    Pipe smoking Metalheads, what have you guys been listening to lately and what have you been smoking while jamming?

    Whenever concerts are coming up I listen to the acts I'm heading out to see. So a lot of Krisiun, some Origin. Also a bunch of Ghost, King Diamond and Exodus. I have a heavy diet of black metal also. Mgla's new album "Exercises in Futility" is probably their best album at this point.

    As for what's been going in my pipe, Orlik DSK is fantastic. Probably my favorite new/returning blend. Can't say enough about it, smooth, great tin note, doesn't sour and really the taste profile flows freely during the smokes I've had in my cobs and a few briars I smoke VAs in. I have to say that I do love Kentucky VAs.

    Let's hear what you've been jamming and smoking.

    I have a hard time smoking while jamming out as it influences my cadence.

    The other day, I had on some Rage Against the Machine and found myself puffing like a madman!

    Therefore, I choose more relaxing music for smoking and Metal for working in the yard / shop / truck.

    Metallica, Tool, Pantera and others do get ample speaker-time though!

    My two favs are AC/DC and Metallica. Just saw AC/DC on this past Tues. at Ford Field here in Detroit and the lads still got it! Angus is still a force of nature and even with camera close ups on his guitar, his fingering is still hard to follow. A true rock god and smiled all day Wed with a little ringing still in my ears.

    CM, while in rehab I saw GWAR at First Ave, a legendary club in Minneapolis. It was the most fun I've had in a show audience. Great stuff!!! Also saw KMFDM there, another awesome concert!

    @deathmetal, how are you liking Repentless? I haven't heard anything other than the title track.

    With the caveat that bands in their third decade can hardly be expected to produce what they did in their third year, I have to say I like it. There are weak spots: vocals are somewhat somnolent, guitars sometimes try too hard to be random, and riffs show a clear pondering of why other bands made it big while Slayer remained the go-to for being outside of socially acceptable... but: I think it's their best effort in years. Keeps the energy high and the aggression honest.

    @oldreddog That checks off most of my boxes for what's good in new music this year. The latest Metz album is great, and I'm expecting Fuzz II to top my year-end list. Haven't had much time to absorb the new Uncle Acid. At first I was slightly disappointed--it seems more like a side step than a real move forward, and has a bit of filler--but it's growing on me.

    Boom. No f'ing with that brutal-on-both-counts combo. I have to say that I am more likely to give repeated spins to Matthew Bower & co. when there are drums involved. Can anyone recommend any albums besides "IIIrd Gatekeeper" and "Exquisite Fucking Boredom"? I can go in for some Hototogisu/Vibracathedral Orchestra and the like on occasion.

    If you like a bit of atmospheric tech death then check out the latest Fallujah album.

    The new Amorphis album is pretty cool as well, best stuff I've heard from them in a while.

    I LOVE Candlemass! Even went to Stockholm a couple of years ago to see them perform there with their original singer from Epicus Doomicus Metallicus: Johan Längquist. The gig was so intense, hot and loud that my girlfriend (it was her first metal-concert) nearly fainted during Sorcerer's Pledge and I had to carry her out..

    I dig various flavors of metal. I like the really complex, sophisticated kind of stuff, usually with deep lyrics sung somewhat cleanly.

    Wintersun is really excellent. I'm also a fan of Agalloch, Mastodon, Nightwish...

    Is that the Oz album where they supposedly remove everything but Randy and Ozzy and replaced the drums and bass with session musicians? Sharon got tired of paying the original guys. Ozziy is whipped.

    On of the greatest concept albums so far in the 21st century has to be written by young metal band called Protest The Hero, and the album was called Kezia.

    These kids wrote this album when they were 18 - 19 years old, which is impressive beyond belief considering the musicianship lurking beneath the distortion and double kick.

    The concept behind the albums is from 3 perspective's; the priest (songs 1 thru 3), the prison guard (songs 4 thru 6) and Kezia herself (songs 7 thru 9).

    The actual concept behind the album is up for debate, but my interpretation is the story is about a girl, Kezia, who has been sentenced to death after killing her abusive father.

    First time I realized the concept behind the album, I was nearly in tears through the emotions this album triggered.

    Similar to that one? Seems almost like it has its roots in folk, the concept and everything.

    Today, for me it's:

    Not listened to Bolt Thrower in ages, that was a blast from the past.

    northernneil, I enjoyed that Protest the Hero album, cheers for the heads-up. The singer did remind me of the guy from Panic at the Disco though!

    I dug out Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche the other day and remembered just what an awesome album it is. They never really came close to it again imo.
