Your Move - Discussion thread

Here's a thread for the sake of keeping the discussion and voting separate.

Thank you Kep for this thread. Wonderful idea to keep the main game clutter free. Your choices for Tooth & Claw, Thunderstorms and Headbanging Heaven are literally some of my own choices. And the choice of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret cracked a huge fucking grin on my face. Sugar and spice, isn't it nice?

Pure Filth has me leaning towards Infester, Naked Whipper and Dragged Into Sunlight on first thought. I must give everything a fresh listen though.

Wildchild, that Semilanceata is a personal favorite and it took me by surprise to see it mentioned. Wonderful call!

Progbass, it never really crossed my mind to use Obliveon's From This Day Forward for Memories From Another World but god damn does it hit the nail on the head! Such a bizarre yet familiar beast. It has obtusely strange qualities yet an air of familiarity... much like memories from another world would be, no?

Hoodoo Man if Forest Poetry was not used at least once in Tooth & Claw I was going to be incredibly disappointed.

Heavy Load was mentioned twice which is only appropriate for a proper Metal forum.

Emenius, I am very much looking forward to trying Vassafor (Obsidian Codex) and Gontyna Kry (Welowie) both which are new to me. *coughpmlinkcough*

Satanic Royalty showed up twice because it's one of the better thing HHR has done in their career.

As far as House of Ecstasy goes, NOT NEARLY enough Akercocke! Props Born Headless.

Good luck men. There are a few albums some of you picked that I considered using for my own ends, and for that, I applaud you! May the best man win, and if not, at least we will all listen to some good fukking metal!

Aye I would of loved to have him here.

I noticed some really fantastic choices among the chosen, and plenty of the albums were ones I considered using. This will be a trip. I'll have to listen to the ones I haven't heard first and brush up on the ones I'm familiar with after.

Yeah, this should be a good time. Tons of new albums, and a few returning classics.

Side note, anytime I get to listen to Vast Oceans I take it.

Some great choices from all of you, I must say.

I had to go with Soft Cell, because really, is there anything more sleazy than Sex Dwarf? I almost went with DÝdsengel's Imperator for the Memories From Another World, but I decided to introduce you lot to Cult Of Fire, because I can't at least remember anyone mentioning them before.

Vast Oceans Lachrymose was frankly a bit of a hasty choice. I think it suits the theme though, because what I see is a tempest. But not a tempest of despair and hopelessness, but a tempest of ordeal and challenge that is to be overcome. That's what While Heaven Wept sounds to me.



So, does this round last until January? I can't imagine everyone listening to all of those albums in a week.

This match will last as long as it needs to during the month of January. We will see about setting a more cemented time limit for future matches as we realize what type of momentum we are dealing with here.

I am not surprised at House of Ecstasy's apparent niche request. I purposely wanted one unorthodox theme in this set of matches and may continue the tradition in future battles.

The first time I did that it was an all nighter with a brutal thunderstorm, and I decided that since I had nothing better to do, I might as well sit on my porch at 4:30 AM and listen to De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and just watch the rain. It was incredible.

Forest Poetry was the one that instantly appeared in my mind as I read that theme. There was no way I could choose anything else.

As others have said above, quite a few of the albums people chose were ones I considered too, but there are a lot up there that I haven't heard, so I'm looking forward to hearing them.

I thought more people would choose norwegian black metal albums for thunderstorms though.

Edit: While I remember, a quick point. I'm assuming we're not supposed to vote for our own choices, but if another person chooses the same thing as you and you honestly think it is the best choice after hearing all the others, can you still vote for it?

My criticism lies in the number of themes, really. 77 albums to go through is a lot. Of course probably all of us are familiar with a certain number of albums beforehand, but it's still a plenty.


EDIT: Make that 84.
