|2013 Was Pretty Good|
Here's a handful of albums that you've already seen before and will
Realistically in the top 20 or 30, but for my purposes, it's the AOTY. Elegy is
I only got around to this one recently, but it's definitely one of the most
solid and interesting releases of the year. Hubardo actually can hold your
attention, unlike some of the albums KD has put out in recent years.
Lie Lied Lies is one of the funnest songs released this year. Frantic and epic
Hadn't jammed death metal in a long time and this got me back into it.
Great album with all the riffs one needs. Gorguts always seems to bring the
perfect amount of melody into their dissonance, and they didn't disappoint
on this one. Best DM this year.
Black Death Horizon
The other more extreme release I enjoyed this year. The vocals left a little
to be desired in my opinion, kind of sounded like a nerd kept having his
voice crack while dealing with a severe case of strep throat. The
instruments however far make up for that
Boris Performing "Flood"
Oh, look, one of my favourite bands performing one of their best songs.
It's like if Bjork and Chelsea Wolfe had a little Kiwi child, so what's not to love?
The master again releases an excellent effort that throws in more melody
than usual and holds your attention.

Run The Jewels
Didn't know whether to include this one, but I've invested a lot of time in
this beat-brimming affair. A lot of classic tracks, and A Christmas Fucking
Miracle fits in right now.
Perfect music for this time of year. I put this on when I'm tired of Christmas
music from work and jam and the blast beats cleanse me.
mYSTERIOUS sUMMER vACATION
Ripped this EP right off someone else's list but goddammit it's good.
I was pleasantly surprised when my Anthropology prof made us watch the
video for "Dip" as part of the course. Only put this on a few times but I
have to admit it's pretty infectious and well-done.

The Future Is Cancelled
Though I'm entirely ignorant when it comes to punk, it seems like less and
less quality albums have been released recently. This one rules and it's fun
and who gives a fuck just listen to it
