Stumbling Through 2023

Thumbs up: +1
Did a terrible job last year at compiling lists, which I guess isn't the worst thing that could happen. Let's see how 2023 goes. Will absolutely be playing around with included info/ratings and no commitments to remembering this thing exists later.
Ratings based on potential repeat listens, with 7 being whatever threshold makes sense to me in that moment. Consistency is key, after all.

1. Rye - В​с​ё
(7.5) [ambient black/funeral doom] [Russia] Atmospheric and somber. Трехногая Слава does a lot for me.
2. The Canyon Observer - Figura
(7.5) [atmospheric sludge/post-metal] [Slovenia] Chaotic, anxious, jazzy, wild.
3. Vale Of Amonition - Immortalizing The Lugubrious, Or Those Of Evolving Despair
(7.0) [progressive doom] [Uganda] Interesting lyrics hold this up nicely.
4. Ὁπλίτης - Ψ​ε​υ​δ​ο​μ​έ​ν​η
(7.0) [progressive black] [China] Greek-inspired Chinese one-man band. Quite a mouthful.
5. Iravu - A Fate Worse Than Home
(6.5) [atmospheric black] [Malaysia] Fantastic storytelling and mission but music doesn't really hit me.
6. Thy Darkened Shade - Liber Lvcifer II: Mahapralaya
(6.0) [black] [Greece] Interesting use of invocations as lyrics but does little for me. Bass sound is nice though.
7. Great Cold Emptiness - Immaculate Hearts Will Triumph
(6.0) [atmospheric black/funeral doom] [U.S.] Doesn't deviate much from formula, minus last couple of minutes.
