Sun Worship – Emanations of Desolation

This year could end up being remembered by many things, but if there’s any justice in the world, one of those things will be big, groovy, stanky riffs. From the cosmic dealings of Teeth and Blood Incantation to the earth-shattering antics of Fit For an Autopsy, 2019 was filled with…

Death’s Door – November 2019

Welcome, Hellions, to Death’s Door. We’ve reached peak faux happiness around the world, and quite frankly I’ve had just about enough of it. Good thing we have some fresh and crispy death metal to get us through these disgustingly cheerful times.  There’s no way around it at this point. What…

Editors’ Picks – November 2019

November! I love November. That’s when it starts to really get cold in Israel. November is also when music starts to slow down as people prepare for the Big Freeze (both in temperatures and in social presence) that is December. However, this is 2019 and all the Old Laws do…

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! thall

thall, but we also talk about thall. Then we have thall and thall. This joke sucks. Music from Unlucky Morpheus, Reasoning Reflections, Liturgy, Blood Incantation, Vildhjarta.

Perihelion Summer by Greg Egan, endgame stuff from The Division 2, and the big one – a Death Straning blowout. Enjoy.

Hey! Listen to Desecresy!

I just recently wrote about this fantastic album in our latest installment of Death’s Door, and my initial statements regarding it bear repeating: Desecresy are one of the most underrated death metal bands working today and it’s an absolute shame that their releases haven’t received more widespread coverage.

Vale of Pnath – Accursed

Over the past several years, few scenes in the metal world have rivaled the expansive growth and quality of the music coming out of Denver, Colorado. Khemmis, Primitive Man, Blood Incantation, Spectral Voice, In the Company of Serpents, Dreadnought, Of Feather and Bone, Allegaeon, and Green Druid are but a…

Ossuarium – Living Tomb

Death metal, perhaps more than any other genre, builds monuments to its past often, and it builds them tall. And can anyone really find fault in that? With stylistic confines so severe, and such a wealth of talent and personality from day one, it’s not hard to see why every…

You’ve seen it. You’ve debated it. You’ve cried over it. But what’s done is done: Our list of the best albums of the year is behind us, and there is much rejoicing. But what about the albums we loved that didn’t make the final cut?
