With the AOTD-poll results being released, I find myself scrolling through the main list for only a few seconds, after which I immediately dive straight into the Rando Corner. What an interesting and beautiful place it is, right? Full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered, yet also full of not-so-hidden gems that oddly enough didn't make the main list. Point is, there likely is something in there for everybody (just as there is in the main list), yet it is obfuscated behind the wall of obscurity, where not many dare (or rather want) to go. It is for this reason that I take matters into my own hands by pushing all of you deep down into the Rando Corner. You shall not escape without having heard some trve kvlt music.

Basically I intend for this to be a separate now-playing thread dedicated to albums in the Rando Corner. Discussion of the albums is welcomed, which is another thing that kind of separates this concept from the official NP thread. I will copy/paste the rando-list, and I will be updating this post by adding as many Bandcamp/YouTube/whatever links as I can for your ease.

Have fun!

Nice thread! Well, I am actually not too surprised that my #1 and #2 albums ended up in Rando. I mean I am sure “Drought” would do better if it wasn’t an EP considering how well DSO did overall. But most shocking that Furia “Nocel” only got a single vote which personally I think is their strongest.

I've added the first batch of links and I already realize that I won't be able to do this on my own. So if anyone wants to help, just copy a part of the list (preferably a block; 1st place, 2nd place, etc.), add the links and pm me the final result. Make sure to announce which block you're going to work on in this thread to avoid multiple people doing the same block.

I think it'd be fair to give Bandcamp links priority, and if the album is not on bandcamp then you resort to youtube. If it's not on youtube then idk really. NO DOWNLOAD LINKS, only streaming links. Thanks
(If you really can't find the album anywhere then just leave it blank)

Inspired by this thread, I decided to embark on a journey to try and listen to at least a couple of songs from every album that i have no memory of ever having listened before.

Right now, Domgård - Ödelagt really stood out from the few ones I managed to go through already. Thumbs up to whoever voted for this. Listening to Svartdjupets Lockelse as I write this.

Man 8 out of 10 of mine ended up in Rando corner, so I guess this is the thread for me! 5 and 6 were completely expected, but I'm really surprised there wasn't a single vote for Stoned Jesus, Cough, K2B and Khorada.

1. Opium Warlords - Taste My Sword of Understanding (2014)
2. Karma to Burn - Appalachian Incantation (2010)

4. Cough - Ritual Abuse (2010)
5. Neurosis - Live at Roadburn 2007 (2010)
6. Alaskan - The Weak and the Wounded EP (2010)
7. Stoned Jesus - Seven Thunders Roar (2012)
8. Khôrada - Salt (2018)

10. Thy Worshiper - Klechdy (2016)

There were three from my list:

8. Birth AD - I Blame You
It's like Slayer's "Hell Awaits" but instead of the Christian fear of eternal damnation, it's being angry at rush hour traffic.

9. Vargrav - Reign in Supreme Darkness
Do you like Emperor? Because oh boy, these guys do.

10. Mysticum - Planet Satan
Do you like drum machines? Good, this one hates you, too.

I'll do some digging in the coming days, but did want to take a second to highlight some of the posts in this thread that I didn't list, since the Rando corner is far too big to be useful on its own.

I think we discussed this in the thread during June, but it's a shame that Triosphere is not getting more recognition. I honestly cannot recommend The Heart of the Matter enough to anyone who likes power or progressive metal. I admit that I didn't vote for it, but it wouldn't be far off from my list. It's got a lot more bite than most power metal, and the singer, Ida, is very different from the more angelic voices that dominate power metal.

I will also second Birth AD. Zodi's description isn't wrong, but I would add that it's a super memorable crossover record. It's one of the few albums with as many songs as it has (18) where nearly every track is memorable.

Good idea for a thread, I'll be coming back to this and the result thread for quite a long time now hahaha.

I voted for Veil of Maya's [id] (1st place), Within The Ruins Elite (2nd place), and Marduk Iron Dawn (3rd place).

If you're into metalcore, obviously I highly recommend Veil of Maya and Within The Ruins. Both the guitarists are amazing songwriters and were at the pinnacle of their songwriting abilities with those two albums. With the Marduk EP, I feel that is the best war-themed album they ever released, which is an atmopshere they tried to encapsulate over and over again. That EP just rocks my fuckin' socks, absolutely incredible.

5 randos for me. A couple not surprising, but still baffled that Mylingar doesn't get more love. Plus their stuff is name your price on bandcamp.

6/10 of mine are in here. How many kvlt points is that? Nevermore, Solution .45, Kingfisher Sky, Daylight Dies, Jeff Loomis, and Raving Season. I'm kind of surprised there don't seem to be many Daylight Dies fans here especially, they seem like they should be a little more simpatico to at least a slice of our user's tastes. I understand better why the others are more idiosyncratic to my own palate.

These lists are definitely humbling in making me realize how relatively little metal I've heard in the past decade. So much stuff I couldn't even tell you what the genre was other than a wild guess based on the name.

I also wonder how many others only had one album in the top 100 like me (Dead End Kings at #81). I would imagine for me that's at least partially a function of being fairly new here, so I haven't had exposure to hype for many of the albums.

My three contributions to Rando Corner:

Thy Catafalque - Geometria (Avant-Garde/Prog/Black for fans of Solefald and Ihsahn)

Walpyrgus - Walpyrgus Nights (Thin Lizzy mixed with Twisted Tower Dire)

Stereo Nasty - Twisting The Blade (Classic heavy that gets a little thrashy at times)

They just never did it for me... all decent elements but the songs never captivated me. Maybe someday. I think Divine Ascension and later After Forever do it way better.

My biggest entry to the rando corner was Land of the Evening Star by Dark Forest. For the nerds who like black metal (and what, that's like... all of you?), you need to hear this.

What... can't find it? Can't be arse'd to look for it? Well look no further my friend, click the link below! Listen to the final track Bjarne Herjulfsson ca. 985CE to tell if you'd dig this or not. I believe most of those who give it a chance absolutely will!

https://darkforest.bandcamp.com/album/land-of-the-evening-star

It may be an album from the ancient year of 2012, but that doesn't make it any less worth your time.

Also... I put Hammers of Misfortune's Dead Revolution in the rando corner? Y'all should be ashamed.

I have Aurora Borealis and quite enjoyed that release... never picked this one up though I am sure it won’t disappoint.

I contributed two randos. My number 6, The Great Old Ones aren't that obscure. They're a postblack band from the same scene as Deathspell Omega and Blut Aus Nord that write HP Lovecraft concept albums exclusively.

My number one on the other hand is a group in dire need of exposure. Cadaveric Fumes.

https://cadavericfumes.bandcamp.com/album/dimensions-obscure

These guys just have an EP and a couple demos, but if they keep this up then for a full length then I think these guys could really go somewhere. Imagine if some crazy french guys threw death metal, surf rock, and Candlemass into a blender and sprinkled a shlocky psychedelic sci fi horror aesthetic on top of it. Shits wild.

had a couple randos too


6. Kawir - Πάτερ 'Ηλιε Μήτερ Σελάνα (2016) (rando)
9. Argus - Beyond the Martyrs (2013) (rando)
10. Traveler - Traveler (2019) (rando)

Kawir embody the revitalisation of the Hellenic bm scene by releasing their best ever material
Argus are just a killer heavy/doom band releasing 2 AOTD level albums this one being the better of the 2
Traveler just great no nonsense trad metal.

I was surprised by this. If I had to make a list of my top 50 songs of the decade, Flying Alone would be in there.

Loved this one. It JUST missed my list. I bet if I had a little longer to enjoy it, it would have made it.

I managed to get Conan's Monnos in the rando corner. I guess that goes to show that their brand of barbaric ultra-heavy doom didn't quite blow everyone's heads off in the way it did mine this decade. I went through a period caused by some personal ruckus where all I wanted to hear was the most neanderthal, brutal music and being more of a doom fan than a death/grindcore one their sound as a whole, and particularly on their debut EP Horseback Battle Hammer and debut album Monnos just absolutely scratched that itch.

Eventually melody found its way back into my listening habits but Conan will always have a very special place in my heart and I find their sound is just perfect for a certain mood.

Kinda surprised that no one else voted for that Mortuary Drape album, definitely the comeback of the decade for me, especially considering where they had left off with the mediocre "Buried in Time".

I only had one contribution to the Rando Corner this year, but if you've been on this forum for any amount of time you've heard me talk about Gotsu Totsu Kotsu before. I always refer to them as "hypermaximalist death metal" but that probably conjures images of insane blasty sweepy tech death, and that's really not at all what they do. Their approach to death metal is deceptively basic, since it's a three piece band consisting of the usual vocals/guitars/bass/drums, but anybody familiar with Japan knows that metal bands from there tend to throw the very concept of restraint straight the fuck out the window and GTK is no exception. Every song has four hundred riffs, ever since they got Keiichi on guitar the solos have sounded like somebody with twelve fingers, the vocalist sounds like a fucking volcano god, etc. The closest thing they have to a gimmick is the mere fact that Haruhisa is a slap bassist, but it's incorporated so seamlessly that it sounds like the most natural thing in the world. Even when they aren't aiming for full speed ahead they sound absolutely gargantuan. To quote my own review, which is gauche but it's really the best way to describe it, "It's like getting slapped with a bundle of stop signs". It's just so fucking hefty. GTK is a beef castle. All four albums they released this year were fantastic and two of them wound up in my top ten, but this was the singular rando (because they do have a handful of fans scattered on the forum despite me acting like I'm the only one at times, lol).

One track if you want to sample
Full album if you want the whole plate

I didn't vote for them myself, but again, if you've been around here for longer than a week you know exactly which rando I'm about to highlight next. Of course I'm not going to pass up a chance to pimp out Gargoyle, who the fuck do you think I am? The 2010s weren't their best decade, but Geshiki was an absolute stunner and at least one intelligent person voted for it. They're primarily a thrash band first and foremost, but they touch on everything from exactly that to a more power metal bent* to rousing singalong anthems to long proggy instrumentals and everything in between. I've been screaming about how much Gargoyle rules for nearly a decade now and that's not going to stop.

* - I chose the music video clip (which cuts off before the solo) instead of the full song entirely because they're all old men at this point and Katsuji looks like he's about to explode during the double bass section and that makes me laugh.

Most of my randos I can see why they were randos but one of them was Plaga - Magia gwiezdnej entropii. Found that a bit surprising considering the praise they seem to get here as soon as the polish BM scene is discussed.

Trail of Murder seemed to be surprisingly the only one on the rando corner for me. I just played it again yesterday - still ultra-sharp, entertaining trad metal and one of Urban breed's best performances ever. It's a more polished Tad Morose without some of the idiosyncrasy, but it's so damn satisfying.

10. Alda - Tahoma

Urban breed's run in Trail of Murder is so frustrating for me. It's so close to being exactly what I want, so close to being amazing and phenomenal, but something that I can't put my finger on is holding it back for me. It's so goddamn frustrating.

Four of mine made the randos:

2. ReVamp-Wild Card
7. Panopticon-Autumn Eternal
8. God Seed-I Begin
9. Dark Fortress-Venereal Dawn

Surprised at these, these are fairly high profile bands.

It's a sort of plain, unadorned sound. Doesn't have many guitar-hero solos so much as a lot of head-down, badass chugging riffs, and they don't do anything too weird. For me it just hits right and I dig the writing.

I don't think that's it, as there are a lot of no-nonsense no-showoff bands and albums I like. Like I said, it's something harder to pin down. Maybe it's...chord choice? Key signature? Slightly lesser-used tempo? Tuning? I really don't know.

Mine:

4. Khemmis - Absolution (2015)
I mainly voted for this one over the more popular sophomore album Hunted because it was my intro to this band, and also because it contains The Bereaved, which is my favourite Khemmis song.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rxsbxw_ymA - The Bereaved
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP7CS3Pi-ZI - Ash, Cinder, Smoke

5. Flotsam and Jetsam - The Cold (2010)
I fully expected this to make it here. Flotsam has always been known as a very inconsistent band and not much gets loved outside of their first two albums, but this is a very well done, melancholy, groovy thrash album with excellent leads and an on point vocal performance from Eric A.K.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6XriiyUM6w - Take
https://youtu.be/RG1G7br9YhY - Black Cloud
https://youtu.be/gtLXKJV-nW4 - Falling Short

Avatarium - Hurricanes & Halos
Children of Bodom - Halo of Blood
Crystal Viper - Legends
Fear Factory - Genexus
Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls

That Iron Maiden selection is superficially mystifying. Surely out of almost 200 voters you'd think at least one other person would have had it somewhere on their list, but then again, the big four had a similar problem, because we definitely have an elitist streak, whether we admit to it or not. And if you told a casual metal fan (especially someone who didn't follow metal in the past decade) your favorite bands were Mgla, Atlantean Codex, Visigoth, Power Trip, Blood Incantation, Triptykon, Satan's Host, Briton Rites, Hell, Crypt Sermon, Eternal Champion, and Cultes des Ghoules, you'd sound pretty underground, but here that's mainstream, dare I say, "generic" taste.

I really liked Metallica's latest album, but it wasn't anywhere close to being Top 10 of the decade--it barely squeaked into the Top 10 of its own year!

It had some pretty good songs and riffs. Definitely not up with the classics, but better than many gave it credit for.

I love the last two Maiden albums - playing Final Frontier now, in fact - but I wasn't going to put big legacy bands like them, Metallica or Rush because I figure there were more exciting choices from bands who deserved more of a shout out.

Eventually melody found its way back into my listening habits but Conan will always have a very special place in my heart and I find their sound is just perfect for a certain mood.

If anything the poll made me realize how little doom, sludge, and stoner metal is liked on this forum. The few doom albums that made the list are kinda head-scratchers for me.

Haha, oddly enough in the voting thread OP BH called out Chelsea Wolfe as ineligible, but Hiss Spun is pretty much a doom/sludge album, albeit mixed with other things as well. It definitely would have been on my list. 1/3 of my actual list is doom, though I'm generally not so much into sludge or stoner and lean towards the melodic and/or gothic facets of it. Looking at the list I see a decent amount of doom on there. Not as much as a doom fan would want, sure, but that's probably true for any subgenre fan other than black, death or traditional/power/heavy. Even the death metal fans don't think there's enough death metal. I guess if the black metal fans start complaining there's not enough of that either we'll know something is up.

I've actually been slacking in my doom metal duties these past few years. Maybe because the dreariness of the real world is sapping my desire to listen to it?

Not me, doom/stoner/sludge bands live cater towards my rage and despair in a way black/death/thrash absolutely can't during these times.

Wow, fully half of my picks were in the rando corner, even though all of them made huge impacts when they dropped and have been discussed in this board at length: False, Hail Spirit Noir, Blood Ceremony, and Tyr...

But the one that really floors me is Black Breath's debut. It is quite possibly the most headbangable album of all time, and in my opinion kickstarted the entire trend of HM-2 infused crusty death metal (okay maybe that's not a good thing, but there's no denying its influence). I listen to it at least once a month and it puts a grin on my face every single time. If you haven't heard it before, do yourself a favor and crank it immediately: https://blackbreathsl.bandcamp.com/albu ... -breathing

Two of my picks ended up in the rando corner. Chaos Echoes I can understand because they are the most underrated extreme metal band that ever was. They recently disbanded. Sinmara on the other hand, I'm surprised nobody else picked their debut album. It's great.

4 = Sinmara - Apothic Womb 2014
5 = Chaos Echoes - Transient 2015

I think the issue here is that doom, sludge and stoner have been very weak this past few years. I can name a ton of sludge that is great but most of it is from the previous decade. Drone is pretty much dead and the only doom stuff I enjoyed wasn't top 10 of the decade. I'm not even sure I can name a good stoner doom band of the past decade besides Huata.
