Kairos reminds me a little of Chaos A.D., although not as heavy. A lot of different rhythms from normal thrash/groove makes it a little more interesting. Demonic is Testament's heaviest, although some people don't care for it because they went groove. I love it because it's heavy and groovy. I can't say there's a "bad" Testament album. A few are uninspiring. The newest doesn't do a lot for me, but I wouldn't call it bad, just nothing stands out about it. Legacy is still my favorite, but the production is really thin.

Their new stuff is OK, but I'm pretty much only a fan of Spreading The Disease and Among The Living.

I'm a huge fan of 3 of the first 4 Trouble albums. They are what Sabbath should have become. A spin-off called The Skull put out a decent Trouble-ish album a couple of years ago, but so far only one. They are supposed to be working on a second album. The first Trouble album (Psalm 9) is probably the only 30+ year-old album I still play on a regular basis. Songs like Revelation and The Fall of Lucifer are just amazing. Even their mediocre albums have some great songs, like Opium Eater on Plastic Green Head. Funny, while writing this I decided to see if there's a remastered version of Psalm 9, and there is, but they only recommend the Metal Blade remaster of 1994. Just ordered a copy from Germany.

Usually not a huge Meshuggah fan, but their latest album has got my attention.

(Doom Metal/Dark Ambient/Neo Folk)

I've been debating whether to post this. For one, it's ... different. It's certainly outside my usual sphere of metal ... or music in general, for that matter. Secondly, I'm not even sure I would call it metal, but they do and so does GetMetal.org, so. I've never liked droning pretentious post-hippie kind of weird atmospheric vibe, but something about this one caught my ear. Maybe because it has a lot of shiny objects in it (good vocals, chimes, cymbals and whatnot). It's definitely mood music.
