Shit, I was meant to comment on this sooner. It's a very good album and definitely beats the last two works from them. Reign of Terror and On the Way to Ainor are the highlights.

Just gave it a listen.

In my opinion, it's their best album. None of the pretentious, folksy garbage like on Triumph or Agony, and none of the boring filler like on their earlier albums.

I don't care who the next horseman is as long as they do their job and I can bend them to my will. I.E., the next horseman will automatically incur the nickname of Millhouse. So I say it, so it shall be done. Don't get it twisted. >=(

Personally, I think Dawn of Victory is their best album and it's hard to top that. The lack of ballads made it feel stronger and kept up the pace. The only complaint I can make for that album is that little girl going "La la la la laaaa" at the start of Trolls in the Dark. I mean, what's the point of that? Still, The Frozen Tears of Angels is high up, possibly on par with Power of the Dragonflame.

None of the pretentious, folksy garbage like on Triumph or Agony, and none of the boring filler like on their earlier albums.

I actually like Triumph or Agony. It may have been less metal but it was still enjoyable nonetheless. As for the boring fillers, I can relate that to Symphony of Enchanted Lands. I know this is the album with Emerald Sword but after Eternal Glory, I feel the album loses itself. Some songs could have been good such as The Dark Towers of Abyss but they're poorly structured IMO.

Another good call.
Whoever mentioned High on Fire was bob on too really. I think I'm the only person who doesn't care for them.
Wintersun too everyone seems to bum..... urrgh.

Not that I have anything against them two for not being interested in those bands.

I do :P.

A slang term for metalcore. Emo kids in malls tend to listen to metalcore, hence the term.

It also applies to nu-metal, too, like Disturbed and Slipknot. Basically it's any "heavy" music that people listen to to be hardcooaaaar. It's not really as applicable as it once was, now, because everyone (in my experience) has dropped Disturbed and Slipknot and Korn in favor of shitty deathcore bands like Bring me the Horizon and The Devil Wears Prada and A Day to Remember if they want to feel hardcore.

I love Agent Steel. I think they are an extremely underrated thrash/speed metal band. My personal favorite is Alienigma, but Skeptics Apocalypse is awesome as well.

In my opinion, Nev or Brucie should get the nomination solely due to their seniority.

I say we keep Ghoul as a horseman. If any of you guys listened to his cover of Moonlight Sonata you wouldn't even think about voting him out.

Heh, I've been curious about them and if I try their songs again and enjoy them, I may have to get their latest album.

I've tried some songs off Skeptics Apocalypse but I can't seem to enjoy them that much. Maybe another try is needed but it's no Unstoppable Force for me.

But I think Nev pretty much got it... he had something like 4 or 5 votes.
What we would need is that our two most active horsemen officially name the next horseman to replace Ghoul.

Yeah, so why should we keep him? Even if he's a nice guy, if he doesn't even post once or twice a year, it's kind of useless to have an horseman that isn't active.

Haha, good for you. Early Metallica is basically Blitzkrieg (UK) with better production. They never really were an original band. Slayer are posers, Anthrax is alright, and Dave whines too much for me to ever consider listening to Megadeth.

I dunno. While I liked Dawn of Victory, Holy Thunderforce especially, I thought that the melodies in places were a little off, like they could have been better if they'd changed a note here or there. It's really nitpicky to complain about such a great album, but I don't see any of that on Frozen Tears of Angels. Still, I can see why people would prefer Dawn of Victory.

The only complaint I can make for that album is that little girl going "La la la la laaaa" at the start of Trolls in the Dark. I mean, what's the point of that?

It gives it a more fantasy story feel to it, I guess. Which isn't really necessary considering it's a fantasy story in music form anyway.

None of the pretentious, folksy garbage like on Triumph or Agony, and none of the boring filler like on their earlier albums.
I actually like Triumph or Agony. It may have been less metal but it was still enjoyable nonetheless.

True. I think that some of the not so heavy tracks sort of blend together. They're not really memorable. Except Silent Dream, which I weirdly think of as being both a filler track and completely fucking awesome.

As for the boring fillers, I can relate that to Symphony of Enchanted Lands. I know this is the album with Emerald Sword but after Eternal Glory, I feel the album loses itself.

I can't really comment on that, as I've never listened to any songs from it apart from Emerald Sword.

I bet it's because you're Canadian.

Also, I think the new Horseman should be Duff, on account of his experience in arguing with teenagers and all-around cuddliness.

Thanks for all the love.

I also had a dream a few nights ago, in my dreams, Tony Levin and Ron Jarzombeck were in a band together. I can't remember the name of the drummer though.

I think these guys could make awesome music together. I like dreams like that :P

If you consider Youthanasia, Cryptic Writings, and Risk to be competent albums, especially Risk.

Youthanasia is pretty good. Cryptic Writings... I've never been a big fan o this one and Risk is shit.

But Youthanasia as at least 4 or 5 very good songs, the other songs being pretty decent, I would say this is still an enjoyable album.

Anyway... that's just my opnion...

they were all kind of good. Rust In Peace is still my favorite and it's not an album like Youthanasia that's ever going to make me doubt it... but you really can't say Youthanasia was a BAD album...

I agree. Megadeth had a better "bad" era, whereas I think if you take the classic stuff, Metallica had better stuff. Master of Puppets or So Far, So Good, So What? Ride The Lightning or Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? Granted, all of Megadeth's classic stuff is great, but I still think overall Metallica had a better classic era.
