Still here

Yep, been lurking for quite a while but I'm gonna share what I've been into the last few months so feel free to pass some recs my way.
1Coheed and Cambria
In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3


Well first off I'd like to comment on the much improved interface for making lists. Much more encouraging! This album is what I'm listening to at this very moment, but I'm listening to COCA in regular intervals nowadays.
2Son of Aurelius
Under a Western Sun


I was as giddy as a school girl seeing Ryan Gosling when I found these guys. An embodiment of my favorite genre to a tee.
3Tides of Man
Young and Courageous


One of my favorites to spin on a relaxing day. Or as something to fall asleep to.
4Between the Buried and Me
Coma Ecliptic


So fresh that I can't even spin it on Spotify (my only outlet without a consistent personal computer/laptop for massive music storage). I'm so happy they nailed this, especially since Pale Communion has turned out to be an album that doesn't sit well with me when I'm shuffling Opeth. The standout factor is that it's the first album I've found in a while worth the inconvenience of not having it on Spotify yet. Here's to hoping they waste no time putting it on Spotify tomorrow.
5Darkness Divided
Written in Blood


Another rendition of my very favorite genre. Not quite as enthralling as Son, but I was very happy to find a band that pleased me the same way Phinehas does.
6August Burns Red
Rescue & Restore


I'd rather not list every album, but I've only recently started to really get into these guys and love each release in different ways. This record piqued my interest just enough and the deed was done when I revisited Thrill Seeker and fell right in love.
7Architects
Lost Forever // Lost Together


Another that took me some time. I feel like a shame that I found BMTH's third album and thought "why aren't there more bands like this". Now enlightened, I realize that that will never hold a torch to anything Architects will ever do.
8Haste the Day
Coward


Old HTD came straight out of my younger years and it fell off soon after Keech took the helm. I eventually came full circle when their reunion was announced and then this album absolutely blew my mind. Currently stands with Coma and a few others as my nominations for AOTY.
9Machine Head
Unto the Locust


Really all albums aside from the nu-metal phase, I chose Locust because this was their first new release after I had first really tried em out.
10Iron Maiden
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son


Always loved Maiden, but this record prompted me to really dig into their discography. Work of art.
11Revocation
Chaos of Forms


This is a group that I want to know more bands around. I only know of a couple others that have a similar sound but none that really get close enough (necessity of not being a clone considered)
12Tycho
Past is Prologue


Awake got me hooked on Tycho but when I heard PBS this one became a favorite. I don't know nearly enough groups that have the same chill vibe as them and the next one on my list.
13Baths
Obsidian


I didn't like Baths immediately, but when I came around to em it went straight to love.
14Broadway
Contexture: Gods, Men & The Infinite Cosmos


Their previous records don't really intrigue me like this new one does, though it did help me appreciate them more. Very tasty mix of sounds.
15Cursive
Domestica


It began when my sis got me into Mama, I'm Swollen and once I was enlightened by the almighty Ugly Organ and Domestica there was no turning back. Entire discography is just amazing, I would like to hear more groups in the same genre without lacking the artistic weirdness Kasher and co consistently dole out.
16Death
Individual Thought Patterns


I admit to my blasphemous ways of not recognizing Chuck as my lord and savior any sooner than I did. May he have mercy upon me. When I realized how much they and Machine Head among others had such direct on my favorite band (Trivium, in case you don't know/forgot) I righteously felt like a moron.
17King Diamond
''Them''


My dad piqued my interest here, but I had a renaissance once I found out that LaRocque took part in Individual Thought Patterns. But correct me if I'm wrong, I'm pretty sure it was still mostly Chuck if not entirely.
18Hail the Sun
Wake


Along with the next two, easily the quickest addition to my very favorite bands. Absolutely mindblowing to me as a drummer.
19Ne Obliviscaris
Citadel


I had expressed my love for them some time ago but after I found Opeth I was disappointed to realize not many others had the same sort of "it" factor they did until I found NeO.
20Night Verses
Lift Your Existence


I honestly prefer most tracks on this record without any vocals, here's another drummer's shoutout to the genius drummer enthroned with a group that he really overshadows but in the best way (not to discredit the amazing writing in any way)
21Underoath
Act of Depression


It took me some time to really appreciate the roots. The Changing of Times was the closest I got, but this opened me up to an important step in the progression of metalcore.
