Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: July 28th – August 3rd

“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 28th — August 3rd // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, July 28th

Corrosion of Conformity – In the Arms of God (2005)

Big riffs and rawness
A thundering monolith
No Reed, no problem

[Zach Duvall]

Monday, July 29th

Manilla Road –


Every time you play
A Manilla Road record
Mark the Shark smiles down


Tuesday, July 30th

Limbonic Art – Moon in the Scorpio (1996)

To be frank, the rest
Of this band’s stuff kinda honks.
‘Moon,’ though, fucking rules.

[Dan Obstkrieg]

Wednesday, July 31st

Sick Of It All – Blood, Sweat, and No Tears (1989)

Classic ‘core from these
NYC bruisers still kills.
It’s clobbering time.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Thursday, August 1st

Celestiial – Desolate North (2006)

Quite possibly the
Most ambient funeral
Doom album ever.

[Dan Obstkrieg]

Friday, August 2nd

Enslaved – Vertebrae (2008)

The crew here all know
I loathed this album for years
Shit, now you do, too


Now I’ve seen the light!
Vertebrae is amazing
Please forgive me, friends


Saturday, August 3rd

Suicidal Tendencies – Suicidal Tendencies (1983)

Hardcore beginnings
Of crossover kings. Get the
man a damn Pepsi.

[Andrew Edmunds]


See you next week.

  1. I love the random nature of these selections. The Sick of it All pick just reminds me of how gutted I am that I’ll be out of town when they play with Napalm Death.

    On the positive, late summer means it’s time to spin the Manilla Road discography again.
