Saint Vitus - War Is Our Destiny

Great to wake up to Vitus. Fuzzy, groovy old school doom - the way it should be, none of this Pallbearer nonsense.


Man, old school is the shizz. We noobs listen to all these fake ass "post-hipster doomgayze".

NP: Poison Idea - Death of an Idiot Blues

Fuckin' raw chainsaw punk by Portland hardcore legends.

Macabre Omen - The Ancient Returns

Music itself is pretty good, but what the fuck is up with the vocals. That sort of keening Burzum/Wigrid sound doesn't work at all in this type of epic black metal. What the fuck SOMEONE GIVE ME AN ANSWER OR I'LL BLOW UP THE ARCHIVES

Vaakevandring - Fader Vaar

Amazing, awesome, excellent, magnificent, marvelous, stellar, fantastic, incredible, every synonym of "great" you can think of.

Nightwish - Escapist

One of the rare instances of the bonus track being the best outing on the entire album.

:aww: I love this album, even with the vocals...

Truppensturm - Gustav, The Great

Fuckin' fuckity fuck fuck fuck!! This album rules SO hard. One of the most devastatingly brutal albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Perfection.

Meshuggah - I

Haven't listened to this song in at least 3 years. I forgot how absurd and insane it gets at times.

Magister Dixit - "Ancient Tongue We Speak" from Maze of Thousand Ways

I had almost forgotten that I owned this album. Nice little piece of melodic black metal here.

Pentagram - Ask No More

Sounds good...haven't heard this in years and years. Hooky, propulsive guitar playing and solid vocals. Gonna have to hear more of this band.

Draconian - The Oath of Wisdom

From their demo days when they sounded like Opeth. Interesting little curiosity.

Damn, Cooper's got a way with words and that guitar solo is burning hearts.

Yes.

Exodus - Funeral Hymn

Trying to whip myself into shape for Blood In, Blood Out. Although I probably should be spinning Hatriot, all things considered.

Goatcraft - In the Arms of Pity

Wondering what this would sound like sped up and played on guitar. Probably somewhat Mercyful Fate-ish.

Kreator - Phantom Antichrist

Sure, lyrics are beyond cheesy, riffs have been on auto-repeat ever since Violent Revolution, but the heavy production and strong melodeath tendencies still make this a fairly solid album.

...

Suffocation - Blood Oath

Can't believe it took me this long to realise this album is too goddamn boring, sheesh.

Erasmus - into oceans, the ever One

Such atmosphere. This band is one of the best US black metal bands I've ever heard.

Pessimist - Blood For The Gods

I kept spotting this dusty CD at my local record shop sitting behind a bunch of new copies of Pestilence's shitty Doctrine. I kept writing Pessimist off as bargin bin material. I never really followed this band before, damn was I wrong. Then one day I listened to Tunnel Rats from this album and holy shit!!! B-line to record store, got the CD home, cleaned it all up, looked perfect and in the stereo it goes.

This is now one of my favorite albums. The material on this release comes off as simply early Suffocation worship on the first song, but then the variation and excellent song writing kick in. The song Tunnel Rats, Unborn (Father), Unspeakable Terror and Wretched of the Earth are amazing.

What can you really say about this? Epic on all levels. Such a powerful song.

Nokturnal Mortum - Goat Horns
I had previously only listened to their latest album, Voice of Steel, but this material is fantastic. I can see why Caladan Brood would be influenced by this material.

I listened to this while driving home from my holidays this sunday (http://viviendoapesardelacrisis.blogspot.com.es/2014/08/vacaciones-de-buceo-en-la-costa-azul-de.html).
I STILL love the guitars!

The Newborn from (2011) Continuo Renacer - The Great Escape.
I LOVE those guys!

Haken - Pareidolia

Album as a whole is only about a 7/10, but I firmly believe this is one of the best prog metal songs ever written. Absolutely perfect and mesmerizing.

27 - Holding on for Brighter Days album

I've had a terrible headache all day so methinks that I will keep my music on the softer side for the evening.

Nevermore - The Fault of the Flesh

One of the highlights from the (rather uneven, IMO) second half of Dreaming Neon Black.

Deathspell Omega - Solafide I

Si Monumentum Requires showcases a more elegant (yet still totally unsettling, esoteric, and grim) side of Deathspell Omega, seemingly.

Primordial - Gallows Hymn

Sweeping, heavy and epic music with a real fire and rage behind it. Very good.

Hyades - Skate Addiction

I forgot how great this band was. They were really definitely ahead of the curve in terms of Italian thrash. It seems like bands are popping out thrash from Italy faster than ever, but Hyades is probably the reason so many of them are doing so right now.

Uncanny - Splenium for Nyktophobia

Feeling about this like I feel about most Swedish DM I come across: fine, digestible, decently entertaining, but doesn't exactly grab me in any specific way.
