I got the idea from Metal Archives to do a Metal Help Thread. What it means is that, instead of flooding the forums with simple over-used Metal Recs that dies out in a couple of days, we should all just post it here. Every metal genre that you might in need of assistance/recommendations of some sort shall go here.

So yes, easier access to get what you want. Pretty much everyone here listens to Metal so you, the one who seeks the music recs, should never worry of not getting answered because pretty much everyone here has something to throw.

If its a bad idea, then delete it. If it is a good idea, start commencing the RECS!

No, that's different. The idea is there, but its too cramped. The idea of this thread is to just get rid of the threads that ask for help on finding Metal bands with a distinct sound. Like for example, we have threads at the moment called Non Evil Metal and Acoustic Metal. Just to save more space on the boards, we should just start posting it here.

I hope this works as well.

Well I'll start this thread. I'm looking for Doom bands in vein of Witchfinder General and Pentaram (US). Classic Sabbath style Doom.

You should check out Krux, allthough I suspect you might already know of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEaOri0Z4gk

EDIT: Hmm, this might not be what you're looking for though, it's Candlemass style (but better imo)

Man, Morbid Angel's style of Death Metal is pretty unheard of, at least for me. They have the whole dirty sludgy feel of Death Metal that no one can imitate. Your out of luck if your looking for bands in the same sense as Morbid Angel, sorry Guitarman700.

For Symphonic Metal, you might like:
Rhapsody Of Fire.
After Forever had been getting a lot of buzz in Symphonic Gohic genre, you might like them as well.
Limbonic Art is my favorite Symphonic Black Metal band, you might like them.
Turisas- Folk/Symphonic Metal

Actually, I might be saying this since they are one of my favourite bands, but for Morbid Angel style death, try Bloodbath. And no, not the first 3 records, but Unblessing the Purity wich was released earlier this year is definetly in the morbid angel style, and the fathomless mastery will be another step in that direction. Allthough, it's not that sludgy morbid angel style, it's more similar to faster songs like for example this means war, etc.

Thanks Vince, I appreciate the response . I checked out the bands. They seem a little "evil" to say the least, anything that sounds alot like Protest the Hero , I guess we would be channeling into MathCore now wouldnt we ? huh.gif

Nah, not really an evil band though. Lots of philosophical things about life in general. Protest the Hero sings bout those stuff as well so I figure it would be right on your alley haha.

Hmm check out Candiria, Shai Hulud, and Dillinger Escape Plan if you want mathcore/hardcore stuff.

I love ABR so I may be able to help on this one. Try: I Killed The Prom Queen, As I Lay Dying, Bury Your Dead, Sky Eats Airplane, Emmure, Whitechapel, Winds Of Plague, Suicide Silence, The Warriors, Veil Of Maya, Born Of Osiris. Any of those hardcore metal style bands pretty much fit in the same category but ABR have their own distinct sound so its hard to match something up perfectly.
