Lingua Ignota - Caligula

What an experience… so powerful and unsettling.

Artillery - At War With Science

This is one awesome song typified by a mean main riff that acts as a backbone to the track.

I like it now :-P

Sepultura - Troops of Doom

I prefer the version that appeared on Schizophrenia over the original version from Morbid Visions.

Absolutely. It was recorded during the Arise sessions and was a b-side on one of the singles, but it was also bizarrely appended to a CD reissue of Schizophrenia.

Deep Purple - Turning to Crime

First listen. Sounds like fun. Gillan's voice is in great shape.

Not for me. I love the rawness of the original.

NP: Vigilance - Blood and Black Lace

A pretty cool throwback to first wave black metal. I'm sure that fans of Malokarpatan will like this.

Interestng thanks.

Excoriate - Voice Of Damnation

Loads of different paced riffs crammed into one opener.Some serious headbangers among them and capped off with caveman vocals.
Great start to the amazing On Pestilent Winds album.

Iron Savior - Protector

The kind of kinetic energy of the guitars and overall writing is exactly what is so great about PM at its best. Pure fucking adrenaline. This was always pretty clearly the band's best album by a lot to me.

Here is hoping the run through their 2010s stuff is a bit more positive haha.

Currently spinning Iron Savior - Starlight, which I do remember being quite a highlight of The Return, both then and now.

Black Label Society - Doom Crew Inc.

Where the hell did this come from?!?! This is easily his best album, IMO. Tight, memorable songwriting; no filler; no reliance on the silly overdone pinch harmonics.
Shockingly, this will likely be a year-end top 10 for me.

Death Angel - Veil Of Deception

It's acoustic but i'm guessing this was originally penned as a metal thrasher.Label interference unknown..
Some smooth crooning from Osegueda here,that man has a fine voice.

I've almost completely lost interest in the new stuff; Kill or Get Killed was alright I guess but the single from Skycrest just didn't grab me.

Slough Feg - Death Machine

Definitely a top 5 album for metal guitar mastery for me. Every song is so gloriously packed with cool stuff.

Wind Of The Black Mountains - The Shadow (Hill of the Horned Goat)

Currently flattening out this warped smorgasbord of dark satanic oddities because let's face it,getting vinyl delivered long distance in the winter is a risk.
I will succeed though.
It's the album cover you can't stop staring at.

Hades - Face The Fat Reality

Guitar solo has one of those chilled out,slowed down almost like a riff downstroke moment before getting back into the upper fret widdle.
Very cool playing.

Temnohor - Do ponurých smrečin hmla sa zakráda

Really gives the feeling of the slovakian woods and mystic legends.
Great!

Black Sabbath - "Too Late" from Dehumanizer
Dehumanizer seems to grow continually stronger with age. The sound, production, and songs are festering with a heavy energy that's thick as steel. "Too Late" is this album's "hidden" masterpiece, IMO. Dio's phrasing is otherwordly and Tony's solo screams with the exasperation brought forth by the lyrics.


Agreed on Dehumanizer; that record gets more powerful and more relevant with time.


It was my introduction to Sabbath. Could never understand why it was often hated on. Good the situation is being rectified now :P

NP: Core Of Dying Earth - Eternal Dust

Actually going through the whole album on their bandcamp as a part of my effort to catch up on new Russian releases to figure out whether I'm ideologically that unpatriotic or if Russia doesn't indeed have that much metal I could enjoy. The female singer is competent. The music is... okay.

Antichrist - The Black Pharaoh/Sinful Birth/Burned Beyond Recognition

The fantastic middle third straddled across two sides.I get why it's not as popular as the debut but there are some really good thrashers on here.

Henry Rollins and the Hard-ons - Let There Be Rock

I'm sure there are a hundred covers of this classic already done.This one does it for me.A heavier guitar tone with Rollins spitting venom circa 1991.

Overkill - Feel the Fire

While there are no bad Overkill albums, the Gustaffson era is 1,000x stronger than all that followed. Their full lenght debut is one for the ages...

Fear off the same album is one of my favourite Iommi penned tunes from any part of his career. Bible Black and Breaking Into Heaven also top shelf….

All time classic. This and Wrecking Crew are my two favorite Overkill songs.

Paradise Lost - Your Hand In Mine

I really like the Nick's vocals on Shades of God. Maybe they're not death growls like on LP and Gothic, but still harsh.

Sentenced - Capture of Fire

Just some melodic/technical death stuff.

Protector - Retribution In Darkness

Just some death/thrash stuff.

Judas Priest - Sin After Sin and Stained Class

Perhaps an unorthodox opinion, but this is where Priest becomes truly ageless and heavy. I don't quite agree with the track order of Sin After Sin and it's still a somewhat transitionary work but Stained Class is pretty much flawless, maybe with the exception of Better by You, Better than Me which I am not fond of.

Their two best, IMO (followed closely by Sad Wings and Killing Machine).
I find their 70s output is significantly more interesting than all that followed.

The main riff of ''Fear'' sounds like a Bolt Thrower riff to me...very heavy stuff.

NP: Immortal - Storming Through the Red Clouds and Holocaustwinds

Perfect for the cold weather...what an intense, frostbitten record.

Rhapsody of Fire - Chains of Destiny

Yup, this is a Rhapsody of Fire album alright.
I think I liked "The Eighth Mountain" a little better but this one's fun too.

Yeah, the 70s stuff is by far my favorite era of them... good shit in the 80s too but it was much more direct.

Savatage - Miles Away

Fits well with the grey skies and dead trees and all.

NorthTale - Nature's Revenge

Having slogged through an hour of unimaginative, boring garbage, we finally get something interesting. At the very end. Sigh...

Stranger Visions - Defying Gravity

I know what I was expecting was unrealistic, but I'm disappointed anyway...
