Ok, So I’ve tried to find a place to discuss metal on the internet in a way that evolves beyond just grunting “Slayer rules/sucks” in unison for close to a decade and I figured that this is as good an opportunity as any to take matters into my own hands and create a thread for posting/discussing/enjoying metal (hence the title).
So come on in, weary traveller! rest your battle axe against the nearest throne made out of skulls, mind the pointy band logos on the wall, and enjoy some civilized, critical but not overly serious discussions while banging your head to your favorite genre of music on the planet.
I might as well kick off the discussion by bringing up a record I recently came upon called “Dashavatar” by an Indian melodic death band called demonic ressurection.:
The record intrigued me because it centers around hinduism and Indian mythology while incorporating instruments normally used in Indian folk music like Sitar and Tabla. I’m a sucker for concept albums like this and it reminded me of the Orphaned Land record “Mabool” that dealed with similar religious themes. The music on Dashavatar is a good deal more aggressive than Orphaned Lands and maybe not as varied but fuck me if it isn’t still a great record.
What are some of your recent favorites?
