Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: June 30th – July 6th

“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 30th — July 6th.

Sunday, June 30th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Entombed – Wolverine Blues (1993)

Death and roll with a
Comic book look, stripped back
But it’s still got claws.

Monday, July 1st

Anaal Nathrakh – The Codex Necro (2001)

Mechanized nightmare
De Mysteriis gone grindcore?
Beginning the end

[Zach Duvall]

Tuesday, July 2nd

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Cradle of Filth – Dusk… And Her Embrace (1996)

Vampiric magick
Blasts hard but aims its rich tones
At pure majesty.

[Dan Obstkrieg]

Wednesday, July 3rd

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Black Flag – My War (1984)

Origin of sludge?
B-side heavy as a tank
Nothing left inside

Thursday, July 4th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Agoraphobic Nosebleed – Altered States Of America (2003)

One hundred songs in
Twenty minutes? Yep, it’s grind.
Loud, fast, ugly rules.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Friday, July 5th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Pyrrhon – Growth Without End (2015)

Death through brevity
A noisy death grind whirlwind
Never stop spreading

[Zach Duvall]

Saturday, July 6th

Iron Maiden – Iron Maiden (1980)

Legend begins here,
rawer than they would end up,
but pointing the way.

[Andrew Edmunds]


See you next week.
