    I can understand that they call it Viking Metal because of the lyrical content, but it's a false genre. A sense of unification through lyrics does not form a genre. Of course these are all my opinions.

    iron maiden
    metallica
    nightwish
    within temptation (very, very soft, don't know if they're actually metal, but they started as a gothic metal band)
    death (if I could only find one of their cd's...)
    morbid angel
    carcass (lyrics are sick, but their music is great)
    in flames
    slayer
    tristania
    cradle of filth (their old stuff)
    ...

    Can anyone recommend me some good grindcore/black/death bands? I'm into the harder stuff lately.

    well, if you're looking for some death metal, try go for behemoth, Nile, Arch Enemy(this band has a female vocalist but don't let that throw you off, they're one of my favourites in the genre), At the Gates, Cryptopsy, Decapitated and Kataklysm just to name a few.

    for black metal try out some Emperor, Mayhem, Gorgoroth, Dimmu Borgir, and depending on how early you want to go with the genre, but Venom is pretty good, Bathory, Bal-Sagoth, Covenant, Dark Funeral, and Carpathian Forest.

    That should get you started with death and black metal. oh, and for cd's from the band Death, you gotta get your hands on them somehow. they're a great band, chuck is one of my favourite guitarists in metal. what have you heard from them so far?

    I have to get a Death album as well. I still have yet to listen to them. I'm looking into 'Sound of Perseverance'.

    Oh yeah, and why start with new Arch Enemy, when you can listen to Stigmata? :P

    Not listened to Death?! Sound of Perseverance is very good, prog-like with high vocals. Their cover of Painkiller is A++. I have Human, Scream Bloody Gore and Soud of Perseverance (and smatterings of other album songs on my PC). Their early stuff was much harsher and the lyrics were harsher in nature too, and as you go up in their discography, the lyrics become less harsh, the guitars become more complex, and Chuck's voice gets higher and higher. I'd start with the album Human, and depending on if you like harsh or not, go up in their discography or go down. Better yet get everything.

    I don't know why you consider Venom black metal. They conned the term to be sure, and without them Black metal probably wouldn't be what it is today, but I wouldn't call them black metal. They're a thrash metal band.

    Behemeth also plays black metal, depending on the album, so definately check them out. They're a great band.

    I'd check out CoF's Dusk and Her Embrace and earlier if you like symphonic black metal. There are a few songs in other albums worth listening to, but they're hard to find. I'd say get Dimmu's Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, another good symphonic black metal album. Get all Emperor albums, all top notch.

    Immortal and Darkthrone are also very very famous in the black metal scene. I recommend both bands.

    Get Amon Amarth for melo-death.

    sound of perseverence is a great album and i agree with you, painkiller cover was just phenomenal. i personally like their earlier stuff because it was quicker and as you said, more harsher. i have their entire discography and i listen to atleast 1 album per week. death is in my top 3 for sure when it comes to all time favourite bands.

    oh, and to me venom is black metal for the exact same reason that you mentioned above, because they basically started it off. and during that time, their lyrical content and music made them a black metal band. for example, during sabbath's time, they were heavy metal. today, i hear alternative bands that are heavier than sabbath were during their time. then again, i think it's also personal preference, you see venom as thrash metal and i see them as black metal.

    Well difference of perspective is something that I can't argue with, though I'd actually argue that Bathory actually started black metal off.

    Here's a different question for you all: How many of you have seen bands perform live? Either on video or at an actuall concert. I find that metal bands actually sound like their CD's, unlike alot of the more popular bands, whose singers suck live.
