New Releases: January in Review

It’s about time I got around to this. To be honest, I had planned to do this much earlier but I forgot I wanted to do these monthly summary things until last night, when I realized that it was time to write the February one, and I saw that I hadn’t even written anything for January yet.

The way these posts will work is I’m essentially going to post a monthly list of the best 10 or so albums of the month, which I will compile based on what I find for my New Releases posts as well as other releases that I missed or didn’t hear about until afterwards. I also don’t intend to rank these, but I will group them by genre. I’ll also be posting some statistics about the month. I won’t write as much on each post in the future, but I did want to quickly outline how these things are going to go.


Doom Metal

Dopelord- Children of the Haze

The Flight of Sleipnir- Skadi

Weltesser- Crestfallen

Black Metal

Rance- Rance


Obskuritatem- Vampiriska Kakofonija


Dumal- The Lesser God


W- Winterwomb

Au Champ des Morts- Dans La Joie

Vomit Kult- Demonic Art

Author- Lopun Alku


DSBM is a subgenre of black metal. However, I consider it too niche of a style to be lumped in with the other black metal releases, so it will receive its own category.

Wraithe- Alone and Unloved

Waiting for my End- Our Need of Consolation is Insatiable

Death Metal

Blasphemer- Blasphemer

Analepsy- Atrocities from Beyond

If I’ve missed any great releases, please be sure to let me know.
