0:25-6:45
KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS (Germany)
— A frenzied, sinister abstraction of death and black metal by highly intelligent alien beings that create chaos and melody.

7:39-12:29
ASEITAS (Portland)
— Angry lurching of different compositional styles within modern death and meditation that breaks into tense noise.

12:46-20:40
VÄKI (Finland)
— A layered doomy black metal collection building from Finnish screams and increasing tempo. So. Hot.

21:00-25:43
XYTHLIA (MN)
— One-man project also of Ashbringer creating a centrifuge of chaos and extreme vocals, the entirety is breathtaking.

26:43-30:41
KINGNOMAD (Sweden)
— A poppier version of retro prog rock from Sweden, with a sweet vocalist and old school keyboards.

31:12-44:45
CONVOCATION (Finland)
— Depressive and bleak, but don’t let that define it. This is gold at the end of a rainbow, be patient. The vocalist creates depth and rage. Immerse yourself in it.

45:34-49:43
KOMMAND (CA)
— Steam rises from the lava heat of the vocalist and the filthy death machine of this debut album.

50:07-54:18
YSENGRIN (France)
— Throaty devilish thoughts from a French vampire within minimalist occult with folk and keyboard. Weird.

54:42-END
MYSTRAS (Greece)
— A-world-that-is-lost razor-thin black metal, with hints of ethnic folk instrumentation.

0:25-4:51
COUCH SLUT (Brooklyn)
I'm 14
— The band name, the vocalist, the attitude, all of it is just cooler than the rest. She pours herself in this sound of aggressive, bleak reality. Wield that sword.

5:45-13:01
SERMENT (CAN)
Flamme Hivernale
— An epic, dynamic, heart-wrenching black metal storm filled with the devil. And your butt.

13:31-17:00
REBEL WIZARD (AU)
the mind is not your friend
— This guy is emperor of song titles, so much so that I awarded my Best Song Names in 2018. He dives into the unique and blows out in high pitched noise, heavy metal, black metal and industrial. It is just eccentric madness, Aussie style.

17:26-26:32
BATTLE DAGORATH (USA/Switz)
Twilight of the Cold Sun
— You are not stuck in your house. You can travel to Battle Dagorath’s inky black galaxy and drift out into their dreams with ripples of guitar and building meditative dissonance.

27:10-29:30
SKELETON (Austin)
Skeleton
— Romping riffs under a hot summer sky with a seething acidic underbelly. Remember Scorpion Child from Austin? This has nothing to do with that, but they rocked also, in this sort of hot bbq summer rock sort of sound. Completely different, but you know, really similar.

30:00-37:46
M.S.W. (OR)
Humanity
— This really hit my bleeding, big, awesome, incredible heart. Give it a chance, let it wash over your brittle soul. A beautiful slow-burner.

38:17-43:44
STATIQBLOOM (Brooklyn)
Black Lava
— This new album has incorporated an evil ambient atmosphere in the perfect drops of hot-blooded industrial beat and rhythm.

44:10-51:54
MYRIDIAN (AU)
Babylon
— Wait for the clean vocals, it is done so well. I am such a snob when it comes to clean stuff, and this is the perfect balance, along with the usual death growls and high-pitched screech. A wide ranging melodic death with beautiful instrumentation, including piano.

53:12-57:39
WANDERER (Portugal)
Force Of Ancient Steel
— Let's swing our hips wide to the groove of Portugal's Wanderer, straight-forward speed, made for you to punch holes in the sky. Simply loveable.

57:55-END
BARGHEST (Baton Rouge)
Nomadic Plague
— I’ve played this band multiple times over the years, and they are still a beast of snarling, filthy, gargled black metal. So sweet.

0:25-7:43
HAIL SPIRIT NOIR (Greece)
The First Ape on New Earth
— In my Best of 2016 list, what a wonderful second album of carnival psychedelic black metal and prog. Bubbling in my heart and turning it black from the inside. Sweet and wicked.

8:55-15:02
INEXORUM (MN)
The Breaking Point
— In my Best of 2018, this black metal musician is inspired by his wild Minnesota surroundings. His muscular death vocals are a great juxtaposition for the chilling desperate emotional romantic black metal. Let me bathe in the moonlit lake he is crooning to. So hot.

15:29-22:56
DESCEND (Sweden)
Blood Moon
— This 3rd album is jammed with a blast of a range, from death to haunting doom to prog and various instrumentation. Oh you Swedish devils with the juicy riffs, it is in their blood. This is a joy from beginning to end.

23:44-29:29
CANIS DIRUS (MN)
We Are The Ancient Ones
— Another Minnesota gem where the men wear beards and howl at the moon. The sound is scattered debris of forlorn with the stark brutality of the vocalist, a surprising gentle acoustic and heavy metal solos that remind us of what we love. METAL.

30:06-35:41
LANTERN (Finland)
Shrine of Revelation
— Finnish and their amazingly guttural vocals that automatically launch their sound to malevolence naturally. You think it is this mean death, but these bands are really pummeling us with surprises, packages to unfold and delight.

36:03-40:19
WORSHIPPER (MA)
Lonesome Boredom Overdrive
— Their 2019 album was playing in my house last week and I randomly checked on their bandcamp, and they had a newly released single. It didn’t fit in their 2019 album, and they wanted to release it finally – the song title fitting to our times. They have the best warm retro vocalist.

40:57-40:37
LJOSAZABOJSTWA (Belarus)
Idzi I Hliadzi
— These little parts of the world where influence is from afar. The Finnish, the Estonians, and now Belarusians. It just thrashes in all directions, heavy metal and doom and riffs and punk pace. And then they throw in the neck churning riffs to make you clap. Thank you sirs.

51:46-56:01
BLOOD STRONGHOLD (AU/Poland)
Unbowed Wolves
— Maybe you don’t have the stomach for a 2-piece raw black metal that spins out to minimal after dabbling in the massive storms of layered ethereal melodies.

56:25-END
LIVING GATE (Belgium)
Living Gate
— You’ve got to expect big things from members of Oathbreaker, Amenra, Wiegedood and YOB. Bright, brutal, ferocious death metal. Simple.

0:25-4:54
DIABOLIC OATH (Portland)
Apocryphal Manifestations
— Portland is kicking it up a notch with death rumbling riffs, a baritone vocal gust and wicked twists of guitar.

5:41-11:35
ACHERONTAS (Greece)
The Brazen Experimentalist
— Trippy, strange, evocative Greek black metal with breaks into dreamy guitar.

11:58-17:01
VOIDCEREMONY (CA)
Binded to Unusual Existence
— Debut of jangled angles of guitar compositions and drums sewing tight compositions. The exhaustion is somehow relaxing.

17:30-22:53
CREATURE (France)
Neo Habilis
— Plaintive piano, trombone and flutes build an ache within fist-pumping almost djent-influenced icy black metal, and a hot vocalist that whispers sweet nothings in French. Quite the trip.

23:14-28:16
PURTENANCE (Finland)
The Malicious Moon
— Old school death done Finnish style with added filth and sludge creating a hurricane of neck churning headbangs.

29:07-34:41
DESSIDERIUM (AZ)
Sage In Yearning
— Tech melodic-proggy-symphonic death with a spectrum of vocals. One man project, also plays in Nullingroots.

35:13-38:37
THÆTAS (NYC)
Dearth
— NYC technical death debut lurches drunkenly until gaining momentum to a muscular monster devouring and spitting out carcasses.

39:00-43:55
CARACH ANGREN (Netherlands)
Der Vampir von Nurnberg
— Thanks for taking us out of our heads dudes.

44:45-47:39
PYRRHON (NY)
Human Capital
— Best of 2017 Pyrrhon stays brutal angular death and grind with lyrical poetry.

48:21-55:25
NEPTUNIAN MAXIMALISM (EU)
To The Moon ZÂR - Empowering The Phurba Éon Phanérozoïque
— Thanks Rohan @manvsplaylist for introducing this, and has a massive write-up: https://www.heaviestofart.com/post/a-palette-of-sonic-radiance-neptunian-maximalism-eons-review. Meditation meets explosion and requires a lifetime of unpacking.

55:57-END
PAYSAGE D'HIVER (Switzerland)
Kaelteschauer
— Such a weird album – each song starts the same, which makes sense, as the point is to deaden your senses to help make the spiritual journey easier.
