\m/ my girlfriend is really the metalhead, but she’s gotten me into some of the bands she likes. I’d say Cloak of Ash by Hope Drone is my favorite metal album, currently.

Does metalcore count?

Hands down my two favorite albums are
Shai Hulud - hearts once nourished with hope and compassion

And
Morning Again - as tradition dies slowly

These got me into hardcore/metalcore 20 years ago and lyrically were streets ahead of what i’d been listening to as a youngster (i was 20).

Morning Again - Stones
As you set this world on fire
You too shall surely burn
As you spark the flames of hatred
And refuse to let this world turn

Stones have been thrown
From fear of what’s unknown

You scream the cry of deviance
Not seen as a natural part of us
Love Is Never Wrong

Delight in misery. Choosing conformity
The line of least resistance
Outgrow uncertainty. Resist Stability
At least I know the real me

Whether genetic or a choice
You never asked yourself
Why you chose to love who you love
You never ask yourself

What One Becomes is incredible, I was listening to it about an hour ago myself. Wolves in the Throne Room are great too, highly recommend this album to anyone even slightly interested in some great atmospheric black metal:

I think my main loves are the doomy/post-metal/experimental side of things… Isis, Sumac, Cult of Luna, The Body, Amen Ra…

This is an amazing thread, especially because it shows me that I know nothing. I’m enjoying metal a lot when in the right mood.

Been listening to this album quite a bit recently:

Certainly am. Might I suggest Vanum’s Realm of Sacrifice, (a bit of shameless self promotion, the photos on the cover art are mine, and if you can track down the 12" it comes with a big 16 page booklet of my work)

John Stanier might be my favorite drummer. Hard to choose, but yeah.

Forgot to recommend Bosse De Nage, one of my current favorites. Also, their Instagram has quite a few posts of modular synths :+1:

Been into doom and drone metal lately! Older stuff like, Paradise Lost, Boris, Earth…

I also love Anathema, although I don’t think they’re really “metal” anymore. Beautiful music though, and I was really fortunate to catch them two years ago here doing a three-piece acoustic set.
