Favorite stuff of the year Part I, by George Moore (The Cryptic Yeast, Full Rabbit Records)

2009 for me was all about the experimental hardcore, stoner metal, powerviolence, and grindcore. If you can't get into those genres, i'm sorry but i have nothing to offer you. Look at Pitchfork or Spin or something because i didn't venture too far outside of those genres, and i don't really regret it either. In all seriousness it was an AMAZING year for heavier music. it seems like every band i'm into, and even some i wasn't a huge fan of before, really stepped up their game and made some killer albums. so check it out, or don't:


20: Every Time I Die - New Junk Aesthetic




19: Kylesa - Static Tensions




18: Psyopus - Odd Senses




17: Napalm Death - Time Waits For No Slave




16: Narrows - New Distances




15: Weekend Nachos - Unforgivable



14: Battletorn - Reflect The Filth



13: Brutal Truth - Evolution Through Revolution




12: Gaza - He is Never Coming Back




11: Mastodon - Crack The Skye





10: Hatred Surge - Deconstruct




9: Isis - Wavering Radiant




8: Magrudergrind - Magrudergrind
