Abigail Williams Walk Beyond The Dark
I feel like this band has danced around greatness for a decade, always just shy of creating
something truly excellent. Here, Abigail Williams has finally put together something incredible.
Atmospheric and enormous without feeling bloated, Walk Beyond the Dark is consistently engaging
and remarkably diverse. I'm glad to see this band finally release the album I always knew
they had in them.
Acathexis Acathexis
pretty much top tier quality in terms of atmospheric bm. kind of a cross between what Fuath was going for and the song to song internal progression of bands like Der Weg and Ash Borer
Ad Nauseam Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
the ascending and descending dissonant scales in the title track are unbelievable. this
album has a way of consistently finding ways to reinvent the wheel of disharmony in new
and exciting ways, for nearly an entire hour

Second Son of R is probably my song of the year, Caro sounds absolutely unhinged in the climax. I don't usually enjoy that kind of indulgent, un-melodic style of just screaming, but it's well done here, which might be the most surprising thing of the album

Panopticon Autumn Eternal
Austin Lunn sounds refreshed on this release.
He may not have the anger or feeling of
dejection that drove the fury and brilliance
of Collapse, but he finally seems to have
found his
voice from other influences. This is as
collected as he's ever been, and it's a
remarkable thing to
behold. Expanding and experimenting has paid
off - Sleep to the Sound of the Waves Crashing
something he never would have done before, and
sounds like the song all of New Bermuda wished

Oh, and Autumn Eternal (the track) absolutely
fucking slays
Panzerfaust The Suns of Perdition - Chapter I: War, Horrid War

Porter Robinson Nurture
Absolutely the surprise of the year so far. Reminds me heavily of The Flashbulb in terms of both
variety and execution quality.

Porter has always been successful at huge, bombastic EDM - Nurture shows that he is just as good,
if not even better, at displaying a quieter, more contemplative style.
Proscription Conduit
chaotic, urgent, and anxious - a powerful death metal release that channels many influences to come away with a not-so-unique sound but an extremely chaotic and sinister one

yeah, this is really really fucking good. glad he finally released an album. one thing that stands out to me is that Danger seems to really excel when he turns the bpm up, but on this album there's really only 1 or 2 tracks that play like that. the rest is Danger exploring moodier, atmospheric sounds and trying on a fair number of hats, all of which (minus the atrocious 19:00) sound fantastic

Love it, of course. But everyone saw that coming.

It takes a lot to look at your past work and go "this is not good enough, I'm a lot better than
this", and for someone who puts as much of himself into his records as Lunn, these albums may not
necessarily hold the same value or connection for him that they previously did, but Lunn has still
meticulously gone back over these dark horses of his discography and completely reworked

Social Disservices especially sounds a lot different, since his recording situation for that
was so miserable. What was previously a muddled, incoherent, messy album now sounds born again,
newly sinister and haunting.

Once rough gems of an otherwise consistent and excellent discography (yes, even Kentucky), new
life has been breathed into these albums - they now sound a lot more cohesive, focused, and well-
rounded. If you didn't like these albums before, definitely give them a shot now.

Abilgail Williams strip back their sound a bit on this album, but what we're left with is a highly middle of the road black metal record. They may have been more cheesy and hate-able on previous releases, but in doing away with their symphonic elements over time, they have slowly become a totally unremarkable black metal band.
