Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: August 11th – August 17th

“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 August 11th — August 17th // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, August 11th

Sanctuary – Into The Mirror Black (1990)

Future Tense: “what will
the 90s hold?” Nu-metal,

[Andrew Edmunds]

Monday, August 12th

Kowloon Walled City – Grievances [2015]

Moodier Helmet?
Is that a fair cross check here?
You get the idea.


Tuesday, August 13th

Gwar – America Must Be Destroyed (1992)

A concept album
About Oderus’ wang?
Grammy nod for film.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Wednesday, August 14th

Of The Wand And The Moon – The Lone Descent (2011)

Yeah, it’s not metal
But it sure does feel heavy
Often that’s enough


Thursday, August 15th

Incantation – Onward To Golgotha (1992)

Noxious murky tones
and blasphemy, the perfect
death/doom formula.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Friday, August 16th

Anubis Gate – Anubis Gate (2011)

Catchy prog power
These guys never disappoint
It’s gold, Jerry! Gold!


Saturday, August 17th

Znowhite – Act Of God (1988)

Often forgotten,
this thrash album does what thrash
should do: Kick your ass.

[Andrew Edmunds]


See you next week.
