This goes down as the classic liked side 1 did not like side 2 for me..... 4th Talking Heads album and I actually liked this one the best a bit better than Remain in Light.

Finnr's Cane - Wanderlust (2010)

My Ratings: 74.855
Rank: 835 (out of 2044)

Best Song: The Lost Traveller [76.0]

Atmospheric Black Metal/Ambient Doom

Wanderlust is the album to help you sleep. The tracks all basically sound similar but there is a trance like vibe from them. No bass what soever but a few hints of a Cello and Keyboards break up the monotony. I've now heard all 3 and this one is in the middle of the pack.

Green Druid - Ashen Blood (2018)

My Ratings: 78.213
Rank: 345 (out of 2045)

Best Song: Rebirth [81.6]

Doom Metal

Heavy slow riffs with an average track time of 10 minutes Green Druid really delivers the Doom. Debut album that is very solid if I did have a complaint though it would be the vocals being set deep into the mix which makes it hard to hear.... but maybe that was the point. Anyhow it was not as good as their newer album it will be added to my playlist....

Savatage - Edge of Thorns (1993)

My Ratings: 76.976
Rank: 464 (out of 2051)

Best Song: He Carves His Stone [85.0]

Progressive Metal

Sad times for Savatage as they lost the founding member and the great guitarist Criss Oliva to a car crash and his brother vocalist Jon Oliva (Trans Siberian Orchestra) had left the band prior to this album. Zak Stevens took over for Vocalist. The album was actually quite good......

Solitude Aeturnus - Adagio (1998)

My Ratings: 78.804
Rank: 295 (out of 2055)

Best Song: Heaven and Hell [85.0]

Epic Doom Metal

I have heard this album being described as "Heavy" but I'm thinking they are referring to the lyrical meanings of the songs and not the "sound" as for me this was one of their least Heavy sounding albums. This one completes my studio full albums of Solitude Aeturnus as unfortunately they are no longer together but this one ranks at #2. Well, there is still a Demo and an EP I can explore in the near future.....

Candlemass - Dactylis Glomerata (1998)

My Ratings: 78.046
Rank: 366 (out of 2060)

Best Song: Apathy [83.0]

Psychedelic Doom Metal

Well, this completes the Candlemass discography and chose this one to do last for the reason that this is not really Candlemass. This album is actually by the band Abstrakt Algebra. With most of the album done the record company refused to release it unless the former Candlemass bass player agreed to allow them to put it under the Candlemass name. After all, that would sell more records...... Anyhow this album does very well though many diehard Candlemass fans will have nothing to do with it.
