    Dokken's early material is some of the finest 80's metal out there. And Don Dokken the least talented member? Next you'll be telling me Randy Rhoads was the least musically proficient member of Ozzy's solo band. Don is one of the most accomplished vocalists of 80's metal with effortless mastery of intense high singing (particularly in the mid to upper fifth octave), a wholly impressive infusement of funk and classic R&B into his timbre (extremely unique in metal, and especially hair metal), an enormous nearly four octave vocal range, a crystal clear sense of phrasing, and a razor sharp variance of tonal dynamism. Breaking The Chains is a psychotic fusion of glam and funk metal with great soloing and vocals, plus some intensely funky rhythms. Tooth and Nail is a similar venture but with less funk and more attitude. And then you've got Under Lock and Key. On almost no other album in 80's glam will you find a more perfectly restrained hurricane of rich, exceedingly well-calculated melody. George Lynch soars like an absolute demon across the neckboard and Don's scorching hot tenor has almost never been better. If you're complaining about lack of sheen or hookiness on this album of all albums? You're most likely literally deaf.

    Possessed - The Exorcist 9/10

    100% rules. Fuck off and die if you disagree.

    Zombie Holocaust - Boba Fett 6/10

    Average. Killer lyrics.

    Dokken - Dream Warriors 7/10

    The sound of date rape.

    Reverend Bizarre - Blood On Satan's Claw 9/10

    Reverendfinder General.

    Hexx - Sardonicus 6/10

    It was okay.

    Crydebris - Mononoke Picture 1/10

    Emo screamfagcore mathematics boo hoo music is suddenly metal now? Brutally downrating this for not even being the correct genre. Uprating because I love the film.

    Death - Evil Dead 10/10

    Masterpiece music to go with a masterpiece film.

    Godflesh - Dream Long Dead 7/10

    Heavier than Neil deGrasse Tyson's ego.

    Satan's Host - Strongest of the Night 9/10

    Love this shit. Loses a point for gutless production.

    Blood Freak - Gobble Up Your Guts Part 2 Revenge Of The Turkey Monster 7/10

    If you don't enjoy this, you're straight edge.

    Blood Farmers - Headless Eyes 8/10

    Fuck.

    Blind Guardian - Time What Is Time 8/10

    I love this, life is always better with some cheese on top.

    Deicide - Dead By Dawn 7.5/10

    As much as I despise the drums, this shit still rules. [clickclickclickclick rawr clickclickclick satan clickclickclick]

    Witchfinder General - Witchfinder General 10/10

    From the vocal sound to the riffs to the pounding drums and the film that is it's topic. GOLD FOREVER.

    Iced Earth - Damien 5/10

    Reminded why I only listen to old Iced Earth. 9 minutes of gigantic meh, spoken word section was the best part. Points for theme.

    This round was...

    Possessed - The Exorcist
    Added a point for featuring Tubular Bells in the intro. Awesome track. 9/10.

    Boba Fett - Zombie Holocaust
    Entertaining enough to listen to. 7/10.

    Dokken - Dream Warriors
    Man this song would normally not do much for me but the video was ace and I fucking love The Dream Warrior. The end of the video totally adds a point. 9/10.

    Reverend Bizarre - Blood on Satan's Claw
    People enjoy throwing these guys in here almost as much as I do Carnivore. The song wasn't without its merits. 6/10.

    Hexx - Sardonicus
    It was good but didn't go anywhere spectacular. 6/10.

    Crydebris - Mononoke Picture
    The contrast between cleans and harsh was great. I enjoyed this. 8/10.

    Death - Evil Dead
    Evil Dead is amazing, but this tune is just solid. 6/10.

    Godflesh - Dream Long Dead
    I barely even realized there was a song going on here. 4/10.

    Satan's Host - Strongest of the Night
    I dunno. Another Evil Dead song. None too exciting. 5/10.

    Blood Freak - Gobble Up Your Guts Part 2, Revenge Of The Turkey Monster
    A pretty rocking tune. 7/10.

    Blood Farmers - Headless Eyes
    Pretty doomy but not all that impressive. 6/10.

    Blind Guardian - Time What Is Time
    Enjoyable melodic number. 7/10.

    Deicide - Dead By Dawn
    This Evil Dead tune piqued my interest. 8/10.

    Witchfinder General - Witchfinder General
    Yeah this was a little blah. 5/10.

    Iced Earth - Damien
    I wanted to like this, but meh. 5/10.

    Possessed - The Exorcist
    2/10.
    For not putting an ounce of thought into your submission whatsoever, for being whats wrong with this game... I'd be surprised if this wasnt the very first submission.

    Zombie Holocaust - Boba Fett
    3/10.
    Why does this exist?

    Dokken - Dream Warriors
    7.5/10.
    This is great.

    Reverend Bizarre - Blood on Satan's Claw
    7/10.
    Good. I would have preferred TLoT's Blood on Satan's Claw

    Hexx - Sardonicus
    5/10.

    Crydebris - Mononoke Picture
    4/10.
    Sound and imagery disconnect here.

    Death - Evil Dead
    7/10.
    Good song but it doesnt really feel like my all time favorite movie...

    Godflesh - Dream Long Dead
    7/10.
    Fugly.

    Satan's Host - Strongest of the Night
    8.5/10.
    Had no clue this was even about a movie. Sad thing is I actually own the cd. Guess I never give the booklet the proper attention.

    Blood Freak - Gobble Up Your Guts Part 2 Revenge Of The Turkey Monster
    8/10.
    Do drugs. Get fucking murdered by a dude with a stupid turkey head.

    Blood Farmers - Headless Eyes
    8/10.

    Blind Guardian - Time What Is Time
    5/10.
    Not my favorite BG.

    Deicide - Dead By Dawn
    10/10.
    The one song of the three on the list about Evil Dead that truly sounds like it should be. Evil and cheesy and the distorted vocals fit perfectly.

    Witchfinder General - Witchfinder General
    7.5/10.
    Their second best song.

    Iced Earth - Damien
    8/10.
    Can be kinda long but actually has the feel of the movie, most songs on this list failed terribly at this.


    Suck it.

    How is Crydebris not losing points for being the wrong genre?

    Sounded like some post sludge atmospheric nonsense.

    Possessed - The Exorcist 9/10
    Possessed fucking rule. Definitely better than early Death and just as good as stuff like Master. Something about this is just more endearing than most bands of this proto-death sound. Oh and Larry Lalonde from Primus on guitar LOL


    Boba Fett - Zombie Holocaust 6/10
    Typical retro-thrash. Boba Fett rules and this is fine.

    Dokken - Dream Warriors 8/10
    Lol is that Patricia Arquette? I'd hit it. And this just fucking rules.

    Reverend Bizarre - Blood on Satan's Claw 7/10
    They still have better songs we haven't heard but damn that intro chug is fucking fun. The production on this one is strange, but it's fucking Reverend Bizarre

    Hexx - Sardonicus 5/10
    This does literally nothing for me.

    Crydebris - Mononoke Picture 0/10
    Literally nothing redeeming about this shitfest. This is fucking awful. Also, not metal so this should be a 0 for everyone. Seriously, if you fucks dig this you might like this one band called Iwrestledabearonce. Literally the same fucking thing.

    Death - Evil Dead 7/10
    So fucking refreshing after that Crybabygettingabris. Early Death is great, I just wish they could have maintained this shit longer.

    Godflesh - Dream Long Dead 7/10
    Godflesh are SO FUCKING CRUSHING. I prefer their first EP with "Avalanche Master Song" but this song contains that typical Godflesh atmosphere. Good shit.

    Satan's Host - Strongest of the Night 6/10
    Seeing these guys next month at a metal fest in Chicago. This is my first time hearing and I'm glad someone reminded me to check them out. Unfortunately this isn't spectacular.

    Blood Freak - Gobble Up Your Guts Part 2, Revenge Of The Turkey Monster 7/10
    Just reading that title and I can imagine that this is going to fucking suck but I was pleasently surprised. Stupid fucking horror-themed death metal from Razorback Records probably. Yeah, it's the guy from Frightmare after he left the band after their first album. I actually quite like this. Those riffs are fucking fun.

    Blood Farmers - Headless Eyes 10/10
    Of course I am twisted, because I want to find out something because I am sick. Extremely cult film reference from an equally obscure doom metal band. My favorite release of 2014 for sure.

    Blind Guardian - Time What Is Time 10/10
    Yep, this is my favorite Blind Guardian song from my favorite Blind Guardian album. Wonderful.

    Deicide - Dead By Dawn 8/10
    Damn, those first 2 Deicide albums are fucking amazing. I wouldn't listen to this much anymore except on certain occasions but fuck, thanks for reminding me. This destroys.

    Witchfinder General - Witchfinder General 9/10
    Burning a Sinner and R.I.P are their best songs but I fucking love this as well. This is fucking classic and true as fuck heavy/doom. If you don't like Witchfinder General, just go fuck yourself.

    Iced Earth - Damien 5/10
    Christ does this need to be this fucking long? ugh. Barlow is an amazing vocalist but this kinda sucks. Too much tough-guy chugging going on here. Chugs are fine and dandy, but this just screams core. Whatever, I've heard worse.

    that isn't one of the better songs on that album, and it's not a great youtube either. i doubt they'll be all that great live nowadays (although seeing the tyrant sing in the flesh is surely a goddamned privilege), but you should check out the debut anyway, it's fucking godly. maybe too uptempo for your tastes i guess lol
