Runemagick - Invocation of Magick

I've been on a little bit of a Runemagick spree lately, listening to a bunch of their albums. Great death/doom, and this one is no exception, with long songs and killer riffs, backed up by sweet drumming. I wish they would make some more albums because I really like what they're doing, but it appears it may be all over for them.

Judas Priest - The Ripper

Not much needs to be said here. Sad Wings of Destiny is a fucking classic. Old-School Heavy Metal at its finest hour.

"Cold Of Ages" -
Ash Borer

Finally giving this a listen, it has a tad more melody than Bloodlands and their self titled but that isn't a bad thing, it's like if Agalloch decided to play Funeral Doom. Very excited that they're playing at Stella Natura.


This is such a great album. Listening to it at night with the lights out is a great experience.

Just listened: Marduk - Nightwing

NP: Marduk - Heaven Shall Burn...
This one is way better than Nightwing. Nightwing just seems to be a tad boring compared to their other stuff. The bass tone is righteous though.

Overkill - Ironbound

One of the best on the allbum. I like it better than the opener, although having the first 2 tracks total to 15 minutes is a bold move.

Impaled Nazarene - Post Eclipse Era

Highlight of the album. Even though I love every single second of Nihil (my favorite album of all time) this song is just slightly above the rest.

Lithotome - Comavoid

Ooooh yes, more dark, dissonant, pulverising death metal that comes complete with some Lost Highway quotes. Buying this right now.

Fleshgod Apocalypse - Labyrinth

This is...nowhere near as bad as I've been hearing. It won't top the 2013 list for me, but it's still quite nice. Of course, I only got it today so it needs further listens, but I like this. :) I guess it's not as symphonic as Agony, in that it's in-your-face all the time, but there's still a hundred things going on here. I suppose some people don't like that, but it works for me.

Bathory - Blood on Ice.

Not nearly as good as anything from Hammerheart, but it was Blood on Ice (the album) that got me into Viking Bathory back in 1998. I listened to Blood on Ice until I burned a hole through the CD. 15 years have passed and I keep coming back to this album!

Hammerhead - Viertel Vor Neun

German HC punk, much like Black Flag but heavier.

Slayer - Die By the Sword

Can you believe it? Just got this yesterday. Never heard this before. I'm not so hot on Hell Awaits-Reign in Blood era Slayer. South through Seasons is great though. But this is ultimate metal. I think it's the best I've heard from them. Next to get: Haunting the Chapel.

Dissection - Black Horizons

Goddamn, the opening riff is probably the best Dissection riff ever. So perfect.

maudlin Of The Well - Part The Second

Wish I owned this one on CD. It's worthy of any collection.

GYZE "Fascinating Violence"

Pretty cool Japanese melodeath with neoclassical power metal elements.

Virgin Steele - Mind, Body, Spirit

Still trying to get into these guys. Don't get me wrong, I like them, but I've yet to find anything absolutely worshipful about them, as so many people here do. So far 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Part 1' is my favorite album I've heard. (I have that one, 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Part 2', 'Invictus', and 'The Black Light Bacchanalia'. I could have sworn I ordered 'The House of Atreus, Part 1' a long time ago, but it never arrived.) David DeFeis has a good voice, but he sounds like he's restraining himself a lot on later albums - literally, like he's singing quietly. It kills a lot of the energy the music would otherwise have.

Lykathea Aflame- Bringer of Elvenefris Flame.

Except for the vocals, the arrangement is pure Rush. Just sped up. Actually the whole album reminds me of Rush. One of the best metal albums ever.

Bridear "Thread of the Light"

Yet another Japanese all-girl metal band. Pretty good too.

Analdicktion - "Whoreaphobia"

Finally decided to check out Analdicktion after seeing nothing but praise for them around the web. Can't really say I'm disappointed, because goddamn. :love: Fast, energetic, reckless, and technical slam death with an above-average helping of technicality. Definitely worth looking into, if you like that sort of thing.

What's with japanese all-girl bands always being power metal anyway?

Not sure, must be something in the drinking water. :P I guess Galmet is an exception, being melodeath. There's a few non-metal (visual kei, actually) ones like Exist Trace, Ganglion, and Danger Gang.

NP: Cross Vein "Birth of Romance"
Female-fronted Japanese symphonic power metal. The vocals are shrill as fuck on this. I like this, but it took awhile for me to get used to. Most people would consider this ear-rape.

Orden Ogan "To the End"

Something not Japanese for once! (although I do own the Japanese pressing of this) Much better than their last album, which still hasn't grown on me. I keep telling myself it will, but maybe I'm just deluding myself?

This isn't really anything special, but it is very cool to hear Floor at work again.

Bathory - Mother Earth Father Thunder

While not my favourite era/albums from this legendary act, they are still rather rousing - and that raw, unpolished lead guitar tone is still so trademark Quorthon that it's impossible to resist it's charm.

Cirith Ungol - War Eternal

If this band had survived the music industry, who knows what could have been? Surely they would have gotten so much coke and bitches, selling out would have been just a matter of time.

(just kidding)

Satan - Time to Die

This is outragously, fantastically, unbelievably, extraordinarily good. Life Sentence will definitely be one of my albums of the year, at this rate.
