the first metal band I got into :angel: many many moons ago. The first metal single I bought was Paranoid with Snowblind on the B Side the cover has the wild maniac brandishing a sword classic stuff :) Hail Arrisuil Hand of Doom is indeed a great song.

Canamarth what are thoughts on Mortiis? Not metal but I do quite like his take on industrial goth. And he used to play bass for emperor I read a review of some of his earlier albums that had been rereleased, and it said there was "Tolkien inspired artwork" From his album "crypt of the wizard" Something I wouldnt mind checking out at some stage :D

Totally love metal in every form.

Black Sabbath are awesome beyond belief, especially songs like NIB, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and War Pigs.

But I also digged the Dio years a lot, Heaven and Hell is such an epic song and album, though I think to the average listener people think of sabbath and think of Ozzy straight away.

I am getting into more death metal bands like Amon Amarth who I adore totally, got four of their albums and the music is just fantastic.

Folk metal is another big genre I have been indulging in a lot with bands such as Korpiklaani (Who the most fun band I have ever seen live), Ensiferum, Turisas... I think it's such a weird combination but it works so wonderfully and I am glad that we have this form of music, which appears to be gaining a lot of popularity.

Got to say my favourite band ever is Motorhead, they are just straight up heavy hitting, uncomprimising, hard rock (Which verges on metal now and again but Lemmy says they play rock n roll and who am I to argue with God?) They have not changed for anyone in over 30 years and continue to tour relentlessly and play louder then a lander 747!

Hail Malrid, I agree about the folk metal genre its an interesting take on metal mixing traditional folk with metal I really like Korpiklaani ive got Korven Kuningas which is a cracking album its great like to get more of their stuff :D Finntroll are another band id like to hear have read interviews but havent yet heard them. Do you like Alestorm pirate metal from Perth their pretty good too :) im also into Nightwish I love their music its epic awe inspiring also from Finland just like anything to do with metal :)

I retain a fondness for Judas Priest. Excellent band. I recommend the albums :Stained Class" and "Unleashed in the East" the latter is a fantastic live album.

Good stuff :wink:

Hail and well met, Lasse-lanta. That album is indeed great. Love the passages where Morgoth speaks to Sauron. :)

:rofl: I like milk in my coffee - or better said, some coffee in my milk. But I'm also a big softie when it comes to metal. :)

Having my eye on the new Coheed & Cambria but the luxury edition - with a book (as in novel) is not available at the moment. :(

Finally bought the Coheed & Cambria big edition but haven't had time to even open it. :roll: Might post something on the content once I get to it.

Might actually make it back to the Rock im Park Festival this year. Last year there was only Rammstein I really wanted to see (Muse and Rage Against the Machine I'd also enjoyed but had already seen). This time we're already looking at System of a Down, Kings of Leon, Mando Diao, Korn and Social Distortion. Will see who else they'll be adding over the next few months.

Hi all, I'm Manya.

I've recently returned to the board after about 7 years' hiatus.
Trawling some of my old haunts on here while listening to Blind Guardian's 'At the Edge of Time' sent me in search of the metalheads I felt sure must be somewhere.
And I have found you!

I listen to a lot of different genres but the main contenders are usually thrash, black, power and old school stuff like Iron Maiden. Major bias toward Euro stuff.

Hailing from Australia you can bet I don't get to see many of the bands I really like, but one day I'll get overseas...

Anyway that's enough rambling on in a thread noone will probably post in for months :D

Just nice to see some metalheads here!

Hey there Manya. Sometimes it doesn't take months. ;) Great to see you making your way in here.

What about AC/DC then? I know they're not touring at the moment but I'm sure they did gigs in Australia. ;) Saying that - I've never been to a Blind Guardian concert - but saw AC/DC live at the end of the 90s. :twisted:

Haha, well met!
Weeell I believe we're meant to classify AC/DC as rock or Angus Young gets angry :P But no, I haven't seen them, though I hear they're pretty good live. Come to think of it I don't really know why I haven't listened to them much...

I think a Blind Guardian concert would be pretty awesome, and they are coming to Aus next month, but not to my neck of the woods (which has made me very sad because I'm a poor student).

Sometimes I'm surprised at the bands that do make it here - Alcest is coming soon (and tickets are only $30!)

(OT: Thanks for the Welcome in the Welcome thread!)

You know, I'm very bad with putting music in these categories - especially since they've invented all these subcategories (glam, trash, black, nu, death, core, alternative, doom, power, speed ... ) that are doing my head in. :oops:

You're welcome on the welcome. :)

Yeah the over-categorisation that goes on amongst metalheads can be annoying. Though the basic subgenres are helpful - thrash, power, black, death and classic. Beyond that a simple 'sounds like this band' usually will suffice.

I wonder - do people here listen to much metal that is inspired by the works of Tolkien?

I used to like Blind Guardian a lot and have most of their CDs up until Nightfall in Middle-earth. I still listen to songs from that album and a few select from before that if they come up on random on my iPod.

Completely forgot I ever posted in this thread!
I'm procrastinating on writing an assignment and trawling the boards :)

In metal news, I'm going to see Amon Amarth in a few days!
I've been on a massive folk metal binge recently, but they're the first interesting band that's come along while I've had money.

How was the concert? (If you still remember after all this time, that is ...)

I managed to buy a second Dir En Grey CD - The Marrow of a Bone. The CDs are usually quite expensive in my neck of the woods, but that one must have been on sale or sth. Quite like their eclectic style.
