47.) Blut Aus Nord – 777 Sects
48.) Blut Aus Nord - 777 The Desanctification
These are basically the same album. Desanctification is a direct sequel to Sects, and they play right into each other. A third and final volume will come out in 2012. So together, they take up spots on the list right next to each other. Blut Aus Nord is a French progressive metal outfit. In 2011 they have taken to numerology. The number 7 is found all over the place on this album, especially in time signatures. The music here is very hard to get your head around. It is so surprising that it jars you and leaves you sorta’ brain-paralyzed as it continues to pummel you. The sound is CRUSHING. Walls of drums and guitars bear down on you like you’re in the trash compactor from Star Wars. This album is incredibly nuanced, despite each song blending into the next and despite there being no real standout moments. If this were a best albums list then these two albums would place better. But this is my favorites list, and fact is that I don’t enjoy listening to these albums all that much. They are bewildering and impressive, but hard to love.
