Drawing up a top six list of excellent demo releases from the past year was tough. A rundown from 1-6 seemed a little unfair as the bands hard work and dedication is unparalleled throughout all of these demos. So, here’s the top six demos I’ve personally heard this year that are cool are totally worth checking out in a completely fair and alphabetised order. Awesome.
Handily, anything that can be legit downloaded/purchased/streamed is linked. Fancy eh? Get to it after the jump.
Bass and drum driven doom. Bleak.
Blackened d-beat crust. UGH.
Pharmaceutically aided and terrifyingly real.
Absolutely crushing doom.
Brooklyn based black metal. Intense.
Mysteriously atmospheric black metal.
