Sorry to keep anyone waiting, but this is when I like to reflect on the past year: the final day of the year. I feel like I would be doing myself and you loyal MI Junkies a disservice to thrust a "best of" on you a month before the actual end of the year… OR … This shitbird gots lazy and put it off til now. I'll let you draw your own conclusions. Regardless, here is my, and what I can assume is the final, Best Of for the site… squeaking in at the 11th hour of 2010. I won't bore you with elaborate yarns about why these albums made me happy in my swimsuit area, because lets be honest, with these bands it would probably be shorter to listen to five of their songs than read about them. So, without further fanfare, I present my Top 10 Albums of 2010… In rapidfire tweet form… 140 characters or less… Just how attention spans for this shit like it. (more…)

Italian metal band, THE SECRET, have inked a deal with Southern Lord (Pelican, Saint Vitus). Label owner, Greg Anderson, posted the following statement on the label's official blog:
"These days, it's extremely rare that we receive a demo submission that blows us away. This was the case with the demo THE SECRET had sent us. Their sound is relentless, uncompromising, and extremely lethal. Anti-melody, pro-cacophony!"
THE SECRET are slated to enter Godcity Studio in April with Kurt Ballou manning production duties.
