It's been three years since I first made an account on this site. Ah, how time flies. List is digs.
|1||Lost Salt Blood Purges|
The Voids We All Long For
My new album, comes out on Monday, March 30th. Pre-order here, or just wait until it comes out for a name-your price download: https://lostsaltbloodpurges.bandcamp.com/album/the-voids-we-all-long-for
|2||The Mountain Goats|
Beat the Champ
This album turns out to be half/half for me. Half the tracks I'm just not feeling, the other half feel like the best tracks Darnielle's done.
New History Warfare Vol 2: Judges
By the Throat
|8||maudlin of the Well|
My Fruit Psychobells... A Seed Combustible
|10||The Slow Death|
One of the best albums of the year so far. RIP, Gregg Williamson.
Swallow Swouming Mass
A U R O R A
|14||The Great Old Ones|
Testimony of the Ancients
Revelations of the Ethereal
|19||Howls of Ebb|
Vigils of the 3rd Eye
Choirs of the Eye
|21||Spawn of Possession|
Blue Lambency Downward
Suspended from the Cosmic Altaar
Another favourite from this year. Really great tech death with an organic production job with old school influences. Reminds me of Morbid Angel, but in a more "brutal tech" way. Speaking of Morbid Angel...
Abominations of Desolation
In the L..L..Library Loft
Engulfed In Desolation
Transcendence into the Peripheral
Ashore the Celestial Burden
Spun this consistently since it was released last year. I can't say that for many albums. Modern classic.
Shaped By Aeolian Winds
Great black metal from this year. They have a magical way with melodies. Name your price download: https://haethen.bandcamp.com/
The Bizarre Machinery Of Universe
This is a really overlooked tech death album. Really breathtaking stuff, such a pity it's not as well known as it should be.
Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue
Denouncing the Holy Throne
Really digging this one. Has a lot of different styles going on, but it meshes well. Makes for an interesting album that I find myself going back to a lot.
|36||Cultes Des Ghoules|
Pretty much the best modern black metal band by a mile. One of the only black metal bands that truly makes use of the genre's capabilities. Think where Beherit left with Drawing Down the Moon, then add Attila on vocals (not actually Attila, but Mark of the Devil is extraordinarily similar, but even better and more diverse). Plus some healthy Bathory influence and you have the ultimate black metal band. Raw, ritualistic. Perfection.
Descend Into the Absurd
Circle the Wagons
When am I ever not digging Darkthrone?
A Blaze in the Northern Sky
Pretty much never. I'm always digging Darkthrone. Best band ever.
WE ARE A BLAZE IN THE NORTHERN SKY, THE NEXT THOUSAND YEARS ARE OURS.
