I was super into classic rock until I heard Avenged Sevenfold, they transitioned me into my metal phase. So here are some of my favorite metal bands:
Avenged Sevenfold
Atreyu
All That Remains
Motionless in White
Parkway Drive
The Amity Affliction
The Ghost Inside
Stone Sour(Couple songs)
Disturbed(very generic i know, but they have like 3 good songs)
and Iron Maiden


Let me know what you like/don't like/haven't heard of:)


I've heard of all of those bands; and, I like all of them to an extent. In my opinion, I wouldn't categorize the bands you've provided in the metal genre. Instead, I'd say they're all hard rock or something akin to that. The bands I initially provided are guttural to say the least. Really, I only find them appealing because of their instrumentals; and, they appeal to my impression of the metal aesthetic. I'm kind of engrossed in the "inaudible" portion of the metal genre, lol. Well, thank you for making a post. I appreciate it.


Yeah I see what you mean by 'inaudible' but I liked what I've listened to so far of your stuff. I definitely like the cleaner stuff more though. I think I just haven't been into this genre long enough to have heard about the inaudible stuff, but if you want underground listen to godspeed and some noise music. You might like noise, and godspeed has some audibly beautiful albums.

Also, the only hard rock band I'd say in there is Avenged, and even Avenged who has vowed never to scream again has some pretty inaudible death screamo in waking the fallen. I don't like the new ATR, only the fall of remains and this darkened heart so I would call ATR metal. And on the record of Motionless in White, they have pretty inaudible death music, just inaudible in a very different way than what you're talking about lol.
I respect your opinion and what you like, I'm glad you don't have a negative attitude towards my opinions like some others.

You're a cool dude with a cool music selection:) Since you seem to know what I like pretty well(I also like it mostly for the instrumentals, especially a7x, I like Motionless for the singing) could you give me some recommendations? Some bands I just don't like are:
Five Finger Death Punch
Korn
Killswitch Engage
Bullet for my Valentine
Cannibal Corpse/Rings of Saturn/Acrania

I've never been much of an elitist when it comes to music. So, I tend to very receptive and welcoming when it comes to a person's opinion. Since you liked the bands I mentioned earlier, I urge you to check out Delusions of Grandeur, Abiotic, KING CONQUER, and Upon a Burning Body. I'd like to offer more in the way of recommendations but not too many bands come to mind. You should check out metal playlists that people have created on Youtube and see if you enjoy anything. I will also recommend Shokran to you, which is a band with some amazing instrumentals. I recommend Shokran's "Supreme Truth" album, which is streamable via Youtube. I think you'll enjoy it!



Re:
I like supreme truth a lot, I'm liking the music you're suggesting a lot. Like a lot a lot, and I realize something now, I have no clue about all the different metal genres. I know grindcore is stuff like acrania and rings of saturn, and there's melodic death metal/heavy metal/death metal and all these things. I classify as a metalhead, with no knowledge of the genre. I just like music:) Some I don't like, some I like a lot. Some I absolutely love, and imo no song will ever be better than Exist by Avenged.
Exist is a song about the creation of the universe, it was inspired by the big bang. Almost 16 minute song but it is orchestrated beautifully and has an amazing closure by neil degrasse tyson. Man, if you smoke bud, listen to exist and close your eyes and you'll go on an adventure. If not, just listen to the song it's great anyways:)
BTW, so far Sands of Time is my fav song I've heard from these so far.


I don't really keep tabs on all of metal genres myself, so you're not the only one. I'm a simple person in the way that I view metal as just metal, and not much more than that. I can see why there are so many metal genres, however. I mean, it's really very diverse and there are many bands with mere subtle differences that set them apart while still being metal all together. I also just like music for what it is, and I'm not too keen on classifying bands themselves. In any case, if you also like instrumental metal (no vocals) I highly recommend that you check out Shades of Black and their album Ocean.


Mm see, here's my thing. I love the instrumental part of bands, huge reason I listen. But I also need vocals. I guess best way to describe my type of music would be this(and this is gonna be a sloppy description):
Having the guitar, drums and bass all in line and going full on death metal. I love screams, but only some screams. Most of my music consists of half singing and half screaming, but I definitely enjoy some good death shrieking lol, and I'd say my heaviest screamo band is ATR, or now, Shokran(love them btw). It's hard for me to listen to music where it sounds all over the place, like the metal aspect is there but it doesn't sound choreographed. I don't think Rings of Saturn is choreographed well, but Shokran is beautiful.

Also seriously, it's hardly metal but give Exist a listen. It ain't metal, but it's progressive and it's made me tear up almost every time I listen to it. It inspires me to make my own music and is what ultimately led up to me starting guitar 4 months ago.

After all I've listened to from this forum, I just smoked a bowl and now I'm listening to exist. 21:52 where I'm at, so great way to end my day. I got a few new albums I like and will listen to, great forum for any metalheads:)

Listened to Ocean by Shades of Black, at least some songs. Really do enjoy it! Seems as though there's a whole world of music left unexplored to my ears and I'm so excited to take my first steps.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. My goal is to discover more 'underground' bands that have yet to be really acknowledged for their music. I am really loving the instrumental side of metal of though; and, I look forward to discovering new talent in that regard. I'll also keep you updated on any new bands I discover.

Haven't seen anyone recommend them yet, but Crown the Empire. They are metalcore, so it's not pure metal, but they are absolutely incredible. (Their newest album has moved away from metalcore into more alternative, so I"m referring to the Fallout and the Resistance)

Listen to the Resistance straight through. It's a story album and the ending is absolutely incredible! Don't skip to it, go all the way through.

I like all these recommendations! I love many different types of metal and I haven't seen anyone recommend Blind Guardian, Jag Panzer, Therion, or Iced Earth.
