Favorites album of the year must be Steven Wilson - The Raven that Refused to Sing, deafheaven - sunbather TDEP - one of us in the killer. Was lucky enough to catch the latter a few times this year and they were as good as ever (embedded video being the crazier of the shows), a band I doubt I will ever get tired of seeing live, must be at at least 20 shows watched of theirs now.
Of a bit more calm music I'm still listening the fuck out of Kimbra - Vows, that is some quality pop music.>>217
Enjoyed a few of them live at festivals, but can't say it's anything I listen to casually at home. Love a lot of the bands that sprung out from those genres though.

This was the first album of theirs I listened, and holy shit what a way to introduce yourself to a new band! Dream House is honestly one of the most powerful opening tracks Ive ever heard and thats not to discredit to other songs on the album, which are also fucking legend.

Although, I must admit, I also love their current post-doom/depressive rock phase.

saw Katatonia live in Boston back in September.
There was this unbelievably hot girl who was standing next to me for the entirety of their set.
I couldn't work up the courage to say two words to her.
I am such a hopeless fucking pussy.
On the bright side, my band is gonna be featured in next month's Terrorizer. Maybe after that I'll be swimming in groupie poon.

If anyone likes chill stuff like that, Pinback would be worth looking into. They're one of my favorite bands at the moment.>>226

I'm a metal fan in general, but specifically focused on Melodic Death Metal, Doom Metal, and Progressive Metal, as you can see in my posts throughout this thread.
Slayer's got some pretty badass riffs.

music I like - though not all of it: Avril Lavigne, Apocalyptica, Slipknot, Green Day, Paramore, Avenged Sevenfold, Rammstein, Eminem, Orianthi, Chevelle, System of a Down, Taylor Swift, JoJo, Victoria Justice, and many more where those came from.

>Something about the vocals in this band is really interesting and enjoyable.
They were a good gothic/depressive rock band before disbanding in 2007. The vocalist then formed one of my other favorite bands, The Man-Eating Tree in 2009, before leaving it last year. Another great band too with similar style to Fall of the Leafe.

Hell yeah, they played Retrospect toward the beginning of their set. It was awesome
How about Uneven Structure?
Fawzi Bou Lawzi!!I3S9wsXL8A 639
Yeah definitely. Progressive metal, doom metal, and melodic death metal are basically my thing, with a little bit of other subgenres of metal from here and there, but those are the main ones.
>Woods of Ypres - a brilliant but short-lived Canadian doom metal band that tragically ended after their singer died in 2011. They were awesome.>Really sad stuff.
They also had some Type O Negative and Agalloch influence in their earlier releases.
Fawzi Bou Lawzi!!I3S9wsXL8A 643
Definitely. Metal is more diverse than you think it is. Many bands and subgenres don't employ guttural (harsh) vocals in their songs. Most of the bands I listen to use both cleans and growls, often on seperate songs. For example, Woods of Ypres has a lot of songs with a black metal growling voice, with the same singer.
What is really impressive, however, is the vocal range of some metal vocalists, who can do both extreme guttural vocals and excellent clean vocals, such as the Swedish vocalist Christian Älvestam.>Here's a song from one of the 5 bands he's in, and it's all in cleans.
Here's another with all cleans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVwX4Hot91s
Here are examples of his wide vocal range (both growls and cleans in the same song):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWWLh4TIpx8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXJxtp8inWg
Interesting. In fact, I'm trying to figure out why the embedded song would be considered metal at all and not considered hard rock. The second song as well. The last two songs feel more like what I would consider metal. I can handle the gutteral is smaller quantities within the song, but not through the entire song..it's just not my thing. >>644
I'm being serious and I've talked to a few other people and they seem to associate metal with the constant screaming as well (maybe it's why more people don't give it a chance)…but then again, the "metal" without it seems more like hard rock to me anyway. Also, i'm not crazy about that song you posted..more screaming. >>645
I like that, good sound bro, I've never listened to them so I will check this band out. I don't know how you find such small bands, but I like it.

>>646>Also, i'm not crazy about that song you posted..more screaming.
There is zero screaming on the entire 48+ minutes of that album.
Cornelius Tunt IV (47fe) 651
No, that's still singing. The dude just has a scratchy timbre, like Chris Cornell in Soundgarden. If he were just screaming, you couldn't measure the pitch.
Compare with actual screaming vocals
>For another change of pace, some relaxing math rock>>644
I've never been able to get into that style of singing. I can appreciate their talent, but it's just not something I'd listen to on a regular basis>>652
Yeah screaming isn't for everyone. Personally I've always liked it. Some people get used to it. And others never acquire a taste for it
Cornelius Tunt IV (47fe) 654
If you can't handle screaming, metal isn't for you.
Thantifaxath would sound ridiculous with any other vocal style. Ugly vocals for ugly music. It fits like a glove. It doesn't ruin anything.

What DAW do you use? And what do you use for strings and whatnot?
File: 1402469174867.jpg (41.21 KB, 570x583)
Pro tools 11. About to graduate with a bachelor in Audio Engineering and sound design so I have quite a bit of equipment. For strings I use a combination of Spitfire Albion, Native instruments Session Strings and Cinematic Strings 2.0 (though Albion pretty much covers them all). For Piano I use emotional piano by Soundiron or The Giant by Native Instruments.

>>748>About to graduate with a bachelor in Audio Engineering and sound design
That's amazing. Sometimes I wish I'd gone on to study this stuff more, but I know just enough to get by making demos haha.
I'll be looking into those plugins, especially for piano. I've played piano longer than I've played anything else, but I don't have any way of recording it right now
It's pretty decent I guess. lel. It gave me all the resources on why to do stuff and how but some of my favourite engineers didn't go to college or university for it, they just learnt to do it and honed their skills.
Buying a simple midi keyboard and a plugin or two is honestly one of the most useful things I ever did. Download a pirated version of ableton (or arrange in reaper) and you're set.
