Isn't it, though? And just in time for the winter solstice, too.

Ahpdegma - Seolfkwyllen is probably up there for me; however, I don't find the Antaeus disappointing at all. In fact, I think it's almost as good as CYFAWS, just scummy, short and destructive, and nearly perfect in those wonderful ways.

As for a few others I don't think have been mentioned yet: the Forgotten Spell dlp is pretty fucking weird and good. The Mons Veneris/Vetala split is caustic and also weird and good. I really dug the Hatespirit album on Altare, as well as the Woddrea Mylenstede - Hreómóde Blódgéotend lp they released. The Voltaic Omen tape I'm forgetting the name of also was great.

I'm still digesting the DsO.

Really glad this place is back!

The new Wędrujący Wiatr ‎was my favorite by far. The new Baise Ma Hache and Hunok records were also incredible.
