Give In To Your Anger

We've had the Crushing and we've had the Dark, Harrowing and Ravaging, now it's time for the Anger. This list could be seen as a sort of Dance of the Dregs from those other two lists (as in albums that didn't get on either), but some of these albums to me might be classified as either or neither.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
3. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
4. Alkerdeel - Morinde
5. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro

The Best Of Dissonant Metal

Do not be fooled with the title. This is not a "best of ..." or " a guide to..." type of list. I've chosen this title because its better than "mz's favorite dissonant metal albums". I've noticed that albums with dissonant elements tend to cater to my taste and by dissonance, I do not mean the literal meaning of especial arrangement of notes discussed in theoretic music courses. Rather, I use this term as it has became a proper convention in metal communities when it comes to describing certain bands that often have a very especial avantgarde approach. These are albums which I find interesting in this field.
One album per band, with the exception of those bands that have albums which are vastly different in sounds. In the other words, I've put two BAN albums here.
Recommendations are encouraged and more than welcomed.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Altars - Paramnesia
3. AMNIS NIHILI - Christological Escalation
4. Antediluvian - λόγος
5. Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn

XIII

Best (the rest, and the worst) of 2013 (thus far).
Partially ordered (the ones with descriptions).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

The curtain call to another fascinating year for metal beckons. Far from disappointing, 2013 is marked by some outstanding releases from various genres, many of whom excelled well beyond expectations. A pretty diverse and intense outing has yielded a very large number of albums to this list, a fact that I take heart from, especially from the more unknown ones from both MS and outside, as many of the obscure findings have truly caught me by surprise. All in all, it has been good fun finding and listening to awesome and diverse music, from both inside and outside of my comfort zone. Lastly, a special thank you to everyone who helped making the list better, with corrections and recommendations and whatever else, and those who made their appreciation felt in one way or the other, as well as other list makers, from whom I siphoned stuff up from time to time.

1. Ulcerate - Vermis
2. The Monolith Deathcult - Tetragrammaton
3. Persefone - Spiritual Migration
4. Witherscape - The Inheritance
5. Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

!J.O.O.E.!'s___!2.0.1.3.!___!F.A.V.O.U.R.I.T.E.S.!

Wasn't intending to bother with any more lists but even with Spotify I'm having trouble keeping track of everything I like, so this list is purely for recording very good stuff, not even decent stuff I think is ok. Just 8 scores and above.

Added as I find new stuff, not in order of preference.

1. The Meads of Asphodel - Sonderkommando
2. Wormlust - The Feral Wisdom
3. Tribulation - The Formulas Of Death
4. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
5. Portal - Vexovoid

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
