cheers!
we might leave a week after that then to give anyone interested in voting a bit more time.

However I hope people will start listening to nominated albums now rather than wait for voting period OR after big poll results. (That means you especially Imago since you like to listen to everything before voting)

Oh yeah it's great. They also did a comp of their first two demos this year which is well worth hearing, one of my favorite Repulsion pastiches appears on it.

Stabscotch - Uncanny Valley

gman59, Thursday, 7 December 2017 20:55 (eleven months ago) Permalink

oh yeah the Stabscotch, whether metal or not, is certainly up there

imago, Thursday, 7 December 2017 21:21 (eleven months ago) Permalink

I understand if you want Uncanny Valley off the list. No hard feelings if it doesn't make the spreadsheet. To me its about as heavy as any Cleric, Deafheaven or Mt. Erie albums that have made it in the past. Certainly weaves through a lot of genre's but it's pretty extreme. But yeah, I guess noise/experimental/avant would be the primary genres.

We've got QOTSA in there, which must make the first time MArk Ronson has had a production credit in one of these polls, so I'm not too concerned.

Will probably be voting for NM even if their frontman's disavowal of terrible beliefs was transparently disingenuous - it was a good album. I wish I knew nothing else about the band than their music

imago, Monday, 11 December 2017 15:25 (eleven months ago) Permalink

This will probably also ruin the chances of QOTSA winning.

Siegbran, Monday, 11 December 2017 16:46 (eleven months ago) Permalink

So is Eastern European exoticism part of Nokturnal Mortum's appeal? To be fair, I've only heard their first two records but they reminded me of post-1989 village wedding bands hellbent on showcasing their portable Yamaha keyboard at every gig.

I guess if we have the Chelsea Wolfe album this one should be fair game:

Lingua Ignota - All Bitches Die

I mean the Wolfe album *is* unquestionably metal for long stretches but yeah the Lingua Ignota is fine by me

Anomalie was already nominated

Nominations are closed. 472 albums in all - 2 shy of last year.

voting prob wont start til tomorrow so I'm sure if there's anything been missed you can add before seandalai opens.

Plus we usually allow nominations to be added after votings started because there's always people who say they didn't know nominations were started

been busy lately as my mum broke her leg on the icy path across the road last friday as the council hadn't gritted the roads and paths. So its going to be even more hectic once she gets home (dunno when)

Since I neglected a couple on the falser end, I'll add them to put us on par with last year:

Gold Key - Hello, Phantom
Grave Pleasures - Motherblood

Hey, this Elder album isn't half bad you know. This kind of "stoner" stuff isn't usually my kind of thing.

Vassafor - Malediction
JoDöden - Sittandes i sjön med vatten över huvudet
Saiva - Markerna bortom
Vukari - Divination

Is it common knowledge that Phil from Vassafor played bass for the Chills once? Just for a tour. So weird.

imago, you might get some mileage from the Multishiva album? It's basically blackened sludge with lots of Värähtelijä-style effects on top
