This is one of my favorite thrash metal albums. Everything about it is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sothern Stoner/Doom, July 7 2004
This is one of the best southern sludge/doom albums ever to be released. It is formed by ex-members of Pantera, COC, and Crowbar. It's absolutely wonderful. It's sort of like a modern-day Black Sabbath, with more of a Southern kick. There are suprisingly quite a few ballads, but they are all good. Standout tracks include the heavily Led Zeppelin-influnced 'Landing on the Mountains of Meggido', 'Lysergik Funeral Procession', and 'Beautifully Depressed'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Heavy Metal Classic, July 7 2004
This review is from: Powerslave (Audio CD)
This is one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all time. The album is actually genius, how they made metal the way it was in the 80's, with albums like this. As you can see from the album cover, the whole album has an overall Egyptian theme, especially the title track. This is where Iron maiden found their true sound. Not to say that Number Of The Beast wasn't genius, it's just that the evil lyrics are a little overboard. But this, what can I say? This is one of the best albums from the best band in the world. Get this and you'll be banging your head for the rest of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDERRATED AS HELL, July 7 2004
This review is from: Ram It Down (Audio CD)
THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED HEAVY METAL ALBUMS. I CAN'T FOR THE LIFE OF ME UNDERSTAND WHY NO ONE LIKES THIS ALBUM. IT'S EVERYTHING METALHEADS HAD HOPED FOR AFTER THE SLICK-SOUNDING TURBO. IT'S FAST, IT'S LOUD, IT'S OBNOXIOUS AND VIOLENT. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS A GREAT METAL ALBUM. ALSO THE COVER PACKS A HARD PUNCH (NO PUN INTENDED). THE PRIEST BOYS PAY HOMAGE TO THE MOST DAZZILING OF MUSICAL STYLES IN 'HEAVY METAL', AND DO COVERS OF CHUCK BERRY SONGS, (JOHNNY B GOOD). THIS IS THE MOST SEVERELY UNDERRATED ALBUM IN ALL OF HEAVY METAL, AND IT TRULY SUCKS THAT IT HAS NOT FOUND IT'S PLACE AMONG ALL THE OTHER PRIEST ALBUMS THAT WERE JUST AS GOOD.

This review is from: Vulgar Display of Power (Audio CD)
HERE IS ANOTHER MUST-HAVE METAL RELEASE FROM THE SOUTHERN GUYS OF PANTERA. THIS IS PROBABLY THEIR MOST FAMOUS ALBUM, AND ONE OF THEIR BEST. AFTER THE MILD SUCCESS OF COWBOYS FROM HELL IN 1990, THEY TONED THEIR SOUND DOWN A LITTLE BIT AND SOUNDED LESS LIKE A POWER METAL BAND AND MORE OF A THRASH ONE. BUT THEY WERE NEVER REALLY THRASH, JUST USING INFUENCES, WHILE THEIR MAIN SOUND WAS MORE INFLUENCED BY BLACK SABBATH AND KISS. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS I OWN. EVERY SONG BUSTS INTO PURE HEAVY POWER. STADOUT TRACKS ARE: 'WALK', 'THIS LOVE', AND 'MOUTH FOR WAR'.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Movie Ever, July 6 2004
Now this is what I call a movie. The other movies are really really good, but the epic saga a humans vs. machines comes to a dramatic and unbelievable close. Neo is unconcious in the real world, in a subway station that runs from Zion to the Matrix. As he makes his way to the dark and frightening Machine City, with lots of blasting tentacled robots and explosions, the saga reaches a conclusion: The fate of both races rest sqaurely on Neo's shoulders, and he must strike a bargain in order to save the planet from total annihlation. This is the best movie ever made and Keanu Reeves is just amazing in this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Coulda Been Great, July 6 2004
When I bought this book I was hoping for another book like 'Bang your Head', or 'The Encyclopedia Of Heavy metal'. Instead, this is a pretty boring book that has it's moments, but otherwise is quite badly done. First of all, the section on the 1970's is only like 20 pages long, he does only one short chapter on hair metal, which isn't my favorite, but helped put metal in the mainstream in the '80's. There is just way too much on Metallica, a very overrated band. And also, the author includes death, black, and nu metal, none of which are real music. Good parts are the NWOBHM segment, and the American Wasteland parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their Second Best, July 6 2004
This review is from: Rage For Order (Audio CD)
Rage For Order is Queensryche's second best album, after the self-titled EP. After this, they strayed a little TOO far into the progressive tendencies, and got a little too technical. But this is a heavy metal classic. Every song reaches epic proportions with those melodic, brainy guitar riffs, before exploding into pure heavy metal dynamite. Geoff Tate's shrill howl rival's that of many other metal singers, and is certainly better than Robert Plant's idiotic yelp. This is great prog metal, without taking the prog thing too far ans straying away from heavy metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awfully Underrated, July 6 2004
This review is from: Denim & Leather (Audio CD)
This is one of my favorite heavy metal albums...ever. Saxon were a fist-pumping, headbanging heavy metal band from Britain. They never really hit it big in America, like most of the NWOBHM bands, but attained a large following in England. I feel this band is terribly underrated, and this album is one of the best albums of the early eighties. The title track is a true headbanger's anthem, which gives homage to the club beginnings of Saxon themselves. This is one of those headbanger's albums that will always live strong in the hearts of metalheads, even though they were not a commercial success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among The Living, July 6 2004
This review is from: Among the Living (Audio CD)
This is another fine release from one of New York's reigning thrash metal bands. This is probably my favorite album ever by Anthrax. The album cover is just amazing (Even though I can't get it for the life of me). The sound of the guitars and the singing totally rocks, and the lyrics are cool, too. 'I Am The Law' is about a fanatical cop, 'Indians' is about the plight of the American indian, and I really like the line in 'Imitation Of Life' "Bands dress like women all lipstick and lace! I'd pass and image law, stick it right in their face!" This is one of the best thrash albums ever, and believe me when I say there are a lot of good thrash albums.
