Kvlt, Meet Riff: Blackened Doom, Stoner, And Sludge

Had been wanting to do this for a while, title's pretty self explanatory. Black and doom are my two favorite metal subgenres, and when the two are combined into pure melancholic chaos, I scream like a little girl. I decided to take a broad approach with this one and include black/sludge and black/stoner bands as well, as I think doom, stoner, and sludge all have similar origins and can fall under the same general banner. *Translation: I don't care if you think they can't. As usual, suggestions are both warmly welcomed and appreciated. Limit one album per band.

1. BLACKENED DOOM & DRONE
2. Arcana Coelestia - Le Mirage De L'Idéal
3. Atriarch - Ritual Of Passing
4. Autumnblaze - DämmerElbenTragödie
5. Bast - Spectres

2013: A Culling

Compiled for personal recollection as much as it is for public scrutiny, I hope this list leads you somewhere you want to go. No Order whatsoever. I'm using ♦ to rate the albums, there's really no scale, the more ♦ there is, the better I like the album.

1. The Ruins of Beverast - Blood Vaults (The Blazing Gospel of Heinrich Kramer)
2. Gris - À L'Âme Enflammée, L'Äme Constellée...
3. Witherscape - The Inheritance
4. Wormlust - The Feral Wisdom
5. Ulcerate - Vermis

XIII

Best (the rest, and the worst) of 2013 (thus far).
Partially ordered (the ones with descriptions).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

The curtain call to another fascinating year for metal beckons. Far from disappointing, 2013 is marked by some outstanding releases from various genres, many of whom excelled well beyond expectations. A pretty diverse and intense outing has yielded a very large number of albums to this list, a fact that I take heart from, especially from the more unknown ones from both MS and outside, as many of the obscure findings have truly caught me by surprise. All in all, it has been good fun finding and listening to awesome and diverse music, from both inside and outside of my comfort zone. Lastly, a special thank you to everyone who helped making the list better, with corrections and recommendations and whatever else, and those who made their appreciation felt in one way or the other, as well as other list makers, from whom I siphoned stuff up from time to time.

1. Ulcerate - Vermis
2. The Monolith Deathcult - Tetragrammaton
3. Persefone - Spiritual Migration
4. Witherscape - The Inheritance
5. Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

Hipster Heart - Iron's 2013

As usual, interesting albums of the year to be ranked and reviewed.

This time I'll make it easier for myself, and group weaker releases by genre as soon as I rate them. Expect only 5-3,5/5 to be ranked in order of preference, and possibly a 3,25 category if it's needed.

1. Torres - Torres
2. Subrosa - More Constant Than The Gods
3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
4. Procession - To Reap Heavens Apart
5. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
