Old Mar 18th, 2005, 01:49 AM        Good metal groups
I want some names of good metal groups that aren't so mainstream that people make fun of them, but not so underground that people who listen to it feel superior. For examples on what I like, see below

Anathema (Serenades, Helm, don['t flip out on me)
Children of Bodom

Any other names to add to that list would be appreciated.

Therion, if you don't already listen to it, which you should
I don't understand why more people don't listen to Therion, everything they've done is so unbelievably awesome. Even if they are a pretty popular metal band, there's no reason I can see that they shouldn't be way more popular They're also on tour right now, so go get tickets you cvnts.
Fates Warning, especially the power metal albums
Suffocation, all the albums are awesome, but Human Waste stands out for me, especially the track Infecting the Crypts, which is, in my opinion, the best death metal song ever.
Cathedral can be kind of repetitive I find, but they have a lot of cool heavy sounding doom metal songs with lots of pretty melody :D
In the Woods... is good, listen to it.
Windir's pretty good too, Arntor Likferd and 1184 were good albums. To me it seems like a mix of black metal and power metal, which is kind of cheesy at first, but it'll grow on you.
Enslaved is great epic metal, Vikninglir Veldi was a spiffy album. But I'm sure there are other people who know a lot more about epic metal then me ;(
Also, Thyrfing is a pretty good viking metal band, Urkaft and Vannisevisor are solid albums, not too extreme in any way, but interesting.

Strapping Young Lad
"City" and "SYL" are both great. The upcoming "Alien" sounds promising too.

Soilwork
"Natural Born Chaos" is propably the best album, but "Figure Number Five" isnt bad either. Catchy songs.

Ensiferum
They only have two albums, but they are both awesome. They are a blend of different metal genres, but its mostly viking/death metal.

I'll give you stuff that will be easy to find:

Helloween - Walls of Jericho for good power metal

Omen - Battlecry, ditto

Hammers of Misfortune - The August Engine

now some death metal

Autopsy - Mental Funeral

Dusk - Morning Ressurect (also doomy)

and here's some progressive metal:

Heir Apparent - Graceful Inheritance

Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace


nobody will be able to make fun of these choices (although I don't see why you'd care about that, but then again, you asked so I took it into account.) 'cause these are either pretty obscure, or proven classics.

It isn't that I care about being made fun of. It is just that if I am going to be listening to music, I want respectable stuff. Not like bad rip-offs of other bands that I have never heard of.

Like I knew that. I'm a lazy American. At least Gamma Ray are entertaining. Better than Dream Evil anyday, woof.

I like all of Gamma Ray's stuff.

I use metal to help with programming (it has mind powers ). All metal is good, but power metal gives you skillz. Scrolling through my playlist, I have stuff like Dio, Avantasia, Dark Moor, Freedom Call, Manowar, Rhapsody and Stratovarius.

Alot of that is very embarassing though. Also Rhapsody. You should never listen to rhapsody anywhere in public.
