Feb 9 2011, 6:30 di DetoxScissionThis was something that I had been working on for some time, mostly out of curiosity of the early Canadian scene. It was rather hard tracking down a lot of this stuff, but I was persistant and got 25 tracks from 25 different bands for my troubles. There were still a few I was heavily searching for, but it seems as though any musical efforts left behind by those groups barely exist and definately not online anywhere. I'm not sure about the rules on compilations and stuff like that posted on here, but I figured that with the majority of these bands broken up (Some a long time ago) and a good portion of them never making it past the tiny indie label and releasing an EP, a single or a split that it wouldn't be a big issue. I originally had Cryptopsy on the compilation, but figured that they would be slightly too big for this project (I did, however, put a track from their pre-Cryptopsy band Necrosis on here). Anyways, check it out and let me know what you think. If this is an issue, I can take it down without question. Enjoy!

My Top 4 Albums of 2009
Explanation: I've only listened to four of 2009's new albums. XD
1: Fragmentary Evidence - Augury
This is a ridiculous album. It's definitely death metal, but their sense of melody and riff composition is very much out-of-the-ordinary for the subgenre. The singing switches between growling and clean, with a use of female vocals that actually works: groundbreaking. XD It's a huge mass of shifting time signatures and riffs which somehow manages to make sense. Also, their bassist is awesome.
My pick of tracks: Sovereigns Unknown, Orphans Of Living, Oversee The Rebirth
2: Milorg - Vreid
I do rather love this album. It's catchy and rhythmic black metal, yet isn't untrue. There seem to be some folk influences in there as well, which is nice. The album's basically a concept album about Norway's role in World War II - the lyrics…

Blitzkrieg “Holy Inscription”
On their debut album “Total Thrash Terror”, Skullbreaker, performed a sort of old thrash meets groove metal. It starts off with a pounding intro and a screaming maniac which makes you feel very nervous about the whole album. They are kind of annoying but after a few songs they calm down and begin to take a surprising hold of you. The backing is very good and quite technical. The guitars draw you in with a speed thrash sense off catchiness and spontaneous solos. …
Nov 12 2009, 20:27 di dark_legionsIn my experience:
"Progressive" is a label from the 1970s. It means primarily bands that experiment with song structure and do so in a coherent way, both harmonically and melodically. Best examples are Yes, Camel, King Crimson and Jethro Tull (in which Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath played briefly).
"Technical" means difficult to play rhythmically.
For this reason, I'd qualify the following as progressive:
* Morbid Angel
And the following as technical:
* Between the Buried and Me
This is a definition coming from a 70s prog rock fan who also has been way into death metal for years. Also worth noting is that many prog death bands made their music simpler on the later albums. Hope this message helps stimulate conversation.
Nov 12 2009, 18:34 di Bren_denI haven't written a journal in a few years so I'm curious to see what some of the changes are that have occurred since 07 Nov 2006 and since I first started at last.fm in 2005.
My charts are still mostly full of metal but they have taken a drastic shift towards death metal from the black metal that was dominant when I first joined. Here are the artists and some albums that have been with me along the way, roughly in chronological order:
Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness
I got this album on a whim knowing only Fall From Grace, but hearing great things about this debut in particular. It was more than I bargained for; this album kicked my ass. This for me, and probably many others, was the starting point into extreme death metal (and a bit of Opeth, Obituary, Death and Possessed). This is probably the most-played CD I own.
Katharsis - VVorldVVithoutEnd
New black metal was looking grim until I found Katharsis. Im not a huge fan of their other albums and still haven't decided on Fourth Reich…

Set 25 2009, 20:22 di 399796kmsHere were are back again, ready for some more thrashing action. In my previous sections I focused on Thrash from the States and Germany, and so for this I’ll continue on the geographical theme and focus on bands from the rest of the world .Whereas the US and Germany both made immeasurable contributions to Thrash, bands from other countries did their fair share.
Anvil: A band only just now getting its due after toiling for three decades in relative obscurity. Anvil were among the innovators of Thrash, but despite being innovators and influential in the field, they were never a proper Thrash act. Their thrashiest album, Plugged in Permanent, is also arguably their worst. Anvil seemed at their best when they wrote songs that were heavy but still maintained a degree of restraint and catchiness. Today they might not sound like much, but when songs like 666, Mothra and March of the Crabs were released to an unsuspecting public in 1982, they were the closest thing to what we know call Thrash. …
