Haven't Been Around For Awhile

title says it all, list is a bunch of songs/albums/bands that are excellent and that you should like too

An excellent album with excellent songs by an excellent band. If you get any sort of boner for hardcore, this is a MUST. Listen to "Power Chord Blues," "Half Brother, All Cop," and "We Have More Sense Than Lies"
2The Dillinger Escape Plan
Calculating Infinity

Brilliant technicality without ever getting stale. Assuming you've heard this, so play "Sugar Coated Sour" and "43% Burnt" for me.
3A Wilhelm Scream
Career Suicide

Essential shredtastic punk. Listen to "The Horse" and "We Built This City! (On Debts and Booze)"
Cold and Distant, Not Loving

Unfortunately they broke up, but you can still listen to "Little Mountains We Move" and thank me

A glorious breath of fresh air. "The First Supper" and "The Hit" for the RIFFFS
Death of a Dead Day

See 2! "Bland Street Bloom" and "Another Sinking Ship"
Diamond Eyes

This was the biggest grower I've ever had the pleasure of loving. "Prince" is flawless.
8The Fall of Troy

One of the only Post Hardcore albums I've ever loved. "FCPREMIX" slays for days
9Streetlight Manifesto
Everything Goes Numb

Probably have listened to this at least once a week for the past 3 years. "We Are The Few," "A Moment of Silence/Violence," and "A Better Place, A Better Time" are classics.
10Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

"c'mmmmmmmmmon Skinny Love......"
11Bomb the Music Industry!
Goodbye Cool World

This could really be any BtMI! album, but this one has "Side Projects Are Never Successful"
12Giant Squid
The Ichthyologist

Love this so much I didn't even need to look at the title for spelling. "Throwing a Donner Party at Sea" and "Sevengill" are breathtaking
13The Secret

So underrated. "Fire Isn't Always Meant to Burn"
14RX Bandits

This stuck to me since day 1. "It's Only a Parsec..." and "Hope is a Butterfly, No Net Its Captor"
15Titus Andronicus
The Monitor

Another huge grower, also the first indie album I ever really enjoyed front to back. "The Battle of Hampton Roads" obviously
16The Tallest Man on Earth
Shallow Grave

fell in love to this album once. "The Gardner" could be the best folk song
17System of a Down
System of a Down

Before they tried to hard. "War?" and "Mind"
18Poison the Well
The Tropic Rot

Metalcore done perfect. "Antarctica Inside Me" and "Cinema" bleed emotion
19The State Lottery
When the Night Comes

"Coming Alive" will never ever get old
20Youth Lagoon
The Year of Hibernation

Perhaps the most recent album to hit me HARD. "Montana" and "Seventeen" are revelations.
