    I listen to a lot of pantera and I love it. Someone recommended in flames and I downloaded like ten of their songs and don't really like their style.

    what's good?

    I love tool too, never really considered them a metal band though.

    Try Opeth, first and foremost.

    I would recommend Shadows Fall, Diecast, All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, and Mastodon for the straight up metal.

    For metal that leans a little more towards the 'hardcore' side, try Poison The Well, Norma Jean and Twelve Tribes.

    Im surprised no has mentioned soilwork yet. However, if you dont really like in flames, I suggest soilworks last 2 albums, figure number 5, and stabbing the drama. Little bit more of the melodic metal, but metal non the less. And killswitch engage - any album.

    I can't agree with the above post, Soilworks last two albums were terrible. If you really want to listen to them, I'd stick to there early work. There new stuff is just too weak, wimpy and simple. Same goes for In flames, they were good on there first few albums but they sold out and dilluted there sound way too much for my liking.

    Some good melodic death albums:

    At the Gates - The Red in the Sky Is Ours
    Amorphis - The Karelian Isthmus
    Eucharist - A Velvet Creation
    Intestine baalism - Banquet in the darkness

    Hmm... yes, but he also did mot metion what kind of metal he was into. He said Pantera, so perhapse he is into mainstream metal. Not everyone likes that super technical stuff. Some people like their music to have catchy grooves and whatnot, even if they are simple. I have plenty of reasons why I think soilworks later stuff is better, but that would defeat my point that everyone has opinions, and thats exactly what he asked for. Quit being a nay saying deuche. You didnt hear me talking shit about all the bands I thought sucked, which is pretty much everything listed. Listening to music isnt about "getting someone on your team", offer suggestions, give a breif explaination, then just shut up. Or wait for someone to open a "lets talk about how the bands you like suck" thread, and I will gracefully decline to take part.

    I'm sorry, when did I ever say that the opinions in my post are facts? I didn't, and neither did I mean to imply it as such, I was merely stating my opinion in response to a post, which is surely the main point of a forum? Unless I'm missing the point? I completely understand people's differing tastes, you'd have to be an idiot to not do so, I was merely commenting, nothing more. Calling posters "metal dorks" for trying to spread awareness of what we believe to be good music makes you look like much of more of a deuche.

    Didnt you try to say that soilwork sucks now. By doing so you are trying to hinder the spread of good music. And of course you are gonna act like you are so righteous and shit. Here, I'll tell ya what. I'm gonna make a "lets talk shit about all the bands you like" thread right now for ya. Now all the elite metal dorks can have a place to reside. I know they're all looking for one.

    The fact that I happen to listen to "elitist metal" as you call it is besides the point, I was merely expressing my opinion on the fact that I don't like soilwork, I'm not gonna endorse a band that I don't like, and I'm gonna comment negatively on bands that I don't like, thats my right, same as everybody else. At least I post actual reasons most the of time for my dislike of the band in question. You need to get off that high horse ya deuche.

    To the guy that started this thread: I'm sorry man. This shouldnt have happened. In an idealistic world this would work out. But yeah, sorry.
