Donovan Zimmerman amazing album, but even better live. blew me away minutes into album. bought it and saw them live 2 days later, where I was blown away again. Favorite track: The Oracle and the Architect.
Dan Curhan

Dan Curhan Oh my lord. The riffs. The absolutely pristine and glorious instrumental goodness that are the riffs. From the fingernails-in-palm blasting of the first song into the groovier tempos of the second with only the briefest of vocal passages, through a variety of blackened 3-piece soundscapes into the slightly more mellow 11-minute epic closer, this is technical, blackened mindfuckery in its filthiest, most satisfying form.
Metallurgical Fire

Metallurgical Fire Blackened death is one of my favorite genres, and the first time I heard this I thought I’d found the quintessential blackened death sound. I was a little overexcited, perhaps, but this is definitely going to be in the top 5 releases of the year for the genre. Just a sick album on all levels. Killer drummer. Favorite track: Below Deck.
