MY TOP 10 FOR OCTOBER 2018

Изображение
October was very hectic. In terms of everything. Including music. So many bands released new records. I admit I listened to some part and to certain extend what was out there. Actually few things made me impression. I list them here. In November I'm going to try to catch up with some of the October albums. For sure I missed some great one.
Few important moments: I was expecting so badly the new Skull Fist in the end of October, but it was such a disappointment. On that same date probably 150 artists released new records. Some big names, which I found disappointing too. (I won't put names here). I guess I must spend some more time with them?
New Unreqvited appeared out of the blue on Bandcamp, with official release date 23 November by the record label. That's why this will be part of my November top list - my love for Unrevqited is well known.
Below is the list which I hardly gathered to be honest. 10 +1 albums, in no particular order, which deserve a good listen...and mor…

MY TOP 10 FOR SEPTEMBER 2018

Autumn is here. Leaves are falling in the colder shorter days, under the colder sun...September passed imperceptibly. Naturally the music which was released was much more than the hours I could have listened to and it was again difficult to choose the finest 10. In the end it happened to be very diverse selection. There were too many bands releasing in September from all kinds of genres...Top 10 shaped with a lot of potential bonus tracks. Fatal 13 in total here though.


WOLFHEART - "Constellation of the Black Light"
Release Date: 28 September 2018

One of the most finest albums in 2018. Period


CAULDRON - New Gods
Release Date 7 September 2018

Below In Ruin, but still very enjoyable. Cauldron doing what they do best - revive the good old times.
My review for Blessed Altar Zine here

ARCHGOAT - Luciferian Crown
Release Date: 14 September 2018

Archgoat, either like them or not. Never disappoint. Bestial as usual.



MONSTROSITY - The Passage Of Existence
Release Date: 7 September 2018

Monstrou…

MY TOP 10 FOR AUGUST 2018

Изображение
It is that time of the month again. The time when I draw the line and select my top list from the releases which happened in the past 30 days.
August wasn't that active (yeah it was summertime; parties and sun; WTF?!! - it's metal ffs!), but still some very fine albums saw the world. I'll do my best to list those ten, which made me serious impression and made my month a better one. Really not much into the Underground this time... :-(
I leave here the condition that I haven't given a proper listen to all the new albums which slipped through the very last day of August - the 31st.
So let's start.

I begin with something which was released on 30 July but it is mandatory here!

THE MOOR - Jupiter's Immigrants
Release Date: 30 July

A close friend of mine made me listen to this album. OMG! Thank you! This is really like a shot of life. Huge reminder for To/Die/For with almost invisible tone of Soilwork here and there (vocals). Definitely a fantastic release, which easil…

MY TOP 10 FOR JULY 2018

Изображение
WOW! 7 months already gone from 2018! It is really an inexorable time. And on top I turned 40 in July.
Actually July wasn't that much intense of many releases, but still there were few which got me solidly. So here they are - my top choices from the released in July albums, in no particular order. With really tiny descriptions this time.


KHÔRADA - Salt
Release date: 20 July

Post-metal of different level. Atmospheric, progressive, sad. This is amazing.
SPACESLUG - EYE THE TIDE
Release Date: 20 July

Absolutely magnificent Kozmic Doom - gloomy, melancholic, trippy. Use your imagination...
THE LION'S DAUGHTER - FUTURE CULT
Release Date: 20 July

What a release! Black, sludge, progressive. Top-notch new album by TLD.
OBSCURA - DILUVIUM
Release Date: 13 July

You all know what it is.

High quality cavernous death/doom. Only 3 songs. Unfortunately.
1968 - BALLADS OF THE GODLESS
Release date: 6 July

Even the artworks says it all. Stoner. 70s. Beautiful
DEE SNIDER - FOR THE LOVE OF METAL
Release Date…
