Enter Shikari Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible
I'm gonna stray away from too long of a soundoff here because I'm wading into uncharted waters. But Enter Shikari's latest release is both a delightful amalgam of ear-pleasing electronics and a sharp social commentary. It's almost too preachy and perhaps a bit artificial sounding, but it's accessible yet challenging.
Envy Abyssal
Abyssal is a landmark EP for envy. Though they truly began to adopt post-rock themes and sounds in Insomniac Doze, Abyssal represents envy owning and conquering what would become a hallmark of their sonic palate. The atmospheric quality so characteristic of envy's work is most apparent in the 10 minute long opening track, where harsh vocals reminiscent of the band's earlier days mesh with shimmery, distorted guitars. These are followed by gentle cleans delivered in the almost-spoken word style that came to define Tetsuya Fukagawa's singing when he wasn't pummeling the listener. A keystone of everyone's favorite screamo band's discography.

Flourishing The Sum of All Fossils
Despite having listened to this the whole way through at least half a dozen times, I always expect TSoAF to be a crush-fest befitting of a group sput tags as dm/industrial. Then as T1 rumbles into T2 and Flourishing's unique take on TDM betrays its prog, doom, and punk influences, I marvel at the unassuming depth of sound on this record. It's this blend of genres that makes TSoAF such a rewarding listen, and one that makes the Ulcerate comparisons seem a tad forced. Flourishing have their own sound and they execute it cleverly here. Or, if you prefer, just listen to Fossil Records instead of reading my pointless soundoff.

GoGo Penguin v2.0
A lovely exponent of modern jazz a la Mammal Hands: complex rhythms and interweaving melodies with a splash of easy-to-listen-to paint on the surface. This record definitely falls into the oft-targeted "works well in the background or as a close listen" category.

Ihsahn Arktis.
Ihsahn crafted a superbly experimental, beautiful, and sometimes unsettling record with Arktis. back in 2016. One of the most continuously surprising (and I mean this positively!) aspects about this record is its accessibility given Tveitan's clear intention of producing a disconcertingly conceptual album. This record is consistent in its inventiveness (for black/prog) and admirable for how many new ideas there are from song to song while still retaining a fundamental similarity. Ihsahn leaves his indelible creative mark on each song, and no one else could make an album like this work.

Johann Sebastian Bach The Masterpiece Collection: Bach, Vol. 1
This hour-plus jaunt through some of Bach's most well-known works captures that which etched his name into the halls of perpetuity. Among the globally excellent performances, Dubravka Tomsic's performance of the Italian Concerto is a highlight: Tomsic's graceful playing and sense for drama plays up Bach's baroque sensitivities and sets a high standard for other pianists to follow. This record would measure up higher, but the canned production drains just enough vitality to constrain Bach's compositions a tad.

Mammal Hands Shadow Work
Mammal Hands' strongest effort, in my opinion. Their sound is more captivating, more ethereal, and smoother than before. The record grips an active listener and soothes a passive one; i.e., I spin it when I'm working, before I sleep, or just as much on a long drive when little else occupies my mind.
Mammal Hands Becoming
Becoming is a superb example of Mammal Hands' trademark avant-garde yet smooth jazz. Instrumentation is tight yet flowing, compositions are harmonious and precise, and production creates a well-rounded and full-bodied sound. At a greater length, Mammal Hands could craft an even more remarkable album, but they do earn their 4 well.

A finely performed tribute to Rudresh's self-proclaimed masters.

A purely enjoyable, easily listenable, overall super fun record from beginning to end

Thank You Scientist Terraformer
TYS shoulder high expectations for good reason, and they mostly delivered with Terraformer. The almost inconceivably long runtime is surprisingly not much of a hindrance here, as the band stay quite engaged with their craft the whole time. TYS maintain their sound well and don't experiment much, which is perhaps why this album doesn't reach the highs it could have. That being said, Terraformer is a wonderful record with some truly superb tracks that belong in the top tier of TYS's discog.
The Algorithm Brute Force
Brute Force is pure fun. It's chaotic yet calculated, ferocious yet tentative, and in your face yet by your side. There's something comforting to me about the Algorithm's blend of electronic music and prog metal, perhaps because Brute Force is so contemporary as to only work in the mid-2010s. To throw another juxtaposition into the mix, this whole record both seems effortless and tortuously complicated. Won't stop banging this one till the cows come home

Dissonant and distorted, a vision of punk and hardcore for the future. I admire the Armed for their ability to push the scene forward; the album pushes the envelope and is still a fantastic listen.

The Breathing Effect Mars Is a Very Bad Place for Love
The Callous Daoboys Die on Mars
To synthesize everyone else's comments: TDEP's frenetic energy meets The Chariot's sonic palate meets DGD's humor. It's a refreshing take on a genre that ostensibly peaked years ago, and an entry to the scene worthy of notice.

The Chariot One Wing
Unbelievable, undeniable riffage. I don't believe One Wing deserves the most dazzling praise. Its ideas, while executed quite well and performed cohesively, aren't entirely groundbreaking. It's certainly a wild, joyful, ecstatic ride, but what the Chariot's final album possessed in creating a few supreme tracks it lacked in consummate consistency.

Hearkens back to older metalcore in the most refreshing way. The diversity of sounds on this album makes it a challenging, rewarding ride e.g. the appropriately placed interludes giving the listener a much-needed breather. that seems to be one of the common denominators across the album. Personal highlight is DMT Daydream, with Cancer and Cure a close second. Hoping these guys get the attention they deserve.

Toluca Memoria
Toluca's first full length release has them firing on their selected cylinders. This is an emotionally charged, atmospheric, melodic, and even well produced hodgepodge with the Russian blackened screamo group at their best. Fans of envy looking for something with a harsher edge should check this out.

Totem Skin Still Waters Run Deep
Blackened hardcore is my jam at the moment, and Totem Skin are one of the most underappreciated artists in the genre. This album is a full-on emotive assault, with the blackened vocals and atmosphere underscoring the raw power of the hxcore-influenced instrumentals. The Silent Hill sample don't hurt either
Totem Skin Weltschmerz
Touche Amore Stage Four
I really hate that I miss harsher vox on this album. Stage Four is an undeniably moving experience - as it should be, given the fact that it's a dedication to lead singer Bolm's mother in the throes of cancer. Each song positively drips with emotion, and for the studious follower of my soundoffs one could gather that I tend to find emotion in my favorite musical pieces. I do feel, though, that Jeremy Bolm held back a little here, and that prevents me from ascribing legendary status to Stage Four. All in all, though, it's a fantastic listen and work of art.

Hella Tripper
Hella fuse mathy technicality with noise sensibilities to create a persistent cacophony. The drumming is a wonder to behold, but Hella do unfortunately stray a bit too close for comfort into the wank category, and their noisiness doesn't exactly pull things back like they may have intended. To backtrack a little, though, the injection of noise elevates a Tero Melos-esque soundscape into something akin to the lovechild of TDEP and Covet. Plus, there's plenty of NorCal love to be had.

ECHT is eclectic, dizzying, and nervous, just as one would expect from an 11-piece comprising members of four French math-adjacent groups. The compositions are wonderfully free-flowing at the intersection of improvised frenzy and calculated experimentation. A cohesive narrative would propel this record to greater heights, but it's a fun, challenging listen.

This album is a showcase in fluidity, melody, and poise. Production highlights the electronic influences, heightens the record's characteristic twin vocal harmonics, and makes accessible the distinct prog rock climaxes dotting Eupnea's soundscapes. Each track is its own being yet the sound is extremely cohesive and represents Eupnea both 10 years removed from their last record and yet terrifically cognizant of where they left off sonically. I probably would have liked a bit more heaviness to balance out the light beauty, but Eupnea is still a wonderful listen.

Skycamefalling 10.21
Skycamefalling are persistently overlooked, but this album is a testament to the musical potential they never fully realized. Though 10.21 may be hampered by some poor production value and almost-tediously repetitive structure from song to song, there are flashes of brilliance throughout. Christopher's harsh vocals surge across each track with a potent, raspy vehemence, often linking up with the punky power chords Cameron employs and the punchy fills Brian uses to punctuate each track. Cameron's addition of piano invites a welcome complexity to seep into each track, but on the theme of poor production I do believe Skycamefalling hampered themselves a bit here. I feel more experimentation with song structures, more distinct fretwork, and less inhibition from Brian on drums would have opened this album up much more and allowed it to ascend into early 2000s metalcore royalty. That all being said, this is a consistently strong record with a few standout tracks and a worthwhile listen for any 'core fan.
Sleepwalker (JPN) Noč Na Krayu Sveta
Slowly Building Weapons Sunbirds
Talk about a gem that deserves more praise! The raw production values are kind of a downside, but the merciless vocals, intensifying chord progressions, and groovy drums are highlights. SBW's mix of black metal, hxcore, and mxcore is promising, and I hope a major label picks them up and amps up the production.
Snooze Familiaris
Snooze create a thematically consistent, not-too-silly work about the life cycle of a dog. Points for executing that well, but they also execute true math rock with no real frills. Vox are standout here, the songs are catchy, and the album is pretty solid. I'd like to see Snooze get a bit more adventurous with song structures in the future, but I'd be okay if they do something like this again as well.

Effigy of Nightmares is a pleasant surprise. Full disclosure, I was expecting this record to be a reasonably well done if completely non-memorable slab of gloomy black metal. Valdrin do check off quite a few of those boxes - BBs, tremolos, etc. But the riffs impart a great deal of melody, the shrieks are mixed at a proper volume, and the atmosphere is both present and dissonant.

The Reckoning Dawn is atmospheric and pretty, yet it rarely backs off from heavy riffage, powerful shrieks, and the requisite BBs. Checking out the rest of Winterfylleth's discog reveals their latest release is pretty much par for the course for one of the more prominent bands in the English BM scene. That's not to say this record is trite - far from it, as the passages are lush and packed with plenty of interesting lyrical twists and melodies to engage the listener. Halfway through May I'd say it's my album of the month, despite the lack of experimentation on the part of the artist. Title track is a beast.

Animals As Leaders Weightless
As much of an AAL stan as I was for many years, I can't heap praise onto the all-important sophomore effort the 'group' launched way back when. Weightless is even more of an exercise in Tosin's individuality as a performer than the excellent self-titled debut as he is the only member to demonstrate any sort of vitality - and even that might be overstatement. Besides an uninspired, half-digital rhythm section, Tosin's leads are occasionally gorgeous but mostly soulless. We're fortunate that AAL picked it up with their next release.
Animals As Leaders Parrhesia
The reactionary grown-up ex-Djentist in me wants to take a big giant crap all over this but it's actually..better than expected. The record does bog and the wank is obscene, but the tunes are nice and there's way more ear candy than on their last record. Plus, Red Miso is one of their best tracks in ages.

Aronious Perspicacity
Aronious flex a little too hard with this one. It's one thing to pack your album to the brim with technically accomplished riffage in the name of prog tech death; it's another to straight up overwhelm the listener with riffs on track after track. Far too often do Aronious leave the listener in the dust on Perspicacity, which is a darn shame as there is a lot of good stuff lurking below the surface here. Aronious should have cut the record in 1/2, saved some ideas for later, and polished what's left. They do have the tools to create an astonishingly brilliant tech death record, they just need to exercise restraint to get there.
Ars Magna Umbrae Throne Between Worlds
Arya For Ever
There are flashes of promise from Arya's Oct. 2020 release. The production is generally spotless, the clean vocals are wide-ranging and mostly powerful, and the instrumentals, when firing on all cylinders, are complex and well-executed. Sadly, though, this record falls short of its grand ambitions. Long, uninteresting ambient sections serve as bridges between tracks that try earnestly to stand on their own as prog metal opuses - Arya look to achieve some sort of Ephel Duath-experimental brilliance, but their meandering compositions look disingenuously haphazard. The variation across tracks is calculated, yes, but not cohesive and not part of a broader story. Overall, For Ever shows a high degree of promise, but Arya could benefit from more time at the drawing board. Oh, and the male harshes suck.

Not the worst album a young A7X could put out by any means, but a pretty forgettable slice of early 2000s hard/metalcore. If Syn featured on more than just the opener, this album could have been a little bit better or a lot worse, depending on how much Zacky V got him under control. Regardless, the Rev is the highlight of this album, for better or for worse.

Capsule (US) Blue
I hate to say it, but the post-rock/sludgy passages permeating much of the second half of this LP really turn me off. Capsule's more active hardcore sound is pummeling and persuasively powerful. The presence of melody and even a tinge of mathcore felt in the riffage (when it actually appears) distinguish Capsule's sound from other late 2000s HC pretenders. I get that the long dissonant stretches are meant to accentuate the intensity of the HC-driven passages, but they are far more effective in turning me off as a listener. That said, there are enough rewarding spans of HC goodness to save this album.

I don't like to be too precise with ratings given that my perceptions of album tend to fluctuate over time (like most people's do). This record, however, seems like it'll earn its trade in the middle 3s. The record is decently executed modern metalcore, but doesn't balance its clear strengths (harsher passages) with weaker areas (cleans). I'm not excited.

Dance Gavin Dance Acceptance Speech
This is probably DGD's low point for me. They're trying to cohere between Tilian's pop sensibilities and the rest of the group's PH chops, and Acceptance Speech fused the two into a bit of a malformed entity. There are certainly tracks that I quite enjoy here, but most of the record is poorly mixed, lyrically choppy, and unfocused overall. Still, the pieces are clearly there, and, luckily for us, DGD eventually figured out how to best pair Jon and Tilian and how not to mix Will out.

Scoot and Evngelancer's soundoffs characterize this album perfectly, though I must further emphasize how derivative this album sounds. It's certainly performed well, produced well, and packaged well. The rhythmic pacing, the soaring vocals, the extended chord stays, the underlying melodies: The Deviant produce an Opeth-Akerfeldt tribute if I ever saw one. This group clearly has tons of talent and lots of love for their scene. Let's see them throw some more creativity into their next release.

Ebonivory The Long Dream I
I was really psyched for this album. Ebonivory released a few intriguing singles over the course of a long while leading up to this record's release and my interest was more than piqued by their blend of catchy choruses and standard late 2010s prog metal tropes. This album appeared to play both to Ebonivory's strengths and my own musical tastes, but I've been let down. The transitions are rough, the new material is pretty weak, and the elongation of the singles in their album form detracts from the pure joy they communicated previously. This album's blunted impact is a darn shame, because Ebonivory had an awfully high ceiling.

Ellis Born Again
Despite a lack of variation in sound from track to track, Siggelkow's angelic voice saves the day. While there may not be a lot of boundary-pushing going on, the lilting vocal caresses entwining each track still make Born Again a rewarding listen. Perhaps she could have been a bit more emotive or separated more from her artistic influences, but Siggelkow's talent is on display and I have hopes she claims more of her own space on her next release.

Metal Mike Ted Nugent Is Not My Dad
Toothless, medium tempo, and shivering cold in the shadow of the Ramones. That said, there are some fine riffs on this early 90s punk EP. Mr. Loser's drum tone is mighty ace, Julia Allstatt's bass is plenty audible, and Metal Mike himself croons like an undead Ian Curtis when at his best. So yeah, it's a mixed bag.
Metallica Master of Puppets
I can't say much that hasn't been said by others in the camp of "Extremely Overrated Metallica record." From a standpoint of sheer influence, this album would deserve a higher rating; unfortunately, the musical appeal of Master of Puppets wears away pretty quickly. Aside from Battery, which remains one of my favorite Metallica cuts, I find a lot of this record not gripping nor all that innovative. The title track is extremely overblown IMO, and there aren't many highlights from the tracks I haven't named (except, perhaps, Orion).

Unfortunately, this is contemporary Misery Signals. Monotonous vocals and uninspired fretwork cannot compensate for a stellar rhythm section and occasional spots of emotional outpouring.

This had massive potential, but without Kurt Ballou in the studio I think these guys were far too loosey-goosey on this effort. Short tracks feel like unrealized ideas that didn't sit all the way; pinch harmonics and guitar tones are mixture of Car Bomb ripoffs and gratuitous nu metal callbacks. There's some good fun on this album but what with the release drama and inevitably too-high expectations this LP is a disappointment.

I bumped this quite a bit back in high school, partially out of my nearly blind devotion to ska at
the time and partially to flex on my compatriots who couldn't speak Spanish. The album is front-
loaded with some absolute bangers, and if the whole album were like the first five tracks I'd
probably still listen to Lagrimas y Gozos even though I've outgrown my ska phase. Unfortunately,
there's a steep decline in quality once La Colmena crashes to an end, and no matter how great
Crimen Sollicitationis or El Libertador are I can't excuse the inconsistency in quality.

Arktida На Горизонте
My recollections of listening to Na Gorizonte > 10 years ago parallel my recollections of middle school. At the time I was fully engrossed, imagining that I was graced with the pinnacle of human experience, and all too convinced that what lay before me would define my life. When these memories surface, I feel a little silly, but it's okay to indulge your inner preteen at times. Arktida's first major release does not hold up for its combination of cliches and poor production choices, but it serves as a benchmark for my taste evolution, if nothing else.

Avenged Sevenfold Waking the Fallen
Not sure if I can reconcile my own conscience with the fact that I absolutely adored this band as teenager. Returning to it these days leaves me confounded - M Shadows is a godawful vocalist, Syn is a Hammett ripoff, The Rev (RIP) is not nearly the technician I remember him being. There are definitely redeemable qualities about this album - "Second Heartbeat", to some extent "Chapter Four" - but aside from that, I'll be doing my best to absolve myself of my young sins.

Flashes of promise, but the ideas sound unfinished. There's a striking resemblance to the lesser qualities of From Autumn to Ashes here - whiny, hometown oriented lyrics; muddy production; simplistic, overcooked riffage. There are some redeeming qualities though, with a strong sense of youthful energy and a few bright instrumental passages, particularly from the rhythm section. Later Beecher fixes a lot of the mistakes from this record while maintaining the good qualities of their early work.

CHON Woohoo!
CHON Homey
I can't say I love this album, and I can't quite say it's a complete turnoff either. I get where Chon thought they were going with this - Polyphia churned out some impressive work that mixed their trademark mathy structures with some pop and hip hop beats, and Chon wanted to cash in on the action. Unfortunately, despite being a musical evolution for the group and one chock full of summary rhythms and melodies at that, this record does not do it for me, for the most part. Songs are easy listens, but there isn't a whole lot of depth. This sounds so much like Chon's attempt to conform to where they must have imagined the prog scene was headed that it makes my head hurt.
God, this was a hard rating. I was really hyped for this album, despite Chon's weak outing the last go around. I imagined their self-titled effort would become a perennial summer anthem for me; the strength of their early releases combined with continued musical growth from close buds Polyphia set my expectations sky high. Needless to say, I was pretty shocked when, even after at least a dozen playthroughs within a couple of days, I could barely list three tracks I enjoyed to a decent degree. Though Petal is perhaps one of my favorite Chon songs of all time, the rest of the album largely falls flat due to unmemorable hooks, some uninspired playing, and, most importantly, a lack of fresh ideas. Chon regressed with the self-titled. I hope my boys are okay, and that their next release proves me wrong.

Metallica Hardwired...To Self-Destruct
I mean, it was a hell of a lot better than it could have been. HtSD truly sounds like a vintage Metallica album, and given their track record that's rare praise. There are definitely some certified hits on this baby, and I find a hell of a lot more redeeming qualities to this than most of their work since the 90s. Still, though, it's a bloated effort straight from a money machine. There's not much fresh here, though there's a reasonable quantity of energy for a group of old farts. I'm not exactly disappointed overall, really, just a bit bored.

Without mentioning the big M this is certainly Trivium's worst effort. There is little of redeeming value here to this day. Trivium were confused and misguided; you can tell they have some musical talent but it's really not on display.

I rate this album poorly because 5FDP lose their souls on this album. Corporate chameleons with a hard-rock, pseudo-macho in-your-face plastic mask? I cannot abide by soulless music; at least A7X and Trivium made stuff that sounded good occasionally!
