  1. Shredhead - "Live Unholy" Shredhead - "I Saw You Burn" Great groove metal with touches of thrash sprinkled in throughout!
  2. Yep, that's absolutely true! Karl Sanders is one of my favorite musicians in all of heavy metal. I've been listening to Nile since my early high school years, and they've provided lots of great memories for me through the years. They're in my top 3 favorite death metal bands, along with Hate Eternal and Cannibal Corpse.
  3. Fantastic choice! I enjoy all of Nile's material, but those early albums especially had a ferocity and creativity about them. "Annihilation of the Wicked" is my favorite Nile album, but "Black Seeds of Vengeance" and "In Their Darkened Shrines" are up near the top of the list as well!
  4. You got it right, Mr. GG! Guilty as charged! I try and belt out the notes with Ralf Scheepers when I'm blasting Primal Fear in the car on the way to work - which I do quite often - or with Joacim Cans when I have HammerFall blaring (which again, I do often). I think the pipes are getting better!
  5. "If they would have kept Johan on from the first album this could have been in contention for their best album. I know there are some people who do actually prefer Messiah, but that's just crazy talk. Still a great album obviously, but it has to stand behind Epicus." I can completely understand where you're coming from, Mr. GG! I enjoy both singers equally, so it's a win-win for me as a huge fan! The debut is absolutely incredible. I'd have it ranked #3 in the catalog, only behind my #2 "Nightfall", and my top Candlemass album, "Ancient Dreams". Really psyched to have Johan back in the band, though! "The Door to Doom" and "Sweet Evil Sun" would both rank in the top half of the discography for me. "EDM is the better album for sure. I almost can't compare Candlemass with Marcolin to Candlemass with Johan. They just feel like two different bands. Such a shame they weren't able to get back in contact with Johan again until much later, after the failed experiment with Rob Lowe. I'm also one of those weirdos who thinks the self-titled with Marconlin is worthy of standing with their classics even if Marcolin was kind of a grouchy dough-boy by that point." The self-titled album is another great release! It's moved a bit down my list since it first came out, but only because the whole catalog is so good. The Robert Lowe era is fantastic to my ears. "King of the Grey Islands" is in my top 5 Candlemass albums. His voice is perfect for the doom sound. Out of curiosity, what was it about the Lowe era that you disliked?
  6. V8 Wankers - "Blown Action Rock" Killer speedy hard rock 'n' roll. Fantastic for the gym. Before the Damned - "Unanimosity" Thick, heavy groove metal - exactly up my alley. Shotgun Sludge - "Arrest Me" (song) Wish these Russian sludge dudes had put out more material.
  7. Candlemass - "Nightfall" Absolute perfection. Nothing more can be said of this epic doom classic. Methane - "The Devil's Own" Solid groove metal with some thrash-y parts thrown in.
  8. Black Summer Rain - "The Tide" Love this one! Solid southern/groove metal, my favorite style, hands down. Got some PanterA in their sound, which automatically makes the sound great to my ears!
  9. No problems here at all, my friend! I've posted so much lately about KK's Priest, Primal Fear, and HammerFall, I'm sure some folks are getting weary of it. But I just can't help it! Fantastic choice, by the way! Dark Angel rules.
  10. Oh, no need to apologize whatsoever, my metal friend! I apologize if my comment gave the impression of boredom, or anything else of the sort! Feel free to post links to anything you're listening to, as we're all free to do! As anyone who comes on here regularly will attest, I often mention the same bands or albums numerous times as I'm listening. I was simply saying I'm excited to check out Cosmic Jaguar and am thankful for the recommendation!
  11. Okay, I'm convinced! I've seen several posts about this Cosmic Jaguar album, so I'm checking it out today!
  12. "Take a Look in the Mirror" is my favorite Korn album! Just heavy and aggressive all the way through. Raider - "Guardian of the Fire" Good grief what a fantastic album. It's unmistakably thrash but with an obvious leaning toward death metal. Ravager - "Thrashletics" Another great listen. KK's Priest - "The Sinner Rides Again" Can't remember if this is my 12th or 13th time listening through this album in its entirety, but my goodness, I love it so much. Candlemass - "King of the Grey Islands" My favorite album of the Robert Lowe era. All 3 of those albums are really good, but this one is exceptional. "Destroyer" is an absolutely crushing tune. It literally destroys all in its path. "Clearsight" and "Embracing the Styx" are phenomenal as well. Can't ever have too much Candlemass in my life!
  13. Accuser - "Repent" Accuser - "The Mastery" Just about an album and a half left to go until I finish my journey through the entire catalog, and these guys will get numerous future listens!
  14. That is one incredible list of albums there! Can't go remotely wrong with any of those legendary picks!
  15. Accuser - "Dependent Domination" Accuser - "Diabolic" Accuser - "The Forlorn Divide" Such an underrated thrash band. Listened through 9 of the 12 albums this past week, and each one has been uniquely good. They're certainly in my Teutonic 4!
