5. Lich King - Born Of The Bomb


Upon first hearing Combat Mosh in 2011, I knew that the newest Lich King release would be nothing short of awesome. With Born Of The Bomb, the band transcends the "durr we wrote Black Metal Sucks guize" image and churns out a fantastic thrash album in the vein of Vio-Lence and Exodus. Easily one of the better "new age" thrash albums I've heard (although that's not saying much). Regardless, this shit is catchy and well written. Check it out yo

4. Mother Brain - Straight To Business


Wow. Ridiculously good grind from out of nowhere. Grindcore Karaoke strikes again! For fans of Magrudergrind and violence

3. Abnormality - Contaminating The Hive Mind


Excellent brutal death that sounds like Suffocation with Flo Mounier on drums. Vocalist Mallika has a rather interesting almost "soft" quality to them. They're by no means weak but have a cool shadowy sound to them that sound all the more menacing. I've had this album on regular rotation lately, solid stuff here folks.

This split rules, specifically the Priapus side. Priapus is a three piece (drums/guitar/vocals) that totally rips in the vein of Assuck and such, just very pissed off stuff here. I highly reccommend any fan of grind check out this split and their 2011 release Air Loom. Old Painless, on the other hand, is (I believe) a 2 piece noisy grind band with throat searing high vocals. This guy makes Jon Chang sound like Chris Barnes. Seriously.

Also, I won a test press of this split for being a boss
I really like the Old Painless side of the split.

You sir, have some wicked taste in music. I'm going to check out half the bands on this list based off their covers alone.

...except Metric. I'm from near Toronto, they get played on the radio A LOT here, and I fucking hate them.

2. Napalm Death - Utilitarian


Old school looking artwork can only be a good sign. While I worship at the altar of From Enslavement To Obliteration, I really have never cared for the bands output after the departure of Bill Steer and Lee Dorrian (save Enemy Of The Music Business). When I saw Utilitarian was streaming, I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did, because this album is easily the best Napalm album since the classic lineup's dissolution. All of the death metal elements seem to be gone, and we are left with a far more punk sounding album, with tons of the dissonant Swans-esque tinges that I so ever love (Godflesh 4 life doe). Mitch Harris' vocals are reminiscent of Lee Dorrian and mix really well with Barney's shouted vocals (I never cared for his Kam Lee growls but it sounds like he's changed styles). Analysis Paralysis is awesome, and I even dig the clean vocals and saxophone solo. Wish their live performance this past November could've matched the excellence of the recording but eh, that's what the albums there for I guess.

1. Deathspell Omega - Drought


Deathspell has always been one of those bands that everyone seemed to put on the highest tier possible, but I never really understood why. This EP has shown me the way. This is what hell sounds like.

0. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity


Like this needs an explanation....never paid attention to Cattle, now I do. They've pushed the boundaries of death metal just as Gorguts did with Obscura, and the influence of this album will almost definitely be felt in the future.
