    Buy the album digitally on Bandcamp for $1 if you feel you should own it before listing it.

    Wait, when you buy the digital album you only get what's free and available anyway, not the whole thing?

    The Bandcamp page for Communion is a mess because it hasn't been updated since the album was first teased. Contact Hells Headbangers because they're in control of the page.

    That said, I'm buying those albums. If they actually ship on December 29th (big :rolleyes: here) and arrive before the 5th of January, I'll gladly send you a ripped copy if they haven't resolved the issue by that time.

    Besides, GoD is unlikely to actually end this thread on time.

    this should be a very helpful thread for me, not sure if i've listened to anything strictly new this year. Malokarpatan sounds nice though, gonna play that one out.

    Yeah, I should just buy the physical of that already. I guess I'm more eager for At the Announcement because most of the songs will be new to me, and the preview track fucking kills. I've had their s/t EP for a few years now and at least a few of those songs are on The Communion.

    @TechnicalBarbarity @The Ozzman Guess I'll need to check out Gorod & Scale The Summit then. Didn't realize those two had new releases. Two bands outside my atmoblack/stoner/folk bubble that have impressed in the past!
