I love Amaranthe. I love Powerwolf’s last few albums. I love covers.

This is Amaranthe doing a cover of a Powerwolf song. This may be on repeat in my head.

This little gem combines female-fronted metal with an almost anime-feel to the songs. It could be because their Japanese. Kinda like how Brits sound smart due to their accent and dialect.

2018 Top Albums

Editor’s Comments:

For this week’s Metal Tuesday, The Brother asked if he could write up his favorite albums of 2018. Although his tastes run a bit differently than mine, he knows his music.

I have so much music for y’all. This year I decided to do two versions of my Top Albums list; one without any death metal and one with the heavy stuff. I’m considerate like that. For each album, I list the general genre and links to Apple Music, Spotify, or YouTube (some sources more official than others on YouTube).

I also call out a couple of EPs that I really liked and at the end are a list of honorable mentions (in no particular order).

The Heavy Stuff

  1. Rivers of Nihil – Where Owls Know My NameTechnical Death Metal: or or
  2. Omnium Gatherum – The Burning ColdMelodic Death Metal: or or
  3. Psycroptic – As the Kingdom DrownsTechnical Death Metal: or or
  4. Amorphis – Queen of TimeMetal: or or
  5. Slugdge – Esoteric MalacologyDeath Metal: or or

No Death!

Now, I also understand that a lot of people are not, shall we say, fans of death metal. This is for y’all.

Yay for a new female-fronted band. With a catchy name even.
