Angry Metal-Fi: The Best and Worst Sounding Albums of 2019

“Metal-Fi? One has got to wonder if the serious lack of updates on the site is because of these issues or are they in fact the root cause? I honestly don’t know. Certainly, neither Dave nor I could have possibly foreseen that our unannounced hiatus last year would kick off Ragnarök. But unfortunately, that’s what all of the facts seem to indicate. Our bad.” Deaf and taxes.

Angry Metal-Fi: The Best and Worst Sounding Albums of 2017

“2017 was an interesting year for metal. My partner in crime, Dave-Fi claims it was another crappy year for dynamics in general, and unfortunately given the entries below, it’s hard to argue with him. However, I would counter and say that they were still quite a number of good to great sounding releases too. In fact, Dave and I had a harder time weeding out the truly terrible sounding albums from the really great sounding ones which is always a good sign.” Sound is in the ear of the beholder.

“Sure, we weren’t exactly charitable toward the last two Megadeth albums, but who among us hasn’t been rooting for Dave Mustaine to get his shit together and give us another Rust in Peace or at least another Endgame. For my part, I’d pretty much given up on seeing that day, especially after the dumpster fire that was Super Collider. With major line up changes (Kiko Loureiro in for guitar god Chris Broderick and Chris Adler in for Shawn Drover), blood was in the water and it seemed Dystopia might end up an ironic statement on the state of Megadeth‘s health.” Time to turn your head and cough, Dave as we offer a double examination of the state of Dystopia.

“It’s that time again where we extol those releases that exemplify high caliber production and condemn those which exact tyranny on all of our collective volume knobs. 2015 was a break out year for production in metal if you ask me. Not because the percentage of releases had higher DR scores mind you. Quite the opposite actually. But because you guys have made production a real talking point across the web.”

“We’ve been fielding requests for a while asking us to create an Angry Metal Guy forum where the good commentors of this website could come together to have better/more-in-depth conversations. As opposed to moving from post-to-post, criticizing the reviewers and whining about how late the Record(s) o’ the Month post is, the reasoning goes, readers want to be able to have a steady place to whine, complain, and criticize.”
