What I've been listening to lately aka I am bored and wanted to make a list
Fun, gut-ripping death metal with some very full, bombastic production and nice melodies interweaved into the mix. 4.2/5.
The Archaic Abattoir
That but to a slightly smaller degree. 3.8/5.
To the Nameless Dead
Clean vocal black metal that makes we want to burn down all the Saxon's. 4.6/5.
A Journey's End
Harsh vocal black metal that makes me want to burn down all the Saxon's. 4.5/5.
I don't think this needs much explaining. 4.4/5
Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious
This neither although I have to say this one was definitely a grower for me. Couldn't really aprreciate Carcass's much heavier sort-of Grind roots initially but if anything there ability to transition and release incredibly important albums in both melodeath and grind makes me respect them more. 4.1/5.
Beautiful, riffing doom with vocals that kinnndddd of remind me of Steve Von Till. 4.5/5.

The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
Probably doesn't need explaining either but motherfucker this post rock is gorgeous. The pure essence of spine-tingling beauty. 4.6/5.
Above the Weeping World
My love for this record is consuming my life please help 5/5.
My love for this record is consuming my life please help (2) 4.7/5.
Austin Lunn makes angry black metal instead of pretty black metal because politics and the government are annoying evil entities. Oh but there's still good ole American folk so there's that. 4.4/5.
This album is a perfect album to space out to and really clear the mind of toxic thoughts. It's so soothing and uplifting, might've listened to this around 50 times or so. 5/5.
On the Impossible Past
The Menzingers writes songs about fucking up. 4.6//5.
The Menzingers writes songs about fucking up except now they're older and fucking up more 4.2/5.
Best listened to when playing Breath of the Wild. 4.7/5.
Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame
Best listened to when playing Breath of the Wild (2) 4/5.
The Moon & Antarctica
I don't have much to say about this because I just listened to this but it was sometimes weird, sometimes beautiful, sometimes fun and catchy, sometimes all 3. All in all I loved it. 4.4/5.
Elements of the Infinite
Fun, immense tech death that puts composition before technicality (but don't worry-they're stll technical, impressively so). 4.2/5.
New World Shadows
Was my favorite melodeath album until Insomnum came along and fucked everything else. Still, this is a gorgeous slab of atmospheric melodeath with some bomb-ass keyboard on the s/t that makes me nut every time.
