The Contenders: Page 10
Canada's finest in a crushing return to form.
Yes, they are excellent. No doubt.
Someone must be put here "Eyes of Horror" in the first 10 places, Possessed is the birth of death metal!
Death? Thrash? Both? Either way, if 'Seven Churches' is here, then so should this one.
Anyone else like this one? It's their most coherent yet, and Heafy delivers a masterful vocal performance, along with the rest of the band.V 1 Comment
Crank up 'Davy Jones' and see how good this album is. Yeah, you could throw it into the cheap Metalcore basket if you want, but there's a lot more to this release than that.
All of this bands releases are fast, groovy, mathematic, and incredibly well-executed. I hope it stays up here, because these guys albums are incredible.
A few production issues aside, this is Euro-thrash at its brilliant best. 'The Challenge', 'In the Trash', 'At War with Science' are immense.
John Bush on vocals re-ignited the fire with these guys, but Dan Spitz wanted out and barely contributed anything. They have never been the same since 'Among The Living' and Exodus deserve their place now. Sad but True!
Underrated Anthrax beast, and probably their best until 'Worship Music' arrived 15-years later.
Halford goes borderline thrash, but with a lot of melody as well. Top musicianship, and if you like Halford's vocals, you'll love this one.
Ah, City. Thanks for the correction. I own too much stuff. Cheers!
Their best, by far.
Rare German thrash. Good, too.
This album is very evocative and desolate with its interludes between its brutal tracks. These interludes create the atmosphere as judged by the title of the album, and if that was the intention, they nailed it. It's heavy, no question, but it's a haunting journey too. Even if you're not into Killswitch Engage, chech this one out. There is a bonus dvd version which contains the whole album told in well-constructed home videos. Probably one of the best metal albums I own.
Thanks for including this one. I can't think for the life of me why a metal-head wouldn't love it.
Yes, Adam D. And Jesse Leech are involved, and yes it's probably in the Metalcore camp, but genres aside, this is an absolute masterwork of riffs, incredible cleans and growls, and every song is a marvel. I'd understand if it got removed, but every metal fan should own it.
One of my favorites records of power metal; you can't miss this Lethal tendencies still makes echo in may brain; but this is not thrash!
'D.I.E, death in effect'. I don't know if this album's as good as I remember, but I remember it be good way back when...
Iced Earth's best, with their best line-up. 'Wolf' is not human, 'Damien' is a beast, and 'Ghost of Freedom' is a great ballad.
Bullet For My Valentine best album. From start to finish, it delivers riff after riff, explosive solo after explosive solo, great melodies and vocals. Will this band ever put out a crap release? I hope not.
My favourite Bullet album. They nailed it on this release, though all their albums are great.
Probably their 2nd best, behind 'Fall of Ideals'. The Metalcore crowd will try to claim them as their own, but they cover all bases with ease, and style, and class, and brutality. Their just a modern metal band that have a number of influences. It just so happens that their influences are mostly incredible, and they do it in their sleep. Top-shelf musicians, and they do whatever they want.
Good to see these killers back in action. It's a fine comeback release and is good to see, if you're like me and think the 80's were the pinnacle of thrash. All this backlash against bands who are inspired by this stuff should welcome it with open arms.
More nature second release than their debut, but it's not as frenetic, so is slightly the lesser for it. Still great quality release.
Australia's answer to the Bay Area movement, and they easily match the second-tier of bands with this release. Hetfield-esque vocals, big drum fills, and excellent songwriting skills. It beats their impressive debut hands down, with classics like 'I Am Immortal', 'Voyage of the Disturbed' etc. Good luck finding it though. A collectors dream.
