Tunesday: Favorite Albums of 2017 (Mohs Scale 8-9)

More details can be found in the first of these posts (which have been my least popular ever) but here’s the last alpha-by-artist list of favorite albums of 2017 with a sample song each, this time composed mostly of what might be called death, black metal, whatever. The ten samples total 47:40.

Specific notes: Couldn’t find a clip for “Mankind Will Have No Mercy” that was auto-generated from Vengeful Ascension or any auto-clip at all of “From Hell” or “Everlasting Lie.” On the other hand, I included the video, rather than the auto-clip, for “Ten Thousand Ways to Die” (which is part of a cross-album series which started with “Violence“) because it’s great. With All Their Might is an outlier but it’s crunchy.

Edit (2018-10-31): replace the original link to “The Crowning Quietus,” which mysteriously went missing, with one that works.

Acephalix – Decreation: “Egoic Skin” (6:39)

Goatwhore – Vengeful Ascension: “Mankind Will Have No Mercy” (3:48)
