Sugg, Ol' Timey

Collection of various suggestions I've made for addition to MS's db, not necessarily new bands or with new releases, but with a few "bonus" recent things on the end to check out in the future

Please don't forget, you're able to search fragments on MS, so "kanam" (from the right place/page) should return #3 on this list; searching "ggress" on the suggestions page (link provided) will show band #2 (and atm, one other) while "gress" will also find and show in the results all bands that have been labelled as "progressive"

1. The Abominable Iron Sloth
2. Aggression - Spanish thrashers
3. Akaname - local tech (now instru)metal (and not so local anymore)
4. Aneurysm - interesting (or not) mix with undeniable effort, from Italy
5. Arcana Imperia - Rus

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

Please Stop Feeding Crap to Your FOC

In the last several hours, I have (as is rarely the case) had a good, big breakfast + dinner.

I feel great. is rarely the case. So - what have I consumed, to put this diamond-in-the-rough smile on my dial? For once, no junk. No crap. No chips, no lollies, no chocolate bars, no Great White Bread. No shark either - but indeed, some fantastic fish.

1. Anata - Under a Stone with No Inscription
2. Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery
3. Cryptopsy - None So Vile
4. Death - Scream Bloody Gore
5. Entombed - Left Hand Path

Top (and/or unduly passed-over) Power Metal (?)

With the express exclusion of Na, Mg, K, Ca, Cr, Fe, Cu, W, Hg, etc.

EP, full-length albums, & single song picks from a Guy Who's Not Really into PM... Yeah, I should have put up Viron's cover art as the image but that Dokken single (theme song of Nightmare on Elm Street movie #3) just looks far more interesting. Whether or not that was a PM addition to a Hollywood soundtrack may be a point of relevance, but to me it's immaterial. Go listen to the music!

1. Eidolon - Nightmare World
2. Tad Morose - Modus Vivendi
3. Brainstorm - Soul Temptation
4. Blind Guardian - A Night at the Opera
5. Nightwish - Wishmaster

For to Listen Yet Again (bespoke, unfunny subtitle: 21 mostly fantastic songs in 2 hours)

1. Alien Ant Farm - ANThology
2. Collective Soul - Disciplined Breakdown
3. Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Sleeps with Angels
