Serpent Noir – Erotomysticism
Bell Witch – Four Phantoms
Darchon – The Stygian Black Beyond
VI – De Praestigiis Angelorum
MGLA – Exercises in Futility
Gruesome – Savage Land
That Batuskha album is incredible… found it too late to add to my own list 😛
Nice to see Serpent Noir get a mention. Really interesting and unique sounding album that one.
Always good to see Obsequiae, and Batushka is amazing.
Babushka came out of nowhere at the tail end of the year from an underground Polish label, and it’s great to see that even under those circumstances the word is spreading. Amazing album.
Babushka? A most un-metal band name.
BaTushka dammit. Fucking autocorrect. It even “corrects” Slavic names.
