For me, nothing compelling released in April besides Lucky Boys Confusion.

 

EDIT: also, not shown on KL, The Source from Ayreon is probably my AOTM.

Dead Rabbitts, really enjoyed that album more than any others on the list. Solid 9/10

I have to add, it's MUCH better than the Falling in Reverse album. That was just not good

April had A LOT of good releases. A few underground gems like Prisoner (Blackened Hardcore), Asira (Progressive Black Metal), Never Prey (Beatdown/Death Metal) or But The Shadows Have Foes (Crust/Post-Metal) have a spot on my list. Some well known bands as Enterprise Earth, Deez Nuts, Loathe, While She Sleeps and New Found Glory did an amazing job with their new efforts. The other bands that I have on my list are: 
Virulent Depravity
No Zodiac (HUGE ALBUM, GIVE IT A SPIN BECAUSE IT'S THE HEAVIEST SHIT YOU WILL HEAR THIS MONTH. Actually is my AOTM)
Decades Of Deception
All For Nothing
The Korea
Steps Of Odessa
Refuge
Artifical Brain
No Omega
The Willow
Ghost Bath
Uneven Structure
Your Chance To Die
Warpath
Of Sound and Fury
Shadow Of Intent (My second favorite album of the month)
Friday Giants

I'm honestly surprised that Gorillaz have no votes, with that being said, my vote had to be between digital druglord and You are We, You are we took it simply because I had more ear worms from that album, but both were honestly very solid.

Did you check out Tigerwine and Andres? Out of all those on the list I'd say these 2 are the ones ypu're most likely to like, based on what I see here about your music taste

No question, while she sleeps. Pretty much destroys every other option here.

Not enough indie, out of those 2 options you like Andrés more.

Too bad some of the most underrated bands are the best, more people should give HIL a listen to

I wasn't overly enthused by stuff this month, though the new He is Legend album is fantastic.

Def While She Sleeps, that's an AOTY contender.

 

The runner up for this month would have to be K-DOT

Okay, this was really close between While She Sleeps and He Is Legend, I decided to go with the latter. Here's my full list, it's not quite as long as last month's but it was by no means a bad month for releases. I'm re-posting again because there was some stuff missing that I felt shouldn't be missing.

 

Top 25 Albums:

He Is Legend – Few

While She Sleeps – You Are We
Deep Purple – Infinite

Artificial Language – The Observer

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Revival

Hawking – Diverge

Tigerwine – Die With Your Tongue Out

Ninjaspy – Spüken

Flux Conduct – Yetzer Hara

Blood Youth – Beyond Repair

Ulver – The Assassination of Julius Caesar

Shadow of Intent – Reclaimer

Deadlights – Mesma

Little Cub – Still Life

Falling in Reverse – Coming Home

Charlatan – Remarkable

Fractal Universe – Engram Of Decline

Vök – Figure

All But One – Square One

Les Discrets – Prédateurs

Virulent Depravity – Fruit Of The Poisoned Tree

Martyr Defiled – Young Gods

The New Year – Snow

The Vacant Lots – Endless Nights

BNQT – Volume 1

 

Top 5 EPs:

Eternity Forever – Fantasy

Michael Barr – +1

Balance & Composure – Slow Heart

Caution: Thieves – Songs From The Great Divide

Saint Slumber – Youth//1

 

Eternity Forever probably would have gotten my vote if it had been on the list but I'm totally fine with giving it to He Is Legend.

1. While She Sleeps

2. Dead Rabbitts

3. He Is Legend.

Those are my top 3, wasn't a top 5 because nothing else really caught my attention. He Is Legend did an amazing job on their new album, but nothing will ever beat I am Hollywood. That album killed it back in the day. I can't wait till June, That month is gonna be my month for music so far this year. I was a huge eighteen visions fan back in the day and I still am. I can't wait for that, Miss May I, In Hearts Wake, Rise Against, and Currents. May Looks like it's gonna be a pretty decent month as well. While she sleeps new album is amazing, that's why i voted for it for april. They never disappoint
