Helnea Khilstrand Specht * Ice Age Original Bassist

Proudly Displays the

2017 Heavy Metal Debut Album of the Year Winner

Ice Age “Breaking The Ice” October 20th, 2017

Helana Khilstand Specht was the Original Bassist on the debut demo in

1986, and KICK ASS METAL inducts the whole band of its vintage-era, in to the KICK ASS METAL Heavy Metal Hall of Fame.

Helnea has always been a KICK ASS METAL Heavy Metal Hall of Fame Member.

The very first heavy metal hall of fame i ever built was in September 20th, 1980. As all 13 year old men do when they first here Ozzy Osbourne, Tygers of Pan Tang , Iron Maiden….etc

As the genre grew, i wanted the KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME

ASPECT TO GROW ALSO.

I wanted to say even if this band never released a album they would be inducted into this KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME……!!!!

Because 2 of the greatest live bands i have ever seen never released a album….so our guidelines are different from other metallic hall of fames!!!!!

Since this album Ice Age “Breaking the Ice” was released on October 20th, 2017, the last 75 days of 2017 are going to be very uncomfortable for everyone on Planet Metal, since there Balls to the Walls coverage on this historic event on heavy metal history.

Notice on our facebook page how the top photo has never been changed when were known to change it every 12 hours……it will be changed on January 1st, 2018….because we will never forget what the world happened in 2017….JUST WELCOME TO THE ICE AGE…..!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

and

Sonic Cathdral

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?
