High on Fire - Luminiferous

They’re a pretension-free bunch, and except for some hokey concepts about the Reptilian Elite and our eventual demise at the hands of a corrupt world government, Luminiferous is yet another successfully badass entry in Pike’s canon.

Liturgy - The Ark Work

14 reviews

With all its heavenly might, The Ark Work stands as another Liturgy entry worth endless discussion, raising the question the band has prompted before: Is this even black metal?

Its audacity and stylistic shifts may have resulted in an album that’s not quite as much like coming home as Sunbather, but it shows a genuine and fascinating maturation in a band that deserves to remain in the spotlight for all the right reasons.

Whether you’re walking the streets with a broken heart or raging in a cramped studio apartment, whether you lean more toward dense, abrasive power electronics or dark, airy ambience, Fernow sees where you’re coming from.

Windhand - Grief's Infernal Flower

Expectations were exceedingly high for Grief’s Infernal Flower, and Windhand delivered a minor masterpiece and the best doom metal album of the year.
