Not a lot of metal for me this year. I’m going to go with The Ocean ‘[img]Phanerzoic%20I:%20Palaeozoic[/img]’ as my Album of the Year.

It was inevitable that it would sound patchy, given the circumstances, but I'd hoped for more.

I've completely overlooked the Clutch album, haven't even heard it. Didn't think much of the previous one so just didn't bother with it.

I thought the Sleep album was dull.

That's how I felt about DCD. The new album and the last.

As for Clutch, I prefer B.O.B.D to their last album. Better sound and songs, although I didn't think much of the first song I heard from it. I suspect anyone who finds it disappointing didn't give it a proper go.

Ghost is my second fav of the year, and it is my fav album of theirs since their debut.

There are some excellent songs on the new Clutch, but I think it's too long overall, 3-4 weaker songs could be culled and it would be a much better album. I much prefer their last few albums.

Off the top of my head, in no particular order:

Uada- Cult of a Dying Sun
Alice in Chains - Rainier Fog
Sulphur Aeon - The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos
High on Fire - Electric Messiah

The Clutch, much like the last one, kinda went in one ear and out the other. Earth Rocker is still my favourite but I think they need to change it up again to remain interesting. I'm sure I'll give it another go at some point, so this view may change (although I do think they need to do something different for the next release).

I haven't listened to the YOB enough to really form an opinion, at this moment in time.

I also quite liked the All Them Witches album, ATW.

I forgot about the YOB (in one ear and out the other, the last one I really enjoyed was The Great Cessation) and Portal (listened a few times, thought it was OK, never went back to it) albums, TBH.

A friend told me to listen to that one a few weeks ago. I heard most of it. Sounded a bit like old Rotting Christ meets mid paced Dissection to my ears. Very old school. Sounded perfectly decent, but it's the kind of album I would have appreciated more if it came out 15 or so years ago.

That Portal album was really quite good, but I'd be lying if I said it was on the same level as their previous two. It also felt like it took forever to come out too. Maybe they failed to capitalise on the buzz they created with Vexovoid, which was highly anticipated because so many people discovered them between 2009-2012, so when it finally dropped it really made a splash.

As good as it was, it also seemed somewhat less adventurous. In addition, it was released at the very start of the year, and albums that are released in Jan/Feb often tend to be forgotten by the end of the year unless they are complete knockouts.


DOOM: The new Clutch isn't as instant as some of their other releases. It didn't really click with me fully until the 3rd or 4th listen, but I definitely prefer it to Psychic Warfare. It certainly isn't as good as Earth Rocker, but that is one of their best, and some on here claim it's their best.

I think I'm going to have to add the new Earthless, Black Heaven, to my list.
