7 Albums That Get Me Kickin'

At times, we neglect a certain genre or overall sound due to a "kick" of something that we greatly enjoy. This is a list that goes in circular motions - as the releases tag-out the current "kick", getting us back into something we know we love, but almost forgot about...then back to a previous one - and so on, and so forth.

1. Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
2. My Dying Bride - A Line Of Deathless Kings
3. Disgorge - Cranial Impalement
4. Morbid Angel - Domination
5. King Diamond - Them

Winter's Freezing Clutches

Autumn is gone, ushering in the mercilessly short days of skin-tenderizing, soul-weakening, weariness-inducing WINTER. Take thyself to a healthy state of depression for sake of joining the spirit instead of being here's the soundtrack (with a few oddballs that don't fit the thematic mood, but that's just how I am).

1. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
2. Sentenced - Down
3. Mercyful Fate - In The Shadows
4. Arch Enemy - Stigmata
5. Carcass - Heartwork

2. Bell Witch - Self Titled

Just My Current Playlist (Bands-No Particular Album, No Theme Or Motif) Updated! 8-5-12

1. Avulsed - Faves. Can't shed 'em...and don't wanna.
2. King Diamond - Always. ALWAYS.
3. Kamelot - Brilliance in the form of deep, longingly beautiful power metal.
4. Cannibal Corpse - Oh...well...I never grow tired of the first 6 albums. Some bands just stick.
5. Sabaton - Such gritty, melodic, and bombastic fluff. Gotta love it.

Vocal Affairs

Sove very good releases have been created without the inclusion of the vocalist that a band is famous for having; the one everyone thinks of when the group is mentioned. Sometimes these bands surprise us with a well-known replacement, a fill-in, or a remaining band member. These releases are more than worthy of listening to, liking, loving, or even (in some cases) proclaiming superiority over the regular line-up. This was put together quick, and will be tweaked and fine-tuned as time goes on.

1. The Crown - Crowned In Terror
2. Bloodbath - Nightmares Made Flesh
3. Judas Priest - Jugulator
4. Pyramaze - Immortal
5. Black Sabbath - Born Again
