    I listened to the Mastodon album a lot too and really liked it but its one of those where I'm not sure if it was the debut of a new band I'd have given as much time to. Like already being a fan of theirs definitely swayed me into giving it a lot more time.

    I don't really like Emperor of Sand that much, a couple of decent tracks but find it quite a boring listen. Cold Dark Place on the other hand was one of my favourites of 2017, great atmosphere.

    I think this was my favourite album last year, too - I only actually listened to it in November or so but now I can't stop listening to it. So good. I bought another copy as a Christmas presents for a friend. Dude's voice is great.

    On a tangent... I've always written off Alter Bridge as "That band that came after that Christian band", but watching someone else listen to it has made me realise they actually have some interesting stuff.

    Good channel, it's quite interesting having that step back to see stuff we all know and love heard objectively through the ears of people unfamiliar with the genres.

    @warlockuk That channel is great!! I'm so into seeing them start to "get" metal. the Hallowed be thy name one is brilliant.

    I love those guys. The only thing that bugs me is whenever I watch them the recommended videos show other 'reaction' channels reacting to exactly the same songs (though none of the ones I've actually watched have an ounce of the charm of the Lost in Vegas guys). Seems there are loads of these type of channels and they all get bombarded by people requesting exactly the same predictable stuff to them.

    Haha! I love watching them lose their shit to Megadeth, and being bored or put off by other stuff.

    They're definitely doing the best version of this channel. The other ones just seem to be people smiling and nodding followed by "I like this" and some other hyperbole that doesn't actually match the reaction they seemed to have.

    Oh yeah, they were so unimpressed by Blood and Thunder, which for me...is fair.
