  1. α
    by Blind Tendril
    A lot of stoner rock/metal stays within the same musical space without a lot of tonal variety. This record emphatically does not. It features a wide variety of instruments and sounds that are all used in the service of great songs. The best comparison in my mind is a more musically expansive version of The Sword, but I can hear a lot of different bands in here--of course, there's the Sabbath and Zeppelin, but I can also hear some Alice in Chains and Breaking Benjamin as well. Highly recommended.
  2. Inche Kai Che
  3. Quantum Resolution
    by Kekal
  4. Bizarre Adventures
    by The Nick House Party
    I love this album because I wrote and recorded it.
  5. Terrestria IV: Work
    by Rivers of Nihil
    Downloaded the rest of the album from Freegal. Warning: some of the album is good, some of it sounds like Korn.
  6. In Chaos Ascend (Death Metal)
    by NECROPHAGOUS (Sweden)
    This album manages to be very catchy and hooky without ever becoming melodic--quite a feat.
  7. When We Are Forgotten
    by Imperium Dekadenz
    Absenz Elysium Absenz Elysium
    I have to make a conscious effort to listen to other black metal albums in order to avoid listening to When We Are Forgotten multiple times in a row. It's that good. "Absenz Elysium" may be my favorite black metal song of all time. The whole album evokes feelings of wandering around ancient ruins as night falls. Why isn't this band as hyped as Wolves In The Throne Room?
  8. Illusions In The Wake (Atmospheric Black Metal)
    by NOLTEM (US)
    This sounds more like doom metal to me--and really good doom metal at that. This band feels like the spiritual sibling of Pallbearer, as both groups feature melancholy lead guitar lines and beautiful storytelling through music.
  9. Ascetic (Dissonant Black Metal)
    by NORSE (Australia)
    Absolutely cavernous metal. Billed as "dissonant black" but I hear a good deal of doom as well, especially in the massive pulsating basslines. My only quibble is that it's a bit repetitive for my taste, but that's clearly a feature rather than a bug, as the band is aiming for a dirgey, hypnotic sound.
  10. Invocation Codex (Lovecraftian Death Metal)
    by BIZARRE (Spain)
    "From the caverns below came the Stygian chorus, the eldritch sound of Invocation Codex by Bizarre, and all who heard it were reduced to madness..."
  11. Unterweger (Brutal Death Metal)
    by MONUMENT OF MISANTHROPY (International)
  12. Zenith (Sci-fi Black Metal)
  13. Sharing Is Caring (Brutal Death Metal)
    by CUTTERRED FLESH (Czechia)
  14. Rock and Roll
    by Christian Shields
    This is my theme song that I listen to so I can get pumped up. Who knew that the best 80s hard rock song would be written decades after the 80s?
  15. Antiverse - Under the Regolith
    by Antiverse
  16. Hard to Stop
    by High Spirits
    The year is 1982. You have your first kiss. This album is playing in the background.
  17. Continents Apart
    by Escape From Echo Base
    The proggy side of post-hardcore.
  18. Stare Into Death And Be Still
    by Ulcerate
    This record reminds me a lot of Gojira. Ulcerate is not anything close to a Gojira clone, but both bands seem to paint with a similar sonic palette, expanding the musical vocabulary of death metal into something more expansive and impressionistic. Ulcerate is more on the atmospheric, dreamlike side of things--but that doesn't mean that this record isn't punishingly heavy.
  19. Letters From The Edge
    by Sear Bliss
    Great mix of pomp and melancholy. "Black metal with a trombone" sounds gimmicky on paper, but rest assured--there are no gimmicks on this album. Horns up!
  20. Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas Innoble
    by Reverorum ib Malacht
    Incompatible Moloch Incompatible Moloch
    "Incompatible Moloch" was the most terrifying thing I had ever heard on my entire life. Then "Cloud of Unknowing came on."
