5.0 out of 5 stars #1 Batman Film., September 14, 2012
This review is from: Batman (1989) (Amazon Video)
1989 film is easily the best Batman film of all time and one of my favorite movies. Michael Keaton was the best Batman and Jack Nicholson does an excellent role as The Joker. Heath Ledger did just as good of a role, maybe even better but I prefer the direction of Nicholson. He did a good job as being a villain but still being crazy and having a sense of humor. Also Tim Burton did a great job directing and producing it. The genre and atmosphere was influenced a lot by him. The campiness of the '60s film and series is gone and there's a much darker edge to it. It's almost a prequel about Batman and The Joker, it starts with Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) as a child witnessing his parents killed by a criminal. He vows to avenge their deaths in a lifelong battle against crime while concealing his secret identity. Later on in the film it shows the origin of The Joker. Jack Napier is sent to raid the Axis Chemicals factory. Batman arrives and takes out Napier's henchmen. Napier shoots at Batman, who deflects the bullet with his metal-reinforced gauntlet and sends it back in Napier's face. Napier falls into a vat of chemicals which almost killed him but just disfigured his face and eventually becomes The Joker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ozzy's Most Underrated., August 21, 2012
No Rest For the Wicked has to be one of the most underrated albums in metal. After Randy Rhoades death, he was replaced by Jake E Lee but he left the band also. Zack Wylde was the new guitarist and Ozzy took a new direction, however this was before his comeback with No More Tears that put him back into the limelight. No Rest For the Wicked is the heaviest of his '80s discography. It's also very fast paced and upbeat, in my opinion Zack Wylde's a lot better guitarist than Jake E Lee or even Randy Rhoades. No Rest For The Wicked was almost forgotten and it only had one minor hit, "Miracle Man". "Demon Alcohol" and "Tattooed Dancer" are my personal favorites. It's not my absolute favorite or probably not even in my top 5 but it's a step up from his last 2 albums and a good underrated gem, it's only a sign of things to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Their Finest., August 14, 2012
This review is from: Covenant (Audio CD)
"Altars Of Madness" and "Blessed Are The Sick" are still their finest albums to date but "Covenant" is still solid. The sound and production is more commercial but it's still very heavy and technical. The early Morbid Angel with David Vincent is still the best and Covenant is their last good album with him, I personally didn't care much for "Domination". It was alright but sounded uninspired in parts and the Steve Tucker-era was a return to form (I don't even want to begin with their latest album). The band is very talented, David Vincent is a very talented death metal vocalist. Guitarists are talented and the tone sounds perfect for the genre. Pete is a very skilled and talented drummer, it's technical but also very fast paced. I'd put him right up there with Dave Lombardo as the best drummers of all time. There's many other classic death metal bands like Deicide, Death, Cynic, Atheist, Vital Remains and Obituary. Morbid Angel will always be #1 though, at least in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Follow Up To I&W., July 26, 2012
This review is from: Awake (Audio CD)
I&W is an absolute masterpiece and it's still my favorite Dream Theater album but Awake is an amazing follow up to it and they take a new direction. It's overall darker and heavier than I&W, production's also better (especially the drums). It's isn't too overproduced either and it sounds great for the mid '90s. 6:00 is a great opening track and it's a faster hard rock track. It already shows a change from I&W and it's one of the best songs from Awake. Caught In A Web is almost as good as 6:00, another great hard rocker. Don't worry about diversity just because the first 2 songs are heavier tracks, the next track Innocence Faded shows a more melodic side followed by an instrumental track "Erotomania". It also has a couple ballads including Lifting Shadows Off A Dream, Space-Dye Vest and The Silent Man. It's included in the 3 part song, starting from the 9 minute track "Voices" than "The Silent Man" comes and then after a ballad it goes straight to the heaviest track on the CD "The Mirror" which is also my favorite from Awake. Awake is an absolute classic and one of the best albums in progressive metal, every track is great and the album never gets boring while listening to it. Still holds up very well with age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tool Take A Step Forward., July 11, 2012
This review is from: Undertow (Audio CD)
After their first album Opiate which was good but it was only the beginning and Undertow shows some maturity and has more structured songs. Not that it's extremely complex and technical but the songs on Opiate were very raw and stripped down, very simple compared to the rest of their later offerings. The lyrics are a bit darker and more serious here also and the band really got going with and took a step up, only a little over a year later. Prison Sex and Sober are classic hits and are still popular today. However the album has better songs like 4°, Intolerance, Crawl Away and the title track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slayer Take A step Forward., July 9, 2012
This review is from: HAUNTING THE CHAPEL (Audio CD)
After making their debut Show No Mercy, they start to find their way here. Their debut was influenced bu New Wave Of British Heavy Metal but they start a heavier American metal genre. The songs are faster paced and more complex throughout along with having a heavier edge. It's a bit short in quantity but not in quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Heavy Metal Classic., July 2, 2012
This review is from: Kill Box 13 (Audio CD)
Killbox 13 is an instant classic and it's a lot better than their last 2, which were good but just a step above mediocre. Killbox 13 is their first true thrash album in years and it's the best I've heard since Horrorscope. Struck Down is the best song in my opinion but the whole album's great and worth owning. The album is consistent throughout, great songwriting, quality production and the songs are a good mix of classic thrash and a hint of modern metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix Of Old And New Overkill., July 2, 2012
This review is from: Bloodletting (Audio CD)
It's better than their last and it has a good mix of their classic thrash from the '80s and their later heavier groove metal of the mid-late '90s. They got some of their speed metal roots back but it still has a few slower tracks. Bleed Me is an excellent song and one of my personal favorites from Overkill. Bloodletting shows that they're one of the most consistent bands and keep putting out great albums. Bloodletting is a good example of modern metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Effort., July 2, 2012
This review is from: Necroshine (Audio CD)
Even though From The Underground was way better in my opinion, Necroshine isn't bad either. The songs are generally slower paced. It isn't as heavy either and an overall more polished and accessible sound. It will sound light compared to their last 2 efforts but it's still a metal album and it's far better than anything Metallica did from the mid '90s to the early '00s. It's not really thrash though, it's more groove metal with a hint of alternative rock. A very similar sound to Anthrax's "Stomp 442" and "Vol 8", if you enjoyed those albums than you'll probably like Necroshine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavier Follow-Up To Sad Wings., June 26, 2012
This review is from: Sin After Sin (Audio CD)
Sin After Sin is a classic from Judas Priest and even a bit underrated. A lot of fans would rank it below Sad Wings but it's just as good in my opinion. It shows them progress slightly in their career. Which they started out as more of a blues, psychedelic and hard rock band rather than metal. Sad Wings of Destiny helped define Judas Priest's sound as they got heavier, darker and a bit more progressive. Sin After Sin has a much rawer production and it's a bit heavier which they'd perfect their sound by "Stained Class". There aren't a lot of blues roots in Sin After Sin either which were consistent on their debut Rocka Rolla and still in several parts of Sad Wings.

JP made their first real heavy metal album including a lot of the 2 sub-genres progressive and speed metal. There's so many classics like Sinner, Let Us Pray/Call For The Priest, Diamonds And Rust, Starbreaker and Dissent Aggressor. Sin After Sin brought a new sound to heavy metal and it came a long way from the early doom metal sound of Black Sabbath. By the late '70s it got more upbeat with a generally faster tempo along with being a bit heavier. New Wave Of British Heavy Metal started around the time.
