Albums we liked circa ’09.

01.  Agoraphobic Nosebleed – Agorapocalypse

This is the new shit! A.N.  have made me bang my head this year like a teenager who listens for the first time to “Reign in Blood”. Full respect to Scott Hull for this astounding piece of art.

02. Switchblade – ST

Swedes did it again. This time even more dark and heavy. What’s next? I really can’t imagine. But i know these dudes do imagine. Hands down for this one.

03. Converge – Axe to Fall

This record has the ultimate energy and the necessary atmosphere in order to be in my top 3 of this year. I enjoyed the new material along with the collaborations and all i can say is that Converge can always produce top notch songs. Accept it.

04. HKY  – HKY

HKY is for me the ultimate surprise for this year. I couldn’t imagine that French can play such heavy music and produce such a unique atmosphere. These guys know exactly what to do and we are all about it!

05. Tombs – Winter Hours

Man, Mike Hill is the man! Winter Hours is a nasty, black, terrifying record; their live performance is outstanding and all I pray for is their next record to have more black metal influences/presence than ever. Amen

06. Kylesa – Static Tensions

This is a band that I really admire . The drum duo just slays and the rest of the band plays hell on their tracks. Don’t know what to say but I’ll tell the truth: heavy music needs Kylesa! Killer album.

07. Gaza – He Is Never Coming Back

Gaza plays the modern hardcore music with fury, fantasy, technicality and with the necessary essence of ultra dark atmosphere. Outsiders or not, Gaza needs our attention and not only.

08. Magrudergrind – Magrudergrind

As a fan of grindcore music I could not forget Magrudergrind’s new effort. These dudes know how to play and believe me, this is not a blindman’s buff. This is as dangerous as it should be.

09. Natural Snow Buildings – Shadow Kingdom

One of the best records ever for me. NSB are from another universe, let’s face it. But first, we have to accept that this thing is absolutely their thing. I totally support them. You should too.

10. Jack Rose – The Black Dirt Sessions

Last but not least, one guitar player whose heart will be in our guitars forever.  Listen to this man for a last time; it’s such a heavy emotion. Let’s hope he is somewhere better. We’ll miss him.
