Joachim discovers "classic" and "important" hardrock and metal albums

#1

Post by joachimt »

I decided to create a topic for this and post about what I listen to.

Reposting some stuff from the Music Lounge:
joachimt wrote: April 5th, 2021, 7:31 pm I'm trying to fill some gaps in my knowledge of essential early hardrock and metal albums. I started listening to hardrock and metal in the mid 90's and hardly ever dug into the earlier years. I know and own some usual suspects like all the albums by Metallica, Reign in Blood, Holy Diver, Number of the Beast, Abigail, Operation: Mindcrime and some from the early 90's, but my knowledge of 80's metal and 70's hardrock is pretty limited.

If you would recommend me the essentials, which would you choose?
Pretentious Hipster wrote: April 5th, 2021, 8:04 pm Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Bathory, Napalm Death, Godflesh, Bolt Thrower, Pestilence, Grotesque, Winter, Primus, Blasphemy, Morbid Saint, Atheist, Death, Melvins, Burzum, Incantation, Darkthrone, Eyehategod, and Demilich.
joachimt wrote: April 6th, 2021, 4:43 am Got these already:
Black Sabbath
Pestilence
Primus
Death

Know the name but hardly listened to it:
Celtic Frost
Bathory
Napalm Death
Godflesh
Bolt Thrower
Atheist
Burzum
Incantation
Darkthrone

Never heard of (I think...):
Grotesque
Winter
Blasphemy
Morbid Saint
Melvins
Eyehategod
Demilich

I'll put the second and third on my list. Thanks.

Napalm Death

Darkthrone
Of this list, which are their essential albums? Mostly looking for "instant classic", "genre-defining", etc...
Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion
Bathory - Blood Fire Death
Napalm Death - Scum
Godflesh - Streetcleaner
Bolt Thrower - Realm of Chaos
Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
Burzum - Filosofem
Incantation - Onward to Golgotha
Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky

Most of these have at least 5000 ratings on RYM, which is HUGE for older metal albums
joachimt wrote: April 6th, 2021, 7:30 pm Also just went through this page (EDIT: this should have been a link, but forgot to add it) and put some more in my list like Mercyful Fate, Entombed, Cannibal Corpse, Mayhem, Accept and some more by Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath.
sebby wrote: April 18th, 2021, 9:15 am Maybe these are too obvious even for "instant classics" but I would also rec the first two Motley Crue albums, Thin Lizzy, Stooges and Rainbow for Hard Rock essentials.
Lammetje wrote: April 20th, 2021, 4:40 pm As for hard rock I'd recommend Led Zep, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Blue Öyster Cult, Bad Company and Montrose.
joachimt wrote: April 20th, 2021, 7:39 pm Thanks. Of course I already have lots of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Also have some Thin Lizzy. Whitesnake is a big gap indeed, surely need to listen to that. I'll put the others on my list as well.

Started with Black Sabbath the past week. I already had Paranoid on vinyl and a best of on cd, so I new the most famous songs, but I listened to "Black Sabbath", "Heaven and Hell", "Master of Reality", "Sabotage" and "Vol. 4". Pretty cool stuff, especially the slower songs.
I also went through lots of "essential metal" or "best metal" lists and made a lot of notes on albums I should be listening to. Got a list of roughly 150 titles so ar.

Accept - Balls to the Wall

I can't say I'm enjoying this one. It's all so simplistic. The opening song, titletrack, immediately sets the bar with a very simplistic chorus, which is written with the only purpose to get crowd participation. But I guess I can say this about most of the songs. Most songs sound like they are popsongs but with a rough edge and a bit faster. Listen to Head Over Heels for example. With a slightly different production and better arrangement, this could have been a Bon Jovi song.

I made it halfway. Five tracks was enough of this.

metal is such a varied area that I am sure you won't like anything that is influential or classic:
in pre- and early metal there is the juggernaut of Black Sabbath, also check Motorhead, MC5, Discharge
After that I think Iron Maiden is pretty much unavoidable
But also look into Venom, Judas Priest, Celtic Frost
With that you have all the progressive and punk elements to start a "journey" that will get you eventually towards death, doom and black metal

I started my metal journey with Iron Maiden, Manowar and Slayer
Then Bathory became a huge favorite (when they were creating Viking metal, although I then got into earlier stuff too, legendary band!)
At these early 90's the british grindcore and floridian death metal were pretty huge
from this period Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Morbid Angel, Entombed and Autopsy might be my biggest favorites
although Death seems unavoidable, and there are many more names
in the Netherlands we had Gorefest as a standout for me
Napalm Death is legendary, but I can understand why you don't like much of their work. Check out "mass appeal madness" though or "suffer the children", just to be sure you have heard everything they can do. And Carcass is above any category (but don't start with the earliest records ;))
This classic style of death metal has made a huge comeback in recent years btw (check out the 20 buck spin label for some great new bands)
I never much got into black metal at the time, but I have come to like that style too
in stead I went deeper into doom metal
Winter is indeed a classic early extreme doom discovery for me... but it is not something I regularly listen to still... I moved more towards sludge and funeral doom (biggest names Eyehategod and Evoken). There is also black metal with doom atmosphere like Drudkh that I really like. And in here somewhere I might as well drop the viking metal of Tyrfing

loads and loads to namedrop or talk about, but this should be a nice general start and a peek into where I come from when talking metal
specifically about the 80's: Manowar and Venom are the bands that hadn't been mentioned before.
Carcass - Symphonies of Sickness should be given a chance
but other than that I can't think of what would qualify from the top of my head... there is loads of good stuff of course, also some obscure gems, but not much I regularly have listened to my entire life like the bands I did mention...

EDIT:
I'm also thinking back to watching MTV's Headbangers Ball religiously back in the day, and what video's have made a lasting impression on me
you already mentioned Queensryche. There is also Annihilator with Alison Hell... not a band I checked out at the time, but that song/video is burned into memory
Dogs D'amour - how come it never rains is another one like that (more Blues rock than metal, but still a great look and sound)
on the cheesy side (and good metal always comes with a bit of cheese) there was Zodiac Mindwarp!!
Doro with All we Are

... just things popping into my metal brain from the 80's/very early 90's :) good times!!

Thanks for the write-up, beavis. Most of those bands were already in my list to listen to or already in my collection (like Carcass, Morbid Angel, Death). I'll certainly check them out.

Thanks for the list, Lauren. Doesn't happen often that someone recommends Ayreon and Devin Townsend (Ocean Machine) to me instead of the other way around. :lol:
Interesting to see you often prefer live albums.

Well, I knew you liked Ayreon already but figured I'd just post the whole list to get an overall sense of the things I like :P And yea I've listened to a few of the live albums recently and was surprised by how much I liked them. Idk if it's just me getting used to metal or if there's something more special about the live versions.

I'm not a fan of metal, but I do like hard rock and the relatively short-lived predecessor to heavy metal - Heavy Pysch.

A few recommendations (1 per band):

Flower Travellin' Band - Satori (1971)



+ Made in Japan + Make Up

Mountain - Nantucket Sleighride (1971)



+ Climbing


Pink Fairies - Never Never Land (1971)




Groundhogs - Split (1971)


+ Thank Christ for the Bomb

Speed Glue & Shinki - Self-Titles (1972) (Playlist)



+ Eve

Hi there, fellow (extreme) metalhead :party:

Thanks to the internet, I started with bands like Cannibal Corpse, Brutal Truth, Marduk and even right down the realms of Khanate and Sunn O))). Metal usually never was interesting for me "below" that degree, if you understand.
(Though I could start to enjoy some djent and proggy stuff during the last 5 years and Joachim and me are now sharing a favorite, which is Leprous :sweat: )

I don't plan on using the ICM Boards for the purpose of music discussion, but maybe I will take a look at this thread again if the OP decides to stick to black metal. :D My whole adult life was shaped by digging up intense music, not films, in fact. That's why I don't know jack about films. Maybe my research in doom metal WILL pay off one day!

I won't stick to one subgenre. I'll go back and forth to different things. We'll see.

Just started listening to Never, Neverland by Annihilator. First two tracks are nice. I always enjoy fast riffs. Is Alice in Hell mandatory as well?
I used to have a copy of Set The World On Fire many years ago, but I sold it. Didn't really like that album back then.

I don't know, I just really liked the video of Alison Hell :)
probably not essential actually... otherwise I had sought it out more myself, but it might be more to your taste than mine with regards to the guitar work...?

I feel like I am missing something with a title that mentions "influential hard rock and metal" and skips over e.g Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax.

I didn't mention Megadeth and Anthrax, but indeed I already know those as well. Never really got into Megadeth, but I like and got Rust In Peace. I like Anthrax better. I've got Among the Living, Persistence of Time and also the later album We've Come For You All.

Got several other Slayer albums as well, btw, up to Repentless.

Finished Never, Neverland and also listened to Alice in Hell by Annihilator. Funny how well I already knew the song Alison Hell. I think I had it on a compilation album years ago. It's the song that stands out the most. It's the least straightforward thrashmetal song, almost proggy, as if Genesis tried to imitate Slayer. The rest is mostly strong riffs and fast solo's. Loving it. Doesn't sound like 30 years old at all.

Well, Back and Black and Highway to Hell are arguably their most popular and influential, but I think Powerage gets the nod as the "best".

Listening to some AC/DC right now. Not finished yet. So far I've listened to Powerage and the first half of Highway to Hell, but dropping some notes. I think my lack of attention for AC/DC comes from the fact that the well known songs are actually less interesting, at least to me. So far the song Highway to Hell is one of the weaker songs. Songs like Kicked In The Teeth and Beating Around The Bush are much more fun and feature better riffs. Pretty naïve from me to put AC/DC aside for all these years based on songs like Highway to Hell, because of course I know it's often the easier songs with a simple chorus that work well for bigger audiences. So in my head AC/DC was always just some simple rock 'n' roll band with nothing interesting to bring for me. Which is weird, because I actually listened to quite a few 70's-retro rockbands from the past 15 years and several of those are clearly influenced by AC/DC.

I find one of the best AC/DC songs ever made to be Nervous Shakedown off the much maligned "Flick of the Switch" album. I love how they kept the song slow and just let the groove do its thing instead of speeding it up.

Speaking of hard rock, do you know Monster Magnet? Druggy hard rock that's reminiscent of early Black Sabbath. "Dopes to Infinity" and "Powertrip" are the best intro to the band.

Two amazing albums!! I was surprised nobody mentioned them yet.
Monster Magnet was one of the first bands I discovered outside of the hardrock/metal you heard on mainstream radio in the 90's. I already had Dopes to Infinity on CD when I only owned 20-30 albums. So me and my brother listened to that one very often. I also bought Powertrip when it came out and two years later God Says No (I love the cover of that album). Didn't really follow them after that one. I think I listened to Last Patrol once but wasn't impressed. Oh, just remembered I had Superjudge on a copied tape back then, but I threw it away when tapes completely died back then.

Any recs from you besides Dopes and Powertrip?

Since we're talking about "surprised nobody mentioned this", I'm surprised nobody mentioned Type O Negative. Maybe not "classic", because they started in the 90's, but I thought they should be on a list of influential bands as well. No need to recommend it though. Got six of their albums, every regular album except for World Coming Down.

My intro to Monster Magnet was the song Negasonic Teenage War Head back in... '95? When "Powertrip" came out I instantly bought it and picked up "Dopes to Infinity" a little while later. Saw them live in '99 and bought the T-shirt. :D

Erhm, let's see. I thought "God Says No" was a little lacking, too many quiet songs not enough hard rock (too much synthesizer). Great cover, though. The next one, "Monolithic Baby," isn't bad, but it's still not as good the Powertrip or Dopes (although one might argue that nothing is). After that I lost track of them and only recently got hold of some of their later work (Mastermind, Last Patrol, Mindfucker), but I haven't really had a chance to dive into them yet. I know they have an album in the works to be released this year, but that's all i have.

That is a good song, thanks for posting. I never listened to that album, probably because of its low-ish rating on RYM.

If I had to recommend a lesser-known AC/DC song, I'd go with "Let Me Put My Love Into You". Or "Live Wire". Or "Overdose". Yeah, they're pretty great.

Nobody ever listens to it because it's so universally derided, but it's not that bad an album - and Nervous Shakedown is great.

Ah, Overdose. I've always loved that one "plunk" of the bass in the beginning that's just completely out of place. And the lyrics are funny when you know about Bon Scott and his hard partying ("I never smoked no cigarettes, I never drank much booze, but I'm only a man, don't you understand, and a man can sometimes lose")

Next one:

Angel Witch - Angel Witch (1980)

I listened to the first five songs. If an album hasn't grabbed me halfway, it's gone for me. I found the songs to be rather dull and the lead singer kinda annoying. The guitarwork was nice here and there, but the choruses were simply terrible. Not going to listen to this again.

Angra - Angels Cry
Angra - Holy Land


Maybe not "classics" or "essentials", but I put these on the list, because they popped up on some best of list and I like Angra a bit but never listened to these two. I own Temple of Shadows and Aurora Consurgens (in my memory these are rather recent albums, but they are already 17 and 15 years old, damn I'm getting old). Anyway, you need to enjoy bombastic metal and high male voices, so this is probably not suitable for most of you.

What strikes me most with these two is how much slower the average speed is compared to the two albums I already knew. Surely there are some uptempo songs with fast guitar solo's and high, higher, highest lyrics, but there's a lot more variation going on. In my mind Angra was always something I put alongside Rhapsody and the likes, but it seems there's more to them.

For movies it works like that for me as well, but it has never been like that for me. That's probably because I've always been into albums as a whole and not really into individual songs. I haven't got individual songs at all in my digital collection. 99.5% of my digital collection consists of rips of the albums (cd and vinyl) I physically own.
If there are only two interesting songs on an album, I simply toss it aside. That's why I don't listen to the rest if an album hasn't interested me halfway.

Beavis mentioned Autopsy and this album came from a list of essentials. I must say I have mixed feelings about it. The bass sound is pretty awful. But hey, it's the 80's so I shouldn't complain about low production quality. The songs in the beginning of the album are a bit dull, up to Gasping for Air, which has a song structure like a children's song.



So I was about to turn it off, but continued anyway. Luckily, after that there are some more interesting songs like Pagan Saviour and Critical Madness and I find myself being less annoyed by the bass sound.





Still, old school death metal is not really my cup of tea. It's fun for a few minutes, but I get tired of if after a couple of songs. So maybe I should just keep this one. If one of the songs pops up on shuffle I can enjoy three minutes of it and be done with it.

Atheist - Unquestionable Presence

Now that's more like it!! You all know I love progmetal, so you know I prefer songs were lots of different things happen. I certainly enjoy some technical death metal like this. Still sounds very fresh, not like it's 30 years old.

I can't pick individual songs yet, it was too overwhelming for that after one listen.



They didn't make a lot of albums, btw. I think I'll listen to the rest later as well.

Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil

Again, not "classic" or "essential", but something that was mentioned in a best of list. This is one of those bands that I never listened to because reading about them made me think I wouldn't like this anyway. Well, I was right. It's popmetal. There are some nice ideas here and there, but most of it is very predictable and the choruses are childish. I got bored after a few songs and again five songs was enough for me to turn it off.
