It's been a while since I really dug into some Rush. Grace Under Pressure is killer... "Distant Early Warning" is an easy standout and "Red Sector A" is an arresting piece of work. Always liked "Body Electric" too. That album was also my go-to for proof that Geddy was a killer singer.

Sleater-Kinney - Tomorrow's Grave

This whole fucking album just pops. Great strong hard rock.

Incantation - Onward to Golgotha

The first time I've heard it, didn't like it all that much. Thought it to be a poor man's Nespithe (yeah, I know OtG was released two years earlier, but still). Second time around, it clicked. This thing makes Morbid Angel sound like Helloween. Pure evil.

Sentenced - Frozen
Their best album, IMO, and among the best of the ubiquitous 90s Century Media "dark metal". Everything came together perfectly here.

The Lord Weird Slough Feg - Warriors Dawn

Hrm, it turns out that I like Down Among the Deadmen, and that I must've been confusing it for Twilight of the Idols or something. I went to revisit this album, and, welp, there were about 7 or so songs that I already knew I liked, soooo...whoops?

Jungle Rot - Haunting Future

Not a bad cut or album by these guys, pretty much what you expect.

Alice Cooper - Muscle of Love

I've heard AC since I was a wee lad on local rock radio. Seen him open for Maiden a couple times and at a festival. Was great live. But I have never had any AC in my music collection so I grabbed his Mascara & Monsters comp yesterday. A lot of deeper cuts I've never heard along with this big radio hits. So digesting this today. Some of his stuff sounds like nothing I would have expected. This track has some nice bass playing and drums.

Not sure why you'd dislike Twilight of the Idols either - all their old stuff's so good.

Black Majesty - Dragon Reborn

One of the songs where it's like I don't get how you'd hate PM if you heard this. Careening guitar madness.

Black Majesty - Far Beyond

Haven't played this one in ages. I remember being absolutely blown away when this came out. Playing it now and yeah this is their best shit after the first 2 for sure.

Meshuggah - Immutable

Nope. Special shoutout to the youtube comments on this one, great stuff:

"They are by far the best modern metal band"
"What about Gojira?"
"Oh yeah, I forgot about them, Gojira is heavy as fuckkkkkkkk"

Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats - The Night Creeper

The ominous feeling present in those tracks is just perfect and the riffs are flawless.

Hangman's Chair - Touch The Razor

An 11 minute long monolith of heavy, crushing doom riffs and grungy vocal hooks. Absolutely bleak and melancholic. I won't be surprised if these guys blow up in popularity in the near future.

Iconic - Second Sin
Another in a long line of melodic hard rock 'supergroups' spearheaded by Frontiers Records. This one consists of Michael Sweet from Styper, and current/former members of Whitesnake, Ozzy, Thin Lizzy, Dead Daisies, etc ad infinitum. Total ass-kickery!!

Heilung - Lifa

A fantastic concert film and one of my favorites of more recent music.

Cradle of Filth - Midian

Hey, this ain’t half bad. This is way less pretentious than Cruelty and the Beast and somehow Dani’s vocals are less grating than on previous albums.

Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum

It means go, cursed, into the eternal fire. Savage. This band always makes me think of Dante's Inferno and that sort of imagery, it's the only band that does that and I appreciate them for it. I can imagine Deathspell Omega being the background music as he descends through the circles.

Yep, and most tracks on that compilation are from this phenomenal run of albums:

Love it to Death (1971)
Killer (1971)
School's Out (1972)
Billion Dollar Babies (1973)
Muscle of Love (1973)
Welcome to my Nightmare (1975)

In the course of just a few years he made rock history. After that, he could have stopped recording solid album after solid album – he would have still become a legend. My favourite is "Killer".

"The telephooone is ringing…" :headbang:

NP: Cirith Ungol – Half Past Human

Good EP with a strange atmosphere (ominous epics + biker vibes), maybe even better than the comeback album "Forever Black".

Fellowship - The Saint Beyond the River

Cheesy as all hell, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Absolutely infectious.

Faith No More - Jizzlober

Angel Dust is the ultimate curve ball album. Everything about this is weird and unconventional particularly the songs. You thought FNM would bank on the formula that they discovered when they hit gold on their hit song 'Epic". But not only do they don't make another rap metal song, they made an album full of songs that were entirely different from the songs that they made from their previous album. It's the ultimate grower too as after the first listening, you'll feel flabbergasted with what you just heard. But subsequent plays makes you like the songs and the albums more.

Behemoth - Thelema.6

I love this era of Behemoth so much, these albums never get old even though I've heard them so many times. Satanica, Thelema.6, Zos Kia Cultus... you could feel them building up to the monstrous Demigod, album by album. They really had some magic with these, and Nergal was absolutely brutal at this point. He's definitely my favorite metal vocalist if I had to choose one.

Mortuary Spawn - Spawned from the Mortuary 12".

Recently picked this up after I played it a bunch online. I've heard of tapes where the same songs play on both sides but this is the first record I've come across that has the same songs on both sides. Curious to see what this band does next.

Hog Molly - Kung-fu Cocktail Grip

Damn, (almost) every single record that Tad Doyle is on is a fucking success. It’s a shame that his works are so underrated.

The version on A Show of hands is phenomenal

I never heard any of their live albums.

Cauldron Born - Full Moon Revenant

It's just so exquisite how Howie knows the DNA of metal inside and out - a real gem.

Might have to try em then.

Nuclear Death - Aunt Farm

I really think this band stripped extreme music down to the core of what it really was. Just so fascinatingly depraved.

Vesa-Matti Loiri - Legenda

Loiri was a larger-than-life figure in Finnish popular culture, excelling in acting, music and sports. He died today, aged 77.

Samael - Passage
Listening to this for the first time in a loooonng time. It's just as great as I recall it being.
This was so far out of left field AND ahead of its time upon its release. Astounding record. They lost some steam afterwards, as subsequent albums were never as strong as this (and nowhere close to Ceremony Of Opposites).

Fugitive - The Javelin

Brilliant opener, Blake knows how to fucking riff. With Power Trip being inactive for so long now I'm super stoked this happened, hoping for more soon!

I’m trying to reacquaint myself with Post-Metal these days. You either get it or you don’t.

Delain - The Quest and the Curse

Welp, they've revealed their new vocalist. Diana Leah sounds a hell of a lot like Charlotte Wessels. Reminds me of when Tommy joined Kamelot and... well, how he sounds very similar to Khan. Song is catchy but I can't imagine listening to it all the time. We'll see if it grows on me, though.

Bestial Summoning - Countess of Evil

Huh, this is pretty cool stuff... lots of unhinged and unpredictable riffs flying into the full moon, while the music occasionally nods towards Hellhammer with some mid-paced stomping riffs.
