Distant Haze by Sivyj Yar is probably my song of the year, there’s just so much going on and it’s so gorgeous.

I’m supposed to laugh at how ridiculous this is, right?

If you reverse Rolling Stone’s list, Yob is the album of the year! Which, I think they totally deserve. I’m more on the fence about Pallbearer. It’s a good record for sure and I recognize what it’s done for metal recently, but something about it just doesn’t connect about for me.

This list has a lot of good metal. A couple things I need to check out (Nux Vomica). That Horrendous album didn’t do much for me, though. I do know that Primordial just came out, but I think that record is fantastic and will probably end up on my best of list. I’d also include Winterfylleth, Mare Cognitum, and Tombs. And an honorable mention to Mantar.

Stereogum turned you on to Taylor Swift?

This album is absolutely fantastic. So glad to see some metal make its way here… Not to mention see you write about it on the same day that you guys post Black Market. I’m a kid in a really fucking scary candy store.

Tom DeLonge is Rubber Johnny.

Oh man, I remember getting confused by there name for 5 seconds. Such a good band, though.

Adam Pfahler runs their social media. He’s made several posts that indicate this such as his involvement in the band California and his running of Blackball Records.
