Vektor and Cormorant are both going to be very good, I think, but I don't know about top ten. Maybe for Cormorant. Maybe.

Brad saying that these are the two most overrated bands discussed on this site is a bit much, though.

I'm definitely looking forward to this list, although it's getting to be that it's more for the writing style and less for the musical opinions expressed therein nowadays.

OH NO HE DINT

I repeat, on this site.

Nowhere in real life on the Web do people go on about Black Future or Metazoa like you people.

It's also overrated at Metal-Archives and Thrash Unlimited. Black Future is the most overrated thrash record ever. Yes, it's good, but it's really not that good. I can name tons of newer Thrash albums (old or new) that are way better.

I'm interested in the new one though because it seems to be quite a bit shorter.

Yeah, prolly. At the very least, most of your stuff will likely be on my list somewhere, because chances are I'm going to get way too over-ambitious and try to review like 150 albums or some shit like that. The thing might get published by June this time around, especially since I haven't even started it yet.

25. Lionize - Destruction Manual
(Hardline Entertainment)

After a handful of tours opening for Clutch, it's not all that surprising that Maryland reggae rockers Lionize have finally grown into their skin. Where Space Pope and the Glass Machine was an overreaching mess that dabbled as much in Pink Floyd as it did Bob Marley, Destruction Manual sounds an awful lot like From Beale Street to Oblivion run through a reggae filter. Somehow the songs are more epic for it, whether the band rides simple, stupid riffs to pay dirt ("Dumb and Dangerous," "DC Is Tropical") or let the music breathe in huge, spaced-out passages ("Killers and Crooks," "Surrender"). Frontman Nathan Bergman's singing voice, once just a smoother take on Neil Fallon's gravelly croon, has found its identity, and his lyrical wordplay, while far simpler than his Clutch counterpart, is finally clever enough to make the hooks effective. This record succeeds not just as a pastiche of more talented influences but as the moment where Lionize became a great band in their own right.

"Nation Builders"
