Quartuma 2/2015

i kinda rushed on this i know
30Twenty One Pilots
Blurryface


hip-hop/pop rock. this was getting high ratings so i figured why not check it out. turned out three songs in i almost threw up. unbearably cheesy and overproduced. 1.4/5
29As It Is
Never Happy, Ever After


pop punk. probably the least interesting pop punk album of the year. this is everything that is wrong with the genre. 1.5/5
28Silverstein
I Am Alive In Everything I Touch


post-hardcore. i don’t even know why i listened to this because silverstein has always sounded juvenile, unoriginal and bland to me. this album doesn’t change my opinion in any way. 2/5
27Mew
+-


dream pop. bleh, i was never a fan of no more stories either but this is even more boring for the most part. 2.3/5
26Agnostic Front
The American Dream Died


hardcore punk. tbqh i have never really cared for agnostic front that much and this isn’t any better than i expected. i’m quite surprised these nyhc legends are still making music. 2.5/5
25Refused
Freedom


post-hardcore. one of my most anticipated albums in 2015 so far also proves to be the biggest disappointment of the year so far. refused don’t give a shit about what people want them to do but this is experimentation gone all wrong. 2.5/5
24Muse
Drones


alt rock. it’s great to hear muse sounding like muse again after the senseless experimentation of their last two albums but it’s also very disappointing to hear they can’t get anywhere near the level of their early 00s records. 2.6/5
23Citizen
Everybody Is Going To Heaven


post-hardcore. sounds like brand new if they stopped caring about cohesion. 2.6/5
22Ceremony (USA-CA)
The L-Shaped Man


post-punk. i have no idea what they’re going for with these joy division rip-off songs. zzzzzzzz. 2.6/5
21And So I Watch You From Afar
Heirs


math rock. this band is still technically quite impressive but that’s about it. i just don’t get any kicks from this. 2.8/5
20Drudkh
A Furrow Cut Short


folky black metal. such a disappointing release after the great eternal turn of the wheel. drudkh fails to do anything actually interesting on here. 2.8/5
19God Is An Astronaut
Helios/Erebus


post-rock. after origins it seemed like giaa’s story is over but helios/erebus proved me wrong. i’m glad that they finally try something different and stray from their predictable-as-fuck formula. sadly the heavier moments on this are very, very average. 3/5
18Envy
Atheist's Cornea


screamo/post-rock. it’s still envy and it’s still good but it also sounds way too much like it’s all been heard before. 3.1/5
17The Tallest Man on Earth
Dark Bird Is Home


indie folk. a bit overproduced for my taste but this guy can still write some great folk tunes. 3.3/5
16Doda Lov
Allt Vi Har Kvar


screamo. i love post-rock tinged screamo and this is also really well done but i still feel it lacks something to make it really powerful. 3.3/5
15Gallows
Desolation Sounds


hardcore punk. the british hardcore “giants” haven’t really been relevant in years but desolation sounds shows they still got it. 3.4/5
14KEN mode
Success


post-hardcore/noise rock. ken mode strip down all the metal elements from their music and the result is a very albini-like album which kinda lacks ken mode’s identity but still manages to be quite an intriguing effort. 3.4/5
13Raein
Perpetuum


screamo. you can always rely on good ol’ raein but they’re still missing the album that would really bring them up along with the legends of the genre. 3.5/5
12Built to Spill
Untethered Moon


indie rock. built to spill will probably never again reach their 90s stuff in quality but, like raein, you can always count on them when it’s about making a worthwhile album. 3.6/5
11Ennui (ITA)
Al fin di mostrare di non sapere cosa alcuna


screamo. the proper envy album of 2015. 3.6/5
10Marriages
Salome


shoegaze. such a satisfying debut full-length and even though i know marriages is capable of even better i still really really like this a lot. 3.8/5
9Sun Kil Moon
Universal Themes


indie folk. the surprise release of the year. while everyone is still jizzing over last year’s benji, it gets easily unnoticed that sun kil moon already has a new album, which is actually even better than its predecessor. 3.8/5
8A God or an Other / The Vatican
The Great Northern


blackened crust punk. heavy as fuck. everyone interested in blackened crust should check out this excellent split between two very promising bands. 3.9/5
7mewithoutYou
Pale Horses


indie rock/post-hardcore. mewithoutyou provide a logical, no-surprises follow-up to ten stories. it rules, naturally. 3.9/5
6Bosse-de-Nage
All Fours


atmospheric black metal. one of the most intriguing and creative black metal albums i’ve heard all year. finally a post-bm album that shows the genre doesn’t have to be a one-trick pony. 4/5
5Ghost of a Dead Hummingbird
Sin Forma


screamo. ghost of a dead hummingbird may not provide anything groundbreaking on their debut but sin forma is an extremely beautiful skramz album and you know i’m a real sucker for this kind of music. 4/5
4Rosetta
Quintessential Ephemera


post-metal. it’s soothing to hear rosetta leaving the anaesthete’s mistakes in the past and instead going in a lighter direction which works incredibly well. rosetta’s back guise. 4.1/5
3ostraca
deathless


screamo. i have never heard kilgore trout but if they’re anything like this i’ll love them. deathless is a heavy and powerful screamo album, definitely one of the best in the genre this year. 4.2/5
2Steve Von Till
A Life Unto Itself


folk. this was my first touch in von till’s solo stuff and my god was i impressed. a near-perfect dark, atmospheric folk album. steve’s voice couldn’t fit more in this. 4.5/5
1Titus Andronicus
The Most Lamentable Tragedy


punk rock. *actually a q3 album but it leaked early in june so* after the (slight) misstep that was local business titus andronicus get back on the right track. the most lamentable tragedy is an ambitious punk rock opera full of sweet tunes, twists and turns. despite its overwhelming length the album still keeps its cohesive surprisingly well. not a single dull moment found in here. 4.7/5
