Good Things Take Time

Essentially I composed this list as a note-to-self not to take my negative first impressions so seriously. Most of these tend to be works I initially rated a couple points (/10) lower, because the music didn't seem all that great to my ears. Again, most, tend to have increased value once I delved into the lyrics - sometimes entirely away from the music. Yeah... normally I couldn't care less whether you're singing about clown-phobias, alien invasions, SC battles, real war on Earth or alternative uses for vacuum cleaners. Oh, and on that note: Acid Reign (ensure Bandcamp-player is enabled in your user Settings) - is that another band's music entirely?

1. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies
2. Anthrax - Stomp 442
3. Cathedral - Kingdom of Ends
4. Hypocrisy - Catch 22
5. Intruder - Psycho Savant

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

mz's Most Favorite Progressive Metal Albums

Progressive metal is one of my most favorite musical genres. The most interesting thing about this genre is the musical flexibility and the fact that progressive metal can come into different forms and this makes progressive metal one of the most divers genres of metal. For me, progressive metal is not just about stupid technicality and soulless show off. For this reason, my definition of progressive metal might be a little different from others. Progressive rock and metal were meant to put aside musical boundaries but nowadays it seems that being complex, technical, "intelligent", ambitious and pretentious is an inherent quality of prog metal genres. Screw this bullshits. Here are my most favorite prog metal albums. They might sometime be technical and complex but they all have their own soul in my opinion.

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Opeth - Still Life
3. Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor
4. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
5. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao

mz's Favs

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Lurker Of Chalice - Lurker Of Chalice
4. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
