Emperor In The Nightside Eclipse - 20th Year Anniversary
The 20th anniversary version of this album is awesome. The first disc is listed as the 'Original' mix of the album, but it sounds exactly like the remastered version that I already owned. The bonus tracks on this disc are unreleased songs (I think...). The second disc is the 'alternate mix' which seems to really push the volume of the guitars and make the keyboards mostly a backing instrument. The extra tracks on the second disc are raw versions of songs that made the album. Not to mention the packaging....
Fates Warning Perfect Symmetry
This is probably their most progressive album of their entire catalog. Its the first one with the phenomenal Mark Zonder behind the drum kit... its the second one with vocalist Ray Alder and he has improved considerably since "No Exit". This is also a notable album because it was really the last one written with full band participation and not just "The Jim Matheos Experience".
Fates Warning Theories of Flight
This sounds like what could have come after Parallels if the band had taken that album's slick, song-oriented sound in a more expanded, prog-oriented direction while stepping up the heaviness and riffs. Easily their best, most consistent and catchy release since Parallels.

I have to admit that I'm a big fan of hers, there is just something about her music and that semi-depressing style rmixed with the pop elements that I really enjoy. Also, she has a great voice that fits her music perfectly.

This album is one of my top favorite albums of all time. The only thing that keeps it from a 5 is the useless instrumental in the middle of the album... otherwise this album is pure sorrowful emotion mixed with anger, and the very cool sounding vocals... this album deserves a full review some day (as does the one after it).

I haven't heard any of the older albums because the band name is kind of stupid, and I assumed the music was just as bad,
so I can’t really say how this compares to their other stuff. I can say this one is real good. These guys remind me of modern
prog bands like Tesseract mixed with the traditional prog of bands like Porcupine Tree and Riverside, and they manage to
take the absolute best from both versions of the genre.

For those that feel like this band went off the deep end somewhere around "Be", this is total redemption. I hear the
heaviness of Entropia, the epic-ness of "Concrete Lake", the ultra-catchy melodies of "Perfect Element", and the emotion
of"Remedy Lane"... but this is better than all of those. All the youthful mistakes and Dream Theater wanking that would ruin
songs in the past is gone.

My favorite Ulver tracks have always been the ones with vocals. This whole album has vocals and it kind of mixes their Blood Inside sound with an almost 80s style synth pop sound. Definitely another new sound for them.

Damn, this album is a lot to take in. Listening to it reminds me of a mix of A Predator's Portrait and The Panic Broadcast, but with a definite Devin Townsend vibe in the latter portion. They've returned to what made them great while expanding their sound too. Great job.

4.2 excellent

Probably the most diverse and entertaining release from the guy responsible for Circle of Dust and Celldweller. There are a lot of guest musicians on the album and all kind of different influences crammed into this industrial metal release. Definitely ahead of its time.

Anneke van Giersbergen Everything Is Changing
Anneke van Giersbergen has four releases under the Agua de Annique moniker, a live album with Danny Cavanagh and guest appearances with such diverse artists as Moonspell, Devin Townsend and Anathema. Considering everything she has done over the past two decades, it might be a bit surprising to discover that Everything is Changing is Anneke's first true solo offering. What shouldn't be surprising, though, is that Anneke's first solo output is everything that her fans should expect -- proggy alt. rock, slick melodies, diverse moods and her special vocal delivery.
Anthrax Anthrology: No Hit Wonders (1985-1991)
Antimatter Fear Of A Unique Identity
Despite Deviant's low rating (not enough dubstep???), this is actually a great return to form for the band. They've brought back the female vocalist, the electronic elements and a more diverse range of sounds. Yes, it's still slow, morose and depressing as hell but anyone into this band would expect nothing else. Welcome back.
Aphex Twin Richard D. James Album
Arcturus Aspera Hiems Symfonia

Very melodic, atmospheric, female-fronted metal. They still have a bit of that 'ethnic' feel to their music and some
occasional death growls, but the mood has definitely changed. This is definitely a very emotionally cathartic release.

I only like the CC albums from 2006 forward and this is another good one. Of the four, this is probably the darkest, most technical and most varied. There's also a slight thrash feel on a lot of the riffs that I really like. Also, some of band's best solos are on here... the production on this is powerful and in-your-face, too

Cradle of Filth Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay
Cradle of Filth prove their previous release wasn't a fluke or tempered by low expectations. This one takes everything that was good about that album and pushes it through a 'Vempire'-style filter while also making what is easily their most musically dense album. Every song has multiple awesome riffs, great melodies, and (surprisingly) every song has some really awesome solos. This album definitely puts the band back at the top of their game.

Cyanotic The Medication Generation
I'm not going to dispute that people should check out Whourkr, because they really should. I am going to say that comparing them to Cyanotic isn't really relevant. Cyanotic is more of a conventional industrial metal band - they're more easily accessible than Whourkr. Whourkr is more like Dillenger Escape Plan meets Atari Teenage Riot and if that's solely the kind of industrial metal that you like than this would probably come off as boring -- but for most industrial metal fans this will be just fine.

Dead When I Found Her Harm's Way
What would have happened if Skinny Puppy had decided to explore the direction found on "Worlock" with its strong chorus and dark, gothy undertones... this album is the answer.
Dead When I Found Her All the Way Down
If you were to take Skinny Puppy's song 'Warlock' from their Rabies album and enhanced the darkness, atmosphere, and melody, you would have this album. The only reason it isn't closer to a 4.5 is because the last three tracks all drag a little bit. Still the best industrial I've heard this year.

I haven't heard the album before this yet, but at some point these guys made a comeback (it might have started right here). The music is much more diverse and memorable, and the vocals aren't the monotone mumble that they were on 'From These Wounds' and 'As The Light Does The Shadow'. This album kind of reminds me of Funeral meets My Dying Bride but with better vocals than either band had previously.

Insomnium Winter's Gate
This is the pinnacle of Insomnium's sound. The best of their melodic death metal sound mixed with progressive tendencies, acoustic guitars, and even a few black metal-ish moments. The clean singing, too, finally works for the band in a way it never has in the past. Not a single wasted moment in the entire 40 minutes.

Leprous Malina
Leprous is a Norwegian progressive metal band formed in 2001 in Notodden, Norway. They originally made their mark as Ihsahn?s (Emperor vocalist/guitarist) backing band in live situations. Don't let that mislead you, though, because Leprous don't play
progressive black metal. Their first four albums could broadly be categorized as the kind of quirky progressive metal that only seems to come from Norway, but even that doesn't describe Malina. On Malina, Leprous has dropped any pretense of simply
being a progressive metal band and opened their sound to elements only hinted at before -- mainly electronic music. It shouldn't surprise fans of the band that this has finally happened considering the band count Radiohead, Massive Attack, and The
Prodigy among more standard influences such as Porcupine Tree and The Dillinger Escape Plan.

Ignore the soundoff by narcosis80. First of all, this isn't metal or even industrial metal. It sounds like his main issue is that he saw the band name and thought he was about to listen to some kvlt black metal, and then soiled his chainmail undies when he didn't get it. Second, industrial didn't die in the nineties (although it was a high point for the genre), and of all the bands he named, only Ministry are actually broken up. So, the main thing he's missing (to answer his question) is perspective and probably deodorant.

Edit: Well since narcosis80 completely changed his soundoff we'll pretend he wasn't bitching about how he hates industrial metal bands like this one... even though these guys, once again, aren't industrial metal. It's in the metal releases because that's how the website was coded, and that's not a very good reason to take it out on the band. When you start to call it like it is, I'll remain unflustered... promise.

This is some dark and intense post metal. This album has very few quiet mellow sections and plenty of heavy dissonance. Almost reminds me of 'Given to the Rising' era Neurosis meets the darker sections of an Ulcerate album.

I'm not really that big a fan, but they definitely put on a good live show (on this particular DVD, at least). Great sound and cool songs. There is some terrible cheese attached to this DVD, visually speaking. Like all the shots of the band members looking like they're about to cry, and the multiple shots of the same two goth girl tarts covering their faces like they're witnessing the second coming of christ.

It's like a perfect blend of old school Skinny Puppy combined with the electro-pop of Ogre's previous two solo albums. This sounds more like classic Skinny Puppy than the last few Skinny Puppy releases.

Crazy. Why would they release a live album that features the original lineup of the band playing live when they haven't been together in at least a year? I mean, I can't actually find where it says it was the original lineup, but it's definitely Geoff singing and since the music isn't being fucked up, it's obviously the original players... Even crazier...it's pretty damn good. Geoff's voice actually sounds good here. He's not tring to hit all the high notes, but he doesn't sound like he has post-breakup either.

Edit: Not the 'original' lineup. It's the original lineup plus whoever happened to be playing Degarmo's parts that particular day.

Testament The Gathering
Testament Brotherhood of the Snake
If there is a quintessential album that blends just about everything Testament has done into one release, this is it. I hear The Legacy, The Gathering, Practice What You Preach, Souls of Black, Low, Demonic, and even some occasional black metal influence from Eric's Dragonlord side project. It's also good from beginning to end, which wasn't the case on their last album. The only influences lacking from this album are The Ritual and any kind of power ballad.r

I can't get enough of this album. This has quickly become the best doom album I've ever heard. It's what Funeral could be with better clean vocals and if they still used death/black growls too. The music, though, is so much better than that band or any other doom album I've heard. Its atmosphere seems to border on nihilistic. It's crushingly heavy but also has a lot of slow dark moments more similar to Neurosis than another doom band. Check it out!

Reminds me of Riverside crossed with modern Katatonia, but probably a bit heavier than either of those bands. Really good stuff.
Waldgefluster Ruinen
One of the best post black metal albums I've heard. It is dynamic and varied, and the songs actually seem focused (one of my main complaints about most the meandering post black albums I've heard). There are elements of folk, early Ulver, 90s melodic black metal, and post rock. Well worth checking out.

This is the black metal album I've been trying to find for years. Every time I heard another black metal album and was slightly disappointed and didn't know why; I know why now. This is epic without using all the keyboards, backing female vocals, or shitty productions that most black metal bands use (all or some of) in order to get their sound. Despite the lengths, the songs never feel too long and they're not bogged down by silence in the name of "atmosphere". This is just just straight-up black metal with just enough melody in the riffs to stay interesting. What else can be said, I liked their previous albums, but this blows them all away.

Circle of Dust Brainchild (Remastered)
Circle of Dust goes full industrial metal on this album. Whereas the debut was a nice blend of electronics and metal, this one is almost entirely metal-influenced industrial. Great riffs, rhythmic beats, and lots of electronics. The remaster definitely bumps up the power of the songs.

After the lackluster 'Ugly Noise', Flotsam and Jetsam have returned with a vengeance. This self-titled album takes the thrashy energy of 'No Place for Disgrace' and blends it with the riffy modern sounds of their 'The Cold' album. One of their top 5 releases, for sure.

Hanging Garden Blackout Whiteout
What a surprise. Hanging Garden were always an above-average doom metal band that pretty much played it by the numbers (ignoring their post metal sophomore release), but not this time. This takes the sound made famous by latter-day Katatonia and mixes it with some post rock and the melodic doom of Hanging Garden's first and third album. Very good.

Moody, semi-heavy, progressive metal. Definitely an album that requries a few listens to before it fully clicks. These guys' brand of prog is closer to the no-frills of Porcupine Tree or Damn the Machine than the wankery of Dream Theater. Songs definitely come first here.
The Dreaming From the Ashes
When I read that "Rise Again" was essentially a 'core-members' Stabbing Westward reunion, I expected something similar to "Darkest Days." "Rise Again" was really good, but it wasn't a follow-up to 'Darkest Days." This remix album brings the sound more in line with what I expected initially. Really good remix album that doesn't ruin the songs and actually sounds like a lot of work went into it.

Abnormal Thought Patterns Manipulation Under Anesthesia
Adimiron Timelapse
Anomalie Visions
Anomalie's debut was definitely on the primitive side of the post black metal genre, but there was something endearing about it as well. The sophomore release didn't really build on that foundation, and kind of felt like a step back -- Visions definitely builds on the band's promise. It takes the melodic post black metal foundation of the debut and expands on it to include more melody, heavier riffs, and an all around more entertaining listen without any of the dead spots that plague most post black metal music.

Great Melodic Punk featuring the vocalist from Satanic Surfers. One of the better punk releases I've heard lately.

Downtempo R&B is what we have listed on the site. Sounds close enough to trip hop for me to enjoy it. I mean, isn't Downtempo R&B going to sound almost exactly like trip hop? I guess the genre we have it classified under will make it easier to attract listeners. Whatever... it's awesome.

Another eclectic black metal album from these guys. This one is a bit more streamlined than the bluegrass/country meets black metal of the previous release. On the other hand, there are still some of those influences scattered around the album. The drumming on this is awesome.
Pearl Jam Ten
Primordial Redemption at the Puritan's Hand
I had given up on Primoridal after "Storm Before Calm", but I had been reading good things about this album and Amazon had it for $5.99 so I figured "what the hell" and bought it. I'm glad I did. This album is more exciting, less two-dimensional, and has a bit of that "Storm..." flair that I had been missing.
Pyogenesis A Century in the Curse of Time
What a comeback. Takes the best parts of their melodic death metal era and their alternative rock era and mixes them together (kind of like their Twinaleblood album did, but way better and in more equal parts). They mix it with a modern sound, punk influence and even a bit of prog. What a surprise.
Revelations of Rain Emanation of Hatred
Rivers of Nihil Monarchy
Starts out kind of sounding like typical modern death metal, but the progressive side slowly shows itself. Very good and interesting from start to finish.
Sara Bareilles The Blessed Unrest
Skrew Universal Immolation
Skrew sneak back in after 17 years of inactivity. Where was the press releases? Where were the e-mails from excited promoters? Why didn't Metal Blade re-sign them? Anyway, Skrew come back with a very dark, dense industrial metal album that pulls liberally from the modern post metal sound... and it fucking rocks.
Testament Low
The Starting Line Say It Like You Mean It
White Lion Pride
Within the Ruins Halfway Human
These guys play Djenty, techy, metalcore; that hasn't changed. They are definitely getting better and better with every release, though, and the addition of clean vocals is definitely welcome.

Generic Metalcore meets generic pop and somehow makes a fucking awesome baby.
Fear Factory Genexus
Graveworm Engraved in Black
Greywind Afterthoughts
Kind of reminds me of a heavier version of Flyleaf's debut without any screaming. Having said that, this album also seems to be a little saturated with power ballads which is why the score drops a little bit. The female vocalist definitely has some range and will probably be the point that makes people either enjoy it or dismiss it.
In the Silence A Fair Dream Gone Mad
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
Mechina Progenitor
I feel like I'm listening to the same album over and over again. These guys really are a one-trick pony. They do an ultra-melodic, symphonic industrial-death metal thing, and they do it really well... over and over and over...

40 Below Summer Invitation to the Dance
40 Below Summer Fire at Zero Gravity
After the last two disappointments, this is definitely a surprise. Possibly as good, if not better, than their debut. This one is definitely more metal than nu-metal, and the more abrasive parts could be attributed to a hardcore influence just as much as nu-metal (most of the time). The vocalist is still their number one asset.

Anacondas Gracer
Anaconda's previous release kind of reminded me of a sludgy post metal meets Fugazi. It wasn't bad, but it was kind of conventional. "Gracer" takes that same formula but makes it expands on it greatly. There's black metal influences and even djenty prog-like sections. The vocals, too, have really progressed from the Ian McKay style of the previous release.

Album number 3 of the same basic formula starts to feel a bit stale (by Anathema standards). It's still really good, but I can't say I'm a fan of the electronic portion of the album. Antimatter (which featured a member of Anathema) integrated the electronics much better.

Believer 1 of 5
Believer have always had a pretty recognizable sound, in no small part due to the unique rasp of vocalist Kurt Bachman. That technical thrash sound and raspy vocal style ran its course with the release of Gabriel in 2009. The subsequent release, Transhuman, saw the band experimenting with more pure progressive parts and a cleaner vocal style and it definitely worked. This EP is a continuation of that process, shedding even more thrash elements in favor of an angular (yet melodic) mid-era Voivod kind of sound that is almost kind of chill in its delivery. The vocals, too, have shed the last remaining thrash elements and are now completely clean. It's ambitious and they succeeded. Will definitely take a few listens to truly set in.

Death Tyrant Opus De Tyranis
Deathspell Omega Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
Decree Fateless
Defecto Excluded
Kamelot meets Practice-era Testament meets Galactic Cowboys. Huge proggy songs, blazing solos, tons of riffs and huge infectious choruses. The singer does really remind me of what 80s era Chuck Billy could sound like if he sang, ha ha.There's even some death metal vocals to accentuate the singing.
Deftones Diamond Eyes
Deftones Gore
I'm not a fan of the Deftones. I love White Pony, but most of what they do gets on my nerves because of the vocalist. This album is pretty good, though. On the latter half of the album I feel like I'm hearing a lot of Thrice and Glassjaw influences? or maybe they were copying some of Deftones' sound? I don't know, but I hear it.
Deicide To Hell With God
I expected this to suck and it didn't. I can't really say that I'm all that familiar with the band, but I seem to remember that the death vocals used to be an unintelligible gurgle and the pace of the songs ruined any cool riffs that might exist.... that's not the case this time. The growls are clear and powerful and there are actual dynamics (and awesome riffs, by extention).

Distant Landscape Insights
After "Night is the New Day" Katatonia decided to take their compact little sound and expand it with progressive and atmospheric elements. For everyone that thought that it was a good idea, but hated the actual execution, there is Distant Landscape. This was the sound I had in mind when I was reading about Katatonia taking their sound in a more atmospheric/progressive kind of direction.
Disturbed The Sickness
DJ Spooky Of Water and Ice
Doom:VS Dead Words Speak
Doom:VS Earthless
No-frills doom. These guys are finally starting to get in a groove. This album is heavy, melodic (in places), dark and slow-as-fuck.
Doomed Our Ruin Silhouettes
Crushingly oppressive funeral doom that still manages to have enough dynamics that it won't just force you into a coma.
Download Sidewinder

Draconian Arcane Rain Fell
Draconian A Rose For The Apocalypse
This is definitely a more diverse and dynamic version of Draconian. The melodies aren't as simple & repetitive and the songs aren't nearly as riffy as previous albums. Also, the female vocals have stepped away from much of the 'goth' influence which actually provides even more contrast with the death vocals. It's definitely the first Draconian album that's going to make listeners pay attention and listen a few times before it really clicks.

End of the Dream All I Am
This is just well done gothic/symphonic metal with excellent female vocals. Is there anything special or unique about this album? Not really, but it's well done without taking the symphonic element too far and the female vocals aren't annoyingly high pitched.

Eternal Deformity The Beauty of Chaos
At this point these guys are more progressive metal than black metal, but it is not entirely missing. The dark atmospheres, keyboard style and growls still play a pretty large part of each song, but the clean vocals and progressive melodies are much more prominent. This album also improves the actual songwriting and doesn't have a tendency to drag-ass like the previous one did.
Eternal Deformity No Way Out
Way more black metal than weird prog. It almost feels like a 'back-to-roots' kind of album. It's still really good though.
Ethersens Your Wandering Ghost
This is a strange hybrid. It's kind of progressive metal, kind of post metal, kind of post punk... it's definitely very rhythmic and atmospheric. Whatever it is, I like it.

Fei-Fei Pretty Girls Don't Hallucinate
Felix Martin Mechanical Nations
So, this guy plays all sorts of funky looking guitars and delivers some of the coolest instrumental music I've ever heard. It's not metal by any stretch of the imagination, but it definitely has an edge. It's like progressive rock/jazz/metal/unique shit. The twitchy rhythmic nature of the songs and the out of left field melodies just appeal to me.

So what makes this worth it? A nice, clear guitar tone that makes the riffs more recognizable and heavier. Somed solos rand extras. More powerful drum sound. An overall fuller sound for the entire album. Last, Eric's voice has aged like fine rwine. He sings the songs with the grittier vocal delivery that he started using on Cuatro while still hitting the high notes.rWhat's questionable? Mostly, the fact that they slowed down the tempo in a few places (Most noticeable in the title rtrack, but also in a few other spots). Those that love the classic 80s thrash sound will definitely be upset by the modern rproduction.

Better than their other three albums? Yes, I'd say so.

This one isn't as catchy as Fortress was, but it's definitely much more diverse and I think it will have more lasting appeal than its predecessors. It doesn't hurt that this one is also so damn riffy compared to the other three.

This is well-done electronic indie pop. The melodies, lyrics, etc never get overly poppy or upbeat and the album still manages to be memorable and hooky. Makes for a nice chill listen.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor Make A Scene
Soundgarden Live on I-5
Source Return to Nothing
Kind of a mix of Tool/Soen and Riverside with just the slightest bit of Djent. There are even moments where I can hear classic Opeth in the melodies (without the death metal influence). Really good stuff. I can see this one growing on me even more.

Alt Prog with jazz influences, to include all kinds of brass instrumentation. Kind of reminds me of Coheed meets Art By Numbers meets Fair to Midland. It's excellent, as is the rest of their discography.
The Apex Theory Topsy-Turvy
The Big Pink A Brief History of Love
The Birthday Massacre Nothing And Nowhere
The Birthday Massacre Looking Glass
The Birthday Massacre Hide and Seek
The Birthday Massacre Under Your Spell
Easily The Birthday Massacre's most subdued album and not nearly as instant as anything they've done before. This one is going to take more than a few listens to truly start getting into, which is hard to do, because at first everything seems to blend together with the same tempo and vocal delivery. It's worth the extra 'work' though.
The Bunny The Bear A Liar Wrote This
Kind of a poppy, electro-post hardcore sound with male/female vocals. People don't like it. I like it more every time I listen to it.
The Burning of Rome With Us
The Chant New Haven
Chill progressive rock. Easily could appeal to fans of Katatonia, Porcupine Tree and Anathema.

The God Machine One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying...
Due to the fact that their bass player died during the recording of this album and the band immediately stopped work on it and just released it as it was, there are some weaker moments and throw-away songs on here. Also the production is not nearly as good as the first album. What there is here, is dark melancholic music with a metallic/alternative edge to it. If you're going to make an effort to find an album by these guys, I'd suggest their first album as the starting point though.

I haven't really been a fan of Thrice since Vheissu back in 2005, and the last album of theirs that I totally enjoyed was Artist in the Ambulance in 2003. Of course, they'll never go back to that sound but this album is much better than the Alchemy albums and anything that came after them. They're just kind of chill, adult-oriented alt. rock at this point, but they're doing it really well.

Trivium Shogun
I didn't know what this whole album sounded like for the longest time because I kept repeating the opening song. Now that I've finally let the album play through a few times it's sitting between a 3.5 and a 4. Sometimes the songs seem a bit "sterile" and "planned" (I can't explain it) but overall they're still really good. One problem is that some of the choruses seem to come from nowhere and kind of lower the overall quality of a song a little bit.

There is very little in the way of "Metallica Rip-Off" on this album and they sure as hell don't have any relation to Bullet for My Valentine (they're horrible). Matt does use all his different vocal styles, but they've become stronger than on previous albums, but really it is just going to depend on whether you liked his vocals before or not...
although the thrash vocals aren't really emulating James Hetfield anymore so that is nice. I do seem to hear a little bit of Nevermore influence though, especially in the solo sections, but it's tasteful and enjoyable.

Wumpscut Fuckit
Wumpscut Bulwark Bazooka
These guys are good again. The songs are dark and gritty electro/industrial, but they're also memorable again and there's just enough atmosphere and melody to carry the entire release.

10 Years From Birth to Burial
AFI AFI (The Blood Album)
I've never really liked AFI. The vocalist used to sound like an angry chipmunk. This album is good, though. They've changed their sound to a more post punk kind of sound that reminds me of New Model Army or certain The Cure tracks. Definitely a welcome direction, as fas as I am concerned.
Agrypnie Exit
Alcest Kodama
Another great Alcest release. I just can't get into post black metal the way some people do because it always feels like the songs just kind of meander around without much direction or differentiation.
Alice in Chains Dirt
Alice in Chains Facelift
Ally Rhodes Conversations With a Ghost
Anciients Heart of Oak
Angela Martyr The November Harvest
Slow, lethargic, atmospheric doom/post rock/post metal. One of those types of albums that works better as a whole and with repeated listens. Definitely worth the time and repetition.
Animals As Leaders The Madness of Many
Annisokay Devil May Care
This is just really good, melodic metalcore with a bit of that djent feel and some good ambient-style keyboards in the background. Really solid stuff.
Anubis Gate Andromeda Unchained
Aphex Twin ...I Care Because You Do
Aphex Twin Classics
Architects Hollow Crown
Autechre Amber
It's like a car wreck and I just can't look away.
Bat For Lashes The Bride
There's something about the mellow, atmospheric side of Bat for Lashes' music. This album is full of that side and is easily my favorite of the discography.
Be'lakor Vessels
This is a very lush and atmospheric version of melodic death metal. Yes, there is double bass and death growls but I hesitate to use the word 'aggression' to describe any part of this. It's still good, but very non-confrontational.
Borknagar Winter Thrice
Borknagar have pretty much perfected their progressive black metal sound while they slowly move closer to the prog side of the house. I really like all the vocalists they have on this release.
Caligula's Horse The Tide, The Thief & River's End
Callisto Secret Youth
Melodic and atmospheric post metal. Almost feels like the album has an alt. rock feel, too.
Cannibal Corpse Red Before Black
Defintely more of an old school death metal release. It's ferocious from start to finish, but I find myself looking for the
musicianship and diversity of the previous release. This is really good, but who knows what song is on... they all sound the
Carcass Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious
Circa Survive The Amulet

Coroner R.I.P.
Coroner Punishment for Decadence
Coroner No More Color
Coroner Mental Vortex
Cradle of Filth Bitter Suites to Succubi
Cradle of Filth The Manticore and Other Horrors
Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas Mariner
Post metal with a female vocalist? Well, it definitely relieves some of the monotony I commonly associate with your average lumbering post metal release. Pretty good stuff.
Currents The Place I Feel Safest
Modern Prog/Djent/Metal. There's nothing that really sets these guys apart from all the similar bands, but the level of conviction and talent is definitely up there.
Cyanotic Tech Noir
CygnosiC Fallen
D Creation Moderate Album
These guys really kicked up the aggression on this album. Almost all of the cheesy elements of the previous album are gone, but so are the really catchy choruses and melodic prog parts. There's still clean singing and progressive sections, but they're buried under a wall of sound. Don't get me wrong, this is obviously a progression for the band (and the clean singing is much better) but I miss the 'instant' feel of the previous release too. For those that don't know, this is really well-done progressive melodic death metal. They go through a lot of different sounds and styles and it's well worth checking out.
Dark Tranquillity Atoma
Kind of a blend between Construct and Character, but leaning a bit more towards Construct. Basically a riffier, stripped down version of Construct. To me, it feels like a step back, but it's still pretty great.
Dawn Of Ashes Theophany
Aggressive industrial black metal that really does a good job of blending the best of both genres.
Delain A Decade of Delain: Live at Paradiso
Delerium Mythologie
Basically an even blend of pop and ethereal/new age electro. Reminds me of a mellower version of their album 'Chimera'. If you like that one, you'll like this one.
Die Krupps III - Odyssey of the Mind
Emilie Simon Mue
I'm pleasantly surprised. She has kind of returned to what made her good in the first place -- quirky french pop. Fuck yeah.
Engine Superholic
Enslaved RIITIIR
Enslaved E
I'm not a fan of Enslaved. I've always thought the black metal vocals were too 'throaty' and mixed too high on pretty much every release. I also wasn't a fan of the early viking phase. I was a bigger fan of their 70s prog stuff, but again with the black metal vocals. On this release, everything just seems to fall into place. This is finally the Enslaved album I can get totally behind.
Epica The Holographic Principle
Epica are easily the best of the Symphonic Metal bunch. They aren't cheesy (very often), they know how to play their instruments, very riffy, great death/female vocals, and she's pretty damn hot.
Faith No More King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime
Fallujah The Harvest Wombs
Fear Factory Transgression
Fear Factory The Industrialist
Feared Furor Incarnatus
Flaw Endangered Species
Fleshgod Apocalypse King
Epic symphonic death metal with growls and clean singing. It's really good in the moment, but it all kinds of blends together by the end.
Flotsam and Jetsam No Place for Disgrace
Funeral In Fields of Pestilent Grief
Funky DL Autonomy: The 4th Quarter 2
I'm not a Hip-hop expert or fan, but every once in awhile I'll hear an album that catches my attention. Guess I'll need to check out the rest of his discography.r
Gabrielle Aplin English Rain
Ghost Key If I Don't Make It
Really well done melodic hardcore. The coolest part of this is that the melodic parts aren't just your normal standard melodic lead. They're more of a post rock/reverb-drenched kind of thing that gives this release a unique edge.
Ghost Toast Out of This World
Very good post rock with a progressive edge. It is also very melodic and catchy without being repetitive. Another thing this album has going for it is that the songs feel like they're focused and not just a meandering jam like a lot of post rock.
Graveworm Ascending Hate
Graveworm's first few albums were pretty damn good, but starting with 'Engraved in Black' they kind of had an identity crisis. It seems that after five albums of varying quality, they have finally worked out their new sound. It's melodic death/black metal with subtle and tasteful keyboard sections that aren't trying to be metalcore or Dimmu Borgir.
Gravity Noir
Female-fronted progressive metalcore that does more than what you might expect from the combination of genres. It's just a little more musical, a little more diverse, and a little more memorable than your average proggy metalcore band.
Gruntruck Push
Hanging Garden At Every Door
Heaven Shall Burn Wanderer
Maybe a little more aggressive and riffy than they've been in awhile, but it's basically another cookie-cutter Heaven Shall Burn release. They should be capable of more, but this is still pretty good.
Helstar Vampiro
Their 80s output was bad, and their 90s stuff totally sucked. Surprisingly, though, their 2000s output has been pretty damn good. Another great technical thrash/metal release... as long as you can deal with Halford-ish vocals.
Hypocrisy Virus
Hypocrisy End of Disclosure
Imminent Sonic Destruction Triumphia
Much more melodic and traditional than their debut. It seems like they decided to play things a little bit safe this time... too safe, in my opinion. It's still a great progressive metal album, but they've lost a lot of what made their debut exciting.
In Search of Sun Virgin Funk Mother
Like a cross between Dance Gavin Dance and Tesseract. Funky, melodic alt. prog done really well.
In The Nursery Anatomy of a Poet
In The Nursery 1961
In The Woods... Pure
One of the new breed of dark, mellow progressive rock. This is the first album I've heard from these guys, but it's pretty good.
IOEarth IOEarth
Joe Satriani Engines of Creation
Kadinja Ascendancy
This reminds me of a more accessible and mainstream version of Vildhjarta. The tones and the groove are very Vildhjarta-like.
Kamikaze Girls Seafoam
Grungy, abrasive female fronted post punk/alt. rock. I like it. Throughout the album I heard The God Machine, Hum, Nirvana, The Pixies , and The Cure but it's all wrapped up in a more abrasive sound and washed in shoegaze feedback.
Katatonia The Fall of Hearts
Katatonia make their biggest leap since dropping their doom/death roots. On this album, they've jumped straight into Opeth-inspired moody prog mixed with the blueprint of their last few albums. I'm more a fan of the catchy direction found on 'Viva Emptiness' through 'Night is a New Day'.
Killing Joke Pylon
Killswitch Engage Incarnate
I'm not a Killswitch Engage fan. I'm a fan of 'Alive or Just Breathing' and 'Disarm the Descent' because of Jesse's vocals and the heavier musical direction. Their crooning, melodic stuff with the other guy bores me to death. Musically, that's basically what they've gone back to except with Jesse on vocals. He helps make this listenable, but not nearly as good as the other two releases that he has sang on.
Klone Here Comes The Sun
Atmospheric prog. Kind of like a cross between Porcupine Tree and latter-day Katatonia. Not as psychedelic as PT but not as doom & gloom as Katatonia.
Klone Black Days
Klone The Dreamer's Hideaway
KMFDM Tohuvabohu
KMFDM Strum & Drang Tour 2002
Lacuna Coil Delirium
After a few missteps, Lacuna Coil have finally regained their composure. This album takes the best elements of Comalies and mixes it with a stripped down version of what bands like Tesseract and Textures play. The best thing is that the male vocalist doesn't sing anymore. He growls and shouts through most of his parts, which is a much better role for him.
Late Night Alumni Of Birds, Bees, Butterflies, Etc.
Linkin Park Meteora
Linkin Park The Hunting Party
I've never disliked a Linkin Park album (although Minutes to Midnight came close), but my favorite was the electronics-filled 'A Thousand Suns'. Having said that, I'm not overly impressed with this but it's not bad. I guess they needed to return to a rock sound, but they could have kept some of the electronic stuff.
Liquorworks Nonsense
Liquorworks Moist Computer
Lola Blanc The Magic
Make Them Suffer Old Souls
Marty Friedman Exhibit A: Live in Europe
Mechina As Embers Turn To Dust
I'm sorry. Enough is enough. This is the same fucking thing as before and before and before. Is it good? Yeah, it's good. Is it in any way a deviation or even a continuation of their sound? No.... it's the exact same album they keep releasing. It's time to seriously sit down and figure out how to think outside of their tired (albeit good) formula.
Mephisto Walz Thalia
Mindcage Our Own Devices
Mors Principium Est Embers of a Dying World
Really solid melodic death metal with a strong keyboard presence and occasional black metal influences. Unfortunately, with few exceptions, it is largely by-the-numbers stuff.
Motley Crue Dr. Feelgood
Nachtmystium The World We Left Behind
Kind of a post black metal, atmospheric black metal kind of album. Rarely gets into really fast parts -- prefers to stick with a mid-paced kind of delivery. Pretty good.
Napalm Death Smear Campaign
Ne Obliviscaris Urn
Necromancing the Stone Jewel of the Vile
Basically Traditional/Power metal with a bit of a black metal/occult sound to it. Really well done, though.r
Nero di Marte Nero di Marte
Neurosis Fires Within Fires
I really liked them more in their earlier days when they were still using violins and horns, and the tempos were more diverse. Having said that, it's still Neurosis and it's still really good.
No Use for a Name Hard Rock Bottom
NOFX Wolves in Wolves' Clothing
NOFX First Ditch Effort
It's NoFX doing what NoFX does, and when NoFx does what they're supposed to do it's always great.
Obscura Akróasis
There's some awesome musicianship on here and it's probably their most diverse album, but they're still basically a one-trick pony.
Oceans of Slumber Winter
Kind of a blend of doom, post metal and prog with female singing and occasional male shouts/growls. There are some really good songs on here, but a few that are a little weak. I see good things for this band.
Operation: Mindcrime The Key
When Geoff Tate took on the name Operation: Mindcrime and started spouting off about a prog rock trilogy that would allow him to break new musical ground, I just
rolled my eyes. It turns out, though, that he was pretty much able to pull it off.

The story itself isn't nearly as compelling as either Mindcrime album, but the album is still pretty damn good. Despite the band name, it turns out that The Key isn't
trying to cash in on Mindcrime's sound and direction. What we get with The Key is a chill, atmospheric, prog rock album that should appeal to fans content with
the mellower side of bands such as Riverside, Porcupine Tree and, yes, even Queensryche.
Pati Yang Silent Treatment
Persefone Spiritual Migration
Philter The Campfire Tales
Power Trip Nightmare Logic
Old school thrash with some really cool riffs. The vocals could be better and all the songs are roughly similar, but it's still really good.
Psalm Zero Stranger To Violence
Gothy, electro, industrial, post punk stuff. The only thing I don't hear is what they're decscribed as: progressive rock. It's really good, whatever it is.
Psychotic Waltz Into the Everflow
Psychotic Waltz A Social Grace
Queensryche Tribe
Relief in Sleep Godspeed
This is basically alt. rock with post hardcore tendencies. The music is really well done. The band really kind of reminds me of Thera with the male/female vocals, piano, subtle electronics and very emotive angle.
Restless Oblivion Sands of Time
Roni Size Take Kontrol
I haven't really liked a Roni Size album since 'New Forms' in 1997. This one reminds me a lot of that one, and with 17 years between that release and this one, it's sounding fresh and enjoyable.
Rosetta The Anaesthete
Sadistik Salo Sessions
I really like this release. It's dark with a lot of atmosphere. I'm not a hip hop fan, but I'm a Sadistik fan.
Samael Lux Mundi
Scarve Luminiferous
See You Soon See You Soon
Senses Fail The Fire
Septicflesh Codex Omega
Serpentine Dominion Serpentine Dominion
The collaboration between Killswitch Engage's guitar player and Cannibal Corpse's vocalist. So what does it sound like? The heaviest fucking Killswitch Engage album ever. There's definitely a prominent death metal influence, but with Killswitch's guitarist composing all the songs and their vocalist writing all the vocals, it can't help but sound like a crushingly heavy Killswitch album; complete with more than the occasional clean vocal.
Slaves Through Art We Are All Equals
If you're familiar with any of his other projects, then you basically know what to expect here. Maybe a little more 'experimental' or whatever, but basically the same.
Slayer Divine Intervention
Sleepwalker and Fen Call of Ashes II: Stone and Sea
Sleigh Bells Jessica Rabbit
SMP Death of the Format
Soilwork A Predator's Portrait
Soilwork Death Resonance
I know this isn't an official all-new album, but that almost makes it more crazy because all the songs are really good. Soilwork is on a roll.
Sole Remedy Apoptosis
Definitely has an old school Riverside vibe (but with much heavier parts). Good stuff.
Staind Break The Cycle
Strapping Young Lad Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing
Strung Out Exile In Oblivion
Swallow the Sun New Moon
Sybreed God Is an Automaton
Tad Morose Matters Of The Dark
Tad Morose St. Demonius
Tech N9ne Therapy
The Dreaming Rise Again
The core of Stabbing Westward re-unite. There are definitely some Stabbing Westward elements here and should appeal to anyone that liked their brand of Industrialized Rock.
The Haunted One Kill Wonder
The Haunted Exit Wounds
The Haunted switch back to their other singer and go back to their roots. Consistent album without any filler. Great for
the gym.
The Haunted Strength in Numbers
The Jezabels Synthia
I'm a big fan of this band, but I've liked each new release a little less than the one before it. This one is still pretty great, but it is a little too streamlined for my taste. I liked the bigger risks on the first two releases.
Todtgelichter Rooms
More moody progressive metal than black metal these days, but there's still a decent amount of that black metal sound. Definitely an album that requires a few listens.
TOOTHGRINDER Nocturnal Masquerade
Kind of a tech metal/metalcore sound. Definitely more on the tech/prog side of things, though. Really good stuff.
Vestascension Breaching the Sound
Vuur In This Moment We Are Free - Cities
Winterfylleth The Dark Hereafter
Another excellent release from these melodic/folk black metallers. The fact that they end with an Ulver cover just seals the deal.
Wolves in the Throne Room Thrice Woven
Young Legionnaire Zero Worship
Youth Code Commitment to Complications
This reminds me of 'Addiction'-era Skinny Puppy goes digital hardcore. Musically it is really good, which shouldn't be a surprise since Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory) produced it. The stickler is the monotone shouted vocals. They're not bad, but they need to diversify the vocal delivery.

3.3 great
A Day To Remember For Those Who Have Heart
A Day To Remember Bad Vibrations
A heavier version of what they've always done. It's a very conistent album, though. Something that should appeal to their fans, for sure.
Abbath Abbath
Riffy black metal from the frontman of Immortal. It's nothing extraordinary, but it's definitely a solid and consistent album.
Abigail Williams In the Absence of Light
Act of Defiance Birth and the Burial
Kind of like Testament meets Nevermore with a singer that kind of reminds me of a more aggressive take on early Trivium vocals. There's a few parts that scream Megadeth, but mostly it's obvious why none of this would work with the previous band. Shawn Drover is as boring (yet solid) as always.
Act of Defiance Old Scars, New Wounds
Featuring the world's most conventional metal drummer and an average vocalist... somehow the riffs are able to defy all of that and turn "Old Scars, New Wounds" into a mostly enjoyable modern thrash listening experience.
Agrypnie 16[485]
Agrypnie Aetas Cineris
Ahamkara The Embers Of The Stars
Epic melodic black metal with extended song times and an excellent use of atmosphere.
Alcest Écailles de Lune
Amaranthe The Nexus
The worst parts of Soilwork meet the worst parts of Nightwish -- with a smoking hot female vocalist. Lifeless metalcore meets cheese-filled power metal. If there's something nice to say about this album it's that it 'almost' does enough to be good, and it's definitely better than their last release. Edit: Somehow I've had to up my rating to 3.3 -- it is infectious.
Amon Amarth The Avenger
Anacondas Sub Contra Blues
This is like Fugazi doing a post metal album. Good stuff.
Anathema The Optimist
In my review of their previous release, I said the first 3/4 was good but that the electronic songs that make up the back end
were not. Unfotuntely, this entire album basically builds off the electronics songs from that release. They're definitely
better and more refined, but they're still not nearly as good as what was on the trilogy of releases starting with We're Here
Because We're Here. Each song is very minimalistic and repetitive without the dynamics I've come to expect from this
Angels and Airwaves Chasing Shadows
The guy might be a total nutjob at this point, but this band still puts out decent, semi-experimental alt. pop.
Anne Marie Almedal Blue Sky Blue
Annisokay Enigmatic Smile
More Djenty metalcore. The songs seem more fleshed out than on the debut, but I still prefer that one.
Anomalie Between the Light
Very atmospheric and melodic post black metal. It is like 70% black metal and 30% post rock. It almost always has some sort of cyclical melodic refrain and never really falls into the trap of silence or mellow sections just for the sake of it. Surprisingly, it's also a very emotional/vulnerable album too (just listen to 'Not Like Others'). The album starts off really strong and every song is really good, but the problem is that they all kind of blend together by the end because there isn't a lot of variation.
Antoine Fafard Occultus Tramitis
Anubis Gate The Detached
Aphex Twin Donkey Rhubarb
Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works 85-92
Aphex Twin Windowlicker
Aphex Twin Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt 2
It's Richard D. James doing what he does best... mind-fucking you. This time just a little more subdued than usual.
Arcane Roots Melancholia Hymns
Arch Enemy War Eternal
New Vocalist, same made-for-the-masses melodic death metal sound. This one is a bit better than most their discography, for whatever that's worth.
Arch Enemy Rise of the Tyrant
Arch Enemy Wages of Sin
Architects Lost Forever // Lost Together
Architects Ruin
Artifex Pereo Am I Invisible
ASG Blood Drive
Ashes of Ares Ashes of Ares
Asking Alexandria The Black
This is solid metalcore with a great vocalist. I never heard their previous albums, so I have no idea how this compares.
Astrakhan Reward in Purpose
Kind of reminds me of a Life of Agony meets Isole sound. Slightly doomy, slightly progressive, with some of that alt. metal sound, too.
Astral Blood Astral Blood
Atena Possessed
Au Revoir Simone Move in Spectrums
August Burns Red Phantom Anthem
Autechre Incunabula
Autechre Exai
Authority Zero Broadcasting to the Nations
The first few songs are straight up punk and they're alright, but when they start blending the ska with the edgy punk the album gets much better. I've never heard their earlier albums so I don't know how this compares, but it's definitely not bad.
Avatarium Moonhorse
BABYMETAL Metal Resistance
It's basically a less fun, but more focused version of their debut. Probably won't change any minds, but I don't think that was the point of this album. I don't like it as much as their debut, because it's too serious now. I liked the random stupid shit that was scattered throughout their debut.
Bad Religion The Dissent of Man
Bat For Lashes Two Suns
Bathsheba Servus
70s inspired, female-fronted doom. It's basically the same thing a few other female-fronted doom bands are doing with the same grungy guitar-fuzz sound, but theses guys are better. Their female vocalist is better and even does some occasional raspy growls. Their music is better because it doesn't just plod along for 60 minutes with the same slow-chug guitar riff. This album has actual dynamics which is what really sets it apart... and you can't ignore the saxaphone solo, that's for sure.
Beastie Boys To the 5 Boroughs
Before The Dawn Soundscape Of Silence
Believer 3 of 5
Birdy Fire Within
Black Map In Droves
Basically this is slightly heavy alt. rock with a kind of post rock style melody attached to it. Not bad, but it kind of blends together by the mid-point.
Blut Aus Nord The Work Which Transforms God
Blut Aus Nord The Mystical Beast of Rebellion
Boreworm Black Path
Borknagar Epic
Born of Osiris Tomorrow We Die Alive
Born of Osiris The New Reign
Born of Osiris The Eternal Reign
Caliban Ghost Empire
I've heard these guys before, but I don't really remember them. This album, though, is pretty cool. It's kind of a metalcore/djent hybrid with some cool effects and occasional industrial parts. To be honest, it kind of reminds me of the latest album by Still Remains.
Cannibal Corpse Gore Obsessed
Catamenia Eternal Winter's Prophecy
Cathedral The Ethereal Mirror
Children of Bodom Chaos Ridden Years - Stockholm Knockout
Children of Bodom Follow the Reaper
Circle of Dust Metamorphisis (Remastered)
Claire Voyant Love Is Blind
Claire Voyant Time and the Maiden
Coheed and Cambria No World for Tomorrow
Conjure One Holoscenic
Contrarian To Perceive Is To Suffer
Musically, it kind of reminds me of Zero Hour and Spiral Architect but with a black metal edge. It's the black metal vocals that kind of gives this album its own sound. It's also what kind of brings it down, though. I'm just not a fan of that dry raspy black metal vocal style mixed so high.
Conveyer No Future
Really well done melodic hardcore. Kind of reminds me of the last two Senses Fail releases, but much more 'musical'.
Corrosion of Conformity Deliverance
Cradle of Filth The Principle of Evil Made Flesh
Cradle of Filth Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa
Cranial Dark Towers, Bright Lights
Crimfall Amain
Folky, symphonic, melodic death metal. It's a pretty damn good album that kind of reminds me of a variation of what Arkan used to do on their earlier stuff. There's just enough pomp and cheese to drag down the rating, though.
Crown the Empire The Fallout
CygnosiC A Deity In Pain
Cynic Uroboric Forms
Definitely a good remaster. The best part of it is that the sound isn't so muddy anymore, and also the tape hiss is gone which clears up everything else. It is still a demo though, so don't get too excited.
D-A-D No Fuel Left For The Pilgrims
D.R.I. Crossover
D.R.I. Dirty Rotten LP
Dagoba Black Nova
A cool blend of thrash, death metal, and metalcore with the occassional industrial element thrown in. My trouble with these guys is that when they're on, they're awesome, but those awesome bits are always surrounded by merely good parts that kind of blend together. There's no doubt they've got better with each release, though, and kind of expanded their sound a little.

Dead Letter Circus Next In Line
Dead Letter Circus Aesthesis
Dead When I Found Her Eyes On Backwards
Dead When I Found Her have never been 100% original, but they had their own little niche. This time they're just doing straight-up old school Skinny Puppy emulation. It's good, but not compared to their older albums.
Deadlock Hybris
Deadlock drop the pop-leanings of their last few albums and get back into Manifesto/Wolves territory (without any of the techno/hip-hop tangents). Featuring what is basically an entirely new line-up, the band has returned to what attracted fans in the first place.r
Decapitated Blood Mantra
Decapitated Anticult
I've been listening to Decapitated since "Organic Hallucinosis" and they've always just kind of done the extreme Fear Factory sound without much variation. "Anticult" finally sees them diversifying a little bit. The Fear Factory influence is still blatanatly apparent, but there's also a more melodic edge that kind of reminds me of modern Soilwork. The vocals, too, have softened just a little bit. These are all good things, because I don't know if I could have handled "Organic Hallucinosis" Part 4.
Deep Sea Diver Secrets
Cute Indie Pop with lush melodies. It's good, but probably too 'safe' for me to come back to.
Deftones Saturday Night Wrist
Departe Failure, Subside
Depeche Mode Violator
Devil Sold His Soul Empire of Light
Devil Sold His Soul Belong/Betray
Dia Frampton Bruises
This is definitely a different approach for her. It's not the indie pop of her Meg and Dia days, and it's not the slick pop of her post-The Voice appearance either. This reminds me of the atmospheric pop of bands such as Delerium. This is catchier than that and less eccentric, but it's definitely in the same realm.
Diary of Dreams Panik Manifesto
Diary of Dreams Grau im Licht
Die Krupps The Machinists Of Joy
Die Krupps have never been a phenomenal band, but this is probably about as good as they've ever been.
Dimmu Borgir Godless Savage Garden
Disillusion Gloria
Disillusion Back to Times of Splendor
Disturbed Indestructible
Divinity The Immortalist
Dodecahedron Kwintessens
Chaotic technical death metal with minor industrial influences. It veers a little too far into the dissonant for me to totally enjoy, but in short bursts it is pretty damn good.
Doomed Wrath Monolith
Download Lingam
Dream Theater Octavarium
Dream Theater When Dream and Day Unite
Dream Theater Falling into Infinity

Drowners On Desire
Drudkh Forgotten Legends
Drudkh Microcosmos
Dusks Embrace Reawakening
E-Force Evil Forces
Echosmith Acoustic Dreams
Apparently this album is just acoustic remakes of a few of their songs. I don't know how they normally sound because this is my first introduction to the band. I like it, though. Kind of upbeat indie pop with male/female harmonized vocals.
Echosmith Talking Dreams
Edge of Sanity Crimson
Edge of Sanity Crimson II
Eerie (US) Eerie
Like Led Zeppelin goes black metal. Not bad at all.
Eisley Currents
Elder (USA-MA) Reflections of a Floating World
Elderblood Messiah
Kind of a cross between Behemoth and Dimmu Borgir, sitting just a bit more on the Dimmu Borgir side. Riffy, symphonic death/black metal. Good stuff.
Emme Packer 15 Songs
End of the Dream Until You Break
These guys take everything that makes Evanescence good and pump it through a heavier, more bombastic sound.
Definitely for fans of Evanescence and modern Within Temptation and Nemesea.
Enshine Singularity
Entheos (USA) The Infinite Nothing
Quirky and aggressive technical death metal. I like all the little effects that run throughout portions of the songs.
Entheos (USA) Dark Future
Eternal Tears of Sorrow Before the Bleeding Sun
Eumeria Rebel Mind
Evergrey Glorious Collision
Exodus Let There Be Blood
Explosions in the Sky The Wilderness
This is some post rock I can get behind. Short, melodic and to-the-point songs without all of the useless silence.
Explosions in the Sky The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
Eyes of Fire Ashes to Embers
Fear Factory Obsolete
Feared Vinter
Filter The Amalgamut
Filter The Trouble With Angels
Filter The Sun Comes Out Tonight
Finch Back to Oblivion
There has been some discussion about how this album would sound in relation to the two previous releases. The general consensus has been that it will be closer to WIITB than SHTTS, because SHTTS was just something they had to get out of their systems -- well, they were technically right. 55% WIITB / 45% SHTTS; 100% awesome.
Fireflight For Those Who Wait
Flaw Divided We Fall
This is nu-metal and they don't try to hide it. This is their first album in 12 years and it sounds like no time has past. Flaw were always one of the best nu metal bands out there and this album maintains that standard.
Flotsam and Jetsam Ugly Noise
I've only listened once so far, but it's definitely a continuation of where 'Cuatro' and 'Drift' left off all those ryears ago. More to come...r... After a few more listens, it definitely grows on you. It's like 'Cuatro' and 'Drift' but the riffing isn't as rigid; rthe riffs definitely have more of that 'When the Storm Comes Down' vibe. It definitely lacks the energy, rmoodiness and heaviness of 'The Cold', but considering the fact that the guy who wrote that entire album left rthe band, it's to be expected.
Foreclosure Of A Dream Ogden
Foscor Les Irreals Visions
Definitely reminds me of Novembre around the time of "The Blue." This is a little more expansive, atmospheric, and melancholy, but essentially this and "The Blue" are cut from the same cloth.
Frameworks Smother
Kind of a post-punk meets post hardcore kind of sound. I like all of the dissonant melodies that come from the vocals and the guitars.
Front Line Assembly Live Wired
Front Line Assembly Fallout
Front Line Assembly Hard Wired
Frou Frou Details
Galactic Cowboys At The End Of The Day
Gamma Ray Somewhere Out in Space
Gideon Cold
Maybe a liitle more melodic and musically adept, but this is basically Hatebreed with occasional clean vocals. In case it isn't clear, that means it's pretty damn cool.
Giraffe Tongue Orchestra Broken Lines
Glades This Is What It's Like
Godflesh Decline & Fall
I don't follow these guys regularly anymore, but it feels like they kind of went back to their heavier, grittier roots. Rhythmic post metal kind of 'Streetcleaner'-ish.
Godflesh Streetcleaner
Godflesh Slavestate
Godflesh Pure
Godflesh A World Lit Only by Fire
Gojira Magma
Almost reminds me of what Cynic could have become if they had kept any of their metal roots intact. Good, very chill and atmospheric, semi-progressive rock/metal.
Good Tiger A Head Full Of Moonlight
Grieved Grieved
So, they call this dark hardcore. I kind of thought it sounded like a hardcore band influenced by old school Paradise Lost, so I guess that works.
Hanging Garden I Am Become
Harakiri for the Sky III: Trauma
Very epic and well put-together post black metal that doesn't suffer from getting bogged down in forced ambience.
Harm October Fire
Great old school thrash with a strong Slayer influence.
Heaven Shall Burn Whatever It May Take
Heavydeath In Circles We Die
Heliotropes A Constant Sea
Helloween 7 Sinners
Helloween The Time of the Oath
Helloween Straight Out of Hell
Helmet Betty
Helstar Sins of the Past
Hemina As We Know It
Hope Drone Cloak of Ash
Long, droning, post black metal with doom elements.
Hope For The Dying Legacy
Another dose of well-done progressive death metal/metalcore. It's basically the same thing they've been doing since the beginning and maybe it's just starting to get a bit old, because I can't really hear any reason to like this less than their last two releases, but I do anyway.
Hypno5e Acid Mist Tomorrow
Hypocrisy A Taste of Extreme Divinity
Ice Nine Kills Every Trick in the Book
Imperium Dekadenz Procella Vadens
In Flames Whoracle
In Mourning Monolith
In The Nursery Lingua
Inanimate Existence Calling from a Dream
There are some really cool progressive death metal songs on this album, but there are also parts that just kind of drag. I've never heard the previous releases, but maybe they'll come through 100% next time.r
Inanimate Existence Underneath a Melting Sky
Incubus HQ Live

Joe Satriani Time Machine
Jose Vanders Blue Notes
Journey Generations
Judas Priest Turbo
Julianna Barwick The Magic Place
K. Flay Life As A Dog
Not a big hip hop fan, but I like this. Probably because her rap/singing style kind of reminds me of an upbeat Trip Hop album.
Kamelot Ghost Opera
Karma Violens Skin Of Existence
Modern Extreme Metal. Also known as death metal with a slick production and some metalcore influence.
Kattah Lapis Lazuli
Some great progressive metal. They have a great atmosphere, great music and a pretty decent vocalist. It mixes progressive metal with Arabian, Eastern European, Brazilian and many other musical styles, atmospheres and rhythms.
Katy McAllister Take Me Away (Instrumentals)
Keep of Kalessin Epistemology
Slickly produced melodic black metal with a ton of clean vocals. Overall it's pretty good but the clean vocals do have a tendency to diminish instead of enhance the songs.
Keep of Kalessin Reptilian

It's Lamb of God, but slightly better than in the past. I'm more interested to hear their drummer on the new Megadeth album.
Laments of Silence System Failure
Last Chance to Reason Level 3
Latitudes Old Sunlight
Atmospheric and progressive post metal. There are a lot of instrumental sections on this album, but where there are vocals they are actual singing and not your typical raspy shout.
Leah Of Earth & Angels
Leddra Chapman Telling Tales
Leprous Bilateral
Leprous The Congregation
This is some cool moody/atmospheric progressive metal. The vocals take a little getting used to, but overall this is really good.
Lijie Roam
Linkin Park Living Things
Liquid Sky Identity
Lisa Loeb Tails
Lo-Pan Colossus
Lodz Time Doesn't Heal Anything
This is basically post metal, but there is a lot of post rock and doom thrown in as well. That makes the music pretty damn good. My problem is that the clean singing needs to make a bigger impact. These guys definitely have potential.
Lorde Pure Heroine
Lostprophets The Betrayed
Lotus Thief Gramarye
The music is like a very melodic post black metal sound, but the vocals are more influenced by dream pop and are done by a female. It's good stuff.
Lunascape Reflecting Seyelence
Lycus Tempest
Machine Head Bloodstone and Diamonds
Magenta Metamorphosis
Magenta Harvest ...And Then Came The Dust

Mariah McManus Nice To Meet You
Marilyn Manson The Pale Emperor
Not nearly the same band from the 90s. This is mostly mellow and catchy rock with a slightly dark atmosphere and a bit of a rhythmic delivery. Probably his best album since Mechanical Animals.
Marilyn Manson The Golden Age of Grotesque
Marty Friedman Wall of Sound
Mastodon Emperor of Sand
These guys are good, but I've never been able to get into them like some people do. That being said, this release is probably my favorite from them.
McCafferty BeachBoy
Medeia Manning the Helm
The modern extreme metal sound is starting to dominate the semi-technical death metal of the past. Still not bad, though.
Megadeth Dystopia
It's not as good as the classics or even Endgame, but it is definitely better than anything else they've done. Also, one of the more consistently good Megadeth albums ever released. I like Dave's deeper growl on this album.
Mekong Delta Intersections
Meshuggah The Violent Sleep of Reason
Meshuggah have made another Meshuggah album. They've basically painted themselves into a corner with their sound, and how little they're willing to deviate from their core formula. So, this one is subtly different from the last one, but it still sounds very familiar even on first listen. Still a great release, though.
Mindrot Dawning
Mnemic Mechanical Spin Phenomena
Monolithe Zeta Reticuli
3 songs and 45 minutes long. This is some really good and diverse doom. I haven't enjoyed a doom album in a long time, but this one is done right. It has its super slow moments, but also adjusts tempo enough to keep things interesting and the melodies/riffs are actually memorable. Vocal styles are diverse too. Good stuff
Monuments The Amanuensis
Melodic, progressive Djent. Great vocals but everything blends together very fast. This is an album that's probably better in small doses before the repetition kills it.
Moonsorrow Voimasta Ja Kunniasta
Motley Crue Shout at the Devil
Mournful Congregation Concrescence of the Sophia
Lethargic, heavy, melodic funeral doom. 20 minutes for a song. Everything it should be.
Mourning Beloveth Rust & Bone
These guys used to be one of the more entertaining doom bands. Almost like a more modern My Dying Bride with a better vocalist. This one drags, though, because only two of the songs are any good.

Norma Jean Polar Similar
I'm not a big fan of Norma Jean. This album, though, is awesome. I'm not sure when they switched vocal styles, but I much prefer this to the throatier style I've heard on previous albums. The music too, while heavier, is less chaotic.
Novembre Wish I Could Dream It Again...
Novembre Ursa
The kings of moody doom/prog have returned and pick up right where they left off. The music and black metal vocals are still really good, but the clean singing is still way too monotone to allow these songs to get to the next level.
Noveria Forsaken
A nice blend of traditional metal, power metal, and modern metalcore. Definitely has more balls than your average 'power metal' album, and infinitely less cheese.
Nowen Essence of Fear
Numenorean Home
Another excellent epic post black metal album that is big on the aggressive moments. Awesome melodies too.
O'Brother Endless Light
Oathbreaker Rheia
Imagine the sound a cat makes when it isn't completely run over, and then put that to an aggressive post black metal soundtrack. It's surprisingly entertaining.
October File The Application of Loneliness, Ignorance...
What would it have sounded like if Neurosis decided to keep the hardcore influences after the release of 'The Word as Law' while still pushing into the post metal realm? The answer is this band. This is some in-your-face post metal. No build-ups, no extended silence or atmospheric parts. Just kick ass, punky, post metal
October Tide Winged Waltz
Melodic doom/death from two Katatonia members. It's really solid doom/death metal with excellent atmosphere, but it is still lacking... something.
Opeth Damnation
Ov Hollowness The World Ends
Panopticon / Waldgefluster Panopticon & Waldgeflüster
Both bands start with some really good folky black metal. It's fast, melodic and intense. Both bands second songs are slow folk songs and both of them are boring.

Periphery Periphery III: Select Difficulty
I don't think it's as good as their previous two releases, but it's still good. These guys have a ton of potential, but it's becoming obvious that they're happy just kind of being prog metal slackers.

Phinehas Dark Flag
Phinehas The Last Word Is Yours to Speak
Polar No Cure No Saviour
What would happen if Hatebreed had some talent, a solid creative streak and a slightly more versatile vocalist? I think it would sound something like this album.
Polarheart Polarheart
Dreamy female fronted electro-pop. Very lush melodies and layered vocals. I can't resist this shit.
Poverty's No Crime Spiral of Fear
Really well-done progressive metal. Kind of sounds like a Dream Theater/modern Fates Warning hybrid. The vocalist sounds a lot like the dude from Fates Warning. r

Primal Fear Primal Fear
Primal Fear Black Sun
Primal Fear Live in the USA
Primal Fear Unbreakable

Rabbit Junk Invasion
Rabbit Junk is incapable of making a bad album. More industrial metal (or Digital Hardcore) that hops genres from metal to hip hop.
Raventale Planetarium
Red End of Silence - 10th Anniversary Edition
If you liked RED's Linkin Park goes symphonic Alt. Metal debut, but never bought the album then this might interest you. Otherwise, it sounds exactly the same as the original release and the extra songs aren't worth the re-purchase. It is a good album, though, and worth checking out for newcomers.
Red Gone
Red Moon Architect Return of the Black Butterflies
Ultra slow and melodic funeral doom that has death and female vocals. Kind of reminds me of the doomier Swallow the Sun stuff.
Red Queen Star Blood
Regina Spektor Remember Us To Life
Rise to Fall End vs. Beginning
Melodic metalcore that kind of reminds me of a cross between Still Remains and Disarmonia Mundi.
Riverside Love, Fear and the Time Machine
This is some good prog rock, but it?s just way to mellow and abstract for me to keep coming back to.
Rosetta Quintessential Ephemera
Very atmospheric and chill post metal with occasional bits that sound more like traditional post metal aggression.
Rotting Christ Theogonia
ROVO and System 7 Phoenix Rising
RPWL World Through My Eyes
RPWL Beyond Man and Time
Sad Day For Puppets Unknown Colours
Sadistik Altars
I think Sadistik is kind of losing his inspiration or something. Each release has been just a little less exciting and creative than the last. That's not to say this isn't really good, only that his brand of chill atmospheric hip-hop needs a new kick in the ass.
Sadistik & Kristoff Krane Prey for Paralysis
Samael Above
Samael Solar Soul
Samael Reign Of Light
Sannhet So Numb
Scale the Summit The Migration
Scarling. So Long, Scarecrow
Schammasch Triangle
This is some epic, atmospheric black metal. It starts out really good, but as it reaches the middle/end of the album, it kind of moves into a totally ambient style that I didn't appreciate as much.

A nice blend of doom, post metal, metal and even a small bit of prog. The vocals are a little monotonous but not too bad.
SikTh Opacities
SikTh The Future in Whose Eyes?
Silence The Messenger The Proclamation
Well done, but two-dimensional, death metal/metalcore. Good for working out to, but probably not for constant active listening.
Sinistro Semente
This is a hard one to describe. Take the female-fronted darkwave/goth stuff of bands like Love Spirals Downwards, and mix it with a soulful, gentle, atmospheric, version of post metal combined with the darkness of the early Cranes sound and you're in the ballpark.

This is the first Symphony X album I've bothered with in a while. Kind of reminds me of a cross between Nevermore and Dream Theater. Not bad.
Tad Morose Undead
Taking Back Sunday Where You Want To Be
Tantal Expectancy
This is some good proggy metalcore-ish stuff. Kind of reminds me of latter-day Deadlock with more than a little To-Mera (the good album) thrown in. The harsh vocals are the main thing dragging this down. They need a stronger male vocalist.
Tara MacLean Wake
Tech N9ne Everready (The Religion)
Tempel The Moon Lit Our Path
Instrumental metal that doesn't include any shredding. Instead they kind of riff their way from beginning to end utilizing a mix of post metal and black metal.
Teramaze Her Halo
TesseracT One
TesseracT Polaris
Very mellow progressive rock. It's not bad when I'm in the mood for it.

Post-Punk meets Industrial. Kind of reminds me of a cross between New Model Army and Ministry with a bit of Lights, Camera, Revolution-era Suicidal thrown in. The song titles are dumb, but the music is pretty cool.
The Future Sound of London Cascade
The Honey Trees Bright Fire
Another solid indie pop release from these guys. Another band that reminds me alot of Eisley... which is a good thing.

The Offspring Days Go By
The Orb Moonbuilding 2703 Ad
The Project Hate MCMXCIX Bleeding The New Apocalypse

Technical death metal that is all over the place. Defintely takes a lot of listens to start to really get into it, but worth the effort.
The Tumor Called Marla Trance
Lacuna Coil meets TesseracT. It's pretty damn cool.
Theatre Of Tragedy Musique
Theatre Of Tragedy Last Curtain Call
The new female vocalist can't really do Liv's vocal parts on the older songs, but the production and overall sound is much better than those early recordings, so kind of a trade-off.
Thought Industry Black Umbrella

Pink Floyd meets Tiamat's 'Deeper Kind of Slumber' release. Not as catchy as Throes of Dawn's last album, and nothing really stands out. This might just be a very long grower.

Tryad Listen
Tuesday The Sky Drift
Just about everything Jim Matheos touches is gold (or close). Fates Warning, his solo work, Chroma Key,
Arch/Martheos...it's all great and they all have their own sound, too. So, does Jim's latest project live up to his potential? It
really does. This time around he's doing the post rock thing, but there's more to it than that. It's Post Rock with bits of
dream pop, alt. rock, and even hints of modern Fates Warning in places. He's backed up by the solid percussion of God Is
An Astronaut's drummer and the occasional vocal augmentation of Lotte Kestner of Trespassers William.
Type O Negative World Coming Down
Ultar Kadath
An interesting blend of post rock and 90s-era melodic black metal. Instead of integrating the two styles together, generally this band likes to do a pure black metal thing and transition to a pure post rock thing... and it works.
Uneven Structure La Partition
Unfathomable Ruination Misshappen Congenital Entropy

Vanessa Carlton Blue Pool EP
Veil of Maya Matriarch
Djent, metalcore, deathcore? what is this exactly? I was never a huge fan of their previous releases, but I like the new direction on this album. The clean vocals add a much-needed diversity.
Veil of Maya False Idol
Viral Millennium Vomitosis
There isn't anything out of the ordinary about this band, but they do play some pretty solid industrial metal with a melodic undercurrent.
Virus (NO) Memento Collider
This album has a very dark proggy post punk sound. It's the kind of dark, quirky, prog that only Norway seems capable of producing.
Viza Aria
This is the perfect cross between latter-day System of a Down and The Apex Theory. Some of the melodies and vocals sound like they were lifted straight from those bands. Minor originality issues aside, this isn't bad. At the end of the day, this is still catchy, well-played, quirky alt. rock -- it just sounds vaguely familiar.
Voivod Post Society
Voivod have finally released the first new material of their career without their founding guitarist. So how is it? It's great. The first four tracks sound like classic Killing Technology/Dimension Hatross-era tunes, while the final track could have been lifted directly from Angel Rat with a slightly more progressive edge. We'll all miss Piggy, but it appears Voivod aren't going anywhere.
Volumes No Sleep
Wayfarer Old Souls
Kind of a cross between Black Metal, Doom and Post Metal. Very long, expansive songs. It's very good, but will definitely require multiple listens.
We Came As Romans Cold Like War
Whitesnake Whitesnake
Whitesnake Slip of the Tongue
Why We Run Holograms
Wild Belle Dreamland
Psychedelic pop sound with grooves based on reggae and ska. Also, kind of an indie/world music vibe, too. It's pretty good.
Windhand Soma
Windswept The Great Cold Steppe
By-the-numbers 90s melodic black metal... hell yeah. Features Roman Sayenko of Drudkh.
Winter Soul Reactor
Witherscape The Northern Sanctuary
Within Temptation Mother Earth
Within Temptation Hydra
Yes, this is painfully generic gothic rock/metal with all the required keyboards, female vocals and anonymous riffs -- but it is also really well-executed and extrememly catchy.
Within the Ruins Phenomena
Proggy dejenty metalcore with some cool little effects. Nothing too out the ordinary, but pretty well done.
Within the Ruins Invade
Wolfheart Winterborn
Wolfheart Tyhjyys
Wren (UK) Auburn Rule
Yellowcard Yellowcard
It starts out pretty great, with the second song being one of my favorites from this band, but it feels like the second half is just back-to-back-to-back ballads. Not a bad album to end their career with, though.
Zaius Of Adoration
Zero Hour The Towers of Avarice
Zhrine Unortheta
Progressive/Atmospheric death metal that kind of reminds me of Ulcerate without being as chaotic.r

Abigail's Ghost d_letion
Abigail's Ghost Nombre Trente Deux
This album was never meant to be purchased. It's ten songs that are 32-seconds long each. The reason is that Spotify wouldn't pay artists for streams that were less than 30-seconds, and were barely paying for tracks that did fit the criteria. The idea is that fans find this album on Spotify and set it to repeat indefinitely. The band gets paid for the songs, and the fan gets to feel helpful. The music itself isn't bad, though. It sounds like snippets of something that might have come from Aphex Twin's 'Selected Ambient Works' album. So, not the progressive rock some might expect, but still not bad.
Abigail's Ghost Black Plastic Sun
The album started out strong, and they've definitely found their own sound but it's just too mellow for me.
Abnormal Thought Patterns Altered States of Consciousness
Techy, instrumental metal. Really good musicianship, but nothing that really sticks.
After Forever After Forever
Against The Current In Our Bones
Against The Current Gravity
Ahab The Boats Of The Glen Carrig
They've definitely diversified their sound, and I really like their brand of doom. The death vocals are still kind of one-dimensional (to be expected), and the new clean vocals give it a new angle, but they're not all that good.
Akercocke Choronzon
Alkaline Trio Crimson
Alkaloid The Malkuth Grimoire
All That Remains This Darkened Heart
Allegaeon Elements of the Infinite
Thrashy, melodic semi-technical death metal. I can't compare it to their older albums because I haven't heard them, but this one is definitely solid.

Poppy mainstream rock that's actually very slick and well done. This is miles-away better than the pop crap that Liv Kirstine (Leaves' Eyes) keeps putting out on her solo albums. If you liked her voice on Nightwish, I think there's enough here to enjoy this, too.
Angel Snow Angel Snow
Angel Snow Magnetic
Angels and Airwaves Love - Part II
Animals As Leaders The Joy of Motion
Instrumental rock/metal is a very hit-or-miss thing. What works for someone will totally bore another. Unfortunately, this album fades into the background about as often as it actually catches my attention. Fluid, instrumental prog that is mostly pretty mellow (but energetic at the same time... weird).

Aphex Twin Digeridoo
Apneica Pulsazioni... Conversione
Post black metal in the vein of the last Todtgelichter release. Almost kind of an expansive alt. rock sound that occasionally dips into death/black metal territory.
Arch Enemy Tyrants of the Rising Sun
Arch Enemy Will to Power
On "Will To Power" Arch Enemy easily have their most talented line up. Alissa White-Gluz is defintely the best vocalist
they've had with the most potential for some vocal diversity, and Jeff Loomis can shred and riff around any former (or
current) Arch Enemy guitarist. Plus, the established band members kept talking about how this album was going to be
different; not just another standard Arch Enemy release. It seemed like the band had all the pieces in place to break from
their rut, and that they were finally willing to try. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. "Will To Power" is a slower, more-
accessible version of the previous release... and yes, Loomis is totally wasted on this album. Alyssa gets the chance to
expand her vocals in a few tracks. Unfortunately, the one she gets to shine the most on, is also the worst musically. On
paper, the ex-guitarist for Carcass paired with the lead guitarist and chief songwriter for Nevermore should result in
something awesome. Add to that the diverse vocal capabilities of Alyssa and "Will to Power" should have blown the doors
off the Melodic Death Metal genre. Instead, it's mearly a breeze.
Architects Daybreaker
Arctic Sleep Passage Of Gaia
They definitely have a modern Funeral sound to them. From the vocals to the morose atmosphere to a lot of the riffs. These guys might be a little more dynamic, but they're definitely similar.

Assignment Closing the Circle
At the Drive-In in•ter a•li•a
At the Drive-In Relationship of Command
At the Gates Terminal Spirit Disease
At The Soundawn Visionaries
This album kind of came in under the radar because the band have opted to handle every aspect of the release on their own. It's a shame, because this is pretty damn good. They've dropped a lot of their post metal influences in favor of a stoner rock meets alt rock meets post rock sound. There's no throaty shouts anymore, but the clean vocals can carry the album for the most part and the post metal is still there in the actual construction of the songs even though it's not really in the actual sound anymore.
At War With Self Circadian Rhythm Disorder
Instrumental mixture of Progressive Metal, Jazz, ambient, and classical. It's very good - sometimes reminding me of old Thought Industry, other times old Cynic and more modern stuff as well.

This isn't memorable, but I don't think they were shooting for making a pop album. This is mellow/chill and very atmospheric. I think that this album was more meant to create a consistent mood than to give anyone something to sing along to later.
Bangladeafy Narcopaloma

Barren Earth Curse of the Red River
Barren Earth The Devil's Resolve

Mixing 70s prog, folk and doom/death metal. I liked their previous albums and they've definitely progressed musically, but I don't like the new vocalist as much.

The kind of chill atmospheric progressive rock that Porcupine Tree brought into the mainstream. Not as good as PT but not bad either. What it really lacks are those hooky choruses that carry the mellow music and the strong melodies.

Brand New Science Fiction

Bring Me The Horizon That's the Spirit
Every previous album by them has sucked or been barely passable. I don't remember what they sounded like, so I don't know what they've changed for this one, but I like it.

Candlemass Death Thy Lover
Cannabis Corpse Left Hand Pass
Cannabis Corpse From Wisdom to Baked
I've never heard these guys before and was really surprised. I expected some half-assed, bland death metal that got by on its (stupid) little theme. Instead, this is some good, very thrashy, death metal. I especially liked that the bass guitar was very audible and also had some pretty good parts.

Cover Your Tracks Fever Dream
Crematory Act Seven

Cruxifiction The Coming
Cyanotic Worst Case Scenario Vol. 1
Cybertoyz Undo Exit
Instrumental metal that kind of alternates between heavy sections and smoother Satriani-style sections. Also has a cool electro-industrial undercurrent through most of the songs.
CygnosiC Fire And Forget
CygnosiC Siren
Cynic Kindly Bent to Free Us
So, Cynic can still throw their fans some curveballs. This isn't nearly as instant, as metal or as catchy as their previous albums. This is the band drawing down to their prog roots and making expansive, sprawling (by Cynic standards) tracks that will require all kinds of work to finally process and retain. This one may take all year to grow.
Czar No One Is Alive If No One Is Alive
Just not as catchy or as well put-together as their debut. Also, they still have the problem where Jason's vocals aren't as aggressive or 'in-your-face' as they could be -- instead they kind of just blend in with the music. Don't get me wrong, it's still good, but they've hit that 'sophomore slump'.
Dagoba Face the Colossus
Dagoba Post Mortem Nihil Est
Dark Matter Secret Perfect World Creation
Progressive instrumental death metal that reminds me of those modern prog/death bands that are heavily influenced by Cynic. The individual songs are awesome, but overall the sound is too uniform to last the entire album.
Dark Tranquillity Skydancer
Dark Tranquillity We Are the Void
Darkher Realms
Darkwell Moloch
Dawn Of Ashes Genocide Chapters
Dawn Of Ashes Daemonolatry Gnosis
Well done, but fairly standard, symphonic black metal with industrial elements.
Dawn Ray'd The Unlawful Assembly
Daydream XI The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn
De Profundis Kingdom of the Blind
It's like a blend of primitive death metal and progressive death metal. It isn't bad, but the production is too muddy for me. It's like someone is listening to it in another room and I'm hearing it through the walls.
Dead Letter Circus The Catalyst Fire
Deadlock Bizarro World
Deadlock Earth.Revolt
Death Angel The Evil Divide
Deathspell Omega Diabolus Absconditus

Delain We Are The Others
This one is heavier than the previous album and has (thankfully) dumped the male vocals -- besides a token guest appearance from Fear Factory's vocalist. Still nothing special, but a step in the right direction. Upbeat, heavy, female-fronted gothic metal.
Delain The Human Contradiction
I'm surprised. This album really brings some good riffs. Of course, they're layered under female vocals and keyboards, and broken up by super-poppy choruses -- but it's still a good surprise. Delain have moved in the same direction as Within Temptation's 'The Unforgiving' release. They've throttled back on the keyboard overkill, added better riffs and made the whole thing much more mainstream.

More proggy black metal. I guess I'm just not that big of an Enslaved fan.
Enthroned Sovereigns
Very solid, if a bit unremarkable, black metal. On the other hand, it is definitely pretty diverse and dynamic for an
Enthroned album. Lots of varied tempos and vocals, and the extra sounds and effects are definitely complimentary.
Epica The Divine Conspiracy
Epica The Solace System
Era for a Moment Realize
ERRA Impulse
ERRA Drift
Ex Deo The Immortal Wars
Solid, if a bit unremarkable, symphonic/melodic death metal. Kind of cheesy in places, too.
Exist So True, So Bound
The music is really good. It basically stands somewhere between Cynic's "Traced in Air" album and "Kindly Bent to Free Us" but not as well done. The problem is that the clean vocals are pretty boring and lethargic and they tend to drag down every song. The occasional growls aren't that great either, but they're a welcome change since they temporarily stop the clean vocals.
Exit_International Our Science Is Golden
I've never heard their other album, but this is pretty damn good. Kind of reminds me of a stranger, much noisier, version of BATS. I like it. 'Fuck Yeah! Depression' is so damn catchy.

The comeback album... not nearly as good as Angel Dust or as metal as The Real Thing, but it's much better than their last two albums.
Fallujah The Flesh Prevails
This has some pretty interesting ideas in spots, but in others it just seems to drag along without any real direction.

This is some pretty good atmospheric/progressive death metal. Kind of run-of-the-mill, but still good.

Feign (US) Farralone
Filter Crazy Eyes
Filter have never been an industrial band. They've always featured electronics in their music, but they're basically alt. metal. Having said that, this is definitely a good alt. metal album that features a decent use of electronics.
Final Coil Persistence of Memory
I hear a mixture of southern rock, progressive rock and doom in the music. Vocally, this sounds like a more melodious version of Opeth's clean vocals. My only issue with this is it's all still a little too two dimensional, but it's just their debut. I forsee even better things in their future.
Finsterforst Mach Dich Frei

Primitive death metal meets Arch Enemy melodies done by an all-female band. There are so many flashes of greatness, but it's dragged down by a lot of really average parts. Good enough that I can't just it.
Front 242 Backcatalogue
Front 242 Pulse
Front Line Assembly Gashed Senses & Crossfire
Front Line Assembly Angriff [Remix]
Front Line Assembly Echoes
The remix album for the band's last album. It's better than most remix albums. It actually makes a few of the songs better than the originals. I don't think FLA will ever be the same without Rhys Fulber.
Fugazi In on the Kill Taker
Future Generations Future Generations
Garbage Not Your Kind of People
Here is the album that should have come after Version 2.0. Garbage's sophomore album built on the catchy alt. rock of their self-titled debut while adding an additional undercurrent of electronic elements and it was a pretty cool, unique blend (for the late nineties). This album picks up right where Version 2.0 left off and is a welcome return.
Garbage Strange Little Birds
Gardenian Soulburner
GGU:LL Dwaling
Good funeral doom with some decent riffs and occasional atmospheric moments. Too repetitive for me, though.
Ghost (SWE) Popestar

The music is really good post rock/black metal, but the vocals are just abstract screeches and screams. The lazy vocals hold back what could have been a really good release.

Hanging Garden TEOTWAWKI
Hanging Garden have now done for post metal what they did for doom on their debut - they've made it accessible, memorable, and easily digestible. They've accomplished this in a similar fashion to how they pulled off their debut. They took the elements of the genre (this time post metal) and injected a bit more melody and speed than is normal. The vocals have changed from a growl to a scream that could remind of anyone from Isis to Neurosis (but not Hatebreed) and fit the music just fine. Just don't approach this expecting another doom album.
Hark Crystalline
The proggy sludge thing that they have going on is pretty cool in very small doses. The lack of any real hooks or variation makes it drag pretty damn quick, though.

Helloween will never re-capture the magic of the 'Keeper of the Seven Keys' era and barely seem capable of pulling off the same quality as 'Better Than Raw', but at least they're not singing about Heavy Metal Hamsters anymore.

Kind of a step back from 'Glory of Chaos'. That album kind of brought the band into the modern era. This album returns some of that 80s power prog. Not a terrible thing, but a little disappointing.
Herrschaft Les 12 Vertiges
Hypno5e Des Deux l'une Est l'autre
I Am The Trireme Gnosis: Never Follow the Light
Epic and melodic black metal. The vocals are mixed just a bit high for my tastes, but the music more than makes up for it.

Metalcore/goth metal type stuff with a ton of guest vocalists.
I Was Totally Destroying It Horror Vacui
Iced Earth Horror Show
Impaled Nazarene Vigorous And Liberating Death
This is a very clean production by Impaled Nazarene standards. The production lets you hear all the instruments, which is nice. I also hear an undercurrent of keyboards (Were they always used? Maybe I just don't remember). This album is also slightly more melodic than their previous stuff. Other than that, it's business as usual with their brand of black metal. Doesn't hold a candle to their last album, though.

Kind of a Post hardcore/metalcore blend with a bit of djent and industrial thrown in. It's a powerful and aggressive album, and the industrial parts kind of give the band their own sound but there's still just something missing.

I like their more electronic-based albums more. This is good and mellow and doesn't suffer from that post rock sickness of too long songs without enough going on.

Grand Declaration of War is the only Mayhem album that I truly enjoy. The vocals are just way too much on most of the other albums. Having said that, the vocals are tolerable on this and the music is pretty good... but it's just standard stuff.

Novembers Doom Bled White
Kind of reminds me of a more death metal influenced version of Daylight Dies. Meaning it's good, but kind of no-frills doom/death.
Noveria Risen
Semi-thrashy power metal. Pretty solid stuff. Has a few modern influences as well such as the occasional death metal growl.
Nox Aurea Via Gnosis
Nox Aurea Ascending In Triumph
Obscura Retribution
October File Monuments
October File Holy Armour from the Jaws of God
October Tide Tunnel of No Light
Oddland Origin
Odium (CAN) Burning the Bridges to Nowhere
Ofelia K Chaos Cave
Omnium Gatherum New World Shadows
Omnium Gatherum Beyond
Omnium Gatherum Grey Heavens
It's safe, unconfrontational ultra-melodic death metal by the numbers. That doesn't mean it's not good.
Once Human Evolution
Great in small bursts, and the chick in the band is hot... take that for whatever it's worth.
Operation: Mindcrime Resurrection
Geoff Tates takeas the alt-Ryche of the previous album and mellows it out while adding a bit more atmosphere. It's not as diverse as the previous release, but there's also no Nu-Metal influence on this one, so... Anyway, overall, this one isn't as good as the debut album but it's still better than the last few Queensryche releases he was a part of.
Opeth Morningrise
Opeth Orchid
Oranssi Pazuzu Muukalainen Puhuu
Orphalis The Birth Of Infinity
Our Hollow, Our Home Hartsick
Ultra-melodic metalcore. My main issue is that it just feels too manufactured... screaming during the verses, singing during the choruses -- chugs followed by guitar harmonies followed by super melodic tangent back to chugs....
Out Came The Wolves Strange Fate
Pain of Salvation One Hour by the Concrete Lake
Pain of Salvation Scarsick
Pale Honey Fiction
Panic Room Equilibrium
Paradise Lost Medusa
I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I think Paradise Lost have moved too far back towards their roots. The band were always at their best when they were doing something other than straight-up doom. Whether it was the metal infused doom of Icon and Draconian Times, or the elctronic tinged works starting with Symbol of Life. To me, this is just too bland compared to what they've proven they can do.
Pati Yang Jaszczurka
Pennywise All or Nothing
Perturbator New Model
Phinehas thegodmachine
Phobocosm Bringer Of Drought
This is some pretty visceral doom/death metal. Great stuff.
Pierce the Veil Misadventures
PJ Harvey Let England Shake
Porcupine Tree Lightbulb Sun
Primal Fear Nuclear Fire
Primal Fear Seven Seals
Princess Chelsea Lil' Golden Book
Progenie Terrestre Pura oltreLuna
Definitely an ambitious death metal band. I hear sci-fi sounds, ethnic stylings, melodic death metal, progressive tendencies, and the songs are pretty damn long. My only issue is that it feels a litle too unfocused and a little too unrefined so none of the songs really maintain their draw through their entire runtime.
Prong Beg to Differ
Prong Ruining Lives
This is good, but Prong have lost the intensity that made their first handful of albums so awesome. They've dropped the industrial influences and the riffs have loosened up considerably. To me, there's almost a catchy, mainstream, punk influence in the sound. This is definitely their most instant album and their most accessible -- for whatever that may be worth.
Prong X (No Absolutes)
This is a heavier, darker, thrashier version of the Prong that most people would be used to. It's still nothing spectacular, but it's better than they've been in awhile.
Protest the Hero Scurrilous
Psychopomps The Best Of
Psyclon Nine [Order of the Shadow: Act I]

Radical Face The Family Tree: The Branches
Radical Face The Family Tree: The Leaves
Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool
Raventale After
Raventale Transcendence
Raventale Bringer of Heartsore
Red Moon Architect Fall
Atmospheric doom/death metal. Heavier and darker than the EP, but it seems to be missing something to really make it stand out.
Regina Spektor Soviet Kitsch
Regina Spektor 11:11
Reve La Marionnette
Revelations of Rain Marble Shades of Despair
Revelations of Rain Revelations of Rain
Rie Sinclair On the 5th Floor
Rie Sinclair A Moment You Never Dreamed
Rise Against Wolves
It's defintely no Sufferer and the Witness, but it's more energetic and 'punk' than their last few and that will have to do.
Rise of Avernus L Appel Du Vide
Symphonic, progressive and bombastic doom. The main vocal style is death growls, but there are occasional female
vocals and clean male vocals. It's pretty damn good and one of the albums that will definitely grow through the year.
Rob Zombie Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor
Rosetta Utopioid
Rotting Christ Khronos
Rotting Christ A Dead Poem
Rotting Christ Genesis
Rotting Christ Triarchy of The Lost Lovers
RPWL Wanted
Mellow, diverse, progressive alt. rock. I could see it appealing to fans of Anathema and Porcupine Tree. It definitely has that 'Fear of a Blank Planet' feel to it. The only issue is that despite all the cool instrumentation that they use from time to time, the album itself feels a bit bland and one-dimensional a lot of the time.
Rush Retrospective III: 1989 - 2008
Rush Retrospective II: 1981 - 1987
Rush Test for Echo
Rush Moving Pictures
Rush Power Windows
Russian Circles Station
Russian Circles Guidance
Sadhak Sadhak
This is pretty good, but the vocals lower the overall quality. Who remembers a band called Decoryah? They had the same issue.
Saille Eldritch
Samantha James Rise
Sannhet Revisionist
Instrumental metal that doesn't include any shredding. Instead they kind of riff their way from beginning to end utilizing a mix of post metal and black metal. Also, more of a focus on the black metal tempos than Tempel.
Sara Bareilles Between the Lines: Live at the Fillmore
Sargeist Feeding the Crawling Shadows
Very raw and atmospheric black metal. I don't hate it like a lot of other people seem to, but I've also never heard their previous stuff.
Satyricon Nemesis Divina
Satyricon Rebel Extravaganza
Saviour Let Me Leave
This really reminds me of 'A Liar Wrote This' album from A Bunny, A Bear but leaning more towards the post hardcore sound. Same male/female back-and-forth with the female vocals providing all of the hooks. I really like her voice though. Her accentuation is pretty unique. Unfortunately, the album starts to drag as it goes on.
Scale the Summit V
Scale the Summit In a World of Fear
Instrumental progressive elevator music. It's not bad, but there's zero energy to this stuff. Even the more energetic stuff such as 'Witch House' just feels so sterile.
Scorn Lick Forever Dog
SECRETS Fragile Figures
See You Soon Don't Give Up
Sentenced The Funeral Album
Septicflesh The Great Mass
Septicflesh Titan
Another small step forward for these symphonic death metal masters. This will definitely take a few listens to set in, but it's a pretty great release and will definitely appeal to those that liked their previous releases.

Sixx:A.M. Prayers For The Damned (Vol. 1)
Really well composed alt. rock from the key songwriter of Motley Crue. They're all good musicians and their vocalist is above average for the genre.
Skeletonwitch The Apothic Gloom
Skinny Puppy Weapon
Skinny Puppy The Greater Wrong of the Right
Skyharbor Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos
Slayer World Painted Blood
Slayer Diabolus in Musica
Sleep Party People Floating
Kind of reminds me of 1980s The Cure meets Trespasser Williams.
Sleeper Agent Celabrasion
Sleigh Bells Treats
Sleigh Bells Kid Kruschev
Slipknot Slipknot
Slowdive Slowdive
Slowdive's previous release is one of my all-time favorites, but this one just doesn't hit me the same way. It's still some solid shoegze, but the other one just had this abstract ambience that is totally lacking on this release. As odd as it is to say, these sound more like 'songs' than "Soulvaki" and it just isn't as good.
Soen Lykaia
This is a good album, but it is way too lethargic for me. I liked the energy of the second release. At least they don't sound like they're ripping off Tool anymore.
Soilwork The Chainheart Machine
Solar Fragment A Spark Of Deity
Son of Aurelius Under a Western Sun
These guys used to be death metal? Could have fooled me. This album is well-done modern progressive metal with occasional 'extreme metal' influences. The clean vocals need some work, but overall I like it.

Very by-the-book 90s era melodic black metal with occasional slower parts, but it's done pretty well.
Sunpocrisy Samaroid Dioramas
Svart Crown Abreaction
Reminds me of a less frantic Ulcerate, which is just fine with me.
Swallow the Sun Hope
Swans To Be Kind
Dark and brooding. The songs go on for too long sometimes, but it's good from time to time. What kind of music is this anyway? Probably falls into one of those 'post' genres.

The Big Pink Empire Underground
Poppy electro-alternative is probably the best way to describe this. I liked their debut, but wasn't a fan of their second release. This EP puts them back on track with atmospheric poppy alternative with some good beats.
The Black Dahlia Murder Abysmal
I've never heard their other albums, but this is some decent melodic death metal. It's more aggressive then most bands that fall into that genre.

The Haunted rEVOLVEr
The Hunna 100
Definitely reminds me of the best of Anberlin's sound. Even the vocalist sounds similar.
The Interbeing Among the Amorphous
A cool blend of industrial, metal, and even a bit of Djent. Everything on here is really good, but it does all kind of blend together.
The Kennedy Veil Imperium
The Letter Black Pain
What happened to the wholesome alt. rock band that released those previous albums? They've gone the way of New Years Day by dropping the safe alternative rock for a heavier, shock-rock, kind of style. Now they remind me more of bands such as New Years Day, Korn, and In This Moment.
The Material Tomorrow
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Question the Answers
The Monolith Deathcult Tetragrammaton
The Moth Gatherer The Comfortable Low
The Mute Gods Do Nothing till You Hear from Me
These guys remind me of Pure Reason Revolution. Kind of a electro-disco progressive kind of sound.
The Nova Echo The Nova Echo
The Offspring Ixnay on the Hombre
The Prids Do I Look Like I’m In Love?
The Quiet Kind The Quiet Kind
The Raven Age Darkness Will Rise
Kind of a modern take on the doom sound made famous by Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, and Isole. I'm not going to lie, though, the modern influence in the music seems to take a lot from Trivium (around the Crusade/Shogun era).
The Static Dynamic The Static Dynamic

Old School Voivod goes black metal, but with a much more technical edge. I really like the music, but the vocals don't really do it for me.
Vello Leaf Tonight, I'm Leaving
Verite Living
Verite Somewhere in Between
Very poppy electro/dubstep-ish music. So, basicaaly pop with a bit of actual identity.
Versus The World Homesick/Roadsick
Kind of alt. rock-ish pop punk. A little too mellow for my liking, but still pretty good.
Vigilante The New Resistance: North American Special Edition
This is a pretty cool album. The industrial metal is energetic and heavy and the use of guest musicians on every song keeps things feeling fresh from beginning to end. Standout tracks include "The New Resistance (feat. Die Krupps)"
Vintersorg Till Fjälls Del II
Violet Cold Magic Night
Viza Made In Chernobyl
Votum Time Must Have a Stop
VRTRA My Bones Hold a Stillness

A cool, mellow dream pop / post punk release. It never falls into the trap of getting too atmospheric or droning and, thankfully, the vocals are pretty good at creating some nice hooks despite the lack of actual strong choruses.
Warpaint Heads Up
Washed Out Within and Without
Wear Your Wounds WYW
Weaver At The Loom Before Now, Was Then
Weaver At The Loom I Was Searching and I Found
While Heaven Wept Triumph: Tragedy: Transcendence
White Empress Rise of the Empress
Kind of reminds me of a Moonspell meets Epica kind of vibe. It's not a totally accurate description because these guys aren't really a symphonic band and they don't use the cheese-goth vocals.... but I'm sticking to that description anyway.

Remix album that actually isn't bland and repetitive. Obviously, if you don't like the original album, you won't like this one either. The originals are still better, by the way.
Wumpscut DJ Dwarf XII
Xandria Neverworld's End
Xandria Sacrificium
Great symphonic metal. Great female vocals and the music is light on the cheese.
Xandria Fire & Ashes

YOB Clearing The Path To Ascend
This is pretty good, but I just can't pay attention to it for too long. It all kinds of blends together into one single plodding tempo and tone.

Zirrus Kulm
Modern progressive metal. The vocalist will take some getting used to.

Female-fronted psychedelic doom. It's just too monotonous to keep my interest, though.
Devilment Devilment II - The Mephisto Waltzes
Devin Townsend Infinity
Diary of Dreams Alive
Dido Girl Who Got Away
This is still good, but a disappointment too. She has a good voice for this kind of mellow electronic pop, but she has lost the excitement factor. Her first album was a cool mix of actual electro elements combined with a slick, mellow pop direction. This is just slick, mellow, pop.
Die Sektor Applied Structure In A Void
Disturbed Immortalized
Disturbed come back with another Disturbed album. And it's as good as their third/ fourth albums, which makes it better than the last one.
Downfall of Gaia Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay
Draconian Sovran
DragonForce Maximum Overload
The riffs are definitely thrashier than the previous albums and the song tempos/styles/whatever are more diverse. It's still definitely Dragonforce (With a weaker vocalist these days), though.
DragonForce The Power Within
Emiliana Torrini Rarities
Emphasis (Estonia) Revival

Basically an Epica clone without the death metal vocals. Not bad.

Foscor Entrance to the Shadows' Village

Very atmospheric and abstract funeral doom. It's like the background music to hell. Pretty damn good.
Gardenian Sindustries
Gemma Ray Lights Out Zoltar
Gemma Ray It's A Shame About Gemma Ray
Godlike In Ruin Reborn
Pretty good for a new band. These guys' sound is a little more streamlined and consistent than BTBAM, but it's still a good comparison.
Grave Pleasures Motherblood
Graveworm Collateral Defect
Harakiri for the Sky Aokigahara
Another melodic post black metal release that sounds good in small doses, but turns out to kind of be a one-trick pony.
Headspace All That You Fear Is Gone
Kind of equal parts modern and traditional prog. I hear pieces of Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, and even Pain of Salvation, but there's nothing that will grab ahold of you and keep you coming back.
Helms Alee Sleepwalking Sailors
This is some pretty good sludge metal. The vocalist kind of reminds me of a hybrid of the guy from Fugazi and the guy
from Filter. The rhythm section is what really keeps this going, though.
Hiidenhauta Noitia on Minun Sukuni
Raw, atmospheric, melodic black metal with occasional female backing vocals. Definitely has that nineties black metal vibe. Also has some subtle doom elements as well. Not bad, not bad at all.

Definitely Old school death metal. Individual songs are really good and even a handful at a time can be enjoyable, but the total focus on OSDM makes the album drag as a whole.
Megadeth Hidden Treasures
Melanie Pain My Name
MMOTHS Luneworks
Electronic soundscapes that never drop into overly quiet or repetitive territory. The 'songs' are very lush and melodic, but still feel similar to Sven Vath or Future Sound of London.
Monsterworks Earth
Monsterworks Precautionary Principle
Morning Parade Pure Adulterated Joy
Kind of an atmospheric alt. rock. Not too bad, but missing a bit more of a hook.
Mother of Millions Human
This is listed as progressive metal, but it kind of just sounds like mainstream radio metal to me, but maybe just a little heavier in places.
Mutemath Odd Soul

New Model Army & Nobody Else
New Model Army Fuck Texas, Sing For Us
Novembers Doom Hamartia
One Machine The Distortion of Lies and the Overdriven Truth
This could be so awesome, but I can't get past the vocals. This album has all the classic, prog/thrash riffs that you'd expect from Steve Smyth (Testament, Nevermore) and all the shredding solos, too. Unfortunately for me, it also has one of those screechy classic metal vocalists that I just don't do well with. Kind of the classic Iced Earth vocalist style.

Polaris (AUS) The Mortal Coil
Pooma Persuader

Solefald World Metal. Kosmopolis Sud
The spiritual successor to Neonism (my least favorite Solefald album). There are some really cool tracks on here, but there are also some straight up duds. Kind of a let down, especially after how good the previous release was.
Stabbing Westward Ungod
Stahlmann Bastard
Stone Sour Hydrograd

This album would sit comfortably between Svartalvheim and The Cainian Chronicle. That means there's none of the terrible cheese that ruined every album after The Cainian Chronicle. That also means that this album is more straight-forward black metal than the more accessible Cainian Chronicle album. There's nothing that really sets this album apart from most other stereotypical black metal releases, but it's good.

Damn, I know this is a "best of..." but they should have left the really old songs off. The album starts with the new stuff and it's really good, but as the songs get older they drop a little more and more until it's just unlistenable. One thing is for sure, it definitely shows how far the vocalist has come.

Candlemass Death Magic Doom
I enjoy Rob Lowe's vocals on Solitude Aeturnus and I even enjoyed them on Candlemass' previous release, but there's something lacking here. His attempts at an aggressive delivery largely fall flat and he doesn't utilize his falsetto as well as he can. It's not entirely his fault, though, every song on this album seems to be a little too long with not enough riffs to fill them out. That means that the riffs that are present end up being used so often that regardless of how good they sounded when they first started you just want them to stop long before they actually do. Despite all of this, the album is still good but it's nothing worth going crazy over.

This is some strange, noisy, technical metal. The music is all over the place, but never seems to veer out of control. The biggest hurdle to enjoying the album is the vocals. The death metal vocals are fine, the Devin Townsend-ish metal vocals are fine -- but those screeches make it hard for me to ever come back to this.

This was a surprise. Their first album was boring and kind of bland. The vocals were mixed too high and the riffs sucked. Now they're suddenly writing decent and chunky riffs and have even thrown some aggression into the later tracks. The female vocals also don't dominate the music anymore. This is one of the better gothic metal albums I've heard this year... could eventually be a 3.5

Kind or reminds me of a more metal-oriented mid-era Sepultura kind of sound. Nothing outstanding, but no real flaws either.

They've become too serious and formulaic. I know a lot of people disliked their previous album but I was a big fan of their mindless frat boy, directionless metalcore/pop. This one isn't nearly as good because it lacks the energy and aggression and humor.

Fates Warning Inside Out
Fates Warning Night on Brocken
Fates Warning's debut album written long before Frank Aresti, Mark Zonder or Ray Alder were in the band. It is a rough representation of what they would become by the release of "Awaken the Guardian". This has its proggy moments but is more entrenched in the metal of the time. Its a good album if you're looking for old school metal, and the song "Damnation" is almost worth getting the album for all by itself.

This is one excellent black metal release. I can't believe that this is only a demo. The music is flawless and fast as hell. It also has a raw sound, but a good production (if that makes any sense). Despite being old and a demo, the musicianship this band is known for is still on display all over the place. I can't find this for sale anywhere and it's not even mentioned on the band's website so find this any way you can... and someone write a review for it ;)

Featuring a lot of the same people that would end up being in The Sugarcubes (including Bjork), this is definitely a challenging album to get into. Equal parts post punk and avant garde weirdness.

The band have moved away from the blatant Evanescence worship and replaced it with a blatant metalcore vibe. The female vocals are still a little 'over-emotive' and in French but they're getting better. On the other hand, the newly-introduced growls/rasps are pretty terrible and ruin every part they're on. Musically, the metalcore vibe has given them a much-needed edge.
