The year is coming to a close so this will be my last weekly playlist for 2013. I’m looking forward to all the awesome new music that will come out in 2014 and like always, I will be posting all of my listening habits, musings and rants right here.
No new releases this week. I’ve been scouring through best of lists and have been listening to a lot of albums I missed this year. I may do a list of late year finds that are incredible. Lot’s of nasty, dirty, brutal finds on the list this week and I wrap it up with some power metal.
Never mind the Twin Peaks reference as this music probably would not fit in any episode of that show. What we have here is some solid classic metal worshipping at the feet of Rainbow. This is metal for funs sake. Solid playing, sing-a-long lyrics and that undeniable feeling to shove your fist in the air.
This popped up during my search through the best of lists. Some straight forward, brutal, black thrash. Intense from start ro finish. A great little punch in the face for the end of the year.
Holy crap Wuthering Heights hit me like a freight train this week. I’ve been a fan of this band for a couple years now and I listen to them off and on but whenever I do I become obsessed with them. I don’t know why I always forget how impressive this band is. So orchestral and epic and whimsical. This album is a perfect example a power metal band who gets it.
