Sound Off: Let’s Hear Your Favorite Fall Albums

Share:

Now that we’re fully into the best goddamned month of the year, it’s time to spin those albums that remind us of the season.

Since my neural net processor, a learning computer, is currently suffering from the early strains of Ebola (or a cold, I’m not sure yet), I’m gonna keep this entry short & sweet and let the songs and your comments do the talking.

First and foremost: since picking up Author & Punisher‘s Drone Machines on a cold night in early October a few years back, the bitter, haunting creep of album opener Sand, Wind and Carcass has become my favorite herald for that first autumn night when the never-ending procession of horror movies begins, the Halloween decorations come out of storage, the pumpkin beer flows and I start longingly looking for new silicone masks.

On the occasion that I need to step out into the woods (ov hell?) for a hike every now & then to enjoy the blood-red, fire-orange and corpseflesh-yellow leaves, Ghost of Perdition from Opeth‘s Ghost Reveries hits that sweet spot of just enough heaviness mixed with just enough melody & atmosphere to complement the cooler air, the lengthening nights, and the fact that I have to go home afterward and carve a pumpkin only I can’t carve a pumpkin for shit and always fuck the thing up and usually just stick a bunch of nails in it and say “it’s supposed to be Pinhead, see?” but screw it I love doing it anyway.

Finally, and I think a lot of us share this opinion, is pretty much the entirety of Type O Negative‘s October Rust. Peter Steele was a towering god among men when it came to penning lyrics about despair, nature and Halloween (sometimes all in the same song), and it’s clear this album was meant to be played on cold, rainy autumn days & nights where you can fully embrace and enjoy the briefest, most beautiful of the seasons before the onset of winter all too quickly wipes it away with its plummeting temperatures and four months of holiday season jingles. Ugh *shudder*

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE FALL ALBUM? Share & discuss in the comments below. 

  • Do you like to go heavy or light? Do you STAY GRIND straight through the fall, or mellow out as needed?
  • Do you branch out into listening to new artists & genres, or stick to old favorites?
  • Or do you simply not give a fuck and listen to whatever, whenever?
  • Helen Keller

    I would share mine, but I can’t hear anything.

  • Tyree
    • Xan

      Excellent album! I tend to like death doom a lot more in the fall. It is a ritual where I go through the entire discography of Novembers Doom in the fall.

      • Keegan Lavern Still

        I tend to do that in winter, especially with My Dying Bride and the Swedish Shining.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      I’ll lead you into danger / And all that troubles Man / I’ll lead you far from hunger / Just take my frozen hand

      I believe it was somewhere around here that I became a full doom convert. That crushing melancholy, grey skies and hard ground that could still swallow you, and the black night that may be your only hope. It’s great stuff.

      • Tyree

        The lyrics are beautifully cold and poetic. Brilliant album! I can’t wait to listen to all of it again. Hail Fall and Winter!

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          And stouts………….

          • Tyree

            That too.

  • Xan
    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      first album is already classic, second album is almost as good.

  • Stockhausen

    Randall Thorr’s favorite fall album.

  • This band is the EPITOME of lifeloving but I like to listen to their albums every fall during the two or three days it gets slightly chilly.

    • Xan

      It’s 40 degrees in my room right now. I’m so happy.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      I saw them at my first festival after smoking far more than I was able to handle. Apparently they were great, but for me it was ninety minutes of “The horror…. the horror…” and I’ve not listened to them since.

    • Guacamole Jim

      You weren’t kidding about lifeloving. I’m experiencing feelings of … joy! and gladness! It’s terrible!! AUTUMN IS DEPRESSING GERD DERMERT

  • Death

    Thunder Perfect Mind is my favourite fall album. It’s such a great album.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      No love for Otta?

      • Death

        I love Otta, but I was talking about old albums that I always listen to when it’s autumn. Otta is a great album, but it’s a new album.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          Right you are, but it seems the epitome of an autumn/fall album to me

          • Death

            It is a great autumn album. Maybe it will become a standard autumn album for me.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Is tpm current 95?

          • Death

            Current 93

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Them I ment, don’t know why I got the number wrong

          • Death

            U dun goofed mate. TPM one of the few absolutely flawless albums for me. It’s just perfect.

  • Xan

    Though I still listen to a heavy dose of everything during the fall, I tend to jam some of the slower artists for whatever reason. Woods of Ypres (which I’m totes going to write something on), Novembers Doom, My Dying Bride, and A Pale Horse Named Death. I tend to listen to a bit more folk metal in the fall. I’ll probably jam some Eluveitie, Moonsorrow, Ensiferum, and Arkona here in a few weeks.

    • The Satan Ov Hell

      I will await your woods of ypres write up with baited breath

  • Guacamole Jim

    I know it’s referenced above, but all of Ghost Reveries is a phenomenal fall album. It’s haunting and bleak, yet has the ferocity of the impending Canadian winter. Anything by Katatonia is usually good for the fall atmosphere as well (those guys are a bunch of unhappy dudes). Fall is a time for the bleak.

    • Xan

      Fuck, I forgot about Katatonia! I need to jam some of their shit soon.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Night is the New Day, all the way man. All the way.

      • Beunhaas

        Dead End Kings is great as well.

        • Guacamole Jim

          Katatonia is one of those rare bands where they pretty much release the same album over and over, and I fucking love every single one.

          • Beunhaas

            They know how to make heart-wrenching songs, that’s for sure.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Except given the first one, brave and the new one. Not the same at all

        • Link D. LeonhⒶrt V.

          <3 dat album

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      New York winters are extremely ferocious and cruel. Last year we had a lot of snowstorms that brought two feet of snow. I don’t even live in Buffalo where that is a common occurrence, I live halfway between Albany and New York City.

      • Guacamole Jim

        Yeah, I have heard that, actually! I’ve never been in the area, so haven’t experienced it personally, but I know there are places in the States that get pummelled with vicious storms. Here in Alberta we don’t really get lots of storms, it’s just very, very cold. And the snow doesn’t stop.

  • Xan

    In other news, I found a band that bases their lyrics on hating people with the name “Ben”. http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Anti-Ben/74299

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      This is what happens when people habe too much time on their hands, get a job hippies

    • Gurp

      Ben is a dick.

      • Xan

        He’s just the worst.

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      Thats my name ):

      • Xan

        Form a band called Anti-Anti-Ben and assault the fuckers.

        • Between The Buried & Smee

          I’lll get Ben Weiman to join.

          • Xan

            Get Uncle Ben from Spider-Ma….oh…that’s right.

  • Beunhaas

    AGALLOCH – THE MANTLE

    The first black metal album I liked. Still really good.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHJjSSrR6x4

    16 HORSEPOWER – FOLKLORE

    beautiful album, a personal favorite. Most of the songs on here are covers of old folk songs

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2uC5IMaU9w

    OCTOBER FALLS – MARRAS

    It even has October in the name, so you know it’s going to be good.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uZUxsV-Vms

    NEBELUNG – PALINGENESIS

    This one evokes the spirit of fall so fucking well. the entire album feels like a walk through a forest.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOay1rfsmyQ

    • W.

      I prefer this one in winter, but I see what you’re getting at.

      • Beunhaas

        The other albums I listed have a lot more fall to them.

      • Gurp

        Listening to black metal in honest-to-god winter (like, with snow) for the first time was a bit of a revelatory experience.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          Only winter is snowy winter, otherwise ’tis a prolonged autumn.

          • Gurp

            Well, when you live in Florida most of your life, it’s okay to pretend the 15 degree drop is winter, sometimes.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Jep, it’s okay to call +15 degrees a summer here…

          • I just noticed the way you spelled that and figured you must be a German-speaker 🙂

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Actually Finnish is my native language. Further from German than English is. Even if I have read a little German in high school, it may have stuck. Or maybe I just speak funny.

          • Oh yeah, you mentioned that you were from Suomi-land 🙂 Great nation with awesome history IMO. One WW2 story I never tire of hearing is the one about how Finland sent the invading Russian army back from whence they came.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            And then foolishly became the aggressor against them… But yeah, It’s hard to say here that I sorta feel national pride of it but I kinda do

          • I would too. Simo Häyhä should have a monument erected in his honor.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            He’s someone I can relate to. “I fulfilled my orders, I may not be proud of it, but I always fulfilled them as well as I could” or something. Also Lauri Törni was an interesting fellow.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Relate as far as war goes that is

          • Finland has some great history and little to be ashamed of. They repaid the US all the money lent to them in support of WW2 (prior to American entry.) It was a lot of money in a time when US people were still recovering from the Great Depression and Finland repaid it with gratitude…unlike some of our other “allies” who never repaid their debts. (Only England after several years but at least they were trying.)

            I’m not trying to kiss your ass or those of your ancestors but I genuinely respect the hell out of Finland in general.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I know. It’s just hard to be proud of your own history here if you don’t wanna get labelled a nationalist

          • Here in ‘murika it’s like a requirement to act ultra-patriotic. I served in two different branches of the military and I don’t get nearly as douchey as most people here do.

          • Cock ov Steele

            What was the other branch you served? I know one was army.

          • Air Force (by way of the Air National Guard.) I had to go through both basic trainings lol.

          • crazytaco_12

            A lot of my family was in the military; I asked my dad if he was proud of it and he said he didn’t really care, just a job. Then a buddy of mine joined the military and acts like big shit all the time that I can’t even be around him anymore. It’s crazy man, some people just fucking ego-trip hard from that shit.

          • Tell me about it. People always say to me “thank you for your service” and I often reply “thank my Grandfather instead. He was in the 2nd Great Hate.”

            People act like you have to be really special to be in the military. One can’t be that elite and unique when millions of others have done the same thing.

            I hear you about the ego-tripping. I was an MP and saw a LOT of it from others in the same MOS. People thought they were really special and loved to lord over others. Kinda like a whole lot of regular cops in the US now.

          • more beer

            People only started that thank you shit after 9/11 before that no one could have given a shit.

          • Possibly because so many of our cops are ex-military?

          • Guppusmaximus

            Yea, I was in the Marines but never saw any action and always get the “Thank You” when people find out. Actually, its pretty fricken irritating, firstly, because the majority of people in this country proudly decry being a conscientious objector. So, it seems rather contradictory.
            Secondly, as you said, my father fought in Vietnam. He had to deal with shit I could never fathom and he probably never ever got thanked for his service because of all the hippies crying “Baby Killer”.

          • JWG

            Here we have three seasons. The first I have dubbed “not-Winter”, which lasts 10 months of the year (or at least feels like it). Snow is vague possibility for one or two days in not-Winter, but otherwise it just gradually changes from mild to midler. And there’s a LOT of rain.

            The second, “Summerish” takes up one month randomly stuck anywhere from July to October. It’s almost Summer but then again not really. So it’s definitely Summer-ish.

            The third, “Drop” is so-named because it’s nowhere near emphatic enough to be called “Fall” (let alone Autumn). It’s about a 2-3 week period just after Summerish. It’s heralded by a sudden change lasting a few days during which every acorn and horse-chestnut in the neighbourhood falls off every tree almost all at once. But only exactly when your car is parked underneath. Further tests to prolong “Drop” by not parking under trees are inconclusive since parking attendants seem to give tickets exclusively to vehicles not left under trees.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    (1/3) As the leaves fall and I take my morning walk, this song plays. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f65zWQdpxTw&rdm=19wei42h2&client=mv-google

    • CyberneticOrganism

      HIGH FIVE

  • Keegan Lavern Still

    Not listening to Type O in the fall is an absolute crime. Also, for me Woods of Ypres is good for practically all year round. I’ll probably be jamming Woods of Desolation regularly when I finally get around to listening to it, too.

    • Death

      Are you going to arrest me then?

      • Keegan Lavern Still

        Well, since you’re indirectly responsible for the death of Peter Steele by… well, being… you, yes. I shall. It likely won’t go particularly well, though.

        That song is basically the month in song form. It’s perfect.

        The Misfits are the only band that personifies Halloween and the month of October. They are coming near me as they do every year. I shall go see them again as they were very good last year.

    If I need something melancholic and retrospective I come to this compilation: http://en.prophecy.de/various-artists-whom-the-moon-a-nightsong-sings.html Also, last Váli album is very emotional-varied, perfect in my internal angst of witness the fall season.. When it comes to Halloween I blast some Misfits, some traditional Death Metal and some King Diamond too 😀 this year I will include Iced Earth and Autopsy.

    I’m a little bitter about the fact that Dead Again isn’t on Spotify.

      Duuuuude I love this album so much. One of my faves.

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        It sure is great. Took a while growing on me, appropriately given the mossy, opiate ritual in forgotten grove vibe. Don’t tend to listen to it for about 2/3’s of the year but its perfect July through October.

    Black Lotus: “Harvest of Seasons”.

    The song ‘Statues in Auburn’ even refers to this very month:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5Ksv7iIeJg

    “Upon the earth descends a dwindling crown
    A line of deciduous kings throned in ancient groves
    The winds of October bear their royalty
    A solemn veil of splendour before the winters wrath”

          I remember going to the theater for that one. Good times.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            went to the christmas one , the theatre was letting people come in and sit on the floor. Never seen people laugh so much.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah I went to see that one too people were losing it. I sat on the floor for the Beavis and Butthead movie. Funny theater story, I used to work at one and I was sweeping there one night and this really obese lady came out of the theater looking really uncomfortable so I asked if I could help. She looked around to make sure no one else could hear and then told me she couldn’t fit in the seats and asked if we had any other chairs. I think I did a pretty good job of keeping my face expressionless. We had some plastic chairs but I knew there was no way that was happening so I told my manager and he gave me his office chair because it had no armrests. I felt really good because she was so grateful and I kept it quiet. I really felt sorry for her. Then about 20 minutes later I went in to check the theater and the chair was totally broken and she was gone.

          • Good on you. Poor lady.

          • Scrimm

            I felt so bad for her but it was so funny at the same time.

    • Leif Bearikson

      MIAK! I bet you didn’t think I could find any this time of year. Well I’m a little too resourceful for ya, a little too light on my feet.

        • Same here. Hopefully we get a single soon

  • King Diamond. Seeing him next week in Worcester.

    • Scrimm

      Seeing him on November third. Been far too long.

  • KJM

    Opeth and Type O are a given at this time of year.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Alsö alsö, lots of Björk. Preferably the latest album mixed with hyperballad

      • Death

        Never really “got” Björk

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          Personally there are a couple of songs I love and the latest album despite not that good is very suitable for the season

          • Death

            Okay, a honest confession: I’ve never really liked female vocals. There are some exceptions, but most of the time I find myself not liking them. I really don’t know why.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Missing many a good band

          • Death

            I’m just an evil cis scum white straight male that likes to oppress women.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I figured death’d be like that, if it wasn’t a she that is. That would have been my first guess, but then the oppression wouldn’t make sense

          • Death

            I’m part of the evil patriarchy. I enforce the rape culture (which like totally exists).

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Of course it does. I’ll enforce down your throat if you need convincing

            Spooky plot twist: it’s you!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            So…I should rip myself apart. How about I just give myself a bearhug.

            Wait you mean you don’t believe I’m a bear. Garrumph!

      Dammit!! I just posted this!

  • NDNOvHell

    I was living in Lake Tahoe when I first heard The Foreshadowing. That’s what I think of when I listen to this album. Fall/Winter up there is incredible.

  • KJM

    Is there a band called The Autumn People? If not, there should be.

    • NDNOvHell

      Dibs on that name

      • KJM

        Believe me, if I were even a shitty musician, I would’ve done it long ago.

        • NDNOvHell

          I was just joking, but that’s a good name

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        This band is destined to be world’s worst bleak electronicore band. Or world’s first innovative norsecore band

        • NDNOvHell

          Indeed! We better get on that asap.

    • Tyree

      I love me some Patti Smith.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I saw her open for Neil Young last year in Bridgeport. She wasn’t bad but I could not understand most of what she was saying.

      • KJM

        Bob Dylan Syndrome

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I’ve seen Bob Dylan before. I understood one word from that entire show and that word was windows.

      • KJM

        I’ve not seen Patti Smith, but I’ve seen Neil Young twice(Crazy Horse, CSN&Y).

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          My dad is a gigantic Neil Young fan. He brought me to see Neil 4 times. He raised me on his music and the music of the Grateful Dead with some Warren Zevon thrown in as well.

          • KJM

            Seen Dead w/Jerry 3 times, Jerry Garcia Band twice, The Other Ones once, and “The Dead” once. I was also lucky enough to see Warren once as well.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            My dad has seen the Grateful Dead more times than he can count. He would go to any shows they did in the northeast from 1985 onward. He saw Warren twice and I am not sure about how many times he saw Kerry Garcia’s solo band.

          • KJM

            My friend who’s about 14 years older than me(i.e. 62) has been going to Dead and related shows since they started.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Burzum’s prison time ambient album#2 hljidskalf is a perfectly good autumn album

    • Death

      ….

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        I don’t believe you. I refuse to listen to this sheit

        • Death

          …..

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            NEVER. I shall continue my blasphemous preaching till doomsday!

          • Death

            Then I shall deny you!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            NOOOOOOO!! You can’t do that. How will I know wether I exist or not?? I need you!

          • Death

            PÄIVI RÄSÄNEN HAS SPOKEN!

            *convulsing of nausea*

          • Death

            Her word is the motherfucking law!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Hopefully never will it come to that

          • Death

            Do you not want to share her fundamentalist christian values?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Of course I do, I dislike her tax policy!

          • Death

            you got to give your money to the bourgeoisie

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’ll donate it all to the Foundation for Keeping the Patriarchate real!

          • Death

            Good job my fellow oppresser!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Is this stuff from your imaginary land? I have no clue what any of this oppressing and pictures with weird languages mean.

      • PrincePoopyPanties

        Something about pasta?

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple
      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        Is this a new master/mix?

        • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

          Not sure, I know it’s been re-released a couple times.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Sounds not misty/foggy/foresty enough to my ear.

  • KJM
  • Death

    I also love to listen to early Swans when it’s autumn or winter.

  • JWG

    And I’d consider this soundtrack very Autumnal even without the precise context:

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      That movie totally gives me the wim wams.

  • The Satan Ov Hell
    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      My fave of theirs is The Codex Necro. Just so damn intense. When Humanity is Cancer is heavy as fvck.

  • The Satan Ov Hell

    I didn’t notice the fall part. AN is my general pick. Favourite album for fall is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SducQbGm_dU

    • That fucking album rules. I own three of the double LPs (one sealed) and the CD 🙂

      • The Satan Ov Hell

        I want one of the pain and piss picture discs of it, so bad.

        • I don’t have that one. I have one 2xGreen and one 2xBlack. Plus whatever’s in the unopened one (they never say on the shrink.)

          • The Satan Ov Hell

            Beautiful album, listening to it is a journey every time.

          • It’s one of those very few long-assed albums that doesn’t wear out it’s welcome before nearing its ending.

  • NefariousDude

    LOVE THIS BAND 2 DETH always puts me in the fall spirit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeOWGH4YtEQ

    • PrincePoopyPanties

      Nice! Sounds a bit like Pretentious Moi, or old school Clan Of Xymox (Medusa era).

  • I just discovered this a couple of days ago making it my current fav fall release. No idea if it came out in the fall, has anything to do with fall and there’s a flower on the cover. But that flower should be dead or preparing to die, the music says so.

  • crazytaco_12

    Yeah, even though it’s been said, Type O destroys the fucking competition for fall music. Also been listening to some The Vision Bleak, some early End of Green stuff, Satyricon, Ghost Bath, and others. Also gotta point out that fall music is totally different to me from Halloween music though. Listen to some Blood Farmers if you want Halloween. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U73MZJKaXBM

  • Cory John William Kamermans

    King Diamond – “Them” and Misfits – Earth A.D./Wolfsblood are my go to Fall Albums.

  • Max

    Nah, you can’t really do seasonal listening where I’m from. The weather’s too mild for most of the year. Even our winters are just a bit of rain, with the occasional night cold enough that you could leave your milk out on the curb and it wouldn’t be stale by morning.

    So if you’re the sort of person who associates metal with darkness, ice, etc. you’ve gotta use your imagination. I actually first got into black metal in the middle of summertime. Our summers are 4-month long punishing heatwaves, usually. Not even a die-hard Van Halen fan like myself wants to listen to ’em for that long.

    • Lacertilian

      Spring listening for us.
      What say you?

      • Max

        I suppose so. But I’ve always thought there isn’t even really a “Spring” down here, either. There’s winter and summer, and between them is a succession of mini-summers and mini-winters where spring should be. And autumn is just a final part of summer where the leaves get crunchy.

        • Lacertilian

          Pretty much, I’m in Sydney so it’s; Summer = hot & humid, Spring = hot, Winter = Autumn and Autumn = hot & dry.

    • KJM

      If you like Fall, the Northeastern US is perfect.

      • Max

        So I have heard. I know a guy who lived in Wiscasset, Maine for a while. A terrible rural backwater according to him, but apparently the autumn was quite something.

        • KJM

          Many parts of Maine are a mix of rural poverty and natural beauty.

  • Quarter Ounce Harrell

    it just sounds like fall with everything around you dieing and what not.

  • PrincePoopyPanties

    Anything by Agalloch or She Past Away fits the mood for fall.

    My favorite fall albums are the first six albums from Black Sabbath. The songs are perfect to listen to while watching the leaves fall and even better for listening to on a rainy November day where all you want to do is lay in your bed and question everything you thought you knew. Here’s Youtube links to the albums if you don’t already own them.

    Fall? Time to break out the PIL

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEToKGfjlmM

  • OMFG THIS IS MY THREAD! I LOVE DRUDKH IN THE FALL, THEY ARE JUST THE PERFECT FALL BAND TO WATCH THE LEAVES CHANGE AND DRINK PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWqhN5I_5wM

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I listen to the first six Black Sabbath albums in the fall. They go very well with pumpkin spice lattes of which I love. Starbucks and this one place in the mall near me called Gloria Jean’s Coffee make such good pumpkin spice lattes.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    Alcest’s “Les Voyages de L’Âme” is probably the perfect Autumn album for me. Agalloch is good, but even better in the winter. Falls of Rauros works well. Kingdom of Autumn is something I will occasionally turn to. Mourning Wolf’s “Elmhaven” EP is another good Fall/Winter choice of mine.

  • Sponge Of Mystery

    Any of burzum’s first 4 albums, basically black metal in general…OH and rob zombie and marilyn manson lul

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Black metal is more of a thing I like in the winter. Mayhem just goes so well with the cold weather and the massive amounts of snow New York gets.

      • Sponge Of Mystery

        I agree, but for some reason there’s something about the gloominess and creepiness of a fall night that works so well with Watain or Burzum or Darkthrone etc…

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I loved The Wild Hunt yet I have not listened to it in a while. I shall listen to it now.

          • Sponge Of Mystery

            its such an awesome album, defs in my top 5 black metal albums

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    I’m so happy. One of my favorite bands is coming to the venue near me in April four days after my birthday. I love their work and they are so underrated. Here’s my favorite song of theirs that is perfect to listen to and watch leaves fall. It just goes so well with the fall.

  • Guppusmaximus

    Opeth “Blackwater Park” is still my favorite Fall album especially “Dirge for November”.
    I don’t care what all of you trendy motherfuckers say, Opeth’s latest work is not as progressive as this masterpiece… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB63LLuVMVQ

  • FeelTheDarkness
  • The Black Dahlia Burger
