Thou - Tyrant

My first time listening to this one all the way through, it has a different vibe from the other Thou full-lengths, but it's still awesome.

Mael Mordha - All Eire Will Quake

New discovery, hearing this for the first time and digging it. Got it from the sampler that comes with Terrorizer magazine. I like this a lot and will most likely pursue this band further.

Cradle of Filth - Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder (title track)

Took me a while to pick up this album, but after a couple listens I'd say it's pretty solid.

Nightwish - Deep Silent Complete

I guess this is as good as Nightwish gets, which will never be great to me, but it's certainly passable.

Interesting. I think "FantasMic" is easily the best song from Wishmaster, and possibly the best Nightwish song I've ever heard.

I think it is great personally; love that album. Such a unique sound with the style as well as the production they chose. It's a symphonic metal album that favors the riffing and vocals over the keys, and the melodies give it a nice, exotic texture I think.

Autumn - Skydancer in the car on the way home, one of my favorite songs ever.

^ checking the above album (Autumn - Altitude) out for the first time, and I'm digging it so far. The overall vibe is somewhat reminiscent of recent Katatonia albums, which I love, with obviously more gothic overtones. Seems to be a calm, inviting album. I could see this one growing on me even more. Cool :nods:

AufHeben "華-HANA-"

Yet another Japanese sub-genre clusterfuck. The production is a bit (unsuitably) raw, but I'm getting used to it. Overall, I'm enjoying this.

Ah yeah, it's a treasured album of mine. It's very laid back and wistful, but the melodies are so beautiful that it's out of this world. I haven't really heard anything else like it.

This is just a perfect set by my favourite singer, especially the song circles. Getting more excited for seeing her on Saturday now, will be a band show rather than solo acoustic though.

Aura Noir - Gaping Grave Awaits

Watched Nocturno Culto's "The Misanthrope" yesterday, now I'm inspired to listen to the Aura Noir discography...

I actually just deleted Gorgoroth from my computer. Used to be a fan, no more.

Aura Noir - The Pest

Now this is where it's at in terms of Norway.

I love early Gorgoroth, and Quantos is a great album as well.

Yngwie - Rising Force. Classic and always will be.

Vomitory - Blood Rapture. This and Redemption are their best work though they've never released anything less than excellent.

King Crimson - Islands

I actually really enjoy Boz Burrell fronting the band. Great album. Eclectic mix. Steven Wilson version owns, obviously.

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic

What else to say. I can only imagine what all the stoner-teens of the 70s were thinking when they smoked a joint to this newly-released album.

Nothing wrong with violins! This is a good album, even though I usually don't like stuff like this. Skycontact is nowhere near as good, in my opinion.

I don't have Redemption and I can't find it anywhere, but I hope to pick it up one day. You're right that all their releases are at least good (Primal Massacre is the least good, but still not bad), which is a good feat for a band spanning over 20 years.

Yeah, this rules still, and always will. When I first heard it I didn't like it much, but it quickly grew on me.

Pig Destroyer - Book Burner

Still a winner for their discography, in my opinion. Nothing will ever top Prowler in the Yard, but Book Burner still has its fair share of great riffs, with the drumming as good as it's ever been.

Time for another listen. Think this is my least-listened KC album.

Kamelot "Silverthorn"

Its strange, I rarely listen to these guys, but I still feel compelled to buy all their stuff. The Japanese pressing for this has pretty nice packaging (as does most stuff on King Records).

Yngwie j. Malmsteen ~ marching out

My buddy brought this vinyl over out of a stack his uncle gave him. First time listening to malmsteen at all. Im impressed, "I'm a viking" and "disciples of hell" were fucking awesome.


I wish I could hear Yngwie for the first time again. That's a great album, mate; glad you like it!

Blind Guardian - Ashes to Ashes

'Somewhere Far Beyond' simply cannot be faulted. It's amazing. FUCK YES!

@Empyreal: I've been listening to 'Wishmaster' more, and it's growing on me. That and 'Oceanborn' are definitely keepers.

My second favorite of theirs after The Black Halo. Tremendous emotion there really.

Thiestru, yeah Oceanborn is very good too. Century Child is another keeper; impeccable pop metal.

Motorhead - Another Perfect Day

Anyone who said "Motorhead are always releasing the same album" can go fuck themselves, this is so different from an album like Ace of Spades.

Mork Gryning - World of the Dragon.

Return Fire is a killer album. Raw, melodic and thrashy black metal. Needs to be revisited by anyone and everyone that wrote the band off after the first album........which wasn’t their best anyway.

Garden of Shadows - Oracle Moon, off the album of the same name

It's been an obscenely long time since I listened to this beautiful, beautiful album. Majestic, epic death metal, not to mention completely atypical for America.

Dream Theater - Goodnight Kiss

Someone talked about James LaBrie being influenced by Freddie Mercury in the vocalists' thread and this song is the strongest I've heard those influences come through.

Excellent album, song and band. Possibly their best. Another great band that people disregard post first album.

Immolation - The Devil I Know

Failures For Gods seems to have not a single memorable track, but still it's a very enjoyable album. Immolation have death metal figured out. Their formula just works.
