I hate that I love As I Lay Dying’s music. Others in that genre (ABR, Parkway Drive, I Prevail, etc) are just too slow for me lately.
Anyhow, can anyone recommend music that is like AILD, but with 100% less “lead singer attempting to murder his wife”?
I loved Pantera and Metallica when i was in high school (ack - >30 years ago!) and had a chance to listen to Metallica and felt long dormant neural pathways firing again, but damn that is some slow and boring music.
@jerry I'm also a huge AILD fan
@ferds their music is REALLY good. The perfect blend of melody, speed, and non-whiny, belting vocals.
@jerry Have you heard of The Dillinger Escape Plan? They did an EP with Mike Patton what was brilliant (Irony is a Dead Scene)
@ExperimentV I had not heard of them. Will give them a listen.
@jerry It really is... I saw them last year, and it was kind of sad... I last saw them in 92.
I have Pantera stories I'll tell you sometime, but they have to be offline.
@jerry Have you tried power metal, brutal death, grindcore and stuff like that?
How do you feel about power metal? A few favorites of mine:
@Ent I’m not loving the music, but that video is amazing.
No worries, they've had 3 different female leads and differing styles to match their vocals. I'm more partial to their earlier work with Tarja, and my wife and I performed a tango routine to this cover of Phantom of the Opera they did while Tarja was still in the band.
For if this sounds better to your ear:
@Ent that’s pretty good. Thank you!
@jerry Try Gojira
