Goddamn some great stuff came out this year.

What are you favorites so I can go listen to them?

Here's my list:

AOTY is a two-way tie between:
  • Blood Incantation - Starspawn
  • Cultes Des Ghoules - Coven, or Evil Ways Instead of Love

Best of the year in no particular order:
  • Urfaust - Empty Space Mediation
  • Panphage - Drengskapr
  • Inquisition- Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith
  • Recluse - Stillbirth in Bethlehem
  • Howls of Ebb - Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows
  • Void Meditation Cult - Utter the Tongue of the Dead
  • Urzeit - Anmoshka
  • Forgotten Spell - Epiphaneia Phosphorus (Angel, God or Insanity)
  • White Medal - Lyke Wake

Honorable mentions:
  • Panphage / thul - Ginnheilagr (only because it's really just 3 Panphage songs)
  • Panphage - Genom Konst & Krig (released this year, but a compilation of his first 5 releases, so not really a new album)
  • Necromantic Worship - The Calling...
  • DsO - Synarchy of Molten Bones
  • Dead Congregation - Sombre Doom
  • Demon Bitch - Hellfriends

So, so much this year. A few I really enjoyed...

Krypts - Remnants of Expansion
Inverloch - Distance | Collapsed
Profanatica - Curling Flame of Blasphemy
Mortem - Deinůs Nekrůmantis
Void Meditation Cult - Utter the Tongue of the Dead
Sumerlands - S/T
Irkallian Oracle - Apollyon
Grave Miasma - Endless Pilgrimage


Still so far behind in listening this year and even further behind in buying.

This.

Although I'm claiming Exercises in Futility, as the vinyl was released this year.

Since I just happened to have compiled a list for another forum:

Furia - Księżyc milczy luty
Hail Spirit Noir - Mayhem in Blue
Panphage - Drengskapr
Agatus - The Eternalist
Deathspell Omega - The Synarchy of Molten Bones
Vircolac - The Cursed Travails of the Demeter
Howls of Ebb - Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows
Gorguts - Pleiades' Dust
Hostium - The Bloodwine of Satan
Teleport - Ascendance
Anicon - Exegeses
Borknagar - Winter Thrice
Vindland - Hanter Savet
Void Meditation Cult - Utter the Tongue of the Dead
Nucleus - Sentient
Wakedead Gathering, the - Fuscus: Strings of the Black Lyre
Occult Burial - Hideous Obscure
Mortem - Deinos Nekromantis
Gjendod - s/t demo
Armory - World Peace ... Cosmic War


Furia ruled everything by far, it's just so easy to listen to, over and over.

For completely dirty, evil black thrash, Occult Burial is hard to beat. Teleport was a nice surprise; it sounds like a morose version of Coroner with some weird Deathspell Omega dissonance thrown in. Mortem is pretty much early Morbid Angel by way of Peru. Anicon's melodic black metal with a grab bag of influences and the big Colin Marston drum production, might appeal to fans of Nachtmystium's Instinct:Decay. And Armory is balls out surf the apocalypse speed metal with a singer that sounds like Jon Oliva in the Sirens/Dungeons are Calling days.

https://occultburial.bandcamp.com/releases
https://teleport1.bandcamp.com/
https://gileadmedia.bandcamp.com/album/exegeses
https://armory417.bandcamp.com/

Seriously, "Artificial Slavery" and "Phantom Warrior" from that Armory are two of the rippingest songs I've heard all year. It only squeaked onto my ballot because I just found about it recently.
