My Latest Delvings

So, I have been silent in my ratings for awhile. You know what? Go to hell. I am lazy. Even my noexistent cat Muffins says so. Ohhh, you may say he is not there; trust me, she is. Did I contradict myself? Oh well. I digress. Bands I have listened to lately.
1Minus the Bear
Planet of Ice


They have a Botch member, so it was inevitable I would find them. Amazing stuff.
2Cradle of Filth
Midian


My old manager was all about these guys' MTV albums, so it took me awhile to get into them. Amazing material in their old albums
3Gallows
Orchestra of Wolves


After diverging into Hardcore, I found several bands; this is one of them. Highly recommend this album to everyone.
4Novembers Doom
The Novella Reservoir


After seeing a review for this, I checked it out. Punishing riffs, fantastic vocals. One of my new favorites.
5Enslaved
Eld


Classic, classic, classic. If there is one things these guys have down, it is atmosphere; guitars are a close second. Highly recommend.
6Pelican
The Fire in our Throats Will Beckon...


Easily the most amazing hour of instrumental music I have ever heard. Beautiful melodies and awesome compositions.
7High on Fire
Death is This Communion


After seeing they were on Gigantour (which I did not go to because I am lazy), I checked them out. Their harmonies are amazing.
8Anaal Nathrakh
Eschaton


The most extremely brutal thing I have ever heard. Words cannot describe the level of noise these guys create.
9Cynic
Focus


I had not heard of them at all until a news article, but I am extremely glad I checked them out. One of the most creative things I have ever heard.
10Blotted Science
The Machinations of Dementia


One of the most varied albums to grace my ears, the technicality on this album is at a level that I am surprised it turned out so amazingly.
11Streetlight Manifesto
Somewhere In The Between


My happy music! The only album to ever get me singing along.
12Porcupine Tree
Deadwing


Fantastic material, regardless of what you want to call them. Everyone should give them a chance.
13Dissection
Storm of the Lights Bane


Another amazing classic in Black Metal. Everyone should check this out if they have not already.
14Burst
Origo


Props to The_Wizard for introducing me to these guys; really unique stuff. Reminds me of Botch, so of course, I love them.
15Fair to Midland
Fables From a Mayfly


Again with the unique music. These guys have something serious going; perhaps the new SOAD; hopefully without the later career suck.
16Hypocrisy
Virus


Punishing Swedish Death Metal. I cannot get enough of the opening track (NO, not the intro). One of my favorite music transitions on that song.
17Novembre
The Blue


Simple name, amazing music. Worth a look from everyone.
18Isis
Panopticon


They are my heavy Agalloch. I could listen to these guys while performing any action. All their material is great.
19Refused
The Shape of Punk to Come


Absolute classic in Hardcore. Should be listened to by all fans of Hardcore.
20 Kittens
Meow!


I like cats. There. I said it. No, this is not an album; merely my expression of my fondness for felines.
