2018: Under The Radar

yesterday I started doing a 2018 ranked list, writing blurbs and shit. I lost the fucking list after 30 records. because I don't want to repeat myself I created a list for underappreciated albums, who are good or in some way noteworthy. cause I'm a friend of every lazy person I added links and cause I'm lazy too it isn't ranked or well structured/ thought out. Mainly black metal, death metal and doom. I don't think anyone would/should trust my taste in electro etc. and noise records are harder to track down (limited tape runs and no one including me loads them up) The last records on this list are upcoming releases wh hadn't had a new article dedicated to them.

here they changed their sound since their first into a more blackenend death direction. holds up pretty well in a strong year for death metal.

6Abigor
Höllenzwang - Chronicles Of Perdition


bm
unlike other bands, who started out in the 90's, Abigor's sound evolved resulting in a rather diverse discography. Simply said: Höllenzwang contains in its 36 min. more ideas than 2 records of most black metal bands.

10Gnaw Their Tongues
Genocidal Majesty


black ambient
It's been awhile since I listenend to something by Maurice de Jong. He simply shat out to many records/projects and it often felt to me like he was trying far too hard. Either I'm startting to get mellow or he has gotten better cause I dig this one.

11Lebanon Hanover
Let Them Be Alien


coldwave
It's messy, I will never be 100% happy with the guys voice (sounds at times almost like a parody) but I can't help but love them. Overall on of their weaker albums (and easy to hate I guess)

Schalm & Schabauw

dutch bm with a bit black 'n' roll. their earlier stuff was more Carpathian Forest/ Darkthrone's The Cult is Alive. More black less punk.

19Maggot Heart
Dusk to Dusk


rock
Their ep from last year was one of my go to records for the way home after dark. Dark rock music with a urban feel. It has the grit, dirt and bite most bands in the genre miss. Brought to u by Linnéa Olsson ( ex- The Oath, ex-Beastmilk/Grave Pleasures) with the help of Åhman, Bruniusson ( both ex-In Solitude and currently in Reveal, No Future(Å) and Death Alley, Procession (B) )
https://maggotheart.bandcamp.com/
20Messa
Feast for Water


doom
They have branched out stylistically even more/ added more non-metal influences. One of the most interesting current bands in the doom sector.

28Ascension
Under Ether


bm
Consolamentum was one of the standout bm records of 2010 and in the german bm scene. They haven't lived to this record yet imo. Nonetheless is Under Ether worth your time as they are certainly not just another run of the mill bm band. I have only listenend to it twice, so it has still a chance of being than just a good bm record.

the final Necros Christos . yeah, 113 min. are a bit too long but it might turn out to me my favourite NC album. They are def. leaving with "Domedon Doxomedon" on a high note.

neofolk
They announced to take a break after this album. unfortunately this is a good decision cause it feels like the well of inspiration has run dry (the candle burnt out etc) . not a bad album per se, not the weakest Sol Invictus album but it is fairly unremarkable.
