Ten Tracks That Shook Apart 2013 (And Held It Together)

carc

So 2013 ended up being a downer year with health scares involving metal titans, and the dark early loss of Jeff Hanneman. Summing up some tracks that lit up the year, and held things together, there are impressive explosions of extremity via Bölzer and Inquisition, crafty comebacks by Voivod and Carcass, spooky witch doom rock by Mansion and Purson, pop purulence by Ghost, and A BAND CALLED SLEAFORD MODS THAT I HAD TO CHECK UP AFTER SEEING MICK HARRIS TOUT THEM IN 101 CONSECUTIVE MORNING FACEBOOK FEEDS. And this doesn’t even include Wormlust!

SLEAFORD MODS – “Jolly F*cker” from 7″:

CARCASS – “Unfit for Human Consumption” from SURGICAL STEEL

GHOST – “Year Zero” from INFESTISSUMAM

INQUISITION – “Force of the Floating Tomb” from OBSCURE VERSES FOR THE UNIVERSE

VOIVOD – “Target Earth” from TARGET EARTH

PURSON – “Spiderwood Farm” from THE CIRCLE AND THE BLUE DOOR

MANSION – “Slumber Sermon” from WE SHALL LIVE

TAAKE – “Nordbundet” from GRAVKAMNRE KRONER OG TRONER
