2016 comes to a close.




I can't believe that metallic imagery has now been in existence for four years.

sometimes it feels like it's been a lot longer, sometimes a lot shorter...

and while the last three hundred and sixty-five days haven't brought a lot of posts, they have brought a whole lot of personal and professional triumphs.

my girlfriend made a film that's played at a few festivals across the country...it's great and I'm so proud of her.

I've made multiple videos that have played in the united states and europe. I've worked with a whole bunch of musicians whom I really admire.

and we're working on a really awesome webseries that I know a whole lot of you will be into.

all in the continued pursuit of creative and financial freedom.

new music has played an integral role in all of this, it's just a shame that so much of it is readily available online.

and it's also a shame that I don't have nearly as much time nor energy to scour the storefronts of obscure labels and distros hunting for undiscovered gems as I used to...

but metallic imagery has continued, and will continue.


since it's also the end of the year, my list of favorite albums is below.

no subsections, no qualifiers, nothing extraneous - these are just my favorite things that I heard this year, from limited-run tapes to big releases.

streaming links are included as available...


1. sanguine relic - blood on old altars in remembrance.
2. fallujah - dreamless.
3. el-ahrairah - self-titled.
4. oathbreaker - rheia.
5. uškumgallu - rotten limbs in dreams of blood.
6. cobalt - slow forever.
7. marsh dweller - the weight of sunlight.
8. blood incantation - starspawn.
9. bastard of majesty sin - monument of gathered whore bones.
10. chthe'ilist - le dernier crépuscule.
11. wreck and reference - indifferent rivers romance end.
12. katatonia - the fall of hearts.
13. street sects - end position.
14. youth code - commitment to complications.
15. agoraphobic nosebleed - arc.
16. mizmor - yodh.
17. forteresse - thèmes pour la rébellion.
18. orgy of carrion - obscured ceremonies under hell moon.
19. alcest - kodama.
20. 40 watt sun - wider than the sky.

1. Balancing Act
2. Not A Gradual Decline


harsh, metallic power electronics from ahlzagailzehguh.

release by fusty cunt last year.

yes, it really does come with a nail in cement and an unplayable cassette with a piece of rusted metal affixed to it.

and every "cover" is a different piece of linoleum tile.

it's a great package and a true art object, unlike most "special editions" nowadays.

creations like this embody everything I love and respect about the scene.

I bought this from analog worship, but I guess it was the last copy...so keep an eye on discogs.

new release from the rita courtesy of bacteria field.

crumbling, glitchy walls of emptiness, which probably fits the current mood all too well.

total destruction, total isolation, totally unfeeling.

released via bacteria field a while ago...time keeps slipping, moving faster and faster...feels like this came out just a few weeks ago, but apparently it was months...

anyway, solid harsh noise from an artist we all know.

and I apologize for so few posts recently...but I've been busy with, well, life...but more posts will be coming soon.
