Second to last update of the year, I’ll probably review the whole year in January/February when I have considerably more time.
1,040, 34 a day on average which is decent given that I spent a good chunk of the month in the forest without a chance to listen to music.
1.Anti-Flag – 70 plays
2.Arctic monkeys – 43
4.In Flames – 28
5.Bullet for my Valentine – 27
Did I mention Anti-Flag released an album? I’m pretty sure I did. I also quite like it. I’ve gotten into Ensiferum recently and it’s scratching a certain itch for fantastical music which I guess I’ve had.
1.Buried in Verona – Like, 22 plays. Not sure how I stumbled upon this song but it’s been as addictive as any I’ve listened to this month. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s definitely worth a listen.
2. Bullet for my Valentine – tears don’t fall (acoustic), 18 plays. I guess I never found the acoustic version of this before. I love the original and this version works phenomenally as it amplifies the punch straight into the feels.
3. Ensiferum- Feast with Valkyries, 14 plays. Just looking at the cover of this album (which is gorgeous) should give you some sort of indication of how fantastical the songs on it are. Feast with Valkyries is no exception and I encourage you to give it a listen if that’s something you know you’ll like.
4. Anti-Flag- digital blackout, 13 plays. One of my favorites from their new album. The song is as political as you’d expect from Anti-Flag, it’s also pretty catchy after the intro.
5. Ensiferum – Victory song, 12 plays. Like I described it last time: an epic masterpiece. The 10+ minute song couldn’t be more appropriately named and I’m quite frankly disappointed that it’s not on the background of all viking related movies for at least 30 seconds. It also includes a Finnish part which is surprisingly emotional.
That concludes it for this time, a shorter update but I did manage to find time to write it.
