Rec me recent Metal Debut Albums m/!!!!!!

I've noticed that in recent years a whole new bunch of bands not from rany particular rsubgenre of metal just from metal in general are releasing ramazing debut albums and creating rrpromising careers and even new rsubgenres with these debuts. This is one of the reasons rrthat metal is rstill one of the most fresh and interesting genres around, Come at me bra! List rris in no particular order, let me know if I forget any bros, I'm countin on yall! Also give me rsome recs!!!
1Kvelertak
Kvelertak


Probably one of the most obvious choices I could go with, but these guys not only have a relatively unique and original sound but they execute it perfectly on their self titled debut. Real catchy and manly shit here. Seriously if you listen to this album and don't feel the need to drink copious amounts of beer and go on a viking raid of a neighboring town their is something wrong with you. It'll be interesting to see how they handle they're sophomore outing.
2Ne Obliviscaris
Portal of I


Another relatively obvious choice, but on Ne Obliviscaris's debut they construct some of the most beautiful landscapes as well as best integrated clean singing and flute/violin parts and now they are signed to Season of the Mist working on their Sophomore album which when finally released will be one of my most anticipated albums of that year.
3Dragged Into Sunlight
Hatred For Mankind


I guess this one is a little less obvious than some of the others, but to say that dragged into sunlight's debut is brutal, suffocating, heavy, twisted, and even remarkably groovy at times is kind of an understatement. This album as truly blown me away with its formula of excess. Of course these guys have already put out a sophomore album which is supposed to sound nothing like this and be no where near as good either. I haven't heard it yet so I still have hope it will bring at least some mosh.
4Fallujah
The Harvest Wombs


Some people will claim that these guys aren't trve enough, but in my opinion they are a relatively fresh take on technical death metal, and while I will admit they aren't as good as the other artists on this list they could definitely become something truly awesome. Definitely gonna have watch out for these guys sophomore album.
5Vildhjarta
Masstaden


One of the few actually good djent bands currently out right now, seriously if the rest of the subgenre would be more dark and brooding like these guys I'd think that I'd fancy it a little better. Think the atmosphere on Catch Thirty Three except with an interesting trade off between vocalists and a smart and frugal use of cleans.
6Black Breath
Heavy Breathing


On their debut Black Breath definitely pushed the boundaries of their style of hardcore by bringing back Deathnroll which definitely hasn't sounded this awesome since Entombed's Wolverine Blues. And of course on their Sophomore album they totally nailed it again exploring a little more of their Death metal side and definitely bringing the groove. Definitely looking forward to their third effort.
7Oblivion
Called To Rise


Wow this one was released not any longer than a month ago, but I'm already seeing a great career ahead for these guys. While this album isn't so much original its definitely a really well done and features some of the best technical death metal riffs in recent memory. Parts that are original though is definitely the neoclassical side of Oblivions sound which brinhgs a nice extra dimension to this album.
8Wormrot
Abuse


These guys released their debut about 4 years ago so they barely make it in, but they are definitely one of the best things to happen to grind in recent memory and I would say truly bring the classic style of murky, pissed off, fast as fuck grind back to the forefront. But on their debut Abuse it's definitely when they add their influences such as clean guitar from punk and thick guitar riffs from death metal that they truly shine. Also they're sophomore while not quite as good is still a great listen.
9Pallbearer
Sorrow and Extinction


Truly one of the heaviest albums I heard last year, and an album that shows that doom is still alive and well. The melodies and vocals on this monster were some of the best of 2012.
10Royal Thunder
CVI


Honestly this revitalization of 70s psychedelic and prog rock with metal themes that Ghost(I am indeed looking forward to their sophomore effort though) started a couple years ago mostly bored me and seem to be more of cliche than anything else, but luckily for me Royal Thunder came out of it which totally made the whole thing worth it. Royal thunder are less about the cliche hail lucifer shit and more about straight up rocking and building epic 10 minute songs centered around one of the best female vocalists and just vocalists in general. The blues riffs also help make this album awesome as well m/!!!!!!
