#81

Whoa! I wasn’t but I am now. Nuts!


#82

new martyrdod. https://martyrdoedsl.bandcamp.com/releases

yussssssss, crust punk with guitar solos.


#83

I loved Paranoia but Eldopp left me totally cold. Hopefully this is a return to form.

Deathspell Omega easily one of the best releases this year. Absolutely incredible.


#84

Some pals just put out a few minutes of punky/hardcore-y/screamo-y stuff


#85

new animals as leaders is so fucking good. seriously diverse, a lot more ‘nylon’ as Tosin puts it which is really interesting, really complex obviously but with loads of groove to it. what a band.

#88

new OvO track sounds pretty nuts


#89

ffs sean


#90

scissorfight! from the 90s! a chance to relive being 14, you say?

oxbow is about the oddest festival band i can think of. tempted.


#91

Roadburn is the best metal festival. Gutted I can’t afford to return this year.


#92

Roadburn is ace. Would definitely recommend going if you have the chance.


#93

Oxbow once played Bristol Community Festival at Ashton Court. They were fantastic.


#94

I saw them as “Oxbow Acoustic Duo” supporting Isis at the Corporation in Sheffield in 2007. I knew nothing about them and was slightly freaked out by Eugene’s intense/threatening stares at people in the first few rows (myself included) while getting increasingly more undressed!


#95

From much earlier this year, but recently I’ve been really taking with a band called Null.

Doom and gloom from Southern USA. I expected the vocals to be quite growly but they’re actually fairly clean shoegaze stuff. It’s also not constantly heavy in that it occasionally becomes a bit more stoner rock, grunge, post rock etc. It’s paced really well. Gradually becoming one of my favourites of the year.


#96

Quite enjoying the Khemmis album, sort of makes me think of what might have happened if Metallica were more influenced by doom rather than thrash.


#97

Anyone had a good old bang of the Truckfighters album? It’s weird but pretty damn meaty.


#98

had a bit of an internet friendship with eugene earlier in the year. he’s a really odd bloke. one of the best live bands i’ve ever seen.


#99

YEEEEEESSSSS this is fucking amazing so very very triumphant - can’t see it being more than a fling but man am I going to enjoy it while it lasts


#100

Yeah I loved it when it came out but I haven’t really gone back to it. So much music this year though that I’m sure I’ll revisit stuff over the next couple of years and wonder why I didn’t give it more time.
