This is a great idea for a thread.
I do have to disagree with your view on Harmony Corruption, however, but if you don't like it, that's cool. This my first ND album, so it has a special place (or something) with me. I think the songs are better than Scum and FETO. Those are good albums, but I like Napalm better when they write songs. With their first two (more so with Scum), it just seemed like they were trying to simply create aggression, and since they cite early Swans as an influence, I totally get it. But, like with Swans, they were better at writing great songs than simply conveying aggression. Also, I just saw the Decibel tour in Chicago, and Suffer the Children got the best reaction (if that means anything).
