Cremation is Irreversible Without a doubt Ash Pool takes the prize for best album title of 2012, and the music is equally superb, this is caustic black metal, gone are all the things I disliked about 2010's For Which He Plies The Lash, this is a much more a throw-back to 2007's World Turns on Its Hinge, and it's great. This EP has been a mainstay in my playlist this year and I expect to be spinning it many a times in the future

10: Ash Pool - For Which He Plies The Lash

For Which He Plies The Lash This is Ash Pool's second album and little has changed since 2007's "World Turns on its Hinge". The good? Sound is a bit more polished while staying noisy and primitive. The bad? Vocals now frequently foray into some sort of semi-clean territory where this band doesn't really belong. One could make the claim though that the cleanish vocals add to the noise thus making this an even more disgusting album. In the end this is a solid piece of minimalistic, noisy black metal, though definitely not for everyone.
