Myrkur's January

The best eight albums I've heard this month.
8Alcest
Shelter


Genre: Shoegaze/ Post Rock; Country: France; Alcest is not Metal anymore, face it. Is this as good as their earlier albums though? No, but I would have to be deaf not to enjoy it, its still as beautiful as Shoegazey music can get; Rating: 3.5
7Descend
Wither


Genre: Progressive Death Metal; Country: Sweden; I did not know this band before, but Im glad I gave this a spin. Its not Opeth for sure but Im confident these guys wont stay in the dark much longer, there is enough quality here to ensure great things in the future; Rating: 3.5
6Thee Silver Mount Zion
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything


Genre: Post Rock; Country: Canada; This album is getting some praise on Sputnik and it is not hard to see why. Thee Silver Mount Zion have undeniable musical talent and this is pure enjoyable art. However, it drags a bit sometimes and some song structure choices were not the best, so thats why its not a 4; Rating: 3.5
5Inferi
The Path Of Apotheosis


Genre: Technical/ Symphonic Death Metal; Country: United States; Well, this is modern Tech Death with some Symphonic elements. If you have already heard bands like Hour Of Penance and Fallujah, this is not much different, but it is definitely more solid; Rating: 3.5
4Dripback
Failed Futures


Genre: Hardcore; Country: United Kingdom; Id say this is the best Hardcore Album Ive heard in a while. Cool vocals, tasty bass, angry drumming and loud riffage make this an automatic must-hear record for any fan of the genre out there who doesnt know this band yet; Rating: 3.5
3Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Piano Nights


Genre: Dark Ambient/ Jazz; Country: Germany; Bohren & Der Club of Gore just wont leave their comfort zone, so we are left with another haunting piece containing the same old formula with some minor changes only. However, it doesnt feel like you have heard it all before, they still keep it fresh and you will hardly hear the same song structure twice; Rating: 4.0
2Sleepy Sun
Maui Tears


Genre: Psychedelic Rock; Country: United States; I dont know if this is a popular opinion as this doesnt have any reviews yet, but Sleepy Sun are definitely at the top of their game here and this is overall more enjoyable than any of their past albums. The atmosphere is very unique, polished and distorted at the same time, vocals and guitar work were improved and the album length is just perfect for a great dose of Stoner Rock; Rating: 4.0
1Hail Spirit Noir
Oi Magoi


Genre: Progressive Rock/ Black Metal; Country: Greece; Inspired songwriting, bubbling riffs, great drumming, excellent synth textures, just fuck these guys. Seriously, this is probably the best blend of these completely different two genres you will ever hear. Blood Guru and The Mermaid are so good that this absolutely had to be the album of the month; Rating: 4.0
