Ryan Bingham - Sunshine

A bit hammy, but I like the production and his sense for the roamin' plains of old...sounds kind of like a modern white boy pretending to be an outlaw but hey, I liked Crazy Heart, I can't really say much.

Black Sabbath - The Sign of the Southern Cross

Nothing will ever knock Mob Rules off the top of the Sabbath pile, for me at least.

Motörhead - Born to Raise Hell, off Bastards

This album's a bit too front-packed for its own good, but when it hits the spot, it hits hard.

"Rose Croix" -
Rose Croix

A little known New Weird Americana(?)/ Martial Industrial group from the states. It's eerie stuff, I really hope I get the chance to see them at Stella Natura this year.

NP: Helloween - Straight Out Of Hell

An album with some really good songs ('World of War', the title track), marred by some mediocre stuff ('Wanna Be God', 'Waiting for the Thunder') and one true abomination ('Asshole'). In other words, some of the tracks could fit on a best-of, the rest is pretty worthless.

Queued:

Secrecy - Art in Motion (first listen)

Really no idea what to expect. Just found this in my iTunes library with a genre tag of 'progressive metal', which can mean anything. At least it's not going to be djent, being from the early 90s.

Dream Theater - Images and Words

The only truly great DT album. Awake is good too.

David Bowie - Heroes

Needs no introduction.

Paradox - Fragile Alliance

German power metal might not typically stray far from the archetype, but it so happens to be an immensely enjoyable archetype for me. First listen to this album. This song also has a pretty unique lyrical bent for metal (An Alzheimer's patient slowly losing the battle against his own brain).

Powerglove - Dr Wiley Stage 1

Holy crap, this is fun. Basically a metal version of a Mega Man song.

Neither I to see them live at this weekend's Hellfest!

Thurisaz from (1997) Graveland - Following the Voice of Blood.

It's like David Gold came back to life to make an album between Woods II and III.

Alrakis - Gas und Staub zwischen den Sternen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POD3riJvL18

Some incredibly thick atmospheric cosmic black metal from 2011. It's like traveling on a sea of stars into a black hole and not knowing what exactly is on the other side... :bow:

Severe Torture - Grave Condition

Nice BDM that has an old-school feel to it. I prefer their first two albums over the three later one, but this slays nonetheless

Helmet - In the Meantime

Those riffs, Page Hamilton's yell, just so aggressive. I remember loving this song years and years ago before I even got into metal. I think this might even be the song that got me to realize that I love heavy music.

Lethargy- Discography


god I'm so glad I'm finally able to have any lethargy. It's so goddamn good, anyone who's a fan of Human Remains or maybe Uphill Battle should look it up.

Edguy - Ministry of Saints

Still kick ass. Derivative of Bruce Dickinson's "Freak," but that just means they are both awesome songs.

Lord Belial - Divide Et Impera

Lord Belial are really fun! Not as much fun as Ragnarok when it comes to cheesy melodic black metal, but fun.

Iron Dogs - Razors Of Doom

Fenriz just shared this on BOTW, and this might be the finest piece of canadian music I've ever heard.

Saxon - Ride Like the Wind

I don't have their Destiny album, so I can't comment on that, but this is pretty rocking. I've heard the original song and this is certainly better.

Kalmah- Seventh Swamphony. 2nd listen and none of the tracks have jumped out at me which is unusual for Kalmah. Usually an instantaneous kick from these guys.

Barren Earth - The Ritual Of Dawn

I LOVE this album. Such powerful and emotive music, and the way the instruments work in unison and are always doing something interesting and memorable is almost unparalleled in the modern metal scene. I'm almost afraid to say this, but I think this album beats the first three Amorphis albums. Not by a lot, but by a sliver. Their second album is almost of the same quality as well.

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.


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. :)


I didn't have a chance to listen to those two albums yesterday, but probably will today cause I'm still on a Decapitated kick :P

NP: Decapitated - Nihility (again)

They were great! A nonstop barrage of crazy technical stuff, and still groovy enough to headbang to. Lamb of God was also great, of course. This was the closest I've ever gotten to see them - maybe about five rows from the front, though waaaaay off to the side, away from the meatgrinder in the middle of the floor.

Well, that was boring.

Dead Congregation - Graves of the Archangels

I got distracted from Decapitated XD I guess it's just a death metal kick now. I've been meaning to listen to this band since someone mentioned them here, and I like what I hear. Maybe a bit less technical than Decapitated, but still crushing. I particularly like the slow, ominous segments interspersed with the faster bits.

Megadeth - Burn!

I so want to hate this, but as awful as Dave Mustaine's attitude, lyrics and overall personality are, this is pretty middle of the road melodic metal.

edit: you know what, fuck this album. The production goes a long way towards hiding how ill-meaning and worthless most of the music is on this, aside from a few good tunes at the beginning and some great guitar playing.

Wayd "Ghostwalk"

Nice album (I like "Decadence" a bit more though). A new album would be nice... they seemed to have fallen off the face of the planet.

Graupel - Von Der Gunst Zur Schelte

Graupel are definitely acquired taste. I think I'm slowly getting the hang of their first album. My appreciation for the demo still dominates though.

Finally giving this one another shot. So far, it's significantly better than I remember. I might be eating my words on this one...

I was really happy with this album. After the slight misfire that was 'The Great Cold Distance', they got back on track with 'Night Is the New Day', and I think 'Dead End Kings' is even better than that one. Glad you're enjoying it now. :)

Joe Satriani - Lights of Heaven

This is one of the best instrumental rock songs I've ever heard. It's just beautiful, and it's got some really tasteful shredding.
