Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: July 21st – July 27th

“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 21st — July 27th // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, July 21st

Black Goat – Black Goat (1997)

Underground legends!
Well, “legends” is a bit much
Just vile, raw and great


Monday, July 22nd

Dark Tranquillity – Skydancer (1993)

With all of the riffs
The best part of Skydancer
When he screams “Sanctum”

[Ryan Tysinger]

Tuesday, July 23rd

Gojira – From Mars to Sirius (2005)

Whales in space: not just
For Star Trek IV; also for
This kickass album.

[Dan Obstkrieg]

Wednesday, July 24th

Death – Individual Thought Patterns (1993)

Joining Chuck this time:
DeGeorgio, Hoglan, LaRocque
Bulletproof lineup


Thursday, July 25th

Colosseum – Chapter 2: Numquam

Beautiful epic
Between the creeping death strum
Melodies of life

[Ryan Tysinger]

Friday, July 26th

Gamma Ray – Empire of the Undead (2014)

Hellbent for metal
Because hellbent for disco…
Sounds really stupid


Saturday, July 27th

AC/DC – Highway To Hell (1979)

40th birthday
of Bon Scott’s final hurrah,
an all-time classic.

[Andrew Edmunds]


See you next week.

  1. I missed out on Black Goat apparently! That album rips.


  2. The vocals and riffs on that old Dark Tranquillity are a lot different from the later stuff I was familiar with. This album sounds more like Death than later DK. Interesting to see their evolution.


    1. Absolutely! Their first two are so chock full of that early melodic death sound before it became a “style” and are undeniable classics! I’ll always respect DT for going their own route in evolution, they never really fell into the cookie cutter trap
