Is there such thing as jazz metal?


#21

she’s such an obvious Shudder to Think fangirl.

I like it, though. I can understand why it might be really, really irritating to some people, though.


#22

Their 21st century (schizoid) albums are metal A.F.

Their early albums might be labelled as proto-metal.

I mean, the riff from Larks Tongue in Aspic Pt. 1. Metal A.F.


#23

proto-metal?
no inventing genres


#24

If you’re allowed to have “post” genres, then it stands to reason that you can have “proto” genres.

But what I really mean is, they were playing metal before the term existed to describe their sound.


#25

yup this is immediately who came to my mind too


#26

my memory of ephel duath was good, but it was a long, long time ago, let’s find out if I still think that


#27

that drum n bass break is so bad


#28

yeah either this hasn’t aged well or I have?


#29

could be both i guess


#30

early Dillinger and Between the Buried and Me def had jazz elements:

but I dunno, does prog conflict with jazz? is it from the same place?


#31

If a proto-metaller widdles before there is heavy metal, does it make a sound?


#32

Far too much widdling in this thread. Save it for the widdle thwead.


#33

(I probably could have picked better examples but I’m not 15 anymore)


#34

Impressive. It takes a huge amount of practice, dedication and skill to make something quite this unlistenable.


#35

Ephel Duath, plus kayo dot + bohren & die club of gore in places


#36

Mare sorta


Cynic


#37

#38

#39
