Dan Avidan's new project, and it honestly might be his best yet. Always wanted more Skyhill but this might satiate that need if we get more.
20Fennec
A Couple of Good Days


Deep House/Outsider House

Look at the kitty!
19Saviour
Shine and Fade

Aussie pals back at it again, not as good as the last album and they add some MALE clean vocals which means less Shontay cleans which is a step backwards imo! Bryant is a beast tho

12Oceans Ate Alaska
Disparity


Metalcore/Djent

We don't talk about that album without James, cause he came back with a ferocity unmatched. Dude's highs and lows were always a shining point on the band. Almost a lofi core thing going on here that I'd like them to explore more on the next album
11Polyphia
Remember That You Will Die


Trap Prog/Have a Lot of Haters Who are Mad core

10Bad Omens
The Death of Peace of Mind

Shift in sound to a more electronic style, Noah is solidifying himself as one of the best vocalists in the scene (cue botb and cold saying how much they hate him lol)

1Royal Coda
To Only a Few at First


SWANCORE/Post Hardcore

Kurt you beautiful man. Dance Gavin Dance (the now disgusting mess) also released an album this year, and then this came out and blew it out of the goddamn water. Will and Sergio's guitar play is next level, big Joe Arrington on the kit is as immaculate as ever, the bass does bass things, and Kurt sounds almost better than he ever has. Please read Brandon's wonderful review for this, RIP you beautiful man you are dearly missed on this site by everyone :[
