Dan Alderson (Horrified)

10. Visigoth - The Revenant King
I discovered this band with their EP "The Final Spell" which was a ridiculously catchy and fun slab of heavy metal, with some of the most passionate vocals I've heard in this style. Their debut full length sees the band venturing into more "epic" territory than the previous EP, with long arrangements and true metal influence, a great first effort from an already worthy band. If you're into true, epic and traditional metal then you should be buying.

9. Undergang - Døden læger alle sår

This one took me by surprise. Intensely dirty old school death metal. The type of shit that makes you pull mean riff faces while listening. A one to pull out for when you're feeling the filth.

8 - Scythian - Hubris in Excelsis

Epic black thrash in that Craven Idol / Destroyer 666 vein, coupled with mid to late period Bathory influence. Filled with dynamic and interesting arrangements, the album sways from high tempo assaults of blackened thrash to epic, mid tempo builds. Highly recommended.

7. Blackbreath - Slaves Beyond Death

Progressive, forward thinking and full of dynamic. Blackbreath have evolved from their crusty punk / death crossover beginnings and have showed a lot of the supposed “elite” death metal bands how it's done this year.

6. Skeletal Remains - Condemned to Misery

I've been following this band since their debut 3 track demo and, they have been one of my favorite bands in the death metal revival movement ever since. This is similar to the debut except much better in every aspect. Better production, more high intensity riffing and vocals, all topped off with incredible drum work. This one is quite simply, sick.

5 - Sivvj Yar - Burial Shrouds

Desolate and sorrowful one man black metal. This album manages to encapsulate grief, loss and despair with its sad melodies and haunting vocals. Agalloch jamming with Woods of Desolation is a good reference point. The album benefits from it's solid production job and great performances, making it stand out amongst the crowd of bedroom one man black metal projects.

4. Mgla - Exercises In Futility

A big step up from With Hearts Towards None for me. Mgla are one of the most promising acts in black metal right now. Mgla doing their own unique style of black metal and doing it brilliantly.

3. Ninkharsag - Blood Of Celestial Kings

A very promising debut, Ninkharsag take everything awesome about “second wave” black metal and give it a modern spin. Savage and at times melodic. Concise and has just enough dynamic over its short 30 Minute run time to keep making you reach back again and again.

2. Obsequie - Aria of Vernal Tombs

Possibly some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard. Obsequie manage create visions of beautiful autumnal landscapes inside your head here. Kind of makes me think of The Jester Race period In Flames with more medieval touches and a wash of melodic black metal. But references aside, Obsequie have created a unique album which I will be revisiting for a long time to come.

1 Horrendous - Anareta

Oh man, did I have big exceptions for this one and they managed to smash everyone of them. Horrendous became my favorite active metal band with their last album, Ecdysis, taking everything I love about music and laying it out in a 40 minute package for me. They do the same again with Anareta, but go even further in their vision. Horrendous are the most intelligent and forward thinking metal band currently. Savage and melodic riffs, accomplished performances and the arrangements are incredibly worked together, full of twists and turns and lots of moments that make me think “wow”. Coupled with one of the finest production jobs I've heard to date, it will be hard for any band to top this one, a modern masterwork.
