Also, I see how you overlooked some albums on your list. I forgot about Ravencult’s ~Morbid Blood~. What a ripping, tar-hearted riff fest that album is! Mmmm. Delicious.

Yeah… Mamaleek, Portrait, In Solitude, and, my favorite of the year so far… Lifelover’s ~Sjukdom~. Nice list… several I will have to look in to for the first time… several more I’ll need to give a second chance. For whatever reason, despite my love for AmRep / Touch and Go noisy stuff from the 80s / 90s (Big Black, Jesus Lizard, you know… the usual suspects), I can’t get in to this new wave of blackened noise / post-punk-tinged bleakness. I like (and in some cases LOVE) the ingredients, but I can’t crave the resultant dish (Tombs, KEN Mode, etc). Maybe I should keep eating it…? IDK. I will say that as a fan of both metal and indie rock, metal is kicking indie’s emasculated, pansy ass this year (I felt last year was the opposite story).

I haven’t laughed that hard all day. Go buy yourself something nice.

Seems major-key Krallice-y to me. And a bit more percussive given the 3rd minutes Morse code section. Interest piqued…

Best list I’ve read this year. I was eagerly awaiting it and, alas, it didn’t disappoint. Perhaps because it overlapped with mine so much! I’ll check out the bands that we didn’t share.

This album came out of nowhere to takeover my life for a good while. Brandon… do you think that it is the Repugnant / In Solitude crew like I’ve been reading elsewhere?
