Belated Birthday

So it was my Birthday a couple of days ago (21). As a somewhat belated celebration, the following is a list of albums from each year I've been around, picking my favourite per year (stealing Ashcrash's idea, my apologies mate). Also, got an electric guitar, so that's pretty damn cool.
1Mount Eerie
A Crow Looked At Me


2017
Feels weird to call this a 'favourite', as its hard to enjoy in the normal sense of the word. Regardless, its still a low key masterpiece and absolutely harrowing.
