28. Dez. 2013, 6:20 von KMFCMSo, 2013 is over.
It was bullshit
I don't feel like talking too much about it.
i will say this though. . . .
Pretty much every top list for this year I've seen minus 3 or 4 (not counting friends) was made by someone who has mellowed out way too much (especially since a lot of these were "best of metal" lists.. . .really??).
I can promise you one thing, even though my list isn't just metal, my list brings that HARSH. There was enough harsh to go around this year, but it isn't getting ackowledged by enough people. I will do that right here right now(basically, Sunbather is not on my list. . . .and you read my verdict, so you know I don't hate it. It's a fine album, it just doesn't capture the mood of 2013 at all. . .nor does any of the shit everyone is losing their shit over this year in an attempt to get normies to listen)
. . .and the year was a bit overloaded, but I am pickier these days. . .so. . . here we go. . .

20. Jan. 2012, 4:28 von desaparecid0These are my favorite albums of the year. I could keep tweaking it forever. I know in the next few months I'm going to find albums I missed and albums that I didn't appreciate enough, so please tell me what you think I need to check out.
Anyone who thought 2011 was disappointing for music needs to dig a bit deeper. Some major artists disappointed and complete unknowns blew up.
It's time to move on to 2012 though, so here's what I liked in 2011. If an artist had multiple, noteworthy releases I grouped them.
1. Washed Out - Within and Without
2. M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
3. Deafheaven - Roads to Judah
4. Bright Eyes - The People's Key
5. And So I Watch You From Afar - Gangs
6. James Blake - James Blake/Enough Thunder
7. Woods of Desolation - Torn Beyond Reason
8. Wolves in the Throne Room - Celestial Lineage
9. Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean
10. Nero - Welcome Reality
11. The Weeknd - House of Balloons/Thursday/Echoes of Silence
14. Jan. 2012, 3:09 von KMFCMthe best rekkids of 2011
2001 fucking blew ass. While many mellowed out, I felt more and more like DESTROYING EVERYTHING. . .and my choices this year reflect that. It was a disappointing year in many many many ways. . . .but musically, we made out okay I think (even with the sheer amount of disappointing music there was from unexpected sources).
This took really fucking long, because my computer kept taking a shit. . . .so. . . . I'm just posting it now so I can get to the new years releases. .. not that I've heard any of them yet.
40. Ringo Deathstarr - Colour Trip
bloody valentines, mary chains and 80s Al B Sure break beats (no, seriously, listen to the last track). . .it's all here.
39. Ulcerate - Destroyers of All
the "i see what you did there" album of the year. It's not the kind of thing I ever thought I'd hear, and it's kind of still sinking in even now.
38. Elitist - Fear in a Handful of Dust
Season of Mist had a pretty high profile release this year…

16. Apr. 2011, 3:02 von KMFCMthey're coming thick and fast. . . lets get started. . .
Dead Flesh Fashion - Thorns
I am so happy to hear that DFF didn't decide to attempt to write a Trap Them album, like so many similar bands (The Secret and Torch Runner were pretty god damn disappointing) have done in the last two years. The main differences from Anchors are the much sludgier production and a sludgier sound in general. There's still a lot of mathcore going on, but far less breakdowns than last album. The track that hit as hard as some of the stuff on Anchors is defintely "(III)". . .but unfortunately, nothing as cave-someones-head-in as "apocalypse accessior".
Meek Is Murder - Algorithms
other than some songs having that whole "I listen to too much new Converge" vibe(by the way, remember I had Axe to Fall in my top 5 back in 2009. . .I completely take that back it should be at 40. NO replay value more than a year later), this is what metalcore is supposed to sound like through and through. …
