Anneke Van Giersbergen is my early pick for album of the year and Architects is my early pick for disappointment of the year.

In between those extremes, Epica, Moonspell, and Evergrey are all pretty good.

Still want to hear Black Sheep Wall, Helstar, Jetty Bones, Karima Walker, Landmvrks, NoFX, Sad Night Dynamite, Spelljammer, and Sydney Sprague.

Well that's that then : ] 2021 still coming up with the goods this week as well.

Nocte

Moonspell's on the playlist, just added Evergrey because I legit forgot about those guys.

nightbringer

Feeling uninspired by 2021's output thus far.

Willie

@ Johnny: This is kind of a new sound for Anneke. It's almost like a mix of Aurora, The Cranberries, and a little Meg & Dia.

TheNotrap
02.23.21
Evergrey will be my week jam, I'll also be checking Forhist, Iotunn and Vektor / Cryptosis.

ChoccyPhilly

theBoneyKing

Not much a fan of Julien Baker really but will check the album out of some sense of duty to keep up with the s/s crowd.

SteakByrnes
02.23.21
I'm pretty sure Landmvrks got pushed back to March

Divaman
02.23.21
Epica for me.

BlushfulHippocrene

Ready to be hugely disappointed by new Julien and slap a 5 on it anyway.

@ Johnny: It's still Anneke, but I hear some new influences for sure. Whether or not you hear the same thing will depend on how familiar you are with the other bands I mentioned. It's still Anneke, for sure. She's just doing something a bit different. I do have a promo. Trying to write a review, but I'm so out of practice that's it's not as natural as it used to be.

Also fixed the few oversights and the early accidental inclusion.

I liked the art for that LANDMVRKS album and hey, now I have a new anticipated release for Friday to go with JB. This shit slaps.

RedRightHand

SlothcoreSam

New Jetty Bones is atrocious

cristane
02.26.21
You should change the genre for that Architects album to pop-rock...

WatchItExplode
02.27.21
Live dangerously pick out some albums to listen to based on album art alone
