5.0 classic
Altar of Plagues Teethed Glory and Injury
I may be pulling the trigger here a touch early, but this is your AOTY. It swirls, transcends, grabs, pulls, grows and takes a hold on the darkest parts of your emotions. It's a change from previous releases in more than a couple of ways. Track length suits a better all rounded sense and they have dropped the black metal intensity opting for a smoother post/experimental sound.
Darkthrone The Underground Resistance
Who could fault Darkthone for doing what they do? Certainly there is nothing surprising going on here, but that's okay we don't need surprises. Darkthrone write the music they want to write.

Trvth Black Horse Plague
An opus of a record, moving from free flowing prog, to the dankest of black metal growls. Yes, the run time is huge, but how could you not grace such a massive record without the time needed to allow for full expression? Trvth is a modern take at 70s inspired movements shaped with precision and crafted down to the "tee". The album is beauty rolled, twisted transcending the norm. rfree download -

Aevangelist Omen Ex Simulacra
Agalloch The Mantle
Agalloch Marrow of the Spirit
Agrimonia Awaken
Alkaloid Liquid Anatomy
A definite shift in sound from these tyrants of death. The progressive elements are pushing to the fore-front hard. Liquid Anatomy is as lucid and clear as it can be while staying true to their swirling brand of death metal. Production is top-notch and clear without robbing the record of atmosphere. The Cthulhu still runs strong for this HP Lovecraft loving band.

Appalachian Winter I Become The Frozen Land

Album is a tital wave, before gently bobbing waters. It's majestic and eerie. Top of the genre without having a fifty minute track.

Death/Doom pulsating in a mechanical (dare I say) quasi-Portal style. The production only builds on the tensile riffing and spiraling instrumentation.

Eluveitie Helvetios
Eluveitie Origins
With more staying power than the previous releases it's clear that Eluveitie have a lot more to offer until their pool of talent runs dry. Origins picks up where Helvetios left off, bombastic rhthms and constant melodies interplay with the group's harsh growls. It's catchy, it's infectious - - a ride from start to finish. If there are any flaws to be found, it's in the band's ability to be completely comfortable with their sound.
Elysian Blaze Blood Geometry
Elysian Blaze's 2012 record resonates with some of the better acts of the genre. Rung out chords and a raw-'er' mix puch through well. Pick up for some Aust. doom along the lines of Noctis etc.

Hashshashin nihsahshsaH (adj​.​)
This is a new level of quality for this Sydney based group bringing so many elements together in the best possible way.
Hela Broken Cross
Hexis Abalam
Hooded Menace Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed
Hope Drone Hope Drone
Australia's Hope Drone marks an excellent entry into the world of hybrid post-black metal. It's gritty, clean transcending the typical "pretty" sounds peppered in the genre. It's not for light listening, these four tracks were made with intent, and intent is surely given.

Meshuggah Koloss
Monolithe Monolithe III
Monolithe Monolithe Zero
Moonshade Sun Dethroned
Sun Dethroned manages to Amon Amarth hard. Infectiously catchy and misses most of the cheesiness that would otherwise plague an album like this.
Moonsorrow Jumalten aika
Mouth Of The Architect Quietly
Mouth Of The Architect Path of Eight
Path Of Eight continues to surprise on each track. This album is quickly becoming one of my favourites for the year.
Mutiny Within Mutiny Within
Mutiny Within Synchronicity
After a three year wait, this does not dissapoint. The album is a complete package, and comes together the strongest the band has produced so far.
Nails Abandon All Life
Got seventeen minutes? Of course you do. Abandon All Life is the sultry hard-hitting sonic onslaught of oppressive heaviness. Keep in mind that short was never meant to be ?sweet? on Nail?s sophomore ?full-length?. From top to bottom (no matter how short that may be) Abandon All Life ensures the utmost of intensity highlighting the gift of Todd Jones behind the microphone. A fury rarely seen and upheld over the course of ear-splitting riffs and semi-thundering drum patterns gives life to a release over before it can be fully processed. See ?In Exodus? for proof that ?heavy metal? is real and relatable in today?s music industry. There?s no remorse, no guilt, no waiting period or white flag signalling the retreat. Nails have come to place their boot on the neck of the hardcore genre, tying in some truly ferocious chops along the way.

Enthroned Sovereigns
A change up in members doesn't shake the foundations of Enthroned's music. At the same time, there's no 'real' disappointment as the new blood holds pace with the band's back catalog. 'Sovereigns' is another bombastic slab of black metal with a modern infusion. It's dynamic and shifts enough to maintain interest.

The technicality's still here, the pace is maintained and the symphonic is as prominent as ever. It's not perfect, this combination will always clash heads but it seems that Fleshgod Apocalypse are finally putting the two together in a manageable and interesting form. The album does what it needs to and well, but the almost fifty-five minutes of symphonic cliches tied over a melodic tech-death instrumental effort does tire the listener. It's got room to grow, just not a lot.

Bloodstone and Diamonds brings back accessible track times with only a mere couple extending on the seven minute mark. Flynn's vocals aren't any surprise, nor is the new inclusion on bass. Some stand-outs include: Sail Into The Black, In Comes The Flood and Imaginal Cells.

A quality release, Osdm comes at a price of mediocrity and tgankfully Drawn and Quatered sail quite over the top. Pounding riff lines and constant drum parts come together but unfortunately this album prevents itself from being the ultimate death by sticking to a typical formula. Its not really a negative but its far from a positive.

Album leaks and Sput's userbase goes wild. Sure enough Ghost's second release is a steady beast but it just like the Archille's heel, it doesn't have the same impact as the debut. Tracks like Secular Haze, Year Zero (the album's singles) are standouts but the band did everything they needed to on the first release. Make no mistake, the album will Satan your socks off, but it will tickle your feet as it does so.

Light the Torch The Beauty of Destruction
Despite the ever-growing hype train from the ashes of former Killswitch Engage frontman, Howard Jones and the other various artists joining on this new moniker, The Beauty Of Destruction leaves something to be desired. Devil You Know releases 47 minutes of passable metalcore filled to the brim with the nuances that made Jones' stint with KsE so successful. The Beauty Of Destruction is formulaic, but delivers everything it was meant to. 'For The Dead And Broken' stands as a distinguishable highlight.

Quality song writing just took a back seat. All the basic elements are there including an incredibly unessacary amount of guitar wankery. It's Megadeth at its simplist, and bland form. It works but is far from exciting. 'Endgame' showed something of the right direction, however this strays far from that path.

It's hard to find thoughts that cohere on any level with Sputnik's elitism. .5 The Gray Chapter is not the album it was hyped up to be, after a six year break, but it's far from being a 'bad' release. Slipknot teeters on the same formula with new blood and the surprising "Killpop" actually highlights the new record.
