Ashira, I really like Coma by Lantlos. Never heard of them in my life, but that Song has some dark feelings to it. Why do we human beings embrace that so much during certain times of our existence, is it the unknown, or just some Crowley #?

Funny thing is, not long after I grew out of Metal for a short period of time during my 20's, I got into Mountaineering, and lo and behold I found Crowley again, who was an expert climber back in his day. I own classic mountain climbing books which he shows up in. A lot of people are not aware of that concerning him. Strange Cat for sure.

Anyway, I am in my 40's, so I am not sure how old a lot you guys are, but I can still appreciate the hard, thrash, death, black or whatever one wishes to call it, heavy metal bands these days. It seems to me that a lot of the music that you like, I listened to the ones who paved the way for them.

Maybe I am wrong about that though my friend? If I am, then set me straight. Anyway to me, These guys started all the darkness. Not as hard as those before them, but they were the first ones to introduce it's style. This song playing in a black forest in Yosemite at Midnight, embraced with a girl that I first loved as a young Man. So many lawless memories.

Ok, Now I am getting weird! ~$heopleNation

That's awesome you liked that song, it reminds me of a very crazy, dark time in my life. If you have a look at the lyrics you might get a vague idea of what aforementioned craziness entailed. " Conscious coma", "Like a thousand crystals running through my veins, the poison benumbs". Not proud of it, but it happened and I'm not sure I regret it.

Well I'm on the downhill ( or maybe uphill lol ) side of my twenties, I know OP is about my age from earlier posts, can't speak to anyone else's age. But you're completely correct, black sabbath is cited as a huge influence to pioneers of metal subgenres from death to crust to sludge, pretty much all of it. So I feel like they definitely deserve a healthy dose of respect from anyone who likes any kind of metal.

Nostalgic nighttime weirdness ftw

Speaking of lyrics, this song has great lyrics imo

'The sickness of this world is destroying all the dreams, the fools are kings...'

The way of all flesh is one of my favorites, but not a huge fan of any of their other albums.

I really tend towards lyrics with some substance though.

Aw really? From mars to Sirius is what got me into them, haven't listened to their later stuff much.

May I suggest you never listen to Cattle Decapitation lol They were the first metal band I ever saw live (with cryptopsy and lord worm himself!), nicest guys but really #ed up lyrics.

I think I first heard them back in high school, if it's the band I am thinking about. Were they around in the late 90's?

I was able to appreciate from Mars to sirius after listening to the way of all flesh, but didn't like the promo copy I received when it was released. Eta: I also had a copy of the link, but still haven't listened to it. Can't believe that was ten years ago!

The violent stuff is too "easy," imo. It's not so much the content, I just like music that the artists pour their heart and soul into. If it can make me think, then all the better!

Technical ability mixed with heart and passion makes the best music for me, regardless of genre. Sometimes, that includes simplicity, patience, and restraint as well. Simple shock value doesn't interest me. Seen too much..

Yeah I do remember those guys, early 90's I believe. I think they were from Brazil or something.

Kryst the Conqueror!

Doyle and Jerry Only in in their band after The Misfits.
Sort of a big change for them as it was loaded with religious themes..
Anyway, some good guest names on the album they did and this has an Iron Maiden feel to it..

Yeah, Definitely has a Maiden feel to it. ~$heopleNation

That was pretty good, those guys sound really clean. It's like a mixture of Metallica and Death Angel. The Singer sounds a lot like the singer of Death Angel, but the music too. ~$heopleNation

I was a big fan of these guys back in the day. The lead singer Sean Killian, rubs some Metal fans wrong because of his punk rock like vocals, but these guys had a huge cult following. This is during a time (1988) when Metal was speeding up and mixing with Hardcore and Punk rock, which became speed metal, thrash or whatever you prefer to call it.

It was an interesting time. Even DRI who was a hardcore band, made an album called crossover, which was basically a speed metal album. Anyway, I remember seeing these guys below with Slayer & Testament in Oakland, Ca. Craziest pit I have ever seen in my life. Once these guys grow on you, you realize just how talented they were. These two are off The Eternal Nightmare album, by Violence. ~$heopleNation

Here is one of my favorite songs by Testament from back in the day. The solo is insane. Alex Skolnick was so underrated. ~$heopleNation
