The 7" single has landed in the door.....

Sounds great, very interesting.

I do like a lot of Bruce's solo stuff.

Quote from: Ducky on November 30, 2023, 12:59:49 AMBeen doing the "Spotify Wrapped" thing this evening, so in third place, Enya - "Watermark", Depeche Mode - "Black Celebration", and Revocation - "Netherheaven".

Black Celebration is just fantastic all the way through

Yep, peak Depeche Mode to my lugs.

The run from Black Celebration to Songs of Faith and Devotion is a whopper.

I'd go one farther back and throw Some Great Reward in there too but they fell off a bit after Songs of Faith and Devotion for sure. A couple of very good ones after that, Playing the Angel and Memento Mori are great but the rest is OK to terrible. Have you tried Some Great Reward at all? It's right up there

Yeah that's fair, Some Great Reward is a whopper too.

I haven't actually given Momento Mori a fair shake yet, might remedy that later.

Quote from: Black Shepherd Carnage on November 30, 2023, 10:15:20 PMYeah, listening back to the albums isn't at all helping narrow this down haha

It's okay though, a prick mate just messaged me "Best intro to a song?" so now I'm agonizing over that instead  :laugh:  :abbath:

"Monarch of the Sleeping Marches" by Disincarnate is my go-to for this  :abbath:

That's already better than anything off Tyranny of Souls, and I fairly enjoyed that album.

I've always enjoyed it, but I think the older I get the more I come around to the thought that The Chemical Wedding is the best record that Dickinson (and Smith) was ever involved in.

Agreed. I skipped the Pestilence ones when I ripped it, and cut out the Carcass ones (apart from the first one, but I made it a separate track, and added the TOTT B-sides at the end), much better listening experience.

I agree with this. It's my least-played Carcass record, when it should be my most.

See also - Pestilence's Testimony of the Ancients. At least they had the good grace to make the interludes seperate tracks (at least on whichever CD of it I have).
