05:24 - deadone That's historical revisionism. Bare in mind most NWOBHM metal bands didn't do " dark, heavy." Most speed/thrash wasn't that heavy either. Indeed Sabbathian heaviness was kept alive by doom metal.
05:16 - Apothecary Also, I wouldn't call Zeppelin JUST hard rock/proto metal either, they were also quite bluesy and very folk-influenced, so there's also that to consider as well
05:13 - Apothecary I would consider Deep Purple and Zeppelin as PROTO metal at most. It was really Sabbath that developed the dark, heavy, riff-driven style that is now essentially the core staple of the entire genre
05:05 - deadone In other news, nothing gets one out of the sadness from attending a funeral like thrash fucking metal. It's that ugly kick in the face that one needs to get out feeling sadness.
05:03 - deadone Even Sabbath didn't play "pure heavy metal" - lots of heavy blues and rock n roll here even on early stuff. In any case Zeppelin are far more metal than half the shit that gets labelled metal these days.
05:00 - deadone Led Zeppelin have always been regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands - indeed the Holy Trinity is Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. What they played did differ from modern metal.
04:34 - Apothecary I saw Led Zeppelin labeled as metal and that was my queue to stop taking whoever wrote that article seriously
US metalcore/alternative thrash metal outfit Shadows Fall have revealed the cover art for their upcoming new album, Fire From The Sky, which will be released via Razor & Tie on May 15th. The album artwork, created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers, can be seen below. More album details were previously reported here.
I'm not one to judge a book by its cover, but I have a feeling this might turn out to be a lot less metalcore/thrash and a lot more deathcore.
I seriously doubt that. To be honest I've never seen any notable metalcore elements in this band aside from the vaguely core-ish vocals and I just don't think it's in their character to go all deathcore on us. Their sound is too heavily steeped in thrash, would just be too much of a change in direction.
ugh..You need to look more closer to that I suppose. Dude standing out there watching LAVA and thinking about the horrendous destruction and that's clear cut.
Oh, don't be so cynical
From the vid JOOE posted, (well, that specifically) sounds like Death Angel's more (most?) boring stuff. Million miles away from deathcore? Hell yes. But, thrash that's far and away from metalcore - not really. To my ears, anyway. And did I just hear the singer introduce it as a "nice, slow DEATH METAL tune for you all"?
