DDD's 2017 picks
1Protomartyr
Relatives In Descent


Post Punk
I'm still to figure if these fellas aknowledge what they did here. A Post Punk cohesive masterpiece with unexpected intensity and "build ups towards beauty" form start to finish.

Recd Tracks - Private Understanding; Windsor Hum; Night-Blooming Cereus
2The Ruins Of Beverast
Exuvia


Atmospheric Black Doom
Once I put this on it looks like there's nothing else. A tribal summoning.

Recd Tracks - Exuvia; Towards Malakia; Takitum Tootem! (Trance)
3Akercocke
Renaissance in Extremis


Prog BDM
Akercocke's masterfull evilness will riff your brains out. Great comeback.

Don't expect Exoplanet 2 but a personal, emotional and layered piece.

Post Metal Sludge
This album climaxes in one of 2017's best moments - An ode to Motherhood.

She's came to frighten us all. For real though, this is brilliant.

The Cosmic Cornucopia


Progressive BDM
Compilation
"Comprised of the highly lauded Dim And Slimeridden Kingdoms, Gastronomicon and Born Of Slime as a 3 disc digipack set. Journey through the decrepitude of Slugdge's first three years, translating the terrible portents of the netherslugs who permeate the fabric of our very reality, and spare yourself total metaphysical annihilation at the slimy feelers of our new gastropod overlords. Wrap your dry, desiccated cadavers in slime imbued fineries, and attempt to achieve transcendental levels of repulsiveness, while simultaneously howing your devotion to the lord of all reality. Praise Mollusca."
