Stoner Rock

2nd album from them I have now heard and for some reason I get a Janes Addiction/Porno for Pyro's feel though it does not sound like it..... not sure why but anyhow 11 more tracks that I all like. I will be looking up their discography as well as adding to my collection!

Really could not get into this one and I must be in the minority as it is one of the top metal albums of 2020 according to Metal Edge fans...... Liked this one the least of the Draconian discography I have heard....

Folk Rock

Not a huge fan of them but I did like this album the best. Also was intrigued by the song "The Murder Mystery" ..... there is only one more in the discography I have not listened to and that would be "Squueze" but I doubt I will as Reed does not appear on it.

Graveworm - (N)Utopia (2005)

My Ratings: 72.690
Rank: 1241 (out of 1989)

Best Song: Deep Inside [77.0]

Symphonic Black Metal

My favorite track on this one is actually a short instrumental so my favorite full track would be "Outside Down". Graveworm to me sounds a little bit like Cradle of the Filth but not as extreme. Liked the 2nd half of the album better than the first.... This was the 2nd album I have heard from them and liked the 2003 album much better.....

Omen - Battle Cry (1984)

My Ratings: 73.680
Rank: 1048 (out of 1990)

Best Song: Be My Wench [77.0]

Power Metal

Power Metal is not really my forte as the vocals are more epic and front and center with the majority of it being in the tenor range. The higher toned guitar shredding solo's can also be annoying to my ear but the band Omen seems to be one of the few exceptions as I liked every track on this album. Will listen to more of them!

Amorphis - The Karelian Isthmus (1992)

My Ratings: 76.135
Rank: 574 (out of 1992)

Best Track: Black Embrace [77.0]

Death Metal

I wish I would of known about this album in 92 as I would of definitely bought it and played the crap out of it. This is some raw sounding Death Metal from Amorphis debut album. Amorphis is probably known more for a melodic heavy metal/rock but I guess in the beginning they were Death. I will definitely have to check out more of the early stuff.

Strangely while listening to the track Exile of the Sons of Iuisliu about in the middle they broke off into this guitar riff which was identical to a riff I wrote 6 years prior to this album in the garage band I was in!!!!! This probably happens all the time but this was the first time for me.....

Cobalt - Eater of Birds [2007]

My Ratings: 71.474
Rank: 1458 (out of 1996)

Best Track: Cephaloped [73.0]

Black Metal

I really got into some of the guitar riffs/Drumming which happens to be played by the same person but as typical for me with Black Metal just could not get into the vocals..... This was a more older school Black Metal sound with some experimental going on. Fans of Black Metal have this album ranked pretty high.

Frozen Soul - Crypt of Ice (2021)

My Ratings: 72.260

Best Track: Crypt of Ice [75.0]

Death Metal

First one for the year 2021 and it is an old school sounding Death band. There was not a track I really did not like but there was nothing special on this one.
