| ||Cannibal Corpse A Skeletal Domain|
I only like the CC albums from 2006 forward and this is another good one. Of the four, this is probably the darkest, most technical and most varied. There's also a slight thrash feel on a lot of the riffs that I really like. Also, some of band's best solos are on here... the production on this is powerful and in-your-face, too
| ||The Haunted Exit Wounds|
The Haunted get their original singer back and go back to their roots. Consistent album without any filler. Great for the gym.

I'm pleasantly surprised. She has kind of returned to what made her good in the first place -- quirky french pop. Fuck yeah.
| ||Celldweller 10 Year Anniversary Edition Instrumentals|
It's good mainstream industrial rock, but just not the same without vocals.
| ||Celldweller Blackstar Act Two: Awakening|
It's an instrumental soundtrack... the music isn't bad, but it isn't really up to Celldweller levels either.
| ||Nero Di Marte Nero Di Marte||3.4|
| ||Opeth Pale Communion|
It's better than the previous release, but that one was a train wreck of ideas. At no point did I ever think this album was terrible, but there was a never a 'holy shit, that's cool' moment either. The album just lacks substance... it kind of just floats by.
| ||Botanist VI: Flora|
Very good stuff. It kind of reminds me more of a faster paced post rock than black metal, but it's still good. I just can't stay engaged to the songs for very long... something is lacking...
