    Fear of God - Within the Veil

    Best description I can think of is Alice in Chains playing Slayer's slower South of Heaven-era songs. One of my favorite alt-metal albums.

    Marduk were AMAZING when I saw them live a few weeks back so I've picked up a few of their albums. This one is great.

    Fucking Nasum. :worship:

    Hmmm....Im a bit hesitant because I know this is not going to amount to anything close to Alive in Athens. How does Block compare to Barlow?

    It just sounds really sloppy and twangy to me. For instance, that bass solo on Distant Cries of Cranes...Just dont like the way it sounds compared to their other albums. Still listen to it though.

    It's not as good as alive in Athens, but frankly no live heavy metal album is PERIOD. It's good and stu block has proven himself a damn good vocalist. He sounds a lot like Barlow and sprinkles in extreme vocals to good effect.

    The more I listen to this the more I re-think my staunch stance as Traveller being Slough Feg's best work. Fuck.

    Lately I've felt the same. Both (and Twilight of the Idols) are amazing.

    :kickass: This is an indisputably great album. One of the most important records of the second wave.
