Didn’t See that Coming
Here it is! The moment you have all (probably) been waiting for! Go listen to our choices and feel free to talk with us about them in the comments.
We decided to a get a jump on our regular January listening. Instead of picking some random stuff to review, we looked at some year-end lists and picked some albums we missed from earlier this year. Will any change our own pending year-end lists? Maybe…
Spirit Adrift – Divided by Darkness (20 Buck Spin)
Devin Townsend – Empath (Inside Out)
Haunt – If Icarus Could Fly (Shadow Kingdom)
This Is Important
Why is this important, you ask? Well, mostly because we cover a few albums that may affect our upcoming year-end lists. Also, one of these albums just has a heavy, significant message to the world. Oh, and maybe that’s just an attention-grabbing title.
Cattle Decapitation – Death Atlas (Metal Blade)
Blood Incantation – Hidden History Of The Human Race (Dark Descent)
Sentient Horror – Morbid Realms (Redefining Darkness)
Forget Me Not
The problem we had for some of the artists this week is not in their musicianship, but their ability to make us remember what the hell just happened. If you can’t handle that, then out already-crappy memories sure as hell aren’t going to remember their albums a year or more from now. Let us know in the comments (or social media) if you agree with our assessments!
Nile – Vile Nilotic Rites (Nuclear Blast)
Cloak – The Burning Dawn (Season of Mist)
Sunless Rise – Ultimacy
