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
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.
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.
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..

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..
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
