I'm not familiar with the Trivial Act, but I'll certainly sign off on the rest! A fine list, sir!
They were the third best band on A Gathering of 8 Norwegian Prog Metal Bands. Like Manitou, they're excellent keys-less prog metal with a unique sound. The cover art is by Asgeir, and it's actually pretty cool. Better than Flow, at least :)
Sadus--Swallowed in Black
I keep meaning to grab this from the shelves! I got this when it came out, and it didn't quite click at the time (too much basketball beat) but I've come around. No one sounded quite like Sadus. Seeing Steve D at Testament depressed the fuck out of me and really made me want to remember when he did interesting things.
Frederick Thordendal's Special Defects--Sol Niger Within
Remember when he was recording a follow-up? I wonder what happened to that? Do you have the original version, or the Relapse one? I prefer the Relapse one, but maybe I'm just a screaming-solo-averse philistine.
Sieges Even--Sophisticated
So good! Did you ever check out 7 for 4? Not quite as fun as the Zenk SE albums, but still a lot of fun if you enjoy his playing.
