Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Blackbraid Blackbraid II
What at first sounds like a relatively standard riff forward bm album unfolds into probably the best album of 2023. Twilight hymn of ancient blood invokes black metal?s thrashing roots, moss covered bones on the altar of the moon is a pitch perfect representation of and logical next step for this brand of melodic and cascadian-adjacent black metal. The spirit returns is the only song I?ve seen a black metal play live and a pit started for. I?ll say less, listen to it.
Cave In Final Transmission
Fuck all of you indeed, this album is a tribute to Caleb and his last writings. Sorry he didn?t have time to flesh the ideas out before he died. RIP Caleb.
Charli XCX Vroom Vroom
Cobalt Slow Forever
Converge Jane Doe
Converge's masterpiece, every track will leave a lasting impression and the album as a whole is simply spectacular.
Convulsing Perdurance
Ulcerate is great and all but this is the first dissodeath album that appeals to me as a whole and not as an esoteric niche that I?m only rarely in the mood for. The musicality here is next level. An avalanche of riffs to the fucking skull is about right.
Cursive The Ugly Organ
This album came out of nowhere and completely captivated me upon first lesson. After spending some time delving into Cursive's discography, this album stands as their crowning achievement to date. Songs like the opening barrage of "Some Red Handed Sleight of Hand" and "Art is Hard," as well as late album highlight "A Gentleman Caller", show Tim Kasher's frenzied and frenetic post-hardcore guitar acrobatics, while slower, more pensive cuts like "The Recluse" and "Driftwood" take a more refelctive side with great lyrics and a twinkly style of guitar delivery more common in emo bands. No two songs sound the same, and the whole album's overarching theme (NOT concept, this isn't a concept album,) make it a really special listen. Musically engaging post-hardcore frenzies with desperate vocals and impeccably penned lyrics all lined with the dramatics of instrumentation gleaned from cellos and organs give The Ugly Organ a depth that I've absolutely loved diving into lately. Check out this year's remastered and expanded version for the extra tracks, but I gotta say I prefer the mix on this original master to the new one. I could take or leave most of the rest of their discography, but fuck, this album is amazing.

A beautifully packaged collector's item. The posters are nice and the foldout Holland 1945 slip is awesome. The Ferris Wheel on Fire EP makes the whole thing worth it with some of the best recordings that were never released. "My Dream Girl Don't Exist" is heart wrenching.

Swans To Be Kind
Swans Swans Are Dead
Swans Deliquescence
The album that really cements swans as being at the peak of their powers as a live entity. The Knot is 40+ minutes of some of the band?s most mesmerizing music, and the version here is the culmination of developing it for years on the road. The version of The Glowing Man we get here takes every shortcoming the original has, expands its length, and the hulking behemoth that results is the crowing jewel of this era, in my opinion. And there?s there?s still five other tracks that are all quality.

Holy fucking hell... never ones to be content with doing anything but pushing their sound to illogical extremes on each and every album, Dillinger are going out with a massive bang here. The sound is an amalgamation of their career as a band and each album shows it's influence. Their trademark technicely freakouts are laced with jazzy breaks of dissonant guitar and a heaping of tracks reach a new level of scope with the addition of strings and brass orchestra backing. This album is weird, this album is over the top, this album is absolute insanity, but most importantly this album is unabashedly and unequivocally The Dillinger Escape Plan in peak form, leaving us with a seething love letter of an album as their farewell.

Trophy Scars Hospital Music for the Aesthetics of Language
This is perfection incarnate when it comes to music in my opinion. Far surpassing the likes of Traced In Air, Jane Doe, The Holy Bible, Blackwater Park, or any other Sputnik-Appointed classics, I find myself entranced every single time i listen to Trophy Scars' breakthrough EP. Jerry is a god.
Trophy Scars Never Born, Never Dead
These motherfuckers just do not know how to make a bad album. Not a 2.
Trophy Scars Holy Vacants
Holy Vacants may be the greatest musical achievement of my lifetime thus far. The album continuously
dishes out moments that illicit everything from shivers to damn near tears. Qeres goes balls to the wall
and sees the return of Jerry Jones' Converge-esque screaming freak outs, Gutted and Chicago
Typewriter just drip with tangible resentment and bitterness, and Hagiophobia still rocks the fuck out
even after more or less staying on repeat since February for me. Archangel and Burning Mirror embody
everything that Trophy Scars is and have been working towards since Darts to the Sea and Hospital
Music first fucked my ear drums into submission years ago. And then there's Everything Disappearing.
Jfc. This is the easiest 5 I've ever given, and it somehow not only met, but exceeded every expectation
and bit of hype I had built up for this release.

Alcest Spiritual Instinct

Alcest abandons the black metal and is all the better for it. Shelter is the duo's most fully realized album. Impeccable production coupled with tight songwriting that climaxes and crescendos with beauty. The first great release of 2014.

Boris Noise
Handily destroys Praparat and any of the Year of Boris trilogy. A distinctively "Boris" sound permeates the album, their heavy rock sound refined to a pinpoint and drenched in shoegazey effects and delightful passages of crushing sludge and ethereal post rock crescendos in equal measure. Shades of all the different sounds of the band make an appearance, and the album is all the more dynamic and pleasing for it. Trails only behind Holy Vacants for album of 2014 easily at this point in time.
Boris Live At Third Man Records
Boris Dear
this fucker is heavier than a bomb, that other guy is talking out of his ass, album totally deserves a 4 avg at least
Boris NO
This is so god damn excellent. This is the album that should?ve been Heavy Rocks 2011. And I love HR2011.
Boris With Merzbow Gensho
This is a thoroughly weird exercise in noise, and it delivers on all fronts. Boris masterfully drone their way through some of their older "hits" reworked into lumbering beasts bearing more resemblance to Sunn O))) than their more recent pop tinged outings. Merzbow's companion piece of oftentimes obnoxious harsh noise is meant to be payed side by side with the Boris album, and creates a hellish soundscape that fans of this style will relish. It's good to hear this ridiculous heaviness from Boris again, complete with Atsuo's much improved screams working their way into some of the cuts.

Deftones Diamond Eyes
I listened to this very thoroughly before deciding to rate this and have decided that a 5 is the only appropriate rating.
Taking from all of their previous releases... the heaviness of Adrenaline and Around The Fur, the atmosphere of White
Pony, the catchiness of the Self Titled, and the diversity of Saturday Night Wrist, Deftones have crafted their magnum
opus. And i'm on board with the whole Diamond Eyes/Owl thing being a nod to Chi... it makes sense, and definitely
gives the whole affair a personal feel.

Electric Wizard Dopethrone
Electric Wizard Time to Die
After sacrificing some heaviness to more rock-oriented song structures on Black Masses, The Wizard are back in top form and ready to fucking murder your face with heaviness and slow, doomy, dirges with topics varying from getting stoned and murdering people to... Getting stoned and performing satanic rituals. "Incense for the Damned" is absolutely monolithic in both studio and live format, and is sure to be a staple of their setlists for the foreseeable future, along with "Time to Die," which it effortlessly melts into after it's murky, downtuned conclusion. Shorter cuts like "Sadiowitch" hearken back to the more concise, riff-laden, mid-paced rock songs from Black Masses in the best ways possible. The whole album shows the best of the Wizard spectrum, and is a welcome return to their doom roots after the last album.

Enter Shikari The Spark
This is absolutely criminally underrated and one of their best albums, The Spark takes Enter Shikari to their illogical extremes as a full blown pop band. Centered around Rou?s vintage synthesizer and ever improving singing, once you embrace the sound the band has chosen this go-around, the album unfolds into an overblown, melodramatic, haphazardly assembled odyssey that shouldn?t work on any level, but in the end it somehow does, and hasn?t that been their MO since the start?

Fucked Up Dose Your Dreams
Sprawling, progressive, weird, and trippy as fuck. The main issue I had with Fucked Up was that having high
concept stories shouted at me in the same punk yell for an hour wore thin, and Dose Your Dreams rectifies this
problem by adding 20 minutes more of music and letting their freak flag fly high... and somehow, it works
wonderfully. Saxophone, acid rock, Pink Floyd style guitar passages, hardcore and punk outbursts, shoegaze, a
smattering of guest vocals, disco and techno breaks... Fucked Up throw it all at the wall here and it makes the
albums bloated runtime a non object- you?ll just be excited to see what rabbit they pull out of the hat for the next
track. Highly entertaining, doubly so if you?re high as a kite, if it weren?t for The Armed, this would be the single
weirdest thing to happen to heavy music in 2018.r
Gates (USA-NJ) Bloom and Breathe
Glassing From the Other Side of the Mirror
A new peak for Glassing. Having comfortably stepped into the void left by deafheaven?s foray into pure shoegaze, they add enough of their own spin so as to not come off as trend chasing mimicry.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
Godspeed You! Black Emperor 'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress'
I had the privelege of seeing GYBE a few years ago, so I am vaguely familiar with their monster of a track referred to as
"Behemoth," so my excitement was somewhat dampened. But let's be honest, that show was a long time ago and I smoke a lot of
weed so fuck if I remembered that shit. The studio version and new album from GYBE is a massive behemoth indeed, with biting
guitars building to a classic god'spee climax in the opener followed by two tracks of visceral, pounding, monolithic drone. Stupid
title aside, "Piss Crowns are Trebled" stands as the band's single heaviest moment and possibly their best song since the Slow Riot
days. Holy fuck, I cannot overstate the last track's power. Forget what you think you know from the bootlegs. Listen to this album.

Hammock Everything and Nothing
An easy contender for post rock album of the year, Everything and Nothing is Hammock honing in on their most
direct and accessible sound in years. The ambient soundscapes that have dominated their recent albums are in
full effect, but here they're aided by more soaring post rock strings, guitars, and driving percussion than have
ever been present in their sound. Hearkening back to the instrumentals of Kenotic and Raising Your Voice... With
the brilliant atmospherics of Departure Songs, adding in a heaping of ethereal vocals on a handful of tracks
makes Everything and Nothing not only the band's most realized and full sounding album to date, but also
arguably their best. In a discography as expansive and consistently good as Hammock's, that's no small feat.
Hammock Love in the Void
Beyond excited to hear the energy from everything and nothing making a return. Gods becoming memories and the title track are absolutely stunningly beautiful
Haste the Day Best of the Best
Pretty much checks all the notches off on the best HTD songs throughout their career. A nice little compilation for those new to the band to gear up for the release of Coward. The lack of Substance from their debut EP/Burning Bridges is a bit saddening through.
Haste the Day Coward
This shit goes fucking hard. I knew I was right to be excited by the duo of Jimmy and Stephen, and Coward is led by an absolutely monstrous harsh vocal setup courtesy of the two veterans. The riffs come hard and fast, at times sludgy and at others breakneck, delving away from the band?s metalcore roots for a more post metal oriented approach. They even dabble in shoe gaze during ?Shadow,? which currently sticks out as my favorite. Seriously looking forward to getting to know this new treading of a high school staple.

the feeling of dropping a needle onto the only "new" music NMH has put out in over a decade is one not easily rivaled in emotional awesomeness.
Norma Jean Wrongdoers
Norma Jean Polar Similar
Polar Similar sees Norma Jean going into uncharted territory with their heaviest and most experimental release to date, the end result of which is a wholly satisfying journey through a space/humanity on earth and beyond theme. The album is an eclectic bag of sounds that uses the best elements of a mature metalcore sound with newfound levels of heaviness via dabbling in post metal and dirty, sludgy, towering riffs juxtaposed with the ever present brief hardcore freak outs that are Norma Jean's bread and butter. The two ends of the spectrum transition back and forth between (and often in) tracks and makes for a smooth and engaging listen.

Scale the Summit The Collective
The first "5" of 2011. This is AOTY material right here, and at the very least SOTY in "Whales." So much variance and diversity, and one of the only instrumental metal albums i've heard that so perfectly conveys emotion.
Scale the Summit V
It is so nice to hear Scale the Summit get back in touch with their more chill side after the fantastic but scattershot "The Migration." V finds the band showing restraint when necessary and cutting loose with the shredding when appropriately badass instead of barreling headfirst into a breakneck pace that rarely lets up. The songs ebb and flow and have gorgeous dynamics. The production is fantastic, lending a crisp and clean sheen to everything but the lead guitar, which squeals and roars with a raw ferocity intentionally absent from the rest of the band's mix. All in all, this album's fucking goooood.
Sear Bliss Eternal Recurrence
Senses Fail Pull the Thorns from Your Heart
Holy balls... The new Senses Fail has arrived in full fucking force with Pull the Thorns From Your Heart. The
album rips and tears its way through the track list with a newly energized Buddy Nielsen heading the charge with his most
empowered and passionate performance on vocals to date. The guitars race through riff after riff and the bass and drums round
out the rhythm section with a rumbling and dynamic low end to fill out the aural assault. Sparse, but lovely bits of slower moments
with a hint of spacey shoegaze provide some breathing room at the right moments before lurching back into the breakneck pace
that dominates the album. A great release that I cant wait to dig into more thoroughly.

So Hideous Last Poem/First Light
So Hideous Laurestine
This is an incredible album. So Hideous takes the semi-standard blackgaze fare of their back catalogue and supplement it massively with the 30-piece First Light Orchestra. The orchestra was introduced on their last album but the potential not fully realized until this beauty of an release, one long running song broken up into seven tracks. The metal sections are fewer and further between on this single movement of music than usual for So Hideous, making way for spacious post rock and classical expanses that ebb, flow, climax, and crescendo with grace. The lower frequency of heavy climaxes coupled with their sheer crushing heaviness makes them all the more effective, and the post rock sections breathe new life into a genre that has been all but forgotten. A serious AOTY contender.
State Faults Clairvoyant
Absolutely floored by this. State Faults has surpassed the already admittedly high expectations I had for this album.
Stray from the Path Rising Sun
Stumbleine Things Don't Sparkle Like They Used To
The genes that comprise 1/3 of Swarms, it?s easy to see where their sound is rooted when listening to
Stumbleine. This EP is a fine entry point to ambient electronica with a heavily guitar based sound that leans
towards post rock even more so than Swarms at times.
Sun Kil Moon Universal Themes
As my first exposure to Kozolek and his vast catalogue, I picked a hell of a place to start. The lyrics flow out of him endlessly and effortlessly, weaving affecting tales specific to Mark's life, but with a sentiment that really is universal and relatable to anyone with an hour to spare and listen.
Super Snake Leap of Love
Holy shiiiiiit. Trophy Scars are reincarnated (basically, their frontman at least) and sound as if they've been binging on bong hits, tabs of acid, and Black Sabbath jam sessions. Leap of Love is a roaring album jam packed with over an hour of psychedelia, massive riffs, and Jerry Jones' trademark Tom Waits/pirate gargling a mouthful of marbles vocals that have been sorely missing from the music landscape since the dissolution of Trophy Scars three years ago. Easily the best thing to come out so far this year, and I don't see much changing that opinion any time soon.
Swans Soundtracks for the Blind
Swans The Seer
Swans Not Here / Not Now
Some amazing renditions of songs from the seer, some amazing previews of what would become to be kind. Swans can
command sound like few other bands in existence can. If deliquescence didn’t exist, this would be the peak of the band
in a live setting. And yes I’m including the masterpiece that is swans are dead in that.
Swans The Gate
Every sentiment that applies to not here not now applies to The Gate. The versions of songs from TBK are sharpened to a razors edge after some time on the road, and the previews of cuts from The Glowing Man are a fascinating snapshot for other autistic weirdos who consume every second of music swans creates and loves noting the differences and developments that would be made from stage to studio.

Vampire Weekend Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City
Vampire Weekend shatters my (admittedly low) expectations with this album. It's not a collection of transparent pop songs this time around. The progression in their sound is admirable, and their sound has gone to a really nice, airy, upbeat place within the congested indie pop scene. Best surprise of 2013 yet.
Vampire Weekend Only God Was Above Us
Modern Vampires is probably always going to be their peak for me, but this is delightful. A great release AND it pisses off Sputnik's resident edgelord who couldn't get a real job reviewing music. Wins all around.

Apparently because this isn't just one sick drum solo it's lame? The stripped back underoath songs are great listens that provide a completely different vibe than when we first heard them over a decade ago, and the originals are a nice progression for Aaron's solo sound.

Bayside Vacancy
Not many bands this late in their career are still putting out worthwhile albums, and fewer still seem to enjoy topping themselves as consistently as Bayside. Tackling the most fiercely personal topics in the band's career leads to an album with heart-on-sleeve lyrics that have nicely risen above the melodramatic emo drivel on their (still awesome) earlier albums. "Pretty Vacant" works wondrously as an anthem for anyone approaching the middle years of their adulthood and constantly pushing that ever present existential dread out of their consciousness. Clever lyrics and tight guitar work throughout make a hell of a pop punk album that leans more towards the punk side of things.

Bea5t Empathy Is a Gift
Beach House Depression Cherry
The single makes me stupid excited for this album... it's gorgeous. Aaaaand the full album is a wholly beautiful, hazy trip through
atmosphere and melody. The run time passes by in a flash despite, or perhaps because of the album's seemingly directionless and
lackadaisical approach to dream pop. As always with a Beach House album, the best word to sum up Depression Cherry is
ethereal. A great album for these hot and hazy summer nights.

I'll be damned. It's not bad. And for the first time I can actually say yeah, its good. Excellent even. Antivist blowwwws though.
Bring Me The Horizon That's the Spirit
I wanted so badly to hate this, everything about it from the direction they took their sound in to the oftentimes insipid lyricism is so
far removed from what I typically listen to. But earworm songs like Drown, Doomed, Blasphemy, and Throne beckoned me back
for repeat listens, maybe for amusement, and the record grew on me quickly in a big way. To be honest, being a pop band suits
BMTH way more than the pseudo-intellectual post-metal gear solid bullshit that was Sempiternal, and they were never really a
good deathcore band despite what role nostalgia plays in my opinion of their earlier releases. One of the bigger surprises of the
year and undeniably fun, but I guess how much you like it depends how much you bought into the idea of Bring Me The Horizon
being a post rock band.

CHON Woohoo!
CHON with pristine production and some vocals thrown into the mix. It's a wholly satisfying little EP, I just hope they branch out some more on the full length.
CHON finally drops a full length and it's goooood. Dropping the slight bits of heaviness they retained,
these songs are chock full of lots of grooves, and are technical as all hell while remaining terminally chill
throughout the album's brief duration. They've tweaked and perfected the formula from their first three
EP's, added some flair and influence from contemporaries Polyphia (this is wayyyy better than them), and
use vocals sparingly to craft one of the best albums of the year so far.

Deafheaven Roads to Judah
Deafheaven New Bermuda
Deafheaven Ordinary Corrupt Human Love
A slower, more plodding and post rock centric Deafheaven. The album plays out like blackgaze by way of This Will Destroy You, and occasionally exuberantly bursts into some upbeat soloing that sounds ripped from an anime soundtrack or even a power metal album. How cool that is is largely up to the listener, but I find this new direction a welcome change of pace after the largely by the numbers slog that was New Bermuda.

Despised Icon Beast
Everything I could have wanted out of this reunion. A no holds barred blast from the deathcore past complete with pig squeals and breakdowns galore, Despised Icon don't waste a single second on Beast, and the album revels in its sound. No shame turning this on and blaring it for a good old time that reminds me of high school.
Devil Sold His Soul Belong/Betray
SO good to hear this band back on their game. Acres finally has some competition in this genre. New vocalist is great, though despite being improved ten fold, I think they should just nix the clean singing
Devin Townsend The Puzzle
Leave it to Sputnik in 2021 to shit on one of Devin?s best albums for being ambient when it was marketed as? an ambient album.

Completely massive. Plays like a sequel to Synchestra or Accelerated Evolution and masterfully blends Devin's ultra cheesy prog sensibilities with Addicted-era pop and metal. Easily the best DTP album since the original quadriollogy.

Went into "The Mindsweep" with no to low expectations. I loved ES's first EPs and their first two albums but lost interest after that point. Pleasantly surprised by the mishmash of genres, influences, and amount of maturity present here. Shades of Gorillaz, Serj Tankian, Boards of Canada, Radiohead, and a heaping of refined Shikari style adds up to a great, and pretty surprising start to 2015.

Explosions in the Sky All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone
Explosions in the Sky The Wilderness
Otherworldly and ethereal, carrying hits of dream pop, shoegaze, and some heavier moments than Explosions
ever really explored, The Wilderness sees the band finally branching out into some new and refreshing territory.
The production itself is unique and fits the atmosphere of the album perfectly. It loses momentum in some places,
but the whole affair is a much more subtle and nuanced one than the band's past works. It's nice to hear
something different out of EITS after all this time. Disintegration Anxiety and Infinite Orbit are some jams.

Frank Turner Poetry of the Deed
Has so much more weight and presence in the context of his career as it is today, seeing where he is now in terms of popularity bote stateside and in his homeland. It's comforting to know that the high life he's been writing about since "Sleep is for the Week" has come to him at last, and this was the last album where he had to just write and dream about it before it all happened.
Frank Turner The First Three Years
Worth it for the version of Worse Things Happen At Sea on here. So fucking good. So angry. Also, Heartless Bastard Motherfucker.

Frank Turner The Third Three Years
Best comp album yet. The covers are hit and miss, the b sides are entertaining, and the meat of the album are the reinterpretations of the newer songs.
Frank Turner Positive Songs for Negative People
Positive Songs For Negative People embraces unbridled optimism and presents 12 tracks of uplifting, sincere, feel-good music. The sound continues to stray from Turner's acoustic folk punk roots and successfully veers into massive arena sized rock anthems about the upsides of life courtesy of backing band The Sleeping Souls. Lacks the lyrical flourishes, ambiguous metaphor, and extended prose that characterizes his finest works such as Love, Ire, and Song and England Keep My Bones, but PSFNP doesn't really call for it, anyway. Turn it up, sing along, look on the bright side of things, and enjoy.
Full of Hell Garden of Burning Apparitions
Full of Hell Coagulated Bliss
Coagulated bliss is somewhere between just another Full of Hell record and the absolute genius of trumpeting ecstasy. After a few listens I?m not sure exactly where on the spectrum lies, but this is a good improvement over the last two.

Full Of Hell and Primitive Man Suffocating Hallucination
Funeral Diner The Underdark

How did this end up being so damn good? Combines britpop and shoegaze flavors with a good bit of dream pop. No Shows is an early highlight and the best songs are the mid tempo ones towards the tail end of the album like Drugstore Perfume.

As someone who has never given a shit about GosT, Perturbator and the like, this album came out of nowhere and blew my damn mind. Possessor takes the genre and injects a lively blend of black metal, screamed vocals, and all manners of Satanic shit, and the result is what I feel the genre has been striving to be from the start.

Modest Mouse Strangers to Ourselves
Spending some much anticipated time with this album has been great, and Strangers to Ourselves proves to be ironically titled, this is a distinct return to form for MM with numerous nods to their past discography and more upbeat atmosphere and pristine production of their latest works. They sound as comfortable and familiar with who they are as a band now more than ever. Pistol throws back to Tiny Cities Made of Ashes. Shit in your Cut echoes the vibes of Cowboy Dan. The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box unfolds deliberately and pointedly like The Stars are Projectors, but retains the irresistible groove that MM have made their trade in recent years. The whole album feels like a natural amalgamation of the old and the new, a happy balance between the ballsy moodiness of their first three album stretch and their happy go lucky indie dance rock they have introduced into their sound.

Well... No one can accuse Parkway Drive of stagnation anymore, as IRE sees the band branching out in about every possible direction in the realm of rock and metal. The end result is scattershot and eclectic, and for every head scratcher moment (Writings on the Wall, Vice Grip) there comes a wholly unique and entertaining take on metalcore complete with a ripping guitar solo that sounds like it was written for a Boston song (Vicious.) IRE is certainly an entertaining listen to say the least, however it sometimes buckles under its own ambition with occasional ideas that flat out don't work. Don't let that deter you from listening to one of the more interesting releases from one of the biggest old school scene juggernauts still churning out new albums in 2015.

Silverstein This is How the Wind Shifts: Addendum
Silverstein I Am Alive In Everything I Touch
Awh man, the wait for this has been long and arduous but it was worth it. A friend of mine once described Silverstein as the "power metal of metalcore." And honestly, he's not too far from the truth. The band has been penning razor sharp heavy verses that give way to massive and soaring arena rock choruses for years now, well before they had the fanbase to fill out their live shows and actually create that anthemic atmosphere their polished brand of metal brings to the table. I Am Alive In Everything I Touch is Silverstein's sound streamlined to a T with some new dynamics mixed in here and there that were hinted at on their last album. The end result is incredibly gratifying, and I feel that other than the stellar This is How the Wind Shifts that this is the most inspired and sharp the band has sounded since Shipwreck in the Sand, and am loving the intensity of these songs. The singles stand as highlights along with the "Toronto' songs that bookend the album. They slow it down for a beat on tracks like "Late on 6th" and crank the heaviness on tracks like "Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory" and "In the Dark." All in all, the rating is gonna probably fluctuate, but I know I'm digging it.

Those lyrics in Paper Planes holy shit. Should hit right at home for people with pasts similar to Spencer's
Slipknot .5: The Gray Chapter
.5 is actually pretty damn enjoyable. It's more lolgood as opposed to the expected lolbad. Never thought I would enjoy an album from this band in 2014/as a 23 year old man.

Stray from the Path Make Your Own History
Soundtrack to killing old people and punching toddlers.
Stray from the Path Subliminal Criminals
Album is stupid fun and begs to be blasted loud as fuck on a good set of speakers. Stray won't be able to shake the "Hardcore Rage" comparison, but when they're nailing the sound like this, I somehow doubt they care. The lyrics are always on the border of ridiculous, but that's part of the appeal in my eyes, kind of like Leftover Crack and Johnny Hobo.

Swans We Rose from Your Bed with the Sun in Our Head
Here, we are properly introduced to the modern version of swans, taking songs that were pretty good in their studio form and morphing them into something massive, something more. The hint of what was to come with the seer tracks made those who were paying attention well aware that something important was coming from swans in the coming years.
Swarms Red Temple Rain
Wayyyyy better than Low Sun. Captures some of the post rocky ambience and that grungy, rainy night atmosphere that Old Rave's End perfected.

Tame Impala Innerspeaker
"What The Beatles would sound like if they took EVEN MORE drugs with a dash of Led Zeppelin and Cream." ryou had me at hello. album is just wonderful.
Tame Impala Lonerism
Holy balls this is good. What the Beatles would sound like today if they did even more drugs...
Tame Impala Live Versions
What Parker does with these tunes in a live setting is really admirable. The ideas don't always translate from the amazing studio sessions to a live setting, but the album is dubbed live "versions" for a reason. These songs all stand well on their own as interpretations of what we know from TI's full-length albums.
Tame Impala Currents
It took me a few spins to warm up to the new psychedelic meets disco floor sound and lack of guitars, but Currents successfully
creates a spacey, warm, and summery vibe that revels in memories of the past. Eventually is one of the band's strongest tunes to
date, with some delicious, fuzzy riffs to be found that are so sparse elsewhere and simple but effective lyrics. Lead single Let It
Happen is an 8-minute microcosm of what the bulk of Currents is about: danceable disco anthems laced with psychedelic
synthesizers and a palpable sense of nostalgia. It’s not Lonerism, but that’s not a bad thing, and they were never going to top
Innerspeaker anyway, so I’m pretty happy with this.
Tame Impala A Transparent Night (Unofficial)
Why do you care? I swear, the desire to be a junior mod in general is fuckin lame, but doubly so on a site like this. This album is pre cool.

The Body and Full Of Hell Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light
This is one nasty ass piece of music. It bears little resemblance to either of the bands? output, instead opting for a brand of weirdness that extends to the eccentric and straight up odd instead of the macabre and bleak atmospheres that are these bands? bread and butter. A big departure from their last collaboration, the best part about this album is that instead of seeming like two distinct bands at odds with each other, they come together for one of the weirdest highlights of late 2017.

The Fall of Troy OK
The Fall of Troy comes clawing and shredding back to life like the depraved animal they were on their first
few releases. Picking up right where Doppelgänger left off with some of the melodic sensibilities of
Manipulator thrown in, OK is an awesomely fun reunion album from one of post-hardcore's best. Production
and vocals are just fine, by the way. In fact, Erak's shiny new delivery is one of the most entertaining aspects
of the release.

The Tallest Man on Earth Dark Bird Is Home
I thought I had outgrown all this folky bullshit, but Dark Bird Is Home shows me I still a soft spot for a nice
album like this. The word lush best applies to this, and I never expected to enjoy The Tallest Man on Earth
with a full backing band and a luxury studio treatment, let alone enjoy it this much. But god damn if this
isn't a massively pleasant listen. Is that the other side of the house from The Devil & God?

Godspee's other half finally hits the mark with the most realized version of their sound. A concise slab of punky post rock with vocals that fall somewhere between Roger Waters and Win Butler.
Thomas Giles Modern Noise
An awesome, accessible rock album with some BTBAM vibes. The opening track is gorgeous, Siphon the Bad Blood is infectiously catchy and features some new screaming techniques from Rogers. Other highlights include I Appear Disappear, Wander Drug, and the t/t.

Something's fucky here. Alesana's new album is actually pretty good. I mean, its still melodramatic bullshit about Edgar Allen Poe, but that's a pretty cool concept. The high cleans no longer sound like a teenager wailing, the screams are pretty good, and the instrumentation is entertaining throughout.

This album is fucking lethal. And weird as fuck. The dual vocal attack is what AGATG has been lacking all these

A thoroughly heavy exercise in drone, all about subtle textures carving out palpably tense atmospheres. Voo-Vah sees boris performing their best SUNN O))) impression, and as a whole the album lives up to it?s name of being a destructive and heavy force, though not in the BORIS in all caps way I was hoping would show some influence here.

From First to Last Dead Trees
Decided to rewrite my two cents after a few more spins. This album is stupid fun, and while it's definitely
dominated by Spencer's vocals, the performance is dynamic and way less fucking annoying or grating than
anything he's done with Periphery. The lyrics are all alright when I consider what I ask for out of a band like
From First to Last, and that certainly isn't lyrical genius. I don't know whats left of the original lineup, but
the album is an above average metalcore romp and the bonus tracks are a good addition.

Also... Really? You never thought you'd say that? I say that at least twice during any given Periphery

The closest thing to a respectable album HH has released to date. There's nothing revolutionary or particularly special here, but the increased emphasis on screaming along with JT's pleasant clean singing and catchy melodies add the necessary punch for "Hurt" to stand on its own as a good release, not just a nostalgia trip back to high school.

LDK finally hits full force with an album that features production that does their sound justice and has been
lacking from their releases until now. The spoken word stuff gets old but luckily only appears towards the tail end
of the album. Aside from that, Big Dad Wolf is brimming with dynamic riffs and vocals that are chaotic but
refined. They still sound like La Dispute with bigger balls.

I listened to the stream and with the intro track expected some cheesy awfulness to ensue. What I got, while certainly complete with a layer of cheese, is a pretty great modern deathcore album. Nothing earth shattering or virtuosic, but a fun listen.

songs a big favor, for whatever reason. This flows really well. I may write a review at some point.

It's damn fine tech death, possibly dethroning Fallujah as my favorite TD from 2014.

Haven't decided on a rating yet, but it's a super fun rlisten.

I thought Frank Black was gonna come in after the drum intro of "Island" and shout "Shake your butt!" but then the fuzzy, reverb
drenched guitars started played surf-rock riffs and I remembered I was listening to the new Surfer Blood album and not "La La
Love You," and that I'm way too drunk right now to rate this properly, but I like it. And Pythons was sick, so I'm excited to dive into
this. Edit: well it’s nowhere near as immediately interesting as Pythons, nor as catchy, but the expanded instrumental
experimentation makes for a listen that I feel will grow on quality in time

Miles ahead of anything since Stand Up and Scream, though that isn't saying too much. Instead of sounding
like a bad hair/glam rock band with a dull metallic edge, AA goes back to a much more metalcore oriented
sound. It's basically what I imagine Bring Me The Horizon would sound like these days if they still used
screaming in their music. Album's a fun romp through mid-2000s scenecore and a good time if you don't
expect much out of it.

Intense is an understatement. How much I enjoyed it is still up in the air. BSW are a different band than they

themselves meandering and aimlessly wandering at times, much like their sound since their sludgy metalcore
opus "I Am God Songs."

Experimentation is present in abundance and more often than not the groups age rand expertise lead to rsuccessful songs that toy with a lot of genres and ideas. The album is gonna get ripped to shreds critically, rbut then again so did rTSOPTC when it came out.

The Ongoing Concept Handmade
Band did some SERIOUS growing up between their last LP and this release. The overblown honky tonk dramatics are gone, or at least toned down to less laughable and outright cheesy quantities. The vocals, whether screamed or sung, dominate the album and provide a rollercoaster ride through one of metalcore's most promising young acts.

The Sword Used Future
The Sword Apocryphon
The Used Lies for the Liars

The Word Alive Empire
You have every reason to hate this: The name is a bible reference, they're metalcore, and this is riddled with breakdowns. Also, the band used to be fronted by Craig Mabbit, pretty-boy frontman of Escape the Fate and former blessthefall fame. But this is an extremely tight EP. New vocalist Telle Smith knows how to sing and scream, and the guitarists are more than capable of penning some unique riffs and fun breakdowns. Give it a shot.

Vattnet Settler Errorzone
Volumes Via
Volumes doesn't make a step back in anyway, instead opting to stay firmly, stubbornly even, in the same spot at their EP, and a full length of the same old same old gets tiring very quickly. Still some of the better metalcore out there these days. And yeah, its groovy as fuck. Wormholes and Intake still rule face.

Whatever this band's obsession with ?creepy and spacey? synthesizer leads is, someone should tell them they come off as

Cynic Kindly Bent to Free Us
Cynic finally fizzles out and the genius well has run dry. Kindly Bent has arrived and brings with it a listening experience that is a tepid, meandering blur, a mess of ideas that tarnishes Cynic's perfect track record.
Cynic Re-Traced
Was there any reason for this? Cynic has yet to make a bad album, but this is cutting it close. Isn't this what we have Aeon Spoke for? New album please.

Emery You Were Never Alone
We may have never been alone during their hiatus, but Emery are only men and they seem to have reverted to their boring post The Question days. Save for a few memorable moments this album is the most bland thing they've put out since I'm Only a Man. Hopefully it's a grower, but it seems pretty shallow to me.
Emmure Speaker Of The Dead
Escape the Fate This War Is Ours
Get over it , Ronnie's gone. Disappointing vocal performance from Mabbit though. Step it up next album. More of Guillotine Pt. II style songs.

Frank Turner Be More Kind
Frank Turner treads some new ground and kinda nails it- the album is enough of a branching out sonically without being
alienating, it?s really admirable how much he expanded his sound and how natural and effortless it came out.
Significantly more dynamic and lush than his previous output, there is some tangible Eels influence here, and the album
is all the more better for it, utilizing strings and brass for the emotional peaks and valleys and subtle electronic
flourishes everywhere between. Let?s just rejoice that Make America Great Again was a one-off fluke and that Be More
Kind sits comfortably as a more than solid addition to Frank?s endlessly solid discography.

Edit- Coming back to this in 2024 it’s sad how much this was really the beginning of the end for Frank
Frank Turner Undefeated
I fucking love Frank Turner but I am out of apologies. Save for Ceasefire, there is nothing excellent here, and one or two
cuts that could be argued to be his worst ever. The fact that we are nearing 6pm on the east coast on release day and
I am the first person to rate this says a lot. I am glad we have the run from Sleep is for the Week to Positive Songs for
Negative People, cause for the time being it seems, Frank is out of things to say.

Really not that bad at all. The re-introduction of screaming is a welcome addition, and Woodruff's singing has beyond a doubt improved ten-fold. Gravestones is a cool tune. Idk. Decide for yourself, but this is not a 1.

This is pretty bad. This band went down a steep fuckin hill, this album makes Christmas Island look good. Oh well. I still love the trilogy of People/Can't Maintain/Knife Man. I just wish they'd make something... Better.
All Time Low Future Hearts
Album is everything that is wrong with pop punk and why people scoff when I say I enjoy the genre. Produced to hell and back, insipid lyricism, and boring as all hell pop song structuring make the album a flop. I'm ashamed that my hometown is associated with this band more than any other pop punk group. Why couldn't we have gotten Yellowcard or the Wonder Years or something here in Baltimore?

Whoever told ABR that stupid and random genre hopping interludes and bridges were a good way to be progressive needs to be shot, because these far too numerous moments of idiocy drag down an album that already has no unique flavor to it. What a let down, apparently they?ll never top Constellations.
Before Their Eyes Untouchable
Black Sabbath Forbidden
Blessthefall To Those Left Behind
A band from the "scene" days that stubbornly refuses to grow up or change, even Silverstein and Senses Fail have moved on to bigger and better things with their sound, however slight the tweaks. "To Those Left Behind" may as well address it's creators, who seem to have missed the music train to the present and are still releasing the same album with a different title years later. Does anyone care anymore? It's not bad... it just reeks of high school.

Cynic ReFocus
Cynic has a real issues with remasters. The removal of the growls ruined the traced remix, and the distortion on this one being turned into a thin, tinny mess is a travesty. It?s made all the more worse considering the rest of it sounds wonderful.

La Dispute Rooms of the House
Not sure when the userbase collectively turned on la dispute, but this album is a different beast than River or Wildlife. A much more subdued affair, songs like Woman (In Mirror) and Objects in Space provide the album's unexpected highlights with a near indie rock vibe that channels The National at least a little bit.

Enter Shikari A Flash Flood of Colour
After the effortless melding of genres displayed on new album "The Mindsweep," this album's hackneyed shoehorning of electronica and metalcore is painfully unsatisfying, and the politically fueled spoken words sections are cheesy and far too numerous. The transitions between these three elements are as subtle as a bag of bricks being thrown down a flight of stairs. By far the low point in ES's discography, and thank fuck they recovered from this mess.

My Chemical Romance The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts
I love The Black Parade with a burning, nostalgia fueled passion, and was moderately intrigued by this release. I purchased the bone colored vinyl reissue of the album from 2014, so the physical package didn't get me as excited as the bonus disc presented here... But unfortunately, the tracks are horribly produced drivel with a beyond intoxicated Gerard Way warbling his way over erratically mixed instrumentals in one of the most underwhelming re-releases ever to exist. Even diehard fans can steer clear of this.

Fucking zzzzzzzz out of 5. Man, buddy has really lost it. Between his bullshit with taking advantage of newer bands, inability to perform live, and complete 180 on a sound that worked for them on Pull the Thorns, senses fail has really just fizzled out into Hawthorne heights territory where all I can do is shake my head and wonder why they still bother.

If this is what passes as progressive metalcore then I?m gonna go ahead and say progressive metalcore sucks big djenty ballsacks. And between sucking those ballsacks it starts singing in a horrible falsetto that makes Spencer Sotelo and Rody Walker sound like Tom Waits.
