I tested SoundMorph Dust by accident. I spent so much time with it I had to get it. I am not sure how much use I get from it. Here I talk why I liked it so much and what I didn't like it and what limits it has.
Short video about winter 2019. This was done before we got more snow than any winter since 1950’s. Other thing changed since making this video is DJI Osmo Pocket’s firmware which gave camera promised cinelike color profile about one and half months after camera was released.
This is little bit late here because I haven’t felt too good lately. I still try to publish next video on schedule. This not feeling too well is reason why this blog has been silent lately. I try to get this up to speed when I start to feel normal again.
Short video from last week's Lux Helsinki 2019. Footage is from two different night. There might be some continuity errors because of that.
Here is little video of my new year's resolutions or lack of them. I talk about aspect ratios in the video. When I uploaded it to Youtube I found out why no-one use different aspect ratios here. You can't use end screen if you use different aspect ratios than 16:9. This means I will get back to 16:9 on next video.
Third part. These are not in any other order than in order I remember them. First two parts have 16 albums I remembered first. Here is eight more. Who said good music isn’t released anymore?
Mesarthim: The Density Parameter
Mesarthim would be one of those bands whose music I could buy without listening it first if I wasn’t subscribed to their record label and getting all label’s albums when they are released. Mesarthim is big reason why I am still subscriber. Other reason is hope that Dark Space releases new album.
Christina Vantzou: No. 4
Some might call this cheating. I just found Christina Vantzou and felt in love with her music. I have to add here 2018 album to the list.
Ursa: Abyss Between the Stars
That album cover says this is amazing or really terrible. Spoiler alert. It is amazing. I found this from best albums of 2018 list like this one. If I have understood correctly this is death metal or back metal band’s side project. Based on this album maybe they should consider which band is side project.
Legend of the Seagullmen: Legend of the Seagullmen
Legend of the Seagullmen is supergroup of members of big bands who want to do something less serious. It could be terrible idea. Not always. Not this time.
Atrium Carceri, Cities Last Broadcast, God Body Disconnect: Miles to Midnight
Have I told you I like Cryo Chamber? If I had to pick their best album of 2018 it would either be this one or Atrium Carceri’s solo Codex which was in second part.
Crippled Black Phoenix: Great Escape
I wonder why I didn’t remember this earlier. Crippled Black Phoenix is one of my all time favorite bands but I couldn’t remember this was released few months ago. Maybe it is because all their albums are great albums. Or I pre-ordered album and got songs one by one. Like I said these are not in order of which one was the best one.
Alphaxone & Xerxes the Dark: Aftermath
Yes. Cryo Chamber. I like them. A lot. Could have added more of their albums here but I didn’t want this to list to be half Cryo Chamber list. One more to go.
Sulphur Aeon: The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos
I know this is cheating. Album will be released on Friday. But I know it will be one of my favorite albums of 2018. Their previous two albums are among my all time favorite death metal albums. Two songs they have released show they will continue to do what they did in their last two albums.
If there is fourth part it will not be during this year. There are still few albums from 2018 I need to check. If they turn out to be good I will write the forth part. If not these 24 albums have to do.
These are not in order. You can find first part here.
Did you expect me not including this one? I wrote whole post telling Necronomidol is best thing at the moment. Only disappointment was album included so many previously released track. Including Strange Aeons which was originally released Strange Aeons EP. Which was also released this year.
Thom Yorke: Suspiria soundtrack
I haven’t seen the movie. As Radiohead fan I was curious to hear what Thom Yorke can do as soundtrack composer. I wasn’t disappointed.
Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats: Wasteland
First part had few bands who don’t seem to be able to make bad music. Here is one more. Wasteland was Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats’ 2018 album. What can I say? They just keep on doing what they are good at.
Atrium Carceri: Codex
Time for more Cryo Chamber. Guy behind Atrium Carceri is the guy behind Cryo Chamber label. This year he released new album under name Atrium Carceri. I am not sure which album I bought first from Cryo Chamber. If it wasn’t ProtoU’s it could have been Atrium Carceri’s. Both were one of the first ones.
The Sword: Used Future
I found The Sword when they made doom metal. They have moved closer to ZZ Top since. I don’t have all their albums between their doom days and Used Future. Decided to give the album a change and it worked.
Clutch: Book of Bad Decisions
I am not saying Tuska Open Air Metal Festival was correct venue for Clutch but damn they were good that day. Since that day I have listened lot of Clutch. They will be my most listened band of 2018 even when I found them this summer. You can say I like the band.
The Prodigy: No Tourists
I am not biggest dance music fan but I like The Prodigy. It is like punk made with electronic instruments. New album has enough good tracks to get it to this list.
I like Ghost’s first albums more than their current glam rock but Prequelle still has some really good songs like Rats. I had to wait for release date because I bought special edition with Ghost’s version of Pet Shop Boys’ It’s a Sin. Otherwise I could have pre-ordered the album and got this song weeks earlier.
There will be at least one more part. It will come in few days. Maybe that one album get released before I have gone through this list.
