Queensryche - Take Hold of the Flame

This song's kinda overrated. Sure, it's fun and well-written, but the song of the album's gotta be "No Sanctuary" for me.

Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime

Last.fm has it marked as just "Operation." Now I must hear a song about the game Operation.

Queensryche - Waiting for 22/My Empty Room

These tracks plus "Eyes of a Stranger" are probably the greatest shining moment of the album. And considering some of the classic songs earlier on, that's saying something.

Lich King - Born of the Bomb

For all of the shit these guys have had thrown their way from this forum and other circles as well, that hasn't detracted them in the slightest from making huge steps in every department with each subsequent album. While their first two leave a lot to be desired and could hardly be considered anything more than glorified demos (the band itself hardly acknowledges them outside of playing select songs live,) World Gone Dead was an unexpected but welcomed example of what these guys can do when focused and Born of the Bomb is a fulfillment on that promise. Make no mistake, their comedic lyrics are still in place on a number of songs and the Exodus and Vio-lence worship is still the driving force of the writing, but the riffs are stronger, the production is slicker, and the performances are tighter. These are the songs Lich King should have been making from the start and they're aware of that. Significant bandmember changes obviously have factored into their progression but their collective middle fingers to both serious-minded listeners and the "Thrash is back!" retro-heads are still raised. This is hardly a modern classic as there's really nothing new here in the grand sense, but this is some inspired stuff that may get some of their naysayers to take notice. It sure worked on me.

Nice. :)

Anomalous - Ohmnivalent

Even when I don't come to this often, I still realise how great this is. Technical death metal with great mixes of brutality and melody. I don't even care that the drums were played on an electric kit - it all sounds great and it is still worthy of best of 2011 for me. So much going on but you can still catch a rhythm to it.

A_Dreamer_In_The_Theater is listening to Dream Theater! What a surprise! :rolleyes:

Dream Theater - Bridges In The Sky

This took its sweet time to grow on me but now that it has, I love every bit!

Even I need something different than blasphemy, perversion, necropedophile and stuff. I also happen to like prog rock, ol' ska and reggae.

I'm actually listening a only-chilean metal radio, you can check it out here: http://www.codigometal.net/

From what I've seen, some of the best bands are missing and some terrible ones exist, but there are some good bands being played there as well.

np: Cerberus - Redemption of Demigod

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

I ended up buying THE DWELLING and KARMAGMASSACRE :)

Type O Negative - Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)

So good, I've been driving around all morning with this song stuck in my head. Been listening to this album in particular quite a lot lately.

HORSE the Band - Anti-Pizza

I used to be way into their album "The Mechanical Hand" back in middle school, then I stopped listening to them (and many others) when I got into heavier stuff. Now rediscovering/binging on all things HORSE the Band. Such a catchy, fun band that doesn't take things too seriously. I'm falling in love all over again.

Good choices, oogboog. I haven't heard that Exodus album in a long time now, and actually I prefer Exhibit A, anyway, but "Deathamphetamine" is probably the strongest track there. Origin: well, where to start? Antithesis will likely be the highlight of their career that I believe not even they could top. Every song is a winner.

primitivevoid wrote:

More good choices. Dechristianize is a lot better than Icons Of Evil, I reckon. Breeding The Spawn is just good, solid Suffocation, too.

Haeiresis - Transparent Vibrant Shadows

Black metal with a dissonant and slightly industrial vibe (but only slightly). Kind of reminds me of Blut Aus Nord, of the little I've heard of that band. Not the best album of that ilk but it's worth a shot.

And that album just ended....

Undergang - Indhentet Af Doden

The soundtrack to the dirtiest place on the planet. :) Undergang don't reinvent the wheel of the modern "rejuvenation" of dirty death metal, but damn, they do it so well. Second album is well worth getting, too.

Death Angel - Steal the Crown

I'm really enjoying the band's post-reunion material, hopefully the new album they're ostensibly working on will be as good.
