Across the Sun Before The Night Takes Us
Another surprise in the metalcore scene. Filled with progressive and death metal tendencies, Across the Sun bring a lot of potential to their debut album "Before The Night Takes Us." There's a lot of positivity in the lyrics, as well as some pretty sweet riffing and melody. While not entirely original, this does show a lot of promise for the young band, who perform this style a little bit better than the majority of bands like them. 8/10
Absent Distance Common Ghost of the Lifelines
An excellent surprise from a band that could very well be on par with Textures and many other bands in the modern progressive/djent movement. Combining experimental, ambient, and progressive elements into one, Absent Distance bring an album that is as ferocious as it is soothing. This is an excellent start for a promising band, and I can't wait to hear more! 9/10
Abiotic Symbiosis
As far as technical death metal goes, Abiotic show a lot of potential on "Symbiosis." It's very fast and very enjoyable, though one can argue that the abundance of fast riffs resorts to the band "wanking" their instruments a little too much. Regardless, while this album is not a masterpiece nor is it the best that the band could offer, it's still a solid release that shows Abiotic's musical power that may grow upon future albums. 8/10
Abominable Putridity The Anomalies of Artificial Origin
If I could describe this album in one word, it would be SLAM. And that's exactly what "The Anomalies of Artificial Origin" does. It slams all the way from the beginning to the very end. Definitely for fans of brutal, down-tuned death metal. 8.5/10
Abnormality Contaminating the Hive Mind
Brutal death metal at its finest. "Contaminating The Hive Mind" shows that Abnormality are not a force to be reckoned with and that in time they may become one of the best in modern death metal. Taking influence from bands such as Dying Fetus and Suffocation, they bring a heavy dose of brutality into each song and never let it go. This a band that deserves your attention and have demonstrated a lot of power and strength even at such a young age. Definitely check this one out. 9/10
Abigail Williams Becoming
A very solid atmospheric black metal album that captured my attention throughout its duration. Not among the best in its genre, but still a nice nod to bands such as Wolves In The Throne Room and Agalloch. Definitely worth checking out. 8/10
36 Crazyfists Rest Inside the Flames
Maybe not among the best metalcore albums in recent memory, but Rest Inside The Flames is still a fun, catchy, and relentlessly heavy album, showing potential for the boys in 36 Crazyfists.
