SABBAT / Dreamweaver : Reflections of Our Yesterdays (1989)

Dreamweaver is a concept album based on the book The Way of Wyrd: Tales of an Anglo-Saxon Sorcerer (1983) by Brian Bates.  It has Andy Sneap shredding the guitars with speed and precision, and the wonderful Martin Walkyier on vocals (does he ever breathe?).  Those two together made music so creative and vibrant that it was never bettered by either man separately.  Chock full of thrashy riffs and occasional weird Maiden-esqe musical changes that take a few listens to make sense of, the album is a genuine timeless classic.
