Title: Two good metal-ish tracks?
Post by: sarcasticsmoothie on 19 Sep 2009, 21:42
Well I got a Visa gift card a while back and it only has about $2 left on it so I might as well get a couple songs from Amazon or something.

Suggestions? I typically like most kinds of metal, though I'm open to anything with some substance.

Edge of Sanity - Crimson

There's your first one.

If amazon is lame and counts that as more than one track, I would go for something by Saint Vitus, maybe their cover of Black Flag's "Thirsty and Miserable".

Man, I would probably spend the 2 dollars on candy or something.

Be My Head is right though

Best Thirsty and Miserable cover is by Lemmy Kilmister.

Done. And the suggestion of funeral doom put me on to Elysian Blaze's Sigh of Night.

Would've gotten Edge Of Sanity but Amazon sucks balls for a living (no offense porn stars).  And I listened to some Saint Vitus and it was OK, but not more valuable than an equivalent amount of candy, which I am using as my point of reference.

Hope you liked the song.. Or wait, you had that song already or what? I didn't catch that part too good  :-D
But yeah... Everything done by Esoteric is pure gold.

The new Rammstein.

Aaaahh, C'mon man, you can't be serious.
First of all Till is bad at english. He's waaaaay more "brutal" singing in german. And even if the video is actually funny [the girls are sooooooooooooooooo hot], but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I listened to Esoteric for the first time a few days ago.  It was also the first time I listened to funeral doom and really liked it.

MUST RESPOND

Don't judge it all on the basis of Pussy. Pussy was meant to be more of a one-off fun song, similarly to Zwitter, I think. As for the other songs that are out: Rammlied, aurally, strikes me as a remake of Rammstein (the song) that's actually pretty good, while Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da (is this out legally?) is, in many ways, a throwback to the earlier sound that they had on Herzeleid and Sehnsucht. According to some reading I've done, the album overall is supposed to be closer to Herzeleid than Rosenrot.

No, I didn't have the song yet, though I did have their album "The Pernicious Enigma". I haven't had a chance to sit and listen to the whole thing without distractions yet though, which is the only good way to experience Esoteric (or funeral doom in general) in my mind.

Aye, that's indeed very true. Hope you will check out The Manical Vale because there are lots of people [with good reasons] that says that that's easily the best album they've done and that says a lot since the previous ones are also masterpieces
But The Manical Vale is... fuck man, beautiful and crushing 100 minutes of pure epicness

Please, don't missunderstand, I've been a hardcore Rammstein-fan for years and I like pretty much all their albums, I udnerstand that pussy is a joke-sound, but also we have to think that they have done better joke songs [Zwitter]. And I have read an article reviewing each song and it seems that it would be one of the most variable cds they've done. so I'm still very excited. :-D

Pussy is so typically Rammstein that I can't understand the issue. It's over the top, rancid and disgusting in lyrics and video and musically ... well, it sounds like Rammstein. Instantly recognizable ...

And we're so hijacking this poor fellows thread.

What else are good metal tracks ...

Maybe the riffs, but they have never used a keyboard that sounded so chessy/happy/crappy Techno shit. Noit Rammstein-like at all. The cold and mechanical sound isn't there... The first time I cheked the song I swear I thought I was listening to KMFDM

First time I heard it, I only believed it was Rammstein due to the unmistakable sound of Till's voice.

And of course it's over the top and rancid. What else can you do when you're parodying German sex tourists?




(Incidentally, between the video for Mann Gegen Mann and Pussy, I have to wonder what these guys' wives are like. I mean, some of them have kids.)
