Memnoch wrote:Iron Maiden - not so much nowadays, but Killers was the first heavy album I heard
Uriah Heep - David Byron era
Death - this is obvious
The Gathering - Mandylion was something completely different and a mind-blowing masterpiece and albums HtMaP? and onwards introduced another kind of dark music to me
My Dying Bride - again, a new kind of approach to metal for me
Primordial - Alan has to be the most intense performer in metal, both on stage and on albums
Within Temptation - Enter was easy to get into and the albums after that opened my ears to the more pop side of metal
Carcass - I've always preferred Carcass and similar, more metal grind bands over the hc or punk influenced bands like Napalm Death
Bathory - this is viking metal, forget about the cheesy, polished type (Amon Amarth and the likes)
Therion - from Theli to Secret of the Runes, this is how symphonic metal should be done - not too fond of the newer albums

Honorable mention (aka if I could pick 11) Enslaved

That song Linoleum essentially make me stop listening to the band forever. They aren't even on my radar anymore. That shit is fucking horrific to me. What the hell is that?
rwalters wrote:The problem w/ Lineoleum is that it's clearly marketed to chicks (AKA not me) and sounds nothing like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CB8MbuV2XWA
You can't fuck w/ 3:45 on. He's not wearing eyeliner trying to "rock it" like Dave Grohl.
You were at Katatonia / Paradise Lost in Chicago right? I think I saw you.
rwalters wrote:I'm from Cincinnati. I drive to Chicago for important concerts (to me) that come nowhere closer. Have done Meshuggah / Baroness and Katatonina / Paradise Lost recently. Maybe head there yearly.
rwalters wrote:You can take the sexy poll yourself. You would be ALL OVER HIM. Dudes don't put on eyeliner to NOT get chicks. Trust me.
