    Put Summoning, Kveldssanger, Dead Can Dance, Nest, and some other neo-folk into a blender. The result is this. My AOTY by a long shot....

    The first track deceives everyone because it sounds like another Ulverfolk ripoff, but then it just totally becomes something which is wholly unique and magical.



    I won't make an actual list, but the best of 2019:

    #1 = Wolcensmen - Fire In the White Stone
    Runner-up for #1 = Obsequiae - The Palms of Sorrowed Kings
    Nasheim - Jord och Aska
    In Human Form - III
    Mistyrming - Algleymi
    Vimur - Triumphant Master of Fates
    Crypt Sermon - The Ruins of Fading Light
    Vukari - Aevum
    Tool - Fear Innoculum
    Vehemence - Par le Sang Verse
    Saor - Forgotten Paths
    Agalloch - Pale Folklore
    Agalloch - The Mantle

    Haunter - Sacramental Death Qualia (listen to this album if you haven't heard of it. Imagine My Arms/Your Hearse mixed with filthy death/black metal)

    and ABSOLUTELY NOT "Old Star" by Darkthrone, because why are you doing this? please stop releasing albums

    Obsequiae and Borknagar were tops.

    Nile had a good come back. Alcest was pretty good. Rotting Christ had a good one.

    Gaahls Wyrd and Nasheim and yeah Pale Folklore for sure.

    That's my Top 3 which I'll probably add to in 5 years or so.

    That Wolcensmen album would be better served as a Ulver rip off. Best track was the opener, eveything beyond was a tepid lull.

    Maybe needs the proper setting.
