Re: 2021 albums

The tracks I've heard from the Irish band Dread Sovereign new album sound fantastic. This one was on Blayne Smith's BangerTV metal monthly show as well. Listened to it last night and again today and (for me) it's OK. There are some good moments but slightly too much psych jamming and general guitar...

Re: Bloodstock Forum Album of the Year 2020

Imperial Triumphant: Alphaville This one has appeared in quite a few EOY lists and I've tried listening to it 2 or 3 times now. "Impenetrable" is a word I'd use to describe it. I don't think I'm too far away in calling this avant-garde jazz-metal and who knew that was such a popular sub-g...

Re: 2021 albums

I suppose Ghost is the big one I'm looking forward to but also excited to hear new albums from Suffering Hour, Bewitcher, 1914 and Wormwitch.

Re: Bloodstock Forum Album of the Year 2020

Here's mine in no particular order. It's almost the same as my most recent list in the 2020 albums thread, except in the end I switched out Blasphemer for Ulcerate... Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still Bütcher - 666 Goats Carry My Chariot Dark Fortress - Spectres From The Old World Graceless -...

Maybe :D

I've always been a believer that a good album, is a good album no matter what genre.

The cards have just played a lighter album than I'd normally go for and to be fair the rest of my top 10 are pretty extreme! :rock:

The new Of Feather And Bone album is out today. First heard these guys when they played with Tomb Mold last year and discovered the "Bestial Hymns of Perversion" album was awesome so I've been eagerly awaiting this new one. This album is great Indeed it is. Not sure why I forgot to add th...

Re: 2020 Albums

The first 8 are excellent, after that it's mostly stuff that's just very good. So not the greatest year for metal. Interestingly I thought it was an awesome year for metal and a rubbish one for indie. The new Idles and Fontaines DC albums were the only ones I cared for and I was fairly disappointed...
