Osi And The Jupiter - Nordlige Rúnaskog (Deluxe Version) (2019)
Not being the most familiar nor keen on this style of music, although I've slowly been easing into it, this record absolutely floored me. The perfect combination of ambient/atmospheric soundscapes with that nordic folk twist. This is beyond beautiful; words cannot do this record justice.

Wilderun - Veil of Imagination (2019)
Despite never hearing of these guys prior to this, I cannot express how blown away I was. This record is exactly what Opeth would've sounded like had they found a way to balance their heavy sections with their experimental folk/symphonic side.

Although it scored the lowest on my scale of Foals' records, there is much to be said (and heard) about Foals' performance here. Check the comments for my full review.

Slice the Cake - Odyssey to the West (2016)
This is easily one of the top deathcore records to exist (alongside Exoplanet). This is also one of the best concept albums I've ever heard. This truly is a musical masterpiece; this is art.

The Goslings - Grandeur of Hair (2006)
Imagine shoegaze but with buzzsaw instead of guitars, followed by a great mix of drone and noise. Very unique experience for people who want to try something outside of their comfort zone. This release is definitely something you will never forget.

Pain of Salvation - In the Passing Light of Day (Deluxe) (2017)
Pain of Salvation are the kings of concept albums. PoS delivers a heartbreaking story about coming to terms with our mortality as well as reflecting on who we are as individuals. The closing track to this record is something that will stick with me until I die. This is musicianship at its finest.
