Cultes Des Ghoules - Henbane.

One of my favourites for this year definitely. DRIPPING with atmosphere.


One of those records which makes me really want to orchestrate some kind of fun, black metal worshipping cult, with esoteric paraphernalia all over the place.

NP: Candlemass - Solitude

Every time I listen to this record, the more epic and beautiful it seems to become.

The Chasm - Remains of the Covenant

Nothing to say that I haven't already said about this band. Simply great death metal.

King Diamond - Abigail

Their best album by far, in contrast to the sequel which is their absolute worst, also by far.

'Conspiracy' and 'The Eye' want a word with you.

Deceased... - In the Laboratory of Joyous Gloom

Deceased's last album may well be my second-favorite of theirs, after 'As the Weird Travel On'. Never a dull moment with this band.

Sabbat - Blood for the Blood God (the single)

Raw thrash about the Ruinous Powers. Nerdy as hell, and pretty fucking awesome.

Sunrise - Trust Your Soul

So glad I finally have a version of this album playable all the way through via iPod. So damn good. Stands right up with the best power metal of the late 2000s.

The Chasm - Channeling the Bleeding Over the Dream's Remains

This band just won't quit. I'm almost getting tired of how great they are.

Paradise Lost - Mercy

Everything about this song is awesome. Another one of those tunes that are impossibly nostalgic because practically no one else in the state of Pennsylvania knows who they are, yet somehow it takes me back.

Auspex "Resolutio"

Haven't dusted this off in a long time. This band has more in common with the Japanese power metal bands I've been listening to lately than any Euro power metal band, IMO.

Vektor - Tetrastructural Minds

Lots of great riffs and plenty of aggressive energy. Here's to hoping they release a third album sometime soon.

Riot - Should I Run

I swear, Mike DiMeo sounds almost exactly like Russell Allen on this album, and it gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Listening for the first time to Heretic Cult Redeemer. Kinda enjoyable, but also pretty forgettable at first glance. Anti-climactic songstructure and the album flow is atrocious. Makes me wish I was listening to Void Meditation Cult. Maybe I'll just have to give it a few more listens, but right now I don't feel terribly motivated to do so.
Anyone else have an opinion on HCR?

Crypt Lurker - Baneful Magic, Death Worship and Necromancy Rites Archaic

After some considerable underground hype, this has been a very disappointing listen for me. Very unadventurous Doom

Busy listening to comeback albums.

Carcass - Surgical Steel
Didn't mind it, but each song seems modeled after very discrete points in the band's past. Songwriting wise it doesn't feel like an album with a unified sound or purpose. If you take some of the better songs outside of the context of the album though they are pretty cool, but nothing that you couldn't get from one of the many other Carcass-worship bands in existence.

Gorguts - Colored Sands
The more I listen to it the more I love it. This is, for my money, the best extreme metal "comeback" album by a very large margin. Contrasting this with my complaints about Surgical Steel, the songwriting on this album is so polished without being compromising or boring, and the entire band's sound takes a giant step forward from FWTH (though FWTH took a sidestep from Obscura). A lot of bands who've returned to the scene with new albums often just do what is safe and reiterate what they've done in the past (and in the case of bands like Autopsy, I think that's pretty enjoyable), but I find CS is totally worthwhile on its own. Would be a great album in 2013 without the Gorguts name behind it.

Amen, brother.

Enforcer - Midnight Vice, off Diamonds

I'm fairly convinced that these dudes are in possession of a time machine.

Cobalt - Arsonry

First day back at Uni. There's little doubt in my mind that Meta-ethics with delightfully fucked-up black metal is vastly better than Meta-ethics without it.

Sloppy but effective thrash.

I was just saying that because Enforcer sound remarkably old school. I hadn't listened to them until now, and I'm not completely sold on them, but damn if they don't get the style down to a T.

Fates Warning - The Road Goes on Forever

I can't think of anything else but tranquility while listening to this. Excellent stuff, not to mention it's also fitting for the upcoming cooler days due to autumn coming up.

Triosphere "The Road Less Travelled"

I've barely played this one for some reason, time to fix that. I sure played "Onwards" a lot several years ago.

Seasons of the Wolf - Misty Shades of Green

Good, keyboard-heavy metal. I'd guess their rather black-metal-ish logo and name are what's keeping people from checking them out. It's very misleading.

Demilich - When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water, off Nespithe

I've never been a guy who pays a lot of attention to drumming, but I've always dug the percussion in Nespithe. Easily some of the most fascinating drumming in all of death metal.

Absolutely amazing record. It's crushing, suffocating, and engulfing all in the best possible way!
