Trevor Strnad’s Deadspeak: The List

Trevor Strnad's Deadspeak
The thing I love about Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad’s “Deadspeak” column is sometimes, it’s a blog…other times, the lyrics to songs. When I told Trevor he could do anything in his column, I meant it. If he wanted to take a picture of his shit and send that in, that was a column. This week, he brings us a list…just a list, with very little explanation but a list that must’ve taken some time to prepare. Trevor’s explanation follows, but I must say…it’s a solid list of records. Basically, you should probably own most of these records …not because I think you should but because Trevor knows his shit. So without further stalling, here is Trevor’s latest installment of “Deadspeak.”

Here are thirty metal CDs that kicked my ass in 2010. There are still plenty of albums I’m catching up on…but there were a lot of great releases this year, in my humble opinion.

1. Defeated Sanity – Chapters Of Repugnance
2. Autopsy – The Tomb Within
3. Ascension – Consolamentum
4. Deathspell Omega – Paracletus
5. Black Breath – Heavy Breathing
6. Kerasphorus – Cloven Hooves At The Holocaust Dawn

12. Agalloch – Marrow Of The Spirit
13. Arkaik – Reflections Within Dissonance
14. Peshmerga – Murderous Acts Of Cruelty

  1. dude, where’s Fragments of Form and Function, by Allegaeon? all other albums are deserving as well, but Allegaeon needs to be on there cause they are one of the best new bands out right now. You guys in Black Dahlia should tour with them, since you are on the same label, and because that would be a perfect pairing for a tour.

    1. Ah! Christ! I did really like that Murder Construct disc. Would’ve made the top 15, no doubt if it hadn’t slipped my mind. I forgot to mention Endless Disease as well. Fucking loved that latest demo. Trap Them Filth Rations should’ve been on there too… so killer.

  2. I stumbled across “Son of Aurelius – The Farthest Reaches” this year and is really an awesome record. If you haven’t heard it, check it out, I highly recommend it.

  3. Fuck yes the Arkaik cd is the shit. But another good one for the year is Engage the Mechanicality by Diskreet. Rorschach from the Watchmen even laid down vocals on that bitch.

  4. dude, where’s Fragments of Form and Function, by Allegaeon? It definitely deserves to be near the top of this list. You should check them out if you haven’t heard them.

  5. What about Within The Ruins? They’re also so great!
    I agree with the list, 2010 was a great year with great releases! Fleshgod Apocalypse, Autopsy and Pathology really kicked my ass!

  6. 1 Kylesa – Spiral Shadow
    2 Darkthrone – Circle the Wagons
    3 Burzum – Belus
    4 Twilight – Monument to time end
    5 Enslaved – Axioma Ethica Odini
    6 Sleeping Peonies – Rose curl, Sea Swirl
    7 Kvelertak – Kvelertak
    8 War from a harlots Mouth
    9 Amy MacDonald – A Curious Thing
    10 Dillinger – Option Paralysis

  7. may not make the list but worth a look, 100 Knives Inside, Moral Fabrication EP. I’m stoked you put Fleshgod Apocalypse up there though.

  8. Had a 2nd look at your list, You have a fucking ridicoulsly good taste in music man.

    10/10 on the list

  9. I see three records missing, DeiVos – Gospel of Maggots, Archspire – All Shall Align and Inherit Disease – Visceral Transcendence, other than that, perfect list.
