Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: June 23rd – June 29th

“Album Of The Day” is a Last Rites Facebook feature we started whose purpose is quite straight-forward: highlight one album per day and say a few words about it. Understanding that not everyone chooses to participate in the booking of faces, we thought it might be nice to toss in a feature that gathers the albums in a single piece on a weekly basis.

Here are the seven albums we picked for the week of June 23rd — June 29th.

Sunday, June 23rd

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Kreator – Endless Pain (1985)

Feel the endless pain!
It really smarts, doesn’t it?
Kreator is mean

[Captain]

Kiss – Dressed To Kill (1975)

Pretty cool for mimes?
Not really, a bunch of pricks,
but “She” still kicks ass.

[Andrew Edmunds]

The Axis of Perdition – The Ichneumon Method (And Less Welcome Techniques) (2003)

Abject horror and
Shrill mechanistic unease
And monstrous riffs, too.

From weirdo alterna-kings
Still rules hard today

Drone’s a funny thing:
Simple sound, hard to get right.
Altar burns it down.
