Chugging UM / Metal UM

I saw a post from someone here that they don’t like when Jake goes on a chugathon. I’m sorry to break it to you, but metal UM / chug town UM is probably my favorite type of UM.

See Cemetery Walk II 8/14/21

Metal jams = good
Using chugs to move an aimless jam along = good
Chugging all over the rest of the band when it’s already a good jam = unforgivable

I hate all chugs, but

Power to ya man.

Check out AiT 03/16/2018 in Portland; you might dig this jam. It starts with some trippy hammers and pull-offs, but Jake starts chugging about 8 minutes in. I remember being frustrated when it started happening thinking it was ruining the jam (@Whinergetsnothing’s Cat 3), but the band kept it psychy and Jake kept it tasteful :kissing: so it ended up working like Cat 2.

Thank you for the suggestion :grin:

Also, I remember plenty of jams a couple days earlier in Missoula being heavy. Think that was the heaviest UM show I’d ever been to. Going to listen back to that one soon, but off the top of my head I think the Synco jam went into Tool territory.

I love Tool so I will have to check it out

@Pookells get in here and help this brother out.

@Zencer Crooked One 10/23/08 is probably the best metal jam UM has ever done, period.

While it doesn’t really fit the chugging format, check out the 3.5.10 All Things Ninja for some sexy DnB since you might be new here.

Also, what’s your show count?

I’m listening to a quick 10/23/08 Crooked One so I can say definitively that PlunJOTY is better metal
