02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
01:42 - Marcel Hubregtse BlackEssence is 100% right with his sludge comment. On average of every 20 albums I have to review each month at least 10 are sludge
Wayward Sons is easily top three for me and loads of other people as well
A great album on all accounts, back in the days when they played that terrifically unique thrash. Sounded better with Sabbat than the Wayward album and I prefer most of Skyclad's slightly later albums when they gave birth to folk metal.
