Might still be my #1. I disagree that it's just another day at the office for Kreator. IMO it's one of their strongest efforts to date.
Agreed - the added melody really makes this one shine.
5: Sikth - Future in whose Eyes? (UK / Djenty progressive metal)
I was almost anxious before I heard this album, as Death of a Dead Day is one of the most stylesetting and innovative albums ever. I feared they would fall flat, but fortunately they delivered a great album that's almost as good, and stays true to their unique style.
I like it ok, but it seems more like a Sikth clone than the actual band at this point. They've lost a lot of their edge, IMO.
Yeah, Priphery is doing a better job of being Sikth than Sikth is - and I don't like the new Periphery, either. lol

Overkill - The Grinding Wheel
I must be one of the few that really enjoyed this one, although I admit my first listen didn't go well due to the inane lyrics. You kind of have to ignore the lyrics with Overkill at this point, I guess.
Lyrics are terrible, I agree, but there's some much cooler tunes on this one than the previous couple. Not "Ironbound", but certainly a good listen - and I even dig the Lizzy cover!

Division - Now with more previous members!We're on Facebook, too.
