Really? I can only imagine the money I'd have saved if I could've bought just singles over the years. Cassingles only went so far 😉 There were so many one hit wonders that I had to buy the whole tape/cd to get the one good song. I'd always listen to the whole album to look for other potential gems, but often found that they already knew which was the best song, not always but usually. Those extra songs just take up space in my liberry. To each his own though.

8 Bit metal is shockingly easy to listen to in small doses. Makes me want to fire up the ol' Nintendo.

It's their self titled album. I like most of it. Dude throws a great voice live. It didn't even look like he was trying, and his growls were just grizzly!!!

Small world.

While Danzig seemed to be a bit of an ******* in the video and deserved a smack, I've gotta ask, Does your coworker make sure every new group of people he meets know that he's the guy the punched Glenn Danzig ?

Speaking of Rob Halford,

I LOVE this song. Not many people in the business hit high notes like Halford while NOT sounding cheesy.

My thinking has always been if the whole album is not worth having, then neither is the one individual song. I don't like just listening to a song here and there too often, most of the time it's full albums.

It's so odd for me to look at someone else's music collection because usually they just have a song or two from each artist. I just don't get that, but hey to each his own.

Your right, to each his own. Say you hear a song you like and decide to buy the album. You listen to it and don't really like the other tracks. Does this mean that whenever you want to listen to the one song you do like, you sit through the whole album?

I'm a big Skinless fan. I saw them with Dying Fetus and Misery Index about 10 years ago and it was arguably they best concert I've been to.

No, for me that one song isn't worth listening to if the artist isn't talented enough to put together a quality album.


I don't always listen to full albums of course, but if there is just one song off an album I like I find that pretty soon I don't have much interest in that one song anymore.

I'm pretty much the same way. When I play music I'm in the mood for a band or an album, not individual songs. I've never been one to shuffle or make playlists. I never buy individual songs and an album has to be 75% good or I won't buy it because I know I won't listen to it no matter how good a couple of songs might be. A good example is Bloodbath's Nightmares Made Flesh. I like about half of it, but I haven't played it in months, even though the following is one of my favorite death metal songs.

Dang!!! I typically have my 6000 track library playing just randomly, and that is the only way I listen to music unless I have just recently gotten some new content at which point I will listen to my recently added playlist thrown in there.

Ditto. I make up playlists according to the mood I'm in. I have only a dozen or so albums I'll listen to straight through, ie Metallica, Tool, Days of the New just to name a few.

I think he is pretty quiet about it. When he started we had to play "two truths an a lie" and one of his was "I'm on VH1 as the #1 most shocking moment in rock 'n' roll history". I saw the video before I knew him but he looks an awful lot different now. I imagine I tell more people about it than he does haha!

That's similar to what I do. I have my entire 5000+ library loaded and I'll listen to an album and if I'm in the mood for something else just use random on Winamp which keep all the albums and songs in order. If I'm in the mood for that song/album - great. If not, random again and so on.

This was all I did until I started using Spotify, now I use that a ton to find new music, a lot of which I get from this thread. smile.gif

For you guys chatting about playlists. I've found Google Music works really well. I only use the free version that stores up to 20,000 songs and takes your computer music library and puts it on their "cloud" so you can listen to it anywhere in the world on a phone, tablet, or computer. Once you have your library loaded and you find a song that you like you can hit "Start Instant Mix" and Google will identify similar songs and put them in a playlist that grows the longer you listen.

Just so I don't look like a fanboi here is some fast and aggressive black metal from Marduk. Never been a huge fan but the first song on the album is one that I reference when people want heavy fast music.

Well the first step would be to put all 2,000+ disks on my computer. I'm far too lazy for that.

Well, I've listened to it once. I like to listen to an album more than once to get a good feel for it, but realistically it only takes once for a great album to blow you away. This isn't a great album. I'd have to say I'm a little disappointed. Not that it isn't good. It is. If you like Kataklysm you'll like this. But it doesn't seem to be as furious or have the variety of previous releases. And it has no songs that grab you by the throat like Push The Venom or Crippled and Broken. I still prefer Prevail and Serenity In Fire, but I'm not sorry I bought it.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly. It was ok. My favorite is In the Arms of Desperation, I don't know if they will match that one again. They have had some songs that are great since but not full albums IMO.

ANyone have thoughts on High On Fire? They are coming through Monday and a buddy and I are considering hitting it up, but I don't have a lot of time in listening to their content...

More death metal ...

Their songs might be parodies of Cannibal Corpse, but in many cases they're better than the real thing.




... and how about the "grooviest" death metal in my collection ...




Here's the complete album.
post #957 of 1186
Parodies are the best.

Do you like Macabre?

Ha. The Weird Al of heavy metal.

This is my favourite Kataklysm song. That instrumental at the end of prevail. The louder the better.

I have a lot of metal concert disks, but this one is one of my all time favorites. Incredible sound quality.
