    Directions: Rank Deathspell Omega's 7 albums plus 5 EPs, and number each album 1-12. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 12 points, your second place album earns 11 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 7 albums. Lists with less than 7 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 12 albums, the first placed album will still get 12 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • If you don't number your list then it will be assumed that it is ranked in order
    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Saturday, November 28th at 10:00 AM PST to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    Infernal Battles (2000)
    Inquisitors of Satan (2002)
    Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice (2004)
    Kénôse EP (2005)
    Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum (2007)
    Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum: Chaining the Katechon EP (2008)
    Mass Grave Aesthetics EP (2008)

    I decided to count all 5 EPs, as I think most people who listen to DSO's albums also listen to their EPs. Also, there's no logic to how DSO catalog their albums. Kénôse is 36 minutes, and is called an EP, while TFOP is 29 minutes but is called a full length.

    Plus they also released Diabolus Absconditus and Mass Grave Aesthetics together but I based my rankings on how you've got them listed. Was actually contemplating putting Furnaces at number 2. Still really high on that album.

    1. Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum
    2. Paracletus
    3. The Furnaces of Palingenesia
    4. Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice
    5. Drought
    6. Diabolus Absconditus
    7. The Synarchy of Molten Bones
    8. Mass Grave Aesthetics
    9. Kénôse
    10. Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum: Chaining the Katechon
    11. Inquisitors of Satan
    12. Infernal Battles

    A couple typos. You have two 5s and MGA is on the list twice.

    Big props to cf! I talked a lot of shit about this band during my first couple of years here (mostly dumb trolling rather than genuine criticism) but after I took crimsonfloyd's recommendations onboard I realized how great they are, and then The Furnaces of Palingenesia dropped and they've become a staple in my listening habits. Fucking amazing band with one of the strongest discographies ever (and so much to discover as you relisten).

    Only things here I wasn't already familiar with was the first album and some of those EPs so their placement is based on just one listen. Potentially a controversial ordering? Their later material clicked most with me and then I started working my way backwards, so...

    Think you'll find it's the album before that's 29 mins.

    I can hardly believe that I haven't listened to a new DsO release in 10 years. Paracletus and Fas are some amazing examples of modern BM and I enjoy them every now and then, but haven't checked if they released anything new. I was going to participate since I really like DsO, but looks like I got some new albums to explore first!

    The Synarchy of Molten Bones is good but a little stale stylistically; still worth checking out. The Furnaces of Palingenesia is super interesting. On the whole is slower and a bit less intense than Fas and Paracletus, but it's super dark and eerie sounding. Really great release.
