Manilla Road - Witches Brew

Still no beard yet, but I can safely say after listening to Deluge and Open the Gates, I can see where the love for the band comes from; splendidly rugged, idiosyncratically atmospheric, and utterly metal.

"Unru" -
Unru

If done right Black Metal, Crust Punk, and Dark Ambient are indeed a ferocious combination. This is unrelenting.

Sonata Arctica - Paid in Full

I still think this is one of the more interesting albums out of the Europower scene. Nothing else sounds even remotely like it...the wall of sound is actually very intricate and well put together, and Kakko's vocals are incredible, maybe his best ever.

Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale

Esoteric are kings. This album is one of the best, in my opinion, and especially the opening track "Circle," takes you on a great doom-ridden journey. Great album all round.


Indeed. "Paragon Of Dissonance" was my first contact with the band, and it's without a doubt high-quality stuff, but just when I heard "Circle" for the very first time, I considered this to be so much superior to the afore mentioned work. The vocals are more intensive and I also like the experimentation with faster parts. Also, there's really no quality-drop over the course of both discs.

Mithras - Into Black Holes Of Oblivion

Not that different from "Worlds Beyond The Veil", but that's certainly nothing I would complain about.

Porta Nigra - Dekadente Nächte

This band is amazing. One of the strongest debut albums in recent years. I really hope more people begin to pay attention to them. There is nothing here but unimaginable awesomeness and immense promise. Reminds me at times of something like Dekadent, but still wholly unique.

Deep Purple - Space Truckin', off Machine Head

Ian Gillan should be put on trial for letting his voice go to shit the way it has.

I agree with you that both discs show top quality. "Circle" has got to be one of Esoteric's best songs. Paragon of Dissonance is really good, too.

Megadeth - Rust in Peace

Classic album for a reason. Better than Super Collider, right? :lol:

"The Shift" -
Wheels Within Wheels

This is the musical equivalent of being dragged under a moving freight train. Fuck, it's so good. :o

Quickly glancing at that, it closely resembles "cleaning the kitchen".

The missus has a friend over and they're playing The Specials. I FUCKING hate ska :annoyed: :grr:
