Snifftober -17

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.
1Emmanuel
Rave Culture


4.0 [techno] old school techno for new school kids.
2Spectral Voice
Eroded Corridors of Unbeing


4.0 [death/doom metal] oh yes. Truly a great offering.
3Fever Ray
Plunge


4.0 [dankness] shit. is. too. dank.
4And So I Watch You From Afar
The Endless Shimmering


4.0 [math rock] where did this come from?
5Couch Slut
Contempt


4.0 [noise rock, sludge, punk] why aren't we liking this?
6Esmerine
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.
7BNNT
Multiverse


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.
8Leyland Kirby
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.
9God Mother
Vilseledd


4.0-3.5 [hardcore, sludge, mathcore, grindcore] rep the swedish noiseless Full of Hell.
10Kamasi Washington
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.
11Antarktis
Illdaante


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.
12Massgrav
Stockholm Rockers


4.0-3.5 [scandifastthrashcore] They're back with another legendary record. Still the Kings.
13Corrupt Moral Altar
Eunoia


3.5-4.0 [crust, hardcore, grind] this is banging all the way through. A real good rec from Aaron.
14Elisabeth Dixon
LP1


3.5-4.0 [dark ambient techno, industrial] dank
15Ghold
Stoic


3.5-4.0 [noise rock/sludge] seems like a popular genre as of lately. But these brutts do it with passion and power.
16Tipper
Lattice


3.5-4.0 [dubstep] Who would've known Tipper would do great dubstep-ish?
17NHK yx Koyxen
Exit Entrance


3.5-4.0 [idm, techno] bleepy and bloopy idm that resemble techno more than autechre
18Vessels
The Great Distraction


3.5 [math rock, house] electronic math rock with a house feel. Works really well.
19Ninos Du Brasil
Vida Eterna


3.5 [dark techno] a dark techno journey with ambient leanings.
20Partisan
We Have Been So Terribly Betrayed


3.5 [post punk] top tier post punk.
21The Mountain Goats
Marsh Witch Visions


3.5 [indie folk] pulls my heartstrings
22Cosmic 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."
23Carbon Based Lifeforms
Derelicts


3.5 [acid ambient] gotta love that genre tag. Superlong but superenjoyable this one.
24Snohamn
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.
25Unkind
Polku


3.5 [crust, sludge] slowly played crust in a sludgy manner. It's good.
26Made of Teeth
Made of Teeth


3.5 [stoner rock] this is pure stoner rock fun.
27Melanie De Biasio
Lilies


3.5 [dark jazz] a not so uplifting journey through jazz soundscapes.
28Ben Frost
The Centre Cannot Hold


3.5 [glitchy post-industrial?] doesn't really pack as much punch as AURORA but still a great jam.
29Re-tros
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.
30Riddarna
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
31L'Rain
L'Rain


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."
32Kj
Spells


3.5 [ambient] celestial ambient with attention to detail.
33The Black Dahlia Murder
Nightbringers


3.5-3.0 [melodic death metal] Who would've thought losing a boring guitarist would make your band riff again?
34Leprous
Malina


3.5-3.0 [progressive metal] a prog rock band who can write songs. This deserves a spin or two.
35Fatima Al Qadiri
Shaneera


3.5-3.0 [electronic] oriental vibes unsurprisingly
36Bell Witch
Mirror Reaper


3.0-3.5 [doom metal] navigates through different territories with ease. But not gripping me as much as I hoped.
37Iglooghost
Neo Wax Bloom


3.0-3.5 [breakbeat, idm] well done and probably deserving of a higher score.
38Lee Gamble
Mnestic Pressure


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.
39Complete Failure
Crossburner


3.0 [grindcore] a mix of the grindcore past, present and future. C0uld be m0re br00tal th0.
40Angel 1
Terra Nova


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.
41Grave Pleasures
Motherblood


3.0 [deathrock, post punk, gothic] is not my preferred genre but it has some nice jams here and there.
42Symbol
Scalable


3.0 [ambient] is pretty ambient. Nothing more, nothing less.
44Four Tet
New Energy


3.0 [mixed bag of electronics] feels way to scattered for my liking.
45The Caretaker
Everywhere at the End of Time- Stage 3


3.0 [post rock, ambient] the enjoyable, but not more, saga continues
46Destroyer
Ken


3.0 [indie folk] pretty down to earth and mellow with some real standouts in the typical Destroyer manner.
47I Hate Sex
World of Grief


3.0 [screamo] vocals are annoying and/or amazing. Songwriting is decent genrewise.
48Zimpel/Ziolek
Zimpel/Ziolek


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.
49Gloson
Grimen


3.0 [post metal] obscure sphinx light. Decent n all but nothing that gets you too excited.
50To Destroy A City
Go Mirage


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.
51Wovette
Steeple


3.0 [piano jams] maybe not the most interesting but pretty and atmospheric slow piano jams.
52Havah
Contravveleno


3.0 [post punk] this is 80's post punk right here. Tight but in Italian so I don't get a freaking word.
53Apathy and O.C
Perestroika


3.0 [hip hop] cool collab with some bangin tracks. Check it out.
54Construction
Collapse


3.0 [noise] skullfuckinlgy weird noise.
55Primitive Man
Caustic


3.0 [sludge metal] "sludge is an understatement"
56X.Y.R.
Tourist


3.0 [ambient] synth jams and field recordings from this extremely profilic artist.
58Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
The Kid


3.0 [electronic dark pop] sometimes it sounds like Fever Ray and sometimes liek ambient and sometimes leik fun times.
59Idylls
The Barn


3.0 [post punky modern hardcore chaos] i dont ever think i will be a big fan of this band unfortunately
60Impure Wilhelmina
Radiation


3.0 [post metal] not the best in the genre by a long shot. But decent enough.
61Alessandro Cortini/Merzbow
Alessandro Cortini/Merzbow


3.0-2.5 [noise] yes well uhm it does make a lot of noises.
62Kardashev
The Almanac


3.0-2.5 [deathcore, progressive metal] prog parts are boring, clean vocals are out of place. When it riffs it riffs tho.
63Acephalix
Decreation


2.5 [death metal] average underground dm
64Citizen
As You Please


2.5 [shoehorned into pop punk] Brand New anyone?
65The Left Outsides
There is a Place


2.5 [dreampop] not by a longshot worthy any time but still not even remotely close to awful.
66Chavire
Interstices


2.5 [screamo] I'm not understanding a word he's saying + it's very much like a worse version of good screamo bands
68Sound of Ceres
The Twin


2.5 [dream pop] not bad but rather unimpressive.
69Klein
Tommy


2.5 [experimental ambient breakbeat rnb] just as band as the genre tag would suggest.
70Chee
Fear Monger


2.5 [dubstep, drum n bass] not very good nor anything special.
71Trivium
The Sin and the Sentence


2.5 [radio metal] this is still radio metal but probably as good as the genre gets?
72August Burns Red
Phantom Anthem


2.5 [metalcore] rejoice another very ABR sounding ABR record
73Dr. Living Dead!
Cosmic Conqueror


2.0 [thrash] band has lost everything that made them fun to begin with.
74Veil of Maya
False Idol


1.5-2.0 [sumerian core] remember when this band didn't suck all the asses?
