didn't listen to much new "hardcore" this year besides Light bearer. Funerary was kind of a let down for me, I think it was cool that they tried new stuff, but I just would've preferred a mixed of martyr immortal and paradise... or even just another martyr immortal with maybe one or two slower songs.

Uhhh anyways, this is basically my list for metal albums I liked this year:

whore - demo tape
Void meditation cult - sulfurous prayers
Dodsengel - s/t
Disma - towards the megalith
Cianide - gods of death
Mitochondrion - parasignosis
ash borer - s/t

Still need to properly listen:

Wrathprayer - the son of moloch
prosanctus inferi - red streams of flesh

Trap Them - Darker Handcraft
Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will

Ugh, I know. He's a terrific songwriter, it's a shame that he's so often overlooked, or not even known.

I loved it too, but for some reason everyone else on this forum despises it. It's really cool for what it is

I heard a lot of mixed opinions on it but I really dug it. Except for the gibberish tracks.

Yeah Box Up My Bones is one of my favorite tracks this year. Reminds me a lot of what The Contortionist would sound like if they weren't heavy as hell.

Also has anyone heard Starfucker and SBTRKT's new CD's? Really good stuff, probably my favorite non-heavy releases this year
