    @FuzzyDucky I never said machine head are my favourite band....

    I said metallica were my second favourite for many years. Sorry for the confusion.

    For note Iron Maiden are my favourite band! Been a maiden head for 27 or so years now since I was about 6/7 yes old.

    Machine head might just make my top 10 but maybe not. As I say, the 3 studio albums I own are not nu metal and they are heavy imo. Not death or black metal heavy, but I have never been too keen on the vocals of such sub genres.

    Nu metal I'm is a stupid sub genre, as in my mind it is bands like Linkin Park, papa roach, sum 41. But others would through in slipknot who I cannot put in the same bin as the other 3!

    @DakeyrasUK Ah, I misunderstood you, sorry! To be fair, if you love Machine Head you really do need to get Burn My Eyes, even as someone that (obviously!) doesn't like them it's streets ahead of their other records.

    On Maiden we can agree at least... They were my first true love! And I last listened to them at the weekend (Somewhere in Time and Powerslave).

    All those bands I'd throw under the nu-metal bus. MH's The Burning Red is defo nu-metal. Not to mention their haircuts!

    @FuzzyDucky maiden are my most seen band, prob at 12 or 13 gigs now.

    I knew my wife was the girl for me when engaged I came home to hear my bedroom window open and maiden blaring out whilst she sat writing uni essays!

    @FuzzyDucky Machine Head with Burn My Eyes were certainly sold as a band doing something hyper modern and if not groundbreaking definitely setting themselves at the forefront of metal coming back after grunge and hair metal.

    Nothing is as heavy with such clarity in mainstreamish metal from 1994. Given grunge rules the rock airwaves at the time it was fresh as hell.

    Sepultura might be a similar age as Metallica and Slayer but they're not peers at all. Or weren't until the mid-90s at least. Slayer and Metallica were both big international acts before Sepultura were anywhere. It's not til maybe Arise that they made much headway to a big audience.

    They are brilliant though.

    Oh and no throwing slipknot under the bus. They are in my top 10 for sure! Not for albums 3 and 4, but the first 2 and 5th are superb fits for my tastes.

    They also have consistently put on suberb live performances the 5 or so times I have seen them.

    I don't think anyone doubts Slipknot came out of the numetal era with far more credibility and a much more substantive backcatalogue than anyone would have predicted, arguably the strongest of any new big band from that time.

    I'm not a huge fan but the third album and their live shows get my vote

    Shameless plug - show is at the Scala in April 2019. There be a spare ticket. We can bicker about how I like Slipknots Vol 3, how I'm a dreadful shit for only coming to metal when I was 28, what an awful cunt I am for being indie in my teens and how I remain such for my post rock tastes now etc. I'll still buy you a pint

    Edit: pint not oint. None of youse is getting a ruboff as a bonus

    Davidian and Old are both masterpieces

    From this Day is a terrible song but also one that caught my attention in my teens and is partly responsible for me getting into metal, so there is that.

    Say what you will about From This Day at least it's not a Drowning Pool b-side like Crashing Around You

    Never understood this logic.

    It's like saying "turns out she had a bigger cock than me and out my ass to sleep, but she was the first girl I slept with".

    My first game was Super Mario Bros. on the NES. My first three metal albums were Master of Puppets, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son and Peace Sells... These still get revisited because they're good.

    I don't think it counts as a nostalgic reminiscence if you only acknowledge the critically acclaimed rather than embracing and celebrating the stuff you actually enjoyed at the time

    Next stop on that road you'll be demanding "objective" reviews or something robotic like that

    Not everyone gets straight into the good stuff... At the time I liked it, I wouldn't listen to it now. Guess it just caught my attention.

    It's more like if the first person you slept with was hot but a horrible person.

    Machine Head though... Have a few great songs and a lot more average to shit ones.

    The first track is a total waste but the remainder of the album is great.

    Henbane is still their best, closely followed by Spectres Over Transylvania, but this bangs and bangs hard.

    Primordial - The Gathering Wilderness

    Bathory-esque Irish folky black-ish metal. If you haven't done across them before, the first track on this album absolutely raises hell. Thunderous. The whole album gives me goosebumps and they're unquestionably the best live band I've ever seen.

    So desperate am I for a Mgla fix that I've turned to Batushka.

    It's... Ok. Gimmicky. Kinda like a more pompous Sargeist (and y'all know I love me some Sargeist). But somehow it doesn't seem as... liturgical, maybe, as I'd hoped.

    Been having a mix of old and new recently.

    Metallica - Ride the Lightning
    Slayer - Reign in Blood
    Slipknot vol 3
    ACDC - Let there be Rock (Yes I know not metal, sue me)
    Metallica- Hardwired....to Self Destruct
    Deafheaven - Ordinary corrupt Human Love
    Vein - ErrorZone
    Ghost - Prequelle
    Visigoth - Conquerors oath

    The last 4 all released this year I think. I've been out of the scene for quite some time now so will have to look back through this thread and add some more to My spotify playlists.

    I tend not to care for Primordial too much (way too much widdly guitar noodling that goes nowhere), but "The Coffin Ships" (which is a reference to the Great Irish Famine) genuinely leaves a lump in the throat (me being a Paddy and having grown up looking at the docks of a small costal town where fucktonnes of people left for NA during the Famine years - there's a heartbreaking statue in the car park beside the quay there).

    Think they're mainly on the festival circuit now.
