Two lists: I made list B first.  List A is composed of the first POST.  I deleted the stuff I didn't think fits or never heard of.
+ means I didn't think of it in list B OR I assumed it was already on there (and in some cases it is).  Admittedly, these are two very different cases.
++ means I put it in my own list (the second list that I made before reading the first post) and found it in DMBM's list and recommend it even more so)

The second list is my own list.
? = I have reservations; don't think it fits the site's tastes
CAPS = strong recommendation
'for better or for worse' = already know you're going to hate it but still needs more coverage
'although already written off in another article somewhere' = similar to previous; actually not sure how it's different besides being more explicit...
'to see where they fit in around here...' = doesn't fit in with the site's tastes, but still related and famous
o_0 = same as previous, but even more famous

Add Mefisto to the list, IMO.

EDIT:

And Sadus.

Re: Bands that should be reviewed
November 28, 2008, 11:12:06 PM
Electro Hippies.

Edit:

It also seems that Martyr is missing from the DLA main list. IMO, their other albums should be reviewed.

Yet another Edit:

Insanity was another California Bay-area quasi-death metal/thrash band, similar to and originated around the same time as Possessed, that is overlooked and shadowed by the bloated egos of attention whores like Death.

http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,1680.0.html

Another edit..:

Annihilator - Canadian speed metal

http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,933.0.html

Alice in Hell can be upped if needed, it's the only one by them that I really feel is their best.

Re: Bands that should be reviewed

I gleaned through the lists posted and tried to trim the fat of the decent but unnecessary works, and remove stuff that has been gotten to already.  I'm not certain if the objective is to make a list of quality material, or a list of material that needs to be reviewed, crap included, for the purpose of functioning as a warning against those albums.  If the latter is the case, put back everything I cut out and then some!  However, I sense the purpose is to get the good material so that an "if it's in the DLA, it must be good" vibe can be established/maintained.  Some material, like Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden, was removed simply because I don't see the need to continue reviewing them; everyone knows who they are and what they have to offer by now.  Albums for each band are listed since it seems less intimidating when you see that a band's whole discography boils down to one or two essential works.  I also added a number of things I thought deserved mention or were overlooked in the current review database, but I am sure there are many more worthy entries.

Black Funeral – Vampyr/Throne of the Beast, Empire of Blood
Bolt Thrower – War Master, Realm of Chaos, The IVth Crusade
Brutality – Screams of Anguish, When the Sky Turns Black
Carcass – Necroticism
Cathedral – In Memoriam
Cemetary – An Evil Shade of Grey

What did I just say about the search engine? It found two reviews of that SA album, one from Heidenlδrm and one from LARM.

While I'm sure there is plenty of material "hidden" all over, I feel like the point of a reviews database is to have it all up front and easily found.
