Best Album of 2004?

#1 Post by The Extremist » Sat Nov 27, 2004 1:41 pm

Necrophagist - Epitaph

Its the best technical death metal album i have ever heard, everything just works so well. The Amazing guitar work, the amazing bass work and the total mind blowing Drum work on this album just make it one of the best albums i have ever heard.

Well, I was going to say Arch Enemy: Anthems of Rebellion, but then it dawned upon me, that it's from 2003..
So I'm going to go with the obvious choice and say Dave Weiner's album Shove the Sun Aside is the best album released this year.

One question, though. How does the Live at Budokan differ from all the other DT live discs? I mean I have a few, and I have seen them live as well and, honestly, their performances tend to get rather much the same. But I am still thinking about buying it. Oh, the doubt!

Cant say 'best' but Dave Weiner's 'STSA' and JS's 'Is There Love In Space?' albums rate very highly in my buys of 2004. 8)
