Album of the Month – November, 2018

Every month we collect our favorite albums of the month. Here are our favorites of November:

Rutger:

Anomalie – Integra

An awesome post-black metal album full of atmospheric soundscapes, choral passages and killer riffs. And it even has groove!

 

JP:

Silent Planet – When the End Began

To me, there is no band that has lyrics as powerful and profound as SP. The music itself is as refined and heavy as the lyrical messages and the vocal delivery is what makes the music much more moving and passionate about the issues that are brought to light.

 

Spenser:

The Ocean Collective – Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic

This was my first introduction to this band and I was not disappointed. I can’t seem to stop listening to this epic record.

 

Joey:

Cult Leader – A Patient Man

Cult Leader have shed their “Gaza 2.0” moniker that people have put on them with a crushing wholly original record. From lyrical content to musical themes, this album is pure heavy.

 

Ethan:

Bloodsoaked Necrovoid – Demo 2

Unearthly and raw death-doom from Costa Rica; imagine a more alien-sounding Spectral Voice. Garnering some attention but deserving of much more.

 

Leon:

The Ocean Collective – Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic

The Ocean does it again. Going back to their geologic themes served them well. Both fans of progressive metal and atmospheric sludge will enjoy this one.

 

Matthew:

Azusa – Heavy Yoke

Extol and The Dillinger Escapes members pilot a new melodic thrash metal project fronted by female pop singer Eleni Zafriadou. Chaos and serenity intertwine to create a breathtaking landscape à la Swallow the Sun or In Vain.

 

Hayden:

Silent Planet – When the End Began

More experimental than their last offering, silent planet give us a bleak world that pushes the reader deeper and deeper into the dreary scene they paint throughout the album.

 

Shankar:

The Ocean Collective – Phanerozoic I: Palaezoic

Once again, The Ocean delivers a proggy delight equally balanced with heaviness and crystalline delicateness.

 

Connor:

Sigh – Heir to Despair

Heir to Despair is frantic, creative, and beautifully weird.

 

Reid:

Sarah Longfield – Disparity

For fans of prog such as animals as leaders, polyphia, and BTBM. Sarah takes a calmer, more experimental approach. Some of the best guitar work and drumming you’ll hear this year.

 

Hannes:

Warkings – Reborn

Behind the goofy masks hide talented musicians that sure know how to write catchy and infectious battle anthems.

 

Elias:

Groza – United in Void

This is an album with a wonderful mix of black and melodic death metal sound perfect for the winter season.

“The demo was better.”
