    On the strength of that track it may go in my email to Belboid.

    Lee Scott has a new one out - SUPERGOD5000PLUS

    Only heard three of the tunes, but they're all pretty solid

    There's nothing on there quite as great as Jessica 6 or The Shatterproof Man, but it flows a lot better as an album than the comp that came out at the beginning of the year. She's a Calculator is probably my favourite on there. And Telegraph Street - "...first on BBC1 the news with Angela Rippon ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZBWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" :D

    So it's been out for ages and I don't want to be seen as touting in the album of the year thread, but I don't think I've heard anything better this year.....

    How do you rate Saudi Arabia's Al-Namrood,
    mojo pixy ? I saw they made The Quietus's end of year list for Enkar. Don't have the album but they sound pretty good on Youtube.

    mojo pixy unquantifiable hazards

    I like Al Namrood and I understand they do have a massive following in places it's somewhere between dangerous and impossible to organise black metal shows. They're Saudi, or so I believe, and as I understand it their output is illegal there.

    Edit to answer your actual question...

    I haven't heard all of Enkar but I like what I have head I like. It sounds more punky than before, so maybe a new drummer or maybe toning down the blasts to make the vocals stand out more. Either way it's angry as fuck :thumbs:

  10. The two Lingua Ignota (AKA Kristin Hayter) albums from this year are pretty intense.
    Here's "That he may not rise again" from the "Let the Evil of His Own Lips Cover Him" LP

    Her Website and Soundcloud has some interesting stuff.

    I've only just found this out, it's from the start of the year and I missed it. Falmouth-based doom/stoner duo Monolithian have a mini-album out. Name your price, but worth a few quid IMO. Pretty fukn heavy for a two-piece.

    Ron Asheton comes back to life, drops acid, and sits in for a jam with Amon Duul. If you like instrumental freeform non-rock guitar and drums lunacy (Vampre Belt, Snyder/Thornton etc.), you'll love this. The band's name is Razorlegs and the album is 'Bloodshot'.
