Sometimes new bands do straight up phc/metalcore better than the big bands. This is one of those cases.

Another banger from these lads again, top AOTY contender for me. This band change their sound with every album and continue to improve. Fucking love them, do not sit on this, you will not be disappointed.

This is fucking filthy. Just now getting around to it. Super underrated band for their genre. The song "16 Roses" is a heartfelt song about the loss of vocalist Harrison's sister, a truly moving masterpiece. Give this EP a listen. Doubt you'll be disappointed.

Excellent album by Palace Winter and an amazing follow-up to "Waiting for the World to Turn." Highly recommended for fans of Django Django and other psychedelic indie rockers. Favorite track: Empire.

Wow, this EP is absolutely amazing. I want a full album from these dudes ASAP. They gathered some very talented musicians fore this masterpiece. This is some of the best(if not the best) Melodic Metal I have ever heard. It's honestly beautiful.

Really solid EP from Danny Leals (Upon A Burning Body Singer) brother whom is also the singer of this band. I dig the raw vocals and the heavy riffs. Good cleans, good screams, what more could you ask for? Give it a listen.

By far my favorite release this year. If you're into Japanese Post-Hardcore you'll definitely like this. Favorite track is Anemia but all of the tracks are fantastic.

Highly recommended for lovers of Indie Rock and 80's-style Synthpop. April Towers sound similar to BAG RAIDERS, that band that did that Shooting Stars song that became a meme. This album is no meme, though.

These guys are fantastic. If you like very technical Metalcore, this EP is for you. It's a damn shame this will be their last record. I think this is the best music they have put out. At least they are going out with an epic bang.

One of the first bands to introduce me to the Pop Punk genre. Henry's vocals are some of the best I've heard in a long time. Favorite track of the album is "This Song Is Dedicated To Nobody".

One of the coolest Sludge/Post-Metal albums I've heard in a while. Check it out if that sounds appealing to you and disregard the 80s hard rock looking album art, it's not representative of the sound.

Great album if you're into Mellow Rock/Chill Rock. Was surprised hearing it actually. Will be checking out the band in the future. Love Black Cloud a lot.
