I just went through all the pages in this thread, wow , its funny to see what bands i was into even just two years ago. I got a bit of chuckle out of the Black Witchery defense I attempted to give. Man that band has gotten more boring than ever. I see they now copy the on-stage fashion of their idols Blasphemy, i guess the robes got a little gay or something.
I wanted to get some insight on Manilla Road, I've heard some great things about them and apparently all their albums are top notch, but those could be lies and maybe they only have one outstanding album. Also im a big fan of King Of The Dead, Court In The Act, Angel Witch's S/T and Crimson Glory if anyone has any other recommendations for Heavy Metal albums of that greatness!
