Albums of the year!

Posted on December 24th, 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 like no one else. Raised their game again.

5. Indian Wells - 'Pause’ (Bad Panda Records)
Stunning, slow-burn electronica where each song unfolds beautiful. Really evocative stuff that paints pictures in my head.

6. Maruta - 'Remain Dystopian’ (Relapse)
Like a more death-metal leaning Discordance Axis. Unfathomable yet paradoxically catchy riffing.

7. Misþyrming - 'Söngvar elds og óreiðu’ (Terratur Possessions, Fallen Empire Records, Vánagandr)
The best black metal record this year. Fittingly, from Iceland.

8. Oblivionized - 'Life Is A Struggle, Give Up’ (Secret Law Records)
A British band standing toe-to-toe with any Pig Destroyer record, mindblowing.

9. Fórn
'Weltschmerz' (+ split 7" with Yautja, both on Gilead Media)
My favourite modern doom band just keep proving themselves over and over....

10. Xibalba - 'Tierra Y Libertad' (Southern Lord)
MOSH EVERYTHING
