Trevor Proctor's Top 25 Singles, EPs, Splits and Demos of 2019.


Thankfully the underground continues to thrive and in 2019 we have yet again been treated to some lethal singles, EPs, splits and demos. 
As with 2018 we've been spoilt for choice with some fantastic underground releases from new and established bands alike bringing us a never ending torrent of first class music. 

Whilst it may have become a bit of tradition for me to tie the top spot on my year end album lists, for the first time ever I've also tied the number one spot on this listing. The reason behind tying the top two releases is that I just can't separate either in terms of simply how good they are - Temple Nightside is one of the best underground bands to ever exist and Death Worship is easily one of the best from recent years. Placing all of these releases in some sort of order has been an absolute nightmare as every title below is exemplary, as are many others which unfortunately had to be excluded.

As with all Lair of Filth articles the text in red is a live link to bring you straight to the artist or label and if something spikes your interest clicking on the title of the release will bring you straight to where you can purchase it - hopefully you'll find something you may have missed during the year. I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank every band, label and promoter who has supported my work at The Lair of Filth in any way during the past year.

I hope you enjoy this list and please like the Lair of Filth Facebook page to keep up to date with future articles, including my album listing for 2019 which will be posted in the coming weeks. 
In addition to my album listing for 2019 please also watch out for guest year-end album listings, scheduled to feature PK from Iron Bonehead Productions, Sandesh from Cyclopean Eye Productions and Alan Ripley, one of the underground's most ardent supporters.   

As always the biggest thanks belong to you, the reader, as without your support there wouldn't be a Lair of Filth - every read, like and share means everything to me so thanks again, Trevor.
