Correct, they are often much better on De Profundis.

NP: Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales EP

CF's best release by a long way. To Mega Therion has filler. Yeah, I said it.

Queued:

The Ocean - Heliocentric

Haven't listened to this for a while but I remember there being some great songs on it.

Nuit Noire - Infantile Espieglery

I haven't yet come to a conclusion on Nuit Noire. I think I like them, but they're pretty weird.

Threshold - Slipstream, off Dead Reckoning

Good, chunky prog. Pretty cool indeed, although I prefer Damian Wilson over Andrew McDermott (not that the latter is bad at all). I also feel that the growls, as good as they are, are rather out of place.

Yngwie Malmsteen - Braveheart

Killer song from an absolutely underrated, amazing record. 'Facing the Animal' is easily in my top five Yngwie favorites.

Black Sabbath - 13. I've been listening to it a lot to get a good idea of what's going on. It was easy too see through the record.

Sepultura - Schizophrenia

Not as good as Beneath The Remains or Arise but still pretty good and a bit more extreme and veering to the death metal side more so than thrash.

Brian Eno - Ambient 1/Music For Airports 2/2

Listening to this, drinking chai and not writing essays like I should. So relaxing.

We were talking about this last saturday night.
I prefer (1987) Sepultura - Schizophrenia to (1989) Sepultura - Beneath The Remains.

Ærie Descent from (1999) Thorns vs Emperor (Plus 1989-91 Rehearsals as Bonus).
From the (1992) Thorns - Trøndertun Demo. Need some creepy riffing!

I like McDermott better just a bit. The new album is within a hair of being as good as DR, but I just think DR is a little more emotional and raw.

I'm listening to/watching The Killing.

Marduk - "Baptism By Fire"

Love these riffs. Marduk is definitely becoming one of my favorite black metal bands.

Austere - To Lay Like Old Ashes

I'm really liking this album so far, very emotional and powerful black metal.

The harsh vocals on that track made me do a double-take at first, but I ended up loving that song and nearly every second of that album. I even dig the cover of Muse's Supermassive Black Hole. It's easily one of my favorite albums of all time.

NP: Incantation - Dying Divinity
I've been on a pretty righteous Incantation kick recently. Classic, meaty and monstrous.

Saint Vitus-Zombie Hunger

Reagers is a superior vocalist to Wino utterly no contest, Wino's redneck old man vocals have nothing on his expressive soulful rockish tone. Music is still shitty though, but I really love Reager's voice.

NP: Fukpig - 3

I don't understand why Fukpig don't get more attention. They've released three albums and they're probably the band who've released the most consistently fantastic material over the past ten years.

Queued:

Bastard Priest - Under the Hammer of Destruction

Good new Swedeath with the single most important factor - songwriting ability. 'Total Mutilation' is a doozy.

Bathory - Bathory

Bathory. Bathory. Bathory. Has a nice ring to it.

Same song, again.

Really? IMO PDM is one of the better examples of the hyperblasting style. Certainly better than fucking 1349...

NP: Parlamentarisk Sodomi - De Anarkistiske An(n)aler

This is just a really good grindcore album. Manages to pull off an 11-minute grindcore song too, and fit it into the album well.

Queued:

Swans - Holy Money

Early Swans is always good stuff. It's also a part of the era that appeals more to me - not quite the pure industrial visceral feel of Filth and Cop (which has a time and a place), but the slightly more accessible approach of the stuff going into Children of God.

Terrorizer/Nausea - Split Demos (bootleg)

Classic grind and classic crust demos. Who could refuse?

Svart Crown - Profane.

Lovely piece of chaotic blackened death metal with slight tinges of melody. The drummer's a beast

Paradise Lost - Rotting Misery

No idea why Greg and Nick dislike this record. It's some good old fashioned doom/death with a creepy twist to it. ''Breeding Fear'' and this tune are still some of my favourites by the band.

Big End Bolt

Nice Mid-paced BDM that focuses heavy grooves despite not being slam. Quite tech as well. Igor Fil does wonders here as well as the new Katalepsy that he's in.

Cheesy Mercyful Fate worship.

Inter Arma - The Survival Fires

Playing Sky Burial again. It's definitely one of the best records I've heard this year. Crushing riffs. The drums sound fucking fantastic, very organic and the playing...

Dream Theater - The Mirror

I finally started my long overdue journey through all the Dream Theater albums. Really liked Images and Words, don't know how I feel about Awake. It's not as catchy as Images and Words, and I don't feel like the songs are going anywhere.

For me, that album explodes to life after "Erotomania". The second half is so intricately detailed, and the cohesion and flow from song to song is so smooth and perfect that it just barely brings Awake as a whole ahead of Images and Words.

___________

Megadeth - Tornado of Souls

I wasn't listening to anything when I wrote that, but now "I'M SAFE IN THE EYE OF THE TORNADO!"

Children Of Bodom - "Scream For Silence"

Just picked up Halo Of Blood today, and so far, really liking it. It's like the album that should have been between Follow The Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll.

Black Sabbath - End of Beginning

My first run through the full album and this song is very good. Feels just like old Sabbath except a much clearer, cleaner production. If the rest is anything like this I'll be plenty happy.

Birds Of Tokyo - White Witch

I'm not normally into that alternative rock/pop shit, in fact, I hate about 99.9% of it. Luckily, these boys are part of that 0.1% that I do not, and could not ever, hate. They're fantastic songwriters, the lyrics are brilliant, deep, and well-written, and their musicianship is about as top-notch as it gets for this genre. And don't even get me started on their vocalist. Ian Kenny is a goddamn godsend. His vocal control is amazing, and his feel for melody is astounding. Give these guys a try if you ever feel in the mood for a more aggressive alternative rock/pop band. I recommend their Universes album first. Or maybe Day One.

Avantasia- The Scarecrow

So, about three months ago I bought an iPod after a year and a half of being without a music player of any sort (sans car stereo). I've also recently moved and had most of my music collection in storage so it would be less to move later. Today I cracked open the boxes and have been loading up my music player, rediscovering old music in the process. I really like this album; the epic themes, the soaring moments, the nice array of guests. The title track in particular is fantastic, especially in that middle part when Tobias goes all fire and brimstone preacher on your ass. Awesome.

Man, this is just proof you're cool. Prolly my second favorite Sammet-penned album ever, next to Age of the Joker from Edguy - you'd love that if you like this album.

Excalion - Life on Fire

Killer fuckin' power metal. Just ace in every respect...better than most bands ever get.

Manson doing a stoner doom song. It works incredibly well.

Dirty Women from (1976) Black Sabbath - Technical Ecstasy (Japan SHM-CD UICY-25124).
Is that considered classic Black Sabbath? Something is lost!
