The Best Diggage

You need to check these the fuck out now.
1Ghost Brigade
Guided By Fire


Ever wondered what Opeth, Katatonia, and In Mourning would sound like combined? Here is your answer. A must listen and near-classic material. 4.5
2Arkan
Hilal


Thanks go to the Rec Master, Jeff Rowan, for this one. Out of Israel comes this absolute diamond of a middle eastern melodic/progressive death metal album. If you like Orphaned Land, you need to hear Arkan. 4.5
3Ereb Altor
By Honour


Huge thanks to Balls for this one. A side project of members of Isole, Ereb Altor has put together the best folk/doom album I have ever heard. Absolutely essential for folk and doom metal fans. 4.5
4Odious
Mirror of Vibrations


More amazing metal from the middle east. This is an incredibly well put together melodic black metal album that may even beat out my current favorite middle eastern mbm album, Melechesh's "Emissaries". 4.5
5The Vision Bleak
The Wolves Go Hunt Their Prey


Moonspell, Therion, and Samael fans will love this one. The Vision Bleak's best work to date, TWGHTP is a fantastic example of how "horror" metal (doom/dark metal with haunting melodies, effects, etc) should be done. Well produced and very unique. 4.5
6In Lingua Mortua
Bellowing Sea - Racked by Tempest


From members of Asmegin and Urgehal comes a quality piece of progressive folk/black metal in the vain of Enslaved. Amazing stuff. 4.5
7 Myrkgrav
Trollskau, Skr?mt og K?labrenning


A one man project from ex-Sworn member Lars Jensen, Myrkgrav is a phenomenal blend of folk, black, and viking metal comparable to that of Falkenbach, Windir, Kampfar, and early Manegarm. Absolutely essential for folk/viking metal fans. 4.5
8Arts the Beatdoctor
Transitions


An unknown gem of a jazz-strewn atmospheric hip-hop album out of the Netherlands. All hip hop fans take notice. 4.5
9Solitude Aeturnus
Beyond the Crimson Horizon


Another outstanding album from the legendary doom metallers, Beyond the Crimson Horizon gets much less attention than it deserves. A must listen for all doom metal fans. 4.5
10Neuraxis
The Thin Line Between


The new one from Neuraxis doesn't disappoint. All tech metal fans deserve to hear this one. 4.5
11Sacrifice
Soldiers of Misfortune


A criminally overlooked thrash classic with a lot of death metal influences. This needs to be heard. 4.5
12Empyrean Eclipse
Illumination Undone


Quality melodic death metal out of Denver, CO. Comparisons to The Absence, Martriden, Detonation, Miseration, and Mors Principium Est can be drawn easily. 4
13Hollenthon
Domus Mundi


Insanely epic and catchy symphonic/melodic death metal. This is a must for all fans of epic metal. 4
14Dark Fortress
Eidolon


An absolute behemoth of a modern melodic black metal album. 4
15Ved Buens Ende
Written In Waters


Amazingly slow, nearly doom-like avant garde metal with a lot of black metal influence. 4
16Aeternus
...And So The Night Became


Quality Norwegian blackened death metal. 4
17Hieronymus Bosch
Artificial Emotions


Why this isn't payed more attention to by the progressive death metal whorebag of a website that is Sputnik is beyond me. The ridiculous technicality and musicianship shown by these guys is nothing short of incredible. 4
18Morgion
Cloaked By Ages, Crowned In Earth


A very sexy piece of death/doom metal with some quality melodies and a good deal of headbangablilty. 4
19Delain
Lucidity


This is what Nightwish wished they released instead of the let down that was DPP. Poet and Balls will especially enjoy this. 4
20Gwynbleidd
Amaranthine


A progressive mix of folk, black, and death metal that seems to draw a lot of comparisons to Agalloch and Opeth. A very good ep. 3.5
