Malrun/Boil Ranked

Both are Danish metal bands. Boil specializing more in alt/prog metal, with earlier albums in the vein of Tool. Malrun being more of a mix between prog metal and metalcore. Only including the albums and/or EPs that had Jacob Loebner, the common link between the two bands, on vocals; Malrun has two releases after Two Thrones (an EP and an album) - but on first listen, vocals don't do much for me.
1Boil
aXiom


Boil (as a band) dissolved in September 2013, shortly (~5 days or so) after this album was released, due to "...how tough the music business is to balance with everything else...", and "...to a mix of unfulfilled artistic goals/rewards and various personal reasons...". Sad, as this was an incredibly diverse album - a bit of alt metal, some prog metal, some deathcore, etc. And a pretty big step up from the last Boil album.
2Malrun
Two Thrones


The pinnacle of Malrun - and amazingly, this lineup also imploded at the release of this album, with the band parting ways with Jacob Loebner in June 2014 due to "...incompatible interests in the band".
3Boil
A New Decay


My first foray into Boil. And a superb, consistent, alt metal album. Jacob's vocals are predominantly clean on this album, unlike aXiom and Malrun albums.
4Malrun
The Empty Frame


This is a similar album to Boil - A New Decay. For example, Jacob's vocals are predominantly clean - and the progressive metal tendancies take a stronger hold here. And this album is definitely a big step up over Beauty in Chaos. But doesn't quite surpass Boil - A New Decay.
5Malrun
Beauty in Chaos


A good album - but a bit more of a metalcore album, in comparison to follow-up Malrun releases. Has some stock, softer tracks weaved into the album that reduce the potency.
6Boil
Vessel


An honest start for a great alt metal band. Has a few excellent tracks.
7Malrun
Longest Road To Rome


A humble, early release. Similar to Malrun's Beyond EP (only heard on YouTube).
