    geadom´s favorite / essential metal albums, vol 2:

    Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime


    So prog metal is just wankery? Vocalists with their balls being squeezed by a cat? Lyrics about imaginary stuff that wouldnt even fit in Foster´s Mansion?

    Wrong.

    YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS SHIT NOW.

    This is crack, this is why you´re listening to music, this is art, this is fucking everything.

    -High vocals, but far from that "OMG my ears bleed" feel. Melodic, clear, and with great entonation on the right parts.

    -BEST LYRICS ever. Album is the best conceptual album ever, dealing with a crack addict that joined "the revolution" and did MANY crimes, then reformed in the hands of a prostitute turned nun... and then lost the memory.

    -Musicianship that is gonna kick your balls, with GREAT riffs, even better soloing, and wait until you listen the bass lines on this baby.

    -With all this ambition, the album NEVER feels bloated, excessive or a wankfest. Songs average 5 minutes at most, give you plenty of time to appreciate them without making you booze (take that, Dream Theater).


    Seriously guys, dont miss this album, it has already received like all the praise ever for a reason: This is pure prog / metallic bliss:

    Hell fucking yeah!
    8 years ago the internet radio station Pandora.com got blocked in Germany and up until now I haven't found a convenient way to bypass it, but guess what?
    An hour ago I stumbled across a Google plugin which bypasses every fucking video ban on the internet for me.

    Gonna post some of the shit the radio played for me today:











    Some shit I've heard there was really good progressive metal or rather music, but sadly couldn't find a video or Wikipedia entry for them.

    Thanks for the offer.
    Actually found a youtube video for one band.
    Had to unblock the youtube search for it.

    Also one of my favorite bands ever with a very distinctive sound:



    The other band was called "Event" with the song "Coincidental Existence".
    The band doesn't even have a wikipedia or youtube entry or anything.

    Does anyone enjoy the Morbid Angel albums with Tucker? I´ve recently been putting more attention to them, and Formulas Fatal to the Flesh and Gateways to Annihilation are pretty good.. not better than A to C, but definitely better than D:






    Havent heard H yet.. and just a couple tracks of that abomination called I.

    Never knew that Carcass had a video for this classic. I thought they only did that melodic shit Heartwork. Symphonies of Sickness and Necroticism ftw.

    Cool they did the best songs from the album as videos.

    Heartwork is good but it (and melo death in general) is not really death metal in terms of song structure. It's Iron Maiden type stuff with badass growls and Kreator Coma of Souls-esque melodic solos. I still like Heartwork but it's the start of Carcass's decline and of a decline in death metal in general. At least we got tech death with Cynic (first album only), Decapitated (first album is still hte best by far as it was produced by Peter from Vader), and Cryptopsy (First two albums only when they had Lord Worm) made up for it. I don't think anything can make up for Archenemy though. When Carcass was recording their comeback, they were advertising themselves as the Archenemy free version of Carcass.

    I fucking agree with your Melo Death description. Thats why Heartwork is the BEST melodeath album, because even PIONEERING those traits, they dont abuse till death (no pun intended).

    There are still lots of great DM riffs (not those lazy melodeath riffs), great lyrics, blast beast.. and cmon, Walker voice! One of the most unique DM vocals ever.

    I dont like melo death, but Heartwork is in a level above all those crappy albums.

    I personally dislike/despise it, but i suppose some others enjoy it. There are, however, a couple of interesting bands in the genre i guess:

    ^Im a fan of Lamb of God, their vocalist Randy Blythe is incredible IMO.

    Either way, I purchased August Burns Red's newest CD "Rescue and Restore" and in my opinion, it is a very good CD. Of course, if you think metalcore is just a bunch of noise, you won't like it probably.

    Just heard the cd of Surgical Steel. Heartwork with gore is my first impression. Track by track breakdown:

    1. "1985"
    An aping of Judas Priest's the Hellion with the title of the year that Carcass was founded. Pretty cool.

    2. "Thrasher's Abattoir"
    Full grindcore with melody attack about how they're going to eviscerate and murder the dream pop and post-black metal atmospheric shit loving hipsters along with the metalcore posers. Has lyrics I need to open up the dictionary to understand like the good old Carcass. 2/2 so far.

    3. "Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System"
    Heartwork-style with gore. Not bad at all for what it is. Some nice riffs. 3/3

    4. "A Congealed Clot Of Blood"
    First weak song on the album. Midtempo and slow Carcass is not good Carcass. This almost sounds like Archenemy. That's not good. First misfire

    5. "The Master Butcher's Apron"
    Groove metalish riffs, almost Swansongish first half leading up to a good second half with an almost Oriental ending. Melodeath done right.

    6. "Noncompliance To ASTM F 899-12 Standard"
    Heartwork mixed with Necroticism. Ken Walker is back for background vox. Good first NWOBHM solo but it slows down later to get super melodic. Not a good thing.

    7. ""The Granulating Dark Satanic Mills"
    Truly Iron Maiden with badass growls. What the hell does the chanted 6026916 mean though?

    8. "Unfit for Human Consumption"
    Holy shit did Carcass really steal the riffs from Megadeth's "Holy Wars?" Yes they fucking did. Good song though as Rust in Peace is a classic album. At least they're good enough to play that shit, unlike fucking Ghost (Duran Duran trying to be Mercyful Fate) who were stuck stealing the Symphony of Destruction riff for Ritual.

    9. "316L Grade Surgical Steel"
    Almost a rehash of No Love Lost from Heartwork but not as bad. Swangsongish and Led Zeppeliny. No

    10. "Captive Bolt Pistol"
    The single. Not bad at all.

    11. "Mount of Execution"
    Acoustic??? Carcass trying to be epic. It's interesting at least.

    Bonus track 1: "A Wraith in the Apparatus"
    Groovy. Swansongish but at least it's fast and Bill Steer gets a lot of lines.

    Bonus track 2:"Intensive Battery Brooding"
    More Swansong. But hilarious lyrics. Read them as you listen and then look up Blue Peacock and chickens on google.

    7/10 for what it is. Good but not great. Too clean and dynamically compressed. Jeff Walker doesn't sound as nasty with age and some of the tracks and verses are misfires. Carcass are back and they've gone from the gods of grind to masters of melodeath. They play tons of old shit live so go fucking see them. The LP should have awesome audiophilia-jizz worthy sound quality like the teaser unless they pressed it from the CD master

    I dont like melo death, but Heartwork is in a level above all those crappy albums.

    I don't mind some melodeath like pre Slaughter of the Soul (the fucking final sellout to retire) At the Gates and the first couple of Amon Amarth albums. It's really when they became just thrashy riffs but with New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) song structures did it start to suck. Arch Enemy is basically just like fucking Saxon or something only with shit riffs, shit song writing, shit vocals, shit everything. Basically repetitive thrash riffs with shitty black metalish vocals, and without the song and riff writing skills of real NWOBHM.

    For those of you confused, Melodic death metal /= not death metal with melody. Symphonies of Sickness and Necroticism have melody. Bolt Thrower's Those Once Loyal has tons of it. So do the flag bearers of Japanese death metal: Intestine Baalism and Gotsu Totsu Kotsu. The difference is that they're still old-school death metal in terms of song structure. Fuck even Cryptopsy's None So Vile, one of most technical, brutal, and best albums ever, has it.
