04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
Nice and varied list, a lot of good not metal albums here but I think ( or Last.fm doess) "Atrium Carceri - Kapnobatai" was released in 2005. I do not want to be picky since I got familiar with that band after reading you suggested it somewhere in forums but its inclusion on this list might be misleading
Some cool stuff on there but I now udnerstand why our discussion never went anywhere - our music tastes are so different amigo!!
Well this list is extremely out of date now (not that I don't like anything from it, but I'd probably restrict it to one band per entry) and would now contain a reasonable amount of classic metal as it was after I made this list I made some effort to look into it
