    I doubt it gets reissued. Dolorian just isn't well known enough, and hasn't been active for at least a few years, so I doubt there would be much money in it for the label (Wounded Love Records, which is owned by Avantgarde).

    To be honest, $60 would be cheap these days. More likely $100+

    Because it sucks or because it's usually only vaguely considered metal?

    Interesting list. Very curious about this obscure italian PM that you're ranking as high as third.

    I think I learned of Harvey Milk the band through wainds before I even knew of Harvey Milk the homosexual.

    we discussed harvey milk before. i don't especially think of them as metal either but eh, they technically are a lot of the time

    yeah i assume you'd like the assedium and sacred steel albums pompo. assedium are extremely italian haha

    north is the only SDG i really like, so far anyway.

    the great cold distance is where i checked out with katatonia, everything from there on seemed shitty to me. still fond of their middle period though.

    surprised you like keep of kalessin haha, i saw them live supporting enslaved back in the day, never really got into them though.

    definitely check out the assedium at least, it’s pretty pompeyfied

    The Keep of Kalessin isn't a nostalgic favorite but something I checked out for this poll on a whim and I was really positively surprised by it. It's pretty commercialized-sounding and I wouldn't expect you or your alts to love it but it has a tempestuous energy that I just get swept up in. The opener in particular absolutely owns:

    Didn’t mind this on the whole actually. It’s not awful. I’ve heard a few of their tracks over the years.

    They probably get a lot of flack because of entering the Eurovision Song Contest. But the track they entered with is inexcusably terrible:

    Lol, I had no idea they did that.

    EDIT: Wow that's pretty dismal, I can see why people group them with Dimmu Borgir.
