    don't worry, i'm not abandoning the morbid angel one. just running two at once from now on, else it's gonna take forever to get through a decent amount of albums (especially with how slow i've been recently, sorry)

    Round 1 Tracklist
    1) Solitude
    2) Demons Gate
    3) Crystal Ball
    4) Black Stone Wielder
    5) Under the Oak
    6) A Sorcerer's Pledge

    select the ONE weakest link!

    Also my vote is for Under the Oak. Great guitar but the vocals have always seemed really awkward to me in the song... Like he's singing to a different song or something... The same as when Marcolin does it.

    Crystal Ball is fantastic you fucks. "Black Stone Wielder" is my choice, but this is, like, the best doom metal album of all time.

    Yep, that part is a 10/10 in the middle of a 9/10 song, among five other 10/10 songs. No real weak points of this album on the whole though.

    Black Stone Wielder.

    A very good song, but the least of an almost perfect album.

    RJ, you've gone down a peg in my eyes for voting Demon's Gate off the island.
