surprised nobody's mentioned fushitsusha yet, i think certain things they've done are the heaviest things i've heard, but also obviously early swans, and i find hototogisu at their heaviest to be the heaviest current band i can think of.
sunn o))) are heavy and everything, but their theaticral nature creates levity.

Shit... the moment I saw the thread's title I thought of early swans.... Therefore, I'm going to say Einstürzende Neubauten, they've always had a "heavy" dimension, such as with the Silence is sexy or some of their early stuff (at least Kollaps).

Glenn Branca's symphonies are always heavy, at least the ones I have, and, adding to the Swans', the Angels of Light cd I have (Since I left you) is also pretty heavy, sort of calm but hard on the low-end of my aural spectrum, so to speak. Enough to get my trusty speakers to buzz like fuck.

Am I the only one here that thinks the Zeppelin's "Achilles Last Stand" is the pinnacle of heavy?

John Bonham was a fiend behind the kit.

I would go more towards In The Evening from the late Zeppelin for the most heaviousity, but yeah very heavy. Achilles last Stand was Jimmy Page's favorite one they say.

Other exceedingly heavy songs from this supergroup of virtuosic musicans:
(you know, as opposed to rambunctious bunches of bands that you can't even tell their songs apart or what the name is of the damn "song" and aren't fit to even lick The Beatles boots)

Custard Pie
In My Time of Dying
Bring It On Home
When The Levee Breaks
No Quarter
and the heaviest:
Dazed & Confused live!

I had forgetten about that one. Solid choice.

"In My Time Of Dying" takes it for straight up blues heaviness.

thanks for ...

but anyway,

nice to read the learned opinion of someone for which actual music is not anathema, by the way.

Oh yeah! Dazed and Confused live.

The part that sticks out for me there is the bow solo when it's just all rumblely noise and then breaks down into the wah/hand slide part to finish it off.

John Paul Jones' hell-spawned bass aside.

Another heavy hitter is "Sunshine Of Your Love" Those tones don't come out with anything under 10.

i've never made it all the way thru a led zeppelin show, so i guess you could say that's heavy (as in boring).

i like no quarter better than dazed & confused, riffwise, dazed is better (smoking sabbath when they were still shuffling to the blues) but if you are talking heavy, no quarter is fucked. that's like khanate 30 years before.

Funny thing, an awful lot of these groups being mentioned...they're all wimps & poseurs. The music business is such a business now, after all. And the art suffers, so the music suffers.

How so? How are many ultimately poseurs? (besides the fact that none of them are virtuosic musicans with some being barely "musicians" at all?)

Refer back to my original post in this thread.


Every artist I mention was addicted to drugs. Almost all of what I mention was written, composed, recorded and performed live while everyone involved was smacked out of their fucking minds.

Now please, don't try to form some juvenile argument that I'm saying all great music has to be made by drug-addicts. That obviously isn't true and I wouldn't hold it as a prerequisite per se. But what is undeniable is that most of the best music throughout history has been made by drug-addicts.

Keiji Haino is a virtuosic musician; he can play it straight with the best of them, and simply chooses not to a great deal of the time. He does do the occasional "jazz" set on guitar, and he definitely knows the instrument inside and out. I hardly think anyone who can play for 12-18 hours straight at the age of 50+ can be called either a "wimp" or a "poseur." Fushitsusha definitely made some of the darkest and heaviest music I have ever heard. I'm pretty sure Haino steers clear of the drugs too, but drug use or non-use matters little to me.

I really didn't think much of that song when I heard it. It sounds like a Guess Who song I found.

Haino shits on everyone. There's a four-bar passage on the live video where he plays this entirely straight, proper old-school, Zep-esque metal 'lick' that confirmed exactly what you're saying. It's a 3 1/2 octave run, five times, in 7 (or probably more, I forget) positions at lightening speed, utterly sick. And then he goes back to the excruciating thing that we all know and love him for.

I reckon a mention of Wagner and Mahler can't go awry at this point.

besides, weren't we over this already? you don't need to know how to play to make great music and just because you know how to play is not something to frown upon?
