Well, this sounds like a rather unique blend of classic Thrash with the 90s alternative trend. Not my thing at all, but if you're into that, I can see why you would like it because I don't think there are many bands that sound like that. They either went one way or the other, but this one seems to walk right down the middle between old school and "modern" 90s Metal.doomedplanet wrote: ↑Mon Jun 10, 2019 5:16 pmNo one talks about Entophyte - End of Society's Sanity (1992). Maybe it is average, I don't know. Personally I love it and I can listen to this album I consider a minor masterpiece and really enjoy it every time. Never met anyone else saying that.

This absolutely chimes with & explains perfectly my feelings about Riot's 'Thundersteel', although i'm coming at it from the complete opposite direction & prevailing thought on that one.Cochino wrote: ↑Sun Jun 09, 2019 8:09 amSometimes this might be determined by when you listen to an album. I'm gonna lose everybody on this board with this example, but I was kinda surprised when I found out that Cannibal Corpse's "Gore Obssessed" album was actually considered a weaker one by many people. It was one of the first albums I heard from the band, since it was the newest one at the time, and also one of the first Death Metal albums I've ever listened to, so I loved the shit out of it and still enjoy it a lot to this day but nowadays I can see why people who were actually following the band at the time would be underwhelmed by it since it was pretty much the same they had been doing since the vocalist change. But the lack of context allowed me to judge it "in a vaccum" so to speak, and I really liked the riffs and the tracks on their own merits, so I can still have a good time listening to it nowadays.
That's a great example, and i totally agree, Tank knocked it out of the park on that 1st record, and though there are inspired moments throughout their discog they just couldn't maintain the high standard they'd set for themselves on that debut.Cochino wrote: ↑Mon Jul 01, 2019 6:38 pmYeah, that also explains why so many times I enjoy knockoff/influenced/ripoff albums more than the originals. Happens a lot to me with Motörhead, for instance. I love Motörhead of course, but I find their albums tend to be weighed down by filler tracks that just go through the motions to get to the LP length, while I enjoy albums like Tank's Filth Hounds of Hades a lot more than most Motörhead full lengths, simply because it's packed with great, catchy and memorable songs. I wouldn't say Tank is better than Motörhead in any way, but I still end up playing that album more than pretty much anything by Lemmy and the boys.
