Lightning Swords Of Death have always been a pretty solid band that I interviewed last January. Both The Golden Plague and The Extra Dimensional Wound were fantastic albums that I still enjoy and I have been wondering when the band would release their next offering. Guitarist Roskva told me in January of 2011 that the band was working on a new album and here we are, almost two years later, we get our first taste of new Lightning Swords Of Death since 2010’s The Extra Dimensional Wound.
It’s that time of year again: when we tell all of you folks what our favorite albums of 2012 were. Well, like last year I have compiled a few different lists and I wanted to start off with this one.
Who doesn’t love split albums? I mean, getting not one, but two bands on a single record is a thing of beauty. I listened a shit-ton of split albums this year and it was a pain in my ass narrowing down to only ten splits. This is what I have come to think of as the best split releases of 2012.
I started posting about around this time last year and I still love Cara Neir. Modern black metal done the right way, incorporating post-metal influences as well as gnarly grindcore and even… Stuff I can’t even comprehend. When Cara Neir and Ramlord released their split earlier this year I was blown away. When they also released their Sublimation Therapy EP this year I thought to myself, how the fuck can this band keep getting more and more awesome?
With 2013 looming just around the corner, I have started receiving promos of some 2013 releases and one that I cannot stop listening to is the new 7″ by God’s America. God’s America were formerly known as Seeds of Rape, who I posted about last year and they are bringing one of the nastiest, grimiest, flith-ridden albums of 2013 in the form of Out Bones Will Bleach In The Sun. Don’t believe me? Stream two of the ten tracks off of the album below. If they don’t blow your mind, I want to know why. Stream or die.
