Bands worth hearing thread

Here's an interesting one geographically at least; Taarma is supposedly from Zhob, Balochistan. Balochistan is a province of Pakistan and is extremely "underdeveloped"; mostly tribal. The people fight the infiltration of the government at every turn. It could be bullshit but is mostly credible. Anyway, here it is, fairly accomplished for a droning band I guess :/

There's lots of other little interesting ones, of varying quality:

-Burzukh
-Myosis: Personally don't care that much for them, but they are interesting.

And one non-metal favorite, highly recommended with the caveat that it has strong rock elements: 1 and 2

Edit: Headhunter D.C. is utterly mediocre, avoid.

I have yet to find a band worth hearing from the middle east. It seems as though the best metal bands come from developed countries or superpowers, AKA US and western Europe... there are a few exceptions.

So has anyone heard the new project from diSEMBOWELMENT members?

They're called Inverloch. Many know that they reunited solely with the intention to play "Transcendence..." at a few choice shows. Apparently they wanted to continue under another name to record more? As far as I know only the guitarist and drummer from the original lineup are present.

Inverloch - Shadows of the Flame

This is pretty promising stuff. Sounds like diSEMBOWELMENT in a sense (to be expected, surely), but I detect some Suffocation influence in the percussive riffing. The overall riffing style is a tad more chaotic than it used to be; reminds me a bit of Incantation, but not as 'rigid'. I'm also really liking the breaks for ambiance; reminiscent of past styles but dissimilar enough to stand on their own. I'll have to hear the EP in its entirety, but I really like this song. Could be a bit more adventurous, and maybe a bit dirtier production, but other than that I'm sold.
No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

Arghoslent represents the minority of melodic death metal artists that haven't forgotten about the death part. They combine the "war machine" rhythm of mid-era Bolt Thrower into the "heavy metal" melodic stylings of Dissection/Sacramentum.

They can be compared to another excellent artist, Infester(some of the most doomed death metal ever) in a way that the racist overtones of their lyrics have made them an outsider artist, arousing polarized opinions.

Arghoslent doesn't sound like death metal to me (apart from the vocals and occasional blasting). Mostly it just sounds like old Running Wild or Manilla Road.
No.

This^ Still amazing music regardless


Bands I really have been digging lately and worth the effort in checking out

BOLZER
MANIFESTING
BONE SICKNESS
CHRONIC TOMB
ASCENDED DEAD


All newer/up and coming bands that are crushing all those around them in their scenes.

Brenoritvrezorkre is one of the smaller but more interesting projects of Les Legions Noires, being ambient/noise BM.
Their attempt to execute the concept of somebody visiting Hell with an audio recorder in his pocket is IMHO more successful than anything that Abruptum has ever made.

The Mentors

Ostensibly tongue-in-cheek misogyny, rape, hetero sodomy and degredation content set to vanilla heavy metal music. The content replaces the gore and satan form of socially offensive stuff as if an alternative.

As it turns out, the front man affirmed his belief in the content which is another divergence from the all too common "don't take us too seriously" defensive responses from some other bands. He was busted for juvenile rape of groupie fangirls a few times.

Haha, I actually had asked because I had seen an episode of the Jerry Springer show online somewhere that they were featured on. Their frontman said he enjoyed rape and being raped, and the audience was so shocked. I found it absurd.

As for the music, that's kind of disappointing to hear....I'll check them out anyways but I was expecting a cross between GG Allin/early Dwarves type punk with metal.
No.

Blue Cheer (yeah this should be obvious, but I'm wondering what album I should start with)
The Mentors

NON are arguably the pinnacle of aggressive electronic music. I suggest a compilation of their more gripping material called Easy Listening For Iron Youth. Also, their album God and Beast is essential, especially the closing track.

Just start in chronological order for Blue Cheer! They manage to be both heavy and fun, like a slow Motorhead in that regard. 

Speaking of fun, it's hard not to find The Mentors hilarious. Their music is obviously silly, but enjoyable in moderation. Their You Axed For It! & Up The Dose double album is worth having around. Despite his eventually fatal alcoholism, El Duce was the finest troll that that world of daylight has ever seen.
"For better or worse, the internet truly is right next to the atomic bomb, marshall amps, crack, video pornography, AIDS and television news as the most fascinating invention of the past century... So many whacky things have become part of the picture!"

NON
God and Beast is incredible.  "Lucifer, Morning Star", "The Law", and "Between Venus and Mars" are some of the best electronic songs ever.  "Total War" is also great, of course, but it pales next to those three.

The rest is good but not essential.  If you want more, your best bets are "Children of the Black Sun" and "Back to Mono".
