Invention of the Shipwreck

29:38-33:38

Melancholia

0:25-8:40
TVAER (MN)
IV
— Wicked black metal is integrated seamlessly with emotionally wrenching acoustic and melody.

9:40-17:13
GUTVOID (CAN)
Murmurations From Twilight Bodies

17:54-26:15
PANOPTICON (MN)
Rope Burn Exit
— Minnesota tells a story of a massive starry sky and aggro men in black hoods raising a fist to it.

26:51-33:09

Conveyer Line

WRECHE (Oakland)
Mysterium
— One man’s mad brain offers experimental black metal with a lot of piano and no guitar.

42:05-48:00
VIOLET COLD (Azerbaijan)
Togetherness
— Thanks to my buddy Donovan for pointing out this album. They have always been a strange meld of black gaze, electronic and a lot of emo, which becomes touching. Great new album.

GRAVE MIASMA (UK)
Rogyapa

0:25-7:50
GREY AURA (Netherlands)
El Greco in Toledo
— First a duo, now a truly wild trio. Moody psychedelic black metal, ethnic instrumentals, a bit of aggressive hardcore and jazz. Has a bit of Imperial Triumphant without the death metal. The whole journey is spectacular.

9:08-13:25
HUMAN FAILURE (AU)
Crown on the Head of a King of Mud
— 1-person Australian barrage of off-center death with the best noise vocals and feedback screams. Monstrous in this incredibly satisfying way.

13:53-19:10
VREID (Norway)
Into the Mountains
— Best part was the use of melody. Organic post-metal builds into an epic black metal and surprising genre switches that I won’t name – what a blast. You can lose your brain in it.

19:35-24:35
FEED THEM DEATH (London)
Eulogic (Negative Dialektik)
— Yes, feed us the weird. Snarling sludge, mechanical grind, disturbing electronics and sometimes plodding pace leaves you scratchy.

25:14-33:07
ORYX (Denver)
Last Breath
— Metal heads understand the need for meditation. Oryx uses drone, instrumentals, melodic and repetition mixed with sludge and doom and a set of fucking hot vocals.

33:27-39:20
ODAL (Germany)
...um Ewiges zu schaffen
— Germanic black metal and their drama. This is in supplication to Mother Nature with folk and heavy metal influence.

39:42-45:49
SIGIL (CAN)
Vessels
— Another proggy turn in black metal that keeps it fresh with hardcore aggression.

46:52-52:58
HADIT (Italy)
The Submission of Rage for Propulsion Divine
— Oppressive is the gift from this duo. Distorted, meandering, explosive and just weighty. You know, f’n heavy.

53:24-END
MALUM (Finland)
Devil's Creation
— Finnish vocals is a weapon in a raw Satanic black metal with cool keyboard effects.

0:25-3:49
CRYPTS OF DESPAIR (Lithuania)
Condemned To Life
— Vocal extremes, hurricane of death noise and crushing beat with an underlying melancholy. A powerhouse of an album.

5:07-9:07
ALTARAGE (Spain)
Forja
— Sinister, meditative drone pace builds to a cacophony, with pockets of grind and sludge and death chugging. Runner-up up in my Best of 2016, and another hit.

9:47-14:14
THE ARMED (Detroit)
Average Death
— 90’s-esque indie blended to modernity with a Converge-textural hardcore, industrial and synth, and pop. 19 musicians include some famous ones.

14:34-19:08
DESOLATE REALM (Finland)
Spire
— 2-piece heavy metal includes all the good stuff, including a jamming guitar, breaks into ballads, and a heavy dose of headbanging.

19:23-25:03
DEATHTRIPPERS (UK)
Unity of light
— Lovely goth vocals in a richly melodic and romantic electronic dark wave.

25:50-33:29
SPECTRAL LORE (Greece)
Initiation Into The Mystery
— Last year’s split with Mare Cognitum led to this chaotic, beautiful, abstract and ethnic black metal.

33:55-40:33
BONES OF THE EARTH (Arkansas)
Machine Rising
— The unexpected galaxy-driven compositions took me out of what I was listening to. Already a unique mix of doom, proggy sludge, droning guitars, and chomping hardcore

40:55-42:24
BONE CUTTER (San Jose)
Sea of Broken Needs
— 2 thumbs-up to the song titles. Short and sweet crushing grindcore and death that is unexpectedly charming.

42:53-48:57
UNGFELL (Switzerland)
Tyfels Antlitz (Wie e Huerä zwei Chind empfanget)
— Just picture these dudes in Heidi-pigtails on a Swiss countryside singing their fantasy medieval and orchestral black metal. .

49:55-53:57
CICADA THE BURROWER (Madison)
Where Old Crystals Grow
— Shimmering with sharp waves right under the surface. Meandering jazz meets raw aggression. All proceeds off this record go to the ACLU, yah!

54:40-END
PAYSAGE d’HIVER (Switzerland)
Wärzä
— Paysage d’Hiver’s “Wanderer” continues to explore an alien world. A shorter album than last year’s stunner, but still a raw biting wind.
