    i have been longing for a new album on the level of classics such as Slipknot's first, Deftones - Around the FuR, KoRn - Follow The Leader, Ill Nino's first etc...but all i seem to be hearing is that damn emo stuff!!! Anyone know of any new METAL bands out there?

    c'mon! there's tons of new music out there for EVERY genre imaginable.

    the human abstract, scars of tomorrow, heaven shall burn, unearth and twelve tribes released new cds not too long ago, emmure, the burning season, and more.

    if you're into that nu-metal type stuff (korn, deftones) chevelle and linkin park just released new cds.

    The nu metal fad died out a while ago and in my mind was worse than the current 'emo' one. Real metal was and is still very much alive, look to Scandinavia, Germany and Italy for some good bands - it'll be a bit of an eye opener for you. is a list of a fair few quality metal bands although since its a countrywide ranking you still get some popular yet crap music coming through.
    finnish metal rocks :>. Sonata Arctica, Ensiferum, Wintersun, Children of Bodom, Apocalyptica...
    Thank you for Stam1na, Waltari, Finntroll, Kotiteolisuus, Korpiklaani, Turisas, Ensiferum, Sonata Arctica, and so much more wonderful music!
    Those quotes contain some of the best metal around and this is just from finland.

    To get a better understanding of what your trying to say, I went to wikipedia
    Emo (an abbreviation of "emotionally-driven Hardcore punk") is a term now broadly used to describe almost any form of guitar-driven alternative rock that expresses emotions beyond traditional punk's limited emotional palette of alienation and rage.
    Well we aren't talking about punk so I imagine your talking about the sceamo subgenre that came from emo, right? Screamo is usually associated with Metal and metalcore. Again, from wikipedia
    Characteristic of the genre are screaming vocals, harmonized guitars, and fast-paced riffs. Breakdowns in screamo songs are often faster and more heavy than in other genres, less of a "beatdown" and more of an opportunity for introspection (and rest for the musicians). Other than that, it is fairly hard to classify (particularly since the rule about screaming vocals is bent fairly often). In addition to that, screamo has significant overlap with other genres like grindcore and even post rock.
    A good screamo/metalcore band is Avenged Sevenfold. And if you have this image in your mind that all emo/screamo bands are pussies... well let's just say you haven't seen a7x in concert.
