A Child That Walks In The Path Of The Man

As a gothic and death metal publication, that has a affinity for the avant garde. These sub-genres of metal, have roots in the same and Celtic Frost.

Ever year I always have a PICK for a album of the year called

SYMPHONIC SALVATION.

I started this in 2006 and this album was the catalyst for that idea.

On the bands metal archives pages, they are listed as Symphonic / Gothic Metal. And when I reviewed this for a publication previous to KICK*ASS*METAL. I stated this was a gothic album, and the band went on record to say, that they are a SYMPHONIC METAL band.

And yes, this is SYMPHONIC METAL salvation.

And

KICK*ASS*METAL’s SYMPHONIC SALVATION album of the year in 2006.

In 2013 the WINNER Was

Agharti “Change”

So back to this one.

I have been a Cradle of Filth fan since Feb 1994 when they became our # 1 ranked / rated band of all-time.

Bands before Cradle of Filth to have this ranking were

Coven

Mercyful Fate

Metallica

Slayer

Morbid Angel

&

Deicide

The only band to have the number # 1 ranking / rating after Cradle of Filth is Norway’s Crest of Darkness. When it released the all-time METALLIC MOLTEN METAL KLASSIKER ” The Ogress”.

So with that in mind, I am a huge fan of

Sarah Jezebel Deva’s and have written may aritcles called

Deva-O-Graphy

Which is every album she has appeared on.

This is her 1st solo band album. Where she uses her normal timbre instead of the one used in the legendary BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Vocalist configuration.

And I am a fan of the timbre Sarah Jezebel Deva uses on this album.

When the CD came out, I grabbed 6 copies of each pressing. So yes, I have 18 copies of this album in my personal collection.

And nostalgia was occurring for me over this ablum… so I though it would be a good idea, for a another CD review. Since it is a top 10 album 2006 from one of my favorite hero’s of symphonic and gothic metal of all-time.

This album was first released on April 24th, 2006 and was the early front runner for album of the year that year.

Every GOTHIC Metal fan, and especially every GOTHIC METAL fan of the TRUE NORWEGIAN GOTHIC METAL style knows that Theatre of Tragedy is a top 100 heavy metal band of all-time.

Theatre of Tragedy’s albums always crack our top 10 albums for the years in which they are released in.

Making Theatre of Tragedy the most beloved bands of al-time, by the KICK*ASS*METAL staff.

In the realm of heavy metal and GOTHIC METAL this DVD, “Last Curtain Call” is in the top 100, and top 10 DVD’s releases of all-time.

I started with the heavier  heavy metal in the summer of 1980 Tygers of Pan Tang “WildCat” sold me on the idea of MOLTEN METAL RIFFS…leading to the underground movement, and I got to see all the real important evolutions and changes in heavy metal, especially GOTHIC METAL and the avant garde . Because I was always reading the leading metallic publications, in real time that dealt with authenticity, which is the key to everything, especially songwriting.

And Theatre of Tragedy are one of the most important bands in the history of GOTHIC METAL

Celtic Frost  * 1987

3rd and the Mortal * 1994

Cradle of Filth * 1994

(as a gothic and a avant garde metal fan Cradle of Filth is more than essential and has been KICK*ASS*METAL’s # 1 rated/ ranked band – INTERNATIONAL since February 1994 … and no band will every out over the top Cradle of Filth in my life time I believe…Being the WORLD’s  greatest heavy metal band for the last 30 years is still a mind-blowing achievement for Cradle of Filth.

Theatre of Tragedy * 1995

The Gathering * featuring World Class Vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen * 1995

Tristania * 1997
