CHRISTOPHER / VVIEZ PHOTOGRAPHY'S TOP ALBUMS 2018

Hey guys, work and life have been pretty nuts, but I wanted to be sure to contribute to all of the year end list fun. Without further delay:

1. DAUGHTERS - "YOU WON'T GET WHAT YOU WANT"

2. UADA - "CULT OF A DYING SUN"


3. PREOCCUPATIONS - "NEW MATERIAL"

4. UNIFORM + THE BODY - "MENTAL WOUNDS NOT HEALING," plus I will cheat here and include their individual full lengths in this slot.





5. BAMBARA - "SHADOW ON EVERYTHING"

6. CULT LEADER - "A PATIENT MAN"

7. OF FEATHER AND BONE - "BESTIAL HYMNS OF PERVERSION"

8. JAYE JAYLE - "NO TRAIL AND OTHER UNHOLY PATHS"

9. A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS - "PINNED"

10. INFERNAL COIL - "WITHIN A WORLD FORGOTTEN"

Honorable mentions (aka I also listened to a ton of the releases from these bands as well): 
NOTHING, MAMMOTH GRINDER, LACE, JUDAS PRIEST, OUR PLACE OF WORSHIP IS SILENCE, STREET SECTS, TOMB MOLD, HOT SNAKES, SUMAC, OH SEES, BIRDS IN ROW, KEN MODE, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT, HORRENDOUS, YOB, CITY HUNTER, CONVULSING, THOU, and honestly many more.

It has honestly been a great year for music. I am definitely looking forward to 2019, hopefully more great tunes and more shows to go to. I'll likely be posting a year end wrap up  of some of my favorite live photos I captured, playing a little catch up. 

I cannot end this post without mentioning the Caleb Scofield Tribute Show that Cave In released from their Roadburn performance earlier this year. I didn't include it in my top ten because I just wanted to make it a special separate inclusion. No musician's death has hit me the way Caleb's did. I am still crushed by the fact that he is gone and we will no longer be graced with his music. I was fortunate enough to go to the benefit show in Boston earlier this year, and I can say without a doubt that it was one of the best shows I have ever been to. If you are a Cave In fan then put on some headphones and listen to this performance. RIP CALEB SCOFIELD.
