Qualeen's Albums-to-Listen-to Checklist


Thumbs up: +1
Fairly self-explanatory. I don't think I will approach these in any particular order, I'll treat it whimsically. I'm not sure what I'll do once I have familiarized myself with these sufficiently. I might go and leave a comment on the album's page or something.

96. -----------------------------------------------------------
97. Necrophobic - Darkside
A thoroughly enjoyable listen from start to finish. The album structure reminds me of Reign in Blood/South of Heaven by Slayer. Pretty much what I expected from Necrophobic - quality and sinister nature. Will definitely come back to. 8.9/10
98. Allegaeon - Damnum
Really cool! The musicianship is great and so is the songwriting. Sadly I was getting a bit annoyed by certain melodies, choruses and passages. 7.9/10
99. Metal Church - Metal Church
I like the vocals. The songs were surprisingly dark and heavy. 8.6/10
100. Paradise Lost - Draconian Times
I'm sort of torn on this. On the one hand the performance, production and songwriting are immensely good here. On the other though, I'm not much of a gothic guy and it clearly shows. This was highly enjoyable in general, but the songs felt fairly similar to another. That would be fine by me in a extreme metal album, but this is not quite one. 8.5/10
101. Dark Tranquillity - Damage Done
Brilliant. 9.0/10
102. Kvaen - The Great Below
Here comes my bias. Melodic black metal is just so pleasant to me, especially when done well, which this is. The range of moods and influences is huge. A cinematic experience. 9.3/10
103. Nocturnus - The Key
This is the same scenario for me as with Vektor. I can appreciate the skill it took record this, and I can have plenty of fun listening to it, but it's a bit overwhelming. 8.0/10
104. Samael - Ceremony of Opposites
The guitar sound is perfect. The vocals are perfect. The atmosphere is perfect. I don't throw 10's around like crazy, but it this one might turn into one later on. 9.5/10
105. Sarcófago - The Laws of Scourge
Sounds very primal, the drums stand out overall. 8.3/10
106. Undeath - It's Time...To Rise From The Grave
This is excellent stuff to bang your head to, but it lacks variety and seems too based on recent Cannibal Corpse. 7.8/10
107. Borknagar - Empiricism
Well written, well performed, but it seems a bit vain and pretentious to me. 7.5/10
108. Aborted - TerrorVision
It was an enjoyable listen, but hardly memorable. 7.7/10
109. Deathspell Omega - The Long Defeat
Coming from a fan of The Furnaces of Palingenesia, I was let down. If an album makes me sad, that's okay. But I don't like being sad and bored simultaneously. 6.8/10
110. The Black Dahlia Murder - Everblack
These guys have once again succeeded in impressing me. I've been on a Black Dahlia Murder listening grind, and this finding only reinforces it. 8.6/10
111. Behemoth - Thelema.6
It's alright, but the harmonies are annoyingly repetitive and it lacks anything remotely remarkable. 7.0/10
112. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
As a person who barely enjoys blackgaze, this album delivered probably the most enjoyment that I can ever find within the genre. 8.3/10
113. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious
Wicked Stuff, just not as mind-blowing for me as Heartwork was. 8.8/10
114. The Black Dahlia Murder - Verminous
I've got to be weird or something for loving this so much, but I don't really care. I'd dare say that this is what I've been looking for in metal for a while. 8.8
115. Morbid Angel - Formulas Fatal to the Flesh
Actually really solid, but it gets a bit annoying towards the end with the instrumentals (the longest track which they sandwich though is probably my favorite on the album). 8.1/10

Hi, thanks for the response. I can try to even prioritize these, it's just that it's gonna have to wait till tomorrow because I'm finishing listening to Allegaeon's Damnum now and I've got to sleep after.
