Basically what I'm trying to say is, nigga diz be some good shit.


Welcome to my opinion, take a seat.

Like I said, it's a good album but nothing mind-blowing or anything. I enjoy it but there are way more trad. bands that I prefer.

Care to explain why? Just saying that "it's good but not great" doesn't make it very clear what your opinion really is.

Sure, i've got time.

I think the main reason that I call them "good but not great" is simply because that's how it is. There's nothing particularly bad about it but there's nothing special either. Like I say, I do like them... but they fail to excite me or keep me hooked. Firstly, I find the production annoying. I know it's not their fault but it's just annoying... not that bad but annoying. I think a lot of it is fairly generic... particularly some of the melodies. Just a quick example since it's the song i'm listening to now.. the first riff is unbearably silly. The melodies are dull and unmemorable largely. Most importantly though, the vocals are bad. They're like Pentagram but just not as fitting.. they sound drained, weak and unconvincing. Of course these are just negative aspects. Overall it's a good album.

Only thing I can agree on is the production.
I simply love the interplay between the guitars and the bass, some of the best I've heard, and so early, too.

Also, hot damn. I LOVE Pentagram.

Definitley considering KIT next year solely for Satan and Brocas Helm, not to mention Enforcer and Vektor playing. Assuming i can fit it into my final year of university timetable it should be affordable.

Quite dull, gloomy vocals for both of them. It just so happens that Pentagram's vocals fit the music well.

Man are you listening to the same band? Brian Ross's vocals are pure high and full of power.... nothing really gloomy about them...

Exact same reasoning as me


Dont forget, Sacrifice (Can) are playing too!

The tone is dull and uncharasmatic in my opinion.

I always found his vocals to be rather relaxing when he's using his lower range and not breaking into falsettos, pretty unique sound to his voice.

Honestly, I'm trying to see your reasoning, but I can't see any comparison between Satan and Pentagram as logical. They're nothing alike. I know you're trying to point out the dullness in the vocals, but I just don't hear it. It's energetic if anything...

I sure as hell wouldn't want the vocals any different. Lord knows how easily I get sick of whiney vocals like Bruce Dickinson. The vocals have energy and power without becoming nut-bustingly annoying. Okay, Bruce isn't that bad, but still.

The vocals.. just the vocals. The vocals sound fairly similar. That's all i've ever said when comparing the two.

One of these bands that everyone in their right mind should know.

Court in the Act is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Buried by time and dust....surely the kings of classic metal reissues at this stage.
