This post is for the metal-heads out there. Actually, you don’t have to be a full on metal-head to appreciate these bands and albums but it would certainly help if you do have an appreciation for the genre. I happen to love the characteristics of the particular sub-genre of Death Metal, so much so that sometimes I even get a warm fuzzy feeling when I hear some especially good stuff. Also, the fact that this sub-genre happens to have some of the coolest album covers only adds to my level of appreciation.
Nunslaughter – Goat (2003)
Genre: Death Metal
Oh man! I had a feeling I’d get into this gem as soon as I saw the album cover alone. This is one of those records that gave me that warm fuzzy feeling I mentioned above. There is some great riffage in here. I’d like to put a spotlight on Raid the Convent, there’s a track that made me laugh yet still made me put up those horns and testify!
Haemophagus – Atrocious (2014)
Genre: Death Metal/Grindcore
Some worthy mentions
Okay, so these are some very special personal faves of mine that differ in style from what I listed above. I really have to call these ones out because I feel like they deserve the attention.
Burzum – The Ways Of Yore (2014)
Endast – Thrive (2014)
The Great Sabatini – Dog Years (2014)
That’s it! I hope you discovered something cool with this post.
