  1. Honestly their best release since 'Night Is The New Day'. Has everything I expect from Katatonia and more. Opeth, Katatonia, and Devin Townsend had a HUGE impact on my life in the late 90's and early 2000's. Love this band so much!
  2. Track 11 definitely cuts short. Shows up as being 4:46 in runtime, but cuts off at around 1:53 and getting a corruption error. Just a heads up!
  3. That new logo is fucking sick, and DAN FUCKING SEAGRAVE artwork for the cover. Love this band and this has me hyped as hell for the album!
  4. 'Verminous' and 2017's 'Nightbringers' are TBDM's best albums. I have love for everything they've put out, and was supporting them when they were being heckled in the 'Unhallowed' and 'Miasma' days while supporting established Death Metal giants on tours, but these past two albums have truly been the best work. It's no secret TBDM have emulated sounds from a wide variety of Death Metal from various scenes and countries through their career. But these last two albums are where they have truly seemed to find THEIR sound after their consistently amazing and awesome journey. The last time I saw a band hit the mark on such a consistent basis was Morbid Angel and Edge Of Sanity in the 90's and early 2000's. TBDM give me the same level of joy I had back then going to the record store with my friend and his older brother who could buy the Morbid Angel and Edge of Sanity records for us with each album they put out. These last two have just hit me on a whole other level. If you don't agree, that's perfectly fine. At the end of the day, if you love their music, that's all that matters. Just wanted to tell my tale and express my love for these guys!
  5. REALLY good release. Has some very interesting sounds going on that all fit really well. Vocals have incredible range and the musicianship is on point the whole way through.
  6. In my honest opinion, 2019 has been one of, if not THE best year in Metal/Core music in a decade. Filled with established acts and new faces alike dropping album after album. The overall quality of each release reaffirms it further for me. The year isn't even over, and there's still massive releases to come and surely more debuts or sleeper hits to come. 2020 already looks promising as well, but this year is just insane. I haven't had a year like this where my personal "Best Of" list would demand me break it up by genre, and have ZERO issue filling each of my genres up with at the very least 10-15 per. It's just nutty.
  8. @Anton Chigurh Gandalfstorm is right on the money with the recommendations. Especially Twist In The Myth and Nightfall In Middle-Earth. I HIGHLY recommend their 1992 album "Somewhere Far Beyond". That album has the 2-part 'The Bard's Song' which is one part acoustic campfire-folk and second half is just a metal anthem. "Nightfall...." still holds up to this day as one of the absolute best concept albums (entore story is based off J.R.R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The History Of Middle-Earth posthumous works).
  9. In my almost 30 years (jeez) being in the metal scene, having gone to hundreds of shows over the years, Blind Guardian is still one of the absolute greatest concert experiences I have ever had. Opeth, Pantera, and other juggernauts never came close to BG's show I went to as a young lad. Playing Nightfall In Middle-Earth in entirety with visuals and then having everyone raise a beer and sing along to The Bard's Song (In the Forest & The Hobbit) was probably the single greatest act of audience and fan interaction I've ever seen live. Blind Guardian is eternal. Regardless of genre, they deserve a place in everyone's heart.
  10. Those KORG keyboards really add that extra layer of depth to the compositions. Haken would be proud! Would be sweet to see Matti Way make an appearance during their set at ProgPower 2020.
