it's almost an unwritten law (and a Metalstormer law) that in order to be a true metalhead you have to like only old stuff from bands, and loathe their new stuff, but we know there are few bands that you maybe prefer their newer stuff. who knows, better production, more mature lyrics, more skilled musicianships, anything.

These are my bands

Exodus: I prefer their last 3 albums over their old stuff, of course their old stuff is OK, but I find the new ones more technical, with better riffs and more agressive. Sometimes touching the borders of melody.

Kreator: I'm a fan of old-school and melodic extreme, but in this case, I prefer their lastest 2 albums, I like a lot the melodic yet agressive riffs.

Behemoth: starting from the normal, almost generic black metal, these dudes later developed a brutal sound for the atmospheric black metal.

Hypocrisy: their latest album Virus is my fav of them all, it has better riffs IMO and more catching songs

so, post ! xD

Man, their older stuff is somehow good. I agree that they're new material destroys it, but Battles and Pure can't be that bad.

Nah, Daniell's just got a hard-on for hating on early black metal bands that don't have atmosphere and melody.


You're completely wrong. You came across me criticizing early Burzum and Immortal and drew false conclusions.. I love early Mayhem, Satyricon, Emperor, Darkthrone and many many more. Point is, they didn't release bad albums that became cult. The bands I mentioned actually had many good songs on their early releases. And they had SONGS as opposed to Immortal's exercises in chaos and Burzums exercises in sloppiness.

Actually, I'm with him too. But Immortal is are special for me. For example, I hate bands like Darkthrone and Mayhem, but I like Enslaved, Drudkh, WIITR, Xasthur and Burzum (I guess they're somehow atmospheric.)

He likes some of those bands but he slags a few others, but you hear him slag the "others" more than he praises the ones he likes, so I made a joke about how he gets off on hating ALL early lo-fi black metal or whatever.

Then everyone was like "Wha?"

If you want to know what I think, read MY posts, no someone else's. That's a good general rule

There are a lot of bands in that category for me:
Accept: It was good (too much fillers), It's a lot better now, better sound, more metal, better solos, better production, better songwriting, and yes, a better singer! Mark Tornillo rocks!
Amon Amarth: It was great (Once Sent...) or average (The Crusher), it's way better now (Surtur Rising, Twilight of The Thunder God), it's like AC/DC, Motorhead or Týr, every album is more or less the same, but Amon Amarth's songwriting becomes better and better.
Arkona: Slovo and Goi Rode Goi are amazing.
Carcariass: Their first two albums were just bad produced/played death metal. Does someone know them? Their latest stuff is awesome.
Death: Scream bloody what? Scream Bloody Boring! Leprosy was ok, Spiritual healing is really good and then? Pure awesomeness...
Helloween: It was good, it's way better now, more metal. Kiske's annoying voice is so overrated.
and there are many more: Emperor, Hypocrisy, Immortal, Månegarm, Primodial, Rotting Christ, Vreid, etc.

Borknagar. I feel like they have been evolving toward the Urd sound for a long time, and Winter Thrice though not quite as good is still a solid effort. Universal to me is a mess. It's got a lot going on that I think they struggled to find a place for sonically. With Urd and WT I'm like, "YES! You got it exactly right!"

Takes a while to perfect something so complex.

More recent Amorphis, too. Although I love Tales, Karelian was just boring folksy drivel and I don't know what the heck happened after Elegy?! But they have put out some solid music lately and I am happy to see a band turn it around. That doesn't happen very often!

I beg to differ and their later albums have nothing to do with death metal anymore, especially that horrendous one called The Sound Of Perserverence.

Who cares if they have anything to do with death metal, progressive metal is WAY better than death metal anyway. Also, The Sound Of Perseverance is one of the best albums ever so shut your blasphemous mouth.

Anyway, I got another band, Dir En Grey. Since Uroboros onward they've reached a new standard and have been getting better with each release. Also Bring Me the Horizon, There Is a Hell is their first album that is actually good and they've just gotten better since then. Less heavy and more pop, yes, but still better. I finally second Periphery, their first album is pretty bad, but they've been getting much better with each album. Really I think MOST bands actually get better over time, there are just three main issues. The first is that when a band releases a groundbreaking album, it's just hard to top that, so after that everything seems worse, but it's really not. Second is lineup changes happen, and it's a similar issue, where when there is one really good lineup, subsequence lineups don't semm any good. Finally, for bands that have been around for ever, singers get worse as they age. Iron Maiden and Queensryche have suffered from this. There is also the fourth non-issue, which is just old fans getting mad when a band changes style even though it's usually an improvement.

Literally no band comes to mind.

I've seen Death mentioned, but for me I enjoy every second album released of theirs (Leprosy, Human, Symbolic) more than the others.
