C.B. Murdoc: Nonplus Ultra taken from Here Be Dragons. Released 24 June, 2016. ————————————————————————————————- I’m not the biggest fan of technical death metal. To me, a large majority of it is style-over-substance; a flurry of notes and chaos with nothing that sticks. C.B. Murdoc is different. Although they could easily be placed into the technical death metal genre, each […]

Thursday, March 24, 2016 Artist: Flotsam and Jetsam Track: “Never to Reveal“ Flotsam and Jetsam have faster more epic albums (Doomsday for the Deceiver), thrashier albums (No Place For Disgrace), more adventurous albums (The Cold), and even more commercial albums (Drift). None of them hold a candle to Cuatro. When Cuatro was released in 1992, it seemed like Flotsam and Jetsam were finally going […]

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 Artist: AURORA Track: “Running With the Wolves“ RIYL: Bat For Lashes, Marissa Nadler and Alexa Borden. Let’s get this out of the way first: AURORA’s music comes with a glowing endorsement from Katy Perry, but don’t let that stop you from checking this out. There’s something strange about a lot of the […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 10. Dance Gavin Dance – Instant Gratification [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] Holy shit. Hooooooooooooooooooly shit, you guys. Just picture me, sitting here, profound grin across my face as I read every single comment about Bring Me The Horizon coming in at #42… Let’s just say I’m truly thankful to be able to join […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 30. Cult Leader – Lightless Walk [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] In 2012, I felt a renewed faith in “heavy” music. When Gaza dropped No Absolutes In Human Suffering, it was refreshing, to say the least. Three years later, Cult Leader have risen from the ashes and released an album mired in […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 50. Fightstar – Behind the Devil’s Back [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] Following a surprise hiatus and the ongoing reunion rumors of front-man Charlie Simpson’s seemingly buried boy-band past, anyone could be forgiven for thinking that 2009’s superb Be Human would be Fightstar’s swan song. However, the English post-hardcore, come-alternative metal quartet […]

Full Disclosure: Everybody will have different experiences based on their preferences, their familiarity with one product or another, as well as what hardware they’re using. In the interest of transparency, this is my brief history and a list of test devices. I’ve been a member of Spotify Premium since July of 2011 and I’ve never […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 10. Against Me! – Transgender Dysphoria Blues [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] Stream: “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” (3:16) From the opening punch of the track of the same name, Transgender Dysphoria Blues is a haymaker of unapologetic transgender perspective made to come across in one of the few avenues of emotion we […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 30. The Antlers – Familiars [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Facebook] Stream: “Intruders” (5:25) By now, everyone knows what to expect from a record by The Antlers, and Familiars sees the American indie rock/dream pop outfit choosing not to buck that trend by tunneling even deeper into the niche that they’ve been […]

50-31 | 30-11 | 10-1 50. Thou – Heathen [Official Site] // [Spotify] // [Unofficial Facebook] Stream: “Into the Marshlands” (6:58) Thou have been creating some of the most soul crushing doom metal ever set upon human ears for the last several years. Heathen is no different. It’s an unholy manifestation of distorted guitars and the burliest of […]

It’s been a pretty good year for music. We had quite a few bands get back together and make some excellent music. There was also quite  a few other artists that just continue to churn out quality releases, and of course there were also a few surprises. Anyway, different people use different criteria to make […]
