Emperor - Into the Infinity of Thoughts

Having one of my bi-annual listens to Emperor to see if like them yet; everything sounds solid in theory, and I'm enjoying it more than I used to, but likewise, their place at the very top of black-metal is, I think, always going to baffle me.


I've never enjoyed the production of that album.

Sodom - Magic Dragon

I've slowly been getting into the band, only made it up to the Agent Orange album so far, but every time I listen to it, I remember I need to explore more.

If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend checking out Tapping the Vein, it's definitely my favorite Sodom album. "The Crippler" is an absolute beast.

Overkill - Ironbound

Even if this song was 30 mins long, I'd still listen to it all the way through just for that scream at the end. Holy hell, man. :love:

Pestilence - Obsideo

Hey this isn't half bad. Modern and full of groove but also has some cool, odd swinging riffs to offer. I might check the entire album soon.

Theatre of Tragedy - Fragment, off Musique

Solid radio goth rock. Nothing deserving of repeated listens though.

Skeletonwitch- "More Cruel Than Weak"

Just picked up the latest album the other day, finally giving it a full listen. Pretty good, no surprises=no disappointment.

Rhapsody - Angel of Light

Not great, but easily better than anything else they did. As in, it isn't annoying, hyperactive shit.

Grave Miasma

Man, this music feels so raw and primitive and just pure evil. I love the production as well, everything sounds amazing and the delay on the vocals is cool too. Excellent band.

The production is the main reason I don't think Anthems isn't essential.


Kreator- Flag of Hate the re-recorded version

So much better than Endless Pain's version. That tempo is just perfect for it!

Mogwai - Like Herod

If there's any song in the universe that dares you to get the cops called on you for disturbing the peace, it's this one. Must. Turn. Up. Louder.

When this album was rumoured to be released, after the excellent and well received demo, 7" and Enslaved split, there was quite a stir in the then underground, and speaking as someone who was around at this time, eagerly waiting for it to drop, it's hype was out of this world crazy. When it eventually was available, it blew minds due to the epic scope and power it evoked. Couple that with the members notoriety, obfuscated, and still quite raw production, dark, majestic, and sweeping song craft, a creation of otherworldly demonic delight was beheld - nothing else sounded like it really at that time.

Order Of Orias - Bleak One

This album is offering surprise after surprise. The slower tempos and being a slave to compounding, harmonically layered riffs that swell into commanding, dark mantras is damn good, as it sucks you under into the morass of serpentine coils. Bloody good stuff.

I remember the first time I listened to this. It was something like WTF?!?
Then, sloowly, you get used to and enjoy it.
It's, in fact, and incredible album.

This last one sounds like, yes, more accesible to me.

Watain - The Wild Hunt

There seems to be a fair amount of controversy surrounding this album although I personally think it's excellent. Sure, it sounds different than the likes of Rabid Death's Curse and Casus Luciferi but the aura of Watain is still completely intact and untainted. I don't mind when the audible tapestry of a band changes as long as there is a consistent wellspring of spirit and inspiration behind said changes so, indeed, The Wild Hunt slays.

Bathory - Home of Once Brave

The majesty of this song is hard to overstate. It tends not to be mentioned alot when brining up quality viking metal. It's not as varied and rocking as Shores in Flames or Valhalla, but the atmosphere is just amazing, you just let the bass and guitars wash over you with that pounding drum beat.

I'm just listening to a little Foo Fighters right now and I've come to the realization that regardless of what one might think of his stuff, Dave Grohl bar none has a resume that nobody in the rock or metal world can fuck with ever. This guy has played music with legends as varied as David Bowie, Tony Iommi, Sir Paul McCartney, King Diamond, Bruce Springsteen, Roger Waters, Tom G. Warrior, Lemmy, Tom Petty, Slash and a myriad of others on top of being in the same band as "Grunge god" Kurt Cobain and of course his own bestselling band. Truly a man with bragging rights wherever he goes in the music world.

Rush - Cygnus X-1

Of the four Rush albums I know, none strikes me as particularly outstanding. All of them are quite enjoyable, but nothing amazing. Just really solid prog rock all the way.

Hail of Bullets - Swoop of the Falcon

Just got round to the new Hail of Bullets; it's got a lot more enjoyable atmosphere than the last one, and I've got the rest of the album to work out how the song-writing is overall. So far, so very very good.

Black October Songwriting Challenge Submissions

Quite a rollercoaster. Some good stuff, some fucking weird stuff, but all interesting.
Except "Nature", I.. uh... I don't like that song at all, okay. That's not even black metal, yo.

Death - Flattening of Emotions

Like Emperor, Death are another band who I've spend a long time feeling like I must have missed the meeting about. It sounds a lot more enjoyable today than it used to, to my ears, albeit already a bit more wanky than I tend to take my death metal - wankiness well deployed, mind you.

I do like that one, despite what I said in the thread. I just like Hell more when they go epic and long winded, just bust out crazy, metal to the bone riffing. That one is a little too vocal oriented for me to call it one of my favorite tunes, is all.

Dark Tranquillity - Projector

This is the last Dark Tranquillity album that I can really get into although I absolutely love it - the experimental vibe, the emotive content, the whole melancholic atmosphere ... it's definitely one of my favorite pieces from the melodic death metal movement.
