Too Soon? Anso DF’s Best of 2013… So Far


Anso Best of 2013 So Far

Dudes like us can lie to ourselves about our feelings, fortunes, and future, but our music is a dose of reality. I mean, sometimes u don’t know your own vibe until u review your current rotation of jamz: There are patterns and they do not lie. Discerning those patterns, u think to yourself, Damn it turns out that I am suppressing a destructive outburst, and fleeing reality for fanciful mysticism, and um staving off those two things with drugz. This is super-clear to u because, of your 2013 favorites (so far), eight are scum black metal from hell (and with some measure of death metalisms); three are gauzy occult rock; three are catchy, mournful stoner metal. (And one is um Voivod.) So basicallyyyyy: few displays of precision or virtuosity. Little production. Nearly zero positivity. No turning back.
