    Not sure if I prefer this or Contentum.

    For me, it's definitely "Terrestrials". It is my - by far - overall most-played album (still getting 50-60 spins per year) and I wouldn't hesitate to say it's also my overall favourite album of all times (in spite of some production flaws, which aren't the band's fault). The songs on "Terrestrials" are more diverse than on "Contentum" and they are overall heavier. I'd also say that Monika's vocals go into more different directions, whereas her craziest/most unusual vocal lines - I once called them vocal acrobatics - are definitely to be heard on "Contentum" ("Sultry Air", "Letters to Earth" and, of course, "Lizard Dance"). At the moment (after re-discovering "Contentum"), I'd say I find the latter slightly more impressive, but it's a difficult decision. Also, the synths/keyboards parts on "Contentum" sound weirder. But while I like all songs on "Terrestrials" very much, I can't say the same about "Contentum". I dislike the short repetitive piece (you can't call it a "song") "Torture". Ok, it's just 1 1/2 minutes long, but it doesn't make any sense to me and it doesn't fit on this album. The final instrumental "Outro" is OK, but nothing to write home about, and while I still like "What Crawls Underneath", it's a very moderate song by Atrox' standards and definitely less impressive than the first eight songs on "Contentum".

    Need to give both another listen soon. I like Orgasm fine too but the male vocals don't need to be there. Seemed the logical place for Monika to step out.

    Vultures Vengeance - The Knightlore

    This has been steadily kicking my ass for the past month or so. Surprised it doesn't get more love around here.

    Looking forward to more material by these guys. Really promising start. @Burkhard this might be up your alley.

    At least the male vocals were clean and not the generic growling you usually get in combination with female vocals, but I would have prefered Monika doing all the vocals, too. However, this wasn't the reason for her to step out. It was that she and the male singer/bassist had another conception about the future musical direction of the band than the other three band members, thus they both left.

    Sounds like it was released in the eighties. At least the first song was actually quite enjoyable, whereas the second one didn't do much for me, perhaps because it was ordinary mid-tempo Heavy Metal which I never really cared much about. Out of curiosity: Which of the bands I listen to made you guess I might like these songs? I mean, you were not completely wrong.

    No band in particular, just thought you might enjoy it.
