For those new to this page my main influences while many, but these two foundational ones goes over everyone’s head, from
1995 & 2001 respectively

&

Since our favorite favorite alternative metal band Bad Seed Rising disbanded in July 2017, we needed a band who ranked number 1 World-wide in this category, and I found them through Serendipity, via a Far From Fiction/ Doll Skin/ One-Eyed Doll Concert for the Metro Detroit / Windsor, Canada market.
I actually signed up for Doll Skin Street Team work!!!

Anyhow everyone wondering is Doll Skin in the big leagues of The Runaways, Betty Blowtorch, Jack•Off•Jill, and Barb Wire Dolls and the likes…!!!
Fuck yea, and oh yea, this is the real deal, punk rock to the bone!!!

Sydney Dolezal is a lead singer around 90% of the time, but when Doll Skin uses the two guitar attack, the Dolezal/Snowden guitar team rules!!!!

The standout thing about Doll Skin, is the KILLER guitar tone, a total wall of sound, from Guitar Hero Alex Snowden,

and the original timbre’ and tone of Vocalist Sydney Dolezal, you know a Doll Skin right away, instant recognition…!! The Rhythm Section of Nicole Rich • Bass and Meghan Herring • Drums is bombastic, and always played to perfection….!!! And I wanted to point out the fact that Alex Snowden plays stunning leads as a lead guitarist….metal to the bone and metal to the core…metal all the way, a perfect mixture of all her influences….!!!!

 

 

My favorite favorite song on this punk rock classic is “Let’s Be Honest”….while being honest, yes they are superhero rock stars, and the music will always make your day!!!

The song-writing for songs such as “Family of Strangers”, really helps Doll Skin, pull-a-way from the pack, and into top rankings/ratings. You can go through my last 15 year history here and elsewhere, and see we give very little coverage to this style, since it is covered better elsewhere, but here there #1 ranking for there category at KICK ASS METAL will be this way for decades to come.

Since Doll Skin won the 2017 album of the year for the heavy hard rock/alternative metal category, for the Album “Manic Pixie Dream Girl”…there was a huge jump artistically between the debut and the successor. A huge part of ranking bands is seeing them KICK ASS and take names and no prisoners. Not only does, Doll Skin have talent, passion, charisma, but the stage is there natural environment where they excel. I can NOT over-state the importance of how killer Alex Snowden’s guitar tone is….!!!

Rock Fans /Punk Rock who like the music KICK ASS with all killer and no filler, songs and with one of the coolest down to earth cover albums of the decade, I wish more bands would do this!!!!! Makes Doll Skin “In Your Face (Again), the first version of this album was on Cargo Records, but this is the real version!!!!….. Hopefully this will be inprint for years to come, spread the good word of mouth on Doll Skin…..because the whole discography fucking RULES!!!!

I also wanted to add the Doll Skin video “Let’s Be Honest” is one of our favorite video’s of all-time a top 10, because each band member, plays the part of each other and the instruments… something every band should do…… Oh and by the way, I see on the bands Wikipedia page that they are described as a wild cross between, The Donnas  (LEGENDS), The Go-Go’s (LEGENDS), and one of our favorite bands of all-time one of our favorite favorite bands of all-time The Runaways (LEGENDS), and trust me on this, Doll Skin are in the same big league as those bands, there in nothing wrong in this world with being compared to 3 of the greatest bands of all-time!!!!! And Doll Skin, have tons of various influencesthe ear will pick up on….giving Doll Skin its own one-of-a-kind unique easy to identify sound…with Alex Snowden A WALL OF SOUND !!!!!

Doll Skin Biography

Sydney Dolezal – Vocals | Alex Snowden – Guitars | Nicole Rich – Bass | Meghan Herring – Drums

2016 was a big year for Phoenix, AZ Rock quartet Doll Skin. After touring the country with their very first EP, “In Your Face” vocalist Sydney Dolezal, guitarist Alex Snowden, bassist Nicole Rich, and drummer Meghan Herring went on to defy the odds and destroy expectations, showing the world that rock has no age requirement.

Even though the band went into their collective career as teenagers, they emerged as a touring rock act, hitting the road and lighting up stages in 2016 with the likes of Dead Kennedy’s, Hellyeah, Escape The Fate, Stitched Up Heart, Fire From the Gods and more, appearing on Shiprocked 2016, and included many headlining stints. The release of their debut full-length 2016’s IN YOUR FACE (AGAIN), produced by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, showed the world what they were all about.

After meeting at the Phoenix SCHOOL OF ROCK in 2013, the fledgling band came to the attention of Ellefson, who took them under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Social Distortion, DRI, and many more, and set out to work on their Ellefson produced debut studio release.

The band topped off the year with an appearance in AP Magazine’s 2016 list of “7 of the Best Rising Bands Under 21”and will start 2017 off on an equally high note as they to release their sophomore LP “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” on EMP LABEL GROUP on June 16th, 2017, along with playing the first week and a half of 2017 VANS WARPED TOUR dates.

KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME ALBUM
TOP 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME

Whoa how long ago was it since the last top 100 heavy metal album of all-time was unleashed on Planet Metal if you know these pages…you know that were talking about Surgikill “Sanguinary Revelations”….see the top 100 list below,it is in reverse chronological order, so you by what is more important first, then get sometime to save tons of money to get the old metal classics, in 1st print pressing. It has been 1 year 6 months and 24 days since Surgikill Unleashed the KICK ASS METAL timeless masterpiece, upon planet metal on March 18th, 2016…..Surgikill “Sanguinary Revelations” is a top 100 album of all-time, and Vaultwraith “Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power….two down and 98 to go !!!!

HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAMES AND ALTARS OF METALLIC MAYHEM ARE BUILT around certain albums….and this is one of those albums!!! The 1st album I ever built a Hall of Fame around was Van Halen “Van Halen” on August 1st, 1978, and later Tygers of Pan Tang “Wild Cat” along with Ozzy Osbourne “Blizzard of Ozz” and I Have Metallica “Ride the Lighting” hanging in every room of my house, which was a common occurrence world-wide back in July 27th, 1984. These Megaforce Records/Important pressings are hard to come by, get a few and hand them on your wall….. I have a hall of fame room and a music library dedicated to albums such as this one…and all things Razorback Records…every tax return rebate time. Every year. I make sure to do a huge order with Razorback Records….because they are the best DEATH FUCKIN’ METAL label around….bar none….!!!! Because they have the best A&R team in heavy metal with the best taste!!! The reason this album is a top 100 heavy metal album, what they have all in common, is authenticity, originality, talent, conviction, song-writing genius, have THE KILLER GUITAR TONE, and knowing how to pay a MOLTEN METAL RIFF, along with the understanding if metal is played to slow it is AOR and if it is played to fast, for no apparent reason, then it becomes a alternative / modern metal, and not the actual KICK ASS METAL….The Major inspirations for this band are Death Metal, Celtic Frost, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate and Nocturnus, and Vaultwraith ALWAYS makes sure to stamp originality, all over there music….making sure you KNOW Vaultwraith is Vaultwraith, and you will never confuse them with Nocturnus or Crest of Darkness, because these 3 bands have distinctive one-of-a-king Guitar Tones, World-Class Keyboard Players, and a World-Class Death Metal Vocalist, who has one of the best vocalist timbre’s in the heavy metal genre!!!! Winston Churchill stated ‘The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.’…so we try to do our top 100/ top 150 / top 500 / top 666 albums in chronological order forwards and backwards. But I wanted to say when collecting the best of the best….get 6 or 30 copies of this album, for your personal record collection, i am getting 6 myself, and if the album resonates with me on a deeper level, then I will get 30 copies. I make these recommendations to you, because i am doing it myself!!! The actual heavy metal press, those webzines who had print editions, originally in the 1980’s / 1990’s has been very stagnant this year in 2017, with all the publications I read, very few articles and reviews. So looking forward to reading this reviewed by the actual metal press, nothing so far….this is the 1st review of this album from a heavy metal publication that actually respects/ appreciates heavy metal….whoa nothing on the Voices from the Darkside Germany webzine, or TRUE METAL organization webzine or forum…!!!! But like every year in heavy metal, it is a highly competitive year, sorry about everyone’s luck this year having to compete with Vaultwraith “Death is Proof of Satan’s Power”, Infernäl Majesty “No God” and Tortue Squad’s “Far Beyond Existence” & the GODLY Your Chance to Die who has Simone Pluijmers as there World-Class Vocalist….Instead of being jealous or envious or whatever….just practice, practice, practice, practice and keep studying music theory and taking lessons.

We do have top 100 albums for every sub-genre of every year here. From this we do our top 100 for every decade and top 100 of all-time !!! As a Gothic Metal-age / Death Metal-age / Avant-Garde Metal-age publications….this death metal timeless masterpiece is so fucking killer metal, this had to be the priority today, over the 117,000 bands that are in the press on the daily basis !!!! This albums is leagues above the horrible/ strange and bizzare/ top 100 “heavy metal” list which are pure fiction, from the so-called “metal” press, the top 100 list from the publications from the webZines, who never had a print publication always have 90 glaring omissions and 90 false inclusions, it was never like that back in 1982/ 1983/ 1984/ 1985/ 1986….1990. Those list are good AFTER you obtain the 1,700 to 2,700 albums which are superior over there so-called “top 100 heavy metal” albums”….those who have been following actual heavy metal from the actual press, since 1978 like myself, already have this album. Luckily for me and planet metal the actual metal press that I have been using since 1990 are still around !!…so i don have to read all the garbage around since 2002 or so!!

Anyhow collecting heavy metal is not the rocket science the pseudo-intellectuals make it out to be…..this is one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all-time. Just find the webzine that has the same to exactly the same taste in metallic mayhem, and collect according to authenticity, if you have none, dont’ worry be yourself…!!!! Oh and find a superior book on superior work ethic, after this the 7 billion people on planet metal are going to need it, trust me on this one….!!! Every three months a new top 100 heavy metal album of all-time happens, nature abhors a vacuum…and when it does, it will have a savage factor, or if were the lucky ones, the savage fator but i just am curious to see if has the talent / virtuosity factor of this album, as well as the deadly sharp and effective riffs, and those punishing rhythms of never ending metallic devastation !!!!

Vaultwraith Biography
Deep within the tenebrous bowels of a dark and decrepit castle was it that the black ritual was undertaken. Assembled there were four of the worst sinners this world has ever known, utterly profane and perverse: The Warlock, He of the Blasphemies … Alucarda Bellows, She of the Devil … Esteban Walpurgis, He of the Evil Rites … And Baron Blood, He of the Flesh & Blood. A blood red full moon hanging in the benighted sky, they began the unspeakable ceremony. MERCYFUL FATE and BATHORY albums were offered unto a flaming pyre, as were the celluloid artifacts of Jess Franco and Paul Naschy. Once some esoteric incantations in Latin and Summerian were uttered alongside the spilling of hot sacrificial blood did that loathsome quartet play the notes known but to the most impious and obscene. And it was then, at the foreboding stroke of midnight, that the shuddersome fiendish spectre did arise from out of the stygian void … THE VAULTWRAITH!

While its ominous conception dates back to 2012, it was not actually until the untimely death of that legendary underground warlock, Jim Sadist of the infamous NUNSLAUGHTER, that it truly arose from the netherworld. Before his death, Sadist had been in talks of joining the Devilcraft Cult and it was indeed those dangerous meetings that conjured the very soul of the thing, bringing infernal life to what had been, before, but a formless nightmare. Now sworn to an unwholesome and unholy pact with devils, witches, and all that is supernatural, VAULTWRAITH was begotten upon the Summer Solstice of 2016. Inspired by those masters of classic ‘80s metal such as KING DIAMOND, IRON MAIDEN, and early METALLICA as well as the heavier occultism of CELTIC FROST and NOCTURNUS, it evinced an otherworldly marriage of furious heavy metal guitars, dualing monstrous extreme metal vocals, and keyboards straight out of a Hammer Horror film. The result of all this utter devilry was black hymns that not simply dripped with a palpable atmosphere of unadulterated evil but that were hauntingly melodic as well.

The very first manifestation of VAULTWRAITH’s malevolence came in the form of the “Wrath of the Wraith” demo in late 2016 and it was this tape that seduced obscure label Turanian Honour Productions to arrange a split 7” with, so very apropos, NUNSLAUGHTER, this to be freed from Hell sometime in 2017. But it was those maniacal overlords of underground death and black metal underworld, the one and only Hells Headbangers, who did behold the true potential of that Devilcraft Cult and offered to unleash their full-length masterpiece of aural horror, Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power. Eleven dreadfully metaled tributes to all that is morbid and macabre, it is due to lurk forth from the shadows in 2017.

And so, as you descend down, down, down unto the accursed black heart of that very same abandoned castle, you must ask yourself … Are you prepared to bear witness to the VAULTWRAITH?

TOP 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF THE HEAVY METAL GENRE GOLD STANDARD. The top 100 on this list is the top 100, any albums after that, are previous top 100 Heavy Metal Albums winners. This is the True Metal top 100 album list, Which is not to be confused with the top 100 heavy metal list, where the bands had more in common with AOR/Hard Rock/NWOBHM…Or our top 100 Gothic Metal list, where the bands have more in common with Alternative Darkwave. My personal subjective favorite favorites are on other list. This is Objective, and not subjective. Nah all list are subjective!!! We are highly on the classical / avant-garde music side of things.

TOP 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME

TOP 100 KICK*ASS*METAL DEATH METAL AGE GOLD STANDNARD ALBUMS

The best part of this job is redoing the top 100 top 100 album of all-time, each of our top 100 albums are segregated by obvious classifications, since were a gothic age/ avant-garde-age/ death metal -age publication….It would be cool to have Van Halen “Van Halen” on the same list with Vaultwraith “Death is Proof of Satan’s Power”, with Iron Maiden’s “Killers”, with WASP “WASP”, and The Gathering’s “Nighttime Birds”…..but we have a top 100 heavy metal albums hall of fame list, which is the GOLD STANDARD list, the actual top 100 albums, which every band no matter the genre, is measured up against. Our top 100 Traditional Metal list of the Golden Age of Heavy Metal August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986 is the list every reader always ask for because every distro and record store sees me buying those 100 / 150 albums every year, year in and year out!!!! I could live in the past back there….but I continue, to find the successor’s of the top 100 predecessors, and when these bands, unleash top 100 heavy metal albums of their own, it is pure magic….I never meet my international readers, but every week i meet my local readers, and i interview them, and ask what there looking for…..you know the answer, just the best of the best album of all-time, and tons and tons and tons of thrash metal…..!!! With zero hesitation, and I do this with pride adding this top the top 100 heavy metal albums list, of all-time, of the death metal age, there is a traditional metal top 100 list, but that is for style of guitar playing….the gothic metal list top 100 is the stuff we mostly listen to during the week, but when we go on Death Metal binges, top shelf only !!!! I originally was going to do a Death Metal / Heavy Metal publication separate from Gothic Metal coverage, but the gothic musicians and fans i talked to encouraged me to just do a Death Metal-age/ Gothic Metal-age/ Avant-garde Metal age publication, in one centralized location!!!!

While adding this to the top 100 heavy metal albums of all-time, on the heavy metal list the heavy metal that is called extreme metal or true metal by the mainstream media….I have to throw someone off the top 100 list, they will be pushed into the top 150 list….and then a top 700 list…then if they descent is containing for that album then it is just a KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME ALBUM !!!!

 

As long as i am still making money to collect my favorite top 20 genres, I will still feature The Birthday Massacre alongside Vaultwratih “WORLD -CLASS is World-Class”…..and those who have an album collection that is Classical Music/ Gothic Music/ Metal Metallic Mayehm….we will still be doing this…going on  my 40th year as a metal fan, I started with Heavy Metal with Van Halen, and got to see its growth in all it’s glory, this is a godsend subjectively, but objectively every time there is a new music style it always takes off……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The last album to be added to the top 100 albums in true metal was Darkness “The Gasoline Solution”…..the album is called Vaultwraith “Death is Proof of Satan’s Power”………there you go…there is 2 of the top 100….only 98 for us to add to that list, the list is else where here in an alphabetical order fashion, and a timeline….

There has been a Golden Age in Heavy Metal since 2012 in full throttle for 5 years now….!!! it is not covered because everyone is covering the other Golden Ages of the past in heavy metal….!!!!!!

 

I have always said there are certain albums where HALL OF FAMES AND ALTARS OF METALLIC MAYHEM are built around…..!!!!! And this is one of those albums……FUCKING ESSENTIAL TO SAY THE LEAST !!!

DAVEY SUCIDIE BIO

The name, “Suicide” is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there’s no ceiling for what we are capable of.“

Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze, killer tunes and theatrics into their own “nu” brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills rock, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. “Rock fans haven’t gone anywhere,“ Suicide exclaims, “they just need a reason to fall in love again.”

Formed in 2010, Suicide played a few shows in Hollywood, California before garnering the attention of a couple labels and the former manager of Linkin Park. Armed with the recordings that later became the Davey Suicide LP, by early 2012, Suicide signed a record deal with Standby Records. By the summer of 2012, Suicide started extensively touring. From 2012-2015, the band went on 16 tours, over 330 shows (with the likes of Static-X, Combichrist, Wednesday 13, Twiztid, Ill Nino, Orgy, New Years Day, William Control) and put out 3 releases including the Put Our Trust in Suicide EP (Nov 2012), the self titled Davey Suicide LP (March 2013) and the World Wide Suicide LP (September 2014).

Along the way, Suicide gained notable press with songs “Generation Fuck Star” and “Kids of America” by Kerrang Magazine as one of the Top 50 Rockstars in the World, Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need to Know, Revolver Magazine’s Ones to Watch, and numerous features in Big Cheese, Outburn, Substream, Scuzz TV & Blank TV.

Rumors of heavy friction between Suicide and the record label started surfacing after the intentional botched release by the label of World Wide Suicide in September 2014. In the spring of 2015, Suicide and the record label locked horns in a litigation over rights of Suicide’s albums and numerous contractual breaches. After a year and a half of litigating with little movement on the case, Suicide decided to release a tell-all video depicting the details of what the band had gone through with the label in August of 2016. The tell-all video immediately went viral and spun the music community into a media circus. It amassed over 1.3 million views, and reached over 3 million people in a matter of days. Shortly after the video went viral, an emergency hearing was called by the label and took place in Ohio. The lawsuit got settled the day of the hearing in exchange for the viral post being removed from Facebook. In addition, a settlement, freedom and music rights were granted to Suicide.

in late August of 2016, Suicide released the empowering single, “Rise Above” which got added to Kerrang TV, Scuzz TV and Kerrang Radio’s rotation. “Rise Above” symbolized freedom, a new life for the band and became the first single off their 3rd studio album entitled, “Made From Fire.”

On September 16, 2016, Davey Suicide’s catalogue was re-released on Itunes, and all digital outlets by Suicide under the name AntiSystem Records.

Made From Fire, the 3rd studio LP, was released on March 24, 2017 and charted on Billboard. The album peaked at #3 on Top Heatseakers, #6 on Top Hard Rock, #14 on Top Independent and #76 on the Top 200.
Made From Fire has guest features from Twiztid and William Control. Suicide exclaims, “all of this adversity tested us and forced us to learn how to survive. It could have ended us, but instead, we’ve created our most exciting collection of material to date.”

Critics and the public have been raving over this comeback story. “Davey Suicide’s, “Made From Fire” incorporates the anarchistic bite of vintage Marilyn Manson with the stadium feel of Bring Me The Horizon and the epic melodies courtesy of In This Moment. Blended together with barefaced sex appeal and borderline extremism and danger, Davey Suicide has erected a new kingdom of torching wrath, industrial destruction, passionate melodies, tons of charisma and a tough attitude allowing only one conclusion: If there’s one Rock band out there the world really, really needs right now, it’s Davey Suicide.“

The band finished their first few tours off this album cycle with Dope and Combichrist, Doyle (Misfits guitarist) and a headline run to the Ink in the Clink festival w/ 3 Days Grace. They are currently on their 3rd single entitled, “No Angel” and are heading out this winter to continue supporting, Made From Fire.

CRUD BIO

 

Crud are 

Musicians:
Vinnie Dombroski (Vocals), Danielle Arsenault (Vocals), David Black (guitar), Dana Forrester (bass), and Leander Decordova (drums).

Super-charged fetish rock that taunts and seduces you into submission. Crud creates sights and sounds that linger. Think Fight Club. Think A Clockwork Orange. Think you’ve seen anything like it? Think again. It’s “Grindhouse” meets“Easy Rider” – audio crack for deviants.

Crud’s debut CD DEVIL AT THE WHEEL featured fiendishly addictive tracks that continue to be the soundtrack of choice for TV’s hottest shows. The disc’s title track was recently featured in FX’s hit show “SONS OF ANARCHY” and was also used in the TV film trailer for the 2009 blockbuster film “SHERLOCK HOLMES,” starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.

Additional Crud tracks have been spotlighted on episodes of CSI (CBS), Burn Notice (USA), VH1’s “History of Metal,” and “Celebrity Fit Club,” Spike TV’s “Scream Awards,” E’s “20 Acts of Love Gone Wrong,” MTV’s “Cribs,” video game “Test Drive 2,” horror flick “Laid to Rest,” plus many, many more.

The single “Reality” (Bang, Bang, Bang!) in particular has enjoyed massive TV exposure -and was even A&E’s theme song for their “CSI Wednesdays” promotion.

Now with the release of Crud’s highly anticipated new sophomore CD “CRUD ON MONSTER ISLAND” the band is poised to further infect the masses. Already, Crud’s song “The Man Goes Down” – from “Crud on Monster Island” provided a dark aural backdrop to a frenzied criminal chase scene on ABC’s “Detroit 1-8-7” TV show.

Live, Crud delivers an intoxicating and provocative rock show like none other. Fronted by Vinnie Dombroski (who the Austin Chronicle calls one of rocks most mesmerizing front-men) and burlesque beauty Danielle Arsenault, Crud grinds out a visual and aural assault that leaves you begging for more. Band mates David Black (guitar), Dana Forrester (bass), and James Trunko (drums) set the stage ablaze with delicious gritty decadence.

Hailing from Detroit’s underbelly, Crud toured the UK, including a headlining slot at the Whitby Goth Festival. The band also rocked Rue Morgue Magazine’s “Festival of Fear” with George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) in Toronto, in addition to headlining some of the coolest festivals across the land including Theatre Bizarre, The Peoples Arts Festival, Arts, Beats and Eats Festival, Noir Leather and Showtime Clothing Anniversary Bashes, “Pink’s All Out” party at Milan Dragway, Carnival of Chaos and more!

Crud has been profiled in “Bizarre,” “Spin,” “Metal Hammer UK,” “Girls and Corpses” and other cutting edge media outlets.

“Crud on Monster Island” and “Devil at the Wheel” are now both available on ITUNES.comCDbaby.com and Crud313.com
