Angus - Warrior Of the World (5:08-ish)

Or Dio which it sounds a lot like. It just needs more "yeahs", "mm-mms" and "look outs!" in it. Well it's a song about rocking the town and stealing souls with the metal rock which probably would make them come across like Thor if they were into body building and bending steel with their jaws. There's an absolutely massive chorus (first at 1:52) which indeed makes me want to rock all night and some great leads throughout. But why call your band "Angus", it's not exactly the most inspiring name you could come up with.

The Crime Is Life Metal. The Sentence... Of Death (same length as the rest)

Out of all of the names I've given to my mixtapes this one has to be the coolest. Sixteen tracks of totally crazy death and thrash metal, 100% evil and endorsed by Satan so what are you waiting for,

Go fetch.

Sextrash - Black Church (2:23-ish)

This song is total black metal, with possession and perversion of belief taking the stage over perversion of the typical Sextrash variety. (0:05) Disgusted screams are always a great way to start a song and then there are those totally decrepit vocals (0:11) that sound almost Von-like. Almost mind you, they aren't that echoing I don't think anything is. (1:59-2:16) There's only time for a short solo just stuck there on the end like they had to include one but I'm cool with that, especially with music this relentless and 'hammering'. UGH!

Realm - Theseus and the Minotaur (4:19-ish)

You want to know what a fucking cool band is? Realm is a fucking cool band and completely off the hook. This was on one of their demos but where I heard it was at the back of the reissue of Endless War (totally boss sleeve art on that one). Nice lead work at the start which is a highlight of any Realm song but then again, the everyone in this band is a highlight. (0:48) Vocals are in the high range but it's nothing like Toxik whom I guess are a pretty close comparison. Nothing beats that out. There's bass all over this and the solos (2:59-3:24 and the little one near the beginning) just do it for me. Oddly this song doesn't sound as 'nervous' as the other songs on Endless War if that's what you could say about it.
