I just like searing vocals, the thundering base, awesome solos, and sometimes even the quieter prog rock type songs that appear sometimes on these albums.

What should I be listening to or buying records of?
Pantera: Vulger Display of Power

Sepultura: Schizophrenia

Anthrax: Volume 8 (Hey, not their best but there's some awesomely catchy tunes in there)

Anything Coheed and Cambria. These guys are doing it right.

I really want to say Fear Factory but I feel that may be too far out of your range.


That's about all I could recommend right now. If you ever get into some newer and heavier stuff I'd love to make some recommendations.

Honestly though, I'm not too up on good eighties metal other than the old stand bys like Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera, Sepultura etc... So these ones may not wet your appetite so much.
