    A thread for albums you're re-listening to after a long time out. Perhaps you've always loved them, perhaps you are trying again after a frustrating experience when it came out. Has time changed anything?

    I'm re-listening Morbid Angel - Kingdoms Disdained. This is a terrific death metal record. It's best in headphones because the guitars are too low against the drums, but the tracks themselves and the guitar work are awesome. Some really weird stuff on there while never leaving the death metal realm.

    I've been going back and listening to a lot of metalcore stuff that came out when I was in high school, Unearth and As I Lay Dying at the moment.

    Tool, actually. The whole catalog.
    I was super into them when I was younger, one of the main bands that got me into metal and playing drums (and then guitar). Listening to the same stuff got old after a while though, and then after a bit I gave up hope on a new album ever coming out, and their albums got added to the pile of 'records that are still on my phone, but haven't been played in years.'
    So when we finally got a release day, I went back and dusted up on all the old stuff and it's been great. Almost like listening to it all the first time again.

    Misfits and punk music a LOT earlier this year. Including bands like My Chemical Romance who frankly were absolutely TOP-tier at that emo-pop-punk-meets-metal-lite thing they did. The Used, Anberlin, System Of A Down, lots of metalcore and similar. I definitely slept on some of those alternative/pop punk acts.

    Some friends of mine tried to get me into Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, etc., a while back and it didn't quite land at the time, but I find lately I'm sort of "getting it" in a way I didn't before. Been listening a lot to Hand. Cannot. Erase.

    Listen to Anathema - Weather Systems at least once. If you don’t like it then no worries. But then the next time you feel sad listen to it again. Be prepared for big time sad boi hours.

    Lately at work I've been spinning Intervals' first two EPs. Great, in your face, djent shit. I wish they would play some of those songs live even these days.

    The Beatles and Beach Boys were the most recent groups I re-listened to. My next one to listen to is Rush because the last time I’d really listened to Rush was after they’d announced they were done, and I decided to listen to all their albums including live albums. That took about 2 weeks to listen to each album and I felt so burned out at the end, that I would hardly ever listen to Rush.

    Now, I’d like to get back into Rush since it’s great music I feel like I should keep listening to.

    ^ I dunno how old you are but I found that this didn't sort of become my jam until my 30s.

    So, weird way to rediscover music, but our DnD groups like having background music during the game. I'm planning to put together a campaign for Starfinder, and I needed some sci-fi tunes to go with it.

    I forgot how much I loved The Luna Sequence.

    Impending Doom’s death will reign album. I got this album when it came out and thought it had some decent songs on it. Fast forward to now I’m enjoying it a lot more than I did. I really enjoy the way Brooke Reeves(?) does the his vocals.

    I first heard Celtic Frost's Monotheist when it came out, but never really appreciated it until very recently

    I rediscovered my undying love for Mr. Bungles s/t over the past few months and finally replaced my "There's a tractor in my balls again" t-shirt I haven't seen in years because of it.

    Another one that I rediscovered: Metal Church's Debut album "Metal Church", probably their best album ever and incidentally their first! On LP, of course :deathm:
