As with every other music blog or publication, we at Svbterranean are obligated to give you our silly opinions on what were the top albums of the year. I could list every single release I enjoyed this year, but I am limited on patience and writing ability. So, I was able to narrow it down to a modest 30. These are records that, not limited to just metal and hardcore either, that stuck with me long after the initial listen. Feel free to peruse the list below and tell me how my opinion is bullshit, because I will probably agree with you.
The Body – No One Deserves Happiness
With the release of I Shall Die Here and their slew of recent collaborations, The Body has somehow gotten even more experimental with their already experimental style of noise/metal/whatever by straying into catchier, even poppier territory. The interesting combination of noisy, yet highly structured songwriting as well as frequent collaborator Chrissy Wolpert’s sung vocals mixing with Chip King’s signature distorted howls in the background reinforces that feeling of genres intermingling, but also creates something new and original.
Post-hardcore outfit Planes Mistaken for Stars have premiered their highly-anticipated new album, Prey, at Noisey. The album will officially be released this Friday, October 21, via Deathwish Inc and can be purchased here. The album picks up where 2006’s Mercy left off and show the band coming out swinging with their caustic blend of driving rhythms, hypnotic hooks and fierce grit. Check it out now.
Post-hardcore quartet Planes Mistaken for Stars have premiered a new track from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Prey, over at Stereogum. The new track is titled “Riot Season” and it features all of the propulsive rhythms and intricate, infectious riffs and melodies that the band is known for. Vocalist/guitarist Gared O’Donnell commented on the song:
