Subject: Post an album only you have rated on MMA
Date Posted: 30 Sep 2020 at 3:18pm
Sometimes there's an awesome album that you feel more people should know about, yet for some reason you're the only one who has rated it on MMA. I decided to make this thread so they could get some exposure. Just post the cover and a brief description of what sort of music it is, one album per post and try to let a few other people post in between your posts. Also, don't do the obvious and pick a new release. Something that's a few years old at least. 

So to start with it is of course the album that inspired the creation of this topic:


http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/saturndust/rlc" rel="nofollow - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/saturndust/rlc

Saturndust is a Brazilian band that plays doom/sludge metal infused with space rock.

Gloomy, bleak and relentless.  A fairly recent release (2014) from one of the originators of industrial metal

One of my all time favorite albums. A nu metal album with a blend of funk metal, rap metal, hip hop rhythms, abstract lyrics, deadpan rapping, and some 70's metal style solos.

I can higly recommend this Australian prog Black metal release. It´s reather unconventional and very intriguing:
MISERYS OMEN - Hope Dies cover
http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/miserys-omen/hope-dies" rel="nofollow - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/miserys-omen/hope-dies
 
My review is below:
 
Hope Dies is the debut full-length studio album by Australian black metal act Misery´s Omen. The album was released in February 2008 by Worship Him Records.

The basis in the music on this album is black metal, but calling this a regular black metal album would be anything but fair. There are both doomy sections, progressive/ experimental sections, mellow folk sections, beautiful acoustic sections and even a track that sounds like Sigh has been invived into the studio. I´m of course thinking of the handclap section in Fiendish Ghoul. I can´t help thinking about Sigh every time I hear that track. The heavy doomy parts of the album remind me of Dance of December Souls (1993) by Katatonia. The opening title track is probably the best example of that part of Misery´s Omen´s sound but also a track like A Cobbled Path. The album is generally very melodic and some parts make me think of Dissection. But then a track like the chaotic and at times even technical And the Stars Bled really confuse me. This is truly an eclectic metal album. This might be a problem for some people but even though the album is very eclectic in nature it´s thankfully also very consistent, which means that even though the songs vary in style you´re never in doubt that it´s the same band that wrote the songs. I find the adventurous approach to songwriting a real treat.

The band is a three-piece but guitarist/ vocalist Arganoth Doom often plays harmonies. The musicianship is excellent on the album and I´d like to give a special mention to bassist D.E.M.O.N.. His playing on Hope Dies is varied, melodic and quite adventurous. It´s seldom you´ll hear bass being such a vital part of a black metal band´s sound.

The production is powerful and raw ( not lo-fi) but especially the bass gives the sound a lot of warmth and earthy atmosphere. All in all the album is very well produced.

Hope Dies has been a very positive surprise for me and I can highly recommend the album to fans of progressive and adventurous black metal with a doomy edge. A 4 star rating is fully deserved.

Fantastic thrash album from the underrated as a whole Japan thrash scene. Raw and biting, but with fantastic songwriting and no shortage of hooks.

I would recommend everyone to check out the monstrous first EP by UK sludge/death band Conjurer.  It will only take 23 minutes of you valuable time Wink

I hope you enjoy

I haven't listened to this in so long to say anything really specific about it now, but I have an old review which may be used for reference. They are an Icelandic atmospheric black metal act. I was still writing for my old site Heavy Metal Haven back when I reviewed this and just to show how small the world is one of my moderators used to be in a band with the two guys in Dynfari. I remain the only rating for this on MMA. I should revisit it myself.

An unfortunately often forgotten industrial metal classic from the 90's. A straight-to-the-point industrial thrash banger of an album.

Surprised that I'm the only one to have rated this excellent slab of old school death metal. Their best I'd say though my recollection of the first 2 is dim. Going to have to check them out again now.

Another one I haven't played since review, but I obviously liked it a lot as I gave it 4.5 stars.

^is that an album cover or promotional art for a 2005 Need for Speed game? LOL

A fairly recent addition, but I am the only rater as of now, so:

These guys blew my mind when I first heard them. Amazing bass-driven post-hardcore that's heavy, has personality, attitude, and is a lot of fun. It's like if The B-52's got really pissed off.

It's a bit different, but definitely worth a listen.

I will give the above albums a listen and report back.

As Bosh was kind enough to also add this for me, try this.  Don't let the album cover fool you.  It's a double album and the first disc does NOT sound how it looks.

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/acrostichon/engraved-in-black" rel="nofollow - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/acrostichon/engraved-in-black

One of my absolute favorite death metal albums. Perfectly blends both the slow doom and thrashy groove sides of death metal. Immolation of the Agnostic in particular transitions perfectly from its death-doom intro to a great hook, definitely in my top 10 death metal songs.

Great album from these doom merchants from The Faroe Isles. Not quite as strong as it's follow up but a great debut nevertheless including a stunning vocal performance from guest Eivør Pálsdóttir.

It´s so sad how the great has fallen Cry. From Danzig 5 and onwards there has been very few highlights worth mentioning.
