Dream Theater - Learning to Live

This live version doesn't have the awesome fade out that I'm used to but the more aggressive vocal approach James is going for here is something that I miss in the studio version. I love the emotional intensity that starts around 6:30 and gets released at the end. Probably the best thing Dream Theater ever came up.

As for Novembers Doom, try The Pale Haunt Departure, dude; that album is awesome.

I already did. I grabbed 'em all.

Novembers Doom - What Could Have Been

Considering they got Anneke to do vocals for this pretty mediocre song, the title is quite apt.

Nightwish – Planet Hell

One of their few brilliant post Wishmaster songs imo

Novembers Doom - Of Age and Origin - Part 2: A Day of Joy

I think I figured out why I like their later albums more. They sound almost exactly like Anathema. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but my brain says it's the latter.

Tsorer - Sodom

Never heard of 'em have ya? Well you're missing out on some damn good stuff here. Black metal with a unique sound and flavour of their own.

Also listening to ENVENOM. I'm going to buy some new Sabbat albums tomorrow. Should I get the newest one? I only own their debut.

As a general guideline I prefer buying old albums first, but aside from that I can't help you. Envenom is the only one I know so far.

Bathory - Hades

That is the only Monumension song I really like, it has such a sad atmosphere.

Orphaned Land - Mercy (Paradise Lost Cover) (Live)

A classic example of a cover being greater than the original.

Pretty much. Oceanborn is still one of my favorite power metal albums of that era I have to say. What did you think of Imaginaerum? I was kind of indifferent to it for the most part, seems like they are not gonna get away from the bloated orchestral side of the last few for a while. I did appreciate the attempt at more experimentation though, even though a lot of those didn't work completely.

Riot - Fall Before Me

I was so anticipating this album to come out, and when it did I remember thinking it didn't quite live up to expectations, but listening back I think it's one of Riot's best. I heard that Mike Flyntz wrote a lot of the guitars on this album, so maybe this upcoming one without Mark will still be good.

Merzbow - Worms Plastic Earthbound.

Getting into this is proving to be the most difficult musical endeavour I've ever embarked upon. Simply impenetrable, but inspiring. Also that album cover is an eye-fuck.

Thergothon – Everlasting

I havent heard Imaginaerum, i just cant listen to a Nightwish with no Tarja and not to mention i think their new stuff is decent but awful when compared to the first 3 albums.

Orphaned Land - Birth of the Three (The Unification)

This song touches me in places that make me feel good.

Orphaned Land rules!

Listening to -I by Darkspace again. I loved the melody buried beneath the dense layers.

Powerwolf - Sanctified with Dynamite

I'm really cruisin' down the list now. As for this tune, it's about as fun as anything can be.

Elderoth - Stars Within Shadows, courtesy of YouTube

I'm not digging these vocals at all. He sounds like a neanderthal trying to imitate the vocalist from Black Majesty.

Prodigy - No Faith for the Liar

Now this is much better. I've never heard these guys before now, and I can tell already that was a mistake.

Prodigy - Prisoner (Of Your Own Soul)

This vocalist sounds like 80s Geoff Tate and Marco Hietala had a love child. It's rather surreal.
