41. R.U. Dead? - Promotape 
Okay, I know the band name is ridiculous, but just trust me on this one. This was a full-length demo and never saw a proper release, but it's one of the most astounding slabs of death metal I've ever heard. The band was formed by Uli Hildenbrand after the dissolution of Poison and continued largely along the same track, with a more refined sound that seamlessly merged Teutonic thrash with Autopsy-style doomy death, while also blazing a trail with sprawling compositions and classy guitar interplay. In a lot of ways, this band laid the blueprint for bands like The Chasm and Dissection. A true classic lost to time.
42. Internal Decay - A Forgotten Dream 
Mag 12 2010, 22:19 di Anthony3Just because a band is on this list doesn't necessarily mean I am a fan, I get stuck seeing a lot of bands I don't like on tours with bands I like.

This time, they're in chronological order
Sempiternal Deathreign - The Spooky Gloom 
Here's a band every Obituary fan should listen to and realize how foolish they've been to have worshipped that overrated tripe. Sempiternal Deathreign was probably the ORIGINAL death/doom band. This album came out a full two years before Autopsy's Mental Funeral, and one year before Winter's Into Darkness. Basically, it's really raw, ugly doom/death, influenced primarily by the likes of Hellhammer and Black Sabbath, as well as classic Teutonic thrash (Sodom, Kreator). And unlike the aforementioned Obituary, their solos AREN'T the only interesting thing about their music. There are some actually great riffs to be found in here. Songs range anywhere from 1:55 to 10:53, so there's plenty of variety here, as well.

As usual, these are in no particular order of preference.
21. Cosmic Atrophy - Codex Incubo 
THE death metal album of 2008. Cosmic Atrophy are a duo out of Houston that does what nobody truly ventured to do - pick up where Demilich left off with their legendary Nespithe album. Codex Incubo is a bit on the short side but it does an amazing job of expanding on the ideas Demilich put forth 15 years earlier. Don't worry, though, it's not a clone by any means. These guys are already hard at work on their next album, so there will more than likely be plenty more where that came from.
22. Torchure - The Essence 
Like early Morgoth and Bolt Thrower? You'll probably love this. Possibly the only one of the early German death metal bands not to turn assfuckingly gay in the mid-90s. Great atmospheric old-school death with both thrashy and doomy tracks…

Apr 18 2007, 17:58 di EmSixTeenOkay, I have a confession - I'm fucking addicted to the Italian house classic Calabria, and all of its incarnations. I can't get enough of it.. I can't stop listening to every version I have. Personal favourites are:
The mash-up from The Mash Up Mix 2007. Perfect mix, the vocals go great with the track. The mash-up of Roman Fluegel's 'Geht's Nocht?' which follows is the sex, too.
Calabria/Stepping to the Beat.Enur aka Rune's re-release, which is nice and.. funky, lol. :o
Calabria 2006 ft. Natasha (Club).The recently released remix by Alex Gaudino. Catchy vocals yet again, and the bassline makes me groove inside (hopefully not on the outside, I'd look terrible..). This one also has the lovely video. :p

So here I am, shoving more meat down my throat than most porn stars have during their entire career, and having to endure insufferable useless trivia (Did you know that the lady that wrote Mary Had a Little Lamb is pretty much the reason why Thanksgiving is a national holiday? More importantly: Do you care?). Okay, whatever, the food is what counts on this, the holiest day of American slothdom, right? Well, yeah.
Maybe that's what reminded me of what my old favorite radio station used to do on the Day of the Turk; play a bunch of food related songs. Man, I used to love it so much that I had friends tape the show for me and send it to me after I moved. No kidding. Maybe it’s just an East Coast thing, but there’s something wholesomely American about listening to Alice’s Restaurant while you get fat.
This Thanksgiving, I don’t have any friends to send me a tape, so I’m forced to scour my own collection to see if I…
Ott 25 2006, 10:02 di FlahMusic for Your Haunted House:
Back when I was wee, we used to have this Halloween tape that I got from some book club and it sucked. Really. Lame. Think a Halloween haunted house tape put together by Jay Leno's writers. "And Frankenstein got scared, so he bolted! Eh! Eh! 'Cause...'cause he's got bolts...in his neck...Bolted. Why won't Doritos return my calls?" But, whenever October would approach, I'd slip it into the tape deck because it was the only Halloween type thing I had to listen to. Argh. I wanted something that was actually scary!
Of course, you'd think that other people wouldn't fall for the same gimmicky bullshit that I did. But, without fail, if a house had legitimately frightening decorations, they'd have the same kind of crappy tape totally ruining the atmosphere. "Beware, THE WOLF MAN! Muhahahahaha! Awoooooooo...werewolves of London..." The house didn't seem so scary anymore, talk about missing the point! You'd shrug off the fake decaying corpses…
