Also to anyone slamming on Turbo, you're a pleb. :lol: The first six tracks on that album are stellar punches from front to back.


Rock You All Around The World is the absolute opposite of 'stellar'.

aHA!

p.s. Thanks for the input, Orf. I actually did take listening notes, in the beginning, until this crazed meth burst of babble-isms, which ended, oh, sometime last year of Blow-vid...That said, I think an album requires at least three listens - two, consecutively - with further samplings during midst of writing. But, yeah, the note taking is definitely useful when tackling 500 + word-ers and beyond.

pps So, Soothsayer's long-suffering next release assuages, apparently, unlike its turgid predecessor.

robotiq actually did the Open Season review.

I'm kinda jealous that he beat me to it first, since I was gonna do it after my St. Anger review got re-approved, but it's also good to see Mi'guass get some love, so I guess it's good.

What a great review for Wheel's Preserved in Time (not brine), by newcomer Original (OG?) Sinner.

This paragraph basically nails the Germans' tertiary essence:

"The work's rhythm is an admirable construction of momentum. As the songs progress, it is inevitable to notice how you are being slowly wrapped in the suffocating cobweb of this beast of doom that comes to devour your insides slowly and is keeping you completely sedated with pieces like “After All” or “She Left In Silence ”. You will be completely defenseless before its melodic passages and intoxicating rhythm."

(Can you hear me crying Uncle, right now?)

p.s. To wit, as a mood alternator, I'm about to sample some ample Iron Angel_Emerald Eyes...

That Testimony of the Ancients review definitely had me intrigued. Always loved the first two albums and I think I only heard Testimony once like 10 years ago. It kinda got ingrained in my brain that it was pretty dull (based off that one listen) and I never touched it since that time. Re-listened to it again a few weeks back and it kicks ass! Not quite to Consvming’s level, but very close! Just as good as Malleus.

Felix, I'm really growing a love / hate relationship with you.

Sooner or later I'll slide in here and give I Hear Black some love.

If you do not have enough love for me AND the album, please take your decision for "I Hear Black". I'm sure that I have received more love since birth than this album ever will...

But it will be interesting to read your point of view concerning this zeitgeist whore

I just realized that two reviews for Hidden History of the Human Race were posted today. I don't know about you guys, but Blood Incantation is starting to reach Wintersun levels in terms of review saturation.

Ok, I checked out AC's newest review, and it was actually pretty decent. He's more direct and straight-to-the-point in describing the music and is able to express his opinions more smoothly. Could there be some improvement? Yes, but so far, I'm actually kinda impressed on how much he's improved since leaving.

Speaking of saturated albums, you recently wrote the:
-39th review for Iron Maiden's s/t
-32th review for St-Anger
-33th review for Altars of Madness

:-D

It's a real bummer that the soft cap of 25 is gone. By the way- Penis Metal is only 5 up on Reign in Blood, can we please have a few new people drop some more reviews on that album. I don't want to have to create a bunch of fake accounts to keep the reviews ahead.

I'm sure the mods would gladly derogate from the rules for such a noble cause.

But jokes aside, mine is in the works and I'll wait until RiB gets closer to finish it :-P

Didn't know anything about the 25 limit though. How much time ago was it? I'm guessing way before I started hanging out here.

It was never a hard and fast rule, just sort of an unspoken soft limit. If an album had 25ish reviews, your 26thish one better be damn good or at the very least offer some sort of fresh perspective. It also meant that if an album got to that point then occasionally some mods would prune out the older shittier reviews to keep the standard high. On one hand, this meant that there was a bizarre point in history where an album like Slaughter of the Soul had 20+ reviews that were all astonishingly very good, but on the other hand, I think we all kinda knew it was grossly unfair to prevent people from reviewing purely because they showed up later than everybody else and that it would be untenable as the years pushed on. Pretty sure we explicitly put a stop to that practice before I was modded in 2012 but if not then it was very shortly afterwards. Its only real utility was placating crusty gatekeepers at the expense of locking out the next generation of said gatekeepers.

Definitely some questionable material in that review. You can't say Napalm Death has no riffs and then speak highly of the goregrind Carcass records. It just doesn't make sense.

From the new Harmony Corruption review

Quote:
it's not like anyone serious about the band ever listened to anything after this,


This line was especially funny (sad). It's like he's trying to convince himself that he's one of the elite Napalm Death listeners, not like those posers that listen to more than just the first 2 albums. Somehow he's managed to convince himself that people who own every single Napalm Death album aren't serious about the band.

Yeah that ND review wasn't good. I was initially slightly sympathetic as I feel Harmony Corruption is insanely overrated and I figured a very critical review would balance out the effusive praise of other reviews, but it devolved into gatekeeper-y bullshit. They did cover some decent points that I agree with (the band does sound kinda tired and the production blows).

It's especially funny because one of my unpopular opinions is that post-2000 ND is far superior to 1987-1992 ND. FETO and the first half of Scum are pretty great, of course, but their modern sound has led to one of the more consistent runs of albums in metal, especially for a late-career band.

https://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Sinaya/Maze_of_Madness/708104/hells_unicorn/29518

This review is bothering me a little bit. This a Death Metal band, but the reviewer keeps describing it as Thrash. The entire first paragraph talks about the thrash scene in Brazil, and throughout the whole review he mentions thrash metal one way or another, even calling the song Bath Of Memories "Teutonic Thrash".

I honestly cannot hear any thrash at all on this album. To me this is pure, slower-paced death metal, with maybe some groove influences. Hell, even the band's page lists them as "Thrash/Death", implying the thrash outweights the death, which is certainly not the case. A much more appropriate genre tag would be simply "Death Metal", or at least "Death/Groove".

What do you guys think?

Just to clarify, predecessor essentially means before. Altars was the official debut. There was a album recorded prior to Altars called Abominations of Desolation in '86 but it wasn't released officially until '91 after Blessed to combat bootlegging. Cool album. Also if you like this era of Morbid Angel then check out Nocturnus "The Key" and Nocturnus AD.
You're a pretty good writer dude. I get what you're going for but you didn't nail it. Keep working on it, you'll get there.

Hell, even the band's page lists them as "Thrash/Death", implying the thrash outweights the death, which is certainly not the case. A much more appropriate genre tag would be simply "Death Metal", or at least "Death/Groove".

What do you guys think?


I dropped several references regarding Sinaya's death metal influences, all of which are of a more old school character and are thus adjacent to the thrash comparisons I made, and I also mentioned Entombed as a point of comparison for one of their songs. However, the stylistic template of the band is pretty blatantly thrash metal, almost exactly along the same riffing style as Nervosa (albeit a bit slower and with more of a South Of Heaven-like atmosphere), which mixes the same extreme thrash influences that I noted multiple times. By contrast, the death metal influences are of a more ancillary character, specifically the slightly more guttural vocal approach relative to the Teutonic bands (specifically Kreator and Sodom), and a slightly more dissonant riffing approach. It's not the most frenetic approach to thrash, but calling it groove metal is a stretch, even the implied death 'n' roll influences that I think you're trying to cite are not significant enough for the label you suggest.

You're naturally entitled to your opinion, but that album is not a pure death metal album even when compared to arguably thrash-leaning early examples of the style like Scream Bloody Gore and Season Of The Dead.

Oh now I get it, sometimes I have these translation errors when I write in my native language and translate it to English.

Thanks for the feedback
