Morning all...figured I'd start this thread to wake y'all up with a good dose of metal. I'll post a link once a day to introduce you to some bands that when out at work, have made my day suck less. This will cover all the genres. Heavy, death, melodic death, metalcore, etc. Discretion is advised as some of the lyrics may contain strong language...you have been warned [;)]

To start this thread off right, I give you Germanys metalcore band Heaven Shall Burn and thier song off of the album Invictus (Iconoclast III)...Combat


WAKE UP!!! [headbang]

Lyrics for those wondering:

Welcome to a world of pain,
This is the day of your conversion mortification
Dragged away from home on blood red nights
Slave to a brutal system, forevermore

You are an orphan now,
Adopted by the beast of war
The end of all your childhood dreams has come

No more will you meet a smilling face
Now peace has left your sleep forever
There are no arms to hold you,
Yet there are no hands to wipe your tears

Constrained and forced to kill
These cruelties will haunt you
A life in combat,
Your fear will make you bleed
Your inner combat
A life without a future, you will forget your wishes
And nothing to embrace, but the rifle in your hands

You are an orphan now,
Adopted by the beast of war
The end of all your childhood dreams has come
A life of combat, forevermore

No more will you meet a smilling face
Now peace has left your sleep forever
There are no arms to hold you,
Yet there are no hands to wipe your tears away
There are no arms to hold you
Peace has left over your sleep

You should post them on some other site :)
Sorry bro, I don't upload them to YT...I just pull the songs from there. If you have a smart phone, try using that.

Heaven Shall Burn is amazing. :D

For todays morning metal, we are going a little old school. I'm reaching back to 2004 to pull out this metalcore gem by All That Remains (back when they were awesome [;)] ) and their song off of This Darkened Heart album...The Deepest Gray:

Going a little deeper, to 2002, I'm pulling out an absolute classic. This is back before Howard Jones took over for Jesse Leach and created what is now Killswitch Engage. This was another time that a band was awesome. Now that Jesse is back and they are making a new album with him in it, I'm hoping for the best! Here is My Last Serenade off the album Alive or Just Breathing:


WAKE UP!!! [headbang]

Nope...he auditioned, but Howard got it cause Phil had 2 bands at the time. Jesse left cause he got all depressed about being away from his new family, took a sabbatical, front manned for time of grace and now is back with Killswitch...drama drama drama...lol

Good morning! Sorry I didn't post any metal yesterday...Internets was being fails!

To make up for it, I'm posting a double shot of some Scar Symmetry. This is just to show the different direction the band went after Christian Alvestam left. They had to replace him with 2 vocalists to get his talents [rofl].

Here is The Anomaly off of their 2011 album The Unseen Empire, featuring the 2 vocalists:


It's not a bad song. One of my favorites really, but it just really doesn't compare to old SS. This is The Kaleidoscope God off of their 2006 album Pitch Black Progress, featuring Christan:


You be the judge on this while you...

WAKE UP!!! [headbang]

Aside from these guys and Amon Amarth I really can't stand new metal. Growing up with guys like Dickinson, Dio and Halford it's hard to adjust to vocalists that all share the same style and little vocal talent. It's a shame too because the rythm sections and guitar are doing amazing things these days.
