  • Kev’s 2014 albums of the year

    As I’m sure you know – each year Kev likes to list his top 20 albums of the year.  Picked across a broad sense of the so-called Shwarze-Szene that includes everything from Goth, Post-Punk, EBM, Industrial, Gothic-Metal, etc. it doesn’t include out and out rock and metal hence the absence of bands like The Marmozets and Beartooth (and he wasn’t quite sure where to place Pvris despite them often being played on his show)

    This is the list, if there’s someone there you don’t know – why not check them out? As always these are present in a podcast which you can listen to here

  • Kev36663’s albums of 2012

    It’s that time again when I publish my list of what I considered to be the best 20 albums of 2012.

    How I compile these, throughout the year I add any music I receive or buy to a spreadsheet and mark an X next to anything that I think could be a contender for the final 20.  Then, I spend a day working out which releases will formulate a top 20 and in which order.

    There are 284 releases on my spreadsheet from 2012 (though that does include some EPs – although, anything truly awful I delete from the sheet) and 43 were marked with an X and had to be trimmed down to the final 20.

    Anything within the Gothic, Industrial and related scenes are eligible for consideration – although I also DJ at a local rock night, I’ve never really followed albums with the same level of dedication – however, remix albums, live albums, ‘best of’ compilations, re-issues, EPs, etc. are not eligible.

    It’s probably likely that there are some albums not included in this list because I haven’t heard them  – but – see above on how many I’ve listened to this year!  It is very likely that there will be some surprise omissions, but a short answer being here that the first short-list was 43, the final list is 20 – and I felt it better to keep it down to 20 to add more value to those included, rather than increase the list…

    So, anyway….

    The top 20… in reverse order…

    20) Escape with Romeo – Samsara
    19) Radio DCS – I Try My Best To Mainstream
    18) Dead When I Found Her – Rag Doll Blues
    17) Lyriel – Leverage
    16) Dutch Order – Contact
    15) Lacuna Coil – Dark Adrenaline
    14) Assemblage 23 – Bruise
    13) Puppet Lane – Myths
    12) The Last Cry – Living in Grey
    11) Cryogenic Echelon – Antipode
    10) Uberbyte – 5 Year Plan
    9) Eisbrecher – Die Holle Muss Warten
    8) Cruxshadows – As the Dark Against My Halo
    7) Cold in Berlin – And Yet
    6) Mono Inc – After the War
    5) Lord of the Lost – Die Tomorrow
    4) The Beauty of Gemina – Iscariot Blues
    3) Lebanon Hanover – The World is Getting Colder
    2) Delain – We Are The Others
    1) Celldweller – Wish Upon a Blackstar
