The Acacia Strain - Failure Will Follow
80
Contrary to its sister album, this one is a slow burner and I would argue the emotions it carries in the slow, doomy passages that are interspersed with their sludgy metalcore trademark sound can't really be described as simply anger and hate as usual. This shows a somewhat multifaceted personality that's been present in their music for a while now. As a curiosity and to take the comparisons with the other LP even further, there is even a neat visual contrast in the tracklist (here, the titles ... read more
The Acacia Strain - Step into the Light
80
The Acacia Strain doing what they do best, that being of course pounding your ass for a little over 23 minutes straight. They have been incorporating sludge influence into the void of bleakness that is their music since DL left, and this project truly feels like a culmination point for them.
Wormrot - Hiss
85
Chaos is great when it's controlled chaos and this is is a fine example. It's such a delicacy. It's so tasteful, textured, and yet so relentless, powerful and even uplifting. Absolutely incredible for a genre that I find somewhat one-dimensional.
Anthrax - Fistful of Metal
70
Akin to their piers, Anthrax's debut is packed with NWOBHM influence, as the genre they would popularize was still in its embryonic stage. It's probably not even that controversial to say this is purely speed metal, considering today's standards. Regardless of classification, this stands as a good debut, with some tight instrumentation, especially the soloing. However, I do agree Joey's characteristic vocals do give this band a whole lot of charisma.
Slayer - Diabolus in Musica
55
Slayer tries to keep up with the times, incorporating nu-metal influence into their sound, achieving moderate success. Ultimately, a more interesting record than its predecessor, though it inherits some of its sins, namely the awful production work on the drums and the excessive use of voice filters.

Hey Silver! I’m making a list of AOTY’s favorite subgenres and I would love to hear your favorite. Just list the subgenre, pick 1 album that represents the genre, and if you feel like it write a blurb describing the genre or why you like it. Thanks!

Sorry, it's just I'm not as familiar with most of the rock musicians you enjoy, other than Wormrot & Turnstile (as well as the true classics like Iron Maiden).

Nice to find another Denzel Curry & Kendrick Lamar fan, as well as some interesting Rock / Metal choices.

Earned a follow for that.

Not their best, not their worst. I didn’t hate it, but it certainly won’t be my go-to Megadeth album anytime soon. Mostly forgettable and following their formula to the point that there weren’t any pleasant surprises or anything. Just another Megadeth album essentially

Thanks for letting me know. I think you were referring to the delete button when editing a list, but let me know if there's another place that you're seeing this.

Silver is the most underrated character on the Sonic franchise. Really hated how SEGA treated him, just because '06 was trash doesn't mean that everything on that game was trash, Silver was in fact, great.
