Why I Still Buy CD’s and Vinyl

Topheth by Novae Militiae

Novae Militiae – Topheth [Blackened Death Metal]

Novae Militiae are on my growing list of bands who play the “evil” card perfectly, properly avoiding doing anything too traditionally, unless we count the tradition of blasting the listener into submission, with technical precision and free-flowing style. I’m impressed.

Anachronism - Orogeny (album cover artwork)

Anachronism – Orogeny [Technical Death Metal]

The longer it takes for everyone else to discover this album, the more I like it. This is one of the best tech-death metal albums in recent years, in my opinion, and I hope the band continues doing what they’re doing here.
