(NCS contributor KevinP shares his latest quarterly round-up of albums that he commends to your ears.)
We’re getting toward the end of the year and the amount of quality releases hasn’t slowed down one bit. And there are even more to come as well (Wolfheart, At the Gates, Bloodbath to name a few just off the top of my head). Here’s 5 more albums you should defintely check out.
Majestic Downfall/The Slow Death split
Once this is officially released on September 15th, you should be able to hear all 6 songs (3 by each band), but one listen to the Majestic Downfall track, “The Dark Lullaby”, should give you all you need to know. The Slow Death is no slouch on this by any means. Very good and competent funeral-esque doom. So I don’t blather too much, start listening and see my review here [Editor’s intrusion: I don’t know why I’m letting Kevin link to his own review. I’m going to review this split and it’s the only one you’ll need to read.]
