    The Blessed Hellride isn't a bad album at all, I'd even say it's Society's best.

    That or 1919 Eternal but TBH is much stronger in terms of songwriting. Zakk Wylde's solo stuff/Pride & Glory is way better anyway.

    I have to revisit 1919. I must admit I really like the lyrics on TBH let alone Stillborn.

    Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend
    While Heaven Wept - Of Empires Forlorn
    Deathevokation - The Chalice of Ages
    Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn
    Agalloch - The Mantle
    Sigrblot - Blodsband (Blood Religion Manifest)
    Nokturnal Mortum - Weltanschauung
    Mourning Beloveth - The Sullen Sulcus
    Funeral Mist - Salvation

    I prefer to look at the House of Atreus albums as one long album, but II is really good as well.

    Stronger Than Death & 1919 Eternal are where it's at for BLS.

    Not really. I'd go with Oath Bound. However, all Summoning albums are contenders.

    I think I've said enough about Summoning these days but Old Morning's Dawn is my favorite since it came out.

    Mine's definitely Stronghold and i still wonder why it wasn't included in the SOME box set,it's annoying and bizarre.

    Same,even today Stronghold inspires awe for me. I can't of another release that is so complete, not just the music but that damn cover art and inlay.

    Seriously? I found that record rather uninspired. It sounded like garbage for me. Maybe it needs revisiting, I think so if someone lists it as a modern classic.

    A lot of interesting stuff going on to my ears, This isn't the first time I've loved a Melvins record others have despised though. Hostile Ambient Takeover is also a favorite of mine that gets no love.
