What? I said that Skeletonwitch were overrated, dumbass. I love Vektor and Revocation There's a period in between "one of the most overrated bands" and "along with Vektor, Revocation, Warbringer".

I feel that way about quite a few of the "new wave" of thrash bands apart from Vektor and maybe Revocation.

Anthrax - Worship Music
Megaforce Records



01. Worship
02. Earth On Hell
03. The Devil You Know
04. Fight 'Em Til You Can't
05. I'm Alive
06. Hymn 1
07. In The End
08. The Giant
09. Hymn 2
10. Judas Priest
11. Crawl
12. The Constant
13. Revolution Screams

So uh, it's Anthrax. With a new album. With Belladonna singing again. Which is pretty good, until you realize it isn't a thrash metal album - which, believe it or not, makes this album shine the more. Diehard thrashers who believed that there'd be another Among the Living someday will obviously bash this album, for a standard heavy metal release, it's pretty damn good. With the only exceptions The Devil You Know and Fight 'Em 'Till You Can't, this album is a return to form for Anthrax, after a few shitty albums with Dan Nelson (inb4 I piss off some Nelson fans); both Ian and Belladonna get their spotlight moments here, especially on Earth On Hell, my favorite from the album.

Earth On Hell

Where are these albums with Dan Nelson on vocals?

Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn Of Events
Roadrunner Records



01. On the Back of Angels
02. Build Me Up Break Me Down
03. Lost Not Forgotten
04. This is the Life
05. Bridges in the Sky
06. Outcry
07. Far from Heaven
08. Breaking All Illusions
09. Beneath the Surface

With Mike Portnoy gone, lots of butthurt fanboys complained that DT wouldn't be the same. While that may be true (I did feel much more prog rock in this record than prog metal) this album is no less DT than before. Mike Mangini is an appropriate replacement for Portnoy, and LaBrie's songwriting is great here. The only complaints I have are as mentioned earlier the amount of clean parts - it became monotonous at a certain point, maybe explaining why the only track that stands out to me (and how it stands out!) is Build Me Up, Break Me Down, one of my favorite DT songs to date now.

Build Me Up Break Me Down

LaBrie probably has a say, but Petrucci and Rudess pretty much have complete control of the band. Petrucci actually wrote all of the drums for Magini (while letting him make a few changes) and most of the lyrics for the album.
