What’s In Your 6-Disc Changer 2: Judgment Day

In September of 2016 I asked y’all, What’s In Your Six-Disc Changer? I know that not everyone has a six disc changer in his or her car, but it makes for a fun discussion topic. Here is the game: which six albums would you keep on your person (car, Walkman, record player, Zune) for the next coupla weeks? For me, it’s which six CD’s do I keep in the car until I get motivated enough to change some – or all – of them out. There are no restrictions of course; but choose wisely, as in mix a few classics in there (or even a crowd-pleaser or two). Here, I’ll show you mine, and then explain each one…

  1. YesFragile (1971). This here was a heckin’ siqq find at a local record store, and for less than five bucks too! Background: I grew up in a household where nerdy bands like Yes and Rush were considered contraband, so as a kid I steered away from them because I was told that “they suck”. (Boy were my parents wrong about that one. Alas, the “nerdy” qualifier holds true.) A few months ago I was introduced to one of the greatest songs ever composed, and so I had to make this album mine. That song? You guessed it, “South Side of the Sky”…
    Either you’re already a Yes fan and own this album, or you’ve never heard of them and are about to have your mind blown (third option: you’re my parents, in which case plz start liking good music). You can find Fragile literally anywhere… or you can head over to Ultimate Classic Rock to see how they rank the band’s discography (it’s high up there). There is a reason that hipsters wear shirts with this album cover on them, it’s because they’re great! For your consideration: candidate for Riff ov Eternity (guitar AND bass) located on “South Side of the Sky” at 0:55.
  2. Dying FetusReign Supreme (2012). Dying Fetus have recently released a new album, and it’s a banger (review coming soon). To help get pumped for Wrong One With Which to Fuck I dug up my old physical copies to listen to over and over again in the car. …Blaring out of the stock Bose component speakers, windows down of course. “The Blood of Power” is one terrific track.
  3. Dying FetusDescend Into Depravity (2008). See above. Another great release by the band (fun fact: this is the first Dying Fetus album I purchased on its release date.) Listen to “Shepherd’s Commandment” if you enjoy death metal which reduces uncomfortable normies to ashes.
  4. AbortedRetrogore (2016). This is a repeat from last time. I’m pretty sure this is in my player because I was intending load up Global Flatline, but the CD was missing from the digipak case 🙁
  5. AuroraEos / Sadiam (1999). Shout out to St. Louis’s Music Record Store who had both Fragile and THIS HERE GEM from Aurora. I wrote a Porcelain Throne article about this Danish melodic death metal band several years ago. They were one of my early college music discoveries, and back then I had tons of difficulty finding all of their music, not only in physical format but also in MP3 (yay for college campus Internet file sharing). And here we are a decade later, I accidentally stumble upon a used copy of the album at a local record store. Huzzah!
  6. Lazer/WulfThe Beast of Left and Right (2014). I always try to keep at least one CD in the car which doesn’t cause uncomfortable normies in the backseat to wretch. With this CD it just so happens to be pretty dang good, and many non-metalheads actually enjoy it! In one of my first blog posts here, I reviewed the album and did a quick interview with the band. I really really really wish they would announce new music, or at least tour in St. Louis (although I cannot blame them for the latter).

So that’s what’s in my car right now, and will be there for another few weeks. Telling you about my collection was only half the fun, I want to know what each of you Disqus people have to say about it. Which six albums are you going to keep on your person for a few weeks? Don’t ruin your list with a bunch of Van Halen or Limp Bizkit. Or do, it’s your call. If you need to borrow any cool CD’s, just let me know.

I’m a Photoshop wizard.

    Yay, Yes!

  • Guppusmaximus

    You don’t have a leg to stand on when discussing all thing Prog if you’ve never listened to ‘Fragile’.

    • well here’s where i might still quality: old Genesis is my jam, as well as Rush. but yes, i am p excited about joining the new world of Yes.

      • The Arm(KJM)

        Some Yes songs…
        Heart Of The Sunrise(saw them do this one circa 1991)
        And You And I
        Close To The Edge
        Ritual
        Sound Chaser
        Gates Of Delirium(THIS FUCKING SONG LISTEN TO IT NOW MOTHERFUCKER NO POWER METAL BAND COMES CLOSE)

  • The Arm(KJM)

    No car, don’t need one.

    Got Fragile, Close To The Edge, Tales, and Yessongs on vinyl.

  • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

    I have a 6 disc changer, and it’s probably one of the main reasons I continue to buy CDs after all these years. Here’s what’s in there today:

    #1: David Bowie – Blackstar (This spot is reserved for my wife – I have no say over this spot as it’s permanently reserved for her.)

    #2: 50 Classic Kid’s Favorites (This spot is reserved for my five-year old daughter – this one is permanently reserved for her car-rides).

    #3: Origin – Unparalleled Universe

    #4: King Goat – Conduit

    #5: Decapitated – Anticult

    #6: Witherscape – The Northern Sanctuary

    • tigeraid

      dat Witherscape.

      • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

        The regular CD hasn’t left the car in a long time, and the full-dynamic range bonus disc is by my home CD player, as the audio quality is darn near perfect on headphones.

    • The Arm(KJM)

      Blackstar>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(ad infinitum)

    • Kyle Reese

      Do you want regular Metalheads to like the six-pounder(tm – bodom) or just to be esoteric as fuck?

  • tigeraid

    That is a very…. confusing combination. I applaud it.

    Uuuuuh lemme think. I’m fresh from Iron Maiden’s stop in Toronto, so there’s a few of those in there. These have been taking up residence for most of the year (and/or when they came out.)

    1. Iron Maiden – Dance of Death (and since it’s not a CD I don’t have to look at the fucking cover.)
    2. Burning Shadows – Truth in Legend
    3. Ex Deo – The Immortal Wars
    4. Paulbearer – Heartless
    5. Below – Upon a Pale Horse
    6. Bolt Thrower – … For Victory

      • i have no opinion of the band, but gorsh dang was that funny

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      Good list is good

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I listened to Heartless yesterday

    • KozmoNaut

      Oooh, Ex Deo! Good choice 🙂

  • Count_Breznak

    Wellll…I guess
    Igorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr – Savage Sinusoid
    Transcend the Realm – Perennial Discoveries
    Coprobaptised Cunthunter – Perservation of Delirious Comprehensiveness
    The Monolith Deathcult – Versus 1
    Animals Killing People – Eat your murder
    Full of Hell – Trumpeting ecstasy

    • Howard Dean

      I’ve been seeing lots of positive stuff about that Coprobaptised Cunthunter in the Slamming Brutal Death Metal group on Facebook. Guess I need to check it out!

      • Count_Breznak

        It’s not your typical slam, it got a lot of goregrind in it (the songs are all under 1:45, too)

  • Howard Dean

    Jimmy my man! This is one of my favorite features, since I actually keep a pile of CDs in my truck at all times. Thug life.

    Current 6-disc changer:

    1. Death Worship – Extermination Mass – [blasting in perpetuity]

    2. Heavy Load – Death or Glory – “The guitar is my swooooord, I’ll fight ’til I diiiiieeeeee

    3. Heavy Load – Stronger Than Evil – “I can hear them caaaaallllliiiiing, caaaallllling across the borders of tiiiiiiiiiiime.” (It’s been a very Heavy Load-heavy couple of months, brother)

    4. The Band – Music From Big Pink – This album is the tits. So tender, much soulful… wow. Disclaimer: Per recent investigative reporting conducted by Odinn, I must disclose that The Band (huehue) that brought you hits like “The Weight,” “Up on Cripple Creek,” and “I Shall Be Released” are potential purveyors of dog-whistle racism and hatred (because they did a book report on Stonewall Jackson once or something).

    5. In Solitude – Sister – This album has been in close rotation for several years now. I just adore it and can’t bring myself to remove it from my truck.

    6. Metal Church – Metal Church – Metal Church’s S/T debut should probably be in your 6-disc changer, too. My fuck is this a great album.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Metal Church’s debut crushes posers.

      IT WAS YOU WHOOAAAAAHOOAAAHOAAAAHOOAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      so i think we’ll do okay.

      • Óðinn

        Actually, I just pointed out that The Band used questionable Dunning School historical theories that are a part of The Lost Cause of the Confederacy (painting the Confederacy as noble and good) in the writing of one song, The Night They Drive Old Dixie Down. This is true. The Band freely admitted it was true. Those theories were popular at the time. I’d guess, if they were to write a song today, it would behave different lyrical themes.

        • The Arm(KJM)

          Writing a song from a historical perspective, however questionable, is not proof that the songwriter actually endorses those views. Just sayin’.

          • Carlos Parlo

            Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson were both pretty anti-racist and (hate to use the word based on the connotations it brings these days) “progressive” anyway.

          • Óðinn

            You’re right. Thanks.

          • The Arm(KJM)

            Yep.

          • Óðinn

            I see. Thanks.

        • you’ve got nothing to explain to me, Odinn. what happens between you and HD is your business.

  • I have an 1,192 disc changer called an iPod in my car and I have all the bangers in my library at my fingertips.

        I remember (circa 2001) the clowns at my local video store posted a sign on their front counter with a quote from a customer that they made fun of for about a week.
        The quote? “The internet is gonna destroy you guys.”

        That store closed permanently the following year after being in business since the late 1980s.

    5. Caligula’s Horse – The Tide, The Thief & River’s End
    6. Steely Dan – Aja

  • Nice features, Jimmymahboi.

    I think that my imaginary six CD changer should have this albums:

    – Novembers Doom: Hamartia.
    – Blind Guardian: Live Beyond the Spheres.
    – Unleash the Archers: Apex.
    – Winds of Leng: Horrid Dominion.
    – Dark Tranquillity: Atoma.
    – Spiritual Beggars: Ad Astra.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      A list I describe as Link’s list.

      • One of them can be exchanged for King Diamond’s Them. I have been listening to this album a lot.

        GRANDMA! I’m listening to Them!

    • tigeraid

      November’s Doom!

    • GoatForest

      You have very similar tastes as my younger brother. This is not a bad thing.

      • Awww, thanks, man. Would be cool to share some killer records with Mini GoatForest! 😀

  • sweetooth0

    I don’t have a CD changer, but these are the last 6 I had in my car’s center console I was rotating through:

    2. Fondlecorpse – Dark Contagion
    3. Nuke – Nuke
    4. Nunslaughter – The Devil’s Conjuries Vol 2

    6. Gore Beyond Necropsy – Go! Filth Go!!
    Grrrrrrriiiiiiiiinnnnnnnndddd!!

    • Howard Dean

      Oh man, that Nuke! One of my favorites from last year. Now I want to listen to it, and follow it up with some Shitfucker.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        First album Stu doesn’t try to be Barlow all the time.
        Much better than PoB.

        • tigeraid

          But on the other hand, more ballads than usual.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            True, but SWTWC was like half ballads anyways.

    6. No Sleep ’til Hammersmith – Motorhead

    • Talking Heads +1!

    • Óðinn

      Tool, Soundgarden, Motorhead. Very nice.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    At the moment I’m actually not keeping any metal/heavy hard rock cd’s at my car. I feel the need for a little less aggression and less “crush” factor when I’m either heading off to work or going back home.

    1. Pearl Jam – Ten
    2. Queens of the Stone Age – Queens of the Stone Age
    3. Mobb Deep – The Infamous
    4. Rush – Moving Pictures
    5. Lynyrd Skynyrd – Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd
    6. Soundgarden – Superunknown

    • Lord of Bork

      That’s one hell of a list. Well played.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Cheers! I used to jam the really heavy hard rock stuff (like Tool, AIC, Down, Devy’s Ocean Machine…) or straight up extreme metal (Suffocation, Winter, Sacramentum…) in my car all the time – but as of late I’m feeling the need for something just a bit “easier” on the ears (tho the subject matter may still get dark, as with Pearl Jam or Soundgarden, and the music may still get fairly complex, like Rush right now for instance or maybe in a couple of weeks it’s Pink Floyd) whenever I’m driving.

    • GoatForest

      I see you have Mobb Deep on your list. Ever listen to any older Brotha Lynch material?

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Only ever listened to the first album, Season of da sickness or something like that. Pretty good, tho I don’t really jam a lot of horrorcore.

    • Kyle Reese

      you old i ageist

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      Those are some of my favorite albums. Solid.

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Lately would end up looking something like:

    Candlemass – Nightfall
    Cirith Ungol – One Foot in Hell
    Wytch Hazel – Prelude
    Solanum – Judgemental
    Bathory – Hammerheart
    Manowar – Battle Hymns

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      That is not the name of Candlemass’ album…

    Shores of Ladon – eindringling

        I scored a vinyl copy recently so the cd has had a permanent place in the truck

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Man, I’d love that on vinyl.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Don’t have a disc-changer, or a car – but I guess it would look something like this.

    Slave’s Mask – Soak Kaos (Finally acquired a physical copy, one of my favourite albums of the decade)

    Leevi and The Leavings – Häntä Koipien Välissä (or basically any other of their albums. Best. Band. Ever? and excellent driving music to boot)

    Kakka-hätä 77 – Huoltoasemalle Unohdettu Mies (the best Finnish 77-punk record, and again, an excellent driving album that I’ve been spinning a lot lately)
    ——– Though maybe Kivesveto Go-Go – Nopeempi kuin Veijo, since it’s a brand new one and I’ve been spinning it a lot too. Not as good but very similar

    Antichrist – Sinful Birth (Recently got into this band, excellent thrash, been spinning this a ton)

    Nokturnal Mortum – Істина (Because duh)

    Impaled Nazarene – Suomi Finland Perkele (Got the vinyl a couple o’ months back and have not stopped spinning it since)

    • RJA

      I’ve seen a lot of Impaled Nazarene records have been re-pressed lately – embarrassingly enough, I don’t know them that well – good place to start?

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Eh, SFP is the classic – and I have a hard time choosing ’cause I like most of ’em quite a bit. And then some.
        All That You Fear may be a good starting point if you’ve never heard the band before – not their most extreme by any meter, but the songwriting is strong and you get more or less an accurate picture of what they’re doing.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Personally, I think Ugra-Karma is their main jam.

        …but I could be mistaken of course

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Is good, but wouldn’t start with it because it’s very… homogenous (by their standard) and “dry” sounding.

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            NIHIL IS FAVORITE!!!!! BUT IMPALED NAZARENE ALBUM CAN BE HARD TO COME BY IN US : (

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            True. Always felt it was among their most hate-filled and vicious tho.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            That is also true. At least, it would be a strong contender for both.

  • IPod comment aside, here’s 6 album’s on a current playlist:
    The Chariot – Wars And Rumors of Wars
    Minus – Jesus Christ Bobby
    Down I Go – Gods
    Faus – Technical Jargon & Partisan Rhetoric
    Don The Reader – Humanesque
    CHRMR – CHRMR

    My old car had a hilariously outdated 6-disc changer in it that I was using while my aux audio cable wasn’t working. It held the following randomly-burned-to-CD albums for about two years because I forgot they were in there:

    Skeletonwitch – Serpents Unleashed
    The Amenta – N0N
    Type O Negative – October Rust
    A demo from Blutige Nacht
    A bunch of random stupid songs I made for fun
    The Doom PSX soundtrack

    • The time for binge-listening to October Rust draws near . . .

    • Kyle Reese

      A torturous hell awaits you
      One of blood and sacrifice

  • My 6-disc changer is my passenger side floor. Here are 6 discs currently squatting there (half of them are CDRs).

    Depeche Mode – Violator
    1476 – Our Season Draws Near
    M83 – Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming
    Sun of the Sleepless – To the Elements
    Winds of Leng – Horrid Dominion
    Drive Like Jehu – Yank Crime

    • Depeche Mode.. now there’s a band i want to hear more of. the singles were great, is it safe to say that their rest of their music ruled too?

      • Some of it definitely does. I’m actually just now dipping into the deep cuts. For me they can be hit or miss. But worth checking out.

        • any time you find a good deep cut, hmu. i’ll take this journey with you, hand in hand.

    I don’t have a six disc changer (I have a couple 16 GB SD cards and I Bluetooth my phone) but this is the six albums that I’ve been listening to lately:

    Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dreams
    Manowar – Into Glory Ride
    Nifrost – Motvind
    Origin – Unparalleled Universe
    Ravensire – Iron Will
    GWAR – Carnival of Chaos

    • Siamese Dream>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • Óðinn

        I had that same dream, Richter.

      • Óðinn

        Can you review that White Death album again? That was the best thing ever.

        • No but I can cut-and-paste my review of it into a review of their next one.

          • Óðinn

            That would be great. Thanks Richter.

  • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      • D. Lee

        Agreed. I also like Point No. 1 and most of Sci Fi Crimes as well.

    • Óðinn

      Power Trip! Red Fang! Mastodon! Slugdge! Junius!

      SWEET!

  • Guppusmaximus

    I miss my six disc changer and my buddy’s one-hundred disc changer in his old apartment. Ahh yes…*wait*… Nostalgia doesn’t erase why you should’ve never have bought that fucking carousel nightmare. BTW, I still have my Zune. Does it work…who the fuck knows:)

    Anyway, these lists are so damn hard:
    Men at Work – Business As Usual
    Toad the Wet Sprocket – My favorite songs comp
    Opeth – Deliverance
    Depeche Mode – Ultra
    Candlemass – Ancient Dreams
    Corrosion of Conformity – Deliverance
    Faith No More – Best of the B-Sides
    Mr. Bungle – s/t
    Snot – Get Some

    • This is a bad-ass list. I’ve had a Toad the Etc. song stuck in my head all week.

      • Guppusmaximus

        Thank you sir. Yes, Toad is one of my all time favorite bands. Their discography is so diverse and their musicianship can catch you off guard if you try to dismiss them as merely a 90s one or two hit Radio Rock band. Same goes for Men at Work but, unfortunately, on a smaller scale in terms of material released and obviously the era. The hits on ‘Business’ were the shitty songs off that album , imho. Colin Hay had a unique voice with such a powerful & wide range. Yup…I’m ramblin:)

    • yeah buddy, your Zune is still gonna work. those things were engineering marvels. the worst thing that could happen is the battery is dead, but i can solder those on with ease.

  • Al Bvndy

    My list for the, er, bus these days is a rotation of:
    Unleash The Archers – Apex
    Rotting Christ – Triarchy Of the Lost Lovers
    Windswept – The Great Cold Steppe
    Therapy? – Troublegum
    Cradle of Filth – Cruelty and the Beast

  • CT-12

    Don’t actually have a CD player in my car, just cassettes. Here’s what’s found it’s way into my recent rotation.

    Magnicide – Rise to the Annihilation

    Queensryche – The Warning

    Soundgarden – Superunknown

    Sacrificio – demo

    Obacha/Chetwrecker split

    Kiss – Asylum

    • you had me till Kiss. but we are STILL remaining friends, friendo!

      • CT-12

        You’re not wrong in that department, that album is pretty much fucking garbage. It’s just what is in my car right now, even though I don’t really dig it.

        • i have a friend whose favorite band is KISS, so i have learned to respect it. haha. but you did answer the question honestly!

          • CT-12

            Kiss’ first 7 albums are all that’s real.

    • The Arm(KJM)

      Take out Asylum and replace it with Rock And Roll Over.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        Backed

      • CT-12

        Yeah, Asylum is terrible. I just saw it for super cheap and get nostalgic over “Tears are Falling”, so I figured I’d just buy it for shitz and gigz. None were had.

        • The Arm(KJM)

          I actually got the cassette from my HS friends as a joke birthday present back in the day.

          • CT-12

            The cruelty!!!!

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Same stuck thomas and friends story cd and i have no idea what other cd’s paid the ultimate price with the tiny tank engine

  • Taylor

    In no particular order:

    Anaal nathrakh – the whole of the law

    Iron Maiden – piece of mind

    Nickel creek – nickel creek

    Stam1na – raja

    Humood- aseer ahsan

    Melechesh – enki

    I no longer have a six disc changer, and I am sad.
    But with my car I can use my phone charger to connect with the stereo and play many albums I wouldn’t normally be able to listen to, so I am able to add a few of those onto this list.

    • is it a pretty standard wireless FM transmitter? does the audio quality ever suck because you’re in or around a lot of powerful FM radio towers? if so, did you know you can get a ‘wired FM relay’ that costs around $50 and increases the sound quality by at least double? it’s a protip that many people don’t know.

      • Taylor

        um… I *think* I know what you’re talking about
        I used to have one of those radio/phone device things. It did indeed suck. The car that I have now has a USB plug in and when I charge y phone it can connect to my song library and also apps like youtube

        • oh that’s direct, ya. good audio quality!

          • Taylor

            It’s super great! No more am I stuck listening to my phone’s speaker over road noise! I only wish that it also did Bluetooth connection for phone calls, but I suppose that’s just me getting greedy.

    • GoatForest

      Though it’s too early to tell for sure, I think that TWOTL may actually be Anaal Nathrakh’s masterpiece.

      • Taylor

        It is an album that I enjoy listening to quite frequently

      • dang, that’s high praise. will give it another go.
        i dig the shiiiiiiyyyyyyyat out of Vanitas.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Do you like Punch Brothers as well? I never got around to checking out Nickel Creek, but I’m not in a very metal mood today so I may get to that soon.

      • Taylor

        I haven’t heard of them, actually.
        There are some groups that I just happen to stumble across and I don’t usually hear about similar acts. I’ll have to give them a listen.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Punch Brothers is the current band of the mandolin player from Nickel, he’s a monster. Highly recommended!

  • BobLoblaw

    Instead of copying and pasting my last answer as nothing has changed (need to) ill just put the last 6 things I listened to on spotify.
    Death-The Sound of Perseverance
    Defeated Sanity-Disposal of the Dead/Dharmata
    Dim Mak-Knives of Ice
    Keep of Kalessin-Armada
    T.R.A.M-Lingua Franca
    Mahavishnu Orchestra-The Inner Mounting Flame

    • dude that T.R.A.M. those guys need to write moar music!

      • BobLoblaw

        I certainly enjoy it more than most Animals as Leaders stuff.

        • several non-metalhead friends of mine dig it too. it’s good to put on a gatherings, a real crowd-pleaser

      • The Arm(KJM)

        Dood, if you like King Crimson and Yes, you REALLY should check out Mahavishnu Orchestra if you haven’t already.

    • The Arm(KJM)

      Mahavishnu Orchestra >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • GoatForest

    1) Down- Nola
    2) Shining- Eerie Cold.
    3)Anaal Nathrakh-The Whole of the Law
    4)Electric Wizard-Time to Die
    5)Dark Fortress- Seance
    6)Funeral Mist-Maranatha

    These are the ones I’ve been going back to over and over for the last couple months.

    • Howard Dean

      At random times I will sometimes get “Blessed Curse” stuck in my head even when I haven’t listened to Maranatha in awhile (especially the ramblings of the creepy-ass apocalyptic preacher). What a great album. Not sure if we’ll ever see anything new from Funeral Mist (not looking good), but the two albums + Devilry are all classics.

      Also: Down – NOLA >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • GoatForest

        I agree. Blessed Curse is amazing. Just something really creepy about it.
        Also, It’s amazing how NOLA never seems to get old.

  • Óðinn

    Melvins – Stoner Witch
    Iron Maiden – Powerslave
    D.R.I. – Thrash Zone
    Slayer – Christ Illusion
    Black Sabbath – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
    Agalloch – Ashes Against the Grain

    • Taylor

      It was a tossup between powerslave and piece of mind for my own list. Piece of mind was the first Maiden album I listened to, so it ended up winning out in the end

      • Óðinn

        I recently added Powerslave to my in-car rotation. I hadn’t played it in a while. Great album.

  • The Arm(KJM)

    As long as we’re posting oddball shit…

    Haters gonna hate.

  • Kyle Reese

    oh hell no!!! you guys, whoever the fuck you are, shit on Exodus’ Toxic Waltz in that bracket but some dude is saying two Dying Fetus albums and a YES album are your fuckin’ six pick. I’m not making a list for y’all, but this list sucks. Now, I can say with some degree of certainty that LoG New Gospel is in mine, a Skeletohwitch, and like four others that I never hear but it’s called a bluetooth player. LIsten to whatever you want. Also, gimme some clean vocals at least thrice on an album. Bandcamp sucks, rethrash rules! Gimme your list and I’ll let you know if it should be smashed in an industrial machine or allowed to come back in time. I’m the good Kyle Reese, not the steroided out Genesis one without a personality.

  • Kyle Reese

    1. Master of Puppets
