Got Megadeth's Endgame CD as a birthday gift...pretty good even though a bit routine stuff on it. The guitar work is stellar as is the norm with Mustaine and this time he has a great new lead to play with (Broderick).

Have also been listening to some Arsis (We are the nightmare album). Not bad at all.
Hey Abhay,

If you like Morbid Angel then you will definitely like Nile! Nile is Egyptian themed death metal. The music is brutal death metal peppered with haunting middle eastern traditional music passages played on instruments like sitar, gongs and whatever you call those middle eastern strings and percuussive instruments. The end result is a very brutal, dark and evil death metal. There's some fantastic guitarwork and amazingly complex riffs played with great technical precision and speed. There's plenty of double bass blast beat drumming and amazing death growls with some middle eastern chanting.

Give it a try, it's not like those new teenage metal bands that all sound like each other. This one's an instant classic, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

I would also recommend "Theogonia" by Rotting Christ and "Communion" by Septic Flesh!

PS: Obituary, Suffocation and Slayer have also released new albums recently!!

Why do these bands sport such names, are they trying to be iconoclastic or just cool?

Zaks,

Neither dude! Because bands screaming about violence, hatred, evil, aggression, anger, pain and death woouldn't want to sport names like "babyface" or "pussycat dolls" now would they?

These are extreme metal bands. If you check out the music, lyrics and imagery from any of the above bands, you'd realise that the names that they sport are quite apt.

I would be interested in going and I have heard PTree's music (not a lot).
Can non-students make it to Mood I?
ladak.imran - if you can help me out on this, I may join you there

Don;t know if this is old news, but Amon Amarth is playing in Palace grounds on Dec 5th supported by textures. All this is a part of the deccan rock festival.

Any news of other gigs then? The Big Four of Thrash are going to be playing in Poland this year and Megadeth will be on tour with Testament - wish that was happening here!

@abhay

Iv'e seen two of the big four ( Megadeth & Slayer) play live but having them play at the same stage would be legendary.

Guess who's playing at Rock in India this year? after hosting bands like iron Maiden, Machine Head and Megadeth, this year's headlining acts are Backstreet Boys and Richard Marx. I think the organisers have lost their minds and their heterosexuality.

What the ___ ????


I'm not a fan of Slayer but Megadeth, 80s Metallica and some Anthrax would be amazing.
Also a big fan of Kreator and Testament keeping with the 80s thrash :-)

Heard a song from Dan Swanö yesterday - pretty impressive talent I would say with him doing almost everything on that record.

Swano is a genius. I really like Edge of Sanity's Crimson. His other projects are Pan-thy-monium and Moontower. I'm yet to listen to Moontower.

If you like Dan swano you may also like Devin Townsend and Pelican.

Wow! An exclusive 'Rock' thread! Sweet!

Guys, listen to these following tracks:

Soothsayer (Must listen)
Nottingham Lace
Too Many Humans
Final Wars
We Are One (feat. Serj Tankian from System Of A Down)
King James
Jordan
Padmasana
Whitewash

These tracks are all by this guy called Buckethead. He's a new find for me and I'm floored! A must listen for all guitar and rock lovers! This guy's leads and solos can put Steve Vai/Malmsteen/Satriani to shame!

I have heard a few snippets of Buckethead but I think I have long gone past the stage where "shred guitar" fascinates me..of course he has talent and skill but it gets a little tedious (talking abt guys like Malmsteen, Vai, Romeo, Petrucci etc)

Sellouts as usual - perhaps the jokers should change the name to "Pop in India" - headlined by various joker acts.
