Okay this isn't working. Reviewing the albums as I normally do is becoming difficult, not least because so many are extreme metal ones, and how much can you write about them? I found the ATG review difficult, even though I loved the album; hard to keep finding different things to say about tracks that, essentially, kind of sound mostly quite similar.

Besides, why should I do those sort of reviews of these albums? Chances are most of you know them backwards anyway. So instead what I'll do is a general, quite short comments thing - no more track-by-track - and say what I think about the album. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't, but trying to review these in my usual style definitely is not, so let's try it this way.

Back later.

I've learned that if you try to set your own boundaries as far as how you write etc, it gets in the way of the most important part - creativity. Nothing wrong with short few word reviews. Sometimes it can even be better to get the point across right away. I just do with how I feel at the time. Sometimes I'll do track by track, sometimes it's a few words. As long as you're passionate about it, anything you write will be good

Yeah, you have a point there, Key. I just find it harder and harder to write something other than "punishing guitar riffs", "screaming solos", "hammering drumbeat" etc etc when in some of these albums that's often all there is, so I'll look at other ways to review. TBT tends to restrict and compartmentalise the writing too much in some cases, and certainly it's the case here.

Then maybe just do a few loose observations on the album as a whole - even if its gonna be "the songs sound pretty standard for this sort of metal".
