Favorite Albums! – Why, I feel like a child in a sweet shop! There is so much I love, so many I want to include and it is a fact that I am totally incapable of reducing the list to a mere top ten… Ooh No no No No no … It’s like trying to ask me what my favorite movie is, or book, or Marvel character, or Pokemon …
So far my musical list has surpassed the total of 30 and I keep thinking of more to add … I’m so NOT sorry, I’m in my element and I’m bubbling around like a dizzy school girl, I almost think I could finish the last 264 days of the year blogging about how awesome music is with very little effort – except I’m not a music blogger and I’m awful at reviews, beyond … “THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!” Which doesn’t make for stimulating reading!
Yesterday I introduced you to three albums that were entangled with my teenage years and growing up, so where do I go from here? I’m tempted to jump head first with my five favorite ‘Death Metal‘ albums … Because, why not?
(in no particular order)
Hypocrisy – Abducted – 1996
Vader – The Beast – 2004
Bloodbath – Nightmares Made Flesh – 2004
Six Feet Under – Haunted – 1995
Kataklysm – Shadows & Dust – 2002
If you’re ears have stopped bleeding now, I promise I’ll pick something a little more peaceful tomorrow (maybe) … You have no idea how difficult it felt to narrow this sub-genre down into just five albums, the more I think about who I’ve seen live and which festivals I’ve attended, I could keep adding and keep adding. I think when a particular form of music becomes part of your life, every new album, each new band transforms into a new favorite.
Listening back over these tracks, brings back good memories of a very different me – evidence that, there are elements of positives which might be found within years which hold negative memories. In other words – even in shit, you can still find glitter!!
