THIS NECKBREAKING NEWS FEATURE IS COURTESY OF RoadrunneR/Blabbermouth News Service

Death metal GODS AND HEAVY METAL LEGENDS MORBID ANGEL will UNLEASH upon planet metal their new album, “Kingdoms Disdained”, on December 1 via UDR Music. Recorded at Mana Recording in St. Petersburg, Florida with producer — and former MORBID ANGEL guitarist — Erik Rutan, the LP marks the band’s first release with drummer Scott Fuller (ANNIHILATED, ex-ABYSMAL DAWN) who joined MORBID ANGEL last year following the departure of Tim Yeung. It is also be MORBID ANGEL’s first album to feature bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker since 2003’s “Heretic”.

“Kingdoms Disdained” will include the song “Warped”, which MORBID ANGEL performed live on its recent U.S. tour.

Tucker, who is back for his third spell with the group, told “The Metal Magdalene With Jet” show about MORBID ANGEL’s approach on the upcoming album: “It was really just about writing music — it was just about writing a MORBID ANGEL album. Nobody said, ‘Hey, we wanna go in this direction,’ nobody said anything. I mean, there’s obvious things there. I’ve said it before — I’m a death metal guy, so, for me, it’s gonna be a death metal album; if I’m on it, it’s death metal. So it was just about making a MORBID ANGEL album. It was really about coming in with something new, something fresh, but yet it still being MORBID ANGEL. Really, honestly, we didn’t approach this any differently than any of the other albums I was involved in except for maybe [1998’s] ‘Formulas Fatal To The Flesh’, which ‘Formulas’, Trey [Azagthoth, guitar] wrote all the music, all the lyrics and things like that. But this was done more similar to maybe [2000’s] ‘Gateways To Annihilation’, where everybody had their contribution. Trey wrote a bunch of songs, I wrote songs, Scotty contributed some ideas. There was a lot of back-and-forth. In the end, it has to become a MORBID ANGEL song. And at this point, I feel that it’s very much a MORBID ANGEL album.”

MORBID ANGEL in January announced the addition of Dan Vadim Von (guitarist/frontman of the American death metal band VADIMVON) to the band’s lineup on second guitar. He joined the group as the replacement for Norwegian guitarist Destructhor (a.k.a. Thor Anders Myhren), who left the band two years ago.

Former MORBID ANGEL frontman David Vincent recently joined forces with several other musicians — including Yeung (drums) — to perform classic MORBID ANGEL songs under the I AM MORBID banner.

MORBID ANGEL’s avant-garde metal masterpiece 2011 album, “Illud Divinum Insanus”, marked the group’s first CD to feature Vincent since “Domination”.

 

The reason Morbid Angel is featured in these pages is because Morbid Angel is 30 years of the World’s Greatest Heavy Metal of all-time and one of the GREATEST HEAVY METAL BANDS OF ALL-TIME. Acutally the Morbid Angel album “Domination” is ranked/ rated as one of the GREATEST TRADITIONAL HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME, by hundreds of KICK ASS METAL staffers, but as the Boss, I have the Knowledge to Know that Crest of Darkness “The Ogress” is the greatest heavy metal album of all-time, which has been a undisputed fact @ KICK ASS METAL since it was unleashed upon Planet Metal, back in May 12th, 1999, KICK ASS METAL is a GOTHIC age/ Avant-Garde age/ Death Metal age publication and Crest of Darkness has all 3 of those factors to perfection…..so that is the objective/subjective aspect of that fact. Morbid Angel as a traditional heavy metal band, as well as a death metal band has 6 albums in the top 100 heavy metal albums of all-time, in the traditional metal realm, those album are Abominations of Desolation 1986/19991 — Altars of Madness — Blessed are the Sick — Covenant —- Domination and —- Entangled in Chaos, as a traditional metal and extreme metal fan, all of those 6 albums also belong on the top 100 extreme metal albums of all-time, also. As a Avant-Garde Age Publication, the Avant-Garde Metal Community championed the Avant-Garde Metal Timeless Masterpiece “Illud Divimum Insanus”….which that article has now been pulled but I have a photographic memory so I remember that article being published, because I have a print out of it as I went to the record store for that album, since it achieved the status of being, SUPREME IMMORATAL METALLIC ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER FROM THE GOTHIC METAL/ AVANT-GARDE METAL COMMUNITY !!!! I have been going to the record store 3 to 4 times a week since October 1st, 1982, when I lived 3 blocks away, 900 feet awasy from a METAL ELITIST / METAL ONLY record shoppe !!!!!
Morbid Angel is one of the few artist from the GOLDEN AGE OF HEAVY METAL. AUGUST 1ST, 1981 TO OCTOBER 31ST, 1986, to be covered in these pages. Motörhead, Morbid Angel are two bands that never sold-out or washed-up and washed-out like every 1980’s heavy metal bands. 1980’s heavy metal artist could not cut it in the 1990’s…first wash-ups and sell-outs in 1985 and the genre being THE LAUGHING STOCK OF heavy metal community, skateboards and Bermuda shorts…etc….!!!  That is the reason the Death Metal age happened and is still the zeitgeist of the genre. And the Genre got a crushing blow When Metallica unleashed upon Planet GLAM METAL the timeless AOR/GLAM Metal masterpiece Metallica “Metallica” on August 12, 1991 the Mötley Crüe-esque Metallica “Metallica” even getting Mötley Crüe’s producer to achieve the AOR/Glam Metal/ Hair Metal/ Los Angels Metal sound and style…..As a Glam Metal fan I claim Metallica “Metallica” as one of our own….and appears on the top 100 GLAM METAL ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME LIST, and is a KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME album in the GLAM METAL category. Most of the sell-out thrash metal albums are perfect for a GLAM METAL RECORD COLLECTION — Metallica “Metallica”, Megadeath “Countdown to Extinction” Testament “Practice What Your Preach”. As a gothic metal age publication there is no such thing as selling out in OUR genre, but Heavy Metal is the only genre where this phenomena/ selling out occurs….and seeing Metal bands sellout is not only fascinating, put kind of cool really seeing Metal bands cater to the people who hated them since day one, while betraying the fanbase who made them millions and legends in the first place. As a gothic metal fan, I know the difference between hard rock and heavy metal and gothic metal, and it is cool to watch almost every song-writer from the 1980’s to be fascinated with the Popular Culture song-writing formula. It still listen to Classical Music and Heavy Metal/ Gothic Metal 50/50. It helps keeps me geared toward the gothic/avant-garde side of heavy metal!! Keep in Mind Thrash Metal was already dead, wash-up, and sold-out long before Metallica released a album Metallica “Metallica” on August 12th, 1991…. which has more in common with Pantera’s “Power Metal” Mötley Crüe “Too Fast for Love”, Mötley Crüe “Shout at the Devil” and WASP “WASP” instead of Tyges of Pan Tang “WildCat”. Were just letting you know the actual subjective/objective facts as why Metallica was a KILLER METAL band for just say 5 years and Morbid Angel achieved 30 years of the greatest heavy metal band of all-time !!!

The year is 1994 and the boss of the publication that I worked for previous to this one, walks in the offices and takes down from the offices heavy metal hall of fame, the greatest album of all-time at the time which was Deicide’s “Deicide” since this was the beginning of the Death Metal AGE, as all the thrash bands, minus a half a dozen were all washed up and all about to sell out, on or around August 12th, 1991, all the thrash clubs were about to close down. The boss takes down the Deicide Press Photo and Deicide “Deicide” album, and puts up the Cradle of Filth “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh” and points to me, since I always compiled top 100 heavy metal albums list, and say to me “World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Band” and “World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Album”

That was 22 years ago !!!!!!!! …….. And our offices has 22 stacks of the 21 Cradle of Filth FUCKING ESSENTIAL Cradle of Filth releases !!! I have a second job always to make sure this done with in a calendar year, because as soon as January of each year comes I recollect the top 100 heavy metal albums of the golden age of heavy metal August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986 as well as the top 100 heavy metal albums of the death metal age 1990 —present. So yesterday the new Cradle of Filth “Cryptoriana —The Seductiveness of Decay” was Unleashed on Planet Metal…..I bought 2 copies of this on digipack yesterday…!!!! And I was really excited, and of course this is a contender for album of the year alongside Infernäl Mäjesty “No God”

And the GODLY Major Ragers Torture Squad who hail from São Paulo, Brazil

So the album of the year publish the first list by October 30th of each year so you know what CD’s to pass out for Halloween, since every day is always Halloween @ every GOTHIC and GOTHIC METAL publication world-wide !!! I am starting to take pride in the fact I have survived publications such as Ill-literature, Industrialized Metal Webzine, Goth Metal World, and Avant Garde Metal…..!!!! If your a fan of the social network Vampire Freaks, then we hope we live up to our potential, of being the successors to Goth Metal World !!!!!!!!!!! Celtic Frost “Into The Pandemonium” is the album which gave this webZine its direction, alongside Avant-Garde Metal and Ill-Literature webZines…..As a heavy metal fan since August 1st, 1978, there was no gothic metal until November 2nd, 1987 and of course there was only traditional metal and underground metal to listen too and innovation were only in small and safe increments..!! So Cradle of Filth “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh” was the godsend…..be the change in the world you want to see and be strange !!

GOTHIC METAL AND AVANT-GARDE Metal yeah MAKE IT….. we don say “Weird” we say KICK ASS…The two genres HAVE the same birthday from the same progenitor release

http://www.avantgarde-metal.com

 

 

I was already listenting to Celtic Frost “Into The Pandemonium” and Sabbat’s “History of a Time to Come” on a daily basis. Since I always love the more KICK ASS METAL RELEASES in heavy metal

 

 

As a Annihilator fan since day 1 with the first demos….!!!! I love the digipack version of this album, because one of the two bonus tracks is

Annihilator “Alison Hell”

Cradle of Filth’s “Cryptoriana — The Seductiveness of Decay” is the 2nd full length Lindsay Schoolcraft has been on as the metal legends and metal gods keyboard player and backing vocalist….and while I worship hard every era of Cradle of Filth…the last 2 albums she has been on are total KICK ASS METAL ALL THE WAY…and is in the fucking essential realm when talking about SUPREME IMMORTAL METAL ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER !!!!! …aka the KICK ASS METAL stuff ie, the true metal, the actual metal !!!!! !!!! But as the ONLY METAL PUBLICATION that specializes in KEYBOARD-centic heavy metal or heavy metal featuring the best of the best bands with the WORLD’S GREATEST KEYBOARD players….!!!!! You know the future this page will be stamped with all-things Lindsay Schoolcraft !!!!! Because while all day every-day is Halloween, i will still add to my collection the greatest albums of all-time no matter the genre, especially avant-garde, classical, avant-garde classical, gothic, gothic metal and all things bad ass and kick ass !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

It should be obvious to the oblivious that 2 of my major influences

Metal MaidenS

http://www.metalmaidens.com

and

Sonic Cathdral

http://www.soniccathedral.com

 

Are stamped all-over this page !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

You can trust ONLY YOUR SELF, THE FIRST 6 BLACK SABBATH ALBUMS, (i also have a few choice ones, after this fact, the first 6) AND THE 21 CRADLE OF FILTH RELEASES THAT are Studio albums, live albums, compilations, DVDs.

 

And for those who disagree with our 22 years onslaught coverage of Cradle of Filth. Here is the world’s smallest violin ….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cry me a river of blood &  Play me a song FUCKERS !!!!!!!!!!!………………In 2024 i am psyched to feature the whole year of  2024…..CRADLE OF FILTH 30 YEARS OF THE WORLDS GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND OF ALL-TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For those who are thinking what if they “Sell-Out” well i will catch you up to speed….cause your slowwwwwww ….. the gothic culture does not have a “concept” of bands “selling out”. Posers in the true metal community invented that bullshit story with a million of holes I can poke fun of and mock, endless for a million hours at a time  !!!!!!

 

And I froth @ the mouth knowing I have bought every record collection of Cradle of Filth’s detractors……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I enjoy that each of the of those assholes are now, soft rock fans, and worse …….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Earlier today, a KICK ASS MEAL fan wanting to finance me a book, asked how much I would need to write a book in the vein of the Gary Sharpe-Young book….I Said 2 Million dollars….because I only do thinks i right and real way !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Metallic altars of heavy metal mayhem and heavy metal hall of fames are built around artist such as Cradle of Filth and “Cryptoriana — The Seductiveness of Decay” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With stunning artwork from Arthur Berzinsh, this album is a true “must have” and FUCKING ESSENTIAL ALBUM …………..BUY OR FUCKING DIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back in 2001, it was reported in the actual heavy metal press, you know fanzines, I still read heavy metal magazines over the webZines…. that one of the greatest World-Class Heavy Metal bands in heavy metal Arch Enemy, recruited on of the best most convincing and talented vocalist in Angela Gossow, I was psyched on April 25th, 2001 when Arch Enemy “Wages of Sin” was unleashed on Planet Metal, I knew I would be a life long fan of this band, each album they have released is on our top 100 heavy metal albums in the year in which they were released…so a couple of years back in June 9th, 2014, when Alissa White-Gluz became the lead vocalist, I was relieved, because Alissa does a KICK ASS job, and has tons of charisma, and talent, and is just as convincing as Angela Gossow…!!

Arch Enemy is just one of those bands just good luck opening a webzine, a fanzine, a top 100 albums list, and a history book on heavy metal, and not seeing a chapter on Arch Enemy.

 

As a Gothic Age-age, Death Metal-age, Avant-Garde-age publication, we cover a few golden ages of heavy metal, the Death Metal-age since June 24th, 1990 and the Golden Age of Gothic Metal starting January 1st, 1993 and the Golden Age of Avant-Garde Metal, which started on July 27th, 2004, as well as covering the Golden Age of heavy metal from August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986. Arch Enemy is a big part of this publication, just like every heavy metal publication that covers the best of the best in World-Class Heavy Metal….!!!

 

So those who know these pages or those who have meet me personal know, that this has been a favorite band of mine for over 15 years now…and as a first day buyer of the new Arch Enemy “Will to Power” album on CD in digipack format, after giving this album a few dozen spins, this is a “must have” album, for fans of this style of heavy metal, and a FUCKING ESSENTIAL purchase for life long fans of this band…..we do our initial top 100 albums list each year on October 30th..so our readers know which albums to pass out for Halloween, and which albums are excellent gifts for Christmas holidays, and of course to let our readers know which albums are the best of the best of each year and of all-time !!!!

Arch  Enemy “Will to Power” is one of the best albums of 2017, and should be added to your serious records collection as soon as possible…….!! We go out of our way to cover heavy metal bands that NEVER SOLD OUT…and without any hesitation we recommend the whole Arch Enemy back catalogue to those new to heavy metal, who started with the genre in 2017 or see this in the future………….!!!!

This album should easily get top scores from the likes of other like minded webZines such as  Sonic Cathedral, Metal Maidens, Femme Metal webZine, Black Phoenix Rising Metal Forums and Ravenheart Music, and of course expect to see this on top 100 heavy metal list all over planet metal !!!!!

 

5TH BACK TO BACK TO BACK CLASSIC RELEASE SINCE June 9th, 2014, when Alissa White-Gluz became the vocalist, replacing METAL LEGEND Angela Gossow, making Alissa White-Gluz a METAL LEGEND in her own right. And 14th, album in a row, with a perfect score of 100 out of 100 blood dripping skulls since April 25th, 2001 and a flawless discography since December 12th, 1996, 21 years of a perfect discography….!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not bad huh?

100 OUT OF 100 BLOOD DRIPPING SKULLS — FUCKING ESSENTIAL

 

There are a few major GOLDEN AGES OF HEAVY METAL, the first one being the Golden Age of Heavy Metal which was from August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986, for Traditional Metal/ Power Metal/ Thrash Metal and Glam Metal also was a genius heavy metal genre during this era.

 

The Golden Age of Death Metal because of the collapse of thrash metal and all the bands selling out, first in 1985, then 1987, from a phenomena, called the “Slow Down Syndrome”, where thrash metal artist were writing thrash metal albums for heavy metal fans, who hated the style in the first place…. and if those bands survived that they did not survive the collapse of the actual genre by October 31st, 1991, when all the clubs closed down, and Metallica “Metallica”, which we have listed as a hair metal hall of fame album in this publication, a album which had more in common with Motley Crue, W.A.S.P, and the MTV power ballad armada, a couple of grab your lighter in the air songs are on Metallica “Metallica”  then there roots of Satan, Mercyful Fate, Motorhead, Jaguar, Holocaust….the Death Metal age started in June 24th, 1990 with the album Deicide “Deicide” on RoadraceR Records and for almost 30 years been the genre with the most sincerity and the genre with the most bands, who have the original savage factor from the debut albums. Does heavy metal publications even cover thrash metal any more as a genre, washed like the NWOBHM genre which has been dead since August 1st, 1983 with its last classic album being released in March 1oth, 1986 Deep Switch “Nine Inches of God”

 

The Golden Age of Avant-Garde Metal is from July 27th, 2004 to July 27th, 2014 to December 22nd, 2015 ….where this genre had its own webZine and all the bands were a million miles ahead of the other bands in the heavy metal genre as well as the other 1,300 music genres around, these days.

 

The Golden Age of Gothic Metal was from January 1st 1993 to July 27th, 2004, in other words the first TRUE NORWEGIAN GOTHIC METAL bands releasing demos to Cradle of Filth “Damnation and a Day” .

This album is being featured because of it being a top 10 and top 100 album in 3 to 4 different categories. For those new to heavy metal and not around, as a true fan, and a concert-goer in 2002 this is the year

TOP 10  2002 Heavy Metal albums list looked like this alphabetical order

So the heavy metal bible aka the KICK ASS METAL PAGES, does need a Madder Mortem Chapter, no fucking doubt about that!!!!

 

One of the reason these pages exist, in the event you are new to heavy metal, alwasy start with bands THAT NEVER SOLD-OUT…..!!! and if you lose everything in a fire, or a natural disaster a act of god!!! and you lose your recrod collection and your record collectors list….these pages will refresh your memory of the top 100 heavy metal bands of all-time….

As a Death Metal-age, Gothic Metal-age, Avant-Garde Metal-age Publication….we were not even the first one, the publication this webZine is modeled after was called Ill-Literature then the next one, as a successor to that publication is Avant-Garde Metal webZine and print editions, and our other most obvious influences are Sonic Cathderal and Metal Maidens webZine….!!! And from there i read the best specialized press in each sub-genre !!!!

 

Madder Mortem has 4 albums in top 100’s in various heavy metal genres….not bad huh? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Below is a CD review on the GODLY Avant-Garde Metal webzine and covers the album Madder Mortem “Eight Ways” of course is a top 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUM OF ALL-TIME ALSO
I would never have thought that, of all things, such an incredible album like MADDER MORTEM’s latest work “Eight Ways” would cause such problems when writing a review! For instance there is a certain fear creeping in my head, ever since I started thinking about how to put my impressions into words – the fear of losing the magic of this album. On one hand this surely has to be expected for music of this gauge (in other words: I should have known before), on the other hand this probably is the “curse” of being a writer for a magazine (in other words: I should have known before)…

The second problem is: Where do I start to describe the fifth album of these five Norsemen round the siblings Agnete and BP M. Kirkevaag? I already mentioned that “Eight Ways” has become an outstanding album – but where exactly do I dive deeper into MADDER MORTEM’s world? I believe that some focused glimpse on certain details couldn’t do the album any justice; hence it is very hard for me to swoop down on particular instruments or songs.
For all those who are familiar with the last releases of MADDER MORTEM, it should be pointed out that the course they adopted with “Desiderata” has been pursued and intensified, “Eight Ways” sounds in every way deeper, more mature and more touching than its predecessor. All other readers should continue now, in order to get an impression of the offered music without knowing the back catalogue.

So let me start with the impression as a whole, before I try to enlighten particular aspects of “Eight Ways”: MADDER MORTEM know exactly what they do. Every riff, every break, every single tune is exactly in the right place, it is unbelievable. What does “right” mean here? – “Eight Ways” carries me off emotionally to such an extent music hasn’t been able to for a rather long time (I would even dare speak of years), THAT means “right”! The songs are traversed by melancholy, sadness, anger, despair and many blends, so massively and authentically that listening to the album continually gives me the creeps or brings tears to my eyes. I am dead serious about that.

A huge share in that – and by this we are at the start of a more detailed description – has singer Agnete whose voice is absolutely unique. Whoever thinks of Tarja Turunen or Liv Kristine when hearing the term “Gothic Metal” and expects something similar from MADDER MORTEM, has already lost the game. This is about emotions and not about trivial trilling as contrast to a Metal background. It’s about emotions Agnete transports in an impressive way – I don’t know anyone who is able to sound such desperate, to put so much anger into her voice and, in addition, is able to mix up several emotions seam- and apparently effortlessly. From a technical point of view she’s on a high level as well; not only the vocal lines deserve the attribute “unusual”, her range, both with head and chest voice, is sheer madness.

Agnete’s voice is surely anything but contrast, it perfectly blends into the instrumental context, just as if it was an additional instrument which completes the picture. And, just as in paintings every color is important for the whole picture, the guitars, the bass and the drums are in no way some kind of backing. The guitars, audibly seven-string guitars, move in a huge scope – fat, thrashy riffs appear as well as bluesy insertions, acoustic passages meet almost Black Metal-like leads, here and there some kind of tango (“Get That Monster Out Of Here”) or a Metal soundtrack to a Tim Burton-movie (“The Flesh The Blood The Man”). The golden thread is always visible though. Same goes for the very well audible bass and the impulsive drums. It is noticeable that MADDER MORTEM work as a band, that every member follows the same vision on “Eight Ways”. This vision is also conveyed by the transparent, yet very fat production which illuminates every detail and thus provides every song with the perfect sound.

And here comes the third problem which I stumbled upon while writing this review: How can I describe “Eight Ways” to my readers in a suitable way, how can I make my favorite for the “album of the year”-award palatable to him or her? If you, dear reader, have sat through until here and got a rough imagination of what “Eight Ways” caused in me, I already have solved this problem

KICK ASS METAL WANTED TO APOLOGIZE TO THE HEAVY METAL COMMUITY FOR NOT PUBLISHING THIS ARTICLE, ON MAY 12, 2017 .

Since May 12th, 1999.

From May 12th, of each year to May 12th of the Next Year. We have been l@@king for the Greatest Heavy Metal album of all-time….As a Metal fan since 1978. I know most people know by now the readers who have meet me in person that THE GOLDEN AGE OF HEAVY METAL was from August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986. But there have been a few dozen GOLDEN AGES FOR HEAVY METAL, The Death Metal AGE/THE GOLDEN AGE OF DEATH METAL, The Avant-Garde Metal AGE,/THE GOLDEN AGE OF AVANT GARDE METAL, The Gothic Metal AGE/THE GOLDEN AGE OF GOTHIC METAL…I have never been stuck in the TIME WARP of 1980’s METAL ONLY…..Most of my favorite albums are from

January 1st, 1993 to March 10th, 2003. Basically the Begin of the Gothic Metal age to Cradle of Filth’s “Damnation and A Day’.

THE EVOCATION I EXPERIECED WITH Crest of Darkness “The Ogress” was a MILLION TIME MORE POWERFUL than Metallica “Kill ’em All” on August 1st, 1983, when the second pressing hit the stores after the first press run on July 25th, 1983, Mercyful Fate “Melissa” on October 30th, 1983. or with Morbid Angel on May 12th, 1989…….exactly 10 years apart from Crest of Darkness “The Ogress” which happened on May 12th, 1999…..!!! Or Deicide

Sure there have been some close calls….Displin “Anti Life” was close !!! as well as Iperyt “Totalitarian Love Pulse”…..!!!!

We review actual heavy metal and actual world-class hard rock, world-class avant-garde, and World-Class Classical Music, every year on February 13th, of each year. We have to listen to the so called “Metal Media” and the “Metal Press” top album of each year…..and I am actually shocked at how our peers, and our inferiors….really do not know the essence of heavy metal!!!! Which makes there top 100 albums and albums of the year each year STRANGE AND BIZAREE TO SAY THE LEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KICK ASS METAL offices were closed for the Weekend for the 18th anniversary of this KICK ASS METAL feature for MOTHERS DAY….!!!!!!!! I gave everyone off that weekend, and even myself…so for that reason and that reason only, that this article was not written on May 12th, 2017 !!!!!

In 2017 the TOP album so far is Infernäl Majesty “NO GOD” it will enter a TOP 100 or a TOP 700 ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME LIST FOR SURE, because that album is PURE FUCKING MOLETEN METAL…..!!!!!!!!!

CREST OF DARKNESS FOUNDED IN 1993 and it is May 21st, 2017 and GOING ON

30 YEARS OF THE GREATEST HEAVY METAL BANDS OF ALL-TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!

LONG LIVE CREST OF DARKNESS !!!!
