Yes, Mornox's eight was indeed for "Thousand Swords." I would've given him an eight for his Leviathan review if I had been around to accept it, as well.

Anyway, don't get too intimate, folks. Do so, and I'll give SoulSeekJay an eight for his 235,573th 98% "metal"core review next time he inevitably comes around, just to spoil your fun. ;)

EDIT: I'd be interested in seeing some reviews for the Greek band End, if someone could oblige.

Would anyone really care if I deleted all, or at least most, of SSJ's reviews?

By the way, anyone who has 'The Wreck-age" by Tygers of Pan Tang, please review it.

You're a mod now, too, eh? I'm really out of the loop.

Anyway, the answer to your question is a resounding "no."

The Demigod review for "Slumber Of Sullen Eyes" is up if anyone is interested. Some feedback would be appreciated, if possible.

I accepted that one. You did a fine job. With the addition of that review, there was no longer any reason to keep the Falconsbane review on the page, said review being inordinately diminuitive.

If his first paragraph was any indication, we were in for a fine review. Too bad it doesn't always turn out like that.

A negative review of either Bonded by Blood or Darkness Descends would so totally make my day.

That seems really difficult to happen. Bonded By Blood is regarded as one of the best thrash albums ever (agreed) and Darkness Descends is UltraBoris´ favourite album and so 95% of the guys give it scores over 90%. It´s a really nice and brutal thrash album but it´s not THAT great as many people wants you to believe.

Indeed. If I were to review that album now, I'd give it something in the range of 71-80.

I'd give it more like 75/85. :D

I just gave Darkness Descends a 48, and I felt that was probably a little charitable.

Meh. Bonded By Blood is overrated. I'd like to see someone trash it.

An album with 6092 riffs and few dynamics. It must be better than "Nespithe"...

I agree. Demilich is overrated due to their distinctiveness. Darkness Descends is overrated (not even the best Dark Angel album) but not by much , and Bonded by Blood is nothing short of a thrash masterpiece. You people should stop thinking that music is all about integrating surrealism and nihilism in post-structualist and holist manners.

I agree.

P.S. I've just noticed that Funebre's Children of the Scorn album hasn't been reviewed yet. I'm a terrible reviewer so count me out, but perhaps someone else would be willing to volunteer for the job

My Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution review has been submitted, but not accepted. I believe Sticky requested it prior to the hack, so here it is (finally).

Thanks much dude. I'll check it out as soon as it's accepted.

EDIT: Just read through it. Excellent work yet again. :)

My pleasure. Well, I wasn't experiencing much pleasure the other two times I tried to write it, but I'm fairly fond of it. And another eight points doesn't hurt.

I was being sarcastic. "Nespithe" is classic.

In reply to the second part of your post: No.

I encourage someone to write a review on Gorgut's Obscura that details the thematic implications and overall feel. Never have I seen one.

I certainly don't feel up to tackling Obscura at the moment. I might be able to squeeze out a Golem review though.

Thematic implications: WE'RE REALLY TECHNICAL.

Overall feel: Overtly technical Death Metal.

Final verdict: The following album was better, much more balanced and focused. And you can't go wrong with their early stuff.

It would be nice if some of the people who have heard some latvian bands, would tell about their impressions in a form of review. Bands like Nglected Fields, Skyforger, Sanctimony etc.

I'm not sure if he's heard it. We'll soon find out when he notices this thread.

GoD: I've only heard "Dreamweaver" from Golem, how does their earlier work compare?

Whilst Dreamweaver is a warped, sweeping, almost blizzard-like chaotic landscape (though paradoxically, warmer than their other recordings), Eternity: The Weeping Horizons is a much more measured, imposing beast. "An exploration of the vast and complex space within the human mind, often jaggedly weaving through unstable territory."* The transitions between moods are just flawless, making this my favourite of the three.

*A description originally intending to describe Golem's sound as a whole, over at the MJ board. I feel the debut best represents it, though.

The 2nd Moon is probably the weakest, but it still serves as the logical gap-bridger between the debut and latest (though closer to Eternity...), retaining the chugging, unsettled melodies of the former whilst integrating a few of the more syncopated, sweeping ideas that would appear on the latter. The unusually mechanical rhythmic nature of the debut isn't as prevalent, and the melodies/structure on this one are less unique and effective than on the other two, but you'll be hard-pushed to find a release with a lower fans-to-quality ratio.

Hah, I'm not sure I could do it. That album really mystifies me. I used to have it, but no longer. I should remedy that though as it really is an interesting piece of work, and maybe more intensive listening would help me to draw some definite conclusions about it.

BTW< I definitely didn't think "From Wisdom to Hate" was a superior album, but, on the other hand, "Erosion of Sanity" is utterly fantastic.

Someone should do one for Autopsy's "Severed Survival". That album needs more reviews.

It stands as possibly the best-produced NWOBHM album ever, and was fairly advanced (at least in places) for the time, so I'm just surprised considering the number of nwobhmosexuals on here that it's not been reviewed.

Heavy Metal Mania approaches being my favourite NWOBHM song, and Death and Glory is enjoyable too (with the rest ranging from decent to annoying). I'd recommend it as one of the best NWOBHM recordings around, if you're into that sort of thing. ;)
