I've been struggling for the last 2 weeks to get to my top 5 albums of 2018. I started with 12 potential contenders and have pared it down incrementally... to 6. And that's where I've been stuck for the last 3 days. I simply cannot figure out which one of the 6 to remove.

THE PAIN!

The Lazys has a good vibe, but few standout songs for me. 'Young Modern Lightning' is a pretty excellent ballad, though. 

I had no idea Diemonds released another album this year... 

Half Mast Blues a great song. Never been there myself mind you.

 

Lots of good humour on the Lazys album.

Dan, if it's not in your top 5 then you should definitely hear Beyond The Black before compiling.

Right up yr street and better than Within Temptation imo.

never got a chance to comment on your list.

Been listening to Slaves. 

Really cool album - very similar in style to Don Vedda (without the solos)

Probably would have been in my top 20

Yeah, as I said in my comments, it's definitely worthy of several higher spots in my list. If you like it, do yourself a massive favour and immediately access Awaken I Am - 'Blind Love' from 2017. I'm seeing these guys and Secrets on Sunday so I've been spinning it like mad and it probably deserved to be in my top 10 in 2017 - really love the album. Sadly I think I only heard it in early 2018 after seeing a list from Gotthardline in the aftermath, so I think it missed my end of year list in 2017 all together. 

It's probably a bit better than Slaves, imo. 

Funnily enough, I have every intention watching Awaken I Am open for Slaves at the end of March this year too. Will be an interesting show as they're such similar bands. Thankfully, both excellent.

One month down of 2019 and this is surely the slowest start ever? Probably only listened to 3 or 4 new albums and of those only the Wake the Nations caught my attention. 

Yep, need a couple more 2018 lists to see what I've missed.

It will be challenging to find a better (hopefully Work Of Art) from  the latest Syu (my favorite guitarist at the moment) solo lp. I wished he released 2 cds, one with my godess Fuki and one with Haruma. :wub::wub::wub:

Yes. Um, that'll be real hard to beat. Not sure it's going to be possible in 2019.

Oh look, my pug just walked through the doggy door and I had a tape recorder next to it and recorded the flapping of the doggy door. And already we have something better. ;)

    • I don't think grunge had anything to do with their demise as they split up in 1987, way before grunge came along. I really don't think they were ever considered a flash in the pan either, as the band had existed in some form or another since the mid 1970s, and they got their first taste of success in the UK in 82/83, and in fact it was the humourous videos that got them their foothold in their native country (the songs were certainly not humourous). Their biggest problem as that Stay hungry was such a huge hit that people felt Come out and play was a step backwards, and the band was already in turmoil by then. MTV refusing to play the Be chrool to your scuel, video. Poor concert ticket sales. And then AJ up and quit at the end of the tour. Their biggest problem was that it took them so long to finally break through that by the time they did, the age old trope of band in fighting became their downfall. I remember several interviews when Dee was promoting Widowmaker, and he was incredibly harsh about the rest of TS. Claiming they had no talent and their idea of back vocals was just shouting etc. I am a big fan of Dee, but I can imagine his big personality can be a lot to deal with in real life, and he certainly took over creative control of TS which probably pissed off the guys who were in the band before he ever joined.
    • Heard this today,it starts off well,the first few tracks are pretty good and Richard Black sounds well...but its downhill for me from about track 5 or 6 and I can't really recall the last couple as they passed me by due to my initial disappointment 
    • Hmmm sounds interestin.
    • Apart from a song here and there, mostly no.
    • I grew up in Maryland laws in that state were crazy, I remember a rain tax there not long ago
    • I dont get the hype for Steel Panther they are like a bad 80s tribute band 
    • I grew up in Maryland used to see shows at Network that later turned into Daytona then when I was old enough Hammerjacks in Baltimore, Frederick had big metal rock scene too I think it still does this is a great blog for metal in MD,dc and northern VA, https://dcheavymetal.com/
    • I liked the Clash, but for most part no
    • King Diamond The Spider's Lullabye on vinyl lp remaster Slayer Seasons of the Abyss on cd Iron Maiden greatest hits cd 2008 Judas Priest Sin after Sin and Ram it Down on cd
