Doom Decks

Realised I haven't offered an update on the decks of doom in Metalheadsreunited Castle. Here goes:
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium
Def Leppard - Yeah
Celtic Frost - Monotheist
Queensryche - Mindcrime II
Therapy? - One Cure Fits All

Weird thing is that despite the diverse selection they are all good!

What's the new Frost record like, old bean?

It's trés doom laden mate - they sound like a bunch of middle aged fucks who have been through some bad shit - which according to an interview in Terrorizer Tom G Warrior certainly has. It's a bit unrelenting, and for sheer being pissed off with the world, relationships etc the lyrics out emo the emos. It makes Morrisey seem like a cheery chappy! But with the intense sonic assault it is unmistakably a metallic assault on tender ears :) Still making up my mind as to whether it deserves to stand alongside Morbid Tales and In Mega Therion, but its pushing that way anyway, but minus any cheerfulness
