Is this is ranked in order or do you want each album to receive a 5.5??
Had some other front runners at the time but most of them have fallen away. RYM lists Maggot Heart as metal but I don’t think I’m inclined to count it, or it’d likely be my number one.
1. Deceased - Ghostly White
2. Lethean - The Waters of Death
3. Judas Priest - Firepower
4. Druid Lord - Grotesque Offerings
5. Satan - Cruel Magic
6. Drawn and Quartered - The One Who Lurks
7. Age of Taurus - The Colony Slain
8. Clandestine Blaze - Tranquility of Death
9. Haunt - Burst Into Flame
10. Vargrav - Netherstorm
In order. My bad!
I’ll have my list by the 2nd, but I haven’t listened to much this year. Any great black, power, or death albums I need to hear?
a lot of good tech-death from this year but i know that's not your cup of tea.
I'm not really the black metal guy but I enjoyed these:
Ifernach - Gaqtaqaiaq
Nachash - Phantasmal Triunity
Plaguestorm - Eternal Throne
Panopticon - The Scars of Man on the Once Nameless Wilderness
Autarcie - Seqvania
Valdrin - Two Carrion Talismans
Black Majesty - Children of the Abyss
Wooden Bridge - Our Hearts, Our Lives
Ancient Empire - Eternal Soldier
Candle - The Keeper's Curse
I actually like a good amount of tech death. I'm not deep into it like I am with black metal, but I listen to most of the big teach death bands.
Panphage - Jord
Communion - At the Announcement (if you like INRI and the South American extreme metal scene in general)
Mooncitadel - Moon Calls to Wander the Winter’s Masjesty
Vargrav - Netherstorm
Sorcier des Glaces - S/T
Uruk - Nihilistic Warfare in Inhuman Realms
Nachash - Phantasmal Triunity
Aorlhac - L’espirit des vents
decided i may as well finalise my list since i did 90% of the work already. will post it sometime this coming week.
I don't listen to a lot of power metal, but I really do enjoy Lovebites' "Clockwork Immortality". This is one of my favourite songs:
Their heaviest song (except for the middle part) is to be found on their "Battle Against Damnation"-EP, which was also released in 2018:
You might like this. Ancient and mystical
Don't get the hype/praise for this at all.
Do you like any Panphage? I think they're all good but Storm is probably my favourite.
Do you like Arckanum? Panphage channel a similar spirit.
I probably like Drengskapr the most, but even then I don't think they quite rise to the level of hype I see around the place. I admit it means a lot less coming from me because black metal isn't really my thing, but I find them somewhat boring, like a few tracks in and everything just feels like it's dragging. Like paint drying at times, especially Jord.
Definitely think Arckanum are better though, Fran Marder and ÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞ slay me and are way more engaging and interesting to me. Fucking love the drum sound on both albums, crispy and punishing.
I don't think I actually listened to a 2018 metal album that stuck with me other than Nachash's Phantasmal Triunity.
That SDG album got like 2 listens.
Probably missed out on some good stuff, but I just haven't had the drive to discover new metal in so long.
Best 2018 releases for me were Kamome Sano's Pâtisserie kamome, Perfume's Future Pop, & YUC'e's Cinnamon Symphony.
Reminder that I'm wrapping this up tomorrow night.
I found Nachash's full length a bit disappointing, at least compared to the excellent EP. Personally a huge fan of Jord and I think it saw Panphage go out on a high note.
Is Jord scandi-tongue for yawn? Anyway yeah I agree about the Nachash EP, way better.
Yeah Jord is great.
