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!
Diamond Head - Lightning to the Nations 2020 
My Ratings: 79.746
Rank: 238 (out of 1976)
Best Song: No Remorse [90.0]
40 years later....... Same tracks with 4 added cover songs... Who would think that a band that Metallica often covered would turn the corner and do the same with No Remorse.... lol, Solid metal album!!!!
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....
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground (1969)
My Ratings: 72.101
Best Song: What Goes On [77.0]
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.
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.....
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!

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.....
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.
