|Gameofmetal's 2015 so far (to be continued)|
Well everyone's doing quarter 1 and quarter 2 lists, and I wanted to join in on the party. I didn't do quarter 1 though so you lucky bastards get everything I listened to since the beginning of this year. ARE YOUR BODIES READY. List is worst to best obv
Party People's Anthem
Holy shit this is so bad. Attila's latest album is shit and it still seems godly in comparison.
|2||All That Remains|
The Order of Things
Better than their last album but that's not saying much. Still a pile of crap mostly.
|3||Fall Out Boy|
American Beauty / American Psycho
Like two catchy songs, the rest are annoying and bad.
The Ark Work
The flattest rating chart ever. I guess I just don't get it, because there are people giving it crazy good ratings. Most of it is just abrasive and boring, with some enjoyable moments and flashes of awesome.
More boring than their debut. A slightly less annoying version of Issues.
The singles were very good and interesting, but as a whole the album just bores.
|7||Feed Her to the Sharks|
A run of the mill old school metalcore album with the modern scene's over reliance on breakdowns.
Contexture: Gods, Men & The Infinite Cosmos
Just didn't really do anything for me.
The Lovers / The Devil
Went more nu metal, added singing, and became less guilty pleasure fun heavy angry shit.
|10||From First to Last|
Really predictable post hardcore, with Spencer Sotelo's over the top annoying presence. The last song is horrendous, even if the rest of the album isn't really bad, just average.
|11||Tyler, the Creator|
Another all over the place, inconsistent, inconstant album. I'm usually a fair fan of his, but this one just lacked a few too many gems.
Some Type Of Love
That song he did with Wiz Khalifa has been stuck in my head for ages, but his own stuff is just unimpressive.
|13||Six Feet Under|
Crypt of the Devil
Boring, generic death metal with a vocalist that just needs to quit.
|14||Extinction Level Event|
The whole no guitar, only bass djent idea was funny on the first track or two, but goddamn does it wear thin by the end. It's even more remarkable how such a short EP can bore so quickly.
|15||My Tears, Your Weapon|
Boredom Compilation v.1
Just kinda doesn't do anything, but I respect Snide's moxie. His other releases are better.
The Deathmass Cloak
Some really awkward transitions, songwriting, and guitar leads sprinkled in, but all in all it's a decent death/doom record.
Don't remember this too well. I believe it was a stoner rock EP that minorly impressed me. Don't know a thing about stoner shit, but it was aight.
|18||The Last Ten Seconds of Life|
A lot more nu metal in the mix did not a great followup make. Their last record and EP were much heavier and better, but this has its moments.
The poppier of the two and the less impressive by far.
|20||Tear Out The Heart|
Generic but enjoyable metalcore. Just too much material though and the album drags by the end, unlike their last, which was a damn good time for how unoriginal it was.
Blackened hardcore. Too little material to really make an impact, but good nonetheless.
One Man Army
Waffling between a 3 and a 2.5, semi decent semi boring folk metal.
The Hate Campaign
Does Black Tongue better than Black Tongue, and with at least a little more speed.
|24||Oceans Ate Alaska|
Bad clean singing, all over the place songwriting, but talent's there and it's not unenjoyable.
|25||Falling in Reverse|
Just Like You
A fuckton better than their last album, which was awful. Still only decent.
|26|| ||Funeral Oppression|
Solid, if unimpressive depressive black metal.
|27||Andrew W. Gold|
Contrib project. Don't know shit about electronic music, but I thought it was pretty good.
|28||Sleeping With Sirens|
Not as bad as their last. Passable poppy post hardcore.
A much needed comeback after their last piece of shit. Still the same old deathcore but with a bit more atmosphere and punch.
|30||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress'
I don't really fuck with drone shit, so the first three tracks mostly bored me. Last one was pretty good though.
|31||All Time Low|
A bit poppy for my taste but good pop punk.
|32||Every Time I Die|
Vicious and sweet despite the short length. Solid overall.
A Furrow Cut Short
Just boring by the standards of a great atmospheric black metal band. Little of memorable quality and there's not any real atmosphere.
Dropped the core, and went full tech death. Overcompressed and produced terribly, but not horrible overall. Music just lacks anything standout. The technicality and attempt to be progressive just isn't as much fun as the off the wall deathcore they used to peddle.
|35||The Raven Autarchy|
The Obscene Deliverance
Tech deathcore, not bad, not great. Just good.
|36||In Hearts Wake|
Vocal performance all around kinda sucks, but there are some good musical moments in there. Especially when they cool it on the metalcore chug a lugs.
|37||My Tears, Your Weapon|
When We Fall Asleep (Demo EP)
Decent Snide electro tracks.
|38||Set It Off|
Duality: Stories Unplugged
Acoustic takes on a few tracks from their last album. Duality was not the direction I wanted them to take but it's not bad by any means.
|39||My Tears, Your Weapon|
On the Edge of Reason
The metalcore bits are tacked on and unexplored, but overall the EP isn't too bad. Hell the heavier bits speak more to industrial chordal riffs than metalcore.
A digression. The clean singing is gone, the songwriting is slides to close to average, and there are few memorable sections.
The Architect of Extinction
Brutal as hell slam/deathcore with a fairly varied vocalist, something not seen often in slam.
Great modernized thrash, but goes a bit too long.
L'Aorasie des Spectres Rêveurs
Solid atmospheric black metal. Found this through the recent black metal tourney we did, lotta great gems in there.
The better of the two. Heavier, proggier, less poppy, and best of all.....less Spencer Sotelo singing.
Metalcore with a lot more hardcore and plenty of melody. A fun time all around.
In The Element....
(Fucking title's in russian) Tight depressive black metal from......you guessed it, Russia
Pissbro's project, brings the metalz
|48||Wati Heru and Kashaka|
Hep Kat told me to bump, bumped, thought it was tight, enjoyed
To Pimp a Butterfly
I just don't get it. Jammed a few times since it came out, just never made the same impression it apparently did on everyone else. King Kunta and a number of bangers, but too much material and just didn't get to the next level for me.
I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album By Earl Sweatshirt
Really depressing, monotoned rap but I dug it for whatever reason.
|51||We Are Harlot|
We Are Harlot
Semi modern rock, semi throwback 80s hair metal. Danny Worsnop (of Asking Alexandria fame) does have a really fitting voice and it's hookier than it has any right to be. Not mindblowing at all but not too bad.
|52||As It Is|
Never Happy, Ever After
The happiest, sunniest, most hook laden pop punk album to come out lately. Nothing out of the ordinary but a great summertime jam.
Bits and Pieces
BMdrummers music, good shit
Stoner, psychedelic doom from the doom tournament going on now.
i actually don't remember this at all but apparently it's some black metal/doom metal hybrid and I liked it.
|56||Veil of Maya|
A few duds, but the Veil sound is still there and the vocalist is really good. The clean singing is a nice addition.
|57||Haste the Day|
A great comeback. Bit inconsistent however and the sheer number of different vocalists used makes it disjointed.
|58||Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!|
Get Lost, Find Yourself
Fewer breakdowns, more pop punk. Pardon My French was better, but this is just a bit below it.
Growth Without End
Less Gorguts worship discordant death metal, more mathy shit but still really good.
Brutal as fuck deathcore worth any fan's time.
|61||The Ongoing Concept|
Not as good as Saloon but a great album. A couple of tracks were duds but a lot of standouts too. Concept is ace.
Their best yet. A few too many songs, but the first half is ace. The vocalist has really come into her own.
Their best album for sure. Still nowhere near the best band in pop punk but this is a definite good time.
A Visible Chill
User Pedrosomerandomnumbers (AKA Alex Newton) project. Awesome prog metal WITHOUT GUITARS WAT
...And The Lamps Expire
Sick atmospheric black metal EP
The Reject of Humanity
Some of the sickest, nastiest, heaviest deathcore ever
Amazing improvement on the actor turned singer's folk/acoustic EPs. Adding a full band, electric guitars, piano etc. was a great choice and the album is so full of passion. One of my favorites of the year. Only issue is with some inconsistent production issues that almost ruins one of the best tracks and some awkward vocals on another. Btw this guy plays fucking Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones. Let that sink in.
Söngvar elds og óreiðu
Icy ass modern black metal
|69||Stick To Your Guns|
Another hit for the metalcore/hardcore outfit. A lot more clean singing, but all the attitude is still there and the album hits hard.
|70||A Night in Texas|
The God Delusion
Some of the sickest, nastiest, heaviest deathcore ever 
Epic/atmospheric black metal that scratched the hell out of my Summoning/Caladan Brood itch.
They Became the Falling Ash
Sick depressive atmospheric black metal/funeral doom from DarkNoctus. One of the best bm records of the year.
Hellish greek black metal with some odd Behemoth (The Satanist in particular) vibes.
Another great record from the progressive black metal band. Not as good as Axioma but still a goddamn excellent album in its own right.
Deafheaven 2.0 frankly. If the whole album were like Golden Number, I would've rated much higher, but I still loved what I heard anyway.
Old school Ulver styled folk black metal. Kicks serious ass.
|77||Serenity In Murder|
The Highest Of Dystopia
Tight modern melodic death metal.
|78||Downfall of Nur|
Umbras de Barbagia
More atmospheric black metal (is it a trend with me yet?)
|79||While She Sleeps|
One of the better metalcore releases this year. Less piano than their debut, more gang chants and hardcore riffs. Kicks so much fucking ass. Not exactly original but I've yet to hear a metalcore band these days that sounds quite like them.
|80||Lost Salt Blood Purges|
The Voids We All Long For
Snoxs (OvDeath) album. really cool stuff, very eclectic in style. Not many of the genres explored are ones I frequent but I'm interested now.
Gateway to the Antisphere
Sick Lovecraftian death metal
|82||Cultes Des Ghoules|
The Rise of Lucifer
Amazing little release from one of my more recent favorites in modern black metal. Short and sweet as satanic pie.
|83||The Early November|
Didn't care for In Currents so it took me a bit to try this, but it turned out really well. Honestly surprised how much I liked this. Everything is just generally on point with Imbue.
|84||The Story So Far|
The Story So Far
Well it's more of the same but as far as this band's concerned I'm ok with that. So many sick hooks, the lyrics and instruments are still on point, though even I have to admit it's a bit too samey to warrant a higher rating.
|85||Make Them Suffer|
Inconsistent thanks to a few weak tracks, but both the usual symphonic deathcore songs they already did and the newer melodic/metalcoreish tracks work extremely well. One of the most passionate deathcore releases, and passionate isn't a word I usually use to describe deathcore. Twinklecore but good twinkelcore
|86||Four Year Strong|
Four Year Strong
A strong return to form after the slight downgrade in their last LP. So much fucking energy, though the production is a bit loud for my liking. Enemy of the World is better but not by much.
Another hit, band hasn't disappointed me yet. Really need to pay more attention to the storytelling, but musically everything strikes home.
Realm of Sacrifice
Post/atmospheric black metal. Not much to say, really awesome shit.
|89||August Burns Red|
Found in Far Away Places
A more mid tempo affair and the progressive/post rock/soft elements have been built on more. I think I'll take their last album over it, but it's still killer. The guest spot from Jeremy Mckinnon is killer.
|90||Thy Art Is Murder|
More death metal and doomy shit than Hate. A big, brutal behemoth of deathcore. atm I can't decide which album I prefer but it's close. (Btw user nocturnalize I shall review soon and life will be complete)
|91||The Slow Death|
Massive, beautiful funeral doom/death record. Third favorite of the year so far, second fave in metal. Just a huge and incredible record that I'd recommend to any metalhead.
Favorite in metal thus far. Twisted, dark, brutal, beautiful at times. Many things could be said, but basically it's incredible.
The Dreaming I
Another amazing atmospheric black metal album from this year. Super melodic and awesome yea
|94||Being As an Ocean|
Being As An Ocean
I fanboy over this band hard so it's not surprising that it's my favorite of the year so far. Read my review if you want my more in depth opinon. plz sput gods protect me from the withering shitstorm of insults ill probs get for this.
