METAL GENTLEMAN’S DECEMBER’S IN ROTATION LIST
It’s been a busy month with family meetings and whatnot, but music still was a part of my daily routine. Check out some of the albums that plagued my playlists
Elliott Smith – Either/Or
Opening my list is this beautiful indie folk album from 1997. Soulful and a tad bitter, each song plucks my heart strings and makes me want to sit alone in a dark corner and contemplate life and death. It’s a shame such a talent had to go out so young.
Schammasch – Hearts of No Light
You might not know exactly what to expect from a Schammasch album, but you know it will be good and Hearts of No Light is no exception. With an experimental edge, the band delivers a massive opus that has so many little details inside for the listener to discover that it will ensure a gratifying experience across multiple listens.
Mortiferum – Disgorged From Psychotic Depths
Death. Doom. Filth.
Equipoise – Demiurgus
This is without a doubt my favourite tech-death album of 2019. Beautiful fretless bass lines, amazing percussion and stunning interludes with a Spanish touch. I would recommend this album to every metal fan.
Cattle Decapitation- Death Atlas
It took a while but the grinding death environmentalists are back with a new pulverising slab of music. I think that Caatle Decapitation is among the few bands that get better with time. One thing that stands out from this album are the vocals. They are unique and add a lot to the charm of this group.
