10 Albums Recently Listened To That Need To Be Checked Out

10 albums that I recently bought that I believe need to be checked out ( someone of this you have probably listened to or heard of but I'm just now getting to them).
1Fuck The Facts
Die Miserable

I didn't get around to listening to this album until recently but it's definitely, to me , one of the most impressive grind release to have come out in 2011.FTF incorporate so many different ideas into their style of grindcore that it becomes more then just getting your face blown off for 35 minutes.They incorporate elements of progressive rock in the guitar riffs and there is a lot of quiet settle moments in the tracks like "Alone" and even hints of drone with wailing guitar harmonics on "A Cowards Existence".Just a great grin album through and through and this band definite needs more recognition in my opinion.
Confederacy of Ruined Lives

A lot of you have probably already heard this EHG album but I hadn't until a week ago.I have heard "Dope Sick" and "Take As Needed For Pain" but for some reason I never got around to hearing this but I can tell you now that this in my opinion is probably EHG's best release yet.Though not as doomy as "Dope sick", "Confederacy" has that element to it and from what I hear, there's a lot more blues influence on here as well and just sounds so kick ass!Definitely a must have for any EHG fan!
3The Atlas Moth
An Ache For The Distance

I had never heard about these guys until recently when I saw they were going on tour with Pallbearer and decided to check them out and I gotta say this album is pretty great!The guitars mixed with the atmospheric keyboards just create a sonic landscape that is mesmerizing.The combo of clean and screaming vocals works very well and sounds pretty unique.Another great album I missed out on in 2011.
4 Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Bestial Machinery (ANb discography volume 1)

I have heard a lot of other later releases from ANb and thought those were pretty good especially "Agoraocalypse".When I saw this online I thought it would be interesting to see were it all began for this band and I glad I did.Super chaotic and just down right heavy as hell Anb's early definitely does not disappoint with 136 track that altogether clock in at about 80 minutes it will definitely keep your attention for a good while.
5King Crimson
In The Court of the Crimson King

I've been really meaning to get into some old school prog rock and recently talking with my uncle he recommended King Crimson.I listened to a little bit of "Discipline" and didn't really care for it but I decided recently to give this band another try and I am glad that I did.On this album KC are at the beginnings of their career with the first KC line up and it just sounds stellar.Robert Fripp's guitar just sounds so other worldly and dirty that he could definitely live up to these so called guitar heroes.The addition of Saxophone and woodwind instruments gives these songs a life of their own and not to mention the great drum work on this album too.
The Argument

While I'm definitely not a fan of Post-Hardcore I thought this was a great album by a very unique band.I wouldn't even call these guys Post-Hardcore because their in a league all their own.With both Ian Mackaye and Guy Picciotto singing and yelling it just gives these songs a unique and solid sound.The production, especially in the drums sounds so great.A very unique album and a must listen.
7 Napalm death
The Code is Red...Long Live The Code

I have never been a Napalm fan sadly but when I bought this album last week I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.Pretty all the songs are pretty lengthy for a grind grind with songs going over 3 minute.Crazy guitars, intense vocals and drums and for once audible bass at times.I don't know what it is about this record but I like it!
8 Billie Holiday
The Legacy: 1933-1958

I've always had appreciation for a lot of old jazz music (not the shit that's being passed off as jazz today) and have always really like Billie Holidays voice but had never got a round to buying anything by her but last week I was really wanting to listen to her music so I bought this collection of her stuff. It's a great listen and Billie really doesn't disappoint.It's music that you can chill at home to or if your sad just listen to the lyrics which are pretty depressing in their own right as well.A truly great vocalist!
You Fail Me

I was on a Converge craze recently and had looked up some comments on this album online and I saw a lot of negative comments on it and gotta say I really don't get whats so bad about it.I personally think this is their best effort (that and "Axe To Fall".It's definitely a lot darker then alot of their earlier stuff but it's also not as complex (it is still complex don't get me wrong) as say "Jane Doe" was.A very solid effort by a great band.
Sorrow and Extinction

This album was a great way to start off the year!Really nice rendition of older doom metal in a more modern and original take on doom with riffs that are just super heavy while the vocals are clean and the drums sound awesome.Expecting a lot more great release from this young band in the future that's for sure!
