Picks Of The Month: September 2017

The run-up to our AOTY lists has begun, but nothing is set in stone yet because once again we’ve been impressed by a lot of stuff in August. Here’s some of our very favourites…

Nat’s Picks

Atrox – Monocle
Track to check out: Mass
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/atrox-monocle-review/

One of those albums you can’t listen to once. Immersive, unique and seriously ass-kicking, Monocle is an incredibly powerful listen.

Magenta Harvest – …And Then Came The Dust
Track to check out: When Your World Turns To Glass
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/magenta-harvest-came-dust-review/

I loved this talented band’s debut, but …And Then Came The Dust is somehow even better! If you haven’t checked out Magenta Harvest yet, what are you waiting for?

Jay Ray – Self-Resonance
Track to check out: Left Of You
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/jay-ray-self-resonance-review/

I’m a sucker for electronic metal, and when it’s done as well as this, it’s a recipe for success.

Dave’s Picks

Devilish Impressions – The I
Track to check out: The Dove And The Serpent
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/devilish-impressions-i-review/

It’s a funny way to spell definitive but okay.

Satyricon – Deep Calleth Upon Deep
Track to check out: The Ghost of Rome
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/41835-2/

A kind of best of album, Satyricon’s newest album has a touch of everything they have ever done running through its veins. Making for a very clever article of grand proportions.

Paradise Lost – Medusa
Track to check out: No Passage For The Dead
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/paradise-lost-medusa-review/

Before I start mincing words around. Words like Leviathan, Monumental and Herculean. Let me just say that this album is all that. ‘Nuff said.
