03.01.10 Top 5 This Week (2/22/10-3/1/10)

Top 5 This Week (2/22/10-3/1/10)

Top five for this week!
1Enfold Darkness
Our Cursed Rapture


Damn dude. This was a total dark horse for me from 2009. Not thinking much of the band, I waited until Christmas to get the album, and was subsequently blown the hell away. Absolutely adore the death/black metal vocals, the down right nasty guitar/bass playing (bassist, not using a pick. Mad props), and the blinding drums. Definitely worth a checkout if you're down with death metal, black metal, or just GOOD metal in general.
2Katatonia
Night Is The New Day


Another album I didn't bother to pick up right away, and another big shock. The record is just plain dark, but in a "Mikael Akerfeldt just had a conversation with Meshuggah," kind of way. Atomospheric? Check. Awesome melodies? Check. Creativity? Check. Total badassery? Absolutely. Another record that's definitely worth a check out.
3Revocation
Existence Is Futile


Why the hell did I miss all these records from 2009? Brutal. Brutal is easily the best word to describe this album, and I mean it in every sense. The vocals, the otherworldy guitar playing (and I mean it), the monstrous drums... everything. If you want a total sonic asskicking, look no further.
4Frost*
Milliontown


Finally! Something from a while back (2006). Beautiful record, and also something that isn't heavy as hell, unlike the last three. This has been one of my favorite albums since 2008 when I found out who Frost* were, and it's only grown since then. Jem Godfrey is a beautiful songwriter who can go from wintery piano lines to straight up rock and roll, to even a bit of harsh progressive. If you haven't heard of Frost*, this would be the place to start.
5Into Eternity
The Scattering Of Ashes


Who? Stu Block? You haven't heard of him? Well, then I advise you close out this window, get in the car, and go buy "The Scattering Of Ashes" now. Between the shred and riffage from Tim Roth, and the ten0thousand-octave-spanning Stu Block, this album is a MUST HAVE for any metal fan. Period.
