| ||Shylmagoghnar Transience|
Unapologetically grand and desperately immaculate, Transience spares no expense in its long-winded attempt to send you on a journey that begs time, patience and imagination. Overwhelming? Absolutely, but how often do we get albums this large in scale that also warrant serious, contemplative thought while listening?
| ||Distant Dream Your Own Story|
Even more relaxed than its predecessor, Your Own Story favors the general mood and sound of post metal without completely subjecting itself to the genre's tendencies. Basically a collection of bedtime lullabies for rock and metal fans.
| ||Insomnium Since the Day It All Came Down|
Take present day Insomnium, add some girth and match that with fewer catchy hooks. Since the Day It All Came Down has some genuinely compelling moments that are held back by the prolonged stay that similarly plagued its predecessor. This, thankfully, holds up better and helps foster a healthy soil for the band's core sound.
| ||Amorphis Queen of Time|
Queen of Time largely follows in its predecessors footsteps, making the folk and orchestral elements feel even more integral to the music. Where most bands struggle to walk that fine line between folk and metal, Amorphis glide upon it with grace and finesse, resulting in an album that not only does its predecessor justice, but builds upon its already solid foundation to become something that may possibly edge over it.
| ||Dimmu Borgir Eonian|
Truly all over the place; and yet, it somehow ends up being the band's best album since Death Cult Armageddon.
| ||Kamelot The Shadow Theory|
It's a Kamelot album that isn't Karma, Epica or The Black Halo.
| ||The Spacelords Water Planet|
Imagine tasting a planet-wide supply of water with everything but your mouth and nose. That's Water Planet.
