Albums of the year! 24 December 2015

Here's a selection of our albums of the year by me and a bunch of our bands. Also have a playlist of some of my favourite songs of the year (quite different to album selections!) - https://open.spotify.com/…/…/playlist/5MSu9nIQ4AfVj03jsWQQkQ

In no order apart from no.1......

Alex (Holy Roar)
1. Goatsnake - ‘Black Age Blues’ (Southern Lord)
Super uplifting, fun, but with the thickest best riffs and catchiest songs. Party stoner.

2. Elder - 'Lore’ (Stickman Records)
Untouchable prog/stoner, everything about this is perfect.

3. Blanck Mass - 'Dumb Flesh’ (Sacred Bones)
Side project of Ben Fuck Buttons comes into focus on 2nd LP and is better than any Fuck Buttons album.

4. HEALTH - 'Death Magic’ (Loma Vista Recordings)
Starting to sound a bit Depeche Mode, whilst still sounding...

On the twelfthh day of Christmosh, Holy Roar did give to me.... 21 December 2015

Down I Go
'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You'
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

After a bizarre and convoluted gestation, that at this stage has been well-documented, it was a pleasure and honour to release the new (and best) album by Down I Go. They were the band that gave my old band our first gig, and I knew Alan from DIG via his time in the awesome Johnny Truant (R.I.P). So this was a no-brainer. If you haven't come...

Helpless
S/T
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

I've been friends with Rusty from Helpless for many years and really respected what he did with BROTHERHOOD OF THE LAKE. He played me rehearsal room demos of Helpless earlier this year and I knew this band would be something I would be into. I promptly kind of forgot about them (I was busy yadda yada etc excuses) until I had to do a double take hearing them on the ever-awesome Read More

Eulogy

'Eternal Worth'
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

As far as i'm concerned this was the sleeper-slammer EP of 2015. From the ashes of Stallone came the brutal, seething Eulogy. If Shai Hulud were British and dabbled in The Dillinger Escape Plan acrobatics and Oceansize-style atmospherics, then you might be close to a description of the best tech-hardcore EP of the year. If this passed...

SVALBARD (Svalbarduk)
'One Day All This Will End'
....for free (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

Having been the 'UK's Most Promising' for a couple of years through a litany of EP's and splits, it was more than a bit satisfying to see Svalbard deliver an album even better than everyone expected. If you like real rock music, that sounds like it was made by humans with emotions then you need to listen to this album. As well as Very Good Album, Svalbard played Read More

PARISO
'Pariso'
....for free (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

Amongst all the great albums we've been a part of this year, this release was somewhat sad/bittersweet for me. Pariso did, of course, split up this year - with their final gig being in September. This release (in conjunction...
