A long time ago, we asked a bunch of bands to submit columns on the following topic: Five Albums That Will Change Your Life. Today, we bring you an entry provided by Riley Strong from Desecrator.
Metallica’s Ride The Lightning
It’s clearly the best album that’s ever been written! It was the perfect progression for Metallica after the ferocity of Kill ‘Em All.
It still has the lingering influence of a notable angry redhead — but shows songwriting development and maturity.
Pallbearer’s Sorrow and Extinction
If you’re into “fast” and you don’t understand “slow,” this and a bottle of red wine (without the glass) is the perfect way to slow your heart rate!
Doom with audible vocals so your chick will dig it!
White snake’s self-titled LP
4. W.A.S.P.’s The Crimson Idol
W.A.S.P. are such an underrated band due to being lumped into the glam scene because of their stage attire. Blake’s song writing and concepts are much deeper than any other band at that time — and the songs have way more metal influence than a lot of people think.
Don’t write them off simply because of the buzz-saw crotch-piece!
5. NOT Mötley Crüe’s Shout at The Devil
It’s influence is a farce — it’s imagery is engineered and it’s songs are produced.
It’s talent is lacking… go to bed instead…
