i am glad because i've been hoping it'll be a sort of second damnation.
not that many people on smogon are so i have no idea what you're talking about.but i'm not a tr00 metvlhead anyway so my opinion is meaningless.
going to have to disagree about doom metal being a "chore to listen to", but it guess that's just taste and all of that.Doom Metal is boring and a chore to listen to... Second Cianide song is better but it's still boring as fuck. Listenable but nothing impressive happening from the instruments. Slaughter had potential for having something interesting then didn't deliver in that song... I'd have to hear more.
Acid Bath I could dig... drums kept up a variety, not virtuoso status obviously, but not generic boringness, and the riffs were simple but catchy enough to keep going. Not gonna go out of my way to listen to them though, but still good.
I really liked Devastation. Going to check them out soon.
There's certainly no "Wenches and Mead" on this album as far as I can tell, so there isn't really a best "song" per se. This effort just gives the best overall experience compared to their other two. But I'm reasonable, I understand that if you're not into that sort of thing, you only need to have one.i may or may not check out the new Alestorm, a friend of mine linked me a song and it was meh, and it was apparently the best song on there. i like putting on Captain Morgan's Revenge occasionally, it's a fun album, but i can't say i need more than one album like that in general.
