I know that we've already had a poll for this classic band, but a new release is out and it deserves to be included. So here it is. The updated 2013 Abigor poll.



Ps. I had to remove Satanized because of the limited poll options.

Well let's see... Verwüstung superb, Orkblut otherwise great but has some of the most awful, tacky, over the top cheesy keyboard interludes I've ever heard in black metal. Nachthymnen possibly my favorite. Opus IV still strong albeit perhaps a bit more inconsistent, but has the most spectacular ending of all Abigor albums.

Having mentioned Moonstone and black metal previously, I don't think it's a coincidence that there is an instrumental called Beneath A Steel Sky on Verwüstung, which was, of course, an old adventure game released in 1994 as well. Sounds like a .mod mess too!

I hated Supreme Immortal Art first, but managed grasp it ultimately. I can see how some people still struggle with that one. I think everything that followed that album is either just ok or hasn't sparked enough interest.

Anyone noticed that the drums on those old albums are pretty damn good? Intricate and diverse, not exactly a given when it comes to this kind of music.

I'm sure all Stratovarius fans should also know about the similarity between Weeping Midwintertears and 4000 Rainy Nights, heh... maybe Timo Tolkki was into these guys.

I picked Sulphur. I've been following the band since Nachthymnen, and feel a great affection for all of their releases, but there's something about Sulphur that just blew my mind. To me it represents the absolute apex of their career (so far...). The crossroads where their past, present and future connects and becomes something so much larger than life. The baroque of their past, the extreme technicality, the perfectly placed synths, the multi-movement structure. It's like Bach on fucking acid. Just out of this world.

I voted for the debut. Pretty sure there was a thread about 6 months ago with the same purpose; as most of the current topics...

Polling largely the same group of people every 6 months won't yield results that are different from the initial poll.
