I fucking LOVE this band. Can’t wait to give this a listen later.
“Revelations this one!”
PP – exactly! There are very few bands for whom I feel that is enough. Maiden is one. This write-up is amazing and, man, did it bring me back to 13 year old me, but…MAIDEN!!!!!! See I couldn’t even finish my thought.
I get it too and don’t disagree necessarily (notice the little emoticon thingy). However, “Iron fucking Maiden” is my response.
Good day, sirs.
“These guys are really awesome, and have written some of the greatest songs of all time” is what you meant to write there. :-)
I came to say pretty much the same thing. Powerslave is tops for me but can’t argue with this list. And I too would slide Brave New World up a notch. Thank you for this!
I like your list better. Kudos for including Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine and 300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues. Two of my favorites.
I was scrolling and thought (after seeing the, IMO, lackluster Xothist) “they better include Fluisteraars and Jute Gyte”. That Fluisteraars album is, indeed, one of the most out-of-left-field mindblowers I have heard in a long time. Simply stunning.
Great write-ups. That Morbus Chron is going to own my headspace the way Tribulation did last year. I just know it.
Agreed. The Hives new album will be called Beezus. You’re welcome.
And yes, I’m aware that I’m extremely late to the (pizza) party.
Lighten up, Francis.
