5-0 out of 5 stars They Have Reached The Top
Mastodon may very well have become the pinnacle of all modern metal with their newest album "Blood Mountain." Now of course Mastodon has been ahead of the game quite some time. 2003's "Remission" was a crushing frenzy that showed the band's technical and innovative approach to song writing, while still hinting at greater things to come. And with 2004's "Leviathan," greater things did come. Not only was it a bold move made in the act of creating a concept record about Moby Dick, but Mastodon further expanded their technique, adding atmospheric and melodic elements to their sound in favor of creating something completely original and different from what they had done before. So how would they follow with their much anticipated third full length album "Blood Mountain?" As if they weren't already masterminds, this record further solidifies Mastodon as the premier innovators in today's metal world. From start to finish "Blood Mountain" is nothing short of a masterpiece, and if this is the kind of evolution and song writing we can expect Mastodon to expand upon in the future, I can only ask myself, "Where and what is next?"
5-0 out of 5 stars Mountainously brilliant
Mastodon's first album, Remission, was a gigantic shock to the system of modern heavy metal, combining ferocious grooves, head-spinning technicality, and fearsomely creative songwriting for the sort of truly singular sound a precious few bands in any genre can truly lay claim to.The followup, Leviathan, a musical interpretation of Melville's Moby Dick, packed more than enough dramatic weight to suit its title and subject matter, and saw the band branching out into more melodic and accessible territory without abandoning the complexity and pummelling heaviness that formed the base for their appeal.Now comes album number three (and number one on a major label after defecting from Relapse), Blood Mountain, marked once again by increasingly adventurous progressions in both musical and lyrical content, with a near-total abandonment of verse/chorus song structures and an epic fantasy/adventure lyrical concept running throughout.And once again, the band's skills have kept pace with their ambition, as Blood Mountain is quite possibly the most innovative, fascinating, and downright brilliant metal album of this decade, worth every second of the numerous listens it takes to fully absorb the experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, but WOW!
Someone who has listened to the other Mastodon albums: Leviathan, Remission, and Lifesblood over and over and over, like me, thinks they know what to expect from Mastodon. Catchy and steel-hard riffs, growling poetic vocals. And since they switched from Relapse to Reprise, gaining a much bigger production budget, you'd think the acoustics would sound different, maybe a little less fuzzy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another Good Album from LOG
Lamb of God have made another great album.Although I enjoy this album it doesnt hold up as strongly as "Ashes of the Wake" or "As The Palaces Burn".They have changed or so called "evolved" their sound, to me its not as heavy as their previous albums wich is understandable but it is actually darker as far as lyrics and vocals go.Randy has added some almost black metal style shrieks.Although Randy is commanding as ever I am not as fond to the vocal style on this record as I am of previous ones.
5-0 out of 5 stars Behold the Lamb of God
This is a great changeup for LOG.They have a religeous undertone for the whole album.Randy uses the deeper and growling voice for most of this album,only a few scrieks here and there.Drumming is awesome, Guitars for LOG are a little more traditional when they do soloing.The bass is hard to hear through everything else but is good as well.
5-0 out of 5 stars Metal?
I've become so bold as to tell people that there was no metal before Lamb of God. Of course that's not true, but that's how these last three albums have made me feel. I really like the black metal direction they're going in on Sacrament, and I don't even listen to black metal. Props to Blythe as usual for the dark Christian content and the anti-Christian sentiment of the lyrics, especially the preacherly call-and-response on Blackened Sun. Rise and Beating are the strongest. If you don't like this band you have no taste, or no pulse. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Now Officially the Best Metal Band in America
Mastodon's last album was an epic tale of man against whale. Leviathan was the story of Moby Dick told through heavy metal. Now they've returned with Blood Mountain, another epic tale, although this time nothing quite so literary. Lyrically, this is the story of a man's quest to get to the top of the mountain of the title. Along the way he encounters all sorts of creatures, such as a cysquatch (a one-eyed sasquatch), the birchmen, and the hunters of the sky (dragons). In the end, our hero ascends close to the peak, but does he accomplish his goal? It's tough to say, as the final song on the album, "Pendulous Skin," is an instrumental.
4-0 out of 5 stars My perspective...here it goes.
I am just going to lay it out flat..Leviathan was a HUGE success for Mastodon, one of the best metal albums I've heard in a very very long time, so it's hard for me not to compare Blood Mountain to that, but in order to get a real understanding of this album, that is the wrong thing to do! Before listening to Blood Mountain, clear your mind and ideas on what you think your going to expect, because this baby is a whole other cake. Honestly I don't think it lives up to Leviathan, that's a tough one to beat. BUT this album is totally different, when listening to this one I think wow, what were they smoking when they wrote this because man it is OUT THERE! How in the heck do they come up with this stuff.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the New Classics!!!
I had heard a lot of hype about these guys; everything from "they are the saviors of metal" to "the best metal album of the decade", but their previous work never clicked with me. Not that they were necessarily bad, or anything, I just didn't really see what all of the fuss was about. Then comes "Blood Mountain". Basically, this is a band that you really have to let sink in and pay attention to what they are doing, and when it hits you, well.....it's awesome!!! One thing these guys do so well is manage to combine seemingly disparate styles and influences into a seamless whole that plays like old-school stoner rock (Nebula, Queens of the Stone Age)fused with elements of other diverse genres. During the album, you are subjected to many musical touchstones...album opener "The Wolf is Loose" sounds like vintage Clutch. The spacey and somnambulent "Sleeping Giant" is reminiscent of Pink Floyd meets Alice in Chains. "Cappillarian Crest" recalls Rush and King Crimson,along with progressive elements of some of the more modern prog-rock bands. They are also prone to experimentation, such as the bizarre-sounding, uber-distorted vocals on "Circle of the Cysquatch" and the endlessly creative guitar effects on the album. Combined with the grinding, heavy and at times quite technical and acrobatic guitar, this album is just a thick, dense slab of meat. Flyin' the devil horns, baby!!! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The formula has gone sour
I love hatebreed, but it's now time to progress the style. This would've been a great cd if they had not already done the style 3 times in a row. The music sounds forced and generic. If this is the first hatebreed record you plan on buying, don't buy it. Anyone of the hatebreed records listed below will leave you more than happy, and will definitely be your moneys worth. As terrible as this album is, it's still worth seeing them live.
4-0 out of 5 stars Metallic Hardcore How It's Supposed To Be
If there is a hardcore band that I can appreciate these days for their musicmanship and originality, Hatebreed has my vote. This is REAL hardcore, no fashion involved here. The drumming is excellent, and Jamey Jasta sends actual messages with his lyrics. And I say "metallic", because Hatebreed may not exactly be considered a metal band, but they have the definite influence. This is a great record full of pure aggression. Recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Supreme Effort
Cant beleive this is only getting some average reviews.I think this could be one of the best hatebreed and hardcore albums i've heard.Defeatist is one of the most brutal they've put out.Other great songs include destroy everything, which will be a mosh pit classic.give wings to my triumph, divine judgement, immortal enemies, and my personal favorite spitting venom.

5-0 out of 5 stars concerning "The fall of ideals"
..well i must say one of my favorite albums from any band. uhm lets see the sound is just amazing. i like this album more than "Master Of Puppets" by Metallica. Definetly my favorite. Nice job guys. Keep em coming.METALHEAD.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest albums to date
This album might even top ATR's "This Darkened Heart" and it certainly covers more way more ground.One of my favorite albums already and its only been out a few months!BUY IT TODAY, DONT WAIT ANY LONGER!

4-0 out of 5 stars melodycore
This album is a great listen if you like melodeath at all. I love the mix here and am glad that ATR went in that direction. And great guitar solos. Labonte is a better vocalist then Brian Fair who seems is known as much for his hair, (ha), and Labonte's a pretty good song writer. The core part of metal is less here and your hear a good share of gothenburg mix in the overall production. Listen also to the guitar solos. Great riffing here in a huge guitar attack. Maybe there is a more Killswitch feel but the sound is definitely Labontes and this album stands on it's own. And great guitar solos. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but gets a bit much.
I really love Into Eternity's Dead Or Dreaming, and Buried Into Oblivion which was a great follow up with a thicker juicier production and even more great chorus's. Although IE have always been accused of overplaying and having silly chorus's because of mixing death metal with "power metal" i have always stuck by there side when it comes to listening objectively. Well on this album the music is great maybe a bit TO much, the changing of musicians as they have done can really effect a band and the outcome of there music, in this case its just not tight and doesnt seem as relaxed and well thought out as before, in other words to forced. Also the integration of the new screaming "Rob Halfordish" vocalist just does NOT fit at all with the rest of the chaos going on. The drummer who is great over does it quite a bit to where you really can't sit and just go along with any of the songs. Also the new chorus's as i said before are subpar and just sound like they were overkilled while trying to come up with new ideas. I do give a marginal 3 stars though for extreme musicianship and there is definately no lack of energy here. I just hope on the next album they sit back and relax a bit and concentrate on writing instead of overpowering the music with overplaying.

4-0 out of 5 stars More crazy singing
I think the distinct thing about this band is the singing.It's a mix of cookie monster and some crazy high-pitched harmonies.With the first few listens, the singing seems over the top at times.Once you get used to it (and stop laughing so you can hear it), these guys are really good.They don't sound like anyone else that I can think of at the moment.
5-0 out of 5 stars Burried in Oblivion played at 2x speed...
I agree in the most part with the other reviewers:bass is a little low on the recording, kickers not exactly deep enough.However, I disagree on the technical aspects.To me this is the most technical offer from Into Eternity yet.The first few listens through and the music seems a little less tight and random compared to BiO.A few more listens and you realize how technically amazing the drums and guitars are, but didn't notice it at first because everything is sooooo fast...

5-0 out of 5 stars Post-Rock Soundscapes Flood Your Mind
If you are a fan of just about any genre of heavier modern music, this album should be in your collection. I'm not sure what genre this would be easily shoehorned into; alternative rock, indie music, electronica and even elements of death metal (mostly in the guttural, throaty vocal style) are present on this amazing CD. What really sets Isis apart is the overall impression you get when listening to their music....they push and pull you with hypnotic waves of organic pulsing sound, often building to immense, crushingly heavy crescendos like a sonic roller-coaster of doom. Incredibly addictive and smart metal/trance/prog/sludge/art rock music. Interesting artwork and intelligent lyrics (apparently having to do with social theorist Focault's ideas of surveillance and control in modern society) flesh out this truly unique and compelling album. Original and highly recommended!

1-0 out of 5 stars Quick review...
This is about the band, not a particular album.Isis is like so many other groups, new and old, in that they'd be better off if they changed lead singers.Simply put, Aaron Turner has something in his throat (need I say more?).Like Slayer and others, the "band" sounds good.They have melody and are not stuck with playing one-cord, over and over.But that only goes so far when the "singer," and I use that term loosely, doesn't change his delivery and the one he sticks with can be compared to the sound of rocks being turned into gravel.Not all that appealing to my ears, but to each their own...

4-0 out of 5 stars From serenity to wherever...
As a newcomer to ISIS, this album opened up a whole new genre of music for me. The kind of music that you can listen to an a winter's night high on opiates with your head out the car window and a cigarette in your hand... not to get too sentimental or anything.

5-0 out of 5 stars CD of the millennium
Can you think of a song that has "that part"? A particular riff or vocal hook, maybe kicking the song into high gear. A part which is executed just right, so that your spine tingles, and you just think... "wow". It's totally electrifying.That's when you know that a band has (temporarily) mastered the art of songwriting.Usually these times are few and far between. Then there's Kamelot's The Black Halo. Along with various other fine qualities, almost every song on the album has at least one of those parts.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Very Strong Cd!
If you like this style of music, you'll love this cd. Power metal at it's best really describes this release.
5-0 out of 5 stars My Intro To Kamelot
And what an intro it was!I was amazed at the medieval meets Metal sound.It was just what I was looking for.I read more about them and listened to samples and discovered that The Black Halo is not the only GREAT Kamelot album.I ended up getting Epica too, and, well, it was EPIC.Kamelot knows how to tell you a story with their lyrics while providing a rich full sound to accompany them.From what I have read and heard, I believe that the 2 albums I mentioned are Kamelot's best work.Don't hesitate to buy either or both of them. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it!
I think this is a good album. Not quit as good as the last one, but still good. I wasen't to thrilled with the first song, but it took off from there! My top picks would be: Happily Ever Cadaver, Faith in the Devil, My Home Sweet Homicide, and Till Death do us Party.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what the witch doctor ordered...
Fang Bang is the best horror metal/punk available.Wednesday 13 continues to take the lead (Zombie didn't put in that much effort on his latest).After a warm up 'Morgue Than Words' & 'American Werewolves In London', the album kicks into gear and rocks as hard as AC/DC on 'My Home Sweet Homicide' & 'Faith In The Devil'. The punk that rounds the album out is above standard.And by no means does this one leave out the creepy tunes, as evidenced by 'Curse Of Me' (the most Transylvania 90210'ish) & a soon to be Halloween classic cover 'Burn The Flames'.Don't let the naysayers put you off - this is 5 star material!

4-0 out of 5 stars It's October agian and you know what that means? 3.5 stars
Well is getting closer to Halloween again and Wednesday 13 has woken from his grave to give us another dose of tricks and treats.Maybe a little more trick than treat.Having discovered Wednesday 13's work two years ago I have been a diehard fan ever since.I was extremely excited for his next release.I will say I was a bit disappointed.Part of the reason for this is that it is the follow up album to "Transylvania 90210".That album is pure horror rock greatness that "Fang Bang" had a lot to live up to.Compared to "Transylvania 90210" I'm sorry to say "Fang Bang" comes up a bit short.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just short of perfect- I would give it 4.5 stars
Suffocation returns with their best CD in 10 years and some have been calling it Pierced From Within part 2.It's time to put the word out; Suffocation is back in full swing
2-0 out of 5 stars Doug Cerrito's absence is felt. And Mike Smith needs to step it up.
I'm not talking about chops and solos, because anyone can do that. I'm talking about WRITING. The writing on this album resembles the not-terribly-inspired writing of the last album, Souls to Deny. However, I do think that a big part of my disappointment stems from Mike Smith. He was one of the most innovative death metal drummers back in the day -- way ahead of his time. I mean, Effigy of the Forgotten has virtually every death metal drum pattern you'd hear over the next 15 years, plus Mike's own signature chops. But on this album I don't hear the innovation, nor do I hear the nuances that made him stand out years ago. I feel that even if they were to write the same riffs, but have more interesting drumming underneath, then the songs would be more interesting.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but still darn good
All veteran (metal) bands who have been around for more than a decade eventually face the challenge of competing with younger groups who have recently cropped up and stolen some of the spotlight. This happened to Pantera throughout the Nineties, and Suffocation are dealing with it now. The seminal grindcore quintet formed in 1990, and like Pantera, they have so far survived every musical trend (like grunge, funk metal, and nu-metal), and they're now competing with new-millennium bands who play deathcore, modern thrash, and metalcore.

1-0 out of 5 stars wtf...
this band really effing sucks live... they had this huge, metal skull with batwings that FLAPPED.. and that alone made me watch to punch myself in the face for being there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Music
I really don't care if it's metal or not because this is good music. Avenged Sevenfold has lots of talent and that's more than I can say for most bands today. The guitarist can really play and the cd is filled with solos, which is something rare these days. The singer can really scream and sing, and he's not some high-pitched guy with tight pants like a lot of singers. The drummer is really talented and keep in mind that it's not an easy thing to play double bass. Anyway, regardless of what genre they fit into and even if they did sell out with the more listener-friendly City Of Evil (and got a lot of fans who can't stand all the screaming in this cd), they are still a very good band and I think they are a lot more talented than the trash that owns the radio today.
1-0 out of 5 stars Hey you tweens, dont be afraid that we are metal
This band is so corny, they call themselves metal, but why all the goofy names, dumb fashion sense and eyeliner that makes them look like a Malaysian street walker. Well, some of the songs sound good, they actually have a decent group, but they really lack any skill on the singer department. Back in Ozzfest, AV7 really got a big lukewarm feeling with the crowd, which many times were booed or people just skipped this band alltogether and try to salvage themselves with a Pantera cover of Walk. Well, maybe they are better suited for young girls because really, they dont have a hard edge to them, even if they went around going homicidal on us, they still would look weak. Every song on this album is just forgetful, just to much screamo junk, although he cant scream anymore. It is just better off to let them sink away at loserville with the rest of the posrecores. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Fire Up The Doomsday Machine
The highly anticipated album by Sweden's Arch Enemy has arrived and "The Doomsday Machine" will roll over you like a freight train if you are not careful. The band has become one of the more interesting providers of the form, with a very musical and technical level of Death Metal meets Thrash, along with the growling demon vocals. Led by the twin-guitar wizardry of the Amott Brothers (Christopher and Michael), the band demonstrates that you can be brutally heavy and fast, but still rip up the guitar strings like the most progressive of players. It is this Maiden meets Priest kind of ability on top of the brutality that I think separates Arch Enemy from other bands in the Metal genre. With "The Doomsday Machine", there are many peaks and valleys as you are often brought to the top of the mountain only to be thrown over the edge by their intensity. The release might come across to some as too accessible and not as destructive as "Anthems Of Rebellion" or "Wages Of Sin", but there is nothing on the recording that shows the band following a commercial edge in my opinion. The band needs no such tricks to guarantee their success and have proven a growth in their popularity here in the States by being selected to be part of Ozzfest as well as sold-out headlining shows at many popular venues along the way. The album begins with a mood setting "enter The Machine", which is an instrumental and serves as the perfect opener for "Taking Back My Soul". This track itself displays many of the skills you will enjoy from the players around the whole record. "Nemesis" is the song that gained most of the attention on the album and rightfully so since we find Angela Gossow delivering the goods like never before. She is clearly not your typical female front person and shows that not all female leads need to be demure and soft. Angela seems to be the type to kill beers with and who you want on your side when the going gets tough - a true beauty, but also a wild woman on the stage and recording. Those who have ever caught the band live already know how imposing she is as a performer. Her presence in a band like this also gives inspiration to other female singers who are less like Tarja (Nightwish) and instead hold a darker level of vocal talent. It's a welcome change to a role that risked becoming stagnant otherwise.
4-0 out of 5 stars Enter The Machine!
Doomsday Machine by Arch Enemy is an incredibly good CD. It has great, catchy lyrics with melodic instrumentals. The songs are well written and overall stunning.
5-0 out of 5 stars AMOTT BROTHERS STRIKE AGAIN
This is the best album of what I personally call the ArchEnemy 2nd Era...the female one ;-) And A.E. succeded at their 3rd attempt as it happened with "Burning Bridges", the best and 3rd of the 1st Era (when the good Johan Lijva was at vocals). I love this band...they had been in my target since Amott's departure from Carcass! I did not miss any album of this swedish metal-gods, and they always paid back...most of the times with interests! "Doomsday" is a death metal stepping stone for everyone, each single note/riff is played with such talent! I've listened to it at least for 4/5 months in row discovering everytime new particulars...that's what I do love in music! All the 11 songs are great but I'd pic out "Nemesis", "Carry The Cross", "I Am Legend/Out For Blood" and "Machtkampf", they're superb.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply incredible
I must admit, I came by "Epica" a bit by accident. I was experimenting with various power metal bands, found "Karma" acceptable, so when I found "Epica" in my nearby music store, I bought it, without reading any reviews beforehand. This turned out to be one of my best music purchase decisions ever made.
5-0 out of 5 stars One Of Kamelot's Best
On Epica, I was amazed at the medieval meets Metal sound. It was just what I was looking for.The Black Halo is equally good.Kamelot knows how to tell you a story with their lyrics while providing a rich full sound to accompany them. From what I have read and heard, I believe that the 2 albums I mentioned are Kamelot's best work. Don't hesitate to buy either or both of them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Epica Indeed...
The title of this album pretty much sums it up. This is an engaging, exhilerating album full of progressive, melodic and power metal.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful...
I never thought that I might say this about an album that has elemements of death metal, but I shall about this one.The guitar work is technically proficient enough to rival any, and they are able to integrate the acoustic with the hardest electric FAR BETTER than ANYONE I have EVER heard.Its rare to find music where all of the songs on the album are just about equally as good, but this one does just that for me.This is probably my second favorite Opeth album behind Blackwater Park.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still Life: Essential Opeth
I have Ghost Reveries, Blackwater Park, Deliverance, and My Arms, Your Hearse in addition to Still Life. Every single Opeth album I have is excellent and well worth it. Opeth is downright mesmerizing, and Mikael Akerfeldt has the best death metal growl in the business. The highly skilled band members can be brutal, but they also take you on a journey. If you are into this style of music, Opeth is VERY fulfilling. Still Life is definitely one of my favorites.

5-0 out of 5 stars A statement to Opeth's greatness
Still Life marks Opeth's most noticeable foray into exploring more progressive sounds, utilising a cleaner and more pristine production work compared to their first two albums produced by Dan Swano. Not as heavy as My Arms, Your Hearse, their first album engineered at Fredman Studios, Still Life contains more clean vocals than before, merging the band's interest in death metal, progressive rock, and Scandinavian folk, while still retaining their heavy approach to songwriting. After this disc, Opeth would move on to work with Porcupine Tree mastermind Steven Wilson, venturing into more 70's prog with thicker soundscapes and layered melodies.

Editorial Review

"Violence begins to mend what was broken."Boy, how he does it. Choosing not to borrow the pinky ring flash of the Underworld and but rather good old fashioned eye for eye justice, singer Randy Blythe croaks savagely though "Omerta."Backed by a healthy dose of lumbering menace, the song is sung as if by vengeance itself.Violence begetting violence is a constant on this album, both in music and word; in both personal trial and world politics.Lamb of God have show their 80's thrash roots on Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars To the nay-sayers --
Listen up.I was resistant to a band like Lamb of God because they are "major label."I then realized that I sounded like some whiny indie-rocker (e.g., the reviewer below, "bread8") who doesn't like anything that isn't about his feelings, how bad his dad was, how kids made fun of him but how he's so much smarter than they are, or how he and his girlfriend don't get along anymore, etc.Basically, such reviewers seek out and glorify weakness: they are egocentric, gel-haired, vintage t-shirt wearing shoe-gazers who strike an ironic pose every chance they get.Their music and tastes have nothing to do with metal of any kind.Metal is not about fashion or image; hipsters and scenesters are not invited to partake.LoG sounds a lot like bands from the eighties because metal is for FANS -- that is, NOT about image.
1-0 out of 5 stars Hi, i am a thrash metal fan.
Hi. I am a thrash metal fan. I like to hear the same exact song over and over and over and over, because thats what music is all about. If you don't make it sound the way all the other thrashers are, then that makes me fake. I can't do that now, I must play every riff at 827 miles an hour and scream EVERY lyric in every song to show that I have played 9 hours a day, but in the end it all sounds the same as everyone else anyways, but at least it's "real" metal, I'm not allowed to be creative.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best and Most Important Metal Releases of the past Decade...
American metal is alive and well...and Lamb of God is living proof of that. Can one band singlehandedly save metal from the korn's and limp bizkit's of the world? The answer is a resounding YES! Ashes of the Wake is an absolutely flawless album. From the opening notes of Laid to Rest to the end of Remorse is for the Dead, the listener finds no pause or hesitation in this record. Chris Adler is the unquestioned star of Lamb of God. His drumming is brutal and relentless. Adler uses his foot pedals to alter the tempo of each and every song on multiple occasions. This album has inspired me to get back on my kit, the only other record that has moved me so much with it's drumming was Fear Factory's Demanufacture. Anyway, this album is an absolute must own for any fan of the metal genre. Standout tracks include Hourglass, Break You and Ashes of the Wake (a sick instrumental). This album is worth every penny. Lamb of God has picked up where Metallica left off 18 years ago with ...And Justice For All to save American metal.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Follow-up To A Monster Of An Album
'Sacrament' is a much cleaner album than its predecessor 'Ashes' but lacks some intensity in return. The musicianship is ofcourse in high form (as with all Lamb Of God's albums) each member acurately plays there parts. But there are differences with 'Sacrament' new avenues to explore. The first being the broader dynamics in Randy's vocals. He seems to scream clearer with better pronunciation. And though it seems to work,at the same time it almost doesn't. I still enjoy the experimentation. The music on the other hand is even more of a change to my ears. Though there are tracks that are truly amazing 'Again We Rise', 'Pathetic',
3-0 out of 5 stars Better than most things out there
Like most die hard fans I guess I just end up liking the previous albums bands make over their newer ones most of the time. As you can witness on the dvd this album had a lot of last minute in the studio ideas especially on Randy's part. It serves as a docu closely resembling metallicas "Moster" dvd. This band is not always hanging and jammin together when it comes to the music. This cd sounds very influenced by Slipknot, Testament and Pantera. Was hoping for some more chunk in the music ala Meshuggah like the boys used to do. I think Mastodon has the right idea when it comes to being the NWOAM champs.

5-0 out of 5 stars One Of The BEst Metal Albums Of2006, and possibly EVER!!!
Let me just start by saying that this is one skull-crushing album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deicide's Best Album In Years
With a brand new line up, Florida's mighty death metal gods Deicide have rerisen from the ashes and have released one of the best death metal albums of 2006, and more importantly their best album in years entitled "Stench Of Redemption"(the first Deicide album without the Hoffman brothers), and believe me dude, this album has redemption written all over it. Gone are the Hoffman brothers Brian and Eric, who were a huge problem for the band, of course being responsible for all of the repeative garbage on albums such as "Serpents of the Light", "Insineratehymn", and "In Torment In Hell", and in are Jack Owen (ex Cannibal Corpse) and Ralph Santolla (Iced Earth, ex Death) I gotta say vocalist/bassist Glen Benton sure made the right decision by kicking the Hoffmans out and bringing in Jack and Ralph. Together Jack and Ralph bring a new demension of guitar hero shredding to Deicide. The riffs are jaw dropping and perfectly blended with brutality and melody as well, the solos are very long, epic, virtuoistic, and breathtaking, and the leads are just fast, thrashy, and speaker sharding throughout. Drummer Steve Asheim also does his best drumming in years as well. Plenty of vicious skull smashing blast beats and bone rattling double bass kicks. And of course topping all of that are the awesome bone chilling death vocals of the one and only Glen Benton, and this album showcases his best and I DO mean best vocal performance in years. The opening title cut "Stench Of Redemption" absolutely crushes you like a bug with some crushing blast beats, fast shredding riffs, and some long tasty solos that will make your jaw drop and eyes pop in sheer delight. The second track "Death To Jesus" is another crushing track with more great solos as well. Track three "Desecration" is more slower and mid tempo but it still pounds the listener down to the ground. Other tracks such as "Crucified for the Innocence", and "Walk With The Devil In Dreams You Behold" keep the sheer brutalitly coming. Track number six "Homage For Satan" of course being the first single off the album is very reminiscent of Slayer. This song really crushes your senses throughout. The guitar riffs are very fast and thrashy, the drums are just lightning fast throughout, and the solos from Jack and Ralph are epic and very melodic as well. There's also a very dark and heavy cover of Deep Purple's "Black Night" included, and it's very good too. So anyways, if you're looking for one of the best, and I DO mean one of the best death metal albums of 2006, well you have come to the right place with Deicide's "Stench of Redemption", and like I said before this album had redemption written all over it Favorite songs: ALL OF THEM OF COURSE. Do yourself a favor, go out and buy this album now!!
4-0 out of 5 stars Among Deicide's all time best
Quite a few of 2006's highly anticipated metal releases have been somewhat disappointing. But most metalheads know that an extreme music album may take time to fully absorb, so I never gave up listening to of those C.D.'s. And even though some of them still aren't completely up to my expectations, several of them have proven to be a lot better than I initially thought. This was the case with this year's Cannibal Corpse, Zyklon and Napalm Death albums, but my opinion has most notably changed about Deicide's new one.
4-0 out of 5 stars Drop 2 and get the new
With the departure of the original guitarists, Decide creates one of their best albums to date.There is a real different feel to the album, even thought eh listener can be sure deicide is cutting away when its turned up.The solos and bridges are very well blended.There was great work on this album.Its intensity can't be reached without going back to the first few albums. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars You'll choke on your lies, it's my only promise
When I first heard All Shall Perish's Hate.Malice.Revenge I would've guaranteed they would never top that release or even come close to it again. Well, after hearing their new release, The Price Of Existence, it's quite clear that I was the farthest thing from being right. Sure it's different, but they've definitely grown and evolved for the better.
5-0 out of 5 stars Makes me like breakdowns again.
If I were to deconstruct in terms of genre the music played by All Shall Perish, I would find myself talking about metalcore, i.e. the blending of hardcore and metal.In the former department we have some of the heaviest breakdowns I've heard, ones quite worthy of the best hardcore dancing and circle pitting.Regarding the latter we have some excellent death metal played with melody and superb competence.With all this said, it would nevertheless be a lie to call All Shall Perish metalcore.They are able to walk the line between these two genres without falling into the category that best describes, say, Unearth, due to a level of aggression and brutality that breaks the mold.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This CD destroys. All Shall Perish have created an amazingly brutal album. This is breakdown driven death metal, the breakdowns are brutal both guitarists do an amazing job. The singer uses a wide range of vocals from hardcore barks, deathmetal screams and even a few black metal shrieks and ofcourse some metal-core style screams.

5-0 out of 5 stars If anything shows how incredibly influential they've been
My initial thoughts when "Sink Fast Let Go" played for about 40 seconds was "Wait, Napalm Death is covering Pig Destroyer now...no, wait, now they're covering Agoraphobic Nosebleed...wait, no Akercocke..."
5-0 out of 5 stars Coming Back HARD, Most Inspired Effort Since Fear, Emptiness, Despair
Smear Campaign is Napalm Death's best record in a decade. I'm not saying that their records since 1996 have been subpar, far from it. But, Smear Campaign is their most focused arsenal of grindcore in a long time. Barney is in top form and sounds as if he's going to jump through your speakers and throttle you. You can tell that this is the subject matter (religion) that Greenway has wanted to tackle in-depth for a long time. Puritanical Punishment Beating may be the best song that Napalm Death has ever recorded. That's a bold statement but everything clicks on this showcase track from a nasty array of riffs to signiture time changes and raging vox. As usual, Shane Embury holds the madness together with his stellar bass work and Danny Herrera continues to amaze with his super human blast beats. Mitch Harris seems to work better alone because since the departure and untimely death of Jesse Pintado, Harris seems to have stepped up his playing and carried Napalm on his shoulders. Anyway, this is a must have for ND fans and grindcore fans in general...an inspired effort.
4-0 out of 5 stars Prepare to be devastated (again)
It's always cool when a band's newest album is among their best, but it's downright awesome when a band that's over two centuries old is still producing some of its finest work. There's no doubt that on "Smear Campaign," Napalm Death's thirteenth full-length studio effort since forming in 1982, they sound as hungry, angry, committed, vitalized, and inspired as ever. Yes, there are a few experimental aspects here, but aside from the restrained opening track, "Weitschmerz," which features a brief use of acoustic guitars and organ-like keyboards, and melodic female vocals (contributed by The Gathering's Anneke van Giersbergen) on "In Deference," this disc is every bit as brutal and extreme as anything these seminal grindcore gods have ever recorded (including last year's "The Code Is Red...Long Live The Code").

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the two acoustic songs alone....
Seriously, the two acoustic songs on the second disc of the limited release of "Blackwater Park", are a MUST HAVE! Mikael really shines on both guitar and vocals on "Still day beneath the sun" and "Patterns in the Ivy II". Songs that should have been on the original "Blackwater Park" release.
5-0 out of 5 stars My first Opeth album...
Caused me to buy three others, despite my hesitance to buy.I was introduced by a friend online about this time last year just after I got out of the shower in my dorm room.I remember him saying that he was checking out Opeth online and wanted to know what I thought.At first, when I heard it, I thought, "are you kidding me, music with growling?"I'm not really into death metal, Pantera was the heaviest stuff I'd normally listen to and usually only when I was pissed off.I'm not all that into heavy stuff.I just let it keep playing though and layed down on my bed in the sweet spot in between my speakers, where I do most of my intent listening, I became mesmerized enough that by the end of the first song, I downloaded the whole thing.By Harvest I was in a such a trance like state that I could have easily mistaken myself for being aleep.I was in such sheer bliss that I just let the sound take me where It wanted to.I had never experienced something like this from music before.It invoked some of the most beautiful feelings I had felt in a while, I was not on anything either.I love losing myself in music, I have only experienced this from classical music, which I love to listen to to become relaxed.Blackwater Park can relax me to the point where other, softer music fails to, perhaps because the complex melody and immaculate production of this album engages my mindat the deepest possible level.Open your mind to this stuff no matter which side of it you come down on, be it too heavy or too soft, and you will not be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Opeth Album!
I have Ghost Reveries, Still Life, Deliverance, and My Arms, Your Hearse in addition to Blackwater Park. Every single Opeth album I have is excellent and well worth it. Opeth is downright mesmerizing, and Mikael Akerfeldt has the best death metal growl in the business. The highly skilled band members can be brutal, but they also take you on a journey.
