    i'm not a massive beherit fan, but i still have a video somewhere of driving through norway blasting 'sadomatic rites'. those were good times, and that song fucking rules.

    You can't just drive through Norway blasting Finnish BM, that's just wrong

    Yeah I don't get the Beherit hate. Drawing Down the Moon is creepy, unhinged BM and it could even end up near the top of my list once I relisten to a few others.

    Beherit is awesome, but it's not surprising at all that some people don't like them at all.

    tbh they're not all that bad ... there are a few okay songs on their masterpiece but from what i remember Engram was better.

    The album is in my opinion nothing more than an afterthought in a year like this where near perfect albums are getting cut from our top 10's.

    What are you first and second?


    Deathspell is better than Beherit though. I’d take Inquistors of Satan, Manifestations and half of SMRC over anything Beherit ever did.

    DDtM is cool and all, but I agree that Engram is better.

    Yeah that album is underrated and nearly on par with the tech death of that time which is saying a lot



    Where's your list?

    ... almost ready, i have a few albums fighting it out for the 9-10 spots, including Extravasation. This has been such a hard year to rank.

    Quite a respectable first post. Even if Sepultura did get #1.

    Yeah I know al lot of people don't care much for Sepultura post-Arise. But I really appreciate the direction they were heading in on Chaos AD. Kisser was in fine form on the axe (as always), Igor's drumming was monumental and Max never sounded as good on the vox as he did on that album. For me, they had taken their thrash roots to their logical conclusion on Arise, and Chaos AD turned out to be a really unique album that showcases a whole bunch of sounds that had never really been explored by metal bands before.

    Fast forward three years later and it all turned to shit with Roots. Ugh.

    I should also mention Edge of Sanity's The Spectral Sorrows, which I forgot about before. However, I'm more of a fan of their Crimson album. Their earlier stuff is a bit too melodic for me.

    I think Sepultura peaked, thrash-wise, with Beneath the Remains and from there it was a steady decline, finally tunneling up their own asshole with Roots. For me personally they peaked with Schizophrenia though.
