This is the hardest yet for me

All 4 albums are masterful for their genre

and are so uniquely different

A Chorus:
Has 2 of my fave Showdown songs ever: A Monument Encased In Ash, and From The Mouth Of Gath Comes Terror. I love every song on here, never skip any. Plus Iscariot is beast

Temptation:
This album was my childhood (I still am one) but i mean like at 6 and 7 years old when this came out I played it to death, this is one of the few albums I have memorized and could sing any song if you asked me. Standout tracks are: All of them

Back Breaker:
This is probably my least played album out of the 4, but in no way is it any less good. This is a brutal Panteraesk onslaught. Standout tracks: The first 5, and the 2 ballads. I remember when I was playing Temptation and my dad told me he got a new CD. We went out to the car to listen and I was like " this is the same band?"

Blood In The Gears:
My 2nd most played album, every song is awesome, each has a awesome riff. This album is a cross between Back Breaker and Temptation in style, just like Back Breaker was a cross between A Chorus and Temptation.

Overall: I gotta go with Temptation, not just nostalgia, cause every album has some nostalgia around it. But to me its a album that will never happen again, unlike the others where they eventually can be overplayed or I skip a couple. I can never see my self getting tired of Temptation or skipping a song.

Easily "Back Breaker" for me.

I didn't like them when I first heard "ACOO". Then I came across "Temptation" and played that a lot. I was anticipating "Back Breaker" by the time it came out. I played that thing non-stop. To me it is perfect. The sound, mix, and themes. "BITG" was worth it just for "A Man Named Hell", but I felt the second half was weak. Since then I have come to really appreciate "ACOO" and think the toughest part for me, is the production is a little weak. I have a live album they did, and those old songs are great on there, as the sound is better imo.

Temptation easily. It adds a southern metal feel that is lacking in Christian metal.

Temptation easily for me, though I enjoy all of their albums to differing degrees. There's just something about the hooks and charm of TCMW that puts it over the top for me. Awesome album. Metal 2

EASILY Temptation.  EASILY.  Maybe not as heavy as the rest of the catalog, but far superior songwriting.  Just has a special "something" to it....

Chorus without contest for me.

Although it looks like I'm alone for now!

Blood In The Gears. I like all of four, but that one feels like the fullest realization of their sound.

That's me as well.  It is the only one that I own.  I don't like the vocal style of the others.

Love them all, and LOVE this band.  Would be so excited to have new music from them.  But, I vote for "Temptation", simply for the catchy, memorable songs, which happen to be great live.

I see that two members are currently listed as members of Demon Hunter. Is anyone else doing anything now?
