Oppressive Music Day

So much music came out today/very recently and I'll be spending all day catching up.
1Circa Survive
The Amulet


Didn't like much before Blue Sky Noise or after (BSN is about as close to a 5 as you can get for me, oddly enough). So I'm anxious to check this because the singles have been dece.
2Vacivus
Temple Of The Abyss


Predicting this to be an album I don't finish--standard DM I have heard a billion times this year already. Still, seems like the riffs will be cool judging from the single.
3Alvvays
Antisocialites


Loved the aesthetic of their debut but the album was meh. Positive press on this has me excited.
4Chelsea Wolfe
Hiss Spun


I feel like I am never fully rewarded by her but I could be in the mood for some roiling, moody music.
5Archspire
Relentless Mutation


I HATED their last album. I will probably hate this too but the singles are tolerable.
6Blut Aus Nord
Deus Salutis Meae


Didn't know this existed until it hit the promo inbox but from what I have heard it's some of their darkest and weirdest material yet.
7The Killers
Wonderful Wonderful


Fond, nostalgic memories of this band as a teenager (okay, just "Hot Fuss") so I will check this out because I liked one of the singles. Expecting bad music though.
8Mastodon
Cold Dark Place


Haven't liked anything they've done since The Hunter, and before then maybe Leviathan? Cautiously jamming and expecting bland hard rock with a metal veneer.
9Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers


Listened to the stream a bit and liked it. Didn't love it, but as someone who really disliked that last one, this was a nice surprise.
10Monarch (FRA)
Never Forever


Excited to get my doom on
11Cradle of Filth
Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay


I've only heard one song by this band and it was like 10 years ago but hey I'll check this
12Big Brave
Ardor


Saw some positive press, will check
13The Contortionist
Clairvoyant


Ugh, sure why not
14Wolves in the Throne Room
Thrice Woven


Quintessential lonely winter day music, at a time when there's a week of 90 degree weather.
