The Contenders: Page 13
A big step away from 'Ignorance', this album has no weaknesses, and still has their personal and political stances on display. This album is worth owning just for the epic track 'Crimes Against Humanity'. All killer, no filler.
A 2-disc set of rarities, b-sides, covers, plus some live stuff from their best mid 90's line-up. It's an essential purchase for hardcore fans, with the highlight being the Dead Kennedys cover 'Drug Me'. It's a bit of a hollow release, but if you love Max and co. Chase it down.
Nirvana's Dave Grohl drags Cavalera, Cronos, King Diamond, Tom G Warrior and co. From their crypts and belts out a pretty faithful bunch of new tracks from some of the best.
I think it's awful, but it comes with a bonus live dvd, and just because I think it sucks I want someone to tell me why I haven't wasted my money.
Because it's early Slayer, and Chemical Warfare kills it (king of puns).
Not as heavy as their debut, but this is a classy metal album from the Tim Owen's-led supergroup.
A double- album from Slayer's finest decade? Damn straight! One of the best live albums you can buy, along with Destruction's early live album.
Jesse Leech is back, and I bet their fans are thanking God for that, because he always was their best vocalist. Not to mention that this album is full of blast beats and riffs and melodic as Hell m/ It also contains an interesting documentary on the bonus disc.
Not their best, but even running at 75%, they destroy most progressive metal bands. Not to mention that the opening track is a killer.
Their latest is just another excellent record that steps up the aggression a tad, but they're melodies are why people love them, and this album has plenty. Pretty similar to 'Scream, Aim, Fire' in many respects.
Excellent live album spanning material up to and including 'Release From Agony'.
This was where I was losing a bit of interest in Anthrax, but it's solid.
Yes, they're technically metalcore, but they've always been as thrashy as Slayer, and this one is no different.
A double-live cd (and dvd) that captures Evergrey at the height of their powers. All of the tracks are album-perfect and at this is, quite simply, my favourite live metal album - and the dvd is even better.
Their best line-up reunite and deliver an album that is like Queensryche on steroids. Personally, I don't think it's their best, but if you're a fan then you'll purchase it for the opening track alone.
A politically-charged ep made when Sacred Reich were at their best. The re-release has bonus tracks, so fleshes it out a bit.
Many think this is their best, though I disagree. It was their last album before they split-up and reformed many years later and features their best line-up.
Do you like Mike Patton-style vocals? Do you like djent heavy riffs? Do you like melody? Do you like Mr. Bungle and Faith No More? Well listen to one of Australia's finest bands. Is it thrash? I don't even know what that means anymore, but it is definitely heavy.
Because of Rocky George, that's why. Their punk output was great, their crossover stuff was great, and their metal stuff was great, because they were great.
