Paradise Lost - Gothic
Score: 10/10
'Gothic' is one of the best albums ever. It is a big influence of the whole gothic doom metal scene and on most doom bands nowadays. Every song on it is great, each one having an own atmosphere, though they're all very melodic and melancholic. The only negative thing I can think of is that 'Gothic' isn't about twice as long. So everyone who doesn't know this album should be shot. Well, at least be kicked. Hard.
 
Sarcófago - The Laws of Scourge
Score: 10/10
Oh crap!!! This album is much fucking better than anything else Sarcofago has ever made, that it's hard to realize that it's the same band! On 'The Laws of Scourge' they play a brutal yet melodic kind of death metal with some roots in the old trash. Maybe not every song on this cd is brilliant, but there are so much masterpieces on it that anyone with a slight interest in metal should love this. I hope we can expect more of this from Sarcofago...

Type O Negative - Slow, Deep and Hard
Score: 10/10
Hehe... Kind of a vague cd. Type O Negative have some morbid sense of humour seems from the artwork and lyrics. They play some kind of punk/metal with strange interludes. Songs that go on forever, but they're good enough not to get boring. At least, the fifth 'song' is so slow you'd have to be pretty weird to dance to it, the sixth is just silence, and then the last song is suddenly the highlight of the entire album. I'd like to hear more of them, only next time a more serious attempt maybe?

Messiah - Psychomorphia
Score: 6.5/10
Hehe well this is pure cult I think. Messiah is one of the best and most unknown death metal bands that started in the eighties, and this minicd is of the most unknown of their releases, so I was quite happy when I found it at a secondhand cd shop, after looking for it for quite some years. Well the music is typically messiah, combining extreme aggression with cool melodies, and this cd has got one of the coolest intros ever. Hm well I could say "buy it" but you most probably won't find it anywhere so I won't bother.

31Anathema - All Faith is Lost (demo)
Score: 6/10
Man I've had to search long to find this demotape. I've been a big fan of Anathema for some time now, and I'm very glad I finally got this demo. The sound of the tape is good, quite similar to their They Die Ep. That is, more rough from their cd sound, and the vocals more death metal style. Anyways, this is a cool demotape that's the pride of my music collection.

39Sadness - Y (demo)
Score: 5/10
Wow this is cool to listen to! The first demotape of Sadness, and here they play brutal old-school death metal with some doomy parts, a bit like old Therion. Very cool music, not very original though, and I don't hear much of the later Sadness music in it yet. But as a Sadness fan and as a fan of old school doomdeath this certainly is a cool demotape!

43My Dying Bride - Symphonaire Infernus et Spera Empyrium
Score: 5/10
The very first release of now one of the biggest doom bands around. It then already was clear My Dying Bride had a unique own sound, and the tendency to make really long songs. But still I mostly bought this Minicd just because I think MDB is one of the best bands I know, not because this album is so good. The first song is very nice, but the second two aren't that special. But who cares, My Dying Bride just rules.
