Yes the songs are cheesy and bland. I was hoping it would be heavy with high pitched vocals like the first two. The Mower gave me high hopes, but it was a let down.


Listening to Triptykon right now, it's good.

The new Manticora album Safe is fantastic. They're a Prog band but I'd highly recommend this to the thrash fans. Definitely check it out if you haven't.

08 Wuthering Heights - Salt
09 Vanden Plas - The Seraphic Clockwork
10 Powerworld - Human Parasite
11 Dreyelands - Rooms of Revelation
12 Avantasia - Angel of Babylon
13 Sinbreed - When Worlds Collide
14 Anthriel - The Pathway
15 White Wizzard - Over the Top
16 Star One - Victims of the Modern Age
17 SoulSpell - The Labyrinth of Truths
18 Royal Hunt - X
19 Triosphere - The Road Less Travelled
20 Tarot - Gravity of Light

Such little difference separates most of these for me that a ranking is almost pointless. New Seventh Wonder definitely has potential to eventually claim the #1 spot, but I haven't listened to it enough yet.
No firewind? this surprises me, as much of a fan as I thought you to be?

and, isn't this years allen/lande album called the showdown

Yeah, definitely my bad on the Allen/Lande CD, it is The Showdown. I must not have been paying attention when I typed it.

As for the Firewind, it would be one of about 5 runner-ups to my list. I love them, but I can't help but think the new album was really pedestrian. There's only like 5 or 6 songs I really really like and want to listen to. Some OK stuff, and some definite filler.

My new favorite release of 2010, hands down, goes to Oceano. There's no deathcore album that can top Contagion. I thought I'd download it just for the lulz, but I was totally blown away and as embarrassing as that should be to admit, I feel no shame. It's like they turned up their brutality level to 150%. You may be asking yourself, "How is this possible?" It just fucking is. It's so brutal I can't explain the epic brutalness taking place. The breakdowns raped my virgin ears and had me uncontrollably headbanging. Adam's vocals sound like cute farm animals being tortured to their deaths. The guitars sound like machines crushing the bones of small children. The blast beats are more intense than anything George Kollias (of Nile) could pull off. You best pick this shit up, bros. You have to experience it for yourself to truly understand how incredibly brutal this shit is. The feeling it gives me is most comparable to the time I took the biggest shit of my life. It's just that good.

^Really?, I might check it out now. Anyways, Son Of Auerlius's record really impressed me. It's a great progessive tech-death release that reminds a lot of The Faceless. Check it out if you haven't already.

That's what I thought. Half of his post makes me think he's being serious, but the other half makes me think he's just fucking with us.

BTW, I listened to the song. Nothing special about it if you ask me.
