Date: 11/10/2023

  • Style: Neo Folk
  • Year: 2010

Old classic of the genre, recently moving its way up as one of my favorites. A combo of blissful atmosphere and the tinges of classic industrial tones.
Favorite track: Born Again

Date: 11/06/2023

  • Style: Screamo
  • Year: 2020

Another find from my recent kick of newer skramz, this album packs an extensive emotional punch along with beautiful backing tracks.

  • Style: Black / Death Metal
  • Year: 2023
  • Country:US

Odd find from just a few days ago. Absolute banger of a blackened deathgrind album, with a very energetic atmosphere to each track.
Favorite track: Swallow the Light

Date: 9/09/2023

  • Style: Post-hardcore / Screamo
  • Year: 2019
  • Country:US

One of the best albums I've come across since I've come back to listening to a lot of screamo recently. Truly chaotic and overall a blitz of sound from start to finish.
Favorite track: You Will Be Held Accountable for Your Actions

Date: 6/04/2023

  • Style: Funeral death-doom
  • Year: 2005
  • Country:Germany

Revisiting funeral doom and remembered this album is an absolute gem. From the punishing riffs to the funeral synth lines, an absolute experence from start to finish.
Favorite track: Ahab's Oath

Date: 3/07/2023

  • Style: Blackened death-doom / gothic metal
  • Year: 1996
  • Country:Sweden

Genuinely an album of it's era, Katatonia's 1996 release of Brave Murder Day holds up as one of the strongest albums in the death-doom genre as well as one of the strongest albums of the 90s as a whole. A perfect mix of the extreme metal genres forming in the decade along with the atmosphere of 80s goth.
Favorite track: Brave

Date: 1/11/2023

  • Style: Black Metal
  • Year: 2023
  • Country:Greece

Starting the year off strong with one of the most elegant blackm metal releases I've heard in awhile. "Liber Lvcifer II" has all the hallmarks of a strong hellenic release, from chanting, to chaotic blastbeats, to the classic calls for satan.
Favorite track: Sacrosanct Pyre

Date: 1/05/2023

  • Style: Sludge Metal
  • Year: 2011
  • Country:US

Another highschool favorite of mine. SubRosa outputs a unique form of sludge metal with crushing riffs, atmospheric string layering, and female vocals. Extremely emotional at times.
Favorite track: Whippoorwill

Date: 12/21/2022

  • Style: Progressive Folk/ Psychedelic
  • Year: 1971
  • Country:UK

A favorite of mine from when I was in highschool. Comus's First Utterance is a one of a kind album, a perfect mix of the oddities of the late 60s folk and psychedelic atmosphere.
Favorite track: The Herald

Date: 12/20/2022

  • Style: Folk/ Gospel / Psychedelic
  • Year: 1970
  • Country:USA

Came across this again recently. Exuma’s self titled is truly something that only could have come out of the late 60s / early 70s as a trip between tribal chants and psychedelic sounds.
Favorite track: Mama Loi, Papa Loi

Date: 12/10/2022

  • Style: EMB
  • Year: 2017
  • Country:Germany

Really fun ebm I came across earlier this year that packs a punch while maintaining some punk ethos to their sound.
Favorite track: Liebe Offensive

Date: 12/02/2022

  • Style: Neo-folk
  • Year: 2022
  • Country:UK

It's probably my favorite album of David's since the turn of the century. If A City Is Set Upon A Hill mixes children's lullabies with neofolk and the vocal work that Current 93 is best known for.
Favorite track: Clouds At Teatime

Date: 11/27/2022

  • Style: Dungeon Synth
  • Year: 1997
  • Country:USA

One of the gems of the dungeon synth genre, Enchantment Of The Ring is packed with some of the best atmosphere that the genre has to offer. From ambient guitar overlays to dreamy pad synths, it has become a foundational layout for the genre as it is now.
Favorite track: What Lies Beyond the Door

Date: 11/25/2022

  • Style: Neo-folk
  • Year: 2011
  • Country:Germany

Birch Book exemplifies some of the best music that the neo folk genre offers, with both tracks holding a very peaceful atmosphere rarely found in the genre. This release is part of a larger folk influened compilation that spans many amazing artists.
Favorite track: Werewolf's Eyes

Date: 11/23/2022

  • Style: dsbm/Atmospheric Black Metal
  • Year: 2008
  • Country:Germany

Another amazing album that stuck with me after highschool. Coldworld since has produced some of the highest grade material out of black metal genre, from blackgaze, to traditional black metal, to atmo black.
Favorite track: Hymn To Eternal Frost

Date: 11/20/2022

  • Style: Noise/Power Electronics
  • Year: 2022
  • Country:Germany

Power electronic album packed with sexual extremism and 30 minutes of punishing noise. A fresh taste of noise from this year.
Favorite track: Spit In My Mouth (Pearly Whites)

Date: 11/18/2022

  • Style: dsbm/Post-rock
  • Year: 2010
  • Country:Germany

One of my all time favorite black metal albums along with an amazing mix of dsbm into early blackgaze. Highly recomend.
