Hard Drug's Revised Top 10 Albums Of All Time

I recently realized how truly little I contribute to this site. I don't have the rverbal eloquence to write an album review so I guess I'll be the list guy.rBeen digging some new tunes lately and exploring some new sounds. rFigured I should give my year-old list an.
1System of a Down
Steal This Album!


forever and always. for me, picking a favorite System album is like picking a favorite
child, or raising a pig, giving it a name, then slaughtering it for delicious bacon. but if I
had to choose it would be this one. It's such an excellent blend of the old and new
styles, I never tire of it.
2Intronaut
Prehistoricisms


after discovering Intronaut, they quickly rose to the top of my favorite bands list. they
have the unique, indescribable sound that I'm a sucker for, and the ability to make
me bang my head uncontrollably any time they're playing. I mean, if you need
convincing, just listen to the title track on this album. dat bass, dem drums.
3Neurosis
The Eye of Every Storm


i recently spend an extended amount of time in Bogota, Colombia, and upon my
return in April of this year, I found myself extremely unemployed and extremely cash
poor. my parents agreed to let me do their spring yard work for them and I, being the
king of procrastinators that I am, waited until the very last day to get started, and
naturally, it was raining. I wasn't upset at all though, because Eye of Every Storm was
the perfect album to accompany me. spending all day in the pouring rain, working my
ass off with Scott Kelly and Steve von Till as my companions gave me an entirely new
appreciation for the album. truly beautiful work.
4Queens of the Stone Age
Songs for the Deaf


another new favorite band, QOTSA have a truly intoxicating sound that I can't help
but sing along to. I recently did some exploring into their back log and found even
more exemplary musicianship, and their newest ablum rock my socks straight off, but
none can quite top Songs for the Deaf. maybe it's just the nostalgia factor, bringing
me back to my many long winter road trips from Orlando back to my home in Canton,
Ohio, watching the snow gradually appear on the ground as if Josh Homme had sung
it into existence himself. In fact, anything the Mr. Homme has his hand in is bound to
be the pinnacle of excellence.
5Every Time I Die
The Big Dirty


I feel like I have a lot of anger pent up deep inside of me, and ETID helps me bring it
out with their chaotic walls of music without me actually stabbing anybody. I
absolutely love the sheer brutality of their earlier work, but Big Dirty has the perfect
blend of angry shouting and sing-along-itude for me.
6Between the Buried and Me
Colors


another album that I can sing along to one minute, then make me want to punch the
nearest person in the next. seems to be a theme with me.
7Bloodbath
Nightmares Made Flesh


I do drugs and sacrifice virgins to the dark lord while I listen to this album. *inserts

8Opeth
Watershed


another nostalgia factor album. i must admit, from a musical and technical standpoint,
there are much, much better Opeth albums out there. but this one brings me back to
a troubled time in my late teens, first discovering the wonders of metal. call me crazy,
but I won't listen to this album unless it's at least October for maximum feels.
9Fair to Midland
Arrows and Anchors


an early dig from my old musical tastes that withstood the test of time. FTM have an
infectious sound with incomprehensible lyrics that still make you want to sing along, or
at least match the noises. melodic enough to be enjoyed by a wide audience yet high-
energy enough to make me want to punch-dance my way through a crowded
shopping mall. wow this is a more common theme with me than i thought.
10Mastodon
Remission


MOTHER *FUCKING* PUNCHER
CRUSHER
DESTROYER
