For whatever reason, I haven't really listened to Dream Theater since their Six Degrees album. When I do the math on how long ago that was released, I start to feel really old.

You need to wait for the chorus. Don't skip forward to it, just wait for it.

Never personally been a fan of straight Death Metal. But after a decade of listening to its sub-genres I suppose it was inevitably going to rub off on me.
Anyways, came across this three piece I have really been enjoying. I love how intricate and how much energy they have. The sound stage is huge for just 3 musicians. A bit heavier than my usual listen but if you need a pick me up or to just bang your head then here you go:

Yeah, that's usually the response most people have. :lol:

A friend of mine said "that's gotta just be effects. She's not really doing that?". Yeah, she is.

A co-worker sent me the link to that Jinjer video, and I liked it enough to go check out some of their other stuff out on Spotify.

It seemed to me like maybe there's just a touch of a chorus effect, very briefly, in a couple of spots; but yeah based on the live concert clips I found of the band, that's really her doing that.

5 years ago I would've said "not my cup of tea" too. Since then, I've come to terms with growled vocals. My acclimation process consisted of starting with one of Opeth's later, non-death-metal albums (Pale Communion), and working my way backwards through their entire back catalog, all the way to their debut (Orchid). Opeth, Benjamin Button style I guess. :lol:

Another recent (to me) metal find that I'm really getting into is Colored Sands by Gorguts. I find this album strangely, irresistibly compelling. It is somewhat dissonant (OK, maybe very dissonant depending on your definition), and sometimes feels like it is teetering on the brink of chaos. Yet there's also enough melody and structure to hold things together, and I think it may be that tension between chaos and order that I'm finding so appealing. Damn, this is good! If you're curious, check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LQd0Io ... 6KNgNk8Neg

Oh, and speaking of unexpected... track 5 on Colored Sands (if you make it that far). :wink:

And no, I haven't abandoned the other musical genres I enjoy. This past week I've also been chilling out to Djam Karet's new album A Sky Full Of Stars For A Roof (one of the tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSjno9GEF1k). And the latest from singer/songwriter Sam Phillips (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQUxFfz ... xIiVhL4V60).

It's all good. :D

The rest of album the original version of that track was on (called King Of Everything) is decent too; I looked it up on Spotify after someone sent me the YouTube link. That song is my favorite though.

Blotted Science - The Machinations Of Dementia (2007)

Somewhat demented (heh) instrumental prog metal.

The last track is the actually the second-to-last track played backwards. Not just time-reversed in editing... literally played backwards by the musicians. :lol:

Once I got past the initial shock, I liked the song. If I'd only heard it and not seen it, I'd have assumed it was two vocalists.

TesseracT - Sonder (2019)

Djenty prog metal. Generally positive impression on first listen, but doesn't blow me away. I picked up the double-CD deluxe edition, where the 2nd CD is a 3D "binaural" headphone mix. Haven't listened to the headphone mix yet, that'll probably happen either later tonight, or during my Monday morning commute.

Well... yeah I have been on a bit of a metal kick lately, so a fair percentage of my posts have been about metal bands/albums. But in the past 2-3 months I've also posted about Kansas, Beth Hart, Sam Phillips, Djam Karet, and Soft Machine, which aren't metal at all. OK... Djam Karet may skirt the boundary occasionally (more so in their earlier days), but the vast majority of their stuff is more "old school" prog rock and ambient.

Maybe post about some of the music you do like instead of complaining that there's too much metal? That might encourage other people with similar tastes to jump in and start contributing to the thread...

I, and others, have but all you have to do is read the past few pages to get why I don't really care to anymore. Even the random post of mine that isn't metal, or Ned, or whomever rarely if ever gets any chatter. It's just the metal folks talking metal regardless of the posts by others. I'm not really complaining. These are just facts. You guys can have your metal thread, it's fine, I just likely won't be posting in it. :)

Except to complain about metal, obviously.

For DancinJack:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcMNAxS3wHc

More seriously, I think I've mentioned in one of these threads before how I understand that metal isn't everyone's cup of tea. It's loud. It's got rough edges, and sharp corners. Sometimes it just wears you out, and sometimes it requires a level of honesty that seems to make a lot of people uncomfortable. Sounds like life to me. :D

A lot of that could be said for other genres of music as well, so it's not like I'm calling fans of other genres liars. People like what they like, and maybe the best thing about music is how it brings people together instead of pushing them apart.

Because people were people, and if there was one thing you could count on, it was that some of them would be weird. Or rather that all of them would be weird when circumstances happened to align with their own individual brand of insanity.

Got mixed feelings on the TesseracT "binaural headphone mix" I mentioned a couple of days ago. On the plus side, I think it does sound more "natural". On the minus side, the mix seems kind of muddy, with the vocals getting lost at times.

I'm a fundamental Zeppelin fan. A friend just got me to listen to Greta van Fleet. My brother laughed and calls them Greta Zeppelin. Pretty darned good vocals.
'Edge of Darkness' live from Lincoln Hall... Pretty darned good shredding very Zeppelinish.
'When the Curtain Falls'
'Black Smoke Rising'
'Flower Power'
