  1. Septicflesh - "Modern Primitive" (album) Brand new album just released yesterday from these Greek symphonic death metal veterans. Loving it so far!
  2. Anvil - "Pounding the Pavement" (album)
  3. Very cool! I've been blasting a lot of deathcore lately. Lorna Shore just released their newest song yesterday, and I've been playing it repeatedly. I've also been jamming to Black Tongue, The Red Chord, and Shadow of Intent. Highly recommended!
  4. No problem! I enjoy making recommendations and hearing that someone else found it rewarding. That's a great question as to the genre that "St. Anger" would fall into. I guess I've always just thought of it as straight-forward heavy metal and not really being characterized by any specific sub-genres. Not sure, though! What have you been listening to lately?
  5. Awesome, glad to hear you liked it! It doesn't have any guitar solos, but the heaviness is undeniable. You can tell they were trying to reclaim the "metal" title after a couple of albums that didn't amount to much more than radio-friendly rock. I'll always listen to it fairly regularly.
  6. I've always been a fan of "St. Anger", and I'm not ashamed to say it. I enjoy the rawness of the sound and appreciate Metallica making the effort to get back to ferocious heavy metal after the utter embarrassments of "Load" and "Reload".
  7. Lorna Shore - "Immortal" (album)
  8. Judas Priest - "Firepower" (album)
  9. Sodom - "M-16" (album) What a classic!
  10. "City of Evil" by Avenged Sevenfold was one that I hated at first, but now it's one of my favorites.
  11. Shrine of Malice - "Sheol" (album) Crushing blackened deathcore album. Really enjoying it so far.
  12. The Red Coil - "Himalayan Demons" (album)
  13. Diamond Head - "The Coffin Train" (album)
  14. Death Angel - "The Ultra Violence" (album)
  15. Yes, that's right! We did speak about "St. Anger". I really like that album, and I know I'm in the minority with that opinion. After the very disappointing releases of the mid-90's (Load and Reload), it was refreshing to hear Metallica go heavy again. There aren't any guitar solos on "St. Anger", but there are some brutal moments throughout. They were a band trying to find their way again after some terrible flirtation with mainstream, radio-friendly music. Glad you liked it! I'll be flying the flag for "St. Anger" until the day I die. I haven't seen the videos from Wolves in the Throne Room, but I'll have to check them out. Overdrivers are one of my favorites these days! I just love the high-octane sound, and the guitar work is very impressive. I'll be curious to hear what you think of some of those groove metal bands. Happy listening!
  16. Cradle of Filth - "Existence is Futile" (album)
  17. Awesome! I'll have to check out the new Conjurer album. I don't listen to a ton of doom, but when I'm in the mood for it, I really appreciate it deeply. The latest release from Wolves in the Throne Room is absolutely incredible! Might be their best album yet. I'll have to give it a few more spins. As for some other bands I've been jamming lately, it's been a lot of southern-influenced groove metal in the vein of PanterA (my favorite band of all time). Betzefer, Caustic Method, Hell's Fire, Black Inhale, Monster Coyote, and Mourning Tide are all bands I've been rocking out to lately. Let me know what you think of Krokus! I've only just recently discovered them, but I've listened to them almost non-stop lately. Hardbone is a rock 'n roll band I've been loving for about 6 years now, and I have all of their releases. Can't go wrong with any of them. I'd also recommend a band called Overdrivers, if you're not familiar with them already. They're just pure high-energy rock 'n roll - no frills, just straight-ahead steam! Happy listening!
  18. Alter Bridge - "One Day Remains" (album)
  19. The Sign of the Southern Cross - "Of Mountains and Moonshine" (album) Crushing groove metal with a southern twist - very reminiscent of PanterA. Highly recommended!
  20. These are in no particular order but are the 10 thrash albums I'd take with me to a deserted island: Metallica - "Kill 'Em All" Overkill - "The Electric Age" Death Angel - "The Ultra Violence" Slayer - "Reign in Blood" Testament - "The Gathering" Exodus - "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" Megadeth - "Killing is My Business...And Business is Good" Overkill - "Ironbound" Kreator - "Extreme Aggression" Sodom - "Code Red"
  21. 100 Watt Vipers - "Cold Sunday Blues" (album)
  22. Man what a great track. Always love some Dropkick!
  23. Thanks, I appreciate it! It's been great so far. Looking forward to building a nice career there. Glad to hear you have work and are content! That's great that you're enjoying the "Seraphim" album. I had the same thoughts you did about it. It's very relaxing and a bit haunting at the same time. And yes! "Deeper in the Space, Higher in the Ocean" has been a very enjoyable experience. Thanks for the recommendation! It transports me to another world, which is always a welcome characteristic of a new musical discovery. What else have you been diving into lately? I've been on a rock 'n' roll binge, myself. AC/DC, Krokus, and Hardbone have been getting some serious rotation, especially during my workouts.
  24. Doing great! Just started a new job this week, so I haven't been on here in a few days. Hope you're doing well, too! There's an ambient project called How to Disappear Completely, and their 2019 album "Seraphim" has been my go-to lately for that style. I also enjoy some depressive piano-driven atmospheric music by Nights Amore. I believe it's only one person, but I can't swear to it. A lot of those pieces are just haunting.
