Crushing (Not For The Faint Of Heart)

A little list of albums that have been kicking my ass as of late. Some albums on this list may appear to be "odd" choices, but "crushing" in this context does not necessarily mean heavy. It could be referring to the emotional intensity of the release or the literal heavy pounding sound. Hope you enjoy.

1. Esoteric - The Pernicious Enigma
2. Ahab - The Divinity Of Oceans
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Warning - Watching From A Distance
5. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All

*The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes)*

This is a list of the top songs over 10 minutes long in my humble opinion. I had to resist the urge not to put every single Symphony X, Opeth and Agalloch song over 10 minutes long on the list so some of equally high quality are left off to increase diversity. Songs are sorted by approximate preference with #1 inspiring the list. I love long songs so if you know a good one please send me a message and I'll give it a listen. **Last Update 09/03/2011**

1. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
2. Gorod - Transcendence
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
5. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite

Promo's Picks Of The Passing Decade

Actually I wanted to write a blog as several of my colleagues, but now that we have this nifty new feature there's no reason to bother with formatting all the pics and stuff

So this was it. The decade which saw me turning into a metalhead. Actually I've been listening to metal since 17 years now, but not on a regular basis. This changed (to the better) when I joined this site in the good old days of MSR. Agalloch, Anathema and Tristania got me used to growls, Immortal and Agathodaimon to extreme metal as a whole and soon enough I was hooked to the vast plethora of styles which are to be found in heavy metal. The following list presents my personal top 50 of this decade. The order isn't really set in stone, neither is my musical taste, but at least the top 10 are somewhat fixed. Especially the 2009 releases, of which none made it into my top 25, might not stand the test of time. And please don't message me because you disagree with some of the genres, they are neither there to be discussed nor to educate, but to give an impression what the bands sound like. If you have about the same (broad) taste as I have, but aren't familiar with some of these releases, try to get your hands on them. You won't regret it

1. Negură Bunget - OM
2. Agalloch - The Mantle
3. Redemption - The Origins of Ruin
4. Dark Tranquillity - Character
5. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro

Drone Metal: The Slow Darkside

It's always the same riff… the same bass… for some reason you can't stop listening to it… it's appealing. The whole sound summons you into a spiral, a void… It's always the same thing, over and over again... it's driving you crazy, demented… it's so loud that you'll beg for someone to kill you. But the music won't let it! The music is up to kill from the inside, it's your soul it wants! That chord, trembling over and over again… ''please kill me… please for the love of God, somebody kill me!!! I can't stand it anymore!''

1. Melvins - Lysol
2. Earth - Earth 2 - Special Low Frequency Version
3. Earth - Phase 3: Thrones And Dominions
4. Boris - Absolutego
5. Thrones - Alraune
