I have been listening to Dream Theater and hardly anything else for the past 3 months and am still not bored of them.

Check out Muse, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, and some others listed here. Make sure to check out Orphaned Land, extremely awesome band.

What has happened to metal? It's freaking awesome. If you think it's bad now you haven't seen nothing, when I was growing up in the late 90's early 2000's all there was was Nu Metal, like Korn, Limp Biskit, Mudvayne, etc... there wasn't much good going on then. Now Mastodon has gotten popular, Machine Head, Opeth, Trivium, The Sword, High on Fire, many good bands have relesed great metal albums recently, just do some digging and you'll find something you like, I promise. smile.gif

since we're on the topic of metal...

i really like listening to metal but i cant stand bands that scream or growl, i know its popular but i just cant stand it. are there any metal bands out there that are good but dont have constant screaming vocals or vocals that are really low and demonic. like metallica for instance, they're a great metal band but james hetfield never screams or growls he just has a good metal singing voice and i can actualy understand what he says.

I felt excactly like you a couple of years ago. You've probably heard of Iron Maiden. Slayer also doesn't quite growl, they are maybe the heaviest band I know of that doesn't growl. Also check out Pantera, and maybe som glam metal like Motley Crüe (or early Pantera tongue.gif). Also there's a Norwegian band called Stonegard that you might like. And since you already like Metallica: check out Megadeth

I feel your pain... I got really into Metallica, Ozzy, Iron Maiden a little while ago. However, when I look in Guitar Player magazine, there are so many metal bands that I just can't stand. They are either too intense for me, or they are trying too hard...

I know exactly what you mean
In my opinion 80's thrash is metal perfected

One thing I can't stand is what I call the "Present Bands". Bands with names like In Flames, In This Moment, As I Lay Dying. I just don't think they sound good, I especially hate their vocals. I can't stand seeing these bands live because to me it just ends up sounding like garbled mess with someone screaming words at the top of their lungs.

If you ask me, metal has to be fast and aggressive but it must have a strong beat to head bang to. Once you get the drop tunning with the complicated lead parts and the double bass non stop... it's just too much, you know? There's no longer a strong and identifiable beat.

Thankfully I think metalcore is just a fad. Nobody will remember them in 50 years, but one thing's for sure. Metal bands, even after our lifetime, will list Metallica and Slayer and other early metal bands as influences.

That being said, I do enjoy bands like High on Fire and Lamb of God.
