|10 Quality Pieces Of Metal|
Here listed are 10 examples of the greatness that can be found if you look hard enough.
the keyboard solo in "mistress of the bleeding sorrow". that's all i have to say
death + insanity = autopsy. autopsy + steve digiorgio = one of the best releases of all time. that wall of
bass is simply crushing.
In the Sign of the Ravens
Redefined Viking Metal
Defined Viking Metal
Det Som Engang Var
The most varied burzum release that I've heard. very cool instrumentals, in general just good songwriting
Necroticism:Descanting The Insalubrious
One of the first good progressive death metal releases. first and last tracks are the best, although
everything on here is just super. some very cool solos and leads on this one.
After defining the genre, Chuck took it to new hights and redefined it here
|3||At the Gates|
Gardens of Grief
groundbreaking EP, this took the "sweden sound" to a new level, entering dark progressive territory. the
next two releases are also phenomenal, and then sadly Alf left the band.
very solid release with some very interesting riffs.
In the Embrace of Evil
Simultaneously defines brutal, extreme, heavy, black, deadly, progressive, and technical. even as a
compilation album, it stands stronger than most bands' full releases.
|needs more swords and knives.|
|almost all these are awesome. im really looking forward to the new Autopsy EP|
|Agreed. Especially with 1.|
|Good stuff. |
|Necroticism isn't prog death, it just has relatively long songs. Amazing album, though.|
|eh, i have to disagree santa. to me, there are 2 meanings of the word "progressive", one would be the way a band like Death or The Beatles literally progressed from album to album and eventually reached a new sound entirely different from where they started, and the second would be describing songwriting, a song which actually progresses within itself. such as on a song like inpropagation, from that echoing riff in the beginning to the drumroll which brings you into that first chaotic riff and then the time change into the constantly changing verse pattern, into the keyboard-laden slow, atmospheric part.... that's progressive songwriting, at least to me. stuff like that certainly wasn't done a lot in death metal before 1991. it doesnt have to sound like opeth or rush or yes or king crimson to be "progressive", it just has to "make progress"... again though, thats just my opinion|
|pretty sick list right here....|
|so i've heard, but i don't own it yet. it's on the to do list. i do know that it's gonna be hard to top impending dread, and i doubt mental has better bass than severed. hopefully the new EP/album will be sick as well|
