Jan 4, 2012

January is Top Metal Bands of 2011 month.  This show has my #2 pick + top 2011 albums; next week will have my #1 pick + top 2011 albums.  I talk a lot on this show, after each song, so too bad.

INTRO (0-0:27)

Opaque Reflections: Brainoil (0:28-4:22)

(Sludgy band from Oakland)

 

Giant: Enslaved (5:55-12:32)

(Cute Norwegian band that has the best recordings)

 

Prepare the Ground: YOB (12:56-21:57)

(Love this band, touring with Tool, acoustic album by Mike soon)

 

Withered Hand Of Evil: Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats (22:50-28:43)

(70’s psychedelia from England)

 

Cold World: Thou (29:59-35:42)

(Prolific band, atmospheric that bashes your head in)

 

Cataract: Dawnbringer(36:23-39:28)

(Chicago band that never plays live; Nucleus is a must-have)

 

Leaves: Totimoshi (40:26-44:33)

(Best album by Toti yet, best touring band, guest vocals by Dale/Brent/Scott from Melvins/Mastodon/Neurosis)

 

Uusi olento nousee: Oranssi Pazuzu (45:07-50:26)

(Incredibly diverse album from Finland)

 

 Cleaver Of Souls: Skeletonwitch (51:02-54:47)

(Charismatic live and recorded)

 

 And for my # 2 album of the year: Graveyard with Hisingen Blues

No Good, Mr Holden: Graveyard (55:37-end)

(I listen to this album everyday.  It is jammy and 70’s retro, and yeah, I didn’t pick a brutal band to win this spot.  I will see them play on January 13th at Middle East)

 

Listen to next week’s show to round out the top albums of the year! I will announce my #1 album of the year!
