Youtube Sessions (V)

Wolfchant - Determined Damnation
2009, NoiseArt Productions

Folkish metal, with harsh vocals and fast, happy melodies. I can't say I loathe them and I do like listening to specific songs now and then. However, this has little effect on me. The music relies on the singer and the guitarist on the most part, leaving the few synths in the background.

Ad Hominem - A New Race for A New World
2003, Undercover Records

Powerful and hateful black metal by this French Genocide worshipper. The only thing I had heard by them was "Dictator - A Monument of Glory" and this album is slightly weaker, but still raw and rich in music. Sounds like the microphone would explode on some screaming moments of Wodhanaz.

Infernal Revulsion - Devastate Under Hallucination
2007, Goregiastic Records
Piece of shit. They should be called Infernal Trigger Use.

Ouroboros - Glorification of A Myth
2011, Self-released

This is mathematically remarkable. A wonderful piece of modern death metal and virtuosic musicianship. Highly recommended.

Thy Art Is Murder - The Adversary
2010, Skull And Bones Records
Lots of good moments for hardcore dancing. It actually is a great album in the deathcore area, for I enjoy most of the songs and a couple of standouts are Laceration Penetration, Engineering The Antichrist, Flesh Oracle and The False Prophet.

System of A Down - Toxicity
2001, American Recordings

I like Needles, Chop Suey!, Science and Toxicity. I truly hate the rest of the album. Including Aerials, I can't stand listening to that particular song everyone's lost their mind over. SOAD's success is huge anyway, but still it's not for everyone. A band does not choose it's fanbase.

Motorhead - Ace of Spades
1980, Bronze Records

Who has a negative opinion about this band?

Morbid Angel - Gateways to Annihilation
2000, Earache Records

A hell of an album. I have some problems with the plastic sound of the drums and the production in general, but that's all. The band was doomed to release lesser records after an ultra massive debut like "Altars of Madness", but they still released good albums, this being one of them. Forget Illud.

Entombed - Wolverine Blues
1993, Earache Records

This is exactly what the title says. A turn into death'n'roll with immense success, that only clouded the minds of the death metal purists of "Left Hand Path". I love them both. Ridiculously catchy riffs everywhere.

Samael - Ceremony of Opposites
1994, Century Media Records
It can be described as the middle ground between the early primitive black metal era and the later more electronic/space metal path that Samael followed. The injection of various sample sounds had already begun with this album and I don't have a problem with that, to be sincere. Another band with a successful genre change.
