Funny, the "Snare" sounds like Ulrich's on St. Anger Tongue. I think Flots is way underrated.

What on Earth happened to this band?  (Although I do like the Jester Race)
I've played this album for friends who like In Flames and besides never hearing of it ever, they ask if it's really the same band and "what is this shit, what happened?" I happen to feel the same way, just about their later materialLOL





now my second post this is their 1st album. it was before they had Anders Frid้n on vocals. since it's their first album it can't be a wtf happened album

Huh?
Which album? St. Anger or Flots? I'll take "When the Storm comes Down" any day of the week Wink.

Edit:
Oh I see . . .
No I meant that it seems that Flots album doesnt get recognition and many have skipped it. I actually think they
put out solid albums all through their career Big smile.
Sorry, its been a LONG time to visit this Post, the posts about Flots was in response to "Vic" if you look on the
previous page.

For all of us who have been disappointed with Queensryche, well we NOW know why dont we? -this past year
(2012) Cry.

As a Queensryche fan who has been disappointed for decades now, I have to say I liked "Hear in the Now
Frontier"  (and remember, DeGarmo is on it, and on "Tribe"). To me "Promised Land" was the last great QR album, but "Hear..." was just another change, yet they chose to keep that "Grunge" sound, even when Grunge
was over a few years before.  Which is strange seeing they put Seattle on the map after Heart (and before The Accused).

Queensryche really messed it up big time with their last album Dedicated to Chaos, one of the worst and uninspired albums, from a band I personally love. 

True, even though I only like them up until their 1994 opus.

Some cases, IMO:

Evergrey every albums since Monday Morning Apocalypse;


I gave up on Queensryche after O:MC II..........dreadfully bad album. I can listen to HITNF, even if it's not 'metal', and Q2K & Tribe both have a song or two thats pretty decent, imo though the rest of the songs are meh.


As far as Evergrey goes, I'm a long-time fan, and I think the album Torn is their best ever. It's got the best combination of heavy riffing from their earlier days and the more radio-friendly approach they are now going for. Just a killer album, imo.

Bump.

I agree with some of the albums mentioned already, Slipknot and In Flames's debuts are both masterpieces in my book. To be honest though, I do like Slipknot's Volume 3 and a few of In Flames's albums after the debut.

Korn is a perfect example for me, I think See You on the Other Side and Untitled are two of the band's best albums, but Korn III was such a let down. I think Anthony Fantano (Theneedledrop) said it best, "What even is Korn III?". It was one of those "Back to our roots" albums that wasn't going back to their roots at all.

I'm surprised Judas Priest wasn't mentioned in this thread, as I would have never seen a borderline glam metal album like Turbo coming from the band after Defenders of the Faith. Turbo does have a few decent songs, but overall it feels bland to my ears.

I really like Renewal, although I don't get why people found it odd. It's still thrash metal, and I don't think it's that different to Coma of Souls.

Running Wild, at least from The Brotherhood and maybe even Victory too, up until the latest one which is actually surprisingly decent.

And for a recent one:

I actually think it sounds vastly different from Coma of Souls. Mille lost his rabid dog sneer, the sound production is way different too, and the band generally tried new songwriting ideas instead of just following their tried and true thrash metal assault. Some industrial influences crept into that album too. To my ears though the greatest thing about Renewal is what I characterize as a dark post-apocalyptic atmosphere. I really enjoy that.

Must echo the sentiments I see regarding The Blah Album. I was 21 at the time and it was the only time I was at the record store the morning of a release. I was back at the record store that afternoon to get my money back. Other things I've called it:
The Jock Album
The Bleached Album
Now it's just Meh-tallica

Other wut happenz albums:

Voivod - Angel Rat, then Negatron, then all The Newsted albums
Fates Warning - Parallels
Scatterbrain - Scamboogery
Black Sabbath - Born Again

^ I agree on Born Again, BS's weakest release if you ask me. 

I love FW's Parallels. 

DT - The Astonishing - what a mess!

Paradise Lost's last two albums - why did they get back to doom-death? Sorry, but Holmes as a growler does not do t for me, it did not do it in their early days neither. Now I can go hide... LOL

Def Leppard - constantly going downhill since Retroactive...

Yngwie Malmsteen - can't stand anything he did after 1996.

Slayer - Diabolus in Musica and GHAA... , their weakest efforts IMO.

Helloween - Straight Out of Hell - these guys usually deliver, but this one bored me terribly.
