No it's not just rock. Led Zepplin is a metal band and you are damned wrong if you think otherwise.

That song isn't metal, even if some other Led Zeppelin songs might be. It is, however, technically hard rock, and as such I'm just going to assume that Cudd isn't trolling. And even if he is, we can just post metal and have fun and the trolls will leave eventually.

Anyway, I think a couple of people here might be interested in Angel Vivaldi. They do 100% instrumental metal, kinda' in the speed vein. Here's the first track of theirs that I heard, off of their EP Universal Language.
Angel Vivaldi - A Mercurian Summer


And I don't think this thread has enough dirty vocals yet, either, so here's some more. This is one of the few metal songs whose lyrics are, I think, seriously powerful. The long off-beat sections are also really nice for creating tension in the music.
Droid - Fueled by Hate

@cuddowls

Cause lifebaka is right and hard rock also belongs here. Just don't use the word metal for a hard rock song. ;]

@Baka that first song sounds amazing. I really love instrumental stuff. Second song was a bit off my usual taste but still good.


How about this guys, metal done almost entirely by vocals?


It's a bit silly to hear a bunch of people imitate guitar riffs, but it's still pretty damn impressive when Van Canto recreates entire songs like this.

Here's a video of them live along with Gravedigger and Hansi Kursch of Blind Guardian. Probably mone of the best live performances I've ever seen.

I'm glad you like Angel Vivaldi. I think they could use more exposure.

I'm not that big a fan of Von Canto, unfortunately. I feel like, after the novelty of them doing a cappella wears off, they just don't have enough complexity in their main melodic lines. Plus I tend to prefer my metal with dirty vocals.

Anyway, this is the first song that really got me into metal. Before I heard this, I was listening to a bit of hard rock and nu-metal(-ish), but this was what really drew me into the harder subgenres.
Opeth - The Grand Conjuration

That kinda' reminds me of Dark Tranquility. Inasmuch as they're both kinda' electronic fusion metal.
Dark Tranquility - The Endless Feed

You know what's fun? Metal covers of non-metal songs. Let's have some covers.

Here's a cover of R.E.M.'s Losing My Religion, done by Graveworm. It sounds very different when it's done in black metal style.

I love their cover of "I need a hero" XD

here's a good one; a cover of a death metal song by a power metal band

Sabaton+Aman Amarth ftw.


@Mastrer do you somehow stalk my playlist when I stream for this music?
