Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: July 7th – July 13th

“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 July 7th — July 13th.

Sunday, July 7th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Dio – Lock Up the Wolves (1990)

Lock up the wolves, man!
They make a mess of the house
Should’ve gotten cats


Monday, July 8th

Paradise Lost – Draconian Times (1995)

Changes sound to goth
after death / doom masterworks:
a new masterwork.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Tuesday, July 9th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Alice in Chains – Alice in Chains (1995)

Heftiest Alice
Sludgy, mean, and beautiful
Was it “Over Now?”

[Zach Duvall]

Wednesday, July 10th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Insect Warfare – World Extermination (2007)

More modern grindcore
Should sound like Insect Warfare
Keep the strut dirty


Thursday, July 11th

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Satanic Bloodspraying – At the Mercy of Satan (2012)

Yes that is their name
Brutal Bathory worship
Serious and dumb

Last Rites’ Album Of The Day // HAIKU EDITION

Pretty Maids – Future World (1987)

The artwork grabbed me
Ronnie Atkins voice kept me
Future World still rules

Mortiis – Født til å herske (1994)

Don your jet black cloak
Set your Casio to stun
Enter the dungeon

[Dan Obstkrieg]


See you next week.
