I recently discovered the album 'Fetch' by 'Melt banana', some japanese band. Hard to describe, kind of an experimental punk/melodic/noise/electroninc/pop thing. I have no idea what they're singing about, but it sounds pretty cool :D. (I usually don't care much for lyrics anyway, I listen more to instrumental music, house, soundtracks etc :p)

Youtube link.

Here's a wild one from a Japanese band called Boris:
Song: Boris - Pink

Most recently I listened to Einhorn's. "Voices of Light", a soundtrack written in the 1990s for "Passion of Joan of Arc" from 1928. Great choral music for a brilliant early movie.

This song is sick:
Ensiferum - Way of the Warrior

Hugo--my trouble with much recent metal is that the chord progressions are seriously hackneyed. The one you link is a case in point: excellent guitar playing, but the tune doesn't remotely compare to (say) Thunderstruck or Technical Difficulties. Those are genuinely interesting musically--as is much Van Halen. TwoCello's cover of Thunderstruck demonstrates just how interesting a tune it really is--not to mention making an utterly hilarious music video.

Anyone have the new Twin Peaks soundtracks yet? I'm trying to decide whether I can hold out until Christmas or if I should just order them now. If I understand correctly there's one album that's the in-show performances and one that's the Angelo Badalamenti/Lynch atmospheric stuff.

It's not recent, but I thought this group might appreciate "Bashing the Balrog" by Leslie Fish.

^ From Crash Bandicoot 3 - Prehistoric OST. Definitely a fitting song for the antics of PCB.

In a somewhat similar tradition, but nowhere near the same production values: Ormurin Langi. There was a metal version Třr - Ormurin Langi, but frankly I actually prefer the folk dance version because of its hypnotic quality. (I am Faroese, btw, as you can probably tell from the name of my GitHub account. Well, that or Icelandic... but I am Faroese... or Icelandic.)

Not sure how easy it is to appreciate if you don't understand the original language, but the translation at least gets the "this is metal" message across, I think.
