Sabbath might top them in the riff department (not to take anything away from Jerusalem's sweet riffs), but this definitely out jams them at least. Some of the guitar here can compete with that rumble most definitely, and there's a great display of fast and hard drumming

Man I love this album so much, can't stop listening and it's on a quick path to being a mainstay in my heart

Must give that a listen soon. Hated XXX so much, but given that Wetton has now passed on, I guess I owe it to him to hear his last contribution to the band he helped found.

I have to admit that I've probably never listened to any of his albums besides the self-titled.
Is this one as awesome?

different beasts but yes most definitely. This one is solely an ambient album.

I have a difficult time picking a favorite of his bm albums - Schattengang, Nacht, Winterkalte and Paysage d'Hiver are all so god damn good. But Die Festung would be high on my list all time favorite albums (if such a list was possible for me) so it takes the cake for the best of the bunch imo

this is one of the most musically varied/experimental and I love it a lot



Einsamkeit is my fav for ambient

Keen to listen but it's been 42 Celsius here for the last two days, maybe I'll wait a few months

if Filosofem were recorded in the late 60s/early 70s, it'd be this. Plus long form guitar suites so fuzzy they often slip into bouts of Sonic Youthy indiscernible noise. Simplistic drum patterns and basslines pound away while these supremely distorted guitars buzzsaw all kinds of sickness.

Hector Zazou's Geologies:

(couldn't find the full album on the youtube)

Revisiting this one as well:

I've fallen completely in love with 1960s Haitian jazz and Compas recently.

Kansas - Drastic Measures (1983)

A lot of people **** on Kansas once the 80's came around, but this record was an excellent slice of New Wave / Power Pop / AOR crossover. John Elefante is the best vocalist the band has ever had and some songs are straight up brilliant ('Mainstream', 'Everybody's My Friend').





Overkill - The Grinding Wheel (2017)

A lengthier release than what I usually expect out of these stalwarts, but at times they come very close to classics like Under The Influence. Overall, good modern thrash.
