Stoner metal?

I recommend Mos Generator.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

I love Isis.  Very psychedelic. 
Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

When it comes to metal, I like mine in Tool form. Very psychedelic.
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

i grew up on 80's thrash metal and will have a soft spot for it forever.  however, if i didn't listen to it back in the day, i find it hard to get into now...with the exception of My Dying Bride and Machine Head.

i look forward to checking out all the links in this thread over the next few days.  my stoner buddy has been trying to get me into Opeth for years.  if you like them he also recommends Arcturus, Amorphis, and Borknagar - i know nothing about any of these bands.

here's what i go for...

I don't always listen to metal, but when I do, I prefer Meshuggah.

I love Isis.  Very psychedelic.

I knew you'd get them.  I just really finally got into the album they put out afterwards, "Panopticon".  Its a little too pristine-sounding for my taste; part of Oceanic's brilliance is the sound.  Its clean, but its got edge.  But the material on Panopticon is brilliant, although the clean vocals are ehhhh for me.

%% with alternated lyrics about a 1995 jeep cherokee that was also sacraficed on this tour.

I think I got it but he's such a spaz he'll probably never open this thread again

you should check out in the absence of truth, it's also a great album by them. 

Panopticon is their best imo.

Borknagar is AWESOME, although might be a little on the extreme side for people here.  They are SO melodic, though.  And they incorporate this really interesting kind of "folk vocal" over the black metal main vocals.  Wait til you get to the break at 1:40.  Sit through the blast beats, you'll be okay trust me. 



Amorphis I LOVE because they incorporate a metal element into a more traditional rock song format.

This might be one of my favorite songs, ever, period with some of my favorite melodies, EVER.

That Borknagar song reminds me of when I'm playing a tune on iTunes, and I go to a website with embedded music - and then I'm hearing both at the same time...

Goin' a little old school here, but I found these full vids online and thought I'd share.


1989. I swear, they must have toured for close to 18 months after JUSTICE came out. I've been listening/watching THE THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE on the reg, lately. So kickass.


I only got about 30 minutes into this one so far. Mucho offstage shenanigans.
