Alt Metal/Prog Metal
This is very cool and bouncy metal, her vocals are so nice too!!
Have A Good Cult
Sharp left turn away from what they were doing on the previous albums but it's a vibe and very fun, title track is one of my favorite songs of the year.
These guys are heavy as fuck and tickle that dormant enjoyment of deathcore for me
Very chill EP akin to his Volume 0 demos, and stay tuned for another Kaizo entry further in
Hardcore Breaks/Scouse House/Jungle
More breaks more fun more jams, also what in the goddamn fuck in Scouse House lmao
Bleed the Dream
Poison the Wellcore
These guys wear the influence on their sleeves and I don't care, they rock
Where Myth Becomes Memory
They are back with another posty core banger, and while this doesn't have the highs of Time Will Die, I think it's more consistent and therefore better!
Hardcore Breaks/Drum and Bass
Slightly more vibey than Digimaiden and slightly has the edge over it for that reason
Out of Office
Deep House/Outsider House
Very solid and fun house jam, did a lot of coding at work with this on in the background powering me through

I am a Tears for Fears SIMP bro and this comeback album warmed my heart

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.
A Couple of Good Days
Deep House/Outsider House
Look at the kitty!
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
|18||Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas|
Cocoon for the Golden Future
The boys are BACK with what they do best, rapid pace trancecore!
This Bright and Beautiful World
Man the rollout for this was stupid, like 5 months lol. Really good guitarwork on this and Brent's vocals are rad as hell
When they go hard they go HARD, and the melodic moments are beautiful. Wish we could've heard more of that vocal variety in the final two minutes of the last song all over the album tho lol

Came outta nowhere like the day before 2022 ended lol, that's why I WAIT until the year is OVER to post these
|12||Oceans Ate Alaska|
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
Remember That You Will Die
Trap Prog/Have a Lot of Haters Who are Mad core
These guys are honestly so rad, loved a lot of the tracks on here and would love more without some questionable features. I wish my dad could've heard some of these tracks
The Death of Peace of Mind

To Only a Few at First
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 :[
