    New Hath album called Hive was released:


    edit: just realized this is actually their 2015 ep, it was just released on spotify. Still worth a listen though.

    Years from now, when we’re all long gone, there are going to be heshers spending pages of these forums debating why there’s a Paddington 2 link in the opening post of their new thread. I shall be chuckling from above (or below).

    the re-release of clayman is amazing because they somehow created an album where only the choruses are good so i guess it's the lucky charms of melodic death albums everybody i don't think i set that up very well i mean like only the main thing is good nevermind im going to go die on a hostile alien planet

    p.s. soulbound made my spirit transcend

    Don't the metal threads go back earlier than those? I was an active member before I got accused of buying my music at Hot Topic (for liking In Flames, IIRC) and left in a huff. I guess all of the forum posts from before 2006 are lost in the ether.

    From what I remember there would have been threads going back to around 2003 or 2004.

    When I first found these forums a few years back, I went through all the old threads collecting album/artist recommendations. There were threads on Last.fm that went back at least to early 2005 (maybe even earlier) if I remember correctly. Those have all been scrapped now (as you can see by following that first link in the list).

    Also, @Campy, maybe change the opening video to something like the below to keep with the theme.


    And, yes, I just went on the Metal Archives and searched for a song with "ist Krieg" in it.

    I was around on the forums then, but probably missed the thread. Not least by not recognising what it was; this remains the only place I know that uses the term "hesher".

    I was definitely on the forums in the early 2000s (lurking as far back as 2002, not joining until 2 years later) and occasionally saw the metal threads, but I wasn't big into discovering new bands at the time. I don't think I started regularly reading them until this past decade. Your anecdote probably illustrates another reason why I didn't delve too much into the metal threads back then. :)

    I like Cloud Connected and Dawn of a New Day off Reroute, but I bounced real hard off the rest of it.

    Oh, I totally get why it turned a lot of people off, and it's a far cry from pretty much everything they did before it, but I don't know. There's something about it I dig. It's different, but decent in it's own right, IMO.

    Here's an epic cover for you, if you haven't seen it. Les from Primus, Bill from Mastodon, Danny from Tool, Steve from Mutoid Man/Cave In, and Claudio from Coheed & Cambria covering Rush. As tight as the band is (obviously), I was most blown away by Claudio's performance....wow, he killed this, I think he does it better than Geddy. Best 2 Minutes to Late Night I've seen, and I only see them because Steve is a townie of mine and always posts them on Facebook when he appears (or when you guys have posted them in the past thread).

    He's had some trouble with is voice down the years, though he seems to be on top of it now. I've seen them twice, the first time he was a bit ropey and unwilling to commit, the second time a few years later was honestly the best vocal performance I've ever seen live.

  • CampyCampy Registered User regular
    That's such a bonkers line up for Two Minutes to Late Night. Any one of those players would have been an absolute windfall, but all of them at once... Crazy!

    SNIPPETY SNIP

    Man, what a surprise this song was. Seems like a mix of their old Remission style stuff, with the (IMO excellent) vocals from Brann & more rock inspired sound from their newer stuff and then a whole new bit to their sound at the end. Like a whole different guitar tone or something at the end there.

    Definitely the most excited to hear a Mastodon album I've been in a while. And I say this as a rare fan of Once More 'Round the Sun.

    IIRC the mods decided at one point to change Metal to Hesher as a joke and it just kinda stuck. Could be completely off-base though. I think I stumbled into the thread around 2005ish and dumped unsolicited bad opinions all over the place - nowadays I keep that to a minimum and just lurk.

    I also just learned from the OP that Visigoth is a poster's band which is rad. One of my close friends independently discovered them a few years back and fell in love, which sent him on a heavy metal/power metal kick that's still going on.
