Agalloch The Mantle
At the Drive-In Relationship of Command
David Brent Life on the Road
ISIS Panopticon
Kyuss Welcome to Sky Valley

The Dillinger Escape Plan could learn some lessons in mathcore from these guys.
Radiohead OK Computer
Radiohead The Bends
Radiohead OKNOTOK 1997-2017
Sleep Dopesmoker

4.5 superb
Candlemass From the 13th Sun
The spacey production and themes save this album from being just another Sabbath rip-off. Crushing space doom, anyone?
ISIS Oceanic

4.0 excellent
Messa Belfry
Monumentomb Ritual Exhumation
Smidley Smidley
Wtf is a 'Smidley'? Wtf did this even come from? It's the freshest indie release of the year.
Tribulation The Children of the Night
This album reminds us that metal can be grim and still catchy as hell at the same time. A headbanging romp of black metal-infused retro rock, the only let down being the lack of vocal variation.

3.5 great
Dreaming Dead Funeral Twilight
If Death made a black metal album and Chuck was a woman.
Elder (USA-MA) Reflections of a Floating World
Falls of Rauros Vigilance Perennial
Pallbearer Heartless

3.0 good
Black Tusk Pillars of Ash
Stolas Stolas
Someone's been listening to too much At the Drive In and The Mars Volta.
Vektor Terminal Redux

2.5 average
Darkest Hour Godless Prophets and The Migrant Flora
Opeth Sorceress
Opeth are trying too hard to revive a dead genre that no one cares about.

The lyrics are also hilariously edgy and cringeworthy:

I am a sinner and I worship evil
Blood is thinner but you will never know
Can you confess that you thrive in chaos?
You're a sorceress and your eye is on the lost

If this was 2006 then young edgelords would be pasting that into their MySpace bios.
Our Hollow, Our Home Hartsick
Overproduced, formulaic and predictable. Didn't everyone have enough of this saccharine bastard child of metalcore in the early 2000s?
Ulcerate Shrines of Paralysis
I listen to a lot of death metal and this just bores me. Endless pummeling and white noise,
nothing catchy or interesting. Its only merit is its impressive technicality.
