Dyscarnate are fucking amazing!I was looking at Steel Panther tickets and they were £35! They're great but I'm not paying that.
“When ‘Holy Roller‘ took off, we knew that we wanted to use the follow up single as a statement to show that we are not just going to put out the same thing over and over. We wrote the music for this song at the same time as ‘Blessed Be‘ and ‘Rule Of Nines‘, but I hadn’t ever committed to lyrics.
I came to our director Dylan with a proposition: Let’s create the music video and the lyrical content of the song at the same time. We both felt compelled for the song and story to reflect the sorrow we both feel about our grandmothers passing away recently.
Due to border shut downs, I was not able to say goodbye to my grandmother Phyllis, to whom the song is in tribute, or attend her funeral. I always promised her that I would sing at her memorial service, because she always requested a “pretty song with none of that scary screaming”. I hoped writing this song with no “scary screaming” in it would help me find a sense of closure.
Dylan wrote his video concept to honour his grandmother, Constance to whom the video is in tribute. Our music videos usually have a horror element to them, and we wanted to explore a different side of horror: the horror of feeling like your mind is betraying you, due to a long battle with dementia. With Dylan’s permission, we named the song ‘Constance’ to immortalize her story.
I don't listen to a lot of black metal, but the vocals/guitar work/drumming/overall production is pretty good on this album
One of my favourite bands right now coming out with another fantastic track.
That's an amazing list. Really enjoyed that Polaris album as well but haven't listened to it enough yet. Kingdom of Giants was one of my new discoveries this year and that new record is really solid for sure!1. Polaris: The Death of Me
2. Invent Animate: Greyview
3. Bring me the Horizon: Post-Human: Survival Horror
4. Make Them Suffer: How to Survive A Funeral
5. Misery Signals: Ultraviolet
6. Sleep Token: Sundowning Deluxe
7. Protest the Hero: Palimpsest
8. Fit for a King: The Path
9. Currents: The Way it Ends
10. Kingdom of Giants: Passenger
I had a weirdly difficult time finding 10 albums I loved from this year. I feel like maybe COVID slowed down the release schedule? My top 5 here are albums that I absolutely loved. 6 is an album that I loved but is secretly from last year, and 7-10 are albums that I enjoyed, but probably wouldn't have cracked my top 10 in a more abundant year.

Not to stalk or anything but you got a last.fm (my profile) by any chance? Would be fun to check out our compatibility (and maybe hook up later grab a cup of coffee, suck each other off, etc).Thanks! Your list looks awesome too. There are some albums on there I haven't checked out yet. It seems like we have very similar taste in music, so I'm excited to dive into those!
