and both Nights Like These and Emmure do chugga chugga chug but they do it of the highest order
Today Is The Day - 'Kiss The Pig'
Taint - 'The Ruin of Nova Roma'
Voivod - 'Killing Technology'
Yakuza - 'Samsara'
Tool - 'Aenima' is always a good one to come back to too.
I've only heard Transmutations, it's very good.
I find it a little more immediate and streamlined than Transmutations, plus I find the production on it a bit more to my liking.
are better than any of those bands
I just laughed myself to death. I am now dead.
I only listen to Isis so I can practise endless wanky guitar soloing over their pointless meandering ambient soundscapes.
Just kidding, I like them really. Even though everything I said in the above post is true.
I do think they show an enormous amount of restraint and "economy" in their music which i find quite admirable in the genre, and when it finally drops sounds laaavely
On another note...Dillinger Escape Plan?
Am I alone in never really considering them to be a metal band?
Even if their album had its sketchy moments, songs like As The Storms Unfolds are absolutely murderous.
First band that came to mind, absolutely incredible album.
(now known by the crap name of Jex Thoth)
You may like the singing, you may not. The music is grand though. Feat. Wooden Wand and Hush Arbors guy.
If you like that (or like it minus the singing) try Witchcraft or Witch.
