The Top Tech in 2013

top2013The process by which TDM calculates annual lists involves numerous people, a points systems, and blind submissions. This takes a lot of time, wracks the nerves, and always results in extended discourse.

However, none of that happened this year, because everyone was busy with other stuff, so now you are stuck with only me, resulting in a best of 2013 list going to press in August. Of 2014. Sorry about that one.

“If it’s so late, why even bother?”

Let me share a short story that, along with some reader comments, rekindled my drive to complete this list. In recent weeks I saw a list that placed Deeds of Flesh in only the honorable mention. On a list of 40! I was livid. I raged. How could the writer miss that!?

In short, I hope this list inspires the same reaction. Or, gets some listeners to check out some new bands. Sorry if I left out your favorite, as I make no claim to having heard all the possible albums (even some of which are covered by other writers on this site, sorry guys)… and if I did, please let me know in the comments.

Serocs – a mexican knee shredder!

Yay, well done Mr. Serocs! This is one man project and it’s calling the techno brothers to arms! Kill the pigeons, start the warfare! This “ep” is very mature piece of music and beats the living shit out of the listener. It’s intensive, blasting, keen to murder and rape Your dog – mwahahaha. No, it’s not boring, even with the lack of vocals BUT – in my opinion there’s lot’s of space left for the extreme, guttural spasm. Sometimes too much, maybe. It just seems they were ripped from the track. Beside the obvious guitar mastery, I can say only good things about the drums. Intensification is monstrous and the patterns are very complex and “entertaining” at the same time. You should give him a spin, especially when this ep is free for listen and download on his bandcamp [profile] and below. Keep up the good work! Continue reading Serocs – a mexican knee shredder!
