Athena - A New Religion?
Definitely the best album involving Fabio. One of the few DT clone discs I still listen to.
Black Sabbath - Born Again
It hasn't aged well, IMO, but "Zero The Hero" is still a great tune.
Candlemass - Chapter VI
Not a bad one. I really dig Vikstrom's voice, and he's a super-nice guy, to boot.
Celtic Frost - Cold Lake
You really get off on listening to things I tossed out my window while driving, don't you? ;) To be fair, there's a couple of decent pieces here, but, overall, ugh.
Faith No More - Angel Dust
Never gets old.
Fates Warning - Theories of Flight
First one I found enjoyable in a long time - well, that didn't have Arch on it. ;)
Queensrÿche - Condition Hüman
Queensrÿche - The Verdict
I do rather like this.

My list:

The Lord Weird Slough Feg - "Traveller" and "Down Among the Deadmen":

Still not everyone's cup of tea, but I like 'em, especially these two records. Still don't like Hammers of Misfortune, though that makes no sense. ;)

Rotting Christ - "The Heretics":

I haven't checked out anything of theirs since at leas the mid-2000s, and, much to my surprise, I kinda like this. Has some of that early Septic Flesh vibe.

Lilac - "Chain of Thorns":

Late to the party. Solid hard rock album - what hair metal should have evolved into.

Lucifer - "II":

I'm still not sure how I feel about this band. I enjoyed listening to this, especially the first couple of songs, but it does get samey and it doesn't leap at me.

Ashes of Ares - "Well of Souls":

Yeah, well, better than the first one, I think.

Living Sacrifice - "Ghost Thief":

Not bad. The 'coreish vox get on my nerves after a while, but the riffing is pretty solid.

Riot - "Rock City", "Narita", "Fire Down Under":

Yeah, it's easy to forget how good these records were. This band should have been huge in the '80s.

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