Nov 182016



Well, here we are again. It’s the time of year when we begin our year-end LISTMANIA extravaganza. For those of you new to this orgy, our LISTMANIA blockbuster comes in four parts:

First, we re-print assorted lists of the year’s best albums, leeched from other big web sites and magazines, like this one yesterday which launched that part of LISTMANIA 2016. Second, we will collect our readers’ lists of the 2016 albums and shorter releases they enjoyed the most (we’ll be asking for those on December 1, so get ready). Third, we post the year-end lists of our own staff and assorted guest writers. And fourth, I’ll roll out my list of the year’s Most Infectious Extreme Metal Songs.

And that last list is the subject of this request for help. In case you’ve become an NCS reader since this time last year, here’s what this Most Infectious Song list is all about:


NCS The Best of 2016 graphic


This is about individual songs, not albums, EPs, demos, etc. It’s also not our list of the best individual extreme metal songs of the year — though some of the songs might actually be among the best of the year. Instead, this is a list of the most infectious extreme metal songs we’ve heard this year. The idea is to think of songs that might produce involuntary physical movement, songs that have got catchy melodies or irresistible grooves, or anything else that sticks the song in your head and makes you want to keep listening to it.

To be one of the most infectious songs of the year, it should be something that you revisit often, something you put on playlists, something you mentally replay at unexpected times — songs you go back to repeatedly for listening. “Most played” might be a good synonym.

I’ve already got my own working list of candidates — as in every other year, there are a ton of songs on there already. I’ll get more ideas from all of our other writers. But I have no doubt we’ll overlook some songs we really liked from earlier in the year, and there are inevitably a lot more than we just never heard at all. And so here’s where I’m asking for your help:




Please leave comments to this post with your own lists of Most Infectious Songs that you think ought to be on our list — or you can e-mail your ideas to me at:

I’ll then pick what I think are the most infectious tracks of the year and start playing those songs for you in groups of two or three as we get closer to year-end. The first year we did this (2009), I limited the list to 10 songs. In 2010, I expanded it to 30. In 2011 it grew to 39. In 2012 it topped out at 56. In 2013 I worked really hard and got the list all the way down to.. gulp… 73. In 2014, life got in the way and I never finished the complete rollout, though I announced 62 songs before I gave up. And last year I stopped at 75.

As you can tell, I have a really fuckin’ hard time making lists. Of course, I have no idea how many songs we’ll feature this year.

So, please reflect on the songs you’ve found most addictive this year and let us hear from you. By leaving your list in the comments, you’ll also help make this post a way for other metalheads to find good music from the year that’s now rushing to an end. Thanks for your help.

  15. I’d say my list so far scans more metal-adjacent than proper NCS material, but a few heavy and/or loud songs I kept coming back to this year include:

    Je Suis d’ailleurs–Alcest
    Up and Atom–Astronoid
    Dismal Veil of Nothingness–Funeral Mourning
    Steaming Blood Ascends Beyond the Moon–Wryding*

    *Really just about every song on the Wyrding album would qualify as one of my most infectious, I just love this shit. One of the oddest and most distinctive sounding records of the year, like monks with a great feel for melodic hooks rocking sparse funeral doom of totally sensible song-lengths. I urge you to check it out if you haven’t already!

    Inquisition – Wings of Anu
    Katalepsy – The Long Bright Darkness
    Anciients – Following the Voice

  18. Revocation – Cleaving Giants of Ice
    Khonsu – I’m just listening through the whole album today (woohoo, release day, just like Xmas!). But I’d go for “The Observatory” given how many times I’ve played that through here on NCS.
    Allegaeon – Gray Matter Mechanics. Flamenco undercurrents and slamming riffs, yes please.
    Protean – Bringer of Fear. This isn’t infectious in the sense of gripping riffs, but more like a slow lumbering beast that will carve it’s way in to your subconscious.
    Rotting Christ – Elthe Kyrie
    Mechina – Progenitor
    Terra Tenebrosa – The End Is Mine To Ride
    Sarcoptes – Within The Labyrinth Mind
    Darkend – Clavicula Salomonis. Damn that chorus is catchy.
    Zeal and Ardor – “Blood In The River” hooked me early, but I’d say “Come On Down” takes my pick in the end.
    Wardruna – Odal
    Anaal Nathrahk – Hold Your Children Close And Pray For Oblivion
    Ereb Altor – A Fine Day To Die (Yeah, it’s a cover, but I’ve been cranking it, so it’s here)

  20. I’ll name my five most crippling infections!

    1. Eternal Champion – I am the Hammer

  28. Some excellent Doom & Sludge releases from Japan this year. My personal top 3 tracks out of all of them would be:

    GUEVNNA (ex-Coffins, ex-Shikabane, Veiyadra, Unholy Grave): “Parasitic” off of their new 1st album, also named “Heart of Evil”.

    Nepenthes (ex-Church of Misery, ex-Coffins, Inside Charmer, Floaters, Redwood Blues): “Cease” off of their new 1st album, “Scent”.

    Sithter (ex-Dhidalah, ex- MONE¥I$GOD): “Smoke Demon” off of their soon-to-be-released new 2nd full album, “Chaotic Fiend”.

    *NOTE* Neither the GUEVNNA or Sithter songs I’ve listed are online, though other, also very good tracks, are. This is something we at Kaala are in negotiations about, but its an ongoing process. If yr interested in getting yr hands on the material, we work closely with all of the bands and labels, and would be happy to help getting
