Our Metal Playlist Raises A Fist To Lair Of The Minotaur

The Best Metal From August, And Beyond

On June 29, 2018

Every month, our Deaf Forever column rounds up the best releases in metal, ranging from Swedish post-black and d-beat to Tunisian metalcore and post-power metal. Deaf Forever is also now a playlist: a collection of the month’s best metal, plus whatever our metal columnist, Andy O’Connor, feels like putting in here. It’s the most punishing, unrelenting Spotify playlist you’ll listen to every month. Turn up the volume and raise your second and fifth digits, this is Deaf Forever.

The playlist this month is a mini Lair of the Minotaur primer, as well as all the best tracks from this month. If you’re gonna abandon your kid to go see Godflesh, listen to this on the way.

Profile Picture of Andy O'Connor
Andy O'Connor

Andy O'Connor's mom bought him a copy of Fargo Rock City during his freshman year of high school, hoping he would become the next Klosterman and bring honor to the O'Connor name. Instead, he's a metal critic who lives in Austin, Texas, and who has written for Spin, Pitchfork, Noisey, and more. His metal column, DEAF FOREVER is on Vinyl Me, Please every month. At least he's the best metal critic living in Austin.
