More like Faith No More

I've recently become enamoured with Faith No More's catalogue after only being familiar with the famous "Epic" from when I was a kid. I want other heavy-yet-tuneful music recommendations. [more inside]

SomaFM for metal?

I'd love to find a site like SomaFM which focuses on heavy metal -- or even different rock genre in general. Something with hand-curated, sub-genre specific music streams, of a known quality. There are plenty of places to find lists of individual radio stations with online streams, or random Joe Schmo's shoutcast streams, but wading through all the dreck to finding anything worth listening to in that crowd is more time than I care to spend. I like that when I'm in the mood for "something generally electronic and calming" I know I can pull up a particular Soma stream that sounds appealing and have it hit the spot; similar for Digitally Imported. Is there anything similar for loud music?

Stoner/Sludge Metal: Where should I start?

Thanks to a recent mefi comment, I have become aware of Stoner Metal and Sludge Metal, and I am intrigued. Listening to a few bands on youtube (Ufomammut, Horse Latitudes, Capricorns) it reminds me of the late 1970s/early 1980s when I was a teen listening to lots of early heavy metal (Black Sabbath, Saxon, Deep Purple, etc.) I've been out of touch with most of heavy metal for 20 years; what 21st century bands and/or albums should an old-school Sabbath fan listen to?

Why did you listen to Poison?

Heavy metal hair band music. What made it popular? What was it -- musically -- about Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Ratt, Warrant, Cinderella, etc. that made it hyper attractive and super popular for its time? What were you listening for, exactly? [more inside]

I'm thinking of a song...

Hopefully this won't be too obscure... There was a pretty popular Japanese rock band that had a song which was basically a rocked out heavy metal version of Dies Irae from Verdi's requiem. I think the CD is from the early 90's or so. What's the name of the band? (and no, it's not from the Battle Royale soundtrack. That was a purely orchestral version)
