2011 in Review: Some Bands Never Change

AMON AMARTH: SURTUR RISING
Amon Amarth changes ever so slightly, to the point that each album is only slightly different than the one before it, but if you listened to this album as well as their first one back to back, it's obvious something has changed, it's just not noticeable unless you really pay attention.

AMORPHIS: THE BEGINNING OF TIMES
Obviously Amorphis has changed a great deal since their early days, but they have been releasing the same album each time for the last three or four times. I do not really have a problem with it in this band's case though because their progressive metal output blows their death metal stuff out of the water in my mind. Maybe that's just me though.

DEICIDE: TO HELL WITH GOD
Deicide has released the same album time after time after time. While their Anti-Christian lyrics are ridiculously over-the-top, Glen Benton seems like such a goofball that they have become less threatening and more humorous over the years. Benton does his own thing and really could care less about what any one thinks of it. Particularly Jesus.
