But I can tolerate the metal instrumental sound, and I even like it sometimes.  I like Boris (which sounds more experimental to me), and some of King Crimson's heavy explorations (like THRAK).  I also can get into some of the heavier math-rock bands like Don Caballero, which sounds very metal-ish to me. 



I'd point you in the direction of a band called June Of '44.... here's an example of what they sound like:

Folk Metal!?!

I was trying to decide between speedmetal and grindcore.  Then I couldn't resist searching for some folk metal, since it sounded intriguing and I hadn't heard of it before.  After hearing this song by Korpiklaani, I just had to give my vote to the folk metal genre.

I suppose the only nu metal band I know of is Limp Bizkit, who had a 'dj' (ahem) and tried to be a bit 'rap', but were more 'crap'. but I like the older rap/metal songs on beastie boys and the goats's first albums, and the public enemy and anthrax collabo from way back. I'd class Rage Against TheMachine as rap metal as well tbh. i think some of it's good

Melodic death metal, thrash, power, and progressive for me.  I guess I'm kind of a dork like that.   TongueOut

I can't answer this, because I don't like metal.  Wink

But while I have you metalhead's ears, maybe you can suggest something I might like.  What I don't like about metal, really, is the vocals.  It all seems to be either screeching or that silly "Cookie Monster" growl.  And don't get me started on the lyrics; I just can't relate to them.

But I can tolerate the metal instrumental sound, and I even like it sometimes.  I like Boris (which sounds more experimental to me), and some of King Crimson's heavy explorations (like THRAK).  I also can get into some of the heavier math-rock bands like Don Caballero, which sounds very metal-ish to me. 

So, are there any metal bands that are either purely or mostly instrumental that anyone can recommend to me?


As for pure instrumental or mostly instrumental, I can't really reccomend, but I know a few bands that are fairly decent that aren't all 'screeching'.
Fear Factory
Nine Inch Nails
Rammstein (but, they are German, so their lyrics would be in German, but really good, and some songs have a dance type beat to it)
White Zombie- Hell, being named after a Lugosi movie gets them a thumbs up in my book.

Me personally: Heavy, Industrial, Funk, Nu, and Thrash.

I don't really listen to metal as much as I used to, but the bands that either got me into metal or sustained my interest in metal include:
Motorhead
Anthrax
Metallica
Nine Inch Nails
White Zombie/Rob Zombie
Faith No More
Korn
Disturbed
Rammstein

Thanks DCA, I'm familiar with June of '44, I even have one of their albums somewhere.  They're actually from my hometown.  That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for, but it's usually described as "math rock," I guess.

Nu metal is pretty much on the way out.  Most nu metal bands have either changed a bit or faded away.  With any luck, we can just act like it didn't happen.

More recommendations for Rev. Powell. Not instrumental stuff, but not screechy and more bluesy/in the vein of Zeppelin:

Hey Circus: the first two sound like they could be backdrops for montages in any random 80s movie that got shown on USA Up All Night!

I know you consider that the highest honor that can be awarded tio any movie!  Wink

same town, cool. yeah it's not really metal, but kind of heavy and aggressive enough to be in a way. there's a few other bands in that genre like Rodan, b***h Magnet, Dis and Pitchblend I used to listen to. not sure how easy it would be to get hold of stuff like that now, probably out of print. maybe some blogs have albums up
