Old habits die hard.
What are you smoking voting for the title track?!
“World of sickness, blessed are we to taste this life of sin!”
At least I didn't vote for Fall From Grace.
It was a tough choice, the entire album is great. I only voted for it cause it narrowly lost out to the other tracks.
Phyl is of the opinion that all tracks should win.
Haha no, there are definitely weaker ones. But I have a firm top 3.
This one is turning out to be more interesting than I imagined actually. Clearly few people who have voted agree with my favourite tracks.
Seeing “Fall From Grace” live is probably the highlight of my concert times. As well as a couple of Slayer songs.
Which are? Not sure if you posted that already. My absolute favourite is "Rebel Lands" and I've already come to terms with the reality that it won't win.
“Fall From Grace”, “Blessed are the Sick” and “The Ancient Ones”. Looks like the latter two will be gone this round!
Fall from Grace is just abut MA's "Victim of Changes" imo.
That being said, a lot of people here have argued that Victim of Changes isn't even Priest's "Victim of Changes".
My other favourite "Unholy Blasphemies" will go this round.
Great song but I wouldn't go that far.
Unholy Blasphemies going this early is a bit of a crime.
Which album will you do next Phyl?
I might have to purchase that long sleeve t-shirt you posted CiG. Goddamit! I’ve spent a fortune recently on CDs and other music related stuff. Also eyeing up the Slumber of Sullen Eyes and Nespithe hoodies!
I’ve been thinking Candlemass, either of the first two. Or Slayer Hell Awaits. I usually go off what albums got a lot of votes on the yearly threads because then people actually vote. Kinda want to do A Blaze in the Northern Sky as well.
I'm cool with all of those choices, especially Hell Awaits and A Blaze in the Northern Sky.
I'm considering doing a one off song survivor of my own, Realm of Chaos. Already a few games going though so I'll put it in my back pocket.
Also Ride the Lightning! Because I think my favourites from that album are pretty different to what most people would vote for. I absolutely adore the title track for example.
Are the results to these games archived anywhere?
I agree but at least Fall from Grace has that while the title track doesn't and just plods along.
I have never heard Pete Sandoval’s drumming referred to as poor. You both need to clean your ears out. He’s always been one of the most tasteful blasters out there imo. Never just blasts for the sake of it. The only criticism I can think of is that it doesn’t sound as forceful as on Altars of Madness. But that has more to do with the production than the drumming itself.
If they ever jump on the full-albums-live bandwagon I'd give the album another shot that way.
It's probably technically fine or whatever, he does all sorts of stuff on it, it's a busy song, but there's not an ounce of groove to be found. It's more soulless than most modern tech-death that gets the same criticism.
The songs are adjacent to each other in my autistic track ratings list. I could probably relisten and agree with you.
