TOP 25 METAL ALBUMS OF 2018 #21 Aborted ~ TerrorVision (Century Media Records) Genre: Deathgrind / Brutal Death Metal This is the tenth full-lenght for Aborted. A great variety of riffs that change from melodeath riffs that could have been written by The Black Dahlia Murder to Cattle Decapitation's riffs style. The album is full of ideas, though sometimes are kind of confusing. Grotesque and gory as always. #Aborted #TerrorVision #CenturyMediaRecords #Deathgrind #BrutalDeathMetal #DeathMetal #HeavyMetalEmpire

TOP 25 METAL ALBUMS OF 2018 #22 Hooded Menace ~ Ossarium Silhouettes Unhallowed (Season Of Mist) Genre: Death Metal / Doom Metal If you want to listen to some good death - doom, you should check this out. The new line-up with the new guitarist Teemu Hannonen and the new singer Harri Kuokkanen makes everything perfectly balanced: northern melodies, blast beats and low growl. #HoodedMenace #OssariumSilhouettedUnhallowed #SeasonOfMist #DeathMetal #DoomMetal #DeathDoomMetal #HeavyMetalEmpire

#23 Acathexis ~ Acathexis (Fallen Empire

TOP 25 METAL ALBUMS OF 2018 #23 Acathexis ~ Acathexis (Fallen Empire Records) Genre: Black Metal / Atmospheric Black Metal Acathexis is an international group formed by Jacob Buczarski (Mare Cognitum), multi-instrumentalist Déhà (Imber Luminis, Cult of Erinyes) and vocalist Dany Tee (Aether, In Element. Their debut album is one of the best black metal records of the year (despite the fact that it was released on December 26th). Their sound is incredibly evocative and the songwriting, as the production, is perfect. The melodies, the atmosphere, the emotions... everything is perfectly balanced and you should definetly check it out (listen to the track "Veins Hollowed"). #Acathexis #FallenEmpireRecords #BlackMetal #AtmosphericBlackMetal #AtmosphericBlackMetal #HeavyMetalEmpire

TOP 25 METAL ALBUMS 2018 #24 Necrophobic ~ Mark Of The Necrogram (Century Media Records) Genre: Black Metal/ Blackened Death Metal Necrophobic are back with one of their best albums in their career! Massive melodic riffs and evil singing create an intense darkened atmosphere during the whole album. Thanks to the excellent production, the bass guitar and the drum set are really heavy. Another time, despite all the line-up changements, Necrophobic have shown how much talent they have. #Necrophobic #MarkOfTheNecrogram #CenturyMediaRecords #BlackMetal #BlackenedDeathMetal #HeavyMetalEmpire

TOP 25 METAL ALBUMS OF 2018 #25 Khemmis ~ Desolation (20 Bucks Spin) Genre: Heavy Metal / NWOBHM / Doom Metal Let's start my personal Top 25 Metal Albums of 2018 with a highly talented band from Colorado: Khemmis. This doom metal album has a lot of traditional Heavy metal sound (that reminds me especially to the NWOBHM's bands like early-Iron Maiden and Saxon) and epic middle eastern melodies that create a really trippy atmosphere. The general sound is (another time) different than precedent release, "Hunted", but the album is worth to be listened many times. #Khemmis #Desolation #Isolation #20BucksSpin #DoomMetal #HeavyMetal #NWOBHM #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay Plini ~ Handmade Cities (Self-Released, 2016) Genre: Progressive Rock / Progressive Rock / Djent / Fusion The music composed by Plini in this album will go straight to your heart, your mind, your soul. An instrumental album that creates an atmosphere mainly composed by prog - fusion rhythms, by drummer Troy Wright, and an optimistic harmony by Plini and bassist John McLaughlin. The opening track "Electric Sunrise" shows how great the trio can calibrate technique and emotion, that's why I think this is one of the best tracks in the album (check out also Inhale). This record will make you travel with the mind. #Plini #HandmadeCities #ElectricSunrise #ProgressiveRock #ProgressiveMetal #Djent #Fusion #Instrumental #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay Thy Catafalque ~ Geometria (Season Of Mist, 2018) Genre: Avantgarde An interesting combination of classical elements, jazz chords progressions, folk melodies, electronic, metal (industrial, and djent). This album is more disinterested with metal than ever. The whole recording explores unexplored spaces. sometimes Geometria has somethings that any predecessor has not. #ThyCatafalque #Geometria #SeasonOfMist #Avantgarde #ModernClassical #AcidJazz #Electronic #Djent #BlackMetal #Industrial #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay 1914 ~ The Blind Leading The Blind (Archaic Sound, 2018) Genre: Black Metal / Death-Doom Metal / Blackened Death Metal 1914 are a band from Ukraine formed in 2014 with lyrics related to The Great War by a professional point of view (they are historians). They have a unique style in the extreme metal of today because their goal is to create the atmosphere during the WWI. The general sound of the record is clean, aggressive, mighty, dark and melancholy. During the whole album the music change from a classic Black/Blacked Death Metal to the Death-Doom bpm. They put various additions of original recordings from that period. An excellent album with an important message: don't ever forget what happened. #1914 #TheBlindLeadingTheBlind #ArchaicRecords #BlackMetal #BlackenedDeathMetal #DeathDoomMetal #DeathMetal #DoomMetal #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay Psycroptic ~ As The Kingdom Drowns (Prosthetic Records, 2018) Genre: Technical Death Metal Psycroptic's new album "As The Kingdom Drowns" can create a wall of sound and be Technical Death at the same time, wich is not usual for this kind of bands. Killer percussion part, full of blast beats and more complex patterns, followed by the heavy bass; badass riffs and technique on the guitar; and a deep growl with a women's choir. Never like in this album Psycroptic demonstrated (another time) how much talent they have. #Psycroptic #AsTheKingdomDrowns #ProstheticRecords #TechnicalDeathMetal #BrutalDeathMetal #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay Anaal Nathrakh ~ A New Kind Of Horror Genre: Black Metal / Industrial / Grindcore Anaal Nathrakh's music was always the soundtrack of my depressed, desperate or angry moments. Their sound made of Black Metal and Grindcore, combined with some epic melodies and a little bit of electronic effects, is something unique in metal music. But today I will give some reasons about why I think this is a BAD album: - Too much electronic music | Electronic music is part of their sound, they always knew how and when to use it. But in this case they exaggerated and it can seriously reminds you to Skrillex (listen to the first single, "Forward!") - Vocal Parts | There are a lot of moments in wich the vocal parts aren't aggressive like what you expect from Anaal Nathrakh (listen to "Are We Fit Or Glory Yet? (The War To End Nothing). Please, that cheesie part). Also, I personally hated the falsetto parts But, after all, it's still an Anaal Nathrakh album. It will always be better than a lot of new stuff #AnaalNathrakh #ANewKindOfHorror #Forward #ObsceneAsCancer #MetalBladeRecords #BlackMetal #Industrial #Grindcore #Electronic #Hardcore #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire

#AlbumOfTheDay Irreversible Mechanism ~ Immersion (Blood Music, 2018) Genre: Progressive Death Metal Highly influenced by great Progressive Death Metal bands such as Rivers Of Nihil, Virvum and Fallujah, Irreversible Mechanism's Immersion is an impressive mix of lead vocals and tone; ethereal atmosphere and harmonies; aggressive, meditative and emotional upbeat parts. The combination of this guitar work (wich is a combination of emotive melodies served by an impressive technique), the passionate clean vocals and the robust growl, and the drum work of Dan Presland (Ne Obliviscaris) makes this album one of the best Progressive Death albums of the last months and probably, one of the best Progressive Death albums of the year. What do you think about this album? #IrreversibleMechanism #Immersion #BloodMusic #ProgressiveDeathMetal #TechnicalDeathMetal #Fallujah #RiversOfNihil #Virvum #AlbumOfTheDay #HeavyMetalEmpire
