Paradise Lost - Rotting Misery

Love the bell during the intro before it manifests into a eerie of feast of death. Primitive, yet effective in every possible way. I think I've started to like this song more ever since I've heard it live. :)

Proclamation – Sepulchral Carnage

Usurper's vocals are so fucking lovely on this song. It just sounds like a ferocious animal barking for 3 minutes but it's so damn pleasing to my ears.

Urfaust - Die Kalte Teufelsfaust

Well, this was a taste which took some acquiring, but now it has arrived, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

Amberian Dawn - Valkyries

I much prefer the re-recorded version over the original.

That's better but I still miss fast Inquisition while listening to this.

Shambless-Menra Eneidalen

Really interesting death/folk hybrid. Well worth a listen, the only band I know that sounds like this.

Bathory - The Return... [Album]

I first gravitated towards Bathory for the Viking material, and slowly, surely came to adore the early stuff as well. Of the first three, this is the album which I listen to the least, but nonetheless really enjoy. The atmosphere, and most of the riffs are spectacular.

Burzum - Rundtgåing av den transcendentale egenhetens støtte

The last half is just mesmerizing. I love the melody that sounds like a horn, and those effects that sound like water drops.

It suffers from being followed by Under the Sign... and Blood Fire Death. To me, The Return...... is the darkest and weirdest of all the albums. Great stuff.

Revenge - War

Decent cover of the Bathory song. Nothing beats the way Quorthon yells WAAAAAAAAAAR.

Some of the riffs on the record are just... so good, and unique; oft imitated but never truly replicated. It was very gentlemanly of Quorthon to ensure that the drums are sloppy, otherwise nobody would need to make any more metal albums, because it would be perfect.

NP: Children of Technology - It's Time to Face the Doomsday

...have I ever mentioned how much I love d-beats?

Dead Congregation - Source Of Fire

Face-melting death metal brilliance. The deep, monstrous vocals panning left and right add even more weight. Highly anticipating the new album. Oh yes.

Fully agree with your opinion of Deafheaven, next trend will be adding blackmetal screams to elevator music and calling it post-black

No need to worry about Inquisition,plenty of excellent fast songs on" Obscure Verses" plus the killer slow and midpaced groove they excel at. They definitely sound like they know what their doing on this new one.

I really liked Deafheaven´s debut, it contains some great tunes, this sophomore album is theoretically more or less the same, but something doesnt work for me.


We made god-The Start is a Finish Line

Nice post-rock from Iceland. The debut album is very good though my favourite song of these guys is contained in the digital ep.

Listening to some classic stuff, specifically Raven's "Wiped Out" currently, which is just too brilliant. 3 reviews, all 100% in MA speaks something.

Menhir-Die Auserwählten

Die Ewigen Steine is an awesome debut of the best pagan metal.

Is the band still active? 7 years since the last album is too much.

Hypocrisy- Osculum Obscenum CD

A solid album overall prefer Osculum Obscenum over Penetralia. Next Up on the playlist is Amon Amarth- Once Sent from the Golden Hall.

Monstrosity - Imperial Doom

Classic early technical death metal as it was intended. Millennium often gets the due praise and rightfully so, far be it from me to take anything away from such a stunning album, but this remains my choice as their crowning achievement. Rough around the edges compared to other Morrisound productions at the time (Death's Human comes to mind,) but every instrument is audible and appropriately, ahem, vicious. Rubin and Gobel's slashing riffs, Van Erp's punchy basslines, Corpsegrinder in his formative years, and an intense Harrison commanding every performance from behind the kit. Slightly sloppy at times, surprisingly, but the sense of urgency is consistent in every song and his creativity is obvious from the onset. If there was ever an album from its time that deserves a proper reissue, this might be it. No tinkering with levels, no twisting of knobs, just straightforward and hot from the presses.

Apoptose: "Ba-137m"


I have absolutely no idea what the inspiration behind this song is (or what the title means), but I've always thought it sounds like the universe exploding into existence, as long as you ignore the dialogue about 2 or 3 minutes into it. The second half is especially great.

Carnage - Blasphemies of the Flesh

Killer, pummeling Swedeath. Can't believe I missed this shit all these years...fun as hell. And with some of the best cover art the genre ever had.

Black Sabbath - 13

Enough time has passed since the last listen. I'm digging. A lot.

Edit: I think I know why. Because, despite Rubin initially wanting the band to 'write the next Paranoid' or whatever, they clearly have decided to draw from the entire Ozzy Sabbath catalogue of riffs. Some parts make me think of Never Say Die! (a personal favourite)-- which, I've also noticed, the band seems to be embracing more lately.

Asphyx - Embrace the Death

Had been put off Asphyx by a few initial forays into The Rack, just didn't do much for me (largely due to Van Drunen's vocals), but this material is a lot more to my liking. Uncompromising, baleful, filthy death metal with pretty killer guitar tone. It ain't pretty but it swings a hefty hammer.

Started off the evening with some filthy black/death, and got around to listening to Wrathprayer's album for the first time... not bad, not too impressed though, going to have to listen again to get a good feel for it. Album's like that never reveal themselves fully on the first listen, I know that for a fact.

Have been listening to tons of Sacriphyx recently, so I decided to put on my Rotting Christ vinyls. Starting off with the Αποκαθήλωσις compilation, and I've gotta say this is incredible music, and a just as a incredible packaging job by NWN! The booklet is very well done and written, the gatefold cover has some excellent artwork coupled with the excellent lyrics on the inside. Just makes it feel so complete and like a true piece of history that I can revisit (even though I was born in '91). Was so pleased with the whole thing I just had to give more praise to NWN!

Rotting Christ - The Fourth Knight of Revelation

Have a great friday the 13th everyone!!! Let the darkness flow

Jimi could make a cover better than the original. DeadSquad can't.
