Metal / Re: AVZHIA "In My Domains" (2010) released, destroys black metal

It's a good album, but I find the first half to be very lacking compared to the second. Queen of the World is perhaps their best song to date.

Zemial's founder Vorskaath, co-wrote half of the His Majesty at the Swamp album as he was the guitarist who went by the stage name, "Necroslaughter". The information is there out there on an online interview to confirm this or you could ask him yourself.

I had no idea, that's interesting... Zemial and Agatus is very good stuff.

AWESOME. Their self-titled album is, without exception, *the* single best piece of black metal to come from Germany. If there is one black metal album that can be said to be a forgotten classic, it is their debut. Conquering What Once Was Ours is very good as well.

Nox Intempesta would like a word.

I never knew it had a rerelease, must have missed the news.  I don't like the artwork at all.

Master's Hammer "Slagry" is so bad i'm not quite sure what to make of it. Very bizarre album to say the least

This question has been discussed quite a bit, try searching the forum

The Maniac Butcher is good, i hear some early Behemoth and Gorgoroth and i'm sure they have a bunch of influences. I'm not really convinced of this band's notability however, how are they more than a sidenote?

Absence of Crimson Massacre is a mistake unless im missing something about them...Even if their new album will fail they deserve mention for Luster of Pandemonium because while not flawless it lonely leads technicality and phrasing in good direction.

The omission of Crimson Massacre is a bit startling now that you mention it. No Nox Intempesta either. Both are better than half the represented bands. Legion of Doom would also better be served with something not off 'The Horned Made Flesh.' Try Narjniians Eternal Winter, Chariots of Thunder, or Bridge of Lunar Tears.

Any sane individual will avoid this. Only Thy Mighty Contract and Non Serviam are real!

What about Triarchy of lost lovers? I was thinking about testing the waters with this band some more

We'll get right on that so you can continue to lazily suggest other work for us.

Yeah, I predicted that retort. I'd love to do it, but a large portion of this stuff i haven't heard before. There's likely someone more qualified than me who has a better overall view of things.

Can everyone please read the posted lists before putting in their $0.02?

My fault, however this thread is a mess and needs to be culled into a concise list of top priorities

Repugnant  - 'Epitome of Darkness' (ANOTHER SWEDISH BEAUTY FROM THE OLD DAYS)
Entombed - 'Left Hand Path' one of the best death metal albums ever (I know this is a no-brainer but wanted to say it anyways) 'But life goes on' Demo is really awesome
Tiamat - 'In the Shrines of the Kingly Dead' (fucking brilliant)
Pan Thy Monium - First Demo (i think called Dawn)
Demigod - First Demo

There's so much wrong with that list

Moonblood is very hit and miss, they have so much material but a lot of it is crap.

Blut & Krieg has a few great tracks but the rest is poor, it pretty much represents their whole career.

Their Nosferatu demo tape is actually the most consistently good piece of work from Moonblood i've heard.
