Another favourite mix compiling some of the most obliterating and unapologetic sounds in extreme metal, executed by the elite in the field. Hymns to the contemporary cookie monster playbook, here the vocals – when present – are buried well down the mix – for good.

Hissing has been a very exciting prospect for a number of releases now. They could go one further and hook with say FOH or The Body for what would surely be some wicked collaborations.
