Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: August 25th – August 31st

“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 25th — August 31st // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, August 25th

Mötley Crüe – Too Fast For Love (1982)

Punk plus metal plus
power pop, spandex, fire, and
make-up makes prime Crüe.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Monday, August 26th

Orphans Of Dusk – Revenant (2015)

Gothic doom and gloom
With a splash of melodeath
Be still mine sorrow

[Ryan Tysinger]

Tuesday, August 27th

Moonsorrow – Verisäkeet (2005)

Finnish lords stand tall
Dominance and majesty
Nothing more epic

[Zach Duvall]

Wednesday, August 28th

Bongripper – Hippie Killer (2007)

Slow doom, massive grooves
Aahhh, terrible bear attack!!
Eat shit you hippies


Thursday, August 29th

Queens Of The Stone Age – Rated R (2000)

Whatever you do
Don’t forget to bring a pill
Stoner alt brilliance

[Zach Duvall]

Friday, August 30

Yautja – Songs of Descent (2014)

Thunderous riffage
This is not pretty music
Good luck headbanging


Saturday, August 31st

Armored Saint – Symbol of Salvation (1991)

Sprawling and massive
The Saints at their most diverse
Reign of and on fire

[Zach Duvall]


See you next week.
