Board Up The House
This may be a contender for best album of the year. Not only is the album killer, but the live show was even more intense. This is like Grindy Nasty Electro Metal at its finest, with really refined beats, great melodies, and gimmick free. Groove laden brutal fun for all ages!
Massive Conspiracy Against All Life
Leviathan… bay area drone-ish black as night metal. What need I say more than that?
Hell is Empty and all the Devils are Here
Anaal is as tight as ever (wink.) This is actually one of my more favorite of their albums, just because the songs are more concise, a little more hook oriented, but still as nasty and brutal as they come. It’s good fast brutality. They will play in here in LA in 2 days, and I’m fairly excited, cant wait.
I’m feeling a lot of Helmetness and Isisery here, and in one song a touch of Celtic Frost’s pounding. This is really good stuff. Nothing that’s too invasive, just pretty smooth and heavy.
To Tell you the truth I haven’t listened to this one enough to know if it will be in my heart forever, but so far I really dig it. It’s dark and sludgy, but very much in the family of Black Metal. It’s got an element of shoegazery-orchestration to it that I really enjoy, but with all the low production value of a good garage tape.
An Oldy but a goody, this sucker has been pulled out of the archives and back into my daily routine. I was reading that they will be doing a new album, I hope it’s smooth. But if you’ve never heard this… and you like good proggy-spacey death metal with vocoders… maybe you should probably have already owned this.
