Pretty unique stuff - The Chasm meets Bolt Thrower or something.

Does ‘Gangland’ (apart from sharing a name with a middling Iron Maiden track) completely crib the verse from Deep Purple’s ‘Highway Star’?

I know it’s probably incredibly unhip to listen to Opeth nowadays, but I still really enjoy this record. I still feel it is the time that all their disparate influences really coalesced on record, and they haven’t really reached that since (and at times seemed to actively go in the opposite direction). I also love Jens Brogen’s production.

I think this was the first Testament album I owned, and it still holds a place in my heart. They finally updated their production values, and the lineup changes allowed them to stretch out a bit more. John Tempesta behind the kit really helps (I don’t have anything against Louie’s drumming, but it’s amazing the difference, and considering in subsequent years they’ve had guys like Gene Hoglan, Dave Lombardo, and Paul Bostaph, they’ve really changed with the times). James Murphy’s leads are quite tasty, and just as well, as Skolnick I really like for his sensibilities.

Winding the evening down with some familiar, easy listening.

I still think this is up there with Static Tensions, but I would concede they don’t really add too much to their formula, just a bit of refinement. ‘Don’t Look Back’ uplifts me though.

It's a good album; you can tell the guys jammed a lot (and probably watched several horror movies during their breaks), but I'm not crazy about it; the faster parts aren't that exciting to me.

Sounds like Realm of Chaos / Warmaster era Bolt Thrower.

The best death metal EP ever as far as I'm concerned!

So far I'm getting reminded of Morbid Angel, Dismember as well as some of the more melodic death/black stuff that originates from Sweden. Pretty decent stuff.

Less cavernous than their early death metal stuff.
