Ah. December. The time of year when all music related websites are putting up their favorite albums of 2016. I am going to be releasing my 2016 black metal list here on December 26th, as well as other lists on Headbang or GTFO. I have honestly been just listening to previous albums non stop for the past 2 weeks and have not listened to anything new, that is why I did not post a From The Void last week. However, I want you all to get involved and tell me what YOUR favorite releases are of 2016. It can be genre specific or wide open. I would love to hear what your favorite releases of 2016 are. Leave a comment below and tell me which albums are your favorite and let’s start a discussion on the music of the year shall we? I’ll get started with 1 or 2 below.
Probably one of my favorite releases of the year in general but definitely one of my favorites within the genre, this saddening display of depressive black metal had me coming back for more ever since it’s initial release. I just could not get enough of the beautiful compositions found on this album. The emotive lyrics and grand vocal work would often get me to tear up, especially with the song “Womb of Emptiness”. An incredibly emotional roller coaster ride of an album.
Holy monkey balls this album is incredible. The song writing is intense, the vocals are neat and the guitar tone is out of this world! The tone on the guitar solos reminds me of last years Sarpanitum album “Blessed Be My Brothers”. Which just so happens to be one of my favorite albums of 2015. On Strange Loops is one hell of a death metal album. A must listen to.
So there are a couple of my favorites. Again, I’ll be posting a black metal list here but I will be posting 3 more lists on Headbang or GTFO. Those being death metal, metal and …….synth. Yes synth. So let’s start a conversation here. Leave a comment on our Facebook page too! See you again soon.
