Mycelia Dawn
This album, which features a deathcore/djent band, has a 13 minute song called "Drop The Baby", and it's one of the best metal songs of the year.

Say what you will about a virtual band based on League of Legends and how cheesy/dumb it is, this is one of the best metal albums of the year.
Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf
Rhapsody of Fire Power of the Dragonflame
Shadow Of Intent Melancholy
Ditching the Halo theme was the smartest move they ever did. By far their best album to date.

Beast In Black From Hell With Love
I was afraid from the first two singles that this was going to be another one of those shitty "80s nostalgia throwback" albums that we've been getting a lot of recently, but thankfully that isn't the case at least for the most part. They still retain that metal edge here, and man this album is album is fucking fun.

Haken Vector
Haken tone down their awful keyboard work from last time and shorten down the album length, and in return we end up with one of the best prog albums of the year.

Not sure if this is better or worse than Vector, but regardless this album rules

Hey Rosetta! Seeds
Hey Rosetta! Plan Your Escape
Ice Nine Kills The Silver Scream
It's the type of ridiculous tongue-in-the-cheek, cheesy metalcore that we've come to hate within the past few years, but Ice Nine Kills for the most part manages to make it work in the best way possible and I have no idea why.

Kamelot One Cold Winter's Night
Kamelot Haven
Kamelot The Shadow Theory
"It's a Kamelot album that isn't Karma, Epica or The Black Halo."rYeah, its called The Shadow Theory, so it's not those albums.
Killswitch Engage Alive or Just Breathing
Killswitch Engage As Daylight Dies
Leprous Coal
Leprous The Congregation
Leprous Malina
Leprous (almost) completely abandon their heavier side for a more moody and ambient sound. It may be a bit disappointing for fans of their earlier work, but the album is still loaded with gorgeous moments, particularly in the second half.
Living Sacrifice Reborn
Living Sacrifice Ghost Thief
Lost Ubikyst in Apeiron Abstruse Imbeciles Nailed on Slavery

an all female Japanese power metal act? I think I found the perfect album for Gyro

If Sowing doesn't 5 this I'll be disappointed
Moonsorrow Kivenkantaja
Moonsorrow Verisäkeet
Mycelia Nova
Mycelia Obey
Mycelia Apex
not as good as Dawn, but still it still solidifies Mycelia as one of the best and most overlooked death metal acts out there
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Skeleton Tree
Nigel Stanford Solar Echoes
Nine Inch Nails Broken
Nine Inch Nails Pretty Hate Machine
Nine Inch Nails The Fragile
Northlane Alien
There's practically an industrial metal vibe to this and it suits them really nicely. It's their best album with Marcus, and might be their best album overall.

dare I say, this band is better than anything that Muse as ever done.

It's almost as if Animals as Leaders fused with Thank You Scientist and Porcupine Tree. It's technically brilliant, visceral, and weird as fuck. I love it.
The Mercury Tree Countenance
The Mercury Tree Freeze In Phantom Form
This band really is the next "Porcupine Tree" in the best way possible, and this album proves it. 'Proteus' is arguably one of the best prog/psychedelic rock songs in recent memory.

10 Years Division
10 Years Feeding the Wolves
10 Years (How to Live) As Ghosts
Their best since The Autumn Effect. Wantland's return, Rasckulinecz's production, and what might be Jesse's best vocal performance to date, (how to live) As Ghosts not only marks a return to form for 10 Years, but a new chapter for the band that contains a very bright future.

A great mixture of some of the best elements of melodic death metal and power metal put together into one album. It's almost as if Wintersun and Rhapsody of Fire had a child. Plus the song about Skyrim is fucking rad.

finally realizing their potential, this is their best release yet.

It's as if the sounds of Haken and TesseracT merged together. It's a little overlong, but it's damn good.

And the fact that it's name your own price on their Bandcamp makes it doubly sweet.
Fight the Fade Second Horizon
Awful band name aside, this is a surprisingly enjoyable record that's both memorable and consistent, and contains one hell of a vocal performance.
Fight the Fade Fight The Fade
Fight the Fade mature their sound to deliver an excellent sophomore effort, but more importantly, a surprisingly unique record for it's genre.
Fight the Fade Masks
By far their heaviest release yet. While the production does tend to be over-saturated at times this is still really enjoyable while Zene Smith continues to be one of the best vocalists in the genre.

Definitely their best since Sound of Madness. That being said, there are a few songs that had them carry over their pop-influences from their last album which isn't entirely a good thing.

This feels more like a spiritual successor to Assassination of Julius Caesar, which is a slight disappointment seeing how much these guys tend to experiment with their sound. Still though, a lot of catchy tunes on this record.
Underoath Disambiguation
Uneven Structure Februus
Uneven Structure Paragon
Clean vocals are still kinda ass but overall this is much better than La Partition

A great debut album that's followed by an even better sophomore effort. These guys are definitely on the road to great things.

It took a long time, but this record has grown on me a lot since this came out. What I took as a cop out of mid-era Thrice sound, I realized that this is their most mature record. The vocal performances are what makes this, especially Steven's clean vocals. While I still like the other two records more, I can safely say that this is a great record.

Cut this by about 10-15 minutes and you have yourself a really solid, fun as fuck pop-metal album. Noora's vocals only add to this.

Dead Letter Circus Dead Letter Circus (2018)
a definite improvement over their last album. it's like there's actual energy that was put into here, though they're still trying to stick to the bland indie radio rock sound in a few songs.
Deadly Circus Fire The Hydra’s Tailor
a bit too much filler here but overall some genuinely great songs that show a lot of potential
Deftones Saturday Night Wrist
Demon Hunter Demon Hunter
Demon Hunter The World Is a Thorn

Easily their softest and most melodic album. It would work, if only Clark sounded like he gave a damn and they had gotten a different producer. Still though, I'm probably going to buy this just for the nostalgia.

For an album that's supposed to reflect on what Mike has gone through over the past year I was expecting something more powerful and emotionally resonant. Not saying that it doesn't have it's moments for sure, but I feel like he should've gone the extra mile here.

Overall, there isn't really anything that's particularly groundbreaking, but there are some really great songs on here nonetheless.

this thing is groovy as fuck, though the vocals aren't really that interesting
Veil of Maya The Common Man's Collapse

another young post-hardcore/alt-metal band that shows promise, but for fucks sake they need a new harsh vocalist.

Not much variety, but as it is, it's pretty decent.
Voyager Ghost Mile
We Lost the Sea Departure Songs
While She Sleeps Brainwashed
Wild Fire Revolt
Imagine if Red and Breaking Benjamin came together, went political, and had guitar solos
Within Temptation Resist
a very fun pop-metal album. great vocals with a very polished production and good instrumentation. though I do wish the guitars had a bit more punch to them.
Wolves at the Gate Reprise
Wolves at the Gate Eclipse
Definitely their most "mainstream" record. It's got good production, nice melodies and great performances from both vocalists, yet at the same time there's nothing here that other bands haven't done before, some even better. It's a solid record, but nothing really blew me away.
Wolves in the Throne Room Celestite

Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria

BABYMETAL Metal Resistance
Bad Wolves Disobey
If they did less of the harsh rap-like vocals and had better production then they have to potential to release a damn good album.

Battle Beast Bringer of Pain
Beartooth Disease

pretty much a more generic version of the s/t. it's got catchy parts but the lyrics are rather cringey at times
Born Of Osiris The Simulation
It's another Born of Osiris album. It's fun, well produced, and catchy, but that's really all it is in the end which doesn't amount to much. Though the short album length does benefit.
Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin
Breathe Atlantis Shorelines
Caliban Elements
Typical metalcore release. Never really got into this band I'm not sure how it stacks up to the rest of their discog but I thought this was pretty decent, albeit generic
Celldweller Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head

it's another Hatebreed album
Haywyre Dubsonic

album reminds me of Fever 333, good vocalists, good energy, and good instrumentation that's bogged down by cringey lyrics and really odd songwriting choices. still though there are some legit good songs on here.

Lacuna Coil Delirium
Lamb of God Lamb of God
Light the Torch The Beauty of Destruction
Light the Torch They Bleed Red
A slight improvement compared to their last album, but it still doesn't make up for Howard's obnoxious cleans and dated production.
Linkin Park Reanimation
Lione/Conti Lione/Conti
it's nice to see Fabio is still around. The album is certainly fun, but there's really no surprises if you're familiar with his career.

Modest Mouse We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank

Sacrificing most of their djenty grooves in favor of a more meat-and-potatoes metalcore sound, a sad disappointment indeed. Though the album isn't without some pretty darn good bangers.

Myles Kennedy Year of the Tiger
Neck Deep The Peace And The Panic
It's pretty much everything you would expect from a pop-punk outfit. Nothing offensive, but nothing really worth sinking your teeth into.

Why the fuck does this have a 100 on Metacritic?
Soilwork Sworn to a Great Divide

Soulfly Ritual
Soundtrack (Film) The Transformers The Movie
One of the few reasons why this film is even notable in the first place. The soundtrack is way too dependant on other artists to help the film gain popularity, even if some of the songs are fun to listen to. It's a decent soundtrack all the same despite it belonging to a film that only appealed to a cult following.
Starset Transmissions
This is a really, really over-produced record. I like it.
Starset Vessels
Stone Sour Meanwhile In Burbank...
There really isn't much to talk about when it comes to this. You know the songs, guitar riffs, drumming, and the lyrics. It's all a matter of how well they perform them. Stone Sour does fine, but in the end it makes you want to listen to the original versions.

Can't help but feel bored by this. It's a nice album, but nice doesn't really cut it.
Andy Black The Shadow Side
Given the constant mockery that Black Veil Brides gets, it's at least commendable for Andy Biersack to at least attempt something different in comparison to his other works. However, despite a few decent moments, The Shadow Side is ultimately an empty and forgettable affair that borrows the same elements from other and more popular pop artists out there, and is most likely not going to change your mind about Biersack in general.

I'm still not convinced if Giacomo is the right replacement for Fabio as the vocalist. While he certainly is a better singer and I'll give him credit that he's not trying to sound like Fabio, I don't think he fits in very well with the music.

Weezer Pacific Daydream
While She Sleeps You Are We
Wovenwar Honor Is Dead

2.0 poor
10 Years Violent Allies
This album is proof on why Howard Benson is an absolute shit stain in the music industry.
All That Remains Madness
"'Madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something to change.'

Apparently, All That Remains didn't get the memo."

Snide, considering you do the same thing with your music, I don't think you got it either
Andrew W.K. You're Not Alone
Black Veil Brides Set the World on Fire
Blessthefall To Those Left Behind
Bullet For My Valentine Gravity
time to tag this band as 'alternative rock' now I guess

Chevelle Point #1
Coldplay A Head Full of Dreams
Crossfaith Ex_Machina
Crown the Empire Sudden Sky
Decyfer Down Scarecrow
Devour The Day S.O.A.R.
Disturbed Indestructible
Emarosa Peach Club
another pop rock album that sounds like every pop rock album out there
Falling in Reverse Coming Home
Fear Factory Transgression
Godsmack When Legends Rise
Greta Van Fleet Anthem of the Peaceful Army
I'm really getting tired of these "retro-70s/80s throwback rock" bands

it's getting old and stale, much like the music they're playing
Haken Affinity
diet Dream Theater

The synths are so glaringly awful, the production is incredibly bland and the vocal performance is so uninspired. Why do people like this again?
Highly Suspect MCID
Imagine Dragons Smoke + Mirrors
Lastwatch Leave a Light On
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight
Nickelback Here and Now
I don't really think it's as bad as Dark Horse, but it's still pretty bad. "This Means War" and "When We Stand Together" are the only songs I find tolerable.
Nickelback Silver Side Up
Nine Lashes From Water to War
Nothing More The Stories We Tell Ourselves
The nu-metal influences in this practically ruin this.
Opeth Sorceress
Porcupine Tree On the Sunday of Life
Seether Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces
Shinedown Threat to Survival
Skinbound Between Blood And Angels
Suicide Silence Suicide Silence
Theory of a Deadman Scars and Souvenirs
Their slower songs are much better than their faster songs. Their faster songs sound like a country band that is trying to turn rock.
Theory of a Deadman Savages
It may not change your opinion on Theory of a Deadman, but admittedly enough it's a vast improvement over their last three albums.
Thousand Foot Krutch Exhale
Three Days Grace Outsider
just a jump to the left
Tool Fear Inoculum
7empest might as well be one of their best songs to date, and Chocolate Chip Trip is a fun little instrumental, shame I can't say the same with the rest of the album, everything else is just so goddamn boring.
Toothgrinder I Am
Three Days Grace sure are consistent aren't they?
We As Human We As Human

1.5 very poor
Black Veil Brides We Stitch These Wounds
Blessthefall Hard Feelings
Bring Me the Horizon That's the Spirit
Dance Gavin Dance Tree City Sessions
I'm probably going to offend people by saying this but this is terrible
Epica The Phantom Agony
Family Force 5 ReAnimated
Family Force 5 III
Family Force 5 Time Stands Still
What in the actual fuck happened to these guys?
From Ashes To New The Future
In Flames Battles
My Chemical Romance Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
Nickelback The Long Road
Nickelback No Fixed Address
Parkway Drive Reverence
why do we drive in parkways and park in driveways?
Red (USA) Release the Panic: Recalibrated
Unnecessary, acts more of an apology letter to their fanbase, and the strings are more of a distraction rather than part of their style. It just flat out sucks.
Sleeping With Sirens Gossip
Sonata Arctica Talviyo
Sonic Syndicate We Rule the Night
Starset Divisions
The Afters Life Is Beautiful
Three Days Grace Human
Veil of Maya Matriarch
another day, another shitty deathcore band
Veil of Maya False Idol
False Periphery

1.0 awful
All That Remains The Order of Things
Asking Alexandria Like a House on Fire
maybe we should stop asking Alexandria
Disturbed Evolution
ironic album title tbh
Five Finger Death Punch And Justice for None
Hinder All American Nightmare
Imagine Dragons ƎVOLVE
Linkin Park already released the worst album of the year, we didn't need another one
Imagine Dragons Origins
King 810 Proem
King 810 Memoirs of a Murderer

An album that is so inoffensive that it's actually offensive
Muse Simulation Theory
I didn't know Matt Bellamy was going direct Ready Player Two
Nickelback Dark Horse
Nickelback Curb
Nickelback The State
Nickelback All the Right Reasons
Nickelback The Best of Nickelback Volume 1
no...just no
Nine Lashes Ascend
Rings of Saturn Gidim
I wonder how many riffs they stole to make this record
Skillet Unleashed
desperately appealing to the lowest common denominator the same way Michael Bay appeals to penises and Stephanie Meyer appeals to vaginas
Sonic Syndicate Confessions
Theory of a Deadman The Truth Is...
Thirty Seconds to Mars America
credit to hansoloshotfirst:
Thousand Foot Krutch Oxygen: Inhale

I think I've found an album that's worse than Tru-Kvlt-Metal
