Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: September 1st – September 7th

“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 September 1st — September 7th // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, September 1st

Shok Paris – Steel and Starlight (1987)

On tap for today
Classic Cleveland USPM
Hix’s voice is key


Monday, September 2nd

Malign – Fireborn EP (1998)

It was Labor Day
We didn’t do anything
Here’s a Malign song


Tuesday, September 3rd

Amorphis – Elegy (1996)

Herein lie the roots
Of the modern Amorphis
It just took a while

[Zach Duvall]

Wednesday, September 4th

Negură Bunget – Om (2006)

Primal, dark and lush
Om is a progressive classic
Born from fertile soil


Thursday, September 5th

The Dillinger Escape Plan & Mike Patton – Irony is a Dead Scene (2002)

Dillinger’s best work
And high up for Patton too
Good dogs do bad things

[Zach Duvall]

Friday, September 6th

Blind Guardian – Imaginations from the Other Side (1995)

Blind Guardian’s best?
It’s a fun debate to have
While strumming a lute


Saturday, September 7th

Revelation – For the Sake of No One (2009)

The most chill of dooms
Proggy but with riffs that weap
Float in the “Vigil”

[Zach Duvall]


See you next week.
