My Ratings: 75.627
Rank: 426 (out of 1221)

Best Song: Black Lake Nišstång [78.6]

Atmopheric Black Metal

4th of the 5 Agalloch albums, I've heard the first 4 and I would put this one at 3rd. The track I liked the best comes in at over 17 minutes long.

What were your rankings for the other Agalloch albums? Ashes Against the Grain is a masterpiece IMO.

Nachtmystium - Addicts: Black Meddle Part II (2010)

My Ratings: 72.557
Rank: 732 (out of 1225)

Best Song: Every Last Drop [80.0]

Dark Ambient / Black Metal

Did not like the front half of this album but glad I stuck with it as the back half was solid. This one genre wise was all over the place. I even thought I heard some synth-pop hearing a bit of Killing Joke influence and sure enough upon reading about this album they did mention Killing Joke as an influence. I have to say that I liked Part 1 better than Part 2 but Part 2 has the best song on it.

My Ratings: 75.170
Rank: 463 (out of 1226)

Best Song: Midnight [80.6]

Doom Metal

This one came out last week and I believe their debut album. This is the first Doom Metal band I've heard with a female lead vocalist. It starts out with a great sounding track but ends with one I did not care for that lasts 15 minutes.

Jonathan Davis - Black Labyrinth (2018)

My Ratings: 69.776
Rank: 971 (out of 1227)

Best Song: Everyone [77.0]

Alternative Metal

Another one that came out last week this is the debut solo album from the front man of Korn. Started off strong with 4 decent tracks but fell off from there. Only liked 6 of the 13 tracks. Much softer than Korn and more radio friendly.

Best Song: Biomec: Vals No. 666 [74.0]

Debut album by these guys and there are touches of technical death as well which I am not a huge fan of. I would of liked it better without the technical stuff.. overall, I did not care for this album.

Best Song: Don't You Dare [86.0]

Avante-Garde Metal

This one came out today and it is the 2nd album which infuses Black Metal with Slave Spirituals. Opens up with 5 great tracks and overall I liked much better than their debut album. I will be adding this one to my collection and it won't take long before it will be a great album!

Tremonti - A Dying Machine (2018)

My Ratings: 69.154
Rank: 1013 (out of 1234)

Best Song: A Dying Machine [77.0]

Alternative Metal

I was attracted to this one as it was listed as a Thrash/Speed Metal band.... well, other than some Thrash Riffs here and there this was far from Thrash/Speed Metal. What I found was the Creed guitar player in his own band doing vocals. The guitars and drums were not the problem with me but the vocals and lyrics got a bit annoying to the point that I could not stand the last 8 tracks.... well, I take that back, I did like the last track but it was instrumental.... the front side though was pretty good.

From the Vault: Slots 71 thru 75 from my CD changer.....

Some of these CD's it has been a long time since I have heard them from start to finish. Most hold up over the years, some do not.....

__________________________________________________ _____-

--- Drowning Pool - Sinner : 84.619 : #69 Saw them live early on about month before the lead singer dies. One heck of a show and hold on for your life. I have yet to listen to another Drowning Pool album with the new singer..... maybe one day.

--- Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream : 81.161 : #153 This is the only one I like form this group. I still believe that Billy Corgan had something to do with Kurt Cobain's death.

--- Marilyn Manson - Portrait of an American Family : 80.376 : #179 2nd favorite MM studio album.

--- Slayer - Hell Awaits : 85.299 : #63 3rd favorite Slayer album

--- Led Zeppelin - III : 85.400 : #62 4th favorite Zeppelin album

This is one of those that should of been only 10 tracks instead of 14. There were 4 tracks in a row near the end that I did not like. This is my first listening to Stone Sour but will check out their debut album which is suppose to be their best.

Grateful Dead - Live/Dead (1969)

My Ratings: 70.094
Rank: not a studio album

Best Song: St. Stephen [78.6]

Psychedelic Rock

The overall rating on this one is skewed by track 6 called Feedback, it was basically unbearable for me. I really liked the first two tracks "Dark Star" and my favorite on the album "St. Stephen". The next 3 were alright but really couldn't get into that much and then came basically the last track "Feedback" which was basically 8 minutes of just that, feedback from the guitars that unless you are there feeling the moment you are not going to get anything out of that.... take that track away and the rating is up near 73.....

===========================================

Well it is almost Friday and that means new metal albums coming out. Looking forward to the new one from Orange Goblin as well as Stoner Metal band ASG. Also a bit curious of the new Lizzy Borden album... haven't heard from them in over 30 years.... but we are still a week away from the new Nine Inch Nails.

This one came out today and it sounded pretty good. More of a Heavy Metal feel until the 4th track "Swords of Fire" came in at a more typical Orange Goblin Doom/Stoner metal. Liked everything on this one!

Rank: 321 (out of 1243)

Best Song: Darkness of Glass [78.6]

Death Metal

Continuing with new albums this week wow, what a surprise here. This one sounds like some old school Death Metal!!!! Never heard of this band and apparently not many do as for the first time ever I was the first "view" of an album. This is their 3rd studio album so I will be doing some back tracking.....

[I tried the new Lizzy Borden album but stopped on the 2nd track, could not get into it]

Yeah, feedback is a listen once type track and that's it. That section moved into what is now called Space and is more developed but still very unstructured. Thought you would like Death Don't Have No Mercy, classic blues structure plus a great Garcia solo.
