A Forest of Stars Beware the Sword You Cannot See
Nowadays it's difficult to release an album this long and yet so engaging. Their style is a big win: avantgarde black metal with a british steampunk vibe. Something you don't hear from your "average" avantgarde BM band, even if I guess they are big Arcturus fans. The bonus cd songs are of the same quality of the regular album, if not better. Plastic Patriarch Lynch Squad is amazing!

Had to raise by 0.5. This album is fucking brilliant. Can't stop listening to it. Wrath of the universe is just incredible.

Children Hard Times Hangin at the End of the World
An unmistakably old style thrash metal album, but with a vintage twist. For some reason they sound odd, like they are coming from a parallel universe where thrash metal was already a thing in 1978. With catchy melodies and fabulous guitar work, this album is a truly hidden diamond.
Code Mut
Mut is a bold change of direction in more melodic territories for Code. If you don't mind trying something far from their usual formula, you will be rewarded with a convincing, gripping, black and desperate album. Perhaps my 2015 album of the year.
Converge Bloodmoon: I
Crimson Glory Crimson Glory
D-A-D No Fuel Left For The Pilgrims
This was among my first hard rock/metal albums and I still enjoy it today. They took a lot from ac/dc, but despite that they were able to sound personal. It's very easy to spot them in an ocean of copycat bands. On this album in particular they were nodding to a certain western movie vibe, which was really fitting with the overall atmosphere. Super fun album.

KG is like a display of all the music styles the band has produced over the years, plus
something new (Intrasport), which is perhaps a hint of the things to come. The microtonal
stuff is giving once again a touch of freshness, even though they could have been more
adventurous and integrate it more deeply. However, the result is extremely catchy and fun,
despite not being the easiest of the records, so kudos to the boys for another awesome

Another excellent work from this finnish band. Style is somewhat always the same, and perhaps this may be their drawback in the long run, but the result on this one is brilliant, at least on par (if not slightly better) with their previous albums.

To me Mut was a bold move in a direction which really suited the band well, but alas wasn't too appreciated. Flyblown prince is a move back to their avantgarde/prog/black metal formula found on Augur nox, and it's indeed a very good effort: immediate, nocturnal and sharp.

Not as brilliant as their last two LPs, but still a heck of an album. It takes the path started with Gold and Silver, strips down a bit on the jam concept and delivers a more focused outcome.

Not even sure this is an actual LP, as far as I can remember it is a collection of demos. Some highs and lows, definitely not the best effort from this fantastic band.
Mother's Cake Love The Filth
Quality is not as high as on the debut album, and after suppressing the funky influence they've lost a lot imho. Still enjoyable, though.

This one doesn't sound inspired as the previous efforts, although there are some nice
atmospheric bits here and there. The singer is in a continuous downward spiral, he's getting
worse album after album, to the point that now he sounds even irritating.
