    The Fallen Ones

    Whoa, Mindy and Thrashman! Nice to see you both, and nice post @MacabreEternal. I definitely get nostalgic about the community as it stood a few years ago. I also understand not having the time, I've had precious little of it myself lately and have actually gotten off of FB to try and get my head back on straight.

    MacabreEternal's Top 10 BM Albums 2018

    The end of the year. My children look forward to Christmas, I look forward to Top 10 Lists. Nice list here. I'm not going to comment on individual albums because there may or may not be a couple appearing on my Top 10 of 2018 list, but you have given me a couple of names that I've missed this year and so will check out. Bold choice for number one! Good stuff.

    Fantastic write-up, Sir...also "I was all over 'Our Father' like an STD on anyone of Motley Crue's genitalia during the 80's" is pure fuckin gold

    Obsequiae - The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings

    Cant get enough of this one. Slightly more focussed sound (production -wise) than the last? The epic flowing melodies get me every time. This album would be perfect even as an instrumental release.

    Immortal Bird "Thrive on Neglect"

    Nice review. It's been quite a while since I played their debut and I kind of lost touch with their progress, but I'll have to check this out.

    The Fallen Ones

    Man, it feels like I haven't logged in in forever. I had a pretty serious bout with depression, and for the longest time I didn't even find it fun to listen to music anymore. I'm on an upswing now, though. I'm in a new death metal band and we've got a backyard gig coming up, I'll be 20 soon, and things are looking okay, which is more than I could ask for. Going to post some stuff that helped get me back on the extreme metal track.

    The Fallen Ones

    Hey @Thrashman @mindy6158, nice to see you both around. The list was a sad one to write and I think the remaining regulars all hark for a time when we had some of the more familiar faces around. Whilst this post was not intended to be a lure to get people posting again it is great to see you - however fleeting this may be - and stay safe out there!

    Overkill "The Wings of War"

    When you reviewed Candlemass and The Door of Doom, you reviewed the last album I purchased a copy of, and here you review the last album I down loaded on Spotify. If you had reviewed Manilla Road and Out of the Abyss, we would be right in line, but you would never have done that, since unlike me, you are smart enough not to be duped by spotify into thinking that came out in 2018. I've been listening to that downloaded on Spotify and believing it to be Mr Shelton's swan song like a ne culturne asshole might. I see now it came out in 2005 and is a compilation to boot, so here you have my confessional. As for the Wings of War, I think it's awesome, especially the drumming you mention. "Batshitcrazy" is my favorite cut. I like to listen to Overkill when I drive, but it might not help.

    Candlemass "The Door to Doom"

    Well I think Death Magic Doom is even better than Tails of Creation. But more to the point when Psalms for the Dead Came out billed as their final album, I was really distraught, as I basically only really liked the song "Time Is Black" and felt sorry they would end with such a poor album, and I didn't buy it, So I like this one just fine, and I bough it and The House of Doom, and The EP before that, whatever it's called (the internet remembers it as Death Thy Lover, so there you have it) the point is Candlemass has my attention. Thanks for giving them your attention with a review. Your taste remains impeccable. I wish you had mentioned the cover art in the review, as it is beautiful, especially the black and white photo of an open hearse on the inside, which took my breath away when I opened the thing. Maybe I'm posting a spoiler, sorry if so.

    Yes, I think you have recommended it a couple of times. Got further individual entries planned for both Horna and Behexen but thought the split would be a great place to start.

    What a great review! I am sure I mentioned this split to you ages ago, anyway, glad you feel it! It is really nice.

    MacabreEternal's Top 10 BM Albums 2018

    The Varathron sounded a lot less sinister (the one time I heard part of it) than the mighty album they released before it whose name escapes me. Edit: ‘Untrodden Corridors of Hades’. What an amazing album. The new one sounded thin and incomplete to my ears, as if it needed a rhythm guitar or something. I need to check it out again I guess. 100 million True Beliefs can’t be wrong.

    Varathron very unlucky to miss out! Massive horns-up to the Immortal, Craft and Winterfylleth releases. 1914's "The Blind Leading the Blind" also a great listen.

    Winterfylleth "The Hallowing of Heirdom"

    Thanks I will add it to my list.

    Judas Priest "Firepower"

    The fact that this manages to be both quite consistent and their best work since 1990 at the same time given the length is rather incredible. If they retire with this, I'd be perfectly OK with that.

    Portal "ION"

    One of the great emperor's new clothes bands when it comes to their live shows if you ask me. I've seen them many times in Australia and the sound is literally a wall of noise with no discernible riffs or even notes. Just some guy with a clock around his neck gurning at the audience for 40 minutes while randoms create fuzz on their instruments. Really preposterous stuff.

    Summoning "With Doom We Come"

    Firstly, I don't play Warhammer thankyouverymuch! Secondly, I haven't heard this yet but I'll definitely check it out. I'll probably end up buying it, listening to it once then putting it in the collection with the other Summoning albums to be pulled out again every 12 months or so when the mood is perfect for it. With the new Norwegian one-man-band Eldamar putting out such beautiful and hypnotic Tolkien music, Summoning need to keep the quality if they're going to keep up with the new kids on the block.

    Cannibal Corpse "Red Before Black"

    I think that Cannibal Corpse has been going through the motions for quite a while now. I can certainly see their influence but I tend to err towards other kinds of death metal that differ from Cannibal Corpse's more straight-forward (and somewhat stagnant) approach. Great review though.

    Bell Witch "Mirror Reaper"

    I've been really curious about this since you mentioned it in the 'Listening..' thread, I will have to check it out. Yeh the artwork is really nice..I always enjoy reading your reviews.
