19 for 2019

some cool stuff from this year. nothing more, nothing less. too much metal as usual.
1Ultra Silvam
The Spearwound Salvation


The most "fun" bm album of this year imo.
2Funereal Presence
Achatius


The best bm album.Labyrinthine and refreshingly archaic
3Sadisme
Festering in Telepathic Communion


raw and violent
4Sinmara
Hvísl Stjarnanna


icelandic bm is still cool
5Akasha
Canticles of the Sepulchral Deity


ear piercing, chaotic, melodic, I love it.

Other bm: Doombringer, Skrawl, Blue Hummingbird on the Left, Heinous, Devil Master
6Mega Colossus
V


nerdy lyrics, playful guitar playing. it's just so much fun. NAVIIIIIIGAAAAAAATOOOOOOOOOOOOOR
Neg: Only an EP
7Traveler (CAN)
Traveler


good trad. heavy metal. nothing original but top notch execution.
8Sanhedrin (USA-NY)
The Poisoner


well rounded Hard Rock/ Heavy metal. (a rather mature album for the genre)
9Twisted Tower Dire
Wars in the Unknown


US-Power metal. happy to see that they are still around. cheesy (of course) but fun.
10Magic Circle
Departed Souls


trad. doom with a lot of of old (70s) rock in it. Brendan Radigan has the perfect voice for the genre.
Saw him last year with Pagan Altar, was totally blown away.
11Chainbreaker
Lethal Desire


raw speed/thrash metal. every song is well under 4 minutes. the 80's never ended.
12Ataraxie
Résignés


(funeral)death/doom. one of the best bands in the genre. L'être et la Nausée was a return to form for them and this is just as good.
13Vircolac
Masque


Didn't listen to much dm this year. Vircolac has the lead so far.
Other good shit: Pissgrave, Prostitute Disfugurement, Disgruntled Anthropophagi, Rendered Helpless, Venom Prison.
14Chaucerian Myth
Chaucerian Legends: The Epic of Beileag, Part III


Chaucerian Legends: The Epic of Beileag, Part I-III. Love his output. Often a rather challenging listening experience but his willingness to experiment is always welcome in this narrow genre.
Other cool Ds: Onion Knight, Tyrant Myst, Utred, Arthuros, Gargoylium
15Boy Harsher
Careful


not as good as I hoped, but still pretty cool.
16Jungstotter
Love Is


2nd best album of the year so far, I'd say. Need some more time with this to fully evaluate it, but so far it keeps growing and growing.
17Weyes Blood
Titanic Rising


currently In third place. the praise it gets is deserved (even if it is from lucid (; ...) . let's see if it stands the test of time.
18Low Life
Downer Edn


neat post-punk ( I hate this term by now). dig the vibe of it.
19GOLD
Why Aren't You Laughing?


so far my aoty. I adored the Optimist and I think this tops it.
Genre: Post-Whatever
