January jams

This is just gonna be a top 10 of stuff I've listened to last month. There's been a more eclectic mix then usual (in part due to my discovery of post-punk and gothic) and I am certainly happy with that! I want to keep a nice balance of stuff I already love and stuff I would have never pictured myself listening to, so um, yeah here it is.
1Poison the Well
The Opposite of December

I've never headbanged so goddamn hard. This is one of the most energetic, visceral, and in its own sense- anthemic- albums I have heard. It's just fun, gut-punching metalcore. 4.7/5.

I've been a CunninLynguists fan for some time, but I just kept shoving this off for some while. Silly mistake, because this is abslutely smooth and blissful, which is a quality that I seem to love in hip-hop. 4.3/5.
The Moon Is a Dead World

Progressive emo was a title that certainly had me skeptical, but Gospel dashed my suspicions for sure. This is wild and eclectic and contains some absolutely amazing drumming that is incredilby intricate without detracting from the passion-filled wails and the fun, bouncy organ (this may be the first time i've ever enjoyed the usage of an organ). 4.5/5.

I think my review explained this album quite well but if you haven't checked it you should! This is an odd amalgmation of doom, black metal, and ambiance that is utterly petrifying and despaired. It's only 3 songs and around 50 minutes, so for those deterred by song lengths I would not recommend this. Otherwise this is a fantastic jam. 4.5/5.
5Aether Realm

Debut Wintersun worship that, in my opinion, slightly top it at points. Imagine the fun, wild riffs and shreds but with a more varied vocal department and a feature with that guy from Alestorm. 4.5/5.
6Dead Can Dance
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun

Absolutely wonderful neoclassic/darkwave/gothic/other genre that transports you into an olden age of knights and chivarly (and the black plague). It's beautiful and pristine, and yet almost a bit haunting. 4.6/5.
7Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains
Love Songs For The Apocalypse

Had every song been as good as Harmony Parking Lot, this could very well have been one of my favorite albums ever released. That said, it's heartfelt, drink until you ass out folk punk that is made for the sad loser in all of us. To every one who has every had a shattered dream, here is your jam. 4.4/5.
8Of Machines
As If Everything Was Held In Place

At any point this album feels lke it's going to shatter underneath the weight of its own energy (the same can be said about the 1st album on this list). If you are a fan of modern post hardcore this could definitely be your deal (apologies for my brief descriptions, if I haven't listen to an album extremely recently I tend to forget exact details haha). 4.6/5.
9Fields of the Nephilim
Mourning Sun

Dark, somewhat doomy gothic that has one of the iciest, desolate atmospheres I have come across. The album cover is a perfect depiction of what this sounds like. 4.4/5.
10Sabbat (JPN)
The Dwelling

One song, 60 minutes, all blackened thrash. How do they make it work? By the perfect incorporation of variety, creating a soundscape that ranges from nasty and gnarly to almost elegant. The vocals bite, the riffs thrash hard, and the acoustic guitar midway through is a perfect breath of fresh air before the riffs rip you back apart. There was a small section of vocals that were awkward but otherwise, this is bloody stellar. 4.2/5.
