9.0
There's been a lot of blackened death craziness being served up lately in our beloved metal genre. Within the past two years especially, it seems like the style has been seeing a return to form of sorts, with the likes of Bölzer, Teitanblood, Diocletian and others dishing out albums that are pleasantly old school, yet with a delicious modern twist. Of all these bands, however, it is probably Belgium's Emptiness who stand as the most immersing and emotive of them all. Their 2014 album encapsulates this idea perhaps better than ever before, and is nothing short of excellent.

Probably the most likely candidate for album of the year.

Interesting. It's a great album, but I think there are about ~10 albums that are better from this year. I'm sure you can guess what my aoty is so far

Is the only album this year I've heard that feels truly fresh to me. A lot of bands are cottoning on to the whole dissonant thing and it's getting a bit old and predictable, even if they are well done (TGOO for example: very good but about 2 years or so too late). This has the benefit of being something I can't compare anything else to, as well as being extremely enjoyable to listen to, and perhaps most importantly an album that sits at the back of my mind as something I don't fully get yet.

While there are other great albums this year, they tend to exemplify existing ideas, whereas this album feels like a subversion of ideas, almost as though a deconstruction of black and death metal. Being something without actually being something is one the highest accolades I can ascribe and not many bands pull it off (Lurker of Chalice, Murmuüre etc)

  I think Joe said something about Ævangelist's new album to be superior than this one. Why so flowerly at this moment?!

It was K7's twin brother saying that, so ignore

Btw I wonder if the upcoming Aevangelist has already leaked. Will be giving it a first spin later tonight.

If it has that's the first I've heard about it, so no idea what K7-2 is talking about.

Release is scheduled for somewhere during the seoncd half of September and promos have been sent around, but that's it as far as I know.

I think Alex Fenger put me on to the their 2012 album which was really good. Thing is I'm not 100% sure it was that album as the name and album cover is really generic but it sounds like it. It was a good album, just overshadowed by Aevangelist.

Rating: 8 Why doesn't this appear in the top 20 of 2014? I thought the required number of votes was 20. Is it 50 now?

Also, once it gets to the top 20, the rating will drop sharply as butthurt AtG and Insomnium fans hit it.

Soooo, I don't think there is a great rush to make the band visible (all it needs is a biography which, imo, is stupid)

Oh no I'm not the kind to want this or that band to make it to the top. I laugh at the people who manipulate votes to make a change in the annual top20. I just looked at the rating and wondered if the rules had changed.
Also, I remember reading something about the bio not being mandatory anymore. But I might be wrong again. Maybe an activation request for this has already been sent.

It says that the logo is not mandatory but the bio is. At least, that's what this says

A coded bio is not necessary for a band to be activated, although it is a nice aesthetic bonus.

Found what I was thinking of, one of DT's posts. I'm sorry, this just meant that the code wasn't necessary. My memory just failed me and I thought the whole thing was no longer required.

Rating: 9 Fuckerdy fuckerdy fuck this album gets creepier with every subsequent listen. As if Marc Dutroux himself opens up his dungeons for all of us to have a peek into.

DAAAAAAAAAMN!

This is some unique stuff, is one of those bands that have their own sound, and I really like this!
Already ordered it on vinyl, because, fuck it, I need it haha
!J.O.O.E.! - 18.11.2014 at 03:35  
Rating: 9 I'm more than convinced that is the album of the year, It's almost subversive in its ability to persuade people of its brilliance. I'm also drunk so maybe make up your own mind.

Rating: 9 The vocalist reminds me a lot of Attila Csihar.
