I just went and listened to this. I have to admit, I haven't been a fan of Amon Amarth, but I like this song. So far that's only two AA songs I've gotten into, this and Bleed for Ancient Gods. I'll have to give the entire new album a listen when I can.

That's why I posted my playlist here. All the metalhead's got a good thread going here so why not ya know? Oh, and I can see where your comming from with the Satyricon thing. Yeah, I'm somewhat worried that they might become shit. BUT, for now, they're not. Satyr and Frost havent stopped writing the good tunes.

Anyone heard the new Maiden track, The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg? I like it, and cannot wait for A Matter of Life and Death.

ALL HAIL MAIDEN!

Hell yes. It sounds like Maiden's gonna complete another trilogy of great albums. "Brave New World", "Dance of Death", and "A Matter of Life and Death" will be a nice companion trilogy to their last great set of albums "The Number of the Beast", "Piece of Mind", and "Powerslave".

Does anyone here like Evergrey? I just ask because I was listening to "When the Walls Go Down" again, and I'd like to vote it best use of spoken word by someone who's not the vocalist. Definately check it out.

IMO, that honor goes to Henry Rollins for his part in Tool's "Bottom".

Well, this is a bit different, as it's a sound clip of a speech, from a film or something. You should try it though, bloody good.

I love what I've heard of this band, but haven't heard this one itself. Is it very different from Monumental In Its Sorrow?

Eh... in a way. Tearstained's first 3 albums were called the "depressive trilogy" or something like that. Meaning they had a very depressing sound, yet still had that raw BM feel. The new one is a totally pissed off (thats the way I'd put it) BM record. Needless to say, it's stil Tearstained, and if you liked Monumental then you should def check it out.

Have any of you guys heard Demiricous? I strongly urge anyone who likes thrash/death metal to check out "One (Hellbound)", it's only 10 bucks and it's one my favorite recent metal albums.

Finally another person who likes 'em. Sounds like those guys have great taste Every time I'd try to turn someone onto them from the Elder Scrolls forum, they'd write them off as a Slayer clone.

Well, the new Lamb of God isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it's still too much of a Pantera clone for my tastes... I'd give it about a 7/10.

Check out this hilarious interview (if you can call it that) with Mayhem from the film "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey". Necrobutcher is hammered and has a lot to say:

Lamb of God is far heavier and more technical than Pantera. Plus Pantera's first album wasn't that great.

Everything about "Sacrament" is just taking Pantera and throwing it into the "Palaces"/"Ashes" LoG style. I like the album, but it isn't all that original or noteworthy, except for the ripping off of Pantera. And if you're referring to Pantera's power metal days I agree, but if you mean "Cowboys from Hell", I have to disagree, as that's a classic in my book.

While I love both Lamb of God and Pantera- I got to say that yeah, in my opinion Lamb of God is far more technechal than Pantera. Dimebag was a better shredder, however.

When I first heard Redneck by Lamb Of God, I was just dreading this album. It actually suprised the hell out of me. It's actually pretty good save for Redneck and a few other Pantera moments here or there. The guitars sound more technical then on Ashes Of The Wake which is a very good thing. I just don't like Randy's vocals anymore. Better than the fake Phil on Redneck, but I miss the raw intensity he displayed on New American Gospel.

Yeah, there are some moments from Randy on "Sacrament" that just make me wanna hurl. I think it's the outro to "Forgotten (Lost Angels)" where they're repeating the chorus or something over and over and then Randy does background vocals that keep say "burn" and it sounds horrible. The rest of the band puts in a great performance, but Randy's just "meh." Does anyone else think it's odd that they gave up on political songs and this is the result?

Come on, you have to admit Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven rank among the greatest metal albums of all time. They're just flat out better than CFH.

I like them just about all equally. In fact, "CFH" has one that that "Vulgar" lacks: diversity. "Driven" has one or two out there slowed down tracks and "CFH" has the classic "Cemetary Gates", but "Vulgar" is just almost all thrashing. I like it, but it makes me want to stop listening to the album sooner. Regardless, all of Pantera's albums except for "Reinventing the Steel" are classics to me.

No, I like CFH better than both of those. VDoP is great too, but CFH just barely edges it out. Far Beyond Driven is just boring drivel as far as I'm concerned.

I like Great Southern Trendkill quite a bit as well.

I really think their first album with Phil, Power Metal, is a great underrated record. And all of their early albums are often unfairly lumped together with glam metal just because of their hair. The music is really more in the NWOBHM style.

Everybody who likes 2nd era Pantera should really listen to Exhorder - Slaughter In the Vatican. That album was the blueprint they used when they decided to "toughen up."

She does have shredding skills, there's no doubt about that. And I always enjoy when a new publicity photo of her turns up. But since she never applies her talents to a good song, she's never really been anything other than a novelty act.

Pantera is, and will always be one of my favorite bands. CFH and Vulgar are classics, no doubt, but my favorite is Far Beyond Driven. Some call it boring, but I think it's crushing. That's one heavy ass record.

"Driven", to me, suffers from the same problem Meshuggah's "Nothing" gave me when I first listened to it: It's almost too heavy. It just bludgeons you into submission and doesn't let up. Now, after you've gotten used to it, it's a fucking great album, but the first few times, your ears just aren't ready for it.

Heh, I've heard it described like that before. It's defanitly the heaviest thing Pantera did. And aside from certin parts in Strength Beyond Strength and Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills, I love the lyrics. Personal shit from Phil, well done! Shedding Skin, 25 Years, ect... good stuff. and Use My Third Arm is a fucking massive song.

Agreed. Like I said, when I first heard it, it was a workout to get past track 5 or 6, now I listen to the whole thing every time I get pissed off, it seems.

The Great Southern Trendkill is their most underrated album, in my opinion. It should be ranked right alongide VDP and FBD, but for some reason, it's paired off with RTS. "Floods," "Suicide Note Pt. 2," and the title track are some of the best Pantera tunes ever. They didn't need hyper-technicality or hyper-speed to be badass.

That Mayhem interview was hysterical. Did you guys see the footage from this year's Wacken? Morbid Angel played an incredible set with Erik Rutan.

Exactly. GSTK is a awesome album. Add Suicide Note Pt.1 to that list of tracks too. It just sounds so depressing.

I'd also like to add "War Nerve" just for the lyrics. I could not help but feel like I wanted to punch somebody's face in when I heard "Fuck the world, for all it's worth. Every inch of planet Earth. Fuck myself, don't leave me out." Great stuff. Now, I think I'm gonna go listen to Pantera all night, lol.

You bet. I could go on forever on why Morbid Angel rules, but the music speaks for itself. The footage I saw with Erik was awesome, wish I could go this year.

I picked up the Arch Enemy: Live Apocalypse dvd. Its an awesome 2 disc set if you are a fan of the band. The live concert has 18 songs. Most from the Angela-era, but some old ones are thrown in for good measure. The sound and picture are great. There also some bonus live songs from other concerts on the disc. I didnt watch disc 2 yet. Its the normal videos and behind the scenes footage that most dvds have.

Off to see GWAR on Mon. They are playing on a stage thats the size of an old Caprice. It should be interesting.
