I wish I could +1 this post a million times...then the question would be, in this prog metal supergroup, who could we get to play bass and guitar? I do 100% like the way you think though. ;)


Billy Sheehan on bass
Marty Friedman on guitar

I'm trying to go with people who aren't currently in "bigger" acts already (yeah I know Sheehan is always in a million different projects.)

I haven't got into any "new" bands per se, but just to list some from each genre mentioned (you will notice duplicates for ones I can think of that qualify for more than a single genre):

Industrial Rock/Metal: KMFDM, Rammstein, Megaherz, G//Z/R, Fear Factory, The Kovenant, Pain, Ministry, Drown

Symphonic: Kamelot, Epica, Nightwish, Therion, Dimmu Borgir (I prefer to think of them as Symphonic than Black Metal), After Forever

Power: Kamelot, Stratovarius, Edguy, Dio

Progressive: Dream Theater, Opeth, Tool, Queensryche, Nevermore, Green Carnation (Light of Day / Blessing)

Gothic: Lacuna Coil, Tristania, Type O Negative, Xandria, Nightwish, The Kovenant, Draconian, Paradise Lost

Plain ol' heavy/thrash: Judas Priest, Metallica (Black Album and before), Megadeth, Slayer, Hirax, Kreator, Sepultura (w/Max), Flotsam & Jetsam, God Forbid, Exodus, Darkane, Testament, Lordi, Black Label Society, Machine Head

Not nearly all bands but just some examples.


You know very little about Gothic metal if those are your best examples. and how is Machine Head and Judas Priest even metioned together.

Dimmu Borgir is black metal...that guy hasn't got a clue what he's talking about, about anything...how he can put those examples out for gothic metal and omit Katatonia, Cradle of Filth, Moonspell, Rotting Christ, Graveworm, Anathema or Charon is beyond insulting. And Epica is gothic metal, not symphonic metal.

I usually have a pretty good handle on what constitutes a metal subgenre, but I've always struggled with gothic. From what I've gathered, it seems to often be doomy, but with a noticeable synth element.

The keyboards are essential, for sure. Some people when H.I.M first came out, classified them as gothic metal...I'd reluctantly agree with that, even though it's more mallcore than anything, really.

Gothic is Kinda my thing, and The 69 eyes and HIM almost ruined it for me but thankfully Bam is not on TV anymore and HIM hasn't made a good album in years.

Finland is like my Graceland

I'd always thought of Rotting Christ as more of a melodic black metal band than anything. I can hear the gothic influences, though.

Black and the harder Thrash are my genres of choice...bands like Gorgoroth, Dimmu Borgir, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Satyricon, Marduk, Carpathian Forest, Immortal...if Finland is your Graceland, Norway and Sweden are mine. ;)

Black Gothic

There's nothing black metal about it, IMO. ETOS is solidly in the melodic death metal camp. I can't say I've ever heard anyone describe them as black metal before.

I actually will agree with you on this one...the prominent keyboards and the gloomy lyrics would classify this band as symphonic death with a Gothic influence.

Meshuggah's latest album, Koloss, is one of the best metal albums i've heard in years.

In the past i've written-off the band as a strange-riffing, alien voicebox-speaking band without much to say. But it seems that they've taken their collection of progressive work from all their past albums, condensed it into a tighter, crisper package, and delivered a metal masterpiece.

-The album begins with the statement, "I am Colossus", and that one is begging for a remix.
-"The Demon's Name Is Surveillance" is a drummer's dream, but it is a difficult song to appreciate.
-The real intro to the goods is "Do Not Look Down", which sets the tone for the songs to come.
-My favorite song on the album is "Behind The Sun", which has an ultra-heavy riff and vocals to match. Song progression is also great.
-"The Hurt That Finds You First" and "Marrow" are also good.
-"Break Those Bones Who's Sinews Gave It Motion", the single youtube video release, features a riff i'd label as 'Korn Plus Another String' should've have been the single before "Demiurge", but who knows, maybe this album deserves another single.
-"Swarm" is another solid song.
-And then there's "Demiurge", the opening song from their latest concert at the Commodore. A head-banging masterpiece.
-Album wraps up with an instrumental "The Last Vigil."

What i like about Meshuggah is their frontman is one of the best out there and the 8-string guitars add a new dimension to the same ol' CHUNK-a-CHUNK-a-CHUNK riffs from past bands, while the solos are mostly non-traditional 'math metal' and some are utterly unplayable, but unique.

Koloss is by far their best work to date and if you're a true metal head, then i recommend you check it out.

I'll keep my ear to the ground like I always do and provide release date details when they become available...they're still recording the fourth track apparently, and Nergal is in no rush to finish the rest of the album, maybe a third of the album is underway, and he's still recovering from a bone marrow transplant procedure. Have heard though that a tour will accompany the release, scheduled for mid-2013.

Unplayable is a gigantic understatement...I'd venture to say Meshuggah is one of those bands whose actual unique sound will never be successfully duplicated.

Here are some of my favourites for metal with a sample track off each. I left off some of the really obvious ones everyone has heard (eg. Master of Puppets). I'm sure I forgot a bunch too.

Dark Tranquillity - The Mind's I (Melodic death metal)


In Flames - Whoracle (Melodic death metal)


Misery Signals - Controller (Progressive Metalcore)


Insomnium - In the Halls of Awaiting (Melodic death metal)


Septic Flesh - The Great Mass (Symphonic death metal)


All That Remains - The Fall of Ideals (Metalcore)


Daylight Dies - Dismantling Devotion (Death/doom)
