Terrorizer #259: [8]+

Releases that scored [8] or more in Terrorizer magazine #259

So, Terrorizer #259 hit my digital ‘shelf’ last week, with a multitude of new heavy releases reviewed. Interestingly, the new Bell Witch album, Four Phantoms, scored a rare perfect [10], but was not selected for Album of the Month, this month going to Undersmile’s new album, Anhedonia, which scored an also very respectable [9].

  1. Well, looks like my future playlist just got booked up for many hours. Out of these I’ve only listened to the new Alkaloid album (great progressive death record) and the new Acid Witch album (a lot of fun).
    Just so you know, the new Arcturus album is a blast, as is Sigh’s new cd and Murdock’s album, Dead Lung, which was instant classic territory for me. You haven’t mentioned Murdock, but they sound a little like Calculating Infinty era Dillinger Escape Plan if that sounds like something you’d enjoy.
    Thanks for the list!

    1. I’ve not heard either the Acid Witch or Alkaloid albums due to their (hopefully just current and not permanent) unavailability on Spotify in the UK. I must say, that Bell Witch album is one of the best metal albums I’ve heard this decade so far.

      Waiting for the official release of the new Arcturus tomorrow (the opening track is incredible, as we discussed), and Sigh’s new one is great but a total mindfuck (expectedly?). Will check out the new Murdock album. Got a [7] in this very issue of Terrorizer, hence why it didn’t make it into this list, but of course we don’t always agree with our favourite magazines one way or the other. Love The Dillinger Escape Plan, but I’m definitely more of a Miss Machine / Ire Works guy, admittedly.

      You’re very welcome for the list – thanks for your comment!
