Re: 2020 Albums

January has been my favourite metal month in ages! Some brilliant cheesy power metal in Brothers of Metal and Victorius, some good old school Rage, the *amazing* old school Euro thrash of Bütcher (seriously, the new album, 666 Goats Carry My Chariot is stunning!), plus Midnight and Annihilator and t...

Re: Next Announcement

Another terrible announcement. What a disappointment the 20th anniversary has proven to be!

Re: 2020 Band Ranking list

This is where all the main bands sit on my Spotify chart, which I've been using for 10 years or so. 29. Dark Tranquillity - 1,759 plays 36. Judas Priest - 1,443 75. Sacred Reich - 813 84. Saxon - 734 150. Gloryhammer - 349 162. Orange Goblin - 315 233. Behemoth - 176 249. Cattle Decapitation - 156 2...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

For me, of all the bands who have experimented and altered their syle over the years, the two which have always succeeded at whatever they've tried, and have near faultless discographies, are Voivod and Enslaved.

Re: Helloween 2020

Good news - thanks for posting. Should we expect this to be another three hour show? I will go to one of the shows. Sunday and Monday are frustrating days though. SeeTickets has the Manchester show at £33.75 which is great value. It's frustrating that I'll be out of the country when tickets go on s...

Re: Next Announcement

I like Priest but I just can't get excited about seeing them without either KK or Tipton. It's as if the heart has been ripped out of them, like Maiden carrying on without Murray and Harris. Behemoth I can take or leave too. After a good start it's gone a bit pear shaped for me again, only Sacred Re...

Re: 2019 Albums

The new Alcest is brilliant, somewhat predictably. I like the new Mayhem and Nile too although it's questionable whether they'll maintain my interest for long. Spotify is great btw. Ten quid a month for access to virtually everything ever in good quality (indeed, perfectly good quality for most peop...

Re: Razor - Debut UK Show

I always thought Razor were second tier thrash but they're one of the few thrash acts I've never seen and they certainly have enough decent songs to play a good set. If it had been a Saturday I think I'd have travelled for it just to tick them off but I don't think I can be arsed with taking a day o...

Re: 2019 Albums

Warcrab - Damned In Endless Night Doomy OSDM. Reminds me of Heartwork era Carcass and Bolt Thrower in places. I know most of Warcrab very well and year, they're huge fans of that sort of stuff. I could be accused of bias, being that they're mates of mine, but their new album is huge. I always thoug...

Re: Rate The Bands - Results!

Yeah Motorhead were definitely the worst. Slayer were great both times and Ghost were fantastic.

You're back! Just in time to organize the top 20 albums of the year :lol: I'm honoured to have been missed :lol: I didn't go to Bloodstock this year so kind of drifted away from the forum...sure it's been no more than a couple of months though. I'm going to struggle to come up with 20 metal albums ...

Re: Who is "The Greatest Metal Band" of all time?

The suggestion that Lamb of God could be broadly considered as the greatest metal band of all time is...staggering.
