One of the fans who had the chance to attend the global premiere
show of “13” said it all: “Thank you for reminding the world what heavy
music sounds like”.
Recommended song: Damaged Soul
The only thing that’s more metal than the very genesis of the genre
is fucken speed metal, the 80s way. Played by a Norwegian black metal
act in the 21st century, that is.
Recommended song: Valkyrie
What Satyricon themselves consider to be the sum of their whole career. They are right about that.
Recommended song: Phoenix
As I’ve stated before, this is all raw, melodic and groovy. A killer.
Recommended song: Unfit for Human Consumption
Never listened to any Watain’s before. That’s probably because I’m a
bit too much into Norwegian stuff. Norwegian’s good. Anyway, I’ve been
missing a lot.
Recommended song: The Child Must Die — and I fucken agree.
Not as freaking awesome as its predecessor. Still pretty amazing.
Suffocation: Pinnacle of bedlam
Suffocation is quality guarantee. Guaranteed.
Helloween: Straight out of hell
A lesson on how to play power metal and not suck pumpkin ass while trying.
Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals: Walk through exits only
Every-fucken-body hated this, it appears. I didn’t. A ball-statement if you ask me.
Burzum: Sol austan, mani vestan
While I did enjoy Varg’s previous ambient ventures — namely “Dauði Baldrs” and “Hliðskjálf”, this one is telling me nothing. NOTHING.
Megadeth: Super collider
Just kidding. We all know Mustaine is nothing but full of shit these days. No real disappointment.
The Dillinger Escape Plan: One of us is the killer
What the HELL? Either these guys already stopped trying or they’re trying too hard. We’ve lost them forever.
