Default Album Listening Club for the Metal Survivor Thread

This may very well be a futile venture, but I'm gonna give it a shot. There are a lot of categories and albums in the Metal Album Survivor thread, many of which are relatively obscure. Metal n00bs like Justin, Wpnfire, and Briks may very well be left out of the avant garde metal and folk metal battles simply because they haven't heard any of the albums, and maybe some people just need to brush up, so hopefully an album club dedicated to listening to some of those albums will at the very least get them interested in participating.

So, I'll pick an album each week, or week and a half, or two weeks, or whatever is realistic and dedicate it to an album that is more obscure. Then we discuss. I probably won't be doing anything from black metal or grindcore or any of the bigger genres, as they will hopefully take care of themselves. Anyone is welcome to participate, but this is mainly targeted toward the uninitiated.

First up is Nokturnal Mortum's Voice of Steel.





And here's the full list of album battles as they currently stand. They're still subject to change, but I'll make sure that any album used in this thread will be on one of the finalized lists.

Yes. Yes it is. I don't intend to go through it all, just enough to at least get a few more people into some battles they would otherwise ignore.

And the more albums, the longer the Metal Album Survivor thread continues, and the more chance it wins Thread of the Year. Crap. I've said too much.

A lot of these albums are new to me, so it's going to take time for me to vote. I'm already too late for death metal, but I'll state my opinion for fun and no votes.

Just go with the ones I dictate to you, for my word is law. And you're totally not too late for death metal. We're not even halfway done. Nothing says you have to be there from the beginning.

Don't trust Bat, he tried to make Death no longer involved in the battle.

I just have no idea why so many people dig that album. It's alright, but there're so many better ones.

Lol. Don't know who to side with. I have been very busy lately for the past half year with work, but recently I got laid off and my time is back.
