I'm not the biggest fan of Sodom, but the bass really had to the atmosphere in Persecution Mania:


Also, unpopular thought, M-16 is probably their best album and does a much better job at depicting war and its horrors than One (even tho I'm an autist for comparing a concept album to a song).

This band was the first metal band I actually listened to. I discovered them on the bandcamp app. They grew on me after a few listens.

Anyone here into The Gathering?

Their early discography was a product of Netherlands Death/Doom scene, but bringing on Anneke van Giersbergen as their lead singer marked a turning point in their career. By the time "How to Measure a Planet" was release, they were no longer a Metal band, but those transitional years were fascinating.

I personally like "Mandylion" much better than "Nighttime Birds". I guess it's a case of knowing what to expect softens the impact, but for whatever reason, that album was weaker than the predecessor.

Anyway, here are some highlights:

Hey you all go. I present to you what is probably one of the best hidden gems within the American underground metal scene. Slick song writing, crunchy riffs, doesn't overstay its welcome, and the bass player is a unicorn.

Sad news hit the metal world today, as Warrel Dane, singer of Sanctuary and Nevermore, passed away at the age of 48, apparently from a heart attack.

Warrel burst onto the metal scene in 1988 with Sanctuary’s well-regarded debut, Refuge Denied. His powerful voice, unbelievable range and larger-than-life persona made him one of metal’s most intriguing characters and the flag bearer for the next wave of classic metal.

It was with his second band, Nevermore that Warrel achieved major metal notoriety, taking the traditional style of Sanctuary in more progressive, thoughtful directions. Albums like Dead Heart in a Dead World and This Godless Endeavor blazed exciting and new trails and became the influence for the countless progressive metal acts that followed.

Making things even more depressing, Warrel was working on his first solo album in 10 years at the time of his passing. Whether this material will ever see the light of day is anyone’s guess at this point.

Godspeed, Warrel. We thank you for your voice and the music you gave us over your 3-plus decades in the metal music business. Rest in peace, friend.
