YETI’S IN ROTATION: METAL YETI JANUARY 2020
Time moves at an incredible pace sometimes. There are days where it seems to stand still, but I now find myself missing weeks in the flurry of things. I haven’t had much time to search for new metal, but old classics have been keeping me busy for the most of it. I think it best that everyone who reads this takes 5 deep breaths and follows up with some time to relax. Here are a few heavy tunes from the Yeti to help you out with that! Metal Yeti
Gorguts – The Erosion of Sanity
Roadrunner Records – January 1993
As time goes on I relate more to this album. This one can at times seem like the forgotten Gorguts album, living in the shadow of their other stunning releases. Give it the respect it deserves and blast some quality death metal!
Testament – Dark Roots of the Earth
Nuclear Blast – July 2012
I’ve said it before and god damn i’m saying it again. Testament are one of the most consistently wicked thrash bands out there. They have been putting out killer albums the last few years and I am more than excited to see what they have up their sleeves for the new album this year! In the meantime, I’ve been blasting a lot of Dark Roots.
Strapping Young Lad – Alien
Century Media – March 2005
You know that feeling of missing a damn good show… Well a few weeks back I had to sell my Devin Townsend ticket for double booking over travel dates and god damn did I miss a good set. Oh well, what the hell are ya supposed to do? Blast some FUCKIN LOVE!?
Animals As Leaders – Animals as Leaders
Prosthetic Records – April 2009
I’ve been traveling a lot the past few weeks and had some time to catch up with old playlists. CAFO by Animals as Leaders came on somewhere along the line and god damn what a tune. Songs within songs and layers of brilliant madness overlapping with a heavy as hell frontline. Animals as Revolutionaries more like it.
Warforged – Essence of the Land
Metal Blade Records – January 2014
Warforged are one of those bands that satisfy so many itches. They are technical yet grim, powerful yet chilling, and they always go for the goddamn throat. Close your eyes and drift away with this landmark blackened death metal EP from yesterdecade.
