My Dying Bride - I Am the Bloody Earth EP.

Would Fear Factory's Concrete have a home here? I know it was put out as an album in the end but I still think of it more as the traded curio from before then.

Jesu's Heartache EP. Or Sunrise/Sunset.


I would say that "I Am The Bloody Earth" is probably my least preferred of My Dying Bride's 90's EPs. "Turn Loose The Swans" is their best release. "Demanufacture" is Fear Factory's best release in my opinion. I would go with Jesu's self-titled album too.

Babyteeth and Pleasure Death? The latter was where I got on board with them, it's definitely in their top two releases (on a par with Troublegum IMO).

A 7", if memory serves. I think Innocent X might have been the B-side.

A sure sign that I'm getting (or have gotten) old, I still think of everything post-Pleasure Death as 'new'.

Edit: No, it was Punishment Kiss on the B-side.

Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales
Ride - Today Forever
Suffocation - Human Waste (close between this, Effigy of the Forgotten and Pierced from Within)
X Japan - Art of Life
Jesu - Silver (haven't listened to Jesu all that much, seems like a few of their best releases are EPs)
Fleshgod Apocalypse - Mafia

X Japan & Fleshgod Apocalypse are good examples but I don't agree with the others.

Yeah I'd pay that one but "Psalm 69" is their best studio release.

Another good call. I'm still mystified by the decision to cut Breathe and The Land Of Rape And Honey from the album, both excellent versions. Biafra's arsing about is no loss, however.

Yes that's right. I think Meat Abstract was an EP too perhaps? It's been a while.

I very nearly chose the Hats Off To The Insane EP, but Troublegum is better than all.

Itself a compilation of a couple of other EPs, but I suppose it still counts. Caucasian Psychosis could get FMV's vote in that case.

First came to mind is Mundanus Imperium (Nattefal). Still love the demo but the album's highlight is a Rainbow cover.

Affinity is by far the best thing Haken have done

None that I can think of. I would've probably said Lacuna Coil back in the day, but not anymore.

Maybe In Flames' Subterranean.

Raw and aggressive, but Colony, The Jester Race, and Whoracle are better.

I'd even say Clayman and Reroute to Remain, but they were IF becoming another band.

Jester was a let down in 96 if you were already into the band. See Whalen's review from the time in T. But over time I guess it is better, but I.F became too sterile for their own good after Whoracle

"The Jester Race" is their best work for mine.

It was a letdown at the time whether you'd heard them or not. Decidedly average album. Still probably the best thing they've released, in fairness.

Sorry mate! :D

The Jester Race is a front loaded album. The first 3 tracks are incredible, but what I didn't like was how At The Gates influenced it sounded at times, whereas their previous work, particularly Subterranean, had a more original sound. It took a few listens to get used to.

Unfortunately my original copy of Subterranean got stolen years ago and I never bothered with the reissue. My Jester Race was stolen too but I replaced that. One of the bonus tracks on the reissue is actually better than most of the songs on the album. i.e the awkwardly titled Goliaths Disarm Their Davids.
