Pick my birthday present...?

So I'm torn between quite a few CD's right now...

Death- Spiritual Healing
Bathory- Bathory
Bathory- Blood Fire Death
King Diamond- Them
Possessed- Beyond The Gates
Kreator- Endless Pain
Venom- At War With Satan


Obviously I can't get all of them, and while I'll probably get more than one of them, I'd like a little help in decisions. For those of you who think you know my tastes, a little word or two why you think it would suit me would be nice in addition to voting!

These are all good choices, but if you like King Diamond at all, you NEED "Them."

I'd vote Conspiracy, but I'll go with Them.

Damn, tough call.

Not Spiritual Healing, simply because that's the weakest Death album (though still a pretty solid DM record).

Bathory is (obviously) one of my favorite records ever, but I have a feeling you might get too turned off by the "it's just Venom worship!" reaction that a lot of people have (it's not JUST Venom worship, btw).

Blood Fire Death might be a good choice; I know you really like "Enter the Eternal Fire", and BFD has two more epic tracks like that. The tracks in between are absolutely insane thrash madness, so you can't really go wrong there either.

Them is a great record, but I'm usually more inclined to listen to Abigail or Conspiracy, so meh.

Beyond the Gates is a great, great album, but it's no Seven Churches.

Endless Pain is a pretty excellent debut for Kreator, but not their strongest effort.

At War with Satan is also an excellent record, but you need to get Welcome to Hell and Black Metal first, if you don't already have them.


So, I guess my vote is for Blood Fire Death.



P.S. In b4 Them wins

I've had both of those for a while. "Welcome To Hell" was hard to get into, simply because of a poor signal to noise ratio, but I've warmed up to it. Nonetheless, I do like "Black Metal" better.

I also already own "Abagail" One of my favorite metal albums actually.

P.P.S. UltraBoris is totally dead on about "Endless Pain" as an album title.


"It also has one of the most simply awesome album titles ever. 'What are you listening to?' ENDLESS PAIN!!!! Doesn't get more Fucking Metal than that."

Damn skippy. Ultraboris also doesn't like the "Venom worship" on the first Bathory album, but whatever.
