Thats a pretty good song.

Yeah, is a bit slow. And he's probably bored. But its relaxing to go from what he's probably being doing to slow. Give him some time to chill. If you know what i mean.

I love Doom Metal. :) Swallow the Sun is a good band. If you are really into very very slow metal, check out "Teeth of Lion Rule the Divine" EXTREMELY slow metal. Even slower than Swallow the Sun. Also Sunn 0))) I'm not too familiar with them, but they are slow (i don't think they have drums though)

I'm not a huge doom metal fan, but the song was pretty good. Reverend Bizarre and Mournful Congregation are my favorite doom metal bands, the latter being very sloooooooooooow.

How do you count this? I'm having a really hard time finding the one, unless it's just too slow for my brain :)

*edit* Oh god, this style of singing is even worse in a song this slow.

I can respect that. Personally, I like growling, but much of the time I like a combination of growling and clean singing better. Bands like Folkearth, Falkenbach, and Menhir use clean singing a good portion of the time, but when the song calls for aggression, they growl. It all depends on the context. I wouldn't want to hear, say, Pungent Stench, using clean singing. It just doesn't sound right with grindcore. But I love a good power metal band, where a large emphasis is placed high-pitched singing much of the time.

Anyway, back to doom metal. To anyone who doesn't like growling, but likes what they heard in Thrash Drummer's video, Reverend Bizarre doesn't employ any growling. They're a little older school and have some Sabbath-y moments, but an excellent band.

This is singing. Maybe not the kind you like, but it is a style of singing.
One question I've always had is why singers in metal bands like this even bother writing lyrics. You can't understand a word they say. He could be growling about rainbows and sunshine and we'd never know.

The songs and lyrics still have meaning, even if the listener can't understand.

Though it helps to have a copy of the lyrics to read while you listen ;)

Bingo.

Not really my bag, but a good band nonetheless.

EDIT* Ok, Larlev, your posts are just narrow-minded nonsense. Like so many other arguments on this forum, to like this music is purely subjective. For you to make a statement like 'If you are going to sing...sing....no talent whatsoever in the vocals' is just letting everyone else know how ignorant you really are.

I mean, why would anyone like something you didn't think was good? hm?

It's just another form of artistic expression, some guy comes here to share his love for it and you shoot him down. Way to go pops.

Ya, I was going to mention the Melvins and even Type O Negative already has this down. Their stuff is much better in my opinion.

it took me a while to figure it out, but i think its 4/4
Between each crash (listening to his ride notes) I get sixteen beats, and the snare is on 5 and 13, so its just very slow sixteenth notes. The bass drum notes that slow make is hard to figure out, and i think i heard some triplets in there which makes it all the worse, but i'm counting 4/4 to it and its all working out.

I think he has a displaced (right word?) backbeat in there that makes it feel like something else as well. I think that's what confused me the most.

I wasn't big on that particular video, but I checked out some others, and I really liked Descending Winters. I think one of the advantages of playing to the slower tempo (for the drummer) is that he can add more to a fill. For metal, yeah, it's slow.. but it's still pretty damn good.

However, I've never really considered keyboardists to be metal. :P

Anything goes these days and I think its cool. Now, music did have that older hair-band Europe who had a keyboardist, and some people considered them to be metal, I'M NOT ONE.

*sings*.. its the final countdown.

Oh god, thats gonna be in my head all day.

Hah.. Keyboards were widely used in metal of the 90s. The keyboard player for Manson was my favorite member of the band when I was into them years ago. Nine Inch Nails?

I think keyboardists fit in certain styles of metal..
In my opinion keyboardists sound best when they add symphonic parts to the song, like all of dimmu borgir's stuff. The only other thing they should be able to do in metal is blinding solos at the speed of light. (Children of Bodom). Other than those things.. nothing seems to fit the genre.

I like bands that have the effects of a keyboardist.

Keyboards are always fun, if used properly and without campy effects.



As for the band, I'm not a HUGE fan of doom but I can respect them as musicians and the drummer sounds very creative.

This makes me want to dig out my old video tapes of Noisy Mothers, which some UK cats might remember from the 90's. One sticks in my mind of footage of Dream Theater (!) at Ronnie Scott's (!!) with guest vocals from Barney of Napalm Death (!!!) covering Metallica's Damage Inc. (!!!). Awesome Vocals, awesome growler.

Sunn 0))) freaks me out, damn nightmarish music. I've heard they do shows in cathedrals that must be some kind tortured experience to live specially when they play with twisted guests such as Merzbow, Jazzkammer or Peter Rohberg.

Sounds like one of the songs from 'White 2'. Bass Aliens perhaps? I have that album and I used to like it a lot. I've still got it somewhere, maybe I'll break it out again.

They played in a cathdral near where I live in Norway. I regret that I never got to see them...
It would have been a creepy experience...

My favorite doom metal band is The Sword... They're supposed to be in the studio recording a new album but that could just be speculation. They're a lot different than these guys.

Ha i noticed that too, made me chuckle.

Sunn O))) are great, really haunting stuff.

I watched the video... it was good, uptil the point where the guys starts to "sing".

I really like metal music, im a big fan of bands like Pelican and Isis, etc, but this is just a bit boring for me.

That singer ruined it for me.

My god, why do people think that type of singing is cool?

I do think that from a drumming perspective, it would be tough to keep good time that slow. Hard to get into the groove

I listened to 3 sun 0))) videos and waited for them to actually start playing something...


...needless to say, I was disapointed. IT sounds like a 7 year old with a half stack. There was a trombone and a keyboard in the background. But all I could hear was

BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA,BLAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAA,BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, BLA, BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, BLA, BLA, BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAA....


I can't imagine anything more annoying. I feel like this isn't even actuall music, just noise that gets played at guantanamo bay as a form of torture.

Still listening to White 2 over here and still loving it. It's fantastic, takes the Eno concept of ambient backgrounds to the new generation. Brilliant.

To each his own I guess. I couldn't get past 2 minutes of it, I didn't like it.

I really tried to give it a shot, I listen to a very wide range of music, but I just couldn't listen to it any more, sorry.

@ fourstringdrums : it's difficult to count what he is playing because he isn't staying in time, he is fluxuating the tempo to much.
