DECASIA DECASIA
While other bands are taking the sound of stoner rock in more complicated progressive directions (not that that's a bad thing) it's refreshing to hear a band that keeps it about as simple and groovy as possible. This is what the three piece DECASIA successfully accomplishes on their debut silf titled EP. Tracks sound rough and fuzzy in the best way and the vocal production especially does a great job making this album sound like it cam out of California in the 90s. Though it does lack originality at times DECASIA more than make up for it by sticking to their groovy riffs and fill fueled drumming. Best songs: Dive, Blue Love, and Dune

The Crown Death Is Not Dead
While "Death Is Not Dead" doesn't even attempt anything new it still successfully shows off The Crown's solid song writing ability. Many a riff shall be stuck in your head after giving this a listen. Laughable lyrics and some tedious moments sadly keep this album from truly shining. Still this is a good album for any bands discography. Best Songs: Godeater and Meduseld

Killswitch Engage Alive or Just Breathing
One of the most influential albums for metal in the early 2000's. Basically a release that has been aped by practically every bland metalcore band that followed...all of them falling short of the original. Alive or Just Breathing strikes the perfect middle ground between amazing catchy song writing and undeniably hardcore infused instrumentation. Best songs: Just Barely Breathing, Life to the Lifeless, and Fixation on the Darkness

Dead in the Manger Cessation
The first masterwork of 2015, Dead in the Manger orchestrate quite a beautiful command over dynamics on Cessation. Beautifully Somber and savagely brutal are mixed seamlessly from one moment to the next creating an album the flows like a single journey through a land of loss and depression. Bands like Dead in the Manger, who successfully blur the lines between genres like black metal, grind, and even some post rock influence are the future of metal: New, Exciting, and always Engaging m/! Best songs, III, V, and VI

  • DirtyDan Yeah there really isn't such thing as a bad Amon Amarth song. They are probably the most consistently awesome band out there.
