All That Remains The Order of Things
This is an embarrassingly bland album and just a terrible work of music in general. If not for the heavier parts of closer "Criticism and Self-realization" and an occasional so so guitar solo this would be an instant 1. Even that almost wasn't enough to deter me from rating this shit heap the 1 star when I heard the mega bitchfest that is "Tru-Kvlt-Metal".
Miss May I Rise of the Lion
Sylosis Dormant Heart
On Dormant Heart, Sylosis create an album that expertly combines the brutality of underground more extreme metal with the accessibility of some mainstream elements. This makes Dormant Heart a fun and immediately rewarding listen. They balance these influences well enough to make Dormant Heart and engaging listen all the way through. Definitely a good album to properly bridge the gap for metal fans who haven't quite made the transition to more brutal sounds. Best songs: Leach, Harm, and To Build a Tomb
Slayer Reign in Blood
This is just a fucking classic. On Reign in Blood Slayer immediately achieve legendary status with an album that as a cohesive unit is basically unfuckwithable. Separate the songs don't possess quite the same punch but with a run time of 30 minutes there's no way you won't keep coming back again and again for the full album. Seriously, the road map for extreme speed driven music was laid down effortlessly on this album. Best tracks: Angel of Death, Criminally Insane, Raining Blood
The Human Abstract Midheaven
Easily one of the most pretentious things I've ever listened to. There are certain ways to combine metal and alt rock...this is definitely not it. Sounds like Dillinger had an autistic kid with Incubus and not the savant kind. The vocalist must've thought he was Mike Patton before going in to record this, Patton would eat this little shit for breakfast. ...Okay I'm done with the insults. But seriously the vocalist practically single handedly ruined this album.
Darkest Era Severance
This album came as quite a surprise to me, since I had always written these guys off as being a second rate stuck in the confines of typical folk and heavy metal tropes. Well, as of Severance I can say that these Ire landers are truly running wild within these parameters. The songs found on this release are epic yet not cheesy and pay enough tribute to the classic purveyors of this cult heavy metal sound while still being memorable. This album doesn?t stray at all from this formula though however said formula epic it may be. This limits the albums scope a little bit shackling it to this top #25 spot. Still this release is an epic emotiona
Fallujah The Flesh Prevails
Last year with the release of their EP ?Nomadic?, Fallujah seemed poised to take technical death metal and even death metal in general into a new daring direction with beautifully atmospheric and emotionally impactful music. I guess on Flesh Prevails they deliver on this initial promise, but not without a few bugs in the machine. The main thing that held this album back from being a master work would have to be the overly compact production which really goes against what Fallujah were going for with this album. Everything feels tethered to earth instead of free to roam the soundscape as it should. The album does drag on a couple of tracks

  • DirtyDan Yeah there really isn't such thing as a bad Amon Amarth song. They are probably the most consistently awesome band out there.
