Well, now that the resident crazyperson has asked, I guess I actually have to finish this thing.

But seriously, I've been almost completely out of the loop for a while recently, and on the first day I come back to the forum to check out how things are going, this thread gets bumped after several weeks of inactivity.

I'm taking it as a sign.

(Plus, if I start now and do like four or five per day, I can finish it before the year is halfway through. )

At this point do you even remember what order everything was in.

The sad part is, I've had the finalized list in a spreadsheet since before the first of the year. The only thing I haven't had the time to do is post all of the damn mini-reviews (partly due to the fact that I actually listen to each album again while I'm writing, so the review actually makes sense to how I feel about the album and not my distant memory of it).

So the short answer is, "yes".

46. Rwake - Rest

So as I mentioned in my hint, I’ve been trying to like Rwake for a while now, and their 2011 release finally did it for me. Maybe it was the extra touch of the well-placed atmospheric parts in between the crushing parts, or maybe it was the creative use of things like acoustic guitar here and there, or maybe nothing at all has changed about this band’s sound and I was simply in a better mood or a more open frame of mind when I listened to it, but one way or another, this album managed to not only capture but also hold my interest for many repeated listens. I wouldn’t really expect a sludge outfit from Arkansas to sound like this, but then again I don’t know if I can really say what a sludge outfit from Arkansas “should” sound like. I just know I like this album a lot. It’s crushing and brutal in many places. In others, it is heavy yet beautiful at the same time. At times, it reminds me of Neurosis, and at other times I hear bands like Mastodon at work (in fact, the epic track “The Culling” is at times quite reminiscent of “Hearts Alive”). At any rate, in my humble opinion, this is Rwake’s finest work to date.

Again, close, but no cigar. As mentioned in the previous mini-review, I had heard Rwake before, but they just hadnít clicked with me yet. On the other hand, until last year, I had never heard of this band:


45. Dark Castle - Surrender to All Life Beyond Form

Öand had I heard this colossal album prior to their tour last year with YOB, I definitely would have tried my best to attend the show. Holy fuck. Just, holy fucking fuck. This band absolutely rocks, and whatís more, there are only two people in it. Much like Black Cobra, Jucifer and a few other two-person outfits, Dark Castle manage to make enough noise for about four or five folks. Not only that, but the music is compelling as all get-out. Itís not just your standard run-of-the-mill straightforward doom. Itís more like SubRosa and a handful of other excellent doom bands that know when to be somewhat quiet, and when to knock your fucking socks off. There are dramatic changes in pace, volume and tone throughout this album, but through it all, Dark Castle easily manage to keep the listenerís attention by crafting music thatís so interesting that itís impossible to lose one's focus on it. On the one hand, the bone-grinding riff that pervades ďSeeing Through TimeĒ, one of the albumís most crushing tracks, is simply awesome. On the other hand, there are tracks such as the synth-driven ďTo Hide Is to DieĒ, which rely on an eerie sense of mysterious atmospherics punctuated by some truly haunting spoken-word vocals from the mega-talented Stevie Floyd to convey an equally serious sense of dread. All in all, this album is only thirty-three minutes long (perhaps one of the few aspects with which I might take issue), yet it feels like a journey of epic proportions whenever I listen to it. Awesome stuff.
