Pentacle > anything (although Mortem rules and are criminally underrated!). Cool

I'll have to blast Mortem ASAP if you guys really think that cuz to me, Pentacle's nonstop attack of catchy, brilliantly written riffs is the stuff of legends up there with the likes of GBK/Arghoslent etc

Pentacle is good, no doubt, but in the ancient spirit, I will have to go with Sadistic Intent and Mortem for a better discography even though SI has not made a full length yet.


And yes, blast Demon Tales.

Embrace the Death is top Asphyx album for me because it is far darker and more obscure sounding than either of the other classic early Asphyx albums, The Rack and Last One on Earth, great albums as both those are.

Theo Looman's vocals are also darker, heavier, and more evil sounding. Van Drunen's vocals are very good on the albums he was part of, but I thought his vocal work in Pestilence was better.

Surprisingly, long time Asphyx members who continued to be part of the band after the Van Drunen era later regretted the decision to include Van Drunen as part of the band, stating that ultimately his vocals were not suitable for the band's sound. They also stated that the vocals on the self titled album were more what the band's sound needed.

Personally, I thought Van Drunen's vocals for Asphyx were sick and did suit the recordings he was part of, but I still think his best work was with Pestilence. I also still prefer the early vocal work of Theo Loomans as the ultimate for Asphyx.

And yes, blast Demon Tales.

My favourite as well. But guys, don't get too anal with those comparisons! All of them are great and play in a different league in that old (coffin) spirit. Only Sadistic Intent released a poorish release (that one with the Darkthrone cover on it) but I'm anxiously awaiting the full-length that most likely won't happen. Until then I'll blast Coffin Texts' one, which didn't possess the same charm as their 95 demo but is still way above the average DM band of these days.

Back to the original topic, of course I love Theo's vocals, as well as Wannes' and Ron's, but MvD is also one of my top vocalists on both Pestilence LP's and early Asphyx. Is that drunkard reunion (sp. from a few years ago on) and the rather life-metallish Hail of Bullets what I don't stand so well. But, once again, I don't really get the hype for the "most epic and melodic" Bolt Thrower later albums, so...
