Regarding #10 - #6:

#10 Didn't spend enough time with it this year, but liked what I heard.
#9 Loved it.
#8 Didn't listen to it.
#7 Loved it.
#6 Tried it, but it just didn't work for me. Too slow and ultra-funeral for my taste.
Glad you're enjoying it!

I didn't comment on it because I did indeed straight up miss it. I'm pretty intrigued by the description and the strength of these compliments. Gonna have to add that to my to-download list.
Do do that. CVI is one of the best retro-sounding bands to come it recently.

Thanks. And yeah, I can see your point, but it's hard not to throw the funeral label on there. There's still plenty of funeral doom aspects on The Giant.

I'll be posting the Top 5 shortly! Thanks for tuning in guys.
12/7 Bell Witch (?)
1/23 Bosse-De-Nage
2/3 GY!BE
