I voted for:

Altars

Blessed

Formulas



The songwriting seems to be strongest on those albums, and there's a special vibe they three share that the others don't seem to possess. Especially Altars; definitely revolutionized my world.

I think my top fav has to be Gateways. this album is so epic. the drumming is completely amazing. secured limitations alone makes this album win.

Blessed are the sick is my favorite. Then Altars. Formulas because it is a bit of a comeback album. And it worked out surpisingly well.

Altars, Formulas, Blessed for me.

Altars was the most revolutionary and changed the way i looked at music completely.

Formulas, for me, is the heaviest and fastest and i love the insanity of the solos.

Invocation of the continual one :xx:

Blessed has desolate ways a day of suffering, two tracks that always bring me back to a particular time.

Blessed really stands out on it's own as an individual work- it could so easily have been overshadowed by Altars.

A

B

...and an equal tie for F and G for me, sorry I can't arsed enough to pick one.



IMHO G is sooo fucking horribly underrated (probably the most underrated in the entire MA catalog) that it's not even funny! :ra: G is much like a perfected version of D. :bang:

In this order for me

1. BATS

2. AOM

3. Covenant



It didn't take me long at all to decide.
Dumpfes Stampfen fährt durch Knochen in längst taube Gedärme

Kaltes Licht ergießt sich aus mit Angst gefüllten, groben Krügen

In verschmutzten Ecken kriechen die, die nicht mehr taumeln können

Mühe, Qual erdrückt die Schultern und straft jedes Lächeln Lügen
