My End Of The Year List
10Full of Hell
Roots Of Earth Are Consuming My Home


This band is absolutely insane live. They put on a hell of a show and until I listened to this on vinyl, I didn't realize just how good they were. Definitely one of the best hardcore releases of the year.

Sleep On It


Although it is not the most mature album, it is an awesome album and it's fun to listen to. I've seen these guys 3 times in the last year and they sound better live than they do recorded.
8Trash Talk
Awake


Trash Talk's best work since Walking Disease in my opinion.
7CityCop
Seasons


Another Ashtabula band with a bright future ahead of them. I haven't stopped listening to this since I got it.
6Code Orange Kids
Cycles


I just got back from the vinyl release show for this and got a test pressing of it. It's very dark, sludgy hardcore from Pittsburgh. It's catchy and the entire album fits wonderfully.
5Pianos Become The Teeth
The Lack Long After


The best screamo release I've heard in a long time. I wasn't sure how I felt about this album until I saw them live. After I did, I decided that it was one of the best albums of the year.
4Touche Amore
Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me


This album is not nearly as good as ...to the beat of a dead horse, but is still a masterpiece. It may be a rather cliche choice, but I do enjoy listening to it quite a lot.
3Departures
When Losing Everything Is Everything You Wanted


The best hardcore release of the year in my opinion. Very well composed and emotional melodic hardcore from the UK.
2Basement
I Wish I Could Stay Here


The best pop-punk release of the year in my opinion. While Title Fight's Shed is great, this album is phenomenal and I haven't been able to stop listening to it since I got it. Their EP is quite possibly better than this, but I'm not sure when it came out.

Holding Stone


So, I'm fairly certain that nobody here has listened to this other than me. Which is a shame since this 11 minute EP has more emotion than most full lengths do, not to mention the fact that it's absolutely beautiful. It is a 3- piece folk band from Pittsburgh with members of Code Orange Kids with 2 female vocalists, a guitar, and an upright bass. I'd definitely recommend checking this out.
