    even in a genre with ridiculous album titles and band names in general, Where Owls Know My Name has to be one of the 5 worst album titles i've seen

    related to the above ^^

    I've been revisiting albums that I love over the past few days. A lot.

    Individual Thought Patterns by Death absolutely rules. The playing is so tight with these weird transitions all album long. I still think Human is better, for my own taste at least, but good lord the playing on ITP is so good

    I also assume that I'm listening to a remaster because Gene Hoglan is blasting my ears off but I don't mind it

    most bands would kill for a riff like that, but Death just throws it in under the MASSIVE Andy LaRocque solo

    some King Diamond albums are being re-released. i pre-ordered Abigail.

    Let’s talk about Mercyful Fate/King Diamond. vocals are an acquired taste, but I very much like Melissa, Don’t Break The Oath, Abigail, and Them.

    some of the other albums are far too cheesy for me, but in general, MF/KD belongs in the same breath as Maiden and Judas Priest.

    those early albums have some great metal riffs

    if I can be completely honest Julie Christmas made Cult of Luna infinitely more enjoyable tbh

    I realize that's like an impossible quantification but honestly you just have to trust me here

    album also shows that a track can't go wrong as long as "Cygnus" is part of the title*

    i'm listening to Emperor of Sand by Mastodon again after watching that Brann Dailor drumming video

    i wonder if there is a point when a band's playing gets to a certain point, and maybe their fame, that we just don't really care about what they are doing.

    the guitar-playing is so good that it makes me reconsider my own

    maybe i'm just lit but bill kelliher is like the best riff guy from the past 20 years. and this album is so good in that way, but they just bury him so badly on like every song
