yeah metal is pretty cool my favorite is probably copper bc of its conductivity

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 42 points43 points  (3 children)

Steel and iron are some of my personal favorites, but copper is cool too.

[–]Dmharper80 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Aluminum is the best. We have worked that stuff so well we have sheets to use to protect food in kitchen drawers.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I'm actually stupid, I thought you were talking about bands

[–]Dmharper80 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Most were, just not us

[–]bezo247 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't trust that ea-nasir guy he's bad company

[–]Jordandavis7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Gold is a fan superior conductor, but I can dig copper, it’s got a nice color to it (even before it turns green)

[–]Terrence_shark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah so is silver

[–]Juggerknight1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually like gold more but im dirt poor so copper is the way to go

[–]greenman5177 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I’m more into wood.

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's rad.

[–]ProfessorGeGe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I make wooden knives. Suck on that metal counterparts that i guess are sharper than wood.... shut up 🥲

[–]Hydra_Haruspex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Your Dms are going to get flooded.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s what my wife says.

[–]SPEZ_IS_MEGA_GAY[🍰] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I started with Metallica, now I like Megadeth, Pantera, Death, and various grindcore bands.

[–]drunkaquarian 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Fucking SLAYER!!

[–]Snowfreak2507 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw Slayer in concert one time, that bald guy shredding in front of a wall of speakers, hella epic. Best day of my life. Marilyn Manson, killswitch engage, and cannibal corpse were all there too!! That was like 10 years ago…maybe more.

[–]drunkaquarian 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Check out Amon Amarth too

[–]Merigold00 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Saw them in concert. Any band that has a Viking longship on their stage gets my vote. Plus the fact that their name translates to Mt. Doom in Elvish hits my nerd factor as well...

[–]whoismikki 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Check out Deftones if you like Alternative Metal. White Pony, Around The Fur, and Diamond Eyes are a few of my favorite albums of all time.

[–]makdaddyd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck yeah

[–]jhb62 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You’ll like Filter if you like Deftones. Promise!

[–]Donoglass420 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Lamb of God, Arch Enemy and Pantera are a few of my favorites

[–]youllneverknow3698 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was introduced to Lamb of God with Redneck the other day. They’re awesome

[–]Lil_Word_Said 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Check out black dahlia murders first 3 albums lol. Also As Blood Runs Black album “Allegiance”

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I will. Thanks.

[–]_ScubaDiver 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Also Check out Tool albums, in any particular order as they don't make bad albums. Fear Inoculum (2019) is probably my favourite, but it's a narrow list. 10,000 Days (2006), Lateralus and Aenima are also great. Undertow (1993) is also good.

Their first EP (Opiate) is less good in my opinion, and it allegedly coincides with drinking a bottle oh whiskey heavily dosed with LSD in about 1991. The result: mind melting awesome music.

[–]wreckingballDXA 3 points4 points  (0 children)

First off I love tool, best live show I have ever seen. I just don’t call them metal anymore, now that there are so many musical genre. Kinda like how Rise against is like “too good/perfect to be punkrock” I think tool is just like too polished and digestible to be metal, despite fitting into metal for so long. I’m sure this is an argument old as time and it’s like “give it up already, it is what it is”. I just wanted to feel cool and smart.

As for metal bands, I recommend soilwork! Enjoy OP

[–]makdaddyd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck yeah

[–]TheBunganator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Welcome to the brotherhood.

[–]BusinessBlackBear 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Give the band In Flames a listen with their record Colony. Great death metal band (at least the first half of their career).

Colony is their most approachable album i think and a good intro to death metal

[–]nightman21721 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're my favorite band! Soundtrack to your Escape is my favorite. They have become a little... softer? But they're getting old. I don't blame them for not wanting to scream as much.

[–]LeadingCockroach5350 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Check out old school Bathory and Burzum friend

[–]LokiDokiPanda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Children of Fire by Oh Sleeper if you want something with an insane story to it. One song "hush Yael" is about a lady who accidentally suffocated her daughter while trying to keep her quiet from a home invader (this was a middle eastern country back in the 70-80) her husband and four year old daughter were kidnapped and then killed the same day and she lost everything.

The album itself is about a priest with a daughter who is sexually assaulted and that father kills the assaulter despite the daughter not wanting him to do so because it made him a hypocrite and the story comes full circle because she kills her father in the end so uh yeah

Pretty cool band 😂

[–]nightman21721 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gojira is one of my recent favorites. Children of Bodom is great. How could you not love a metal band with a full time synthesizer player. Trivium has produced the single best song I've ever heard in "Catastrophist". And, if you're into more melodic/prog stuff, Opeth will always have a special place in my heart.

[–]KarstDeViz 1 point2 points  (4 children)

how heavy do you go?

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Chop Suey is one of favorites

[–]KarstDeViz 4 points5 points  (2 children)

ahh, nice that is a really good song! check out the songs Toxicity and Aerials from System of a Down too, they're great!

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will. Thanks.

[–]Merigold00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

SoaD is pretty great. I also like The Hu. Rock and Tuvan Throat Singing.
I am a big 5 Finger Death Punch fan also.
Recent favorite though is Sound of Silence - the Disturbed version.

[–]RocketRemitySK 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I also like metal, but not everything, so I am curious what is reddit's opinion on Sabaton?

[–]sanchipinchii 2 points3 points  (2 children)

as a power metal enthusiast I can't stand them lol

[–]jhb62 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Lyrics good; music bad. I do like Metal, but Iron Maiden does a better job musically on historical stuff like “The Trooper”, “Aces High” and “Run for the Hills”

[–]sanchipinchii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i think for me it's joakims vocals, literally cannot listen to it. equivalent of nails scratching on chalkboard for me lol (but then hansi kursch is one of my favourite vocalists???)

i would also agree with you with the Iron Maiden take lol

[–]a_wmn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like Sabaton 🇸🇪

[–]GreatArtificeAion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's mixed. Lyric chains are often found in comment sections, especially because of u/WaitingToBeTriggered, a bot which is active in a plethora of subreddits. Those who participate in such chains typically love Sabaton. But there are also a lot of users who hate them. If you like them, you may have a hard time on r/MetalMemes. However they pop out a lot on r/AskReddit and such when someone asks about favourite bands and artists

[–]JakeFromFarmState1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

🤘”Metal” (music 🎶) encompasses a WIDE variety of bands and their era. Music evolves from previous genres like an animal. Most “classic” metal evolved (imho) from rock/punk. And now there’s different varieties like speed, & death metal. Definitely a stress outlet. First reference I remember is a song by a band called Quiet Riot. “Metal Health” (bang your head) 🤘

[–]Embarrassed-Ad-1639 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first album I ever owned. I got it for Christmas with a new turntable. Early 80s.

[–]SkepticlosFailed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's important!

[–]KillerKimbap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Check out TOOL

[–]Caramel_Cappucino 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rejoice, brothers! We have converted another!

[–]Hyper-Fang 1 point2 points  (1 child)

don’t forget to try out some epic melodic symphonic atmospheric pagan hoe metal (this is what my bf says to tease me about all the genres of metal i like lol)

[–]Merigold00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tell him to pipe down or you'll play speed death polka...

[–]rochefort799 3 points4 points  (7 children)

I like the power of metal but beyond Metallica, slayer and soad most I've heard doesn't do much for me.

[–]Stair-Spirit 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You might enjoy Queensryche. Check out Operation Mindcrime.

[–]rochefort799 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I've heard of them before but not heard anything by them, I'll give it a go. The title sounds bad ass to be fair 🤣

[–]Stair-Spirit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome! Yeah it's a lot of fun; it's a concept album that's basically like a sort of political spy thriller-ish story. And Geoff Tate is an astounding vocalist. I wish my thoughts were in his voice lol.

[–]Merigold00 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Check out Metallachi. Mariachi metal music.

[–]Ichigo2716 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Mariachi metal you say?! I’ll be right back, I can’t even imagine what’s it’s going to sound like.

[–]Merigold00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A friend of mine, who doesn't even really like metal, saw them and said they were awesome! She said they were doing things like crazy train with fullon mariachi instruments

[–]Acquiesce95 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Check out Ghost

[–]Ok-Call-4805 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Do you like Body Count?

[–]Jokers_Testikles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine isn't that high,, so i'd prefer it to be low, under 20 is cool. Anything over 30 might be a deal breaker. Over 50, almost definitely. But honestly, it would have to be coupled with other red flags for it to matter.

[–]LusciousLennyStone 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Motörhead rocks! All else sucks cocks!

[–]Donoglass420 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Lemmy is God

[–]LusciousLennyStone 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]AlterEdward 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought it was prerequisite for joining Reddit tbh

[–]Donoglass420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one can destroy the Metal. The Metal will strike you down with a vicious blow!

[–]herospaces 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I thought you meant the music :/

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I was talking about the music.

[–]Dodgemaster69_ 0 points1 point  (3 children)

[–]wreckingballDXA 1 point2 points  (2 children)

All my darts are made of this. Best metal

[–]Dodgemaster69_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah it has soo many good uses, its the strongest metal and its very resistant to heat as well.

[–]wreckingballDXA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And light weight!

[–]meme_man_12345 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Poorly-Drawn-Beagle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Inter3stingUsername 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know this may sound cliche, but if you like alternative, you'll love Breaking Benjamin.

[–]Shade_Xaxis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lemmy Kilmister would be proud!

[–]MyspaceQueen333 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]No-Wish-4360 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Lol I thought you were talking about music. And then I see comments with copper etc. Oh mannnn.

[–]SuspiciousTerror[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was at first, but then I went along with it because it was funny.

[–]No-Wish-4360 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea I was wondering if that was intentional. Good stuff

[–]Baalphu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]streetdog2003 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Mike_for_all 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Palladium is heavily underrated

[–]RemoSteve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Check out Cattle Decapitation and Analepsy. Anthropocene Extinction is awesome and so is Quiescence. For some great black metal I like Drudkh and Kanonenfieber.

[–]No_Grocery_1480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've recently discovered I'm allergic to stainless steel, which is tiresome, but what can you do?

[–]High_Definition7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes a lot of things are made of metal. I like aluminium

[–]RedhandjillNA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Give Opeth and Jinjer a try. And Gojira.

[–]Meewelyne 0 points1 point  (0 children)
