Top 40 Albums That Blow My Poseur Mind

To walk the path of the metal poseur is to pick the plumpest of mainstream fruits and succour the sweet secretions contained within. It is the art of walking with giants of mainstream underground extremism whilst maintaining one foot firmly on the part of pop monumentalism.

The path is dangerous for the faux fur of metal consumerism is a tempting demon whore that claws at the inner self of underground triumphalism. These are the eagles that soar through the mind galleries of every metal poseur, no matter how compartmentalised their singularity may be.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Anthrax - Volume 8 - The Threat Is Real
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
5. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth

"Too Many Notes": A Study In Guitar-Masturbation

This is a collection of solos in metal songs that are friggin' long. Just for shits and giggles.
I don't care for quality; all insanelyfuckinglong metal solos are welcome.

I make the rules up as I go along, but here are a few I've already come up with:
- Let's say "friggin' long" is at least one minute

1. Ayreon - Into The Electric Castle
2. Bathory - Hammerheart
3. Beyond Creation - The Aura
4. Cellador - Enter Deception
5. Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper

Trance Metal: Drone, Ambient, And Other Servants Of The O)))

A large majority of bands within our metal genre take a fairly orthodox approach of being rhythm-focused, with catchy vocal and instrumental lines that are easy to follow along with, and riffs that more or less seem to always be working one after the other towards some type of grand finale. But what about those that don't? This list is devoted towards the bands that are more formless and free flowing with their musical structures, relying heavily upon repetition, electronic effects, and other nontraditional techniques for the achievement of hypnotizing soundscapes that are focused upon atmosphere above all else. Their music is the void, and ideas float across it at whim as sprinkles in a vast cosmic ocean.

1. Aderlating - Spear Of Gold And Seraphim Bone (Part One)
2. Æthenor - En Form For Blå
3. The Angelic Process - Coma Waering
4. Blood Of The Black Owl - A Banishing Ritual
5. Bloody Panda - Pheromone

My Favorite Reactions On Metal Storm

When a new song or album is released into the wild, it's hunted down, tortured, and slain by the armchair experts of the Internet (myself included). Here are my favorite reactions.

1. Meh.
2. This doesn't sound like (band name) and they suck for changing.
3. This sounds just like (some previous album by the band) and therefore sucks.
