5.0 classic
A Perfect Circle Thirteenth Step
A Perfect Circle Mer de Noms
Acid Bath When the Kite String Pops
This album, in a very unique way, throws in a lot of features from many of my fave bands...seminal as fuck...doomriffing like Sabbath, FilthySludge as Eyehategod, ragey as hardcore should, grunge, nihilistic etc...even more impressive its how classy they throw Death(like) DM on here with audible fret-less bass. Plus the fact you can see bands like SOAD or Slipknot (among many) followed so many of their tunes (and prob their identities) developed here, makes it really intriguing why they have not succeeded. The bassist's death, prob shitty label, and barely legal lyrics perhaps...lost gem, classic. Fave Track - Jezebel.
Akercocke Words That Go Unspoken...
Coolest solo on Seduced at 1.20'. Shelter from the Sand's beautiful outro. Eyes of the Dawn - prob on their top 3 bangers, with a rocking intro and another simple yet beautiful continuing outro. T/track starts weird with off setting melodics, but then you have this cool synth right before the cool 80's melodic guitars and riffs at the second part of the song - which is somewhat connected rto the next track, that almost reminds a Metallica song (when they were cool,if you ever thought they were X)). Next tracks, brings the riffs, and specially Penance that matches them with these crazy melodic interludes and solos, it became one fave of mine. It's really a mean one m/m/m/.
Akercocke Renaissance in Extremis
Alice in Chains Dirt

superb. artsy. dark. tripop BM. Amazing use of textures, this time adding an Industrial vibe to the piece and remaining organic af. Their most sophisticated sound to date, full of identity and uniqueness. In love with it. PUSH RELEAAAAAASE. PUSH RELEAAAAAASE. PUSH RELEAAAAAASE!

...album is amaaaazing...there's some tunes and melodies here you don't see in the genre...they're almost rockish and emotional....as weird as beautiful.

Bell Witch Longing
I decided to 5 this until there's another full on funeral doom album capable of dethroning this bad boy right here! Feel free to rec! Make sure it doesn't put me to sleep and it digs has deep in the grave the way every single track does here. This band's melodic vocals are incredibly original for this genre. Tip of Top Bell Witch album for me.

Darkthrone A Blaze in the Northern Sky
Their most dynamic album from the golden darkthrone era. BM outfit full pre-influences from OSDM and Doom and creepy creature vocals coming out of nowhere. Though simple, its the tits of evilness! m/rRecd tracks - Kathaarian Life Code and A Blaze in the Northern Skyr

Electric Wizard Dopethrone
Out of this world smokin music! These dudes seem to pull it of with not much technicality, but also so reffortlessly and with a thick and heavy doom, making it look really organic and genuine. Love rthis. Fave tracks: Funeralopolis, Barbarian and I, The Witchfinder.

Every Time I Die From Parts Unknown

Every Time I Die Radical
Eyehategod Dopesick
To dopesick add the word grossfilth and this is it. What a good ride. For me this was somewhere in the middle of Electric Wizard's stoner and doom nihilistic Thou (in terms of sound, once they're previous to both) with some punkhardcore in the mix, but its been called "the pure sludge"...all I know is this riffs so fuckin hard...its dopesick filthygross eeewww Recd Tracks - Lack of Almost Everything; Broken Down but not locked up.
Faith No More Angel Dust
Fausto Por Este Rio Acima
Years and years listening to this at home without realizing how carefully this was made. Not only
the poetry, but the attention to instrumentation and Portuguese true folk research is also
something to acknowledge. This is also mixed and written with a great sense of modernism and
avant-garde music. Conceptually. "Por Este Rio Acima" tells the story of the Portuguese explorer,
Fernão Mendes Pinto's travelings, during Sea Discoveries era, told in the book Peregrinação. A
Portuguese masterpiece.

I put Hooded Menace to listen to pure, tight metal and flawless...these guys clean my head from all the other metal I listen. The riffs, build ups, song writing and solos on this one hit perfect everywhere. I suck at parties if I start showing or talkin about HoodedM so you guys are all I have lol r
Hooded Menace Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed
Incubus (USA-CA) S.C.I.E.N.C.E.
Infected Mushroom The Gathering
Inter Arma Paradise Gallows
Paradise Gallows album has this Neurosis, early Mastodon vibe, plus a Doors followed by a Pink Floyd ode. Not to mention how heavy and filthy 'An Archer in the Emptiness' and 'Transfiguration' are. 'Violent Constellations' have a vicious solo at the end...its really my cup of tea. Doomy, Heavy, Thick, Filthy, Psychedelic - a fucking shipwreck. They perfected their album formula to this point.
Jamiroquai Travelling Without Moving
Jorge Palma

King Crimson Red
My kind of jam right here. Dark, dense and modern... beautiful. King band indeed.
Korn Korn
Krallice Demonic Wealth
Somehow this hits me as the kind of record I'd see a band like Ulver doing, if they hadn't quit BM, at this point (don't fight me). Sure, I'm not talking about the DM parts, or this maybe more proggy nature, but this sense of mixing trve BM with the avant-garde feel. Its different from any other Krallice (being GBF the closest). They recorded it during confinement and achieves an incredibly mysterious atmosphere, featuring amazing drums recorded through a phone (!), but also impressive takes on techy guitars and listenable, often brilliant, bass. The massive highlight though goes for the way the synths follow the all piece giving another layer of atmosphere, darkness and mystery. Its disturbing, smooth and heavy and I'm completely obsessed with it. I sense they'll never record the drums through a phone ever again (unfortunately).

Pulling Teeth Funerary
Apocalyptic piece of HXC-Thrash crossover, going further exploring metalcore and continuing the doom they found in the previous album. This "goodbye album" is full of features and its clearly divided in two parts - the first clearly thrash-HC-metalcore and the second more doomy and introspective. The apocalyptic and psych vibes are all around the album as well. I have to mention the dude's vocal originality and filthiness too. Its brilliant, its a bummer they ended and more people should check Pulling Teeth! Hey old maaaaaaaaaaahhhhn....Are you better off naaaaaaaaaaaoooooow?

Well friends...not getting how this don't have more rates...even if you're familiarized with the

Thou Magus
considering bumping this...The whole thing is massive in cohesiveness but it always keeps a slight variety enough to keep you fully engaged.

Aborted Engineering the Dead
for some reason I can't five this band but they're definitely one of my faves deathgrind bands. This is coming out as my 3rd fave from them and def my fave early aborted. Recd tracks - T/track and Skullfuck Crescendo
Aborted RetroGore
The groove is immense with this one. I tried
really hard not to "put like" on every track.
Aborted TerrorVision
Thought I was going to a "normal grind band" but this is so far from it in an incredible way. To rgive you an idea of the sound you got the Cannibal Corpse's grind, but also go from Archspire's rtechdeath, to Pig Destroyer's smashing and engagingly memorable riffs, to vocal delivery like rAnaal Nathrakh. They deliver the full package, from the cover (you really feel the cover lol) to rthe concept, to the actual music. Adding to this is the great concept and atmosphere (created on rslower parts and cool intros and interludes). The theme is slightly politic and speaks about the rmedia influence in Humanity in an horror movie setting. Fave tracks are like 5/6 lol but check rT/T, Vespertine Decay and The Final Absolution.
Acid Bath Paegan Terrorism Tactics
Acid Witch Evil Sound Screamers
As you go far in the record you just see these guys fucking rule. Also this "clowny" thing could be a bummer, but in this case helps them not to take themselves too serious, and explore more terrains (which a i dig a lot). Super Fun doom! Perfect junction of the band's name m/
Ad Nauseam Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum Est
Afterbirth The Time Traveler's Dilemma
Unique gritty sounding DM with postrock/hxc sensibilities...cool modern vibe while remaining faithfull to dm roots...this is my type of sound because its bold and challenges musical boundaries in the purest of forms.
Afterbirth Four Dimensional Flesh
What a brilliant fresh piece to unfold...imagine insert post gazey rock melodies in the most gritty kind of brutal deathmetal...awesome stuff...riffs are super dynamic in constant change (awesome to more awesome riffs though). I also personally dig how the drums sound here. Perfect mix. If you dig Artificial Brain you can't miss this. Not to mention, in this World's Corona threat, you have awesome song titles like - Spiritually Transmitted Disease or Minimum Self Distance...out of this subject, Beheading the Buddha is a hard song title, not has a hard as the track itself tho m/ x).
Agoraphobic Nosebleed Agorapocalypse
Akercocke The Goat of Mendes

Yeah...this one has def some of their best tunes. My Apterous Angel is so fuckin awesome! The rtribal aspects on the album here "a la Choronzon" are also a bliss. I have soft spot for Words, rbut starting to rather some tunes from this one and even Renaissance. Now you know this is pure rblasphemy. Band is sput underloved, but its a damn classic one.r

This dude's work is the main cornerstone on Brazilian modern music. So does, and mainly this
album, which is a very jazzy take (no wonder Sinatra got around it). His legacy is even bigger
than this though. Grande Tom.
Astrix He.art
Atvm Famine, Putrid and Fucking Endless
Atvm in my native language (Portuguese) would be literally translated to Tvna, which would be (I'm sure it isn't) the "perfect" name for the the fun they're all having along this whole thing. You can definitely tell their Death worship, yet always throwing multi-genre (tech prog dm rock psy thrash hm) adventurous writing. The guitar riffs and leads are super cool and unexpectedly melodic, but the massive highlights go in fact for the bass lines and licks and for this monstrously tight and insane drummer. Prodwise you can listen to everything and its melodic and beyond playful. Hands down. Sick cover art, sick cool band and debut.
Azusa Heavy Yoke
This is what I call the real tDEP attitude. Genre bending stuff. Here's how you start to enjoy
this album: You put it on, then again and again and again...let it breathe...and then again m/m/m/
rproduction is slick, execution is tight, vocals delicious and the mood is perfect throughout the
album. Ethernel Echo is for a fact a killer track. "This is a 5 gents and ladies, buy the fucking

It's as sketchy as organic and sensitive. A lesson on how to nurture and raise happiness.
Black Curse Endless Wound
"...that features members of Blood Incantation, Spectral Voice, Khemmis, and Primitive Man." this
statement alone is reason enough for me to 4 it....turns out this album is one 4.5 of a slapper
for a start. Now you tell me, what does the main riff from t/track does to you?
Black Peaks Statues
A lesson how to be multigenre and versatile without losing your soul. Hints of Mastodonlike prog riffs added to their posthardcore core mixing sounds from ATDI, PTW and ETID, even some mathy tDEP (but more accessible than all of these). Vocalist is simply amazing. All these sounds are blended flawlessly and with true own identity.
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Black Sabbath Black Sabbath

Although I love the previous one, I sure can tell it's really sludgy rough...this one has the perfect mix, balance and vibe. It's prog nature fits really nice on this fuzzy doom, in a very personal and unique way.

I think the cover is awesome, however it can be misleading (with the title of the album) when you jump expecting for a psychedelic exp. Haallucinahliaand and Cosma Procyiris though are indeed a cool tone change towards this idea. The album. Its not indeed an immense trip through psychedelia but a very gazey and beautiful BM album, with some true metal riffs to keep you engaged m/

Gorgeous cover...immersive listen...Its amazing how lately cover arts and music are so complementary for me, mainly in this genre...this is some artsy tech thrash...as if you just left the vault 101, at some point you regret that (to the point you question yourself "where am I?"), because its an harsh and intricate journey, yet its all worth it, cause that's what heroes and adventures are made of.

Excellent lost nu-metal release. Lots experimental, noise, glitches, pure rage, some constraint, great bass are the ingredients. Use of high screeches uncommon for the genre at the time. I made one of those pirate copies myself back in the days (printed cover and all) mix of nostalgia and realizing the quality is still there. This album is high quality to the genre, contesting with Slipknot, Korn, Mudvayne and others more successful. TKS xxm

Dvne Asheran
I would say it has some progressive and sludge metal too...amazing album! I would say this is a kind of early's crack the Skye Mastodon with sludgy Neurosis. Gotta keep an eye on these guys. Thank you users from sputnik for putting this in some of your 2017 lists.
Dvne Etemen Ænka
Big album and very well done. A bit long, considering it repeats the dynamic structures too much. Title track is legit stuff and all tracks are practically as good, throwing a lot of influenes in one homogenous sound. Asheran was killer tho and gave more the sense of adventour. Edit - @loveforeverchanges listen to CoL.
Elder (USA-MA) The Gold and Silver Sessions
Great turn for eclecticism. Band is showing true craft, going for a sort of 70's chilling vibe this time. If you're looking for classic stoner you won't get it.

only needed the first 4 tracks to think this one may be their best effort imo...the production r(which I hate to talk about lol) is way better than the sophomore, that looks like a small rrehearsal room don't quite know why. Also is seeming to me way darker and deeper even than their rlast one. Needless to say this little electronic appointments are gold for me. Strong Deftones rvibe on Hospital Fat Bags. Realy great release.

High on Fire Death Is This Communion
DiTC is what I'm talking about. The groove filled with those whipping riffs hit my weak spot. The
vocal delivery on that one is amazing too. The drum and guitar song interludes are intense and
fitting to the whole song and just give the enough prog vibe I also enjoy on these guys.
yesyesyes...I've got a new favorite band.
High on Fire Electric Messiah
really good speed up pace stoner. Great songwriting, weather in the shorter fast tracks or in the
more progressive longer ones. Riffs everywhere and cool solos. I found also plenty of originality
on the drums sounding really organic. Loving this and I'm glad I gave this guys a second chance,
once I was not impressed by the previous release. You won't "Sleep" with this one m/m/m/ Faves:

Up tempo" more "accessible" Hooded Menace with hints of heavy metal. Tight af, as per usual, and the mix and tone hit just perfect. Best deathdoom tone in the biz. All their albums slay, what can I say.r
Horrendous Idol
Though everything is a bit low (to get all things you need to pump up the vol quite a bit) is rreally nice how this band can be from really abusive DM to really prog and melodic (even in some rawesome back-vocals) all at once. The fret-less bass (audible af!) is just everywhere and perfect, rvicious and addictive guitar riffs. Everything on this is really good but, aesthetically speaking, rthe vocals are really setting them apart! Whether melodic or that desperate raw mid-tone scream. rSuch a cool release this one. Faves: Soothsayer, Devotion (Blood for Ink), Obulus.
Immolation Close to a World Below
Immolation Majesty and Decay
Immortal Sons of Northern Darkness
Immortal At the Heart of Winter
My favorite Immortal to date. This album is a damned riff fest.
Impaled Nazarene Taog Eht Fo Htao Eht [Demo]
15 minutes of blasphemy and freedom, if you don't have fun that means you just got raped by the Beast.
Imperial Triumphant Vile Luxury
Straight 4.5 for the most scary, intriguing and brilliant musical experiences I had this year. Deathspell "Omeguish" sound with lots brilliant jazz inputs. Fave Track: Chernobyl Blues. though this is to be listened in full.
Imperial Triumphant Alphaville
Brilliant effort, that ends up delivering a more futuristic feel to the World they create(brought much from the atmosphere and a more techDM approach, on a closer look) as opposed to the more actual NY scenery you catch on VL. Both in the same level of quality I'd say and this is still filled with panic, euphoric, jazzy and smokey yk...Alphaville is a big highlight here.
Infected Mushroom B.P. Empire
Inter Arma The Cavern
Inter Arma Sulphur English
Band is pretty much underrated here! Dudes go from absolute heavy rampage to the most beautiful
melodic tunes. My fave is clearly Paradise Gallows in terms of that doom-bm-postmetal balance. On
this one they kept their fromula but added somewhat a more osdm aehestetic to theeir sound...Band
fuckin rules m/m/m/

Hands down to this amazing drumming. Amazing band. Band's in an old school bouncy groovy HXC
vibe, yet full of plenty of new ideas. Fully satisfying release. The ATDIlike appointments are
delicious and gives it the album great dynamics.

Katatonia Viva Emptiness
So...by listening to the new The Ocean (that features Katatonia) I remembered some friend recorded this CD for me when it came out (because of Tool lol), and I listened to it a lot without actually sharing...now listening to it I'm acknowledging I remember practically every bit of it and with more notion that this is actually pretty good. Though is sometimes is too commercial it has a great personal value for me.
Kendrick Lamar To Pimp a Butterfly
Prob the most relevant and creative rapper from the decade. I see this album being a master piece to any hip-hop fan and not only. Impressive how seamlessly the mood swaps song to song. Super glad I decided to check this dude, even though I'm not an hip-hop fan. The jazz take is delicious.

Marilyn Manson Mechanical Animals
Marrasmieli Between Land And Sky
Okay...Imma cut it straight...I'm not a folk fan but this Finnish trio's debut is making me
reconsider. Sweet cheeseless and fast folk BM, super cool keyboards (of flutes, violins and
choirs) and several appointments off awesome DM thrash riffs hit my G spot every time. Even the
somewhat bad production adds something to this for me. I think the vocals here are just perfect.
First and well deserved 4.5 of the year. Recd track - Those Who are Long Gone.
Mastodon Remission
Mefitis Offscourings
For me this album is a prog black/dark metal near masterpiece. Take these late dm acts like Horrendous or prog Cryptic Shift, with a fair blackened melodic slice from bands such as Dissection, adding these 70's prog vibe with chanting choirs and some wicked solos, provided by one of the dudes from the cover - since the main band are only 2 of them. Cover is as quirky as bold eheh as they are. It's definitely one misunderstood gem going by. I'll make sure it doesn't fall into oblivion.

Misthyrming Algleymi
Perfect vibe, even to someone who's not much into folk BM such as me, and perfect runtime rpreventing from boredom. The vocals on front don't bother me much either (on the contraire they rrule)...not as much as these unknown characters used on each track and band's name.
Moloko Statues
Motorpsycho The All Is One
Impressive and carefully written and mastered album, gathering all of Motorpsycho's influences, from Beatles 60's pop, to 70's prog (Genesis, Floyd etc...), spacey shiny psy stoner and even those hints of indie rock. My first time with this band and a hell of a greetings card. Fave tracks are The Magpie and the N.O.X. set of tracks are an ode to the psystoner genre...beast set of tracks and a beast of an album.

Napalm Death Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism
What an awesome continuation from Apex Predator. Production is a tad cleaner, yet they delve deeper in experimentation with this one, loosing a bit of the straight fw grindcore, specially noticeable in the post/ industrial takes a la Godflesh mixed with samples and nasty riffs like Pig Destroyer (f.e.), gives it this sense of dark/ disturbing instead of goofy. Def my kind of grindcore.
Necrophobic Hrimthursum
Necrophobic Darkside
Necrot Mortal
Time to put some justice into this. This album is a major step fw from the debut, in terms of
writing, technicality and production. With these kind of unique time signatures they put
themselves among top acts like Tomb Mold, Ulthar, BI etc...as an all they nailed with the perfect
runtime (7 tracks) for this kind of DM, much like Tomb Mold. Riffs, leads and ID of their own
though, amazing drumming, and mainly catch how the solos fit super sweet. It's a really fun OSDM
listen and it may be one of the reasons why its being slightly overlooked here. Recd tracks: Dying
Life, Sinister Will, Mortal.

This Album is a damn flooring experience. Imminent five for sure.
Neurosis Through Silver in Blood

Numenorean Adore
Oh boy...this comes out to me many times as if Deftones and Gojira had a blackgaze child, but I'm sure everyone would find their own vibes from this, across many genres, from punk rock to osdm. This sense of nostalgia does not compromise how fresh and modern this still sounds. Full of melody, memorable tracks, hooks, catchiness and highlights (rare in the genre). In love with it. Recd tracks: Portrait of Pieces;Horizon; Regret; Coma.
Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory?

Obliteration Perpetual Decay
You're in this for a really grindy OSDM riff fest with shredding solos. You get the real Death and thrash vibes here. Practically no doom. Awesome and relentless debut. Production is really great and the vocals are mainly low growls but really punchy and interpretative. I put like on every track lol
Obliteration Nekropsalms
Wow this one is a massive jam m/ maybe simpler songwriting (doom first and OSDM/thrash then and then again) but my fave from Obliteration m/m/ all sweet deathdoom bangers. The drums are impressive, and the bass as some crazy cool effects. considering the 5 bump.

I love this, can't yet to divide this from Waste of Space Orchestra, or the (for me obvious) grim vibe from Magma's (70'0s psyprog band) influence, in an evil and insane, yet tribal and entrancing, BM outfit.
Os Mutantes A Divina Comédia ou Ando Meio Desligado
although a little goofy here in there, as you get into this dark satire album, you get these guys were a big step ahead of their time.
Pallbearer Foundations of Burden
Pallbearer Heartless
Papangu Holoceno
If you dig the murkiest of murky Magma textures, combined with prog&jazz free writing like KC, all complemented with some sick sludge riffing/mix and finished with the most stellar drumming...oh and almost forgot, Brazilian Tropicalia movement vibe sprinkled all around, then this may be what you're looking for in a long time.

Portishead kinda thing...its depressive indeed but several sweet tracks. Enjoying it so far.
Brilliant work of textures. I'm a huge fan of these guys.
Protest the Hero Kezia
Psychonaut Unfold the God Man
This album is very good though and its like a starting mash up, that match my tastes on too many parts for me to ignore, and it slowly builds into one own identity as the album goes on. The album is very immediate, but, in my experience, it holds to many listens. 70 minutes fly by. Fave tracks are Sannanda, Celestial Dictator....and beast 15 minutes closer. Basically what Dedex said in his soundoff but with 4.5 rate.
Pulling Teeth Paranoid Delusions/Paradise Illusions
they're thrash crossover band and they're awesome on their last 3 releases, adding more doom towards the end. Album is amazing. Just give it a chance.

Rivers of Nihil Where Owls Know My Name
Who says DeathMetal can't be relaxing? Classy and smooth release from Rivers of Nihil, going really "proggy sax&pink floydish" at times on this one. If you check their t/T videoclip you see them ironically dressed up as 70's psychedelic hipsters, which gave me a cool twist of "funny fellas".rRecd Tracks - The Silent Life; A Home
Rolo Tomassi Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It
this album is really good...gonna bump it again...some times the hype and little girl's vocal annoys me...but then I give the album space to breathe and I come back to it and feel like 4.5 to 5 it. This quality really sticks...how gentle and soft it starts, then it gets really darker and heavier...then the jazz and piano features just give them that uniqueness and identity. Adding to that is the way everything flows because everything is brilliantly connected.

Album is pretty brilliant. The variance shown for a psystoner album is impressive...the album flow is also remarkable. Spacey guitars, psy synths, 70's vibe choirs and tight little bad assdrumming. I get some awesome late Elder vibes on this. Recd track - Citadel on a Satellite.

Album is as sweet step ahead from their debut. Recd Tracks - Divided by Darkness; Hear Her.

Really well done and impressive BlackDeath a la Behemoth. Beautiful esoteric vibe and some war&summon anthems VS some kind of misery attached, throughout all album.

Best Tame Impala. You feel the connection between both Currents and Innerspeaker, perfectly balanced and in a very iconic way. Apocalypse Dream, Why Won't you talk to me, Feels Like We Only Go Backwards and Elephant are major highlights in a whole massive highlight.

The Mars Volta Amputechture
The Mars Volta Octahedron
The Mire Glass Cathedrals
A great hidden gem here TKS to Shuyin. Beautiful balance between melodic and screaming. Personally this touches some Poison The Well and Deftones buttons with a PostMetal vibe (CoL and The Ocean). These guys pull it off perfectly without becoming cheesy or too emo. Creative work, though towards the end the lack of complexity in guitar work, may not much being added. The drumming is by far the best performance here. A really stand out. False Idols, Triple Gemini and Dark Sun are my faves.
The National High Violet
The Ocean Precambrian
two parts. The first one with an odd but surprisingly good punkrock vibe. The second one with a
more postmetal feel. The way these songs progress is speechless. Everything is unexpectedly raw.
And damn those violins...
The Ocean Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic
This is a beautiful piece of art. This time the band went full postmetal on this one and nailed
it. All tracks with astounding progression and ambiance, beautiful melodic vocals and dynamic
tracks. Starts right with Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence as the first and more memorable
highlight, Devonian: NascentKatatonia feat Katatonia another and the closer track nailing hard.
The Ocean Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic
The Ominous Circle Appalling Ascension
Great Portuguese band (From members from Holocausto Canibal, Colosso, Dementia 13). Sometimes it
may look too simplistic, but amazing drumworks with vicious guitar solos and malicious growls are
really impressive. Poison Fumes is the shit m/...
Edit - This grew a lot on second listen. This is kind of special stuff in the Portuguese scene
imo. Besides Poison Fumes being the obvious "single"...those last 3 tracks are enthralling as hell
once you're already into the "trance" the album can provide. Dive in this. The vibe is amazingly
The Ruins Of Beverast Exuvia
The Ruins Of Beverast The Thule Grimoires
Approaching a more gothic industrial vibe on this one, not so focused on heaviness, or the maddening fast bm (see Rain Upon the Impure), but definitely showing how versatile this guy can be. The atmosphere as always is sick andrspot on. Digging more and more the melodic vocals (props for the amount of different type of vocals he can reach). Another big piece with room to grow on me. That closer is so lushy, woof.

So, it really still feels like Tomb Mold but yeah in a more shiny DM approach...nothing wrong so far m/ I like this band very much. It jazzgroooves boys. Tom Mold goes to space, keeping their ID and time signatures and that's brilliant. Also a certain southern rock feel is maintaineds and praised by me.

Tool Undertow
Tool 10,000 Days
Tribulation The Formulas of Death
1st step on transforming their sound, the mixing of psychedelic with a somewhat osdm and bm vibe
is just top notch. They've completely excelled this time and went right up my alley. One thing I'm
over enjoying in here (call me what you want lol) is the more proggy side dm/osdm, reminding bands
such as Morbus Chron f.e. This is Tribulation's prime effort for me atm. Recd Tracks - Suspiria;
Tribulation Down Below
This album has grown 3-4 for me. Recently I've become more sensitive to this sound and this one is pure filth&class. Edit - 4.5 - These dudes are infectious and rule live m/m/ conquered!
Trouble Psalm 9
beast embryonic Doom record. Highly impressed by this. I think I may dig this over the upcoming Candlemass'
Type O Negative Bloody Kisses
A girl cums, then first 2 tracks in and I thought "this is dogshit" then started to get all those different vibes and influences track to track...from Doom to punk to industrial and yeah gothic...really amusing.
Type O Negative Slow, Deep, and Hard
TypeOneg at their rawest but still a very conceptual album. Unexpected talented band for me. From Doom to thrash, to punkRock, to gothic, to industrial. As dark as hilarious. Recd Tracks - Xero Tolerence; Prelude to Agony.
Ulcerate The Destroyers of All
Ulcerate Stare Into Death and Be Still
Top notch release. Top notch classy production, balladesque version of Ulcerate m/m/ it rules after a few listens. Great and original blend of Post metal, Death Metal and BM.

Amazing dark atmosphere and post aspects. Love for the intro "Music For The Recently Bereaved" - roller-coaster of a track m/m/ the ride begins and with the Actress and Vicarious Lover only gets better and better. Megan's ending drum solo! Imaginary - the acoustic guitar meddled in such an heavy song is wrecking good. Antidote - simple, beautiful and powerful. The Fuck Trance - The Fuck trance. Hourglass - a very good old school classic metal track. The House Black Light- just take the ride m/m/. Last Train Victoria - Did you spread your legs for him the way you do for me?
Warforged Essence Of The Land
Warforged I: Voice
Highly impressive AvantGarde Progressive Blackened TechDeath, with acoustic, piano and psychedelic and/or jazzy appointments making all this thing really shine throughout...It never falls into blandness, great sense of atmosphere, can even show an emotional side. Beneath the Forest Floor hits me every time. Then you have crazy jazzy track Old Friend or the best metal minute of the year (without a doubt) on The Color Of My Memory's first and exact minute.

the "Tethered - Clock Cleaner - Catastrophic - The Weight" combo really gets me going here. Thick and Harsh bros. Sludgecore af sound!r
YOB Our Raw Heart
Zao The Crimson Corridor
Zapruder Zapruder
As you press play on this keep in mind that you're in for a treat. Its really great how playful
and fun it goes, but the mood starts to turn in the middle (blame the sax as well) in a more
serious introspective way. The sax is indeed delicious and these vocals are just so crazy
versatile&varied that I'm still digesting them. Stoner Lemmy (or Matt Pike lol) going hardcore is
indeed something else, but that's just one tip of the iceberg for this fella called Isaac Ruder.
Great vibes from tDEP, HoF and ETID and I bet many others. This was a treat. They knocked it out
of the park. 4.5 on it and I think it will stick.

4.0 excellent

A.A.L. (Against All Logic) 2012-2017
Abigail Williams Walk Beyond The Dark
The melodic vocals are very well pulled for this type of BM...whata surprising good release this is.
Aborted Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage...
Aborted The Archaic Abattoir
This time they inserted these "southern rock" riffs and vibe, injecting a lot of Pig Destroyer's
(at times like ETID too lol) riffing groove which makes this right up my alley. It may come off as
bit slower paced than usual for Aborted but they're clearly exploring the "punch" in here. You can
have a full fun time with this one. m/m/ Fave Tracks: Dead Wreckoning; The Gangrenous epitaph and
The Inertia.
Aborted Global Flatline
Another great release from the coolest deathgrind band. Do the job as always. A bit more formulaic and less surprising than Terrorvision or Retrogore. Fave tracks - Fecal Forgery; Of scabs and boils; Grime)
Aborted The Necrotic Manifesto
Aborted ManiaCult
Not as strong output as Terrorvision or Retrogore, essentially because of solos and leads aren't so mindbending as in those 2 imo. Still their new approach inserting BM on their brootal and technical DM brand goes on and keeps me going. They also insert some pretty cool Hardcore nods and hooks. Sven is absolutely diverse and savage - dynamic and theatrical af as always.
Acid Witch Stoned
Acoustic Ladyland Living With A Tiger
Super Cool. Wasn't expecting it to be instrumental. Sax is organic af, it practically takes the part of lead singer. Brilliant songwriting and "albumwriting". TKS Demon. Will sure get back to this.r
Acrimony Tumuli Shroomaroom
Ad Nauseam Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
I now enjoy both their albums differently, but in similar measure. The writing is a bit more dynamic on the debut, giving it more mounts and hills to explore, but they also resemble like other known outputs (spectacularly nonetheless, and what outputs they are!). In here they try to aim for one full sound/ construction...which is this thing...I dig this experiment for what it is as they explained (check their bandcamp description). This is a beast of an album, with a ton of jaw dropping moments, it though requires a very focused listen and when you're fully engaged is when it shines the most.
Aepoch Awakening Inception
I thought on 2nd track "if there's more tracks like Delirium of Negation it will be awesome"And it
does! And what great fucking debut! m/m/ my The bass is what make this awesome and special (very
good guitar solos as well). At the same time the "audible bass" makes the whole thing a little
less heavier than it should at times. Also not a big fan of this type of vocals - but that's just
me...this is good techdeath prog but with good songwriting preventing it from being just
"wanking"...I really hope to get back to it X)
Afterbirth 2014 Demo
Instrumental piece guessing the band's success in subsequent LP's. Cirque Sombre Noir has somerriffs from Eternal Return (from The Time Traveler's Dilemma). You also get the full instrumentalrpiece from Spiritually Transmitted Disease (Four Dimensional Flesh) and Maggots in Her Smile (TherTime Traveler's Dilemma). Amazing stuff all the way m/m/m/

Neither those endless crescendos well known for the genre, which I find sometimes to be kinda annoying...just me tho. This fits me the right way. Songs are beautiful...and there's cool riffing this time, in detriment for multi-details/instrumentation m/r
Aldebaran Dwellers In Twilight
filthy AF...really good vocals...american sludge...LMantis, Dragged Into Sun kinda filth...this fucks me up X)
Aldous Harding Aldous Harding
Alice in Chains Facelift
Alkaloid Liquid Anatomy
All Them Witches Lightning at the Door
The band tuned on versatility and dynamic songwriting, upgrading what they did on the debut (which is very solid as well). Digging this bluesy vibe. A very atmospheric piece.
All Them Witches Dying Surfer Meets His Maker
Great atmosphere to drive off. Love the production on this one...great bass tune.
Altar of Plagues Mammal
Drums and Atmosphere are simply amazing! I know its part of the drill but I feel this would benefit even more with a bit more power on the guitars.

Disclaimer: This soundoff won't comment the cover. This album slaps. Definitely more formulaic
than experimental but it connects you to a thrill electric wire end to end. FUN RIFFS!!! BAD ASS
Ancient Mastery Chapter One: Across The Mountains Of ...
had this on repeat until they took it out from my music app. Here's the bandcamp - https://ancientmastery.bandcamp.com/album/chapter-one-across-the-mountains-of-the-dr-mmarskol. The synths are cheesy af, but also give this sense of retro charm to the songs, that when they riff, they go pretty damn hard. Sweet debut release.
Anciients Heart of Oak
this is more of an easy 4 than the other...the altrock approach on this one (mainly vocally) set
them apart from other progdeathmetal bands. Really diggin this one. The Longest River, Raise the
Sun, Overthrone are the faves m/ its all pretty banging

gotta love when these guys mix western riffing with cold east postmetal. Recd tracks - III; V
Au-Dessus End of Chapter
Awesome and even overwhelming BM, with some tracks to remember. Great guitars and
variety of vocals, only wished they explore a bit more melodic vocals. Pretty different and,
though it goes hard as fuck is less chaotic or insane as Blut Aus Nord or DsO. A 4 experience
nontheless X). Recd tracks - IX; X; XI.
Audioslave Audioslave
Azusa Loop of Yesterdays
Harder, with better production, swirls even further, cracks the brain, split in two and it multiplies x4 plus 3, then count 30 minutes again. They succeeded. The avg is only because ppl don't bother X)
Balance Interruption Door 218
Great take of Eastern BM, with some Industrial aspects and a majestic jazzy sax in many tracks,
merged perfectly. These 3 aspects makes this sound very unique.
Baleia Quebra Azul
Brazilian music has so many good things, that I'm a bit torn between a 3.5 a 4. The listen is very enjoyable , although its indie nature it offers some welcome variety on vocals (fem and male) and compositions that overcomes a somewhat washed psych vibe. There's many "hipster" Brazilian bands embracing this psychedelic sound, based on the classics (Caetano Veloso, Jobim etc etc ect).
Barishi Old Smoke
I have to like all Masotodonian sound with a dear in the front cover. For lovers of early Mastodon
that don't mind going a little harder.
Baroness Blue Record
Be'lakor Vessels
Behemoth Demigod
Behemoth I Loved You at Your Darkest
Well this dudes new aesthetic, as long with the fuckin cool solos and overall instrumentation
manage to surpass some simplicity and predictability in their songwriting. Really cool release and
easy 4 makes me realize how special The Satanist is and considering the bump. The only step back
is that I miss the heavy guitar distortion on this one. Favorite tracks: Ecclesia Diabolica
Catholica; Bartzabel; Sabbath Mater; We Are the Next 1000 Years
Beherit Drawing Down the Moon
Beherit Engram
Beherit Bardo Exist
weird band. weird discog. weird album. I love weird.

Bloodbath Resurrection Through Carnage
Bloodbath The Arrow of Satan Is Drawn
Let me start this way. I'm gonna be a father next year and this cover gives the creeps! Though the risk of falling into blandness is constant, you can go from start to finish and always find awesome deathgroove, cool riffs and crazy flawless solos, all in one single noise doomy mix. The second listen was even better and more distinguishable. Fleishmann, Deader, Only the Dead Survive.
Bob Marley and The Wailers Natty Dread
Bobby Caldwell What You Won't Do for Love
Shit if this ain't smooth! All tracks are really solid, all singles. Recd tracks: My Flame; Can't Say Goodbie; What You Won't do for Love.
Bon Iver 22, A Million
Bong-Ra The Goat of Mendes
"The Goat of Mendes was a short lived project combining live guitars mixed with (industrial) dubstep. Before the wobbles arrived period, so to say. Live guitars mixed with Death Metal / Industrial (Carcass, Pitch Shifter, Godflesh) and Dubstep (Scorn, Broken Note, King Cannibal, etc). This particualr liveset was recorded at a PRSPCT event back in december 2008." Taken from bandcamp - https://bong-ra.bandcamp.com/album/the-goat-of-mendes
Brii Sem Propósito
If you had your share of psytrance and love your lofi bm, I've never listened anything blending the genres so perfectly. The psyrock sections were also delightful, great guitarwork.
Bruno Pernadas Those Who Throw Objects at the Crocodiles...
Back to the 70s psych&spacey love boat vibe...merging all jazzy inputs from latest work. Still not as tender as the debut but I think it got it right again.
Bruno Pernadas How Can We Be Joyful in a World Full of Knowledge?
Super sweet tunes. Super sweet and solid release! Already knew this but re-listened today and remains fresh. Everybody should listen Huzoor tune at least once.
Buried Alive The Death Of Your Perfect World
easy like for Hatebreed or Terror fans. Great fuckin release. The only critique is that's too similar to Hatebreed and everything is too samey...but hey its fuckin hardcore, go fuck yourself X)

Capitao Fausto Pesar o Sol
Car Bomb Meta
Cara Neir Perpetual Despair Is the Human Condition
More BM centered piece...tracks seem a bit longer. Really dig how nasty depressing these dudes sound
Cara Neir Phase Out
Highly mockable release if you don't get it as pure mockery. Really like these nerds and the concept they go for on each release. Also big take on experimental, adding to the called screamoBM takes, hip/tripop, punk, jazz and yeap those retro game 8bit samples.
Carbon Based Lifeforms Derelicts
Carcass Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious

Cattle Decapitation Monolith of Inhumanity

Code Orange Forever
Coltsblood Ascending Into Shimmering Darkness
Jeeeeezzzzzzzzzzz check this fuckin dudes. Two
type of growls here, low for doomier parts,
high screeches for filthier. OSDM and BM
sections mixing with slow Doom (and a
delightful occasional vicious goth organ
uuugghh) makes this right up my alley. Let's
keep a close eye on these fellas X) they sure
worth it. plus there's a girl on guitar called
Conan Existential Void Guardian
don't know the rest of their discog but this slays! I love the vocals on it, and despite is
doom/sludge they provide us some faster tracks and sections with brilliant faster drumming. The
guitarwork is typical sludge/doom with perfect distortion for the genre. No solos nor technical
guitarwork though. It can be a little short for the genre! Fave tracks: Prosper The Path; Volt
Thrower; Vexxagon.
Conan Osiris ADORO BOLOS
Once you start you don't quite know what to expect. You don't know if this dude is practical joke
or only a prank. Once you get to know the work you can see he is as genuine as hilarious. He
speaks his own language but also approaches the new urban Portuguese slang and
themes...cakes, kebabs, cellulite, beach etc...the music has clear Fado, gypsy and Arabic or
Indian influences X) fave track: CELULITE an TITANIC
Conjurer (UK) I
Converge Petitioning the Empty Sky
Converge When Forever Comes Crashing
Converge I Can Tell You About Pain
Converge Beautiful Ruin
Convulsing Grievous
DO and Ulcerate type of BDM really amazing and dynamic for the genre. Impressive sense of melody here and there (again for the genre). Fave tracks - Were; Strewn/Adrift
Cosmic Putrefaction The Horizons Towards Which Splendour Withers
Very cool cinematic syfy DM. To even think this is a one man project is beyond my reach.
Creeping Death Wretched Illusions
This one is easy for me. Very fun, sea of riffs and breaks. I think the reviewer explain very well what this is about. Not very impressed with drums but they do the job. Its not really crossover but you can tell the way they change and punch that these guys come from an HXC background.
Crippled Black Phoenix Ellengaest
Crosses Crosses
Cryptopsy None So Vile
Cult Leader A Patient Man
I admit that the contrast between the soft tracks and the heavier ones is a bit too much, but I think its only cause the heavy tracks are indeed heavy as fuck me twice. Still prefer their previous release still a really good effort from this pretty unique band. First 3 tracks (Heal ME is one hell of an opener) will smash you completely on heavy part. A Patient Man leads on the calmer tracks as my faves.
Cult of Luna Cult of Luna
Cult of Luna Vertikal
Very experimental, electronic driven CoL, still manages to create these beautiful melodies and build ups. Recd Track - I: The Weapon; In Awe of
Cursed II
Cursed I
Cytotoxin Nuklearth
Daft Punk Homework
Dark Angel Time Does Not Heal
Dark Fortress Spectres from the Old World
Really good metal hybrid. From the melodic BM starting point, this goes in several influences (prog, DM, thrash, techeath (intro). Beyond that, another really strong point is the variety of the vocals output, from the harsh BM ones to almost a post/sludge melodic ones. I loved the soft vocals on Spider in the Web. Also the vocals on the verse on Pali Aike or Isa f.e. gives me serious Mastodon vibes, but with its own character and freshness...In the Deepest Time is also a main jam, as with the massive T/track m/ Only setback for me are the 2 final tracks which seemed a bit unnecessary, albeit with a cool atmosphere. Very solid and focused piece for such a proggy band - 4.2.
Darkspace Dark Space III I
Darkthrone The Underground Resistance
Love the variation of the tracks here. Definitely the best one from the last 3. Ultimately an extremely rockish fun album. Nice surprise.
Darkthrone Eternal Hails
Darksabath vibe, supercool release. I even love that little linking atmo section. Also album art
is godtier.
De Staat Bubble Gum
Dead Combo Lisboa Mulata
Deadwood Picturing a Sense of Loss
without the BM features this would still be a great indie/rock album :D
Deafheaven New Bermuda
Deafheaven Infinite Granite
Gazers feel offended more ppl are enjoying this because of proper sick drumms and actual songwriting. 2nd parts of songs and its transitions are super cool. Those 2nd parts are more post alt rock than actual shoe. Its kinda what makes this cooler than your average shugaze bedtalk band.rI could only point out that all tracks follow the same scheme, but that happens in so many bands we all love
Death Scream Bloody Gore
Such a strong debut. Unfortunately is just a bit too long. If it was somewhat trimmed I feel it could be stronger than Leprosy.
Death Spiritual Healing
There's nothing on here better than Leprosy 2 final tracks, but there's a step fw to a more prog technicality. T/track is really awesome.
Death Individual Thought Patterns
Death. Void. Terror. To the Great Monolith II
I listened to this.......and I'm still alive
Deathspell Omega Si Monvmentvm Reqvires Circvmspice
For me only third prayer forward its a near 5...Carnal Malefactor is simply amazing and I can only imagine if those melodic leads were not this much buried.
Deathspell Omega Drought
Deathspell Omega The Synarchy of Molten Bones
Deathspell Omega The Furnaces of Palingenesia
Deftones B-Sides and Rarities

Demolition Hammer Epidemic of Violence
Probably the fastest and angriest, yet tightest, thrash I'll ever listen.
Demonauta Temaukel, the Spirit Before Time
Depeche Mode Violator
Desert Sessions Volumes 11 and 12
This album is awesome...even better than last one.rAlso >VillainsrGotta love Far East For the Treesr
Desire (POR) Infinity... A Timeless Journey
Although its a bit too Gothic for me (organ+lyric girl singing occasionally) is when the growls
and the riffs come that this can get really oldschool badass at times. Excellent Portuguese
release from 1995! Everything is really well done with great atmosphere and tons of instruments.
Sweet Doom for sure.
Recd tracks - A ride in a dream crow; Forever Dreaming... (Shadow Dance)
Devoid of Thought Outer World Graves
While they share the same view of Cosmic DM from bands like Blood Incantation, the variance shown makes each track a beast of its own! I found it amazingly awesome for that matter. From the weird sax(?please confirm?) coming from some deeper far cave on Perennial Dream, to the doomier Four Cereulean Ways, to the nervous Sidereal Necrosis they show their versatility and experimentation on Death Metal. All tracks are long and some go around the 10 minute mark and none overstays for me. Great listen.r
Disembodied Heretic
These dudes just pound the shit out in the best way they can here!
diSEMBOWELMENT Transcendence into the Peripheral
You really have to be in the mood for this. Yet seminal, its one disgusting piece of the rawest DeathDoom you ll get!
Disentomb Misery
Disentomb The Decaying Light
It goes brutal, hard and with one of the best productions and basslines of the year.
Diskord Dystopics
Its so awesome how gorgutslike experimental, tech death, with a kind of osdm texture goes and still can go doomy af to let us breed a little. Highly impressed with these guys.
Diskord Degenerations
Multiple listens worthy. What a treat of riff fest with the most as gorgeous as crazy bass licks. What the fuck, so many strong points but maybe Abnegations and Beyond the Grime are my faves.
Dodheimsgard Supervillain Outcast
ahaha wtf dudes? This album is very good m/. Perhaps not on levels of insanity/ experimentation/ avant-garde as the previous one but don't deserve all the hate. This one is a rocker and clearly more on BDM side than actually Industrial. Yes its long. Suck on it. X)
Dodheimsgard Satanic Art
Crazy little EP! Their journey towards their true own identity started to be drawn here. Although the sound is still very lo-fi (3rd track f.e.), you can tell how they try to variate on instrumentation and features on each of their tracks, instead of the DT 0.5. Really nasty tasty BM.
Doomriders Grand Blood
I m loving these guys...pretty heavy but the vocals with great sense of melody...everything else
kicks ass to! Comon guys...review this one...
Downfall of Gaia Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay
Downfall of Gaia Ethic of Radical Finitude
Dragged Into Sunlight WidowMaker
Not that I'm to say this is underrated...I get the complaints, but I happen to really dig this one. "I" is a very acoustic sludge piece Thou(like) at times. "II" pulls you back on the so known riff fest and progressions from bands like Cobalt f.e. III offers a doom vibe, banging and punishing towards the end. It really sets how versatile the band can reach in its own ID.
Dragged Into Sunlight Terminal Aggressor II
This song really drags (at first...its suposed to...) something really evil into the sunlight m/ If I'm not about "atmosphere for the atmosphere alone" in first part of the song, I'm all about how this shit ends m/. Not bad at all for the first 2020 release listen. 23:23 its where its at boyyyyz!
Dread Sovereign Alchemical Warfare
It's doomy but very hard rock one, with very interesting prog developments through tracks.
Dry Kill Logic The Darker Side Of Nonsense
Dvne Omega Severer
Dying Fetus Wrong One To Fuck With
Dyscarnate With All Their Might
Easy Star All Stars Dub Side of the Moon
Easy Star All Stars Radiodread
Elder (USA-MA) Dead Roots Stirring
Elder (USA-MA) Reflections of a Floating World
Elder (USA-MA) Omens
Bold but hard 4 cause I dig the band a lot. As said they always change their sound in each release. This time they leave you with somewhat of a disconcerting punk rock vibe, much of this caused by the "bad" vocals much more at front, where tuning is not a strength.
Electric Wizard Come My Fanatics...

Enforced Kill Grid
yeah well...fuck it, give us one of these relentless hardcore thrash 4s every 2 years. TKS! They come, they fuck and they go.

Expander Endless Computer
Expander Neuropunk Boostergang
If you never listened to this band you probably never heard this new genre called Neuropunk...ahah
its ok if you don't want to be cool. This thing is a big slapper of punkHXC with the most cool
post/sludge leanings, weather in the spacey guitars or the absolutely insane howling vocals. Give
it a go cause it rips ahrd. Neuropunk is my new fave genre, now you other bands start playing it
as well
Extol Synergy
Eyehategod Take as Needed for Pain
Eyehategod Eyehategod
EHG in a very playful jam mode. Cool intelligeble vocal hooks. Punk mood af. Still badass. I'm oficially a fan of this band's discog and this was a great comeback. Recd Tracks - Flags and Cities Bound; Agitation! Propaganda!

Foo Fighters The Colour and the Shape
Four Stroke Baron Planet Silver Screen
Though I'm not sure if he Cure Vocals actually works, still this sounded refreshing and cool, with some delightful tracks (Planet Silver Screen; A Matter Of Seconds; 7th of July).
Fractal Generator Macrocosmos
OK folks. I just have to stop this 3.5ing nonsense. This album riffs a pack of awesome techdeath (which is not my "go to" genre per se)! Further listens made me enjoy it even more, specially the back half which contain tracks like Chaosphere, Shadows of infinity and fuckin Primordial m/m/m/. Bookends are also legit bangers. There's tiny little synth sounds and nuances one should not disregard. Also need to mention the amazing cover art, setting a single dude approaching some other planet landscape, which sets the tone for this journey perfectly imo.

I praise the return of the Sludge and to some aspects of the old mix m/ (like those low growls answering to , no less guttural, high ones....UUUUUHHH?...WREEEEEE!...UUUUUHHH?...WREEEEEE!), there's still some death that was explored on Trumpeting...Recd Tracks - Burning Myrrh; Armory of Obsidian Glass; Angels Gather Here; Ygramul the Many
Full of Hell Auditory Trauma: Full of Hell Isolation Sessions
Tight af yeah
Full of Hell Garden of Burning Apparitions
These 2 last are quite similar to each other imo, but this one maybe more punk while the previous has more dm cuts. Reeking Tunnels hxc's it down, but its prob the main highlight here, throwing you back on their debut.
Fuming Mouth The Grand Descent
The album is a bit the same HM-2 tune all along, but damn the music sounds pissed m/...Unlike some opinions, with further listens, I got the album takes a slight turn on the second part, giving enough variation to hold it up. The latent HXC (even in the few melodic parts) is great.
Gaahls Wyrd GastiR - Ghosts Invited
Gaerea Unsettling Whispers
Gaerea crawl and claw their way through doom, death metal, sludge, and all manner of malevolent
metal-ings. Who would've thought my 1000 rate would be Portuguese BlackDeathDoom but this was
awesome for a debut, great production and the drums do stand out. Fave Track: Absent.
Gang of Youths Go Farther in Lightness
Gatecreeper Sonoran Depravation
This is way more DM Doom. Not so much the punk vibe shown on the sophomore but damn if it rips m/
Gatecreeper Deserted
OK Gatecreeper...here's my 4...just make it better on the next one!
Gatecreeper An Unexpected Reality
Gatecreeper going doom on last track was really something, keeping that vicious HM-2 mix of theirs. Straight out for lovers of Pallbearer or Bell Witch. Certainly doom knowledge acquired from their previous shared act Spirit Adrift.
Gaza No Absolutes in Human Suffering
great balance between hardcore, grind and sludge. Extreme heaviness and aggressiveness with some
pretty nice breathing moments. The vocalist is incredibly powerful. The only step-back is that
they seem to rely t o much on that sort of transitions. Hopefully I'll stick around to see this
growing on me - sure will revisit and reevaluate after listening the full discog - Fave tracks:
Not with all Hope in the world, The Crown, When They Beg and Winter in Blood.
Genesis Selling England by the Pound
One of those albums that conquer you as you go through it. Brilliant - yap Firth of Fifth bangs, The Cinema Show is a 70's prog master piece.
Genesis The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
this release really picks up the right mood for me somewhere around Carpet Crawlers. Epic and concept stuff all the way.
Genocide Pact Order Of Torment
This record convinced me song after song instead of getting me bored (as I expected). Creative rslow tempo death metal, with awesome use of palm mute. As you go into this record you see a lot of rcreativity here, as you'll notice in Pain Reprisal and Ascendancy Absolved. Structural Dissolution ris brutal and grindy. All the vocals are grindcore death metal based. Great job!
Get The Shot Infinite Punishment
this one is better than the previous one imo...should be better ranked...pretty rad crossover of trash and hardcore...cool high pitch vocals, complemented with kind of Metallica's melodic vocals, and sometimes supported with some grindy cool low pitch growls
Ghost (SWE) Infestissumam
Ghost (SWE) Prequelle
Glassjaw El Mark
God Mother Maktbehov
Sacrament and Nothing are two awesome tracks. Excellent work by this guys overall... leaning to a 4 here
God Mother Vilseledd
Godflesh Streetcleaner
Godflesh A World Lit Only by Fire
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
Gojira Terra Incognita
Gojira Fortitude
Gorguts The Erosion of Sanity
Gorillaz Plastic Beach
Gorod Aethra
Is amazing, and much like A Perfect Absolution, how the proggy&tech stuff on these dudes serves
and is really encrusted on the songwriting. Plus I got a weak spot for the esoteric feeling that
flows throughout some of the tracks. The vocals are great and varied and the midpitch vocals gives
a rare emotion to this genre which I really dig too. Faves: Bekthen's Curse; And The Moon turned
Black and A Light Unseen.
The minor stepback is that sometimes it gets a bit too spastic and the sound is often interrupted
in some of the tracks.
Gospel (USA) The Moon Is a Dead World
damn original stuff...like a progressive screamo...with a weirdly fitting organ, excellent
drumming and cool lo-fi mixing. The only flaw on this is the lack of highlights cause everything
is an highlight tbh. Hope it grows.
Green Day Dookie
Green Druid At the Maw of Ruin
Sort of Electric Wizzard and Sleep meets Cobalt and Thou. Huge sound bros.
Greg Puciato Child Soldier: Creator of God
Super cool and modern "90's prime revival" (let it pass). But we all know this is precisely what rMr. Pussyato is about: full on 90's early 00s', in which Patton and the NIN's are a constant (with little Sade/George Michael hints), and an amazing ability to be abrasive, experimental and poppy at the same time. Surprised with his solo quality...although I miss the instrumental's tDEP mathy chaos.
Guano Apes Proud Like A God
Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction
Hail the Sun Wake
Yeah album is pretty sweet...everyone is super talented
Hallas Excerpts From a Future Past
Tough album for me to get in, but with right mindset and inputs (doc on yt) I get these guys a pre
much the real deal here...great journey of an album! Very retro, but where I listened to early
Genesis/ Jethro I now see me passing through The Doors, Dire Straits, some folk, some of the
HardRock epicness I normally despise and in here I love, and yeah some modern music as well.
Vocalist has a lot of character and requires habit, he's a young dude with a voice of an older
man. Star Rider is an amazing track.
Hallas Conundrum
I started very skeptic at this album, yet the last 4 tracks won me over. They make some of the coolest prog as the album goes. Great retro/vintage take.
Hatebreed Perseverance
Hatebreed Rise of Brutality
Hatebreed Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire
Hatebreed The Concrete Confessional

Excelent EP. Can t wait to jam their new LP.

I don't think this is bland at all. Sure I get your production issues, less sludgier less
"Sleepier" vibe, but this has bad ass riffs as hell. I kinda enjoyed this more than Luminiferous
f.e. If this is officially their worst work is just fine by me X) whata band m/ Fave Tracks:
Bastard Samura; Ghost Neck; Fire Flood and Plague
HIM Razorblade Romance
His Hero Is Gone Monuments to Thieves
His Hero Is Gone Fifteen Counts of Arson
Hjelvik Welcome To Hel
Hooded Menace Never Cross the Dead
Horrendous Ecdysis
This album starts simply beautiful and awesome. The leading pinkfloydish melting solos are just so rcool! I'm getting more of the general vibe I got on Idol which I'm fuckin lovin, only with a more rsludgy or doomy tone and distortion on the guitar riffs.
Horrendous Anareta
This is without a doubt a very talented band.This one may even have a bit more craftsmanship and
speed than the new release, but not as successful in transitioning brutality and ugliness into
beauty tho. The Nihilist, Acolytes, The Sum of all failures and the closer are my faves on this
one. Both flow really nice but this is just a bit more tiring imo Idol felt to me as a bit less
thrashy and a bit more modern and unique.
Hulder Godslastering: Hymns of a Forlorn Peasantry
As if this demo wasn t being solid enough, this brave gal pulls off this title track (Hymns of a Forlorn Peasantry), starting with her melodic vocals, so gorgeously! The following final track (From Whence an Ancient Evil Once Reigned) is also really good. The way she uses the synths gives it a singular vibe imo. Surprisingly really good record.
Hum Inlet
This album has a great atmosphere and immaculate production...postgrunge comeback/ reinterpreted thing. Very well done. My fave tracks are in pairs Step into You+The Summoning and Folding+Shapeshifter.
IDLES Joy as an Act of Resistance
Post punk band (though they don t see as such). Approach the new wave issues such as feminism, male vulnerability, lgbt etc. in a really funny way. Fave tracks: love song, june, samaritans and television.r
Igorrr Savage Sinusoid
Now what the fuck was this? If there's any "breakcore" album I could 4 it would be this stuff lol
Immolation Atonement
Immortal Pure Holocaust
Immortal Bird Empress​/​Abscess
Immortal Bird Akrasia
Immortal Bird Thrive On Neglect
Perfect blend of BDM, Grindcore e HXC. Excellent songwriting imo. A little less musically driven
than the previous one, which had a rock approach here and there. Girl's vocals are awesome btw.
Impaled Nazarene Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz
Absolutely blasphemous ritualistic stuff...vocals and atmosphere are insane. There's something really straight fw in their thrashy BM, yet very compelling and with the awesome drumming in a constant change. The Beast is singing and chicken samples are something else hihihi. In the end, this is different from anything I've ever heard. Also find amusing as hell to see users giving it a 1 and 1.5 (I totally get it, mind). Here's my 4.
Imperial Savagery Lashing the Feral Swine
Incubus (USA-CA) Make Yourself
Incubus (USA-CA) Fungus Amongus
Indian Guiltless
Infected Mushroom Converting Vegetarians
Infernal Coil Within a World Forgotten
Excellent mix of deathgrind (deathspell omeguish) with an esoteric metal vibe...this goes really hard with some awesome breathing moments as well.rRecd Tracks - 49 Suns; Bodies Set in Ashen Death
Integrity Those Who Fear Tomorrow
Integrity Howling, For the Nightmare Shall Consume
This album is an awesome crossover. Hardcore, Trash and some nice dark aspects, sludgy and doomy
Good production. The vocals and the songwriting are excellent. Clearly deserves to be reviewed,
and clearly deserves a better rating! Experienced musicians doing something special here! This is
top 20 2017 metal records candidate.
Inter Arma Sundown
Definitely different from their later settled ID. Less doomy, less of that pink floyd psych here (except for that last track's ending). More BM and even some southern metal riffing vibe, to an almost hardcore at times.
Inter Arma Sky Burial
Damn man! The PinkFloyd track here (Long Road Home) getting into full BM is fuckin awesome...its a kind of signature...though they are always very creative, they kept their formula albumwise - DoomSludge - BM - PinkFloyd - and then rougher again m/ How they have those Neurosis like vocals, but then those filthy screeches come in...reminding BM and more filthysludge bands (Thou; Lord Mantis f.e.). I love these guys and how they mix all these and keep the narrative damn consistent...who would've thought!?....I wonder if this reached Roger Waters somehow lolol
Interpol Turn on the Bright Lights
Interpol Our Love to Admire
Interpol Interpol
Isgherurd Morth Hellrduk
Very good and surprising debut. Every post element on this is only provided by guitar soundscapes. Overall sound and vocals are evil af, but keeping a certain gazey vibe, that feels very welcome. Also the bass has also really standout points and listenable all along in the mix. It's overall not too complex but it delivers the goods. Fave track is prob Lucir Stormalah, with opposing frantic blast beats vs peaceful guitars and an also soothing supercool bass.r
ISIS In the Absence of Truth
Ithaca The Language of Injury
Hell yeah! These friends have an exquisite manner to achieve melody plus "This fuckin slaps". As I pay attention to some backvocals and they're gorgeous. A weird Rolo Tomassi beatdown m/ girl on vocals.rrecd Tracks - The Language of Injury; Slow Negative Order; Youth Vs Wisdom.
James Blake James Blake
Amazing and emotional vocal exercise, combined with exceptional use of auto-tune for artistic rpurposes. The use of silences is really good. Great at experimenting with glitchy electronic textures. I loved the track Limit to Your Love on radio so much that felt compelled to check this one out and it exceeded my expectations. Dude was on drugs for sure, maybe a bit too glitchy towards the end.
Jean-Michel Jarre Les Concerts en Chine
Jeff Rosenstock NO DREAM
This is the only Rosenstock that spoke to me to this date...great vibe, inventive songwriting, pace changing like hell...speedy tracks/ sections...really feels like an old 90's punk band but fresh at the same time. I love many tracks on here...

Kauan Kaiho

Keleketla! Keleketla!
Dedex doing the deeds! I'm an absolute mad about first 3/4 tracks with afro vibe. Keeping in mind its colab with such different artists, the album picks it up again towards the end with Papua Merdeka. Awesome listen. Fave track is International Love Affair.
KEN mode Loved
Sick would be the term for this. Sick cover, sick atmosphere, sick guitars, sick drums...and even sicker sax. The mood is stiff though and relies on repetition and in intensity crescendos. Really original and experimental stuff. Fave Tracks - This is a Love Test; No gentle art
Kendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d city
Khemmis Absolution
WATA FUCK dudes. this was awesome! perfect balance for me. never boring!rI WILL CARRY YOUR NAME!
Khemmis Desolation
Killer Be Killed Reluctant Hero
This one is stronger than the debut imo. Honestly wherever Puciato goes needs to stay at front as
in here. Still great props to Sanders here which never sounds bloated and pretty badass...there s
more than an handful of bangers here
Killswitch Engage Alive or Just Breathing
King Crimson Discipline
King Crimson Larks' Tongues in Aspic
Opener is a 6/5 track. Really cool vibe on this one. I feel the closer a really cool track a la Red.
King Crimson Islands
Even though a bit on improvisation mode at times (KC signature), its often brilliant and disturbing/ dark in the best way possible (something I adore on Red f.e.). I love how Sabbath meets Beatles on Ladies on the Road. My 2nd fave KC from the first 4. Underrated album!
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Polygondwanaland
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Infest the Rats' Nest
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard L. W.
Wait, glad I did this. Way more balanced, varied and remaining solid. Doom album incoming I sense.
King Woman Created In The Image Of Suffering
Female fronted, shoegazy doom release (yes) not relying on classic doom aspects (long songs, flow, repetition) but in soul grungy songwriting. Really good and original and somewhat dark.rRecd tracks - Worn; Hierophant
King Woman Celestial Blues
Massive album. If you dig ERR with Thou collab this doesn't fall much behind. Same vibe here and there, but with some poppish "a la Billie Eillish" song structures, specially on vocals, all "nicely" balanced with dirty depressed and pissed off sludge. Btw, I haven't said I like Billie Eillish. Boghz slays af.
Knocked Loose Laugh Tracks
Knocked Loose A Different Shade of Blue
This shit looks all the same yes, relies too much on breakdowns yes, kinda like these stupid vocals yes (low growls are amazing btw)...its awesome lol such as the previous one. They keep the HXC-Thrash crossover and add a more DM approach. Props for Keith Buckley's appearance. Recd tracks - By The Grave; Mistakes Like Fractures; Forget Your Name (Feat Keith Buckley); ...And Still I Wander South
Korn Life Is Peachy
Kowloon Walled City Gambling On The Richter Scale
I actually dig this debut as hell (bass there is just awesome lol)
Kowloon Walled City Container Ships

Kvelertak Meir
Kvelertak Splid
This album is pretty solid and step fw from the previous, badly produced one (fixed by Kurt Balou here). They consolidate their more approachable sound. Necrosoft is standout, such as the Ghostlike, very hard rock riffing, track Fanden ta dette hull! (check that awesome punk HXC riff and solo varying with hard rock riffs). My highlight of this album though are the more serious mood 3 final tracks, specially Delirium tremens and Ved bredden av Nihil, that shows another side of the band yet to explore.
Kyuss Welcome to Sky Valley
Lamb of God Ashes of the Wake

Lantlos Lantlos
5 brilliant tracks...don't quite know if this settles in the raw bm, blackgaze or even screamo (Envy) department tbh...really pretty stuff.
Lantlos .neon
This band beats many blackgaze acts. Really awesome balance between harsh and melo (bm and jazzy post), and very good songwriting (against Deafheaven's endless crescendos - ps: New Bermuda's digger here). Fave tracks are Pulse/Surreal (incredibly emotional song), These Nights Were Ours and the T/track. I see 4.5 potential on this one.

Marilyn Manson Holy Wood

Mastodon The Hunter
Mastodon Once More 'Round the Sun
Mastodon Emperor of Sand
Mastodon Cold Dark Place

Mastodon Medium Rarities
ahahahaha stopping by just to say this album is as unnecessary as awesome! If any doubts we could
have, Asleep in the Deep, stripped from the vocals is plain awesome stuff...Jaguar God with or
without vocals is toptier Mastodon. Live tracks are hail to some of the nastier ones on Blood
Mountain (my fave Mastodon on long term). New tracks rule. Basically this rocks.

Perfect balance between the genres mentioned above, but not as cold-hearted as this sentence may
seem...Mizmor's sophomore is really a beauty beast of a piece m/ last track is relentless af

Motorpsycho Kingdom of Oblivion

Portuguese, psychedelic project very Tame Impalish vibe. Perhaps a bit more idm. This debut was quite a thing in the portuguese rooftop idm music scene.

Nile Vile Nilotic Rites
New vocals are very different from the uniqueness cof cof cof ones from classic Nile, but they end up having cool variations along the tracks. I think they are pretty interpretative, just different ...very powerful low growls, almost Akerfeldtlike and somewhat theatrical as, lets say, Sulphur Aeon or even Meshuggah at times (?)...very dynamic...anyway, just my view unprovided from any nostalgia. Album kicks asses.
Nine Inch Nails The Fragile
Green card for experimentation as usual and this time also in lenght making this 2CD's release a little bloated imo. Helps aknowledging how incredibily influencial this band were in the 90's - 2000's for Industrial; Grunge; Synth; Eletronic, Post. Recd Track - Somewhat Damaged; The Fragile; Into the Void.
No Faith Forced Subservience

FolkBM when its done this remarkably, detailed and beautiful is a real treat for the ears. I honestly feel like I want to jump happily as a goblin! A double album with over 1h40m that I never feel it gets any old. It atmo, it folks but it also riffs as a mofo. Incredible variety within the genre, a very uplifting vibe and big step up defining this project new sound. I can see it grow to a 4.5 soon.
Oathbreaker Maelstrom
Oathbreaker Eros|Anteros
Obliteration Black Death Horizon
The bass on this or something is whipping me the sound of a Jew's Harp instrument lots of times....a "boingboing" just like it lmao...but if you don't focus on it its a really enthralling OSDM doom experience. Really solid Band. On second listen I didn't focused on that that much and its in fact really hell of an album.
Obliteration Cenotaph Obscure
drumms constantly changing the pace and consequently the genre itself!BM, death, thrash,
punkharcore and doom. The other instruments though, are pretty stiff in tone and mood but
perfectly executed in plain BDM/OSDM but with an own identity. The minor setback is lack of
variability makes you be fully focused on little changes. Fave tracks: T/t and Detestation Rite.
Oceansize Effloresce
Of Feather and Bone Bestial Hymns of Perversion
cool twist of events for the band...evil as ever riffs...the hooks are more effective...theratmosphere is completely different from the debut, as to the welcome departure of the abuse ofrbreaking beatdowns.
Of Feather and Bone Sulfuric Disintegration
This album hates us all...its very unwelcoming but weirdly rewarding after a couple of listens. Really abrasive and noisy sounding, yet they manage to go as fast as hell and still fit in a prime slower deathdoom track (Noctemnania ), offering a really nice balance to a very disturbing exp overall...closer fuckin slays with riffs. Perfect length for the genre.

Sounding off after bumping this to a 4. Indeed this shit is aiming for bigger stages. I don't care for Riverbed and Stasis, but honestly I've always liked the opener since it was out. Silver Wings is a gorgeous song and right after you get these 2 in 1 songs (The Quicksand of Existing+Vengeance&Ruination) which were huge growers. Caledonia is as weird as original as it rgets.

Daamn mates! A postapocalitic atmo DoomSludge take that even steps full on Radiohead (somewhere in the middle), by my fave grindcore band? How can I be not on board. Ah!
Pig Destroyer Mass & Volume
...so PD gonne drone...I can take this...I can take this...this fusion of post apocalyptic doom with the hardcore attitude is pushing me vibes from Pulling Teeth, which I very much like.
Pig Destroyer Head Cage
this is a great PD release (now with bass) full of groove and some longer tracks. Don't trust the
AVG cause its full of ppl suffering from melancholia that already knew their rating before listen
to the album. Enjoy the groove for yourself, always considering this ain't no classic and they are
different from what they used to. Better than BookBurner imo
Fave tracks: Army of Cops; The Torture Fields; Terminal Itch; Last song; House of Snakes
Pijn Loss
Excellent post...kinda Russian Circles meeting Toby Driver's violins with Godspeed's atmo soun
samples. Was able to acknowledge these from their colab with Conjurer. Very good chilling music.
Pijn and Conjurer Curse These Metal Hands
Conjurer hand in hand with Pijn went full Post and unexpectedly uplifting. This was very
beautiful. It really makes the name High Spirits fairness. People mentioned Baroness, but I'm
getting vibes from Mastodon's EP Cold Dark Place.

Blackcore with Post Noise...I want the LP! If you imagine a Rolo Tomassi with The Body and Full of
Hell but going BM&Punk&HC this is what you get
Portrayal of Guilt Let Pain Be Your Guide
The 4 I'm giving to this 3.5 album is because I don't want to forget this band and its amazing potential. The 3 singles (Among Friends, A Burden and Your War) and the closer Until we're dust are indeed groundbreaking as they circle between Noise, Punk, BM and Hardcore (and other you may find) genres in tracks sometimes below 2 minutes. The rest is pretty much the band experimenting their sound in a conceptual "go nowhere" manner, so you can be a little disappointed at the end.
Portrayal of Guilt Audiotree Live
Portrayal of Guilt We Are Always Alone
Their melodic sections certainly give this cool post hardcore feel to it, but when they scream is more towards the nihilistic sludgecore area. They really nailed it here with where I wanted for them to go to. Like a more "accessible" (lol) Full of Hell. This shit is awesome for the 26 insane minutes.

Relations (GER) From Birth to Death
Hardcore with a very metallic approach. Punchy, groovy, with some dm, thrash and even doomesque
vibes, weather in slow riff or actually synth, (yap, Check Hangman f.e.),specially in the end of
the songs giving them great hooks and climax. Very balanced with the perfect length and variation
for the genre.
Reverie (DK) Bliss
Excellent OSDM with some pleasing BM and punk influences and progressions. Check the tracks Fall
Apart, First Reverie and Circles. Oh and the bass on Blind at Heart...
Revocation Deathless
The complaint I have on this is the immense amount of riffs making me not reminding a single one m/m/m/! Loving the the production here as well...its been a time since I've listened to a metal album where I didn't have to put vol practically up to max...this manages to be pretty loud and sweet way below.

I honestly wasn't expecting having this much fun m/ Their kind of "one chord riffing" is
relentless and pretty unique imo (I dont know much of HM) and when they go prog they have a
certain psychedelic flare I really dig. Would like to give 3.7 but goes with 4 for cause 3.5 seems
too low for so much fun. fave tracks here are Cruel Magic, Death Knell for a King and Mortality.

This grew a lot on me on 2nd spin. It delivers awesome riffs and variation. 3rd part is my fave
from this quadra for now, although it starts pretty thrash strong with Isolation. I dig the
concept too. Guardians of Earth acoustic (and all song tbh) is so m/! Pentagram is one hell of an
instrumental track. Also Raging Void's drums have some arrhythmic flow making it damn interesting
and Voivod(esque) at times. Rating 3.8.

Shame (UK) Drunk Tank Pink
Well, I have to say this pretty much suited me. Specially after the first 2 tracks, which are still kinda indifferent to me. The darker tone they show on the next tracks is really spot on. Vocals are pretty standard for these new postpunk bands a la IDLES. There's def a Protomartyr vibe too.. The drumming is really good actually. So, not really innovative, but it did it with me!
Shores of Null Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying)
A 40' minutes track to remember. From deep funeral doom to prog metal a la Opeth, makes this an intense, varied, but also very well written journey.

thick slow riffing you add this synth soundscapes and almost gothic organ at times, giving the
desired sense of space and somewhat dark. Cool af release. Recd Tracks - Gears of Despair;
Telemachus My Sun; Organic Caverns II.

though simple, formulaic, and some hardrock in the mix (several ingredients for me to dislike) there's some cool variation in each track keeping things interesting. Recd Tracks - The Nurturing Glance; When The Universe Spoke
Solstafir Köld
Melodies, emotion and atmosphere are really intense here. I agree it sits darker and deeper as you enter it.
Soulfly Dark Ages
Prob their best here...and surely their best track here....BACK TO THE BACK TO THE BACK TO THE
FRONTLIIIIIIIIIIIINNNEEES and as a portuguese just can't forget this passage "PORRA CARALHO PORRA
Spectral Lore III
Spectral Lore Ετερόφωτος
If its "20 minutes of nothing" why take them into account then? Their explanation on bandcamp explained why like this output a little more over III. But that's just personal.
Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum Sol
This rate goes solely and exclusively for track Sol Ouroboros, which is a 5/5 track and I never want to forget about it. The other 2 tracks are also cool but only brought this rate down.
Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine
This is amazing and full of variety to keep you through the 2 hour journey. High quality BM. I'm very pleased with our Galaxy, our planet not so much. Potential bump on this beast.

If you like osdm and hardcore jump on this ASAP. Female vox! Imagine that... Recd tracks -
Survival; Seeding
Suffering Hour The Cyclic Reckoning
The cool thing about this, and what makes this unique tbf, are the absense of the usual chugs, the way they use dissonance to reach some really catchy and melodic hooks, and offcourse the atmospheric approach, I mean, the heaviest thing here are prob the vocals. Instrumentally it differs from the usual bdm we are used too, and disso bdm in particular. Its quite a jam. It's more catchy than the previous, I think they cemented and assumed their sound here. I love the rock writing nature/ approach of it.
Sufjan Stevens Michigan
Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine A Beginner's Mind
Had a great fuckin time. This is the Sufjan we all miss.
Sugar Horse The Live Long After
"A decidedly average band." as selfdescribed on their own bandcamp page sets the bar right away, so you go for it with no expectations. Kinda simple in riffs, but it's nailed on atmosphere and dynamics, going between what they call "shoegaze", that on here for me stands for post punk or hardcore with (scr)emo reminiscences, with them gorgeous soundscapes, to the thickest of doomsludge riffs, with them badass and heavy af sound. Screamed vocals speak Keith Buckley (ETID) to me too much to ignore it, in a very good way. Exquisite? Yes. Awkward? Yes. A Banger? Indeed. Go for it.
Sulphur Aeon Gateway to the Antisphere
ok this one is awesome too. rIf this one had the latest production and highlights/ slogans (like "ONEIRONAAAAAUT!" or "SINISTER SEEEEA SABBAAAAATH" f.e.) would be has good as The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos. rThe more often variation on vocals on the last one should be mentioned as well, and ends up giving more dynamic and interpretation value.
Summon (PT) Parazv Il Zilittv
Brilliant atmosphere, so so evil this one...right through the dephts of hell. Some tracks are somewhat short but doesn t hurt as a full lenght experience.
Sunn O))) Black One
drone...terrifying...an experience...barely music.
Swallow the Sun When A Shadow Is Forced into the Light
dynamic release, with some beautiful moments and varied instrumentation and vocals. All tracks rhave something I like. Depending on the mood it can get a bit dull but looking close everything is rreally well done. Tracks - When a Shadow Is Forced into the rLight; Firelights
Swans The Glowing Man
My first experience with Swans. A drone marathon that makes you loose sense of time.

While we struggle, we strive friends. By Virtue of Promise is bliss! Mycela gets heavier than anything on Sweven m/r
System of a Down Steal This Album!
Tame Impala Innerspeaker
A great watered psychedelic journey. for me to 4 on based days.
Tame Impala Currents
Landmark album. A must listen. Every tune will get you.
Tame Impala The Slow Rush
It might be Time and One more Our are my faves. Bad call for a Valentine's day album though. Very detailed and very DaftPunkish. I'm gonna set at 3.5 but still don't know if its growing like a mofo or dropping like another. Edit - growing like a mofo.
Tantra Holocausto
Teeth (USA-CA) The Curse of Entropy
Teitanblood The Baneful Choir
Here's my 4! Fave tracks are Leprous Fire and Verdict of the Dead.r
Temple of Void Lords Of Death
The band is an hidden gem yall should dig. Promising band in the Death Metal scene. Maybe this
album as a whole is not as strong as the debut, but they sure did a better effort on creating this
dissonant atmosphere very "Hooded Menace like". This album has 3 definite highlights - Wretched
Banquet, A Watery Internment's ending and the use of old school Doom Melodic Singing
(Candlemasslike) in such an heavy piece like Graven Desires is
truly epic.
Temple of Void The World That Was
Here I am, working at home, holding a (the 3rd) glass of red, and 4.5ing (as expected) a DeathDoom
album I was holding in anticipation. These guys simply know how to tight riff and get heavy
without the crazy speed, maintaining (as I expected) a sick ,slight dissonance in the melodic
leads very Hooded Menacelike that makes this my beach...also this guy's vocals are sow low yet
perceivable, which seems almost impossible. Recd Tracks - Self Schism; Casket of Shame. EDIT: I
was a tad drunk, but album is a solid 4.

The Spirit Sounds from the Vortex
now this one is much more edgy. great debut...plenty of hooks, which is uncommon in the genre.
Constantly shifting leads and pace really keeps you engaged track to track.
The Strokes Is This It
The Strokes Room on Fire
A very balanced and focused album enhancing the band's strengths.
The Strokes The New Abnormal
I say this release is very intelligent.. Eternal Summer is very daft punkish. The album takes somewhat of a surprising and welcome turn, from Eternal Summer onwards, providing variety and showing songwriting abilities. Opener, Selfless, Bad Decisions, Eternal Summer, At the Door, Not the Same, Ode to the Mets are all tracks that stick. It's cool that some songs reminds us of some others famous ones. Band seems back in the game and I feel this as much has the debut.r
The War On Drugs A Deeper Understanding
The White Stripes Elephant
This Gift Is A Curse A Throne of Ash
This Slaps! Evocative as hell BM with hints of HXC and Post in the mix. Someone get his hands on
reviewing this. WWOOAAAA! Recd Tracks - Gate Dweler; Monuments for Dead Gods; Wolvking; Wormwood
This Mortal Coil It'll End in Tears
Thom Yorke Anima
Thou Peasant
Thou Summit

I guess no one should get pass through a track named after Witch Cunt so lightly...this is like the best band ever we are always afraid to explain someone why we dig it...and if we do, we do it almost certainly unsuccessfully.
Thou Inconsolable

Thou Blessings of the Highest Order
Pack with 16 of the filthiest Nirvana covers. r
Thou Hightower

And the show of tDEP's afilliates continues...great vibes also of glassjaw. Give us the LP already!
Thy Catafalque Geometria
Thy Catafalque Naiv
All album is very good. Track 5 and 6 really clicked with me, but hey, I'm a big fan of that flute
folksy vibe with electronics a la Shpongle. Geometria somehow gave me no interest on checking
their discog...now I want to do them all. No complaints on the metal sections at all! Its really
awesome how seamless the genre fusion gets on Naiv.
Thy Catafalque Vadak
One of a kind project. If you love prog and experimental metal and had your share of psy(bient)trance this is for you. The multiplicity of instruments is also outstanding.

Wrecking BM album. The Portuguese speech sections are delightful.
Tod Huetet Uebel N.A.D.A.
Tomb Mold Primordial Malignity
Full of power, beef and filthiness on this one. Almost as good as the next one.rRecd tracks - Merciless Watcher; Clockwise Metamorphosis; Vernal Gracer
Tombs Path of Totality
Tombs Under Sullen Skies
Simple but effective riffs, great production, huge and heavy sound, incredible songwriting - makes you circle to a true dark depressing metal compendium (BM, DM, Post, Sludge, Hardcore, Doom, Funeral Doom even...) everything we love on metal can be found here and still holds as one whole very solid narrative - again, simple on the surface, the album offers a lot of complexity, and an overall dark vibe you can just get lost in (in a good way). It could def get a little trim on some songs, but it feels very convincing overall, its a very good one for several listens.r
Tool Opiate
Sweat just rocks m/. Vocals on Hush just awesome. Guitar riff on Part of Me just amazing. Live tracks just flawless. This more straight forward approach metal turned out to be an excellent addition to Tool's catalogue. Kick ass of an EP!
Tosca Going Going Going
Going Going Going goes, and delves deeper as it goes, through dub, downtempo, clubb, rooftop andrpsychedelic, while remaining always minimal, great sound to chill from the well known duet Kruderr& Dorfmeister.
Trap Them Darker Handcraft
Tribulation The Horror
Awesome, quick, fast paced. Thrash-death flirting hxc a la Entombed...great debut, showing the
ability, yet leaving little clue about the class this band would come to be made of.
Tribulation The Children of the Night
These guys have that awesome swede smoothness I came to love...
Tribulation Where the Gloom Becomes Sound
The last one with Hulten on the writings. You could call it a little safe in continuation from Down Below. The back half of the album shows a little more energy and progression. Love Tribulation - Daughter of the Djinn and Funeral Pyre are prob my 2 faves.
Triptykon Eparistera Daimones
Tropical Fuck Storm A Laughing Death in Meatspace
Turnstile Glow On
I felt like a kid again but with these litlle postish electronic touches to justify why listen to it now, giving it some sort of freshness ahah very cool. Found it pretty tasteful. It riffs!r
Turris Eburnea Turris Eburnea
I know this is an EP but its only flaw is being too short. Well done, and albeit intricate and complex it manages to be very dynamic. Cotard Delusion creeps da fuck out with the violin line in the middle. The "tender yet disturbing" psyjazzy solo on Syncretism Incarnate is also proof of the dynamics, both on instruments and writing. Props for the sick bassline. For fans of Gorguts, Artificial Brain and the new pretty boys Ad Nauseam.

Ulver Perdition City
I was digging this album even more than Themes From William Blake, but the tracks We Are Dead, Dead City and Catalept were a tad too much on experimental soundtrack mode.
Ulver The Assassination of Julius Caesar
Un and Coltsblood Coltsblood / Un
2 tracks. 42' minutes of music. The brilliance Sludge Doom tempered with DM, giving the perfect
balance and pace. Be patient and, if its your case, get to know these two promising modern doom
bands: Coltsblood (novelty for me), which curious enough has the stronger track here, and Un
(check the album Sentiment asap).
Undeath Lesions of a Different Kind
Undergang Aldrig i livet
Usnea Portals Into Futility
Although the sound does not feel as crushing/ big on a first glance, as some other acts of the
genre, mind, is a very very tight job, extremely dynamic in songwriting and vocals (melodic to the
screech to the lowest growl possible). All tracks end up being beasts of their own, special
advertise for the riffs on the 20 minutes closer- awesome way to end this album - Who would've
thought this album had space for a rocker, coherently?
Usurpress Interregnum

Venenum Trance of Death

ok altrock should be dead by now...I don't know why I'm checking this but I think its because its pretty good actually...the singer gave me a lot of vibes from Cornell and Alex Turner...felt a very mature work and fave tracks are Super Sleuth and Mourning On The Range.

Great vocals and variety. Riffz and Blast Beats for days!

Vitriol (USA) To Bathe From the Throat of Cowardice
Put it as loud as you can and get ready for an ear rape...of the best kind...the most unpleasantly rgood listen from 2019. Dissonant DM. Impressive how, with this kind of mix, you can hear the bass rall the way through and its awesome. Solos, when they come in, they are facemelting...too much!? ryou may think that...but there's always something that keeps drawing you in...dare I call varied r(?). Anaal's vibe on vocals, but the levels of insanity/ wall of sound provide a more groovie and rhooked Portal sound. Recd Tracks - I Drown Nightly; The Rope Calls You Brother; Pain Will Define rTheir Death.
Voices (UK) From The Human Forest Create A Fugue Of Imaginary
Eyes become Black is one of their best songs imo m/ beautiful chorus, lead guitar and what a fuckin outro!!rEYESS BCOME BLAAAAACK!
Voices (UK) Frightened
VoidCeremony Entropic Reflections Continuum: Dimensional...
Somehow I put this in the line of acts like Cryptic Shift. It felt very proggy despite the thick crust OSDM aesthetics. Sure its more slimey..I find Cryptic Shift a little classier but damn this slays too.
Voivod Phobos
trying to figure why the AVG on this album...I mean WTF? lol the industrial and post vibes are awesome, its dark with some grunge on the mix (fitting perfectly this time). I really dig this one X) I'll probably piss someone off but This>Outer Limits (but way better)
Voivod Killing Technology
deaththrash with a punk vibe going proggy? so its awesome in that way. Bad production but
everything is audible. I didn't have a clew that this was being made when I was four X) m/ Faves:
Tornado; This is not an exercise; Cockroaches
Voivod The Wake
Getting to know this band..this is my first entry and it was really cool proggy thrash. Faves: Inconspiracy;Event Horizon and Sonic Mycelium
Wake Devouring Ruin
Super cool release, diving on the postHardcore Sludge, but with clear leanings to DM, BM and Doom. You can have it all this in one piece and keep it really coherent. Recd tracks - This Abyssal Pain; Torchbearer.
Wayfarer A Romance with Violence
Amazing and solid release. A very post BM american western folk album. The closer Vaudeville
(f.e.) is a portent beauty.
Weeping Sores False Confession
..awesome album!!!!!!! cutting violins on Transfiguration is something I never "saw" in music: "False Confessions is an uncommonly good heavy record. Few bands have been able to take death metal and doom to such deliriously weird places while still retaining that beautiful and affecting meditative experience. Weeping Sores, however, do it expertly."
White Stones Kuarahy
Smooth, brilliantly paced, uncompromising, heavy and evil. Will be back with more details.
Whitechapel The Valley
Wasn t expecting to like this. Also pos for the review and the bravery of comparing with RoN, I see the resemblance. Guitars and vocals are so damn thick and gotta love when they take those heavy riffs slowly and kinda doomy. Great use of non cheesy melo vocals.r
Whores. Gold
Windhand Grief's Infernal Flower
This is great stonerdoom. Their last 2 releases start indeed really similar, just enter the flow with the simplest, slow and thick riffs layered with the most sweet, sour and silky vocals. Perfect stoned ride. Recd tracks - Crypt Key; Hyperium; Heperus
Windhand Eternal Return
Well I liked this one a lot...Sweet psy stoner doom. The grunge tone over the psy is very cool. The thick low guitars match really nice with the gal's smooth voice. Nothing surprising overall agreed, but its damn satisfying...rRecd tracks - Halycon; Grey Garden; Feather
Windir 1184
Winterfylleth The Divination Of Antiquity
Winterfylleth The Hallowing of Heirdom
Winterfylleth The Siege Of Mercia
Wishfield Wishfield
Post rock, Shoegaze and Black Metal - Disclaimer - its not "traditional" Blackgaze, its really a
somewhat radiohead'ish sounding black metal. Super original sound. It's prob hipster stuff, but
I don't mind. The fret-less bass and guitar were a true joy to my hears.
Witch Vomit Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave
The pace changes and grooves hard on this one m/ Imma 4 it. Solos and sections are resourceful af!

Untouched 70s symphonic prog worship. Very well done, masterfully perfomed transitions.

Wormrot Voices
Wounds (USA-IL) Light Eater
Straight 4 to this inventive and awesome deathgrind&techdeath EP. Great variation of vocals for the genre. The bass is always there. Crazy drumming and tech riffing af. The way songs are structured and the groove avoids this to be over spastic. Recd Track - Metamorphosis (just enjoy while it transforms)
YOB The Unreal Never Lived
Younger Brother Vaccine
Yves Tumor Safe in the Hands of Love
Experimental stuff going hip/tripop, noise and latent punk feel. Personal stuff, weird charachter such as the music. There's 3 magical tracks on this - Noid; Licking An Orchid; Life Time.

Aborted embracing (melo)death this time and mixing with their brutal drumming style. Just an album to show they are capable of pretty much anything they want...if they want.
AC/DC Ballbreaker
Acid Witch Witchtanic Hellucinations
Adrenalized Tales From The Last Generation
Though I hold it tenderly, I'm not a big fan of this type of songwriting anymore, but its well done...3...the riffs and how good they all are made the rest of my rating. Kvelertak's, early Comeback kid came to mind. Really cool crossover, fast&rip
Adventures Supersonic Home
Aeternam Al Qassam
Very good prod. Great balance between melody and brutality. Esoteric arabic/ middle eastern vibe ever present. Its very consistent, but a tad hard to pin the highlights on a first listen. Really dig how this dudes prog here though...songs have unexpected turns, yet very cinematic.
Afterbirth Foeticidal Embryo Harvestation
...I like so much more the demo versions than the EP versions lol drummer is insane!!! Recd
Track - Rebirth. Note: their live show must have been something back in the days...very pleased

this is solid. Just love those slow sludgy riffs like on So Far Under f.e.
All Pigs Must Die Hostage Animal
This shit rocks. Some killer songs. I like the slower ones to, it gets everything sludgier. Cruelty incarnate crescendo song is a pretty good example. Some cool variations and thrash reminescenses. Agree with stiff mid-range vocals critique though.r
All Them Witches Our Mother Electricity
All Them Witches Sleeping Through the War
Def a more radio rock approach on this one. Loosing a bit on their atmospheric side. If you don t mind that, the album is a 3.5.
All Them Witches ATW
Allegaeon Apoptosis
Potential 3 album with too many tech highlights to be ignored. Found the melodic parts vs harsh parts a bit inconsistent. m/ Recd Tracks - Interphase // Meiosis; Metaphobia.
Altar of Plagues White Tomb
Though a bit un-tight at times, the album is on full atmosphere work, which is great for that matter btw
Alter Bridge Fortress
Alterbeast Feast
Amenra Mass II: Sermons
Amia Venera Landscape The Long Procession
Drumming and atmo are superb here...not digging the melodic vocals, not even a bit...not the vocals per se, but in terms of the songwriting...feels somewhat dated emo idk...not feeling it. The rest is very Cult of Luna/ The Ocean post. cool stuff. Recd Tracks - Marasm; Nichlas
Anaal Nathrakh Desideratum
This is good Anaal Nathrakh but playing quite "safe" witch makes the all thing not much varied.
Desideratum, Sub Specie and Rage and Red great tracks. 2nd part of the album appealed to me much
Anaal Nathrakh A New Kind of Horror
They're back to the groove. Free porn music, as alternative, heavy, chaotic and aggressive as pop, groovy and catchy. Much better release than the previous one. This band is not be taken much serious in order to have fun with it. Favorite tracks: Forward! and Mother of Satan (Satan!Satan!Satan!Satan!Satan!Satan!Satan!).
Anathema The Optimist
Anciients Voice of the Void
Pure modern, very technical, progressive metal. Everything is clean and shiny with great amount of
heaviness. The versatility on the vocals (whether with "no cheese" melodic, or different high and
low pitch growls) is amazing. Stylistically they also go all-round death, melodeath, prog, bm you
name it...The only setback on this the is the casual excess of "wanking" without exactly being
"outside of the box" (genre issue), but they sure grab you whenever you start thinking that. Fave:
Pentacle (brutal "toolesque" track)
Anna von Hausswolff Dead Magic
Anna von Hausswolff All Thoughts Fly
Anti The Insignificance of Life
A very interesting approach, simple sad tremolo riffs setting the mood...somewhat of the same
electronic beat along the album gives it a very unique flow. I pretty much like everything but
hoped for a little more variation, as the cool intros of the songs would induce so, all tracks
ending in fade out can become very un-engaging at a certain point. That said the slow track Zero
Point f.e. is very blissful (too bad even with the fade out, seems cut) followed by the relentless
Mourning Soul makes a def highlight. Bonus tracks on re-issue are about as good if not better.
rate is for the reissued version.

Production is a bit too lowfi for me(thought every instruments are completely audible), but as a one man band and independent is pretty impressive stuff and full of cool modern ideas between all the classic BM features. Fave track: The Rush of Childlike Independence and Fateful Lies; Love's Crippled Decay (on both love those lead guitars "bridges"and solos in the middle and end of the tracks)

Convictors Atrocious Perdition
Straight Forward DM band. Great riffing and some great tracks, specially when they vary the mood and speed. The mood is set when the creature from the cover there shouts to you on first track: YOU DISGUST MEEEE. As setback, though brutal, it lacks a bit on atmosphere and depth.rRecd Tracks - Withdrawn; Criteria
Convocation Ashes Coalesce
Copeland Blushing
its very well done...goes to much on hiphop and auto-tuning for my tastes at times, but the indie
vibe parts are very inventive. Listened 2 times and def went from a 3 to 3.5. The solo on
Colorless was unexpected.
Corrosion of Conformity Deliverance
Corrosion of Conformity No Cross No Crown
Corrupt Moral Altar Mechanical Tides
Cruciamentum Charnel Passages
Really good stuff, only too much DM centered for my taste.
Cryptosis Bionic Swarm
Cult of Luna Vertikal II
Cursed III: Architects of Troubled Sleep
Daft Punk Human After All
Damien Jurado Maraqopa
Really great songs here and there. Special when he's more Nick Drake and Dylan than Jack Jhonson
Dark Angel Darkness Descends
Dark Fortress Tales from Eternal Dusk
Straight fw bm, with folksy leads, too many riffs. All songs hit like de ja vu though.
Darkthrone Panzerfaust
Darkthrone Arctic Thunder
definitely not focused on speed anymore but rather on some doomy aspects. Also nice hard rock
riffs and punk drumming. Nothing is overwhelming in any aspect (technique or brutality) but still
a nice release. Recd Tracks - Tundra Leach; Boreal Fiends; Deep Lake Trespasses
Darkthrone Old Star
Daughters Canada Songs
Tdep math-core with Converge like screaming. It's quite an 11 minutes experience X)
Daughters Hell Songs
impressive drum work, more impressive guitar work and jazzy outputs makes this by far their most
interesting and cool release...In fact all instruments and features do stand out. Cool adding of
the new type of vocals, definitely leaving the convergeresque genre in the previous making it more
original and creating their own identity. This one gives me great Calculating Infinity vibes on
tracks like X-Ray f.e.
Daughters You Won't Get What You Want
I like the songs Satan on the Wait and one or other towards the end (Less Sex, Daughter, The Reason they hate me sequence is specially engaging) when they decide here rand there to be slightly musical. This is like a dark postpunk noise "band" now - they succeeded in that way. cool experimental stuff
De Staat I_CON
De Staat O
the party spirit almost ruin these dudes talent, but when its showing they're great.
Dead and Dripping Miasmic Eulogies Predicating an Eternal Nocturne
Dead Congregation Graves of the Archangels
The album is weirdly balanced as one disjointed set of songs...but you can tell, you can tell...
Dead Prez Let's Get Free
Dead To A Dying World Elegy
Violin guided BM, mixed with sludgedoom and flirts even with blackgaze, turns out to be a very
rpleasant and varied experience. Female vox almost blows, but all tracks and album flows
nice.rRecd rTracks - The Seer's Embrace; Empty Hands, Hollow Hymns; Of Moss and Stone.
Deafheaven Sunbather
Deafheaven 10 Years Gone
Death Engine Place Noire

Downfall of Gaia Epos
Downfall of Gaia Atrophy
Dream Theater Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Drowning Pool (USA-TX) Sinner
Dry Kill Logic The Dead and Dreaming
Dzo-nga The Sachem's Tales
I'm pretty new to the low-fi BM concept but this album is a pretty nice experience...its really cool. Is the ambiance (raining, then birds and trees) anything to do with the seasons? Though a rbit too classic or folksy for me it sure looks like a careful and tasteful work. The Witching Meadow's piano performance is sublime. TKS Sevengil.
Dzo-nga Thunder In the Mountains
Earth Pentastar: In The Style Of Demons
Editors An End Has A Start
Elder (USA-MA) Elder
Great tunes of Sleep's and Electric Wizzard's worship. Solid debut.
Electric Wizard Witchcult Today
I just have to face the truth that another Dopethrone would/ could never exist again
Emperor Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
Empyrium Weiland
Sometimes the German singing and symphonic bits puts me a little off ngl, but damn there's some
delicious cuts. I like how they added bm vocals and drums to the acoustic outputs. TKS a lot park.
Enslaved E
Envy The Fallen Crimson
TKS Sput for setting me up to Japanese screamo...I mean wtf...I get a lot of post vibes from bands such as Alcest. Pretty good and genuine stuff. First time with the band. I kinda envy ppl who are able to adore this (sorry for the pun). I'm crazy for the tracks Statement of Freedom and A Faint New World, they are so awesome, but then I end up getting super annoyed until Fingerprint Mark (another banger). I'm sorry I don't live up to this hype. Maybe that changes again...
Eoront Gods Have No Home
Really solid BM. Although it lacks a little of punch it focuses more on the atmosphere, where the
acoustic inputs (chords, violins/synths, choirs, horns etc) are often delightfully layered. The
Hermit and The Midday Herbs are my faves here I think.
Ephel Duath The Painter's Palette
Weird but cool blend of metal and jazz. Virtuous work on trumpet, bass and guitar. Its pretty un-engaging as free jazz is kinda supposed to. It has the common progressive songwriting flaws, but its fun to get all this mix at once X) overall great experience.rRecd tracks - Ruins; The Other's Touch
Esoctrilihum Eternity Of Shaog
Every Time I Die Gutter Phenomenon
Evil Blizzard The Worst Show on Earth
I have to say after I saw band's pics this sounded even nicer, and the album is actually called the worst show on earth...Its for a fact the weirdest stoner... Recd tack - Pull God from the Sky
Eximperitus... Šahrartu
Great album without being impressive. The track Tahadu rules hard.
Extol Extol
...I'm getting more used to the idea of entering the gates of righteousness rand in fact life can be sweet in metal as long if you got these riffs...
Eyehategod In the Name of Suffering
Faith No More Sol Invictus
I like tripping albums...few songs here are reaaaally good. For me Cone of Shame and Matador takes the cup.
Falls of Rauros Patterns in Mythology
A very beautiful piece, although sometimes I forget I'm listening to it. Recd Track - Weapons of Refusal
False Portent
Super cold and fast paced BM. Drums and bass are amazingly fast. Vocals are BM classic, but pretty flawless. Guitars are tremolo grandiose. Recd Tracks - The Serpent Sting, The Smell of Goat (THIS TRACK IS BEAUTIFUL)
FIEND (FR) Seeress
Fish A Feast Of Consequences
So this is what the dude from Marillion has been up to. I miss his edginess vocally, which its not quite shown here. Still very well written, masterfully played and immaculately produced.
Fleshkiller Awaken
This is great if you like Extol. I've heard Fleshkiller before (without knowing they were ex extol) its a little more boring. Not as mind-challenging, still great sound...but a little bland comparing to Extol. Also some riffs here and there looks some Extol ripp off, but well if anyone is entitled to rip off Extol are them. Fave tracks: Inherit and Warfare
Fluisteraars Bloem
Flying Lotus You're Dead!
I dig it more than the latest, but again it has this sketchy nature, attached to the experimentation, that doesn't help me to pass the fact of being music for musicians and samplers. Whenever you start to get in some tune, the song ends or changes abruptly, therefore I find hard to get the relevance of it, other than that. The vibes and texture work are often amazing.
Foo Fighters There Is Nothing Left to Lose
Foo Fighters One by One
Fornicus Sulphuric Omnipotence
Frontierer Oxidized
Frozen Soul Crypt Of Ice
This is what this is. Cool(Cold) breathed vocals, filthy mid-paced riffs. Could benefit for more solos, or leads, or tempo shifts, to add a bit more dynamics. The only thing really memorable is the cool and well achieved vibe.
Fustilarian All This Promiscuous Decadence
Gaerea Limbo
Excellent production, great vibe, practically all songs drag a bit too long though. Debut varies way more in less runtime. Fave track here: Urge.
Gang of Youths Let Me Be Clear

First 3 tracks are kinda meh for me...subsequent 3 tracks push me all the right buttons tho.
Grouper Ruins
This gets the 3.5 stamp of music to listen with the babe X) songwriting is one jam per song, only small changes in intensity. It's very tender, raw and the atmosphere is very intimate. Love the track Holding.
Haley Heynderickx I Need to Start a Garden
Hallucinogen The Lone Deranger
Hashshashin Badakhshan
Drumming takes the lead here and its often impressive, sometimes almost don t serve the music's purpose, but on other hand gives it a little twist. In the end sound is very original and well executed. Cool assassin s creed soundtrack ahahah

Listen to this if you are in for a quickie of riffs. m/
Hellripper The Affair of the Poisons
A fun formula, no more no less.
Hessian Crucible Morbidity Demo
okay, this demo goes super hard, and for a demo is very well produced. A lot of interesting cool riff progressions and vibes from bm to dm to doom. Vocals are on point. Its a pity they haven't released anything more (yet?), so they could work in finding a little more depth to their songs. Fave track for me here is Hell Blast.
High on Fire Luminiferous
High on Fire Bat Salad
His Hero Is Gone The Plot Sickens: Enslavement Redefined
Horrendous The Chills
Great Debut. Don't see this as generic stuff but prob is their more generic work though...Ripped to Shreds in fact rips and shreds. There's something 21st century about these dudes.Fave tracks - Ripped to Shreds, The Somber
Hypno5e Des Deux l'une Est l'autre
weeeeeird but there's something really cool here lol atmospheric nu-metalcore? Great Album....don't like the french accent when they go melodic in English...and the album is too damn long ...also is a pretty easy escape from the dudes to put a voice sample along the tracks to get that atmospheric/ apocalyptic vibe...but...they are very good, specially the guitars and its new enthralling metalcore.
Illyria The Carpathian Summit
PostBlack/ Blackgaze at its finest in the vein of Alcest. The dearest cover on metal scene. The album's beauty matches the cover. Everything is really well done and dynamic with great attention to details. Harsh, melodic, brilliant acoustic features and amazing basswork.
Impaled Nazarene Ugra-Karma
Incantation Sect of Vile Divinities

Interpol Antics
Interpol El Pintor
Iron Monkey 9-13
Isengard Vårjevndøgn
It It Anita Laurent
punk/ postpunk release from a Belgium band that looks really comfortable on that grey area between punk/ hardcore vibe and some post, doomy aspects. The last ones, much more noticeable on the second part of the album and that can divide you or make it more "interesting". The first part is full of bangers though! Fave Tracks: User Guide; 11; Say No; GOD
James Blake Assume Form
always cool how this fella does hip-hop, going through DaftPunk's (auto)tunes to late Radiohead's experimentation. I like it. The big loss here is when the production and experimentation goes over the music and it gets a bit random. Recd Tracks - Assume Form; Tell Them; Where's the Catch.

It's not that this and Lark are taking the magic of Red for me, but I can definitely see the same features perfected there (both closers f.e.) and glued to a more interestingly challenging songwriting and emotional delivery...I guess that's why I fived Red...
King Dude Music To Make War To
enjoyed this dark goth vibe. another great release/ debut
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Nonagon Infinity
Though a bit light mood tiring, its a very consistent album in jam mode.
Kingnomad The Great Nothing
Knocked Loose A Tear in the Fabric of Life
Korn Take a Look in the Mirror
Kowloon Walled City Grievances
I found this 3rd one more of the same, thus I'm keeping the 3.5 here...If this band was to keep it
going they really needed to reinvent themselves, cause it seems they have nowhere to go. Really
cool output though, don't get me wrong.

Lantlos Agape
Very good atmosphere. Need a few more listens on this one. I got a bit lost on the songwriting but there's def something special here.
Lantlos Melting Sun
Cherry Quartz is a delish! I know its the other way around but it gives me big Numenorean vibes X) vocals are far from perfect but they're genuine.
Leeched You Took The Sun When You Left
They use the beatdown in the meanest way possible. Good ambiance created with electronics (code orangeresque) also helping some unpredictability in the songwriting. Really enjoyable but not lasting - cons some songs are just too slow or mid paced...this kind of brutality sometimes asks for more speed. Its heavy, mean but a bit one sided in mood. Fave tracks: Raised by Lead and Harrow the Pastures
Leprous Tall Poppy Syndrome
Leprous Pitfalls
They are good at what they settle to do...full on pop style here tho. Muse could take this road tbh.
Linkin Park Hybrid Theory

I was kinda of scared this was a brand new hype, but it turned out a pretty interesting release. Indie/Alt rock done right. Some beautiful soundscapes and the overall narrative is really cohesive. Still not sure the screams are necessary. rFave Tracks - Flee, Thou Matadors!; New Wine, New Skins.
MGMT Little Dark Age

The album fucks pre hard. It has a 4 quality. The fact of being instrumental makes me think I won't comeback much to it though. Fave tracks - Change the Wolrd Drinking Coffee; Do it for My Cactus...
Michael Kiwanuka Home Again
Midnight Sweet Death and Ecstasy
Mindkult Lucifer's Dream
Well being the first one to rate this, if your into the new sludge metal scene this is a pretty
cool release. so, as usual, vocals aren't great, but with a little prog rock tool feel and also
some stoner rock riffs.

Recommended track - Nightmares.

This is an authentic movie soundtrack. but a beautiful one. Cute band. Recd Tracks - Burial at Sea; Silent Flight

Necrophobic Mark of the Necrogram
Nero di Marte Immoto
They definitely have what I already can call Italian Dissonant Black Metal (from bands like Noise
Trail Immersion f.e.)...also find this to have a lot of "post math jazz rock" influence. I
understand complaints about the vocals, but I actually think they add a brilliant interpretation
characteristic. Very interesting release. The only set back is that it gets too loose and
atmospheric for me, loosing at the same time just a little bit of focus, that could turn this into
awesome levels (imo). Recd track - La Casa Del Diavolo
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Ghosteen
Nick Drake Bryter Layter
Night Verses From the Gallery of Sleep
This is good. Maynard would fit this perfectly, but you almost don't miss the vocals on it. A lot rof APC or tool vibes, but also Deftones for sure...but everything more tchnical. Its really rstrange and I'm surprised by an instrumental record.rEDIT: Fuck that 3.5, I must go to a 4! no wait I'm going back to 3.5 because I'm disappointed with their background and previous releases

Ophidian Blackbox
some friend told me this was hardcore industrial...well this is not that...his head only sees
techno, so that was implicit...either way..the ambient soundscape is fuckin awesome and you get
automatically engaged with the beat...wasn't expecting to listen this in full but I just couldn't
stop. Textures on this are amazingly explored tickling your brain constantly.

Solid Swede thrash death debut, great production. I like the more accessible Vektor comparison, also catching sort of glam swede metal from bands like Tribulation, much provided by the similar vocals. Guitar leads tones are pretty damn straight beautiful.r
Parius The Eldritch Realm
The bass is boss here and its brilliant! Great melodeath fitting the Halloween season. Everything comes in as a bit of a joke but its kinda intended that way. There's not much depth and 30 minutes flew by but the production,technicality and execution are brilliant though.

Revulsion (FIN) Revulsion
I do like this groove ngl, albeit the album may lack a little of density, its a bit direct. It's still a pretty good and bad ass debut effort.
Richard Cheese The Sunny Side of the Moon
Rifftera Across The Acheron
Both their albums rule hard m/m/. The melodic vocals balance with the harsh ones pretty well and
original. The melodic parts may get a little too much at times for the genre on a pair of tracks
though. The songwriting is not very surprising, but it really sets the identity of the band after
the debut. Recd Tracks - Eye of the Storm; Cry Wolf
Ringworm Death Becomes My Voice
If you want crossover thrash - hardcore riffs this is for you. Do not disappoint in that regard.

lower the rate here.
Shades of Deep Water Death's Threshold
I'm not big on funeral doom, but could listen to track 2 all day.

Album is pretty solid but ultimately sterile, which makes some emotional passages needless, and even cringy at times. Classic but tight songwriting. Recd tracks - The Dreaded Mystic Abyss; Oudenophobia; Barren and Breathless.r

There's something really cool on this hard rock outfit mixed with super group prog wanking. Really
dig the piano added on King of Delusion and the ending 15 minute track is sure another highlight.

Soulfly done right! Ritual, Summoning and Demonized are awesome tracks. Nothing new tbh except the

should bet in a big long drone LP with this dark sound. The occasional growls are very welcome!
TesseracT One
Thaetas Shrines to Absurdity
The Acacia Strain It Comes in Waves
And just when I thought 2019 was over...I know I don't need to discogrun these fellas...apparently they've outdone themselves. I still kinda wish they go a bit faster here and there...great vibe though...will come back to it.
The Afghan Whigs In Spades
The Aristocrats You Know What...?
Virtuous, Free, Unfocused, Fun Jams. r
The Atlas Moth An Ache for the Distance
The Atlas Moth The Old Believer
The Atomic Bitchwax Scorpio
The Body I Shall Die Here
The Body No One Deserves Happiness
The Body I have fought against it, But I can’t any longer
The Body I’ve Seen All I Need To See
This is the first The Body that really hits me. Maybe I should go back on their discog now.
The Chariot The Fiancee
The Chariot Wars and Rumors of Wars
The Claypool Lennon Delirium South of Reality
A more psychedelic The Beatles with a genius bass player. A little too goofy...a common flaw in the genre. Still a great listen.
The Comet Is Coming Trust in the Lifeforce of Deep Mystery
The Crown Royal Destroyer
This is still pretty good, but whoever's saying it beats Cobra Speed Venom is wrong XD I'm talking about the hooks and the difference between tracks, and the somewhat more organic production. But again I'm not a classic melodeath person, I'm just looking for fun.
The Damned Things High Crimes
As if ETID went Weezer. Still better than any late Weezer. Keith shows again he's an
awesomeperformer and can do pretty much everything. The rest is normal but unpretentious
satisfying fun bluesrock. Recd tracks - The fire is cold; Invincible; Cells.
The Dear Hunter Act V: Hymns with the Devil in Confessional
The Drones Feelin Kinda Free
The Faceless In Becoming a Ghost
The Flamingo Jones The 5th Floor Of The Tree
Really good chilling collection of unedited psystoner songs. I get lot of vibes from The Doors
f.e., yet its a much more meandering background outfit.
The Gathering How to Measure a Planet?
The Last Internationale Soul on Fire
Great altrock. Also really good vocals. Only setback is practically all songs its only one tune
each, only shifting in intensity (White Stripean jam).
The Lurking Fear Out Of The Voiceless Grave
The National Sleep Well Beast
The Ocean Pelagial
The Prodigy Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
The Prodigy The Day Is My Enemy
The Psyke Project Apnea
The Strokes First Impressions of Earth
This could be prob my fave from The Strokes..The band maintains its identity and leaps onto other shores from loads of contemporary fave bands of mine (Muse, QOTSA, Interpol, Radiohead etc...). First 4 tracks are awesome, Vision of Division and kinda dig Electricityscape. The album meanders and have some tracks that are major step-backs. I know the line is thin but some times not only Casablancas but the whole band seems to be drunk. Still rate 3.5 cause it has some of their darkest tracks.
Them Crooked Vultures Them Crooked Vultures
Thievery Corporation The Temple of I & I
This Gift Is A Curse All Hail The Swinelord
Thou The House Primordial
Thou A Primer of Holy Words
Times of Grace The Hymn of a Broken Man
Together to the Stars An Oblivion Above
Great BM towards the light...First 2 tracks don't say much to me but the other 2 are really good. Recd Tracks - Apathy and Sanctuary.
TOKiMONSTA Midnight Menu
Tombs Monarchy of Shadows
Torche Admission
Although each track have fairly one riff, the vibe and atmo are awesome and somewhat original (?). For sure they teach Baroness a lesson how to produce a sludge album.rAdmission is one of the best ones here...certainly different from the rest of the album...almost tunes from bands like Interpol etc (post The Cure etc). Also dig the slight change on What Was to make almost a single chorus...its a pity they don't gamble more on these slight changes X
Trap Them Seizures In Barren Praise
Trap Them Crown Feral
it starts really grindly promising, but it falls short in the 2nd part...cool listening and ending
track though
Triangulo de Amor Bizarro oɹɹɐzıqɹoɯɐǝpolnƃuɐıɹʇ
This is interesting, even if it seems that the band is divided between postpunk revival/noise rock and the neo Japan dreampop (even if this is in Spanish). As if one member from the band wants one thing and some other wants another. The title being the band up side down is completely anoying...good stuff all around tho.
Triptykon Melana Chasmata
Trophy Scars Holy Vacants
Great and happy bluesy rock album. Well and carefully done. Still don't get the hype, yet its way better than any New Brand of Alkaline batteries.
Tropical Fuck Storm Braindrops
The album definetely lacks the punk energy from the first one. I have to say it ends pretty strong emotionaly but first part is a bit of a let down imo, creatively speaking. Maybe its a grower yeah...r
Trouble Trouble
Trvth A Galvanizing Derivation
best tracks here are, no doubts, T/track and Affect The Whole...I don't how do explain it better
than "I love those toolish riffs melting on more dissonant bm vibe". Congrats!
Two People Second Body
I like this album and the group's vibe, but as the cover even suggests, it comes as a bit lazy, when comparing to the debut's quality, experimentation and feeling, on all tracks.
Type O Negative Life Is Killing Me
Ufomammut 8
Ulfven Folklore
Pretty clean 3.5 but hardly a 4. will get back to it fs though. Nocturnal Watcher was my fave here. TKS Trif
Ulver Themes From William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
You can miss the folk and the BM but this is one bold, poetic, devilish tripop piece. The hints of BM are still there. This also breathes NIN's nineties era with tons of other vibes.
Ulver Shadows of the Sun
URSA Abyss Between the Stars
Good doom/sludge. In middle-ground between Pallbearer and Khemmis. Cool riffs, epic vocals and
also beauty. Not bad for "dragons music". Dragon's Beard and Serengeti Yeti stood out for me.
Usurpress The Regal Tribe
Vengeful Spectre Vengeful Spectre
If ever was possible to merge all Chinese cliche sounds into one BDM outfit and remains cool it is
here fellas. 3.7.
Vimur Triumphant Master of Fates
Vltimas Something Wicked Marches In
VOLA Applause of a Distant Crowd
I got all the references (that yap, can be misleading, but they're there). There's also a lot of Ulver's last release vibe in some post aspects as to the general Depeche Mode inspiration. The djent is no issue for me when is cool like this. Easy listen and easy 3.5 for now but I think it will grow. What is preventing me from raising this up is I think this album deserves a vocalist with more personality, but this kind of vocals thrive on northern Europe's post bands (perfectly tuned, scholar, ethereal but also cold and unengaging) - Favorite tracks are T/t and Whaler. r
Vukari Aevum
Wake Confluence
Wardruna Kvitravn
Warforged Two Demons
We Never Learned To Live The Sleepwalk Transmissions
Weezer Everything Will Be Alright in the End
Weezer OK Human
I don't care much about them since blue tbh, this one turned out pretty pleasant, its like a symphonic weezer, so weird but cool. I was ready to 3.5 it, but then my little one starts dancing every time I put it on. Edit - ssshhh she's sleeping now, 3.5 it is.
Wheel (FIN) Resident Human
Ei wait! Why are these guys ripping off Soen for ripping off Tool? EHEH Legit tracks nonetheless, specially Movement and T/track
Windhand Windhand
Windhand Soma
Winterfylleth The Dark Hereafter
Wobbler From Silence to Somewhere
Wode Burn in Many Mirrors
Wormed Exodromos
Wormrot Abuse
Wormrot Dirge
Worry Wisdom Through Shame
Pretty good smashing debut, with some moments of tenderness. DoomSludge with HXC reminiscences.
WRVTH No Rising Sun
Interesting outfit...you must check if you're looking for new sounds in metal. A tad unmemorable and too watered vocals lowered my rating a bit. Great stuff though.
Xanthochroid Of Erthe and Axen: Act I
Xenobiotic Mordrake
Definitely this started to grow after second spin. The album has its highlights, such as Inverted, Saphris, Grieving the Loss of Self and T/tracks. Overall the drumwork is damn great and the techdeath aspects slay.
Yashira Shrine
This is a great approach on Remission (Mastodon) riffing in a more post output.
Yautja Songs of Descent
Great mix of sludge, grind and rock&roll...though a bit unmemorable, they sound even better live - check audiotree live sessions. Recd tracks - tar and blindness; Path to ground; a crawl
Year of No Light Consolamentum
Yes Close to the Edge
Younger Brother A Flock of Bleeps
Yuri Gagarin The Outskirts of Reality
Great drums...I'm all in for the relentless opener and the floydishstoner closer.
Yussef Kamaal Black Focus
Good boiler room music. Great drum&base drummer. The bassist is awesome and its not even yussef neither Kamaal.
Zao Liberate Te Ex Inferis
Zapruder Straight From The Horse's Mouth
[F.e.v.e.r.] Iconflict

3.0 good
...and Oceans Cosmic World Mother
One of Light, One of Soil rules. I wish the album followed that lower tone more often, it would give it a nice balance... other wise, and although the industrial aspects fit nice here and there, I feel a little too one sided and annoying high/screechy.I really dig the closer too, don't ask me why X)
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead X: The Godless Void and Other Stories
After the The Opening Crescendo (lol - its really the title), the first proper track is really rbad. For me this starts to heat up somewhere in the middle (Children of the Sky maybe?) and ends rup pretty ok. It's somewhat a dated sound but some prog aspects keeps it interesting and scratch rsomewhat of an old (late 90's) alt rock's hitch...if you have one.
Aborted Strychnine.213
Its almost as if Aborted went Slipknot at times. Not a bad take...maybe a more poppish/melodic ressay. Its great on its own, not to be compared with other releases from them tbqh.

uuuhhh...they're great...something here is really boring/ samey...specially comparing with sophomore's brilliant prog songwriting. But I'm not thrash guy, so that's why..

hum...maybe a 3.5 but somewhat this sounds irrelevant to me, only time will tell. I still owe this

How to sing out of tune but with sentiment makes good music. Storms of Mars is one awesome track.

Burzum Thulêan Mysteries
Some songs are too short...ambient on some are very cool tho...other seemed too long...can't pass the idea this is an album of demos. Cool folk soundtrack, that's all folks.
Bush The Science of Things
Cabal (DK) Mark Of Rot
Caelestra Black Widow Nebula
The mix really brings this down imo...vocals sound really phoned and often robotic f.e. The
gorgeous moments are beyond gorgeous though, as the cover suggests.
Candiria While They Were Sleeping
cool album...they could be a little less "palm muted" and a little more "open chorded" in order to provide an heavier feeling...also the distortion of the guitars are really shy...that's why this is not as 3.5 for me
Capitao Fausto A Invenção do Dia Claro
Car Seat Headrest Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
Caravan Palace Robot Face
Cave In Final Transmission
Some tracks here are way too short...like samples of what they could ve been (makes sense they're rpractically demos recorded in a single take, before Caleb's death). Props for tracks like Night rCrawler and Lanterna though.
Charles Bronson Youth Attack!
I really don't know what to do with this yet. It's a pretty good mainstream metal album, despite a few missteps (it could go faster too).
Children of Bodom Hatebreeder
this one is very technical. I just can't stand the general folksy vibe so, for my personal taste, this gets better after Wrath Within.
Children of the Anachronistic Dynasty Fingernails
Interesting album. Stream it here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA2032DAE214A52DE

live and completely different, also with maybe the first tool's sober sketch:
Circa Survive The Amulet
Circle Terminal
Clawfinger Deaf Dumb Blind
My issue with this album is in fact the lyrics...really childish or like a first grade English class. That said there's cool beats and riffs - Recd tracks - The Truth; Sad to see your Sorrow
Clever Girl No Drum And Bass in the Jazz Room
Cloudkicker Solitude
Code Orange The Hurt Will Go On

Cookin Soul Doom Xmas
Corrupt Moral Altar Eunoia
Crypt Sermon The Ruins of Fading Light
CZARFACE and MF DOOM Czarface Meets Metal Face
Dark Fortress Venereal Dawn
This has a very atmospheric prog approach...everything is pretty much unmemorable and washed out in songwriting (specially on first half), still the called atmosphere is very well achieved and it has some sweet passages. Tracks like Odem and Luciform gives some shape on a songwriting level - unlike others, that are complete draggers - 3.2.
Dark Tranquillity Moment
Darkest Hour Godless Prophets and The Migrant Flora
Daughters Daughters
so with these guys I actually understood that Grind music goes from hardcore punk, metal, anarco-punk, noise rock e rock industrial. This is from the noisemusic anarco-punk genres. Is short (27 minutes) so its a pretty intense experience which feels longer than its actual length...because of the abuse of repetition and the tracks progress only slightly and only in terms of intensity too often. Good stuff but does little for me.
Deafheaven Ordinary Corrupt Human Love
Defeated Sanity The Sanguinary Impetus
I loved the technicality and the sound of all
instruments, but it just felt like free jazz.
Upon an impressed first listen I gave the 4,
the subsequent listens I found myself wanting
to like this more than I actually do...
Deftones Black Stallion
Devil Sold His Soul Blessed & Cursed
Disembodied Diablerie
Dodheimsgard Kronet Til Konge
This could be a great debut, unfortunately is very long for such a one sided piece and only serves
one purpose, and its not memorability. Good DTish stuff though, with some melodic tremolo passages
here and there.
Donny Benet Mr. Experience
LMAO...the music is completely freezed in time, as the cover suggests. I like this character! It has a lot of love to give. This album is consistently good, a little too long...as if "we got the point dude".

Would prob rate this way higher if I was at the actual theater watching actors perform. Cool wacky experience nonetheless, with not much to get back to. Also cool to think so outside the box like this. Big props for that cover art. If you put it on you can tell how hard it is to find a similar artist XD. The metal genre tag is also debatable.

Pretty sweet atmosphere on this...another band from the everlasting metalcore I can enjoy for
sure. They sure dig experimenting, and as result you have these ambiance tracks towards the end,
making the pace die a bit.
Logic Young Sinatra IV
The boy can rap. The boy can sing. The boy is too "good boy" though. He rely too much on the oldschool beat though...awesome Wu Tang track though...YSIV relys too much on life's a bitch Nas track...varied quality work though Fave tracks - WU TANG FOREVER and 100 Miles and running

Is cool to get a track from Chester in 2019.
Pretty standard metal hardrock songwriting, a
risk LOG runs constantly as well. Great guitar
and a vocal feature on each track makes this
like a gatering of artists having fun. Zero
atmosphere and genre shifting also doesn't
help. Recd tracks - Cross off; Blur; The truth
is dead.

with atmosphere and the abrasiveness vs beauty. A bit too zzz tho
Moby More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse
Monolord Rust

This looked like a mash up deconstruction of many different "generic" music. Not sure if it sticks but despite this its so technical that it gets pretty cool. Is just me or anyone else wanted stuff like Crux on this?
Moullinex Hypersex

Nothing from their debut to hold on here. Did little on me but I 3 it cause I miss clubbin...
Mr. Bungle Disco Volante
The first release was super disturbing (like I was actually inside the head of that fucked up
clown), this one unfortunately seemed interesting on experimentation and textures exploration, but
on other hand seems like some band's endless hidden track from late 90's.

Paradise Lost Medusa
Paradise Lost Obsidian
The album/ songs are very well done, but as predictable as flawless in the end...something on these guys turn me off, still a nice listen and a step ahead from Medusa. I specially dug the last third. For me personally there's something very hard rock in the songwriting that drags me down...again personally, I much more enjoy the latest Katatonia, or last year's Swallow the Sun..
Pentagram Last Rites
Periphery Periphery IV: Hail Stan
This album promises so much on those first 3 tracks and then those other tracks clearly trying to reach a broader yet dumber audience. Its a pretty commercial unhearted decision, specially once you see zero effort in songwriting...nothing to say about technical aspects...and the dude has great vocals. Recd track - Reptile
Perturbator New Model

Meshuggaish track Dreaming Black Clockwork (clockwork lol), MORE? and maybe the closer are prob the best ones here. I get they are trying to make a more dynamic sound to a stiff genre, it's just not the way to do it. If its a grower shout back to me. tks

Added Glassjaw tag cause is pretty obvious. Too far from Tdep for the listener, but I get it cause of "Patton's stuff". Again for the listener is sometimes more Converge and Botch than actually Deftones (but maybe in the slower sexier parts). Good interesting job

honestly this one would win if they had more melodic vocals (like on the last 2 tracks). Though good, I found it a bit too much unmemorable tbh.

Everything is very well done, although also a bit inoffensive/ sterile.
This Mortal Coil Filigree & Shadow

Interesting Great Falls bass driven track with a too short and not that interesting Thou track...another Thou split making me acknowledging another band such as Great Falls

This is good stuff, still programmed drums too much at front here. Somehow this just don't live up to debut's fierce, careful work and hooks.
Toxik Attack Assassinos em Série
Portuguese OldSchool Thrash Metal band. This has some damn original vocals sang in Portuguese.
Some say its addictive, I personally think its really good speed thrash but with laughing content
regarding old school DM themes. So it speaks about death but in parody joyful way. Recd Track -

Trees of Eternity Hour Of The Nightingale
Tuber Desert Overcrowded
Type O Negative The Origin of the Feces
ahahahahahahah good joke. YOU SUCK YOU SUCK YOU SUCK!
Ulver Flowers of Evil
Definitely feels like the B side of Assassination. This time the songs lean even more into that (Depeche Modish) song formula and less into those electronic psy progressions you catch on Assassination that provides the desired depth.
Un The Tomb of All Things
Good but a bit dragging regular doom record. Beautiful closer though.
Universal Order of Armageddon The Switch Is Down
Unyielding Love The Sweat of Augury
Vessel Queen of Golden Dogs
Good experimental electronic work but with a classic tone, features and instrumentation.
Void Rot Descending Pillars
Amazing atmosphere...as to the rest is ultimately unimaginative....
Voivod The Outer Limits
this is good stuff but didn't made much for me, sometimes too "proggy grunge" and I'm not sure if it fits. Some parts of the music itself I found just ugly...that said, there is much talent and many cool parts and ideas all-round. fave here - Le Pont Noir.

Wear Your Wounds WYW
Weedpecker III
Chill stoner progressive rock for me and my weed friends. Fave track - Embrace
Weezer Pinkerton
White Stones Dancing Into Oblivion
This is still good but they lost the rock and psy touch imo. Its way more dm centered. While prod values are cool and remain revivalist is def way less hypnotic riffingwise, something I really valued on Kuarahy. This would benefit with some shinier prod but on other hand the id set on Kuarahy would be totally lost as well.
Wilderun Veil of Imagination
Too Disney Townsend for my taste, yet its cool those a la BWP riffs and leads. Also
is very cool that there are people who fall in love for this. This kind of music is
needed. The opener would make my day.r

Belzebubs Pantheon of the Nightside Gods
Billie Eilish When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
After checking the track six feet under, can't say this wasn't a big disappointment, although I can't say I don't have radio fun with "bad guy" either (guilty). I wasn't expecting a Britney Spears 2.0 at all :/ and what dark? where?
Bjork Utopia
Black Crown Initiate Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape
How does something that looks initially so good wears off sooo quickly?
Blood Cultures Happy Birthday
Bloody Hammers Songs Of Unspeakable Terror
Honestly, this band seems to have everything except the talent (beyond the average). Some cool ideas aside, pulling off Weezer vibes and Green Day Riffs to the goth vibe they try to achieve here is really off-putting, making them fall in the radio rock arena, and they sure are no Misfits. Vocals are frankly meh. Love the damn cover art on all albums tho.

Devin Townsend Empath
Metal and Disney are definitely not compatible, although I think everyone should listen and acknowledge this man's talent at least once in their life. I started today. I know this could never be considered average but here's a 2.5 in amusement and laughter. Recd Track - Hear Me
diSEMBOWELMENT Mourning September (Demo)
This EP clearly shows these dudes needed (medical) help.
edIT Certified Air Raid Material
Editors Violence
Every Time I Die Last Night in Town
Eyehategod A History Of Nomadic Behavior
okay, the album is Universally bad. Not even entitled to a "I don't get it/ not for me". At least and (un)fortunately he's clean.
Fallujah The Flesh Prevails
This blows a bit and production could be warmer...talented folks...exquisite atmosphere.
Foo Fighters Sonic Highways
Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold
Grave Pleasures Motherblood
Hail the Sun Secret Wars
Hatebreed Weight of the False Self
Heaven Shall Burn Of Truth and Sacrifice
...they are the best at doing a formulaic stiff genre (don't know why though, cause its such a resourceful genre), even more straight than straight thrash can be...uff...the gal is maybe hot, not my type of gal...and if that was not enough on me...its a double damn disc...veeeery tiring. This is about war, and I'm at war getting to the end of it. Apparently they are tired too, so decided to play some Ramstein instead and to vary a bit on wirting on disc 2.
Hoobastank The Reason
Incubus (USA-CA) 8
Iotunn Access All Worlds
Jason Becker Triumphant Hearts
Judas Priest Firepower
Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
I went on this cause I was enjoying Lamar and got intrigued with the album title, cover and AVG...well its dry powder stuff...with selling partnerships and feats...many tracks are very chorus driven.
Lantlos Wildhund
Got some Hum's latest vibes (which could be awesome). Also some Ghengis Trons's latest stuff, but with vocals, or Great Dismal from Nothing, but somewhat worse than all these. Its cool they explore new territory but it did nothing on me. Track Vertigo is pre good tho.
Last Chance to Reason Level 3
Light the Torch Revival
Mad Masks Mad Masks
Marilyn Manson Heaven Upside Down
Metallica Hardwired... to Self-Destruct
Monster Magnet Μindfucker
Muse The 2nd Law
Mystic Prophecy Metal Division
Curse of the Slayer is a great song...I'd add that Die With The Hammer is another song that match my taste. The album hits perfect on songwriting for any Power Heavy Metal fan.
Nervosa Perpetual Chaos
Night Verses Lift Your Existence
How many lyric clich?s and lazy melodic vocals can you throw in one album? Songwriting ain't all bad tho
of Montreal White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood
One Minute Silence Buy Now...Saved Later
Origami Angel Somewhere City
With a song or two about bullying and being bullied...naive sounding, yet with some nice and fun jams in techmetal lol much as Hail The Sun sounding. Songwriting is ok, the rate is me not them...
Pearl Jam Gigaton
This is a good Bruce Springsteen album...oh wait...well PJ is happy and healthy for music's sake.
Perfume Genius Set My Heart On Fire Immediately
a few very good songs...overall the album is a snoozer...
Plini Impulse Voices
Psychotic Waltz The God-Shaped Void
I like everything...yet nothing on here...except the badass flute on Pull the String...but I'm sure its a musical joke on here X) good production, well executed, well sang (even though a bit cheesy) and even well written, but the pact they seem to made to do not riff fast hurts my butt...cause it ain't even doom...it's a slow paced hard rock and its not for me. This is the living proof psychotic differs from psychedelic, as the tags firstly suggested...

Slipknot All Hope Is Gone
Sufjan Stevens The Ascension
Sufjan Stevens Convocations
We get it. you re great at grieving.
Talanas The Waspkeeper
I found this a really lame kind of metal. Vocals are really unappealing and the progression of the
songs doesn't make it up...everything is too standart (?) zero soul on this...the most commercial
version of Akercocke you could imagine. The good instrumentation doesn't keep it from being
average on my taste.
The Erkonauts I Shall Forgive
The Hu The Gereg
The Menzingers After the Party
The Republic of Wolves shrine
The Smashing Pumpkins Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1
Good but way too much Corgan centered poprock album and relying too much on the band's classics
Theo Katzman Heartbreak Hits
There Will Be Fireworks The Dark, Dark Bright
I always prefer a wrecked heart full of hope
over these pink hearts full of expectations.
Youngsters music that deserves my respect.
Just ain't for me...

Brand New Science Fiction
This album has 12 radio singles...gotta give them that
Charli XCX How I'm Feeling Now
Clarence Clarity THINK: PEACE
Bunch of loose ideas...retro vibe instead of actually experimental or new...as if Radiohead were rworking for Justin Timberlake
Counterparts You're Not You Anymore
Creeper Eternity, In Your Arms
Electric Wizard Wizard Bloody Wizard
Emery Eve
this music is very american christian. good production and well played. There's prob 1/2 cool songs but they've 15... Everything is so normal and average musically, that I can't even finish a 2nd listen.

oh my god....this is getting so lame, and shallow, and cheesy! its just bad...and im sad..r
Metallica St. Anger
Muse Drones
Muse Simulation Theory
I gave this a 2nd chance...Some tracks are actually listenable in that rpop/commercial concept they're trying to achieve...there's still a bunch of other annoying tracks rhere that makes this a poor work. This late 90's synth revivalism comes in fact a bit late (I ractually dug when QOTSA made it on their last release)...maybe its my issue but sometimes this rlooks like the soundtrack of some dad's 90's VHS futuristic porn.. Weird band nowadays....I don't rsee where they want to go with this...I did loved Muse. Favorite track: Blockades
Northlane Mesmer
Polaris (AUS) The Death of Me
Hypermania was cool...couldn't finish this, though...r.
Ra Intercorrupted
Nice guitar sound, the vocalist has a very good sound and range (amazing actually). There's some severe early Bieber cuts here that keeps me from digging this at mid 30's.
Rings of Saturn Ultu Ulla
Run the Jewels RTJ4
I hate these slutty beats. Just here to follow the debate.
Spanish Love Songs Brave Faces Everyone
For someone that listens to pretty much one sided stuff, this is very one sided, I honestly felt I
was listening to the same song, the same mood, the same 3 notes in different songs...awful
experience overall...there's practically nothing on this genre (emo) that I can see above average
music. I try to peak to see what's hype about and end up always disappointed.
