I had a hard time settling for 10 releases so I ended up going with what stuck with me the most this year (came down to 15), only top 3 will be considered anyway but I figured might as well put everything out there, here we go:

 

1- Post Malone - beerbongs & bentleys
2- Underoath - Erase Me
3- DGD - Artificial Selection
4- Drake - Scorpion
5- Travis Scott - ASTROWORLD
6- LANDMVRKS - Fantasy
7- Beartooth - Disease
8- The Amity Affliction - Misery
9- Polyphia - New Levels New Devils
10- State Champs - Living Proof
11- Band-Maid - World Domination
12- blessthefall - Hard Feelings
13- Parkway Drive - Reverence
14- Normandie - White Flag
15- Lil Skies - Life of a Dark Rose

 

*in no particular order after top 3

 

 

Contenders: A lot of great J-Rock releases this year, out of my head from the GazettE, DEZERT, Dir en grey, Plastic Tree and many more. I also want to put some K-Pop artists out there: Shoutout to my girl Chung Ha for her huge hit Roller Coaster this year, Jeon So Yeon and all the girls in (G)I-DLE who quite simply owned 2018. Some cloud rap artists: Lil Peep's post-humous releases, Shakewell, Fat Nick's tape and BEXEY who released some interesting projects throughout the year and will most certainly own 2019. Last thing I didn't feel like putting anywhere in the list but shoutout to 21 for releasing a fire endyear album; didn't see that coming at all.

Rest either didn't hit me hard enough or it passed me right by. Of course, can't list everything but many great releases this year from all the artists out there in their respective genre. Here's to 2019!
