I thought it'd be interesting to hear which classic albums you fellas are aware of, yet never heard (the quotes are there because in some circumstances "classics" might be subjective, a la early Satyricon etc.). A lot of mine off the top of my head seem to be mostly relegated to thrash for whatever reason. For example: the first four Metallica, the first five Slayer, and the first four Megadeth. Obviously I've heard a few random tracks off of the majority of them, but I've never sat down and gave them a listen all the way through.

As a funny aside, I recall some forum member saying that he's owned Rotting Christ's Thy Mighty Contract for years and has purposefully never listened to it as he was keeping it for a sort of a black metal "listen in case of emergency" album. I suppose in the case that current BM took an unbearable turn for the worst. Laughing

Anyways, have at it.

Sadus and Watchtower come to mind, can't really think of anything else though.

I'm pretty sure there's lots of death metal classics I haven't heard. got "too quickly" into black metal (think scandinavian 2nd wave). off the top of my head:

-judas priest's classic albums sans british steel, which I recently bought on a whim at a flea-market. I might catch up on the others soon.
-death - spiritual healing; I've owned all other death full-lengths at some point, but none of them has clicked with me except SBG. never bothered to check out this last one. I'm fairly sure I won't like it anyway.
-obituary - the end complete; I know/have owned the 1st, 2nd and 4th albums and simply can't get into those repulsive (in a very bad way) vocals. just not my cup.

tbc.

I really /honestly only listen to death and black metal ( with very, very few exceptions), so there are tons of classics that I've never heard.

Great /interesting thread idea.

Only Voivod I've ever heard is Order From Chaos' cover of War & Pain. I don't know why I've never heard any classic thrash stuff, but it is what it is I guess...

@into the pit, do yourself a favor and check out any and every album pre British Steel. I know this could be said about basically any album(s) that I expect to get thrown around in this thread, but JP is really something special!

Voivod is such a great and unique band and labelling them as simply thrash does the band a disservice IMO. One band that definitely deserves an investigation for anyone who's a Metalhead and hasn't already checked them out.

I definitely enjoy OFC's Voivod cover. I'll try to make a mental note to pickup a CD or two if there's any cheap ones floating around. However. with the constant deluge of new albums that we all wade through nowadays it can be easy to forget said mental notes like that unfortunately. Laughing

None. I've heard everything the day it came out and knew instantly if it would be a classic or not.


Actually it seems like every day there's a new classic I've missed out on. Today's was Sanctuary - Refuge Denied.

Sometimes I wonder what kind of shit you people use your time and money, instead of checking out some basic classics. But that's just nowadays! Some definitely know Ancient Records roster better than knowing a single album from Rotting Christ, Slayer or Megadeth.

Shocked You're missing out man. At least give The Celtic Winter a shot.

As for me (only talking about genres I enjoy, for example I couldn't care less about power metal I'm missing out on), the first thing that comes to mind is I never really cared for or delved much into the Greek black metal scene with the exception of early Rotting Christ. I've only briefly listened to Varathron and Necromantia. The Greek black metal sound just isn't really my thing.
