I revisited my CD collection last year and listened to them from start to finish and re-rated them. Some of them it had been over 20 years since I listened to them all the way through. Some sounded better, some the same, and others worse.... when all said and done this is my top 100 factory studio albums..... some EP's are listed that have tracks that do not show up later on other studio albums and of course no greatest hits are included here...... I'll list them starting with #100 and working down to #1 listing 20 at a time each day......

This band has gone by several names over the years. Sounds like they are back to their roots going back to the Death Metal genre. Good CD but they could of left off some of the weaker tracks as this goes 15 strong.

Bring the fuzz.... only 5 tracks but over 50 minutes long the first 3 songs really bring it. A bit of a let down on the final track though.

Rome in Monochrome - Away From Light (2018)

My Ratings: 77.605
Rank: 317 (out of 1352)

Blackgaze

Best Song: Ghosts of Us [82.0]

Heard "Ghosts of Us" on the Live Doom Metal station and really liked it so I looked up this album. Well, I guess there is a "Dark Metal" genre now and there are elements of Doom Metal as well merged with Shoegaze. I really liked the front side of this album but the latter half lost the elements that I liked in the first....

Thought this was called ‘blackgaze’? Bands like Bethlehem, Moonspell, and Deafheaven?

Probably lean more towards the shoegaze side of things, or really, its precursors: Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Galaxie 500, Pixies, The Cure, New Order, The Smiths, Elliott Smith, and The Jesus & Mary Chain.

Much of the newer shoegaze (‘nu gaze’) incorporates electronica (which, with you being a metal guy, I doubt you’d like much): TRUST (Candy Walls; Bulbform), Digital Leather (Sea of Hate), Wavves (Linus Spacehead; So Bored), Hibou (Sunder), DIIV (Wait), Hooray For Earth (True Loves), Beach Fossils (Golden Age), Deerhunter (Desire Lines), M83 (My Tears Are Becoming A Sea), and Youth Lagoon (Dropla).

I agree, Blackgaze probably describes it better but the band lists "Dark Metal" and "Shoegaze" as their style. I had never heard of "Dark Metal" before so I looked it up and this is what it stated:

"Dark metal is a sub-genre of metal music that typically employs dark atmospheres, imagery or themes, often dealing with melancholy, dark romanticism, depression, sorrow and death."

That definitely describes their music but it seems to general to me and not specific enough. Plus, not every song on that album I would describe as being "Blackgaze" ... honestly it doesn't matter to me what ever they or anyone else wants to call it I just need to put something that describes it on my spreadsheet. I had just never heard that terminology before....
edit: thought about it more and decided to change it to Blackgaze. Dark Metal was just too vague.... thanks for bringing it up!

Never was a big Flotsam fan but this album was not too bad. Liked the first 9 tracks but did not care for the last 3 which were a bit too Power Metal sounding for my likes.

Best Song: Al [74.4]

I'll just quote what is on SMOD: "Haaze - Swamp Mama (New Full Album) Haaze is thick and heavy riffs with just a dash of guttural vocals that accent the ominous storm of chops that parade their sound. The Kings of "Swamp Riffs". They bring their guttural distorted sound blending stoner, doom, metal and sludge. Swamp Mama is their new full album. The swamp mama dwells in Red Deer, Alberta Canada"
