hl2010: PETER LOFTUS
Top T3ree Releases of 2010
This incredible achievement is not only the best album of 2010, but the best new album of recent years. “Paracletus” joins the list of personal classics that come along once in a blue moon and change your whole view of music.
“Axioma Ethica Odini”
“We are the Cult of the Plains”
Best Concert/ Festival of 2010
Missing HiTS. *Sob*
Biggest Surprise To Me in 2010
Watain cancel their Dublin show because their bus broke down. Pisser!
Best Album Cover of 2010
“Heaven Is Gone”
This is a fantastic cover. I love the way it brings together elements of art noveau and tattoo art. I love the headstones in the background, the sombre colours and the inking. Beautiful!
Favourite Band of All Time
Sorry – can’t choose one! Deathspell Omega. Watain. Septic Death. Cryptic Slaughter. DRI. Accused. Voivod. Razor. Holy Terror. Heresy. Rush. Black Sabbath. Morbid Angel.
Biggest Hope for 2011
Deathspell Omega. Because judging by “Paracletus”, they have tapped into something formidable, but it doesn’t sound as if they have reached their peak yet.
