Byrd’s Ten Favorite 2011 Freebies (Part 5)
Ha! I just this moment realised that with these last two inclusions the little freebie list is split with a five-to-five mix of LPs and EPs. How did I not notice that? Anyway, these are my top two favorite freebies of the year and they both happen to have been introduced to me by TNOTB.
The list so far:
10. – Savage Messiah – A Plague of Conscience
09. – Blastanus – Collapse
08. – Meankind – 22.Zero
07. – The Apocryphal Order – S/T
06. – Incise – From the Crypts They Rise
05. – Immolation – Providence
04. – Ära Krâ – Ferne Tage
03. – Oak Pantheon – The Void
02. – Apocryphon – S/T
This self-titled EP from San Francisco’s Apocryphon found me through a Free Shit post at TNOTB. This is the type of ugly fuckin’ Death Metal stirred with just enough grind tendencies that I love. I hesitate to call it Old-school but there’s something about the vibe that takes me back to the early ’90s. Perhaps its that these guys are just real good students of the old school.
01. – Aurora Borealis – Timeline: The Beginning and End of Everything
This post at TNOTB drew my attention to these guys and inspired this post here at The Baboon way back in March. This onslaught of Blackened Death Metal has kept me comin’ back time and time again. There are two songs in our previous post and here’s a third sample of the savagery with Tearing Holes in the Fabric of Time.
Well, that’s a wrap on my favorite freebies of this year. I hope you found something you like out of them and if you know of some killer free stuff we may have missed let us know in the comments.
