Atramentus - Stygian (2020)

My Ratings: 73.497
Rank: 1047 (out of 1915)

Best Song: Stygian III: Perennial Voyage [75.8]

Funeral Doom Metal

The best track on this album is over 26 minutes long.... there is a bunch of lyrics for this album but are they actually saying them? I don't think so.... I believe it is a story and the droning funeral doom goes with it.... that is how I took it.

Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run (1975)

My Ratings: 76.655
Rank: 485 (out of 1914)

Best Song: Born to Run [84.0]

Heartland Rock

Not a fan of Bruce but there are a couple albums I like and this was one of them..... probably my 2nd favorite.
Interesting take as this is one of the essential classic rock albums of all time. For fans of heartland rock this is the "album" without a single track being a clunker. This also follows the classic 4 corners album format with an upbeat radio friendly hit opening up sides 1 & 2 and the epic like classic rock faves close out each side. Also one of the most parodied album covers of all time>

Power Metal

First time listening to this band.... this goes down as another decent side one but did not like side two..... Some of the tracks had a touch of death metal in them which at times did not go with it.....

My Ratings: 71.055
Rank: 1459 (out of 1922)

Best Song: Don't Be Late [76.0]

Progressive/New Wave Rock

Wasn't sure what to expect here..... sounded like a combination of a poor Rush and Cars sound. The first two tracks were promising but then it turned into an 80's sound muffle. Nothing really terrible though but not enough for me to look for other albums by them.....

Void of Silence - The Grave of Civilization (2010)

My Ratings: 73.260
Rank: 1100 (out of 1926)

Best Song: Apt Epitaph [75.0]

Funeral Doom Metal

Funeral Doom needs to be atmospheric but not necessarily enjoyable. One needs to feel the dread, the agony, the suffering, the hopelessness and be emotionally drained and I did not feel any of this on this album. To me, it just sounded like a guy singing sad songs.... this one was not one of my favorites from this band....

Oh god, I got a serious headache listening to this noise. The title track was the only song I liked on this one and I should of turned it off but I suffered through it. It was listed as Industrial but it sounded like noise rock..... where's the aspirin?
