1349 - Revelations of the Black Flame (2009)

My Ratings: 73.290
Rank: 637 (out of 1197)

Best Song: Uncreation [77.6]

Avante-Garde Black Metal

1349 is a Black Metal band that completely changed it up for this one. The Avante-Garde or Ambiance sound really turned off their traditional Black Metal fans so much so that they changed back for the follow up album. Well, I had never heard of them so I decided to start them off with this one so I would not get sucked up into the change. It wasn't that bad and I liked most of it. The 3 instrumentals though really did not do much for me and I did not like the last track but there was definitely stuff here I liked. They even did a cover of Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun". I am now curious what there more traditional stuff sounds like.

The Guess Who - Canned Wheat (1969)

My Ratings: 68.668
Rank: 1015 (out of 1198)

Best Song: Undun [79.0]

Rock

The first 4 tracks were decent starting with the original version of "No Time" and ending with the best track on the album "Undun" but then it just really dropped off. I just could not get into the last 5 tracks and saw no need for a 6 minute drum solo on a studio album. I really liked the albums that sandwiched this one but overall I did not like it.

Rank: 979 (out of 1199)

Best Song: The Czar [76.6]

Prog Metal

This was my 3rd attempt at listening to a Mastodon album and I am going to have to admit that I do not like them. I think it is the vocals, especially during the chorus that I just don't like. The music is fine.

My Ratings: 72.505
Rank: 723 (out of 1201)

Best Song: Creative Spirit [74.0]

Black Metal

Debut and only album by the defunct Reign In Blood band. Very raw sounding and for me that was a plus. I liked it but nothing great. I actually started out listening to the 2009 album by My Dying Bride and could not make it pass the 2nd track... oh, what happened to them.

Bad Wolves - Disobey (2018)

My Ratings: 63.407
Rank: 1176 (out of 1207)

Best Song: Zombie (Cover) [76.0]

Heavy Metal

The Supergroup Bad Wolves debut album. I should of turned it off, usually I do when I do not like it but something kept me going hoping that it would get better but instead it got worse. This is the type of metal that got me not listening to the newer stuff and sent me back to the 70's.... Most of the tracks I just could not stand....

Melodic Death Metal

This one just came out. At The Gates albums have ranged from 65 to 81 in my ratings so this one in the middle. I liked all the tracks with "The Mirror Black" being the 2nd best of the album. "The Colours of the Beast" had a Gojira feel to it....

Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier (2010)

My Ratings: 69.900
Rank: 938 (out of 1213)

Best Song: El Dorado [78.0]

Heavy Metal

This one was ranked as the top metal album for 2010... Well, I must not have the same taste as those voting or Bruce Dickinson threatened them. What I did not like about this album was the length of most of the songs. 9+ minutes and back to back ones that sounded the same.... I liked 4 of the 10 tracks.

My Ratings: 68.870
Rank: 1021 (out of 1215)

Best Song: Ultra [73.0]

Black Metal

Only 1 song stuck out for me. My biggest problem with this album was the production value or something to that effect. It sounded like when you are trying to listen to a song on the radio but the station is pretty far out and you can never quite get it in clearly. Maybe that is the sound they were going for?

Ghost - Prequelle (2018)

My Ratings: 74.880
Rank: 488 (out of 1219)

Best Song: Ashes [84.0]

Progressive Rock

This one just came out today. This one started off heavy with the very chilling intro of "Ashes" but after the first few tracks it started sounding like some 80's new wave. I liked the heavy stuff and some of the softer. Did not like the last track at all. While I listed "Ashes" as the best song it really is just an intro so the best actual song in my opinion would be "Faith". Not sure if True Ghost Fans will like it or not....
