Artists I could almost like, but don't:
I've spent years trying to like Anathema, but I don't think it's ever gonna happen.
To dislike this band may be considered blasphemy among the heavy metal devout, but try as I may I am simply left feeling unimpressed after every listen.
Apostle Of Solitude
Riding the wave of trendy stoner doom.
A Storm of Light
Irritating vocals spoils their otherwise enjoyable sound.
I find the singer's accent too distracting to be able to enjoy this band.
Bishop Of Hexen
Exceptional symphonic black metal, though I've matured to the point where the whole corpse paint & hail satan thing is a bit of a turn off.
I tried really hard to like this band since their eponymous track is quite catchy, but I just couldn't do it.
