I've recently gotten into underground metal and have become hooked on various death metal bands such as Illogicist, Norther, Children of Bodom, and Amon Amarth, to name a few. Could you recommend more metal bands and help me find more new material to listen to?

Mar 15, 2010 11:04 PM ET #2 (permalink)

Would hesitate to call COB death metal. We really need a sticky thread for recommendations as Nat said!

Anyway, not sure how much dm you've already checked out so don't know how underground you want - I mean staples are Morbid Angel, Obituary, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation etc.

Mar 15, 2010 11:11 PM ET #3 (permalink)

yeah i've listened to several of those already (death, morbid angel, cannibal corpse). i'm just trying to expand my collection - sometimes it's difficult to start from scratch. apart from this site of course, do you know any good places to discover more music?

You know about Pandora right? I've found several new bands I like based on what I already listen to, it's pretty useful if you want some quick references. The lesser-known bands won't be on there but it's a good place to start.

yeah i've been using something similar - songza radio. it's definitely helped a lot!

Mar 15, 2010 11:24 PM ET #6 (permalink)

Decapitated, Nile, Woe Of Tyrants, Monstrosity, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Behemoth (some would call them black metal or blackened death metal but their way more death metal really), Centaurus A, Amon Amarth (melodic but still death metal), Through the Eyes Of The Dead. That otta get ya started.

Shit, you've all already mentioned my favs, just add Deicide to all aforementioned bands and that about does it.
A good place to find new bands is actually here at Metalunderground. I don't know how many times I've been looking for new bands to listened to and just got on here and read some albums reviews, picked some random good ones, and checked 'em out. For the most part it's worked out great.

My personal favorites are mostly melodeath.

Dethklok, In Flames, Arch Enemy (Angela Gossow's stuff for me, female-fronted death metal is AWESOME!), Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Dark Tranquility, Norther...

edit: OH! And it's not quite death metal, but Daath is awesome as well. Give their album "The Hinderers" a shot.

Yeah Cynic, I agree with you and myself, we really do need a stickied recommendations thread, haha.

Metalheadforever, I would definitely suggest you take a look at the Metal Archives and their forums. I've discovered a ridiculous amount of amazing bands just from lurking around there.

+1 to Nat. I'm Wet Pussy/MegaHassan over there btw. Used to be active in the death metal help thread like last year or so.

Lady Gaga, Jonas Brother, Justin Beibin, Adam Lambert, George Micheal, Seal, Mazzy Starr, PJ Harvey. I could go on and on. It just doesn't get any heavier than those guys.

Edge of Sanity all the way, favorite death metal band period. Crimson is an epic songalbumtrack.
ohh and Infestdead ,one of Swano's other side death metal projects is sweet too.
