Vhorthax - Nether Darkness - Music Review + Full MLP stream.

Vhorthax - Nether Darkness. 

Review by Trevor Proctor.

As witnessed by us all 2017 was an exceptional year for underground music but with the post-Christmas blues and fog of our festive hangovers barely lifted it’s now time to look forward to 2018 in the hope it can bring us the same high standard of music as last year.

Trevor Proctor's Top 25 Albums of 2017.

Love them or loathe them end of year listings are a regular feature at this time of year and if nothing else they make for interesting reading. As with 2016 this year has been exceptional in terms of releases as we've been treated to some phenomenal albums during a very productive year.

Jude Felton's Top 20 Albums of 2017

I'll be the first to admit that I've been super quiet on here this year. That being said, I've still listened to a ton of new music over the past 12 months. And, we all like a year end list, don't we? Of course we do. It gives us a chance to agree, disagree or just hurl abuse at each other via the interweb.

Trevor Proctor's Top 25 singles, EPs and demos of 2017.

As with previous years the releases we were treated to during 2017 made for some very difficult decisions in order to keep this list to 25. During the year we were bombarded with quality releases from all corners of the globe as our underground continues to thrive and grow. As stated in the introduction to my singles, EPs and demos listing for 2016 I've included the unbeatable 'Extermination Mass' by Death Worship in my list for 2017 as despite having a limited release at the Nuclear War Now! V 'fest in November 2016 it was February 2017 when it received it's full world-wide release via Nuclear War Now! Productions. The same principle applies to the inclusion of the fantastic MLP from Vomit Angel, 'Sadomatic Evil,' as it received a very limited cassette release at the end of 2016 but it was March 2017 before it received a full, higher profile release on digital, CD & vinyl MLP formats by Iron Bonehead Productions. 'Act of Invocation' by Disembowel is also included as it had previously received a very limited independent release in Chile before receiving a full worldwide release from Iron Bonehead Productions in 2017.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank every band, label and promoter that has supported The Lair of Filth this year - it's the support, ties, friendships and alliances that I have  made with you all that helps make this worthwhile. 
Finally, I'd like to thank you, the reader for your continued support - every single view and post share mean the world to me so thank you.....hopefully you'll see something below that you may have missed during the year.
