Anaal Nathrakh - A Metaphor for the Dead

And there we are... That was an interesting journey. Hell is Empty... definitely takes the position of favourite at the moment though.

Mountains Of Mars from (1994) Electric Wizard - Electric Wizard (2006 Remaster).
Starting to listen to this band seriously.

I find them to be ridiculously addictive, I started with some of the later albums, only got round to listening to the début last week, but I've listened to it a few times already. My favourite's probably Witchcult Today, of the albums I've heard.

Evocation - Astray Masquerade

Swedeath in a way that worships Like An Ever-Flowing Stream while still having its own identity. I've been sampling the first two albums to see if I want to buy them at the shop tomorrow, and alas, I do.

So you listened to all of them? Nice. Hell is Empty... is a really cool album, which climaxes to that last track that rips you a new one. It's a good album.

Sadus - Swallowed in Black

Excellent thrash metal of the vicious kind. Their debut album was more toxic, but this one has a little more structure to it. For me, it's about one or two songs too long, but overall this is a really great album. First three Sadus albums are top-quality thrash.

Psychotic Waltz - Spiral Tower

I have this sneaking suspicion that this album isn't going to click until its 11th or so listen, and then after that I'll love it forever and ever.

You are exactly correct. When I first got that album, I listened to it, then thought, 'Huh, that was interesting, but I think I missed something. Better listen again just to be safe.' And then I just kept listening to it over and over and over. Now it's one of my favorite albums of all time.

Dio - Sacred Heart

Edit: Be sure to read the lyrics as you're listening, Ecliptik. They're some of the best in all of metal.

Mercyful Fate - A Dangerous Meeting

This is still perhaps the most evil metal album ever. Metal got more extreme, it got bleaker and it got more nihilistic, but it never matched the sinister atmosphere and pure Satanic glee that this album has. A true milestone...plus it has great Maidenesque riffs and a production that is one of my top favorites ever, with that cavernous fiery sound. Hellish and exciting.

You're right! 'A Dangerous Meeting' is such a great song, a total classic in every way. 'Don't Break the Oath' really captures that... sacred feeling that metal sometimes has. Of course, it's evil as hell, but still.

Psychotic Waltz - Nothing

'Whew, that puts perspective on things, doesn't it?'
'Too much! It's too much fucking perspective!'

Such a great way to end the album. =D

Since I've been listening all day and have been pimping this....

http://jutegyte.bandcamp.com/album/senescence

It's an incredible album, filled to the brim with excellent songwriting and noise. It's like transcendence through sewers...

Agreed on all counts. The initial EP, DBTO, and Melissa are three of the best clean singing albums I've ever had the pleasure to listen to in terms of chilling, evil metal.

Cool. This album is muddy as all hell but it's enjoyable.

Mitochondrion - Parasignosis

I love this thing. The production is perfect for the type of music they play: not too clear, not too muddy, and with soft edges, if that makes sense. I even really enjoy the 9 minute outro track. I couldn't get into their debut album but this is something I do enjoy a lot.

That's fair enough; it's not for everyone, considering what the rest of the album delivers. However, I like it and I believe it fits great as a closer.

If you can make out the riffs through the thickness, yeah. :)

Brain Drill - Quantum Catastrophe

Lots of shit gets flung at this band, but this is a really cool album. A step up from the debut, which I also enjoyed. This album feels a little more complete and better structured. I don't care how much noodling and sweeps there are. It's great fun to listen to. That closing track is just something else!
