Last Rites’ Facebook Albums Of The Week: September 15th – September 21st

“Album Of The Day” is a Last Rites Facebook feature we started with a very straight-forward purpose: 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 15th — September 21st // HAIKU EDITION

Sunday, September 15th

Mekong Delta – Mekong Delta (1987)

German prog-thrash kings,
oodles of intricate riffs,
Mussorgsky cover.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Monday, September 16th

Deicide – Legion (1992)

Brutal, twitchy, blunt
Maniacal maze of riffs
Deathly evil fun

[Zach Duvall]

Tuesday, September 17th

Judas Priest – Unleashed In The East (1979)

Mostly live album
turns 40 today. Behold:
Victim Of Changes!

[Andrew Edmunds]

Wednesday, September 18th

Tiamat – Judas Christ (2002)

The world would be great
If when we went out to vote
We voted for love

[Zach Duvall]

Thursday, September 19th

Flotsam & Jetsam – Doomsday For The Deceiver (1986)

Arizona thrash,
melodic and kick-ass with
Newsted on the bass.

[Andrew Edmunds]

Friday, September 20th

Accept – Breaker (1981)

First Accept classic
Follow the “Starlight” to riffs
You son of a bitch

[Zach Duvall]

Saturday, September 21st

Rush – Clockwork Angels (2012)

Sprawling and winding
Rush at their damn heaviest
A golden finish

[Zach Duvall]

———

See you next week.
