March 2014 Digs

So the year's already a quarter gone and there's a lot of musix I've been renjoying but here's 15 albums I've been listening to the past month, no rspecific order. I will probably make a ranked first quarter list soon to outline rmy favs as well.
1Animals as Leaders
The Joy of Motion


You'd have to be living under a rock to not be familiar with this by now. Very entertaining but lacking the emotional connectivity department. I can see this growing on me though so I've continued to spin it.
2Jeremiah Cymerman
Pale Horse


Really pleasant, ambient-ish free improvisation. There's tribal drumz and an array of instruments and it's all very engrossing.
3Taku Sugimoto
Quartet / Octet


Big onkyo ensemble, I still wish the sound quality was a little bit better but regardless this is good reading/writing/drawing music.
4Nausea
Condemned to The System


Grindcore with a strong dm vibe so I can't not dig, pretty straightforward, enjoyable stuff.
5The Mire
Glass Cathedrals


Sludge Methul. Initially this bored me to tears but it ended up growing on me. Nice, filled out sound engineering helps quite a bit.
6Reverend Desaad
Elemental Raga II: Fire Starter


This might be my favourite potsycore of the year I'm not sure there's quite a lot of good ones. As you've probably guessed it's an eclectic mish-mash of anything and everything, fav track would probably be "StataMater.MotherWhoStops(or)Stabilizes".
7Kangding Ray
Solens Arc


Super chilled, slightly glitchy downtempo, really really good to zone out to after 10+ hour days.
8Howls of Ebb
Vigils of the 3rd Eye


Shout out to my favourite wizard (Wizard) for rec'ing this to me. Atonal, quirky blackened dm in the vein of Flourishing and Baring Teeth etc. highly recommended.
9Ageless Oblivion
Penthos


Just some solid tech death with trace amounts of dissonance for that slightly manic touch. There's a REALLY shitty transcode floating around on the net so make sure you get a good rip or this before you listen to it in full.
10Trvth
Purging


Probably the best Captaincore release yet, still has a few issues with the production but Cap says he's figured out how to fix them so I'm looking forward to more.
11Symptom
Caverns of Katabasis


Top 5 metal OTY so far, death/doom in the vein of disembowelment and Inverloch, really really good stuff. Highly recommended.
12Hannes Grossmann
The Radial Covenant


Instrumental progressive death. A lot of Obscura (the band, I mean) comparisons because this guy is Obscura's drummer afterall, but it's pretty easily distinguishable.
13Larvae (US)
Grave Descent


Solid death/doom but nothing revolutionary, I encourage you to check it anyways.
14Miasmal
Cursed Redeemer


Old school DM you'd be forgiven for thinking it came straight out of 1992, got a bit of a Dismember vibe going on. A lot of really infectious, high-octane riffage, no reason you shouldn't check it out if you like a bit of OSDM.
15Tensnake
Glow


Some house music that I actually enjoy, nothing more really needs to be said.
