Kells, have you ever heard of Ten Masked Men? Its a death metal band, that does covers of various pop songs. Its pretty hilarious actually, I suggest you check them out.

Some of their better covers include "Living La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin (that one's absolutely awesome, you can even find it on YouTube), "Push It" by Salt N Pepa, "Disco Inferno" by Bee Gees (I think), "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, "Eye of the Tiger", etc...

I can't really do death metal. Lately I've really been working hard to uncover my interest in metal, but so far I've only really been able to get into the doom scene as well as limited amounts of black metal. Death metal just doesn't really appeal to me.

Btw, the new Wolves in the Throne Room EP is definitely a good listen.

Ten Masked Men doing Michael Jackson's "Beat It" is an absolute riot!

Jeez...I've actually been expanding my musical taste like crazy the past couple of weeks. Funny thing is, it's pretty much *all* been metal. Here are some highlights:

Agalloch - This band started out playing folky black metal but over time has incorporated more and more post-rock influences and has turned down the black metal a few notches. Great atmospheric stuff.
YouTube - Agalloch - Fire Above, Ice Below

Evoken - Deep, dark funeral doom (or death/doom, some would say). Some of the heaviest stuff I've ever heard, despite how slow it is.
YouTube - Evoken - Quietus

Warhorse - Stoner/doom metal in the vein of Electric Wizard. Essentially Black Sabbath worship, cranked to eleven. Awesome.
YouTube - Warhorse - Black Acid Prophecy


Also, totally unrelated to metal, but the new Animal Collective album is amazing. It's experimental music somewhat along the lines of Pet Sounds era Beach Boys.
YouTube - Animal Collective - Daily Routine (Hills can Sea)

Normally the prospect of a techno version of a metal song would make me gag, but that was actually really well done. I guess the speeds just compliment each other.

So, my interest in metal has taken me to the late 80's/early 90's Swedish death metal scene centered around Stockholm.

Here are probably the best two examples of the style:
Entombed - Stranger Aeons off their second album "Clandestine"
YouTube - Entombed - Stranger Aeons

Dismember - Sickening Art from their debut album "Like An Everflowing Stream"
YouTube - Dismember - Sickening Art

Gotta love that Sunlight Studios guitar tone, which was a trademark of the early Swedish death metal scene.

Totally unrelated to the Swedish scene, but good things were happening in England at the time as well. Check out Bolt Thrower's song "Lest We Forget" from their fifth album "...For Victory"
YouTube - Lest We Forget
Bolt Thrower are probably the most consistent band in death metal and a perfect example of how catchy the style can be.

My newfound love of metal continues.

Let me find some examples:

Jungle Rot: This stuff is really straightforward, boneheaded death metal but they write some really catchy riffs.
YouTube - Jungle Rot - Face Down

Portal: This is a completely bonkers experimental death metal band from Australia. It sounds as if someone taught aliens how to play really fast tremolo guitar riffs, recorded it, then played those songs in reverse. Or something. I dunno, but it's really strange.
YouTube - Portal - Omnipotent Crawling Chaos

Gris: A French-Canadian band specializing in haunting, melancholic black metal.
YouTube - Gris - Il Était une Forêt...
