Perisynti - Hiilenmusta Lammas

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiffs! Really hard rocking mid-paced glorious Finnish black metal. The really croaky/barky vocals work well for the punkier bits but I kind of wish they had higher, shriekier vocals for the more epic bits.

Dark Tranquillity - Hours passed in exile
I love the entire Damage Done album, but this one has to be my favourite. Great stuff.

Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - Midnight Bird

These guys have filled my musical void. So refreshing. :headbang:

Eternal Tears Of Sorrow always sounded like a satire name to me. Like The Black Satans. :P

OnT: NP is True Kings Of Norway. One of my favorite splits.

Anathema - A Fine Day to Exit

I found the small amount (and length) of the reviews disturbing so I thought I should do something about it.

I love it, but my favourite tracks on it are the opening track, and Old Thunder, both of which are on the first half. Listened to as a whole, however, the whole record is utterly fantastic.

The album is FANTASTIC from start to finish!

Hounds Ditch from (2007) Orange Goblin - Healing Through Fire.
Enjoying this album more than I used to.

Pyogenesis - Rise of the Unholy

Massive, downtuned and absolutely crushing in its delivery. Killer and undeniable heavy.

Eh? I don't remember there being much similarity. Guess I'll have to take another look, since I don't spin Sabaton very much.

Savage Circus - Of Doom and Death

Silly bitches, this album's pretty sweet if you ask me.

I'm currently in an Abruptum kick. Damm, those latin titles seems a bit hard to read. Does someone the meaning of "Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectére Me" what I read is '(The) Darkness I summon embraces me'.

Or, maybe, "The Summon of Darkness Embraces Me"? Dont really know.

Hufsa from (2005) Arcturus - Sideshow Symphonies.
Fuck! STILL my favourite Arcturus album!

Angkor Vat - A Pulse Beyond Nothing

Raw, but very atmospheric black metal. The fuzzed out and repetitive nature of this recording makes it rather hypnotic, good stuff.

Vinnie Vincent Invasion - Shoot U Full of Love

Cock rock, obviously. Amazing, cheesy glam with ridiculous guitar wankery. Just about the most 80s thing ever.

The Nightspectral Voyage by Obsidian Gate

I'm going to go ahead and say that this is the best symphonic black metal album I've ever heard.

The Momentum by Torchbearer

some massive sounding, epic melodic black/death metal. It is pretty sick and has Christian Alvestam on backing vocals and, if I remember correctly, guitar.

Gamma Ray - Guardians of Mankind

The guardians of mankind are losing their faith
And Kai Hansen shifts up to sing far above his range
If guardians of mankind don't shelter our souls
Kai's poor abused voice will soon lose control


The gear change would have worked better with Ralf Scheepers.

Deceased - Witching Metal (Sodom cover)

I find it hard to bring myself to dislike pretty much anything Deceased does anymore. This is glorious.

"The Song of Returning Light" -
Absinthe Minds

I'm not exactly sure how to describe this album, I think that's what the point was... It's some kind of weirdo, incredibly lo-fi, psychedelic, droney Folk stuff. Yeah... Something like that.

Black Sabbath - Cornucopia

Took me very long to finally check out Vol. 4 - well, it fits right in with the other five classic Sabbath albums quality and sound wise, and that's all I'm asking for.
Having been a System Of A Down fan in my teenage years, I never even realized that Snowblind is a Black Sabbath cover until now. :oh shit:

Samael - Above

Want to refresh it, I remember it as an album with pretty great potential wasted by being heavily monotonous.

(1972) Black Sabbath - Vol.4 is a nice clasic Black Sabbath album, yes.
What?!? I only new about the Black Sabbath version! I FUCKING hate System of a Down.

Master Of Disguise from (1997) Arcturus - La Masquerade Infernale.
I should try to enjoy more the other albums by Arcturus (I only REALLY like (1991, 1994, 1996) Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symphonia + Constellation + My Angel (2002 Remaster) and (2005) Arcturus - Sideshow Symphonies).

Catching up with some stuff from this year...

NP: Impious Baptism - Wrath of the Apex Predator

After the truly stunning EP last year, I had high hopes for this one. It doesn't disappoint.

Queued:

Dream Death - Somnium Excessum (first listen)

Haven't listened to Journey into Mystery as much as I would have liked to, so I really don't know what to expect, but they have a solid reputation and are popular among people whose opinion I trust so I'm looking forward to it.

Immolation - Kingdom of Conspiracy (first listen)

I enjoyed Majesty and Decay a lot more than many, it seems, and the teaser tracks I heard were very enjoyable, so I think I'm going to like this one.

Just finished

Decapitation - Winds of Creation

and about to start on Nihility.

I'm seeing them tomorrow supporting Lamb of God, and never having listened to their earlier stuff, thought I ought to check it out. Really solid.

Great new Blackened Death Metal band in vein of Dissection.

Have fun. I saw this show about a week or so ago and Decapitation slayed. They played several songs off of Carnival and Organic also if you want to continue to prepare. Lamb Of God was deafening. :)

Bathory - The Wind Of Mayhem

Classic Bathory never disappoints.

I'm indifferent about them now, gravitating towards minor annoyance about their undeserved popularity. Still, not a glorious chapter in my biography.

An assortment of Storm Large songs

Forgot about this chick (she was on that ancient reality show Rockstar: Supernova-- remember that?). I used to listen to her shit all the time, and I remembered her suddenly. Still good shit. Pretty diverse and wild stuff.

Black Sabbath - Zeitgeist

The guitar from 3:35 onward has a Planet Caravan vibe to it which, of course, rules. \m/

Shining (Nor) - Healter Skelter

My first contact with the band. I'm not sure how to explain how it feels, but it's basically like explosive mindfuck which feels good.

Inugami Circus-Dan "Kami-No-Inu"

Sounds promising so far. Just what I need, another Japanese band with a sprawling discography to rape my credit card. :P

This is one HELL of an ep. Crushing, crushing Swedeath hitting all the right spots. Fuck the haters of revivalism.

Wild Autumn Wind from (2013) Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle.
Strong Summoning vibe BUT... I don't think they have the same quality.
