Carcass - Exhume to Consume, off Symphonies of Sickness

You know, this is a pretty weird, unique album, all in all. Nothing quite like it out there, when you think about it.

Trouble - The Truth Is What Is

This band is proof that christian metal doesn't necessarily suck, even though it usually does.

Skeletonwitch - Reduced to the Failure of Prayer

Sometimes you just have to take a minute to appreciate how solid Skeletonwitch are; the Bolt Thrower of this generation of metal. I still need to listen to the new one, but it's on the way in the post, and I've heard a lot of good things.

Dimmu Borgir - Allehelgens Død I Helveds Rike

One of the finest of their post-sound change period.

Captain Beefheart - Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)

Beautifully weird. And that closing poem is just heartbreaking. It was supposed to be about the Captain's growing struggles with MS.

Savatage - Edge of Thorns

I'm always puzzled by the critiques this gets here; it's absolutely wonderful. A masterwork of rock music.

Kula Shaker - K

Mid-90s psych-rock. Really cool stuff with an interest in Indian mysticism.

Iron Maiden - 22 Acacia Avenue

I'm in an Iron Maiden mood today! I'm going to be listening to everything up to and including Seventh Son of a Seventh Son for the next few days, I think.

Windhand - Soma

Boleskine, to be exact.

Definitely one of the best doom albums this year.

Convulse - Oceans of Dust

The new album is not great, but I think it does pick up a bit towards the end. The start of the album is very mediocre.

If they play the same set for the whole tour, Rotting Christ will probably be playing largely new stuff - they're on great form though!

NP: Destroyer 666 - Australian and Anti-Christ

Top-notch blasphemous goodness to start off this study-session.

Impaled - Faeces of Death

I'm yet to hear the new album, but I'm assuming it's as awesome as everything else... Hopefully they haven't gone the way of Ghoul.

Virgin Steele - The Final Days

Lyrically might not be the most original thing DeFeis ever came up with and I dare to say that this song sounds slightly generic...but man, talking about a fun headbang-worthy tune full of anger here.

Judas Priest - Dissident Aggressor, off Sin After Sin

I wonder what kind of reactions this got when released. Shit was insanely heavy for its time.

Daniele Gottardo - Guitar Sbrego

I just found out a new guitarist to admire, my favorite guitar player is Guthrie Govan, and this guy definitely has some Guthrie in his playing.

Symphony X - Bastards of the Machine

It's a testament to how good they are that they had such good slow, ballad-type songs before, but they clearly always wanted to do a record of songs like this and "Dehumanized." They sound sure of themselves and on fire here.

Esoteric is incredible. This song could not be more fitting for right now.

Disarray - I'll Be Standing, from In The Face of the Enemy

Not sure what led me to dust this one off and pull it from the shelf. It is actually much better than I remember it being despite the constant Pantera worship.

Cradle of Filth - She Mourns a Lengthening Shadow

I'm a total nut for these kind of synth orchestra pieces, and this might just be the finest of all the ones I've heard.

Unholy shit! that looks like a killer show, does Rotting Christ ever play their old demos/albums? That would be a treasure to see live.


Long live true black metal, long live Bathory worship, he demands more!

Masters Hammer - Duse nesmrtelnych

Been spending the last few weekends getting up making a strong cup of tea and sitting down to MH demos, its becoming a RITUAL, hahaha.

Captain Beefheart - Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)

It makes more sense the more you listen. Fucking addicting music. "When I See Mommy, I Feel Like A Mummy" is my new favourite jam
