  1. Cattle Decapitation ~ Death Atlas
  2. Obsequiae ~ Aria of Vernal Tombs After finding The Palms of Sorrowed Kings so interesting & refreshing I decided to track down the bands earlier albums to see if they held the same kind of creativity & "restrained{" energy. It appears they do...so I find I can do nothing but smile.
  3. How is that working out for you? On Topic: Fighting On by Sepultura
  4. No worries Broski... ? That would be Never Breathe What You Can't See and its also worth checking out.
  5. Well...I would have to go with Against by Sepultura... So Max had left & the band had decided to recruit a new vocalist & carry as on Sepultura...which was the right move for them to make. They ended up recruiting former Alpha Jerk/Outface vocalist Derrick Green & the fact he was an African American wasn't even an issue for me...I was just keen to hear the new album/material. Sepultura was the first metal band I started listening to so I was going to stick with them no matter what (as well as listening to Soulfly of course) and when the album finally dropped it was well...really strange. Now the album starts off strongly with the first 6 tracks all being solid to great...but then things seem to go off the rails somewhat. The album features 5 instrumental tracks (one being a cover song) while two other tracks feature guest vocalists (Reza & Hatred Aside) & while Green does sing on Hatred Aside...he does not on Reza. Meaning out of the 15 songs on Against...Green only sings on 9 of them. WTF?! Even the "B-Sides" recorded around this time featured guest vocalists...which just seem so counterproductive when trying to establish Green as the new "mouthpiece" of the band. This was a terrible start for Green's career in Sepultura & one could argue that while Nation & Roorback weren't terrible...he really didn't start flexing his true vocal talents till Dante XXI & A-Lex. Of course I'm glad he did...because to my ears Sepultura is still one of the best metal bands in the world.
  6. I've been listening to Slipknot since I first heard a rough mix of Eyeless on a free CD attached to an issue of Kerrang! magazine & I'm not afraid to admit I've been a fan ever since. I like the music, the visual presentation & the overall creativity the band has displayed over the course of their career. I understand why many metal fans may have an issue with them...but that's their choice...the same way its my choice to listen to them.
  7. Honestly...try (A) Senile Animal & Hold It In to start with. Which ever one you prefer out of those two will give you a good judge of where to go next. I've found the Melvins have 2 sides...one grounded in a more "standard" heavy riff based approach...while the other is their experimental side. Not all their music will be for everyone...but I think they do have something to offer most fans of heavy & alternative music...you just need to know where to find it. Of course I'm no expert...but I have listened to my fair share of their music...
  8. Universe In A Ball! by The Devin Townsend Project
  9. Lens Of Unrectified Night by Earth
  10. Oh...I see. An injection of "fresh creative blood" has given the Filth a new lease on life. Interesting...
  11. By the way...its a great karaoke song as well. ? Well...sometimes it all depends on the right song reaching the right ears...but you are right in that there is just SO much music out there these days & most people (including myself) are going to be selective with their time & choices.
