lordworm00's 2017 Best Albums

Only 1th position is in order; Album of the year: Grails - Chalice Hymnal
Chalice Hymnal


'...The perennial influences of mid-20th century Western film scores, obscure library music, and psychedelic krautrock are indelibly imprinted, but Chalice Hymnal exudes an eerie patience in unfurling the many layers of its subtle details. ' (from their bandcamp)
2Bell Witch
Mirror Reaper


'...While retaining the monolithic heaviness of their previous releases, “Mirror Reaper” sees the band explore the more meditative, melancholy, and introspective aspects to their sound through the introduction of long, lonely organ passages and the return of honorary BELL WITCH member, vocalist Erik Moggridge (Aerial Ruin), offering a prominent presence.' (from their bandcamp)
3Elder (USA-MA)
Reflections of a Floating World


'...adventurous and unpredictable songs are punctuated by hypnotic jams, all colored by the tendency toward melody and dynamism that has become the band's hallmark.' (from their bandcamp)
4Chelsea Wolfe
Hiss Spun


'...Chelsea Wolfe dives headfirst into sludge metal and creates a unique space where sweetness can be heavy and contact is always uncomfortable.' (from pitchfork site)
Il nuovo mare


'...he band’s brand of atmospheric doom skilfully weaves post-metal, darkwave, industrial and blackened influences into its rich tapestry, resulting in songs that are obscure, esoteric and quite unlike a lot of music that’s out there.' (from wonderbox metal)


'...Leprous have driven themselves right into modern prog rock, which one might say was their destination which could be seen as far back as Coal' (from new noise site)
The Assassination of Julius Caesar


'Ulver moves seamlessly through time and space, and manages, in their own strange ways, to create a coherent tableau with a deeply personal backdrop.' (from their bandcamp)
8How to Disappear Completely
Mer de Revs I


'A study in deliberately soothing textures designed to give the listener space to find stillness and collapse into rest - late night lullabies.' (from their bandcamp)
9Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers


'this, this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy – we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat.' (from their bandcamp)
10Ninos Du Brasil
Vida Eterna


'The dense texture of synthetic bases, masterfully and cleverly coupled with the explosive-percussive irresistible charge of Ninos Du Brasil, has allowed the writing of this record, consisting of eight tracks that like sharp blades make way into a nocturnal jungle.' (from their bandcamp)
New Model


'The stark, monolithic factory on the cover of Perturbator’s new EP states quite clearly what to expect within: No neon, no sexy ladies, no cyberpunk trappings; just cold, impersonal machinery...' (from vehlinggo site)


'Kauan have always created moments of quiet introspection, even amidst the thundering riffs and caustic screams that largely defined the contours of the band’s earliest output.' (from their bandcamp)
Relentless Mutation


'... a big part of Archspire‘s sound, and it’s now more prominent than ever, with the bass frequently slipping in and out of step with the guitars as Dean Lamb’s melodies choose increasingly unconventional paths' (from angrymetalguy site)
14Forest Swords


'...“Compassion", an album that's as weighty as it is vulnerable, sculpting the most striking parts of his previous work into something that feels urgent and necessary, and cementing Barnes as one of the UK's most significant electronic artists and composers.' (from his bandcamp)
15Planning for Burial
Below the House


'The second full-length from UK electronic artist Forest Swords focuses more acutely on the music’s organic elements. It retains the uncanny qualities he’s known for, but with dashes of hope.' (from pitchfork)


'the atonal riffing so suffocated under distortion that picking out melodic structure is a fool’s errand; the incessant blastbeats that seem to shift out of themselves like a Fraser spiral; the bass rubbing against a rubbery film of noise above it.' (from angrymetalguy)


'...It is a result of heavy meditation in a desert landscape from the perspective of a vessel mountain which harbors a nest for the mind's eye to be imprisoned.' (from his bandcamp)
18Kelly Lee Owens
Kelly Lee Owens


'...Kelly Lee Owens’ debut album arrives as a wonderful surprise. An album that bridges the gaps between cavernous techno, spectral pop, and krautrock’s mechanical pulse...' (from her bandcamp)
19Giulio Aldinucci
Borders and Ruins


'...s a reflection on the instability of borders - borders as an extreme attempt to discriminate and rationalize that turns into a source of chaos and cultural ruins on both sides - and their impact on the relationship between people and territory.' (from his bandcamp)
20White Ward
Futility Report


'..."Futility Report" stems from a thoroughly modern vision, an innovative interpretation of Extreme Music which breaks down established codes whilst simultaneously deep-rooted in the obscure history of Black Metal.' (from their bandcamp)
21Those Who Walk Away
The Infected Mass


'...The Infected Mass is a powerful work of contemporary sacral music, executed with elegiac beauty and restraint.' (from his bandcamp)
Contemporary Past


'...Inspired by earlier releases of labels like Echochord, Echospace Detroit or Chain Reaction, this album nicely blends all styles together into one meditative and hypnotic musical experience. ' (from his bandcamp)
Trance of Death


'...Venenum’s full-length début Trance of Death stand in contrast with the carnage that will follow, they are also perfect archetypes of the eclecticism and compositional strength of the release as a whole. “Entrance” is anything but a vanilla intro to a metal record and Venenum is anything but a run-of-the-mill death metal band.' (from angrymetalguy site)
Strange Peace


'The Toronto-based trio Metz have incorporated harmony into their heavy sound on their third full-length. They shift away from all-out abrasion, adding color to their eruptions.' (from pitchfork)


'...Kainskult keeps all the basic building blocks of Perfection & Permanence: the tribal drumming, the atavistic propulsion, the clattering metal percussion, and the abysmal growls. But somehow it reaches a new level of intensity, both sonically and lyrically.' (from his bandcamp)
26The Ruins Of Beverast


'Exuviae: shedding the skin. The leftover exoskeleton. Alexander von Meilenwald of The Ruins of Beverast has stripped the project bare, exposed it to new musical vistas, and transformed it into a frenetic shamanistic beast.' (from angrymetalguy site)
27King Krule


'The producer born Archy Marshall crafted The OOZ to be alien and timeless. It is the richest and most immersive album the London singer-songwriter has made yet, under any name.' (from pitchfork)
Post Self


'The new LP from pioneering industrial band Godflesh is the duo’s best effort in over 20 years—a sinister amalgam of Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green’s collective work to date.' (from his bandcamp)
29Lawrence English
Cruel Optimism


'Cruel Optimism is a record that considers power (present and absent). It meditates on how power consumes, augments and ultimately shapes two subsequent human conditions: obsession and fragility. This pyramid is an affective ecology of the (ever)present moment.' (from his bandcamp)
30Francis M. Gri
Fall and Flares


'“Fall and flares” is an hymn to autumn, recorded last year and inspired by colours, feelings and emotions of that season.
Each song title is part of the poetry that encloses the concept of the release.
The album has been released only in digital format for helping to save environmental issues.' (from his bandcamp)
31Wolves In The Throne Room
Thrice Woven


'Now, a portal into the dreamworld of Wolves in the Throne Room opens again with THRICE WOVEN. It is a glorious return to the blazing and furious Black Metal that they alone can create!' (from their bandcamp)
32Snow Palms
Origin and Echo


'Two years in the making, 'Origin and Echo' builds on the foundations of its predecessor, 'Intervals' with a heavy quotient of metallophones, glockenspiels and marimbas at its core, but largely eschews the latter’s chamber arrangements in favour of soaring synth-scapes and a palette of spectral ambient and electronic textures.' (from his bandcamp)
33Pessimist (UK)


'With his self-titled debut album - across ten ice-cold and avowedly futuristic tracks - Pessimist not only seals his status as one of the most innovative and consummate producers currently drawing breath, he delivers a defining work which to us represents the culmination of nearly a decade of collective research and development in underground drum'n'bass.' (from his bandcamp)
34Do Make Say Think
Stubborn Persistent Illusions


'Stubborn Persistent Illusions is the group’s first album in eight years – and a brilliant addition to one of the most consistently inventive and critically praised discographies in the ‘post-rock’ canon. The band has been acclaimed as “the supernova in Constellation’s stellar network…arguably the finest back catalogue of any currently operating instrumental rock band” (Drowned In Sound), creating “some of the most honest, unpretentious, group-oriented rock of their time” (Popmatters)' (from his bandcamp)
Time Well


'Fuzzy and depressive. Expressive and expansive. An amalgam of doomy stoner rock, psychedelic shoegaze and moody, pop-influenced, sonic abrasion, Time Well is 10 songs and 60+ minutes of crunchy, guitar-driven atmosphere and downbeat rhythms layered atop deceptively sweet and tranquil melodies.' (from their bandcamp)


'There’s a powerful sense of foreboding that comes down heavy on you as Weightless starts up with the fractured industrial clang of Every Single Fish in The Pond. It’s a clamouring, drone-soaked paean to longing and misguided affection that feels like the antithesis of the title of JASSS’ debut album, but in the same pulse the production rings out with startling clarity' (from crack site)
37Tyler, the Creator
Flower Boy


'On Tyler’s sincere and most accomplished album, he gets to the essence of what he's been chiseling at: the angst of a missed connection, the pain of unrequited love, and navigating youthful ennui.' (from pitchfork)
38Blanck Mass
World Eater


'...World Eater, the new album by Benjamin John Power’s Blanck Mass project, is a reaction to this. There is an underlying violence and anger throughout the record, even though some of these tracks are the closest Power has ever come to writing, in his words, “actual love songs.”' (from his bandcamp)


'A main characteristic of Voigt’s oeuvre, the coalescence of seemingly contradictory stylistic aspects such as harmonious and atonal, concrete and abstract, light and heavy, near and far is also a decisive feature of NARKOPOP.' (from his bandcamp)
40Sarah Davachi
All My Circles Run


'All My Circles Run is a confident step forward from an exciting artist whose compositional and aesthetic tendencies steer her steadfastly towards both the subjunctive and the sublime.' (from her bandcamp)
41Janek Schaefer
Glitter in my tears


' Like the very best ambient music, ‘Glitter in my tears’ is an acoustic reflector of sorts, rebounding off the places and spaces within which it is experienced. This process means the record is never static, but in a constant state of discovery and rediscovery.' (from his bandcamp)
