This morning we, over breakfast, were having a chat about the fact that the rescheduled Megadeth/Slayer Tour of Canada will have both bands playing their 1990s albums Rust In Peace and Seasons In The Abyss, in entirety. I then got thinking about metal albums from that year. Here is my list of 10 favourite albums from that year.

Alice in Chains – Facelift
Annihilator – Never, Neverland
Anthrax – Persistence of Time
Celtic Frost – Vanity/Nemesis
Death – Spiritual Healing
Iced Earth – Iced Earth
Judas Priest – Painkiller
Megadeth – Rust In Peace
Pantera – Cowboys from Hell
Slayer – Seasons in the Abyss

8 out of 10 of the above albums are featured on Spotify, here is the playlist – http://open.spotify.com/user/toxicmusic79/playlist/5h1SRJY8SkmPWeI0Y1rQTC

Better have something for the pain!

If you like your death metal with face-smashing and kick-ass brutality then Annotations Of An Autopsy’s latest, The Reign Of Darkness, will not fail to deliver. It’s tight, groovy, very heavy, with changes in pace and dynamics, and of course, the obligatory dose of mental drumming. I particularly like the melodic twists and turns used to break up and provide contrast to some of the more crushing sections and the way the vocal delivery and tone sits perfectly with the brutality of the music.
