Jrowa001 Digs These

so heres some albums ive come across the last month or so that i think are worth checking out if it sounds like something youll like. let me know what you think or if youve heard any of these
1Walknut
Graveforests and Their Shadows


amazing atmospheric black metal
2Engineer
The Dregs


solid hardcore band
3Lunatic Soul
Lunatic Soul


side project of Riverside's vocalist Duda. more prog rock but this stuff is a little more spacey and it has some world folk thrown in
4Senmuth
Planetary Dust


darkwave/instrumental band. good background music
5 Lunar Aurora
Welteng?nger


black metal. fucking awesome black metal. i really wish sputnik would allow accents. its Welteng?nger btw
6Carpathian Forest
Defending the Throne of Evil


ive heard mixed things about this band. i found this album to be pretty good symphonic black metal
7Dan Deacon
Bromst


this album is just plain awesome and fun. read the review for it.
8The Sorrow
Blessings From a Blackened Sky


Unearth-esque metalcore band but not a ripoff band. solid instrumentals and the guitarists are great. vocals are where a lot of the unearth comparisons come to play, but the added clean vocals distance this from unearth.
9 Sombres For?ts
Royaume de Glace


its about time i got this album. its amazing! for any fans of black metal
10Propagandhi
Supporting Caste


ive been listening to this so many times since it leaked. a strong 4.5 from me and possibly a 5. its that good. punk would be dead if it werent for Propagandhi and A Wilhelm Scream.
11Gustaf Spetz
Good Night Mr. Spetz


so this is what Coldplay would sound like if they didnt bore the crap out of me and have tolerable vocals.
12Marissa Nadler
Little Hells


one of the best female folk artist of our time. this is her best album yet and she delivers some excellent acoustic guitar songs that will capture your mood from the start
13Marilies Jagsch
Obituary for a Lost Mind


damn this album is eerie for a female folk artist. very sad songs accompanied by some hopeful ones. her voice is relaxing and sad.
14Festival
Come, Arrow, Come!


an upbeat female folk duo. i like how their vocals layer each other
15Soap and Skin
Lovetune For Vacuum


whoever added this should have put the name as Soap&Skin. what a beautiful album. piano driven music with female vocals over a somewhat darkwave atmosphere. theres some catchy moments but thats not what this album is about. some songs are too short (heck i think the album couldve been a bit longer), but overall this is one of my fav albums of the year so far
16Vaka
Kappa Delta Phi


sludge metal with the lead singer of Ghost Brigade taking care of the vocals. if you like sludge then get this. it is solid stuff
17Runemagick
Enter the Realm of Death


traditional doom inspired death metal. this album is for anyone who considers themselves a metalhead. you will be headbanging like no other and you will be feeling so fucking manly! im talking to you Balls
18Kongh
Counting Heartbeats


sludge metal band. songs are more atmospheric than other hard hitting sludge bands, but this still is a heavy album and feels like a giant tidal wave
19Oh Land
Fauna


female fronted indie pop
20Gabriela Kulka
Out


female fronted indie with a bluesy edge
21The Reasoning
Dark Angel


prog rock with both female and male vocals. . for fans of Paatos and Brave
22Havok
Being and Nothingness


their Apathy Esplanade EP is one of the best death metal EPs ive ever heard from this new death metal band. no we see their debut LP and it doesnt disappoint. extremely skilled band that know how to write fast, heavy, catchy riffs with chaotic drumming and ferocious vocals. i demand you all to check this band out
23The Lawrence Arms
Oh! Calcutta!


i brushed this off the first time i heard it a while ago, but i got the ambition to try it again and i really enjoyed it. great punk
24Achilles
Hospice


sludgy hardcore. vocals are immense, but ive heard this done before
25Biffy Clyro
Infinity Land


over time this has become my favorite BC album. catchy post-hardcore with some math rock guitars thrown in. vocals are so good!
26Harlem Shakes
Technicolor Health


indie/elecronic pop group. very danceable album
27School of Seven Bells
Alpinisms


similar to Harlem Shakes but with female vocals
28The Phantom band
Checkmate Savage


interesting band. dont really know what genre to put them under. could be indie but the vocals are not like the normal indie bands youre used to. just check them out and see for yourself
29The Agonist
Lullabies for the Dormant Mind


ok, so i didnt not like their previous album AT ALL! i thought it was messy and just very amateurish. now their new album comes along and i am reluctant to check it out, but i did and im pleasantly surprised with a very matured band that seems to know what they want to do. the vocals are insane! a nice surprise
30Our Broken Garden
When Your Blackening Shows


a soft and simple dreamy folk album from this female finnish artist. the vocals dont ever get intense, but just stay at a calm pace. if youre in the mood to relax and take a nice sleep then pop this in. it works more as a relaxer than something you can sit and listen to
31Irepress
Sol Eye Sea I


post-rock/mathy rock. talented band. some parts, especially the beginning of the opening song has some heavier, technical riffs
32Burbuja
Burbuja


female led trip-hop. more poppy then most trip-hop but still the beats are great
33Glorior Belli
Manifesting the Raging Beast


black metal with clean production but they play a style that should have a more rawer sound. all around its good stuff but might be a little too clean
34 We're All Gonna Die
Kiss the Ground, Curse the Sky


stoner rock/metal. the heavier songs are much better then their slower rock ballad songs. the vocals dont work well in those ones.
35El Caco
Heat


the new album from one of my fav hard rock bands. more of the same but not as good as their previous two albums
