Our Favorites Are Your Favorites Too – Part III – Show No Mercy: Pitchfork’s Metal Picks

December 15, 2008 Artist News No Comments

Pitchfork’s Brandon Stosuy published his Top Twenty Metal Albums last month in his Show No Mercy column, and three of our favorite face-melters of the year made the cut!  Weighing in at number six is Enslaved‘s Vertebrae on Nuclear Blast, brilliantly described as, “a smeary, tightly composed collection of progressive psychedelic post-black metal.”

At number ten we have Florida’s tech-minded prog metal elder statesmen, Cynic, with their first album in fifteen years, Traced In Air.  Released via French powerhouse Season of Mist, this reunion album is “a jam-packed, carefully orchestrated King Crimson-style tone poem.”

Darkthrone‘s fourteenth long-player Dark Thrones and Black Flags is sitting pretty at lucky number thirteen.  Stosuy calls the Peaceville release “one hell of a strange and compelling blackened punk collection.”

Check out the full list, along with many of the artists’ own picks, right here.
