Heavy metal music gives lots of people a headache, but not me. I understand that it’s a little wild and crazy sometimes, but you have to listen for the beauty in it, both vocals and instruments. I prefer my metal to have some actual singing in it though and not just an entire song of yelling. Some good examples of great vocalists/screamers would be bands like Papa Roach, Killswitch Engage, Snot and the Deftones.
I see something good in just about any type of music, from Hip Hop and Blues, to Classical and even Country. I actually don’t like country all that much, but some of the female singers have beautiful voices.
Back to the point. If you are a fan of metal music, you probably remember an awesome band by the name of Nothingface. I haven’t heard anything from these guys in a long, long time, but I heard one of their songs on Last.fm this morning and decided to look them up and see what they’re up to.
It turns out they have broken up, reunited and broken up again. I believe they may have reunited again temporarily. I also found out that they have an official Nothingface website where they’ve been adding downloads to songs they’ve been working on over the past year. They actually release about four or five songs every month. Lots of them are demos, but still good.
If you like metal, go download some of those tracks right now and if you have any recommendations for me or want to list a few of your favorite metal bands, please do in the comments. I always love checking out new music.
