Wasn't Sepultura becoming quite big at this period? Guess they started to become very popular at this time.


Definitely. Roots was the commercial peak of their career.

Misery Loves Co.
It seemed like industrial metal was going to be the future but it sort of fizzled out.

I bought some pretty shitty Earache albums in the mid and late 90s, including those two by Misery Loves Co. and that amazingly terrible Dub War crap, just because it was on Earache. I do still listen to The Haunted debut on occasion.

I really like some of the Misery Loves Co. stuff. Their last album is excellent if you ignore the cringeworthy lyrics and a couple of the songs altogether (No Exit and Never Gonna Grow Up, both of which are the definition of horrible).

Maybe my friends and I were out of the loop in the 90s, but I don't remember people really giving too much of a shit about Nightfall. I was the first in my group to buy the CD and I didn't get my copy until early 2000. Nightfall seems like one of those records that's popularity has grown over time. Granted, I'm American and the whole power metal thing wasn't really happening here during the 90s. That's definitely shaping my perspective.

Covenant, though; what the fuck? How the fuck did Nuclear Blast manage to make them a thing in the 90s? I heard one song on a comp and knew they sucked. But I knew multiple people who bought that record. Enough copies moved that the CD has gone through multiple printings. Boggles the mind.

I only mentioned BG because i saw lots of adds in magazines. maybe more so in the 2000's. I felt like for a while, everytime I opened a metal magazine, Blind Guardian had a full page add in it...

Manowar made it into normal newspapers when they toured for Triumph of Steel.

Yes, me.

Marc Grewe was a fucking attention whore and wannabe-posterboy and "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic" definitively fits the show of hyped 90s crap.

Oh, BTW: Alex Krull and Atrocity also deserved a head-shot back then.

Megadeth's Countdown was another big seller.
