Gonna retract something:

Intoxicate O.S. (which you'd know for Ravine, which I entered in the second music tournament) was a runner-up for the list, but just barely failed to make the cut.

Hahaha, no. I was going to put Zero Nexus here, but then I realized that Zero Nexus has no **** reason to be above either of these two albums. That, and because this album actually does deserve to be up here, if not because it's superior to Sinthetic. I actually had a lot of issues with 19-17 (which, along with my depression, kept me from updating this list), so I ended up replacing all of them; go me! All of the replacements felt pretty natural, though, and this one is no exception. This isn't going to happen again because I know that I like the rest of my list, so...

17. Intoxicate O.S. - Shade Empire

Ravine: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=bVPINzkMblY
Chemical God: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=PhMwMVuuSIQ
Bloodstar: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=EskDw9SgltQ

I'd say that this is roughly on par with Sinthetic in quality, and on a good day, this might not be up to par with Sinthetic. That said, I like this album more; this is what really sold me on Shade Empire after Sinthetic failed to completely attract me at the time. This is the counter-argument to Sinthetic; whereas Sinthetic is beautiful, this album is **** ugly as sin. Don't be fooled by Ravine's strange presence on this album, because the rest of it is loud, twisted and very industrial. All of this while the vocalist adopts an even more disruptive and twisted tone to compliment this work. That said, those are compliments; those details are what makes this album interesting and entertaining. This hasn't elicited as many compliments as Sinthetic or even Zero Nexus (for whatever reason), but I found this album to be much more memorable than its siblings.

Also, I wonder how many albums I'm going to go through before Random realizes that I'm updating again.
