Barathrum Legions of Perkele
barathrum's best, a blackened spirited groovefest birthed as the trv successor to venom and bathory
Bathory Katalog
i swear some people have no idea what a compilation album is, and this one is very special at that, originally meant as a promotional sampler not for commercial release but later pressed for the public, this album features a champion from each of bathory's ten LPs to this date, and hearing black mark's/quorthon's personal picks to show in business deals is an intimate glimpse into the background operation of an extreme metal record company
Bathory Under the Sign of the Black Mark
quorthon inducts symphonics, later to reach their peak in such as emperor, and slow tempo atmospheric epics, which he himself would master on the nordland albums, into the trv kvlt. the whole album is pure win but call from the grave, enter the eternal fire, and 13 candles, the slow tempo epics, really steal the show
Bathory Blood Fire Death
blazing 10k horsepower riffs galloping across blood flooded fields and mountains of slain in every quarter
Bathory Nordland I
the first edition of quorthon's absolute masterpiece, every track is an epic folk treasure

listening to nordlands i and ii one after the other is the aural scandinavian equivalent of reading the iliad and odyssey back to back. never has a double album been more epic

4.0 excellent
1914 Where Fear and Weapons Meet
pretty epic blackened death/doom. a highlight in tread but nothing bad at all. just the vox aren't the greatest and a deeper more powerful growl would have suited this better
Absu The Temples of Offal
absulutely intense osdm
Aephanemer A Dream Of Wilderness
melodic death metal unlike any other, atmospheric and intense, composed with constant rhythmic mindfulness, wicked french lady vox throughout with some regretfully underused cleans, aephanemer seek to take you on an unforgettable adventure. not a single off kilter track, resounding in an even more amped up climax on the last course of the album. bonus old french song cover is amazing, and total french lyric le rideau de la meduse is even better than the album english version. wish they had a couple more tracks in full french
Aephanemer Prokopton
these francophones let it go like nothing else, like early equilibrium went full melodeath instead of black folk, this is some zany shit

Amon Amarth The Avenger
easily the best of their early albums. raw, much more deathy mdm with every member really into performing their part. aa at their freshest and most eager. north sea storm's gotta be their best song ever and it's a hard tie between this and twilight as their best album overall
Amorphis Skyforger
peak morphis forging the sky indeed

songs from their best album
Amorphis From the Heaven of My Heart
moar tracks from their masterpiece album
Ancestor (FIN) With No Strings Attached
as great as kalmah would become they could just as easily have had a career in osdm

starts weak but builds up succinctly by the middle, weaker vox but they end up going with it. more prog than i usually care for but integrated well, those girly highs used a couple times worth a good o.O

trv christian black metal every track is win. so much passion in his vox, christian bm rulz

a masterpiece in it's own right, love this lively concerto
Antonio Vivaldi Lute Concerto in D Major RV 93
amazing allegros unfortunately attached to a dismal largo
Antonio Vivaldi Mandolin Concerto in C major, RV 425
i is one of my most favourite classical pieces of all time, so much energy and joy. ii is this subtle, furtive shadow that grips over time, finally iii brings back a light thrush that complements i in a more playful, less assertive fashion
Antonio Vivaldi Violin Concerto in A Minor, Op. 3 No. 6 RV 356
i is majestic, ii is sombre filler, iii a simple unhinged attack
Antropofagus Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration
some really damn good bdm
Anubis (INDO) Perpetual Darkness Through the Global Eclipse
can only find track 1 bc trying to search their name with that track 2 title is impossible, nevertheless amateur raw blasymph and it is pure win and they should have kept going

raw pure win black symph
Avatar (BEL) Promo 98
great alt versions of a couple tracks on their late release 2nd album
Bal-Sagoth Atlantis Ascendant
album starts as tolerably cheesy cringe (the good kind), but from star-maps onwards builds into a trv melodic/power bm feast. dreamer in the catacombs to end is a solid slab of epic bm adjacent win

Bathory Bathory
Bathory The Return of the Darkness and Evil
Bathory Requiem
slightly charred extremely dirty thrash, whole album goes ahrd m/
Bathory Blood on Ice
like the title suggests this album is a slow accumulative snowfall building up into a great glacier, shredding its enemies in half like so many vulnerable titanics
Bathory Hammerheart
quorthon gets experimental and goes full out folk allowing the rising trv kvlt to have their fill of his creation. not everything is fleshed out but baptize in fire and ice and especially one rode to asa bay are immortal masterpieces
Bathory In Memory of Quorthon
the man, the myth, the legend, this is a post-humous series compilation of assorted bathory bests, collecting tracks from amongst all quorthon's discography including a few of his solo pieces and tribute tracks by his sister
Bathory Jubileum Volume I
a new epic instrumental + 3 venomy thrash tracks, sacrifice having been on the first scandinavian metal attack split and you dont move me being one of bathory's earliest recordings from 1983, then a selection of some of bathory's finest distinguishing the atmosphere of all previous releases
Bathory Jubileum Volume II
burnin leather is a great self-titled era type track, die in fire is blackened motorhead/venom worship, otherwise a great highlight selection from bathory's first 6 albums
Bathory Jubileum Volume III
a heavy requiem and octagon compilation (which rule) with an early unpolished track in satan my master and a clear transition from the satanic black metal themes to viking metal in nomine satanas, using satan lyrics but with the backtrack to what would become bond of blood/twilight of the gods title, resolution greed is a mid tempo thrash leftover from the requiem/octagon era, witchcraft is a crusty blackened thrash track from self titled era, valhalla backvoc/multitrack sample is exactly what it says, genocide is another great previously unreleased mid tempo req/oct type track, and a few great tracks from blood on ice
Bathory In Memory of Quorthon Volume I
the first in a post-humous series compilation of assorted bathory bests, in memory of quorthon collects tracks from amongst all quorthon's discography including a few of his solo pieces. this volume includes the punky ive had it coming, a sex pistols god save the queen cover, and a not so exciting finisher in boy
Bathory In Memory of Quorthon Volume III
def the weirdest collection of all things quorthon. some amazing classics like woman of dark desires and sea wolf, but then 2 kiss covers and the beatles wut? also a bleh track from his 2nd solo album and finally a couple tracks done with his sister on vox who has quite a lovely voice consecrating her brother's death as well as creating bathory's first gothic metal
Batushka Litourgiya
the chanting except on istina is annoying but good bm
Batushka Raskol
excellent blend of krallicey riffs n trad black + suitable chanting

Behemoth And the Forests Dream Eternally
dark forest dreams including a title track to sventevith, bathory worship, and a look into the ancient occult vastlands
Behemoth Grom
beware the behemoth's thunder, for it is mighty, and behold the allures of the man and maiden in the stormclouds awaiting those of uneven fate
Beherit Engram
first half is some hawt rock n roll krallice but then turns into a completely different album (for the better?) by throwing on some black doom

Brimstone Carving a Crimson Career
powerdeath like a more epic arghoslent, trv spirit metal in its most primal form
Burzum Aske
an elevated production does nothing but help varg as the songs vastly improve with a fortified and complete trv version of sad spirit
Burzum Burzum
Burzum Belus
while not reaching the heights of his original kvlt releases, varg brings the cathartic darkness of burzum into the 21st millenium as he himself sees the light of day once again
Burzum Et Hvitt Lys Over Skogen
how could this be left out? the best thing burzum has ever done, trv riffs, trv 'sphere

Carathis The Amethyst Fortress
very fun meloblack ep
Catamenia Eternal Winter's Prophecy
a wintry light meloblack wolfy win highlight in anubis
Catamenia Eskhata
a very icily smooth album, perfect production and yet a more bm veneer than on any previous. every track is great but storm, rain of blood, landscape, and title stand out
Catamenia Chaos Born
the first two tracks trump anything theyve done before, immaculate blackened melodeath, but onwards is a mixed tale ending on a high note, as stated highlights in kuolon tanssi and calm before the storm
Ceremonial Oath Lost Name of God
gud trv melodeath demo
Children of Bodom Hatebreeder
Warheart 4.5; Silent Night 3.5; Title 3.5; Razors 3; Towards Dead End 4.5; Black Widow 3; Wrath 3.5; Band Track easy 5; Downfall 4.5. Aces high cover is also bomb af

Children of Bodom Are You Dead Yet?
Living Dead Beat 5 such a good song to walk to; Title 4.5 dat introspective poetry; Peace 4 dat roman adage; Punch 3.5 weirdest ballad but ok; In Your Face 55555555 radio edit is *bleeping* hilarious; Next In Line 2.5 one of their shittiest songs; Bastards 4 obnoxiously good; Trashed 4 also obnoxiously good; Fall 3.5 some of the most retarded lyrics alexi's ever spewed but who fuckin cares

Children of Bodom Trashed, Lost & Strungout
knuckleduster is pure win, n bed of nails n beautiful are among their best covers, title is a 3.5
Children of Bodom Tokyo Warhearts
best live album ever. band of 19 year old bros 4 lyfe suddenly finding themselves so successful as to travel halfway across the world to go crazy n just unleash their raw energetic party on the pacific island masses. keys/guitar duel is great. alexi still has a thick finnish accent lmao
Children of Bodom Skeleton in the Coffin
aces high is one of their best ever covers, n naturally they make war n hypnosis sound so much better than their originals
Children of Bodom A Chapter Called COB - The Final Show
bodoms last ever show. good variety of tracks amongst their whole discography tho alexi sounds a bit rusty. highlights in angels dont kill, needled 24/7, hate me, and downfall KIITOS JA RIP ALEXI LAIHO
Cirith Ungol The Orange Album (demo)
cirith is the best
Coroner Mental Vortex
smooth transitions and slow sections, thrashy melodies. main riffs of son of lilith almost like blooddrunk. don't care for semtex. sirens is boring. metamorphosis pretty cool riffage and damn dat solo. pale sister's groovy af. about life is a pretty cool mdm song. gonna pretend the beatles cover isnt there
Countess The Gospel of the Horned One
simple but trv classic bm
Countess Banners of Blood
2021 but this sounds like a fresh 1998 release, blackened cirith ungol with some bathory and plenty of barathrum excellent shit
Cradle of Filth Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phalluste
a great ep/album despite it only existing as a deal to get out of a shoddy contract, highlight in queen of winter
Cradle of Filth Midian
cof's most concrete album since they debuted, saffron's curse is an improved and solidified barthory aria, followed by runners in death magick and amor, typified by ghost, ending justifiably with veil from grace and tortured soul
Cradle of Filth Nymphetamine
cradles 2nd best album featuring gilded cunt, title tracks, coffin fodder, secret, swansong, and mother of abominations. its definitely too long and a lot of passages are pure filler but the good outweighs the bad
Cradle of Filth Lovecraft & Witch Hearts
one of the best album arts ever, featuring a ton of their best bangers at this point with a slight remix here and there, and a handful of cool covers
Crimson Moonlight Veil of Remembrance
bounces all over the place in the extreme genres (as well as an embarrassing amount of mccore on embraced not to mention several worthless tech/prog sections on echoes) but overall holds strong to its blackened death/death/black/melodic death/melodic black frame
Crimson Moonlight Eternal Emperor
excellent addition to the emperor (heh) and dimmu borgir tradition
Crystal Abyss First Born Snow
well done russian blasymph
Crystal Abyss Visions of the Past
a couple pure win raw black symphos
Crystal Abyss Sageness Fallen
a trv version of cof
Crystal Abyss Word of the Darkest Ages

et nobiscum satanas est
Dark Mirror ov Tragedy The Lunatic Chapters of Heavenly Creatures
overloaded extra symphy korean blasymph highlights in burning mirror and luminos dullness
Darkthrone Cromlech
if only this had served as a cromlech, keeping the band steady in a great monument of dm's might. alas, they abandoned their heritage to mock the trv north
Dawn Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)
knell and falcula are soul piercing affairs, while the rest keep up the momentum though unfortunately never surpassing it again
Dawn Demo 1
pure win os deathy doomy mdm with fukkin mighty vox

the last trv death. solid classic osdm
Death Angel The Ultra-Violence
few are as invigorated by the thrash god as the DEATH ANGEL
Decapitated Winds of Creation

Der Weg Einer Freiheit Der Weg Einer Freiheit
quality modern bm. not much to complain about it's just good
Derdian New Era Pt. 1
an amazing neoclassical power metal album successfully soaring like icarus before plummeting on ironically enough where i can fly and landing in the crystal lake, but soaring once again towards the safety of its cage of light
Destroyer 666 Wildfire
the 666 stands for trv metal, trv thrash, trv black
Destruction Diabolical
holy damn balls was not expecting such a tight m/ thrash album 40 years into their career cut your zombie hand off and m/ with him indeed
Diabolical Fullmoon Unholy Pagan War - Promo Rehearsal
synthbeast bm with all of the old school influences
Dimmu Borgir Stormblåst
dimmy build on the ideas of tid to make a mighty storm blast of riffs, keys, n synths. the prod is still light, but this time it goes with the music and adds atmosphere rather than being a matter of technicality
Dimmu Borgir Spiritual Black Dimensions
a weakened version of enthrone, adding a lighter tone, more flippant keys, and random clean vox a la cradle. still a solid album with peak moments on every track save arcane lifeforce
Dimmu Borgir Godless Savage Garden
Dismember Like an Ever Flowing Stream
an everflowing stream...of RIFFS
Dismember Reborn in Blasphemy
behold the birth of melodeath along with its brother enfeebled earth! solid deathy melodic death metal with above demo quality

a meloblack classic that trades sheer intensity for crystal riffs and light atmosphere
DragonForce Inhuman Rampage
Dragonlord Rapture
a more mature and streamlined cof, RAWR goes the dragonlord!
Dwarrowdelf Maedhros
a magical there and back again masterpiece
Edenbridge Shine
another solid album, only a few tracks that dont bang as ahrd as the rest. move along and wild chase are mightiest among the mighty
Edenbridge Arcana
full of subtle but heavy prettinesses. a lot of air supply, a few tracks seem directly inspired by a part of your world, highlights in starlight reverie, palace, color my sky, whisper of the ages, suspiria, and winter winds
Edenbridge Sunrise In Eden (Gandalf Mix)
a weaker mix emphasizing sabine's vocals. still very beautiful, but the final release is more impactful
Eluveitie Slania
trv fun folk tunes even if the same melody is used as a base for half the tracks m/
Eluveitie Spirit
always forget how good this album is. raw, a little bmy, starts good and continually crescendos into better and better tracks, this is mdm style folk at its best
Elysion Silent Scream
dont even care, this band hits the gothic niche precisely. a metal evanescence, they combine simple rock-metal song structures with an unapologetically adolescent melancholy, and it hits the spot, just right there
Emperor Reverence
loss & curse is a masterpiece from the upcoming welkin, longing spirit is an old reworked awkwardity, and opus a satan is an imperial burzum
Ensiferum Ensiferum
the king and progenitor of melodic death folk metal m/
Enslaved Vikingligr Veldi
the most badass darkest adventure metal
Enslaved Blodhemn
blood revenge avenged

awesome death'd rockin riffs unlike anyone has ever metal'd, wreckage wrecks me ahrd
Epica The Classical Conspiracy
pretty good renditions of some of the most well known classical/score pieces save imperial march bc that sucks ass no matter the context, quietus, phantom agony, sancta terra, and consign to oblivion on the album side are such win omg dude
Equilibrium Turis Fratyr
amazing breakout album churning everything that would later become the masterpiece that is sagas
Erlosung Christmas Ist Krieg
by far the most beautiful, artistic, and trv christmas spirit represented on an album i have ever witnessed and i am not being ironic in the slightest
Eternal Autumn The Storm
undeniably solid melodeath for the enlightened
Eternal Autumn From the Eastern Forest
excellent raging melodeath with symphy elements highlight in the epic eternity of vengeance pt 2
Eucharist I Am the Void
what a left field album, 25 years later and going almost full on modern bm. infinitely better than the crap they dished out in the 90s, a couple tracks subtly hearken to their roots (as does the title perhaps), while the tt makes use of some tasteful prog
Eucharist Shadows
pure win blackened melodeath track
Evoking Winds Towards Homestead
black metal amorphis is win, carol of the bells cover is lolz
Exodus Pleasures of the Flesh
pleasures of the thrash

FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers: NES Edition
a good variety on this one, castlevania covers are all amazing, esp vampire killer and bloody tears omg, ff covers are great esp battle 2, contras are great, battletoads too, ninja gaidens, mario worlds are annoying but metal, naturally zelda tracks are great, dr wily stage 1 is pure win but edit out the slow version at the end, and the moon apparently from duck tales is win as well
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 8
together we ride is epic as hell, and a lot of work was put into making every other track trvly METAL as well

FalKKonE One-Winged Angel

finntroll lay out a masterful album. still ironically title track is the only one i like listening to

Franz Schubert Fantasia in F minor, D. 940
schubert roams across a multitude of landscapes in this 4 movement piece meant to be played with your lady ( ? ?? ?)
Frederic Chopin Waltzes, Op. 64
no 1 is pure riffage win, no 2 is subtler but classy, no 3 not the best closer but rounds it out all the same
Frederic Chopin Polonaises, Op. 26
fairly excellent with a lot of tempo changes and emotional landscapes
Frederic Chopin Polonaises Op. 40
no 1 is pure delight, no 2 is rather stark

a slow build with intermingling frenzies leading to a domineering and irresistible richness
Frederic Chopin Ballade No.2, Op.38
keys of morning mist awaiting the inevitable tempest flurries
Frederic Chopin Ballade No.3, Op.47
an intertwining dance of subtle and conspicuous beauties
Gallowbraid Ashen Eidolon
a seamless blend of bm n folk everything agalloch wishes it was highlight in title
Galneryus Rebel Flag
title is one of their best songs, the keys dude. requiem is a decent intermission and then final resolution for overall epicity
Galneryus Under the Force of Courage
excellent anime metal overall, tho the random haphazard proggy bits slow it down and the latter half of the album doesnt quite clinch despite quality, raise my sword and voice of grievous cry are the trv winners on this bum
Galneryus Alsatia / Cause Disarray
awesome galnery ep
Galneryus Future Never Dies
galner is the best
Gehenna Seen Through the Veils of Darkness
before dimmy was born his older twin brother henna, and together they saw through the veils of darkness for all time, with highlights in shairak, title, and mystical play ( ? ?? ?)
Gehenna First Spell
consider me charmed, synth driven atmospheric bms with tight 90s prod highlight in shivering ghost
Gehenna Rehearsal '94
voxless mystical gehennas of varying quality
Gehenna Malice
a masterful blackened symphony
Ghost Bath Moonlover
ghost bathers do it better cry moar. death n maiden is just as good if not better than golden number, n happyhouse n silv flower p 2 are runnerups. bonus ascension is a banger too

Graveland Carpathian Wolves
a glorious debut
Graveland 1050 Years of Pagan Cult
rerecordings of some of gravelands earliest works and some damn good epic black metal m/
Graveworm As the Angels Reach the Beauty
a gothic black dream, dreaming beauty is the best in this symphony of dark majesty, unfortunately setting up a higher standard for the rest, which while all excellent, dont ever quite reach the initial impression. a couple of the slower tracks are too long as well, but pure win bum regardless m/
Graveworm When Daylights Gone
excellent raw black symph, the vox are amateurish but also perfect, great sense of flow and atmosphere even in slow tracks like far away, amazing key placement as well. love the whole album
Graveworm Underneath the Crescent Moon
wonderful raw ep performed in pitch moonlight
Graveworm Engraved in Black
better production is both a good and bad thing, the trv times starting to get left behind, a bit too crisp. the songwriting also isnt as good, with several tracks requiring edits or just skipped completely, unlike previous albums. still, it is a win graveworm
Heidevolk Walhalla Wacht
not technically a 4 bc of how simple it is, but the execution is perfect so anything less would just be wrong, top tier folk metal
Helleruin War Upon Man
fun punky meloblack
Hellhammer Death Fiend
look at the poseurs above and below. try trv primitive black metal bitches
Holy Blood The Wanderer
raw production, shrieked vox from the depths of (heaven?), folk pervasion, and a mix of bm and hard rock riffs to create a trvly unique record
Holy Blood The Patriot
a combination of waves and shining as well as its own folk metal tangents, and blood of christ purifies sinners
Holy Blood Voice of Blood
evidently fedor going bathory solo was the correct decision. bangers one n all save freedom, the flute accents the riffs instead of just being there, solid vox n drums, title track esp is bomb
Holy Blood Україна
beast track
Horde Hellig Usvart
the trvest of the trv kvvvvvllllltttttt

Insomnium Above the Weeping World
first couple songs are generic af but it picks up and holds on, heart to grave is damn solid. not as good as debut tho
Intestine Baalism An Anatomy of the Beast
solid osdm with random but welcome melodies n shrieks
Johann Pachelbel Hexachordum Apollinis
not pabel's best, still they suggest indeed what apollo might have first played if he had invented keys instead of the lyre and flute, getting gradually better and more masterful within his first hour of play, as the arias arrange themselves from the more timid to the confident, iv and v proudly expounding themselves in their second halves, while the finale in vi goes ever beyond exploring, experimenting, creating, divulging the novice becoming the master
Johann Pachelbel Ach Gott, Vom Himmel Sieh Darein, P.1
pabels organ arrangement naturally excellent
Johann Pachelbel Toccata in E minor
simply an excellent organ toccata from the master
Johann Sebastian Bach Violin Sonata No.2 in A minor, BWV 1003
amazing what a single violin can do
Johann Sebastian Bach Concerto for 3 Harpsichords No 2, BWV 1064
i is a lovely varied dance, ii is a meandering but not too far slow but steady stroll, iii is a more uproarious but curbing its own enthusiasm before becoming trvly raucous dance
Johann Sebastian Bach Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565
one of those epic compositions everyone knows even if they dont know they know it. at times dramatically intense, at others playfully lofty, bach gonna rip yo shit long after all your nude muddle is long forgotten
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G major, BWV 1048
one of bach's best, excellent flow and distinction between fast and slow elements, violin is centre stage and wins it
Johann Sebastian Bach Triple Concerto in A minor BWV 1044
excellent epic concerto, though the flute can be abrasive at times
Johann Sebastian Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
all kinds of key rifflings for any type of listener or player, fast, slow, middling, short, longer, beautiful, melancholic. ii and vi are my particular favourites
Johann Sebastian Bach Organ Concerto in D minor, BWV 596
wonderful concerto throughout, even the largo carries full weight
Johann Sebastian Bach Violin Concerto in A minor, BWV 1041
great brisk allegmo, a good but not quite gripping andante, and a final hammer hitting allesai to bring it all home
Johann Sebastian Bach Violin Concerto BWV 1042 in E Major
love i so much, so happy and elegantly ballroom dancy, ii is suitably melodramatic though not a keeper, and iii is a rapid sendoff to finish the night
Judas Iscariot Dethroned, Conquered and Forgotten
trv soul bm RUINED by turtle tracks
Kaatayra Toda História pela Frente
epic modern bm done right, tho theres rly no point in having moonsorrow length tracks just makes me have to do the work to cut them myself. toda magoa is the best track with miseria not far behind and castigo more of a teaser
Kalmah Swamplord
Evil 5; Wither 4; Berija 3.5; Roija 3.5; Dance 4; Hades Huuuuge 5; Alt 4; Word 4; Blind 4; Vezi 4 very unique and very darkly elegant mdm
Kalmah 12 Gauge
Rust 4.5; Breaking My Balls 3.5; Bullets 4; Swampwar 4.5; Better 3; Hook 4; Godeye 4; Title 4.5; Sacramentum 2
Kalmah Kalmah
kalmah with their sexiest album in 17 years holy shit
Kalter Spiritual Angel
perfectly good melodeath that they splice for no good reason with random and stupid prog sections. the mdm so overpowers the prog that even with my total disdain for all prog it still gets a 4, literally all you have to do is dissect the prog out and you'd have an entirely listenable and admirable mdm album, great keys throughout
Kalter Cold Misery
excellent folky melodeath with icy keys and smart songwriting
Kamijo Sang
lovely romantic japanese symphonic power metal
Keep of Kalessin Agnen: A Journey Through The Dark
an all out bm pummelling the likes of which no one will be keeping his kalessin ( ? ?? ?)

Leaves' Eyes We Came with the Northern Winds / En saga i Belgia
great show from the northern winds
Limbonic Art Phantasmagoria
it took a decade and a half but limbonic art finally graduate to the fiery depths generic title and concept notwithstanding
Lindsey Stirling Lindsey Stirling
excellent violinwomanship with the dubsteppy/lectro fects not adding anything most of the time but not taking anything away either. crystallize n transcendence are especially ahrd
Lindsey Stirling Artemis
a lot more streamlined but the electro elements are well integrated. opening tracks are great, half dozen mids afterward, but darkside onward solidifies it with guardian and aurora among her top most efforts
Lindsey Stirling Shatter Me
has several awkward compositions that make it difficult to give such a high score, and the vox on a couple tracks are pretty pointless, but when she kills it she kills it. take flight, ascendance and master of tides are especially potent
Lord (FRA) Demo 2000
graveyards of dead conquered, lord soars across the heavens terrorizing all with horrid beauty

mild pleasantries until the beast is awakened in iv, he's let out in force in v, temporarily subdued in vi, and allowed to wreak havoc in the apocalypse that is vii
Ludwig van Beethoven Violin Sonata No.9 in A major, Op.47
i is virtuosic yet does not quite capture anything, ii is good when the lesser trills are trimmed, iii is nothing short of a masterpiece
Ludwig van Beethoven Piano Sonata No14 C-sharp minor,Op.27No2
gentle, dark, translucent, one of the first things you'll ever learn to play on piano culminating into the bombastic fury of the 3rd movement, the moonlight sonata will be played long after all the terrible shit you currently listen to and if you dont like it you're deafer than beethoven ever was
Ludwig van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 13 in E♭ major, Op. 27, No. 1
movements ii and iv go ahrd as a couple of beety's best
Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132
requires some editing to keep the highlights high in i-iii, but like his other quartets he lets it rip in iv and v

Mantas Rehearsal #3
mantas is a wicked homage to venom, evil dead has some spontaneous screams not on any other recording of it, and rise of satan is another excellent track not on any of their other recordings, a pure win reh
Mantas Death By Metal
includes a lost edition of death by metal with mantas instead of beyond the unholy grave, the official mantas demo release of death by metal, and rehearsal 3. on the lost edition of death by metal you have a really different but cool prod on the guitars of evil dead, the mantas recording is insane, and the last 2 tracks have some trv shrieks on them

Mayhem Deathcrush
Mayhem Live in Leipzig
when dead was still alive and an epic vocalist, funeral fog through pagan fears go fking AHRD, original lp also has additional studio versions of carnage and freezing moon

amazing incipit kvlt performance, if only dead had seen that life is real too
Mayhem Live in Zeitz
another amazing dead show with a great crowd, prod makes them sound especially gnarly, infinitely better quality than the bonus bootleg ripped version on leipzig deluxe lmao
Mayhem Live in Sarpsborg
an official release of the same show as dawn of the black hearts from a different recording, still an awesome show though the sound quality is better in some ways and worse than others as the infamous bootleg
Mayhem Live in Zeitz (Leipzig Deluxe Version)

Satyricon Rebel Extravaganza
now this is some sexy bm. once you get past the marilyn manson cover and title you're treated to some loud and bombastic riffs of glory. perhaps it no longer has that trv kvlt feel but it's hella entertaining. songwriting is well thought out and executed, they dont waste a moment with pointless filler. only issue is the crystal clear vox, which while arent mindable to the point it takes away from anything, also arent adding a ton to the overall quality
Sear Bliss Phantoms
amazing keys when they use them, good atmosphere, but overall slow and it makes me sad. highest lights in beyond the darkness and with mournful eyes

Tenebrarum Alta Magia
trvly magical osdm with synths that equate in just the right way to the brutality when theyre used, along with some atmospherically spoopy intrums that arent rly that good but add sthg not in any other dm. only problem is the vox sounds like he's swallowing the mike to make himself sound bigger in place of more powerful growls n gets dangerously nespithey at times

easily the best venom album since welcome to hell. clear but hellish production, every track is a banger and slays poseurs
Venom Black Metal
Venom Demo
clive isnt as wild as what cronos would soon unleash and the motorhead and early 70s metal influences are a lot more plain in these editions yet the blueprints for the trv are revealed and taking crimson flight and holy shit their band track not on anything else until 1997 is pure trv win
Vesperian Sorrow Beyond The Cursed Eclipse
this is american black sympth alright, roughly hewn excess and all over the place, which isnt to say it isnt as glorious as any of the european masters. an excellent record by any account, but why, for all saint melody's sake why, is that the album cover?
Vesperian Sorrow Psychotic Sculpture
a much more polished and genre exploratory album yet doesnt match its predecessor
Vesperian Sorrow Stormwinds Of Ages
a streamlined yet undeniably well composed blasymphony
Warmen Beyond Abilities
damn he actually worked on this one. several tracks basically bodom with the keys as the main riffs, title, hidden, trip, dawn, singer's chance are all great, and salieri strikes back is hilarious as well as a fully legit and best tune
Windir Arntor
windir can have all my babies part 2
Windir Likferd
one final melodic black folk epic. gone too soon before culminating many more, yet what a legacy to leave behind. our children will grow strong. RIP Valfar, a trv badass
Windir Det Gamle Riket
an epic demo done at 16-17, rougher mixes of some tracks on soknardalr plus the non-lp krigaren, great shit
Winterage The Inheritance of Beauty
a unique take on power symph with extensive use of legit italian opera and orchestra quality strings
Wintersun Wintersun
the ferocity of winter and beauty of the north, siffy's trv third album
Wintersun The Forest Seasons (Instrumental)
sounds much better voxless, a lotr score epic journey with blastbeats and riffs
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, K. 331
doesn't get much more piano slappy than this bros
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Sonata No.4 in E flat, K282
adagio and menuettos are slower but worth the highlights, then he lets it go in the allegro
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Serenade No. 13 in G Major, K.525
probably the most famous allegro in all music, it's as charming as it is annoying as you've heard it 1000 times before, the most famous pop song of the classical era. then a much less famous andante that is easy to the ear enough and does increase into a minor climax, a rather diminutive and forgettable allegretto, and one of mozart's strongest pieces of all time in the finale allegro, lively and to the heart with a piercing as it is frenzied climax
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, K. 448
i is excellent, ii is gentle, iii is that famous tune you're looking for
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Symphony No. 39 in E♭ major, K. 543
excellent symphony, i goes ahrd, ii and iii are good with editing, and iv is a masterpiece
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5, K. 219
a very lovely concerto, set by i, amassed in ii and perfected across a vigorous but pleasantly undulating landscape in iii
X Japan Blue Blood
great album, highlights in kurenai and rose of pain
Zel Agganor Rise of the Black Star
a solid meloblack release into the world of zel agganor

3.5 great

...uhhh this band. silly, silly bois, still mostly solid bm and adjacent with highlights in aquarium of children (why) and salipsism
...and Oceans A.M.G.O.D.
not bad, intell is sexy is the best track
1914 The Blind Leading the Blind
pretty good blackened death a la behemoth, but has way too many interludes and little smudgeons here and there
1914 Where Fear and Weapons Meet Bonus LP
some nice extras including a melobleath'd rise against cover, silly techno remixes, a sombre yet cheeky reality jab, and suitable instrumentals
50 Cent The Collaboration Ep
fiddy down it even ahrder with gangsta frens
A Flock of Seagulls Space Age Love Song
space age instrumentation is pure win regardless of tempo, mikes old man voice isnt bad, slowed down version needs the drawled vox removed though
A Flock of Seagulls A Flock of Seagulls
a lot of great synthwork duo guitar dynamics, culminating especially in i ran and space age, but everything after gets progressively less interesting and its hard to believe its not full of masterpieces
Absu Immortal Sorcery
intense ass dm track
Absu Return of the Ancients
lesser prodded than immortal sorcery but gud dms, an ambient, and a deathdoom
Absu Return of the Ancients - The Temples of Offal
ancient ahsum absu
Absu Barathrum V.I.T.R.I.O.L.
dense amped osdm with black vox and a handful of synthwork
Absu The Sun of Tiphareth
an increasingly more eclectic album than anything before, most fantasy adventure albums simply create the atmosphere, but this one trvly feels like it highlight in apzu

a collection of accepts ahrdest (minus balls) gone balls to the wall LIVE

good metal in the venom and bathory traditions. their best

adrenaline od put the AHRD in ARHDcore

definitely furries but pretty good folk mdm with keys

Agnostic Front Cause For Alarm
crystal hardcore with thrash solos whats not to love
Ahab The Oath
Al-Namrood Atba'a Al-Namrood
title track is so good omg. rest is good arab influenced black metal that could get them killed at any time /m/
Al-Namrood Jaish AlNamrood
good araby metal tunes, atbaa n esp naqoos
Alcest Spiritual Instinct
best 'cest ;)
Alestorm Sunset on the Golden Age
its dumb, its silly, its also pure fun. the boys rly went out of their way outsourcing ppl much more talented than them to make sthg worth listening to, and it worked. chris's vox still suck and its too bad they didnt replace him/get singing lessons except for the tao cover (which is pure win) but the whole album is honestly a good time obliterating any shits given about its ridiculousness
Alestorm Voyage of the Dead Marauder
Alice Cooper Trash
good rock songs, poison and bed of nails are timeless
Alphonse Mouzon Mind Transplant
makin' jazz cool again
Altar (NLD) Until Heaven Forbids

dissectiony/immortaly black symph

like silent waters 3 amazing tracks at the beginning and it feels great but then they slowly taper down

good new tracks, good live tracks
Amorphis Black Winter Day
like thousand lakes but shorter
Amorphis Privilege of Evil
a weird but good version of morphis

some rly dirty dm. almost wish theyd stayed this way. death to poseurs [2]
Amorphis Silent Waters (EP)
one of title albums best tracks and a filler
Amorphis Brother and Sister
when your bonus tracks are better than the album
Anachronia The Endless Agony
garage/basement production but still the riffs n melodies cannot be denied. gothic prog mdeth that keeps interesting, highlights in title and time so long
Ancient Proxima Centauri
alright they drop the ball here and become a more generic dimmy worship meloblack with uncomplementary sillies but eyes of the dead is classic symphy fun
Angra Cycles Of Pain
gets real sloggy in the middle but overall a nice slab of powered symph
Antestor Det Tapte Liv
whats wrong with those lyrics bitch? typical ep, a couple upcoming tracks and a few otherwise unreleased little tidbit pieces
Antestor Kongsblod (Demo)
can only find title track, which is very good
Anthrax Sound of White Noise
rockin n energetic rock songs done right. even have an emergent melodeath song in only

Anthrax Anthrax (1983 Demo)
scratchy thrashier than 1982's tracks and another version of howling furies
Antonin Dvorak Silhouettes, Op. 8
dainty little tunes without any clinchers
Antonio Vivaldi The Four Seasons
Spring i. 3.5 bombastic with a great climax, tho somewhat annoying ii. 2 quite boring iii. 3.5 great romantic sweeps but dips a bit too much; Summer i. 4 wish there were no slow sections ii. 2 more boring iii. 4.5 stfu its impossible to overplay this masterpiece; Autumn i. 3.5 just as iconic and mid as spring i ii. 1.5 quite boring iii. 3.5 lofty fun; Winter i. 4.5 harder than anything until the 80s ii. 3 the only good adagio of the four concertos iii. 4 snowy with a fitting blizzard of a climax
Antonio Vivaldi Cello Sonata in B-flat major, RV 46
a relaxing and rather mid sonata until iv when he amps it up
Arcturus Aspera Hiems Symfonia
a lot of different styles churned around, often too slow where it really doesn't need to be in an attempt to be epic but misses the mark most of the time. still their doomy dimmyness works wonderfully in fall of man, and to thou is a great banger
Arghoslent Hornets of the Pogrom
if george fisher actually had talent and heartwork was actually worked on. highlights in manacled freightage and esp the grenadier
Arghoslent Troops of Unfeigned Might
good mdm trax
Arghoslent Bastard Son of One Thousand Whores
pretty good mellydelly trax but poor production
Arkona (RUS) Goi, Rode, Goi!
has the finntroll issue of being generally good but not outstanding, as well as just kind of plain slavic arrangement
Arkona (RUS) Ot Serdtsa K Nebu
not always the best folk, but when they hit it, you will dance
Armoured Angel Mysterium
groovy barebones osdm
Art Inferno Abyssvs Abyssvm Invocat
a darker, more amateur cradle of filth clone with stormlord elements. seriously neiro's shrieks are just like dani's didnt think anyone else could do it. highlights in orgiastic dance and blood of eternal love
Artificial Brain Artificial Brain
a techdeath album i actually like wtf (its cuz it has soul)
Artificial Brain Infrared Horizon
death metal krallice be like

Atargatis Accurst from the Deep
a bit more built ep with better production yet still charmingly raw, highlights in the mirror within and the lofty and beautiful last goodbye
Atheist Piece of Time
gud old school deathrash, on they slay n beyond best tracks
Atlas Pain What the Oak Left
a lesser version of every folky mdm band u know, but still pretty good
Atrocity Hallucinations
techdeath as it should be, sticking to its roots without more than a passing interest in the foreign elements
Attacker Battle at Helm's Deep
trv eavy metal m/
Atvm Famine, Putrid and Fucking Endless
some good techy melodeath. if you would have told me i'd like it i wouldn't have believed you. even has some cool bass solos in there and prominent throughout
Aura Noire Sombre Chevauchée
the single track that can be found off this is also cradle worship but slightly lamer
Autopsy Severed Survival
when your drummer copies your homework a bit, a lesser version of leprosy
Autopsy Morbidity Triumphant
autopsy back with an ahrd modern dm album much faster than their usual style n with many zinger solos to boot
Autopsy Critical Madness demo
trv CRITICALLY MAD autopsy
Autopsy 1987 demo
trv autopsy, slow dm with ripping solos
Autopsy Dark Crusades
88 reh is great esp human geno and critical madness, 93 hong kong cafe show quality sucks balls but highlight in severed survival, stone show tracks are few and meh, ruthless inn goes ahrrrrdddddd great show

the darkvst of dvbuts
Barathrum Anno Aspera: 2003 Years After Bastard's Birth
some amazing bangers like corpse desec n sealed but not their best effort
Barathrum Devilry
finally a good barathrum demo goddamn
Bare Infinity The Butterfly Raiser
a fine symph album, well placed keys and good pacing, most songs arent must haves but race of destiny, artemis, and ashes rock
Bathory Octagon
bathy's 2nd worst album, yeah. but a bad album? NOT ON YOUR LIFE. in the vein of requiem but even more down in the dirt thrash with quorthon just going where the fuck ever EAT MY SHIT!! SUCK MY DICK!!
Batushka Царю Небесный
pismo i-iii a lot more solid than after
Behemoth Sventevith (Storming Near the Baltic)
a stormy bm debut with appreciable synth effects
Behemoth The Satanist
tight modern blackened death for the boys
Behemoth Pandemonic Incantations
whats with all classic bm bands going prog in the late 90s? anyway overall great progged light bm tracks with more melodious structures in the latter half, highlights in past funeral and entrance mars, with the bonus new edition spell of inferno also a win
Behemoth Slaves Shall Serve
pretty damn solid for an ep. great tracks, a great niphilim and slightly awkward but fun danzig cover, 2 solid live tracks
Behemoth Ezkaton
another more than solid ep. title track is bomb af definitely one of their best songs, good covers and live tracks as usual

a great ep from the one n only behemot

Billy Talent Billy Talent II
fuck u davezilla that is pure canadian-polish accent vox that must be preserved for all
eternity, and ian d'sa is a god; devil 3.5 fun fact went to school with the kid in the music vid
(he's a dwarf) also did a weird al version of this called my left eye without the glass referring
to losing a contact and thus having difficulty coordinating, demo version of this sounds
interesting; red flag 4 loved the song so much in elementary omg never reconnected until hs;
suffering 3.5 another addictive track; worker bees 3 this is the weirdest and most awkward track
theyve ever written when i listened to the full actual album the first time i was like wtf is this
cuz every other track would get played everywhere all the time, regardless still has a strong
chorus like everything they did back then and always wins me over by the end despite my initial
reaction to wanting to delete it but then dat chor comes in and im like omg; pins and needles 3.5
as trv and full of pathos as can be over a breakup/romantic failure; fallen leaves ive listened to
this shit too much for it to make the trv impact it once did but realistically a 4; line 3 better
written than bees yet too simple, just kind of romps on but good message n d'sa carries it more
than ben does; cowardice 2.5 filler track tho it contains ben's best and most believable screams;
surrender 5 love this song so much, the melody, the d'sa back vox, the desperation, the pathos,
the irony of wanting her to surrender then eventually surrendering himself, somehow tragic despite
nothing actually happening, the double irony of it being so cringe in concept yet so amazing in
execution, basically perfect song; navy song 4 another of their best songs, fun but hard and full
of pathos, d'sa again taking such a strong lead to make it work, the entire track sounding like
the undulations of a ship at sea from smaller to larger waves to heavy gunfire in the midst of
ocean warfare; perfect 2.5 another filler track chorus is rocky but dumb track for the most part,
the ctrl alt del lyric especially cringe af; sympathy fuck me this is trash why didnt the album
end already its long enough total fucking filler track so much for getting this to 4 overall fuck
me have a 2; burn the evidence 2.5 one final filler diller track why end so poorly omg final score
Bilskirnir In Flames of Purification
a good mix of 2000s raw bm + blackened melodic death flicks highlights in for victory we ride and die lichtung
Black Knight Master of Disaster
epic classic metal esp the 1st 2 tracks
Black Majesty (USA-NY) Authors of Evil
a poor lost thrash demo with a few deathy tendencies, silence of the wind/dominion of evil goes aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahrrrrrdddd
Black Sabbath Vol. 4
sabbath return with some excellent metallic ahrd rock alongside metallin cornucopia and the epic under the sun
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
sabbath go full metal and master the reality of the riff
Black Sabbath Black Sabbath
title, wizard and nib are the birth of metal. the beginning, but far, far from the end
Black Wytche Tempting the Blade
a trvly wytchy thrash demo featuring band track, the venomy the wild, and title
Blind Guardian Battalions of Fear
raw thrashy bg best bg
Blind Guardian Tales from the Twilight World
bg's best album. refined thrashiness of their first two albums plus epic power metal form without going much into their later style. highlights in twilight hall and esp last candle
Blind Guardian The Tides of War - Live at Rock Hard Festival 2016
actually a rly good bg ep/live show
Blue Oyster Cult Secret Treaties
and now the coochie cult rly attracting the masses with a killer rocker with pearls for all
Bolt Thrower Those Once Loyal
first half incorporates some modern elements and works great, second half straight dm that actually has effort put into it, best record since debut way to finish strong
Bolt Thrower The Peel Sessions
weaker versions of the masterpieces that would be on in battle
Bolt Thrower Concession of Pain
demo production leaves it hanging but no doubt this is the win that led to in battle. park u noob
Bon Jovi New Jersey
a better version of slippery with highlights in born baby and blood on blood
Bond Explosive: The Best of Bond
the best of bond agreed: victory, explosive, fuego, viva, duel are topguns while the rest bring good momentum
Bond Born
electropop renditions of some of the most famous classy tunes, highlights in wintersun, victory, korobushka, duel and viva!
Bond Raymond Weil
victory remix ruins it but othello, duel, and bella donna are great
Bond Fab Field's Mix
atlanta stands out amongst these generally fun string mixes
Boris Apostolov Easy Listening Piano Classics, Volume 1
just as it says on the jewel case, soft renditions of piano ubiquities with a highlight in passacaglia
Borknagar Borknagar
generally good black metals with sum folky dabbling
Borknagar The Olden Domain
a more folk than black mishmash of bork
Borknagar Quintessence
a return to form in a much more well prodded manner, good balance of folk and black too
Brain Drill Apocalyptic Feasting
not so much tech as just rly fast dm, me like. cry moar you big babies
Brain Drill Quantum Catastrophe
they mellowed out into typical deathy tech but going on for 10 mins straight is quite admirable
Brain Drill The Parasites
how to techdeath
Brandy Human
damn brandy got a nice bum : )
Brocas Helm Into Battle
unabashed unrelenting mrocks
Brymir Breathe Fire to the Sun
basically a more coordinated siffy album
Brymir Wings of Fire
symph and bm elements are great most of the time, mdm is basic but works, but when they get in a tight spot they resort to fuckin mccore riffs and vox, taking this down a lot. weak vox in general are a problem for this band. u ppl have no idea what ur listening to lmao
Burden of Ymir From Elivagar
first half is disappointing but a solid second half with blazing accordian win
Burzum Daudi Baldrs
and thus dungeon synth was born!! using their ultra-super powers, varg, the norwegian justice system, and diablo nerds everywhere created the ultimate medieval inspired genre that no medieval listener would ever recognize and instead burn varg at the stake for even suggesting it while forgiving him of such a common sin as murder! highlight in moti ragnarokum
Burzum Balders Død (Dauði Baldrs demo)
raw bewitching unmastered demos with some lectrix bleh at the end
Caladan Brood Echoes Of Battle
a more ambient style folk bm. its not bad by any means and hits the spot just right sometimes but its minimalism also leaves a lot to be desired. highlight in echoes of battle. no fools this not better than summoning ffs
Caladan Brood Summoning Covers
some great covers tho cb isnt amazing
Camel Camel
camel riding lessons go a long way
Candlemass Ancient Dreams
this is where the mass really starts, archeron is such a jam
Candlemass Tales of Creation
another great album. highlights in unfathomed tower and halls of death
Carach Angren Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten
finally an album that actually cares about the instrumentation. cool album
Carrie Underwood Denim & Rhinestones
carrie being involved in the writing of nearly every track on this album leads to her most powerful, punchy, country rock bopper yet. pink champagne has the most clever and romantic alcohol-love metaphors of mainstream music and i am overall impressed
Castlesiege The Council of Trees
the soundtrack of oot mixed with the score of the karate kid
Catamenia Halls Of Frozen North
a great blackened melowin debut, highlights in dreams of winterland and forest enthroned
Catamenia Morning Crimson
great but not standout meloblack, i guess this lady is where all the catamenia comes from hehehehe
Catamenia Location:COLD
what goes up must come down, and with the combination of this being their 7th album, following up their masterpiece winternight tragedies, and the stupid title, it is surprising the fall isnt a greater depth. a lot more clean vocals on this album, which while arent bad, arent enticing either, otherwise generally gud melolbms
Cauldron In Ruin
legit 80s sounding pizza metal, tt esp is rockin
Celtic Frost Morbid Tales/Emperor's Return
frost's early bests with that dumb extended crypt of rays intro
Celtic Frost To Mega Therion
trv dark trash with slight emergent bm elements
Celtic Frost Tragic Serenades
jewel throne is a fucking thrasher, absolutely no coming signal for into the pandemonium on this lmao

an even better darkened thrash teaser with highlights in circle of the tyrants, visual aggression, and suicidal winds

downtuned 70s metal riffs plus nascent thrash forthcomings enwrapped in a new darkness highlighting in nocturnal fear
Cenotaph (MX) Saga Bélica
good dm but the weak vox take it down more than a few notches
Charles Gounod Ave Maria
schubert + bach + someone who can really sing the lyrics = an excellent composition
Children of Bodom I Worship Chaos
Hurt 3.5 but sounds hollow, great drops; Bodom 3 but also hollow; Morrigan 3.5 but sounds cheap; Horns 3 same hollowness; Prayer one of not one but TWO ballads on the album whoa, more than a little poignant 3.5 but still has that same awkwardness of the others; Title easily best track 5 despite the cheese keys; Tongue 2 fucking garbage filler song; Suicide Bomber 2.5 another awkward dud janne's keys the only thing saving it from oblivion; All for Nothing 3 tighter but somehow more awkward breakup ballad, even the unusually long piano solo not rly adding up to the epicness it ought, just kind of eh; Widdershins actual epic track easy ass 5. covers arent worth much
Children of Bodom Halo of Blood
Waste of Skin 4; Title 4; Scream 2.5 hate that opening riff so much; Transference 5 epic; Blue Moon 3 generic for bodom, whats with the unnecessarily long ass title?; Days 3 another generic for bodom track; Dead Man's 3 cute/creepy track kind of awkward and odd for bodom; Damaged 2 pure filler track one of their worst ever; All Twisted 3 more generic bodom; One Bottle 3.5 generic but fun. sleeping in my car cover is pretty win
Children of Bodom Skeletons in the Closet
pretty much every track on this is an upgrade especially somebody, hypnosis, dont stop, she is beautiful is pure win as a metal song, condition, bed of nails is FUCKING EPIC, aces high is FUCKING EPIC, rebel yell is win, hellion is win, and of course oops i did it again is FUCKING WIN, waiting is lolz more bands should do entire cover albums
Cinderella Night Songs
does a band more encapsulate the spirit of hair than cinderella? classic and trv
Cirith Ungol Forever Black
how is their 2020 album their best. also they still sound 80s which is cool
Cirith Ungol King of the Dead
more epic than their debut with a highlight in title
Cirith Ungol Paradise Lost
another great album by the seeeth butthoooolleeee
Cirith Ungol Cirith Ungol
the constant hshshshshshshhsssshhss does get in the way of the riffs sometimes but still rules
Cirith Ungol Live
Coroner R.I.P.
early deathrash wins, highlights in reborn, suicide, and spiral dream
Corpsegrinder Corpsegrinder
simpler structures and far more groovy make this better than any actual cc album get rekt get shrekt
Corrosion of Conformity Animosity
crass crazy crossover corroding conformity contemptuously
Cradle of Filth Dusk... and Her Embrace
raw amateurishly orchestrated but thats what makes it a classic. dani's not quite mastered shrieks are everywhere and they just let out what they can of their young souls. highlights in carpathia and title
Cradle of Filth Evermore Darkly
some of the best tracks off darkly, some silliness, and a not bad new track
Cradle of Filth From the Cradle to Enslave
great title track and some not bad extras
Cradle of Filth The Manticore and Other Horrors
more mdm than theyve ever been, highlights in abhorrent, frost on her pillow, onyx wings, and succumb to this ( ? ?? ?)
Cradle of Filth Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa
Title 4 awesome; Abyss 3.5; Nun 3.5; Sacred 3.5; Persec 3.5 cool melody; Deceiv 3.5; Lilith 4; Spawn 3; Harlot 3.5; Forgive 3 very maideny; Beyond 3.5 Bonus: Beast 3; Truth 3; Adest 3; Mistress 3.5 got a little mozart tune in there; Jagged 3
Crass Stations of the Crass
Crimson Moon Mors Vincit Omnia
the crimson moon finally gets the hang of composing a nice meloblasymphony
Crimson Moonlight The Covenant Progress
pretty solid blackened death yet seems to be lacking a firm clincher
Crimson Moonlight Wings of Death
pretty good modern bm track looking forward to abaddon
Crionics Human Error: Ways to Selfdestruction
production is amazing for 2002, solid melodic death/black, yet somehow isnt too amazing despite surefire technicality
Cro-Mags Age of Quarrel
trv raw metallic AHRDCORE
Cro-Mags Best Wishes
classic metal riffs but backed by a needlessly weak punk backbone. Lol
Cruciamentum Obsidian Refractions
veritable modern deathdoom
Crystal Abyss Darkness Awakes
arhder cof track
Cynic Focus
the best of prog metal. simply metal done in a prog style, even the quieter instrums/jazz infusions never lose their edge, nothing else matches it. robot vox add an interesting industrial lair, tho on a couple tracks their overuse changes the tone from serious to just plain silly. harsh vox, unlike on later death albums, actually match the music and arent overused. prob the best and only good prog metal album ever
Cynic Reflections of a Dying World
cynic at their deathrashiest
Dark Angel Leave Scars
great thrash but nothing pure win
Dark Angel We Have Arrived
a heavy/thrash hybrid that gets ahrder the farther you go in heheheh

Dark Funeral Dark Funeral
a fine start to a funeral

great modernized bm with highlights in stigmata, declaration, n dreams, not to mention one of the sickest album arts ever
Dark Funeral The Secrets of the Black Arts
title is amazing spawn of mayhem, the rest standardized darkness
Dark Funeral Where Shadows Forever Reign
i like funeral, they have a good grasp of songwriting even if the vox are crystal clear, couldnt even tell this was 21st century, another awesome cover too
Dark Funeral Diabolis Interium
for their third lp dark funeral present a tightly composed competent bm album without any marvels
Dark Funeral We Are the Apocalypse
nightfall is a fun black n roll track while leviathan and title are solid jams, rest is inoffensive standard dark funeral
Dark Mirror ov Tragedy Dark Mirror ov Tragedy
a pretty great korean blasymph album whose flow is ruined by fucking metallica but also featuring DAT ASS
Dark Moor The Hall of the Olden Dreams
a better version of rof who honestly should have their place. production is fresh as fuck for 2000 and a sophy album, somewhere in dreams, bells of notre dame, beyond the fire, n esp quest for the eternal fame go ahrd
Dark Tranquillity Trail of Life Decayed
another early demo better than any of their albums. beyond enlightenment rulz, listen to it now bitches
Dark Tranquillity A Moonclad Reflection

fun dm demo with a worthy name
Darude Before the Storm
fun lectrix, tho too many songs sound like sandstorm. highlight in out of control
Dawn Sorgh pa Svarte Vingar Flogh
solid meloblack without any soul piercers
Dawn The Eternal Forest - Demo Years '91-'93
melodic n grindy win on demo 1, straight swedeaf on apparition, a mix showcasing their total skillz on 93
Dawn Nær Solen Gar Nider For Evogher
solidly blackened dm with subtle melodies that never overtake
Dawn Apparition
more of a classic swedish osdm
Dawn Promotional Demo
a showcase of both their melody infused as well as straight swedeath
Deafheaven Roads to Judah
violet and first half of tunnel are excellent, middle two tracks leave something to be desired
Deafheaven Demo
pretty good demo, dat daedalus
Death Human
veritable deathrash with a tasteful amount of if still momentum ruining prog sections
Death Reign of Terror
behold, trv death!
Death Mutilation
human fucking disgrace agreed, mutilation, mutilation, MUTILATION!!!!
Death Angel Heavy Metal Insanity
as the title implies solid heavy by a high school band with a 10 yo drummer who definitely kicked all the ass at the battle of the bands
Deceased Luck of the Corpse
a bit silly but also trv dm, highlight in futuristic doom
Deicide Deicide
raw primitively carved dm by the killers of the gods
Deicide Scars of the Crucifix
death metal as it should be with direction and purpose
Deicide Overtures of Blasphemy
pretty good solid dm in the vein of improved versions of their last 2 albums
Deicide Amon: Feasting the Beast
better versions of some of their earliest songs
Demolition Hammer Epidemic of Violence
ahrd deathrash riffage but overly rhythmic n vox just exasperated shoutbarks
Demon Night of the Demon
classic metal that melts back into igneous rock by track 5 but hardens into steel again somewhat at the very end
Demon Hunter Demon Hunter
raw and full of energy, certainly the best thing to come out of the nu/alt era of hard rock (no this and slipknot have never been metal). screams, infected, throat, black & to a lesser but still ahrd degree wept slap yo mama into next week n the rest still bring general consistency thruout. gauntlet sucks tho
Der Weg Einer Freiheit Agonie
p good german atmospheric black metalz
Destruction Release from Agony
quiet but nevertheless the thrash shines thru
Destruction Eternal Devastation
a better effort than debut but nothing mindblowing
Diabolical Masquerade The Phantom Lodge
a more serious cof with acoustic interludes
Diabolical Masquerade Nightwork
a solid n appreciable blasymph tho more obsessed than your avg rapper with z's everywhere
Dimmu Borgir Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
the descent begins. largely streamlined production and riffs accompanied by a lot of filler and silly clean vocals as well as pointless instrumentals. still some bangers and the classic era dimmy isnt completely gone yet
Dimmu Borgir Alive In Torment
a fair enough live recording of mostly newer tracks
Dimmu Borgir For All Tid
light production n vox make it less than desirable in heaviness but the artistry is there
Dimmu Borgir Inn I Evighetens Mørke
raw full of nascent inspiration but lacks power and fierce composition
Discharge Why
shit this is prob the best punk album ever
Disfear Live the Storm
maxed out motorhead with lindberg sounding good for once, tho it gets somewhat ennuous after the first 3 tracks until the phantom finisher
Dismember Indecent & Obscene
solid tracks like fleshless, skin, n bitch but the rest hinge on being too thrash for dm n dont stick out as much
Dismember Dismembered
raw ahrd death metal
Dismember Last Blasphemies
moar ahrd raw death metal
Dismember Rehearsal Tape - 88
yes the recording is shit but trust me the riffs are there
Dismember Pieces
polished random melody death metal for your pleasure
Dismember Misanthropic
a pretty good deathrash effort better than their surrounding albums
Dissection Live and Plugged
pretty damn solid n tight live album, like they came right out of the studio
Dissection The Somberlain
a lighter take on bm that nevertheless integrates itself into the satanic pantheon
Dissection Live Legacy
great show, both better n worse in sum ways as studio versions
Dissection Where Dead Angels Lie
one of the epicest of eps, this version of dead angels lie features a believable scream of terror
Draconian Where Lovers Mourn
doom done right, keeping intensity, lovely lady vox, not slowing too much
Dragon Horda Goga
great but not stellar polish deathrash record with some trad singing as well
Dragon Upadły Anioł
polish vox just death ahrder
DragonForce Extreme Power Metal
excellent relentless powaa metaa, legit impressed
DragonForce Killer Elite (The Hits - The Highs)
excellent collection of some of their most slappiest slaps
DragonForce Sonic Firestorm
trv pm with highlights in spirit n fury n once
Drexciya Neptune's Lair
minimalist alien sex noises that get progressively more arousing and unfy
Drudkh Anti-Urban
oblivion is nice for a high school slow dance but ashes is a party
Dungeon Serpent World of Sorrows
one of those death heavy mdms a la intest baalism/arghoslent, pretty good yet nothing especially exciting
Dungeon Serpent Promo
bm raw melodeths
Dwarrowdelf The Sons of Fëanor
relaxing dunthy summonings to rest those on a wear journey, highlight in the mighty maedhros
Dwarrowdelf This Shattered World
instrumentation is high excellence but the vox ruin it being too corey
Edenbridge Aphelion
edenbridge is difficult to rate because they neither soar too high nor fall too low, like reading war and peace. still there's enough in undiscovered land, skyward, whispering gallery, and farpoint anywhere to merit collection
Edenfall Forever Fallen
somnolent yet effective gothdoom, with edits omen and beauty are highlights
Effluence Psychocephalic Spawning
this is actually rly cool bdm. i dont want to keep any of it but relentless experimentation of rhythms and brutalities and drum strikes w/etf that screamy ghost effect is and it just flows together unapologetically. cant tell one track from another besides the movie clips
Elderwind The Colder The Night
first 2 tracks are nightsky beauty but evidently the cold started getting to them as the intensity dwindles more and more
Elina Garanca Meditation
lovely voice, works well done with an especial highlight in the cantique du noel
Eluveitie Origins
another solid entertaining but not mind-blowing album by the swiss, nameless, darkness, virunus, inception, vianna are all excellent followed by the main highlights of the album in silver sister and king, not one to miss for any folk afficionado
Eluveitie Ategnatos
first metal album with the new lineup and about as good as an elv album gets. indeed, good riddance to anna as her replacements are not only much hotter women but a lot more talented as well. ambiramus is the starchild here with the rest of the album a consistent medium rare to medium throughout, though of course the deletion of the worthless narration bits would improve it slightly
Elvenking The Winter Wake
folk metal yellowcard with highlights in trows kind, swallow tale and march of fools
Elysion Someplace Better
its graces are a lot subtler than debut, still lies, promise, and the 3 closing tracks uplift it a great deal
Elysion Killing My Dreams
acoustics suck but demo n live are just as win as the album versions
Emile Waldteufel Estudiantina Waltz
on one hand generic victorian classical, on the other a trv old time banger
Emperor Call from the Grave
a rough demo showcasing the young emperor ascendant
Emperor IX Equilibrium
the emperor starts to go a little crazy, unable to handle his immense empire with haphazard commands as swords of damocles appear everywhere
Ensemble Desiderium The Deceit (demo 2021)
a legit slow reigning folk assault
Ensemble Desiderium The Epilogue / Sit Mihi Lux (demo 2021)
happy bagpipe tune
Ensiferum Iron
a somewhat awkward but still fun release before jari untimely (ahaha) jumped ship, highlights in title, slayer of light, and into battle
Ensiferum Demo 97
epic and pure as it should have remained
Ensiferum Demo II
another excellent effort by the early sif, tho already showing what would soon be chinks in their armour as well, highlight in white storm and the main riff of dreamers prelude
Ensiferum Hero in a Dream
when ensiferum was still a hero in jari's dreams
Enslaved Frost
thulean frost
Entombed Crawl
excellent dm ep done only the way entombed do
Entombed But Life Goes On
amazing initial demo by the 'tombed
Entombed Clandestine
a step down from left hand path, less deathy and already exhibiting what would become their signature death n roll style
Epica The Quantum Enigma
quite possibly the best leading intro ive ever heard, second stone is a great opener, followed by the in equal parts awkward and awesome essence of silence, i swear at a couple points the chorus is yelling piii-kaaa-chuuu. victims is another weirdly-awesome track, same with insomnia. canvas is this albums tides of time and isnt bad, corruption another good track. rest is dece but not worth hearing again save the omen chorus. overall a powerfully bombastic something piece with great lines scattered throughout
Epica Design Your Universe
epica is the most awkwardly composed metal band ever and this is their best, esp when simone goes as high as she can omg
Epica The Divine Conspiracy
a simone-driven symphonic feast (and given that she went so far as to strip down for the cover it ought to be) telling you, and you, and you, that your religion is full of shit. first half is pretty solid requiring only minor edits, but gets a little rickety after the hebrew inspired instrumental with death falling short and only the chorus of living a lie being any good, but returns to the win with the sexy fools of damnation and pretty good beyond belief, finally culminating in the total garbage track safeguard but excellent sancta terra, ending with the decent but necessarily edited title track
Epica The Solace System
pretty good ep with highlights in title, wheel, n the epic poetry
Equilibrium Demo 2003
the record company when handed this demo tape: SHUT UP, TAKE MY MONEY, AND GO ON TO RECORD AMAZING FOLK ALBUMS FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT DECADE!!! to which they most literally adhered
Equilibrium Renegades (8-Bit)
when ur 8 bit album is better than ur actual album. himmel und feuer actually sounds so good, path of destiny is much better. moonlight turns from an unlistenable garbage heap to a slapper, likewise kawaakari. final tear is some intense shit if u were 8 yrs old n u heard that on the final boss omg shit ur pants. hype sounds the same but kawaii, phoenix as well
Equilibrium Waldschrein
pretty good ep giving a clear idea for what was to come
Equilibrium Erdentempel
still a pretty good lp but lost a lot of their power and epicness along the way, just what happens when youre whole lineup changes i guess. robse cool tho. best track is easily sound of our flutes. also was ist dies englisch?!?!?! that the epic 11 min instrum aufbruch is bonus is bullshit, but its not that good anyway
Equilibrium Rekreatur
how does one follow an album as epic as sagas? one cant, and thus this awkward 'rekreated' album. every facet is essentially a chimera from the art to the title. gone is stang to be replaced with the lovable but much less talented robse, whose vox have an added effect to make them seem harsher than they really are to try to make up for it. thus this album is largely standard symphonic/folk fare with some harsher elements as callbacks, though fahrtwind ( ?? ?? ??) and wenn erdreich bricht are still masterpieces. the volkls would leave next, and one more attempt at a heavy folk album would be made in erdentempel, before the once great pieces of equilibrium were knocked right off their rocker. mindestens es ist alle auf deutsch! bonus acoustics are kind of fun esp blut im auge und heimwarts omg
Eternal Champion The Armor of Ire
cool melopower with ghost prod vox, highlight in title track
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Vilda Mánnu
a bit rough as a sophy ought to be but classic mdm
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Children of the Dark Waters
generally competent symph n mdm sections without doing anything that great save midnight bird almost sounding like kalmah
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Before the Bleeding Sun
another mid solid album with highlights in rune n tar
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Chaotic Beauty
autumns grief and seventh eclipse are masterpieces, rest is mid to good kalmah-cof mdm
Eternity's End Unyielding
one of those annoyingly good-greats where they clearly have the ability to pull off something amazing but choose not to, vox arent the greatest either but still highlights in timeless realms, cyclopean force, and gates of salvation
Eucharist Greeting Immortality
prob the best versions of these 2 tracks
Eucharist Mistress of Nightmares
another solid but more flippant track bringing i am the void together
Eucharist Rehearsal
why is this lowest fi reh so much better than their albums
Evanescence Origin
holy shit this is the best thing theyve ever done. actually want to listen to my immortal
Ewelina Lisowska Aero-Plan
a blazin rocker of a polish chick with a trv rockstar voice, imagine the pretty reckless but good, highlight in the celestially romantic w strone slonca
Exodus Bonded by Blood
trv trash but baloff sucks on vox they made a great decision recruiting the souzer
Exodus Impact Is Imminent
consistent high quality thrash unlike the big four
Exodus Fabulous Disaster
rocky thrash party
Exodus Objection Overruled
yea the cover sucks but their tracks are m/ get ducked noob
Exsanguination Burial Rites
expected lame bdm, got slightly charred brutal melodeath. sweet
Fairyland Score to a New Beginning
has a lot of average duds but also has bangers like godsent, gates of morken, and title
Falconer Black Moon Rising
folky pm whose subtle power builds until the end of each track, a result of largely simple guitars and mathias' plain, casually joyful vocals. some handbacks to the mithotyn days as well, highlights in locust swarm and halls n chambers
FalKKonE Battles of World War II
an original track ep, its fine but nothing too crazy
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 4
a bunch of mid originals, with cannon in d minor unfortunately having nothing to do with canon, a great gsc champion cover, gasters theme is awesome, giratinas battle is pure win prob the best cover ive heard of it, and other assorted good-greats
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 17
zelda title always welcome, bara wa utsu is an unusual vocalized win, various tracks onwards are well done but unnotable, too much touhou, nyan cat with blast beats goes AHRD, anima is great
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 22
last occultism and faith is for... are amazing but way too many touhou covers. pokemon covers are great esp pixie trio, sonic n jojo covers are fine
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 24
great work as usual but waaaay too many hollow knight tracks. the sims 3 theme is w**h**ing awesome
FalKKonE The Intense Past
his original work isnt bad either
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers: Crescent
instrums are much better than the cringe lyric tracks with the vocals way too prominent in the mix to the point theyre practically different songs and go ahrd
FalKKonE Overheat
some cool orig pieces from the one n only falkkoooooooonnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. highlight in blazing heart
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 2
heartache is a masterpiece and a trv treasure, and maiden astraea is pretty good, but the rest leave something to be desired despite general good work. gerudo valley, my favourite zelda piece, somehow is less interesting in this style and it doesn't pack as much punch. the rest like wise, while well done, don't quite capture the imagination
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 6
bangers on this edition include fugue, doll judgment, and necrofantasia
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 25
another solid cover album featuring dbz
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 1
dont know most of these games but bloody tears, one winged angel n song of storms are excellent
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 5
solid adaptations with highlights in urf, piercing light, fight 2, clash bridge, and the glorious cover of team aqua magma leader
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 21
dont know most of these but luigis, strike, ofc megalo and unravel go ahrd
Fathomage Autumn's Dawn, Winter's Darkness
another in vogue modern epic folk bm. only has the magic on a few tracks, highlights in the masterpiece that is a dawnfire of old and the fiddle onward portion of moonlight shadow
Fellowship The Saberlight Chronicles
rly tows the line between great and plain, but enough here to solidify a jello-y 3.5, glory days is bomb though
Feminazgul No Dawn for Men
a nice indie bm album with varied accoutrements, accordion, backing opera vox, d beatings
Finntroll Nattfodd
solid folk rocks but only trollhammeren rly grips me
Finntroll Nifelvind
another solid folk met album, but nothing gripping this time
Finntroll Jaktens Tid
rough troll but the only real standout is krigsmjod
Finntroll Trollhammaren
fun ep, title n hemkomst are win
Finntroll Ur Jordens Djup
general trollyness with highlights in korpens, maktig, ormhaxan, n spira
Finntroll Rivfader Demo
awesome raw black finntroll like youve never heard
Finntroll Visor Om Slutet
some trv folky fun and lolz
Finsterforst Zum Tode Hin
finntroll x moonsorrow and better than both
Flames Summon the Dead
the trv flames playing trv thrash with trv deathvox, highlight in title
Flames Resurgence
a great present day thrash record highlight in resurgence
Flyleaf Memento Mori
a trv rock album. heavy production much improves quality tho it takes away from her voice unlike debut. but on a lot of tracks it works, finding stride in missing and not rly letting up too much afterwards. also get charged with kind, n then the banger trinity of treasure, circle, n arise. no idea wtf that cover is tho
Flyleaf Remember to Live
legit good acoustic ep
Fort Minor The Rising Tied
generally good rap n effects with remember the name being the only star
Frail Body Artificial Bouquet
krallice gone AHRD CORE
Franz Liszt Liebestraume, S.541
gentle and soothing nocturnes each augmenting into a powerful crescendo without losing their character
Franz Schubert 4 Impromptus, D.899
middling excitable yet morose impromptus of which ii and the famous iv are the most gripping
Frederic Chopin Fantaisie-Impromptu, Op. 66
quite a few awkward bits so i can somewhat understand him wanting to burn it but it's not actually bad at all, a tad more balance and less superficial diddlies and it could have worked out
Frosttide Awakening
amateurish but still decent siffyesque mdm. the poor souls waiting below
Frosttide Our Journey
good folky mdm in the siffy tradition
Frozen Crown The Fallen King
a pleasant power metal surprise. lovely male-female vox throughout, tho the harsh on some songs sucks. fail no more and shieldmaiden are highlights and < 3
Frozen Land Loser's Game
it doesnt start that great but that chorus is infectious and the harpsichord solo is pure win
Frozen Land King's a Bitch
just a plainly well written power metal track cant not follow them along
Fuath (USA) Glaciers of the Heart
combining classic ahrd rock riffs and black metal always works out well
Funebrarum The Sleep of Morbid Dreams
pretty good modern dm
Galneryus 毘藍ノ風/流転ノ陽
pure win anime metal
Galneryus Everlasting
title is one of their best ever songs, others a good-greats
Galneryus United Flag (Demo)
yama doesnt sound so good on this early demo but still rulz
Galneryus The Flag Of Punishment
too many flags on this album. anyway pretty solid pm debut with no anime
Galneryus Beyond the End of Despair...
lots of hits n misses but def on the favourable side
Galneryus One For All - All For One
tracks 1-3 are bomb followed by diverging mid to goods
Galneryus Union Gives Strength
starts weak, mid songs are great, rerecs good but why tho
Galneryus Between Dread and Valor
another solid release, run to the edge and with pride are the bangers
Galneryus Voices From the Past
an ep of covers like youve never heard them before. highlight in waiting for the night
Galneryus Hunting for Your Dream
theyre back to their former selves but nothing super epic
GAME FREAK Pokemon Sword & Shield
whatever else they missed on these games the soundtrack overall is pretty tight. 3 for the expansions tho, nevertheless my favourites are the title screen, gym leader theme obviously, marnie reg and final battle, spikemuth, battle piers, and galar birds battle
GAME FREAK Pokémon Blue & Pokémon Red
epic, best tracks are battle vs gym leader, ss anne, pokemon league, and ofc battle vs champion
Gamma Ray Land of the Free
excellent trad style pm without any highlights
Gates of Ishtar The Dawn of Flames
perpetual dawn is the only master class here but the general quality cant let it go less than 3.5
GBH City Baby Attacked By Rats
slightly crusty well produced trv punk
Gehenna Black Seared Heart (Demo)
the fragile beginnings of blasymph
Gehenna Ancestor Of The Darkly Sky
better prodded tracks from black seared heart
Gehenna Black Seared Heart
the fragile beginnings of blasymph with bonus tracks
Gehenna Unravel
a fair satanic mystique
George Frideric Handel 6 Grand Concertos, Op. 3 / HWV 312-317
normally handel sucks butts and i hate him but with the help of john walsh he can write a decent concerto, highlights in 312 i and 313 i
George Frideric Handel Music for the Royal Fireworks, HWV 351
i and iv are the main stars in this overall decent suite
George Frideric Handel Wassermusik, Suite nr. 3 in G-dur, HWV 350
a lofty short suite with too much flute. cant personally stand any movement but it gets up there and almost strikes gold at points
George Frideric Handel Wassermusik, Suite nr. 2 in D-dur, HWV 349
a great yet short suite with the famous ii movement justifiably so
Ghost (SWE) Opus Eponymous
love ghost. best cutesy goth rock band? best cutesy goth rock band
Ghost (SWE) Demo
good demo leading into the debut album, death knell very sabbathy
Ghost Bath Ghost Bath EP
screams too girly on apathy but good melody, lust is pure win, and some dece instrums
Ghosts of Atlantis Gardens of Athena
a lot better version of what they tried to do on lemuria
Girolamo Frescobaldi Fiori Musicali
the title by no means an empty boast, these organic perennials may be graciously plucked at leisure
Glacier (USA-OR) Ready for Battle
awesome 80s metal great prod for a demo
Glasya Attarghan
the narration is better than most actually since he adds a dark gruffness to it, an interesting story too set in ancient assyria. omg dual female-male vox. and shes a soprano fuck yeah, some growls epica style
Glasya Heaven's Demise
pretty good symphonic debut with a pretty cover. no exit from myself is a dream despite the dumb title omg her voice
God Dethroned The Grand Grimoire
pretty sweet blackened melodeath, highlight in title
Godflesh Godflesh
the most badass sludge dust of all time? the most badass sludge dust of all time
Gorement Obsequies...
trv if not amazing osdm
Gorgoroth Pentagram
Gorgoroth Promo '94
Gosia Andrzejewicz Wojowniczka
peak power pop, better than anything with britney's name on it, track 5 is dedicated to 99% of the sput population
Grailknights Return to Castle Grailskull
raw arghoslent style mdm by trv metal heroes, first half is pure win but they lose some power in the 2nd
Grand Belial's Key Kohanic Charmers
prayer shawl is an amazing track followed by their usual midgoodgreat often awkward guitar tone blundercesses
Grand Belial's Key Triumph of the Hordes
a more dmy gbk, bold emphasized melodies with a highlight in darkness throne
Grand Belial's Key The Tricifixion of Swine EP
a pretty great if short ep with black ram passing through several different avenues as a more epic track
Grave Into the Grave
an early standardized dm album, someone asks you what dm sounds like you hand em this, highlight in deformed
Graveworm (N)utopia
every band who makes a career out of music eventually hits their waterfall album, and this is gws. by no means unlistenable, this is a much more casual record than any of their previous wins, with more than the usual epic ballads. nothing is bad, nothing is excellent
Green Day American Idiot
title, holiday, boulevard, n september are eternal, this and btii are peak pop punk for the ages
Green Day Oh Love
o stfu cunts. the songs are still great and censored versions are always funny
Grenadier Trumpets Blare in Blazing Glory
diet arghoslent for the most part but the epic plight of the naath is special
Grenadier The Levant Sultanate
a lighter but equally good arghoslent
GROMS Ascension
trad/doom riffs (with some prog unfortunately) and death vox for JAYSUS. its an unusual mix but works quite nicely
Grot Beneath the Waves of Eternity
pretty good modern style raw meloblack with a highlight in moonglade (all but drumming done by a girl for all you simps out there ( ? ?? ?)
Grot Hymns of the Woodland
solid raw meloblack but nothing too gripping
Grotesque Incantation
title submit and blood runs are some great blackdeath why did they go on to make the worst albums in existence leading to the worst genre of all time
Gustav Leonhardt Bach: The Art of the Fugue
leonhardts playing cancels out the usual mundanity of the kunst but even he cant rly add any magic to it either, lovely hachord tone tho. xiii invers gets quite nice, canon hypason goes ahrd too; 831 is fine but i prefer it played on piano; 971 is an audible feast; 998 not particularly notable tho good energy to the allegro
Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor
pompous and fine but doesn't quite clutch, though the tsunami of iv stands out
Hate Awakening the Liar
solid modern dm
Haunter (USA-TX) Thrinodίa
this is the good shit even if they named themselves after a pokemon, wanted to go 4 but they had to throw in too many techdeth n prog sections and that made me sad
Heavy Load Stronger Than Evil
classic rockin metal from sweden
Heidevolk Wederkeer
first half is amazing folky rock, second half lets it fall to forgettables
Heidevolk Batavi
a more potent heidevolk with bangers like een nieuw and als de dood
Heidevolk Wodan heerst
a uniquely rich, vibrant track. you cant help but listen to the whole thing
Hellhammer Satanic Rites
a grungier version of venom with a darker tuning, hellhammer shouldve been a longer lasting project
Helloween My God-Given Right
fuck you guys this is fun as hell
Helloween Helloween
lots of hits and misses, first 3 tracks are solid, then down in the dumps is prob the goa despite the dumb name, a lot of good shit in skyfall
Helloween Straight Out of Hell
world of war is one of the best hellow songs, also have naba, stars, burning, thunder, asshole is lolz, and years, rest mid good
Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy
has some of their best tracks in king n silent rain
Helloween The Time of the Oath
generally good metulz with a highlight in we burn
Helloween Pumpkin Tracks
win compilation, dont run n esp march of time rock
Helloween Helloween EP
pure win hellow ep
Hellwitch Syzygial Miscreancy
obviously good deathrash but why tech, like why? all prog does is cockblock the flow of the trv
Helms Deep Treacherous Ways
an album straight outta the 80s heavy/power win
Henri Mulet Carillon-Sortie
a frolicking toccata featuring a dark excursion before all is set right again
Holy Blood Waves Are Dancing
great black folk, intense at times, flute can get annoying, closer title is epic as can be
Holy Moses Queen Of Siam
trv german heavy/thrash with a variety of influences. sum maiden, sum motorhead, sum cirith ungol, sum accept
Holy Moses Satan's Angel
sabbath riffs with the first recorded black metal vox before a trv thrash track in necropolis
Holy Moses Call of the Demon
title track is sabbath gone thrash with sabina's original trv vox, bloody adventure(s) is some trv thrash with respects paid to venom, dunno about the other 2 tracks
Hulder Verses In Oath
as suggested by the generic cover art a less ambitious project, its a fine individual bm album but doesnt have the magic of debut
Hulder The Eternal Fanfare
a more epic bathory style bm and it goes ahrd
Hypocrisy Osculum Obscenum
but the descent begins. stfu w those half assed screams
Hypocrisy The Final Chapter
best hypo bum since they went mdethy
Hypocrisy Pleasure of Molestation EP
a pretty good if not standout ep
Hypocrisy Inferior Devoties
tight pussy ep that sounds far younger than 1993
Hypocrisy Maximum Abduction (EP)
another great ep with carved up cementing its place
I Between Two Worlds
immortal lite, you can chill out n groove to it. highlights in warriors and battalions
Iced Earth Iced Earth
behold, iced earth!
Illuminandi Illumina Tenebras Meas
a double ep with english and polish versions of each song save english only hymn of all creation. theyre not as polished as their later lp would become, and quite a bit of awkward and fillery sections, but all the ideas and performance of an epic gothic folk/black metal album are there and driven heavily by that piercing violin. czterdziescia doba/the 40th day is especially creepy being satan's tempting and disparaging words to jesus
Illuminandi The Beginning...
a compilation of live and studio tracks from both an earlier, more amateur epoch as well as more mature solidly written later tracks. a lot of titles are different and there are no english versions despite english titles, very weird track order as well. overall a great audible history of a young band trying something new in metal
Illumishade Another Side Of You
ultra poppy djenty symph and its actually good?!?!? highlight in in the darkness
Illvilja The Bitter Longing
pretty chill atmoblack
Illvilja In Winters Cold
more good atmoblack that doesnt reach quite high enough to really stand out. hunger is the best track
Illvilja Skymningsdager
pretty good melodic atmoblack, vikingablod goes ahrd
Immortal Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
immortal's debut is chill and trv...with fire!!!!!
Immortal Pure Holocaust
sign for the norse hordes, storming through red clouds, eternal years, and as the eternity opens rip through the darkness and ice of blashyrkh, drums are insane
Immortal Battles in the North
Immortal Damned In Black
a much more straight forward and rockn rolla bm album yet thereby very fun
Immortal Immortal
Immortal Immortal (Demo)
death metal immortal and abbath with mighty bellows hotdamn
Immortal Souls IV: The Requiem for the Art of Death
instrum pieces thruout 3 good intro and bells; evil 3.5; nuclear 4 so groovy, amazing drums n fills; wept 4 another groovefest; absol 3 good melodies but too slow, some awkward riffs; rotting rye 3 good thrashy main riffs, terrible chorus, poor concept, garbage slow section at the end; last day 3 a chug a groove fest, but annoying chorus; hypnotic 4 a galloping horse of a track; thoughts 4 all around solid track; rose 3 good concept poor execution; requiem 3 not good but not terrible, not anywhere near as solemn as they meant it to be
Immortal Souls Ice Upon The Night
a lighter snowfall with icy riffs around the frozen lake highlighting in everwinter, sacrifice, and suicidalive
Immortal Souls The Cleansing
great raw mdm from the snowy finland
Impending Doom Nailed. Dead. Risen.
how they went from bdm to derpincore no idea. awesome cover, legit tunes n ghastliness
Impending Doom The Sin and Doom of Godless Men
actually good bdm holy shiiiiiiiiizzzzzzz
Imperanon Stained
first half was some great neoclassical melodeath then they just drop it and throw together a bunch of random shit ruining the 4 it was headed towards
Imperanon Imperanon
shadow souls is a great amateur mdeth track with inexperienced but still entrapping lady vox, vein is alright
In Flames Lunar Strain
flames' debut is a great start, though odd hearing stanne instead of anders. prob some of stanne's best efforts actually, edging on a black metal shriek. female vox clearly inexperienced but beautiful, love the extra instruments
In Flames Demo '93
the spark that ironically is a much bigger flame than anything post lunar strain
In the Woods... Heart of the Ages
to this day no one knows how the forest made these sounds, and whoever took the recording was never found.....
Incantation Scapegoat
canty still got it even in 2010 bb
Incantation Onward to Golgotha
a trv dm debut
Incantation Profane Nexus
its too doomy but damn if this doesnt sound straight out of 94
Incantation Dirges of Elysium
debauchery to prophecy solid af but then they just let it die, why
Incantation Diabolical Conquest
first half def lags behind the 2nd
Incantation Decimate Christendom
1st half is a lot more solid than the 2nd
Incantation Promo
sum ahrd raw deathdooms from the one n only incantation
Insomnium One for Sorrow
Inertia 3.5; Shadow 4; Song 3.5; Only One 4; Unsung 3.5; Every Hour 4; Decoherence 3; Lay the Ghost 3; Fire 2.5; Title 3.5
Insomnium Across the Dark
certainly the most forgettable of sommy's albums, yet not bad. whoever they hired to do their art from this point on was a mistake though
Insomnium Shadows of the Dying Sun
sommy continue their descent though its better than sorrow, highlights in sleep, black heart, words, river, and ephemeral, which sounds a lot tighter than the ep version, title track is garbo
Insomnium Winter's Gate
first half is pretty fire but then they get laidback and it fizzles out by the end
Insomnium Where the Last Wave Broke EP
excellent ep by the one n only sommy
Insomnium Anno 1696
standard nomnium
Intestine Baalism Banquet in the Darkness
and what a great feast
Intestine Baalism Ultimate Instinct
mostly just straight up tight dm, highlight in galaxy
Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast
best maiden, title to hills to my favourite im track in hallowed is such a jam
Iron Maiden Dance of Death
almost as good as beast, highlights in rainmaker, montsegur, face, age n journey
Iron Maiden Maiden England '88
they kill it live, going on for 2 hrs straight in their home country before any of their rly crappy albums existed
Iron Maiden Ed Hunter
some of maidens best along with your doom knockoff sir
Iron Maiden Best of the Beast
more or less what it says on the jewel case, dark n x factor tracks suck
Iron Maiden The Soundhouse Tapes
maiden having fun
Iron Maiden Beast Over Hammersmith
great beast of a show
Iron Maiden Live In Dortmund ´83
another great show
Iron Maiden The Early Days
some good shows, interesting enough history
Iron Maiden Live After Death
great show esp rime, continues on the history of maiden
J.J. Hrubovcak Death Metal Christmas
unrest rulz, earthern kings pretty good, best nutcracker performance ever, greensleeves not bad
Joe Hisaishi My Neighbor Totoro
pure audible innocence
Joe Hisaishi Spirited Away
take the movie with you especially amongst summer day, dragon boy, day of the river, and the masterpiece that is reprise
Joe Hisaishi Princess Mononoke
miyazaki's best, tho perhaps not hisaishi's. as iconic as tracks like legend of ashitaka and demon god are the same melody is used in too many variations and it could have used a few more epic themes
Johann Pachelbel Chaconne in D Major, P. 40
like a miniature hexachordum apollinis, it starts gentle, gets more confident, and plays softly before letting out the accumulated passion
Johann Sebastian Bach Violin Sonata No.3 in C major, BWV 1005
this violin solo concerto however sounds rather sullied and everyday in comparison to the others
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 BWV 1050a
while certainly not as refined as the piece it would become, a great listen nonetheless
Johann Sebastian Bach Toccata No.4 in D minor, BWV 913
too many slow filler parts but generally an amusing and mindful piano piece esp in the last third, screw derpmusiclog
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D major, BWV 1050
not the best bach but allegro i has enough moments to keep u engaged, and that harpiscord solo is badass af. affettuoso is completely forgettable and thankfully doesnt last too long, then some general epicness in allegro iii. whole piece would be better without the flute
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major, BWV 1046
a rather uninspired by the numbers concerto that luckily is saved by the allegro and parts of menuet
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F major, BWV 1047
in constrast to concerto 1 no. 2 starts excellent but proceeds generically
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 in G major, BWV 1049
another weaker concerto with highlights in iii
Johann Sebastian Bach Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068
a largely inoffensive suite with the ouverture the best piece, air is deservedly famous though too morose, and an ending gigue that reignites the rather lackluster iii and iv movements. generic background classical for your film
Johann Sebastian Bach Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067
i, ii, & vii are the bangers in this decent suite
Johann Sebastian Bach Violin Partita No.3 in E major, BWV 1006
rather mid bach that goes pleasantly enough along but never crescends to the sky
Johann Sebastian Bach Italian Concerto, BWV 971
perfectly adequate concerto, i is fun but iii lets it go
Johann Sebastian Bach Harpsichord Concerto No. 1, BWV 1052
i is rather plain until 2/3s of the way through, likewise th'adagio isnt particularly interesting, almost bored and lackadaisical, but its sins are amended somewhat in the fortuitous frolic of iii
Johann Sebastian Bach Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor, BWV 1043
i is plain insert elegant copyrightless background music here, ii isnt much better at first but builds into a more pronounced rotation, but iii brings bach back with a fairly revitalized allegro
Johann Sebastian Bach The Art of the Fugue, BWV 1080
the pedagogic nature of contrapunctus i-viii is gratingly evident as they invoke an intermediary student with ix finally emerging a degree of mastery and continuing onward, tho hearing the same subject again and again gets quite boring. honestly the canon variations play and hear much better in their simplicity. the unfinished fuga indeed unfinished, more like a lazy muse while brainstorming something more interesting complete with intentionally narcissistic pun
Johann Sebastian Bach Lute Suite in Eb Major, BWV 998
having written only a few pieces for lute, bach nonetheless hands you something to seduce, or be seduced by, your mistress. th'allegro goes ahrd
Johann Sebastian Bach Overture in the French style, BWV 831
bach revels in the french style
Johann Strauss II Tritsch-Tratsch Polka, Op. 214
obnoxious as hell and that's what makes it good
Johann Strauss II An Der Schönen Blauen Donau
as trite as it is mesmerizing, one cannot fail to give this waltz the ever-enduring credit it deserves
Johann Strauss II Éljen a Magyar!
very energetic, happy salute to hungary
Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op.90
movement iii is the star in this gen good symphony
Judas Iscariot Thy Dying Light
a step up from debut in the world of american trv
Judas Priest Ram It Down
jps first full metal album and their best, ascending the heavens and diving into the abyss, highlights in HEAVY METAL and the epic best jp track HARD IRONNNN
Judas Priest Invincible Shield
this is not an album by a 54 year old band most members of which are in their 70s, sounds like the debut of a present day heavy/pm band wtfff. last 3 tracks are disappointers tho was considering a 4 until they hit, bonuses are in the same vein
Jumpin' Jesus Demo
demo is carried by cloning the future, otherwise mid just trying it out dm
Kalmah Palo
Blood 3.5; Evil 3.5; World 3.5; Marsh 3; Take 3.5; Paystreak 3.5; Waiting in the Wings 3.5; Through 3.5; Erase 3.5; Stalker 4
Kalmah Svieri Obraza
not as good as their later more pompously produced editions but still top tier mdm m/
Keep of Kalessin Through Times Of War
a bit of an eclectic debut that hovers between basic bm n something special
Keep of Kalessin Skygger av sorg
a fair execution of every trope by 97 without distinguishing themselves
King Diamond Fatal Portrait
the natural extension of mf, diamond with more control produces a better album, candle is win
Koji Kondo The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time OST
a lot of powerful tracks mixed with a plethora of meh to eh dungeon synth, my favourites are title, market, lon lon, lost woods, fairy, kakariko, storms, meet zelda, beast form, g's tower, ofc gerudo valley, and staff creds medley
Korpiklaani Jylhä
u ppl are fucking stupid this is great esp levaluhta and tuuleton omg tuuleton so good
Korpiklaani Tervaskanto
easily their heaviest and thrashiest album, a relentless folk attack
Korpiklaani Manala
the most rock n roll of their albums, tuvilla and rauta are korpi classics surging into one of their best tracks in kuola, unfortunately mired by weaker slow/filler tracks, but this is still great fuck you guys
Krallice Go Be Forgotten
some nice spoopy tracks like forest n chaos on this one
Krallice Orphan of Sickness
decent more dmy krallice
Krampus Survival of the Fittest
eluveitie with some random techno additions and bad male cleans
Kreator Terrible Certainty
a step up from pleasure but not as good as debut, title and the last 2 tracks go aahhrrddd
Lacey Sturm Kenotic Metanoia
essentially a brand new flyleaf album. destroys her solo debut, competes with memento mori, highlights in wonderful, not your fight, and the lindsey violin assisted breathe with me (her violin rly accentuates + rulz on its own)
Lamp of Murmuur Saturnian Bloodstorm
a melolblack version of immortal highlight in title
Leaves' Eyes Njord
solid bum for the most part, highlights title through devil inclusive, and froyas theme
Leaves' Eyes King Of Kings
solid bum with a highlight in title
Leaves' Eyes Into Your Light
good track
Leaves' Eyes Across the Sea
simple but fun track
Leaves' Eyes Sign of the Dragonhead (EP)
good catchy tracks
Limbonic Art Promotion Tape 1996 [Demo]
candles and moon are mid good symphs while mourning mystique is a grand piece of cake
Limbonic Art Ad Noctum - Dynasty Of Death
limby finally gets serious and invokes a thoroughly good if not amazing blasymphony
Limbonic Art Spectre Abysm
another solid blasymph album after all these years
Lindsey Stirling Lindsey Stomp
transcendence is awesome, cage is weak, spontaneous is decent
Lindsey Stirling Lose You Now
lose you now is garbage in large part due to quacko, guardian is heavenly, what youre made up another garbage collaboration, torch bringer pretty good, embers is awesome too
Linkin Park Underground X
an ep more solid than any of their albums damn lp
Little V. Wants To Battle Again!
guzma theme slams ahrd, and zinnia, wally and n stand out
Little V. Wants To Battle
steps up most tracks with especially good covers of xerneas, kalos elite 4, lance, and esp the masterpiece that is blue holy shit listen to it now
Little V. Epic Metal Covers, Vol. 1
not as good as other covers ive heard but still killer instinct, squid sisters, and undertale stick out
Liturgy Aesthethica
liturgy makes me pee :D
Liv Kristine Libertine
what pop would sound like if it were good, solve me, silence and title track stand out on overall quality
Lord (FRA) Hell's Fucking Metal
lord abandon and recultivate their symphonic talents to create...a competent but ununique classic bm album
Lord Belial Kiss the Goat
a young bm band still in the amateur stage just trying to get something recorded towards the legacy of their forebears, not quite understanding the kvlt as that silly title shows. prod is too light, songs not quite structured, random not rly additive flute. still not in any way a bad effort and they use this experience to blow out a masterpiece the next time
Lord Belial Unholy Crusade
lord belial is completely streamlined by their third album culminating in a silly album cover. still its a solid slab of late 90s bm with their usual sideshow effects
Loudblast Sensorial Treatment
france's first dm band's debut is a righteous effort, highlights in les serre-livres + from beyond
Ludovico Einaudi Eden Roc
generally well set piano pieces (and a few strings), nefeli is magic
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67
the famous first movement is all you need, the rest don't even try to touch upon it
Ludwig van Beethoven "Grand" Piano Sonata No. 4 in E♭ major, Op. 7
a pleasant sonata climaxing robustly in movement iv
Ludwig van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 19 in G Major, Op. 49
short and sweet sonata
Ludwig van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 22 in F major, Op. 54
a virtuosic and fanciful sonata that yet lacks heavy engagement
Ludwig van Beethoven Violin Sonata No.5 in F major, Op.24
i is almost annoying as good with how it's been overplayed, the trv star here is iv
Ludwig van Beethoven Große Fuge, Op. 133
panned in his day, it really shouldnt have been. sure its a little awkward, but the man was deaf and at the end of his career, why shouldnt he pull a metallica/lou reed?
Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No. 13 in B♭ major, Op. 130
i is great, ii-iv are rather plain, v is moot lethargy, vi is glorious and thank god his publisher made him replace grosse fuge with it
Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No.12 E-flat Major,Op127
i is a decent easy goer without anything trvly standout, ii inoffensive, rather bland, iii is the star, an old shiner looking back at beety's prolific career, finally iv keeps the momentum and yields a satisfying if trite conclusion
Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No. 16 in F major, Op. 135
as birb boy said but with a trv rating. simple delights esp in i, the required sombre but not too melodramatic iii, and iv pulling it all together, an old master continuing to compose out of cultured habit without any need to conquer
Luke Faulkner The Scepter'd Isle
excellent renditions
Luke Faulkner The Wanderer
generally sombre but wanderer and eastern winds are win
Luke Faulkner Rachmaninoff: Morceaux de Fantaisie
well executed
Majestica Metal United
pretty good piercekey led track
Make a Change...Kill Yourself Make a Change...Kill Yourself
if i kill myself how will enjoy this fantastic album?
Manegarm Nordstjärnans Tidsålder
amateur production n instrumentation make this a brash but still worthwhile listen
Mannheim Steamroller Christmas
a short album of wonderful carol instrumentals, highlight in the closer stille nacht
Manowar Kings of Metal
good mix of classic rock n metal that'll kick ya ass
Manowar Warriors of the World
too much opera but still rulz, esp call to arms, the cover of nessun dorma, and hand of d00m
Mantas Death by Metal [Demo]
the horrid recording makes everything but the solos and heavier riffs hide in the fog but even in this state i cannot resist evil dead
Mantas Rehearsal #1 (Emotional)
dunno whats so emotional about it but legion of doom is where mayhem got deathcrush and both evil dead recordings rule tho the prod is much better on take 1, then the 2 recordings of the band track also rule with the much longer take 2 obviously more fleshed out
Marduk Memento Mori
actually a pretty solid album with enough variations to keep it interesting enough. highlight in the flight of the bumblebee imitating blood of the funeral
Marrasmieli Martaiden mailta
very mid until frozen north brings it up
Marthe Further In Evil
only poseurs would compare this to bathory and only fascists would hail anything in the first place. tracks 1-4 are amazing heavy/tremz wins with tristessa vox and it looked like an easy 4, but then those last couple tracks yikes, her cleans are horrible on them and not in a good way
Masfel Katasztr​ó​fam​á​mor
these were really cool funky melting pot rocks
Massacre Inhuman Condition
a lesser but still decent massacre with a random but welcome cronos appearance on a warhead cover (is it a cover if it has the actual writer on it tho?) yet despite such is very inferior to the original and cronos' wild ooooooaaaaaargghhhhs sadly dont make up for it
Master Rehearsal Demo
slice of dm history life with a young band talking between trying to get their shit straight
Master Faith Is In Season
ok so this one is a bit weird, they keep the general style of the last album, alright, a mix of groove n thrash, but this one is much more dynamically thrash with the groove bits actually well integrated. gets a bit grindy and punky too, again only slightly ghostly dm mainly in the grunty vox
Master Saints Dispelled
new little drummer boy is p good tho a lot of it is dbeats, a lot of surging riffs, paul's voice is a grunty shout thats serviceable esp at his age but not especially dmy, highlights in the pure win that is footsteps of doom and title
Mayhem Chimera
as if gdw didnt make abundantly clear mayhem is now an entirely different band, and in 2004 thats not a bad thing. thankfully the overprog fascination of gdw is satiated and this release harkens back to their kvlt origin days while very much creating a new sound, light yet satisfyingly intense bm with tasteful prog riff sections creatively and skillfully integrated, an unapolegetic and in your face bass, and maniac sounding just like his name implies. highlights in rape humanity with pride and the bass driven impious devious leper lord
Mayhem Pure Fucking Armageddon
Mayhem Wolf's Lair Abyss
the resurrected mayhem is, well, zombified. a brand new guitarist means completely new riffs, and from here on they would become prog infested, untrv rot mixed in with the black ichor. RIP dead, RIP euronymous
Mayhem Deathrehearsal
great ahrd death metal and jam sessions
Mayhem Live in Bischofswerda
having to rely mostly on their classic tracks the new line up has a great set, and the new tracks dark past n esp labyrinth go ahrd
Mayhem Life Eternal
5 roughmixes from the recording of de mysteriis when attila was adding vocals, they rly emphasize how attila is the worst bm vocalist oat, fortunately the trv inlaid into the core of these songs by euronymous will always be dominant and funeral fog still has its original hellhammer intro
Mayhem Studio Tracks
THE TRV MAYHEM now with production
Mayhem Freezing Moon
deads only studio tracks in squeaky clean production
Mayhem Ancient Skin / Necrolust
the first mayhem release without any dead, euronymous, or varg, and it goes ahrd m/
Mayhem Necrolust / Total Warfare
nice crusty rec of necrolust
Mayhem Live in Jessheim
lesser quality than their other shows but they still go AHRD
Mayhem Fuck You!!!!
v early instrumental recordings of their initially dm oriented songs, plus some cool covers showcasing their formative inspiration
Medieval Steel Medieval Steel
title track is pure win followed by some well done but not exciting 80s butt
Megadeth Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!
easily the best album to come out of the big four, some trv trash n songwriting seen little in any of their discogs with added humour
Mercyful Fate Melissa
everything priest wish they could be
Messiah Choir of Horrors
a more crystal vadery deicide dm highlight in title
Metallica Kill 'Em All
a great start for american thrash but one they would never attempt to replicate or build upon, met's only real thrash album
Metaphobic Demo 2021
legit osdm in the 2020s. cant wait for the first album
Metsatoll Hiiekoda
the kalevala style tracks are great amongst half assed folk diddies
Mgla Presence
mgla started slappy and never stopped
Mgla Necrotic
about as good as a bm demo can get
Mgla Groza
pretty plain until iv
Mgla Age of Excuse
the final mg?a album is solid but otherwise unappealing
Michael W. Smith Glory
an instrumental album thats basically a classical imitation elevates this far above any of his other shit
Midnattsol Midnattsol
some great tracks though desolation is somewhat awkward
Minor Threat Minor Threat
minor threat rulz
Minor Threat First Two 7"s
in my eyes diminishes this somewhat but self titled and extra tracks go ahrd
Misthyrming Algleymi
krallice x modern behemoth, modern bm that goes pretty damn ahrd and the folksy bits arent bad either
Molecular Corporation Millions of Dead Menposters
sput's got talent and i am simon cowell. legit good tunes with 3+ yeses going to wet velvet - sheer, johnnys track, and the heist revenge - concave love. but i split a golden buzzer for betweentheskye - hypertrance and especially waves ablaze - into the blaze as they get added directly into my library
Monstrosity Imperial Doom
george was never a great vocalist but holy balls does he sound so much better with an actual dm band behind him
Mooncitadel Onyx Castles and Silver Keys
Moonlight Sword Elfenwinter
dungeon synth with the bm as an aside, its not bad at all but nothing spectacular, highlight in lament of dead wolves
Moonsorrow Tulimyrsky
competent black n folk parts but the 30 min track rly just sounds like 5 smaller tracks hashed together, covers are meh
Moonsorrow Kivenkantaja
good balance of folk n black, just nothing superior save kaupunki
Moonsorrow Verisäkeet
typical moonsorrow, highlight in pimea
Morbid December Moon
some of the earliest and trvest material ever recorded, and one of the few records with dead on vox. LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, BITCH!
Morbid Angel Altars of Madness
classic dm debut offering trv metal to the masses
Morbid Angel Complete Acid Terror
was gonna say it aint dm wo the vox but damn they go ahrd esp title. whats with the 1s u cucks
Morser Two Hours To Doom
death grind best grind
Mortification Mortification
raw deathrash in vein of seven churches with better vox but weaker writing overall
Mortification Scribe of the Pentateuch
what daaaa fuuuuuuuqqqqqqqqq. best release since scrolls, scribe includes deathrash wins like extradiefor and title, at times going full dm like the good old days with real riffs, solos, and melodies. its like the older steves gotten the more hes realized he needs to put out real shit
Mortification Ancient Prophecy / Overseer
prophecy is a decent dm epic u dont rly need to hear again, overseer is awesome, butchered is one of mortys best tracks, crusaders is meh
Mortiis Født til å Herske
some soothing dark ambientiis
Mortiis Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør
dark ambiental times
Motorhead Snake Bite Love
despite their self criticism this is easily mheads most powerful rocker with a highlight in the song lemmy hated the most, night side
Motorhead We Are Motorhead
a great follow up to snake bite, another album that rocks AHRD
Motorhead The World Is Yours
a very solid golden years album rocker after rocker
Motorhead Motorhead EP
the star self titled tracks of their first 4 albums defining everything motorhead is
Mutiilation Vampires of Black Imperial Blood
vampire bm rulz, highlight in magical shadows of a tragic past
Naglfar Vittra
some decent meloblack without anything captivating. bonus 12 rising and evil men cover are pretty good though
Naglfar Sheol
a fair meloblack to sit side by side with necrophobic
Naglfar Cerecloth
a final solid meloblack shot straight from the naggles
Napalm Death From Enslavement to Obliteration
fixing their prod issues reveals the face of trv deathgrind
Narjahanam Demo
atmospherical doomy araby blackened death jams
Nasty Savage Nasty Savage
a pure metal album showcasing trad piled on with thrash and some emergent death highlights in no sympathy, gladiator, and asmodeus
Necrophagia Season of the Dead
necrophagia eat more than they animate and so their zombie army is considerably weaker in force than the other early necromancers
Necrophagia The Divine Art of Torture
great halloweeny deathrash
Necrophagia Power Through Darkness
a lot of vocal experimentation but still in deathrash territory
Necrophobic Bloodhymns
another collection of competent but not stellar deathy mdms
Necrophobic Tour EP 2003
random tracks from their first four albums and then some pretty good but lesser covers
Necrophobic The Nocturnal Silence
classic dm with some congruent melodies n atmospheric effects
Necrophobic Spawned by Evil
a good track, slayer sucks, venom and bathory covers win m/
Necrophobic The Third Antichrist
gud swedish meldeath that said a proper fuck you to gothenburg
Necrophobic Slow Asphyxiation
competent but not outstanding dm like all their early albums
Necrophobic Unholy Prophecies [Demo]
sum gnarly dm
Necrophobic Satanic Blasphemies
the dm demos are much better than their silly mdm ep
Necrophobic The Infernal Depths of Eternity
pretty good mdm track
Necrophobic Mark of the Necrogram
solid blackened melodeath without any highlights
Necrophobic Dawn of the Damned
one final p good but not engaging mdm
Necrophobic In the Twilight Grey
yep same old necrophobic, another album steadily and awkwardly fixed between average and excellent, you want to rly dig it but they make it impossible. everyday throw-somthin-on melolblack
Neurosis Pain of Mind
my god their thrash punk roots are so much better than anything they ever did later, whyd u prog losers and metal haters have to murder them so
Nightrage Abyss Rising
this is...actually good?!?!? damn just goes to show no lindberg less problems. guy tries to imitate the scream but he cant do it bc he knows how to scream properly and the riffs are there
Nightwish Endless Forms Most Beautiful EP
pretty good guess i should listen to the album ha
Nile Those Whom the Gods Detest
the best thing to come out of the nile
Nile Vile Nilotic Rites
some damn solid dm from the egyptian gods
Nile Ramses Bringer of War
ahrd ejeeptan metalz
Nitro O.F.R.
cant not be affected by this. high energy, some real metal riffs in there, king diamond vox rampaging like theyre going out of style
no metal in this battle paprika
some cool funky post mrocks
no metal in this battle the husky tape
rly cool melodious post rock with a nice dogge =D
Nokturnal Mortum To the Gates of Blasphemous Fire
traded in most of their soft folk elements for straight up bombastic bm. not bad but not the greatest either, save on the moonlight path
Nokturnal Mortum Black Clouds over Slavonic Lands (Demo)
raw nokt is gud nokt
Non Est Deus Impious
pretty good trad bm sounding like a more melodic version of dark funeral
Norther Death Unlimited
fucking love norther. the atmosphere of siffy, the maturity of bodom, and the virtuosity of neither. norther is the best worst band and fuck you if you don't like it. highlights on this album include title and fallen star
Norther Dreams of Endless War
what a debut from the one and only norther. highlights include darkest time, title, and the final countdown cover. bodom comparisons are completely unfounded bodom sounds infinitely better and north sound far more like a more direct siffy anyway
Novembers Doom The Pale Haunt Departure
great variety of gothicky doom, sommyish mdm and acoustics highlight in title
Numenor Make the Stand
pretty great ep, make the stand with hansi and dragon erebor are winners
Numenor Draconian Age
not the best mdm but i'll take it. sounds like it was made in the 2000s
Numenor Chronicles from the Realms Beyond
some pure power metal, mostly melodeath with a tinge of black, numenor make another unique if not stellar album with highlights in heart of steel and moria
Numenor Tales from the Edge of Time
a collection of crystal production early bg classics, with more manly vox
Numenor Majesty
fun tracks, blind guardian covers much superior to originals, hansi actually sounds good on make the stand
Obituary Cause of Death
no, death caused you. a lesser but still actual death metal death album
Obituary Darkest Day
some pretty damn tight deathrash their best since cod for sure
Obtained Enslavement The Shepherd and the Hounds of Hell
so oe go on a rampant self parody employing fair enough blasymphonic compositions but accoutred with silly theatrics and devil sex
Old Man's Child In the Shades of Life
old trvish bm but not worth a ton writing home about
Old Man's Child Ill Natured Spiritual Invasion
dimmu borgir x kalmah highlight in dream ghost
Old Man's Child The Pagan Prosperity
jilted but still win meloblack
Omnium Gatherum Beyond
Luoto 3.5 amazing instrum; New D 4; Rim 3; Night 2.5 mostly a long nothing; Formidable 3; Sonic 3.5; Who Could 4; Unknow 3; Living 4.5; White 2.5 another long nothing. subdivisions cover is garbage
Omnium Gatherum Grey Heavens
The Pit 3.5; Skyline so simple but so good omg 4; Frontiers also simple but so fuckin good one of their best songs 5; Majesty 3.5 rare that i should be giving such a track such a score; Rejuvenate 4; Foundation ugh idk its good but bad but good but slow honestly cant go higher than 3; Great Liberation 3.5 but that piano sequence is horrible; Ophidian same deal as foundation 3; Title decentish instrum 3; Storm Front 3.5
On Thorns I Lay On Thorns I Lay
nomnium x behemoth x akerfeldt vox, highlight in newborn skies
Origin Origin
origin originated originally original
Paladin (CAN) Purification du Mal
modern style autopsy from quebec. the guitar tone sounds light and grungy yet surely death metal all the same. the grooves are killer, but overall too doomy. l'ordre, brule, and title rule m/
Paladin (USA) Demo 2017
not a bad demo at all, great prod, iron maiden with death growls
Pan-Amerikan Native Front Little Turtle's War
pretty good modern bms but nothing essential
Panopticon The Rime of Memory
lengthy krallicecore with a nice violin highlight in the latter half of winters ghost but stop ruining atmosphere with idiot political quotes k thx
Pathfinder Fifth Element
they definitely push the boundaries of pm as far as they can without breaking it. works in some places, not in others. the day is the best track, otherwise pretty standard/ruined by prog/dumb shit to try to stand out
Pathfinder The Beginning
ancient rocks is a great survey of some of the best in pm, riffs from rhapsody n dforce with a chorus stolen straight from tyr, sons is a mid good track
Pentagram (CL) Rehearsal Tape
absolute shit recording nevertheless the deathrash shines thru and goddamn that solo on summoned to the grave
Pentagram (CL) Demo #2
again ahrd thrashers with amazing production tho it does get a bit slow. did they just not have more cash for studio time or what?
Pentagram (CL) Fatal Prediction / Demoniac Possession
another couple great production mainly thrash sum deth tracks esp demon poss goes AHRD
Pentagram (CL) Demo #1
much more thrash than death with kind of annoying shout vox but amazing production for a demo and the riffs in the 2nd half rule butts
Pentagram (CL) Past, Present and Future
solid dm compilation with a silly evil dead cover
Pestilence Consuming Impulse
classic trv death clone dm
Pestilence Malleus Maleficarum
essentially being a clone of death means a clone of trv dm m/
Possessed Demo 1985
Possessed Death Metal
seven churches but not as good
Power Quest Wings of Forever
power quest is win, tracks 1-4 go ahrd n the rest carry it thru
Power Quest Neverworld
moar solid pms with highlight in title
Primitive Graven Image Celebrating Impending Chaos
big step up from their debut, solid flawlessly produced modern bm with some tricks up their sleeve
Primordial Serpent Ascension of the Dark Age
good but not stellar canadian bm
Psychostick Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3
the most appropriate use of mccore ever, srsly they have 10x the talent, very funny ;)s and parodies throughout while making very trv points, nothing about space vampires or zombie dinos until the end tho
Pyotr Tchaikovsky "Souvenir de Florence", Op. 70
nothing terrible but nothing too inspiring either
Pyotr Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in B♭ Minor, Op. 23
some very brilliant passages esp. across i, but it needs major editing for fluid enjoyment
Quest Master Lost Songs of Distant Realms: Volume One
Quo Vadis Day Into Night
a decent album like a more thought out heartwork
R.A.V.A.G.E. Rotting in Hell
the trv atheist ravaging amongst the swamp of noize, raw but still emergent trv death metal
Ragnarok Diabolical Age
proceeding after giving it your all in a masterpiece like arising realm is a difficult thing to do, and ragnarok are not immune from the effects of third album syndrome. its an intense melodic bm release but tries far too hard without really delivering, best on title track
Ragnarok Collectors of the King
while certain og blapsymph bands give in to the laid back poppy atmosphere of the 2000s only the likes of ragnarok stay relatively close to the trv
Ragnarok Malediction
like a necrophobic album nothing rly wrong with it yet nothing exciting either
Ragnarok In Nomine Satanas
first few tracks are a watered down version of their former selves but they pull up from that nosedive to reach a respectable height once again, highlights in beast and prince
Ragnarok (UK) Of Ages
remastered 1991 demos as well as a few off raven god, fortuna from oaken heart and heart of steel cover from domgeorn, plus unreleased river of life. both legions of death rule alongside samhain and sons of odin
Raskasta Joulua Raskasta joulua IV
fun metallized christmas songs all in wonderful SUOMILAINEN highlights in joulun sanoma, joulumuisto edited, jouluyo edited, and kuului laulu
Raven Rock Until You Drop
nonstop infectious energy
Ravencult Morbid Blood
title, winds of damnation, and unspoken oath are some great rockers, everything else competent but largely average modern bm
Red (USA) End of Silence
a nu/alt album largely successful bc it follows a simple hard rock formula rather than said nu/alt bullshit. lol @ all the simps unable to handle the omg christians
Rhapsody of Fire Rain of a Thousand Flames
best rhapsody overall to this point, queen rules, the 2 min actual instrum part of angel rules, elnors magic valley lennyface, poem minus the dialogue rulz too
Rhapsody of Fire The Frozen Tears of Angels
solid rof, operatics arent overdone, ahrd riffs, composed well
Rhapsody of Fire Eternal Glory
pure win lofi pm demo
Rinaldo Alessandrini Frescobaldi: Fiori musicali
a lighter and more thorny garden, nonetheless all the rosy
Rose Avalon Universe (EP)
excellent folky ep that makes me feel like a princess
Rothadas Rothadás
p good os deathdoom ep
Rothadas Kopár Hant... Az Alvilág Felé
p competent but not overly exciting deafdoom
Runeshard Shadowbane
disappointing compared to their earlier release but title track makes up for the down sides
Rusted Shut Rehab
a piercing noisecore/sludge album that pretty much rocks from beginning to finish
Sabaton Carolus Rex (Swedish Version)
everything is better in swedish, highlights everything from en livstid to ett slag
Sabaton Coat of Arms
pretty good sabaton with highlights in screaming eagles Ca-CAW BITCH, aces in exile, wehrmacht, and white death with its hawt bodomy solo section
Sabaton The War To End All Wars
my epic review is epic. highlights in stormtroopers, unkillable soldier, lady of the dark, and christmas truce
Sabaton World War Live: Battle of the Baltic Sea
concerts across the baltic is pretty badass, lots of swedish and sounds like a fun time, world war tour is just like any other live album tho
Sabaton Swedish Empire Live
pretty damn good live album joakim is hype
Sabaton Stories from the Western Front
a great ep featuring some more recent tracks and despite the boring slog of a motorhead cover
Sacrilege GBG Lost in the Beauty You Slay
dt without the silly prog structures and flames without the feather touch ie gud melodeath
Sad Legend The Revenge of Soul
whack ass album from korea that goes from mccorey bm fusion to straight meloblack to ultimately folk black a la illuminandi, chorus to elegy of slaughter sounds just like separate ways
Samuel Barber String Quartet Op. 11
best movement overall is i, the famous adagio for strings is only win during the climax, iii pretty unnotable
Sarcofago I.N.R.I.
raw charred all guts dm highlight in satanic lust
Satan's Host Metal from Hell
raw amateur maideny/ungoly trv metal from the heart, highlights in title and king of terror
Satan's Host Archidoxes of Evil
14 years later a crushing doom and death jumble, also dat ASS!!!
Satyricon Dark Medieval Times
Satyricon The Shadowthrone
satyricon amp up their storytelling with the tale of the shadowthrone through synthified bm
Satyricon Intermezzo II
a great ep at the peak of their creative n harsh prowess
Satyricon The Forest Is My Throne
Saxon Crusader
maideny venomy rockers
Saxon Strong Arm of the Law
ahrd classic metal rockers
Saxon Shore Four Months of Darkness
four (five?) months of instrumental bliss
Sepultura Morbid Visions
quiet production muzzles a lot of the power of this early deathrash
Sepultura Bestial Devastation
the mousey production doesnt stop the deathrashy goodness from rampaging through
Serenity in Murder The First Frisson of the World
a symphonic japanese arch enemy, unsurprisingly much better than arch enemy tho a bit corey
Sergei Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64
a bit long, but flows better than a lot of ballets. only thing worth keeping though of course is montagues & capulets
Sergei Rachmaninoff Morceaux de fantaisie, Op. 3
generally fanciful movements with i-iii more heavy than the iv, v
Sinergy Beware The Heavens
kimberly goss is actually a rly good singer/keyboard player. alexi is on autopilot for the most part, either saving it for bodom or his riffs just not meant to take over kims pieces. highlights in warrior princess and virtual future (which has legit bodom riffs)
Sirannon Forgotten Laments of the Forsaken
some decent meloblack a la later astarte but def not above ep quality. tracks 3 and 4 are the best
Sirenia Perils of the Deep Blue
pretty impressive for whats essentially a 2 man band. even the weaker tracks still have a careful quality to them that prevents them from taking it down too much. seven widows is a jam, ditt endelikt is suprisingly jammy given its led by some avg clean male vox, and decadence is the funnest track followed by nothing amazing but nothing poor either save that epic blizzard chorus
Skalmold Baldur
among the lesser but still goodish folk mutuls, they try ahrd but dont exhibit anything essential, daudi naturally is the best track
Skalmold Med Vaettum
prob their best album yet nothing addicting
Skeletonwitch Beyond the Permafrost
polished 80s thrash with early kalmah vox, whats not to dig?
Skillet Unleashed
lmao the average on here is ridiculous. they finally found a consistent and energetic sound, the only bad track is saviours. everything else is nonstop party moshpit worthy and when its perfected like it is on here there's nothing wrong with that. doesnt have any of those awkward ass riffs or pauses that kill the rest of the song like on all their other albums. tons of jen ledger vox too making this easily their best album. bonus you get me high is a simpler better executed better than drugs. set it off isnt bad either
Skillet Feel Invincible Remix EP
kellr n blastforever remixes are pretty sweet. lol @ the remix ep virgins below
Skinless Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead
starts amazing with overlord and unilateral disgust and had me thinking can this possibly be good techdeath with thoughtful riffs and fills?! but then they proceed to ride the more generic train and it takes it down. sabbath cover was pretty funny though
Skyforger Semigalls' Warchant
silly vox but overall fun folky times highlight in night of the winter solstice
Skyforger Kurbads
a weird trad metal/mdm/full on folk offering whose first 4 tracks bang ass but the rest droop to mid goods, also mediocre vox n what is that cover lmao
Skyforger Kauja Pie Saules
pretty good black folk effort
Skyforger Perkonkalve
another dece to p good bum without any trv ear worms
Skyforger Lec, Eglīte
groovy tunes n badass/sexy video but where are the grooowwwwwllllllllssss?????
Slania Proof of Existence
a goth/symph album with minimal instrumentation. canela's voice, while very lovely and rightly put centre stage, cannot carry the band by itself however, but a nice light listen. highlights in losing everything, bleeding diamonds, willing aim, and wake world with its partially spanish lyrics
Slaughter (CAN) Meatcleaver
the prod is total hash but any nonposeur wont mind. punky thrash like venom but canadian and some emergent dm elements. highlights in the trifecta of children of the fire, hell hath returned, and the hilarious and wonderful title track
Slaughter (CAN) Nocturnal Hell
a great short but sweet little deathrash ep
Slayer Hell Awaits
more death metal rhythms and araya's HHEEEEEEELLLLLL bellow is legit, easily slayers best
Slechtvalk At The Dawn of War
christian bm bands all seem to fall into the same generic bm slump, and indeed gone is the magic of debut n sophy with the symph elements underused and trite, EXCEPT THE MAGNIFICENT CLOSER CRIES OF THE HAUNTED
Slechtvalk A Forlorn Throne
generic modern bm with some chanting until the last few tracks, doesnt compete with any of its predecessors, bonus track has bagpipes tho
Slechtvalk Where Wandering Shadows And Mists Collide
a not bad meloblack folk influences album with 90s callings all over it highlight in we are
Sodom Agent Orange
classic german thrash
Sodom Obsessed by Cruelty
classic lofi deathrash, highlights in nuctemeron n pretenders

raw hurtling unstoppable fire of all the nascent extreme metal universe

to think this was supposed to be a full album, fully produced blacky deathy thrash
Sodom Days of Retribution
dont even care sodom is just fun
Sonata Arctica Silence
like the cover a dichotomy between sunny bangers and sloggy midgoods. still weballergy, san sebastian, and wolf & raven are some of the best tracks theyve ever done and in existence
Sonata Arctica Songs of Silence
decent song selection
Sonata Arctica Don't Say a Word
pretty good song selections/covers
Sonata Arctica Successor
excellent song selection, covers, live trax
Sonata Arctica Clear Cold Beyond
not in love with it like their nascent albums but its pretty damn good and the sonarc i used to know, best tracks are cure for everything, angel defiled, and the most metal lullably oat in best things
Soporific Sorcery Sarcophagus Symphony II
first half isnt too amazing but from these dreams and final rest synth ahrd
Sounds of the Dead Records A Brutal Christmas - The Season In Chaos
a trvly brvtal christmas indeed, various metal styles with highlights in angels we have heard and kekals god rest ye

Spectral Drug Exercises in Futility (Mgla Synthwave Cover)
cool adaptation, v goes so ahrddddd
Spectral Voice Sparagmos
death metal x fundoom? genius
Stephane Hirondelle Bio Technology
pretty calming chill feelgood back beats like sthg found in a ghibli movie
Stormbringer Stealer of Souls
trv heavy metal that enjoys thrash now and again. silence is a straight up better version of holy wars wonder who copied whom
Stormbringer Stealer of Souls (Compilation)
their only 2 releases together. win band, win album
Stormkeep Lost Relics
sum pretty good burzums
Stormlord The Gorgon Cult
dance of hecate is some sexy blasymph and moonchild is the best maiden cover ever amongst overall quality
Stormlord Supreme Art of War
its fucking rough and a little embarrassing esp the vox but still good stuff, age of the dragon is the only complete track though
Stormlord The Curse of Medusa
some great rough versions leading up to utopia
Stormlord Far
a pleasant surprise after the droning theatres of their last couple albums, the songwriting is tight and the symph elements know their place, a lot of classic bm with modern production
Stortregn Finitude
techy melobleath that actually flows
Stratovarius Visions
the harpsicord tracks on this make it rock so hard
String Player Gamer Undertale: Strings of Determination Vol. 3
hopes and dreams/save the world is majestic, the rest well done but not as intimate
String Player Gamer Undertale: Strings of Determination Vol. 1
has some of the lesser/more trolly tracks so not as solid as it could be but ending with beautiful renditions of asgore and megalovania makes it impossible to rate this any less
String Player Gamer Undertale: Strings of Determination Vol. 2
this one has beautiful renditions of home, heartache, and battle against a trv hero, but also unfortunately a bunch of filler/dialogue tracks leaving the album somewhat nonplussed
String Player Gamer UNDERTALE: Strings of Determination (Complete Edit
certain tracks are much well adopted than others, the stars including asgore, megalovania, home, heartache, battle trv, hopes n dreams, save the world and finale. comes with a few new tracks not on the original albums
String Player Gamer Restart
highlights on this include mm3 title, snake man theme, and starlight zone with general quality throughout
String Player Gamer Legend of Zelda Ultimate Medley
high quality snippets of every main zelda theme, using a variety of instruments. listen to this to get the flavour of everything zelda
Suffocation Pierced from Within
weaker vox more generic riffs n too much doominess bring this record down a lot
Suffocation Pinnacle of Bedlam
suffy dropping mad modern dm beats
Suffocation Breeding the Spawn
suffy bring it up on their sophy with highlights in repulsion n anomalistic
Suffocation Souls to Deny
another solid suffy my pers favs being souls n surgery
Suffocation Surgery of Impalement
title is legit ahrd dm, 2nd track is just cc worship, 3rd track is a tight chuggy closer
SuidAkrA Lupine Essence
raw amateurish meloblack/death with some folk n atmos, highlights in dragon tribe and heresy
SuidAkrA Lays From Afar
dece-good blackish mdms with highlights in well of might, wasted lands, n title

better synths n atmosphere, highlight in grey company
Summoning Oath Bound
beleriand n land of dead are the stars here, starts weak but gets goin n doesnt stop
Summoning Nightshade Forests
pretty damn good summoning ep, ends too soon
Svarga (RUS) Where the Woods Slumber...
a weird but fun folk metal album
Swashbuckle Back To The Noose
fun piratey thrash/death/mdm album with silly/folk interludes, first half of the album goes ARRRRGGGHHH more than the second

amateur 2000s dimmu imitating blasymph, not super great but a highlight in of ways circular
Tartaros The Grand Psychotic Castle
halloweeny black symph with theremin keys, highlight in dark red light upon the bomos
Tartaros The Heritage from the Past
a rougher more wild dark medieval times with about as much power
Taylor Davis The Anime and Game Collection
most of these i dont know so i cant tell how faithful/how good it is compared to the original, however wilys castle and merry go of life are good, attack on titan theme, lilium and angel beats are great, and finally path of the wind is amazing
Temnozor (RUS-1) Horizons...
first few tracks are amazing black folk but then they go much more plain folk and only fatherland is worth picking out
Testament The Legacy
metallica if they remained trv. highlights in over the wall, raging waters, and apocalyptic city
Testament Demonic
whoa is this deathrash bellow here to stay? carryin on the groovethrash and it goes AHRD
Testament Low
pantera thrash and its actually rly good what the hell never heard a band adopt the groove so well
Thanatos Emerging from the Netherworlds
a defining 90s dm/thrash album, plenty of og death and obituary vibes
Thangorodrim Dagor Bragalloch
simple dunsynth hate the obnoxious plodding main key on the first track but the rest ambients well
The Comet Is Coming Trust in the Lifeforce of Deep Mystery
dark beat well orchestrated jazz fusions, powerful stuff
The Fartz World Full of Hate...
a healthy aggressive hardcolon bum
The Fartz You, We See You Crawling
a hardcock band about buttz has no bathroom bizniz being this good what the anus
The Fartz Because This Fuckin' World Still Stinks
very stinky fartcore from a healthy aggressive hardcolon bum a hardcock band about buttz has no bathroom bizniz being this good what the anus was not expecting something so awesome to come out of a butthole
The Kovenant Nexus Polaris
dimmu borgir x king diamond, first 3 tracks are fire then it dwindles into more and more self parody
The Kovenant In Times Before the Light
weaker but still appreciable black symph, highlights in dragonstorms, the chasm, and monarch of the mighty darkness
The Notorious B.I.G. Born Again
best biggie record tbh
The Sins of Thy Beloved Lake of Sorrow
my love is excellent but the rest never becomes more than slightly untacky pseudo classical with growls
The Sins of Thy Beloved All Alone
some great deathish gothdoom
The Sins of Thy Beloved [demo]
doesnt even sound like a demo, great gothicky doom
The True Frost Invoking the Aeon of Satan
not a bad bm album but crystal clear deathish vox n a lot of amateurish riffing bring it down
Theocracy Theocracy
what a better concept than power metal for JAYZUZ. middle trax wind from the narrow path but fish and jerusalem to twist of fate rule pretty ahrd
Therion Beyond Sanctorum
therion step it up and deliver some trv death metal
Therion Symphony Masses: Ho Drakon Ho Megas
as the title implies theyre already on their way to symphing. with a dm basis, this gets a little symphy, a little bmy, a little mdmy, a little prog, a little weird. nothing too great but overall a fun record
Thor's Hammer May the Hammer Smash the Cross
a great upgrade to triumph, they create some cool effects while delivering trv bm, highlight in all we need is war
Thulcandra Ascension Lost
rebellion is an awesome track followed by a string of good but not amazing bm throes wishing they were dissection
Thulcandra Under a Frozen Sun
shameless dissection worship, tho they do add a lot of their own to the epic aeon of darkness
Thulcandra Perishness Around Us
good meloblack distinguishing them from dissection
Thulcandra Hail The Abyss
more like highly polished not lofi in the slightest dissection, still p good tho gets better in the 2nd half
Thyrane Symphonies of Infernality
a more generic milder dimmy but still good, highlight in crimson halls of blood
Thyrane The Spirit of Rebellion
an 'eavy blasymph opera
Thyrane Hypnotic
groovy dusty blacky meloldeaf represented by a cheesy scorpion
Thyrfing Thyrfing
generally good black folk with en doende the star
Thyrfing Urkraft
a lesser but still solid fun thyrfing, highlights in the first 3 tracks
Thyrfing Solen Svartnar
cute early raw folky blasymph
Timeghoul Tumultuous Travelings
cant get this higher bc of the doomy/prog shit but the trv osdm bits are win
Timeless Miracle Heaven In Hell (Demo 2006)
pretty fun demo track
Tomaso Albinoni Adagio in G minor
definitely seems anachronistically altered, best parts are surely albinoni's contribution, overall ends up sounding like a 20th century italian drama
Tormentor Seventh Day of Doom
weird ass but good black thrash
Tormentor 7th Day Of Doom
weird ass but good lofi black tinged metal
Totenburg Weltmacht oder Niedergang
light listening bm with scratchy vox, intro suggests something more epic but its just chill, highlight in wotans zorn
Toxodeth Mysteries About Life And Death
the mexicans enter the dm ring with a bit of tech and meloriffing and show they are trvly the country that celebrates the day of the dead
Trans-Siberian Orchestra The Lost Christmas Eve
the best album of the christmas trilogy, the amateur vox and only slightly rearranged classical and traditional songs take away a lot less than what is given this time around, highlights in faith noel, wizards in winter, and naturally christmas canon rock with lovely lady vox
Trench Hell Southern Cross Ripper
celtic frost x motorhead is about right
Twilight Force Dawn of the Dragonstar
not nearly as good as previous 2 but still welcome. needs more twinkle sparkles
U.D.O. Touchdown
damn they really arent kidding. give me whatever udo has at 71
Unanimated Annihilation
adversarial is amazing until the bullshit core crap at the end, and annihilation is swell as well, but some filler tracks in between
Unleashed Across the Open Sea
rocky rolly deathrash that churns the seas, best songs in to asgaard, northern lands, and esp the general
Unleashed ....Revenge
intense raw dm demo
Upon Stone Where Wild Sorrows Grow
pure atg worship but infinitely better than anything atg did
Vader Go To Hell
some tight deathrash with an awesome cover TO THE GRAVE TO THE GRAVE
Vader Sothis
solid tracks with eh instrums, black sabbath cover on point tho i wish he growled the lyrics more, extended version with raining blood cover is win
Vader The Ultimate Incantation
way to many squiggles in the first half but cant go wrong with tracks like massacre, carrion, n saints
Vader Black to the Blind
shoddy production but they bring the ahrd n it sounds pretty good anyway
Vader Morbid Reich (demo)
relentless n raw but missing their usual tightness
Vader Thy Messenger
excellent straight up deathrash ep from the black n red beast
Valediction The Primitive Architecture
amateur af mdm esp the vox but dont entirely dismiss it for that. the keys on certain tracks give them an addicting industrial motif. best tracks include title and especially nights eye
Vektor Outer Isolation
not nearly as ambitious as debut but flows well
Vemod (NO) The Deepening
too much ambient but better than debut
Venom Storm The Gates
continues the sound of from the very depths but to a lesser degree, this time the standouts are bring out your dead, notorious, i dark lord, beaten to a pulp, and over my dead body. cant wait for the next venom album!!!
Venom Possessed
possessed by powerdrive, satanachist, harmony dies, title, hellchild, and especially wing and a prayer
Venom Prime Evil
venom isnt venom without cronos but mantas and abaddon bring the riffs and fills to make the wins in parasite, skeletal dance, the megalomania cover, insane, and skool daze
Venom Resurrection
a new lineup with cronos' younger brother on drums, and this thing goes fucking AHRD. grungy metal all over the place and in your face. undeniably fun, this would be top venom if not for certain cullable tracks
Venom Metal Black
dirty toned grungy thrash with antechrist, dark realm, lucifer rising, maleficarum and title ruling ass
Venom Demon
a more maideny venom showcasing how cronos really made the band after replacing jesus christ. red light fever just doesnt sound the same without the shouts of, BITCH!
Venom 100 Miles to Hell
1st two tracks are mid venom, but beaten to a pulp is one of their best modern tracks
Venom Skeletons in the Closet
a collection of some of venoms best tracks remixed, unreleased tracks that are pure win esp bitch witch, aural memorabilia, and a few of those so early trv demos. the voiceovers for their tours, commercials (wtf?), and the radio ad are hilarious (also this but what stands out most of all is a beautifully redone version of BLACK METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Venom Tells the Tale
a down to earth interview where the trvest trio explain why venom is so awesome m/
Vesperian Sorrow A Dire Flight for the Black
a pretty great mdeath track. where the hell is the album that was supposed to come out a week and a half ago?
Vesperian Sorrow Awaken the Greylight
a misstep in silly theatrics and weaker songwriting but a fair blasymphony nonetheless
Vinterland Welcome My Last Chapter
listens like a sampler of every main 90s bm style. sum dimmy, sum empy, sum mayhem, quite a bit of dissection, an attempt at bathory, sum what would later become dsbm, as well as a touch of gothenburg. as such never really comes together in unity or their own uniqueness, with only our dawn of glory standing out
Vinterland A Castle So Crystal Clear
some great vinterland tracks
Vinterland It's Here I Belong
a great lofi demo even if its somewhat muffled
Vio-Lence Eternal Nightmare
a fair enough combination of thrash heavy n PUNK
Visions Of Atlantis Eternal Endless Infinity
the fuck is this average? lovebearing storm is a f*cking treasure. unfortunately too many amateur solo male vox overall, they sound best when alternating or just nicole solo. eclipse and chasing the light are good rompers, the latter containing some of nicole's best notes
Visions Of Atlantis A Symphonic Journey to Remember
wonderful concert wish i was there, ritual night, heroes of the dawn, seven seas, title, grand illusion, and return to lemuria are especially lively
Voivod Dimension Hatröss
some tech bits n vox annoying af but overall fun album
Voivod Killing Technology
thrashy n nothing rly wrong with it just doesnt go for the kill
Volbeat The Strength/The Sound/The Songs
pretty much alternates between hits ans eh's, fun album
Volbeat Beat the Meat
rough, groovy n punky n dramatic, good demo
Volcandra The Way of Ancients
well done if not super exciting blackened mlodeaf, about the same quality as your avg necrophobic
Vulcano Bloody Vengeance
chthonic and raw barely formed igneous metal
Vulcano Anthropophagy
another super potato lofi death/thrash mix
W.A.S.P. The Headless Children
another solid pure win wasp but no highlights
W.A.S.P. Live at the Lyceum, London
great show. wasp are crazy, assless chaps, cock meat, and bloody boobies
W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P.
wasp rulz
W.A.S.P. Inside the Electric Circus
solid party rockin album yet i pull no highlights sadge
Walknut Graveforests and Their Shadows
its pretty good, that rhythm on ostenvagr tho
Watain Black Metal Sacrifice
kvlt n trv bm, even if the drums sound like someone slapping buttcheeks
Watain Casus Luciferi
dissection if dissection kept along the main bm route
Whispered Blindfold
blindfold is easily their best song a trv mdm m/
Windir 1184
solid black folk but not as babymaking as previous dates
Windir Sogneriket
amazing demo for a 15 year old and in general, fjell og dalar is a quite beauteous win(dir) organ piece
Witch Vomit Funeral Sanctum
GROSS...but tasty...? but GROSS
Witchery Restless & Dead
sum great blacky thrash, highlight in reaper
Witchslayer '83 Demo
an old lost thrash heavy demo with a side o' doom

good quality trv symphies with who i am particularly justified

title n other half are pure win
Within Temptation Paradise (What About Us?)
best pop ever
Wizards of Aldur Queen of Sorcery
a great dungeoning album highlights in ruins of old and queen of cities
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Divertimento in B-flat Major, K. 137
th'andante is pretty boring but th'allegro m is hot shit followed by a motions going assai
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Sonata No. 5 in G major K. 283 / 189h
a dainty piano piece of mozart's typical effortless frivolity
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Requiem in D minor, K. 626
the famous requiem starts amazing but goes on to shift between good and meh
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "Prague" Symphony No. 38 in D major, K. 504
movements i and ii are calming to the nerves, while iii gets very spicy indeed ( ? ?? ?)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Violin Concerto No. 3, K. 216
movement i is what you're here for, ii is rather dull and iii is good but lacking
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Violin Concerto No.4 in D major, K.218
i is the best movement of this rather middling concerto
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Horn Concertos No. 1-4 K.412/417/447/495
they are alright concertos, the horn really doesn't do much and so you're left with half-baked mozart orchestration, pleasant enough but not thoroughly so. best pieces are 412 i, classic mozart, and 495 iii
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Adagio and Fugue in C minor, K. 546
a short piece with an unappetizing adagio melding into a lovely fugue
X Japan Art of Life
pretty good powerclassical symphony
X-Mas Project X-Mas Project
german christmas metal is win esp leise rieselt, great king wenzeslaw and alle jahre wieder
X-Mas Project X-Mas Project Vol. II

X-Mas Project X-Mas Project Vol. I + II
a collection of all their covers like it says on the jewel case with an addition of an outro, the ultimate christmas album
Xasthur Portal Of Sorrow
this is cool, straddles that fine line of epic vs corny/cheesy without going over it, sounds like outtakes from several vg scores
xSPONGEXCOREx The Panty Raid
at night is so good omg. so is three days n no shirt no im not kidding 3.5 well deserved
Yannick Dauby 蛙蛙哇!Songs of the Frogs of Taiwan - Vol 1
FROGGIES ^.^ < 3
Yasuaki and Harumi Fujita Mega Man 3
best 8 bit collection ever
Yellowcard Ocean Avenue
ahrd pop punks with unusually positive lyrics. way away, salesman, n esp believe are the best tracks
Yellowcard Where We Stand
raw and unpolished, verging on metallic, this album is just fun. highlights in kids and doesnt matter
Yellowcard Southern Air
finally an album that can compete with ocean avenue. thinking must have sparked some long atrophied creativity because here we are with a solid viopunk bopper without a bad track and a highlight in always summer. ten is intense too
legit good punktal riffs n energy ignore the unworthy scrubs below
YOURMOM Projected / Eclipsed
their best ep, non stop wild punktal riffing n bashing

3.0 good
...and Oceans Cypher
not trv at all but still kind of fun
1914 Für Kaiser, Volk und Vaterland!
album/ep is everywhere, from war inspired noise to ahrd bm to random shit to screams imitating an ambulance siren, overall is eh stick to da gud stuff
3 Inches of Blood Advance and Vanquish
melodic powercore with king diamond highs. would be a lot better if they frugd off with the core
50 Cent The Massacre
good beats n overall songwriting but goes on too long
50 Cent Get Rich or Die Tryin'
sum solid beats in what up gangsta n if i cant, mid goods thruout
50 Cent Power of the Dollar (EP)
fiddy cen' DOES IT
7th Gate Dancer In The Snowfall EP
pretty cool techno space snow dancer
A Flock of Seagulls Listen
wishing is a gorgeous track but everything after is strictly middle of the road, neither heading into the speed lane nor lagging in the cruiser
A Plea for Purging A Critique of Mind and Thought
holy shit was not expecting the melody storm on this. actually decent tracks with regular guttural screams instead of mccore ones, this is legit some good melodic hardcore, esp vipers n sparrows
ABBA Super Trouper
has winner, new year n love a couple almosts, rest unnotable
ABBA The Winner Takes It All
title is so fucked up given the circumstances and in general yet a masterclass in pop nonetheless, elaine is mid
Abbath Dread Reaver
some cool tracks but also a lot of mids and cover is lolz
Abysm (USA) Sol Invictus
pretty avg mdeth but betrayed is fun
AC/DC Black Ice
a surprising return to form with generally higher quality n a bonnie hit in rock n roll train
AC/DC Let There Be Rock
ac/dc's most consistent album yet, all trv rockers with highlights in title and rosie with their wicked solos
AC/DC Highway To Hell
the highway to pretty mild. just has title, tho girls got rhythm is cute and LMAO the mork n mindy reference in night prowler
AC/DC Back In Black
bonnie should have sang on this, most consistent ac/dc with hells bells and title taking the lead
long way to the top rulz ass and when the bagpipes come in my god, rock singer is dece, TNT is the greatest rock song oat, the original release of rocker + chuck berry cover was an infinitely better decision than the later international high voltage edition, everything else is unfortunately lackluster and prevents the higher score ac/dc and tnt ought to have
AC/DC Let There Be Rock (Australia)
aussy version has crabsody instead of problem child and that drags the spirit of the album
Accept Metal Heart
love udo and all the extra instruments they incorporate, just needs moar POWAA, bound to fail is epic
Accept Balls to the Wall
best trad metal/hard rox vox, legendary title is the star here

pretty good, appreciate the old school production tho that snare sounds like their band name smells, nice chunky riffs, vox could be better but it works, nice solo in knock by night
Adrenalin O.D. The Wacky Hi-Jinks Of Adrenalin O.D.
Adrenalin O.D. Cruising With Elvis In Bigfoot's U.F.O.
adrenalin ahrdcore like no one before with darkthrone having implanted the main riff of amy carter straight into transylvanian hunger and some silly covers
Aephanemer Know Thyself
cute little instrumental ep
Aerosmith Made in America
most of asmiths best in one nice little package
Aeternus ...and So the Night Became
clean behind the ears post-trv melodic bm with some folky acoustics
Aether (POL) In Embers
barebones mdm only standout track is last battle
Aetherian Tales of Our Times
belakor style mdm but with some awkward tunings n an unnecessary effect on the vox to try to make it sound bigger
After Forever Invisible Circles
all over the place in quality, highlight in through square eyes, dumb skits would be better if the guy didnt sound like cartman
After Forever Decipher
amateur af but also charmingly so, best parts are floor's ofc
After Forever After Forever
this ones got evoke and energize me
After Forever Remagine
another all over the place album but free of doubt and demons stand out. also 69 ratings nice ;)
After Forever Exordium
some fun symphs but nothing special
Agathodaimon Chapter III
decentish meloblack highlight in paradise beyond

a weird album of symph black/heavy/performing theatre arts nevertheless trv in tongue of thorns and the first half of death plenitude
Agathodaimon Phoenix
a flamsey alright dusty melolblack album its there if u want it
Agathodaimon In Darkness
a fair return to more bmy meloblack but funnies still abundant

Air Supply Making Love - The Very Best of Air Supply
has all their best songs on it agreed
Al-Namrood Kitab Al-Awthan
very mid weaker album, piano on kiram is addictive tho
Al-Namrood Astfhl Al Tha'r
a bit too stereotypically middle eastern, and the melodies are just kind of there instead of integrated into the bm like in later albums
Al-Namrood Heen Yadhar Al Ghasq
another less profound album with decent rhythms but not so much metal, estahalat is fun
Alcest Souvenirs D'Un Autre Monde
dream metal?
Alcest Les Voyages De L'Âme
slightly thicc-er dream metal that doesnt quite capture anything
Alcest Tristesse Hivernale (Demo)
rawcest ;)

the birth of crust, ahrd but too oft repeated riffs with a total mismatch in regular punk vox, and lofi raw almost bmy prod
Amebix Arise!
crust after taking a brief dip in the bath
Amon Amarth The Crusher
a much more raw and deathy alcoholics anonymous, with a paradoxically awkward-awesome album cover to boot
Amon Amarth Versus the World
mellow melodeth flicks with a tinge of the patented aa epicness. drums are somehow still bunk 4 albums in however
Amon Amarth The Arrival of the Fimbul Winter
some decent deathy mdm by the vikings who would go on to milk the same song for 30 years
Amon Amarth Sorrow Throughout the Nine Worlds
good amon ep leading into their debut
Amorphis The Beginning of Times
typical morphis album with a lovely highlight in mermaid
Amorphis Tales from the Thousand Lakes
raw unpolished 'morphis. unconventional songwriting unseen in anything else that can be considered death metal, but also not too amazing overall
Amorphis Silent Waters
incantation, servant, and title are all top tier tracks, but then it slows its momentum to a near halt with track after track of clear voxed simplicities
Amorphis Elegy
amorphis is fuckin weird. highlight in cares
Amorphis Eclipse
tomi morphis best morphis
Amorphis The Moon & More EP
mid tracks off halo, the win bonus brother sister from queen of time, and some of their mid tracks live but sounding phenomenal as such

when youre not trv but u want to try to give the kvlt a run for their money

Rites 3.5; Old Times 3; Via 3; Raade 4 lovely viking maiden singing; Crown 3.5; Betrayed 4.5 epic to be or not to be track; Vale 2 shit track; Return 2.5 filler; As I Die 3 weird ass track with viking maiden at end; Mitt Hjerte 3

modern bm prod is a little annoying n half the songs just arent good, but solitude n kindling stand out with morkets grode a trv ringer
Antestor Despair (Demo)
the trv antestor emerges. highlight in jesus jesus
Anthrax Stomp 442
great energy but nothing really stands out and it goes on for too long

there's just not much to them
Anvil Hard 'n' Heavy
classic cast metal that starts great but nearly outlives its stay on the anvil
Aphex Twin Collapse
pretty good techbeats, not bad at all
Apocalyptica Inquisition Symphony
on one hand nice adaptations, on the other hand its mostly metallica
Arch Enemy War Eternal
the best overall ae album, how did this happen? well unlike gossow alyssa has singing talent, disregarding the lame ass lyrics they adhere to. riffs seem recast along with their new singer despite being usual ae fare with amotts diddling everywhere, and i cant say i hate tracks like never forgive, title, pages, name, or avalanche. 5 decentish to good tracks not brought too far down by the more fillery songs, and thus a 3 it will be
Arch Enemy Stolen Life
mini version of war eternal plus covers, alissa trying to do actual dm is cute
Arch Enemy Burning Angel
back when amott still had some brain cells you get some good mdm
Arch Enemy Råpunk
punk covers with alissa carrying them all
Archgoat Whore of Bethlehem
blackened thrash with tin can vox
Arghoslent Galloping Through the Battle Ruins
first half is mid af but picks up to be good mdm by the end
Arghoslent Incorrigible Bigotry
mid to good mdm with poor epics
Arghoslent The Imperial Clans
solid mdm without anything amazing
Arghoslent Arsenal of Glory
another solid mellydelly without anything blatantly win
Artificial Brain Butchering Cosmic Giants
rather simple compositions from the arty brain
Artificial Brain Demo
definitely a demo
Astarte Demonized
a lighthearted approach to bm that uses a lot of trad riffs as well as melodies, but often awkwardly composed and sounding puerile. still a charming album with a lot of good moments
Astarte Sirens
decentish to good melodic black featuring BOOBIES ( ? ?? ?)
Astarte Rise From Within
a mid to good bm effort with some cool synths/keys now and again
Astarte Quod Superius Sicut Inferius
amateurish/basic meloblack with a few fun surprises in title, band track, n reign unfold
Astralborne Across the Aeons
one of those proggy slogger mdms like belakor ruining most mdm sections with prog passages
At the Gates With the Pantheons Blind
sum not actually bad mdms by the crates
Atargatis Nova
another steadily mid album, but crucified is pretty good
Atargatis Wasteland
title and selina are good, circle of life has some high notes, but that male vocalist is garbage when he comes on and he needs to be fired. she herself is pretty good but nothing too captivating on here
Atlas Pain Behind the Front Page
decent enough melofolk that steals its best parts straight from equi
Atvm Natura Naturata
decent melodethy prog but not too prog weakish dm
Atvm Out Of Chaotic Waters
some more melodethy tech thats better than the majority of its genre
Aura Noir Aura Noire
a bit awkward n somewhat techy blackened thrash but pretty solid
Autopsy Mental Funeral
classic cover is win, dm parts are good but too much doom brings it down a lot
Autopsy Puncturing the Grotesque
fairly good dm giving a peek at what would eventually appear 5 years later
Autopsy Ashes, Organs, Blood and Crypts
sounds like an autopsy worship band than autopsy. toxic death fuk goes ahrd
Autopsy Peaceville Presents... Autopsy - EP
a thorough surgically laid out representation
Avantasia A Paranormal Evening With the Moonflower Society
tim burtons avantasia. overall good quality, pain n light standout
Avril Lavigne The Angus Drive
her best songs

2 power balls, basketcaze, n 2 lessers live
Azarath Saint Desecration
the more they sound like behe the better they get. weak vox tho

brains thinking AHRD tho the reggae is just incongruous and jilting
Bad Religion How Could Hell Be Any Worse?
punk worshippin
Bal-Sagoth The Power Cosmic
silly but still more good than bad
Bal-Sagoth Starfire Burning Upon the Ice-Veiled Throne
builds off debut slightly with a highlight in title
Bal-Sagoth Battle Magic
another saggybals album without anything too great
Bal-Sagoth The Chthonic Chronicles
doesnt hold a candle to atlantis but invocations stands out
Bal-Sagoth Demo
ol' saggy bals used to do a lighter but straight up synth dm gig
Bal-Sagoth Apocryphal Tales (Demo 1993)
silly synth dm with a lovecraftian epic instrum ending

some good shit on this but they let it go on forever

barry's middest bum without anything super groovy
Barathrum Warmetal
gud raw black n rollzzzz
Barathrum Jetblack
awesome track in hellbreed followed by the lacking title
Barathrum Sanctus Satanas (Studio & Stage)
studio side a combination of weird noises and blackdoom but more interesting than any previous release. live side is utter shit production but i also dont hate it
Barathrum Black Flames and Blood
a good blackdoom track and a lolz manowar cover
Barbra Streisand The Barbra Streisand Album
how to sing 101
Bathory Twilight of the Gods
quorthon enters his silly phase. he goes overboard trying to be epic but forgets to add substance, every track missing its mark except title
Bathory Destroyer of Worlds
the first bathory album quorthon did solo, first third of the album is very soft with electric guitar providing a minimal frame most of the time until 109, then picks up slightly with more prominent but still simple, punk and even nu riffage. easily bathory's worst release especially after the 5 years since blood on ice, but evidentally a necessary transitional period in order to get the softer folk elements just right on his trv magna opera, the nordland albums, as the closer day of wrath heavily implies. for most bathory i keep the entire disc in my library, but for this i can only deem lake of fire, 109, and death from above
Battleaxe Burn This Town
EPIC COVER starts great but doesnt keep hefting the battle axe blade for long, highlight in ready to deliver
Batushka Panihida
this is just typical modern bm with whogivesafuk chants nothing special
Batushka Hospodi
its just kinda there. certainly no pure wins
Be'lakor Stone's Reach
love the vox, similar to jukka, and at times it seems like its omnium. but be'lakor is quite a bit more dumpy, and their doominess works in some places better than others, more often so than not
Behemoth Antichristian Phenomenon
another solid ep with some cool/hilarious covers
Behemoth Demigod
this one's not so great. too many doodly-dos and motions going
Behemoth Satanica
behemoth turns blackened death. nothings rly that great but the drums on lam are wicked punchy tight and chant for ezkaton is fun
Behemoth Bewitching the Pomerania
a nice n cute little ep, rerecordings are tighttttt
Behemoth Conjuration
one original track with some fun covers and live tracks
Behemoth Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel
title is kind of boring but cain is awesome and siekiera cover p cool
Beherit Drawing Down the Moon
a rather plain and unspectacular bm debut
Beherit At The Devil's Studio 1990
rawest ov the trv with a handsome goat man
Beherit The Oath Of Black Blood
black metal go brrrr. highlight dawn of satan
Belphegor The Devils
bm mixed w bdm that is somehow enjoyable
Belphegor Lucifer Incestus
these jokers n their black pizza n their butts n breasts to get u salivating. anyway mid to deces with paradise regained the only real fun track
Belphegor Pestapokalypse VI
another mid album but sanctus is fun
Billy Talent Billy Talent
consistently solid 3s thruout with highlights in ex and river below
Billy Talent Dead Silence
only bad songs are stand and show me. everything else still fun but def doesnt have the impact of a decade ago
Billy Talent Billy Talent III
devil 3; rain 3; veronika 3.5 punky poignancy; wine 2.5 could have been good but too many awkward lines bring it down a lot; sparrows been procrastinating this album because of this song ffs 4; dreams 2.5 another let downer that should have been good but fails this time bc of just not having the overall riffs; dead good baseline but thats about it still somehow scrapes 2.5; diamond it shouldnt be more than an overall 3 but the chorus hits just right so 3.5; turn total filler track 2; movements even worse filler song 1.5; destiny a final one of those almost good tracks that has a good hook surrended by a whole lot of filler 2.5
Black Flag Six Pack
more intense punks with suitably deeper vox
Black Flag Damaged
rocky mildcore with some lolz
Black Fucking Cancer Procreate Inverse
again solid blackened death with an awesome cover but u rly have to be addicted to this shit to get much more out of it
Black Funeral Empire of Blood
tries too hard to be lofi and imitate european bm
Black Majesty Tomorrowland
the middle is a lame slog but rises again by the end, forever damned and wings to fly for highlights
Black Rose Bright Lights Burnin'
some decent trad rock metals from a band with little notoriety
Black Sabbath Dehumanizer
under the influence of now 80s metal master dio sabbath finally returns FULL METAL and its about as good as a dio album
Black Sabbath Headless Cross
a fair half n half metal/rock album with a heavier first half, tony martin is surprisingly improved and sounds like dio
Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell
dio becomes the centrepiece of a band that is definitely not black sabbath but something else entirely, a metal band again but nothing lucrative esp with everything else coming out and about to come out
Black Sabbath Sabotage
a heavy front half with universe steadily metal going down within and after megalomania
Black Sabbath Tyr
a mild and moderately good pm album if you forget it has black sabbath written on it, tony martin continues his finer tuned vox as last if not better
Black Sabbath Seventh Star
the alb that was supposed to be tommys solo debut is a fair rock effort with a metal track in for the kill
Black Sabbath Technical Ecstasy
sabbath put out a fair and catchy rock album
Black Sabbath Paranoid
not anywhere near as good as self titled, next to no atmosphere, more generic rock rhythms n riffs, only gets steadily metal on iron man and electric funeral and somewhat on war pigs
Blackbraid Blackbraid I
one of those wannabe new age bm bands that is ok to listen to but isnt really that good
Blackbraid Blackbraid II
yep another modern bm attempt that doesnt really go anywhere. bathory cover is butchered
Blasphemophagher Atomic Infested Carnage
hardgoing dm but they would take another 5 years to send out something rly good
Blasphemophagher Final Atomic Torments
a weird anniversary release with only 3 tracks, consisting of a lesser debut, a cover and a good compilation only track
Blind Guardian Somewhere Far Beyond
title track is epic af
Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-Earth
not a bad album but you start to hear the transformation into their 2000s shit
Blind Guardian Follow the Blind
not as good as debut, a lot of motionsgoing riffs and apparently no ideas as they end with not one but 2 covers. starts to get the typical bg sound (unfortunately), another poster child for why you dont try releasing an album every year
Blind Guardian Imaginations from the Other Side
the beginning of modern era bg. its ok
Blind Guardian A Past and Future Secret
when bg was mostly good
Blind Guardian Guardians of the Rings
another showcase ep of bg when they were still good
blink-182 Enema Of The State
a handful of essential poppunks with some not so essential
blink-182 Dude Ranch
good quality pop punk but nothing addictive
Bloodbath Resurrection Through Carnage
i was gonna say the trv opeth but then they started sounding like scar symmetry and my hard on shrivelled
Bloodstone (SWE) Branded at the Threshold of the Damned
what atg wished they were capable of
Blut Aus Nord Memoria Vetusta III - Saturnian Poetry
decently tinged bm that doesnt rly do anything special
Boards of Canada Hooper Bay
fuck me an actually good boc album
Bobby Caldwell What You Won't Do for Love
most soul rnb feels artificial and fake af but a lot of this is real esp sthg like my flame, but the other lot isnt
Bobby Vinton Melodies of Love
smooth n trv, highlights in title, am i losing, n beautiful girl
Bobby Vinton There I've Said It Again
smooth as can be but no highlights
Bolt Thrower Realm of Chaos
buncha avg to mid good dm
Bolt Thrower Mercenary
mid-good grungy dm highlight in no guts n glory
Bolt Thrower Cenotaph
mid af dm albums result in mid af eps
Bon Jovi Bon Jovi
in an era of metal bands jovi was making some hot rock bb
Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet
full ass radio rock of the kind to make ur pet cockatoo dance, and it isnt even bad. bad name lyrics dont go with the music at all however and its one of those few instances when the words completely ruin the tunes
Bon Jovi Crossroad
not the worst comp but the outtakes were rightly outtaken
Bond Classified
decent remixes of some classic classical tunes, tho only explosive and robin are worth their salt, a v disappointing use of canon in lullaby
Bond Shine
a plainer offer, still allegretto, fuego, big love adagio, and ride. their cover of the famous theme from which they borrow their moniker also sounds much better
Bond Play
diablo is ruined by rap synth vox for no good reason, elysium is pure win, summer and winter are well performed, west with the night is amazing
Boris Apostolov Midnight Waltz
a nice dainty little piano piece with a worthwhile climax
Boris Apostolov Gaming Music
once upon a time and asgore are great, megalovania is misunderstood, fnaf is lame
Borknagar True North
tyr done right, thunderous is a more trad folk metal while up north is this weird but lovely folk country metal construction
Borknagar Empiricism
a more freeform lighter amorphis, clean vox are annoying as can be in some places, but genuine pulse rulz
Borknagar Epic
a more light yet blackened morphy with folky jam sessions
Broken Torso The Ultimate Abhorrence
seemed rather plain and motionsgoing esp with those grunty vox but grew on me as it advanced not bad
Brujeria Pocho Aztlan
death/grind in spanish with an authentic mexican flavour. nothing too interesting but its fun
Brutality Screams of Anguish
they named themselves incorrectly. light deathdoom with symphonic interludes make this anything but brutal. lightdoom, deathlight, brutalnot
Brutality When the Sky Turns Black
doomy techdeath thankfully without most of the melodic noodling on debut, but still mid
Brymir Slayer of Gods
for those who died followed by a bunch of mid symph/black/mdm with atrocious vox
Budgie Budgie
buttgie rulz
Budgie Never Turn Your Back on a Friend
of the 70s prog bands only buttgie knows how to really RAWK
Burzum Det Som Engang Var
a baby eagle just learning how to squawk amongst basic bm riffs and the beginnings of dungeon synth
Burzum Fallen
a lesser version of belus featuring the death of naked innocence
Burzum Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
title track jams but for the most part basic bm with silly synths and old hag vox
Burzum Umskiptar
a denser and more ante prison kind of epic journey than fallen yet unlike the previous two doesnt seem to go anywhere, and way too much talking on the journey
Burzum Demo II
both lost wisdoms sound so mournful here, lowest fi lightest bms
Burzum Svarte Dauen
bootleg of raw burzumz and an ildjarn track
Burzum Burzum Demo
feeble melodies full of depth
Burzum Mythic Dawn
not a bad burmanum
Buzzcocks Spiral Scratch
so this is where all the whiny pop punk bands come from
Camel Mirage
indeed a mirage as they create a steadfast illusion of the former camel
Camel The Snow Goose
a lofty bactrian wades its way through a plethora of audible landscapes that may or may not suitably represent the novel inspired therein
Candlemass Epicus Doomicus Metallicus
a classic but only solitude and sorcerers pledge are standouts. should have used those epic highs more
Cannibal Corpse Eaten Back to Life
decent debut by the corpse grind
Cannibal Corpse A Skeletal Domain
album cover is epic, music isnt bad either, combining newer and older sounds. corpse going for more throaty shouts is nice, course that doesnt make it any better than what it is, admire the grooves on asphyxiate though. you know what im actually gonna give this a 3, there actually exists another decent corpse album
Cara Neir Part I / Part II
an alright but not spectacular bm adjacent
Carach Angren Lammendam
certainly the most metallic of their efforts, with bm heaviness being matched evenly to symph elements. still its only decent and only a few moments here and there rly stand out. strange presence is the best of it
Carlo Gesualdo Tenebrae Responsoria
a man can only take so much latin choral singing. still its peaceful, and if pretending to be at mass on a medieval sunday is your kink, you wont find a better escape than this
Carpathian Forest Black Shining Leather
late to the game all thats left to do is make a kind of rockin parody of whats been done before
Carpathian Forest Through Chasm, Caves And Titan Woods
cf always put on a show, too bad their riffs arent as good
Carpathian Forest We're Going to Hell for This - Over a Decade ...
bm with rockin riffs soundin decent but not entombed's level. venom cover is win tho
Carpathian Forest Fuck You All!!!!
a raging slice of pizza black
Carrie Underwood My Gift
carries best album, esp on holy night and have yourself
Cauldron Tomorrow's Lost
weirdly lofi vox for a tertiary 2013 release. decent enough power/thrash but nothing enticing
Celtic Frost Vanity/Nemesis
back to rockin' trv trash babeeeeeeeeee
Cemetary An Evil Shade of Grey
midgood nascent melobleaths mastering no aspects of its derived genres
Ceremonial Oath The Book of Truth
one o those more deathy mdm bands, too bad it just aint that good
Ceremonium Nightfall In Heaven
some pretty average osdm
Charles Gounod Faust
hits all the classical bars but is merely a case of trying to imitate the masters
Children of Bodom Relentless Reckless Forever
NOT MY FUNERAL fuck you bitch this is one of the best songs alexi's ever written 555 MOTHERFUCKERS; Shovel just as retarded as it is badass once again go fuck yourself 4.5 BITCH I DON'T GIVE A FUCK; Roundtrip idfk why so many tards worship this track it fucking sucks 2; Pussy a confused garble of a track but still worth 2.5; RRF way too slow given its title but eventually grew on me 3.5; Ugly ABSOLUTE FUCKING SHIT OF A SONG DOESNT FUCKING GO ANYWHERE OR MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE BEYOND THE MAIN RIFF 1.5 UGLY IS DAMN RIGHT WORST BODOM OF ALL TIME; Nihilist average 3; Worth It? def not so much the party song alexi described it as but ok it's like a 2.5; Northpole THROWDOWN this albums attempt at a Hate Crew Deathroll but nowhere near as good mmm 3.5 or so. easily their worst album overall @TRASHmachine UR A BITCH
Children of Bodom Something Wild
DEADNIGHT WARRIOR 3; Shadow best song on the album but it's only a 3.5; Red light pt 1 one of the worst things they've ever done 2; Red light pt 2 3.5; LAKE BODOM 3.5; NAIL 3.5; Angel of DEATH 3.5 easily 2nd worst bodom album anyone who doesnt think so can KISS MY NOR-DIC PALE WHITE ASS. early rendition of band track sucks as does mass hypnosis cover but their little drunken keyboard sprawl is pure win and i clipped it as a separate track
Children of Bodom Hexed
Road 3 mellow metal almost buttrock but enjoyable; Grass & Clover 3 same as road but with more twang and a catchier chorus; Glass 2 garbo filler track; Hecate post ironically fun 4; Spleen a weak throwback to in your face but fun and too trv all the same 4; Platitudes one of the goddamn most annoying songs they've ever written with the most hashed chorus and yet i dont hate it 3; Title hashed in neoclassical stuff for the sake of the old days but it sounds good so 3 still just kind of mehleasant; Relapse is this even a track? 1.5 pure white noise, officially my lowest rated and thus worst bodom song; Never Look another garbo filler track should be the theme song for sesame street 2; Soon Departed perfect ballad only beaten by angels, perfect sense of rhythm, flow, tone, lyricism, and pathos. the only imperfection is that it suddenly ends abruptly instead of gradually fading out, same problem with tie my rope from being a completely perfect song. Knuckleduster: one of the best and most badass tracks theyve ever recorded, rawer version on the ep is better but this one still packs the soul n punch of the original 5. live bonus tracks suck, knuckle remix is archetype lolz
Christ Agony Moonlight Act III
rather weak and lite bm with only title track standing out
Chuck Berry After School Session
simple jiggy riffs tied to the win that is boogie piano create a subtlely seducing half hour lennyface
Chuck Berry Chuck Berry Is on Top
metal was invented by carol n johnny b goode
Cinderella Long Cold Winter
cinderellas second effort not as exciting as the first
Cirith Ungol Frost and Fire
good band, gnarly riffs, knife best track
Cirith Ungol One Foot in Hell
ciriff ungooooooooool
Cirith Ungol Witch's Game
a not so great new single with some classic ungol
Cirith Ungol Half Past Human
not as good as they used to be but its still cirith ungol
Cirith Ungol Dark Parade
velocity is a welcome addition to their best songs but otherwise just avg cirith
Clandestine Blaze Fire Burns in Our Hearts
raw early burzumy bm but not much else to it
Claude Debussy Images. Book 1, L. 110.
i and ii are light clouds with occasional pitter patters of rain drops to either brighten or ruin your day, while iii lets all doubt recede as the deluge pelteth forth
Claude Debussy Images. Book 2, L. 111.
a couple of soft gentle breezes before the windstorm
Claude Debussy Children's Corner, L. 113
indeed, piano for children
Claude Debussy Suite bergamasque, L. 75
clair de lune is one of the most atrocious pieces ever put to paper and audio inscription, the other movements debussy's usual light frolicking
Claude Debussy L'isle joyeuse, L. 106
not the worst song about fucking but close
Cloven Hoof Dominator
has the grand audacity of trv butt but nothing imperative
Cocteau Twins Garlands
debut is pretty sweet, cool effects, deep but still mellow tunes, dat title bass
Coil The Ape Of Naples
instrumentals are great but depleted by the worthless vox
Coldworld Melancholie²
not the most interesting blackgaze but tortured by solitude is pretty good
Converge Jane Doe
this is not mccore, mccore is trash. this is not metal, metal is life. what we have here is punktal. not punk, not metal, too heavy for the former and too light riffed for the latter
Coroner Punishment for Decadence
appreciate the neoclassical elements on arclite. pretty solid with nice grooves in parts
Coroner Death Cult (demo)
not bad techthrash about the same quality as debut
Corpse Grinders Corpse Grinders
cant find werewolf but pretty sweet punk elvises

lofi phat bass bm with some of the most amateurish vox ever

the beginning of the filth, highlights in title and eve
Cradle of Filth Bitter Suites to Succubi
couldve just released it as an album tbh. highlights in all hope and the much more beautifully rendered summer dying fast
Cradle of Filth Cruelty and the Beast
thirteen autumns, title, and bathory aria are the pillars keeping his album from falling into averageville
Cradle of Filth Thornography
rock n roll cradle, but it doesnt get good until lovesick for mina, foetus rules, pentagram is great, n idc what anyone says that temptation cover is win
Cradle of Filth Midnight in the Labyrinth
ignore the naysayers this is a cool album. essentially a film score for the dramatic b list horror movie that is cradle of filth. summer dying fast sounds particularly good in this setting
Cradle of Filth Invoking the Unclean [Demo]
it's horrible, but good, but horrible, but also good
Cradle of Filth The Black Goddess Rises [Demo]
filth showing their progression as a band as the trax get more focused and streamlined, goes from trv bm to dm to a final more quality produced operetta anyone would recognize as cof
Cradle of Filth Raising Covers Hell
collection of cofs covers, they rly adapt everything to their own style, nothing done bad but halloween is epic af
Cradle of Filth Eleven Burial Masses
quality is somewhat shoddy but cthulu, summer, n cradle rawk
Crimson Glory Transcendence
fair effort trad style pm but no standouts
Crimson Moon To Embrace the Vampyric Blood
some minimal symphy bm its not very engaging, highlight in carpe noctem and the ending track if you like your burzums
Crimson Moonlight Divine Darkness
unfortunately suffers from modern bm syndrome, but not all bad and a solid track here and there
Crimson Moonlight The Glorification of the Master of Light
like whats on the albums but bad
Crimson Moonlight In Depths of Dreams Unconscious
pretty unnotable blackened death ep
Crimson Moonlight Abaddon
super polished modern bm and it isnt that great. jackals is the best track
Crimson Thorn Plagued
its good-ish but also rough af and the steve rowe vox are horrible
Cro-Mags The Age of Quarrel
metal PUNK
Cryptopsy Ungentle Exhumation
some decently awkward dm before never producing anything worthwhile again
Cryptopsy The Book of Suffering - Tome 1
an actually pretty good crypt ep
Crystal Age Far Beyond Divine Horizons
decent deathy tech but with shitty atg lindberg style vox, thankfully theyre not around much, last 3 tracks go ahrdest
Crystal Age Promo '94
decent techy dm
Crystal Knight Crystal Knight
they got the spirit but need moar riffs, highlight in war attack
Crystal Knight Demo
cant find pushed to the wall but classic vintage 80s metulz
Crystal Viper The Cult
marta gabriel makes some power metal worth listening to
Crystal Viper Tales of Fire and Ice
some more decent power metal largely held together by marta. love when her polish accent peeks out
Cult Of Fire Triumvirat
slightly more symphy krallice but not that great
Cult Of Fire Life, Sex and Death
less complicated more casual (haha get it) krallice
Cynic '88 Demo
cynic silly from the beginning
Cynic '90 Demo
just a straight up thrasher
Cynic Demo 1991
jazzily jizzily death metal
Cynic Promo '08
integral birth is actually pretty great with its melodic chorus, adams murmur just typical progynic
Dark Funeral Teach Children to Worship Satan
a decent new track and covers with a highlight in pagan fears
Dark Funeral Attera Totus Sanctus
king antichrist is a beast of a song, rest is their usual just above avg bum
Dark Heresy Abstract Principles Taken to Their Logical Extreme
a modern better than latter day atheist atheist worship. not my favourite but the metallic jazz on hole is pretty sweet, dunno what the little nude muddle rap on tylers stand is about though
Dark Tranquillity Character
good overall, certainly about stanne's best vocal performance, but the songs themselves seem a step down from damage done and indeed make out to be flatter than their more vibrant predecessors. best track is lost to apathy
Dark Tranquillity Of Chaos and Eternal Night
when your ep is better than your first two albums
Dark Tranquillity Enter Suicidal Angels
this ep is nothing but win, especially archetype
Dark Tranquillity Damage Done
final 3; hours 3.5; mono 3.5; single 3.5; treason 3; format 3 ; title 2.5; cathode 3; enemy 3; deception 2.5; white 2.5; nihilo 2.5; static 3.5 poison 3.5
Dark Tranquillity A Memory Construct
a couple dece mdeafs
Darkthrone Sardonic Wrath
this ones pretty tight tbh
Darkthrone Soulside Journey
middling dm album no wonder fenriz jumped on the bm boat when he could
Darkthrone Total Death
blaze n hungers prod blended with a mix of all previous bm albums riffs and atmosphere, and as such its better than all of them but not worth much just as
Dawn of Orion On Broken Wings
a more deathy atg style melodeath and it aint bad
Dead Congregation Promulgation of the Fall
dat overprodded deathdoom that replaces quality and talent with overblown eq. nevertheless they do go ahrd enough that i have to lean to the positive side a bit
Dead Congregation Purifying Consecrated Ground
better than anything they did after, listenable modern deathdoom
Dead Kennedys Bedtime for Democracy
much as i dislike this crap band they finally put out a real rocker with a few sections close to thrash even
Deafheaven Sunbather
blackgaze bits are decent-good, rest is garbo
Deafheaven From the Kettle Onto the Coil
decent but not amazing track
Deals Death Elite
dat rwj band, to answer his question a decade later theyre a mid-good band with the only stand out track being fortified
Death Individual Thought Patterns
thrash is good, prog is bad, bass lines are terrible, highlight in nothing is everything
Death The Sound of Perseverance
destroys symbolic, more streamlined techthrash than thoughts
Death Infernal Death
admittedly not as good as their other demos
Decapitated Blood Mantra
an actually good decapitated album in their new style hoyl shit. lots of grooves and bambams but nothing beyond general entertainment
Decapitated The Eye of Horus
only a year later but theyve already gone into a refined tech route, which is not appreciable. still dads old drumkit and nice synth outro but the vox are singular and the tech ironically makes the technically better song writing just bleh
Deeds of Flesh Reduced to Ashes
as with most bdm weak and simple but overall better tones and dynamics than usual, however taken down by the quiet mix and volume making u have to turn it way up if theres so much as crickets in the background
Def Leppard Live: In the Clubs, in Your Face
live trax of some of their better songs
Def Leppard Hysteria
generally like this album but there isnt a song i would actually keep in a playlist or in my overall discog
Def Leppard Pyromania
they get some elevation on here with some actual hits, aint nobody gonna forget photograph (fuck you nickledick), foolin, n rock o' ages
Deicide Legion
raw and immature but still good
Deicide Serpents of the Light
a lesser 3 but still good despite all the deathrap and partial motions going of some songs
Deicide Insineratehymn
cannibal corpse worship, but also better than anything cc have ever done
Deicide To Hell With God
not bad but nothing great, like a half assed attempt at making another stench but with plenty of leftovers from till death
Deicide In the Minds of Evil
another to hell with god album, not as good but basically the same
Delain Moth to a Flame
decent enough pop metals
Delain Lunar Prelude
always ready for some delain. turn the lights out is great and stardust is one of their best songs
Delain April Rain
never had such a case of blue balls as most of the songs on this album
Delain We Are The Others
mother machine is pure win followed by a whole field of middy middy mids
Delain Hunter's Moon
pretty decent show/ep but naturally not above their usual mid level
Demilich Regurgitation of Blood
trv dm demilich with creeper vox instead of mere burp
Demilich ...Somewhere Inside the Bowels of Endlessness...
another gud dm demo ruined by burps
Demilich Vanishing Sessions
better than anything on nespithe, actual death metal. the burps have been reduced to a mere echo and this actually sounds pretty good, if only the prog werent there i'd declare this best demilich
Demolition Hammer Tortured Existence
they wait until the 2nd half to show their trv talents
Demon Bitch Demon Bitch
demon bitchin
Demon Hunter Summer of Darkness
quite a step down from debut, a lot of s/ts raw aggression depleted for higher production and generic song writing. generally weaves between good track/bad track, not ready 2 die and beheaded are fun but awakening pisses me off, heartstrings has some real pathos, faces not as fun but still a thrashy lil thrill, title is the best track and certainly contains some of their most believable aggression, beauty is boring and long, annihilate is cool, i play dead doesnt seem like it would work but it does and i dont mind its full 5 min run time, finally coffin builder is a combination of cool nummy riffs and awkward af, rest is filler
Demon Hunter The Triptych
they get so close to actually being metal on a few tracks here, not i is badass, undying is epic (the tambourine on this n deteriorate are hilarious but i love it), relentless is a mid but could have been good track, deter is a pretty good ballad, soldiers song is groovy af, one thousand hits pretty ahrd, n the prong cover is well done and better than the orig. rest is mid-filler with ribcage being this albums awakening and tide being a v awkward and needlessly sappy/depressive slow bro that could have worked but they just chose not to
Demonaz March of the Norse
immortal lite. nothing very ear wormy here World Wide Dempa
Der Weg Einer Freiheit Noktvrn
had potential but they don't really do anything with it and i can't stand that kind of crystal clear scream in my bm. pretending haven doesnt exist
Destruction Infernal Overkill
mid to good thrash that caught on to the idea but ultimately didnt contribute to it
Destruction Cracked Brain
continues their pattern of unexemplary thrash with some random tech bits thrown in between that just ruin otherwise listenable thrash
Diabolical Funeral Queime a Igreja
decent brazilian modern bm
Diabolical Masquerade Ravendusk in my Heart
a trver but less interesting cof
Diabolical Masquerade Deaths Design
an all over the place album ever deserving the name of a diabolical masquerade
Dimmu Borgir Death Cult Armageddon
dimmy officially streamlined, essentially a rock opera with nothing offensively bad (except the inexcusable cleans) but nothing amazing or anywhere near their legendary early albums
Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me
not bad but nothing spectacular either, needs more harsh noise
Discharge State Violence State Control
continues their hear nothing sound in a more motorhead worship punk fashion
Discharge Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
more metal than punk, these are the fuckers who taught araya to yell like a dumbass
Discharge Realities of War
a stronger thicker punk sound emerges
Discharge Decontrol
a more tempered aggression than fight back with a trv solo but unfortunately squeaky clean
Discharge Fight Back
that stronger thicker sound gets dirty and more aggressive with a bit of solo work and grunty yells
Discharge Never Again / Death Dealers / Two Monstrous Nuclear Stockpiles
sum grate pnk trax
Dismember Dismember
a not bad, not amazing, somewhat nu-infused lighter dm to finish them off
Dismember The God That Never Was
a rly weird short bum that goes everywhere, sum traditional dismember dm, more than a couple mdeaf moments, sum prog yuck
Dismember Hate Campaign
shouty dmish dm with a lot of straight up weird mdeth tracks
Dissection Maha Kali
title is a lollapalooza that defines reign chaos n then its just unhallowed again so
Dissection The Somberlain (Demo)
a bad version of somberlain just like it says on the box
Dr. Dre 2001
a lot of classics on this
Dragon Fallen Angel
full on deathy vox and general thrashier outset yet isnt as good as debut. highlights in the bookends
DragonForce Reaching into Infinity
a generally good tour of the realm of dragonforce with highlights in judgement day n astral empire, but they rly need to cut out the worthless slow 'dramatic' bits cuz they suck at them
DragonForce Valley of the Damned
quite awkward in parts as would be expected for the like of dforce just beginning, but still solid
DragonForce Valley Of The Damned (Demo)
title is better than on or, black winter rulz
DragonForce In The Line Of Fire
decent live quality, cool video, tomorrows kings n fire flames sound pure win
DragonForce Warp Speed Warriors
a seemingly deliberately middling dforce album, classic modern dforce style in astro warrior and pixel prison but then also total waste filler tracks like the singles power of the triforce and especially doomsday party, not to mention the tswift cover (love when metal bands cover pop tracks but making it part of the lp just makes it another filler track). all in all an ehhh dforce album with a highlight in pixel prison
Dragonland The Battle of the Ivory Plains
lackluster until u hit the epic worlds end
Dragonland Holy War
mithril mountains n title stand a bit out on this rather mid af power bum
Dragonland Starfall
another mid af album that almost gets there dude
Dragonland Astronomy
another mid good album with a couple decenters in cassiopeia and contact
Dragonlord Dominion
shameless later dimmy rip off but lamia is pretty good
Dream Dolphin Dolphins Talk to You
Dropkick Murphys The Warrior's Code
spirit, title n auld triangle bring the jams, rest in mildly fun irish banging
Dropkick Murphys Going Out In Style
same ol' murphys highlights in memorial day and chair
Drowning Pool Sinner
prob the only album that can actually be called nu metal. harder than rock, not quite metal, better than anything fucking koyan ever did. highlights obv in bodies n i am
Drudkh Blood In Our Wells
pretty average and too drony until vichnist' and ukrayins'ka. awesome alt cover art
Drudkh A Few Lines in Archaic Ukrainian
actually rate the comp u dipshits. golden horse is pretty tight but otherwise drony drudkh
Drudkh Autumn Aurora
dreamy drudkh but it doesnt get very lucid unfortunately
Drudkh The Swan Road
sounds like a polished modern version of some bands old generic demos
Drudkh Songs of Grief and Solitude
actually pretty good instrumentals, varg shouldve taken notes
Drudkh Estrangement
more of the same drudkh scoring decently enough but not going for anything standout
Drudkh Forgotten Legends
debut drudkh best drudkh, drum rhythm used in dawn n wheel hypnotizing, but still too much filler between the goodness
Drudkh Eternal Turn of the Wheel
a return to form but nothing spectacular
Drudkh A Furrow Cut Short
drudkh in hd
Drudkh They Often See Dreams About The Spring
drudkh in hd pt 2
Drudkh Anti-Urban (33.3 RPM)
on the other hand going by the initial rip it has oblivion sounding like proper doomgaze and ashes is just a noodly drone
Drudkh Slavonic Chronicles
they kind of ruin tam gdzie but indianska is pretty good
Dungeon Serpent Promo '22
arghoslenty raw as can be mdm
Dungeon Serpent Necroscope '23
another track in vein of his 22 demo
Dwarrowdelf Of Dying Lights
tries too hard to be epic and ends up rather flat and empty instead
Dwarrowdelf Cold Lie the Ashes
goes all over the place trying to make something 'epic' but its just a scramble of random half assed metal
Ebony Pendant The Garden Of Strangling Roots
veritable 2020s pizza black
Ebony Pendant Incantation of Eschatological Mysticism
modern background bm perfect for making all your favourite vegan dishes to
Ed Sheeran Loose Change
an actually good sheeran album. little bird is captivating while the others are not mindable
Edenbridge The Grand Design
dunno what happened here. only standout moments on passion n evermore
Edenbridge Solitaire
the effort is there they just dont reach for anything spectacular and it gets unnecessarily drawling at the end
Edenfall To Gaze Longer at the Earth
within temptation/tristania + cradle is somewhere between meh and alright. highlight in forest of veils
Edenfall Under Sultry Moons and Velvet Skies
far too much doom and tristaniaisms, but still highlights in dark wings and esp wyvern child
Edward Elgar Pomp and Circumstance Military Marches, Op. 39
another case of only the most famous movement, i, worth keeping around
Edward Elgar Enigma Variations, Op. 36
mildly pleasant variations of which none particularly stand out, though 9 is close
Ekyrian Mas alla de la tempestad
decent spanish-sung lite folk memmel, highlight in el laberinto magico
Ekyrian Memorias Del Bosque
decent debut of folk rockz en espanol
Electric Masada At the Mountains of Madness
this is pretty sweet. all kinds of exploration of rhythm n speed, bombasts and subtleties, ahrd riffing and tranquil jazzing, solid jams with extra intruments. do i like the fact this is over 2 n a half hours? no, but its reasonably entertaining and worthwhile and if it does get boring it picks back up again
Elettra Storm Powerlords
starts pretty great but soon melds into a generic present pm soup, highlights in the openers higher than the stars and redemption
Eluveitie Helvetios
Skipping prologue that's bullshit and they need to fuck off with that shit. Title 3.5 pretty jammy; Luxtos 3.5; Home 2.5 filler track; Shores 2.5 more just passable filler; Scorched Earth why tf is there a qur'an recitation on here are they trying to make this album suck wtf 1; Enemy 3.5 another jam; Neverland 2.5 another filler; Rose for Epona 4 despite the pop n cheese; Havoc 4 pretty fun HAIL CAESAR; Uprising 3 narration almost makes it lower; Hope idk 3 its an ok instr; Siege 3.5 but it's too short and that last verse lyric is so fucking cringe; Alesia 3.5 doesnt rly deserve it but i appreciate what they were going for; skipping Tull another pointless narration why; Uxello 3.5 but same situ as alesia. epilogue 3 instr part is w/e fuck off with the old man though
Eluveitie The Early Years
just rating the rerecording of ven, which sounds infinitely better and is actually listenable
Eluveitie Everything Remains As It Never Was
a truly middling album from a band unsure where to go after 2 successful metal albums and an awkward foray into pure folk mania. the good and the bad seem to compete to balance each other, with would-be standout tracks like title, thoufold, kingdom, raven, and dom not fully fleshed out, while the likes of nil and ashes teeter noncommittally this way and that, with some random instrum pieces seeming to be evoc i outtakes. finally at the end we get the most complete and compact tracks in sempiternal embers and the pleasantly awkward lugdunon. a rly weird album but id say the goodness wins out in the end
Elvenking Heathenreel
a unique power/folk infusion with unusually ahrdrock vox
Elvenking Wyrd
this should be a lot better than it is, with that fiddle and metal spirit, yet every track is lackluster and incomplete
Elyose Ipso Facto
epica but in french with less talent n quite a bit of electroffects
Elysion Bring Out Your Dead
highlights are crossing over and far away. time has not worked out for these rare releases, getting ever so less impactful every release
Emperor Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire...
nero plays and dances as rome burns...
Ensiferum Victory Songs
Ad Vic 2.5; Blood 3; Death 3; Ahti 3 banjo metal; Magic 2.5; Wanderer 4.5; Sword 1.5; Dawn 3.5; Title 4
Ensiferum Suomi Warmetal
kind of hard to fuck up on an ep of famous covers. warmetal esp sounds p good siffified
Ensiferum One More Magic Potion
a couple of the better tracks for victory songz
Enslaved Ruun
the only good prog'd album
Enslaved Eld
Enslaved Below the Lights
sum kinda generic bm style rock, not bad but nothing ear catching either
Enslaved Axioma Ethica Odini
this ones actually decent esp beacon
Enslaved Heimdal
the enslaved lottery has churned up a decent album this time, highlight in caravans
Entombed Wreckage
title is the epitome of death n roll but rest is ehhhh
Entombed Uprising
entombed are a weird ass band. an album of decegood metrock with some hardcore elements here n there and panty grooves
Entombed Serpent Saints: The Ten Amendments
a final render of some decent death n roll, highlights in title n sodom
Epica Omega
abyss of time is an excellent tarja-era nightwishy track minus the worthless narration and breakdown, but skeleton key is completely ruined by extremely incongruent meshuggah chugs. other tracks are quite avg until they finally come together at the end, but vast majority of tracks need mid to heavy editing to be listenable. rivers is a nice callback to tides of time, synergize quite energetic, typical mid to good closers in twilight n title
Epica The Phantom Agony
sensorium 4 n feint 4 are masterpieces, facade 1.5 is a total fucking bore n takes this down unnecessarily, seif al din 1 is a total mess. title 3.5 is another masterpiece but maybe dont need the album extended version (scratch that hearing the single version again its too fast), rest are mid. bonus veniality 4 is a haunting masterpiece again. triumph 3.5 is a nice instrum. orchestral versions arent rly worth anything save basic instinctish
Epica The Quantum Enigma B-Sides
on one hand could easily swap some of these for the actual album, on the other are indeed b sides
Epica Epica vs Attack on Titan Songs
never watched the show cuz im not an anime boy but if it make me hap i fap
Equilibrium Armageddon
Sehnsucht 3; Erwachen 3.5; Katharsis 3; Heimat 3.5; Born to Be EPIC 3.5; Zum Horizont 3.5; Rise 2.5 SCHEISS AUF ENGLISCH; Prey 2 FICK ENGLISCH WIEDER; Helden 3.5; Koyaaniskatsi FICK DIESE UMWELTSCHUTZER SCHEISSE 1; Eternal warum zum TEUFEL ist der titel auf englisch aber der text auf Deutsch? sowieso 3
Esoctrilihum Mystic Echo From a Funeral Dimension
would you like some prog with your pizza?
Esoctrilihum Eternity Of Shaog
mix of modern n dissy bm with some folky fiddles now n again, only solid track is aelowenn tho
Estuary of Calamity The Sentencing
dt/agt mishmashed folk mdm that gets in its own way more than it ought but u still get shit like storm n summoned
Eternal Champion Retaliator
a trvly 80s prod on these decent couple tracks
Eternal Champion Terminus Est
a bleh lectro + a decent dumgum
Eternal Champion The Last King of Pictdom
decent but not too interesting 70-80s style metalz
Eternal Champion Parallel of Death
some more old style but not amazing 'eavy metulz
Eternal Tears of Sorrow A Virgin and a Whore
a kalmah album with the bpm turned down low, still appreciate aurora, prophet, n fall of man tho
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Sinner's Serenade
the most mehiest mdm that ever mehd save dirge
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Saivon Lapsi
a lot of good tunes ruined by horrible clean vox
Eucharist Demo '92
some decent raw early mdms
Europe The Final Countdown
classic hair rock with the eternally addictive and prescient title track
Evanescence The Bitter Truth
actually isnt bad. simple to the point rock songs with highlights in yeah n part of me
Ewelina Lisowska W Stronę Słonca
a polish katy perry anthem about universe conquering love
Ewelina Lisowska Ewelina Lisowska
an attempt to break into the english west with butchered english lyrics that dont even have anything to do with the polish originals. fortunately polish producers actually work on production and backing instrumentals so it sounds pretty good regardless and her english voice is decent
Ex Deo Romulus
barebones symph with a lot of total filler riffs and relying on the inherent 'romanness' to make up for lack of metal, still title is fun, alesia, invictus, and final war are good with heavy editing, and the intrumental pantheon is prob the best developed track on the bum besides title
Exmortus The Sound of Steel
amateur trad/mdm but maws of hell is pretty fun
Exodus Shovel Headed Kill Machine
some hot bangs in raze and the appropriately titled magnus opus but not a lot special otherwise
Exodus Exhibit B: The Human Condition
first half is good modern thrash esp beyond the pale but then goes down into this nude muddly shouting trying to be dm bs in 2nd half and its like wtf where'd the fucking band go
Exodus Persona Non Grata
i take it back these old timers still have some ferocity in em, esp on tracks like clickbait....whose title is unfortunate but thats this world le sigh
Exodus War Is My Shepherd
title track is win, others meh, dirty deeds disappointing
Exodus 1982 Demo
prod sucks songs good
Eye of Melian Doorway of Night
pretty good trax
Eyehategod In the Name of Suffering
has some trv sludge that gets in the groove but still nothing essential
Fairyland Osyrhianta
hidden kingdom is a jam but otherwise standard pm fare
Falconer Falconer
what a shift. mithotyn was better in every way, this is just alright
Falconer Chapters from a Vale Forlorn
not worth cancelling mithotyn over but some bangers like decadence n life
Falconer Northwind
falconer have a bad habit of always having a small collection of rly good songs then mixing it in with a bunch of mid afs and no goods. in this case title n shadows are the highlights
FalKKonE Intense Symphonic Metal Covers, Vol. 12
random and not as quality but fight on, greatest warrior, and amusement park stand out. mii plaza is one of the weirdest things for sure
Fatboy Slim You've Come a Long Way, Baby
how to deejay 101
Fight The Fury Still Breathing
when a rock band tries to be heavier-ish, kinda. not really. they add a few ahrd grooves n mccore references. my demons is actually pretty decent, some fillery tracks, then a shameless slipknot psychosocial ripoff in lose hold lmaoooo its great. LLMMAAAAOOO even the lyrics - "hope is gone / all is lost" and "psychoanalyze" sounding a bit too similar in beat to "psychosocial" jesus man lmao
Finntroll Vredesvävd
srry is this kalmah? straightforward folky tunes with a big mdm vibe, nothing too special save the keys clinching on vid haxans
Finsterforst #YØLØ
finntroll to the max, these guys are the ones who want to go out of your way to hang out with
First Fragment Gloire Eternelle
this is the only acceptable techdeath, balance noodles with melonoodles
First Fragment Dasein
decent debut, intervals are annoying tho
Five Finger Death Punch And Justice for None
an actually good 5fdp album. highlights in trouble and fake
Flames Made in Hell
very mid thrash with no highlights
Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac
some huge hits mired in the bog of mediocrity
Floor Jansen Paragon
not bad, daydream goes ahrd
Flotsam and Jetsam Doomsday for the Deceiver
this debut kind of sucks. they got the flair n energy but somehow make it bland. not a single standout
Flotsam and Jetsam No Place for Disgrace
much like their debut, his screams are godly and theres nothing really wrong with it but they never go for the kill
Foo Fighters Foo Fighters
thicc punk rocks that dont always hit it right but do most of the time
Forest Forest
the russian transilvanian hunger (considerably better)
Forest Stream The Crown of Winter
could have been pretty excellent, title track is a masterpiece and the key tone throughout the album is pure magic when its used. unfortunately they otherwise only yield a moderate effort and soon devolve into total doomy somnolence
Fort Minor We Major (Mixtape)
fun remixes n random shit
Franz Schubert 4 Impromptus, D.935
i, ii, and especially iv have their moments but quite a bit of lackadaisical filler to get to them
Frederic Chopin Waltzes, Op. 69
not his most exciting waltz but he was also only 19 so. 69 ;)
Frehley's Comet Frehley's Comet
a lot of this is rly lame but more good than bad, highlights in something moved and calling to you
Frog Concert Slumbering Sounds of the Frog Fellowship
Frosttide Blood Oath
moar amateur siffy clone mdm but apache dances n bangkok cover is pure win
Frosttide Dawn Of Frost
generic af melodeath
Frozen Crown Winterbane
duo vox are minimal again but mondelli sort of knows how to scream now, but what makes this album superior to its immediate predecessor is the recruitment of cutie queen sheena on lead guitar as well as a new more bombastic drummer
Frozen Crown Crowned in Frost
a disappointing sophy, the harmonized duo vox arent used nearly as much and when they are the male vox are so overshadowed the effect is virtually powerless, a lot less 'core vox, for w/e reason a few random harsh lines exist on a couple tracks and are even more needless. standard pm basically
Frozen Crown Call of the North
mid af pm bum, there's nothing unique to them anymore, no dual singing, lame male cleans, tho the effect on her voice sounds decent and sometimes piercing. best tracks are the singles, title and victorious
Frozen Land Frozen Land
decent but by no means amazing power metulz, best tracks delusions and mask
Frozen Shield Deafening Woods
a comb of siffy, korpi, a good deal of awkwardness, and their own good ideas, best track is green beards
Fuath II
avg atmoblack
Fuath I
same as ii but rawer
Funeral Mist Salvation
transition bm from classic to modern, its not that great
Gaerea Unsettling Whispers
proggy behemoth
Galneryus Resurrection
first half is a more maideny dforce and isnt bad, 2nd half goes full generic anime opening n is bleh save most of destiny
Galneryus Angel of Salvation
anime dragonforce with a side of prog n maiden
Galneryus Phoenix Rising
chain n especially future never dies stand out on an otherwise unnotable anime metal album
Galneryus Advance To The Fall
how this can contain so much filler is beyond me, ancient rage is a near perfect track with a few other wins like silent revelation and whisper
Galneryus Vetelgyus
avg galner
Galneryus Into the Purgatory
absolutely mid af until the end of the line
Galneryus Ultimate Sacrifice
pretty balanced anime metal album with no highlights
Galneryus Voices from the Past II
not as good song selection on this cover ep but still much better galneryused up
Galneryus Shining Moments
title is some great anime metal, others unusually rocky alrights
Galneryus Voices from the Past III
some more lesser picks but they make them as trv as possible
Galneryus Beginning of the Resurrection
destiny is great followed by some decent saps
GAME FREAK Pokémon Black & Pokémon White
finally after 6 hours and 20 minutes (didnt realize just how expansive the soundtrack is), most of it as often is the case only goes with the game. my favourites include skyarrow bridge, castelia city (love it! so happy :D), opelucid city, n decisive battle, pokemon league, route 12 in summer, global terminal, village bridge acoustic, and kyurem battle
GAME FREAK Pokémon Gold, Silver & Crystal
most of this just sounds like rby b sides, but still some wins in lucky channel (ftw), legendary beast battle, dragons den, route 26/27, ss aqua, kanto gym leader, mt moon square, champion/red battle, entering the hall of fame, and the credits
Gamma Ray Somewhere Out in Space
beyond n title are strong tracks as generally are the first half of the album, but beyond that its gets boring as they lay in tropes with no substance
GBH Leather, Bristles, Studs and Acne
good but not standout punk
Gehenna Murder
competing with mayhem to end up with this 2000s prod proggened bm
George Frideric Handel 12 Grand Concertos, Op. 6 / HWV 319-330
an exhausting collection of concertos, and the vast majority of them not particularly satisfying either. nevertheless for the patient treasure lies at the end of the trail, for 328 v, 330 iii and v are highlights, 329 i is gorgeous, and 330 ii is not only gorgeous but one of my favourite pieces ever
George Frideric Handel Messiah, HWV 56
takes a while to get into as the first 1/3 - 1/2 is quite boring, but elevates thuswards to result in the epicity that is hallelujah and the closing movements
George Frideric Handel Wassermusik, Suite nr. 1 in F-dur, HWV 348
basic background classical, nothing particularly interesting
George Frideric Handel Organ Concerto in F major, HWV 295
an okay piece but like much of handel a lot to be desired
Ghost (SWE) Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic
pretty good spoopy rock songs
Ghost (SWE) Ceremony and Devotion
good song selection, lol @ tobias calling mummy dust heavy
Ghost Bath Funeral
a lot of awkward screams n pointless instrumentals (sorrow is particularly forced) but still good tracks overall
Ghosts of Atlantis
a kind of amateur symphonic amorphis, no track is especially well done but theres generally more positive than negative, save gardens of athena and lost compass which are solid and welcome finishers
Ghosts of Atlantis Halls of Lemuria
a mix of genres but the master of none
Glacier (USA-OR) Glacier
a cool (AHAHAAHAHAHAAHA) 80s ep without any powzers
Glacier (USA-OR) The Passing of Time
bold to come back 35 years later and hell yeah they still kick it. good for a spin with a highlight in eldest and trvest
Glacier (USA-OR) Vendetta (1985 Original)
good but not stellar hetal track
Glacier (USA-OR) Sands of Time (1985 Instrumental Rehearsal)
pretty good instrum track
Gloryhammer Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards
immaculately designed to be neither that great nor ever dull either
Goatwhore The Eclipse Of Ages Into Black
feral blackrash like it says on the tin
God Dethroned Bloody Blasphemy
distinctly mid melobleath
Gods of Gaia As Daylight Dies
a mix of amateur mdm n symph. the low level dm vox often distract from the otherwise decent instrumentation and sometimes break it. still a valid effort however with a highlight in i want out
Goodnight Nurse Our Song
Gorement Human Relic
a bit of a silly demo
Gorement Promo 1995
finishing off their career with some silly melodeath
Gorgoroth Antichrist
very short front heavy bm release with highlights in bergtrollets hevn and band track minus the filler
Gorgoroth Destroyer
nothing amazing but basically a progenitor for krallicey bm
Gorgoroth A Sorcery Written in Blood
Gorguts Considered Dead
classic canadian dm m/
Gosia Andrzejewicz Lustro
intro n/a; title amazing track with genuine pathos 5; ty decy dumb slow rap track 2; troche subtle but has a big impact 3.5; sila total party feel good track 4; piekno almost good 2.5; latino dumb filler track she doesnt sound so good in english, spanish is kind of hot 2; blisko shes always inviting these crappy rappers for some reason 2; refleksje slow almost filler track 2; zlo rocker track different from her usual style 3.5; zanim a slower song with some impact but not a ton 2.5
Gosia Andrzejewicz Gosia Andrzejewicz
great choruses and vocal lines, more effort put into the extra effects and making something worth hearing than any pop across the atlantic, but then also more than a few missteps that prevent it from reaching any higher, highlight in cud
Gosia Andrzejewicz Gosia Andrzejewicz Plus
disc 1 (st): great choruses and vocal lines, more effort put into the extra effects and making something worth hearing than any pop across the atlantic, but then also more than a few missteps that prevent it from reaching any higher, highlight in cud; disc 2: highlight in pozwol zyc dunno why it wasnt on the original album, a horrible anglicized version of it in i dont want that has nothing to do with the original lyrics, english words is pretty good, other weird anglicanisms, otherwise unnotable; bonuses: all st0ne's remixes are funny, instrums are great, accapellas are weird
Gosia Andrzejewicz Docen To
a happy snappy polish slappy

Grand Belial's Key Judeobeast Assassination
rather midgoodgreat melodacks, highlight in satanicunt
Grand Belial's Key Kosherat
another mid album with a highlight in on a mule rides
Grand Belial's Key Goat of a Thousand Young
shemhamforash with intro is great but the rest is rather minimal, silly joker screams, production damn good for a debut 1992 demo
Grand Belial's Key A Witness to the Regicide EP
nothing too crazy on this but a decent listen
Grand Belial's Key On a Mule Rides the Swindler
title is a great gbk track followed by a really crappy live recording
Grave Digger Witch Hunter
high energy general metulz synchronous with a band that would put out a billion albums
Graveland Ogień Wilczych Serc
the bia?y vite? side much better than the graveland side, much more folky than the motions going gland with a highlight in na swoj miecz
Graveland Cold Winter Blades
pretty solid ep. the asian guitar on white winged hussary is particularly beautiful
Graveland Fire Chariot of Destruction
on par with gland's other better shit, war wolf is pure win
Graveland Wotan Wit Mir
an actually good ep, like a mellower immortal. rainbow bridge is pure win. cant believe the extra-triggerable blood faithful to soil is actually on spotify
Graveland Prawo Stali
polish version of creed of iron. 2nd best graveland, as good as bathory's best albums. bonus tracks on remaster are fillery though, sounds better in polish
Graveland Świt Stalowych Ostrzy
polish edition of dawn of iron blades. certainly the most standout graveland album, highlight in u boku walkirii. has a bit of a different musical tone than the rest. pretty funny spot has this but not the english version derp
Graveland The Celtic Winter
this ones actually pretty good you should check it out poseur
Graven Image Demo 1987
Better than what they did as spectral incursion. decent rockin old school techthrash. the track spectral incursion itself is bomb
Graveworm Ascending Hate
a bit of a return to form as its all composed nicely but nevertheless a watered down perfectly polished graveworm yuck
Graveworm Collateral Defect
gworm go full on party bm as exemplified by the lolzwin hero cover
Graveworm Diabolical Figures
another watered down pop blasymph bum
Green Day Nimrod
solid and energetic album, but no trv bangers
Grim Reaper See You In Hell
a fun 'eavy record with a highlight in title
Grot Forest of Shadows
an overly raw veneer of a decent bm track
Grotesque In the Embrace of Evil
Grotesque Rehearsal Demo
now this is a dark demo. they had some trv in them before going bitchcore
Gudsforladt Friendship, Love and War
another postblack gazey mid without much going for it
Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction
guns n' roses
Guns N' Roses Live from the Jungle
some generally appreciable live butt
Gustav Holst The Planets, Op. 32
jupiter is the king amongst a range of mid movements
H-Bomb Coup de métal
decent thrash in french by the one n only h-bomb
Hadadanza Juglar
decent chill lite folk rock en espanol
Hallas Excerpts From a Future Past
pretty great metallic folky prog rock
Hampton The Hampster Hampsterdance the Album
Hanternoz Spukgeschichten - Anciennes légendes des Alpes
decent little bm split, tannod with trad, rauhnacht with atmo, hanternoz with folk
Hath All That Was Promised
eh its alright. evangelion x der weg with unfortunate prog influences
Hath Hive
more or less straight up modern dm with occasional lapses into mdm n prog
Haunter (USA-TX) Sacramental Death Qualia
a further step down from debut as they decide to a more dso route, but fortunately the core bm aspects remain as the main course. makes me worry for their new album tho
Haunter (USA-TX) Discarnate Ails
luckily better than i thought it would be. they stick to a kind of epic mostly trad death tech this time around, not enough to rly arouse me but i like it enough. sum1 gift me this so i can has gengar?
Heavy Load Riders Of The Ancient Storm
ride the night is great but then they decide they dont wanna party anymore
Heavy Load Death or Glory
yesh pola bear RAWR! general 'eavy metalz but nothing quite so epic as that fight
Heidevolk Velua
another largely plain effort, but woede n storm stand out. bonus covers are fun
Heidevolk De Strijdlust Is Geboren
much more folk than metal, bookends are nice tho. bonuses are much better
Heidevolk Uit Oude Grond
a disappointing follow up to walhalla, just plain folk metal nothing special
Hellbastard Ripper Crust
blueballs you with thrashy punk thinking theyre gonna go metal, then does go thrash on life for who and its a moderate orgasm, but then back to pure crust with a bit more thrash on slag kill and nowwwwwwwww
Hellbastard Hate Militia
Helleruin Devils, Death and Dark Arts
he tried too hard and ended up with basic modern bm. he has lost the trv
Helleruin A Thousand Dreams
mid overly polished modern bm
Hellhammer Triumph Of Death
not the best quality or riffs, but still a rockin slice of trv
Hellhammer Apocalyptic Raids
look at all these poseurs. yea its not that great and the screams are silly af but the guitar tone is classic
Helloween Walls of Jericho
they hadnt quite found the pm magic yet except on tears
Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys Part II
markedly better than part i with a highlight in eagle
Helloween Rabbit Don't Come Easy
not as bad as you'd expect given the pink bubbles derp title, highlight in little sign
Helloween Just a Little Sign
great title track with a queen cover n an ok track
Helloween Judas
not as good but still good hellow ep
Hellvetic Frost Towards a Distant World
a short and rather watain like bm venture
Hellwitch Terraasymmetry
mid deathrash with tech blehs
Henry Purcell Sonata in D major, Z.850
a decent short sonata accentuating the trumpet
Heretoir Heretoir
p good blackgaze bum i was hypnotized
High Rise II
decently swimmable tide esp the epic pop sicle
Hilary Duff Hilary Duff
pretty balanced record culminating in watching
Holograms Holograms
cool spacey punks with occasional always welcome lectryfects
Holy Moses Death Bells
dear friends another heavy with sabinas crone rasps and another ensuing venom reference, call of the demon is thrashy sabbath, wisdom of world pure sabbath worship. dunno what demo it was originally on but bursting rest is a cool venomy track
Holy Moses Heavy Metal
wisdom is pure sabbath worship, walpurgis is a nice heavy/thrash, torches a maideny instrum, dont mess bitch a highly repeated heavy riff with witchy rasps and a mighty scream
Hoobastank The Reason
actually have great energy, highlights in same direction and i can still get into title after hearing it 1000000 times
Hoplites Τ​ρ​ω​θ​η​σ​ο​μ​έ​ν​η
does some cool things with the dissonant tone but ultimately underwhelming
How to Care for Flowers For a Brief Moment I Felt the Sun’s Warmth…
great keys on i but wish it crescendoed into something more, good pemo vox, great melodic riffs n timing, mixing is on point. great groove on ii, but the harsh vox arent rly necessary n the derpcore is a jarring anticlimax. iii good provocation between saccharinity n subject matter, unexpected but welcome deathvox flow seamlessly, tho the sudden transition from that to lofty japanese chanting is awkward and too soon. overall interested in more
Hulder Vessel of Suffering
a mid single release
Hulder Evil's Incubation
too ahrd try evil
Hulder Upon Frigid Winds
a decent enough track
Hulder Embraced by Darkness Mysts
p good indie bms
Hypocrisy Into the Abyss
avg middling mdm
Hypocrisy The Fourth Dimension
they start getting melodic and the quality goes way down
Hypocrisy Abducted
continuation of the dece-bleh mdeath with a lot of slow movers in the 2nd half for some reason
Hypocrisy Catch 22
mdm hypoc with a smattering of nude muddly stylistics, doesnt sound that bad but nothing too catchy either
Hypocrisy Rest in Pain EP
not a bad demo by any means
Iced Earth Night of the Stormrider
first half is great metal but then they go all alt maideny and its not so fun
Illvilja Endless Rivers
basically graveland x early dimmu. nothing too interesting but some pretty good parts on truth and dark waters is a keeper
Illvilja I stormens öga
much more middling than his later albums, no highlights just reg atmoblack
Illvilja As the World Sleeps
debut actually showed some potential, too bad it didnt show up again until his 4th
Illvilja Where No Sorrow Dwells
another largely plain modern atmoblack bum with an actually great track in from
Immolation Close to a World Below
close to mah butthole. indeed, as this is some airy, light dm, like a fart
Immortal All Shall Fall
title is a party, rest is amazingly produced but just kind of ehh it's pretty good songs
Immortal Northern Chaos Gods
another solid but unspectacular album from these old timers. maybe if the silly legal dispute didnt occur abbath would have made it stellar. they cant possibly conquer blashyrkh without him
Immortal Souls Wintereich
a more streamlined ice sculpture nevertheless with highlights in nightfrost and frozen inside
Immortal Souls Wintermetal
a little too obsessed with snow but first snow 3.5 p epic intro; calm 4 despite the breakdowns; dawn 3.5 does a kind of 1000 eyes riff; trail 2.5 some rly awkward riffs and gets dangerously close to mccore; inverno (2) pretty pointless instru; snowstorm 3.5 some awkward riffs; cold 3.5 also some awk riffs but chorus more than makes up for it, easily best clean track theyve ever done; grave 3 some good riffs but lacks overall; solitude 2 this sucks; title 2 also sucks save the solo
Impaled Nazarene Pro Patria Finlandia
some cool ideas but nothing spectacular
Impaled Nazarene Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz
the silly side of black thrash
Impending Doom The Serpent Servant
this is the only time i'll be giving a derpcore album a 3. they take the generally worthless dcore sound n manage to do sthg with it most of the time. first half is p solid, anything goes n conquerors are fun. get a bunch of stupid crap after that tho, an appealing riff or breakdown here n there. vox are almost dm furthering the generally better quality than ur whitechapel shit, n they keep the spooky atmosphere as on debut, tho a lot of lyrics about as reeted as it gets
In Flames I, the Mask (Arcade Version)
holy shit this is infinitely better than anything they've done in decades. dunno if this or equilibrium's 8 bit renegades is better
In Flames The Jester Race
moon 4; j dance 2.5; art rain 3; grave 2; hypnos 3; dead 3; title 3.5; flower 3; way 3; god 2.5
In Flames Clayman
top heavy classic rocky mdm that falls over after title
In Flames Black-Ash Inheritance
decent little showcase of the long dead flames
In Flames Subterranean
pretty damn good ep from the olden days, too bad forss didnt do any more with them, forss dead eternity is better than anders
In Flames Bullet Ride
the amazing bullet ride brought down ahrd by ordinary story and esp episode derpderpderp
Inanna Converging Ages
isnt the worst prog, sticks to straight bm/dm for the most part
Inanna Void of Unending Depths
moar brutal blackened ahaby dm thats not all that bad
Incantation Entrantment of Evil
rough hewn but passable dm giving them traction
Incantation Blasphemous Cremation
solid as usual but too much doom, eternal torture is a jam n a half
Incantation Sect of Vile Divinities
last 2 tracks are great but the rest is too doomy n mid
Incantation Blasphemy
mid album, thanks for making me sort through half an hour of near silence u jackasses
Incantation The Infernal Storm
eh they get a little tired n release their first bleh
Incantation Unholy Deification
nothing rly special on here, could be age, boredom, motiongsgoing as they have consistently released a bum every 3 years just like the core pokemon games
Incantation Ungodly Satanic Death Metal
a very raw quiet lofi recording of forsaken mourning with bdm vox
Incantation Reh.1.3.90
for what can be made out, a pretty good dm demo
Incantation Demo #1
a solid almost albumable demo
Incantation Thieves of the Cloth
some fairly deathy incantations
Inferi (USA) The End of an Era
a direct spawn of black dahlia yet significantly more metal and dare i say enjoyable, voldemort just does it better
Infester Darkness Unveiled
eh they did the best they could with what they had
Inquisition Obscure Verses for the Multiverse
damn he actually sounds decent on this one. an off kilter mellower immortal
Inquisition Anxious Death
for fun black/thrash that doesnt sound anything like the sheer crap of their lps
Inquisition Forever Under
inquisition making actual metal but too much prog
Insane Clown Posse Jugganauts: The Best of Insane Clown Pos
first third or so just great fun offensive as can be party lectryraps, but middle tracks calm it down and mellow th'energy, then randomly tracks with RIFFS, then a series of rnb anecdotal sillies, is this reflective of their discog? does possing (aha!) this officially make me a juggalo? one things for sure these are certified INSANE CLOWNS
Insomnium Heart Like a Grave
damn an actually bad somnium album. best track was neverlast i guess
Insomnium Ephemeral
damn the only actual song is great but it would score higher if it were more ephemeral
Insomnium Demo '99
decent mdms but nothing amazing
Insomnium Argent Moon
conjurer is good followed by mid tracks ruined by clean vox
Insomnium Songs of the Dusk
more watered down sommy. in their old age theyre emphasizing more the sleepy part than the visual aspect of an insomnium
Insomnium Weather the Storm
a great track followed by a pointless instrum
IOSYS ワァオ!ハイパー電波チャン -ARM商業作品集-
damn this is some kawaii dance party shit
Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time
wasted years is my favourite maiden track oat, title is good as well as sea, but then it just goes on to stagnate and i keep asking them to go back to the first half of the album
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
alternates between trv metal and prog slog, smartly selected bookends are the main wins
Iron Maiden Maiden Japan (Complete Concert)
as much paul di'anno as you can handle
Iron Maiden Live at the Rainbow
good show
Iron Maiden Raising Hell
mid show, dumb magic act
James Ferraro Live at Primavera Sound 2012
was pretty great folky techno until the advent of the repeated vocal lines made it suck
Jay-Z Reasonable Doubt
smooth n generally entertaining throughout
Jay-Z and Linkin Park Collision Course
pretty good collab tbh
Jeff Mills Waveform Transmission Vol.1
fun album
Johann Sebastian Bach Christmas Oratorio BWV 248
full on oratorios are the least fun genre of classical, and more so when theyre in german. bach's christmas oratorio is no exception, though no 1 is pretty good
Johann Sebastian Bach The Well-Tempered Clavier II BWV 870-893
the vast majority of these are quite lethargic and boring, nevertheless a couple small treasures exist in the preludes to 891 and 892
Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 in B♭ major, BWV 1051
pretty motions going for what we call classical. few notable moments, the kind of background music u throw into your film bc u cant afford any copyright, allegro iii gets the most allegro-y tho
Johann Sebastian Bach Harpsichord Concerto No. 3 in D major, BWV 1054
the incredibly dull adagio brings this down a lot, i. allegro repeats too much
Johann Sebastian Bach Wenn wir in höchsten Nöthen sein, BWV 641
a final choral prelude
Johann Strauss II Kunstlerleben, Op. 316
a more mild but still pompous work of the strauss
Johann Strauss II Fruhlingsstimmen, Op. 410
a frolicsome waltz by the frolicsome waltz master
Johann Strauss II Wein, Weib und Gesang, Op. 333
( ? ?? ?) ( ? ?? ?) ( ? ?? ?)
Johann Strauss II Wo die Zitronen bluhen, Op. 364
classic strauss with a touch of lemon
Johannes Brahms Sixteen Waltzes, Op. 39
you come here for no. 15, otherwise general classical
Johannes Brahms 21 Hungarian Dances, WoO 1
generally amusing but you're really only here for no. 5
Johannes Brahms Haydn Variations, Op. 56a
a rather bland variation, perhaps the piano version is better
John Fahey Death Chants, Breakdowns and Military Waltzes
its alright. feels like we're gonna go billybobby joel sometimes but it never does, actual guitar music
Journey Frontiers
separate ways n edge of the blade shine on an album of mehs to ehs
Judas Iscariot The Cold Earth Slept Below
a fair enough american bandwagoning
Judas Priest Stained Class
jp cement their metal glory with exciter and title amongst general rockins
Judas Priest Screaming for Vengeance
electric eye and title excise jps 5th n 6th metal songs, rest righteous 80s rock classics highlight in title
Judas Priest Defenders of the Faith
more metal than any previous but a top heavy album, highlights in jawbreaker and sentinel
Judas Priest Painkiller
the metal is galvanized and yet songs are weaker than ram it down, highlight in title
Judas Priest Nostradamus
jp put on a veritable mrock opera, a fair enough endeavour even if they dont exceed in it, pestilence n plague as well as exiled are pretty epic
Jumpin' Jesus The Art of Crucifying
some midgood osdm with occasional great moments but nothing too exciting
pretty ahrd n cool lectrix, occasional adolescent vox unnecessary
Kalmah Swampsong
Heroes 3.5; Burbot 3.5; Cloned 3; Third 2.5; Bird 2; Doubt 2; Tordah 3; Man 3; Moon 3.5; (Suo 2.5) the most butchered of their albums, barely scrapes by as a 3
Kalmah They Will Return
Hollow 3.5; Hell 2.5; Principal 2; Human 2.5; Title 3; Kill 2; Blind 2.5; Nation 4.5; Skin 3 a disappointing sequel to swamplord with weak hooks and too many high vox
Kalmah For the Revolution
Title 4; Dead 4.5; Holy 2.5; Wings 2; Ready 1; Sky 2; Out 3.5; Coward 2; Slave 3.5 an awkward and pretty horrible sequel to the magnum opus that was black waltz
Kalmah Seventh Swamphony
Title 3.5; Dead 3; Pike 3; Hollo 2.5; Wind 3.5; Wolves 3; Marten 3.5; Trapper 3.5 pretty silly poppy mdm but still mostly fun
Kalmankantaja Viimeinen Virsi
dark modern fi barebones bm
Kamelot The Fourth Legacy
holy balls an actually good kamelot album. they still shoot themselves in the feet but not as badly, highlights in title and shadow of uther
Kamelot Epica
another mixed bag but better kamelot album. nothing intolerable with highlights in center universe, feast vain, n lost n damned
Kamijo Heart
this project started about as cringe as it looks
Kanye West Late Registration
great skits again, beats are on point, highlights in drive and and bonus track version of diamonds
Kataxu Hunger of Elements
hate the crystal clear production. band tries too hard to sound epic and it falls flat. they forget to be trv

beautiful woman, nice voice, but the arrangements ruin much of these classics songs, especially hallelujah, it's played far too quickly
Kelly Clarkson My December
solid pop rocks almost evanescency, esp haunted
Kim Petras Spotify Singles
hills is a fun ( ?� ?? ?�) track and human is beautiful, better than the original despite only an acoustic backing
King Diamond Abigail
a splurge of midriffs n squealing
King Diamond Voodoo
awesome cover, loa house is win, continues the momentum for a while but ends up only mid good
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard PetroDragonic Apocalypse; or, Dawn of Eternal Night: An Annihilation of...
prog mrock dun right. highlights in dragon and 1st half of flamethrower
KISS Sonic Boom
it only took them 35 years to come out with a consistent album holy shiiiiit
Kittie Spit
Knife Heaven Into Dust
good energy, dangerously close to lindberg vox that almost ruin it, no track rly goes for the gold save gods in the dark somewhat
Koji Kondo The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask OST
a lot of reused tracks from oot but cool new ones include clock tower, the clock town day themes, pirates fortress, catch and trail meet again
Koji Kondo Super Mario World
winners include overworld, fortress, boss battle, valley of bowser (hellz yeah), and the evil king bowser
Korpiklaani Tales Along This Road
another solid album of folky fun
Korpiklaani Spirit Of The Forest
too many instr tracks and shaman outtakes but they get the strings strummin and nice for a listen
Korpiklaani Voice Of Wilderness
where tf is the review for this one?!!? excellent production and generally better songs than debut, but begins to taper in the second half nearly a 3.5 BEER BEER BITCHES
Korpiklaani Ukon Wacka
some real bangers on here like louhen n vaarinpolkka, groovy korvesta
Krallice Dimensional Bleedthrough
generally solid but much more linear except monolith
Krallice Years Past Matter
krallice getn bored cant even be arsed to press more than one key naming these things
Kreator Pleasure to Kill
mid deathrash birthed from listening to possessed n slayer a few too many times
Kreator Gods of Violence
first half is great powermetally thrash but then nosedives with embarrassments esp side by side
Kreator Coma of Souls
decent thrash album, gets better near the end
Kreator Extreme Aggression
extreme middession thrash
Krisiun The Great Execution
uniquely toned deathrash with nothing too exemplary nevertheless fun for an occasional listen. will to potency and extincao are the more standout tracks
Krisiun Conquerors of Armageddon
an album of uniquely tribal but also somewhat annoying dm
Kull Singles
decent to fill a craving but not very masterful
Kult Posłuchaj to do Ciebie (1992 Bonus)
cant deny the energy and lyrical prowess, highlights piosenka mlodych and polska
L.A. Guns Cocked & Loaded
l.a. gunz are funz, highlight in magdalaine
Lacey Sturm Non-Album Singles
p good alt procks but nothing exceptional
Lady Luna and the Devil Cold October Nights
KITTY!!!!!!! pet sematary cover is cute, wife metal, vampire is mid
Leaves' Eyes Meredead
constantly flirts on that good vs great line but never actually crosses over
Leaves' Eyes Vinland Saga
first 2/3s is incredibly lethargic and would have earned this a 2.5, but new found land (best track) onward is solid
Leaves' Eyes Lovelorn
liv kristine is awesome, but the intrumentation often lags behind. highlight in norwegian lovesong tho, that is done just right
Leaves' Eyes Symphonies of the Night
solid bum without any highlights sadface
Leaves' Eyes The Last Viking
varangians and ravens are great but the rest is mid af
Leaves' Eyes My Destiny
bunch of midgoods n more pop rocks
Leaves' Eyes Riders on the Wind
great title track, acoustics not giving as much power as they should be but accentuate her voice
Leaves' Eyes Chain of the Golden Horn
some rather easygoing but decent pop folks
Leaves' Eyes Myths Of Fate
forged by fire and realm of dark waves are amazing but rly nothing that touches them after that
not dead yet and foreigner shine on an otherwise unstellar ep
Lee Aaron Metal Queen
starts great with bangers in title and lady of the darkest night, but then meanders to mostly mids with some dece tracks. steal away your love is intense
Legion of the Damned The Poison Chalice
first four tracks are absolute shit but then they pick it up with the highlight of behold the beyond and the rest of the album is pretty good mdm. chimes and beheading are also personal picks
Les Ramoneurs de Menhirs Amzer an dispac'h
bagpipe n bombardon driven folk rock sung in english, french, and breton, tho gwenael gets somewhat annoying at times
Les Ramoneurs de Menhirs Breizh Anok
decent bagpipe driven folk rock en bretogne oy oy oy!!
Limbonic Art Rehearsal 1996 [Demo]
midgood black symphs largely ruined by static
Limbonic Art Promo Rehearsal '95
eve of midnight is excellent but then it just gets more and more mid, alien noises notwithstanding
Limbonic Art The Ultimate Death Worship
the ultimate dimmy worship
Limbonic Art Legacy of Evil
by the numbers blasymph the album
Lindsey Stirling Warmer in the Winter
a christmas album that isnt cringe. most tracks simply sound better than usual on lindsey's violin, with her rendition of carol of the bells an actual masterpiece. still have the untalented singers on some tracks but its w/e for the most part. wander as i wonder is great as well but would have been better without the vocals
Ling Tosite Sigure Just a Moment
pretty good melodic overclocked procks
Linkin Park Meteora
prob the best of alt/nu effects after red and demhunt st, dont stay, faint, habit, n ofc numb hit ahrd
Linkin Park In The End: Live & Rare
gud tracks
Linkin Park Underground 3
gud trax

another pretty good demo ep with most tracks from early on
Liturgy H.A.Q.Q.
liturgy u so silly
Liv Kristine River of Diamonds
leaves eyes with minimal riffs and her name spelled right
Living Sacrifice Death Machine
mildly pleasant nu deathrash
Lord (FRA) Black Moon Preacher
lord's last effort is some plain classic bm with an only ok bathory cover
Lord Belial Rapture
not a great album by any measure but legion, throne of souls, and infinite darkness and death are fun
Lord Belial Angelgrinder
lord belial enters the new millenium with a rather mild offering, scourge of war is pretty
Lord Wind The Forest Is My Kingdom
some nice folk instrums with polish lady vox, highlights in chants and pagantiga
Loreena McKennitt To Drive the Cold Winter Away
wonderfully lofty voice but instrumentation is overly minimal
Loreena McKennitt The Book of Secrets
lorey returns with fairly pleasant folk dreams
Lost Horizon Awakening the World
standard pm with a little cheeky tomfoolery
Ludacris Word Of Mouf
love ludacris n his shenanigans
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125
not the best beety but he was deaf n dying so
Ludwig van Beethoven "Pathétique" Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13
actually one of beety's more boring works. if you want your friends to get into classical don't show them this
Ludwig van Beethoven Rage Over a Lost Penny in G Major, Op. 129
an amusing child-like ditty one cannot possibly detest, along with a gripping chorus
Ludwig van Beethoven Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor "Für Elise", WoO 59
the main bars the world is familiar with are great however the interluding accoutrements leave something to be desired and almost detract from the piece overall
Luke Faulkner Gates of Avar
more string led pieces that don't quite reach his solo piano efforts
Luke Faulkner Vignette
has daydreaming and midnight waltz, nothing else too gripping
Machine Head Unto The Locust
dafuq did i just give mh a 3? fuck me i did. title track is pretty good n nice rockin motion throughout
Machine Head Bloodstone And Diamonds
another 3 for the machine. sounds like a harder flames n im a sucker for classical strings. game over is such a punky jam
Machine Head Arrows in Words from the Sky
damn this is actually good, prob just raising the stakes for a total thrashcore album again tho
Magnum Chase the Dragon
classic epic rock with pleasantly welcome extras. soldier, hour, n earth are win
Mairo Déjeuner en paix
this ones pretty good, didnt know francais could rapper this udre
Majestica Glory of Christmas
a decently spirited chrimassy track
Majestica A Christmas Carol
haha jesus christ cuz christmas i get it. but yeah this was fucking weird, but good, but weird, but good, highlights in ghost of christmas past and the joy of christmas
Malevolent Creation Retribution
weak vox, mid riffs, only posing for the classic production
Malfet The Way to Avalon
decent dumgums with nothing in particular standing out. bitch runescape music is better than this
Manilla Road Crystal Logic
riffs are great but what are those indie/psych vox on the first few tracks. highlight in the ram
Manowar Hail to England
gettin more epic but no keepers
Mantas Live Tape #1
as much as i love my demos this is pretty unlistenable, save once again evil dead sounding trv with shrieky screams, cool that they did a poison cover even if you cant hear shit
Mantas Rehearsal #2
a rly crappy barely audible 2 track reh
Marauder Face the Mirror
decentish average playin with tha boyz power mutul that almost goes on too long for me to 3
Marduk Wormwood
typical modern bm, funeral dawn is fun tho
Marduk Dark Endless
avg death metal with hoarse shrieks
Marduk Opus Nocturne
they have some cool ideas to bring to the bm table but never follow through, and thus leave themselves in the dust compared to everything else coming out in 94
Marilyn Manson The Pale Emperor
fuck me an actually good manson album
Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force Yermande Mixes
this hypnotic beat sounds much better repeated several times without the quranic verses
Marrasmieli Between Land And Sky
bathory meets dissection, nothing too interesting tho embrace was quite good
Marrasmieli Marrasmieli
avg modern black folk, nothing to write home about
Massacre Official Livetape
far too scratchy to properly enjoy and 2nd track is real quiet but is metal
Massacre They Never Die
kam still making a decent effort in his old age
Mayhem Daemon
a culmination of their more straightforward 2000s bm sound, essentially a sequel to chimera without any highlights
Mayhem Esoteric Warfare
a middling meander between chimera and their blogs, neither great nor entirely worthless
Medieval Steel War Cry
some dece 21st century classic metulz
Megadeth Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
peak butt metal with a clincher in last words
Megadeth Last Rites
last rites is their best track but the other 2 not so much
Megaton Sword Blood Hails Steel - Steel Hails Fire
sabbath worship to the max but also better than all sabbath save self titled
Melechesh Emissaries
listens like a parody of their previous works. the magic has all been poured out of the lamp, and the djinn has left them on their own, sloppily composed motionsgoing middle easterns with light riffs and room temperature vox, an unfortunate modern bm influence
Melechesh Enki
melechesh repent of their sins somewhat with highlights in tempest and outsiders
Melechesh Mystics of the Pillar II
a few decent tracks in their new style with a desert long instrum
Mercyful Fate Don't Break the Oath
overemphasis on diamonds vox instead of accenting them while toning down the guitars makes this sophy a lot weaker than it should have been
Metal Church Metal Church
the church solely responsible for increasing sunday service attendance by 666% during the mid 80s
Metallica Some Kind of Monster
actually pretty good, edited version of title is a win
Metallica Master of Puppets
u only come here for battery, title n damage
Metallica No Life 'til Leather
when metallica could actually call themselves metal lickas

some wicked solos on this song selection, songs themselves meh to good

sum pretty dece buttrockicka covers, prob wouldnt pay 6 bucks for it tho
Methadone Skies Enter The Void
pretty decent drony asmr rock
Methadone Skies Retrofuture Caveman
liked it more than i thought i would. typical asmr rock mixed with metallic vibes. infected by friendship is a four star song, enabler is the next best track.
MF DOOM Operation: Doomsday
mf doom makin a boom takin away my gloom so i can zoom
Mgla With Hearts Toward None
typical modern bm until the finale in vii
Michael Jackson Bad
bad is undeniably good
Midnattsol Where Twilight Dwells
lofty but nothing addicting
Midnattsol Nordlys
gud ablum wo any highlights
Midnattsol The Metamorphosis Melody
another good album without any bangers
Ministry The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste
ministry of DANCE METAL
Minor Threat In My Eyes
less intense more regular punk than self titled
Miseration Tragedy Has Spoken
they go for some straight up dm on this one with a few subtle but welcome effects. honestly not bad
Misthyrming Með hamri
trad infused bits are great, proggy n krallice type not so much
Mithotyn In the Sign of the Ravens
good black folk without any highlights
Mithotyn Gathered Around the Oaken Table
not as good as forest, rly just some mediocre mdm with occasional black vox. clearly he got bored and went on to falconer
Mithotyn Nidhogg
pretty much just a shorter version of ravens
Mithotyn Promo '96
a stretched out folk black record demo
Mogwai The Hawk Is Howling
flugcore is cool, chill thought out instrums but nothing i want to keep
Monstrosity In Dark Purity
some new vox confirm this as better than anything cc ever did
Moonlight Haze Lunaris
was hoping with a name like that it'd be more epic or doomy/black. unfortunately mere competent but not excellent symph
Moonsorrow Varjoina kuljemme kuolleiden maassa
nothing too interesting here but decentish modern bm
Moonsorrow Jumalten aika
familiar morrow epicness for the first half hour then mires itself into indistinguishable white noise
Moonsorrow Viides luku - Hävitetty
a blackened sommy with little of their magic
Moonsorrow Voimasta ja kunniasta
first 3 tracks are win, then they just delve off into some generic folk dream
Moonspell Wolfheart
a lot of awkward vox, but good instrumentation even if it doesnt always flow together, trebaruna is a jam
Morbid Angel Formulas Fatal to the Flesh
a lot of tracks sound like reworked osdm versions of cc songs, some garbage prog, random atmospheric bullshit, goes on for way too long, but chambers of dis and covenant of death trimmed down for the trv parts go ahrd
Morbid Angel Kingdoms Disdained
i mean its alright modern dm cant rly complain cant rly rejoice
Morbid Angel Bleed for Devil
too staticky to rly appreciate but m/ nonetheless
Morbid Angel Scream Forth Blasphemies
one of the scratchiest records ever yet what u can hear is still better than the majority of what scrubs call metal
Morbid Angel Thy Kingdom Come
a solid but slightly boring morbidy angelly d
Morbid Angel Laibach Remixes
is decent good dm
Morrigan Anwynn
first half is godawful destroyed by some of the shittiest singing imaginable, but then on teach duinn onwards he suddenly changes tune and sings bathory like. srsly was ready to 2 this but 2nd half is pretty good, highlight in that teach duinn with edits
Mors Principium Est ...And Death Said Live
avg bleh to decentish mdm sounding like a combination of aild n norther
Mortician Chainsaw Dismemberment
decent grindy deaths
Mortification Break the Curse
nothing too grand on here but worth a listen for that early 90s production and deathrash attempt
Mortification Erasing the Goblin
holy shit was not expecting this to be good. razorback is a great deathrash track with a consistent following rivaling any of your favourite thrash acts. steve sounds like hes got a backbone and the lyrics send demons to hell
Mortification Noah Sat Down and Listened to the Mortification Li
not a bad ep containing the highlights of en ev, interview of a bands journey is always interesting
Mortiis The Stargate
tries to be more majestic than it is, a lot of lady vox but no hits
Motley Crue Too Fast for Love
only trv crv, highlights in live wire n show with general bebops thrvout
Motorhead Bastards
starts with a slew of great metallic punky rockers, only to absolutely destroy the mood with the unnecessary and intentionally horrible daddy, then proceeding on a train of average motorhead
Motorhead Overkill
title trv rocks these general motors
Motorhead Ace of Spades
title rulz and live to win is good too
Motorhead Iron Fist
motorhead motorin along but again only title puts the pedal to the metal
Motorhead Another Perfect Day
another motorin rocker
Motorhead Orgasmatron
punky metallic rockers that have a great feel but the near nonsense lyrics ruin any pragmatics
Motorhead Rock 'N' Roll
like it says on the tin metallic punky rock n rolls
Motorhead Sacrifice
mhead incorporate the new groove sound while retaining their classic metally rock highlight in over your shoulder
Motorhead The Golden Years
motorhead rockin AHRD
Motorhead St. Valentine's Day Massacre
a cool collab ep with girlschool, bomber cover is cute and so is emergency
Motorhead Stand by Your Man
wendy's screechy screams combined with mhead's style give title a raving intensity while no class is a spike through the eardrums, meanwhile masterplan mhead'd sounds vastly superior
Mountain Realm Grayshadow Ruins
decent dung synth project but nothing stand out
Mr. Bungle The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny
punky dm with their trademark bungle effects. i would say its a shame they left the trv but with those band, album, and song names it was always the plan
Mulla مَوْلَى
about as basic as it gets save for a few middle easterny riffs
Mushroomhead XIII
peak nude muddle
My Chemical Romance Like Phantoms, Forever
decent punk rockz
My Chemical Romance The Black Parade: The B-Sides
pretty much a collection of some of their best except heaven

viking baby bathorys with only a smidgen of the talent
Naglfar Pariah
a plain and regular motionsgoing meloblack this tho
Napalm Death Harmony Corruption
rather plain dm

a silly album but theres always seven tears
Nas Illmatic
solid beats but nothing rly bammin
Nasum Human 2.0
deathgrind 101, soul included
Neck Deep The Peace And The Panic
pretty good present pop punks with a dash of hardcore
Necrophagia Death Is Fun 2023
unreleased 7" is some legit screamy dm, autopsy demo another screamy thrash mess, other demos as they are
Necrophagia Death Is Fun.......
what can be heard is rompin thrashy aggression but def not yet death metal
Necrophagia Rise from the Crypt
more raw hardcore than anything metal
Necrophagia Black Blood Vomitorium
a decent enough dm offering but nothing essential
Necrophobic Hrimthursum
like hypocrisy they go from a trv deathy mdm to a more poppy parody of themselves
Necrophobic The Call
instead of capitalizing on the great dm band they could have become they decided to throw in silly silly melodies and do melodeaf
Necrophobic Pesta
a mid mdm and a modern dm self cover
Necrophobic Tsar Bomba
another modern aggravatingly mid necrophobic release
Necrophobic Realm of Terror (demo)
a neat little one track demo showing early promise
Neurotech Antagonist
an alright listen, not very metal but kind of fun effects
Nightmare Puppy Furtherance
this is pretty good, fun experimental sillinesses, highlight in tourniquet
Nightwish Wishmaster
has some great tracks like she is my sin and crownless but otherwise wavers and ends up on the simply good side
Nightwish Bless the Child: The Rarities
good little collection of some of nw best, dece, n meh
Nightwish The Crow, The Owl and The Dove
instrum of heart is the best track
Nightwish Elan
elan is alright i guess
Nightwish Endless Forms Most Beautiful
starts horribly boring but then u have elan and hope, title, the sheer win that is alpenglow, and bits of show but tuomas stfu with ur bullshit philosophy no one cares. rest is utter garbage. dont listen to the instrums they show just how empty the instrumentation actually is
Nightwish HUMAN. :II: NATURE.
rly just have noise and then a bunch of below avg-goodish tracks and instrumentals
Nile Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka
nile gettin it goin with a mix of osdm and tolerable techdeth
Nile Annihilation of the Wicked
decent dm from the only egyptian metal gods
Nile Black Seeds of Vengeance
a decent follow up with their niche egypto metal
Nile In Their Darkened Shrines
two successful albums means a bigger budget, and shrines sounds a helluva lot bigger and masterfully produced, but the tracks themselves are about the same quality as debut n sophy
Nile In The Beginning
decent little dm collection from the kephraaaaaaaa
Nile Festivals Of Atonement
gud egeepteen muzixxx
Nirvana Nevermind
one of those rare albums that more or less lives up to its fame, fav tracks teen spirit n lounge
No Doubt Tragic Kingdom
just a girl somewhat annoying earworm, otherwise decent palt rocks with some ska cuz why not, gwen goes ahrd
no metal in this battle No Metal In This Battle - Wie Kraut Und R​ü​ben
another cool postock bum building on all their previous but not as good as debut ep
Nocturna (IT) Daughters of the Night
it's just frozen crown in more sympho style. i like the high pitched echo effect they use now and again, best tracks are new evil and title
Nocturnus The Key
another dm classic weakened by prog n little croak vox
Nokturnal Mortum The Voice of Steel
definitely not their best effort more of a folk rock album with bm elements than anything else certainly doesnt deserve the enforced 2. best song ofc is the country track ukrayina
Nokturnal Mortum Lunar Poetry
a hit n miss album, barely scrapes a 3
Nokturnal Mortum Marble Moon
weakened by largely banal instrumentals but moonlight path is an intense jam
Nordanvind Det Som En Gång Varit
decentish melodic atmoblacks that dont quite reach the win threshold
Norther Mirror of Madness
not as good as their other albums but u do have blackhearted, midnight walker, and the inevitable jam that is unleash hell
Norther N
certainly the most bipolar of their albums. to separate the gold from the dross u have frozen angel, down, black gold, and always & never
Norther No Way Back
solid ep by the north
Novembers Doom Amid Its Hallowed Mirth
decent deathdoom w gothicky attributes
Nuclear Death Bride of Insect
pretty dece if a bit too underproduced deathrash with sum grind
Numenor The Forgotten Legends
decent covers
Obituary Obituary
pretty good deathrash from these old schoolers
Obituary Left to Die
cute death worshipping ep
Obliteration Total Fucking Obliteration
way better than any of their albums omg
Obliteration Goat Skull Crown
honestly their best work
Omegavortex Black Abomination Spawn
flawless production, pretty damn solid and smartly technical unlike every techdeath band ever just doesnt pull me in much
Omnium Gatherum Spirits And August Light
solid but lackluster debut mostly taken down by shitty shitty at the gates vox, highlights in perfumed garden ( ? ?? ?) and wastrel
Omnium Gatherum The Redshift
the album that put them on the map with jukka pelkonen. some real bangers like nail, shadowkey, and shapes n shades, but also bummers like cham skin (but he says snake skin...?), breaking point, and return. lmaaaoooooo that nail live wtf
Omnium Gatherum Stuck Here on Snakes Way
a middling album by a band still finding its way (hence being stuck?), though certainly taking a progressive step ahead with the addition of jukka. nothing too impressive but not a completely uninteresting feat either
Omnium Gatherum Steal the Light
again solid ep with highlights in wastrel, ammo & lost n found, but the vox keep it from being stellar
Omnium Gatherum Slasher
disappointing ep, mid songs and manic cover is just dumb
Oneohtrix Point Never Replica
not bad, title is v good but album let down by the spam that is child soldier
Oskord Weapon of Hope
holy blood lite
Outre-Tombe Repurgation
a lot better than their later albums
Outre-Tombe Abysse Mortifère
i mean they got the released in early 90s sound and album cover down at least. french really doesn't go with death vox though. not bad overall
Overkill Feel the Fire
the happiest thrash ever
Oxygen Destroyer Bestial Manifestations of Malevolence and Death
pretty good dm but weak ass vox a la jeff walker
Ozzy Osbourne The Ultimate Sin
ozzy renews himself while sabbath is buried in a ditch
P.O.D. Satellite
an alright album. set it off is the only real banger
Paladin (USA) Ascension
an attempt to mix power n mdeth but its not that great
Pan-Amerikan Native Front Immortal Ceremonies
typical modern trem prodded bm
Panic! at the Disco Vices & Virtues
decent party rock, i always appreciate how these kinds of bands know when to end an album
Passerby Passerby
penholder and broken wings go ahrd
Pathfinder (USA) Nightfall at Whitehaven Beach
pretty good asmr ambient esp the towers and smile is a decent vox inclusive track
Penny Coffin Τέφρα/Σκελετικό Σκοτάδι
rating just the skeletiko skotathi side, too much doom but the tones are pretty nice, jaws is beast
Pentagram (CL) The Malefice
unnotable osdm
Peste Noire La Sanie des Siècles
for all the hubbub just 90s bm revival
Phantom Elite Wasteland
another good but not amazing symph band. cover is rather uninviting and reminds me of alice in chains bleh. highlight in sirens call
Pillar The Reckoning
this actually rocks more than a little bit. everything is the only track worth repeats tho
Pixies Surfer Rosa
zany punky altocks featuring where is my mind and titties cementing them eternally
Pixies Indie Cindy
a pretty good comeback album. mellowy rock songs incorporating pop tunes as well as their own classic style
Pixies EP1
excellent pixies ep fuck u guys
Pixies EP2
fuck sput another solid pixies ep
Pixies Live
debaser plus some of their lesser but somewhat enjoyable tracks
Pixies EP3
wtf its not that bad you cucks
Plasmatics Metal Priestess
pretty fun with well done extra effects, absolutely nothing like killers you fking poseur
Poison Open Up and Say... Ahh!
trv ahrd rock bb, but nothing worth keeping le sigh
Possessed Shadowcult
mid to great deathrash with the older tracks obv better than the new
Power Quest Face The Raven
a decent but almost cringe pm ep by the classicaly mid pmers
Powerman 5000 Tonight the Stars Revolt
quite possibly the best nude muddle album oat, obliterates krooooorrn
Primalfrost Lost Elegies
yet another barely above avg folk dm album, gotta hurt when ur best work was as a teenager
Primalfrost Prosperous Visions
pretty avg folk after such a promising ep, needs more accordion and epicness
Primitive Graven Image Traversing the Awesome Night
competent modern bm but nothing special about it
Primordial Serpent Ancient Myths And Legends
black metal lite but fimbulwinter rulz
Protector Excessive Outburst of Depravity
modestly blackened mid thrash. dirtygoyim i am a thrash god and this isnt worth much at all
Putrescent Seepage Dead And Demented
pretty sweet bdm, gnarly squeals, love the fuckin cheap ass drums
Pyotr Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker, Op. 71
you know at least 5 movements off by heart, but only march iia is worth hearing with any regularity
Pyotr Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
a lot of pomp but next to no substance
Queen Queen
when queen was a trv rock band
Quest Master Lost Songs of Distant Realms: Volume Two
not as good as volume i
Quo Vadis Obitus
pretty decent release too bad there isnt a bit more
Quo Vadis Demo Premaster
some pretty good tracks ruined by sans abris
Ragnarok Psychopathology
dom n sub is a tribute to immortal followed by competent but forgetful modern bms
Ragnarok Non Debellicata
eh another standard modern ragnarok
Ragnarok (UK) Voluspa
going by 2011 remaster, voluspa is a more straight forward metal demo with black and folk elements
Ragnarok (UK) Domgeorn
far more folk than metal, and the metal/redone tracks are very mild compared to their previous
Rammstein Mutter
sonne und ich will are always fun but the rest is decent rockies that u shouldnt ever rly want to hear again unless doing a rammstein discog
Rammstein Zeit
pretty on par for the ramm, generally good dust rock tunes thrvout, autotune on lugen made me lol, but zick zack is the real winner with that chorus
Rammstein Rosenrot
usual general rammparty without any highlights
Rammstein Untitled
better than their other later albums but not quite in the 3.5 range
Rammstein Herzeleid
what a debut, highlights in wollt ihr das bett n du riechst
Rammstein Reise, Reise
rammstein is prob the most balanced rock band ever, highlights in title und mein teil
Rammstein Liebe Ist Für Alle Da
surely the most consistently med band ever, generally good time with no highlights
Ramones Ramones
blitzkrieg bops
Ratt Out of the Cellar
a fun album but no trv bangers. also what a stupid name, what schmuck ever got a girl going by saying 'lets play some ratt'?
Ravencult Force Of Profanation
kind of won me over in the end but mostly just passing blackened thrash
Red (USA) Innocence and Instinct
professional production but at the cost of that newband energy. death of me is a rocker but the slow tracks have too many hymnal overtones
Red (USA) Breathe Into Me EP
decent acoustic and slightly shortened reg version of the best track on the bum
Red (USA) Not Alone (Performance Tracks)
damn actually a pretty good piece without the vox
Regurgitation Tales of Necrophilia
gets rly close to corpse worship but is also better than any corpse so
ReVamp ReVamp
floor sounds a lot like simone here, good symphs but somehow nothing captivating
Rexoria The World Unknown
damn their 2nd ep better than anything on their albums
Rexoria Moments of Insanity
a rather mid ep by an equally mid band with potential
Rexoria Imperial Dawn
hawt power pop
Rhapsody of Fire Power of the Dragonflame
it make me hap. i fap
Rhapsody of Fire Symphony of Enchanted Lands II
ignoring the lame ass theatrics this is pretty good
Rhapsody of Fire The Eighth Mountain
generally good bum, level of theatrics is appropriate, highlight in abyss
Rhapsody of Fire Symphony of Enchanted Lands
emerald and wisdom are amazing but then it dips for no good reason, they try to be bach, and otherwise inane instrums and bleh music
Rhapsody of Fire Dawn of Victory
their third album is pure generic rhapsody before attaining fire
Rhapsody of Fire Dark Wings of Steel
bruh its rhapsody. highlights in tragic flames n tears
Richard Wagner Lohengrin
unless you care about the plot you're only here for the prelude to act iii and treulich gefuhrt
Rings of Saturn Lugal Ki En
didnt think techy glitchcore would work but this was decently interesting and fun, dips in the middle though
Rippikoulu Musta Seremonia
confession school make some decent death doom, but wish it had a bit more power to it
Rippikoulu Mutaation Aiheuttama Sisainen Mataneminen
some decently average death doom
Rippikoulu Ulvaja
pretty mid-good death doom
Rise Against Siren Song of the Counter Culture
fun poppunks with some silly hc yelping
Robert Schumann Album for the Young, Op. 68
youre here for no. 10, rest is meh
Rose Avalon Northern Strengths
decent symph metul with highlights in my sad martirdom (sic) and the bagpipes on northern star
Rotting Christ A Dead Poem
some easy listening meloblocks highlight in storms
Roy Hargrove Earfood
freewheelin jazzins with heavy key assaults
Running Wild Black Hand Inn
largely dece ahrd rock but occasionally sum trv metal like privateer
Ryuichi Sakamoto BTTB
you come here for opus and aqua, rest is either awkwardly lethargic or lofty but without impact
Sabaton Carolus Rex
was better in swedish but still a handful of good jams
Sabaton Heroes
bros whenever u feel down just plug in sabaton and realize u could be epic instead
Sabaton Primo Victoria
sabby just getting into their niche with highlights in counterstrike n stalingrad
Sabaton The Art of War
much more middling album with a highlight in ghost division
Sabaton Metalizer
the album that was supposed to be their debut (dem record company shenanigans) highlights are 7734 and thunderstorm
Sabaton Attero Dominatus
official sabby sophomore pretty avg for them but highlights in title and nuclear attk. bonus cover of fur immers also pretty good n l?nga is nice if u want to hear some swedish
Sabaton Fist For Fight
combination of their first demo and some songs off their first few albums. as such not rly much better or worse, but does feature hellrider, thunderstorm, and easily their best track of their early years (though unreleased until 2010) in birds of war
Sabaton Heroes Of The Great War
first soldier is a new mid track, bunch of b sides from their latest albums + unkillable soldier
Sacramentum The Coming of Chaos
quite a step down from debut, has all the ingredients but theyre not proportionate nor mixed very well
Sacramentum Finis Malorum
sum rather plain tho more trv somberlains
Sacramentum Thy Black Destiny
another album that fails to seek the fortune of their debut, all the elements but no cohesion
Sacred Warrior Master's Command
mid butt metal for jaysus with a random but good mdeth track in the flood
Sacrilegium Jesienne Szepty
couple of chill enough kind of cool tracks
Sadistik Exekution We Are Death... Fukk You !
all speed and a bit of atmosphere from the instrums, but little art or rock n roll
Sadus A Vision of Misery
decent but nothing amazing techy thrash
Sadus Swallowed in Black
they realized they abandoned their roots and became a mid thrash band so they added some prog and it just made them even more mid
Samael Era One
a decent enough industrial album with a much stronger forefront than derriere
Samhain (DK) The Courier
decent enough but not very riffy dm
Sangdragon Requiem for Apocalypse
blackened symphonic thrash, its not amazing by any means and again steals the heart of later dimmu but has many of its own unique moments its just not especially great. highlight in the first 2 track combo
Sangdragon White Dragon
an eluveitie type near instrumental medieval folk album, a lot better than the black side anyway
Sangdragon Curse of Desert
an alright melobleath track
Satanic Warmaster Fimbulwinter
largely plain pizza black with some vargs at the end for good measure
Satyricon Megiddo - Mother North in the Dawn
dawn is dumb but the rest is pretty good
Satyricon All Evil
rumbly medieval times
Savatage Edge of Thorns
a variety of different song styles with a highlight in title
Savatage Gutter Ballet
decent fresh sounding classic style metulz
Saxon Saxon
excellent bridge album between ahrd rock and metal
Saxon Wheels of Steel
too rocky, needs moar metul
Saxon Thunderbolt
trv rockers never forget how to rock, n saxon have not
Saxon Denim and Leather
starts with glorious new wave metal but soon devolves into pure if appreciable butt rock, title still rulz tho
Saxon Power and the Glory
soft easy listening new wave mrocks
Scourged Flesh Released From Damnation
some decent deathrashin goin on, similar to mortification debut
Sear Bliss The Arcane Odyssey
not much to it, doomy/proggy mdeth with random folk effects now and then, highlight in venomous grace
Sear Bliss Glory and Perdition
ends up sounding too much like a saggyballs album with trite trumpet hails, latter half gets better but the enthusiasm is already dead by then, some cool key effects and arrangements, sections on a couple tracks sound like gerudo fortress and shadow temple
Sepultura Beneath the Remains
a rather boring followup compared to there debut n soph
Seth L'Excellence
a grand declaration of war type bm with plenty of atmoprog mixed in and decent synth effects
Seth Les Blessures De l'Ame
lightly synthed more artsy bm without any knockouts
Sex Pistols Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols
Sex Pistols Spunk
raw PUNK
Sgaile Traverse the Bealach
melodeth sleep token
Shakira ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?
shakira got pipes
Shania Twain Come On Over
never thought id give a pop album more than a 2.5 but hey this album is legit solid its not 2-3 singles and a lot of fluff it just keeps going for an hour
Shining (SWE) Lots of Girls Gonna Get Hurt
a pretty good cover ep tbh
Sinister Diabolical Summoning
plain osdm, vox are mixed too high n the riffs too low
Sinister Hate
another bleh mid af album
Siouxsie and the Banshees Join Hands
early cool riffed alt rocks
Sirenia At Sixes And Sevens
tries but doesnt quite reach its potential, too simple compositions and clearly no time for refinement, but on the wane is excellent and the violin and flute on manica are mwah
Sirenia The Seventh Life Path
elixir is amazing, sons of the north could have been so if they hadnt filled half of it with filler and used that cool intro chord progression as a main riff, serpent p good overall. concealed disdain dumb title but still pretty good, silv eye good with editing. tragedienne a close but not quite there dramatic theatre piece that does however have quite the conclusion with that one impressive and piercing note by the lovely ailyn, gets me every time
Sirenia 1977
pretty on par for siren, not particularly engaging
Skalmold Vögguvísur Yggdrasils
one of those low effort 'by the spirit' kind of folk metal albums thats not very good but has its moments. also lmao @ covering alestorm
Skalmold born loka
one of the weirdest folk bands. some basic folk strums + shouty clean vox, but also orchestra/chorus and bm arragenments here n there. nothing too great but greipnir and hel are fun
Skalmold Sorgir
skalmold once again the most mid folk band in history
Skalmold Ýdalir
another minimal folk metal album, typical skalmold
Skillet iTunes Session
pretty good live renditions with some extra effects of some of their better (and a couple terrible) tracks. most noticeable is the added strings in comatose giving it a bit more weight
Skillet Alien Youth
some pretty competent rock without anything super great
Skyfire Mind Revolution
what a decline eliminating all black metal aspects in favour of generic pop mdm, still excellent use of keys however with a highlight in colliding in mind
Skyfire Liberation in Death
decent skyfire, good keys as usual, nothing spectacular
Skyfire Spectral
another modest success by the fire in the sky, gets a little dt there, some spirit blk dimens here, best track is prob conjuring
Skyfire Fractal EP
certainly their worst release up to this point, get a little techy n proggy n bore
Skyforger Latviešu strēlnieki
first half is rather atrocious until the only bangin track in death island, rest is mid goods with some of the worst talentless vox
Slade Slayed?
damn we rockin ahrd in '72
Slania The Spark
heavier on the instrumentation than debut, but her singing also isnt as good. more than a little prog and generic riffs ruin it somewhat, but nameless song is a star and subj inhibitions is pretty good despite its faults
Slipknot (CT) Slipknot
will the trv slipknot please stand up?
Slytherin A Tale We'll Tell Of What Hath Been​.​.​.
summoning but harry potter...ok
Snot Get Some
nice doggy bupbup ;D
Snot Strait Up
the most wild and varied nude muddle album to ever exist
Sodom Ausgebombt (Ep)
sum punky sodoms n an intense live
Sodom M-16
among the weirdkong is a banger followed by a string of well executed cliches
Sodom 'Til Death Do Us Unite
a thrash album to get you through in a pinch but nothing excellent
Sodom A Handful of Bullets
a decent call to genesis xix with an eh venom cover
Solefald The Linear Scaffold
taking every general bm element and giving it crack. in this case more is less
Sonata Arctica Takatalvi
pretty good compilation of a handful of songs n covers
Sonata Arctica The Collection
not quite what it says on the tin but some hits yeah
Sonata Arctica Orientation
some trvly b side b sides
Sonic Poison Eruption
not bad for grind
Sonus Mortis War Prophecy
mid melodeath/doom with the same amateur effects since valediction. at least it has a real cover and not an awful cartoon
Sonus Mortis Propaganda Dream Sequence
decent doomy meloldeaf, a bit of sommy but not rly, mostly sounds like his previous band valediction, highlight in cyber construct
Sorgelig Sørgelig
a short reprise of modernized os mayhem x behemoth x generic bm, nothing wrong with it, nothing special
Soundtrack (Film) The Great Gatsby (Music from Baz Luhrmann's Film)
a suitable modern gatsbian sound track
Soundtrack (Film) The Great Gatsby: Music from Baz Luhrmann Deluxe
koala crazy love vers is better, she likes BIG parties ;), other little scene clips, no church goes ahrd, orches young n beautiful is fine, gatsby believed is a nice score piece
Soundtrack (Video Game) Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
jesus fuck cant even escape after checking that track list. anyway like previous game most tracks go with the game only, but this time its much better produced and grand, tho not rly superior in quality despite. my picks off this epic ost are p peach kidnapped again, bowser king of koopas, here comes king koopa, glitzville is a big win, rawk hawk rock is pure win as well (love the entire glitzville area/chapter), macho grubba, fight gainst mario no dooplis, excess express at day, super koopa bros world 3, storm the x naut fortress is pure win, and big bowser koopa krush is pure win
Spellforest As the Rainfall...
lofi black symph. its a decent attempt anyway
Stephane Hirondelle Electro City
as the title suggests fun little electro ditties, wish he'd cut some out and make the remainder longer
Stevie Wonder Songs in the Key of Life
stevie w the wonder indeed, smooth but funky n lively tracks, some mj vibes
Stormbringer Stormbringer
sum plain heavies with the pure win that is tales of the white wolf
Stormkeep Tales of Othertime
eh everything from the cover on is a little boy's imitation of emperor with nodtveidt on vocals
Stormlord Hesperia
continues their trend of devolving streamlined symph without any highlights
Stormlord Mare Nostrum
they sacrifice their power and any raw trvness in this streamlined symphy theatre, with an abundance of banal extra effects that add nothing and just waste time, like pointless weak operatic vox. guitar tone is bleak, still wind scream is a standout amongst a storm of overly produced broadways
Stormlord Under the Sign of the Sword
some cute raw folk blacks
Stormlord Black Knight
raw amateur mid tempo dm, a few bros gettin together
Stormwarrior Northern Rage
a dichotomic album that cant decide whether it wants to be good or not. has bangers like heroic deathe, thy laste fyre, foreign shores, and lindisfarne, but then also throws out a ton of mid shit
Stortregn Evocation of Light
rather plain modern meloblack
Stratovarius Survive
actually p good but the only track i want to hear again is glory days
Stream Of Passion The Flame Within
nothing too great but the soar on street spirit cover is nice
Street Pharmacy Divorce
they dropped the reggae for some straight up pop punk and its not even bad, highlight in stone bricks
Streetheart Meanwhile Back In Paris
smooth synthy slightly glammy late 70s rock, highlight in the closer just for you
Stribling Way supermassive
the lofi alt rocks are great. everything else is filler and his voice is rather weak overall
String Player Gamer Rebirth
not every adaptation is a hit, some things are really random. still the general quality is there, with the instrum to jump up, lon lon ranch, magnet man, and chun li's theme my favourites
String Player Gamer Undertale: Strings of Determination Vol. 4
lesser tracks until nightmare and finale
String Player Gamer VGM Singles 2015
only the song of healing stands out from a plethora of decents
Stuporous Asylum's Lament
an amalgamation of classic and modern bm styles, perhaps too divisively so as it all ultimately rings hollow
Styx Man of Miracles
great energy, the beatles with balls. highlight in southern woman
Suffocation …Of the Dark Light
listenable modern death anyway
Suffocation Suffocation
buncha mid-goods with the rerec of repulsion naturally superior
Suffocation Reincremated
suffy with bad prod
Suicidal Tendencies Join the Army
refined crossover, tho rly all it does is make the thrash easy listening
SuidAkrA Caledonia
amateur mdm with sum bm n fm vibes
Summoning Stronghold
summy do it better than most of their atmoblack contemps but at the same time its too synthy and asmr, more heavy pls
Summoning Lugburz
rly shoddy production makes the album generally weak despite good synths n riffs n shrieks
Summoning Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame
some great tracks like hollow halls n foes but doesnt hold up the momentum
Sunwheel Industry of Death
a lesser modern behemoth with amateur keys
Super Piano 64 Zelda and Sleep: Instrumentals from Ocarina ofTime
songs could have been adapted a lot better but lullaby is good, lon lon is great n my eternafav fairy fountain is near perfect
t.A.T.u. 200 km/H In The Wrong Lane
pretty excellent lectrypops by the famous roosigirls
Tarja Turunen In The Raw
not bad, a less silly nw but also missing the overall attempt at grandiosity (that nw usually fails but at least attempts), best moments on stranger
Taylor Davis Melodies of Hyrule
a lot of these are actually quite wanting. not sure of its the elec violin itself or just how she recomposed them with it in mind. regardless gerudo valley is a gem and great fairy fountain is heaven
Telperia Light of Telperia
a not bad debut featuring some amateur folk power bops with title the most polished
Tenebrarum Horror
wild dm trying to break through its poor production
Tenebrarum The Distortionated Guts of the Idolatry
went from no production overblown can only rly hear the vox properly
Tenebrarum The Equinox
new tracks are mid modern dms, bathory cover is ok
Testament The Formation of Damnation
testament is a testament to metallica if they never became buttrockicka
Testament The New Order
still trver than metallica but the worship is already stale. nothing that trvly testafies
Testament Practice What You Preach
metallica if they hadnt gone full butt
Testament Brotherhood of the Snake
starts as quite promising thrash but runs its course, still get too metallicky at times
Testament Titans of Creation
unusually story driven thrash, they sound quite healthy in their middle age and llica sounds are minimal, chuck in particular is ferocious
Thanatos Speed Kills
a weird raw thrash/death/black demo with experimental effects and acoustic interludes between each song
Thanatos Realm of Ecstasy
very polished for early 90s dm, and that seems to have been where the greatest efforts were exerted, as while this is sure and trv dm its not especially exciting, and they would go on to ghost the metal world for 8 years. in any case the band was eventually reformed to create the masterpiece that is angelic encounters so it all worked out in the end
Thanatos Undead. Unholy. Divine.
dont rly know how this happened doesnt sound like same band a very mid mashup of blackened thrash/dm
Thanatos Justified Genocide
some sorta mishmash of thrash death n prog they dont rly know what they wanna do technically proficient but incoherent a total for the birds album
The All-American Rejects Move Along
nothing is that great but everything is pretty listenable so i'll pos
The Birthday Massacre Imagica (Demo 2)
easily their best release, rougher versions of the early songs that brought them attention
The Exploited Punks Not Dead
gud hc punks but the vox are often too weak
The Exploited On Stage
wild early 80s hc show
The Flaming Lips Imagene Peise: Atlas Eets Christmas
chill jazzy lofi decently relaxed renditions its pretty good
The Griefbearer The Servant
this guy releases too many albums to ever create something trvly worthy, nevertheless this is decent lightly toned black/symph/folk with a highlight in sacrifice
The Killers Hot Fuss
ya got jenny, brightside, somebody, n everything alongside a slew of meh pop punk
The Notorious B.I.G. Greatest Hits
biggie's best indeed, big poppa is the lennyface
The Notorious B.I.G. Duets: The Final Chapter
sum of biggie's best even if he didnt have much to do on it
The Notorious B.I.G. Rap Phenomenon
smooth mix with some unreleased tracks
The Receiving End of Sirens Between the Heart and the Synapse
pretty sweet emo/punk/progish/rock album, too long tho
The Tragically Hip Up To Here
the hip start out well, decent good joikers with lovely vibratto vox
The Tragically Hip Day For Night
pretty good tth album
The Tragically Hip World Container
a general good time tbh
The Vandals Oi to the World
this is a punk christmas album alright, yikes lyrics, sillinesses, sugar plum cover and overture are pretty sweet
Therion Leviathan II
well produced and done operatic metal but doesnt really perform that entrancingly, nevertheless highlight in the pop hooks of cavern cold as ice
Therion Of Darkness...
a very mid dm debut foretelling their change in style
Thor's Hammer Fidelity Shall Triumph
mid tempo easy listening deathy bm
Thulcandra Fallen Angel's Dominion
dissection fanboys make a middling bm album, best track ofc is the cover of somberlain
Thurnin Útiseta
wouldve preferred more variety, more use of flute/folk chorus/strings and at least a few more upbeat tunes. still you can chill to it and is guaranteed to get you out of a cortisol fog, highlights in title and saera
Thurnin Menhir
first half has a good variety with lovely acoustic melodies and trimmings but it peters out in the second half. fuck off gyro
Thyrfing Hels Vite
they go more for a moonsorrow/modern polished bm sound this time. sounds better than their last anyway. sad to say classic thyrfing is all gone tho, highlight in en sista litania
Thyrfing Döp dem i eld
decent modern thyrfing. rawr a dragon!
Tiamat Sumerian Cry
real mid dm that has but not nearly enough moments
Tigertailz Beserk
pure party rock highlights in sick sex n love bomb baby
Timeghoul 1992-1994 Discography
tumultuous good, panaramic bad in many places
Timeless Miracle Sir Martin the Dragonslayer
happy go lucky track about a horrible evil tragedy gud stuff
TNT Tell No Tales
mostly softcore hair but everyones a star, northern lights, and title are wins
Trans-Siberian Orchestra Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)
winter palace is the best track, tso version of winter is ok, rest unnotable coustic light sungs
Trench Hell Alcoholic Disaster
alcoholic masterpiece
Tribulation The Children of the Night
light melodied bm without anything that special
Tribulation The Formulas of Death
one of those experimental bm albums without anything especially pungent
Tristania Tristania
sum pretty good symphs
Trixter Trixter
a fun hair metal album with highlights in heart of steel and one in a million
Trvth Trvth Be Told
decent instrums/blackgaze, would be good or great with more to it (or less in length)
Tryglav Night of Whispering Souls
any band that follows at the gates' brand of garbage mdm is sure to faulter, fortunately the tryglav blacken everything somewhat so its not intolerable and even has a highlight in title
Turbo Dorosłe dzieci
decently fun folky singalong mrock, highlights in toczy sie and mowili kiedys
Twilight Force At the Heart of Wintervale
their weakest effort by far, getting bored and running out of ideas. band track isnt nearly as explosive as one would hope, everything else just kind of barely scrapes epicity. not nearly as complex or overwhelming as their other albums, taking a slower, more fillery route. crystal bearer is the worst for that. still generally fun, both knight tracks are easily the best/most traditional twilight force
Twilight Force The Sapphire Dragon of Arcane Might Is Back Again
track 1 is a beautiful medieval folk version of sapphire dragon, track 2 is just what it says an orchestral version of the epic on their only mid album
Tygers Of Pan Tang Spellbound
starts rly cool but ends up midgood avg
Tyranny of Steel Winged Assassins
absolutely horrid vox prod but not bad overall
Tyrant (USA) Too Late To Pray
decent mrocks with nothing super engaging save eve of destruction. no goyim u dumb bitch its bc its not that fucking great
Ulver Nattens Madrigal
basic bitch bm with some extra diddlies whoa. vi n vii are pretty tho. also le volf
Undeath It's Time...To Rise From the Grave
first half is largely generic dm but picks up in the second half
Unleash The Archers Explorers
northwest passage is great when it gets going. heartless brings it down
Unleashed And the Laughter Has Died...
a coupla gud dms
Unleashed The Hunt for White Christ (EP & Rarities)
some good modern tracks, killer lives, and ancient demos
Unleashed No Sign of Life EP
mid modern dm trax plus an okay death cover and nice lives
Unleashed The Utter Dark
indeed dark but not very exciting dms
Upon Stone Dead Mother Moon
another dece band ruined by mediocre vox this is why atg is the worst
Vaakevandring Demo 98/99
raw simple bm singalongs
Vaakevandring Vaakevandring
eternal peace stars on an otherwise middling ep
Vader Reign Forever World
decent deathrash album/ep
Vader Solitude in Madness
one final half hour output of actually decent dm, better than their last 2 for sure
Vader The Art Of War
Vader Blood
solidish deathrash ep with more than a few fun areas by the one n only ruth vader ginsberg
Vader The Upcoming Chaos
fun but short ep, carnal is a pure dm jam let down by the mids to follow
Valdrin Throne of the Lunar Soul
another one of those pseudo-trv modern bms that does the bare minimum to get the technically bm sound while reducing it into an easy listening mishmash with random effects. even the art draws you in with promised epicity only to view a sullen half assed warrior on a background of reduced baroque uhhh this sounds nothing like moonlight sorcery wtf MOONWIN SORCERWIN OWNS YOUR SKANKY LITTLE BUM PIKA
Van Halen 5150
van hales put out a respectable rock album starring the ubiquitous dreams
Van Halen Van Halen
van ROCKIN' GIRL you rly got me goin, you got me so i dunno what im doin NOW
Van Halen Balance
van halens most mature album with tight songwriting and a highlight in cant stop lovin you
Vanessa-Mae The Violin Player
bach is oddly arranged but still mostly good, proceeds pretty good vio pieces until half wayish through where it gets slow and then weird ending in a horrible reggae classical fusion
Vatican Shadow Death Is Unity With God
pretty cool percussion based ambients but naturally 2.5 hrs is an investment
Vaultwraith Death Is Proof of Satan's Power
kind of a joke band but still hawt riffs in some areas, highlight in devilcraft legit track 100%
Vektor Terminal Redux
pure fap compared to isolation n esp black future, the few clean vox sections are afwul
Vemod (NO) Venter pa Stormene
some p good modern bms, a burzum, and a mid atmoinstrum
Vemod (NO) Vinterilden
a decent mix of wintry atmosphere and tremz
Vemod (NO) Kringom fjell og skog
would be considerably better if u could hear it properly
Venom At War with Satan
Venom Calm Before the Storm
the last early cronos venom featuring metal punk, under a spell, fire, gypsy, and muscle ( ? ?? ?)
Venom Fallen Angels
rather sparse for trv bangers on this modern venom but hammerhead, pedal to the metal and esp hail satanas rulz
Venom Hell
la rage's debut definitely took its toll as the riffs are unusually lackluster. still straight to hell, the power and the glory, esp fall from grace, title, and evil perfection make it worth listening to, but then its 7 tracks straight of just completely uninspired venom
Venom Tear Your Soul Apart
a lesser recording of the wannabe dolan version of teachers pet, crappier versions of 2 cronos era classics, some rightful outtakes from prime evil, and a crappy priest cover thats more so crap because its priest than because its dolan
Venom Venom '96
a rough reunion ep, the rerecs sound like poorly conceived venom covers instead of the original lineup, and evil one is just a sample of their soon to be released worst cronos album
Venom Inc. Avé
a watered down venomish album featuring crystal mrock/thrash that, like the cronosless albums of the main band, is simply not venom, though thankfully it leans much more towards the prime evil era than the absolute trash that were temples of ice and the wastelands. highlights in forged in hell and metal we bleed
Vikki Jackman, Andrew Chalk and Jean-Noel Rebilly A Paper Doll's Whisper of Spring
quite pleasant asmr i was legitimately relaxed and sleepy
Vince Guaraldi Trio A Charlie Brown Christmas
relaxing fireside jazzy renditions + original score with a random but adequate fur elise recording and THAT GODDAMN AWFUL LINUS AND LUCY THEME
Vintersorg Till Fjälls
not a bad folk debut, singing needs improvement but very vikingy, instrums just kind of go along
Visions Of Atlantis Wanderers
first half esp release and heroes is relaxed happy metal but the effect dwindles as the songs become plainer
Visions Of Atlantis Cast Away
went from raw heartfelts on debut to generally avrg symph. male vox are even worse but pharaoh and lemuria stand out
Visions Of Atlantis Trinity
nice lite symphs with dual mf vox. back of beyond is prettier than the rest
Visions Of Atlantis Pirates
a better voa album with more highs than lows and there she blows, its not entirely pirate metally as the title would suggest and ought to have been culled by 3-4 tracks but edited versions of title, angel, and in my world make good additions
Visions Of Atlantis Old Routes - New Waters
originals are def much better than these new line up rerecs, tho lovebearing storm still goes p ahrd
Volbeat Servant of the Mind
another pretty solid album, ekur, my girl, devil rage n heaven get groovin. the my girl haters are virgins
Volbeat Rewind, Replay, Rebound
best album since debut, actually generally solid with fun tracks in pelvis, rewind, esp die to live, and sorry sack of bones
Volbeat Fallen
title is decent, warrior would be good if it didnt sound so silly live, rebel angel is good
Volcandra Into the Azure
an enhanced, but still very atg, atg
W.A.S.P. The Last Command
not nearly as good as debut but wild child and blind in texas are win
Warlock Triumph and Agony
tracks 1-3 are pure win and rule ass but we meander into the plain stay afterwards
Warmen Unknown Soldier
bodom but the only good parts are the keys. highlight in evil warmen
Warmen Here for None
in a parallel universe where alexi goes off on his 8 years per album project bodomsun and petri becomes the voice of cob
Watain Opus Diaboli
decent show
Watain Rabid Death's Curse
limb crucifiks is good but rest is dissection tribute/bm tropemasterfest/random 'bm-sounding' shit
Wedrujacy Wiatr Tam, Gdzie Miesiac Oplakuje Swit
first half is typical slow krallice, picks up with wedrowiec
Wedrujacy Wiatr Zorzysta Staje Ocma
more of that synthy drone bm. not too amazing but is decent overall with some folky moments. cool album cover
Whispered Metsutan - Songs of the Void
after a couple of meagre efforts whispered finally came out with a decent album, highlight in strike
Whispered Wrath of Heaven
good enough to get a positive rating but nothing much stands out
Wilderun Sleep at the Edge of the Earth
amorphis + opeth, thankfully leaning towards the 'morphis side
Winter's Edge The Deceivers
unawakening tale is fucking beautiful, hardly what i expected from an album with cartoon cover art. the rest however is exactly what i'd expect, and it's mid as can be, if that. unawakening tale though, holy fuck edit: foresee is pretty good too
Winterhorde Nebula
a modern bm album with all the associated pomp and circumstance but no substance
Wintersun The Forest Seasons
lotr length tracks that try too hard to be epic, succeeding somewhat but the epicness is put way far ahead of the music it is supposed to elevate and so you end up with a kind of movie score (in which the visuals are the primary media) made with blastbeats and rawr vox
Within Temptation Enter
raw n scratchy with a very erotic lennyface cover, tempts debut is an honest but generally unclimatic effort, tho candles is special
Within Temptation Restless
title track pretty damn good, pearls not so much
Within Temptation The Howling
mid poppy symphs with a highlight in jillian
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550
not the zart's most stimulating symphony, but movement i is pleasantly familiar
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "Jupiter" Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551
jupiter is relentlessly praised as one of the most famous of mozart's symphonies, but the reality is his very late works are haphazard without reason and minimally executed, the fact that they were his very last works being the only reason for their fame. likewise only movement iv of jupiter is worth any attention, and even then he had composed far, far greater works before his untimely death
Wolfheart Winterborn
basic modern heavily nomnium wannabe mdm
Wolfnacht Heidentum
decent plain bm with some random industrial bits
Wolves in the Throne Room Black Cascade
for a band that prides themselves on bm their own way this is tragically generic
Won't Bother The Figure - EP
sounds like an epic boss battle
Won't Bother Galloping Data Waltz
what vg is this from?
WOW WOW Hits 2008
just like it says on the jewel case this is indeed a compilation of christian hits, with highlights in undo, walking her home, esp give it all away, made to love, me n jebus, esp forgiven, esp esp reds breathe into me (which sounds much better in this "screamless" edit ironically enough, smoother, the extra echo effect was unnecessary), esp the anthem stand in the rain (masterful chug drop holy shit), and esp work (masterful alt rock track betrayed by the general meh of the full album [thats what makes it a hit after all])
X-Mas Project Bangin' Round The X-Mas Tree
pure christmassy win
Xandria Theater of Dimensions
another album of mild gems and pure cringe, heart is home to call of destiny are the main bangers, indeed sounding very epica like. dark night is decent, a whole bunch of filler, and then equal parts win and horrible cringe on title track
Xandria Fire & Ashes
mid af albums mean a mid af ep
Xandria Neverworld's End
another mid af album with the only real kicker in euphoria
Xandria India
decent record with mild bangers
Xandria Salome - the Seventh Veil
decent symph bops with life, sisters, parts of dogs, n on my way standing out
Xandria Sacrificium
such a weird mix of good and cringe unlike any album ive ever heard...nevertheless title to stardust are pretty solid, betrayers okay with editing, until the end is pure gold and only near perfect track, red relish is cringy af, temple is the weirdest mix of the aforementioned cringe with generally good sections, others completely forgettable
xSPONGEXCOREx How Tough Are Yah?
holy shit best mccore band ever
xSPONGEXCOREx Bikini Bottom Beatdown
i swear to god the best mccore band ever
Yellowcard Underdog
a bigger sound with the production on point but no track is quite the clincher
Yellowcard One for the Kids
solid punk pops w nice vio now n then but nothing stationary
Yellowcard Childhood Eyes
its alright but no keepers
Yellowcard When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes
solid album with a lot of almosts
Yellowcard Still Standing
not a bad ep, gets a little too whiny, highlight in millenium changed
Yes Time and a Word
prock crafted with ba level artistry highlight in title chorus
Ygg Ygg
starts amazing gazy mellowblack but becomes an exhausting journey esp with the puregaze at the end
Yiruma First Love
river is my heart but the rest do leave something to be desired
Yngwie Malmsteen Trilogy
operatic bon jovi be like until title
Yngwie Malmsteen Rising Force
mostly instrumental, good riffs n classical imitation but nothing rly unique or standout. tries to be a symphony too much
Yngwie Malmsteen Marching Out
we get more power metally with a highlight in i'll see the light, but still verging on merely good quality
Yo-Yo Ma and Others The Goat Rodeo Sessions
started great with yo mama's g strings flying everywhere and the bluegrass elements fitting in but over time begins to stagnate and ends up at a mild plateau
Your Favorite Martian YFM 2011
theyre silly, theyre dumb, and that combined with genuine production makes them better than the majority of the pop/rap etc that they parody. fight to win goes particularly ahrd. YOU AINT SEEN MAH BALLZ
great punktal ep, title track is an ahrd highlight
Yuka Tsujiyoko Paper Mario GMS (Disc 1 and 2)
a lot of tracks rly only go with the actual game, but ones i like on their own include ghost gulping, hang in there peach, climbing the castle (bomb track), sad sun, bowsers rage (bomb), wish of the princess, huffin n puffin (bomb), king of the koopas (bombest track), k64 train ride, petunia under attack, princess in distress, bill blaster go faster, and shy guy riot
Zero Degree Surreal world
flames worship to the maxxxxx
Zero Degree Black Hole Illumination
flames worship to the MAX pt 2
Zona Morta Nômades
some powery thrash with death vox, not too amazing despite being competently played

2.5 average
1914 Eschatology of War
some average black doom with too many interludes. glad they changed it afterwards
2H Company Психохирурги
hearing slavs rap is alway funny, pretty tight
2Pac All Eyez on Me
inevitably a lot of filler on a 2 hour album, but generally the beats/effects are good, and enough jewels exist among the rubble to keep it going. highlights are the powerful life goes on followed by only god can judge me, with special mentions in rather be ya nigga and thug passion
2Pac R U Still Down? (Remember Me)
real bangers in wonder if heaven got a ghetto and the funky fake ass bitches. do for love is also damn smooth
3776 序曲 (Jokyoku)
3776 歳時記・第二巻 (Saijiki Dai-Ni-Kan)
an annoying and then a not so annoying track
50 Cent Power of the Dollar
decentish beats with the only standout in title

avg azz raps wo highlights
50 Cent Still Will (Essential 5 EP)
sum club nothings, some eternally famous beats, n just a lil bit o sthg else
50 Cent 21 Questions
soldier is great, title is ehh
A Flock of Seagulls Ascension
these, ah, "orchestrations" def do not help either the hits nor the flops
A Flock of Seagulls The Story of a Young Heart
now this one doesnt even have a hit to justify its existence. meanders between mid and kind of good with the best track by far in remember david. a lot of great instrumentation is ruined by random lyrical topics and a lack of inspiration
A Flock of Seagulls The Light At The End Of The World
first 4 tracks are a good little new wave gauntlet, with burning up and rainfall exemplifying their hot/cold duo into afos' top 10 tracks, but from then on it becomes plainer and plainer until a couple of random karate kid instrumentals at the end
A Flock of Seagulls String Theory
say you love me is great but the rest are either only mildly elevated or not at all
A Flock of Seagulls Modern Love Is Automatic
2 mid tracks and 2 of their worst
A Plea for Purging Quick Is The Word; Steady Is The Action
wtf this actually kind of good, some dece riffage n a progcore song wtf was not expecting that sounds better than usu mccore somehow. and an 8 bit effect on death wtf is going on
Aaron Shust Love Made a Way
some decent effects and songwriting on this one, belong is the best n has some grip
ABBA Waterloo
some weird ass shit mixed with some classics n generic pop rocks
abba have the weirdest ability to combine good melody n line with utter crap to the point i have a general hate for them yet cant be that mad when actually listening to their music
ABBA Arrival
starts stronger than it finishes
ABBA The Album
one of babee's better bums, chance can fuck off though
Aborted Engineering the Dead
this almost got a 1.5 for the first half being crappy bitch deathgrind but then it got decent in the second and im vibin
AC/DC High Voltage
long way to the top rulz ass and when the bagpipes come in my god, rock singer is dece, TNT is the greatest rock song oat, and it makes me very sad that i end up having to 2.5 its album due to a lackluster everything else, exchanging rocker and the school days cover for little lover and shes got balls was a terrible mistake
AC/DC Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
title fking ruuuuuuullllzzzzzz, n ofc big BAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSS, rocker n problem child get close, rest is a big meh
AC/DC High Voltage (Australia)
ac/dc started their career with a bunch of mids, tho it features their only srs love song in, uh, love song
AC/DC Powerage
yea mild powerage it'll keep you alive if you conserve it but cant do too much with this
AC/DC For Those About To Rock We Salute You
completely generic ac/dc. bonnie was prob plenty involved in bib before he died because this has no real spirit
AC/DC Flick Of The Switch
acey deecy goin ahrd but without any real bangers
AC/DC Power Up
a fair 70s rock album brought up in 2020
AC/DC '74 Jailbreak
title is great, rest is middling rock
AC/DC Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Australia)
original aus version has a cooler cover with a mid track in rip and the pretty good jailbreak from their ep
Accept Restless and Wild
decently rocky but goes on for too long and no standouts except perhaps princess but even then its too weak
Accept I'm a Rebel
eh just a rock band tryn to be a rock band
Accept Russian Roulette
another mid rock album with no highlights except almost man enough but then wtf way to ruin it with the lyrics
Accept Objection Overruled
yet another mid rock album just accept it, dat solo on this one tho
Accept Blood of the Nations
standard accept album in the 21st century
Accept Rich & Famous
a few decent cept trax
Accept Humanoid
no classics by any means but a fair enough classic 'eavy mrock bum
Acid Bath When the Kite String Pops
the vox suck and rides the metal line but classic sludge album with the creepiest choice of cover highlight in tranquilized
Acid Witch Evil Sound Screamers
look out bois they learned how to use synth keys
Acid Witch Rot Among Us
best album yet with that crystal clear prod n screechy keys, maybe one day they write an album worth spinning every month
Acid Witch Witch House
vox get dangerously close to antii, creepy death doom for sho
Ad Infinitum Chapter III - Downfall
lots of energy but is largely pure pop without anything very engaging, and naturally adding random cacophonic mccore riffs gets a penalty
Adele 21
21 yo adele finding a lot more interesting things to do with her voice, giving some elegance to the pop genre
Adele iTunes Festival: London 2011
quite the funny and down to earth englishwoman but songs still arent as entrancing as theyre meant to be
Adrenalin O.D. Ishtar
adrenalin hangover, the boys went too ahrdcore and only ahd poppunks left in the tank
Aephanemer Memento Mori

Agnostic Front Get Loud!
thrashish groovcore ruined by nude vox
Agoraphobic Nosebleed Honky Reduction
short and to the point wish the tracks went on longer
Agoraphobic Nosebleed Agorapocalypse
production too clean for grind, too many cleans, girl cant rly scream, too much 'core in the grindcore
Agoraphobic Nosebleed PCP Torpedo
a more appreciable dmy grind well executed
Ahab The Coral Tombs
sea desert is great but overall too doomy
Ahab The Call of the Wretched Sea
dece fundoom but they let it go on too long without much more interesting. dat sperm tho
Ahab The Boats of the Glen Carrig
better than their last 2 anyway
Air Supply The Whole Thing's Started

indeed their best

decent but not amazing araby tunes

Alcest Kodama
ah, il y a le metal
Alcest Le Secret (2011 Version)
not as good as orig
Alcest Sapphire (Perturbator Version)
Alestorm Black Sails at Midnight
most of the fun of this is ruined by bowes absolutely talentless voice, keelhauled is solid tho
Alestorm Back Through Time
actually impressed with some trv metal bits on this on title and terrorsquid, the power of outsource money bb. still shipwrecked and rum are the only tracks to rly bother with, the rest are about as momentary as the thousands of tiktoks you've watched
Alestorm Curse of the Crystal Coconut
Alestorm Big Ship Little Ship
a fair pirate anthem and an anti drug rapnb cover
Alexisonfire Crisis
not bad for melodic hardcore tbh. still nothing worth listening to regularly
Alexisonfire Australian Weekend
interviews somewhat interesting, acoustics bleh, live tracks pretty good
Alice Cooper Killer
avg rock but far better than the vast, vast majority of shit available at the time, dead babies a dark but very trv eulogy for all the worthless parents out there
Alice Cooper School's Out
silly but adventurous and fun
Alice Cooper Constrictor
average bebop rockz by the coop
Alice Cooper Hey Stoopid
essentially a lazier and considerably less fun trash
Alice Cooper The Eyes Of Alice Cooper
swingin pop rock that wouldnt be too bad if u got stuck with it for a while
Alice Cooper Lace and Whiskey
more love ballady than any of his other albums and better off for it tbh wheres the review ya cunts
Alice Cooper Special Forces
coop heading for that 80s mainstream rock sound that would culminate in trash
Alice Cooper Easy Action
a rockier jam rock and thus far superior to their contemporaries, quite a fan of beautiful flyaway
Alice Cooper Four Tracks From Alice Cooper
dece mid cooprocks
Alice Longyu Gao High Dragon and Universe
hyper pop more like hyper slop, save kanpai which is legit fun
All That Remains The Fall of Ideals
a variety of styles leads this mccore to not being so mccore
Amberian Dawn Darkness Of Eternity
well produced super pop, doesnt cheat you but doesnt give you a good deal either
Amebix Winter
lame moans and groans with an intrusive dwebble de dwebble baseline and left behind riffs
Amebix No Sanctuary
rather boring droner crust
Amon Amarth Once Sent from the Golden Hall
a highlight in friends of the suncross but aa's debut is actually pretty boring
Amon Amarth Fate of Norns
basically a higher quality version of their late albums save for title and pursuit
Amon Amarth Surtur Rising
Awesome cover art. War 3.5; Tock 2; Destroyer 3.5; Slaves 2; Regrets 2; Frej 1.5; Victory 4; Wrath 2.5; Beast 2.5; Doom 2
Amon Amarth Raven's Flight
mid af modern amon marths but VIKING
Amorphis Tuonela
mid album all the way, cant love it cant hate it

mid morphis, lol @ the sax, highlight in mongst stars
Amorphis My Kantele
sum mid instrums n rock songz
Amorphis Vulgar Necrolatry
an alright cover and a mid dm original

better than butt destroyer
Anata The Conductor's Departure
better than most techdeath. i like more than a few of their diddlies, and great juggs is pretty fun
Anata The Infernal Depths of Hatred
decent techdeath with a lot more thought than usual put into its composition
Andavald Undir Skyggðarhaldi
one of those dreamy modern bms. glad its so short i was bored
Angel Witch Screamin' and Bleedin'
a step down from debut i understand why it has no review

maiden/priest but in spanish, better than both tbh
Ankhara Sombras del Pasado
theres no denying that this band sucks, some of the worst pm ever made. however they are earnest, and certainly put the most effort they ever have onto this bum. and thus a well earned 2.5 for their excellent use of classic rock keys n strums
Annihilator Never, Neverland
in canada we may not have the best thrash but we do have KRAF DINNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
Antestor The Return of the Black Death
their worst album with no connection to their epic debut, mid bm that sounds like they ran out of ideas
Anthrax Volume 8: The Threat Is Real
out of the big 4 anthrax are surely the only ones who knew how to party. this album suffers from too much filler syndrome and would score higher if they'd tightened it a bit
Anthrax We've Come for You All
goddam idk what to rate this. pretty chill rocks songs without anything irritating i guess. some punk vibes
Anthrax I'm the Man
decent ep, i am the law is beast, crowd interaction on mosh is lolz
Anthrax Penikufesin
another decent ep, french antisocial is lolz wish the chorus was too
Anthrax Anthems
mid covers and a bleh track
Anti-Flag For Blood and Empire
rly just has id tell n press corpse, gets decently thrashy at points tho
Anti-Flag A New Kind of Army
dece pocks with vox so whiny they sometimes sound like an unintelligible baby
Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos
cant tell if cellos make metallica worse or better
Apocalyptica Cult
first half is pretty damn dull and hardly cello-y but it picks up slightly with some dece cello instrums
Arachnid (MAL) Weaving the Web
better quality than their full length anyway, love the lofi drums
Arcade Fire Funeral
decent here and there but nothing too exciting
Arch Enemy Burning Bridges
a decent album largely brought down by liiva being a meh singer and amott's typical hashed doodlies
Arch Enemy Black Earth
not a bad debut but they hardly touch the essence of their fellow mdmers. maiden covers pretty plain
Arch Enemy The Root of All Evil
as rerecordings in 2009 they naturally sound better, tho the difference between gossow and liiva is minimal since they both sucked at singing anyway. nevertheless immortal sounds decent, and dead inside and silverwing have quite the facelift
Arch Enemy Khaos Legions
more decentish riffs than not. yesterday to black flags is listenable, raven isnt bad, and neither is vengeance. the filler shit isnt as badly filler tho the guitar tone is off putting
Arch Enemy Covered In Blood
not even that bad tbh, tho thats more owing to the nature of the songs themselves. actually quite like zoo and more or less wings. 3 vox on 1 album, but liiva is esp bad in his covers obv he dgaf
Arch Enemy Dead Eyes See No Future
again some of their more decent songs followed by crappy covers
Arch Enemy Demo 1996
when the band still had some semblance of dignity
Arctic Monkeys Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
hippie billy talent
Ariana Grande My Everything
actually somewhat impressed. production is excellent, flow is good, guest artists are losers and completely ruin their respective tracks, but be my baby is a real song, surely her best
Ariana Grande Eternal Sunshine
her absurd justifications and the bullshit story he was having orgies behind my back aside this is a very well produced and complementary popnb album proving she'll go ahead and ride whoevers dick she wants whether its spongebob, patrick, squidward or even mr krabs. too bad thats all she stands for
As I Lay Dying The Powerless Rise
a bit heavier, almost metal album with tons of groped meh to dece mdm riffs tho never letting go of the mccore ball n chain. without conclusion is fun if completely paradoxical, n parallels is prob the best track of their career with the chorus reminding me so much of ian d'sa
As I Lay Dying Awakened
damn, roidcore be boppin
As I Lay Dying Decas
mid news, some not so bad covers, n some silly silly techno remixes
Assuck Necrosalvation
