Masonna - Ejaculation Generator (http://www.discogs.com/Masonna-Ejaculation-Generater/release/414983)

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH5EAUCzHfA)

I actually really love this album. This isn't a goof nor am I trying to troll anyone. I may not listen to Masonna daily, but when I'm in a certain mood, this album does wonders for me. I really do like the inclusion of vocals in harsh noise; it's kind of why I always go with Masonna over Merzbow. His music also seems more performance-based as opposed to done solely on a computer. Lots of emotions through this one, especially when the noise drops out to give a few lingering moments of clarity before launching back into it. What better way to open my list than with this wall of noise?

The Leaving Song Pt. II (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fwGZohSJ9g)
Silver And Cold (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BguZZ3rGKe0)

Just enough of a mix between hardcore, pop punk, faux-goth and post-hardcore for me to latch onto this album like none other in junior high. I'd say that this album is to blame for the Vampires Everywhere/Motionless In White/etc. bands of today. But like with all precursors to shit trends, I think this album is awesome! Too bad they are really, really terrible now. :(

Waiting Room (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTWSSCYUD4E)
Bad Mouth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jJWM_YPQT8)
Margin Walker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRnP5SODav4)

Here is the blueprint for so many bands. While Minor Threat held the trail-blazing path of hardcore punk with other bands, there really were no bands just like Fugazi. The groovy, danceable melodies along with the leftover intensity from Minor Threat can be traced through to a whole host of bands. I'm not sure if I'm ready to say Fugazi is a better band than Minor Threat, but they may just be the bigger band.

Abyssic Hate- Suicidal Emotions (http://www.discogs.com/Abyssic-Hate-Suicidal-Emotions/master/20017)

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jTo4VYa1pc)

This was one of the first metal albums I ever heard and I keep on coming back to it. Just the completely hopeless and depressing aura put off by this record is unlike anything I've heard since. All the emotion and expannsiveness of the current black metal scene but the riffing that comes from being a part of the awesome Australian black metal scene. Greatness.

Pillars of Mercy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCSRS__cwzM)
Manannan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt_yoIoUgK0)
Four Crossed Wands (Spell 181) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95Z6IM8xc6A)

A blackened thrash masterpiece. Absu has that certain otherworldly quality that's more apparent than ever on Tara. It's super aggressive but also just has a weird tone/musicianship to it that is totally unique and totally addicting. Proscriptor's drumming might be at his best here, especially on Pillars of Mercy. A must-have for anyone who likes metal!

SPITTIN' HOT FIYAH! That's really all you need to know about the greatest hip-hop album ever made. Each member is crazy good on their respective verses and the beats are subtle and catchy but never overpower the main attraction - the rhymes. It's menacing without being too tryhard and it's catchy without being lame. Hip-hop was forever changed after this. :D

What Is The Light? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsTbgxh7oTM)
Waiting For a Superman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKiVSuDEF2c)

Deservedly one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the 90s. It's psychedelic and happy and foreboding and catchy and weird and is the perfect summation of what The Flaming Lips are all about. I also think this is Wayne's best vocal delivery. They were too weird before and might be too weird now, but this album should have just enough to reel in casual fans as well as diehard Flaming Lips fans.

The most accesible pop punk album in recent memory? Totally. It actually blows my mind that Fireworks isn't on mainstream radio stations and ushering in a new era of good music returning to radio. All the riffs and song structures of melodic hardcore but the music of mainstream pop makes this super catchy and super awesome. Awesome lyrics, too.

The Bard's Song (In The Forest) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxGz8p_IYFc)

Blind Guardian is my favorite power metal band of all time and this might just be my favorite live album ever. It's mixed perfectly and you can still hear the crowd singing and chanting along. I think Hansi sounds amazing here and the selection of songs is just outstanding. One listen to The Bard's Song will convince anyone that they need to see Blind Guardian live ASAP.

Is that a ton of bricks dropped on your chest? Whoops, nope. It's just Asphyx. This is one of my favorite death metal albums ever and probably my favorite/the greatest death/doom album ever released. So crushing but still chock full riffs and killer grooves. If you don't break your neck to "The Krusher" and then again to "Serenade In Lead", then you aren't listening.

There has never been a band like Windir and there will never be another. Putting their totally unique spin on their own blend of black, viking and folk metal, 1184 is as brutal as it is majestic. Their story was cut far too short, but they left some amazing music behind.

Funeral Fog was one of the first metal songs I heard and it was a lost cause afterwards. DMDS is pretty much the blueprint for all 2nd-wave black metal and nothing even comes close to replicating the haunted coldness that emanates from it. Atilla's vocal delivery set the standard for every black metal vocalist that didn't want to shriek and it's still disturbing to this day. The definition of classic album.

The great thing about this album is that it's really the first of its kind and has no rules to follow or any expectations to fill. It's all about blues-filled heavy rock that's so dissonant that it warrants its own genre: heavy metal. If you haven't listened to this album yet, leave the hall.

Gorgoroth sort of "got it" a lot earlier on than most of their first-wave black metal peers. Heavier, faster and scarier, they put the evil into their sound. This album might be their most hellish offering, and Profetens Apenbaring is my favorite Gorgoroth song. Check out the awesome drumming, too!

I've never heard an album by The Hives that I didn't like.

On Avery Island is fuzzy and dancey and emotional and goofy and awesome. I actually fell in love with this album long before I heard their other release, so it'll always hold a special place in my heart. I also still know every word to Gardenhead. A must for any fan, big or small, of indie music!

Blood War III (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrQ_YvQh2lA)

The first time I heard Antaeus, it scared me so bad. I was so naive back then, but the are still one of the few remaining truly terrifying black metal bands out there. Straddling the line perfectly between black metal, death metal and war metal, DPE is a swirling murk of blasphemic metal. Blood War III is also one of my favorite songs ever.

How I got into metal was I messaged my friend who knew metal when I didn't and I told him to give me the loudest, most extreme metal song he knew of. So he sent me this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HQuUGZdY8E) and I fucking fell in love, so then he put together a bunch of songs by a bunch of bands that I listened to. That was back in the day when I only downloaded music song-by-song instead of by album, so I had only those singular metal songs for a long time. I couldn't name each one off, but when I happen upon them, I remember that they were included in that batch. Couple of examples are En Vind Av Sorg from Darkthrone, Key To The Gate by Burzum, Infinite Plateau by Velvet Cacoon, Inner War by Antaeus, etc. I went into metal backwards - didn't really get turned onto Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica until pretty late in my "listening career"

Mother Abyss (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lx8PgUcJ_o)

One of the most aggressive, angry, and downright evil albums I've ever heard. That perfect combination of old-school hardcore infused with thrash metal and death metal that makes songs like Wolverine Blues so good. I really wish Black Breath was a lot bigger than they are now - they really deserve it.

A landmark in pop-punk records. Really does combine the best of both genres. Goofy love songs disguised as melodic hardcore/punk anthems and it spawned a fucking army. These were the blueprints that were laid down for the perfect pop punk album, but it was another album that perfected the sound...

Not only is this such an important record to me because of my personal beliefs and choices, but it's such fucking good American hardcore punk music! Seriously, I think Minor Threat had the right combination of aggression and speed but mixed with clever melodies that make them possibly the best US hardcore punk band!

This is a split release with Belketre but the Vlad Tepes side was honestly the best black metal I had heard in my life up until that point when I first heard it. They were just as kvlt and underground as the other LLN bands, but they embraced melody and made what has been described as "Gaelic black metal" and it's still amazing today.

One of the most important albums in my life. It's an understatement to say that I still know every word to every song on this album - I subconciously start singing these songs all the time. I used to fall asleep to this album on my walkman. Ranging from the fast and loud, especially for the infamous Song For The Dumped, to light and more reflective, like on Missing The War - this album has it all. Each song tells its own story and each is its own little masterpiece. Might have been the greatest album of the 90s to feature a piano.

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7EzQvnA4DQ)

Radiohead's best 90's album that actually sounds like 90s music. Tons of unique and memorable songs despite mostly being formulaic rock songs. Just shows that although Radiohead is certainly a different beast nowadays, the could write good ole-fashioned rock back in the day.

You just explained why I hate The Bends :lol:

But street spirit makes up for it, so it's all good... Seriously that's not just the best Radiohead song by a fuckin' kilometer (yeah bitch I'm using the metric system, you know I'm being serious) it's one of the greatest songs I've ever heard... beautiful...

Windir - Arntor (http://www.discogs.com/Windir-Arntor/master/228899)

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6GWdwkXqhw)

There will never be another band like Windir and there will never be another album like Arntor. It seemlessly blends black metal, folk metal, actual viking metal, and then that sort of medieval dungeon tone that only Windir can do. This is a hell of an album and easily my favorite Windir release.


I'm unsure how to feel about this album in the grand scheme of things. On the one hand, it fucking rules, but on the other hand, I have reservations about it's blending (see also- my user title). I guess it's more of a case like Pantera where there was nobody like Windr, but the imitators, DEAR FUCKING GOD THE IMITATORS. :mad:

The catchiest album by any of the Big Four. I was actually super surprised by how much I absolutely love this album because I'm not a big fan of anything else by Anthrax. But there's just enough thrashing mixed with melody and catchiness to make this an instant favorite for me!

Whether you want to call it Nu-Metal or Alternative Metal or whatever, no one does this style of music better than System of a Down, and nothing even comes close to matching Toxicity in terms of heaviness, uniqueness and groove. This is by far System's best offering (although I love everything they've done) and everyone needs to own a copy.

In high school, before I got into metal, one day I went out and bought all of Rage Against The Machine's albums in one trip. One of the best decisions I've ever made. I don't consider them nu-metal, but they are easily the best band to be associated with that movement/the 90s/early 00s music movement. And I hate to be that guy, but they did get me semi-interested in politics. All their albums are amazing, but Battle of LA is just special.

Impaled won't ever really break up, Ross, Sean, Jason and Raul are all too tight with each other to let that happen. Raul and Jason especially are two super normal and laidback guys, they're perfect foils for Ross and Sean's wackiness. They'll probably never do another album of original material unless the back-catalog becomes insanely popular though.

I remember reading once that this album was the perfect heavy metal album. And in a way it's true. It's heavy, fast, isntantly memorable, abrasive, melodic, and everything in between. It's definitely not perfect, but that's what makes it the flagship heavy metal album. For the longest time I held Ride The Lightning over this, but I keep finding myself coming back to Puppets more than anything else that Metallica has done. "Disposable Heroes" is the best thrash song that Metallica has ever done and "The Thing That Should Not Be" is one of Metallica's best slower songs. It deserves every ounce of praise (and criticism) that people put on it, but it'll always rise above.

NOTB is too but there are no better album out there imho. Happy at least to see it on your list

I enjoy way more the self title over Battle Of Los Angeles but still is a great release

I enjoy some Sleep, Celtic Frost & Judas Priest but at low doses and by no means they are even on my top 50 bands

I've tried a few Anal Nathrakh songs over the past year or so just because you seem to loved them so much. It's fucking angry chaos but I can't say I dislike it. They're a bit extreme for my taste but really not bad, that Ice Blasting Storm Winds song is great.

I enjoyed a bit of Blind Guardian for maybe a year and even went to see them in concert once but that didn't last long. I don't like them anymore or any power metal band for that matter

the rest I don't know

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMcN0yrMQJ4) This comp pretty much focuses on all the hits they had prior to 2001 and is perfect for anyone looking for some of the most finely-crafted 90s pop punk. No one could touch Green Day during the 90s, and it literally causes me physical sickness when I think about what they've become since then.

There are hints of their drone past and experimental future here and here, but overall this is balls-out no-shame rock and fucking roll.

You knew it would be up here eventually. Combining elements of black metal, progressive metal, atmospheric/ambient music but most of all, fucking THRASH, this album rips from beginning to end. The instruments, the vocals, the production. Modern thrashterpiece, for sure! It's not too late to jump on the hype train!

Tons of memories associated with this album. I actually burned this CD to my Xbox and would listen to it while I played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. That's probably how I memorized the lyrics. I also remember watching their $2 Bill concert on MTV2...which they might have been the first in that series? I don't remember, but they killed. Whereas The Strokes had kind of a "Too Cool" mentality, The Hives fully embraced punk and incorporated it with their brand of high-energy garage rock. I actually really like all of The Hives' albums, but this will forever be my favorite.

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iza2jJQb4iw)

For the longest time, I would only listen to Weezer's Blue Album. I had their discography downloaded, but that's all I ever listened to. One day I just decided to check this album out...and I fell in love. Everything about this album is everything good about 90s college rock/the indie scene. It's loud and abrasive, but still really catchy. Rivers' self-depricating lyrics are at their best here and each song is brilliantly crafted. The standout to me is the trio of The Good Life/El Scorcho/Pink Triangle. You'll want to mosh but you'll lose your voice from singing along so hard. Amazing.

Full album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJr2SVFTI1o)

This is one of the greatest electronic albums ever made. Maybe THE best? It doesn't try to be deep, intelligent electronic music. It's two robots celebrating their love of disco and the beach while morphing it with their circuits and motherboards rooted deep in house movement. Honestly, I don't think the influence this album has on the popularity of electronic music in general now can be overstated. Discovery is pretty much the Sgt. Pepper's of electronic music of any kind.

You have goofy songs about one-night stands with redheads (Julianne) and a being outcasts (Undergroud) balanced with serious more introspective songs about feeling out of place (Best Imitation Of Myself) or a story about a dissolving relationship (The Last Polka). Also, the song Uncle Walter is the reason I picked up a bass guitar. The best piano rock album! EVER!

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rvsn3iSvAP8)

Let's put aside all my personal feelings on Andrew W.K. - that I think he's the most geuinely nice guy in entertainment. Let's not focus on his more eclectic ventures into music today. Let's even put aside that he's now married to one of the sexiest women I've ever seen holy god damn have you fucking seen cherie lily do yourself a favor and youtube her song dripping wet and get ready to fap. Let's just focus on this anomaly of an album. This is perfect pop metal. I'm not talking about shit like Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat or whatever. This is still heavy metal, but it's pop music with fucking balls. It's about an inch-deep, but it never asks to be taken more seriously than that. The one message here is simply - PARTY! Each song is fun and memorable and upbeat and still manages to be damn good music. Ready To Die is probably my favorite on the album, but the title track is nothing short of genius as well. This is one of the happiest and heaviest albums you'll ever hear and everyone should own a shrine to it.

This is the Black Album of pop punk. It was a monster when it came out, if only for the few songs that got insanely popular on radio, but the whole album is filled with 100% perfect pop punk. Growing up, Take Off Your Pants And Jacket was one of the albums that turned music into an obsession with me, but in the last few years this album overtook TOYPAJ as my favorite blink-182 album. Each song is memorable and is a blast to sing along to. Mark and Tom sound their best on this album - especially Tom, considering where he's at nowadays. There are no filler songs on this album and it's blink's best album by far. Get dat pop punk, son.

I think this was the first album I heard that I considered all the tracks other than just the radio hits. It was also the first I heard where I could appreciate the song-writing ability of the performer instead of just "oh, it sounds good!" You have your continuation of Reinhold Messner-era Ben Folds Five with sort of slower and semi-progressive/experimental tracks like "The Ascent Of Stan" and "Still Fighting It", the goofy story-driven up-tempo songs with "Zak and Sara" and the title track, and then you've got every girl's favorite song rounding out the album But there's jazz, blues, pop, rock; just a multitude of sounds that are combined perfectly here. This is the album that solidified my love for Ben Folds and the belief that he's one of the greatest storytellers in music. :party:

I fully believe that this is the greatest heavy metal album ever recorded. It's as heavy as anything out there, riff and solo-driven, amazing vocals, amazing songs, amazing atmosphere...it just has everything. It's enough of the heavy metal sound from before and just enough of progression and memorable tricks to make it stand out. If someone asked me "What song best exemplifies heavy metal?" well...I'd show them Ace of Spades by Motorhead. :eyes: But after that, I'd pick any of the songs here. I don't know of any metal fan that doesn't know all the words to Aces High. Rime Of The Ancient Mariner is the definition of an epic in music and is coupled with the title track right before, which just so happens to be one of the greatest heavy metal songs ever written. It's just really hard to talk about individual songs on this album when they're all so fucking perfect. Needless to say, everyone needs this album. Twice.

Do you like The Wonder Years? The Story So Far? Any of these new melodic hardcore/pop punk/easycore bands that are awesome and making serious waves in the music industry right now? They all owe their existence to New Found Glory and specifically this album. The best example of what can happen when you combine the pop punk sound of Green Day and blink-182 with the hardcore styles of bands like The Descendents, Kid Dynamite and others. The result was pop punk with an edge. They're love songs disguised as moshable hardcore songs. The formula has been aped from this album so much since it came out, but no one can touch the original. My favorite pop punk album by far.

This was the first album I ever heard that was a 10/10, A+ 100% perfect album to me. It's the catchiest pop rock album I've ever heard, but each song has its own identity and it just has brilliant songwriting all over it. In fact, Good Day won a John Lennon songwriting award. There are about as many styles on here as there are different song subjects. You've got your typical "Introduce The Band" type song that's just as much hip-hop as it is pop rock with "Welcome To Tally Hall", or the marching-band brass party section of "The Whole World And You." Or maybe the fast-paced song about stalking the Olsen Twins with "Two Wuv" or an island-jam complete with bongo's about someone who gives out banana's. Yeah. But each song is unique and memorable and is one of the best albums I've ever heard.

Also: please watch the video for Two Wuv. It's 10 minutes long but is my favorite music video ever.

When I first heard this album, I connected with it on an emotional level that I hadn't experienced in a really long time. I guess ever since I got into metal, I took a much more music-focused approach to music and really left the lyrical side behind. Which, with metal, is pretty much okay and expected for a while. But this was like a fucking sledgehammer to my face the first time I heard it. I'd be surprised if anyone told me they listened to this album and couldn't relate to any of the lyrics. Of course TA's brand of screamo/post-hardcore is awesome music on its own, but the lyrics are really what boosted this up into my top 5 albums ever.

Slayer's best album. A much-needed break from just SPEEEEEED and nothing else, this showed that slow songs can be just as evil as breakneck ones. The 1-2 punch of South Of Heaven -> Silent Scream is a perfect example of how the two styles work so well together. It's better song-writing than Reign In Blood and more thrash than Seasons In The Abyss. I really don't know what else to say than it's the best thrash album released by the Big Four and maybe even the greatest thrash record ever. It's evil as fuck, and isn't that what Slayer is all about? 666 horns out of 666.

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtYmX8wAEdA)

When I first got into Anaal Nathrakh, I only got to semi-live out the hype of Eschaton before it was released. Hell Is Empty is really the first AN release that I got to get hyped out of my mind for. I discussed every little thing about this album for days on end with other AN fans and the band themselves. And when it finally came out...it just absolutely blew me away. The sound on this album, to me, has a very futuristic feel to it. But like...futuristic in the way the album cover feels. Like, the album feels like the musical accompaniment to a Warhammer 40k universe - grim, desolate, but crisp and clean and efficient about causing misery and death. "Screaming Of The Unborn" and "Virus Bomb" have been my go-to "FUCK I need something loud and heavy RIGHT NOW" songs for a really long time. Genetic Noose feat. Joe Horvath of Circle Of Dead Children is my favorite guest-vocals Anaal Nathrakh song ever, and Castigation And Betrayal is my favorite album-ender for AN. This album is the right way to polish an extreme metal record without dredging into shit like djent or deathcore. One of the most extreme metal records ever made.

Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro (http://www.discogs.com/Anaal-Nathrakh-The-Codex-Necro/master/65864)

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnSyIPHQj2s)

This is the greatest extreme music album ever made. That's not opinion, it's a fact.

When I received my first little batch of metal songs from a friend, Submission Is For The Weak was on it. It scared the absolute shit out of me. When he sent me The Supreme Necrotic Audnance, I couldn't even finish the song because it freaked me out too much. As I finally eased into it, it quickly became my favorite album of all time. It's not just black metal and grindcore with some electronic/industrial elements. It has just sinister undertones throughout the whole album. Kind of in the way that if used correctly, clean vocals and melodies can be extremely unnerving (hello King Diamond), Mick kind of implemented some of that ethos in his guitar playing here. The Supreme Necrotic Audnance and Pandemonic Hyperblast have some of these and it just makes everything so unsettling.

But the best thing about this album is that it is unrelenting hate and malice through-and-through. If you know the videogame "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream", I think The Codex Necro is the soundtrack to the events that happened before the beginning of that game. It's cold and mechanical but inhuman in the way vocals and samples are used throughout it. It's really a masterpiece that is obviously much more than just two guys recording instruments and vocals. The ending title track just concludes the album with a cacophonous racket that exemplified everything right with Anaal Nathrakh and extreme metal in general - terrifying, brutal noise.

I have recommended people wanting to get into Anaal Nathrakh to start elsewhere. This is just too fucking abrasive and maddening for a first-time extreme music listener to get into. Dave once said on a forum that he's really influenced by harsh/power electronics such as Whitehouse and Masonna, and it's totally evident on TCN.

There is no other album like this. There will never be another album like this. The best extreme metal album ever. My favorite album of all time.

I went to check the stats from my Slayer virtual shows that I do here, remember those well yeah I keep stats of every song I play from every band that i do shows. and I do a lot of them (actually 177 for Slayer so far since the summer of 2008) :eyes: ... yeah I know... well it turned out that Diabolus was also lower than SOH based purely on songs played per show, but I think I overall like it better. The Fact that on SoH , the title song, Silent Scream and Spill The Blood are played pretty often makes it that the average of songs played per show is higher then on Diabolus too.

anyway so a part from those 3 songs I always strongly disliked Mandatory Suicide, imho the most overated Slayer song.

Behind The Crooked Cross and Ghost Of War are ok

the rest I don't like

but hey, it was just my taste, there's no wrong or right answer, and even if I,m wrong, it's ok I can live with that


Cheers !

Though, I actually do think it is a tad overrated/played

Why not? They're fun! (not to mention the reason most kids nowadays know thrash beyond the big 4 after 2001, like it or not).

The dude knew his thrash and speed metal, for sure. That's about it though. I highly doubt that most of the kids getting into that music these days credit him as a major influence. The only reason I know who he is is because I used to argue with him about the validity of Testament as a good thrash band or whether or not Overkill was better than Slayer. That was around ten years ago. Dude's moved on and so should you. His reviews aren't well written either and half of them have been deleted in the past while. They're passionate, but there are far better reviewers who post on M-A than him. His legacy is his review of Master of Puppets, which is more of an essay with an extreme viewpoint.

I "moved on" the second I bought Slaughter of The Soul, which is one of his lowest reviewed albums, not to mention Covenant. Hell, I even bought The Legacy, which, while was not given a bad grade, I'm sure he would have loved it if I had purchased one of the 5 or 6 thrash albums he gave upper 80s-90s too that I don't own yet instead. I just like occasionally sourcing him when I feel it's appropriate, not to mention that even after the quote I mentioned that I kinda sorta agreed with PowerMaiden on the subject, so get off your high horse.

The only thing I know about UltraBoris is that he gave Master of Puppets at 0% which basically tells me everything I need to know.

+1

Also his style is that of a 14 year old message board troll after a Monster Energy Drink bender writing reviews during Halo load screens.

Doesn't matter what his style was; 14 year old or an 80 year old, the message mattered and it connected, which is why after 5 or more years after damn retiring from metal-archives himself, it still matters.

Edit: I'll save it for the thrash thread. I don't want to rain on Manky's parade.

Abyssic Hate- Suicidal Emotions (http://www.discogs.com/Abyssic-Hate-Suicidal-Emotions/master/20017)

Full Album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jTo4VYa1pc)

This was one of the first metal albums I ever heard and I keep on coming back to it. Just the completely hopeless and depressing aura put off by this record is unlike anything I've heard since. All the emotion and expannsiveness of the current black metal scene but the riffing that comes from being a part of the awesome Australian black metal scene. Greatness.

I've been pretty much going through this and listening to anything I hadn't heard, but I'd like to especially thank you for this. This album is just fantastic.

Also, that Fireworks album kicks ass as well. :fist:

Sweet! This makes me happy. ^o^ Abyssic Hate was one of my first handful of metal songs and I've always loved them. I'd also recommend early Forgotten Tomb if you like that.
