PostSubject: Lists...everyone likes lists...   Sun Jan 02, 2011 3:00 pm

I'm a bit of a list maker, I find it helps organize my thoughts and it give me something to reference and refer people to later on. I've made these lists over the last year to give people an idea of some of the stuff that I feel is at the top of the heap in their respective genres. They don't take into things like which albums are thought of as being essential by the rest of the community, they're entirely based on my taste and opinion.

I'm gonna ask...where's Massacra on that death metal/top 100 list? I know you specified your favorites, but you can't deny that Final Holocaust is a treasure.

It's certainly a good album, but I just couldn't find a place for it over some of the other stuff. There's lots of stuff I'd like to have included, but ended up cutting due to list size restrictions.

I see that we have similar taste in black metal... caustic and militant! I would, however, find much higher positions for the likes of Mayhem, Emperor, Burzum, Immortal, etc...


Your death metal list, on the other hand, is pretty confusing... four of the albums in the top five belong somewhere in the fifteen-twenty-five range... Abominations of Desolation over Altars or Blessed? Once Upon the Cross over Legion or the Self-titled? Plenty of odd choices scattered throughout, as well...

As for the thrash list... no Destruction?? What the hell's wrong with you... Very Happy

Anyway, I love lists too, so maybe I will submit a few over the next week or so...

I actually hate lists, but i do read them on Rateyourmusic if they have descriptions.

I agree lack of Destruction isn't right at all. 80's material is great.

I can't stand most of the 2nd wave Norwegian bands, save for Mayhem and Darkthrone. Immortal, Burzum, Emperor, Satyricon, Gorgoroth, etc. all blow in my opinion. There are a few others that I like (Thorns, Ved Buens Ende, Raven, ...) , but aren't really top 50 worthy.

Abominations has a feel and sound that NONE of the other Morbid Angel albums have been able to top. The track listing is similar to Altars, but all the tracks have a much rawer feel that I enjoy more than Altars. Plus Mike Browning's vocals are much better than David Vincent in my opinion.

Once Upon the Cross gets my pick because on top of being a wonderful album, it was the first death metal album I ever bought, and therefore the most memorable to me.

Destruction is my least favorite of the 3 major German thrash bands. Sodom was really the only one that really floored me, though I don't dislike early Kreator either.

Like I said, I'm wasn't interested in putting together lists of "essentials", just my favorites.
I also predate the internet hype on a lot of bands, so the list reflects that.

Even the demos and debut albums by Emperor and Gorgoroth? Great stuff.

Other than Altars Of Madness i don't rate Morbid Angel much at all really.

I fucking hate lists... especially when I've heard of maybe 8-9 of the top 25 death metal albums.

^ That's kind of how R'lyeh rolls. He posts on another forum I go to and usually at least half of what he mentions I'm clueless about. For his lists, I usually check MA/Youtube for bands that sound/look interesting...which I wind up doing pretty frequently. Neutral But if you have the time and patience, look up some of the stuff he talks about, it's usually worthwhile.

^ Just want to point out the fact that your Facebook video links got me into that number one album of yours. Smile
Kudos for the high regards to The Karelian Isthmus, Final Holocaust, and Unquestionable Presence. Shred

Why does everyone always discount EPs and demos? A great recording is a great recording.

Of course... but it is better to separate the two since it is harder to judge between a record of twenty minutes and one of forty minutes; for example, a lot of albums would be judged better if we only judged them based off of their best four tracks.

Either way, there's some nice picks on there. I'm personally not the biggest fan of Swedish death metal (though some of it is great...) which is why bands like Dismember and Necrophobic didn't make it onto my list.

It's nice to see someone else who regards Vader highly...though you seem to like them more than I do. Their early works are excellent, yet people hate on Vader for "sounding the same".

Solid list as always Mr X. Although there about 8 albums listed i'm yet to hear. Interesting to see Ritual Of Infinity rated so highly. Theres a few bands i would change your choice of album with, but yeah that happens. Good to see Stargazer, Cemetery Urn, and Carcass there.

Interesting death and black metal lists. Can't say that I agree with much of either, but it's always interesting to see how other people would rank stuff.
