Second to none with quality releases this month. Snowy jams for bad days ahead of you, men and everyone else. As usual 2017 stuff I jammed this month.
4.0 [techno] old school techno for new school kids.
Eroded Corridors of Unbeing
4.0 [death/doom metal] oh yes. Truly a great offering.
4.0 [dankness] shit. is. too. dank.
|4||And So I Watch You From Afar|
The Endless Shimmering
4.0 [math rock] where did this come from?
4.0 [noise rock, sludge, punk] why aren't we liking this?
Mechanics of Dominion
4.0 [post rock] I never thought I'd see a year where Esmerine released a better album than GY!BE. t/t is godly.
4.0 [drone, noise rock, jazz and so on] this is real neat if you give it the time. But also goofy in a serious way.
We, so tired of all the darkness in our lives
4.0-3.5 [ambient and post rock] low key having some of the greatest track released this year. And is overblown and overlong in a strangely charming manner.
4.0-3.5 [hardcore, sludge, mathcore, grindcore] rep the swedish noiseless Full of Hell.
Harmony of Difference
4.0-3.5 [jazz] feels like a mellow cousin to The Epic. Where it doesn't really pick up the heights shown in The Epic until the last track.
4.0-3.5 [post metal] Let's agree on post metal being better when it still had sludge influences. This is much lika a Cult of Luna light and it goes hard.
4.0-3.5 [scandifastthrashcore] They're back with another legendary record. Still the Kings.
|13||Corrupt Moral Altar|
3.5-4.0 [crust, hardcore, grind] this is banging all the way through. A real good rec from Aaron.
3.5-4.0 [dark ambient techno, industrial] dank
3.5-4.0 [noise rock/sludge] seems like a popular genre as of lately. But these brutts do it with passion and power.
3.5-4.0 [dubstep] Who would've known Tipper would do great dubstep-ish?
|17||NHK yx Koyxen|
3.5-4.0 [idm, techno] bleepy and bloopy idm that resemble techno more than autechre
The Great Distraction
3.5 [math rock, house] electronic math rock with a house feel. Works really well.
|19||Ninos Du Brasil|
3.5 [dark techno] a dark techno journey with ambient leanings.
We Have Been So Terribly Betrayed
3.5 [post punk] top tier post punk.
|21||The Mountain Goats|
Marsh Witch Visions
3.5 [indie folk] pulls my heartstrings
|22||Cosmic Analog Ensemble|
Les Sourdes Oreilles
3.5 [beats, electronic, funky vibes] "Very David Holmes/David Axelrod/Enter the Dragon. Groovy cinematic psychedelica with a kitchy orientalist vibe."
|23||Carbon Based Lifeforms|
3.5 [acid ambient] gotta love that genre tag. Superlong but superenjoyable this one.
Kom, vi startar en kult
3.5 [ambient, post rock] I don't know how to feel about this. The celestial ambience is well done but I can't shake the feeling this could've been so much more if the what feels like jam sessions were shortened in favor for some crescendo-core a la the closing track.
3.5 [crust, sludge] slowly played crust in a sludgy manner. It's good.
|26||Made of Teeth|
Made of Teeth
3.5 [stoner rock] this is pure stoner rock fun.
|27||Melanie De Biasio|
3.5 [dark jazz] a not so uplifting journey through jazz soundscapes.
The Centre Cannot Hold
3.5 [glitchy post-industrial?] doesn't really pack as much punch as AURORA but still a great jam.
Before the Applause
3.5 [kraut, post punk, techno] a charismatic mix of quite a few cool genres that works really well. Dewi you'll like this.
En Annan Tid
3.5 [alt rock] alternative to your regular rock music with swedish lyrics. You'll probably dig this more if you get the lyrics cos they're a big part of this
3.5 [experimental, tape manipulations, dream pop maybe] "Not so much an album of songs but an album of music. Ignore the track titles, close your eyes, and enjoy the journey."
3.5 [ambient] celestial ambient with attention to detail.
|33||The Black Dahlia Murder|
3.5-3.0 [melodic death metal] Who would've thought losing a boring guitarist would make your band riff again?
3.5-3.0 [progressive metal] a prog rock band who can write songs. This deserves a spin or two.
|35||Fatima Al Qadiri|
3.5-3.0 [electronic] oriental vibes unsurprisingly
3.0-3.5 [doom metal] navigates through different territories with ease. But not gripping me as much as I hoped.
Neo Wax Bloom
3.0-3.5 [breakbeat, idm] well done and probably deserving of a higher score.
3.0-3.5 [IDM, techno] Lee tries his hand at some Autechre inspired IDM while retaining the techno. It works somewhat well on some tracks and not as well on others.
3.0 [grindcore] a mix of the grindcore past, present and future. C0uld be m0re br00tal th0.
3.0 [new age electronic] hopping seamlessly between vaporwave, house, spacey synths, dubstep, noisy parts and so on. But it's a bit overlong and doesn't keep me interested throughout.
3.0 [deathrock, post punk, gothic] is not my preferred genre but it has some nice jams here and there.
3.0 [ambient] is pretty ambient. Nothing more, nothing less.
3.0 [mixed bag of electronics] feels way to scattered for my liking.
Everywhere at the End of Time- Stage 3
3.0 [post rock, ambient] the enjoyable, but not more, saga continues
3.0 [indie folk] pretty down to earth and mellow with some real standouts in the typical Destroyer manner.
|47||I Hate Sex|
World of Grief
3.0 [screamo] vocals are annoying and/or amazing. Songwriting is decent genrewise.
3.0 [jazz, folk] Zimpel continues on his path with great drone + jazz while the folk parts aren't as gripping to me at least.
3.0 [post metal] obscure sphinx light. Decent n all but nothing that gets you too excited.
|50||To Destroy A City|
3.0 [post rock] another album to add to the huge pile of "pretty but ultimately rather forgetful post rock albums". At least it's not offensively boring.
3.0 [piano jams] maybe not the most interesting but pretty and atmospheric slow piano jams.
3.0 [post punk] this is 80's post punk right here. Tight but in Italian so I don't get a freaking word.
|53||Apathy and O.C|
3.0 [hip hop] cool collab with some bangin tracks. Check it out.
3.0 [noise] skullfuckinlgy weird noise.
3.0 [sludge metal] "sludge is an understatement"
3.0 [ambient] synth jams and field recordings from this extremely profilic artist.
|58||Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith|
3.0 [electronic dark pop] sometimes it sounds like Fever Ray and sometimes liek ambient and sometimes leik fun times.
3.0 [post punky modern hardcore chaos] i dont ever think i will be a big fan of this band unfortunately
3.0 [post metal] not the best in the genre by a long shot. But decent enough.
3.0-2.5 [noise] yes well uhm it does make a lot of noises.
3.0-2.5 [deathcore, progressive metal] prog parts are boring, clean vocals are out of place. When it riffs it riffs tho.
2.5 [death metal] average underground dm
As You Please
2.5 [shoehorned into pop punk] Brand New anyone?
|65||The Left Outsides|
There is a Place
2.5 [dreampop] not by a longshot worthy any time but still not even remotely close to awful.
2.5 [screamo] I'm not understanding a word he's saying + it's very much like a worse version of good screamo bands
|68||Sound of Ceres|
2.5 [dream pop] not bad but rather unimpressive.
2.5 [experimental ambient breakbeat rnb] just as band as the genre tag would suggest.
2.5 [dubstep, drum n bass] not very good nor anything special.
The Sin and the Sentence
2.5 [radio metal] this is still radio metal but probably as good as the genre gets?
|72||August Burns Red|
2.5 [metalcore] rejoice another very ABR sounding ABR record
|73||Dr. Living Dead!|
2.0 [thrash] band has lost everything that made them fun to begin with.
|74||Veil of Maya|
1.5-2.0 [sumerian core] remember when this band didn't suck all the asses?
