favorite bands
Lost Legacy In the Name of Freedom
Huge fans of bands like Metal Church and Vicious Rumors will probably enjoy this one. I found it a bit unspectacular and boring, even though there are some nice riffs here and there and a couple of catchy vocal lines.
Myrkur Folkesange
This one feels like a trip to the great outdoors, over tall mountains, frosty lakes, and misty forests. The major protagonist here is Amalie Bruun and her beautiful voice that shines like the Northern Lights. More importantly, the album doesn't sound forced, but rather natural and organic.
Dexter Ward III
If you love Iron Maiden, Dio, Manowar, and Axel Rudi Pell, then this is your jam. Songs about metal, dragons, wizards make this a very enjoyable listen, and I only found the vocals slightly underwhelming.
Biff Byford School Of Hard Knocks
Compared with other legendary elder statesmen who still release music, this screams artistic value. School Of Hard Knocks, for the most part, could have been a Saxon album but Biff decided that it's time to put out his first solo LP. Why? Because he can and because with Lemmy he's the most honest dude around.
Tales of Medusa The Fatal Wounding Gaze
This is one of those albums that gained a legendary underground status partly because it's really hard to find in physical form and nothing is known about this band, besides that they're from Canada. Apart from that, it contains some solid arcane epic doom with great instrumentation and so and so vocals.
Shadowkiller Dark Awakening
As someone who enjoyed the band's previous album, this one sounds very safe, stale and unspectacular. There's no denying that the vocals are pretty good and that there are some nice riffs here and there, but, overall, the songwriting is very samey which leads to a linear experience.
Smoulder Dream Quest Ends
Smoulder prove again that they have improved significantly from their debut EP and have found their sound. Two new songs tha could have easily been included on the band's LP and a great cover of Manilla Road's "Cage of Mirrors".

  • OmairSh I'm good man, figuring what to do with my quarantine time :D. What about you? So my list is actually a list of Youtube videos, so individual songs performed live for the most part, not the entire albums that are on the list. Some moody stuff if you're interested :-)

  • garas Oh yeahhh, it was one of the best courses ever! The lecturer was an old philosopher professor, and the passion in his lectures is undescribable... it was fantastic, and I believe he taught me to fully appreciate the music of the '60s. (But my true obsession is still black metal, haha!) "People on here don't love Eric Clapton a lot" Then they're just simply wrong, LOL!

  • garas Thanks man, Sabotage really surprised me how much I loved it! And I agree, Rory was iiiincredibly talented! Last year I studied rock'n'roll history from the '60s at the uni, that's where I heard his music for the very first time. And probs he was my favourite. (Next to Clapton, ofc.)
