nary a beherit album has more than 82% on MA, and their debut has a mere 76%

kevin - rumplestiltskin grinder is pretty dumb but they have pretty few reviews and they haven't topped 90% for any of 'em

let's keep our eye on the prize

(liturgy's latest album has 95% ... but just two reviews ... and I like it :awesome: )

Burzum is also a good candidate for this thread for other reasons, but I have a funny feeling I'm not going to get much support on this one.

neckbeard is way ahead of you!

even if you think burzum is dumb musically, it’s hard to deny that they were doing something noteworthy


that’s why the album inspiring this thread drives me crazy - it’s rehashed garbage. not even fresh garbage…

Do we want to start asking if 'Seven Churches' by Possessed is a good album, or merely historically noteworthy? That was certainly fresh garbage at the time - but is it BELOVED and PERFECT fresh garbage?

I can't ever make my mind up one way or another, it charms me in a way that's completely independent of musical happiness. It's like a beloved, but retarded family dog.

The part of this song that you first hear at 0:42-0:52 is one of the funniest fucking things to me - it makes complete sense that this music was written by kids, trying as hard as they could and making things up as they went along. Every riff follows this A-B-A-(random punctuation) formula... and then the drums do the same thing, KSKSKSKS(@#$@#@#$) KSKSKSKS(@#$@#$@#$#@).

If I get voted off the island for this, I'll accept my fate, but maybe this recording doesn't quite deserve a (avg. 91%) rating?

I think we can just look at the progressive metal list and pick one right?

Its a tough (but good) topic, because you have to factor in a lot of things like popularity and shittiness of said album or band.

My first guess was going to be Dissection's Reinkaos. A lot of people are creaming their jeans over this album in the last couple of years but I didn't care for it. It's at 72% right now, so that wouldn't count. Krisiun's Ageless Venomous is sitting at 77%, another failed guess. Amon Amarth's The Avenger is sitting at 89%.

Inquisition has a few albums over 90%. They suck

I've played on a couple, but certainly none where anyone tried anything that I'd call "new". I don't see how that's relevant to the fact that everything Beherit have ever done has been a laughable dick fart.

Now brother....let's take it easy on Possessed.

They were pioneers. Their new stuff is pretty righteous.

Citizen Kane is a piece of shit.

a dick fart is ejaculation and nearly all of the most illuminating black metal ever made is in some small way bordering on 'laughable'

the year is now 2021
