Well, I can't argue with fourteen to zero. I got To Mega Therion. What really sold me was Onioners comment on the first page saying it was "one of the most evil albums" he had heard. Funny thing was both stores had the first album, so I was almost inclined to get that instead. But, I went with To Mega Therion.

Thanks guys.

I really like To Mega Therion. At first listen I wasn't too sure but by song four Dawn of Meggido I was sold. I heard the Tom G. Warrior of today more on that song than any. And on the four or five listens since I've loved everything even more. The only songs I can do without are the intro Innocence and Wrath, the segue Tears in a Prophet's Dream and the bonus track Return to the Eve. Necromantical Screams is probably my favorite song. I love the backing vocals in that song.

Granted, by todays standards it's not very evil but I can only imagine how this came across thirty years ago. They really sound like no other band of the time. Just ugly.

Obituary sound like pretty much every song on this album, from the riffs to the guitar tone. And the band Sigh in their earlier days too.

Yea, you could argue Obituary made a career out of jocking the Morbid Tales sound, of course by 1989 Frost was doing Cold Lake so....yeah.

I think when Tom G. Warrior steps lightly on his tippy-toes in bunny socks it's still heavier than anything any of us could ever do.

It's probably going to be next. I sampled a bit on YouTube last night just to get a vibe for it. The production sounded a little tinnier than I'd like but it sounded angrier.

Is Nemesis/whateveris any good?

It's one of those albums where I can't decide if it's great and I just don't like it, or it's just crap...

Seriously. Vanity/Nemesis confuses the shit out of me.
