Loathe - I Let It in and It Took Everything (2020)
With haunting brutal riffs, horror-ish atmosphere and shoegaze tunes that are very reminiscent of Deftones, Loathe managed to make near perfect album. The atmosphere on this album is undeniably incredible, sets up tone for the whole record and you'll shiver in fear with how hellish most of the songs sound. That in contrast with the beautiful shoegaze songs make this record one of the best metalcore experiences ever.

Soften the Glare - Glint (2020)
An experimental journey through the minds of 3 insanely talented musicians, including legendary bassist Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne. This album is a very impressive, over-the-top fusion of progressive rock & jazz.

Maison book girl - Umi to Uchu no Kodomotachi (2019)
Japanese idol group Maison book girl hit us with their third major issue full of catchy J-Pop tunes. Presenting a more accesible, less experimental sound, the album follows the ideas developped in their previous major effort "yume" giving us a more mature album while staying true to their signature indie sound that defines them.

Mud Head - Demo [EP] (2020)
Dark, angry, and physically depressing. Mud Head conveys an atmosphere of raw emotions with strong industrial elements and soundscapes. This release is something you do not want to avoid. Turn off the lights, put your headphones on, and embrace this short somber journey.

Fair to Midland - Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True (2007)
These guys are criminally underrated and belong in a league of their own. They have a special sense for writing very unique and infectious melodies that will be sure to be stuck in your head.

Bambara - Stray (2020)
Cold, somber, and gripping, Stray is Bambara's most refined and realized album to date. Harrowing narratives of coming in contact with death. Searching for a connection...just out of reach.

No One Knows What The Dead Think - No One Knows What The Dead Think (2019)
Straightforward and pissed off Grindcore / Mathcore EP that is definitely worth your time. Short but easily some of the best stuff out there. It also has NieR references ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.
