Oh, how I wanted to list the ten best albums but oh, how impossible it was. I guess that's the downside of owning a website which allows many genres. Last year, yes, last year it was easier because we were only active since September so we didn't have so many albums to review. But this year, hundreds, if not over a thousand album have been checked by me. Most of them were good.
Nadja, Dasha Rush, Velvet Six, Stoned Jesus, Dirk Serries, Ummagma, The Silverblack,.. The list goes on and on. Dozens of albums have been appearing and finally disappearing in this list. So I had to make a decision about who finally ended up here. With that in mind, 2015 was an amazing musical year.
I decided to make three top-10 lists. 'Breeze' features the gentle, soothing and slow albums, including ambient, jazz and post-rock. 'Wnd' issues heavier sounds, like doom, post-rock, drones and martial industrial. Finally, 'Storm' shows the extremes, 'metaaaaaaaaaal', so to speak. Again, these were so hard to make...
