Well, I'll put it this way: Although I don't listen to it nearly as much as I used to, I still listen to Master of Puppets front to back every once in a while. Darkness Descends? Hardly ever. I've got Merciless Death and Death is Certain on thrash mixes, among others, but I really have to be in the mood for it to listen to Darkness Descends all the way through. So from the standpoint of being ultra-aggressive, heads-down thrash the likes of which hadn't really been seen at that point, yes Darkness Descends destroys Master of Puppets. However, for listenability (lol is that even a word?), catchiness and overall song composition, I favour Master of Puppets by a long shot. That's why I rate the two album the same. Of course if we were getting down to actually ranking them, I'd probably give Puppets a flat 90 and Darkness would get like a 92.

As for Peace Sells? That album is head-and-shoulders above them. It's pretty much a top 5 thrash album, all-time.

Fair enough.

So I heard this album for the first time today.

1) It's not as good as Infernal Overkill.

2) Schmier's shrieks can be a little laughable sometimes.

3) Mike's riffs can be a little ejaculatory sometimes.

4) It grooves quite nicely, and does so during a time when groove meant a simple but effective backbeat to hold a riff rather than hip-hop tempo emulating "PEOPLE EQVL SHIT" douchebaggery.

5) Curse The Gods fucking owns.


Interestingly enough, when metal-archives.com did their top whatever thrash albums of all time, this was the highest ranking Destruction album.

i assume my previous post was deleted due to the cover art. Well, here's the review without it, ya prudes!

Massive Appendage - The Severed Erection - December 23, 1986

When you come across an album that looks as ridiculous as this one does, your first thought is that it will be hilariously awful. With song titles like "The Essence of Sperm" and "A.N.A.L. Spices", how could this be anything but a riot? Suprisingly though, once you get past the pretty shitty production, The Severed Erection is a pretty competent thrash album. The first two tracks, "Ejaculator" and the title track are good examples of well written thrash songs, as long as you can ignore the juvenile lyrics. The guitar playing is excellent throughout, leading one to wonder if these Aussies could have flown higher if they had decided to create a more intelligent image for themselves. There are far worse bands who had multiple releases in the 80's than Massive Appendage, yet because of their idiotic choice of a band name and album cover very few people outside of Sydney probably ever heard this album until the internet age.

Let me leave you with this: The chorus of the song "Massive Appendage" goes something like this, from what I can make out, "Massive cocks flying through the atmosphere. Oh my god they shot a load in his ear." Seriously. I could be hearing it wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what they're saying.

Standouts: The Severed Erection, Ejaculator

Score: 5/10

I don't think those songtitles are appropriate for this board either, can we delete those too?

That cover was pretty raunchy. Not Waco Jesus raunchy but immature fifteen year old raunchy.

I expect more from a fellow Keswickian.
