Devouring Radiant Light
Skeletonwitch opens up and lets their brand of thrash breathe a little (a lot) with extended song structures and proggy directions that take their sound to new directions. A refreshing listen in a discography that was growing stagnant.
Hopesfall really just came out of a decade plus long hiatus and quietly dropped AOTY on us like it's nothing. Arbiter sees Hopesfall firing on all cylinders, melding Magnetic North sized massive hooks with The Satellite Years-esque spacey atmosphere and heaviness.

The closest contemporary I can think of is Gates- Bloom & Breathe, an incredible album in its own right that Arbiter takes the formula of to dizzying ne
If you go see this band and do spin kicks I really hope that you get the shit kicked out of you. Tbh mentioning this unholy offspring of botch and dillinger with full of hell esque noise freakouts in the same sentence as that drivel is disrespectful. Album's stupid heavy and way above poser shit like Nails (I love Nails) and Harm's Way (Fuck Harm's Way)
Be More Kind
I'm super stoked to have studio cuts of Antacticans and Sonic Titan, and Giza Butler may be the best thing they've ever written. The Botanist has some weird post metal and even vaguely shoegazey vibes to it and I love it as a closer. Opener is fucking awesome, I read someone say its the sound of the Sleep engine roaring back to life after almost two decades. Perfect descriptor and perfect intro to the absolute banger that is Marijuanaut's Theme and really, the album as a whole.
