You can also give Magma a listen. It's their most accessible album (although not their best) then ease your way through the rest of the discography by following @Judge Holden's advice.
While Magma might not be Gojira's best album, it's still pretty dope in my opinion; it feels like they figured out what they want to do with their music and Magma's just a transition album. There's also the emotional aspect of the album as Joe and Mario's mother passed away while they were working on it.

And yeah, From Mars to Sirius is a wonderful album. I recommend to listen it in one go, so you can really vibe with the ambience of it

Has anyone scoped out any local band stuff before? I found some neat stuff from my state like this death/thrash demo.

Belzebubs uploaded a new music video. These guys are a black metal group that are very tongue in cheek with their music videos.

Nice thread you guys have here.
I'm not that big of a metalhead, and I would love to remedy that. Do you guys know any good bands to expand my playlist?
I usually listen to Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Ghost, Amaranthe, and Seikima 2, so anything around those genres would be nice.

I'm not too big into power metal, but there is a couple bands that I listen to.
Crimson Glory
My go to songs are Lady of Winter (starting song), Masque of the Red Death (14:11), and In Dark Places (18:26). A good album, a bit cheesy at times especially with the power ballad Painted Skies.

Conception
Any song will do off this album, it's one of my favorites.

As for Ghost, maybe the King Diamond/Mercyful Fate stuff might work, but it might be an acquired taste in comparison to Ghost due to King Diamond's use of falsetto.

Thanks for the suggestions! These are all real great tunes!

If Crimson Glory sounds good you could check out Helloween, especially the Kai Hansen years in the 80's if you like the Crimson Glory voice. That rolls over into Gamma Ray, Hansen's later band and tons of other things. Find an artist you like and start tracing who they've collaborated with or toured with and stay away from Angra.
Germany seems over-represented in the speed/power metal genre and you will absolutely find bands/albums there if you manage to tune in on what you're looking for and it can be pretty specific, as an example, Running Wild is without a doubt the Rush of German pirate themed speed metal. There's not any competition in that exact space but...


And I would warmly recommend Ayreon's "Into the Electric Castle", it's a 2 disc concept album with a story running from beginning to end about people exemplifying the spirit of their time waking up in a world where they have to cooperate to survive. The 60's hippie thinks he's high as fuck, future man thinks it's virtual reality, the barbarian/viking believes that Odin is finally testing him and so on... It's really weird but it's a great album with lots of different singers for the different characters. Even Fish from Marillion, ooooh, isn't that exciting. Not really, but he's good.

Edge of Sanity - Crimson
I know the post is ~18 months old but requesting that Crimson be played next at parties or bars used to be a fun gag.
