The "CD Haul" thread

How about a thread about everyone's recent disc purchases?

yesterday, i picked up
Toxic Holocaust - Hell On Earth
Opprobrium - Discerning Forces
Dream Theater - When Dream and Day Unite (again...)
Arsis - United in Regret


Toxic holocaust is awesomely hilarious... its like, riffs from the first metallica album with vocals ripped off from Bathory..and it was recorded in 2005 by a guy with billy idol hair named "Joel Grind".
Opporobrium is the guys from the ORIGINAL Incubus. And it sounds brutally awesome. you guys know about the other two.. I traded in a bucnh of dream theater for Iced Earth a few years ago and always regretted getting rid of WDADU, so i bought a used copy for 6$.

Wow. I wondered what happened to them. I'll have to check that out...

Division - American metal that doesn't suck. Much. Even on Facebook, and Soundclick might eventually be updated, too.

its pretty awesome, its all 4 of the original Incubus dudes. It sounds like a mix between tech. death metal and Chaos AD Sepultura (All 4 of the guys are from Rio De Janeiro). There's some songs with some christian overtones on there, but eh, no big deal to me. the disc is badass over all.

He has an album before that called Evil Never Dies which is a bit better, as well as a four-way split with three other bands I don't recall that has all the demos.

When he plays live his backing band is the entire lineup of the Japanese band Abigail, whose stuff (especially Black Thrash Attack) you should check out if you like TH.

+1 on Incubus/Opprobrium too

I wasn't very metal this week. I picked up the (+44) album and John Meyer's new one, Continuum. The Blink 182 fan in me from when I was a kid is still there, and (+44) is a nice break from what I'm used to.

Continuum is class. John Meyer is truly talented and an excellent musician.

I - this fractal illusion burning away all structure toward the obscene
I - to cleanse, to purge, to breath eternity and smother all life
Blind-these mortal men of clay, divine in their harassed form
I-this furnace of limitless hate. Bestial, pure

Yeah, they didnt have that one in, but they played some samples for me at the CD store from some website, and it sounded cool, a bit heavier, more like late 80s thrash (Gammacide came to mind) but this one sounds MORE oldschool, like on par with Kill'em All Riffs. i'd like to pick up Evil Never Dies.

Jesus, I haven't bought CDs in ages, but just recently I went on a bit of an online buying spree that I'm kinda regretting already. Not that any of the CDs I ordered are something I'd regret, it's just that I really don't have the money to be buying any more stuff for myself right now, and Christmas is just around the bend. Oh well, this little lot should be arriving for me during the week sometime:

Liquid Tension Experiment 2
James LaBrie - Elements Of Persuasion
Pain Of Salvation - Be (DVD)
Scar Symmetry - Pitch Black Progress
Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine
Devin Townsend - Accelerated Evolution
Devin Townsend - Synchestra

A fair bit of Devy there, eh? I've been a fan of Strapping Young Lad for a while now, but never got around to getting his solo stuff. I would've liked to have grabbed Gojira - From Mars To Sirius, but they haven't had it in stock for ages.
