Numenorean - Adore (2019)
Adore is such a relaxing and ethereal sounding record. Imagine if Gojira went a little black with a hell of a lot of atmospheric; this is what you get!

Northlane - Alien (2019)
Pretty obvious pick from my side as this is my favorite release this year and the album means a lot to me. Northlane stepped up their game with Alien and it absolutely delivers.

Rolo Tomassi - Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It (2018)

Wreck and Reference - Absolute Still Life (2019)
Alien soundscapes, detached voices, and fragmented vignettes adorn these recordings. A must for fans of experimental music.

E-an-na - Nesfârşite (2019)
This album just shows how far metal can go and how different it can sound sometimes to more traditional Metalcore or Prog, the addition of folk-like instruments mixed in with the core-like breakdowns, the guitar solos and great vocals this music came with a surprise and I quite frankly loved it. This album is currently one of my favourites this year, If you looking for something fresh and different I highly recommend this album and if you are open minded about metal I reckon you will enjoy it.

Latitudes - Part Island (2019)
There hasn't been a single track this year that blew me away as hard as the opening track on this record did. This record is ridiculously melodic as it is dark and mysterious.

Cold Hart - Good Morning Cruel World (2019)
Cloud rapper and GOTHBOICLIQUE member Cold Hart comes in strong with his debut album 'Good Morning Cruel World' supported by longtime collaborator YAWNS on production to perpetuate the Peep legacy. The duo brings out the guitars and takes on a more Pop Punk/Alternative sound this time around, drifting away from their usual trap beats. A fun listen and nice return to form for Cold Hart.

Distinguisher - Hell from Here (2019)
This album is pure filthy awesomeness. If you like your Deathcore/Metalcore raw and hard, you will love this. It has some serious Thy Art Is Murder & Fit For An Autopsy vibes. It was a smart decision for Stay Sick Records to pick up these dudes to release their sophomore full-length album. Don't sleep on these dudes!

Ex Ømerta - Ex Ømerta (2019)
I really don't know how to express so much to these guys. If you love Hard Rock stuff these fellas you really need to check them out. In my eyes, it can be a great AOTY.

Ihlo - Union (2019)
Beautiful, mystifying and fun progressive metal. Makes one want to lose themselves in an alluring void. The only reason you shouldn't give this a listen is because you're deaf.

Sectioned - Annihilated (2018)
A brain melting onslaught of mathy powerviolence from basically the same guys who gave us Frontierer. One of my heavy 2018 faves.

Illyria - The Carpathian Summit (2019)

Otoboke Beaver - Itekoma Hits (2019)
Raw, chaotic and fueled with rage. That's how you would describe this album. These four women say what they want to say and they are not afraid of it. If you're into chaotic and somewhat obscure music, this release is just for you. Garage punk never sounded better.

Drowse - Light Mirror (2019)
Light Mirror is a reflective collection of snapshots that confront bitter truths and realizations through melancholic soundscapes as cold as the Icelandic surroundings from which it was conceived.

Glassing - Spotted Horse (2019)
Spotted Horse is as enigmatic as its namesake. Best listened in the dead of night with a clear mind so the desert's pale moonlight can wash over you.
