Black Metal Review 2015 Year List

The most difficult part of the year, compiling a year list. It’s impossible to hear every album and there is is too little time to listen all albums 3 to 5 times. Well, I don’t have that much time. The biggest surprise for me this year was A Forest of Stars. They did some decent releases a few years ago, but I didn’t like the theatrical issues and lost them out of sight. But good words kept coming in, so I did gave their latest release a change. Well, it struck me right away. I knew it would be a potential top-3 candidate for this year’s list. Marduk always end up at the top end of the list, Serpent Sermon finished 2nd in 2013 (With Falkenbach #1). Frontschwein has better songs, but I do like Serpent Sermon more as an album. But it was a very good album, again. Fluisteraars are from the Netherlands and Luwte is the 2nd release in 18 months. Only 4 songs, but absolutely marvelous stuff. Hypnotizing black metal the way I like it.

 

The rest of the list could change from day to day. Nightwish and Draconian are my weak spots, with the latter releasing a very disappointing album. Also disappointing was Kjeld. The Frisian Wolfpack definitely have some master skills in composing songs and lyrics, but I never really got connected. They end up high in the year list of many others, so it’s me who is to blame.

The List:

1. A Forest of Stars – Behold the Sword You Cannot See
2. Fluisteraars – Luwte
3. Marduk – Frontschwein
4. Dodheimsgard – A Umbra Omega
5. Wederganger – Halfvergaan Ontwaakt
6. Macabre Omen – Gods of War – At War
7. Midnight Odyssey – Shards of Silver Fade
8. Cradle of Filth – Hammer of the Witches
9. Nightwish – Endless Forms Most Beautiful
10. The Spirit Cabinet – Hystero Epileptic Possessed

Bands that couls make the top-10 if I made the list tomorrow…:
Keep of Kalessin
Drudkh
Enslaved
Mgla
Diabolicum
