Can't believe it's NYE, and I haven't seen a proper Listmania thread yet. Guess I'll do the dirty deed and kick the party off. I wasn't as engaged for all of 2021. Lots of shit going on between COVID, job promotion, and deaths in the family, but I still managed to listen to a good deal of new stuff. My list won't be nearly as exhaustive as the General's 964 entry listapalooza, but hopefully you can find a thing or 2 on here that you may have missed that hits your sweet spot. Without further adieu... All the goods I considered for the final cut: Black Metal Marras – Endtime Sermon Circle of Ouroboros - Kiromantia Starer – 18” Below the Horizon Archgoat – Worship the Eternal Darkness Warloghe – Three Angled Void Lamp of Murmur – Submission and Slavery Clandestine Blaze – Secrets of Laceration Spectral Wound – A Diabolic Thirst Cryptospital – Scythe of the Black Death Këkht Aräkh – Pale Swordsman Escotrilihum – Dy’th Requiem for the Serpent Telepath Antichrist Siege Machine – Purifying Blade Albionic Hermeticism – Psalms to the Father Cult of Eibon – Black Flame Dominion Krolok – Funeral Winds & Crimson Sky Death Metal Frozen Soul – Crypt of Ice Outre-Tombe – Abysse Mortifere Worm – Foreverglade Cerebral Rot – Execretion of Mortality Malignant Altar – Realms of Exquisite Morbidity Vomit Spell – Vomit Spell Nekromantheon – Visions of Trismegistos Genocide Pact – Genocide Pact In Between Sarke – Allsighr Mork - Katedralen Apsu – Apsu Iron Maiden – Senjutsu Ophiuchi – Shibboleth Darkthrone – Eternal Hails Craven Idol – Forked Tongues Apostasy – Death Return Poison Ruiin – Poison Ruiin Mastodon – Hushed & Grim EPs Escotrilihum - Urionhsol (Seven Demons) Ancient Mastery – The Chosen One Kaldeket – Vitiae Ancestral Shadows – Eldritch Illuminations Enslaved – Caravans to the Outer Worlds Lamp of Murmur – Punishment and Devotion dai-ichi/Lamp of Murmur – Virgin Womb of Eternal Black Terror Rope Sect – Proskynesis Witch Vomit – Abhorrent Rapture 20-11 20 – Iron Maiden – Senjutsu 19 – Phrenelith – Chimera 18 – Frozen Soul – Crypt of Ice 17 – Cryptospital – Scythe of the Black Death 16 – Warloghe – Three Angled Void 15 – Antichrist Siege Machine – Purifying Blade 14 – Albionic Hermeticism – Psalms to the Father 13 – Sarke – Allsighr 12 – Rope Sect – Proskynesis 11 – Starer – 18” Below the Horizon - late year discovery that could have easily been in the top 10. 10-1 10 – Clandestine Blaze – Secrets of Laceration - if you don't know what you're getting from Mikko at this point, I'm not sure what to tell you. Probably the best thing he's ever put out, and that says a lot. Just a wee bit better than the new Warloghe in my opinion, but if you like legit old school Finnblack from the masters, don't sleep on either. 9 – Escotrilihum – Dy’th Requiem for the Serpent Telepath - freaky, weird, progressive black metal from France (pronounced Fraunse). This dude has been fairly prolific over the past 3 years. Not quite as good as Eternity of Shaog, but not far off. 8 – Darkthrone – Eternal Hails - it's fucking Darkthrone. They could release a Madonna cover album and I'd buy it. I dig the direction they've been going with the past 2 albums. 7 – Ophiuchi – Shibboleth - a little more coherent of an album than Bifurcaria Bifurcata (a deeply unsettling album - would make a great horror movie soundtrack). This one is a bit doomier. Some of the riffs are a bit "congested" or overlapped which gives them a unique sound. One of my most listened too albums for 2021. 6 – Worm – Foreverglade - old school Florida death metal worship with a twist. The best straight DM album of 2021. 5 – Archgoat – Worship the Eternal Darkness - c'mon. Anyone that has been around me on forums over the years had to know the ultimate goat(s) would show up on my top 10. Not as strong as The Luciferian Crown (my #1 of 2019), but filled with mid-tempo satan worshipping goodness. 4 – Lamp of Murmur – Submission and Slavery - narrowly edged out for the 3 spot. The mix of styles here really sets this album apart from his earlier work. M appears on my list 3 times this year and each entry is worth your listening time. This one, however, is far and away the best. Reminiscent of some of the genre mixing from Wagner Ödegård's Om Kosmos Och De Tolv Järtekn (an excellent album from 2020 in case you missed it). 3 – Spectral Wound – A Diabolic Thirst - ferocious face-melting black metal from the frozen wasteland of Quebec. Easily the best thing released on this continent in 2021. I've yet to hear anything from these boys that didn't make me want to carve a pentagram into my forearm and worship the dark lord to. 2 – Mork - Katedralen - riffs on riffs on riffs. When I put this album on, I feel like I'm 16 cruising in my car listening to classic Van Halen. The volume knob can't go high enough. If the boys from Finland hadn't released one this year, this would be at number 1. Just an all-around banger. 1 – Circle of Ouroboros – Kiromantia - a return to a previous more black metal sound. Still elements of psychedelia and post-punk from the previous decade or so of releases. You never get the same album twice from these boys, and I haven't heard one I didn't like. So there you have it, the Circle of Ouroboros boys reign supreme for 2021 followed very closely by a banging Mork album. Lots to look forward to in the new year like a new Immolation, maybe possibly that new DAWN that was teased as being mixed over the summer, a new one from my fave USBM act Demoncy, a rumored new Negative Plane, I'm sure there will be more. Let's just hope the COVID holds off long enough we can get a few more festivals in before we all die.
Hey guys! My name is Todd from Ontario, Canada and I've just released my first full-length solo album, Decide! I go by the name Acydia and you can find my music anywhere music is available! I've posted some links below and would love for you to give it a listen! It is a concept album, so listening front to back would be the best! I've posted a YouTube link to one of my favourites though, just to give you a taste of it all. Though I have been describing it as basically “heavy metal”, it has elements of groove metal, metalcore and experimental. If you pick up on any other sub-genres, I would love to hear them! All music and lyrics written by me. I performed/programmed/recorded all instruments and vocals myself and mixed and mastered the entire album as well. This really is a TRUE solo project! (Other than the guest vocals on Track 11) Have a listen! Please enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIuQ6zusTg8&list=OLAK5uy_lUgXp9xZ27XUtidLeUkUQBqSobAS0Pxzo&index=6 https://acydia.bandcamp.com https://open.spotify.com/album/0ypeHFfL0AAI3B1pEsC0KX https://music.apple.com/us/album/decide/1556888230 Socials: https://facebook.com/AcydiaOfficial/ https://www.instagram.com/acydiaofficial/
Hey Everyone, This is a small part of a four year plan, so thanks for being here to enjoy it. We're a couple of guys that enjoy our metal, but felt something was lacking so we decided to put our hats in the ring. Everything we showcase is produced in-house. We've put a lot of time and effort into getting things set up and we're learning things like animation as we go, it's a huge learning curve, so we really appreciate you checking us out. Hopefully you can share in some of the fun we've had creating this along the way. It's fair to say we're not going to be releasing short 2-3min tracks, we're aiming to inject some anthemics back into metal so if that's not for you, we totally understand. However, if you're a fan of all things epic, heavy, progressive, groovy and sometimes downright filthy, then we feel we've definitely got you covered! The schedule is ideally releasing a fresh new monster track, every two months with updates and behind the scenes as we go. It's also worth mentioning we totally know our limits, and with that in mind if you think you can help us out in any way at all then please get in contact we'd love to hear from you! Really, please get in contact, whether you can offer rendering help, ideas for videos, feature solos on music, promotion, whatever you can think of we'd love to collaborate with other like minded people! Please like, comment, share, and subscribe to keep that finger on the pulse. -Stay Focused- W4RM3CH4N1C & REVENANT Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/BeseechTheScars Twitter: https://twitter.com/BeseechTheScars Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BeseechTheScars Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/beseech-the-scars Bandcamp https://beseechthescars1.bandcamp.com/
