totaldepravity: My number one spot for metal is tied between Crimson Glory and WASP.
W.A.S.P. is pretty underrated nowadays but they've released some killer albums and apparently they're close to releasing a new one!

Sachys: Not exactly metal, but one for fans of OLD Ministry / ATR and Hardcore: HO99O9
What counts as old Ministry? When I was in high school old Ministry was techno and new Ministry was Psalm 69, but that was 20 years ago and I haven't been keeping up.

Was the same for me (most are unaware of the house music days). They were never techno though.
Post hippy days. Early 90s (so Psalm 69 etc would count) - rather than their more recent, blander outings in the last fifteen / twenty years.

In case you didnt feel like showing up

Any other Last Crack or Course of Empire fans here? They along with Warrior Soul had a (lyrically) intelligent socially aware experimental-ish metal thing going on in the 90s. Unfortunately of that group only Warrior Soul has managed to stay semi-relevant.

Last Crack had a bit of a tribal sound going on, along with their metal. I'd suggest checking out Kiss A The Cold and Precious Human Stress, both from the Burning Time album.

Course of Empire had a faux industrial metal thing going, and had two drummers playing simultaneously. I'd recommend Coming of the Century from the album of the same name, and New Maps from their Telepathic Last Words album. They did a fantastic cover of Let's Have A War by FEAR that is well worth checking out too.

Slow Roosevelt gets my last recommendation of this post. They had a sort of generic 2000s angry heavy metal sound, but a great vocalist (for that style) and some cool tunes. Boys Lie Girls Steal deserves your ears attention, as does Comfort From A Bomb, both from their Weightless album.
I got reminded of one of my favourite swedish metal bands today. This is old and the great texts of the bands songs aren't easy to get for non swedish speakers but the music's great noneteless.

Aaand I noticed Babymetal was mentioned again so I feel I have to post Blood Stain Child - Freedom that mix europop with In Flames. Great mix. :)

On the subject of europop mixed with In Flames, I feel compelled to say that Timecry from Sweden did it better. It's a shame they never took off though, and ultimately disbanded. Also Amaranthe.

Timecry sounded like a amateur death metalband throwing some keyboards for cover to me and Amaranthe is a high school cool bro band and rides on the good looks of their singer and catchy tunes.

So come better if you wanna play. :)
