These are the records that stood out for me. Happy new year to everyone.
Skáphe - Skáphe³
Tension, chaos, aggressive melodies immersed in an atmosphere of litany from the abyss.
Sumac - May You Be Held
Psychedelia, Noise, Sludge Doom experimentation. Extremely balanced production, something you can hardly find in the genre. Great artwork, great trip.
Ancst - Summits of Despondency
When the cocktail you invent succeeds. Black / death, Punk elements and political message. Torn vocals heaven shall burn style, all combined together to an in your face result
Vredehammer - Viperous
Black Death Norway. Speed to the limit, production / sound to perfection, drums and guitars in front as they deserve. The electronic component placed masterly where it is needed, the most pleasant surprise
Vous Autres - Sel de pierre
Heavy melodic and deeply inspired album. The constant atmosphere hovering over the stoic sludge doom of the french is what makes this record a masterpiece.
Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still
Intricate compositions, alternating rhythms. The unexpected technical performances are blending perfectly with the dark vocals. Always spellbinding Ulcerate. After Shrines of Paralysis they emerge with another great album.
Yoth Iria - Under His Sway
Heavy metal and doom. Black aesthetics. Three tracks are enough to put you in a state of war from hell. Amazing debut EP, we expect the album in a few days.
Gorrch - Introvertere
Fierce demonized black, solid compositions and guitar shredding impressively with a very special style, five years after the first record the Italians reward us with this excellent EP.
SILANCE - Chimeras
Volume, alternation, distortion and mysterious compositions. Synthwave / Darkwave diamond from Russia.
Fabient - Space Trip
A synth minimal soundscape straight from space
Methysmerna - Chroma
Continuous ambient, pulsating dreamy atmosphere. Soundscapes of matter and void. A journey into light and darkness.
haircuts for men - 1989
An album I play over and over again after the first hearing, great melodies, relaxed rhythms, the definition of electronic chill music.
CZLT - EXOPLANET
Εxperiments with solar flares and planets translated into sound, avant garde chaotic atmospheres from another dimension by a member of Neptunian Maximalism.
Laurel Halo - Possessed
Noise and synth ambient experiments, david lynch atmosphere, classic cello and piano acoustic parts, an excellent album / soundtrack.
