300 Entertainment/Atlantic Records
Shiiiiiii, this one jus has no bad songs. I get hype as fuck to this record almost daily. Poppy n not like a lot of other thugger, but gotdamn I couldn’t stop fuckin wit this one all year and thas on slatt.
Yayo dropped the most music this year and not one project was bad, but this one was on repeat 25/8 yaheardme? Texas jus go the fire. Hoping for a Go Yayo x Haunter collaboration in the future. Keep Haunter hood.
I had been waiting for this to drop for a lil minute. Caught them live like four times and they slayed every time. This record jus keeps ya dancing and definitely keeps ya horny and we having a saying here at Haunter Corp LLC. Keep Haunter Horny.
I had to contain myself every day on the Anicon tour so I wouldn’t punish Alex [of both Anicon and Yellow Eyes] about how good this record is. I love non-traditional metal shit and this album jus checks off so many boxes for me. The samples throughout are just perfect and the drumming is otherworldly. Can’t fuck with you if you don’t fuck with Yellow Eyes.
I was only recently introduced to Charley and feel like a fvlse on account of that. Either way, Charley put out a solid record this year very on par with the rest of his discography. Definitely an influence for future writing.
Detriti Records jus puts out so much solid stuff, but this one was always on. It puts me in a great headspace to make art too. It’s disorienting as it is dancey and I need more.
Dark Descent Records
I couldn’t not include my slimes on this list. Apart from being the nicest dudes, this record will truly stand the test of time as will Starspawn. It’s just good songwriting and only brokebois will disagree.
La Vida es un Mus
Really really really want to see this band live. This record is cold, icy and poppy as all hell. Love that there are songs in Spanish too. ÓRALE.
Dark Descent Records
I really only started listening to this band cos one of the fellas has the same name as me. I was not disappointed. So much angular riffing, excellent soloing and very memorable songwriting.
Iron Bonehead Productions
Blisteringly pissed black metal with so much indigenous pride. This album helped me get so many heavy lifts at the gym. It just makes me proud to be a brown dude in a white-dominated genre. Our pagan ancestors would be proud of this record.
