Best Digs Of The Day

Yeah I said it. This digs... they rule and come with the highest recommendations. You... yeah you! Definitely check them out. ALL OF YOU. I promise you won't regret it.
1The Electric Boa
Candy Coated Cyanide


My favorite local band, The Electric Boa is a five piece hard rock band, and their debut Candy Coated Cyanide features some of the most original and kick-ass hard rock to come out in the last decade. If The Rolling Stones, The Black Crowes and Buckcherry (without all the shit) and lead songwriter Higgsy and all his eccentricities had a foursome, this would be its glorious offspring. You can't download this (illegally) anywhere, but it's available via their website and Itunes. THis is super highly recommend.
2Aldebaran
Embracing The Lightless Depths


Dwellers In The Twilight was awesome, but I easily prefer this album - with more depth than ever, band's mixture of funeral doom and sludge is completely enchanting, something you could easily just lose yourself in. One of my favorite albums released this year.
3Avenger
Shadows of the Damned


Super underrated blackened death metal from the Czech Republic, Avenger and their debut album Shadows of the Damned is an easy classic and still remains powerfully relevant despite being released fifteen years ago.
4Darkest Hour
Deliver Us


Easily one of the best modern/melodic metalcore records to come out, EVER. The songwriting here is near flawless. You've all heard it before but as you all know it doesn't get old.
5Deceased
Luck of the Corpse


An old school death metal favorite of mine, Deceased first album is a motherfucking riff fest and King Fowley' rasped gutturals are just freaking awesome.
6 Encoffination
Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh


Death metal and death/doom in particular has always been morbid genres listening to Encoffination doubles that morbidity with their unwavering atmosphere and slower than slow pace.
7 Cornigr
Relics of Inner War


One of this years best black metal albums for sure, this album is steeped in super satanic atmosphere and captivating songwriting.
8Kathaaria
The Complex Void of Negativity


Technical black metal is more of a contradiction than Starbursts yet Kathaaria manage to not only play it, but do so very fucking well. Unpredictable and super creative, The Complex Void of Negativity is one for all kinds of extreme metal fans.
9Leper
End Progress


Black metal and ska is another thing SHOULD NOT work at all but Canada's Leper fucks that shit up, playing some of the most grim ska and crusty black metal around.
10Machine Head
The Blackening


I was in tenth grade when this came out, and five years later I still listen to it on a regular basis.
11 Michael Schenker
Thank You


An acoustic album by one of the best guitarists ever, there is something truly epic about Thank You despite the fact there is almost no electric guitars used at all. Seriously a beautiful and haunting album.
12Nameless Coyote
Devoured By the Swirling Night


The production of resident Sputnik user Foxblood, Nameless Coyote is black metal with shoegaze influences that doesn't actually suck.
13Nerlich
Defabricated Process


Finnish death metal is generally awesome and this is no exception.
14Defaced Creation
Serenity in Chaos


Old school brutal death metal, this album has not just riffs BUT FUCKING RIFFS MAN. CAUTION: album make cause neck pains due to uncontrollable, furious headbanging.
15Woe
Quietly, Undramatically


Two years later and I still listen the fuck outta this. Feels good man.
