Stained Glass Revelations is great; the guitar playing is other-worldly. I was also wondering if/when you were gonna post on it. So torn between watching Negative Plane or Tragedy on May 30th.

Their show at MHOW was killer, though a couple more oldies would have been much appreciated. Will watch these clips when I get home!

Oh man, can't wait to hear this when I get home. Maybe it'll help jar me out of this Black Flag kick I've been on (not that it's a bad thing, by any means). The show last year was incredible, Altar of Plagues played with such passion and seemed so genuinely pissed.

Update: Inquisition album finally came in the mail yesterday (thanks snow). Alas, this album is un-fucking-believable. Cannot stop listening. Lovin' those bends...

December 30, 2010 on Haunting The Chapel’s Top 50 Albums Of 2010
Glad to see a Ramesses mention, even though it's not on the main list (Coffinworm too, but wheres the Howling Wind?). Lots of people seemed to ignore A Small Turn of Human Kindness, so it's good to see that as well. Loved these records: V, The Tenant, Marrow..., Summit, Invisible Mountain, All the Waters...., and Nucleus. Getting the Inquisition album in the mail next week; from what I've head so far I'm very excited. As far as next year goes, hopefully the new Pollution album will further put them on the map.

I was disappointed to see Unearthly Trance so low on the list. V was an incredible record and probably their best; it certainly deserved to be in the top 10, if not top 5. The Howling Wind also deserved to be on there somewhere- another crusher of an album. Coffinworm, Harvey Milk and Alcest could have displaced some trash. Stuff I'm glad they included: Ludicra, Castevet (though the vocals now grate on my nerves a little) Dawnbringer, Thou. And re: Agalloch, Marrow is a pretty amazing album (I'm still a little partial to Ashes, though.) I guess they're going to be hated on now that they're getting proper recognition, but that's just how the cookie crumbles.

Oops, I meant to post my comment to this thread. Honestly, I wish someone would tell me how Pitchfork ratings are decided upon, and why great metal albums are usually bilked out of the upper numbers. Anyway: cannot wait for this one.

I never understood that either. It seems to be an unwritten rule: metal bands cannot break 8.6 or receive BNM (unless it's Mastodon).

In light of listening to these tracks, Spiral Shadow definitely seems like it has real crossover potential. I could see hipsters and pseudo-metalheads rocking this, but who cares? Let 'em. It's catchy and has a serious (classic) indie influence to it, so that's inevitable. They're going to be derided and shit on for months for this one- but what band that reaches their level of popularity isn't? For the most part I like it, and hopefully it'll stick like Static Tensions did for me.

October 15, 2010 on Two More Reasons Kylesa’s Spiral Shadow Should Be Near The Top Of Your Year-End Metal List
Amazing album- so gritty, so intricate, so HEAVY. UT is far too underrated. One of the best metal bands on the planet, hands down.
