Thanks, man. I really appreciate you and everyone checking it out. Well, to put it in perspective, I listened to a little over 160 albums when I made this thread, so that puts Subrosa in the top 10%. At the end of the day though, I'm just more of a extreme metal guy, so those albums usually win out.
Also, fuck, I completely forgot. This is the album that goes at number 1 on my "Albums that would've made the list if I'd heard them sooner" list. It'd easily be in my top 20.
Cultes Des Ghoules - Henbane
Like a mixture of old horror movies and black metal, but somehow not cheesy in the least bit. Best black metal album of the year behind Inquisition and Agrimonia.
