    I'm sure someone has already posted this... but Meshuggah's new album is the best thing since... wait, no... It's better than sliced bread.

    You should really try to find "By The Blessing of Satan". In my opinion it's much better than MSFHG. It doesn't have that "orthodox feeling" like My Soul but the songs are better crafted, one of the better finish album.

    Nyktalgia's latest is actually pretty good - leagues ahead of their debut. I don't know when the fuck Faustcoven's Rising From Below the Earth is going to be released, but it will surely obliterate everything.

    It was supposed to be out in June, meaning it will probably be out in August or September knowing Barbarian Wrath.

    I should give that album another listen. When I first heard it I wasn't too fond of it but it seems a lot of the albums that have come out in 2008 have grown on me with multiple listens.

    The "orthodox" elements seem to be the selling points for me, though. I love every minute of the new album.

    I listened, as soon as I heard the chorus on in the failing hour I stopped listening...also the music is boring and not progressive enough for my tastes.

    Are the bonus tracks worthwhile on this? The local record store has this for $10 right now, and I'm thinking about picking it up.

    I'm thinking of picking up Vader's XXV. They basically took a ton of tracks from their back catalogue and re-recorded them. Not sure if it's worth it, though.
