Trying to pick out the very best death metal of the year so far was a bitch of a job. Of the many deathy albums we’ve been invited (and sometimes we’ve asked) to review, there are dozens I like. Eventually I decided the fairest approach would be to divide those albums into three groups – melodic and symphonic death; prog and technical death; and assorted death. That still left a pile of death to listen to.
Not that I minded, of course. Listening to and writing about music has become my consuming pastime since I sort of retired when I turned 65. Even so, I shall use one of the M-words to describe the nature of the task in hand. It was… no, not Majestic. Massive, yes. Monumental… yeah, that’s good because it fits so much of the music on my death row.

“Every time that you try to do something right
You seem to get it oh so wrong
It’s almost like a joke
But no one’s laughing now “
“More disappointing than a box of rats on Christmas
More worthless than a dumpster filled with pogs (POGS!)
More disgusting than the time I took a bath with lots of slugs
More revolting than a barrel full of ears”
Our favourite green man is back with a tune that is catchy as hell, lyrics that the whole family can sing along to and a live video where he’s showing off those gorgeous, irresistible goblin moves. Nekrogoblikon’s EP ‘ power’ was released yesterday and after hearing this song I immediately went to Bandcamp to buy it. The silly lyrics together with that goblin singing voice puts a big smile on my face and while listening there are moments when I feel like painting myself green and wear huge goblin ears so I can get a more authentic experience while rocking out to Nekrogoblikon’s infectious style of symphonic death metal. Goblins forever!
