GD’s verdicts – Best of 2013_Cobal

GD’s verdicts – Best of 2013: Cobal

25/12/13  ||  Cobal

1. Black Sabbath: 13

One of the fans who had the chance to attend the global premiere
show of “13” said it all: “Thank you for reminding the world what heavy
music sounds like”.

Recommended song: Damaged Soul

2: Darkthrone:The Underground Resistance

The only thing that’s more metal than the very genesis of the genre
is fucken speed metal, the 80s way. Played by a Norwegian black metal
act in the 21st century, that is.

Recommended song: Valkyrie

3: Satyricon: Satyricon

What Satyricon themselves consider to be the sum of their whole career. They are right about that.

Recommended song: Phoenix

4: Carcass: Surgical Steel

As I’ve stated before, this is all raw, melodic and groovy. A killer.

Recommended song: Unfit for Human Consumption

5: Watain: The wild hunt

Never listened to any Watain’s before. That’s probably because I’m a
bit too much into Norwegian stuff. Norwegian’s good. Anyway, I’ve been
missing a lot.

Recommended song: The Child Must Die — and I fucken agree.

CLOSE BUT NO SHOT OF MEZCAL:

Ghost: Infestissumam

Ghost: Infestissumam

Not as freaking awesome as its predecessor. Still pretty amazing.

Suffocation: Pinnacle of bedlam

Suffocation: Pinnacle of bedlam

Suffocation is quality guarantee. Guaranteed.

Helloween: Straight out of hell

Helloween: Straight out of hell

A lesson on how to play power metal and not suck pumpkin ass while trying.

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals: Walk through exits only

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals: Walk through exits only

Every-fucken-body hated this, it appears. I didn’t. A ball-statement if you ask me.

MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENTS OF 2013:

Burzum: Sol austan, mani vestan

Burzum: Sol austan, mani vestan

While I did enjoy Varg’s previous ambient ventures — namely “Dauði Baldrs” and “Hliðskjálf”, this one is telling me nothing. NOTHING.

Megadeth: Super collider

Megadeth: Super collider

Just kidding. We all know Mustaine is nothing but full of shit these days. No real disappointment.

The Dillinger Escape Plan: One of us is the killer

The Dillinger Escape Plan: One of us is the killer

What the HELL? Either these guys already stopped trying or they’re trying too hard. We’ve lost them forever.
