Sodom - Decision Day. Finally picked up the extra fancy Japanese version with the bonus track and the live DVD I'll probably never watch.
I bet that DVD is pretty fun as long as the video quality is good enough.
Yeah, I'm sure. I just don't generally budget time for music DVDs, unless the band is Magma, and then... THERE'S ALWAYS TIME.
Cynic - Uroboric Forms.
Also, it would have been nice had they printed a fucking tracklist somewhere. Fuckers.
I have a comment about this coming on my weekly list (which I left at home so it won't be until this evening) but the tracks are listed on a sticker that's on the OUTSIDE of the CD shrinkwrap, WTF. I threw mine out before I realized that's where it was.
Soilwork - A Predator's Portrait. Totally classic. No one has made a better melodic death metal album that's better than this since, including Soilwork, who never even made a really good album again. This album launched a thousand shitty bands, but it's so good I can't hold its pernicious influence against it. Even Speed's weak clean vocals work, because the riffing is so motherfucking epic.
I'm probably going to listen to this because of the way you talk about it, but I still think it's kinda weird that you like any Soilwork album.
I love the first three to death. I got on on the ground floor - Listenable sent me a promo of the first one back when I did the zine. It was one of those out-of-the-blue packages, too, as I never solicited the label for promos, and they didn't distribute in the US. I was happy to get it, though! I forget what else was in that package, but there was something else kinda cool. Just not as good as Steelbath Suicide. I did the first Soilwork interview for Metal Maniacs, too. I was so super-bummed by that fourth album, though. The first three songs are great, so for a little bit, I thought everything was fine, but that album got lame fast after the third track.
