5.0 classic
7 Angels 7 Plagues Jhazmyne's Lullaby
My friends, "Jhazmyne's Lullaby" is undeniably the ultimate Metalcore record. More respected bands such as Botch and even Converge have released much more complex and larger masterpieces than this 7 Angels 7 Plagues album, but it is impressive the size base that this album gave to the genre. Everything is pure anger, discontent and a harsh feeling of hatred, but it closes with one of the most beautiful songs ever. It is difficult to comment on an album so influential that it deserved even a book for him to explain every second idealized.
A Wilhelm Scream Ruiner
The only band of punk rock music with such innovative and technical philosophy.
Agalloch The Mantle
Alcest Kodama
American Football American Football
So perfect and complete. It's not just the depressive and sentimental aspects, but rather how an album can arouse the feeling of being alive even though the focus is on the bad and realistic side of the world we live in. It may sound like a half-scraped astral chat, but every time i listen to this work of art, the more i understand the real meaning of it. Timeless.
Aphex Twin Drukqs
Arab Strap Philophobia
At the Drive-In Relationship of Command
At the Gates Slaughter of the Soul
It's hard to choose between "Heartwork" and "Slaughter of the Soul" when i try to establish the Melodic Death Metal greatest milestone. Carcass album came before, but in my view, At the Gates has absurdly hit on what the concept of style is and how it condenses everything into an album. Perfect in its essential and idealization "Slaughter of the Soul" has only one error: songs with a short duration.
Bane Give Blood
"Give Blood" is the most complete and perfect album in Hardcore history. Correct me if i'm wrong, but i've never heard a set of songs so intense and skilled from the genre. They work harmoniously delivering the real meaning and message of the songs. Everything works here, and it will always work. Bane will be missed, and that's the biggest example of that.
Batushka Litourgiya
Between the Buried and Me Colors
Black Sabbath Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath Paranoid
Classic and the wrost cover on the history of the genre.
Botch We Are the Romans
"We Are the Romans" is the most complete and influential album of the first wave of Metalcore. When the genre was still in its infancy, Botch has already arrived as a flyer, delivering to us such a clean and unforgiving work that seems to have been developed last year. I like absolutely everything on this record, from the sonority, to the lyrics and name of the songs that are really fantastic.
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
"The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me" is one of the best albums of contemporary music, and should not even have discussion about it. Many people follow the ideology of the impact of Brand New's work on music, just as many people criticize who really loves this album. There is no hype, the album is complete, fantastic and diverse and that's it. It does not take anything more to add here, just listen and appreciate what is perfect on this planet.
Brian Bennett Voyage (A Journey Into Discoid Funk)
Brutal Truth Need to Control
Need to Control is a landmark of the genre. The record marks the great amount of possibilites that a grindcore band has in their hands. The pattern is simple and the premise is the same used by other bands, but the songs are so well written and so creative that make the band win a huge status in the genre. Brutal Truth is a band who knows the real definition of deathgrind. Their best.
Buckethead Colma
Full of soul and emotion. Buckethead is also known for his absurd discography, and some really good records dissapear from the crowd. Every feeling is clear here. You can feel the hapiness, the sadness, the despair and even those existential thoughts about our insignificant life here. Timeless.
Burial Untrue
It's almost impossible to stablish this record in a word or in some explanations. Untrue is like walking around in a endless cold and lonely street. In the same way that the record have a soul, their expressions is morbid and incredibilly profund. Nothing stays the same after that.
Burzum Filosofem
Filosofem is the clear example that a Black Metal record didn't need to sound evil or satanic in every way to be part of the genre. The cover take you to the middle ages, the sound is cold and symphonical. Emblematic and with more impact than any Mayhem record.
Camel Mirage
Cigarettes After Sex Cigarettes After Sex
Citizen Youth
I don't think that's possible to me to describe this album in words and phrases. I fucking love all the songs and the composition in his entire. "Youth" trigger a pack full of emotions that reminds me of the best moments in my life. I have this as a present from my eternal and endless love and i'll this songs with me until the end.
City and Colour Sometimes
"Sometimes" is the best-known work from Dallas Green solo career, and the most underestimated, in my vision. It seems that a lot of people were bothered by the genre imposed by the musician, since he was known to be a vocalist of a Post-Hardcore band. "Sometimes" has a great sentimental weight, and for me, it already establishes itself as a classic of modern acoustic music. It's not that the melodies and lyrics are perfect, but it's the impact it makes on my sentimental every time i listen to it.
City of Caterpillar City of Caterpillar
I like to say that this record is the soundtrack of a really ill and disturbed mind who have to experience a lot of harsh moments in a short period of time. Even becoming a chaotic and depressive record, it helps a lot to struggle against some negative thoughts. A landmark in the genre and one of the best experiences that music delivers to us.
Converge You Fail Me Redux
"You Fail Me Redux" is simply the same masterpiece, only with a more flawless production. All the elements that bothered (almost none) in the original release, received a special treatment here. It is difficult to define more about this work, since everything that needs to be spoken, was already said in 2004. Perfection in the shape of noise.
Converge Jane Doe
What else can we add about the incredible and influential power of one of the best albums in the history of music? Every word will sound like other ratings, mingling with common sense and putting the record to the already established standard of "an album without words." That's why i'll hold back with a few words, only reinforcing that "Jane Doe" is the masterpiece of life, and certainly the most complete musical work you'll hear in life. That's it.
Counterparts The Difference Between Hell and Home
"The Difference Between Hell and Home" is my favorite Counterparts album. Melodic Hardcore, as well as the more contemporary Emo roots, work in harmony in what is arguably the best album of 2013. I have always had a very special relationship with the songs that are here, and it will always be that way.
Cryptopsy None So Vile
"None So Vile" is the definition of all that is most absurd in the history of music. Lord Worm's vocals are scary, the drums are visceral and the guitars are deafening. The album is perfect and keeps getting better with time. The cover matches the dark material and the darkness of the letters. Perfection.
Cynic Focus
It will always be a mystery that how they embraced and created a record like this in 1993.
Darkthrone Transilvanian Hunger
Darkthrone made me believe that hell is little the most freezing and lonely place to stay. Well, if the hell really exists, i presume.
David Bowie Blackstar
Dead Fish Sonho Médio
Dead Kennedys Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
"Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables" is one of the definitive classics in the history of Punk. This album popularized the band for great classics like "Holiday in Cambodia" and "California Uber Alles", songs that continue to sound with the same impact until today. Unlike bands like Sex Pistols, the reputation of the Dead Kennedys is not only by the media and image of their clothing, their music is also essential. Eternal and indispensable in the life of any individual who loves the genre.
Deafheaven Sunbather
Sunbather is so different, complex, exciting, colorful, somber and devastating that i really miss many words to describe how much i love this album. Shoegaze mixed with Black Metal seems like an unlikely combination, but it may be one of the most incredible in the music world. From songs that are Black Metal at its core, we have transitional instrumental songs and a lot of elements that were used by bands like My Bloody Valentine in the 80's. Incredible, i'm always speechless trying to describe this band.
Deafheaven New Bermuda
All the songs that Deafheaven has elaborated in their career have a clear sentimental value inside my emotional. "New Bermuda" is another masterpiece of a band already established for pioneering a style that many have criticized but which is spectacular and perfect in all its pillars. "Brought to the Water" is intense and with many variations between genres, "Luna" is a punch in the face of who does not consider Deafheaven a band with clear influences of Black Metal, and the rest of the album only completes its mastery. I love this record and this band, and nothing will make me change my opinion about the sound perfection of their work.
Death Human
"Human" definitely marks the name of Death in the scene not only in Death Metal, but also in Metal and Rock. Chuck Schuldiner is a pioneer in what he did, and certainly one of the best in that position. Always hiring different musicians for each album, the frontman could give different faces to his works. Focusing on achieving perfection, Chuck did his first complete success in "Human", a fact that was repeated three more times after that. Much is said about this album, and much still can be added, but to summarize, "Human" is a milestone in this world.
Death Symbolic
The first few months that i listened to "Human" and absorbed all its atmosphere, i always caught myself saying that i would never listen to anything more complex and perfect in Death Metal. Time passed, and Chuck was able to fool me with "Symbolic," which is much broader, more powerful, full of sound ability, and with a much more extensive and destructive depth. The song that opens is already jaw-dropping, a fact that continues to repeat itself to the end. It's very sad to know that the Metal world has not had one of its biggest names for 17 years, but at least we have his legacy to celebrate his life.
Death Grips The Money Store
This is frighteningly complex and chaotic. There was a time when i really found the sound of this band a complete waste of time, but i always realize how much I was wrong once. This musical aspect is even more somber, perverse and sinister than others that were actually made for it. Without words, Death Grips will always have a special place in the music world.
Deftones Around the Fur
"Around the Fur" is Nu-Metal's definitive album. Before Deftones ventured themselves into other styles creating their own identity, they used to be the best and most skilled band of the genre. Songs like "Lhabia", "Lotion", "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" are self-explanatory when this question is asked. Nu-Metal was never the same after this milestone.
Deftones Diamond Eyes
"Diamond Eyes" is all i always wanted in music. Deftones walked several roads on their journey into music, going to the confines of Nu Metal to the Experimental. It is difficult to name the band in only one genre, but it is undeniable to say that they are one of the greatest musical ensembles in history. Regarding the record, i like to highlight the malevolent ending of the first track and the incredible "You've Seen the Butcher" and "Beauty School".
Deftones White Pony
"White Pony" is a milestone not only in the band's discography, but also in the music industry. Few bands have reached the threshold where Deftones settled for many years. Everything is broadly perfect, complex, sexy and extraordinary in what is considered by far the definitive work of the band by the media and their fans. Criticize anything on this record is a mistake, but i'll justify my assessment with a statement: "Back to School (Mini Maggit)" is a disgrace, and a commercial option that looks dubious in many ways. A simple mistake that took the perfection out of the record.rEdit: 5,0.
Devourment Molesting the Decapitated
Slamming Death Metal is a style that is not for anyone. Even the lover of Death Metal and extreme music may find this style dubious and scarce. However, Devourment did in 1999, what no one else could do for the style. The album is perfect in its design and intent. The instruments are unique and the structures of the songs were well elaborated by the band. I think the style is kind of bizarre, to be honest, and i even tried to venture myself into some slam bands earlier this year, but I found it all very ridiculous. But "Molesting the Decapitated" may be the best and only record of the genre that i love to listen to.
Discordance Axis The Inalienable Dreamless
Untouchable and definitely the flawless record on the genre.
DJ Shadow Endtroducing.....
Dropdead 1st LP
One of my favorite hobbies is to seek out pioneer bands of heavier and extreme genres, listen to
them a few times and lock me in my room to reflect on their influence and impact. Besides being
great for research and self-knowledge, it is perfect for understanding the construction of unknown
genres. Along with Siege, Dropdead is one of the pioneering bands that mix Thrash elements with
Hardcore and other more absurd elements, giving birth to Powerviolence. In its first LP, the band
shows why they have their legacy, and how it has managed to shape a style so violent and
deafening. Milestone.
Elliott Smith Either/Or
"Either/Or" is definitely the best thing i've ever listened in my life. Every time i listen to it or comment with a friend of mine, it seems I'm opening up another way to absorb even more what I like and feel about the work of Elliott Smith. In this phase of my life, i can confirm that this musician is the greatest musical idol of my life, and everything i say to highlight what he has done for music and me in moments of desperation, will still be little. Here is the celebration of everything he did and continued doing. Perfection is little for this.
Elliott Smith Roman Candle
"Roman Candle" is the first and most underrated solo album by Elliott Smith. After leaving Heatmiser, a band of little success that had as its biggest star itself, Elliott began to show the world why he is the most complete songwriter of his generation. His first albums are perfect, and the debut is as bare and raw as possible. Elliott was always a great lyricist, and his story began to be written here. I am passionate about his music, and i can not see some studio album of him below the perfect rating (perhaps From Basement on the Hill by the fact that I did not listen often like the others).
Elliott Smith Elliott Smith
Elliott Smith is an artist who has always dismissed words and praise from me. His incredible ability to create songs, lyrics and melodies, always moved very softly with my emotional. What the musician presents here, is a collection of depressive, sad and at the same time sensorial songs to the point of opening the way for self interpretation. Practically the last fully "acoustic" record of his career, Elliott has always proved his instrumental quality, and has his legacy traced forever.
Elliott Smith Figure 8
"Figure 8" is the definitive work of Elliott Smith's career. I will explain why: From his acoustic beginning, to his own production in all the instruments like in "Either/Or", he was creating his identity until arriving at a point where he got together everything that he launched sublimely, creating thus a great masterpiece. Along with a band to support their genius, in addition to building perfect songs, he fit the songs perfectly into the album, as in the case of the passage from "Everything Reminds Me of Her" to "LA".
Elliott Smith From a Basement on the Hill
"From a Basement on the Hill" is the first posthumous record of one of the greatest artists of our generation. This release was not complete by Elliott, which gave a sadder and morbid tone to some songs. I feel very bad when i listen to the entire album, because on many occasions it seems that i felt what he felt from a distance. All this suffering and all the pain imposed on such perfect and incredible songs... cannot fit into any definition. In the end, "From a Basement on the Hill" is a great tribute and a almost perfect farewell. Goodbye, legend.
Elliott Smith XO
"XO" is Elliott Smith venturing into Pop and the mainstream, without leaving its origins aside nor the question of Folk that has always put him as the greatest musician of his generation. By making that decision, much was said, much criticism and contempt fell on him for trying to reach other audiences. But what happened is that he did it with mastery, showing the world again who he is. It is the reflection, that any alternative that he was to venture, would be another option of masterpiece within our playlists.
Elliott Smith New Moon
Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) What It Takes to Move Forward
The Emo music ages and shapes in so many ways and possibilities available in the world music. There are some bands who impress anger, bands who are most joyful and some folks who play their songs above a total sense of sadness and emptiness. It is here that "What It Takes to Move forward" fits in the most perfect way possible. Essential album in the life of anyone who values their own feelings. Flawless.
Frank Sinatra In The Wee Small Hours
Glassjaw Worship and Tribute
Gojira From Mars to Sirius
Unbelievably heavy and technical. The record is so good and complete that it gets stuck in your ear and you end up not even realizing the time is passing. All the elements used work so well, making Gojira walk from the progressive to the acoustic. I still have to venture myself into the discography of these guys, but this album is a bestial example of how you make heavy music.
Gospel The Moon Is a Dead World
GZA Liquid Swords
Herbie Hancock Head Hunters
Immolation Close to a World Below
"Close to a World Below" is a very brutal work that needs a lot of debate. I see Immolation as a very consecrated band, but it had their most respected lightning flash in other works. "Close to a World Below" shows the band's most satanic and brutal stage, from its sonic weight, lyrics and cover art that must have frightened many parents at the time of its release. An eternal milestone in the Death Metal genre, and a lesson in how to perform perfectly in a style that was in his best decade.
Insect Warfare World Extermination
"World Extermination" comes to be funny as good and spectacular as it is. Perfect record, with little flaws that don't bother at all. The drum lines are ABSURD, the best lines on Grindcore. The legacy is here, Insect Warfare will forever be one of the most incredible bands in extreme music with only one LP on their discography.
Isaac Hayes Hot Buttered Soul
"Hot Buttered Soul" is a triumph of a fantastic career of a musician who has always been very conscious and effective in what he produced and idealized. I love this record, and over time it has become my favorite of Isaac Hayes's discography. It would be humanly impossible not to consider a masterpiece an album that possessed a song like "Hyperbolicsyllabicseequedalymystic" complementing the entire orchestra imposed by this musical magician.
Jeff Buckley Grace
It took just one record for Jeff Buckley to become one of the greatest legends in the history of music. "Grace" has all the best that the musician had with him in his short walk through this life. His musical tones are perfect in every song, "Mojo Pin" is a masterpiece that opens such a fantastic album, that it's easy for me to mess up my claims. The song that have the same name as the album, is performed with sublime touch, in addition to the cover of "Hallelujah", who beats the original of Leonard Cohen in all the aspects. "Grace" is an essential record for all tastes and should be listened to at least once in a lifetime. It's a pity that such absurd geniuses as Jeff Buckey, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith have left us so early.
Jeremy Soule The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Soundtrack
A flawless game is made not only by their narrative, action, design and the charism of his characters. The soundtrack have to make company to the story in a act of certifing all the aspects the developers want to deliver. Skyrim do this with maestry. The best game i've played in the last ten years.

maudlin of the Well Bath
"Bath" is that record that is so good that it becomes difficult to detail it in comments and definitions. Toby Driver is a real visionary, and his work is available all around, just check to see how great a human being can be in the musical aspect. Avant-Garde with Progressive Metal, Grindcore notes with a bit of Metalcore and everything that contemplates Lo-Fi and Alternative Rock, represent what this album is for the music industry. Too bad maudlin of the Well does not get the attention it deserves (at least in my country).
Maybeshewill I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone
Mayhem De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
I listened to this masterpiece for the first time in 2014. At that time, what i used to hear from the band came from "Chimera" and from their reputation. I didn't like the style very much, so i put these type of music aside and went to listen to other genres. When I revisited Mayhem sound, i went straight to "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas", and my mind exploded. A pure work of evil, full of speed, technique and atmospheric effects that gives chills to the spine. Listening to this gives you the same feeling of smelling a rotten thing and getting lost inside a Norwegian forest. Perfect.
Megadeth Rust in Peace
MF DOOM Special Herbs: The Box Set
I will always have a relationship of love and respect with all the discography of MF DOOM. "Special Herbs: The Box Set" is the collection of all his songs and samples that have been used on other albums and other collaborative albums. It's amazing how much vision skill that this guy has inside the music world. His songs are gems that will remain in the history even if that only happens in the underground scene. I will always find it fantastic what this artist does, but only he can get me to sit in front of my computer and spend hours listening to an album that contains more than 80 songs, without complaining or blinking. Timeless.
Miles Davis Kind of Blue
Miles Davis Bitches Brew
Miles Davis In a Silent Way
Minutemen Double Nickels on the Dime
The definition of perfection. The blend of genres, the structure of the songs, the absurd amount of music, the art conception. Serious as a fucking heart attack.
Misery Signals Of Malice and the Magnum Heart
"Of Malice and the Magnum Heart" is a masterpiece within Metalcore, marking a period of transition that came from great bands, for the generic item that destroyed the genre. Everything has its construction perfectly, which establishes the Misery Signals as an absurd band within the genre. "Of Malice and the Magnum Heart" is that kind of album that you don't need to say too much now, since in recent years, everything that is exalted about them is not enough.
Misery Signals Controller
Miss May I Apologies Are for the Weak
Mobb Deep The Infamous

My Bloody Valentine Loveless
Nas Illmatic
Nasum Human 2.0
European Grindcore is really unique, always very well represented by bands like Napalm Death, Rotten Sound and Nasum. The latter, was able to release the best album of the history of the genre. "Human 2.0" is all the best that Grindcore can provide, with great weight, speed, intensity, harshness and moment of relief that seems intense in the same proportion. Perfection in the shape of noise.
Nick Drake Pink Moon
I have a great affection for this record, because it helped me in a moment of extreme sadness and harsh decisions in my life last year. I studied a lot about Nick Drake's career, listened to a lot of songs and the feeling i have is missing someone i don't know and who was gone a long time, long before i was born. "Pink Moon" is a milestone in Folk music and certainly one of the most beautiful and sincere pieces of music i've ever heard in my life. At the moment, i prefer to abstain from more words, since this album goes far beyond any conception and definition.
NOFX The Decline
Nosferatu D2 We're Gonna Walk Around This City...
What kind of definition can I use to describe "We're Gonna Walk Around This City With Our Headphones On To Block Out The Noise" beyond perfection? Timeless? Or maybe flawless?
Pig Destroyer Prowler in the Yard
"Prowler in the Yard" is much more than a definitive work in the Grindcore scene. I do not consider this work as the greatest achievement of the style, but the form of production and the violence imposed on both the cover art, the lyrics, and the album's introduction are largely original. I always like to revisit the sound from these folks, never leaving this beautiful piece aside. Garage Grindcore in its best shape and mold.

Repulsion Horrified
Grindcore is a genre that has always provided great classics, or sound disasters. In "Horrified" my ear has always caught a feeling of genuine essence, mixed with chaos and instrumental rot. Repulsion has a great legacy in the scenario with just one album, the one that is the most incredible and with one of the most crude and risquid productions of music. An eternal classic full of rage and will.
Ride Nowhere
I always feel so astonished when i hear Shoegaze. How can a style (when done well) be so perfect? How can a style awaken so many emotions within a human being? The fuse of the genre is something that i have always wanted to have witnessed and lived. "Nowhere" is yet another one of those albums that show how the style is broad and full of life. It may be impossible to surpass the perfection of "Loveless", but this material is practically flawless.
Rise Against Revolutions per Minute
Rivers of Nihil Where Owls Know My Name
I listened to "Where Owls Know My Name" in its entirety traveling in the middle of my own thinking. How can an album be so great and impressive in the midst of a lot of bands that keep betting on it? Rivers of Nihil is standing out for this, creating a masterpiece that will be recognized in the future as a watershed. With a considerable mix of genres, an impeccable production and even the presence of a saxophone, i ask myself, "How can we not give a perfect rating for this record?".
Rotten Sound Exit
"Exit" is all that Nasum always wanted to do early in his career, and that was only really completed in "Human 2.0". Rotten Sound always stood a few feets behind his felow mates until the fatality with Mieszko Talarczyk. After that, the band jumped on quality and managed to do some very consistent work in their discography. However, they will never get to the feet of the incredible quality created in "Exit". Powerful and widely gloomy, we can consider this work, the best of European Grindcore of the last 15 years.
Samiam Astray
Slayer Reign in Blood
Slint Spiderland
Spiritualized Lazer Guided Melodies
Sufjan Stevens Carrie and Lowell
Everything that is personal and sincere in the music world, is usually perfect. All the senses and human organs are connected to demonstrate the real face of the feeling of who writes the songs and their lyrics. Sufjan Stevens is incredible, i have always heard of the band but i snub for a while, more for lack of interest than for lack of will. How stupid i am to take so long to listen to such a genuine and perfectly sentimental piece. I prefer not to enter into the lyrics, because it is heavy stuff and must be felt rather than anything.
Sunny Day Real Estate Diary
Sincere, complex and subjective in the eyes of the emotional and sentimental aspects. Few albums represent such emotions as "Diary". The instrumentation is more than interwoven, creating a sound that resembles the cover of the disc. Impossible to feel other thing than sadness to see the puppets and the light of the sun in the art of the album. The real meaning of Emo was never the same after the impact of this album in the music world.
Sweet Trip Velocity : Design : Comfort
Would you think it strange if i said that Shoegaze does better with electronic music than with Rock and Emo? Well, it may sound like a misleading or generalizing judgment, but it actually happens in "Velocity: Design: Comfort". Sweet Trip is already visionary by its creation, although it is despised by joining fields that do not coexist. With an absurd amount of masterpieces and very well-crafted and structured songs, "Velocity: Design: Comfort" is all you need, even if you have not even thought of researching such a joint.
Terrorizer World Downfall
What makes an album gain a status of classic? What are the elements and tools that add such perfect musicality that it continues to have the same impact as it did 30 years ago? Mix these questions, take a few minutes to think and at the same time listen to "World Downfall". The definitive milestone of Grindcore music.
The Antlers Hospice
"Hospice" is scary, haunting, complex, somber and with a vastly devastating atmosphere. Few records have made such a big impact on me as this, who is definitely the best work of the band. With long, well written songs, and no hurry to really deliver what they really mean by lyrics, The Antlers leaves that legacy both in music and in my life in difficult times.
The Axis of Perdition Deleted Scenes From Transition Hospital
"Deleted Scenes From Transition Hospital" sounds like the worst and most putrid dream i've ever had in my life. The inspiration seems to come from the darkest moments of Silent Hill, marrying with a sense of being trapped in a haunted japanese hospital. Listening at night alone at home is an appetizer for those who do not know what the feeling of fear really is. Industrial Metal when mixed with Black Metal results in this, a musical piece that gives shivers down to the devil.
The Dillinger Escape Plan Calculating Infinity
The Flashbulb Soundtrack to a Vacant Life
What can i say of a work as dense and at the same time as simple as "Soundtrack to a Vacant Life"? Flashbulb is a very skilled artist, and i really refrain myself from any definition to establish this album in my life. I always use these songs for moments of reflection, study and reading within my ideological field, and i will always be very grateful for the existence of this album.
The Weeknd House of Balloons
Thrice The Illusion of Safety
"The Illusion of Safety" was one of the first albums i listened to as a Sputnik recommendation, even though i've known Thrice since the days of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. This album is perfect, really intense and with the best combination of songs from the band's discography. It may not be the best record, or even underestimated by some issues that is celebrated. But in my conception, i can't even find a mistake here. Perfection is little.

Touche Amore Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me
Perfect in every way and incredibly immersive. This record is a great nostalgia for me of great years that i had in my life and that today i miss so fucking much. It's the old story that i was very happy and did not know that and now i have only memories left. Thanks for that, Touche Amore.
Ulver Shadows of the Sun
Underoath They're Only Chasing Safety
"They're Only Chasing Safety" is one of the best things i've ever heard in my life, and i will never really care about criticism, even if some are constructive. Underoath is a very conceptual band, but it seems that it was right here that they managed to give a life of their own to their work. I discovered the sound of the band when i met the love of my life in 2014, so i'm suspicious to always release several compliments for their work that accompany me on this journey of life.
Underworld Second Toughest in the Infants
"Second Toughest in the Infants" is that record that you already listen to it knowing the legacy and influence within a genre, just waiting for the songs to grow significantly inside you. Everything is amply perfect here, but it seems that the idea of finishing the album with "Stagger" was not the most ideal. The first two tracks are absurd and ample works, and closing with that song does not complete the circle, so to speak.
Uyama Hiroto Freeform Jazz
So abysmal, so impressive, so amazing. "Freeform Jazz" is one of the most complete jazz works I've heard in recent years. I'm a suspect to talk, since I'm a big fan of the style. But damn, how amazing and astral that this album is for me is even hard to put into words.
Willie Nelson Red Headed Stranger
I have little knowledge about Country music, but in a few years of life i can already put "Red Headed Stranger" among the most complete albums of the genre. Willie Nelson is well known for several aspects, but his music has been condensed into a very large discography. Even so, many good things can be taken from there. The pity is that the music could not get close to the heyday it reached at the time of the "Red Headed Stranger", but at least, what remains for us is the legacy of a genre that has practically faded.

The perfect Grindcore album doesn't need to be Horrified, World Downfall, Exit, The Inalienable Dreamless or Scum/From Enslavement to Obliteration. Every decade has a flawless album of the genre. Dirge is everything we need, is fucking heavy, chaotic in all aspects e incredibly relentless like being slaughtered by a chainsaw. And yeah, Singapore.

A.A.L. (Against All Logic) 2012-2017
Fantastic, sublime, abysmal, transcendental and philanthropic. Another record that i listened to today without seeing the genre and without having any previous expectations. House music, like the whole immersive universe of electronic music rocked me in a very intriguing way in recent months. I've always been against electronic music for not really consuming the content, but over time i've been feeling what's really appreciated in this type of music. Classic.

Alcest Écailles De Lune
I feel that Alcest will become one of my favorite bands in a short period of time, if not end up becoming the best and most complete. "Kodama" was my first adventure with this fantastic band, and i will never forget the beautiful feelings that came into my pores as i listened to each track with pure attention. In the case of "Ecailles De Lune", these feelings were repeated, but in a more beautiful and comprehensive way. It's hard to define what i really feel when listening to something as perfect as an album like that. It will age well as time goes by.

All The Luck In The World A Blind Arcade
Incredibly good and surprisingly sincere. The songs and lyrics stand out forming a beautiful piece of art from a unknown band. A launch so unique and diverse in its simplicity, deserves all the prominence. It is worth listening several times until you get tired. And how absurd is this cover... damn, I fell in love with the design at first sight few days ago.
Ancestors Suspended in Reflections
Anna von Hausswolff Dead Magic
Brilliant and scary. Anna Von Hausswolff voice is really absurd, showing a somber air to her songs that have distorted atmospheres of a cruel reality. A great and hauting year for music so far.

Autechre Tri Repetae
I'm very lay about electronic music and all its aspects, from IDM, Minimal, Drone, Techno and so on. I have created a great appreciation for Autechre, much for its authenticity and widely visionary and strange conception. "Tri Repetae" is what i most listened to, and from what i see, the most respected from them. I had given a full rating for this work, but over time it has been dropping a lot in my concept. I don't know how to explain it, but maybe it's my own block to that kind of genre. Anyway, "Tri Repetae" is very interesting and deserves to be listened countless times.
AZ Doe or Die
Bad Religion Against the Grain
With an always fine and quality sound, Bad Religion hit again with "Against the Grain". Responsible for being a constant influence of many bands of the genre, these folks always gave reasons for their status. In the album, we see classics like Against the Grain, Modern Man and 21st Century (Digital Boy) never grow old. Greg Graffin's lyrics have always been a sight to behold. No wonder Bad Religion is the biggest and best known band of the style.
Barely Civil We Can Live Here Forever
"We Can Live Here Forever" is a big surprise of a band that is still in its first steps in music. The Emo music is very immersive and complex by its terms and feelings, and it seems to me that the band already got it right in the first time. Good job, folks.
Behemoth The Satanist
I like to quote "The Satanist" as the first album i discovered in 2014 here at Sputnik. Over time, this was the album that really opened up my vision for Black Metal and for more extreme bands, just as Sputnik got me into worlds that i didn't even know the existence. The definition of Blackened Death Metal really started with Behemoth, and today they do it as if no one else could make it with the same impact. The songs are well-produced, and the context is set aside for the absorption of other aspects. Always good to see the Behemoth in shape.
Behemoth Demigod
Behold... The Arctopus Skullgrid
Belvedere Fast Forward Eats the Tape
"Fast Forward Eats the Tape" is the most complete and adjoining work from Belvedere. In addition to Punk Rock and other elements of Hardcore that were being added in their sonority, the band dated with the Jazz and with other aspects that shaped the identity of the record. I love almost everything these guys have done for the genre, and i'm sad to see that even with many years of career, the attention they get is shabby.
Bjork Vulnicura
Black Flag Damaged
One of the most influential and impactful albums of Hardcore Punk history. Black Flag popularized many aspects of the genre and filled some gaps that transformed the style into a manifesto of rage and "go against" the politics and social problems that already existed in large numbers in the 1980s. An essential and accessible album for any type of listener.
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Blood Incantation Starspawn
Blood Incantation is really amazing, going against much of what i've been looking around these past weeks. "Starspawn" is much more of a malevolent symphony than a record that brings together songs composed by the band. Here you find a beautiful differentiated option that looks just as old school as this interesting space-themed Death Metal footprint.
Boards of Canada Music Has the Right to Children
"Music Has the Right to Children" has the well-known legacy for truly shaping what we know about ambient music today. Electronic music has come a long way since the late '70s, and found its greatest booms in the 90s, especially with band like Underworld, Boards of Canada and Autechre. The interesting thing is that every time i listen to "Music Has the Right to Children," it seems like the songs are getting a lot deeper meaning, and that's pretty cool.
Bon Iver 22, A Million
Boris Dear
Incredible, intense, wonderful and at the same time cold, lifeless and utterly desolate. My first experience with Boris music is the best possible in this moment. The sound of damnation and the feeling of being faced with the end of times is intense in this album. All aspects are well harmonized and there is no need to use more weight in the instruments sonority. This is very noticeable on the disc which is just not perfect for reasons i can not explain in words.
Brand New Science Fiction
Brutal Truth Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses
"Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses" is a milestone that truly details the mix of Death Metal with Grindcore. Deathgrind, when well executed, brings such a heavyweight compelling product as the first release of Brutal Truth. Before even just being a Grindcore band, they made this manifesto that criticizes a lot and that is already heavy on their cover art. Maybe this is the best album of the genre, i can't think in another Deathgrind record that reaches this type of magnitude.
Brutus (BE) Nest
Buckethead Electric Tears
Buckethead is an artist to be studied. All his genius and musical abilities were never doubts to those who know much of his solo works and some of his collaborations. The absurd discography of the musician must be disposable at some points, but this is not always the case. When Buckethead plays with his heart and soul, further boosted by some personal drama and strong feelings of love that he has for his family and friends, we can be sure that is a masterpiece in progress. Just as he built two pike's in honor of his parents, and the absurd "Colma" (his best work), "Eletric Tears" is one of the most beautiful and fantastic sound pieces you'll hear in life.

Cannibal Corpse The Bleeding
I'm not and will never be a fan of Chris Barnes work in Death Metal, but i can't be a hypocrite to claim that he did nothing in his time as frontman of Cannibal Corpse. With only four LP's on his resume, he reached his peak in "The Bleeding". But it was not only him, the band was in harmony, creating songs that are still established as absolute classics of the genre. In the end "The Bleeding" is an lesson in extreme music, and perhaps the best album the band has ever done.
Carcass Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious
Carcass is a rare type of band that was able to establish their name in Grindcore and later in Death Metal, fact that was repeated by Napalm Death, but not in the same quality and intensity. "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious" is a malevolent symphony about nefarious themes and perverse ideologies on our planet. The riffs are incredible, presenting themselves as a great lesson of how to build a heavy song. I'm not much a big fan of the cover art and i think there might be more songs on the album, but who am i to complain about an almost perfect album?

Conjurer (UK) Mire
"Mire" took me by surprise in one day that i didn't expect to hear something so genuine. Inspired by many genres, Conjurer was able to put together in one record, seven songs that travel through various aspects of heavy music. The Doom aspect is characteristic, just as Post-Rock takes care of the atmosphere and identity of the work. A full and very diverse dish, with the only fault of containing only a few songs.
Converge All We Love We Leave Behind
"All We Love We Leave Behind" looks like a road map for a scientific work, which has the steps followed in advance and which shows a much better final work than expected. Converge has reached a plateau in recent years that anything they are launching have great expectation among it. The penultimate album of their discography was not different, being a modern Hardcore classic in all the possible aspects.
Converge Axe to Fall
"Axe to Fall" is thunderous, and certainly Converge's work that i love to listen to almost every week, even more than "Jane Doe". As usual, the first tracks are like a punch in the face, "Reap What You Sow" and "Dark House" are intense and harsh. As the songs form their identity, the band makes room for sounds that mix with Doom and Sludge, which has always worked and will always work. An eternal classic in my musical life.
Converge Jane Live
Counterparts You're Not You Anymore
"You're Not You Anymore" is a surprise coming from a band that never disappoints. With a discography that borders on perfection, and a sonority that is clearly improving over time, Counterparts is certainly the best band of the genre nowadays. In a style so condensed and full of bands that insist on the same standard concept, the young band can say that now is living their times of boom.
Cult of Luna The Beyond
Cult of Luna Salvation
Cult of Luna Somewhere Along the Highway
Cursed II
Everything in this album is superb. The art concept give chills on the spine, the harmony on the instruments is awesome and the atmosphere have a life on his own. Timeless.
Cursive The Ugly Organ
"The Ugly Organ" is unique. The sound is innovative and brings a bag of instruments and vertences of sounds that is incredible. A huge carnival of colors and feelings comes to the heart as you listen to this. Beautiful record and wonderful concept.
Cursive Domestica
I feel completely astonished at what i've heard from Cursive's discography lately. "Domestica" is certainly the best thing i've heard in a week, putting up even from "The Ugly Organ". Post-Hardcore worked with elements of the Indie, sonorities that mix moments of happiness with shouts of anger and exhaustion. Amazing how complex this work of art is already for my life. Until the end of the year it will become one of my favorite albums.
猫 シ Corp Good Morning America
Darkthrone Panzerfaust
"Panzerfaust" is one of the most genuine works in Norwegian Black Metal. Everything seems so perfectly embedded here, it seems ironic to see that this record does not have the recognition it deserves. All the weight, the guttural structures and the sound quality are united with the vile atmosphere. Looking at the cover art, you get the feeling of what your body will take in the moment you listen to a masterpiece like that.

Deafheaven Roads to Judah
"Roads to Judah" is the beginning of something really fantastic. At the time of the release, much was said about the quality of the band, and all the hype that many considered unnecessary for a band until unknown at the beginning of the decade. "Roads to Judah" is the band's integration on the stage, the consolidation of their sound, and the gateway to other fantastic things that have followed. Is there anything else that can be added within the quality of this band? Much that can be said, is still too little.
Deafheaven Ordinary Corrupt Human Love
Death Individual Thought Patterns

Defeater Empty Days and Sleepless Nights
"Empty Days and Sleepless Nights" is a milestone that shows the true quality and productive capacity of Defeater at its launch. Being easily one of the best albums in the history of Modern Hardcore, it's a shame that this band has only fallen in all respects nowadays. But back to the record, the first part is fantastic and complete, the acoustic songs are a good complement. However, even if these are average, they have no identity of their own, showing that it would not be a good way to venture. Other than that, the album is not perfect for details.
Deftones Saturday Night Wrist
"Saturday Night Wrist" is another record that shows how incredible good is Deftones, and how this band has a legacy that goes beyond just one genre. Being totally progressive compared to its predecessors, the record does not fail in any concept, being fun to listen countless times. All the hype created over this band is necessary and well justified.
Deicide Once Upon the Cross
"Once Upon the Cross" is definitely the best work in Deicide's history, nor does the debut reach the feet of the obscurities and violence of this album. The cover is fantastic and shocking, especially for the time of release. I always wonder about the media reception if the original cover had been released instead of censored. Vile.
Delta Sleep Ghost City
Demolition Hammer Epidemic of Violence
"Epidemic of Violence" is everything... but everything that Thrash Metal is and is conceptualized as a genre. Bands of the 'Big 4' have never been able to arrive in a mystical and violent place as Demolition Hammer arrived. In my country, if you talk about Thrash, everyone speaks the best known, and the feeling that is left is that of injustice. In a short time of life, i see that the best bands of the genre are the least listened and most overlooked. After all, what is "Master of Puppets" near "Epidemic of Violence"?

Entombed Left Hand Path
Entombed is among the greatest of the genre, but this is largely due to their great masterpiece, "Left Hand Path". The album begins with a desperate cry that continues to the rapid and voracious sound of the drums. The design, originality and dexterity are there, enough more songs to make "Left Hand Path" one of the best Death Metal albums in history. The pity is that maybe it's the only good one of the band's discography. But comparing is cowardice.
Erik Satie Gymnopédies
Everyone Everywhere Everyone Everywhere
"Everyone Everywhere" is an essential Emo album and i feel guilty for never having heard of it. I felt strange feelings throughout the album and I had the feeling of an almost perfect work of sentimental music. It is worth listening to it as many times as it takes.

Fallujah The Flesh Prevails
"The Flesh Prevails" is one of the most incredible progressive pieces i've ever heard in my life. In the old days i had the dubious impression that Fallujah was just another forgettable band that adds nothing to the genre. Disregarding this preconception i had with the band, i describe in my own words that i am more than impressed. Everything is amply perfect here, from the production, the instrumental, the design of the songs and the cover art. One or another song made me not give a perfect rating.
Fat Freddy's Drop Based on a True Story
Fleet Foxes Crack-Up

Flying Lotus You're Dead!
It's quite impossible to really describe the complexity of Flying Lotus's work. I've been listening to "You're Dead!" since its launch in 2014 and i never get tired of this abysmal work. Everything that goes from Jazz, Blues, Hip-Hop and even Alternative Rock turns gold in the hand of one of the greatest and best artists of our generation. Superb.
Frank Ocean channel ORANGE
"channel ORANGE" is a record that has been with me since its release, and this occured because it convinced me that Soul music is one of the most fantastic yet, especially if you have some cracks in Hip-Hop. I don't think i even need to get into the merits of talking about Frank Ocean, because his impact and sound quality is in every corner. "channel ORANGE" is actually his best work, more complete than "Blonde" and with a much deeper legacy.

Gaza I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die
It's been a week i've been listening tirelessly to this beautiful album called "I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die". It's amazing how such a perverse piece of music was released in 2006 and remains current, even pioneering the catastrophic strand of Chaotic Hardcore. Gaza is well-regarded in what it does, but "I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die" is truly incredible in everything from its strong opening, the female vocal opening to an obscure improvisation. The rest of the album comes out like a lesson in the midst of darkness.
Ghostface Killah Supreme Clientele
Gojira The Way of All Flesh
Gorguts The Erosion of Sanity
"The Erosion of Sanity" is a much more progressive and technical footprint of Gorguts within its conception of Death Metal. The band has always been very effective at what they produced, and here they almost hit the sonic ecstasy. Many consider this feat to be only idealized in "Obscura", but the reality is that all the success that the band has always had, comes from a well aware work from the beginning of their trajectory.
GridLink Amber Gray
"Amber Gray" is another example that shows that Jon Chang is one of Grindcore's most powerful and ubiquitous names. The songs are explosive, ruthless and full of anger and hatred. The production leaves a little to be desired at times, making the disc not perfect for details. But nothing else takes away the brilliance of a band as fantastic and folk as Gridlink.
Haley Heynderickx I Need to Start a Garden
"I Need to Start the Garden" is incredible, sad, and sovereign over a range of Indie Folk bands. Being Haley Heynderickx's first LP, the rest of me is giving every possible applause for her powerful voice, and the totally intelligent structure she gave in her songs. We can already expect great songs and superb albums coming from her.

Hiromi Spiral
Homeshake Fresh Air
Homeshake is incredible, being the kind of strand of both Shoegaze, Dream Pop and Lo-Fi that works for any other genre that uses fantasy as a backdrop. "Fresh Air" is very complete, fun, gentle and relaxing. Great for listening at times of reading and traveling, Homeshake makes you enter a mystical and diverse world, pulling you up and down with respect to your emotions. An album to be felt and absorbed, much more than a regular album in your routine.
Hop Along Bark Your Head Off, Dog
"Bark Your Head Off, Dog" is one of the most diverse indie-related works i've ever heard. There is a sense of mutual contribution between all the folks. The vocalist is singing with the soul, the instruments follow a line being at the same time simple and innovative. In the end, Hop Along is a band that deserves a little more attention, always coming up with complete and enjoyable works.
Hopesfall Arbiter
Immortal Sons of Northern Darkness
"Sons of Northern Darkness" is incredible and almost perfect. As i mentioned earlier, Immortal is a band that has refrained from all controversy, and has joined forces to make quality music. I don't think there's a really bad record in their discography, but there are some works like "Sons of Northern Darkness" that really surpass the good and evil they are.r
Incubus S.C.I.E.N.C.E.
Isaac Hayes ...To Be Continued
Isaac Hayes Black Moses
It makes me very sad to see how Isaac Hayes is underestimated nowadays. Few speak of his influence and of his innovative samples that still illustrate songs of great artists. Portishead's most famous song comes from a melody from this album, which is certainly the most complete of the musician's career. With an incredible one-and-a-half hour "Black Moses" is all that Soul music has always been and always will be, essential in the eyes of other genres and rich by its origin. Isaac Hayes is gone, but all his legacy will be here to be celebrated.
Isaac Hayes Shaft
One of the most underrated and wronged artists in music. "Shaft" is the soundtrack to an ok action movie from the 70's that earned the Oscar for best track for Isaac Hayes. He was the first black person in history to receive an Oscar. Hayes's entire discography is practically flawless and it's blasphemous that he is reminded only by the voice of the Chef in South Park. There are things that have no explanation and one of them is how something so masterful did not receive and still does not receive the attention that deserves.
John Coltrane Giant Steps
Johnny Cash American IV: The Man Comes Around
Joshua Fit For Battle To Bring Our Own End
JPEGMAFIA Veteran
Totally immersive and original. JPEGMANIA has built an album that runs away from the ordinary presenting itself as a set of songs beyond of its time. Each song has its timbre and its footprint, which diversifies the work in an elegant way. The quote: "Bitch imma SMOKE" (Mortal Kombat options menu) is absurdly cool.
Judas Priest Painkiller

King Geedorah Take Me to Your Leader
"Take Me to Your Leader" is MF DOOM's work that features the best samples and melodies. Sometimes i don't understand why people detest this album so much, if it really is what MF DOOM has always been and even a little better. All the influences of the cultural market and what he always liked, was mixed to create this masterpiece that has not left my head since 2013. Just give one more listen to absorb this, because it's not possible that many people consider this his worst job (not counting their collaborative albums).
Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat An Interlude to the Outermost
It's not just the name of the band that is strange, unique and really funny (by the context of course), the music also follows the same path. Ample and diverse "An Interlude to the Outermost" is a class lesson in Folk and Indie Folk that expands as the songs are passing. The string of "You Will Reap a Whirlwind" to "Beyond the Tanarian Hills" consists of 18 minutes of a confusing, abysmal and transcendental musical limbo. A beautiful discovery, a incredible band, an almost perfect album.
Lagwagon Resolve
"Resolve" is a very fantastic tribute, coming from a very emotional band with one of the best musicians of the genre. Joey Cape has always been great as a frontman and as an acoustic musician, but when it comes to emotion in Punk Rock, he's the biggest name. "Heartbreaking Music" is the best song made by the band, and this was in the middle of a period of mourning and sadness, which says a lot about the creation of great musical works.

Mac DeMarco Salad Days
I was introduced to the sound of Mac DeMarco in 2013, but at the time i did not pay much attention. The years went by and I started to go through some of his albums to see if i could understand the style. In 2016, I spent a few weeks listening and appreciating what to me is the best record in Lo-Fi's recent history. Listening to the sound of DeMarco is the same as being always on vacation, lying in a net with no worries and positive aspirations for the future. "Salad Days" is certainly that kind of record that will always make me feel in a good mood and will continue to do it because there is such a good and unique message here.
Machine Head The Blackening

Mastodon Once More 'Round the Sun
Mastodon's most accessible, clean and well-produced album is also the most commercial. But this is not bad news. Usually, when bands try to get out of the underground to reach other audiences, the result is almost always a drop in quality and significant loss of longtime fans. But in "Once More 'Round the Sun", the band managed to build an album so impeccable and contagious, showing that it is possible to become a band that "sells out" without losing its sonority.

MGMT Little Dark Age
We're halfway through february yet and "Little Dark Age" is already one of the best albums of the year for me. Colorful, expansive and completely contagious, MGMT's latest release is one of the best pieces of music i've ever heard. The mixture of feelings and genres marries well with the inspiration of all the members. It will not be the best album of the year, but it will be on several end-of-year lists.
Mick Gordon Doom
Mineral The Power of Failing
I am not a religious guy, but when i listen to pieces of music like "The Power of Failing", i totally leave my beliefs aside and sit to enjot the quality of that music. Almost everything is perfect here, in an album that can be considered one of the greatest emotive classics of music. Bands like Mineral and Penfold drew my attention in the best way that it's possible. The second wave is amazing, but i also need to venture into the first wave of emo music, and i'm sure i will not regret it.
Modest Mouse Good News for People Who Love Bad News
"Good News for People Who Love Bad News" has such a deep composition line that the size of the sound impact becomes abysmal. It may seem exaggerated, but what stands out in this work is the simplicity and state of art imposed by Modest Mouse. Indie Rock can be much more than the commercial aspect or the most hipster fashions, so to speak, and this band has always proved this in the most perfect way, or at least, bordering on perfection.
Mount Eerie Now Only
The way the story is told and built, in songs of deep nd melancholic conceptions, border on human sentimental perfection. Mount Eerie is a fantastic project, and Phil Elverum is a musician who is leaving an increasingly consistent and complete legacy. I don't know what to say to add more arguments and pillars that can support my reasoning, i just retreat to feel.
Mount Eerie A Crow Looked At Me
Nails Abandon All Life
Chaotic in the essence and conception. A pure and evil lesson of how you make a nearly perfect Powerviolence record. Nails will be for years the greatest name in Powerviolence recent history. Theis discography is fucking relentless, presenting us a great amount of pure rage tracks that gives us some of the most violent punchs on ours ears. Pure gold stuff right here.
Nao ao Futebol Moderno Vida Que Segue
Napalm Death From Enslavement to Obliteration
A huge step forward in comparisson with Scum. The concept is the same but the lyrics and the impact of the grind/doom songs are harmonic and violent. Napalm Death is still out there, but the definition of the genre is on the first steps. A timeless album before the band started to put some Death Metal albums on their discography, which are fucking good too.
Napalm Death The Peel Sessions
If you're a fan of the band and normally listen to all their stuff (including early Grindcore times), this is an essential record. Working as a compilation of songs from the first records, "The Peel Sessions" stands out for the fact that all songs have been re-recorded. With that, they are faster and with a better production, which is usually done in live albums. One of the most omniscient and forgotten recordings of heavy music.
Necrophobic The Nocturnal Silence
Niagara Niagara
Nick Drake Bryter Layter
Night Verses From the Gallery of Sleep
Nile Annihilation of the Wicked
"Annihilation of the Wicked" is the greatest technical achievement in the history of Death Metal. The incredible abundance of riffs and blast beats, allied with the incredible sound quality and technique of all members, transform not only the disc but also the band as a unique piece in music. Even so, some aspects such as the Egyptian theme become saturated and difficult to listen to the end. But it's sure to say, that this is definitely the best work of the band.
Nils Frahm All Melody
An incredible work of art. Nils Frahm presents his music as a painting exhibited in an museum, with securities and glasses implying any human contact. His compositions are impeccable and comprehensive. The piece in its complexity, shows how the world of classical music can be improved in the hands of skilled and competent musicians. It is through these moments that the whole effort and transition of music is worth over the centuries.
Nirvana MTV Unplugged in New York
Norma Jean Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child
"Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child" is a very interesting bet on Norma Jean's discography. They have always been well-qualified in what they did, always delivering good songs, but when we see a band that bets on creating a 16-minute Metalcore song, it's because they want something more in their career. Even being a controversial option, it worked and continues to work for other bands that bet on the same model.
Oddisee The Iceberg
Opeth Morningrise
Orchid Gatefold
"Gatefold" is such a conscious intensity that it creates his own philosophy of how the music should be viewed. Screamo, when mixed with Emo, hardly presents itself as a failed work. Orchid is renowned for this, and will always be remembered being one of the most sincere manifestations of the genre.
Pestilence Consuming Impulse
My friends, that's how you do a pretty perfect Death Metal album. Pestilence knew how to do this kind of music once. "Consuming Impulse" is depressing, fast and harmonious, without forgetting to mention everyone's involvement in the band. Note: the cover of this disc is really spectacular and unique on the genre.
Phoebe Bridgers Stranger In The Alps
Pianos Become the Teeth Old Pride
"Old Pride" is the album that totally shaped the Emo/Screamo character of the last decade. All the elements that have been chosen to shape this work are still present in songs from other bands, but you can see that before them this didn't exist the way it is. Pianos Become the Teeth is a very interesting band, and i really enjoy revisiting them, both to compare with the current scenario, and to resurface a sense of nostalgia in myself.
Pig Destroyer Terrifyer
"Terrifyer" is another sure shot of Pig Destroyer's almost perfect discography. The somberness mixed with the aggressiveness and moments that mix it with Melodic Hardcore makes this record one of the best and most consistent of the genre.r
Propagandhi Failed States
Protest the Hero Fortress
In his early works, Protest the Hero has managed to catch a lot of peopla by surprise with his ample and innovative works with weight, melody and more that can be found in several styles. "Kezia" already existed, so i believe the anxiety and expectation was very high when "Fortress" came out. Without words for the size of this work, which at the same time is complex and skillful, it shows itself directly at the point that it wants to achieve, that is, it gives the sonic avant-garde status to the work.
Quasimoto The Unseen
Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool
Radiohead The Bends

Rolo Tomassi Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It
When i listened to Tomassi's "Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It", i was absolutely sure that i would come across with something from Post-Rock or from the depths of Experimental Rock. I was surprised to know what Spazzcore is and how diverse all its aspects and pillars support music that goes up to eight minutes in length. The hype on top of this album is really accurate and fair. An evident favorite in the dispute for the best record of 2018.
Roy Ayers Ubiquity Everybody Loves the Sunshine
Rush Hemispheres
Sampha Process
"Process" was the album that surprised me the most in 2017. I remember that it had appeared on Sputnik's home page and i decided to listen without researching the artist. My head exploded with the quality mix of Soul, Funk and Hip-Hop. Sampha is a rising name on the scene, and deserves attention right away. As the review summary of this album says, buy this album already, you will not regret it.

Satyricon Dark Medieval Times
Satyricon is a band known for their musical abilities and also for having inserted medieval elements within the Black Metal. Most amazing, is that even after 25 years, "Dark Medieval Times" is the biggest and best example of this. All the sombre and malevolence added in a cold and perverse genre, brought a legacy of eternal magnitude to the band. Listening to this album, it's like feeling in the Middle Ages, in a peasant life of little hope and short life expectancy.
Sectioned (Metalcore) Annihilated
I wasn't prepared for such a veracious and hateful sound nonsense as "Annihilated" when i listened to it this week. The cover art deceived me, just as it did when i first listened to Discordance Axis. Chaotic Hardcore and all that is most absurd in these genres is here, being one of the best releases of Hardcore in this year. Just listen, it's worth it. And please, get rid of that (Metalcore) shit on the name of the band.
Sepultura Beneath the Remains
Sepultura Arise
"Arise" is a step ahead of its predecessor and a record that put Sepultura as the most relevant Thrash Metal band in 1991. With sounds that open with long introductions and then give you a punch of speed and aggressiveness in the face, the Brazilian band achieved its world status that remains, even with the departure of the Cavalera brothers.
Sigur Ros Agætis byrjun
Sinistro Sangue Cassia
Sleep The Sciences
Sleep seems to have become increasingly aware about the creative ability that can be created upon their works. Mixing Doom elements with Stoner without being repetitive and generic is really difficult, but for the band, it seems like this is a childhood play. "The Sciences" is a release to rejoice many fans of music that comes the year of 2018 as disappointing. The band lets us dream, making us always looking forward to new kind of stuff. Music thanks Sleep, it is for this kind of work that musical diversity is worth it.
Slugdge Esoteric Malacology
The absurd amount of riffs is stunning and in shape of ecstasy. What a wonderful band, what a diverse style and what a brilliant concept. These 58 minutes of pure Sludge were the best of my day, words flee from my mouth when i try to describe how great this record is.

Suffocation Effigy of the Forgotten
It's unusual to see a Death Metal band releasing a debut so complete and brutal like this. Classic.
Suffocation Pierced from Within
As good and spectacular as its three predecessors. It remembers very much the sound adopted in "Effigy of the Forgotten", but evolves in consistency and does not leave the intensity by side until the last second. The beginning of Suffocation's career is a huge feat for Death Metal.
Suicidal Tendencies Suicidal Tendencies
SVPER Pegasvs
SVPER is a Spanish band apparently formed by a couple of the same nationality. "Pegasvs" is the band's first and only complete album. With a majestic mix of Surf Rock and elements of Shoegaze, the band deserved a little more attention for the great material prepared for the album. A worth listen.

Thy Art Is Murder Infinite Death
"Infinite Death" is an almost perfect EP and is the best thing that Deathcore has delivered to the music world in its early years (along with "Doom" from Job For a Cowboy). "I'll Show You God" is a fucking awesome opening track, "Whore to a Chainsaw" is a classic of the band and the genre. Also, "Parasitic Autopsy" and "Infinite Death" are perfect tracks, and the only reason i do not give a perfect score for this album is "Breeding Bacteria", which is a little below the others. It's always good to revisit this beautiful album that opened so many doors for me to discover other absurdities in music.

Title Fight Hyperview
I will never understand the hate and non-acceptance of "Hyperview" from both the fans and the media. The change from the Pop-Punk sound to Shoegaze was one of the best i've ever followed in my life, and "Floral Green" will certainly become a classic in the future. But with "Hyperview" the band surprised me and continues to do that every time i listen to this record. This is fantastic and i love everything in it, not to mention that i have a great affection with this work, since it reminds me of beautiful moments of my life. Over time, this record will be like wine and i have no doubt about it.
Tool Ænima
Tool Fear Inoculum
Trap Them Darker Handcraft
Obscure, dark and really abysmal. A great hardcore album is not only composed of lyrics and some heavier riffs, it has to have a more striking atmosphere to attract the listener. Trap Them knows very well how to do this. With its insane vocalist and harmonious combination of instruments, "Darker Handcraft" is one of the best albums of the genre I've ever heard.
Turnover Peripheral Vision
Tyler, the Creator Flower Boy
Living with criticism and bordering on mediocrity in some ways since "Bastard," Tyler finally managed to release a record that matches his success. The melodies, deep and sweet, join the romantic letters and the feeling of well-being and happiness in which the artist finds himself. The work, almost flawless, presents almost imperceptible flaws, finally putting the work of Tyler in evidence not only for its controversies, but for its qualities as a musician and producer.
Tyler, the Creator IGOR
Ulcerate Everything Is Fire
Ulcerate Shrines of Paralysis
"Shrines of Paralysis" is just a standard work from Ulcerate, with a incredibly dense conpect and bordering on perfection. Every time i revisit the sound of this band, i caught myself in great doubt of what really is the greatest masterpiece of the New Zealander folks. The sonority and instrumental quality only increased with time, along with the speed and comprehensiveness imposed on the atmosphere created. Shrines may be the best work of the band in this current scenario, but i can always end up surprising myself.

Vektor Terminal Redux
Is "Terminal Redux" the best album of 2016? A very complete range of highly qualified bands is out there launching complete and complex records. But they did it with the same impact as Vektor? This is a band that has always surprised me. Their sonority and concept of Thrash is well differentiated from the classic bands of the 90s, and the bands that died (Metallica), making the same generic. Everything you could want in Thrash Metal is in this work. It has speed, intensity, complexity, atmosphere and ideological deepening of space and fantasy themes. A full plate.
VOLA Applause of a Distant Crowd

Wormrot Voices
With tracks that have a clear influence of Black Metal, Wormrot continues to walk the path inside the Grindcore ground, and proves to be the best band of the genre nowadays. Note: Clearly underrated because of the change and the step back in heaviness compared to Dirge.
Wormrot Abuse
"Abuse" is the first release of Wormrot, and almost reached the perfection soon in its debut, a fact that only happened with "Dirge". My only problem here is a few vocal passages and some sound changes to the D-beat and Hardcore side, which the band was not yet very skilled to perform at the time.

1349 Hellfire
"Hellfire" is very heavy, demonic and ruthless as a very strong punch in the face. 1349 is a band with an awful name, and with options and ideas half doubtful within the scope of their works, but what they did in this album, deserves all the applause. Even if it is known and has an interesting fan base, the band is much more linked to the underground because it is not mentioned by other artists. In the end, we have here one of the most genuine works of Black Metal.

21 Savage Savage Mode
I have always looked suspiciously at the work of 21 Savage for his controversy, and his widely unpleasant and devoid lyrics. But in "Savage Mode" what saves the structure of the musician's music is the beats and production work, which is consciously and well elaborated. Maybe i have given a very high rating for this record, but i cannot deny that i not enjoyed listening to the beats and sound turns of this record.

A Tribe Called Quest We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service
"We Got it From Here ... Thank You 4 Your Service" is much more than a celebration of the career of one of the most important Hip-Hop bands. After 18 years without releasing anything, A Tribe Called Quest has released one of the best of this decade. Everything that was used before, was not just a recycling or a different way of telling the same story. The whole effort of the group was to elaborate something different, which went very well. Is there a more enjoyable way to end a career that way?

Ampere Like Shadows
"Like Shadows" is an album that i listened to with low expectations, and this helped me a lot in absorbing the lyrics and structure of the songs. Unknown in his discography, this Ampere album is not at all as fanciful like the others, but presents itself as a beautiful alternative of amusement amid the chaos.

Animosity Animal
Solid and intense from start to finish, "Animal" is an animality imposed in the shape of Deathcore that works well and amuses. The album is very short, like the others of Animosity's discography, and is always a good request for those who like to hear a sonorous brutality.
Anna Burch Quit The Curse
Soft and sweet as you'd expect. At the same time that it looks like Title Fight in some tracks and with a possible influence of the Mac DeMarco (?) in some tonalities of the vocal, what stands out is the beautiful voice of Anna Burch. A great album to listen to at any time and that brings cool emotions and moods for certain occasions.
Aphex Twin Collapse
Archgoat Whore of Bethlehem
"Whore of Bethlehem" is incredibly powerful, with a sound that rips open the walls of our ears with the infernal and devilish grunts. Archgoat is a band that was on 'standby' to listen for, and it seems to me that i came across with one of the best debuts of Black Metal history.
Architects All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us
"All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us" is the most complete and competent album from Architects. Breakdowns are fantastic and the songs are explosive in their definitions from start to finish. It's sad to know that someone as talented as Tom Searle is gone so soon. No one should die at the age of 28.
Architects Holy Hell
Archspire Relentless Mutation
"Relentless Mutation" is relentless and shrewd in thinking about the weight of your notes. Archspire is a band that i took some time to listen to, even got to write down on a personal agenda their names to listen to. I should have listened earlier to be overwhelmed by the absurd and violent speed this album produces. It's not just a pile of screams and deafening notes, it's a record with identity and soul, and that's what really highlights this work.
Arctic Monkeys Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino
The big problem of being a very famous band with an absurdly huge fan base is that each album will share opinions, especially if they change the band's sound or are the fruits of a visionary work. And that's what happens with Arctir Mokeys last release. Fans already feel hurt because they have nothing like "AM" on here, but the reality is that "Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino" is a very mature work for this type of audience. I'm happy to see bands with such attention and recognition of the media launching something that was not even up on their imagination.
Armor Some Kind Of War
Artificial Brain Infrared Horizon
Artificial Brain Labyrinth Constellation
Techinical Death Metal with alien-themed creatures and guttural growls pulled to the extreme of music are the ideal recipe for any extreme music lover. "Labyrinth Constellation" is fantastic, and as good as any other music they are capable of release. Always good to listen to materials that involve fantasies from other planets that sound as perfect as Artificial Brain. Maybe i'll never have to listen to Rings of Saturn again.
Artillery By Inheritance
As Cities Burn Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest
"Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest" is such a good album, which works on both Post-Hardcore and Screamo. The cover art is one of my favorites and i always like to revisit the sound of this band. Perfectly instrumental and with few flaws, As Cities Burn is a band not to be forgotten.
Assuck Anticapital
Assuck Misery Index
August Burns Red Constellations
August Burns Red Found in Far Away Places
August Burns Red Phantom Anthem
"Phantom Anthem" is simply another work with the face and sound of August Burns Red. It's even difficult to compare all the works of the band, since they all look like the same album. But even so, this is not a negative or degrading factor, since they have always been very good and aware in what they do. It remains to us that the band will have in the future one of the most solid discographies in Metal history.
August Burns Red Rescue & Restore
"Rescue & Restore" is quite interesting, but as i've mentioned before in other soundoffs, it's only the expected for the standard the band has always set. There are awesome transitions that animate and shows that August Burns Red is more and more involved with their sound, being more qualified to write more quality music.
Autechre Incunabula
Autechre Confield
The sound quality of these folks is evident, and questioning would even be hypocritical by the current sound standards. Often, the duo hits the hand in an incredible way, and at other times, they does not seem to know in what field they want to act. "Confield" has a small identity problem on some occasions, even if it does not compromise the whole composition. Thus, it is clear to understand that one of their best works is quite experimental and transitional, and seeing through this spectrum, the album is fantastic.
Autechre Garbage
Autechre Amber
Aversions Crown Xenocide
The first time i've heard about Aliencore, i laughed so hard. Even though the design is half strange, the more I listened to bands like Aversious Crown and Rings of Saturn, the more I realized my ignorance at the time. This is not to say that the style is extraordinary or something, but it is a very technical and fun genre to listen to. "Xenocide" is the best album I've ever heard of the style.
Avey Tare Cows On Hourglass Pond
BADBADNOTGOOD III
"III" is the softest and most succinct work of BADBADNOTGOOD. From it, you can already see the tendency to blend Hip-Hop and other contemporary Pop trends, but the focus was still Jazz. In "IV" this happens again, but you can see that the next work will be more innovative in this sense. "III" brings the style to the fore, being that it comes from other times and with few bands to represent it. Seen this, the third work of the band is one of the sincerest works that you will listen in your life.
BADBADNOTGOOD IV
More than a fantastic album that consolidates the career (always above the average) of BADBADNOTGOOD. This record brings a huge amount of emotions. From the quietest and most melancholy moments of jazz, to the most joyful and enthusiastic. Underrated compared to its predecessors, the band's fourth studio album stands out for the songs that feature singers. Charming and wide, an piece of art that worth several checks.
Balance and Composure Separation
Bane Don't Wait Up
A goodbye with a taste of longing. Bane is amazing and always will be. Aaron Bedard is one of the best frontmen of the history of the style, a wide range of influences will be evident with each passing year because of him. "Don't Wait Up" is the second best of the band that today is lacking in the current scene of Hardcore. Few bands can make a farewell with that quality.
Baroness Gold and Grey
Basement Beside Myself
Bathory Blood on Ice
"Blood on Ice" is a morbid celebration within the Middle Ages. The sensations when you hear this, it's like you're in a Viking war, with a headset listening to the weight of Bathory that joins with all the perverse atmosphere of that era. Bathory, in my view, gave the air more atmospheric to Black Metal thanks to this Viking and all the feeling that we are in the middle of ice in a European battle.
Beach House 7
2018 is not being such a good and productive year for the music world, even more so compared to the last two years. In this sense, it's great to see bands with little expectation about their work, releasing albums that really rank among the best of the year. Beach House is this type of band, even more working with an astral genre and with strong imaginary power. With this conclusion, "7" is such an interesting work, which may be one of the best of the year, as well as one of the most relevant work in the history of Dream Pop.

Belvedere Angels Live In My Town
"Angels Live In My Town" is Punk Rock in its essence, speed, posture and creativity. Belvedere has been the band that i enjoy most of the genre since 2012, dividing this post with the old material from Rise Against. Steve Rawles has a distinctive voice and has always married his quality with the songs and melodies created throughout they discography. His quality has also been proven in other side projects like This Is a Standoff. In short, "Angels Live In My Town" is incredible, with awesome songs and absolute delivery of the entire band.
Belvedere 'Twas Hell Said Former Child
Ben Howard Noonday Dream
"Noonday Dream" is a very atmospheric work that appeals to the emotional value. Even if it's not forced, the melodies and sound lines were built to make an impact during the songs. I felt this, but it was not a feeling of sadness and desolation, but rather the pride of listening to a beautiful album in a very dubious year for music. Artists like Ben Howard always contribute in a divergent setting with dubious styles and genres. Sometimes, looking for the conventional is more appropriate.

Benjamin Clementine I Tell A Fly
"I Tell A Fly" is an album that sounds like it's too out of season, and that's really cool. Much of Soul, Jazz and many Blues songs were explored by Benjamin Clementine. With all this in hand, he was able to create a Pop/Soul album that stands out for the life itself that each track presents here. There are moments of exhaustion, joy, sadness, calm and lots of fun. With a great artist like Benjamin Clementine, sound quality is always something to be expected.
Bert Jansch Bert Jansch
Bert Jansch is an unknown artist, even more for having released his best songs in an era that Folk and acoustic music shared the world with Country music. I met him around here, and i saw a lot of people compared his work to Nick Drake's discography in some points. In my opinion, the similarities are very discreet, making this s/t a more cheerful and simple representation of some songs that are in "Pink Moon". So that it, the record is very fun to listen to and worth saving in some playlist to revisit in the future.

"Empire" is a very conceptual and underground record inside Deathcore, which really shows how the genre should sound at first. The ideal is always innovation, even before forgetting and stagnation. In these quests, Bleed From Within has programmed and avoided its risks, making music as a field of work. At the end of the day, with so many generic bands and sound disasters, "Empire" is a good album to realize the quality of the genre.

Bullet Bane Continental
"Continental" is all that many bands are afraid to do, that is... the definitive change of their sound. Here in Brazil, it's common for some bands to walk this way, since the local musical trend changes a lot and there is always a need for new things. Bullet Bane shares the scene of Brazilian Hardcore with Dead Fish, but is already poised to become the most shocking. Before with songs only in English, "Continental" is all sung in Portuguese, with melodies that mix with Portishead and Deftones, but with Hardcore roots.
Bullet Bane Impavid Colossus
"Impavid Colossus" is the best Brazilian Hardcore work since "Sonho Medio" from Dead Fish. What stands out here is the atmospheric alternations that play with the alternative and the progressive. The band fan of Deftones work, and this reflects a lot on some tracks that serve as introductions or musical reliefs. A great lost work in the Brazilian scenario and totally unknown to the foreign public.
Burial Truant/Rough Sleeper
Burzum Belus
"Belus" is certainly the best work that Varg did with Burzum upon his release from prison. Here we can savor the end of Black Metal sound on his albums, as his project now is only ambient music with nordic and mystical influences. Varg made his name with Burzum's legacy, and even though the record is not as skilled to be compared to "Filosofem," it is very dense and atmospheric. "Kaimadalthas' Nedstigning" is a lousy song, but the ones that close the album are practically sublime.
Caliban I Am Nemesis
"I Am Nemesis" is a beautiful Metalcore option with seasoning within a genre so condensed and without much differentiation. The pity is that it seems that this is the only work from the band that really risks to look for something bigger in their sonority. As i always quote here, innovation is always important, even more in a feature-shortage style, such as contemporary Metalcore.
Cannabis Corpse Tube of the Resinated
Cannibal Corpse Kill
Cannibal Corpse Bloodthirst
Cannibal Corpse A Skeletal Domain
"Skeletal Domain" is the record that marked the band's only progressive period, which began with "Evisceration Plague", and became clearer in "Torture". The impact and legady that Cannibal Corpse has built in music is colossal. They never released a bad record (taking away Gore Obsessed which is pretty dubious). Also, the cover is very conceptual and free for arguments, removing for a few years that old fame of violent and dark covers that have made the band even more so in the scene.
Car Bomb w^w^^w^w

Car Seat Headrest Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
Fuck, "Beach Life-In-Death" is practically an anthem, what a sinister and intense music... without words. Car Seat Headrest is a beautiful band, and "Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)" is a re-recording of the same disc that was released in 2011. I have not heard the original yet, but my experience was incredible the first time i listened to this. Need to check the rest of the discography later.
Carnifex Slow Death
"Slow Death" is Carnifex's best work since the beginning of their career, and perhaps the one that had more marketing on their Facebook page. This question kind of moved me a little at first, since the most sincere Deathcore is the one that does not have so much fanfare. But with some Black Metal influences and the evident instrumental evolution, it made all my doubts disappear. Currently, few bands have a growing as original as Carnifex. Now we have to wait for the next jobs, which by the way, has everything to be as good as.

Cattle Decapitation Monolith of Inhumanity
Sometimes the change cames for a good reason. The early Grindcore stuff is repetitive and a little generic. They missed the point in Karma.Bloody.Karma and started to deliver a great production in The Harvest Floor. Monolith is a achievement to all the process started in 1999.
Celtic Frost Morbid Tales
The influence of "Morbid Tales" on Black Metal is absurd. Almost all the bands that have appeared in the last twenty years, quote this album like one of their majors influences. Celtic Frost has always been at the tip of the iceberg in these quests, and their early works are what shaped the entire Black Metal identity along with other bands from the first two waves of the genre. I just think the aging process on the album was more negative than anything else, but that does not detract from its legacy.
Cephalic Carnage Anomalies
One of the best Deathgrind records out there. The mix of genres and the chaotic sound of the blast beats are absurd.

Incredibly diverse and fun, "Awaken, My Love!" is the best thing Donald Glover ever did in his life (along with Atlanta, of course). The soft sound mixes with influences from various genres and gives life to a soulful album. Complex in its ideology, the cover is another commemoration of his origins and struggles. Note: The cover easter egg in the episode "Juneteenth" is spectacular.

A incredible and well-structured blend of pop-punk/emo music. Good album to know the sonority of the band before going into Youth, which is their best.

City and Colour The Hurry and the Harm
"The Hurry and the Harm" made the media and the fans feel angry, because Dallas Green opted to leave the Underground, making a more commercial album. Even though this is usually an erroneous choice, i believe City and Colour made it right. Even if the next album is no longer commercial, "The Hurry and the Harm" presents good songs, with good lyrics and good moments. I really like this album because of the relationship it has in my life and in my relationship with my girlfriend, but if it was not for that, i would like the songs the same way.

Close Your Eyes Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts
"Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts" is one of the albums that i listened to most in my adolescence, being always very pleasant to revisit this sound to remember good moments. Close Your Eyes was a very famous band at that time, precisely because it came from Victory Records. The sound is very original and unique for a new band. What always stood out were Shane's vocals, and his departure is still kind of controversial to me (even if he returned a few years later). Finally, i always like to quote "Valleys" as one of the definitive anthems of my musical life.
Close Your Eyes We Will Overcome
"We Will Overcome" is that album from your teenage years that you know it sucks, but you still love all the songs and consider a nostalgic piece. At the time of its release, many people were surprised by Victory Records signing with a promising band. The album is full of little details that are very valuable, and with some of the best songs of the band, that today can be considered classics. Shane's vocal performance is really incredible here. An essential record for those who like music sung with the heart.
Coalesce 0:12 Revolution in Just Listening
"0:12 Revolution in Just Listening" is incredible, being the album that helped shape the character of the Metallic Hardcore along with The Dillinger Escape Plan, and so many other bands from the late 90's. It features everything that is characteristic of both time of the release as of the genre that was still being developed. Later this concept lost himself and turned into the infamous Metalcore.

Converge No Heroes
"No Heroes" underrated as fuck. Converge has always been able to produce and create masterpieces in all strands and spaces of time between releases. The first part of this album is like getting hit by a truck several times in just five minutes. The rest may seem dull and appealing in melody that feats some Sludge and Doom elements, but it works completely together.
Converge Petitioning the Empty Sky
"Petitioning the Empty Sky" is the album that shaped the identity of Converge, being considered the greatest "classic" of the band nowadays. The first eight tracks of the album are all that any fan of the band loves, the speed and harshness or the characteristic screams from Jacob Bannon. The live and additional tracks are expendable, but that did not matter much to the final product.
Cormorant Diaspora
Coroner No More Color
Coroner is that famous band created by roadies of Celtic Frost, that made a discography all conceptual and full of novelty, always surprising, and always showing that the unknown can be more shocking. "No More Color" is their best album i've heard so far, even though i've ventured a few times with "Mental Vortex", which by the way, is an overrated album. Anyway, it's cool to see how this band is able to create good songs.
Counterparts Tragedy Will Find Us
"Tragedy Will Find Us" is fantastic, but also the only Counterparts album that took more time to be digested by myself. After a few months listening, i thought this was the band's most average work, but i was so damn wrong. "Stranger" is one of the best songs of the band's discography, and the entire design of the album only improves with time.
Counterparts The Current Will Carry Us
"The Current Will Carry Us" is a kind of record that is good with multiple revisits. I remember the first time i listened to this album in 2011, and i found it very weak and without any differential. Okay, my taste at that time was pretty generic and Escape the Fate was one of my favorite bands (I only like the first record). Nowadays i get to enjoy a lot of what is one of the best works of the band. This may be the third record i most enjoy by them, but my rankings change from months to months.
Counterparts Prophets
"Prophets" is the definitive answer to the entire transition that Melodic Hardcore has made in the last decade. Counterparts is the best band of the style currently, and i think this will hardly changes in a short time. At the launch of "Prophets", we could already see that the band was visionary and would look for other fields, always spandering their sound and seeking reference that enrich more what they were already doing. Nowadays, Counterparts has a sound so characteristic that with a song we already know that they are doing work with great quality.

Cult Leader Lightless Walk
"Lightless Walk" shows all the weight and sincerity of a band that seeks their place inside the genre. Cult Leader is a band that establishes their sound in the same proposal of Trap Them and Cursed, but at the same time, it uses certain elements that differentiate it from his co-brothers.

Cursed III: Architects of Troubled Sleep
The third and final release of the legendary Chaotic Hardcore band, Cursed, is a lesson in sound intensity, distortion and anger transformed into melody. Closing a trilogy of almost perfect works, the band leaves a legacy for the Hardcore scene, but unfortunately suffers for being extensively Underground, which never contributed in the divulgation.

D.R.I. 4 of a Kind
"4 of a Kind" is a much more experimental record from a broad-based Hardcore discography. When Dirty Rotten Imbeciles merged with Thrash Metal, many bands of the genre already shared the world music scene. Betting on the Crossover was a measure of reaching both sides. In the case of D.R.I. this went very well and continues to give, since the album has become a landmark in the genre.

Dance Gavin Dance Mothership
Dance Gavin Dance Happiness
"Happiness" is colorful and incredibly didactic. The album is full of influences that go by different styles, meeting in a modern mountain of Post-Hardcore that only this band manages to deliver. I'm a bit of a hypocrite to say that all the albums from Dance Gavin Dance sound the same, but there's always a little detail on each record that sets it apart, whether it's jazz roots or even production quality. Incredible and necessary in any playlist.
Dance Gavin Dance Artificial Selection
"Artificial Selection" is just Dance Gavin Dance being themselves. All their albums sound the same, and this is sometimes bad, even though i consider their work almost perfect. In "Artificial Selection", we see a sequence of "Mothership", that is, it is the band using the same formula in different ways, to reach a new level of competence and innovation. All this process has not really been visualized here, but who knows in the future?

A beautiful album that mixes elements of peace, will, disturbance and complexity on human aspects. With a vocal that stands out even in moments that are at the bottom of the songs "Atoma" can be considered without exaggeration the best album of Melodic Death Metal in 2016.
Daughters Hell Songs
My argument to Extortion's "Sick" does not apply to "Hell Songs." Seeing their own music entering stagnation and boredom paths, the band risked all his concept entering into other genres, seeking sonorities inside the Doom, Sludge and Hardcore Punk world. That's exactly what extreme genre bands should do.

Deadguy Fixation on a Coworker
"Fixation on a Coworker" is a step further for the extreme music that was already being included in the Hardcore, next to the Grindcore that already had this tendency since the end of the 80's. Deadguy was a totally unknown band for me, and after a lot of research i've discovered this work. The cover art deceives well and even frightens about the carelessness and little case of the band in the matter of the creativity. But the music itself, accounts for all the message that wanted to be there. Essence hardcore is only really visualized in this heavier vertex that came in the 90's.

18 minutes of Death Grips in a song entitled Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber Megamix). Impossible to be less than spectacular such a genuine piece of music like that.
Death Grips Bottomless Pit
Death Grips has always been very insane, but also a clear watershed within the mainstream. I see people saying that all the noise is without conception and that "the" meaning does not exist, just as i see people idolizing all the innovative feat the trio has always made. I'm on this side of the game, seeing that it's hardly going to be a bad or dubious record of all their work. "Bottomless Pit" caught me by surprise when i listened for some time, but today i see that it was quite what the band thought of delivering to their audience.

Decapitated Carnival Is Forever
Carnival Is Forever is a blast from the past who gave some expectations for the future. But then...Blood Mantra came out and Anticult put the band back in the game, even that it sounds a album who lack in diversity and creativity.
Defeater Lost Ground
"Lost Ground" is an amazing EP, and considered by many the best work of the band. I was not thrilled the way i thought it would be, but that does not detract the band's merit and the impact of that album that emerged in the genre as a watershed between Hardcore and Modern Hardcore.
Deftones Adrenaline
"Adrenaline" is the beginning of one of the best things that ever happened in the music world. The first work of Deftones is incredibly sensible and prominent in a genre full of horrible bands with generic songs. The album is not one of the bests, but that's not an offense. "Gore" is the only one that is behind the debut album, but always presenting the experimental question that put the band on the plate that stands today.
Deftones Deftones
In the entire Deftones discography, i left the s/t to listen last. I always had a prejudice with this album for the generic cover and the lack of creativity in the name at the time of release, even more so for a band so innovative and consistent. But the album by itself is pretty good and acceptable to the standards. The only negative aspect of the album is the large number of tracks that seem just one, which greatly diminished my acceptance and rating for this work. I confess that i need to listen to this disc more often, but for now, this is my verdict.
Deftones Koi No Yokan
"Koi No Yokan" is the most emotional and sincere record of Deftones' career. Without leaving any element of the various genres explored by the band, 2012 was a year of great surprise with the release of one of the best works of the genre. The work begins heavy but alternates with many atmospheric changes that bring calm and sometimes even psychological disturbances. Well, it's a bit difficult to define all the band's work and divide each one with the concept on it. What remains, is the fact that Deftones is definitely one of the best bands that we still have the pleasure of listening and seeing live.
Deicide Deicide
Deicide is one of the most prominent and recognized names in Death Metal. With Satanic themes (always), and a lot of noise, the band has a respectable discography, even with repeated failures. On their debut album, almost everything works out. What really bothers is what has always been a barrier in the quality of the band: Vocals and exacerbated satanism. Even so, the 1990 album is a classic of its genre.

"The Ills of Modern Man" is one of Deathcore's most technical and serious albums. Even with all the noise and many notes that seem to be played as a crusher, the band is increasingly becoming the titan of the style. Riffs, blast beats and a completely insane screaming dominate the album. The best of them.
Despised Icon Day of Mourning
Destroyer 666 Unchain The Wolves
Destroyer 666 is one of the most awful names in the history of music. I confess that i even got a foot behind listening for the name, here in Brazil this is always very valid. But i decided to listen to "Unchain The Wolves" and found it very diverse, complete and valid for the genre. Maybe if the band were smarter once, they would have put a name that matches the sound. It's worth listening to.

Within the Black Metal genre, i see few people talking about the early works of Dimmu Borgir. It always seemed that other bands received more attention, or that the band was so discreet that they didn't deserved a discussion about them. And i really do not understand these things, especially when i come across with works like "Stormblast". This is a great example of harsh Black Metal with atmosphere, medieval sounds and other aspects that shape themselves a single huge record.

"Cold Air" is an album that begins in a very lazy way, almost compromising the work in its totality. What saves it's the half to the end of the album, which shows a new perception of Shoegaze, and how the strange atmosphere of the style can open new horizons for bands that are yet to emerge.
Drudkh They Often See Dreams About The Spring
"They Often See Dreams About The Spring" is excellent and provides to us five well-crafted songs. Even though the intensity is not extended, and Drudkh's Black Metal concept is only normal for progressive standards, the disc is quite acceptable and good to listen to sometimes. It will surely be forgotten over time, but this is common in the genre.

Dying Fetus Killing on Adrenaline
"Killing on Adrenaline" is the best and most consistent album of the early years of Dying Fetus. The sound is unique, making the band walk from Death Metal, to Deathgrind, and even parking on the technical elements of the style. A underrated classic that have its weight but don't focus in searching just one public. Also, the cover art is a shame in comparison with their sonority.
Dying Fetus Wrong One To Fuck With
One of the biggest suprises of 2017. The structure of the songs still pretty decent and delivers a great time of fun. The decision in changing their logo is great too, even that now it looks like from a Blackened Death Metal band. The doubt is only in their live performances. The clean concept have a well-produced line, but this might fool us about their real sonority.

Earl Sweatshirt always walked in the shadow of Tyler, the Creator and the rest of his Odd Future teammates. However, this was never a justification for criticizing or putting the work at a low level. Earl has always done good works and good collaborative performances on other albums, but he was lacking something authorial to finally show the world that he can do more. And it all happened in "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside". The future will be bright for this musician.

"Heaven Adores You" is just a compilation of songs found in the documentary of the same name. I could open a discussion about the quality of the film, but this forum does not have this purpose. So i'm just gonna say that it's interesting to listen to another side of Elliott. A lot of people may end up not liking this record, but this should be regarded as a soundtrack, and only that.
Elvis Depressedly Holo Pleasures/California Dreamin'
"Holo Pleasures/California Dreamin" is a beautiful compilation of songs to listen to on a daily basis. As a relief from rest, the sound is not as powerful and striking as some Mac DeMarco albums, but incredible as it sounds, some tracks here can overcome a lot of "Salad Days" tracks. Elvis Depressedly is an artist to be noticed, paying attention to this type of music yields many fruits in the future.

Expire Pretty Low
Expire's best album wins this title for the diversity imposed by the band. In general, the three albums are very similar, but it is in "Pretty Low" that it is evident the creativity and inspiration that the band was able to have with itself to give life to the album. A great Hardcore album that at the same time is very simple and certainly one of the best I've heard in recent years.
Face to Face Big Choice
The more i talk about the Punk Rock of the 90's, the more i have no arguments, since quality presents itself in the same concepts and definitions. Face to Face provided a great show to me in 2015, which made me listen a lot to "Big Choice", which in its entirety, is the band's best album. Here we find some classics and a lot of melody in a genre of a great amount of speed.
Failure In The Future Your Body Will Be The Furthest Thing From Your Mind
Far Water & Solutions
"Water & Solutions" is very quiet and soft to the ears. Unfortunately, the band is gone and all the work done in the 90's is forgotten or totally embedded in the underground scene. The result: this is like Glassjaw in the best mood possible, singing about cheerful facts and moments of relaxation. Very fun and restrained, it is worth checking out this work at least once in your life.

"When the Pawn..." is music that comes from the soul and is idealized to be thought of. It has the face of the 90's and is not a masterpiece, but pretty cool to listen and reflect on some things in life. Fiona Apple sings very well and has a band highly qualified to support her, a good set reminiscent of Alanis Morissette's timing.

For the Fallen Dreams Six
For the Fallen Dreams is that kind of band that does not get so much attention by simply not doing anything so relevant in their work. But that started to change in "Heavy Hearts", even if with little impact. In "Six", i see the band finally finding their place and their path within their sonority, being so far, the best Metalcore album released in this weak year of 2018.
Foxing The Albatross
Foxygen We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors...
"We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors ..." is a recommendation that my girlfriend gave me yesterday, and certainly one of the most surprising ones to me this week. I had never heard anything about the band, until i saw a review of Fantano these times, but i let it go. The psychedelia imposed by the band is very original, and the album is so good that when it finishes it, i felt a taste of: "this is good shit, i want more".
Frank Ocean Blonde
I still don't understand "Blonde" and some dubious choices that Frank Ocean took in the construction of this work. "Nikes" is not a very good song to open the record, and all the charm and consistency presented in the first few tracks seems to gain a sudden brake with some absurdly slow songs. I like it, and i will always enjoy listening to "Blonde", since there are many quality and few wrong choices. But i believe that this work had the potential to be much more than "channel ORANGE".

It'll certainly become a future classic of the genre.

God Is an Astronaut The End of the Beginning
Post Rock is a really interesting genre, and it develops a unique experimental feeling. There is no lead singer who drives all the structures of the songs, the work of building quality is in the hands of the rest of the band. And that's exactly what happens with great dexterity in "The End of the Beginning." God is an Astronaut is a good band, which in addition to being recognized, sometimes quotes Space Rock within their albums, forming a unique identity to a deep style.

Gorement The Ending Quest
Gorguts Obscura
It is undeniable that "Obscura" is one of the greatest masterpieces in Metal history. Without being overrated or anything, the record has a unique face, and an identity difficult to be imitated or vaunted by other bands. I've listened a few times to set an opinion about it, and despite having a great respect for this album and the band, i can't consider "Obscura" their best album. Being too big, i feel bored at times, but not because this is bad, but because it's very condescended. Maybe my opinion changes in the future, but now my feeling comes down to this.
Gorguts Considered Dead
"Considered Dead" is the raw sound of Gorguts when it comes to Death Metal. The progressive elements still did not appear in great abundance, and at the same time, there was no sense of the band discovering their sonority. As a transition, "Considered Dead" is one of the best Death Metal debut albums, and a significant hit in the ensuing.
GosT Possessor
"Possessor" is as if we were ejected into the 80's amidst a morbid and colorful scenario at the same time. A work that closely resembles the soundtracks of series like Stranger Things, provides more prospects than could have been done a few years ago. I venture to say that it is as if Duran Duran meet Kraftwerk and together, they elaborated a work with influences of the Atmospheric Black Metal and with nostalgic subjects.
Gram Parsons Grievous Angel
Greyhaven Empty Black
"Empty Black" works all the progressivity imposed in both Rock and Metal. In addition to the lightness in the compositions, some tracks have their weight and value. Knowing the sound of Greyhaven only now, i can't say too much about the historical context and the evolution of the band. But i can faithfully say that this record is one of the best of the year so far.
GridLink Longhena
GridLink Orphan
If you compare "Amber Gray" with "Orphan", little has to be added or differentiated. I believe that the two works live on the same level in both impact and sound quality. I put "Orphan" a little below of his predecessor for the simple fact of not having listened so many times. For now, my favorite record of them is "Longhena," but i believe it will change from time to time.
Grimes Miss Anthropocene
Grimes Halfaxa
Haircuts for Men 1982

Harakiri for the Sky Arson
"Arson" is a brake on the band's innovation and breadth, but it's not even close to be a insult or misjudgment. The album is full of spectacular elements that really fill many spaces that their left in the last works. "Aokigahara" can be considered the masterpiece of the band, but the last record of the Austrian folks is intense from the beginning to the end. The duration of the record is almost imperceptible after you catch yourself being immersed in the sound quality imposed by the eight songs.
Harm's Way (USA-IL) Posthuman
The constant evolution of Harm's Way is becoming more and more evident. The transitions between style and sonorities highlight this album, which is certainly one of the best and most mature works of the band.

Have Heart is that kind of band that will be remembered in the future as one of the most powerful and contagious of the genre. With incredible lyrics and a sound that differs from the others, the Straight Edge band made its name inside the Hardcore impeccably. "Songs to Scream at the Sun" features everything the listener needs, as well as being accessible to all ears.

"Limbless At Birth" is a very interesting EP from a band that until now is unknown. The quality is surprising for a first release, and some lessons can be taken from here. The Death Metal issue mixed with Beatdown does not work, and it practically ruins one of six songs in here. But other than that, i see no other factor that compromises the final product.

Immortal Battles in the North
I have a little experience inside Immortal's discography, but after listening to "Battles in the North", i have the brief impression that this is the most underrated album of the band. With highs and lows, one of the biggest Black Metal bands has always been connected to the cooler, chilling and even comic side of the genre thanks to Abbath, but always punctuating the sound quality as a propeller of the band's success. "Battles in the North" is a great job that brings everything essential in the genre, giving off thermal sensations and perhaps proving that if hell exists, it is absurdly cold.
In Flames Come Clarity
Infant Annihilator The Elysian Grandeval Galèriarch
Deathcore's most beloved satirical band returned in 2016 to release yet another musical nonsense. "The Elysian Grandeval Galeriarch" is fun, monstrous and with a 17 minute track, which is amazing for a meme band that only exists to make fun of the whole genre. Many people see problem here, and value much more for sound quality than for entertainment. If you look at the second aspect, it's a lot of fun for almost an hour, and this is also proven in the music video for "Blasphemian".
Infant Annihilator The Battle of Yaldabaoth
Inferi (USA) Revenant
"Revenant" is all people have been talking about since 2014. Technical and largely progressive, taking elements from other genres and making their music unique and explosive. I see Inferi near Artificial Brain and other bands that are coming up with a lot of musical hunger. "Revenant" is one of the best Metal albums of the year so far.

With obvious success, it should soon appear an LP of this artist, and i hope it does not fall into the tale of the mainstream, keeping the originality.

Jamiroquai Synkronized
"Synkronized" is the most experimental record from the band. The Acid Jazz is set aside in a few moments for the smoothest and most danceable side to appear. Jamiroquai is a band with a impeccable discography, being unique in the world of music for its sonority as well as its folk style.

Jon Hopkins Singularity
Jon Hopkins music is very astral, getting to always relate his work with a strong trip of LSD or any other hallucinogen. Singularity is a great success, being a work that opens the imaginative field of the people and that presents great compositions that emphasize diverse types of feelings. Perhaps the only hindrance, has been to close the album in a melancholy way, but if this option was thought, we can withdraw this argument.

Kacey Musgraves Golden Hour
"Golden Hour" is an essential choice for those who enjoy the soft side of Folk, in other words: The Country music. Kacey Musgraves voice is sweet and absurdly powerful, standing out from the melody and all the sonority imposed on the album. I'm quite surprised, because i never thought i would listen to a Country work for so long, enjoying every single track. Her delivery in the songs is clear, making this release one of the best of the first half of 2018.
Kanye West Yeezus
Kanye West ye
For a change, Kanye West gained his spotlight and his space in the radios with more controversy.
His new album comes out of nowhere, after he returns to Twitter talking a lot of shit without any
nexus. In "ye", West's unique qualities are based on his impeccable production and some melodies
that are very strong and engaging. The lyrics have always been the weak of it, more by his ego and
his absurd notion of life and universe. Even so, it's cool to have people like him in music. Not
mentioning his life outside music, Kanye West has contributed a lot to Hip-Hop and will continue
to do so in favor of quality music.

Edit: yeah, i was wrong in some arguments, this is lit.

Kendrick Lamar DAMN.
When "DAMN." was released, i did everything to not listen and distance myself from all the hype and all the discussion that his fans created on top of that work. I'd rather not stretch too long, but i think Kendrick Lamar is on the threshold of everything he's ever built, and "DAMN." it's like a celebration of it all, without wanting to be something more. But when we speak of such a skilled artist, that means a great deal.

Kanye West arrived with everything in the first half of the year. Controversial declarations in social networks, an own album that emerges as a watershed, productive collaborations as in the new Pusha T disc, and a collaborative record with Kid Cudi. The work is up in the house and in the studio of the West's, and "Kids See Ghosts" shows that it is not just a usual job, but one with great production effort. Kanye sometimes misses his audience and his timing, but by the way he's relentless this year.
Kill The Client Cleptocracy
"Cleptocracy" is so perverse and harsh that it becomes funny. Kill the Client is a little-known band in the extreme music scene, but with just that work, it manages to be more consistent and relevant than many bands that gets more spotlights. Listen one, two, ten, forty times and you'll understand what i'm talking about.r

Korn The Serenity of Suffering
"The Serenity of Suffering" is a breath of fresh air and a great relief to the band and its fans. Korn has bridged some existential crises and tried to get past Skrillex and all the forgettable things of music over the last few years. But unexpectedly, the album appears and shows that the they still knows how to be loyal to their style.
Korn Korn
Korn's first release, scares by his cover art and innovates by the sonority in the beginning of the Nu Metal journey. Jonathan Davis definitely marked his name as one of the most characteristic voices in the music world here. In their s/t, the band consciously enjoyed all that Metal could provide at the time, putting some synthesizers and abusing a little bit of what turned the genre into a generic product. Among the top five Nu Metal releases (in my opinion), Korn's early work is precious.
Kreator Coma of Souls
"Coma of Souls" is a beautiful work that emerged in a time when the greatest bands of the genre already presented their weaknesses. In that kind of detail, Thrash Metal has turned into a style that features the best albums from lesser-known bands with few spotlights, even if they are well known in some aspects. Kreator is nanic close to bands like Metallica and Megadeth, even more in the 90s, but with "Coma of Souls," a band of lesser power managed to be much better than those with commercial appeal. It is always good to see and hear this kind of event.
L'Orange and Jeremiah Jae The Night Took Us In Like Family
"The Night Took Us In Like Family" is a great collab album that provides many features of Hip-Hop, Jazz and even some more sonorities to the Soul side. Here everything works, showing it to be an album that should not be forgotten, even if it already is. It is worth checking.

Everything is well lined here. Awesome drum work who combines with the riffs and the screams by Randy Blythe. Even that his influences are from the hardcore scene, he made a fucking great job here.

Leonard Cohen You Want It Darker
"You Want It Darker" is more somber and lonely than it seems. Shortly after the release, Leonard Cohen left us almost the same way as David Bowie. It seems that when you are born genius, until your death you plan, creating songs and works that went down in history as your last, and perhaps the best of your career. I love this record, and my relationship with Cohen's songs has only intensified over time. Genius like this might not fit in such a small world like our world.

Lo Moon Lo Moon
I tried to listen to "Lo Moon" but i fell asleep three times last weekend. This is not saying that the album is weak or lazy enough to make me fall asleep. Today in my work, i had the opportunity to check the entire album and it is very interesting. Some aspects are commercial and leave the quality of the disc at the margin of rejection. But other than that, everything is well fitted and harmonious.
Loathe (UK) I Let It In And It Took Everything
Loma Loma
This record surprised me. Unable to distinguish the genre and the characteristic sonority of the band, i lost myself in some moments of pure trance amidst the fanciful songs with abysmal distortions. "Loma" is a great album, and maybe it will be one of the best of the year in its concept.

Magrudergrind Magrudergrind
Magrudergrind may be considered an underrated band of the style, but sometimes this conception makes sense. In the beginning of the album, we are surprised by a speed punch in the face, but decreases the pain merging the sound with other aspects that do not match with Grindcore. Even so, i'm a big fan of this album and i do consider this work one of the best in the history of the genre.

Marduk Heaven Shall Burn... When We Are Gathered
"Heaven Shall Burn ... When We Are Gathered" is an album that has never received attention. Marduk is a military band with lyrics totally linked to the history of this theme, but even so, a lot of good has been developed. This album has all the shade and perversion that the genre presents, from the cover art to the deafening sound of the blast beats of the drums. Do yourself a favor, and start your journey on the Marduk sound with this album.

Mayhem Esoteric Warfare
"Esoteric Warfare" is the best work of Mayhem since "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas". The only difference is that it seems the band has finally broken their ties with their past history, looking to the future and creating a new identity. The production may seem somewhat amateurish in certain matters, but in a genre like Black Metal, it fits in the final product. It's interesting to see that bands like Mayhem still have firewood to burn inside the music industry.
Meat Puppets Meat Puppets II
Aside the "Nirvana" tracks (i know that they did covers of that songs just for the unplugged), Meat Puppets have their talents. Aurora Borealis is pure gold. A must listen.
Melvins Gluey Porch Treatments
"Gluey Porch Treatments" was released in 1987, and after that, a whole range of bands and distinct sonorities began to appear in music. Considered one of the most influential bands in Metal, and the one that really conceptualized Sludge Metal, Melvins has always been at the top of its own game, showing it steadily in the early years of its formation. Strange and different for the time, the genre is one of the most unique and underappreciated genres in the music spectrum, which is a shame.
Memphis May Fire The Hollow
"The Hollow" is one of my favorite teenage albums with "The Sinner" releasing all my inner demons and showing other worlds of the extreme music. The design of the lyrics and even the name of the songs is highly genius, showing that Memphis May Fire was one of the few band that reached its peak in the limit between Metalcore and Deathcore. It's a shame that the band got lost soon after that. Mixing religion and little inspiration was not a good choice.
Mercyful Fate Melissa
Meshuggah obZen
"obZen" deserves to be applauded for its impeccable production, and for the band's dedication to building a work of immense quality and perfection. Meshuggah has already divided this progressive scenario with Gojira for some years, but has not yet reached the same impact as his "brother". When we talk about these record, the track "Bleed" and the delay in producing it are always mentioned to make it very clear and audible on each note and chord. Other than that, the album is really fantastic, but it gets a little shadow of that song.

"Who Told You To Think?!?!?!?!" is incredible, showing the incredible number of materials that can be used by an artist in the composition of a work in its entirety. One of the best works of the genre i heard last year was "So The Flies Do not Come" and i didn't checked the rest of his discography, a real shame. Here you find everything you could want in this genre, believe me, it's worth just listening until you're tired.

emptyness. My father almost died in 2014 and spent several months in hospital with my mom. I
became a little lonely, my mom slepped everyday in the hospital with my father and my therapy was
music. I haven't even heard about Sputnik in that time. I know that this album is generic and a
strange path the band tracced. But this really helped me a lot in a time of extreme changes of my
life. Now i'm in another bad mood, and when i remember this album and that time of my life that
fortunatelly end in the best way possible, is always a harsh and pleasure listening.

Moby Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt
"Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt" is all i wanted right now. Moby made me very disappointed last year with his album "More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse". Everything was wrong and very confusing there, which made it difficult for me to listen to the record more than once. Now in 2018, our infamous musician has managed to really get back to the top of the game that only he knows.

Mol JORD
"JORD" is an album that appears as a possibility within Blackgaze, making the contrary decisions that Ghost Bath has taken, and bringing more atmospheric influences from Black Metal than from Dream Pop/Shoegaze. The disc is not wide and cataclimatic in the same way that all the Deafheaven albums are, but the band is much more present in what the Alcest imposed the music, than its other neighbors. Good music with atmospheric chilling and with good perspectives in a debut album that deserves the attention in this bad year for music in general.

One of the best albums i listened last year is also one of the saddest and most sentimental. The reality of the disc matches some moments and situations that i have experienced in the last weeks of my life. The melodies fit together, making the music stand out among so many bands of the style. An essential album for the lovers of the genre.

Morbid Saint Spectrum of Death
"Spectrum of Death" gets a lot of love from Thrash fans, and that's pretty fair as Morbid Saint managed to create a huge fan base with only one record. The quality is there and the inspiration goes hand in hand. It is clear that the band has taken away much of their creative ability from the little production they had to develop the songs, and this gives more credit to these guys.
Moses Sumney Grae
Movements Feel Something
Mudvayne L.D. 50
"L.D. 50" is truly incredible and visionary for such a bizarre genre as Nu Metal. Even so, i don't consider this work as the definitive work of the genre, since "Around the Fur" exists for our happiness. I'm always impressed when i listen to the sound of these folks, even more the older material, since the recent one don't reach the same level. But there is something that bothers me on "L.D. 50": the large number of tracks, which really gets quite annoying, even if it does not detract from the merit and quality of the band at its peak.
Mukeka di Rato Gaiola
Municipal Waste Hazardous Mutation
Municipal Waste The Art of Partying
As i mentioned earlier, Municipal Waste is a very generic band that presents nothing but fun. "The Art of Partying" is the great example of this, but there is a bit of diversity here at least. Many good songs come together to form an above-average record, but that's too long for the little repertoire that the band has always had.

The album starts with a straight punch in the face and continues the aggression for the fourteen minutes. The pure essence of the genre. Class.
Nails You Will Never Be One of Us
The third full length album from the sinister trio is full of energy and continue to trace a path of originality and noise. The only issue is the lack of improvement on the structure of the songs, but nothing that ruin the impact of the album.

Napalm Death Harmony Corruption
Napalm Death took their first steps in Death Metal with the consistent and well-executed "Harmony Corruption". Featuring elements of Grindcore and a totally focused sound in the most popular metal style of the 1990s, the band has shown that they also knows to be almost perfect in other styles. The production leaves something to be desired in some aspects, making the bass become almost inaudible. However, the highlight focus on the lyrics that are full of harsh screams and the deafening noise of the entire composition.
Napalm Death Utilitarian
After leaving Death Metal aside after the disaster of "Inside the Torn Apart" and "Words from the Exit Wound", Napalm Death returned to bet on a mix of Hardcore Punk with Grindcore. The 2000's were spectacular for the band, with six albums far above average, and this fact was extended to the 2010's. "Utilitarian" emerged in 2012, and is certainly the best and most complete piece of modern Grindcore by the band. The record is huge, intense, violent and rough as it should be, but with a production that stands out in the genre. In addition, it serves as a good introduction to the sound of the band.
Nasum Inhale/Exhale
With incredible 38 songs in just 45 minutes, "Inhale / Exhale" is one of Grindcore's greatest classics, and one of the most forgotten. Nasum was an incredible band and the death of Mieszko Talarczyk was really tragic. The band has always been very consistent until their inevitable end, but their debut album stands out as one of the most violent records of the genre.
Nasum Shift
"Shift" may be Nasum's work i least enjoy listening to. But even so, i admit his impact and the consistency that does not stop until the last minute. In the end, when you hear "Shift", you're just listening to another record coming from one of the most complete bands of Grindcore history.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds From Her To Eternity
I have been convincing myself more and more that Nick Cave is the most fantastic artist born in Australia. His sonority walks by many styles, forming works that do not abstain to discover other musical gaps. Cave always seems very hungry for quality innovation, and it is no wonder that one of the best albums of 2016 is from him. Here we have a more nervous and agitated version of this beautiful musician, who released his debut album as a way to balance the musical world. He managed to do that? Of course.

No Use for a Name Making Friends
No Use for a Name is a band of great sentimental value to me, a lot because of the lyrics and the unexpected death of Tony Sly. In their discography, we can see that everything was developing to make the band into a more Emo Punk Rock side. "Making Friends" is an album that shows the band in a stage of anger and revolt, which has developed over time. A few of the best songs written by Tony Sly are here. It's a shame that this band does not receive so much affection as they deserves.
Nocturnus The Key
Nocturnus is one of the most innovative bands in the history of Death Metal. The inclusion of keyboards and atmospheric effects began with "The Key", influencing numerous bands that appear until this day. The album is complete and has all the necessary pecularities of the genre. The design of the cover of the disc is really sensational and was what attracted me most to listen to the band. The sonority and the production may bother in some moments, but listening to it for a few weeks will result in an even more positive rating.

"Handle With Care" shows the Crossover intensity, being much more a Thrash record than Hardcore. The production is very harsh, but by the standards of that season this is ok. Nuclear Assault is a band renowned for some songs, and i believe that here was the apex of the band. Too bad it went into ostracism, but the genre has already been dead for some time already.

Our Place of Worship is Silence is a good option within the current scenario of Death Metal.

Panopticon Roads to the North
It's really amazing what can make a man very inspired and with a genius above normal. Austin Lunn is there to prove that with just a head and no interference from studio and other members, that even in a complex genre like Black Metal, you can create pioneering and perfect sound destruction (in a good way). "Roads to the North" is beautiful, inspiring, transcendental and with a concrete extension in its development. It seems to me that i have discovered a band to listen for the next months.
Panopticon Autumn Eternal
Pantera Far Beyond Driven
There are bands that walk through some styles for years, until they find their real identity. One of these is Pantera. The band's journey in Hair Metal is hilarious, the one in Thrash Metal, gets to be well overrated and generic mainly in "Cowboys From Hell", but in Groove Metal .... the band finally found themselves.
Pantera Vulgar Display of Power
When we talk about Pantera, we always think about the extreme skill and technical knowledge of Dimebag and the characteristic screams by Phil Anselmo. Even with all the differential that Dime always brought to the band, the lyrics were always something that prevented the Pantera from reaching a level that was even more relevant than at its height. As already commented in some reviews, there is not much diversity of sound, besides the band does not take much risk. Note: Vinnie Paul extremely underrated.
Parkway Drive Killing with a Smile
"Killing with a Smile" was a monster of a release back in 2005, and remains as one of the best albums in Metalcore's history. It's sad to see what Parkway Drive is nowadays, but at least until 2012, it was possible to keep up and go on gigs of a reputable and good fucking band. It's not too much to ask for some music like "Romance is Dead", but after this week, it would be easier to have peace on earth.
Parkway Drive Atlas
Parkway Drive Horizons
"Horizons" is the best work by Parkway Drive, and in my view, the best Metalcore record of 2007. We can say that the Australians folks have launched a distinct trend inside the style, mixing more element of Death Metal than Hardcore. Metalcore itself, defines the band and all their trajectory, but the weight is evident and characteristic, which influenced other bands like Texas In July. Always good to revisit "Horizons" to reminisce about my teenage years.
Parquet Courts Wide Awake
Penfold Amateurs and Professionals
"Amateurs and Professionals" is incredibly sincere and shows a sound very similar to Mineral. As i've read before, and i totally agree, the Emo bands in the old days are those who have really grasped what the style means and how it should be played with heart and soul. I just do not give a higher rating for this album because i listened to other Emo records today that stood out in terms of inovation.

Pepper Kona Town
Pepper is a band that is part of the quietest and softest moments of my life. "Kona Town" is part of this, but at the same time it is the band's best work for being loyal to its genre, as well as giving an atmospheric and climatic feel at any opportunity. A perfect band for any summer playlist.
Pepper No Shame
"No Shame" has its limitations, but it's a symbolic disk in my life. I presented this album to my girlfriend in 2015 and the songs that are in it, were part of the best moments of my life in that year. Every time i jam this record, the memories and sensations come back to my head. I will never get tired of listening to this, even if it is not great things in the musical aspect, it is a record that reminds me of how good it is to be happy in this life.

Pig Destroyer Phantom Limb
"Phantom Limb" is a step back in comparison to its predecessors, but incredibly consistent and violent. Pig Destroyer has had the unfortunate downfall that many Grindcore bands have had in recent years, getting the best records early in their discography. The art of the cover even deceives in relation to the sonority, in "Prowler in the Yard" the band was very direct according to its message.

Not to evil and obscure as Seepia, but it doesn't dissapoints. High points to the drum work and the incredible atmosphere that drags you down, in a good way. As i use to say, this is like the soundtrack of satan himself.
Portal Vexovoid
"Vexovoid" is just another usual and consistent work from Portal. I find all the obscure conception fantastic in both the songs and their distortions, as in the way the band members dress. It sounds like a sound from the depths of hell, which frightens the first few times, but then it becomes like a glue in your ears. One of the best bands i've discovered on this site.

Primus Sailing the Seas of Cheese
I always liked Primus because of their bizarre theme, differentiated sonority and absurd videos. The music and instrumental quality of Les Claypool are not far behind, as perhaps this is the best bass player i've ever had the pleasure of listening to in life. "Sailing the Seas of Cheese" is the cherry on the cake for all fans of a style as peculiar as Funk Metal, containing many classics and showing to the world that the bizarre has room in the mainstream.

"Paranoid Delusions/Paradise Illusions" is intense. I'm not a big fan of the cover art, but i wouldn't be a hypocrite to downgrade my rating because of it. The record plays well, and does not require the presence of the bonus track. The songs that have the same name of the album are thunderous and really significant in the band's catalog.

"DAYTONA" is one of the best Hip-Hop albums of the year, with a lot of melody going from Soul to the darkest of the genre. We can already see Pusha T with other eyes, since it has been some time that he stands out in the musical scene.

Ryan Adams Love is Hell
"Love is Hell" is a great example of how Alternative Country/Rock can adds Folk, Indie Rock/Pop and all aspects of acoustic music. Ryan Adams is a great musician, with a impeccable discography and great hits on his resume. Listening to the sound of this album, i have the feeling that this would be the result if Elliott Smith was a musician of this genre. Incredible and diverse, it's worth listening, but pass the cover of Wonderwall, it's a good cover but i do not know... i do not like Oasis, so judge me.
Ryuichi Sakamoto Async
Saba Care For Me
Saba is one of the great musicians that has been appearing within Hip-Hop. The artist managed to highlight in a very clean and natural way. All the essence that the style has, influenced by other bands from the 60's to last year are here. "Care For Me" is a good request for anyone who likes artists like Sampha and Oddisee. The feeling is of good fruit that will be harvested in the future.

Senses Fail If There Is Light, It Will Find You
"If There Is Light, It Will Find You" is the first Senses Fail album i listen to in full, and the impression of the work is the best possible. I know the band since my childhood and i used to listen to one or another song, i did not intended to and did not wanted to listen more than that, since i did not like the genre very much in that time. The last release is a beautiful combination of Pop-Punk and Emo, bordering on the underground at times and being very commercial in others. The songs are original and show the consistency of the band, which has always used the same success formula without becoming generic or repetitive.
Sepultura Chaos A.D.
"Chaos A.D." marked a new path for the band within Groove Metal. Leaving Thrash Metal almost completely aside, Sepultura ventured with Brazilian tribal influences, among other aspects that were also used by Pantera in "Far Beyond Driven". An almost perfect and controversial album at the time of its release. The only thing that bothers me the most is Kaiowas and Biotech misplaced in the middle of the songs, but apart from that, Sepultura has created a job well beyond his time.

Silverstein When Broken Is Easily Fixed
Sometimes i remember the times of 2006-2007, seeing myself as an Emo boy with particular problems of self-esteem and self-assertion. And when i listen to a record like "When Broken Is Easily Fixed" this is even more concrete. The lyrics and melodies are absurdly emotional and with the definitive face of what was the Emo music at the beginning of the 21st Century. Always good to revisit songs and childhood memories and see how much you have evolved. I'll always carry bands like Silverstein for life because of this.
Silverstein Dead Reflection
The first few times i listened to "Dead Reflection" were not pleasant. I saw one of the bands that i like the most, getting into ways that appeal to please the public than just being loyal to their own identity. However... i was mistaken this week after listening to this beautiful album again. "Dead Reflection" has everything the genre needs right now, and it's definitely a type of musical work that grows inside of you over time. Being more reflective with obvious absorption power, Silverstein is still at the top of their own game.

I confess that my first minutes with "Kold" were much more of discontentment and doubt than sound satisfaction. Some genres need more time in my mind to be absorbed in the right way, and i think this happens with Solstafir. From the middle to the end, i enjoyed the whole symphonic and somber idea imposed, but it still didn't convince me to the point of raising the quality of the album even more. Even so, by now we can say that the final product is well above average, even more so by the size of the work.

Sport Slow
Sport is a band from the new generation of contemporary Emo, coming from France. Theis sound is sincere, well-crafted and full of sentimental values. The evolution is clear and it seems that the band seeks a place of more prominence in the genre. For the moment there is little to be said about the future of the band, but it is fine to say that "Slow" is one of the best "common" Emo albums that are available today.
Spyro Gyra Carnaval
Stormtroopers of Death Speak English or Die
"Speak English or Die" is one of the most complete Crossover works. Being a genre without many innovative options, having Scott Ian as one of its creators, caused to S.O.D. built a definite historical milestone in a style with a select and small group of bands. The only problem here is the great amount of songs, with a short length.
Strung Out Twisted By Design
Strung Out is a band with few lights and well forgotten works within the scene of Punk Rock. Other more famous bands like NOFX, Pennywise and Bad Religion always took all the attention that they could have received back in the 90s. Even so, Punk Rock seems to be a genre that features the best albums coming from little-known bands. And this is what "Twisted By Design" is, simple, to the point, and almost perfect in its conception.
Strung Out Exile In Oblivion
Strung Out Songs Of Armor And Devotion
Suffocation Human Waste
An incredible and very consistent EP from the early years of Suffocation. Some of the songs on this album are also included in "Effigy of the Forgotten" which is the best work of the band, in my opinion. The only difference is the raw sonority and the less elaborate production, which even gives more sense of a classic Death Metal album than the rest. It is worth checking.
Suicidal Tendencies Freedumb
Sun Kil Moon Benji
It seems to be routine to say that all musical works that come out of tragedies and elements involving death, are musical masterpieces, or almost so. But how can i argue in other words, if artists like Mount Eerie and Sun Kil Moon always prove it? "Benji" is that much, and the celebration of death being something that should be treated more naturally. In addition, it is so sincere, showing ways to deal with pain, emphasizing the feeling for good things that life can provide.

Surra Tamo Na Merda
Surra, is a Brazilian Crossover band that mixes many elements already found in the Discography of Violator and Ratos de Porao. But what happens here is an accumulation of anger amid a political and social scenario in Brazil, which is evident in the speed of melodies and in harsh lyrics. Being a record of total criticism of the political system of the country, and of all the scandals that impact the social spheres in general, "Tamo na Merda" is a good acquisition for those who really enjoy music with heavy political content. A curiosity, is due to a song that makes irony the 2014's Brazilian soccer squad, and the 7x1 episode.

This may be the best record of their career, but there are some choices and that "spring" sound in the middle of one of the songs that really bother.

The Color Morale Know Hope
I understand that "Know Hope" is not so interesting and innovative, but i feel a close relationship with this work, much more for the time of my life than i discovered, rather than affinity for the band. In the old days i used to listen a lot of Miss May I stuff, and my ears end up being somewhat limited to more respected bands. The Color Morale acted on a step above and this surprised me a lot at the time i first heard "Know Hope" back in 2014. Nowadays i listen more for nostalgia and enjoyment, even if i understand all the limitations.

The Dillinger Escape Plan Live Infinity
The Dillinger Escape Plan Miss Machine
"Miss Machine" is the first work with Greg Puciato in charge. The sound is very similar to the best work of the band, but already pulling a little to the mainstream. The Dillinger Escape Plan is a band that has never managed to make a really bad album, but their best are at the beginning of the trajectory. "Miss Machine" is a good comparison with what Hardcore was before them and what it is afterwards. Absurdly innovative and influential band, the scenario will always be lacking.

The Republic of Wolves Shrine
"Shrine" is a very good, comprehensive, immersive and complete work by The Republic of Wolves. It seems that the band has idealized a kind of sound that stands out for its sincerity, and the final product is even better than planned. This is the type of record that improves over time and that is sure to grow inside you. It's worth a few more listening, enough to rate this record one of the most incredible of 2018.
The Roots Things Fall Apart
The Saddest Landscape You Will Not Survive
"You Will Not Survive" is all that Pianos Become the Teeth has always wanted to be, and even managed to at times, but failed to keep in thar direction. The first time i heard the name "The Saddest Landscape", i thought directly about Emo's stigma, but i was caught by surprise to hear the whole play. The sadness was transformed into anger, and the lightness became speed and intensity. A big surprise lost in time.
The Smiths The Smiths
The Story So Far The Story So Far
The Story So Far is another usual band that started to follow the same path as many others, from Pop-Punk to the contemporary Emo, and in my opinion, it worked out very well. The s/t is a great example of an ordinary record, but with delivery and emotion. You can feel in the voice and in the melodies that everything that was written is the result of emotional events from some member of the band.
The Swarm Parasitic Skies
"Parasitic Skies" is one of the best things in the history of Hardcore. Unfortunately, it took a long time for me to become aware of The Swarm's existence, and that's sad. Many current bands of the genre receive a lot of attention for little originality. The Swarm is one of the forerunners of what is now Trap Them and All Pigs Must Die, and they deserves all respect and recognition for their influence.

"Tommy" is the forerunner of the opera strand that Rock has barely explored until today. Being also considered a soundtrack, the album is only The Who showing they class and evidencing they musical gifts. I have never seen the movie but i have a lot of desire, and this is very due to the presence of these songs there. However, many tracks end up wishing on an album with four sides and a lot of unnecessary melody. Even so, it was a great bet in a decade of bands that risked little in the scene.

Thy Art Is Murder Hate
"Hate" is just another record full of violence, speed and hate from Thy Art is Murder, and this will always be very good. With an almost perfect discography as far as Deathcore is concerned, this band always matches all the hype imposed. Even in a super-boring record as "Holy War", the band managed to create good moments in flashes of little creativity. Listening to an album like "Hate" is to give credibility to a genre full of forgettable bands.
Thy Art Is Murder Dear Desolation
"Dear Desolation" is Thy Art is Murder's best studio album, and the best release of the genre in 2017 (along with Fit For an Autopsy's "The Great Collapse"). The first half of the album is superb and shows a great diversity, CJ McMahon is in more shape than i could imagine. However, the second half is quite repetitive and this has knocked over my rating. Summing up, the record is fantastic and has few flaws in both production and lyrics.

Tim Buckley Goodbye and Hello
The Buckley family is known for their great time-honored musicians who left us early or for drug abuse, or for a unexplained fatality. Tim Buckley was well-known in the 60's and 70's for his characteristic Folk influence, which was even mixed with the sound of Brazilian Tropicalia and Woodstock's conception of peace and love. Considered by far the best album of the artist, "Goodbye and Hello" is a lesson in Folk to be used as an object of reflection.

Tom Waits Alice
"Alice" is one of the best records i've heard this year, much more by the composition of the instruments and the great creative ability of Tom Waits write their stories. But when i listened to "Everything You Can Think" for the first time, it made me want to get on a plane and go in with this little musician to get answers. This song is stupidly good on the soundtrack, but the vocal grunting and screaming spoiled what could have been one of his greatest works. But let's not blame this great musician who still walks the same field of mortals.

Toxik Think This
The criticism of the media and the whole communicative corporation is very intense here, living up to the style and legacy of the band. One of the best albums in Thrash Metal history, "Think This" is not perfect because of some screams that sound from a band of Hair Metal and the little appeal in the weight of the instruments, that would marry well with the concept of the songs.

Tyler, the Creator Bastard
Tyler, the Creator Wolf
"Wolf" is an album that i've always liked. The melodies are fantastic and prepared my ears for everything that Hip-Hop can provide. I've never been a genius addict, but in recent years i've been increasing my musical tastes and Hip-Hop is one of the most fantastic and genuine out there. Tyler took a while to mature as a lyricist and human being, which is normal by today's standards. The lyrics are very poor and the album is a bit long. But musics like "Cowboy", "Awkward", "Answer" and "IFHY" make the disc a classic OFWGKTA.
Typhoon (USA-OR) White Lighter
"White Lighter" is incredible, and perhaps the Typhoon's work that i liked the most. "Offerings" was the first i heard from them, and i found it a bit overrated, even though i need to pay more attention. Awesome band.
U.S. Girls In A Poem Unlimited
"In A Poem Unlimited" is incredible, sincere, soft and absurdly fun. Entertainment and lightness were some of the prevailing sensations in my brain throughout the duration of the disc. The attention that the band receives is still very scarce and not in keeping with its quality. Take a listen.

United Nations is a band with fantastic musicians from other bands even more incredible. The sound design, coupled with the cover art is really unique. I confess that i laughed at the first instance, but in a friendly way about it. I'm not a big fan of the Beatles, and this provocation is kind of absurd, and pretty clever. Also, "The Shape of Punk That Never" is a great tribute to Refused.

Violator Scenarios of Brutality
Violator is a Crossover band that integrates the underground scene of Brazilian political music. Their criticisms are clear to the Brazilian social scene, without hiding names and always giving names to the oxen that are responsible for the national calvary. "Scenarios of Brutality" is a good choice of fast, great quality Thrash music and impeccable production for a band with little financial support.

Watain is a band well despised by the fan base of Sputnik and other sites, precisely because it has a sound without salt and very generic. But it seems like this is a poorly placed judgment. "Lawless Darkness" is a fun work and it takes a while to get bored. My soundoff does not try to do justice to this band, but there are much more reputable bands like Mayhem and Gorgoroth, who have done much more pitiful work. But life is this, each with your opinion.

I love the Yellowcard sonority, even considering their discography the most genuine in the history of Pop Punk. Not only because of my childhood and adolescence, Yellowcard has always proved their value, and this has almost always come about because of Ryan Key. In "Thirteen," we have a few songs we've heard being tried on a few past albums, and it is pretty damn good. Ryan continues in his prime, even after the Yellowcard is gone.

Winterfylleth The Hallowing of Heirdom
I never listened to Winterfylleth before, and i'm certainly surprised to hear "The Hallowing of Heirdom", but not for the best reasons. I looked for the sound of this band to hear something atmospheric and symphonic inside Black Metal, but i came across with a very consistent dark Folk album that contains practically no element of Black Metal. The record is really fantastic and a good path traced by the band, but being in a terrible moment of my life, the sound annoyed me and made me sadder, for its slow, melancholy and dark sonority.rEdit: 3,8.

"Noise" is a very good, complete and well-written EP. It's only six songs and a total of seven minutes, but the size of the fun i always have when listening to this record is really incredible. Maybe the best EP of the genre? Correct me if i'm wrong.

$uicideboy$ My Liver Will Handle What My Heart Can't
Trap has become popular for its beats that differ from conventional Hip-Hop, but also for presenting a new side of Emo that is not linked to Rock or Hardcore. "My Liver Will Handle What My Heart Can not" is an interesting album in this vein, but with a very appealing name and design. Even so, you can feel a dimension of what it wanted to be, with some feelings more genuine than others. In the end, it is worth checking.

Alice Cooper From the Inside
"From the Inside" is my first adventure within Alice Cooper's discography. I found it very interesting to see a work by a renowned artist that is almost never remembered, but which is still very interesting. The more gothic footprint and the dark aspects almost lead the album to ecstasy, but on the second half the problems begin. The attempt to make a big hit means that leaves the album mellow and forced, and this is a shame. Anyway, Alice Cooper is still out there making quality music.
Alice in Chains Rainier Fog
Alkaloid Liquid Anatomy
"Liquid Anatomy" has its great moments, some because of its great capacity to create innovation, and others to use established formulas in different ways. The problem is that the record does not hold until the end, seeming more like an effort to have long songs. These even lengthy songs do not feature original content until the end. Unfortunately Alkaloid's latest work falls on ostracism and people's need to think the music is going through good times in 2018.

"The Madness of Many" seemed a great improvisation masterpiece with individual quality of each musician in the first time i listened. The years went by and i don't know... this album bothers me a lot. Being very condescending, long and without much melodic alternation, "The Madness of Many" is just an album with a lot of improvisation that does not marry with the concept. I may be exaggerating, but this work is quite disappointing compared to what the band has already done.
Anthony Green Would You Still Be In Love
Anthony Green is an artist renowned for his solo career, his work at Saosin and at Circa Survive. I had never heard anything from his solo albums, so with "Would You Still Be In Love" I had my first experience. The tracks are very sad, with lyrics drawn to a feeling of suffering. You can understand that the feelings printed on the album are of the musician's personal struggles, even if we do not know it at first. I didn't like the melodies on here, besides the voice that is a bit out of harmony too, but other than that, it's a good album to listen to and reflect on.

Autopsy Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves
"Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves" is just another Autopsy album. There is no innovation and no progressivity in comparison with their old material, but that is quite acceptable and normal for a band for so long on the scene. Some songs are incredible and with a senseless absurdity, but at least half of the album is pretty boring and lazy. It's worth listening to, but it may not be the best album to start listening and getting to know the band's sound.

Contrary to what i commented about Cult Leader, Baptists is a band that already enters the scenario of Chaotic Hardcore in a more reserved way. This cost a lot on the quality of the band's sound, which looks more like an uninspired All Pig Must Die record than a consistent, precussive work. And that's a great shame, since "Bushcraft" has his moments of glory, but these same moments share ground with the generic area of Hardcore.

"Automata I" is another hit in the discography of BTBAM, which was already expected. But if we talk about the songs, and how they unfold to catch the attention of the listener, it seems shallow and sometimes annoying. Even if it's only six songs, and a first part of an already established project, i was a little disappointed with many moments of the album. Progressive Metal seems to have condensed in my mind, making "Automata I" just a average record.

"Blank Banshee 0" is quite good, showing an even more lively and varied side of Vaporwave. The first songs are fantastic, all filled with samples of songs that we have known from other times of life. Everything the style proposes, is well elaborated by Blank Banshee, but we have a big problem here: too many songs. The album is playing and playing and one hour you realize that everything here is a bit boring and dragged, and this is a big mistake of the genre, not by the artist. Even so, "Blank Banshee 0" is one of the best albums in the history of Vaporwave.

Blessthefall Hollow Bodies
I used to listen this record almost every week some years ago. Hollows Bodies, Deja Vu, See You on the Outside and Youngbloods are the highlighs here. Good music, but it's ok to admit that they made a step back on the quality of their sound.
Blessthefall Awakening
Awakenings is a great album that blends melody with heaviness in the same time. Not their best, but very listenable and original before their dubious recent work.

Brockhampton SATURATION
It's undeniable that Brockhampton was the most successful band of 2017, attracting a huge amount of new listeners to their music. With a trilogy all released last year, the Hip-Hop "boy band" has already established their style and has shown that their music... is just regular. Nothing against this new strand, but it seems that their debut album has a hard time sustaining itself to the end. I didn't listened too much of the three albums, but as i've already heard them, i can see that the first album in the trilogy is the weakest at the moment.

Burial's first LP is incredible and gloomy at its best. However, i have a little problem with this album. In the same way that there is impeccable music in it, it also has boring and saturated songs. The record is still a landmark of dubstep, but comparing with "Untrue", it is impossible to give a better rating than this.

We can say that the last decade was the worst phase of Cannibal Corpse's career. Changing the sound just ahead of the years 2010, "Evisceration Plague" is a great example of a band exhausted in what it does, even if with excellence. The fathers of Death Metal hardly make mistakes, but sometimes they almost get there. On a record with this conception, having the best song that mixes more Doom and Sludge of Death Metal, is because something in the path of the disc has been poorly elaborated. Anyway, nothing like a good respite from a few years to get back to good phase.

"Broadcasting" is a very competent album, but with clear signs of lack of inspiration. Hardcore may be simple, but it must re-create itself by bringing in new elements and sonorities. This ends up happening three years later with "Symptons + Cures".
Converge The Dusk in Us
The first times i've listened to "The Dusk in Us" i admitted to myself that the hype i created about this album had been accurate. The months went by and i continued to listen to the songs sporadically. Today i listen to the latest release of Converge and see that the songs are more boring than exciting, which i had noticed in several previous comments. This work has a good opening range and holds up well halfway. However... the rest is difficult to listen to and you have to like this album a lot to get in "Reptilian" without wanting to change the band in your shuffle.

I searched for "Mental Vortex" to listen in one of the biggest animations of my life, especially in the Thrash scene.

I've listened a few more times and that feeling is gone by now, but i still feel that this Coroner's work is still going to grow a lot in my concept. Maybe it was not the right time of my life to bet on the sound of these folks.

All the influence of the lyrics and beats of "Black Sunday" are out there and it would be hypocritical not to recognize the impact that Cypress Hill has inside Hip-Hop. But in my first experience, i felt that the beats (which are incredible), failed to sustain many repetitive moments and voicelessness. It seems that creativity ended up in the production of some songs and many of the lyrics were repeated for minutes as if it were a huge chorus. I wish i had liked this more, but at least i have to admit that the cover art is scary for its concealed design.
D.R.I. Thrash Zone
Darkthrone Arctic Thunder
Darkthrone The Underground Resistance
"The Underground Resistance" is the Darkthrone venturing once again into a different style. The presence of Crust-Punk and Chaotic Hardcore strip the whole Black Metal identity, which was to be expected in this transition phase. I always like to point out that it's not every band that can really venture into other genres, and i see that Darkthrone has failed in some ways. "The Underground Resistance" has good songs, but in general, they come together to create an average album.
Darkthrone Circle the Wagons
"Circle the Wagons" enters the discography of Darkthrone as another unsuccessful attempt to enter Punk with quality and relevancy. Maybe i need to take a more diverse look at the material that covers other genres from them. My journeys on these albums have not been very good, always thinking that the identity crisis has taken over the band.

"Gore" is an evident step in a period of short stagnation of the Deftones in their trajectory. Even though this is not the end of the world, the album shows the clear lack of creativity and lethargy in some tracks. It's not a disaster, but it's not an album that stands at the feet of the others. A lot needs to be worked, but with the capacity and all the legacy already established, it is ok to expect a masterpiece in development. "Hearts / Wires" is incredible, just to make it clear.

After seven years, one of the most important bands of the genre returned to the active. Even though in a discreet way, Despised Icon returned with an insane speed, with pig shouts that are spectacular and a technique that has always highlighted the whole. The hip-hop style adopted in the clips is still hilarious, to be honest.

Devourment Conceived in Sewage
"Conceived in Sewage" is the same disc, with the same conception and the same brutality of the entire Devourment discography. But even so, it's fun to listen to a dozen times and that's it. Nothing more to add on this album.
Disentomb The Decaying Light
Down To Nothing Life On The James
"Life On The James" is nothing special, but neither is just another Hardcore record. The sound shows how a Hardcore album really should be drawn. Crusty, snappy, fast and straight as a punch to your face. Down to Nothing is a devalued band and don't know the reason behind that. But with this record, at least they have the name marked in the genre attached to the quality and intensity of the music they work.

Expire With Regret
"With Regret" is Expire's third studio album and the third above average. However, the sonority didn't evolve in comparison to its predecessor, and it clearly to see that the band begins to stagnate in the style. I do not believe that Expire will make the same mistakes like other Hardcore bands, but in a saturated style it is important to diversify the nature of sound.
Expurgo Deformed by Law
Extortion Sick
"Sick" is cool, violent and full of hatred. Extortion tries, but it seems they suffers with their own demons of creativity. Powerviolence is not very diverse, being very honest, but that does not prevent the band risking more. All their discography, even if fun to listen to, seems the same song only with some different notes and alternating drum lines.

Forus is a Punk Rock band from France that is well aware and competent in what they do. But it's a pity that bands with so much potential, follow the same path as their recent partners, making the mistake of great bands of the genre and consequently falling into oblivion. "Lights" is incredible and worth checking out, but it's worth the message and the reflection for a genre that has unfortunately been digging its own grave.
Four Tet Sixteen Oceans
Four Year Strong Rise Or Die Trying
"Rise Or Die Trying" is a genuine Pop-Punk record and we can't ask for anything more than that. Many people may feel bothered with the cheerful and sometimes childish sound of the band, but that's exactly what they want you to listen. Good songs like "Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die" and "Maniac (R.O.D.)" add an extra taste to the likes of Hardcore fans. The cover art is pretty good too, but the highlight of this work is the name of the songs.

"Moonlover" was a work presented on its release date as the answer to Deafheaven's "Sunbather", and perhaps THE band that would split the musical scene next to that one. Unfortunately, the abuse of a voice more grunted than acceptable, and many dubious melodies, have made this record a failed attempt to enter into a new world that was recent discovery. "Golden Number" is one of the best atmospheric songs i've ever heard in my life to be honest, but what happens here in addition? All the waiting that appeared after "Moonlover" was torn up in "Starmourner", but that is not the focus of the discussion right now.

I have a big problem with Gorgoroth, that is, the production of almost all the albums of the band. I understand that they are influencers of a whole genre, but it seems that investing in this Black Metal jargon in having a gruesome and raw production does not work here. If "Under the Sign of Hell" is the most special moment of the band, I think I'll stay away from work like "Destroyer".

"Mic City Sons" is a sweet album with no commitment whatsoever and that shows itself much more like a work of friends who come together to make music, than a serious work around that. Heatmiser is no longer among us, but they provided us with the best thing that ever happened to the music, namely, Elliott Smith. I think it's interesting to mention how some of his songs stand out from the rest, and his comparison with other artists is quite absurd.

Immortal Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
Immortal is a band that appeared in the midst of incredible scandals that the Black Metal scene already had. Unlike bands like Mayhem and Emperor, the band led by Abbath refrained from only making music, showing its relevance much more for its sonorous qualities, than for the extra field. "Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism" is a valid debut and is very entertaining to listen to, it has nothing so relevant, but it is influential by its cover art and its diabolical conception.

Infant Annihilator The Palpable Leprosy of Pollution
A satire album that is actually more fun and complete than many of the genre. The band, even if bizarre and some senses and themes that mock the Deathcore, make the style even more attractive. A type of album that i like to hear many times and that motivates me to do exercises, even if it's kind of stupid to say that. A beautiful work of entertainment.
Integrity Howling, For the Nightmare Shall Consume
Almost impossible to label this album only in one genre. The diversity is quite impressive, but sometimes annoy. It's a great listen, but the long tracks don't keep up to the entire material.

I listened few things coming from the genius of Jack White, many of them from the White Stripes. I had no expectations for this album, especially by not consuming this type of music so much. But the final product is very interesting, showing a musician that seeks more influences in other sound fields in which it does not dominate. The critics are clearly misplaced.
Jamiroquai Dynamite
Janelle Monae Dirty Computer
There are certain genres that are difficult for me both in the matter of absorption and to debate, since i feel dumb about it. This is the case of "Dirty Computer", for example. Judging by her voice, Janelle Monae shows that it can be said that this is another great album, presenting herself as visionary and well qualified in what she does. I just feel that this record has not evolved inside me yet the way it should be.

Korn Issues
"Issues" is solid and consistent, however, with creative flaws that make the album lazy on the second half. One of the most influential bands of the genre, Korn is also one of the most criticized for their dubious works. The 1999 album is a great example of this, walking on the edge of quality and the lack of details.
Krisiun Black Force Domain
La Dispute Vancouver
"Vancouver" is good and with a lot of fun, but it looks much more like a regular Glassjaw record than an authorial La Dispute project, and that was what bothered me the most. I'm a big fan of the work of both bands, but songs without identity end up annoying me a little. Even so, it took me a few years to listen to this EP and i found it really cool.

Magrudergrind II
The second "big" release of Magrudergrind is a drop in quality and sound output compared to their predecessor. With a clear influence in the genre, the band was expected to maintain the aggressiveness and their characteristic brand. But that is not what happened here. The album is far from being bad, but it is worth listening only a few times and then trowing in the bottom of the chest to listen again only in the future. Warm and ordinary, nothing exciting.

Even if it has a "party" sound and is fun to listen to at a BBQ with your friends, it's pretty obvious that 80% of their songs sound the same. "Massive Aggressive" tries to escape a little, but in the end it becomes another common work by this band, that does not present any sound disaster, but that is well forgetful during your life.

Nick Cave has always been a musician who showed a very sober, morbid and melancholic face to me. This kind of feeling comes true in works like "The Good Son". Although i don't like the opening song very much, even though i'm a Brazilian from birth, i see that Cave's big problem was the placement of the songs and the call for repetition of the chorus and some heavier and more mellow vocal lines. Other than that, the record is valid and composes well a discography that is almost flawless.

Ought Room Inside The World
"Room Inside The World" is regular. With many Post-Rock elements and many clear influences from other classic bands of the genre, Ought was able to release an ok album that is cool and fun to listen to. But the sound may sound kind of boring over time. Nothing disastrous, but nothing to celebrate.

Palm Reader Beside The Ones We Love
"Beside The Ones We Love" is a concept album that opens other horizons for the Melodic Hardcore scene. References to other bands are here, and this is very audible in "Stacks" which is a clear tribute to The Dillinger Escape Plan. But... i was not very convinced by the band's sound, and i hope to change that in the next week listening to their latest release called "Braille".
Palm Reader Braille
I thought that i might be surprised with the latest Palm Reader release, but it seems like i have some blockage to the sound of this band. There is nothing abysmal here, and i think that criticism does not fit in relation to the production, melodies and the delivery of the band. What i can comment on is that "Braille" is just another forgettable album that i listened to in my life and that's it.

Ratos de Porao Século Sinistro
"Sinister Century" was a long time in development, which established a certain expectation on my part. We can say that half of this feeling was filled, but the other packed in very weak tracks. A pioneer of many genres in Brazil, Ratos de Porao has always been at the top of his international field game, and making an album with message and strong instrumental at that time and with their ages, is praiseworthy.
Ratos de Porao Anarkophobia
The contents of Ratos songs have always been polemical and extremely critical of capitalist and authoritarian systems. In "Anarkophobia", this is already clear in the cover art, with some Nazi symbols composing the framed character's t-shirt. Music goes for that too, but it's a bit boring on the melodic issue. The band was at its peak and "Brasil" shows a lot of that. Perhaps because of the comfort of their boastful position abroad has made "Anarkophobia" not so shocking that it was planned at that time.

Rise Against The Unraveling
"The Unraveling" is the beginning of the most original and authentic Punk Rock band of the 2000s. Rise Against was for a long time my favorite band, but this was not due to "The Unraveling". This album may have been harder to absorb into my musical palate, but over time it has been incredible for its variety and competence. I really like what the band did here, even admitting that this does not put the album among the best of the genre, but rather, one of the most valued the roots of the band.
Rise and Fall Our Circle Is Vicious
"Our Circle Is Vicious" is only flawed at times by being very repetitive. In such a "common" genre, bands must reinvent themselves, seeking new atmospheric sounds other aspects that can diversify the final work. And that was not what happened here, unfortunately.

Rotten Sound Murderworks
"Murderworks" is just another ordinary and intense work from Rotten Sound. The band that followed the footsteps of Nasum, conquering European lands within the Grindcore, never failed delivering their sound, but never managed to surpass the quality imposed in "Exit", the best album of the band. A smaller rating would be fair, but DOOM's introduction in the music of the same name goes up the album in concept.
Rotten Sound Abuse to Suffer
In some respects, certain types of genres need to match their sound with other influences that do not necessarily have to change the loudness already imposed over the years. That's what Rotten Sound has been up to since the release of "Exit", the band's masterpiece. The songs are there and they seem to really characterize the band sonority, but there is no evolution and enthusiasm. In addition, production is one step below the rest of the material. Even so, it's a fun album and worth checking out.
Ruby My Dear Brame
Computers develop artificial intelligence and created an album that looks like an endless cyber war. What absurd was this that I just listened. Damn.
Runaway Brother New Pocket
"New Pocket" is fun and keeps getting better as the songs go by. I believe that in my first experience with the band, the last tracks were the ones that surprised the most, which caught my attention. The sound and the melodies are not very innovative, but that's ok.
S. Carey Hundred Acres
"Hundred Acres" has a well-validated idea behind sound, but saturated. The first part is fantastic, but over time, the melodies did not synchronize with my mood and it was a bit tiring to listen to the end. Otherwise, the songs are solid and worth checking out.
Sacral Rage Beyond Celestial Echoes
Samiyam Rap Beats Vol. 1
"Rap Beats Vol. 1" it's quite enjoyable, and serves as ambient partying sound or in a particular moment of relaxation. But that's it, which is really a pity, giving a sense that this work could have provided a little more.

Signs Of The Swarm The Disfigurement Of Existence
"The Disfigurement Of Existence" is intense and well differentiated, being sometimes a very well done Slam, and a Metalcore that resembles the best phase of the Martyr Defiled. The blast beats are very characteristic and imposed at ideal times. There is all the development of calmer moments that follow others more intense and hateful. Signs of the Swarm is a good Deathcore band to watch out for.

Silverstein Rescue
I must have listened to "Rescue" every day for about three months in 2011. I've always been fond of songs like "Medication", "Burning Hearts" and "Forget Your Heart". Time passes, and the biggest test for music is if some albums age well or not, and in the case of "Rescue", unfortunately that was very negative. I used to establish this record as the best of the band, but this definition goes to "Dead Reflection" that will surely have a much longer quality life.

I think that the name of this album explicitly says everything about it. In spite of having beautiful songs, and some of that have become icons of the band, like "Wind It Up" and "Out of Space", the first LP of The Prodigy is really an experience. Being experimental, you cannot characterize all the quality of the set at the time, but shortly after the release of "Experience", everything else is history and legacy.

"Sister Cities" is another example of a Pop-Punk band that has sought other sound horizons focused on reaching other audiences. This type of initiative will always be valid, however, it should be borne in mind that the band needs to know their limitations in other genres. The Wonder Years made their name as one of the best Pop-Punk bands in the last decade, but now that they mixes the sonority with other genres, they took a not so considerable step as it has done previously. But as soon as life is on, bands always start from somewhere.

"Idiot Proverbs" is a nice and simple album that convinces without forcing any subject. Even if the sound is not the most original, the disc gets better in its second half. Some influences from other Indie bands and a bit of Nirvana are audible throughout the songs. Even if it's an album that will not be remembered by the end of the year, it's worth listening at least once.

"Crown Feral" is VERY exciting in its first half, full of new strands inspired by other bands. The problem, is that the second half is very weak, discouraging even for future releases. Trap Them has one of the most striking sonorities of current Hardcore, which joins with the absurd live performances of his insane frontman. It's worth checking, but it's a shame to see that there is a creative block that caught the band from achieving something more.

Vince Staples Big Fish Theory
I think after nearly a year of its release, i can already consider "Big Fish Theory" one of the most overrated albums of 2017. I don't know... i didn't feel something so magical coming from such a talented artist this time. Vince Staples is on the prowl and will certainly make new, much brighter jobs. "Big Fish Theory" is forgettable to me, even if it is not a disaster and has few but good compositions.
Volor Flex Tramp
The similarities of "Tramp" with "Untrue" are staggering. In many moments, the quality stood out, showing that Volor Flex is a relevant name in the Dubstep/Garage scenario. But unfortunately, the album gets boring and condensed from the middle to the end. Some beats are very similar to the Burial, making it look like a act of plagiarism or just a tribute if you see the good side. The record is good for listening in moments of reflection, but it doesn't even come close to the work that is inspired.

The Whitechapel's problems have always been very evident. It's no wonder that this band is criticized so much. "This Is Exile" runs away from this by presenting some good songs, and perhaps the biggest hits the band has ever made. But the stumbling block still remains with the blast beats misfit, the guttural screams that do not shiver and the production that takes away all the originality of the album. Despite all this, "This Is Exile" is not a disaster and can be quietly heard from beginning to end, even with its obvious mistakes.

Antigama is a band that has always had great potential inside the genre, but it seems that the whole promise was not just rumored about the quality of the band. I confess that i'm not a fan of the band's sound style, although i find "Meteor" a very consistent and fun job. The problem with "Warning" is the appeal of sound weight and speed that do not marry very well in some moments. The plastic and overproduced sound bothered me.

The singles of "To Drink from the Night Itself" were no longer very encouraging. A lock took over me, and i soon subjudged that this album would be a disaster. Well... it's not, but neither is anything too encouraging. The impression that remains, is that "To Drink from the Night Itself" should have been released at least 20 years ago. With the concept of Melodic Death Metal in other pillars, At the Gates lost his hand in his music.

With the release of "Beacon of Faith", i already understand that Baptists is a band with no identity of their own. The guys can't even hide the size of the influence Converge has on their sound. Influencing is not the problem, the mistake is when the band creates a work almost equal to who they mirror. Nothing against it, i find the record very fun because i consider Converge one of the bands that i like the most, but it is a pity to see bands with potential to play out what they can really do for the genre.

Burzum Sol austan, Mani vestan
"Sol Austan, Mani Vestan" is an album totally focused on ambient and atmospheric sound, and this is how it should be seen and evaluated. It's not surprising that Varg would take his project to that path, since himself commented that after "Belus" he would return his vision to other musical concepts. Seen in this way, "Sol Austan, Mani Vestan" is a medium-sized album that presents a dry and moronic atmosphere, giving a feeling of being in a cold and silent game. Nothing else, the album is just an acceptable complement to Burzum's discography.

"Because the Internet" is much of Childish Gambino and little of Donald Glover.

The potential is lost with the passing of the songs, which are tiring and very normal to the standards of a musician with many qualities. The joy is to see that this sonority was in his past, and that now we can expect beautiful fruits from this great man.

Comeback Kid Outsider
Fun and reserved like any other Comeback Kid stuff. But after five releases and almost no innovation, the band's sound is starting to sound a little suspicious to me. "Turn It Around" is a record that has always captured the spirit and soul of Hardcore, "Wake the Dead" is what presented the classics and "Broadcasting" has begun to show the band's weaknesses. "Symptons + Cures" raised the concept of the sound of the band, but then... "Die Knowing" was released and the problems resurfaced. "Outsider" is far from original and unforgettable, and that's a shame.

CZARFACE and MF DOOM Czarface Meets Metal Face
Regular and fun, the collaboration between MF DOOM and Czarface is valid and far more compelling than Metal Fingers collaboration with Bishop Nehru. But... there's not a lot going on here.

Efrim Manuel Menuck Pissing Stars
Efrim Manuel Menuck is one of the founders of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, one of the most acclaimed bands of recent years. In his second solo album, Menuck tries to give life to an album that seems to have been played for production without even having soul. Almost half of the material is composed of synthesizers and ambient sounds that do not convince and give more sleep than anything. Even so, some transitions are very intelligent and give a little autonomy to the rest of the album. A very forgettable piece from someone so relevant.

Decent and normal. Comparisons with Deftones are a little overdone, but that's fine. The sound is very similar to some bands like Citizen and it is very light soft until its end.

Fu Manchu Clone of the Universe
"Clone of the Universe" is just another Stoner Rock album. It does not show anything new, it does not innovate in any sense, but it is still good and fun to listen to. The album does not open another future path for Fu Manchu, but it also does not despise the importance of the band in the genre.
Fugazi The Argument
Year after year and i'm still strugling with myself to understand this band. Fugazi may be the most important and well-known band in the Post-Hardcore history, but "The Argument" is just meh. Some songs are identical to some Indie Rock aspects and the bass line is not so exciting. I'm so frustrated with this... maybe someday i'll understand how good this band is.
Gadget Remote
"Remote" was one of the few records of the genre i listened to and i couldn't demonstrate any feeling. It seems that the work is totally soulless, really being what i felt from beginning to end. It does not have a consistent delivery from the band and this has greatly compromised the final product. The lack of success at a time of "boom" for genre is well explained if you listen to a record as salty as this. However, i don't think i can label this Gadget work as bad.r

Good Tiger We Will All be Gone
"We Will All Be Gone" seems much more a new album of any other band, less from Good Tiger. Lack of identity and scarcity of ideas is clear here. If someone cheated me saying that Dance Gavin Dance had released a new album and i listened to this, I would think about the time that was theirs.
Gorduratrans Repertório Infindável De Dolorosas Piadas
Gozu Equilibrium
"Equilibrium" is a virtually irrelevant release that does not support any groundbreaking quality within Stoner until its last track. What really holds that record is the track "Ballad of ODB", which is a musical absurdity of more than 10 minutes and that really brings a sprinkling that Gozu could be a better band.

Heart in Hand Only Memories
Heart in Hand is a band with a very short path on music and little success within its underground scene. Extinct after controversy with their vocalist, the band's best work was their debut album "Only Memories." But even with the clamor of fans and criticism, i was more bored and sleepy than excited when i listened to the record.

Joji In Tongues
I like Joji, and i understand that he wants to leave the Youtuber life and Pink Guy stuff in the past. Trying to evolve and mature ourselves is always very valid, especially in musical terms. The problem is betting in what is fashionable, like these Soundcloud rappers who live singing about their sorrows that are not always true. Joji shows maturity in his production, but he needs more effort. "In Tongues" is flawed in many things, even if it is not a disaster. From this wave of new artists, we can give him a free hand, maybe we end up surprising ourselves, right?rEdit: 3.0

Judas Priest Firepower
I definitely dislike Judas Priest, and i cannot stand the vocals of Rob Halford. I've never been a fan of the biggest hits either, and i've listened to the band's works a few times. As my opinion is shallow and with little knowledge about the band's discography, i only get my first and only impression of "Firepower". Boring.

Kimbra Primal Heart
Not much to speak about in regards to "Primal Heart". I'm not a fan of the style and it's really hard for me to listen to an entire record that includes all the elements of Pop. That said, i add that this word is ok and that since i don't have much to support my arguments, i give this Kimbra record an average rating so as not to contradict me.

Maruta Remain Dystopian
Maruta is a band that looks much more like other bands than itself, and that's really a problem in a genre that needs diversity. "Remain Dystopian" is fun and certainly the best record of the band, but when i listen to Grindcore stuff and Maruta is not one of the 20 bands that pops up in my head, i realize how disposable their material is, and that's a shame.

Miss May I Shadows Inside
"Shadows Inside" is a relief for the fans of the band, even though i don't find their previous works a total disaster as anyone else in here. It seems that Miss May I suffers a lot because of their fan base and the criticisms regarding their sound that is sometimes very produced and generic. I agree that the band has some identity issues, but i still hope for an above-average work that will hardly come in the future.

Nervus Everything Dies
"Everything Dies" is an album with so many influences from the Alkaline Trio that it becomes annoying. I've always enjoyed Matt Skiba's early work, and the legacy is all over the Pop-Punk bands that popped up after them. Nervus seems to be still discovering themselves, making their first release much more a tribute to Alkaline Trio than a record of his own.

Oceans of Slumber The Banished Heart
I didn't like the progressive instrumental mix with the vocal alternations on "The Banished Heart". The record is completely condensed and cannot be sustained because of the quality imposed in it. Another problem is the size of the job, which goes over an hour and it is really tiring to get to the end. Without taking away the merit of the band or the innovative attempt to establish themselves in the genre, but the end product is nothing more than ok.
of Montreal White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood
Indie Pop is not my favorite musical style, nor what i usually look for to listen. Sometimes i listen to some bands and it surprises me, the extent that the songs give in the moment i listen are really great. But "White Is Relic / Irrealis Mood" did not get into that, unfortunately. Some songs are very long and dull, even if it does not compromise the production quality.

Mixing religion with other arts and concepts has never been a good alternative. In my humble opinion, religion turns out to be a field that works by itself, mixing doesn't work. Perhaps, if it is more discreet and used as background and inspiration, it will certain result in success. In "Kingdom Days In An Evil Age," there is a great appeal for this part, making the great instrumental quality blend with mediocre lyrics that praise Christianity and its beliefs.

Teddy Lasry e=mc²
Tegan and Sara The Con
Sometimes, Indie Pop is very boring and commercial, being directed to burst in the radio stations and in the local clubs. The vocals always look the same, and the sense of plastic joy with forced melancholia come together to form a sticky melody. Tegan and Sara have their concept and good works, but just the best of them, is what bothered me the most in these concepts. "The Con" is audible and fun at times, but on many occasions, it shows up as a summary of all that is bad this genre.

A good album that mixes some elements of Metalcore, Grindcore, Hardcore and Poweviolence. It has its essence but at the same time it seems to have no soul. Even if you listen to it in his entire, it does not seem like there's a willingness to revisit the album at times. It becomes generic in some points and seems to be more a celebration of other bands than the appreciation of its own sound.

The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza Danza IIII: The Alpha - The Omega
Totally incomprehensible the absurd amount of negative ratings. We are not listening to a masterpiece, that's for sure, but this is not a shit that has no meaning at all. "The Alpha - The Omega" is acceptable for what it provides, it has its nonsense moments with twists and attempts to convince that do not help, but even so, it is far from being a despicable album. At times the band wants to just improvise (in a very bad way), but at other times, it shows its quality without much effort. Average record.

Turnover Magnolia
Turnstile Time and Space
"Time and Space" is the first album i listened from Turnstile, and my current reaction is total disappointment. The insertion of new instruments, moments and moods throughout the album is clear and well valid, but it does not convince. The instrumental and production quality is almost perfect, but it does not save this record from just being regular.
Ty Segall Ty Segall
After listening to Foxygen, i saw Ty Segall as a related band on Spotify. The chosen one was "Ty Segall", a work so promising but at the same time without a real flavor. It seemed that something was going to pull the songs to a higher level, but that feeling always appeared at the end of each track. I don't know, something bothered me here, but I can't specify it. I need to check out the rest of the discography to come up with a more elaborate opinion.
Umbra Vitae Shadow of Life
Underoath Erase Me
"Erase Me" was a surprise when it was announced, but many already knew that the result might not be so good after a few sabbatical years. The first half is very tiring, not engaging or even holding to listen anymore. But what really saves is the second half, which presents a nostalgic version of a band that seeks innovation in a new field that does not yet have the knowledge to act. It is worth checking for the affection with the band, but it is very disposable.

Walter TV is a band that i look for in the Homeshake related in Spotify. By the way, the band is very unknown there and here, but it's still the beginning of their trajectory, even if it does not mean much. The songs are just ok and cool sometimes, but there is nothing to be remembered or celebrated here. What Homeshake is, Walter TV is still not, and with "Carpe Diem", we have a lot more ball out than an initial hit.

I confess i've never heard anything like "Exodromos" inside Death Metal. But that's not why i consider this album a great feat in the genre. It would be pretty hypocritical if i also say that the record sucks. Maybe i didn't love the sound in my first time with this record, but i can certainly admit that the genre needs more bands who risk themselves like Wormed.

Chelsea Grin Self Inflicted
To be quite honest, Self Inflicted is not a total disaster. Chelsea Grin is a band that strives on delivering poorly crafted breakdowns and childish lyrics. Every release is a new hope that they can improve, but none of that materializes. The point now is in your own enjoyment, because knowing that the band will not look better than it is, you should evaluate for the level of entertainment you will have listening to it. In my case, a below-average rating lives up to that job. Nothing disastrous, but nothing to be remembered in the future.

The songs always sound the same, with the vocal appeal and some instruments that do not marry well in the final product. What is the reason behind this band that make them so celebrated with each release?

Moose Blood I Don't Think I Can Do This Anymore
Even though the instrumental sounds quite amusing and appealing to the ears, the problem of "I Don't Think I Can Do This Anymore" is evident. The lyrics are weak and deal with the same themes that almost no one is interested. Over time, it seems that even the sound is compromised and unoriginal. I didn't listened to the rest of Moose Blood works, and i really believe they are much better than this album. But it is true to say that i have feeling of discouragement with this band now.

I don't know the 'persona' of Post Malone and i have no knowledge of why he is so hated today. But in relation to his music, it seems that he even lives up to this imposed fame. "Beerbongs and Bentleys" was a long awaited album, from what i read here, but jesus... what a dull thing to listen to. There are 18 songs in here, and 17 of them are basically the same. Post delivers a acoustic song too, which is totally disposable. To be honest, the first track is pretty good, but when it started to be recycled into other songs, it bothered me a lot.

I don't understand all the criticisms and positive comments about Amorphis latest work. "Queen of Time" seems like any symphonic work that uses Death Metal as a backdrop. There is nothing to be celebrated here, it is always the same gooey and super produced sound. The impact is nonexistent, and the urge to sleep overwhelmed me at the moment i listened to this record. I don't have a hatred for this aspect of Death Metal, but it seems that nothing creative or entertaining comes out from here.

The "experimental" model adopted by the band, consisting of half dialogue and the other instrumental part is a complete disaster. The sentences articulated by Henry Rollins do not pass any message and try to convince the fence of the figure of the typically American father. Some passages are hilarious and even make the cover of the album lose its impact. The instrumental part is more acceptable, but totally changes the positioning of the band in the genre. Greg Ginn's solos are pathetic.

I don't know.... i've never been very much a fan of Breaking Benjamin and i've never been so interested in hearing much of them. With the release of "Ember" i countered my own will and gave this band a chance, and i regret it. 36 minutes of my day are in the trash. Listening to a album so generic and weak musically gave me even the desire of never checking out future releases from these guys. What a disgrace.

I really tried, and since 2011 i've been listening to some of the band's releases. But as usual, "The Spark That Moves" is another useless record that didn't evolve inside me and that made me feel more bored than anything.

Cripple Bastards Nero In Metastasi
Unfortunately, it seems to me that is more and more evident that Cripple Bastards is a band of just one album, that is, "Misanthropo a Senso Unico". A being of laziness, lack of inspiration and sound logic take over "Nero In Metastasi" in its entirety. This is sad... talent and creativity wasted.
Daughters You Won't Get What You Want
Death Grips Gmails and The Restraining Orders
Destroyer 666 Call of the Wild
"Call of the Wild" fails on all the quests, and does not give the feeling that it could be more than that. The band lost their identity in some songs and it is difficult to decipher what it they really wanted to be said here. In addition, even with just four songs, the mood is lethargic and lavish. Totally disposable and forgettable.
Dr. Octagon Moosebumps
I'm not an expert on Hip-Hop, knowing all the variations and beats the style provides like Fantano's reviews, but it's noticeable that "Moosebumps" is a failed attempt to go back to time in a classic way. "Dr. Octagonecologyst" is fantastic and certainly a milestone that is set forever. However, Dr. Octagon's two last attempts to reach the same level were flaws. It seems that he and MF DOOM suffer from identity crisis, but at least the latter is still able to make good beats. Edit: "Flying Waterbed" is pretty good to be honest.

inspiration and creativity.
glaswegians severance
Gods of Mount Olympus Gods of Mount Olympus
What bothers me the most here is the introduction of all the songs. For example, "Cops on Saint Andrews" has a terrible beginning but it manages to save itself as the music evolves. Besides, the record is very forgettable and does not animate much until the end. Being an EP of five songs, saying that seems long to be well condensed is not a exaggeration.

J. Cole K.O.D.
Recently, J. Cole has received a lot of criticism from the industry and from his fans, since few of his works have claimed the hype of anyone looking for quality Hip-Hop. I never understood that, since i didn't heard anything from him. But today i listened to "K.O.D." and now i really understand why he is so criticized. It's a shame because you can see that he has ability and could be more than he is, but instead of thinking like that, he keeps trying to be Kendrick Lamar.
Jay-Z Magna Carta... Holy Grail
Justin Timberlake Man of the Woods
Tired of showing off his music skills, Justin Timberlake makes a record full of songs to be played on the radios and on open channel advertisements. Completely uninspired and with a musical recycling that defines the word "atrocity," Timberlake begins his self-deprecating trajectory. Collaborative tracks do not make sense and will never do on this genre. "Man of the Woods" is another nail in American popular music that has been suffering from highly dubious releases in recent years.

Manic Street Preachers Resistance Is Futile
I've never listened to Manic Street Preachers and i have to admit that i really need to check out the first records by these folks. My experience with "Resistance Is Futile" was a disaster and i don't think that i'm about to listening to this record again. I don't know how to explain it in words, but everything i feel bad inside Rock, i have found it here.
Marduk Frontschwein
Marduk suffers from the same Dark Funeral syndrome on some occasions. What is the point of making the same album, with the same themes and the same intonation over and over again? "Frontschwein" may sound good to the newcomers, but it is another album that represents the meaning of meh. I like Marduk's work, but it's these kinds of records that make me want to avoid some things in the Black Metal scenario.
Melvins Pinkus Abortion Technician
Melvins has been trying venture themselfes in que world of innovation for some years. Like many bands that have been inside the music for a long time, i see Melvins as a group that suffers from identity crisis, and that has been searching for other horizons that do not fit in their sonority. "Pinkus Abortion Technician" starts well and brings a sense of nostalgia, but with little time already bores and seasick your ears. Not to mention the cover of a totally expendable Beatles song that makes the album descend even more in innovation and creativity.
Meshuggah Contradictions Collapse
Millencolin SOS
Miss May I At Heart
I don't think that "At Heart" is a completely disastrous record. But there is something here that bothered me greatly from beginning to end. The lack of creativity and maybe the laziness of the band in trying something new, resulted in 13 songs that have no soul and no one even talks about it. I've always liked Miss May I, but it's records like this that distanced the band from a nice posture within the genre.
Moby More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse
Motley Crue Dr. Feelgood
Mumford and Sons Delta

Of Mice and Men Cold World
Orphaned Land Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs
The Folk mix with Progressive Metal does not really please me at all. The production and the instrumental work, even if praiseworthy, do not animate me and make me want the end of the album as soon as possible. I do not have much to say about it, but my assessment does not match the quality of the record or the genre. What happens is a proper block for this type of style.
Parkway Drive Ire
"Ire" is one of the biggest disappointments i've had in my life as a guy who listens to music every day and has it as passion. I was not prepared for this record, even more so with the existence of the "Atlas", which in 2012 left me almost deaf of so spectacular that it was to listen to it at maximum volume. As it was something unusual, i even avoided for some months any song of the band, as a way of expressing my "mourning". Today i can even listen to some of the songs that are here, but listening to the whole album is still impossible, since the complete work is a piece of shit.
Pennywise Never Gonna Die
Pennywise is a band of great significance in my life. I know all their songs and even the year of release of their records, but now, the feeling i have is sadness. I believe the real meaning of the band's sound died in "Land of the Free", after that, everything that followed was very generic. "All or Nothing" showed that innovation is good for the band, and even the departure of Jim Lindberg was essential to that. Today the band is neither a shadow of what it was, and "Never Gonna Die" is just another repetitive, non-innovative album by a band that releases songs with no other meaning behind it.
Pianos Become the Teeth Wait For Love
I did not expect that. Pianos Become the Teeth is one of the best bands of my youth, helping me to spend a few moments with their emotional melodies and the characteristic screams of the genre. The change is natural in bands of this style, but in the case of "Wait For Love", border on the disaster. Everything is wrong here. The songs look like one, the cover is horrible and the concept is pretty generic. Finally, the album looks more like an uninspired split from Citizen with Tigers Jaw.

The Faceless In Becoming a Ghost
"In Becoming a Ghost" is a joke of extreme bad taste and certainly the worst album of Metal released last year. Nothing works here, everything is bad structured and dubious, even giving me more sensation of laughter than of sonorous satisfaction. The only thing well done here is the production on top of the blast beats, and if it was not for that, i would give a virtually null note to that work, or i would spare my time writing this soundoff. Ridiculous.
The Plot In You Dispose
This was the first time i heard anything from The Plot In You and the result is not pleasant. I don't know... i didn't feel anything special listening to "Dispose". Everything seems pretty lazy and lethargic here. Certainly one of the worst of the year so far.

Turbowolf The Free Life
Stoner Rock's happy side does not convince me. In "The Free Life", i had the impression that i was listening to an album without inspiration and soul from Wolfmother. That is, my first experience with Turbowolf was uncomfortable with these details that always disturbs me in some ratings: The lack of originality and the predominant domain of laziness.

I bought this album a while ago and I realize now how I threw my money in the trash. It's obvious that he has the impact and influence on both Thrash and Black Metal, but this is weak in every way. Sounds like Manowar trying to being a Satanist band but forget that it has neither quality nor attributes to at least fit the genre.

Sometimes we have to learn to separate the artist from the human being. I am one of those people who hate some people because of their prejudiced and deplorable attitudes, but i can still separate when i listen to an artist or see a movie. I had this in mind when listening to XXXTENTACION for the first time. Despite being a despicable human being, it is plausible to admit that the guy knows how to make a few songs. But overall, his first LP is almost a disaster, except for some fun, even depressing songs. Conclusion: Avoid.

A Perfect Circle Eat the Elephant
Not being a fan of a band like A Perfect Circle is a real pleasure in this moment. I'm putting myself in the place of who really likes the sound of these guys... these same people who waited 14 years for a new album. The wait was long, and with it appeared the doubts. The lamentable cover art came to the public, and so, the music emerged. "Eat the Elephant" is another watershed in the band's discography. In my humble opinion, this is one of the biggest pieces of crap i've heard this year. I feel sorry for those who waited so long, it seems that sometimes Maynard James Keenan likes to insult his fans.

Blessthefall has been dropping production as shit on the toilet since "Awakening." It is clear that the band is not revolutionary and not one of the best of its kind, but during their career they managed to make good songs that blended heavier elements with some melodic vocals. The big problem is that the band got lost and stagnated in the past without being able to reach other horizons. "Hard Feelings" is very bad, really. The disc does not have a good song, and is absurdly produced with a stupid quantity of synthesizers that don't worked really well. A record to forget from a band that seeks oblivion without realizing it.
Burzum Daudi Baldrs
"Daudi Baldrs" is very strange, showing itself as a lost element in Burzum's discography. All the songs look like uninspired versions of game soundtracks like Age of the Empires, Skyrim and DOOM. Without any creativity and even in a annoying way, Varg Vikernes managed to do his worst complete work in "Daudi Baldrs". Revisiting this record in the future is neither a option... so i prefer to listen to the noise of my shit hitting the toilet than that.
Creepmime Chiaroscuro
A poor atempt to make a good Progressive Metal album. Creepmine is well-known to be one the best bands of the Death Metal scene in Netherlands, but these dutch folks are almost unknown in the prog scenario for a reason.

Escape the Fate I Am Human
Being honest, i hate everything that Escape the Fate has done since "Dying Is Your Latest Fashion", saved by one or another song that is no more than just "ok". Always when i listen to an entire record from this band, it seems like i lose 50 minutes of my day looking at the wall. The songs of these guys do not arouse any feeling inside me, neither of hate nor of contempt. Even so, i repeat that i detest this band that has been able to release songs so soulless for 12 years that it's hilarious... and maybe that's the only feeling i can arouse inside me in the future.

Parkway Drive Reverence
Honestly, i had no expectation that Parkway Drive would make a good album that would even reach the feet of "Deep Blue" or "Atlas". However, i was amazed to hear the whole record, and realized that they managed to overcome "Ire" in mediocrity. The band does not even care about their fans anymore, joining the genre of Dad-Metal. So in the future we can expect this band featuring with Creed, Five Fingers Death Punch and Limp Bizkit at Rock in Rio. In the end, "Wishing Well" is the only above average song in here, and if it were not for that, this disk would be a solid 0.5/5.0.

Rotting Christ Rituals
"Rituals" is hilariously bad, and this is very much because Rotting Christ really confuses what music is and what is ideology. As if it were a satanic mass, the band try but cannot even get close to a sound product. The record is so bad that i didn't even want to finish it entirely. For those who really like Black Metal or this band, the correct thing is to avoid.

1.0 awful
Afgrund The Dystopian
In just two months of 2018, we already have the worst record of the year. Afgrund is not a great
band, but this is a joke. Everything is repetitive, generic and widely boring. But it's unfair
asking much from a band that has as their best album "The Age of Dumb", which is just another
forgettable Grindcore album.

Devouring Humanity Eradication of Living Human Shit
My first impression of "Eradication of Living Human Shit" earlier this year was disastrous. I listened again and my surprise is that this record sounded even worse than the first time. I don't know, i'd rather not even get into the technical discussion, but i see that the production and inspiration of the band destroyed all the potential that the album could have. Of course... we're talking about Slam, which is usually dubious, but that does not justify creating such a bad record.

Lil Peep Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1
I tend to do justice to bands and artists who have criticized works. I always try to understand the critics, and if they are mistaken, i give my version of what i absorbed. But that unfortunately didn't work out with "Come Over When You're Sober." The record is pretty bad, the songs are soulless and with a very uninspired vocals from Lil Peep. This is really sad, because at times i wanted to like his music. It is clear that he will be better known for having died of overdose at age 21, than by his sonorous quality. This is a pity.

Robb Flynn forgot his real age and acts in this album like a big cry boy. The worst work of the band doesn't work in both genres and is extremelly painful to listen in his entire. Also, more than a hour of this shit? Are you serious, Flynn?
