    Nobobdy agrees with me? And this retard has the nerves to call me a moron. :lol:

    ... but then again, i'v seen your laughable "they're like sisters to me" posts in the pics thread, so i wouldn't be surprised that a simp like you is defending mort.

    Also have to agree Ares Kingdom is extremely overrated here. Way too long and boring.

    Edited to merge posts:

    I'll add Grand Belial's Key - Judeobeast Assassination for black metal that fits thread criteria.

    Guess I need to listen to Traveller, I only have Slough Feg's s/t, but their albums are so ridiculously hard to find.

    Buy direct from them. They're cool guys and have pretty much all their albums.

    Depends. The S/T lacks cohesion and is pretty rough (both in recording and song-writing) so I'd only start with it if you started with debut albums as a rule. Traveller is probably the most immediately accessible, has their most polished production, and lots of shiny Maiden-y melodies and such, but it's not super-representative of their sound. The two preceding (Twilight of the Idols and Down Among the Deadmen) would probably be better starting points if you still want an earlier album (and they are my favorites along with Traveller). Hardworlder and what I've heard of The Animal Spirits are Slough Feg in a stipped-down, rocking 70's-oriented direction. Atavism and The Ape Uprising are both sort of transitions between their earlier more epic trad/power material the newer stuff, and might serve as better pictures of their discography on a whole if it wasn't for them being of somewhat lower quality/consistency.

    tldr; Twilight of the Idols or Down Among the Deadmen.

    Yeah i'd go with Down Among The Deadmen first.The album captures their quirky celtic Thin Lizzy meets Maiden stylings perfectly imo.
