Bullet Ratings #5
- Aphex Twin - Collapse EP [7/10]
Fun listen and didn't make me wanna turn the player off, like some of his other stuff.
- Black Tusk - TCBT [4/10]
I don't know why I can't get into this band and most of the tracks I found generic.
- Candelabrum - Portals [3.5/10]
Too much flat noise that had me bored quickly.
- Cemetery Urn - Barbaric Retribution [9/10]
A proper death metal record that honors the past and its greatest bands, as well as being in bed with the sound of the more recent greatest bands in the genre. Right next to Dead Congregation.
- Defeated Sanity - Chapters Of Repugnance [8.5/10]
The deluxe edition re-release was a good reason to come back to one of my favorite BDM albums.
- Ende - Goétie Funeste [6.5/10]
Not much innovation but a few good moments saved the day.
- Excision - Apex [4/10]
An overall good listen, but no bangers were as impressive as in previous records.
- Ill Omen - The Grande Usurper EP [6/10]
Nice guitar lines and melodies in general, but I didn't like the sound of the vocals and the production of the EP.
- Innumerable Forms - Punishment in Flesh [7/10]
Sweet and dirty.
- Mortuary Drape - Necromantic Doom Returns (Compilation) [7/10]
Including tracks from their early demos in the late 80's, as well as some early live recordings, makes this compilation a good rotten gem for the fans of the band.
- Mørketida - Panphage Mysticism [5.5/10]
I had higher hopes for this release because of its promotion but it doesn't shake much ground. By no means bad though.
- Nicki Minaj - Queen [6.5/10]
This album should have less tracks, because about half of it I really, really like. One of her better efforts, good job.
- Primitive Man & Unearthly Trance - Split [6/10]
Primitive Man haven't impressed me in the past, they didn't now either. Good that something happened when Unearthly Trance hit.
- Unanimated - Annihilation EP [8.5/10]
Amazing tracks with a feel of early Swedish melodic black (as they proudly are a part of) and touches of Dissection. Is "From a Throne Below" a title coincidence, thinking that Watain also have a track "A Throne Below" in their recent album? I will never know. Anyway, all four tracks are in my player.
- Young Thug - Slime Language [5.5/10]
