Albums that tore my 2010 apart:

A bit late perhaps, but here it is: My list of albums (in no particular order) that I enjoyed more than other releases in 2010:

  • Menace Ruine – Union of Irreconcilables (noisefolk)
  • Les Chants De Nihil – La Liberte Guidant le Fer (Black metal / suicidal)
  • The Body (MS)- All the Waters of the Earth shall turn to Blood (Sludge/ritual) Pitchfork agrees.
  • Luftwaffe – Ere I Perish (apocalyptic folk / martial industrial)
  • †‡† (rrritualzzz) – s/t (witch house)
  • Gnaw Their Tongues – L’arrivé de la terne mort triomphante (martial industrial / noise)
  • Urfaust – Der Freiwillige bettler (Black metal / Urfaust)
  • Inquisition – Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm (Black metal /think a much better and more interesting Satyricon meets Abbath )
  • Swans – My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope into the Sky (no wave / experimental)
  • Kiss The Anus of a Black Cat – Hewers of Wood and Drawers of Water (minimalistic folk)
  • Rome – Nos Chants Perdus (neofolk / singer/songwriter)
  • Sargeist – Let The Devil In (Black metal / melodic)
  • Nachtmystium – Black Meddle Pt. II (Black metal / unconventional)

Live album:

Interesting end year lists:
Pitchfork readers poll
Hammer Smashed Sound
/ Hauting the Chapel (Metal)
Barry / Peter (booker) / Tijs (from Incubate)

And I’m looking forward to:

Order of the Source Below (with singer of Nihill)
Preterite (with Genevieve of Menace Ruine)
And from the top of my head: Der Blutharsch, Dornenreich and :Of the Wand and the Moon: come with new material. That’s all I can think of right now, but of course there are many more.

If you think I missed some great releases, don’t hesitate to add them in the comments.

    • Ah yeah, very good additions, I have An Autumn for Crippled Children laying around somewhere, and that one’s definitely one that fits in above! Haven’t heard the Airs album yet, but I will check it out. Thanks!
