unbeliever

You're going to pay for your sins

Immolated to me

I am what evil brings

Eyes filled with terror

You cry while i'm doing the deed

I hear your prayer and laugh

And let you taste your own meat


"Simon the Starchild, the Chosen one, I am the Adversary, the king, my son.

Cast aside your Hesitation and summon the ghouls.

Invocate the Spirits of the long forgotten Souls.

Betrayal and denial, the Fuel to my fire.

The seed of darkness takes my power higher and higher"

What this is:

This is a discussion thread to share thoughts, memories, or first impressions of albums which have lived through the decades. Maybe you first heard this when it came out or are just hearing it now. Even though this album may not be your cup of tea, rest assured there are some really diverse classics and underrated gems on the calendar. Use this time to reacquaint yourself with classic metal records or be for certain you really do not "get" whatever record is being discussed.

Band: Acrostichon // Ceremonial Oath

Album: Engraved in Black // The Book of Truth

Released: July 1993

Welcome to Shreddit's [REC CENTER] where we bring together all of the recommendation threads and try to just shout over everyone to find new bands. This is a combination of "If I like X then I'll like X threads" and also all of the rogue rec threads which pop up from newcomers. This thread will be around every 2 weeks to help everyone from novice to adept with new music recommendations.

Before we allow everyone to go mingle, please look at this introductory packet as it may answer some of your questions.


  1. Listen to the Banned/Restricted bands -------------->
  2. Listen to this List
  3. Listen to records from the last few years
  4. Listen to records from 2001 - 2015

Already familiar with some of the classics and staples but want to expand your appreciation for the subgenres of heavy metal (thrash, death, black, power, heavy, doom)?

Visit our newly designed WIKI


Do you want to do what I just said but have no idea what any of those words mean and cant tell the difference between death metal and a pineapple?

Go to this site


Do you need crash course in the last 30 years of extreme metal for a job interview, paper, eulogy, or just a chance to one up another person on the internet?

Our knowledgeable staff is here to help


Do you know metal but just do not have any direction but are willing to put in some work to find new bands?

Go on this Adventure


Want to take a trip around the world and sample metal by region? Stamp your passport here


Do you just want to browse the knowledgeable archive of this sub? Community Lists, Primers, and other Quality Material


Do you have a really unique request? Probably not. Look in here first. Recommendations for Frequently Requested Bands (FRB)


Do you already know what you want to ask and nothing I just said applied? Then step right up post in the [REC CENTER]. While you are typing, allow me to remind you of good recommendation inquiry.

  • Look first before you type. Your question may already been answered by someone posing as you and trying to steal your life.

  • Be as specific as possible. "I would like more bands like Devin Townsend," or "Give me some more stoner doom from the 90's" or "Can I have some black thrash from Mongolia" all helps others give you better feedback. Do not just list random things you like such as " I like DevilDriver, Black Sabbath, Deiselboy, Call of Duty and Hotpockets...give me a band."

  • Give important information if you are already familiar with the genre. This is not a murder mystery dinner where one has to withhold vital information. If you post "Give me some more thrash" it might be important to mention "oh yeah, I already know Demolition Hammer, Hobbs Angel of Death, and Razor, otherwise you are getting Metallic'a first three albums and everything Slayer did in the 80's.
