Post Your 2019 best-of list

The usual end-of-the-year topic. Let's limit ourselves to 10 titles?

I put it in the general section so you can list whatever album you want. Doom or not and even, let's be crazy, Metal or not...!

I don't think I've even listened to 10 different things released this year...

These 3 albums for sure, ordered by most times I've listened to them.

Starless Domain - EOS
Uncertainty Principle - Vo1D
Lowen - A Crypt in the Stars

Is this some unreleased album by Uncertainty Principle because I'm not aware of its existence at all and I would like to be=) The only Vo1D album I remember is Hlidolf's masterpiece by this name=)

Post Re: Your 2019 best-of list

I thought of these. I'm currently relistening to the several stuff I bought this year so it's maybe just a temporary list:

Fvneral Fvkk : Carnal Confessions (morose epic doom)
Esoteric : A Pyrrhic existence (funerary psychedelic doom)
Nixa : Opus Tierra (poignant stoner-ish post doom)
Katharos XIII - Palindrome (jazzy atmo dark metal-ish awesomness)
All Your Sisters - Trust Ruins (powerful goth rock)
Haiku Funeral - Decadent Luminosity (atmo spacey ritualist mish-mash of various influences)
Uur : Uur (atmo doom)
Янтарные Слёзы (Amber tears) - Когда нет троп (atmo Folk Doom)
Рожь - Один сажень (Funeral ambient Doom)
Villagers of Ioannina City - Age of Aquarius (folk-ish stoner-ish prog metal)

It's on the UP bandcamp page : https://uncertaintyprinciple1.bandcamp.com/album/void
Also check out Vo2d and VO3D which seem to be part of the same theme.

I have to second these:

I listened to lots of stuff this year but I'd have to check the release dates. I was also very happy to see this folk band finally release something that I could actually buy. So I'll add this as well:

Белое злато - Калина красная

It's russian folk music with stunning female vocals. It's on Google Play. Ухарь - купец is a good song if you want to check them out.

I add Capilla Ardiente - The Siege to my list and that brings it to ten entries. :)

Post Re: Your 2019 best-of list

haters of trad doom (you know who you are :p), look away now :D

1. Night Resident - s/t (super catchy doomish metal/rock, album of the year for me)

2. Orodruin - Ruins of Eternity
3. the River - vessels into white tides
4. Zivatar - Demons from the Deep
5. Konvent - Demo
6. Nikita Kapernaumov - While She Was Embracing Her Spring
7. A Bridge Over Bloodied Water ‎– To Wander Forever Underneath The Stars
8. Dolorangst - Катастрофа Внутри
9. Amalphi - Acheron I
10. d.a.d. - a prayer for the loud

"not exactly what I was expecting" awards:
*Atlantean Kodex - course of empire: these guys were going from strength to strength and were poised to be major contenders, until they delivered a half-baked, poorly produced album of sorts after a 6 year wait... some people loved it, not I though.
*Solstice - 2-track EP with new singer: notoriously hard-to-please northerner who made his name with some incredible singers replaces tall irishman who can't really sing with petite americana who can't really sing. you seriously couldn't make it up. people who remember his posts on long defunct hard doom forum rolled their eyes and had a fit.

The Konvent demo is cool, but it's two years old. :)

Thanks for the other albums though, I don't know lots of them!

edit: now on this https://zivatar.bandcamp.com/album/demons-from-the-deep

:thumbs-up:

Post Re: Your 2019 best-of list

I have an hesitation: I'd like to find a place to Villagers of Ioannina City - Age of Aquarius...
The Capilla Ardiente is good, but I listened to it on YT, the album is too expensive and there's no download option either... So too bad, but it'll be replaced by the Villagers.

edit; to answer your question, it's fluffy doom that Merchant is nuts about. :p

I'm not nuts about fluffy doom, but I don't dislike it...

@Abigail - something I don't hate! :p

BTW, I don't have Age of Aquarius... I'll have a listen...

EDIT: couldn't get past the first 3 tracks of this Aquarius stuff... I hated it... :p

I should have clarified there're big chunks of stoner rock in it. And that's another thing you hate indeed.

Draw your list instead of being a smart Alec... :D
