Your Favorite Bands' Best and Worst Albums
Sometimes I don't really know what to look for when shopping for metal music. I think we all can relate to looking at the options between several different CDs by one band and saying, "Which one would I like best?". So (even though something similar to this has probably been posted before) I figured this could be a thread for metalhead shoppers to check out when curious about particular bands that we like and which CDs are best and which should be avoided.

To kick off the discussion, what should I get from Obituary, Carcass, and Death?

MetalThrashingMad 2006-04-15 13:00

In this order:

Death - Human, Symbolic

Obituary - Cause of Death, The End Complete

Carcass - Heartwork, Necroticism


Transient 2006-04-15 13:09

this is exceedingly broad

best from

immolation - unholy cult
suffocation- pierced from within
malevolent creation-retribution

and their worst

immolation-harnessing ruin
suffocation-breeding the spawn
malevolent creation - stillborn

i agree with this statement.

JOAMdude 2006-04-15 18:11

U kno walpurgis i think folow the reaper is just too synthy
i like HCDRoll better cuz it is so CATCHY and the chorus to YBoffDead

walpurgis 2006-04-15 18:15

I really like most of Follow the Reaper, Hatebreeder as well. I listened to Hatecrew Deathroll maybe three times through and didn't like hardly any of it, so I never tried to get myself to like it more. You're Better Off Dead I've never heard, or anything else of theirs that I didn't just mention.

really??? no reign in blood?? no south of heaven??

walpurgis 2006-04-15 18:20

I've only heard a couple songs on South of Heaven, and Reign in Blood got annoying to me after a while. Normally if I'm listening to older Slayer, it's the stuff on Decade of Aggression.

travI56669 2006-04-15 18:30

I can't believe what you guys are saying about Reinvinting the Steel, that CD kicks ass.... You just gotta realize that it's a more mature CD than most of their other CDs, I didn't like it when I bought but it's grown on me and I love it now.... :homer:

walpurgis 2006-04-15 18:37

I'm not saying I don't like it. I just don't like it anywhere nearly as much as the rest of their albums, unless you count the glam pre cowboys shit, which was terrible.
