    Destruction - Inventor of Evil
    Can't for the life of me get into it. Just lacking for some reason. Not essential.

    Nuclear Assault - Third World Genocide
    Absolutely horrid, stinking crap. Makes it apparent the band may never have been that good.

    Nocturnal Rites - Grand Illusion
    Meh. More of the same. Pretty standard stuff for NR and as power metal goes. OK to listen to but ultimately boring after the fact.

    Gamma Ray - Majestic
    I like it. Sounds fresh again. Most of the songs have interesting changes in them. Less like No World Order, more like Powerplant.

    Opeth - Ghost Reveries
    I like what I've heard and I'm still a fan so... definitely a purchase for me.

    Destruction is rehashing the same ole same ole ...

    Nuclear Assault ... totally agree with you ... i think the reviews have been totally negative everywhere ...

    The rest I don't care about :loco:

    it's not too bad, but nothing has really blown my load yet. still got a lot coming such as Mael Mordha, Obtest, hopefully Graveland. But I'm actually most looking forward to the new Scald. I need some WTF music.

    I'm digging 2005 more than 2004. Nevermore and Primordial have both released stunning discs. Some real strong releases from Corossion of Conformity, Dark Tranquillity, Bruce Dickinson, Grand Magus, Kamelot, Naglfar, Frameshift and November's Doom. I'm very much looking forward to new releases from Zero Hour, Opeth and Stride.

    Toby Driver: In The Li Li Library Loft [#8019]
    A beautiful collection of modern compositions by the brilliant young mastermind of Maudlin of the Well/Kayo Dot, a cutting edge band combining a classical ear for structure and orchestration with the power and immediacy of heavy and black metal. Featuring several of his band mates in key roles, and a number of special guests, this is music of great detail and searing passion. Years in the making, this is a CD that will surely catapult Toby into the eyes and ears of an exciting new audience. Four moody masterpieces of magic and horror.

    Cathedral - The Garden of Unearthly Delights
    Never really been a huge fan of these guys before... I'd been dying for more doom that isn't painfully slow and this new Cathedral satifies my expectations. It rocks out in a bunch of places and the 27 minute song is definitely worthwhile. Another purchase I look forward to making.

    anyway that is very unexpected news

    i always liked hate forest for the most part and for me "purity" and "battlefields" have stood up better over time than the drudkh stuff that everyone loses their shit over

    EDIT: yeah i think this rules
