Verdunkeln - Die Saat Der Klinge

If you haven't checked this band out yet, hurry up. They are the shit.

Believer - Sanity Obscure

Makes me sad how many write this album off as generic when there are songs like this here. Very fast and intense, yet the riffwork is not only incredibly tight in a way that brings to mind melodeath bands from years later, but instead dissonant in its harmonization.

Immolation - Furthest From the Truth

Absolutely grinding, intense and massive. Immolation at their best.

Devin Townsend - By Your Command

"They hide their finest bean!"
God, this album is a winner in more ways than one.

Rotting Christ- Passage to Arcturo. First listen, primitive melodic black thrash....

Primitive is an understatement. It's pre-Cambrian. It's still good, though I just prefer some of their later stuff.

Fear Factory - Invisible Wounds (Dark Bodies)

Yeah, Digimortal is kinda awesome.

Digimortal is good, but that song is not! It's the only one I skip. I want to get the edition with the bonus tracks, as I think they are better than a lot of the normal tracks.

That they are. :thumbsup: I haven't gotten the newest one yet.

Pensees Nocturnes - Nom D'une Pipe!

What to make of this concoction of black metal and various other styles? It's, in a way, more accessible that the earlier albums, mostly due to the vocals losing some of their harshness of before. I would also say it's got the least amount of black metal of the three albums, showing Verohn is moving into other sorts of styles in a big way. It's a mish-mash of styles, no doubt, but I really enjoy this. One of the better albums of 2013.

Man, that song is so relaxed and spacey! I like it a lot.
(and I had to download the extra tracks, some of them definitely should have been included).

Guilt Machine - Green and Cream

Again with the spaciness. This is fantastic.

Inquisition ~ Magnificent Glorification Of Lucifer

I've listened to Ominous Doctrines like five times, Nefarious Dismal once, and now I'm checking out Magnificent Glorification. I can't get enough of this band. The crushing riffs and croaking hatred Dagon pours out is unbelievable and Incubus drumming is just amazing. Such a tight two piece.

I keep forgetting how cool Inquisition is. It takes some time to get accustomed to the vocals, but they makes some quality black metal.

Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius

A nice blend of death metal with slower, doom sections thrown in. It sort of strikes me as a blend of Encoffination and Portal, although they've got their own style going on. Production is perfect for what they're doing, too. I will have to pick up their debut at some stage.

Nostradameus - The Vision
It is amazing how awesome this is! Euro PM that is raw to the bone.
Nostradameus always impressed me with their Helloweenesque tunes that seem to defy the generic offerings of their Swedish ilk like Hammerfall.

King Diamond - Eye of the Witch

What to say, The Eye is propably the King Diamond album I return the most. Just the first song and my balls already froze. What happens when I get to Into the Convent...

Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing

Do I need to say anything? This album is beyond criticism. Probably the best hardcore punk (and one of the best in heavy music) album of all time.

Steven Wilson - Deform to Form a Star

Basically a simple ballad (besides the fact that it's almost 8 minutes), but this song is just so atmospheric and beautiful.

I don't know, it's cool and a classic and all, but it's also pretty monotonous and boring at times. I mean it is pretty repetive and it's also kinda like a Crank movie in that it is full blast on attack mode nearly the whole time without ever really building or releasing tension. Like a downhill rollercoaster that just goes through loop after loop. Maybe d-beat just isn't my thing. The riffs are pretty good though. In any case I find early Black Flack to be much more interesting musically.

Just to make sure I'm consistent with myself,

Damn this song is so fun (and pretty powerful at the same time).

NP: Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing


See - what you described is what I love about hardcore punk. It is rage, power and anger all the time. To me that is what the best hardcore punk is supposed to be. Angry, obnoxious and vile. Some of the hardcore punk is like that. The early Black Flag singels and EP's, Discharge, Anti-Cimex, Skitlickers even some of the early NYHC bands. Sure there might be musical variety but most of the time it's power and aggression. That is why I love hardcore punk.

NP: Corrosion Of Conformity - Eye For An Eye

Another hardcore punk classic. Chaos, riffs, vile vocals and uber-fast tempos. Awesome.

Blut Aus Nord - Procession of the Dead Clowns

Forgot who it was that described BAN's music as "cyclical prisons", but whoever it was is right.

The Lord Weird Slough Feg ~ Traveller

I've listened to Slough Feg's debut album and it was great. I was looking for sci-fi themed heavy/power/speed records and came upon this. Holy shit. I'm definitely gonna have to check out more of this band besides this and the debut!

Extermination Dismemberment - Survival

Massive slamming walls of sound. Similar to Katalepsy's new one but stripped down. Chocked full of knuckle-draggin' slams.

Tegan And Sara - Closer

Now, I know a lot of you are probably not big fans of Tegan And Sara, and would probably be even less of a fan if you heard this album (Heartthrob) for the first time. But fuck, is it ever a grower. I only ever really enjoyed two T&S albums before this came out, those being This Business Of Art and So Jealous, and when I first listened to this album, I honestly hated it. Really. I really, really hated it. But after a few more listens here and there, it really grew on me, to a significant amount. It's now my most listened to of all their albums. God, it's so good. These two ladies have a gift.

Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings

It has been about 8 years since I listened to this, and now I remember why. The riffs are extremely dull and the songwriting is bland as hell. The only reason to listen to this is Matt Barlow's voice.

Iced Earth for most of their career has been more-or-less carried by their vocals. They need these singers who can tackle a variety of moods and styles and be a dynamic force in the music, because the riffs are infamously the exact opposite. Their live shows are boss regardless, though.

Almah - Zombies Dictator

What a strange song this is, verses with "modern metal" riffing and Edu Falaschi doing harsh vocals (!!), a chorus that dives right back into Angra-style melody, and a cool solo. I can't deny I find the chorus catchy.

It's strange someone with Barlow's talent didn't seek a musically better band.

Theatre of Tragedy - And When He Falleth

One of the quintessential gothic metal songs for me. Plus the original album version just screams mid-90s in the production department.

Some people just have bad taste.

Dark Funeral - In My Dreams. My fav DF tracks are the slow to mid paced ones. The riffs usually are a bit better crafted than the uberfast stuff.

Another gothic anthem. Just a big, depressing, 15 minute love letter to suicide.

Sacriphyx - Food for the Front

The entire album that this track belongs to is a gigantic grower. Found myself pretty indifferent to the work as a whole during the first couple of listens, but it finally clicked hard and now I can't stop playing it. Great stuff.

All of that Iced Earth bashing makes me sad :( But well, at least you guys aren't shitting on Barlow. Guy deserves more respect.

Alice in Chains - Heaven Beside You, off Alice in Chains

You know, I feel pretty stupid for noticing it just now, but this song's chorus sounds like something straight out of a Beatles record.

Correction; the most metal man to never play metal is Tom goddamn Waits. Case closed.

PS: Cash is awesome though.

Megadeth - Super Collider

So this leaked. Even as an ardent defender of Thirteen and someone who didn't really think the title track was all that bad (from a certain point of view)...this ain't too great. Maybe it's a grower, but right now I'd rank it around TWNAH or maybe even Risk.
