5.0 classic
Altar of Plagues Teethed Glory and Injury
I may be pulling the trigger here a touch early, but this is your AOTY. It swirls, transcends, grabs, pulls, grows and takes a hold on the darkest parts of your emotions. It's a change from previous releases in more than a couple of ways. Track length suits a better all rounded sense and they have dropped the black metal intensity opting for a smoother post/experimental sound.

Esoteric A Pyrrhic Existence
2019 is quickly turning into one of those years where we question if those years to follow will ever live up to it. Esoteric have delivered on another doom masterstroke and in a year where Eye Of Solitude call it quits, 'A Pyrrhic Existence' stands tall - reaffirming the genre's vitality.

Trvth Black Horse Plague
An opus of a record, moving from free flowing prog, to the dankest of black metal growls. Yes, the run time is huge, but how could you not grace such a massive record without the time needed to allow for full expression? Trvth is a modern take at 70s inspired movements shaped with precision and crafted down to the "tee". The album is beauty rolled, twisted transcending the norm. rfree download - http://trvth.bandcamp.com/album/black-horse-plague
Ulcerate Shrines of Paralysis
Ulcerate Stare Into Death and Be Still
It's unfathomable, Ulcerate's consistently better than great performances over the years. Stare Into Death... is quickly becoming a top 3 Ulcerate experience. If you thought the closer was good, having the context of the rest of the record in front of it makes it all the more alimentary.

Alkaloid Liquid Anatomy
A definite shift in sound from these tyrants of death. The progressive elements are pushing to the fore-front hard. Liquid Anatomy is as lucid and clear as it can be while staying true to their swirling brand of death metal. Production is top-notch and clear without robbing the record of atmosphere. The Cthulhu still runs strong for this HP Lovecraft loving band.

'Death Atlas' is as enjoyable as a primal wagyu rib-eye, wrapped in prosciutto, pre-born veal and basted in duck fat. Probably with a side of baby's tears.

Death/Doom pulsating in a mechanical (dare I say) quasi-Portal style. The production only builds on the tensile riffing and spiraling instrumentation.

Eluveitie Helvetios
Eluveitie Origins
With more staying power than the previous releases it's clear that Eluveitie have a lot more to offer until their pool of talent runs dry. Origins picks up where Helvetios left off, bombastic rhthms and constant melodies interplay with the group's harsh growls. It's catchy, it's infectious - - a ride from start to finish. If there are any flaws to be found, it's in the band's ability to be completely comfortable with their sound.
Elysian Blaze Blood Geometry
Elysian Blaze's 2012 record resonates with some of the better acts of the genre. Rung out chords and a raw-'er' mix puch through well. Pick up for some Aust. doom along the lines of Noctis etc.

Australia's Hope Drone marks an excellent entry into the world of hybrid post-black metal. It's gritty, clean transcending the typical "pretty" sounds peppered in the genre. It's not for light listening, these four tracks were made with intent, and intent is surely given.

Nails Abandon All Life
Got seventeen minutes? Of course you do. Abandon All Life is the sultry hard-hitting sonic onslaught of oppressive heaviness. Keep in mind that short was never meant to be ?sweet? on Nail?s sophomore ?full-length?. From top to bottom (no matter how short that may be) Abandon All Life ensures the utmost of intensity highlighting the gift of Todd Jones behind the microphone. A fury rarely seen and upheld over the course of ear-splitting riffs and semi-thundering drum patterns gives life to a release over before it can be fully processed. See ?In Exodus? for proof that ?heavy metal? is real and relatable in today?s music industry. There?s no remorse, no guilt, no waiting period or white flag signalling the retreat. Nails have come to place their boot on the neck of the hardcore genre, tying in some truly ferocious chops along the way.

Enslaved Isa
Enthroned Sovereigns
A change up in members doesn't shake the foundations of Enthroned's music. At the same time, there's no 'real' disappointment as the new blood holds pace with the band's back catalog. 'Sovereigns' is another bombastic slab of black metal with a modern infusion. It's dynamic and shifts enough to maintain interest.

Fen has streamlined most of their sound to great affect, but they lose some of the momentum into the more groove based/faster sections - killing the climb of their moody crescendo(s).
Finsterforst Zerfall
Fleshgod Apocalypse Labyrinth
The technicality's still here, the pace is maintained and the symphonic is as prominent as ever. It's not perfect, this combination will always clash heads but it seems that Fleshgod Apocalypse are finally putting the two together in a manageable and interesting form. The album does what it needs to and well, but the almost fifty-five minutes of symphonic cliches tied over a melodic tech-death instrumental effort does tire the listener. It's got room to grow, just not a lot.

Sure, they'll never make another The Blackening again, but neither will they return to the early days. Bloodstone and Diamonds brings back accessible track times with only a mere couple extending on the seven minute mark. Flynn's vocals aren't any surprise, nor is the new inclusion on bass. Some stand-outs include: Sail Into The Black, In Comes The Flood and Imaginal Cells.

in the album's more bombastic tracks bordering on Lacuna Coil (honestly not a bad combination).
Not a bad listen at all. Over slightly too quick.

Tracks like Secular Haze, Year Zero (the album's singles) are standouts but the band did everything they needed to on the first release. Make no mistake, the album will Satan your socks off, but it will tickle your feet as it does so.

Lifelover Konkurs
Light the Torch The Beauty of Destruction
Despite the ever-growing hype train from the ashes of former Killswitch Engage frontman, Howard Jones and the other various artists joining on this new moniker, The Beauty Of Destruction leaves something to be desired. Devil You Know releases 47 minutes of passable metalcore filled to the brim with the nuances that made Jones' stint with KsE so successful. The Beauty Of Destruction is formulaic, but delivers everything it was meant to. 'For The Dead And Broken' stands as a distinguishable highlight.

Me And That Man New Man, New Songs, Same Shit Vol. 1
This is an approachable record featuring a motley crew of guest musicians and vocalists. Despite that, 'New Man...' doesn't push past a staple of compilation style soundscapes into something more. Matt Heafy's diversity is greater here than most of his later workings with Trivium and the Ihsahn featured "By The River" is remarkably fresh despite the safe bearings to which the album caters.
Mechina Xenon
Mefitis Emberdawn
Megadeth Th1rt3en
Quality song writing just took a back seat. All the basic elements are there including an incredibly unessacary amount of guitar wankery. It's Megadeth at its simplist, and bland form. It works but is far from exciting. 'Endgame' showed something of the right direction, however this strays far from that path.

It doesn't help when the groove has less edge, less gusto, the aggression is gone for a band who really should have been able to do better than this.

Slipknot teeters on the same formula with new blood and the surprising "Killpop" actually highlights the new record.

Another supposed "supergroup" happy to pick up piles of shit and massage it into their faces. How the fuck did the likes of Vext, ex-DevilDriver, ex-God Forbid etc manage to churn out mundane shit like this?

Bring Me The Horizon Sempiternal
Just saw this compared to a 2.0 version of Metallica. Threw up a little bit. Now that's all good and fine if you're willing to throw the band into the same boat. But, as far as it goes LULU looks impressive when compared to this. Changing the recipe slightly does not change the fact that cheese and chalk should never be put on the same plate.

It's a shame that this is so bipolar. Nothing here comes together. Sleep Terror has multi personality disorders that no medicine will fix no matter.

...not sure the lyrics could get any worse than the two singles currently released. Feel free to not test that FFDP...

edit: I stand corrected boys and girls; this is the pinnacle of lyrical evolution and should be treated as such.

Apologies Northlane. It turns out Alien isn't in fact the worst mainstream metal release of 2019.

How did these guys not see that kicking Vext out would be a bad bad not good idea? 2018 has somehow got that little bit more disappointing. Bland musicianship, rushed uninspired lyricism with a delivery to match.
