"This is one of the masterpieces in the modern history of metal, way ahead of our time."

Source: https://reviewstomyblood.blogspot.de/2017/01/100-discos-favoritos-las-notas-finales.html

Después de tanto rollo con los 100 trabajos favoritos, aquí las notas finales del top10. Del 20 al 11 las sorpresas que hubo junto a los lanzamientos esenciales que de no haberlos escuchado algo hiciste mal. Luego de 10 a 1 hay lugar para lo que a nuestro criterio son excelencia dentro de lo experimental y lo original, discos que proponen y consiguen grandeza única en su tipo; los sonidos que más defiende RTMB y que mejor reflejan el gusto por la música que buscamos promover.

Con esto concluimos y tambien declaramos larga vida a RTMB como página de promoción en nuestro idioma a la música extrema de calidad.

1: COMA CLUSTER VOID - MIND CEMETERIES

De las obras maestras en la historia moderna del metal adelantandose a nuestros días.

Finalmente la posición número uno con el disco más desafiante que vio el 2016. Aquí se moldea una nueva forma y se proclama la antítesis al Death Metal que por ahora es indigerible y complicado de entender, incluso para el oído más entrenado en los caudales de lo brutal y lo extremo; lo entiendes o lo odias. Hecho principalmente por dos sujetos cuya carrera de músicos no tiene nada que ver con la escena, pero su visión de la misma es bastante interesante.
Esta es de las obras maestras en la historia moderna del metal adelantandose a nuestros días. Un quiebre de paradigmas que de alguna u otra manera definían los limites conocidos por nuestra generación. Su gran complejidad procesada bajo composición sobresaliente, la manipulación y deformación a voluntad del tempo en la partitura y una propuesta de crudeza en los sonidos como nunca se han dado nos otorgan el placer de contemplar una autentica obra de arte. Siguiendo un modelo de concepción artística hacia lo oscuro, donde lo grotesco y lo sórdido sirven de carruaje sonoro que nos sitúa en un paraje inhóspito. Todo vertido en un recipiente de siniestralidad absoluta para que al final sea un brebaje que te sirves una noche de picnic con la psique. Un profundo análisis a la disritmia florecida entre caos que nos demuestra lo mucho que desconocemos ese mundo discrepante.
Un trabajo al que, conforme adentras al contenido te lleva a estados más allá de tus oídos, para la reflexión, el cuestionamiento, la confusión y un sentido de disociación severo donde ningún detalle pasa desapercibido. Volviéndose complicado de escuchar y fácil de admirar.
Sciolist.

Mathcore Index's Best of 2016
 
Christian:
 
I hate ranking things I love (especially when it comes to music), and because this year was so exceptionally challenging, I decided to organize my lists based upon pure volume of listens. I also took the time to make a list for unsigned/underground acts, another for signed/major acts (bands that are well known within our scene), and finally 2 smaller lists for EPs and honorable mentions, respectively. Lastly, most of these bands appear on our compilations, so hopefully that doesn't come as a surprise. Allons-i.

 
 
Signed/major acts:
 
10) Every Time I Die - "Low Teens"

9) Nails - "You Will Never Be One of Us"
 
8) Plebeian Grandstand - "False Highs, True Lows"
 
7) Wormrot - "Voices"

6) Coma Cluster Void - "Mind Cemeteries"

One of the most underrated and interesting bands in modern death metal.



5) Vermin Womb - "Decline"

4) American Football - "American Football LP2"

3) Ion Dissonance - "To Cast the First Stone"

2) The Dillinger Escape Plan - "Dissociation"

1) Car Bomb - "Meta"

For my personal list, I’ll write about the albums that struck me and that still evoke something when I hear them, or even when I only see their cover art. It’s a very subjective and eclectic list, and shouldn’t be taken as an objective best-of. Instead, I’ll tell you a bit more about what albums I still like, and try to explain why. This list isn’t ranked either; it’s only ordered in alphabetical order of the bands. Let’s move on!

Black Peaks - Statues
The Black Queen - Fever Daydream
Car Bomb - Meta 

Coma Cluster Void have been teasing us for quite some time before their album, Mind Cemeteries, finally dropped. First, it was with pictures of the ten-string guitar, then with names like Mike DiSalvo, and then with musical teasers. It would have been quite easy to miss the mark, in front of such high and intense expectations, but the band more than delivered on their promises, and surpassed what most thought to be unfeasible. The album sets a new bar for rhythmic and harmonic complexity in metal, and it does it so effortlessly, it seems, that I can’t envision anyone challenging their place on the throne anytime soon.

Corima - 天照 (Amaterasu)
Dance Gavin Dance - Mothership
dMu - Synaptic Self
Esperanza Spalding - Emily’s D+Evolution
Fire! - She Sleeps, She sleeps
He Was Eaten by Owls - Chorus 30 from Blues for the Hitchhiking Dead
IkarusChronosome
Little Tybee - Little Tybee
Mammoth - Deviations
The Mercury Tree - Permutations
öOoOoOoOoOoSamen
Öz ürügülüFashion & Welfare
Rorcal - Κρέων (Creon)
Schammasch - Triangle
Shamblemaths - Shamblemaths

That’s it! It’s done. Here’s my personal list of best albums of the year. I tried hard to keep it relatively brief, but there are plenty more albums that were release and that deserve your complete attention. You can start by this list, and then move on to the fifty monthly recommendations we made through the year, and keep your eyes opened because other writers of CTEBCM will be posting their own personal lists as well!

On that note, cheers!
