Nile's first album is quite solid, ill always maintain that it is one of my personal favorite death metal albums.

Decapitated had about an album and a half that was slightly interesting, same with Insomnium.

otherwise....this list makes me shiver.

claiming Lamb of God has any musical merit to them at all would just make me fall off my chair laughing.

if it was said seriously....well then i dont know what the future of metal holds if it is to be like that pathetic excuse for a band.

the only thing funnier that what you posted is the fact that people actually went to the trouble to do it.

ill look into them.

the title track drags on too much but the rest of the tracks are killer for post 1996 death metal. (which i just realized isnt saying much...)

i had that album and found it directionless cut-and-paste riffing with some of the most obnoxious vocals ive heard in some time. really, just give The Amenta's "Ocassus" a try. not in the same league but David Haley (the drummer) really puts his talents to work.

on topic:

Vomitory - Blood Rapture
a respectable take on the "classic" Swedish Death metal sound, only with a modern flair. mixes aforementioned sound with the NYDM, or "brutal", style, but without those despicable slam riffs, as well as hints of hardcore punk. songs are straightforward and punishing, with chunky, speed metal inspired riffage. a good point is the fact that Vomitory chooses not to rely on constant blasting in their death metal, and switches to midpaced or thrash speeds at will. this is a very solid modern death metal album, and while it does not measure up to classics of the Swede scene, it is quite enjoyable in its own context. 8.5/10

im listening right now, and im about halfway through my second listen of the album.

this music is joyous, very moving and uplifting, though not in the "everythins gonna be allriiight man" way. highly inspiring work. i must admit that my classical experience is still quite limited, but i am really appreciating the intricacies of his work. it has a real beauty in the way it is arranged. i find it hard to believe that this man is still around today and is not widely recognized as being quite talented.

kudos for the upload, and thanks a lot.

Rapoon - Fires of the Borderlands

easily one of the better ambient albums i have heard. makes one feel as if they are floating or sitting out in the middle of a big field. really enthralling and although some tracks do get repetitive after a while, most of the time the quality of the arrangements is high. recommended for any fans of dark ambient. 8.5/10

Nothing, really. I dont know what the goal of this was.

If you want to pick on someone for dying why not that worthless waste of life from that Drowning Pool nu-feces band?

people use the word faggot too much on this site. perhaps theyre compensating?

promoting this site by making fun of someone else's passing is a surefire way to REPEL people.

i wouldve thought members here would be more mature and intelligent than to promote such idiocy.

ASBO, you mentioned Kronos a few pages back.

i have not heard "Colossal Titan Strife", but i do own "The Hellenic Terror". the production is a bit too spic-and-span for me, as i like my death metal to be a bit gritty. they sound like a cross between Suffocation and a band like Neuraxis. more than competent instrumentally, with some really excellent moments in some songs. lots of variance in riffing, and although they are quite technical, dont expect to be bombarded with Decrepit Birth-like muddy garbage. the album starts dragging around halfway through, but the first 2 tracks are the highlights. every other track is in second place. but as a whole, i would give the album a 7 out of 10, and suggest you to give it a try.

Lucky kids, to have a record deal at such a young age.

Too bad the music isnt good.
