    I consider making children to this album regularly.

    Being a metalhead, it doesn’t ever evolve beyond this point.

  • This hit me hard when it came out, swallowing me hole. Amazing piece of post-apocalyptic sounding music. AOTY contender for me.
    Also, cool cover photo.

    • Careful with the spelling there; saying “swallowing me hole” instead of “swallowing me whole” turns you into a pirate describing a sex act.

      • It did however swallow my hole. There’s only a void left.

          Did you hit the brown note?

  • Shrümpelstiltskin

    Did you guys cover the new Hypno5e album? I don’t remember seeing it. If you haven’t, that’s a cool album to review. I revisited it recently, and remembered how much fun it is.

    • Dethjesta

      It’s a good album but not as good as Acid Mist Tomorrow, IMHO.

  • Zach Ward

    I’m really hoping to see one of these for Vale of Pnath. Really great album and I’m sad yall’s didn’t review it.

    • Eldritch Elitist

      Can’t guarantee it’ll get a write-up, but I’ll check it out!

      • Zach Ward

        One of my favorite tech death album released this year. I think everyone should at least listen to it.

    • Dr. Wvrm

      Hello friend.

      • Zach Ward

        Hello buddy.

    • Luke_22

      Yeah it’s a pretty cool album, been listening to it a fair bit recently.

    • Kronos

      The album is quite well-executed tech death, but l wouldn’t say it’s year-end material.

  • Kronos

    The Ts YMHM begin

  • hallowed

    It really is a great album. I am already looking forward to where these guys go next with their music.

  • ashcindersmoke

    This is a release I absolutely meant to check out, but never got around to. Will rectify that today

  • I also love the flow of this album. This would’ve done better as a single track album than Insomnium’s Winter’s Gate in my opinion.

  • Mark Z

    Nice writeup! This album is great, definitely one of the year’s highlights for me.

  • TheTransmuted

    This album punched me in the face, then gave me a hug. Absolutely loving this thing.

  • Name’s Dalton

    One scorcher of a ferocious beauty, this is.

  • El_Cuervo


  • Alex Benedict

    the algorithm – brute force
    Shadow of Intent – primordial
    Sithu Aye – Set course for andromeda
    Hope for the dying – legacy

    will any of these get TYMHM treatment? some of my favorite albums from this year

    • Goldicot


    • Kronos

      I used to be quite into The Algorithm, I’ll give it a listen.

      • Alex Benedict

        I hadn’t heard of him until his release this year but that album perfectly satisfies some hybrid edm/metal need that I didn’t know I had

    • Reese Burns

      Shadow of Intent is absolutely brutal, glad someone else has heard of it too

      • Kronos

        Brutal, you say? I’ll have to check that out as well.

        • Reese Burns

          I think you’ll like it, it should be right up your alley.

          • Kronos

            this is tagged with both “deathcore” and “symphonic.” That’s not my regular alley, but I can’t say I don’t like it. It kind of sounds like a heavier version of the one good Born of Osiris album.

  • Thatguy


    Excellent review and excellent album. Thanks for giving these guys some exposure.

  • Luke_22

    This is indeed some powerful stuff. Digging it a great deal.

  • WhamBamSam

    I’d put up Euphoria – Operation: Genesis up for consideration for TYMHM. I was just turned onto it the other day and it’s phenomenal. Very reminiscent of Vektor, but in a nearer orbit around classic Thrash and NWOBHM. Beyond that there are a few other albums that will be on or near my year end list which didn’t get reviews here. Then again, I’d just as soon you guys covered stuff that I’ve actually missed as validate my taste.

    • Luke_22

      Cool, sounds interesting I’ll check it out.

    • Mark Z

      Totally agreed, that album is really, really incredible. If I had discovered it sooner and was able to give it more listens I imagine it easily would have ended up in my Top 10. First impressions blew me away regardless.

      • WhamBamSam

        I’ll probably have it in my top 10 even with my late exposure (I’ve already just about caught it up in spins to most of my other contenders), but I had a lot of grey area after the top 3 or 4 anyway with a big glut of albums that I really like but fall shy of absolutely adoring.

  • TminusEight

    Good stuff, keen to hear more of this.

  • basenjibrian


  • JL

    Hey when are your year end lists going to come out?

  • This is good, not a big fan of their style but this one’s good imho.

  • Requiem

    It’d be positively criminal not to do a long post filled with a dozen or so TYMHM and call it a ‘things you might have list’.

  • DrewMusic

    So since falling in love with this and searching for a similar fix I have discovered (shame on me, I know) Ulcerate and am loving them, but I needs more, needs it! Anger bots, assemble and give me your wisdoms and knowledges of all things brutal, beautiful and hitherto unbeknownst to myself!

  • DrewMusic

    This album hasn’t left my ears for more than a day at a time since this review was posted, finally ordered the vinyl today and I couldn’t be more excited.
    I have to say, too, it seems like a good chunk of artists who get positive reviews here end up running out of stock, and fairly quickly considering how relatively obscure/unknown many of those bands are.
    I’m just saying, rumours of the AMG Bump may be greatly under-exaggerated.

    I’d like to know the length of each side of the l.p.
