Frost Giant - "The Harlot Star" from The Harlot Star

There is no reason that I should love this album as much as I do. First pleasant surprise of 2018

Johnny Winter - Boot Hill

Pure rock and roll glory... just gusto, attitude and screaming heavy blues. The vocals are a whiskey-soaked holler and it's glorious.

Pagan Altar - Judgement Of The Dead

Sadly overshadowed by Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Venom and Saxon. Pagan Altar and Witchfinder General really helped in kick starting the Doom Metal movement on the scale that Motorhead and Diamond Head did for Thrash.

I didn't say so but... fuck this band, really.

Darkspace - Dark 3.12
I've decided to listen to the album that this song is on due to the reviewers high praise of this release. To be quite honest, I'm not really impressed at this moment. Maybe it'll get better later into the album.

Give this time, man. My first live show by them at Hellfest was amazing... from outside cause the sound was shitty inside. Then, I had to enter the tent.

Slayer - "213"
One of the outstanding tracks from 'Divine Intervention', an album that is arguably Slayer's last finest effort. This song works similar in framework to 'Dead Skin Mask', it has a slow to mid-tempo and continue the serial killer theme they were high on back then.

Pantera - "It Makes Then Disappear"
Moving at slow to mid-tempo this song trudges along while detaching your skin from your bones with its sharp riffs. Dimebag's guitar solo fits right in as it slithers its way around the rhythm.

NP: Summoning- Night Fell Behind
One of my favourite tracks from the new record (Which hasn't really stuck with me yet).

In Flames - "Dead God In Me"
In Flames when they were good from their best album. This is probably my most favorite track of theirs.

Ramesses - Cult of Cyclops - Damn, now that's what i call crushing doom metal. Love the dirty black metallish vocals and Mark Greening's killer drum work. Hope he resurrects Ramesses in the near future now that he is out of With The Dead.

Not sure what to think. The guitars are a bit too buried.

Visigoth - Salt City, off Conqueror's Oath

I'm digging this habit they're stablishing of throwing in a rockier, more NWOBHM flavoured track amongst all the epic warrior stuff. Should sound out of place, but it works very well.

I would say that's one of my favourites off the album, but who am I kidding, they're all my favourites!

Gatekeeper - Blade of Cimmeria

This is a total fuckin' banger! Get hyped for the new album, lads!

Falconer-Locust Swarm
Man this is their heaviest album, not my favorite song personally(The Priory and Dawning of a Sombre Age are perfect) but still a kickass song.

Yeah that recent one is really heavy for them, which is nice because the couple of albums before it did nothing for me.

Forest - Obscurity

The album is terrific but Obscurity is exceptional. The atmosphere of this track is just beautiful and I absolutely love everything about this song.

W.A.S.P - Tormentor

I ignored this album for a decade and a half because of the imagery, but there are some great songs on it. This is one of them.

Tiamat - Ancient Entity

For years this fell under the ''it's not really bad, just not my thing'' category I always found a little odd since this sort of doom/death/atmospheric stuff is usually the kind of metal I love. Now somehow this just managed to click since a couple of days, surprisingly enough! Are you happy now, LegendMaker? :lol:

Megadeth - "Sweating Bullets"

Absolutely the worst Megadeth song ever written. I would blame it to the laughable spoken word-style vocals that Mustaine employs here. While not a vocal prodigy, Mustaine usually chooses appropriate vocals that fits the music he creates. For this song though, the results are cringe-worthy.


I dunno, man, to me that's a fun song. I don't take it seriously because I can't take it seriously. It has the same effect as "Crush 'Em", for which I believe even the Big Dave himself commented it was dumb...

Spoiler: show
...even though I like that song as well. The whole of Risk can be enjoyable when it's not put against the rest of Megadeth's catalogue. At least in my opinion.

Fates Warning - Awaken The Guardian (1986 Dutch LP)

Recently got a copy of the first pressing vinyl and have been playing it daily ever since. Probably my fave by this band.

War Ensemble by Slayer recorded in 1989? Released in 1990. Good introduction to the Compact Disc.

New Necrophile. Really decent death metal done by an old band. Worth checking out.

Judas Priest - Saints In Hell

"Beyond the Realms of Death" is great and all, but the real winners on Stained Class for me are the title track and then this absolute banger of a song. So good.

Anthem - Bound to Break. Find Anthem more enjoyable than Loudness, but I guess we don't need a Japanese 'Priest v Maiden' topic......or do we?

Falconer - Upon the Grave of Guilt

Thanks to Diamhea's thread I popped this on. This album made me an instant fan back in the day. Love these guys. Sadly, I never got to see them.

Darkthrone- "En as I Dype Skogen"

Epic, evil, melodious, even hypnotic. Not my favorite track on the album, but a solid closer.

Miscreant - "Virgin Snow" from Oppressive

Following along and trying to decipher the lyrics on this album is just as entertaining as the music itself.

Kaledon - Clash of the Titans

First listen to this record (Legend of the Forgotten Reign - Chapter IV: Twilight of the Gods), and it's getting the job done. Lots of high-speed power metal so far. This is the first track to really grab my attention, but perhaps with repeat listens, the rest will grow on me. And there's still about 30 minutes to go, so hopefully more material as strong as this track.

They announced a few years ago that they would stop touring and become a studio band, so it's quite likely that there won't be any more shows. They were never really a major touring band (nor all that good live).

Mob Rules - Astral Hand

Big and cinematic, with a great chorus and loud, pounding guitars. Great tune and great album.

Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No. 1: Lent et douloureux

My final exam is in three days and Satie's music is the only thing I'm okay with listening to at the moment.

Anaal Nathrakh- The Joystream

While Desideratum isn't their most rock solid effort, and honestly the same can be said about every album after In the Constellation of the Black Widow, this one tics all the right boxes, while still following the traditional AN song structure. Impressive.

Cauldron- Queen Of Fire

First time ever hearing this record. I really enjoyed "In Ruin", so I decided to try another one. Not digging this one quite as much, but it has a few good tracks.
