Slowly We Rot by Obituary
Holy shit this song is awesome! It even includes a Sax section, which I think works incredibly well with the flow of the song. I cant wait to hear the album next month.
that rhythm tone gives me such a boner
the chiaotzu costume made this infinitely better
At work I can get on bandcamp so I've been listening to the entire Death discography. In the car I'm listening to Meshuggah Kolass
Up the irons!
I love this album. Not as much as Piece of Mind and Killers, but definitely has a solid spot at #3 for best Maiden record. And while I love the album and think it's pretty much perfect, I really hate the precedent that Rime of the Ancient Mariner set. I love the song, but the effect it had on future tracks sucks. They succeeded with one song that was 13 minutes, and ever since, Maiden have had an issue with taking 3-5 minute songs, and thinking they can turn them into 9-12 minute opuses. Endless half assed choruses, running out of steam half way through because instead of, you know, actual prog elements like introducing a new riff/movement in the song, they just go, "Hey, what do we do?" "Uh, I dunno... another chorus?" "Another chorus!" Someone needs to tell them that they don't need 19 choruses in a song. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I love that after Somewhere and Seventh Son, Maiden went back to shorter, concise, no nonsense songwriting. Fear of the Dark had slightly longer songs, but nothing too terribly obnoxious.
Anyways, rant over. Great album.
Piece of Mind will always top everything else for me... then Killers, # of the Beast, and Powerslave... followed by Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son. Honorable mention in there somewhere for their debut album. Agree about Somewhere and Seventh Son which was where they kinda lost me. By 1988 I was no longer following Maiden too closely. So much else out there was capturing my attention... Ozzy, Queensryche, Death, Anthrax, Slayer, Jane's Addiction, etc, etc..
Iron Maiden - No Prayer for the Dying, Fear of the Dark, Somewhere in Time
I love these pieces
A regular shuffle of The Black Dahlia Murder
