Notable releases of 2013

Posted in Music on 10:53, December 23rd, 2013


The time has come to list the releases that impressed me during the year of 2013. This is another year that was spent under the sign of metal with occasional nods to my old faves from the other genres. Note that it’s not necessary that all of them released in 2013. It turned to be quite big, but I can’t just squeeze everything into the silly number 10. List sorted by the time of arrival. So, here goes:

Genocide Shrines – ”Devanation Monumentemples”.
Heresiarch – “Hammer Of Intransigence”.
Grave Miasma – “Exalted Emanaton”.
Wrathprayer – “The Sun Of Moloch: The Sublimation Of Sulphur’s Essence Which Spawned Death And Life”.
Sinistrous Diabolus – “Total Doom Desecration”.
Vassafor – “Obsidian Codex”.
Сultes des Ghoules – “Henbane”.
Grave Upheaval MLP with the same title (demos), and split with US Manticore LP.
Void Meditation Cult – “Sulfurous prayers of blight and darkness”.
Ogdru Jahad – “I”.
Moss – “Horrible Night”.
Aosoth – “IV Arrow In Heart”.
Bolzer – “Aura”.
Portal – “Vexovoid”.
Wardruna -”Yggdrasil”.
The Ruins Of Beverast – “Blood Vaults – The Blazing Gospel Of Heinrich Kramer”.
The Ruins Of Beverast – “Foulest Semen Of A Sheltered Elite”.
Impetuous Ritual – “Relentless Execution Of Ceremonial Excrescence”.
Grave Miasma – “Odori Sepulcrorum”.
Grave Upheaval with untitled full length of 2013.

Last Solstice

Posted in Music on 13:16, December 10th, 2013

The end of the year is nigh and I’m getting last packages of music. This time it’s Nocturno Culto’s Gift Of Gods – “Receive” mini LP, Gehenna – “WW” and Ghost – “If You Have Ghost” miniLP. While the first two proved to be awesome releases, it seems that I’m ending it up with Ghost as it turned totally into commercial pop and ceased to be interesting. Now I’m just waiting for the last package to arrive from IBP then I’ll make traditional top of the year post.
