Metal Workgroup’s Year In Review

WOBC METAL

2014 has been as tumultuous a year for metal as it has been for Oberlin and the world at large. Formerly rigid classifications have been bent backwards and broken, warped into positions a chiropractor wouldn’t even dream possible. This lack of regard for convention has allowed metal genres to shake off some of the stagnancy of the early 2010s, and has paved the way for seemingly disparate elements to synergize in unexpected harmonies, culminating in some of the most compelling metal music that’s ever been produced. Below is a list (in alphabetical order) of the most intriguing records metal workgroup has looked at over the course of the last year, dominated by Profound Lore and Relapse Records. Links to listen to album or song streams are available in the respective album titles:

Artificial Brain – Labyrinth Constellation (Profound Lore)

The Body/The Haxan Cloak – I Shall Die Here (Rvng. Intl)

Conan – Blood Eagle (Napalm)

Earth – Primitive And Deadly (Southern Lord)

Electric Wizard – Time To Die (Spinefarm)

Ethereal Riffian – Aeonian (Mulligore Production)

Gridlink – Longhena (Selfmadegod)

Indian – From All Purity (Relapse)

Inter Arma - The Cavern (Relapse) (most-chosen album by workgroup participants)

Job For A Cowboy – Sun Eater (Metal Blade)

Lord Mantis – Death Mask (Profound Lore)

Old Man Gloom – The Ape of God (Double Release – Pt 1 Pt 2) (Profound Lore)

Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden (Profound Lore)

Pyrrhon – The Mother of Virtues (Relapse)

Sterilizer – Sterilizer (Independent)

Swans – To Be Kind (Young God)

Today Is The Day - Animal Mother (Southern Lord)

Wrekmeister Harmonies – Then It All Came Down (Thrill Jockey)
