Ulver; I disregarded this band after hearing Nattens Madrigal quite a while ago, and have recently seem them fellated as THE best band around. Anyone here got anything to say about them?

Thrashy black metal with some (occasionally annoying) folk aspects.

Overall, I enjoy Absu.  I'd recommend The Sun Of Tiphareth to start, followed by Tara.

Certainly overrated and not particularly worthwhile, though not as horrible as, say, Arcturus.

Septic Flesh
Thou Art Lord


Anyone?

Early Septic Flesh are basically slightly doomy "melodic" death metal. Heavy metal-styled guitars and incidental keyboards are thrown about quite liberally. Borders on maudlin, surprisingly listenable, not essential by any stretch.

THOU ART LORD are very run-of-the-mill Greek style (with NECROMANTIA and ROTTING CHRIST members, no less), the first album being better than the second. I've no idea about the newer discs.

Judas Priest - Painkiller

"Please To Kill" is Kreator's best album, so if you have any interest in the band, direct it towards this one, on which you'll find the solid hybrid of speed and death metal which was emerging at this time.

"Painkiller" is essentially Priest playing European-styled speed metal, while still retaining all the clichéd silliness you'd expect from heavy metal. Still, it's one of their better albums, even if irrelevant to metal by the time of its release.

I really like Absu. I'd say get Tara first, then if you like that get The Sun of Tiphareth, then if you're still hungry get The Third Storm of Cythraul. Those three albums are probably the only ones worth tracking down.

How are Dismember's demos?  All I've heard is LAEFS, but the demos have been compiled onto a CD, which has me sort of interested...

I've read some fanatic reviews about Therion's Lemuria, did anybody bother to listen to it?
