I do like Pantera... ever listen to Down? They have Phil Anselmo on vocals as well as a few other fellows from different bands. They have a song I was obsessed with for awhile, Bury Me in Smoke... great song...


Down are extremely awesome. Even their mellow songs are great, such as "Stone The Crow," which is my favorite. Those clean but southern rock riffs are infectious.
There's also Superjoint Ritual, also with Phil singing, as well as Hank Williams III on bass.


I adore Stone the Crow... great song. I never understood why more people never got into Down, they really are infectious. I agree with you on that 1000%. I have never listened to Superjoint Ritual... I will have to check them out. I love Phil's voice. Really while I am at it, I ought to look into Hank more...


If you love Phil's voice, then that's one thing you might be disappointed about with Superjoint... his vocals are pretty well shot during this period. It was all the drugs and alcohol and you could also hear the stress it had on his voice during Pantera's Reinventing The Steel album. It was a dark time for him. Superjoint is also more of a hardcore punk band than just pure metal, a way different sound than with Down.H

And as for Hank III, he's amazing. It's old school style country and he really knows what it's about. More influenced by his late granddad than his father, Hank II, was. He is also good for doing most of the instrumentations on his albums. I highly recommend the album Whiskey, Weed & Women.

I don't really care for subgenre labels. Let's just say really heavy and fast stuff, sometimes with a dark sense of humor.

Brain Drill
Deeds Of Flesh
Nile
Dying Fetus
Guttural Secrete
Disfiguring the Goddess

Wow, I had almost forgotten about Celldweller until you mentioned it here. I was big fan when their first album came out ages ago, and I liked Klay's old group Circle of Dust. I kind of stopped following them after I got tired of waiting for the 2nd album to come out, are they still putting stuff out?

Yes I do. Mostly thrash, but I also love pretty much any other kind of metal. My two faves are Testament and Black Label Society. Other than that, I love tons of thrash metal, doom metal, black metal and death metal (as long as it's not the same ol' gore...ya know? Cannibal Corpse and a few other bands are okay cause they kinda invented that, but now it's kinda like corpse paint...it's getting old, and a trend. I like Nile, Necrophagist, Behemoth, Vital Remains, Decide though.)

I'll reply with the obvious Metallica, Black Sabbath,and Nirvana, along with my recent discovery of Devin Townsend (excluding his SYL albums)

I'd like to find new bands but I can't stand the current trend of growling or screaming into the mike most bands today think is the thing to do.

Hmmm...let's see... I like many different kinds of music, but I grew up listening to Metal. I like the older stuff, mainly these bands in particular (some old, some not-so-old):

Sepultura
Pantera
Slayer
Megadeth
Iron Maiden
Korn
Tool/Perfect Circle
Mercyful Fate
Anthrax
Motley Crue
Guns n Roses
Metallica
Judas Priest
Accept (when Udo was with them, not the "newer" guy)
Venom
Celtic Frost
Metal Church
Faster Pussycat
Motorhead
Black Sabbath/Ozzie
Rainbow/Ronnie James Dio
AC/DC


These days, I tend to like more mellow stuff to listen to like Grunge/Alternative (Nirvana), Trip-hop (not Hip-hop) and regular old Classic Rock.
