A collection of my personal favorite death metal, melo-death, blackened death and deathrash albums. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly so remember to stop by every so often!

The ★ signifies an album that is borderline perfect. Can you find them all?

2. Abnormality - Contaminating The Hive Mind
3. Aborted - Goremageddon: The Saw And The Carnage Done
4. Abramelin - Abramelin

MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
3. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
4. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
5. Reverence - The Asthenic Ascension

2012's SILVERfox-compatible METAL WIP

Another year, another favourites of the year list... But hopefully this will be more complete than the previous years ones. Rather than making a massive list of everything I have listened to, I'll be as selective as possible. I've only started listening to 2012 releases since February, so I'll be playing catch up throughout the year as my time is limited. I've only gone through 556 releases this year properly as of 07/01/2013, so the list can only expand! If you feel strongly about certain albums released this year and it's not here, be sure to leave a comment! Feel free to make a list that's exactly the same =P

1. CSSABA - Underground Lo-Fi Songs
2. Indesinence - Vessels Of Light And Decay
3. Monolithe - Interlude Second
4. Nadja - The Primitive World
5. In The Silence - A Fair Dream Gone Mad

Favorite Albums Of 2012

Well another year went by so it is time for me to make a list of ALL my favorite releases this year. I didn't exactly keep up with every underground or main stream release for that matter. I didn't even hear all that many new albums this year. Pretty much, What you see is what I bought. However I had just enough to make an adequate list. I think I at least nailed all the heavy hitters anyway. Feel free to message me about the things I missed that I NEED to hear. Enjoy!

1. Napalm Death - Utilitarian
2. Cannibal Corpse - Torture
3. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
4. Aborted - Global Flatline
5. Pig Destroyer - Book Burner

2012: Towards The Megalist

I'm (sorta) back. *The Finishing Touches* OKAY, so obviously not as much stuff from the last half of the year as the first. Sorry guys, but that first six months nearly killed me. Some stuff as a result will be missing, but major stuff not present is stuff I probably didn't care for. Alrighty then, enough with the "stuff"...

1. Bound by Entrails - The Stars Bode You Farewell
2. Royal Thunder - CVI
3. Akphaezya - Anthology IV: The Tragedy of Nerak
4. Dissona - Dissona
5. Anhedonist - Netherwards

Playing To My Strengths: Facing Death And Its Technicalities

What to expect; incredibly challenging and technically-proficient death metal, or death metal noted for stifling and dense atmospheric prevalence, or both, that may or may not be traversable in one go. Listener's discretion is advised.

Many albums featured here may borrow elements from other genres (prog, thrash, melodeath, grindcore, post, etc.), but the dominant stench of complexity-laden death metal is forever present, and so deserve to be mentioned here.

1. Decapitated - Winds Of Creation
2. Nile - Annihilation Of The Wicked
3. Necrophagist - Onset Of Putrefaction
4. Obscura - Cosmogenesis
5. Gorod - A Perfect Absolution
