SHXCXCHCXSH - SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs
I loved the previous album but I haven't listened to this one as much as I should have. However I saw them live this summer and it was incredible. Very intense and demanding, no beats but constant pressure, a total live remix of their "songs". I mean you could recognize some parts here and there but all reorganized in a different, challenging way.

Yeah it is different from the last one, their sound is constantly changing. I would love to see them live too. Hopefully one day they make it across the pond. I heard a cool 30 minute live clip on soundcloud from a gig they did recently that sounded amazing.

Really good year for metal.

AOTY is a two-way tie between:
  • Blood Incantation - Starspawn
  • Cultes Des Ghoules - Coven, or Evil Ways Instead of Love
Best of the year in no particular order:
  • Urfaust - Empty Space Mediation
  • Panphage - Drengskapr
  • Inquisition- Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith
  • Recluse - Stillbirth in Bethlehem
  • Howls of Ebb - Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows
  • Void Meditation Cult - Utter the Tongue of the Dead
  • Urzeit - Anmoshka
  • Forgotten Spell - Epiphaneia Phosphorus (Angel, God or Insanity)
  • White Medal - Lyke Wake
Honorable mentions:
  • Panphage / thul - Ginnheilagr (only because it's really just 3 Panphage songs)
  • Panphage - Genom Konst & Krig (released this year, but a compilation of his first 5 releases, so not really a new album)
  • Necromantic Worship - The Calling...
  • DsO - Synarchy of Molten Bones
  • Dead Congregation - Sombre Doom
  • Demon Bitch - Hellfriends
I haven't really listened to much electronic music this year. Autechre's elseq was impressive as expected, but I don't find myself really going back to it.
Humanity has doomed itself.
