Listening to Blaze Bayley's third solo album "Blood & Belief" from 2004. (Got it in the mail last week, but didn't get around to listening to it until today).

Somewhat less "maidenish" than his previous two solo albums, but nevertheless still quite well written.


This was another early Andy Sneap production. At the time, Sneap was producing/engineering/mixing albums from Arch Enemy (Wages of Sin, Anthems of Rebellion, Doomsday Machine), Kreator (Violent Revolution, Live Kreation, Enemy of God), Exodus (Tempo of the Damned), Nevermore (Dead Heart in a Dead World, This Godless Endeavor, The Year of the Voyager). This was years before he was producing albums by Accept, Judas Priest, Saxon, Megadeth, Testament, Cradle of Filth (Thornography, Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder), etc ...

It appears Blaze owns all his solo albums. His first four solo albums (three studio, one live) were originally released on Steamhammer/SPV back in 2000-2004.

This third solo album cd copy I got, has a 2021 date on the back cover and was released by "Blaze Bayley Recordings" which is his own label.

Listening to Sodom's first ep "In The Sign of Evil". After not listening to it in years, I just realized how sloppy the playing is. I found my old metalblade vinyl version in storage

The guitar player's timing is kinda off. (ie. Grave Violator). If I didn't know any better, the guitar overdubs sound like it was done in one/two takes without any attention to accuracy.

In contrast on Persecution Mania, Blackfire sounds like he put a lot of effort into getting the timing tight on all the guitar tracks.

Listening to the recent Sodom album with all the re-recorded songs. One song which stood out was "Sepulchral Voice" originally on the first ep "in the sign of evil".


The original 1985 version had its own "charm" in terms of sloppy musicianship and really simplistic writing.







In contrast the 2022 re-recording sounds almost "lifeless" with the modern technical studio perfection.

Sodom was very sloppy and primitive (part of their charm) until Frank Blackfire joined starting with the Expurse of Sodomy EP, which took the band to a whole other level. Although early Sodom is now considered a big influence on black metal, back in the day music reviewers treated the band as a joke until Blackfire got on board, at which point they started to be taken more seriously. I like both eras of the band.

I can only speak of what I have listened from start to finish.

Kreator - Hate Uber Alles
Saxon - Carpe Diem
The Big Deal - First Bite



Of these titles, the only one which had repeated listenings was The Big Deal. (I first encountered this band after coming across their cover of ABBA's "Gimme Gimme Gimme A Man After Midnight" on youtube).

Saxon I only listened to once. Kreator I listened to several times.

I dont mind it when they do it everyonce in awhile, but doing it the whole song just makes it sound like ass. I love Pantera and wish i could find something like them again. Over the past couple of years have turned towards punk a little more, but i like still crossing back over into metal every once and awhile
Didn't realize my first comments on this thread were from 08 and this was my view at the time. Kinda funny, almost all the bands I love now use guttural vocals. I remember this time period, I was transitioning from really only listening to nu metal, early thrash, alt metal, a new wave of American heavy metal to listening to genres outside metal.

While I never really stopped listening to metal it wasnít until 2012 that I really got into extreme metal and the various genres.

My metal tastes took a weird turn this year, and I only seem to listen to post rock/post metal anymore. The only 2022 albums that I really liked were:
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Russian Circles

I'm too lazy to make a complete list, but agree about Kvaen's The Great Below, fantastic album, that's my #1 this year. And I've so far bought three band t-shirts from those guys (well, "guy" really) in addition to vinyl and CD versions of the album, I'm happy to throw money at this band.

I also really liked the Grima, White Ward, Arch Enemy and Nite albums. I'll have to check out some of the others you mentioned.

I forgot about that one. Thou is a band that, like The Body, I really only like their stuff when they collaborate with someone else. To include each other, Released From Love/You Whom I Have Always Hated was one of my favorites from 2018.

I saw Primitive Man open for Blood Incantation and those dudes are intense.

I'm looking forward to the upcoming Decibel Magazine tour with Dark Funeral, Cattle Decapitation, Blackbraid (woo-hoo!) and 200 Stab Wounds. I had tix for the 2020 Decibel tour with Mayhem and Abbath, but Covid said a big "no" to that one.

Already got tickets for the Seattle stop. Saw Dark Funeral with Cannibal Corpse a few months ago and really enjoyed their set knowing little about them. Saw 200 Stab Wounds with Obituary but their mix was god awful, hopefully itís better this time. Canít wait to see Cattle Decap for the 5th time and Blackbraid for the first time

It will be my first time seeing all of them (I've been listening to Dark Funeral since 1997 but for some reason never got a chance to see them). Cattle Decap's new album is coming out May 12, so I'll have a couple weeks to absorb it before the Toronto show.

I used to go to the Decibel tour pretty much every year, but that lineup does little for me. The revitalized Milwaukee Metalfest on the other hand .... last time I went was 2002. I'm not a big Jamey Jasta fan, but I can't fault him for bringing it back ...

Yeah, that's a great line up but at this point I can't do a multi-day festival like that, I'm too old. I snagged a balcony seat for the Decibel Toronto show. Balcony because I can't stand on the floor through four bands, and one ticket because I don't know anyone who likes extreme metal. Oh well, the balcony in the venue is small and laid back with it's own bar, and I'm sure I'll meet some cool folks there.

Yea I feel you on that one. I did Maryland Deathfest last year and they brought back the outdoor lot and put most of the bands I wanted to see on that stage. Concreate parking lot baking in the Baltimore sun fried me. I read they aren't doing that with next years fest, which I know bums alot of people out, but I think it is a good thing.

Apparently, Venom approached EMI back in 1980 trying to get signed, and this was what EMI send back to them (NSFW language)
