    And GoD was banned? Guess Deron finally got fed up with that childish bickering of his. He was pretty harmless, though...

    What do you think about Bathory's Blood Fire Death? I have always prefered death/thrash than black metal but I found some Bathory songs to be interesting.

    And I'd say Sepultura's Schizophrenia to be their best work.

    I agree with Blood Fire Death being Bathory's best work. Obviously if you prefer thrash / death, you're more inclined to prefer BFD, purely due to its thrashier feel. Songs like A Fine Day to Die, Pace 'til Death and the title track absolutely dominate.

    @ Crimson Velvet: Your second list is remarkably similar to mine - I have also been listening to Candlemass a lot lately (although it has been EDM*, not Ancient Dreams). Good taste :p

    I also agree about "Blood Fire Death" being Bathory's best, but I've been finding myself spinning "Twilight of the Gods" a lot lately. "Blood and Iron" and "Hammerfall", in particullar, are two AMAZING songs! But if you check out my Audioscrobbler, you'll see that songs from "Blood Fire Death" and "Hammerheart" are definite favorites.

    And misfit, you'll find that my list are perhaps closer to yours than you think. I've been listening to a lot of Bruce Dickinson, Summoning and Burzum, as well! :)

    And as for Candlemass, I've actually listened to "Nightfall" and "DEM", as well as "Ancient Dreams", but I just chose one for my list. Good taste? Nah... Flawless taste, is more like it! :p

    Nice to see another fan of Scald and Arcane Sun. Hopefully the code666 release of Scald's next one will give them a little more support (they were always DIY) so they can release their next full-length in a timely manner. I know Paul wanted to release a fancy 2-disc comp of all their demos, but it was put on hiatus because of financial difficulties.

    OK, I'm bored. Most played albums of the moment:

    Red Sparowes - At the Soundless Dawn
    Pelican - The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw
    Jesu - Heartache
    Bal-Sagoth - Starfire Burning...
    Jesu - Jesu
    Sepultura - Chaos AD
    Nachtfalke - As the Wolves Died
    Spiritual Beggars - Demons
    Destroyer 666 - Terror Abraxas
    Nokturnal Mortum - Weltanschauung

    Didn't see this part of your comment before now.

    I think "From the Past Comes the Storms" is perhaps their best song, but I find "Beneath the Remains" to be a stronger album overall.
