Pat Metheny's new project: Orchestrion.

Absolutely wacko. I guess he can just fire the band now.

Daedelus is very good.

I've been listening to a lot of Doom and Stoner Metal recently...no idea why. Anyway Witchcraft is quite good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PYEMyyAd_Q&feature=related

Some doom, sludge, post-metal and stoner bands off the top of my head: Grand Magus, Agalloch, Neurosis, Pelican, Saturnus, Candlemass, Pentagram, Ahab, Rapture, Omega Massif...

Mouth of the Architect is some prime Ohio sludge.

I've been getting into Amon Amarth again, particularly with this www.youtube.com/watch

That's a good 'un, of course all of Amon Amarth's stuff is good.

Those who know me are doubtless aware of how restrained I am being at this moment.

Discounting metalcore, and for argument's sake if melodic death metal is here to mean that keyboard heavy stuff, then I spent over half an hour searching, sure that I had heard at least one American melodeath band that didn't sound like Dethklok and COB had a baby, but nope. Unrelated observation, but apparently Phil Anselmo was in everything.

I've seriously started giving Opeth a listen now. Watershed and Blackwater Park have got to be my favourite albums so far. Best track is a dead tie between Heir Apparent off Watershed and Blackwater Park off the eponymous album. Heavy, hectic stuff... and I absolutely love that neo-classical tonality they have in their later albums. If Chopin were around today, he'd be in this band.

I've started following Porcupine Tree on their new Twitter account, and apparently they're touring with Coheed and Cambria and The Dear Hunter. Yet another two prog bands I've heard loads about but haven't paid enough attention yet. Any other suggestions for you folks?

Also, Lasse Hoile, the guy who does all of Porcupine Tree's artwork, has done some fantastic videos for Opeth's Burden and Porcelain Heart as well.

@Astion & Fugu: Nice.

I checked out Volbeat's newest, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven. I love Volbeat, but was disappointed by this one. I will say that, as a band, they are extremely dedicated, which is still respectable even if they've begun their decline.

After last month's death metal binge, I'm dipping into some Iron & Wine. This stuff is so lovely and mellow, it's almost unbelieveable.

Aw, I missed the metal binge? I was gonna give you this. (technically black metal, but I think you'll dig it)

 

Also, yay Gary Moore!

Thanks, vikingman. I'll let it grow on me for a bit.

Gary Moore is a guilty pleasure of mine. He ranges from the epically cheesy to just plain epic.

I've also just been introduced to Gojira, which is amazing.

Huh, you know, I think I actually like this.

A lot.

... And I don't usually like metal.

I concur.

Unrelated: I kicked ass at the Singstar party yesterday. Unfortunately, the only song I knew was Coldplay's "Fix You", which kind of dampens my achievement.

There should be a Singstar: Death Metal. There'd only be one note and it would be HRUUAUAAAAARGH.

You forgot RAAAAAAAAAAGH and YAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.

Myrkgrav are good, think I still prefer Falkenbach for my one-man viking metal top choice.
