LOL while I liste to heavy metal, hard rock, screamo, etc I appreciate rap, unlike other who are like me (maybe about 99% of metalheads ) I used to listen to rap, hip-hop, but then I took an arrow in the knee (I had to )
im obsessed with this one atm
As of late I've been listening a lot to Across the Sun. I rarely like American bands...but these guys have quite the sound. Only one guitarist, and he's heavily inspired by European metal from the 80's. And then their vocalist...he has 3 different harsh vocal inflections and his clean vocals are pretty good too. Reminds me of Kiuas...if Kiuas weren't Finnish and weren't crazy by flip-flopping subgenres on a song by song basis. Of course, Across the Sun seems to do that in a few of their songs themselves. "Descent and Discovery" goes from being a melodic death metal song to suddenly having a 30 second outro with piano and stringed instruments.
Of course you might not want to listen to it if you don't care for harsh vocals.
One of my favorites. Showcases a lot of their talent.
And the first song I ever heard from them. The chorus, and the transition into the second verse as well, just hooked me into this band.

I searched and found the old closed threads and this was the most recent "What are you listening to right now" thread I could find. But yes, I feel like I am necro-ing and maybe missed a thread somewhere.
My goal is to introduce a new band, and I know that over the years I have seen a lot of interest in death metal here so give a listen for those that like this genre:
They are French, but "sing" in English (I suspect... its not like you can understand anything they say anyway).
