Vulture Industries - Race for the Gallows

Sounds like a giant, heaving, malfunctioning machine. Pretty interesting.

The Pineapple Thief - All The Wars

I love this band (everything about them is as awesome as the name), and this is possibly the best variation on "acoustic ballad" I've ever heard.

Fates Warning - Point of View

This song rules, and 'Parallels' is a great album. If the new Fates is anywhere near this good, I'll be thrilled.

How accurate is the Arcturus comparison? Your post prompted me to look them up and "Arcturus clone" seems to be the general consensus.

NP: T.O.M.B. - Uncovered Ancient Gateways

This album is blood-curdling and menacing... I really can't come up with enough words to describe how creepy it is.

I remember hearing some Arcturus and thinking it was crap; this is at least kinda good. From what I hear it's different enough...you'd have to compare em side by side I guess.

The Meads of Asphodel - Last Train to Eden

Satan "Life Sentence"

Not sure if it was necessary buying the Japanese pressing, but at least this album is good enough to warrant it.

That album is good, but I don't seem to like it as much as other death metal/grindcore stuff that was coming out at the time. Good choice, though!

Their debut is pretty much The Sham Mirrors structures/riffs with La Masquerade atmosphere/vocals. See that, for example, 'Soulcage' is an echo of 'Ad Absurdum' and 'Pills of Conformity' really brings memories of 'Kinetic'.

The second album I think it's different and less 'deritative', but still carries a similar 'Masquerade' feeling and the vocals are pure Garm's worship. I think VI took some notes from Diablo Swing Orchestra as well.

np: Tryptikon - Abyss Within My Soul. Fucking crushing!!!

Just finished listening to Rise Vulcan Spectre by Nekromantheon - it's every bit as intense, jagged and unforgiving as the first time I heard it. Also reminds me that I should sew on the Nekromantheon patch I've got lying around somewhere.

NP: Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast

The best Maiden album IMHO. Every song on here is great, even Gangland.

Queued:

Falconer - Chapters From a Vale Forlorn

One of the few folk/power metal albums I can tolerate. It's fun stuff.

Razor Sharp Daggar - Human Test Subjects EP

Raw grind from a couple of years back. Don't remember how good it was.

Anal Cunt - 40 More Reasons To Hate Us

The high point of AxCx's glittering career, and one of the best grind albums ever. RIP Seth Putnam.

I was going to finish up Kreator's Pleasure To Kill. Shame they never topped that album; it's clearly their best.

Daemonia - Dario Argento Tribute

This is a weird record, since it's essentially a cover/tribute album, but one of the band members is Claudio Simonetti of Goblin, who composed most of these songs anyway (although not all, Keith Emerson and Morricone are also featured). This is sometimes called a metal record. It isn't really, it has some loud guitars in it, but the keyboard melodies are still the main component. I think most of the songs featured here are better in their original versions (although I haven't heard all of them), but one thing they do nicely is take these songs from different sources and create what sounds like a pretty coherent album out of them.

Ulaan Passerine 2xCS

Beautiful and psychedelic drone. The acoustic guitar leads in this are excellent.

Leave it to Esoteric to make an improvised jam terrifying. Brilliant.

Bro! Good choice!

You listen to Ulaan Khol too?

A bit more agressive, but some awesome psyche/drone/beautiful noise . La Catacomb is soooo good.

Ulaan Passerine is the first of his works I've checked out, but I definitely am going to listen to Ulaan Khol soon after.

Lonewolf - Hellride

First full Lonewolf album; I dig it. I even like the goofy Muppetesque vocals. Fun shit.

Queensryche - A World Without

I'm extremely happy with this new album. To me, it sounds like it could have come out between 'Empire' and 'Promised Land', or maybe instead of 'Empire'. It's mostly at a relaxed pace with lots of soaring melodies, but there are heavier and faster songs. Excellent stuff, all told. \m/

Pulled out Sons of Northern Darkness today. That album has everything. Fantastic riffs (the blast beat riff in Demonium is angry as shit!), solid, powerful drumming, thick presence, and awesome vocals. I have zero complaints about that album.

Lonewolf - Dragonriders

Album's pretty solid so far, but nothing spectacular. It's basically just more Lonewolf.

Circulation of Light ~ Meditation VI from "LEDNAH : Seven Meditations On G​.​F. Handel's Organ Concertos Op. 4"

Wow, that's all I can say. This really evokes alot of emotion from me. It's just so stirring for me, for some reason I don't even know. I haven't heard Hansel's Organ Concertos but this is beautiful none the less. I found this by searching the artist Analog Winter and Marag were discussing a few posts ago "Ulaan Passerine", that led me to this wonderful little label "Brave Mysteries" that offers alot of experimental electronic/folksy artist with alot of pseudo-mystical vibe going on. Which in turn led me to this artist on the label, and wow, I'm glad Analog Winter brought up that other artist or I never would have found this. Thanks man!

Trail of Murder - My Heart Still Cries

Pretty weak title but a kick ass melodic metal tune. Love this album.

This will probably forever be my favorite RPG Random Encounter theme of all time. I've spent 400+ hours of my life on this game, and I'm nowhere even close to being tired of it.

Ragnarok - Time Before Birth Of Light

They fall just short of greatness. If they'd be just a bit more competent at epic riffs and emotional complexity they could be like Sacramentum. Still very enjoyable though.

Casket (ger) - Under the Surface

Only discovered this the other day and am loving it. Kind of reminds me of the first Creepmime album crossed with Asphyx, plus it has some strange touches that make it just a bit odd.

Burnt Church: Embracing the Void

some great grind that kinda reminds me of Triac. And perfect raw yet clear production.

Autopsy - The Headless Ritual

I'm a little surprised by the mixed reviews this album is getting from a lot of people. The solos, the riffs, drumming and vocals are excellent.
Classic Autopsy for me.
Some dumbass on here gave it a score of 20
