Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Brand new this week is the Tuesday Top 10. My 10 favorite (or least favorite) whatever I decided to write about. And of course the best place to start is with my favorite metal records.
10. Seventh Angel – The Torment
The Torment is Seventh Angel’s debut record. The British were doing thrash metal just fine. For their debut Arkley wasn’t pulling any punches lyrically. The lyrics are dark and violent, and although Arkley has admitted he regrets the lyrical themes of The Torment (as Lament for the Weary would be more subtle), the aggressive and violent nature or The Torment, create a great metal record. Although vocally it’s a little redundant, it is a thrash album and the music more then makes up for it.
