    Black Viper - Metal Blitzkrieg 8/10
    Solid upbeat fun! Loved the part ~2:00

    Necrophobic - Mark of the Necrogram 10/10
    About the perfect mix of melodic and extreme IMO.

    Invocation Spells - Victims of Doom 6/10
    Was alright. Reminds of a more chaotic/lo-fi Destroyer 666.

    Spectral Wound - Black Satanic Glamour 8/10
    Song seems like it could be great, but overly muffled production really hurts the potential. Found a better version on Youtube that sounds much better. Changed it from a 6 to and 8 based on the not-shitty version.

    Gama Bomb - Give Me Leather 9/10
    Didn't like it at first, but this really grows on ya!

    A Forest of Stars - Children of the Night Soil 6/10
    Every time I've tried this band the instrumentation kicks my ass but that vocalist ruins it. It's not even his voice so much as the croning style.

    Lovebites - Rising 5/10
    I'm normally not a fan of female vocals in metal but these are okay. That said, way too bright and bubbly power metal style on the instrumentation.

    Azath - Bonecaster 5/10
    Eh. Can't critique it really, just not my thing.

    Amorphia - Necromancers 3/10
    One of those thrash bands that lean way too hard into the punk-ish vocal style. Meh.

    Sulphur Aeon - The Summoning of Nyarlathotep 10/10
    Love me some atmospheric death of this style. Only gripe with the band IMO is they tend to have a mix of killer and filler. Thankfully this was one of the former.

    Unfortunately it's off a full-album so wouldn't work so well for the playlist... for anyone who want's to give it another shot it's below @ 6:00 in.

    When are you planning on ending this? I'll get around to it if it's still going by the weekend.

    Plenty of time, just reminding you cunts. I won't end it until every submitter has rated.

    Black Viper - Metal Blitzkrieg 8/10
    Playlist starts off properly. Loving the riffage here. Would have gave it another .5 but the vocals were a mixed bag for me.

    Necrophobic - Mark of the Necrogram 9/10
    Melodic black/death the way it should be. Best track on the album and one of the best songs they've written in years.

    Invocation Spells - Victims of Doom 7.5/10
    Some good ole blackened thrash. Solid track but loses some steam around the 2:30 mark

    Spectral Wound - Black Satanic Glamour 7/10
    Not bad at all. Love the riff that kicks in at 2:18(and again at 3:00 and one more time towards the end)

    Gama Bomb - Give Me Leather 9/10
    GIVE ME LEATHHHHHHAAAA! Not only is this one of the best songs they've recorded in years, but one of their best to date. What's not to like here?

    A Forest of Stars - Children of the Night Soil 6/10
    A few interesting parts but overall pretty meh and definitely the weakest track on here so far.

    Lovebites - Rising 2.5/10
    [​IMG]

    Azath - Bonecaster 6/10

    Not bad, but absolutely nothing stands out on this track.

    Amorphia - Necromancers 8/10
    This is some pretty cool teutonic influenced thrash. If you cant enjoy this then you should be neutered and forced to turn in your metal card.

    Sulphur Aeon - The Summoning of Nyarlathotep 7/10
    'twas good

    Black Viper - Metal Blitzkrieg

    Good stuff 8/10

    Necrophobic - Mark of the Necrogram

    Instantly recognizable as Necrophobic, but they haven't sounded this good in years. Nice surprise 8.5/10

    Invocation Spells - Victims of Doom

    Love the unashamed worship of 80s bestial black/thrash. Some of my favourite riffs of the whole year here 9.5/10

    Spectral Wound - Black Satanic Glamour

    Some nice riffs but seems fairly average and generic and it isn't really my style these days 5/10

    Gama Bomb - Give Me Leather

    Solid, not huge on the vocalist 6.5/10

    A Forest of Stars - Children of the Night Soil

    Not good 4/10

    Lovebites - Rising

    Less good 2/10

    Azath - Bonecaster

    Nasty and ugly. Cool Malazan reference 8/10

    Amorphia - Necromancers

    Love some of these ultra basic, evil sounding riffs 7.5/10

    Sulphur Aeon - The Summoning of Nyarlathotep

    Seems like the sort of thing I should enjoy, or would've once enjoyed a lot. Would probably grow on me but eh 6/10

    Black Viper - Metal Blitzkrieg 7.5/10

    High energy opener. Pretty good.

    Necrophobic - Mark of the Necrogram 7/10

    Not bad, but doesn't hold a candle to The Nocturnal Silence or even Darkside. Kinda surprised how highly this was rated in various places last year.

    Invocation Spells - Victims of Doom 8/10

    Riffs and filth!

    Spectral Wound - Black Satanic Glamour 7/10

    I wasn't into this album at all when I first heard it, but this is actually not bad. Some cool melodic riffing, but the vocalist is a bit grating. Perhaps it'll grow on me ever more.

    Gama Bomb - Give Me Leather 5.5/10

    A Forest of Stars - Children of the Night Soil 3/10

    Overdramatic and annoying. Definitely not for me.

    Lovebites - Rising 2.5/10

    Hideously saccharine.

    Azath - Bonecaster 8/10

    A whirlwind of utter devastation. Lots of driving momentum and some cool melodic ideas. Unfortunately the vocalist isn't that great.

    Amorphia - Necromancers 7/10

    Enjoyable dirty thrash attack.

    Sulphur Aeon - The Summoning of Nyarlathotep 6/10

    Thought my pick would have done a bit better. As I already said, I’m not huge on the vocalist, but everything else is pretty good imo. Definitely looking forward to a full length from them.
