MY TOP 10 FOR NOVEMBER 2018

November was very good month for the heavy music, delivering fantastic releases just before the very end of this glorious for the metal music year. I listened to a lot of new records, and payed homage to classics as well. As usual, it was difficult to pick up the ten finest. So in no particular order, I present my November 2018 Top 10. Definitely I may have missed something.

*listening how the year very silently moves and passes through the gates of time, leaving memories and wrinkles.

BURNING WITCHES - Hexenhammer
Release Date: 9 November

Warlock meets Phantom Blue in 2018. I was so captivated by this record. It's not typical for me, though I really enjoy it very much. Great riffs and melodies here.




BAST - Nanoångström 
Release Date: 23 November

Profound, vast, dark. A dark matter floating through the mind and the body. Top notch existential blackened sludge to measure the tiniest distances of the cosmic space and human soul.

WITHERFALL - Prelude To Sorrow
Release Date: 2 November

Cutting edge professionalism and musicianship.

CLOUDS - Dor
Release Date: 23 November

The most beautiful despair, so deep, so painful, so bemused.


DÉCEMBRE NOIR - Autumn Kings
Release Date: 9 November

An autumn epos in noir. Doom, death, black, melodic and sorrowful.

A FLOCK NAMED MURDER - An Appointed Time
Release Date: 31 October

Fantastic blackened sludge/doom. Heavy, mesmerizing, progressive. Sad. Painful. Stabbing.

UNREQVITED - Mosaic I: l'amot et l'ardeur
Release Date: 23 November

This is Unreqvited, ffs. That's enough.

1914 - The Blind Leading The Blind
Release Date: 11 November

Glorious war record, containing death, black, doom...everything which can bring wounds and can leave dead bodies on the lonely battlefield...Only the echo of the wind can be heard... 





HRIZG - Soterion
Release date: 2 November

Excellent atmospheric black metal. Got to this album by chance, but it turned to be among the best BM records of 2018.

DECEASED - Ghostly White
Release Date: 16 November

I must admit this was huge surprise. However the album has it all - amazing melodies, riffs, tempo and even some nostalgic feeling. HUGE!
